The fashion universe now has a myriad of latest collections to give all lads a promising look for each occasion.

Watch Rick Astley & Blossoms Cover Smiths Songs In Manchester

Last month, Rick Astley announced that he planned to team up with indie-pop outfit Blossoms for two Smiths cover shows. Well, Astley and his backing band have officially made good on the first show, playing a round of Smiths songs at Albert Hall in the beloved post-punk band’s own hometown of Manchester. (Bold!) If you don’t live anywhere near Manchester (or tomorrow night’s location, London), worry not: there’s plenty of fan-shot footage of Astley and Blossoms performing “What Difference Does I...

Conway The Machine – “Piano Love” (Prod. The Alchemist)

He’s already announced the next one, God Don’t Make Mistakes, his debut album for Eminem’s Shady Records. And today, he’s sharing its lead single.

Watch Thom Yorke & Stanley Donwood Discuss Working Together On Radiohead’s Album Art

Stanley Donwood has worked closely with Thom Yorke (aka Dr. Tchock) on the artwork for every Radiohead album since 1995’s The Bends. Given the extent to which his work has defined their iconography, Donwood is practically a member of the band at this point. And if you’ve ever wanted to see him and Yorke hanging out and reflecting on that creative relationship, you’re in luck.

Stream London Punk Band Game’s Frantic, Feverish New EP Legerdemain

On the same day that the Chisel and Big Cheese both put out new music, we’ve now got another ripper from another UK punk band. Game — the London punks, not the former G-Unit member — released their debut album No One Wins in 2019. The band features Fucked Up drummer Jonah Falco, a man who’s currently producing a lot of the best UK punk and hardcore — as well as former members of UK bands like Arms Race and Violent Reaction. But the real draw in Game is singer Ola Herbich, who bellows most of her...

Stream Glean’s Hooky, Fuzzy New Hardcore EP Things We Must Embrace

Last year, just before the pandemic hit, the young San Diego hardcore band Glean released their demo. Glean’s timing wasn’t the best, but that demo showed a ton of promise. Glean’s sound was melodic and emotive, and it made me reach back to the early ’90s for comparison points like Sugar and Quicksand. Today, Glean have made good on all that promise with a strong new three-song EP called Things We Must Embrace.

When Jan Swafford Was Asked To Review An AI-Written “Beethoven Tenth” Symphony

“Not for me,” I said. “I know pretty much what I’ll think about it, and my review could get snarky.” “If so, that would be all right with us,” VAN said. “Well, OK,” I groaned back. So here I am and here goes.

Bruno Mars And Anderson .Paak’s Silk Sonic Album Is Coming Next Month

The duo of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak announced An Evening With Silk Sonic, their debut collaborative album under the name Silk Sonic, at the beginning of the year. An Evening With Silk Sonic was originally supposed to come out in the fall, but after sharing the singles “Leave The Door Open” and “Skate,” they announced that . Some parts “need a little more… grease,” Mars explained. But they apparently got the grease delivered on rush order, as they’ve now pushed the album’s release date back...

Dwayne Johnson Makes His Official Debut As A Rapper On Tech N9ne’s “Face Off”

The Rock has been at least rap-adjacent for a couple decades now. In 2000, a young Dwayne Johnson served as hypeman on the ska-inflected Wyclef Jean single “It Doesn’t Matter.” In 2016 he arguably spit bars in character as Maui on “You’re Welcome” from the Moana soundtrack, adopting the familiar cadence of songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda on the song’s bridge. And now he has made his official debut as an MC on the new Tech N9ne album.

The Transformative Conductor: David Alan Miller @ 30 Years Leading The Albany Symphony

“The orchestras I’ve worked with have been a bit like ocean liners. Very big, little hard to turn around. And I would say the Albany Symphony is like a sailboat. It’s flexible, it’s responsive, it can really turn on a dime. And a lot of that is David.”  – Albany Times-Union

The Rolling Stones Explain Why They’ve Dropped “Brown Sugar” From Their Setlist (For Now)

“Brown Sugar,” the opening track from the Rolling Stones’ 1971 masterpiece Sticky Fingers, is one of the band’s biggest hits. It reached #1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 and has been a mainstay of their setlists for more than 50 years, since even before the studio version was released. It is also a messy and problematic song in which white men fetishize sex with Black women using lots of allusions to slavery. In his column The Number Ones, my colleague Tom Breihan summed up the thorniness of “Brown Sug...

The New Musicology: Beethoven Was Just an “Average White Composer”?

“These various controversies are far from simple disputes between ‘conservatives’ and ‘progressives’ but emblematic of a discipline in which some protagonists lack a sense of its purpose and identity, or any real belief that music has value in and of itself.” – The Spectator

Witness The Extreme Cringe-Levels Of Madonna’s Interview With Jimmy Fallon

Madonna has a long history of late-night talk-show hijinks, going back at least to the famous 1994 Letterman interview where she cussed a bunch of times and wouldn’t leave the stage. Last night, Madonna spent a very long time talking to Jimmy Fallon, who is probably the last person that anyone should ask to interview Madonna in front of an audience. She was there to promote her Madame X concert movie on Paramount+, but she was really there for some hijinks.

Atmosphere – “Barcade” (Feat. Aesop Rock & MF DOOM)

More than 21 years ago, I saw the Minneapolis rap group Atmosphere open a show at New York’s Knitting Factory. At that show, the late Eyedea was Atmosphere’s hypeman, and they were great. The bill also included a couple of standout New York underground acts, J-Live and MF DOOM, all opening for Chuck D’s terribly and justifiably forgotten rap-metal group Konfrontation Kamp. DOOM and Atmosphere soon became underground rap institutions, and DOOM released his 2004 album Mm..Food on the Atmosphere-af...

Dave Grohl Shares Storyteller Chapter About The Greatest Night Of His Musical Life

Dave Grohl just published his book The Storyteller, a memoir of sorts comprising narrative snapshots from his life and career. The project began during the pandemic with the Instagram account @davestruestories, which in turn evolved into a blog, also called Dave’s True Stories. Today one of the stories in the book has made its way back to that blog.

Wie sich Brustkrebs auf Betroffene & ihre Beziehungen auswirkt

Obwohl es sich um die weltweit am häufigsten diagnostizierte Krebserkrankung handelt, wird immer noch nicht ständig offen über Brustkrebs gesprochen. Zusätzlich zur Diagnose, Operationen und der Behandlungen kann sich Brustkrebs auf unerwartete Weise metastasieren und das Sexleben, Beziehungen, das eigene Körperbild und die Identität von Betroffenen verändern. Obwohl derzeit eine von acht Frauen im Laufe ihres Lebens an Brustkrebs erkrankt, bleiben die intimen Details, die das Leben mit und ...

The Chisel – “Retaliation”

Last year, the great UK punk band the Chisel got together in London. Since then, they’ve cranked out three EPs of simplistic shit-stomping leftist anthems that draw on street-punk, oi, and old-school hardcore: Deconstructive Surgery last year, Come See Me / Not The Only One and Enough Said this year. If you’ve heard those records, you already know what time it is.

Hatchie – “Crush” (Jennifer Paige Cover)

In 1998, the singer Jennifer Paige released a sparkling and evocative teen-pop song called “Crush.” The song peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Paige’s only real hit. In an era of deep indie rock snobbery, “Crush” still made its way to the indie rock world; the Dismemberment Plan released a great “Crush” cover on a 2001 split EP with Juno. And now the Australian singer and songwriter Hatchie has released her own version of “Crush.”
