Q&A: Noel Gallagher On Kanye, Beck, Beyoncé, Moz, Jack White, Black Keys, & More

Back when I was first becoming an obsessive music fan, Oasis were big for me. I loved everything: the classic albums, of course, but also the mid-period stuff most people dismiss. As I got older, those last two very underrated albums were special to me, too. I sought out all sorts of Oasis minutiae, from… More »

Beck Albums From Worst To Best

As you might've heard, Beck won a Grammy for Album Of The Year about a week and a half ago, for his early 2014 release Morning Phase. I don't know if your Twitter feed looked anything like mine, but let's say people were less than supportive of this decision -- because, of course, Beck beat… More »

Win Butler Mashes Up Kanye & Beck On “Jesus Walks, Loser”

Ah, the never-ending string of Grammys-related-content has not come to an end yet, and since whenever Kanye West does anything it becomes a cultural focal point, the latest dispatch involves him again, too. Yes, Kanye pretended to go onstage when Beck won, and later commented that -- once again -- Beyoncé deserved to… More »

Hear The Inevitable Beck And Beyoncé Mashup “Single Loser”

Apparently, this had to happen. After Beck beat Beyoncé for an Album Of The Year Grammy on Sunday night, and after Kanye West jumped to Beyoncé's defense, Beck and Beyoncé have been held up as opposite poles of pop-music stardom, even though they probably have zero feelings about each other. And so now some… More »

Garbage’s Shirley Manson Calls Kanye West A “Twat” In Open Letter

At the Grammys on Sunday night, Kanye made a joke out of threatening to snatch Beck's mic when he won the Album Of The Year trophy for Morning Phase. After the show, Kanye went on the E! Network and said that he really wasn't joking: "Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should’ve… More »

Grammys 2015: Performances From Worst To Best

Hey, it's over! We made it through! Sam Smith won everything! Iggy Azalea didn't win anything! Beck busted through the wall like the Kool-Aid Man! Kanye, for a glorious split second, threatened to turn this into an interesting show! And amid all the drama, there were so, so many performances. Almost everyone brought an orchestra,… More »

Morning-After Phase: Thoughts On The 2015 Grammys

The most uneventful Grammys in recent memory climaxed with an utterly anticlimactic Album Of The Year winner. Rarely has such a shocking upset felt so bereft of drama, and it could not have been more fitting. The triumph of Beck's Morning Phase wasn't even a head-scratcher of the Steely-Dan-in-2001 or Herbie-Hancock-in-2008 variety so much a… More »

Kanye Wasn’t Kidding, Says Beck “Should’ve Given His Award To Beyoncé”

The best moment at last night's Grammys was an easy thing to miss; it was over in about a split-second. Beck had won the Album Of The Year trophy for Morning Phase, shockingly beating Beyoncé, among others. At least within my Twitter feed, the prevailing sentiment was something like whaaaaat? We were… More »

Beck Will Perform With Chris Martin At The Grammys

The 57th annual Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, and we already know that host LL Cool Jay (cue a collective groan) will not be the show's main attraction, nor will it be the winning results. Most of us watch the Grammys for the insanely over-produced performances and incredulous conversation fodder. We already know… More »

Beck’s Boisterous Morning Phase Follow-Up Could Be Coming “Before The Summer”

While Beck was doing interviews for Morning Phase, he mentioned a few times that he hoped to have a second album out before the end of 2014. While that didn't happen, it looks like it may out "before the summer," if an artist bio on Norway's Øyafestivalen site is to be believed. As More »

Last month, Beck and Sia unveiled their fizzy pop collaboration "MoonQuake Lake," which turns out to be the theme song of a Twilight parody that will appear in the new remake of Annie. Now a trailer for the very fake film MoonQuake Lake has been released, starring Mila Kunis as some sort of alie… More »

Bestselling Vinyl Of 2014 Includes Jack White, Beck, Lana Del Rey

The comeback is real: vinyl now makes up about 3.5% of album sales -- still not a huge number in the scheme of things, but significantly larger than the 0.2% it was pulling in ten years ago. We know that Amazon and Urban Outfitters are going one-two as the biggest vinyl distributors, so… More »

2015 Grammys Album Of The Year Nominees Include Beyoncé, Beck, Ed Sheeran

The Grammys decided to stretch out the announcement of this year's nominees for as long as possible by tweeting them periodically throughout the day and saving the announcement of the Album Of The Year nominations for a television holiday special. After an hour of performances from Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, Ariana Grande (with a surprise… More »

Wayne Coyne Reviews 2014: The Flaming Lips Leader On U2, Taylor Swift, Iggy Azalea, And What’s Next With Miley Cyrus

Wayne Coyne has never been shy about his opinions. Known in recent years for giving freewheeling, often hilarious interviews, he's also made some comments that have understandably pissed people off -- particularly this past spring, when there were a whole bunch of headlines about the Flaming Lips' falling out with drummer Kliph Scurlock and… More »
