#TrackoftheDay: “Whistlin’ Past the Graveyard”

If you didn’t know this was originally a Tom Waits song, you might think it was an original Screamin’ Jay Hawkins song that Tom Waits covered. Because it fits so perfectly with both artists. This was from his 1994 album Somethin’ Funny Goin’ On.

Residente Responds To J Balvin’s Latin Grammys Boycott, Compares His Music To A Hot Dog Cart

Shortly after the nominations for the 2021 Latin Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday, Colombian superstar J Balvin took to Twitter to express his frustrations with the awards show, despite being nominated three times this year. “The Grammys don’t value us, but they need us,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet, per Remezcla. “We give them ratings, but they don’t give us respect.” J Balvin encouraged nominated artists to not attend the Latin Grammy Awards ceremony in November.

Burna Boy – “Want It All” (Feat. Polo G)

Since releasing his Grammy-nominated Twice As Tall last year, the Nigerian star Burna Boy has made it clear that he’s putting in work on a new album.

Loose Buttons – “First To Know, Last To Understand”

We’ve been regularly checking in on the rollout for What’s On Outside, the new one from the young, poppy, guitar-powered New York rock band Loose Buttons. Today, following “Window Seat (Freak You Out)” and “Minor Leaguer,” the band is back with their best single yet from this project. It’s called “First To Know, Last To Understand,” and the band has this to say about it:

cumgirl8 – “Pluck Me”

Look. I know. The band name. I know. But I assure you this new song by cumgirl8 is good. It’s called “Pluck Me,” and it’s the latest single from the New York trio’s RIPcumgirl8 EP. The band recorded the four-song project with their frequent collaborator Ben Greenberg — you know, formerly of the Men, currently of Uniform and Hubble, one of NYC’s most prolific producers of skuzzy rock music — and even though I am afraid of what it’s going to do to the algorithms that dictate my online experience, ...

Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, & Kendrick Lamar Will Play The Super Bowl Halftime Show

Jay-Z has overseen some decent Super Bowl halftime shows so far. Since Roc Nation took over production duties for the Pepsi-sponsored NFL championship intermission, there’s been the J.Lo/Shakira thing, and then last year’s Weeknd set. All of that pales in comparison to the lineup that will perform at Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles.

Delays’ Greg Gilbert Dead At 44

Greg Gilbert, frontman of the British indie rock band Delays, has died of bowel cancer at 44. His brother and bandmate Aaron Gilbert announced the news on social media. “This afternoon at 2:22; we walked my brother back home to somewhere out there in the ether,” he wrote. “Greg died surrounded in the endless love that us & all of you have given him on this journey, and we will never be able to fully express how much it meant to him (and all of us) to have you by our side lifting us up like a win...

Sitcom – “Kiss My Baby”

In November, Jake Lazovick’s shapeshifting project Sitcom is releasing its sophomore album, Smoothie, the follow-up to 2018’s excellent Be The One You Love. We posted “Gutter” from it a couple months ago and he formally announced the album a few weeks back with “Brain Freeze.” Today, he’s back with another single, the pinched and tinny “Kiss My Baby,” which Lazovick co-produced with Jockstrap’s Taylor Skye.

Post Malone’s Posty Fest Cancelled For 2021

Post Malone was all set to host his third Posty Fest on Halloween weekend at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas — home of his beloved Dallas Cowboys — with a lineup that included an impressive list of hip-hop superstars (Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert, Roddy Ricch, Jack Harlow, Rod Wave, Flo Milli, etc.) and some truly great heavy rock bands (Turnstile, Gatecreeper). But alas, as Variety reports, the fest has been called off for 2021.

Ghost – “Hunter’s Moon”

In addition to a new score from horror master John Carpenter, the upcoming movie Halloween Kills will feature an original end credits song from theatrical Swedish metal masters Ghost. The band’s Tobias Forge met Ryan Turek, Vice President Of Feature Film Development at Blumhouse Productions, at a Ghost show in Los Angeles in 2018, striking up a rapport that eventually led to a visit with director David Gordon Green on the Halloween Kills‘ set in North Carolina. Listen to “Hunter’s Moon,” Ghost’s...

