Watch Kings Of Leon Play Fallon

Kings Of Leon just released their perfectly competent bar-rock comeback record Mechanical Bull. To celebrate, they stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday to perform the album track "Temple," which bears hallmarks of the old "Southern rock Strokes" sound but should slot in just fine between "Use Somebody" and "Sex On Fire" i… More »

A big TV night for Justin Timberlake last night.

Elvis Costello and the Roots first worked together on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon stage, and now they've teamed up to make the surprisingly seamless collaborative album Wise Up Ghost, on which Costello's burr meshes with the Roots' hard-swinging old-school funk in a not-remotely-forced sort of way.

The expectation-flummoxing psych-rock boffins in MGMT are about to release their self-titled third album, which, as our own Chris DeVille raves, is "not a complete shitshow."
