With Silk Sonic, Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak Set Their Time Machine To ’70s Funk & Soul

Bruno Mars is a pastiche artist. That’s just who he is. He is very good at it, too — a born entertainer, a gifted songwriter, a master of period detail rivaling any Hollywood professional. Over the past decade, Mars has carved out a space as mainstream pop’s official retro ambassador. You are not ever going to find him pushing music forward, but he can be counted on to show up every couple years with expert facsimiles of bygone genres, overtly fun and catchy music bound to get wedding dance floo...

Listening to Grechka

We are going to talk about a wonderful Russian music artist on the rise that goes under the name Гречка (Grechka).

Gesichtsschmuck ohne Schmerzen: Unechte Nasen-Piercings sind im Kommen

Von allen Beauty-Trends, die es so gibt, sind Piercings einer, der schon unseren Vorfahren gefallen haben könnte und dessen Ursprünge bis 1500 v. Chr. zurückreichen. Im Gegensatz zu Schuhen, Handtaschen und anderen Trends, die sich leicht an- und ausziehen lassen, waren Piercings schon immer eine Modeerscheinung mit einem gewissen Risiko. Wer von uns hat nicht schon einmal eine furchtbare Anekdote zum Thema aus der Jugendzeit gehört? Eine unserer Redakteur:innen kann ein Lied davon sing...

„Like A Virgin“: Wie der Jungfrauen-Mythos Britney Spears & Co. zerstörte

Es war das erste Mal seit 13 Jahren, dass Britney Spears in der Öffentlichkeit über ihre langwährende Vormundschaft sprach. Im Laufe des 24-minütigen Statements erzählte der Popstar klar und leidenschaftlich davon, wie sie seit über einem Jahrzehnt unter diesem Vertrag litt – wie sie von ihrem Vormund, ihrem Vater Jamie Spears, dazu gezwungen worden sei, sieben Tage pro Woche durchzuarbeiten, gegen ihren Willen Lithium einzunehmen und sogar eine Spirale zu tragen, obwohl sie sich weitere Kinder ...

Dead Best – “Life, Love, And Liberty”

Dead Best is a new project from Adam Goren (of Adam And His Package) and Brian Sokel, who have been friends and tourmates for years but never made music together until the pandemic. They are neighbors in Philadelphia and started to work on music together to see what happened. What happened is a whole album, Dead Best, which will be out via Don Giovanni on December 10. Lead single “Life, Love, And Liberty” is fast but frothy, breaking into a sing-songy breakdown after a minute of build-up. Check ...

Where’s Taylor Swift’s scarf – is it in Jake Gyllenhaal’s drawer?

As Swift rereleases 2012’s Red, her fans want to know – but you can buy a red scarf on the singer’s websiteTaylor Swift runs a close second to Ezra Pound for having devotees scour every word of their hero’s writing in search for a deeper meaning.

The Charlatans: how we made The Only One I Know – ‘I’m still not sure which bit’s the chorus’

‘I came up with it on the way to the garage to get fags. I had to pelt back to my mum and dad’s to get my Dictaphone before I forgot it’I was in a band called the Electric Crayons and we managed to get a gig supporting the Charlatans. They had a different singer, Baz Ketley, then. I ended up jumping on stage and singing one of their songs. Shortly after that, I got a call from the band. They didn’t ask me to audition. It was more a case of: “Would you like to come down to Wednesbury in the Midla...

Taylor Swift Shares Blake Lively-Directed Video For Chris Stapleton Duet “I Bet You Think About Me” Starring Miles Teller (With An Aaron Dessner Cameo)

The closer and headliner of sorts on Taylor Swift’s new re-recorded Red is the long-rumored 10-minute version of “All Too Well,” which got its own short film on Friday and was performed on SNL the next day. But it’s not the only Red (Taylor’s Version) track getting elaborate promo treatment. “I Bet You Think About Me,” a well-done duet with Chris Stapleton included among the project’s bonus tracks, got a music video of its own this morning.

