By Tom Breihan / April 16, 2015 - 10:56 am
The PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley never has musical guests, but he occasionally brings musicians onto his show for serious, in-depth conversations. Tyler, The Creator just released his new album Cherry Bomb earlier this week, and he was a guest on Smiley's show last night. It's fascinating to see Tyler sitting there fidgeting i… More »

Ariel Pink – “Jell-O” Video

By Tom Breihan / April 16, 2015 - 10:17 am
Ariel Pink has already worked with the director Grant Singer to make three videos for songs from his 2014 album pom pom: "Put Your Number In My Phone," "Picture Me Gone," and "Dayzed Inn Daydreams." They've all been slow, creepy, and oddly beautiful pieces. That's not the case with Pink's new video for the frantic… More »

Watch Tame Impala Play The Epic “Let It Happen” On Conan

By Tom Breihan / April 16, 2015 - 8:57 am
Tame Impala's Kevin Parker still seems to be getting used to the idea that he's the man behind one of the world's most exciting bands. At Coachella this past weekend, he kept talking about how nervous he was, playing the festival's largest stage just before AC/DC. Fortunately, though, Parker's music doesn't lack for confidence, and… More »

Ty Dolla $ign – “Drop That Kitty” (Feat. Charli XCX & Tinashe) Video

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 15, 2015 - 4:02 pm
Ty Dolla $ign has released a video for his single "Drop That Kitty," featuring guest performers Tinashe and Charli XCX. Considering the fact that Charli XCX and Tinashe are two of the most promising young pop singers that Ty$ could've enlisted, the track falls a bit flat, relying way too much on a goofy euphemism… More »

Owen Pallett – “The Sky Behind The Flag” Video

By Caitlin White / April 15, 2015 - 3:09 pm
Owen Pallett's sophomore solo album under his own name, the gorgeous, meticulous In Conflict, was one of 2014's best. Today the Canadian musician and Arcade Fire collaborator released a video for one of the album's tracks, "The Sky Behind The Flag." Animated videos seem to be something of a thing this year, and this one… More »

Soak – “Blud” Video

By Caitlin White / April 15, 2015 - 1:46 pm
Sometimes it's hard to remember that Bridie Monds-Watson is only 18 years old. The teenage singer-songwriter is gearing up to release her debut album, and in the process traveled to America to perform for the first time. I saw her do "Blud" for her first technical stateside performance -- at the illustrious Beggars Group officesMore »

Watch Nirvana Play A Show For Two People In New Montage Of Heck Clip

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 15, 2015 - 11:38 am
When director Brett Morgen agreed to take on the Frances Bean-produced documentary Cobain: Montage Of Heck, he thought that it would take 18 months to make. Instead, the film took eight years, and it just about sucked the life out of Morgen in the process. Anyone willing to spend that much time digging through archive… More »

Taylor Swift’s Chinese Toyota Commercials Are Awkward Beyond Your “Wildest Dreams”

By Caitlin White / April 15, 2015 - 10:48 am
Taylor Swift took the best song off 1989 and turned it into a Toyota commercial, joining the long legacy of American celebrities appearing in foreign TV spots they'd never agree to stateside. The ad uses "Wildest Dreams" to promote Toyota's newest hybrid car in the Chinese market. There's two versions of the ad, but both… More »

GABI – “Falling” Video

By James Rettig / April 15, 2015 - 10:31 am
New York experimentalist GABI has shared a video for "Falling," a skittish track from her recently released debut album, Sympathy. It was shot in the barren industrial wasteland that was formerly the site of Staten Island's Fresh Kills Landfill, and which is now undergoing a decades-long rehabilitation into a park. The video captures the bleak… More »

Caribou – “Can’t Do Without You” Video

By Tom Breihan / April 15, 2015 - 10:15 am
Caribou's pulsing, romantic single "Can't Do Without You" might've been the best thing about last year's very good album Our Love. Its new video does interesting things with the fond, simple glimmer of the song. It tells the story about a little kid and a flying, piñata-looking fish creature, and you learn everything you need… More »

Beatking – “DBA (Remix)” (Feat. Danny Brown) Video

By Tom Breihan / April 15, 2015 - 9:44 am
I don't know how I missed this, but Beatking, the booming and gleefully nasty Houston rapper, released a new mixtape called Club God 4 back in February. Underground Cassette Tape Music, Beatking's 2014 collaborative tape with Gangsta Boo, was fucking great, so this should've been bigger news. The new tape features a track called "BDA… More »

Watch Nile Rodgers & Chic Get Disco-Euphoric On Kimmel

By Tom Breihan / April 15, 2015 - 9:20 am
Nile Rodgers' band Chic is a disco institution, and they were all over the nostalgia-tour circuit for years before their recent Daft Punk-spurred comeback. Last night, they were musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and you should not be surprised to learn that they brought it onstage. On the show proper, they played the euphoric… More »

Courtney Barnett – “Kim’s Caravan” Video

By Tom Breihan / April 15, 2015 - 8:42 am
There isn't a single less-than-great song on Courtney Barnett's ridiculously impressive new album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. Even in that context, though, "Kim's Caravan" stands out. The seven-minute song starts as a meditation on Australia's environmentally ruined coastline and turns into something vaguer and more existential. The new video,… More »

Watch A Longer, More Revealing Trailer For Brian Wilson Biopic Love & Mercy

By Chris DeVille / April 14, 2015 - 4:37 pm
We already saw one trailer for the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy, and it showed us that Paul Dano is a good choice for young Wilson while John Cusack is a questionable choice for old Wilson. Now a new trailer has arrived, giving us glances of Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti's roles in the… More »
