By Tom Breihan / June 22, 2015 - 11:26 am

Neil Young has been in the news a lot lately, for taking “Rockin’ In The Free World” away from Donald Trump and gifting it to Bernie Sanders and for exchanging words with some of the world’s biggest, scariest corporations.

By Tom Breihan / June 22, 2015 - 10:57 am

Janelle Monáe’s Wondaland Arts Society is getting ready to release a new compilation EP called Wondaland Presents: The Eephus, and amazingly, the breakout early track isn’t Monáe’s catchy-as-hell “Yoga.” Instead, it’s the previously unknown dandy Jidenna’s deeply funky “Classic Man.” And now that song gets another boost, with current rap deity Kendrick Lamar jumping o… More »

By Tom Breihan / June 22, 2015 - 8:42 am

St. Vincent’s Annie Clark has lately been playing festival stages at the same time as EDM DJs draw much bigger crowds at nearby stages and as their thumps threaten to drown out her robo-shredding. That’s not easy! Even with a pretty amazing cyborg-styled live show, an art-pop star has a tough time competing with the… More »