David Bowie’s Lost Album Toy Will Get an Official Release: Hear the First Track “You’ve Got A Habit Of Leaving”

To the serious Bowie fan, the unreleased self-covers album Toy is not a secret. This collection of reworked pre-“Space Oddity” songs recorded with his touring band from his 2000 Glastonbury appearance was bootlegged a year after it was shelved in 2001. And it has been re-pressed illegally nearly every year since, sometimes as Toy and sometimes as The Lost Album. Some of the fourteen cuts popped up as b-sides over the years, but the whole album? Maybe, fans thought…one day. Well, that one...

Mo Troper – “The Expendables Ride Again”

Portlamd-based Mo Troper is a prolific purveyor of fuzzed-out power-pop. His new album Dilettante, set for release just two weeks from now, features no less than 28(!) tracks — a number that, in conjunction with Troper’s chosen genre, strongly invites a Guided By Voices comparison. Bob Pollard would also be proud of deeply intriguing song titles like “All My Friends Are Venmo,” “Cum On My Khakis,” “Armpit,” and “My Parrot.”

Lil Wayne Is Rapping Like A Legend Again

Lil Wayne’s verse on Tyler, The Creator’s “Hot Wind Blows” begins with a familiar Weezy simile. The N’Awlins-bred emcee has just stopped the beat and said “excuse me, pardon me,” like an elder preacher beginning a sermon. A bar later, he is lumping the hard-blowing wind into Mother Nature’s family tree like it’s “arguing about some baby father beef.” It is a multi-layered line; you have to play it back to catch the intricacies of what he is saying. From there, Weezy is an auteur, bounding into T...

That podcast I keep recommending.

As you may have noticed, I'm a big fan of Andrew Hickey's podcast "A History of Rock Music in 500 Songs." I discovered it around the first of this month. (I forget why, maybe Spotify pushed it.) And I've truly binged on it, getting all the way through the 133 episodes that are currently available.  There are bonus episodes, most of which are available only to those who subscribe on Patreon, and I've done that, the first and only time I've subscribed to an individual on social media. I have som...

Palace – “Lover (Don’t Let Me Down)”

Not to be confused with the early Will Oldham projects that used permutations of the same name, the Palace we’re here to discuss today — the Palace that’s a going concern — is a band out of London making expansive, emotive alt-rock. At the center of their sound is Leo Wyndham’s falsetto, which bears more than a passing resemblance to Jeff Buckley, though I also hear traces of My Morning Jacket and DIIV and alt-J in their sound. As if telegraphing the Buckley influence, Palace’s new song out toda...

Grimes Shares New Song “LOVE” In Response To Online Hate

Grimes has been in the news a whole lot lately — for serving on the judging panel of the goofy singing-contest show Alter Ego, for repeatedly defending Elon Musk online, and for no longer being in a relationship with Elon Musk. Clearly, all this attention is starting to wear on her. Today, Grimes has shared a short new song called “LOVE,” writing on Instagram that she wrote the song “in response to all the privacy invasion, bad press, online hate and harassment by paparazzis I’ve experienced thi...

Elton John & Stevie Wonder – “Finish Line”

Two of the biggest stars of the ’70s — maybe the two biggest stars of the ’70s — have a new song together in 2021. Elton John and Stevie Wonder were the first two artists to have albums that debuted at #1 on the Billboard album charts, back in the pre-SoundScan days when that was pretty much an impossible task, and they’ve worked together a few times over the years. Stevie Wonder, for instance, played harmonica on Elton John’s 1983 hit “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues,” and both Wonder...

The Month In Metal – September 2021

Mike Krawczynski remembers the time two rock stars crashed his record store. “We were just about to close up,” Krawczynski says over Zoom. “They came in and started going mental. All of my employees’ jaws were dropping. They pulled out this massive pot bud that was almost fluorescent red. Everyone looked at me and I said, ‘Well, close the door, okay? We’re closed.’ All of these kids outside were pressed up against the window.”
