“Play No Games,” the Chris Brown/Ty Dolla $ign collab from Big Sean’s new album Dark Sky Paradise, might be the worst song on the album, but now it might also have the best video. The whole clip is an extended tribute to the sitcom Martin, which means that it will send you down a seriou… More »

Dan Auerbach’s one-off 7-inch side project the Arcs has transformed into a full-fledged Black Keys side project with a new full-length on the way.
