The 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011

Back in the day, when two artists didn’t like each other, they’d deal with it in relatively low-profile ways: A snippy backstage comment, or a pointed interview comment. Maybe they’d toss in a lyrical jab, the way Lynyrd Skynyrd did toward Neil Young on “Sweet Home Alabama,” but that would be just about it. That’… More »

Tyler, The Creator Arrested For Vandalism

When you go to an Odd Future show as an audience member, you’ve got to know that there’s a reasonable chance you’ll be kicked in the head. The same thing should not, however, extend to the professional adults working at those shows. Last night, Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator was arrested “on suspicion of… More »

The 10 Best Late Night TV Performances Of 2011

Our annual list of late night television’s best performances has quickly become an annual exercise in big-upping Jimmy Fallon’s music talent booker. Way to go, person responsible for pointing those Studio 6B HD-cameras at our tag cloud: Bang the Fallon gong (btw, there should be a Fallon gong), a full 70% of this list come… More »

Game – “Martians Vs. Goblins” Video (Feat. Tyler, The Creator)

When stubbornly-still-existing California namedrop-rapper Game snagged a Tyler, The Creator guest verse for his track “Martians Vs. Goblins,” it was fun to hear a longtime industry figure going embarrassingly all-out in attempting to replicate the Odd Future shock-rap style. See, Game is legitimately insane; he’s the type of guy who constantly gets ugly face tattoo… More »

The Gummy Awards: Your Top 10 Music Videos Of 2011

The Gummy Awards rollout continues today with Your Top 10 Music Videos Of 2011, and while there’s not a lot of surprises here, it’s a strong list capped by a beyond-worthy champion. There’s a little overlap with yesterday’s Top 10 Tracks list, but not a lot, and if you have any reason to complain tha… More »

Pusha T – “Oooh” (Feat. Hodgy Beats, Liva Don & Tyler, The Creator)

A few years ago, Clipse launched a clothing line called Play Cloths, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen any non-Clipse human beings wearing their clothes. Nonetheless, Clipse rapper and recent Kanye beneficiary Pusha T recently cranked out a mixtape to go along with the Play Cloths holiday collection. It’s creatively titled Play Cloths HolidayMore »

Tyler, The Creator Guests On The Regular Show

Tyler, The Creator has always been a figurative cartoon character, and yesterday he became a literal one. Both Tyler and Community actor/Childish Gambino rapper Donald Glover guested on an episode of the Cartoon Network program The Regular Show, playing — and this is a serious stretch — skateboarding rap kids. Tyler manages not to cuss,… More »

Tyler, The Creator – “Bitch Suck Dick” Video (Feat. Jasper Dolphin & Taco)

Within the Odd Future crew, the rappers Jasper Dolphin and Taco play a pretty weird role: They’re the two guys who are absolutely terrible at rapping, and they know it. So every time they jump on a track, they’re essentially there to make fun of themselves, the song, and rap in general. Their outlandishly inept… More »

10 Possible Monday Night Football Replacements For Hank Williams, Jr.

As you may have heard, country music lifer Hank Williams, Jr. has parted ways with Monday Night Football, the TV show he spent 20 years singing the intro for, just because he made a totally calm and reasonable parallel between Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler. (He also compared John Boehner to Netanyahu? Whatever.) If you… More »

Watch Kanye & Jay-Z’s VMA Performance

Mercifully, Kanye and Jay-Z took the MTV VMA stage about 20 minutes into the broadcast to perform “Otis.” Daddy-to-be Hov and ‘Ye walked down a long runway replete with American imagery, bypassing a Soy Bomber, and then the existential dread began to sink in as we realized we’re stuck with the Video Music Awards for… More »

MTV VMA Nominations 2011

MTV has released the nominations list for this year’s VMA’s, and those three faces — Adele, Katy Perry, Kanye, are amongst the leaders across the board. Also notable: “Yonkers” up for Best New Video along with a Best New Artist nod for Tyler, The Creator. Wherever you stand on OFWGKTA and Goblin, I think we… More »

How Independent Rockers Celebrated #IndependenceDay

How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be see… More »

The 8 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we’ve got new videos from Hooray For Earth, Broken Social Scene, Tyler, The Creator, and White Lies. I included the Calling All Cars and Border Surrender videos because they both featured long slow-motion foot chases but the latter video also has a surprise at the end of its long, single shot. You’ll also… More »

Tyler, The Creator Responds To Tegan & Sara

While Earl aka Thebe weathers the Odd Future hypestorm from a safe, voluntary distance, Tyler, The Creator sits in its epicenter. He’s a clever boy just out of his teens whose anti-everything rhetorical baseline is kindling to the adolescent id, who has released a knotty LP Goblin that is kindling to sharp think piece writersMore »

Riot At Odd Future’s Boston In-Store

A cop was hospitalized after a riot at Boston’s Newbury Comics connected to rap artist Tyler, The Creator, and if you are reporting this news for local TV make sure to nod your head incredulously when saying the artist’s name, as if you have never heard such a silly name. The less sensationalistic rendition of… More »

Wild Beasts Smother Under The Influence

Hopefully by now you’ve heard Smother, the third album from Wild Beasts. As with all their records, it feels like it comes out of nowhere. And as always, I have trouble finding reference points to give people when recommending them (Antony? Talking Heads?). That’s why I asked the band to talk about some of the… More »

Tyler, The Creator – Goblin Comment Party

We got “Yonkers,” “Analog,” and “Tron Cat,” before Tyler, The Creator’s XL debut Goblin leaked last week. It’ll be out properly tomorrow. Now that you’ve had the weekend to listen, (and Jon Caramanica’s entertaining profile in the New York Times and The Guardian’s cover story to read), it’s time to talk about it. On first… More »
