In one of the more amusing press mixups lately, the AP issued a correction last week stating that alleged murderer Robert Durst from HBO's true-crime documentary The Jinx was not, in fact, the frontman of Limp Bizkit. Apparently Fred Durst -- the actual frontman of Limp Bizkit -- has been hearing a lot about… More »

Cobain: Montage Of Heck: The Stereogum Review

By Chris DeVille / March 27, 2015
Cobain: Montage Of Heck is a movie about the frontman of Nirvana, but it isn't about Nirvana. The word Bleach is never uttered. Dave Grohl was not interviewed, and his entry into the band is not addressed; he's just there all of a sudden as the archival footage shifts into the Nevermind era. Even the… More »

Watch Blur Play “There Are Too Many Of Us” At Magic Whip Secret Show (Stereogum Premiere)

By Michael Nelson / March 27, 2015
Last Friday, Blur played a secret show for 300 people at the West London club Mode. Can you even imagine? I'm a lifelong Blur fan who has seen the band at clubs that would, in most circumstances, be considered pretty small, and I will be the first to say: That is a goddamn TINY… More »

That Kendrick Lamar Song From Colbert Hasn’t Been Recorded, Won’t Be Released

By Caitlin White / March 26, 2015
Way before the frenzy surrounding the release of To Pimp A Butterfly erupted, Kendrick Lamar caused another mini-stir when he performed a moving, untitled, jazzy, funky song as the last musical guest on The Colbert Report. One of his collaborators on the song (and extensively on Butterfly and elsewhere), Terrace Martin,… More »

Band To Watch: Algiers

By Caitlin White / March 26, 2015
Listening to Algiers is like cramming a Marxist treatise in one ear and a church organ in the other. Their music is a heady, vicious condemnation of bankrupt culture, ghosted gospel punk that snarls at the status quo. The text of their debut, self-titled album is a scathing intellectual clash of religion, race, economics and… More »
