Brody Dalle Pleads Not Guilty To Contempt Charge In Custody Dispute With Josh Homme

Brody Dalle has pleaded not guilty to contempt in her ongoing battle for child custody with ex Josh Homme. As Rolling Stone reports, the Queens Of The Stone Age frontman accused the Distillers founder of violating their October 2020 custody agreement by not allowing him to see their kids since August 26. Homme reportedly wants Dalle to face fines or receive community service or jail time. Dalle, meanwhile, has accused Homme of domestic violence and verbal harassment.

Dion – “Angel In The Alleyways” Feat. Patti Scialfa & Bruce Springsteen

Doo-wop champion Dion — yes, of “Runaround Sue” and “The Wanderer” fame — has spent the last half century being surprisingly prolific, from his 1959 debut with the Belmonts to his 1961 self-titled and all the way up to last year’s Blues With Friends, which memorably featured guest spots from Patti Scialfa and Bruce Springsteen (among others). Dion must’ve had a good time flipping through his rolodex (Jeff Beck, Paul Simon, and Van Morrison also showed up on Blues With Friends), because he’s prep...

Gold Dust – “Brookside Cemetery Blues”

You’ve heard of the heavy music to shoegaze pipeline. How about the heavy music and shoegaze to folk pipeline? Stephen Pierce, the Easthampton, MA-based musician who plays hardcore in Ampere and shoegaze in Kindling, has a new solo project called Gold Dust born out of his longtime love of ’60s and ’70s folk-rock. A self-titled album is arriving at the end of the week, and we’ve already heard lovely early tracks “Oh Well” and “Into Clouds.” Today, we’re getting one more, the gorgeously warm “Broo...

Scowl – “Fuck Around” (Feat. Drain’s Sammy Ciaramitaro)

Next month, Santa Cruz hardcore hellrippers Scowl will release their debut album How Flowers Grow, and we’ve already posted first single “Bloodhound.” Today, Scowl have shared another track, a 56-second punk attack called “Fuck Around.” On the track, Scowl frontwoman Kat Moss shares the mic with fellow Bay Area hardcore shit-starter Sammy Ciaramitaro, frontman of Drain and drummer of Gulch. Both of them screech hard, and I have a hard time telling who is who.

Dijon Announces Debut Album Absolutely With Live Performance Video

Dijon, once one-half of the buzzy blog duo Abhi + Dijon, has been forging ahead on his own these last couple years. In 2020, he put out his solo debut EP How Do You Feel About Getting Married? and now he’s announced his first full-length, Absolutely, which will be out on November 5. It was prefaced a few weeks ago with the single “Many Times,” which was very good.

Barrie – “Frankie”

Last month, Barrie returned with their first new single since 2019, “Dig,” which hinted at some new potential directions for the heretofore dreamy rock band. That song pulled from ’00s Brooklyn indies, and Barrie’s next single “Frankie” is propelled by synths and a driving hook. Despite that sound, the track was initially inspired by legendary songwriter Glen Campbell.

Bad History Month – “Death Takes A Holiday”

At the end of the month, Bad History Month and Nyxy Nyx are releasing a split album, Death Takes A Holiday, which was inspired by the respective songwriters’ mutual admiration of each other. They announced it a few weeks back with a song from each project, “Deep Bright Future” and “No Worries,” and today Bad History Month’s Sean Sprecher is sharing one of his own, which also happens to serve as the title track for the collection. “Death Takes A Holiday” is introspective and scraping, as Sprecher...

Francis Of Delirium – “All Love”

Francis Of Delirium moved in a shoegazier direction with last month’s single “Come Out And Play” and the project’s Jana Bahrich continues down that path on her new track “All Love,” which boasts some towering guitars and a sweeping melodic throughline that reflects some of the greats. Bahrich said that the song is “about dissociating from what your present moment really looks like,” adding: “Sonically, I wanted the song to sort of reflect that and feel like a big wave of sound that sweeps you up...

Everything About The Rock’s First Official Rap Verse Is Funny

I can still remember hearing that Wyclef Jean was going to have the Rock on his single. This was 21 years ago, when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was on his fourth or fifth reign as WWF World Champion. The Rock wasn’t a movie star yet — he’d make his debut as a terrible CGI effect in The Mummy Returns a year later — but he already seemed like he might be the coolest person on earth. The Rock had been a shit-talking, egocentric heel who’d become a crowd favorite simply because he was so good at egoce...

Today, Lindsey Jordan is sharing Valentine‘s second single, “Ben Franklin,” which boasts some crackling synths and a cheekily melodramatic hook: “Sucker for the pain huh, honey?/ But you said you’d die!/ You wanna leave a stain forever/ But you said you would’ve died fo...

Watch the only time Vincent Price performed the "Thriller" rap live

On Friday the 13th in February 1987, a full-moon night, Vincent Price was the guest on the Late Show starring Joan Rivers. This was the only time Price performed his iconic rap from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in a live setting.

Watch A Trailer For Peter Jackson’s Beatles Documentary Get Back

For a while now, Peter Jackson — perhaps best-known as the lord of the Lord Of The Rings extended film universe — has been working on a documentary about the recording sessions for the Beatles’ final album Let It Be. The Beatles: Get Back was originally supposed to be a movie, but a few months back we learned that it would instead be a six-hour Disney+ series, which will be doled out on the streaming service in two-hour installments over Thanksgiving weekend. Sounds like a great thing to bond ov...

7 Dinge, die viele glückliche Paare anscheinend anders machen

Für eine glückliche Beziehung gibt es kein genaues Rezept, das für alle funktioniert. Tatsächlich bestehen Beziehungen oft aus zwei Menschen mit verschiedenen Hintergründen, die Unterschiedliches erlebt haben und ihr Bestes geben, damit alles wie am Schnürchen läuft. Manchen Paaren scheint das aber besser zu gelingen als anderen – viel besser. „Viele der glücklichsten Pärchen haben eines gemeinsam: Sie erwarten keine Perfektion, sondern sind sich dessen bewusst, dass jeder Mensch seine Macken h...

Courtney Barnett is in the middle of a rollout for her latest album Things Take Time, Take Time — we just got a new single, “Write A List Of Things To Look Forward To,” a couple weeks ago — but she’s taking some time away from all that today to release a song that doesn’t appear on the album called “Smile Real Nice.” Instead, it’s the theme song for an upcoming animated TV series adaptation of Harriet The Spy, which debuts on Apple TV+ next month.
