Azealia Banks Still Hates The “Ugly One” From Disclosure, Loves Ariel Pink Despite His Questionable Hygiene

Azealia Banks may have finally gotten her debut album out into the world, but that doesn't mean she's given up her infamous beefing ways. A new profile for The Guardian reads like a laundry list of the spats that Banks has gotten herself into over the past few years, and she tries to offer u… More »

Watch Eagulls Cover The Stone Roses For A.V. Club

Blistering Leeds post-punks Eagulls have already shown their facility with covers by taking on Killing Joke's "Requiem," so they were a good choice to participate in the A.V. Undercover series. Their song of choice was the Stone Roses classic "I Wanna Be Adored," and they gave it a fittingly faithful take that still managed to… More »

The 10 Dumbest Azealia Banks Beefs Of 2013

There's no better example of unrealized potential than Azealia Banks. It's been over two years since "212" dropped and we're still not sure when (or if) her oft-delayed debut album will ever be released. It's frustrating to see a young artist prioritize petty feuds over making music, and it's especially frustrating because I like Azealia'… 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 »

Flaming Lips’ Stone Roses Covers, Chocolate Skull, Frog Recorder Coming Soon

When I chatted with Wayne Coyne earlier this month there was so much to cover that we didn't even get around to the Flaming Lips' promised LP-length cover of the Stone Roses' self-titled debut -- after all, February 2013 is ancient history in Flaming Lips time. But it turns out that record hasn't been lost… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Friday’s 5 Best Things

Peel back the surface and look past the picturesque valley backdrop. Forget about the gorgeous, sun-kissed young folk wearing next to nothing (or, on occasion, nothing). Go ahead and ignore the ridiculous hippie art splattering the landscape. Once you get past everything that suggests Coachella is a legit wonderful place, reality sets in. You're i… More »

Coachella 2013 Friday: Blur, Modest Mouse, Grinderman, & More

“It’s the homeland!” one of the girls on the hotel shuttle yelped as we neared the festival. It really begged the question -- who is the most common Coachella archetype? The only data I have to cull from is my experience from last year’s first weekend, but the situation was vastly different. Then, I went… More »

Azealia Banks Shares New Single, Wishes Death Upon The Stone Roses

At this point, all the people Azealia Banks has Twitter-feuded with over the past few months should just band together, record a "We Are The World"-style song about the experience, and then just be done with it. Banks's latest target is an unexpected one: Reunited Madchester legends the Stone Roses, who, according to Banks, attempted… More »

Flaming Lips To Cover Stone Roses Debut Album?

I'm starting to think the Flaming Lips are feeling a bit upstaged by My Bloody Valentine: Just this morning we got an announcement that the band was releasing a compilation of love songs encased in an anatomically correct chocolate human heart for Valentine's Day, and now, we're seeing pretty convincing indicators that they're covering the… More »

Øyafestivalen 2012 In Photos

The always-eclectic Øya collected dozens of big name international acts and local bands to Oslo's Medieval Park and neighboring clubs over four days last week. Among them: Björk, A$AP Rocky, the Stone Roses, Chromatics, Baroness, Bon Iver, Odd Future, Florence + The Machine, and Frank Ocean, who ended his set after four songs due to… More »

The Stone Roses Reunion In Manchester: A Review

16 years after the nightmare that was their Reading 1996 performance, the Stone Roses resurrected the British indie dream this weekend with a trio of hometown shows at Manchester’s Heaton Park. The legendary band drew a line under some well-documented internal acrimony last year and after a trot around various European festivals, they finally brought… More »

The Top 20 Albums We’ve Been Waiting For Forever

In the June 2, 2012 issue of the NME, Kevin Shields said the long-awaited third album from My Bloody Valentine –- the first since 1991's classic Loveless –- is imminent. The UK mag quotes Shields as saying the album will be released "sooner rather than later," perhaps even this year. For more than two decade… More »

Watch Stone Roses Reunite In England

The reunited Stone Roses took the stage last night at Warrington Parr Hall, an unannounced free performance (their first in 16 years) that left notable observers speechless, rattling through an 11-song set of the band's classics. Fans were given wristbands if they brought a piece of Stone Roses memoribilia -- a CD, a ticket, a… More »

The Stone Roses Reunite

The great Manchester psych-rock band the Stone Roses, whose self-titled album is absolutely one that you should have on your iPod, announced a long-rumored, long-denied reunion at a press conference in their hometown today. The band, who broke up acrimoniously in 1996 and who have long denied any possibility of a reunion, will play two… More »

Download Ben Gibbard & Death Cab For Cutie’s Best Cover Songs

Last month Death Cab For Cutie returned to the spotlight with "You Are A Tourist," the great first single and video from their forthcoming Codes And Keys. A sunny addition to our spring playlist, it recalls brighter moments of mid-period Cure when it's not channeling "Float On." That's fitting given how Ben Gibbard's got five… More »

Mani Made Peter Hook Cry

Not really, but it's definitely the week for old(er) music dudes to be hurting folks' feelings. This situation with Mani and Peter Hook's a bit harsher than Lou Reed turning Susan Boyle into mush by telling her she couldn't cover "Perfect Day": I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but looks like Freebass,… More »

The Raveonettes Cover The Stone Roses

The Cass Bird & Molly Schiot-directed video for the Raveonettes' cover of the Stone Roses' 1989 debut opener "I Wanna Be Adored" starts with and returns to a pair of clunky green Doc Marten boots -- a personal detail of the younger half of the clip's odd couple, true, and this whole thing was put… More »

DāM-FunK Covers Human League For Dr. Martens’ 50th

Dr. Martens are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a digital ad campaign designed to remind you that rock stars wear Dr. Martens. This didn't work so well last time around. But this time they're doing something that directly involves musicians by having 10 (or 9, really) young bands do ten covers of nu-classics. Each cover… More »

Stone Roses Reunion Looking Likely

If seeing Mani with Primal Scream won't cut it, apparently John Squire finally got Ian Brown to "sign on the dotted line" for 21 dates in the UK and USA this summer. Always hearing these rumors, but let's hope this is the one. More »