Rico Nasty Is Extremely Pissed Off At Playboi Carti’s Fans

On paper, a bill with both Playboi Carti and Rico Nasty makes perfect sense. Both Carti and Rico are raw, energetic rappers who play around with punk rock signifiers and who have built reputations for intense, out-of-control live shows. But Rico Nasty has been opening for Playboi Carti on Carti’s King Vamp tour, and things have not been going well. During some of these shows, Carti’s fans have been dicks to Rico, and she hasn’t been shy about reacting.

Take Care Turns 10

“Over My Dead Body” Every piano chord is a shimmering pool, glassy on the surface, deep enough to get lost in. A sparse beat kicks up in the background, skipping and thudding as if we’re hearing it through the wall. Then comes Chantal Kreviazuk’s voice, sighing yet casually impassioned, painting streaks of neon on the music as she professes her irrational devotion. Crafted by Kreviazuk and a young sonic visionary named Noah “40” Shebib, it’s a softer, prettier intro than you’d expect from a bloc...

Putting The Fun Back Into Franz (Schubert)

Camp Turns 10

Donald Glover closes his first album as Childish Gambino by telling an embarrassing story about oversharing his feelings to a crush as a 13-year-old. He then explains the lesson: “Make it all for everybody” — reveal everything about yourself, even if that leads to shallow relationships. The preceding 55 minutes of sex boasts and punchline verses, written from the perspective of a 27-year-old rising Hollywood star, aren’t just rap shit. They’re also a defense mechanism.

Neuer Job gefällig? So klappt’s mit dem Karrierewechsel

In den USA kam es dieses Jahr zu einer enormen Kündigungswelle. 2,9 Prozent aller Arbeitskräfte kündigte dort im August, während die Zahl der offenen Stellen im Vereinigten Königreich zur gleichen Zeit einen neuen Rekord erreichte und damit zum ersten Mal die Marke von 1 Million überschritt.

9-Year-Old Dies From Astroworld Injuries, Bringing Death Toll To 10

The story of the deadly crowd crush at Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival, already impossibly tragic, is now even more heartbreaking. On November 5, while Scott was performing, the Astroworld festival descended into chaos, and a crowd surge injured hundreds of festivalgoers. In the immediate aftermath of the festival, eight people had died, and many more had been hospitalized. Last week, 22-year-old Bharti Shahani also died, bringing the Astroworld death toll to nine.

Watch Adele Debut “I Drink Wine” In New Concert Special

On Friday, Adele will release her long-awaited new album 30, and she’s giving the new LP a real blockbuster rollout. Thus far, we’ve only heard the proper studio version of first single “Easy On Me,” which currently sits at #1 on the Hot 100. “Hold On,” another song, recently soundtracked an Amazon holiday ad. But when the 30 tracklist came out, the song title that drew the most attention was one called “I Drink Wine.” Last night, Adele sang that song on TV.

Wie ich nach einem Jahr aufhörte, meinen Mann zu betrügen

Der Tag, an dem Ava* entschied, damit aufzuhören, ihren Mann zu betrügen, fing an wie jeder andere auch. Sie stand morgens auf, machte sich einen Kaffee, schminkte sich, zog sich an. Sie brachte ihr Kleinkind zur Tagespflege und fuhr dann selbst zur Arbeit. Als sie gerade aus ihrem Auto stieg, hörte sie das Ping! einer E-Mail – eine Nachricht ihrer Affäre. Sie schrieben sich oft, und während diese Nachrichten anfangs noch dafür gesorgt hatten, dass sich Ava begehrt fühlte, wurde ihr die Af...

Watch All of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons Performed on Original Baroque Instruments

Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons reigns as one of the world’s most recognizable early 18th-century pieces, thanks to its frequent appearances in films and television commercials. Upon its debut in 1725, The Four Seasons stunned listeners by telling a story without the help of a human voice. Vivaldi drew on four existing sonnets (possibly of his own provenance), using strings to paint a narrative filled with spring thunderstorms, summer’s swelter, autumnal hunts and harvests, and the ic...
