Harriet The Spy Trailer: Beanie Feldstein And Jane Lynch Get Animated In Apple TV+ Show

For precocious girls looking to buck the status quo everywhere, Harriet M. Welsch is a literary icon. Between the original 1964 novel from Louise Fitzhugh to the 1996 Nickelodeon film of the same name starring Michelle Trachtenberg and Rosie O'Donnell, for generations "Harriet the Spy" has been inspiring kids to get into good trouble, follow their passions, question the world around them, and learn that sometimes it's okay to ask for help. Today, Apple TV+ released the trailer for its new animat...

Courtney Barnett – “Smile Real Nice”

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. (Beanie Feldstein voices the titular child-spy.)...

Stream The New Velvet Underground And Nico Tribute Feat. Michael Stipe, St. Vincent, Thurston Moore, & More

Before legendary Saturday Night Live music producer Hal Willner passed away last year, he was working on at least two different all-star tribute albums. The first, AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan And T. Rex, was released last year. And today, we’re getting a full-length tribute album to the Velvet Underground’s 1967 classic The Velvet Underground & Nico that Willner organized. It’s called, fittingly, I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to the Velvet Underground & Nico.

Courtney Barnett Acknowledges Her New Video’s “Uncanny” But Coincidental Similarity To Fellow Aussie Band’s

Courtney Barnett has been in the midst of rolling out her new album Things Take Time, Take Time. Recently, that meant a new video for “Before You Gotta Go.” Apparently, people noticed some significant similarities to an older video, for the Melbourne band Quivers’ 2019 song “You’re Not Always On My Mind.” Today, Barnett tweeted an acknowledgment of the overlaps.

Sharon Van Etten – “Femme Fatale” (The Velvet Underground Cover)

Next week, the Hal Willner-organized album I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to the Velvet Underground & Nico is being released. On it, a whole lot of artists cover every song on the Velvet Underground’s 1967 debut. We’ve heard contributions from Iggy Pop and Matt Sweeney, Kurt Vile, Matt Berninger, and Courtney Barnett, and now — fresh off linking up with Angel Olsen to do their recent collab live at Pitchfork Music Fest — Sharon Van Etten is here with her rendition of “Femme Fatale.” Check it out...

Iggy Pop & Matt Sweeney – “European Son” (The Velvet Underground Cover)

On the forthcoming tribute album I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to the Velvet Underground & Nico, a whole lot of great artists come together to cover every song on the Velvet Underground’s classic 1967 debut. The late Hal Willner started work on the compilation before he died of COVID-19 last year, and the album features some truly intriguing combinations of songs and musicians. We’ve already heard Kurt Vile doing “Run Run Run,” Matt Berninger doing “I’m Waiting For The Man,” and Courtney Barnet...

Courtney Barnett – “I’ll Be Your Mirror” (The Velvet Underground Cover)

Courtney Barnett is in the middle of rolling out her own new album Things Take Time, Take Time — perhaps you’ve heard its great singles “Rae Street” and “Before You Gotta Go” — but her new song today is not on that album. Instead, Barnett is back with her contribution to the all-star The Velvet Underground & Nico tribute album I’ll Be Your Mirror, from which we’ve already heard Kurt Vile and Matt Berninger‘s tracks.

Watch Courtney Barnett Perform “Rae Street” On Fallon

Melbourne indie rock hero Courtney Barnett is returning in November with Things Take Time, Take Time, her first new album in over three years. She’s already shared a couple of songs from it, including “Before You Gotta Go” and lead single/opening track “Rae Street,” a jangly folk ballad that we named the best song of the week when it came out last month. Last night, she went and played it on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and it sounded just as good live. Watch her performance below. ...

Courtney Barnett – “Before You Gotta Go”

Back in July, Courtney Barnett began a four-month rollout for Things Take Time, Take Time — her first album in more than three years — with the release of its lead single and opening track, “Rae Street.” We were big fans. Today she’s back with another new song, which is also great.

10 of the best Christmas songs (that aren’t by Mariah Carey)

The classics are back in the charts even earlier than usual – alongside the perennial row about the Pogues. So why not discover these lesser-known festive bangers? Judging by the number of trees and lights going up already, the UK is rounding off the worst year ever by turning Christmas 2020 into a six-week celebration of successful vaccine trials. Sure enough, sales and streams of festive songs are up by 50% compared with the same week last year, with Mariah Carey leading the charge and likely ...

Kiwi Jr. – “Cooler Returns”

Kiwi Jr. are a jangly, bemused, revved-up indie rock band from Toronto. At the beginning of the year, they released their debut album Football Money, which got a lot of people reaching for Pavement comparisons. That influence is definitely there, but Kiwi Jr. sound more uptight than Pavement, and there’s more sweetness in their silliness. to me, they sound more like what might happen if Parquet Courts tried really hard to sound like Courtney Barnett. This is, in my estimation, a good thing. Ja...

Anna Calvi Re-writes Her Own History on 'Hunted'

From here on in, it's diminishing returns, unfortunately. The guest vocalists come and go, but their performances seem almost grafted on to the recordings for no real reason. Aside from Holter's ethereal contribution to the opening track, no one else has brought their "A" game. Charlotte Gainsbourg's contribution to "Eden" does very little to enhance the song, the same of which could be said for Joe Talbot's vocal on "Wish". Courtney Barnett fares better on "Don't Beat the Girl out of My Boy",...

Stream: Cuffed Up, ‘French Exit’

From the first minute of their debut single “Mother/Father,” you knew L.A. quartet Cuffed Up knew their post-punk. Their new single “French Exit” is another story entirely, a stream-turned-whirlpool-of-consciousness, with Sapphire Jewell speak-singing over an intoxicating wash of guitar and cymbals. To review: Cuffed Up formed after a chance meeting between Jewell and Ralph Torrefranca, during which they bonded over their love for the U.K. punk scene. Vic Ordonez and Joe Liptock later came on bo...
