David Bowie Documentary In The Works From Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck Director

A new David Bowie documentary is in the works. Per Variety, director Brett Morgen — who made the Kirt Cobain: Montage Of Heck doc back in 2015 — is in the final stages of a similarly impressionistic film about Bowie. Morgen has apparently been at work on the film for four years. A source told Variety that the movie is “neither documentary nor biography, but an immersive cinematic experience built, in part, upon thousands of hours of never before seen material.” That footage seems to include at l...

Delay – “Switter Beat”

Twin brothers Austin and Ryan Eilbeck and their pal Jesse Wither (later of Stereogum favorites All Dogs) formed the pop-punk-ish indie rock band Delay way back in 1997 as teenagers in the Cleveland suburb of Berea. By 2003 they’d relocated to Columbus, where they set about becoming pillars of the local and national DIY scene, endlessly crisscrossing the country and playing and promoting countless shows at local bars and houses. Although they’ve never officially broken up, their most recent album...

Rico Nasty – “Money” (Feat. Flo Milli)

Rico Nasty has been having a hard time in the road for the past few weeks. She’s been opening Playboi Carti’s King Vamp tour, and Carti’s fans, at least at some stops, have been booing and throwing bottles. Rico has been getting pissed at those fans, often in entertaining ways. Today, Rico has released a new banger, and that might be an even better way of flexing on her naysayers.

Quinton Brock – “Touch”

Brooklyn-based Quinton Brock caught our attention with last fall’s “To The Moon,” a song that sounded like what Miguel might come up with if tasked with writing a 2000s-era indie rock hit. It ruled. Today he’s back with his first single in more than a year following what I can confirm was a highly engaging debut festival set at Shaky Knees in Atlanta last month.

A Composer Breaks Down The Music Theory Behind Silk Sonic’s “Blast Off”

Anyone who has heard the music of Silk Sonic, the R&B superduo comprising Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, will immediately recognize that it’s heavily steeped in early-’70s soul aesthetics. From just the first two singles, “Leave The Door Open” and “Skate,” there’s no doubt that the Silk Sonic project is part homage, part parody — and clearly self-aware. But if you can get beyond the devilishly smooth retro façade and tongue-in-cheek lyrics, you’ll find that the tunes contain truly challenging an...

Bright Flight Turns 20

David Cloud Berman could spend a lifetime on a lyric. Eternally his own worst critic, he had a reputation for blowing past deadlines, sabotaging studio sessions, and endlessly critiquing his catalog. “I’ve seen him get hung up on a single line for literally months,” Drag City president Dan Koretzky recalled after his passing in 2019. There are hours of recordings that sound like the stuff of legends (most intriguing to me is a failed collaboration between Berman, Dan Bejar, and Stephen Malkmus),...

Hazel English – “Nine Stories”

Early last year Artist To Watch alum Hazel English finally got around to releasing her debut album, Wake Up!, and today she’s back with her first new song since then, “Nine Stories.” It’s a gleaming and smooth bit of guitar-pop, featuring a gliding chorus and English’s muffled delivery. It’s named after the J.D. Salinger short story collection, and its opening lines talk about it: “You lent me Nine Stories/ While you starred in mine/ We talked about J.D./ In your car.” The track was produced by ...

Bach on a Möbius Strip: Marcus du Sautoy Visualizes How Bach Used Math to Compose His Music

“A mathematician’s favorite composer? Top of the list probably comes Bach.” Thus speaks a reliable source on the matter: Oxford mathematician Marcus du Sautoy in the Numberphile video above. “Bach uses a lot of mathematical tricks as a way of generating music, so his music is highly complex,” but at its heart is “the use of mathematics as a kind of shortcut to generate extraordinarily complex music.” As a first example du Sautoy takes up the “Musical Offering,” and in particular its “cra...

Eddie Vedder – “The Haves”

These days, Pearl Jam leader Eddie Vedder is keeping himself plenty busy. A couple of months ago, Vedder, with and without Pearl Jam, headlined all three days of his own Ohana Festival. Vedder also contributed a bunch of songs to the soundtrack of Sean Penn’s film Flag Day, including an R.E.M. cover. (The same soundtrack also featured the on-record debut of Vedder’s daughter Olivia.) Vedder has done some big collaborations, too — with Elton John on a song from John’s The Lockdown Sessions and wi...

Jason Sudeikis Is Foo Fighters’ Synchronized Swimming Coach In The “Love Dies Young” Video

Foo Fighters released their Medicine At Midnight album back in February, and today they’re sharing a new video for “Love Dies Young” featuring Jason Sudeikis from Ted Lasso, the Foo Fighters of TV shows. The clip, directed by Dave Grohl, toys with that Ted Lasso character by casting Sudeikis as a mustachioed synchronized swimming coach seemingly designed to evoke former US women’s gymnastics coach Béla Károlyi. Also, the various Foo Fighters’ faces have been pasted onto the bodies of the swimmer...

Jazz star Charles Lloyd: ‘Miles Davis wanted all the girls and money’

He played gigs to a young Elvis, got high with the Grateful Dead and made an enemy in Miles Davis. And, at 83, the saxophonist who collided jazz and rock still has his spirit of adventure“We played the Royal Albert Hall in 1964,” says Charles Lloyd, recollecting his first ever UK performance. “Packed it to the rafters.” He was 26, playing tenor saxophone in Cannonball Adderley’s majestic band and getting his first taste of a world beyond US jazz and blues clubs. “I’m looking forward to returning...

Loop Announce First New Album In 32 Years, Share New Single “Halo”

Robert Hanson formed the psych-rock band Loop in mid-’80s London. Over the next few years, the band went through a bunch of different iterations, and they released three cult-beloved albums before breaking up in 1991. In 2013, Loop reunited to play an All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, and the band released an EP called Array 1 in 2015. Last year, Hanson said that Loop were going into the studio to record their first new album since 1990’s A Gilded Eternity. Today, we learn that the album is comi...

The Lineup For Austin’s Oblivion Access Festival Looks So Sick

Two years ago, the organizers of the metal-centric Austin Terror Festival announced a whole new festival that would come to the capitol city of Texas in the spring of 2020. That new festival was called Oblivion Access, and it was set to feature artists from across the spectrum of intense, extreme underground music. This would be the rare opportunity to see Carcass, Kool Keith, Youth Of Today, and Zola Jesus at the same festival. We all know what happened next, and Oblivion Access never got to ha...
