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 »

Watch The Black Keys’ Episode Of Austin City Limits

The Black Keys were the featured performers on the most recent episode of Austin City Limits. Their six song set was a mixture of Turn Blue tracks and old favorites.

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 »

Watch The Black Keys Cover Edwyn Collins’ “A Girl Like You”

Since embarking on their latest U.S. tour at the beginning of this month, the Black Keys have been covering Edwyn Collins' early '90s hit "A Girl Like You."

Jack White Calls Black Keys “Watered-Down” White Stripes, Later Apologizes

Earlier this month, the Black Keys discussed their Jack White feud and were pretty sympathetic to the guy -- but now White has talked more about the Keys in his new Rolling Stone cover story, and it's pretty ugly.

The Week In Pop: Ain’t Paramore Fun?

The question is not so much "How did Paramore end up on American Idol?" as "Why did it take them so long to get there?" As I explained at length last month, the Warped Tour scene that carried Hayley Williams and company to stardom was very much a pop star delivery system, and if… More »

The Black Keys Discuss Ugly Jack White Feud

Black Keys Take Turn Blue To Colbert, Patrick Carney Says Michael Jackson’s Xscape Is Fucking Bullshit

Patrick Carney, famously bespectacled drummer for the Black Keys, has made a habit lately of attacking easy pop targets. First, it was Justin Bieber. Now, it's Michael Jackson's retooled-throwaways collection Xscape, which, perhaps not coincidentally, shares a release date this week with the Black Keys' new album Turn Blue. Here's Carney More »
