The Week In Pop: Empire, Nashville, & TV’s Music Drama Craze

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but Empire‘s empire might have been. Fox’s new drama series about a superstar rapper turned ailing hip-hop mogul debuted to staggering numbers two weeks ago, pulling 9.8 million same-day viewers. The stats have only gone up since, with Empire‘s next two episodes nabbing 10.3 million and 10.9 million, respectively. More »

The Week In Pop: Presenting The Mid-2014 Pop Superlatives

Seeing as we gave you a mid-year countdown of 2014’s best albums so far earlier this week, now seems like a good time to step back and assess the best and worst of what the pop sphere has given us this year. More »

The Week In Pop: Grammys Preview, Starring, Um, Sara Bareilles

Which album are you gunning for at the Grammys? If you’re a regular reader of this site, chances are you’re hoping Daft Punk gets lucky with an Album Of The Year win for Random Access Memories, or perhaps you’d prefer if Kendrick Lamar took home top honors for good kid, m.A.A.d. city. Both acts are… More »

The Week In Pop: Why So Serious, Jennifer Nettles?

My first exposure to Sugarland was the video for “Stuck Like Glue,” a 2010 single that injected a shot of unexpected quirk to the heavily codified country radio landscape. I hadn’t paid close attention to mainstream country since I was a kid, but somehow “Stuck Like Glue” made its way into my browser and captured… More »

The Week In Pop: Stereogum’s New Weekly Pop Column

Welcome to The Week In Pop, Stereogum’s new weekly pop column. I’ll be here every Thursday with a look at mainstream pop music via essays, track reviews, chart updates, and more. The phrase “Stereogum’s weekly pop column” probably raises some questions, so let’s get to them right away:… More »

The Flaming Lips, Ke$ha, & New Fumes – “Elizabeth My Dear” (The Stone Roses Cover)

Back in February we wrote about the Flaming Lips and friends’ plans for a track-for-track tribute to the Stone Roses’ self-titled debut album. Then last month, Wayne Coyne revealed the tracklist (which had four tracks each with Playing Hide And Seek With The Ghosts Of Dawn collaborators New Fumes and Stardeath And White Dwarfs) along… More »

The Flaming Lips & Ke$ha Album Has Been Mysteriously Called Off

Lately, the Flaming Lips have entered a strange career phase: They announce some outlandish, ridiculous plan, like releasing songs via gummy skull, and then they actually see that idea through to completion. But one of those projects, it seems, is just a bit out of reach for them. The band, who collaborated with trash-pop queenMore »

Did Ke$ha’s Stage Show Rip Off The Residents?

On her most recent tour, Ke$ha brought back-up dancers wearing oversized eyeball masks, tuxedos, and top hats. The costumes worn appear to be inspired by a long-running rock band, the Residents. But the Residents, and their fans, don’t see this as an homage — they feel that Ke$ha has totally ripped the band off. Ke$ha… More »

Watch The Flaming Lips Freak Out On Letterman

The Terror, the dark and anxious new album from the Flaming Lips, is already out overseas, and it arrives here in a couple of weeks. Last night, the band brought “Look… The Sun Is Rising” and their insane-looking new stage rig to the stage at the Late Show With David Letterman, bringing the nightmarish visio… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This is the week that the music universe finally woke up from its long holiday nap, and there were a lot of fun music videos out this week. There were so many, in fact, that I couldn’t find room for the video where Charli XCX, dressed like a post-candy raver, shoots machine guns, and that… More »

Stream Ke$ha Warrior

Die Young,” the lead single from Ke$ha’s forthcoming sophomore LP Warrior, has been in pretty heavy rotation in the Stereogum office. Right now, it’s topping my list of 2012’s best singles — although I’ve listened to it so many times that my brain doesn’t even register it as a song at this point, just a… More »

Some Strokes, Black Keys, Johnny Depp, Ke$ha & More Pay Tribute To Tom Petty @ El Rey, Los Angeles 11/14/12

“This is a lot of Alpha energy to wrangle,” Guster’s Ryan Miller said in testament to Alex Levy and the Cabin Down Below Band’s work last night. “This is a hard thing to organize.” And that’s probably true of most every tribute concert of this nature, as it has probably been true of the decade… More »

Ke$ha – “Die Young” Video

Ke$ha’s clip for “Die Young” features our hero as a cult leader, partaking in ceremonies with orgy implications and flashing scores of Illuminati icons. Basically, she’s back! Watch it below. More »

Ke$ha – “Die Young”

The career of Ke$ha has been a strange one so far, as emerging via the infectious (or unbelievably irritating, depending on who you talk to) single “TiK ToK,” a song many discarded as novelty. But, Ke$ha had a cabinet full of hooks on the resulting Animal and its follow-up EP Cannibal, establishing Ke$ha as one… More »

Watch Wayne Coyne & Ke$ha Join Ben Folds Five In Nashville

Fresh off their work with the cast of Fraggle Rock, the newly reunited Ben Folds Five last night performed with another unlikely set of collaborators: Wayne Coyne and Ke$ha. The Five were joined at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium by Coyne and Ke$ha for a cover of the Conway Twitty/Loretta Lynn duet “You’re the Reason Our Kid… More »

The Flaming Lips & Ke$ha – “2012… You Must Be Upgraded”

Speaking of the Flaming Lips and Record Store Day, one of today’s most anticipated releases was the collaborative LP The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends. You’ve heard cuts featuring Bon Iver, New Fumes, Prefuse 73, and others. Now you can lay your ears on the Doctor Who-sampling, apocalyptic Heady Fwends Ke$ha collab below. More »

Wayne Coyne Recording With Ke$ha Again

The Flaming Lips roped a whole ton of collaborators into their forthcoming Record Store Day album The Flaming Lips And Heavy Fwends, and none of those collaborators was more unlikely than the ultra-crass top-40 pop star Ke$ha, who’s also letting the band use some of her blood in the actual vinyl copies of the album.

Preview Amnesty’s Mammoth 75-Song Bob Dylan Tribute Chimes Of Freedom

Last month, we reported on the existence of Chimes Of Freedom, Amnesty International’s massive and mind-boggling new Bob Dylan tribute compilation. The album includes four CDs and 75 covers, and its list of contributors is wide enough to include the Kronos Quartet, Pete Seeger, and Miley Cyrus. Versatility!
