Louis C.K. and Rihanna are the featured guests on this weekend’s season finale of Saturday Night Live, and the show has just shared their cute promo ad, shot alongside cast member Leslie Jones.

Funny Or Die rounded up a few notable people for a parody of NCIS located in the rave hotspot of Ibiza. Ryan Hemsworth is a “young Spanish boy trying to make it in the streets,” Moby is in a wig, and Nile Rodgers is packing heat while trying to get into a club. There’s also… More »

Heartless Bastards – “Gates of Dawn” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / May 14, 2015 - 3:30 pm

This summer Austin’s Heartless Bastards are releasing Restless Ones, their fifth album of wide-open rock. The album was produced by John Congleton and showcases frontwoman Erika Wennerstrom’s gritty, bluesy voice more than ever. Today we’re premiering the video for “Gates Of Dawn,” which gives me DIY/home-video vibes and follows a teenager who is taunting, fleeing… More »

Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity” Video Is Now A Video Game

By Tom Breihan / May 14, 2015 - 2:59 pm

If you were a kid when Jamiroquai dropped their classic Jonathan Glazer-directed “Virtual Insanity” video, you probably found yourself asking one question, over and over: How does that couch not totally just kill him? Just crush him up against the wall and end him? It seems like it’s about to happen again and again, but… More »

Hopsin Posts Phone Number On Facebook, Racks Up $6K Bill

By Tom Breihan / May 14, 2015 - 2:38 pm

The L.A. rapper Hopsin is mostly known — to me, anyway — for two things: Wearing goofy-colored contact lenses and having a weirdly huge internet fan base. So when Hopsin posted his phone number on his Facebook page earlier this week, a pretty good chunk of that fanbase mobilized, to the point where it cost… More »

Ryn Weaver – “Octahate” Video (Version 2)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / May 14, 2015 - 12:50 pm

As much as I love the Brontë sisters, the mansions of their Victorian-era moors aren’t a place that anyone would ever dream of escaping to. They’re haunted and glum, and if you’re a woman, totally oppressive. Whether or not it takes place in England, Ryn Weaver’s new video for her massive 2014 summer single “OctaHate“… More »

Watch Miley Cyrus & Ariana Grande Cover Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over”

By Caitlin White / May 14, 2015 - 10:54 am

The Australian band Crowded House originally recorded “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” and it became one of those slow-rock, dreamy hits that characterized the late ’80s and early ’90s so well. Their version came out in 1986, which was before Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, or I was born, but maybe like me, the two pop star… More »

Watch Earl Sweatshirt & BADBADNOTGOOD’s Strange Kimmel Performance

By Tom Breihan / May 14, 2015 - 9:31 am

Earl Sweatshirt’s new album I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside is a dark, twisty, insular piece of work, not exactly the sort of thing that lends itself to late-night TV. But Sweatshirt still popped up on last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, doing three songs from the LP with the Toronto jazz-ra… More »

Watch David Letterman Bring Ryan Adams Back For An Encore

By Tom Breihan / May 14, 2015 - 8:32 am

In 2002, Ryan Adams came through the Late Show With David Letterman to perform “Starting To Hurt,” a song from his then-new album Demolition. He sounded great but looked absolutely out of it. The performance must’ve stuck with Letterman. Letterman is only a week away from retirement, and he’s saving his favorite guests for thi… More »

During a visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, Jessie Ware applied the smoldering soul-pop sounds of Tough Love to another 2014 highlight, Nick Jonas’ top-10 pop hit “Jealous.” Ware worked with Miguel, and the Jonas song seems inspired by Miguel, so it’s a perfect fit. Watch the cover below. More »

Last year saw Dave Grohl taking things to another level with his HBO documentary series and the massive, mainstream new Foo Fighters record, Sonic Highways.

Lianne La Havas – “Unstoppable” Video

By Caitlin White / May 13, 2015 - 2:52 pm

Lianne La Havas is so mesmerizing that she can dance alone in a room for four minutes and still leave you feeling spellbound. So why not take advantage of that ability?
