Even if you don’t know recognize Hozier by name, you may have already run across “Take Me To Church,” the soulful ballad that showed up in a key moment during HBO’s The Leftovers and comes pre-approved by Revenge, Arrow, and The Fault In Our Stars music supervisor Season Kent. The track steadily climbed up the Irish singles chart last fall, then made its first impact in America after Hozier performed it on The Late Show With David Letterman in the spring. It currently sits at 62 on the Billboard Hot 100, has over 13 million views on YouTube, and promises to leap even further into the consciousness thanks to his appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Not bad for a song cut in a cramped storage space.

Norah Jones closed out George Harrison week on Conan on Thursday night with a rendition of “Behind That Locked Door” from Harrison’s 1970 album, All Things Must Pass.
Tonight’s premiere of the new season of The Voice features two familiar faces and two newcomers. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are back once again, but they’ll be joined by first-time coaches Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani. The latter two are both new to singing competitions, and it’ll be interesting to see what kind of personalities emerge as the blind auditions roll on.
But neither Stefani nor Williams should look to their left for advice, Shelton tells EW: “I didn’t tell them crap,” Shelton said, laughing. “That’s my competition. We do these interviews, and Adam will get mad at me because I won’t help them. This is a competition, and my job is to try to win this thing. When I started on this show, nobody helped me!”
The most important movie soundtrack this year was undoubtedly the top-shelf compilation put together by Season Kent for The Fault In Our Stars, and not just because it gave us Charli XCX’s inimitable “Boom Clap.” Kent has quickly become one of the go-to names in music supervision, and though she’s working on more and more film projects (she just got started working on the Magic Mike sequel), she has primarily made her bones on television.
This season, she returns to both Arrow and Revenge, and adds the brand new Arrow spin-off The Flash to her portfolio. In an effort to give our Shazam apps a rest during the forthcoming TV season, we asked Kent to make us a playlist of songs that we’ll eventually be hearing under our favorite dramatic moments and montages. Check out her picks and listen to the Spotify playlist below.
Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter informed fans at Comic-Con that the show’s final ride will be too bumpy for Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) to take a timeout for another gig as an Elvis impersonator. But here’s a consolation for those wanting to hear Boone sing again—and it’s for a good cause.
Timed to the premiere of the FX drama’s seventh and final season, Rock the Cause Records will release Boone’s cover of the Sonny Bono-penned classic “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” featuring producer/singer/songwriter Kevin Bowe to iTunes on Sept. 9. Net proceeds of the song will benefit the nonprofit label, which has raised more than a million dollars for various charities, to help support the organization’s internal operating expenses. EW has the premiere below. READ FULL STORY
Comedy folk duo Garfunkel and Oates recently followed in the footsteps of past comedy folk music duos like Flight of the Conchords and the Smothers Brothers by bringing their act to the small screen. Last week, IFC aired the first episode of Garfunkel and Oates, which follows the ups and downs of a lightly fictionalized version of the pair as they play uncomfortable corporate gigs, try to land TV appearances, deal with comedian boyfriends who use their sex lives as joke fodder, and face other challenges comedy folk music acts apparently encounter.
The pair have assembled an impressive lineup of guest stars for their first season, including Chris Parnell, Natasha Leggero, Anthony Jeselnik, Tig Notaro, Steve Agee, Chris Hardwick, and, most improbably, Sir Ben Kingsley. But in terms of metatextual humor, it’s hard to beat a cameo from the group’s partial namesake John Oates. He appears in an episode entitled “Rule 34″ (airing this Thursday, Aug. 14), in which Garfunkel and Oates encounter a porn version of themselves played by Abby Elliott and Sugar Lyn Beard.
We have an exclusive sneak peek at Oates’s scene, plus a Q&A with the soul-pop star about his acting debut.
Watch A$AP Rocky hang out at Kathy Griffin's house in a NSFW scene from new Noisey doc here -- EXCLUSIVE
The upcoming A$AP Rocky documentary SVDDXNLY is not short on celebrity cameos: There be Snoop; there be Macklemore; there be Drake and Rihanna and Schoolboy Q and Big Sean and Bun B and Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa and Jeremy Scott and Glee‘s Naya Rivera looking like she took a real wrong left turn at the Glendale Galleria.
But the hour-long film’s maximum bonkers moment may be the footage of Rocky’s visit to the Los Angeles home of actress/comedian/Bravolebrity Kathy Griffin, in which two famous people arrive as strangers and leave as death-wish friends, and A$AP learns many new things about sex, secret handshakes, and how to light a very expensive fireplace from the future.
Click below to watch what happened when A$AP met Kathy –it’s just like when Harry Met Sally, but with 87% more hand job jokes. (Again, this clip is not NSFW): READ FULL STORY
(Spoilers if you haven’t watched episodes 5 and 6 of the show’s new season, albeit not very important spoilers.)
Yes, we mean Joe Caputo’s band: Sideboob. The prison employee’s surprise passion for — what do we call it? — big house rock was one of the great moments of character shading that came early in the Netflix prison dramedy’s second season. But another reveal might be even better: You can actually listen to some of his band’s music online, and even buy their album.
Country’s brightest stars were on hand at Wednesday’s CMT Music Awards, where one unlikely name was among the night’s big winners: Lionel Richie. The former Commodores crooner took home the prize for CMT Performance of the Year for his mash-up of “Oh No” and “All Night Long” with Luke Bryan at the 2013 CMT Artists of the Year event. Country couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert also took home the his-and-hers hardware of Male and Female Video of the Year, respectively, while The Band Perry (above) nabbed Best Group Video.
