The Delta Mirror's 'Goldfish' video: Watch it here -- EXCLUSIVE

The-Delta-Mirror-Goldfish.jpg

L.A.’s self-described “electro shoe-goth” outfit The Delta Mirror has been busy releasing a new album, Better Unsung, and an appropriately Ian Curtis-y cover of Q Lazzurus’ cult classic “Goodbye Horses.”

But now frontman/mastermind Chris Acosta is going deeper, literally, with a new video for the single “Goldfish,” shot in the same 850,000-gallon-plus water tank used for movies including The Abyss, Waterworld, and Terminator 2.

Swim faster before Ah-nuld gets you, fishies! And watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY

Dave Chappelle and Prince, together at last! (Sort of)

Prince-Breakfast-Can-Wait.jpg

The cover art for Prince’s new single “Breakfast Can Wait,” debuted on Prince’s brand-new Twitter, is getting a lot of exciting reactions across the Internet, as it should — though some might be taking things too far. It is not, for example, “the best thing he’s ever done,” as one headline declared — we’d imagine Purple Rain or Sign o’ the Times might be near the top of that list.

Still, we do agree that it is pretty amazing. For those who were asleep during the years of 2003 and 2004, the cover is an image taken from one of Chappelle’s Show most famous sketches, featuring host Dave Chappelle dressed as a pancake-serving, basketball-playing Prince. And as Sunday’s New York Times pointed out, Chappelle is staging a return to comedy, so this is good timing for him, too.

To fully enjoy the moment, check out the original Chappelle’s Show sketch below:

New Coldplay song to be featured in 'Catching Fire'

The first Hunger Games soundtrack snagged Grammy-nominated contributions from some of music’s heaviest hitters — including Arcade Fire, Neko Case, The Decemberists, Kid Cudi, Maroon 5, Miranda Lambert, and Taylor Swift.

Now it’s looking like the sequel may be just as big: Coldplay announced today that they’ll be debuting a new song on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The song is called “Atlas.” Here’s a page with its scribbled lyrics, courtesy of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin:

Hear Diego Garcia's new song 'Sunnier Days' here -- EXCLUSIVE

diego-garcia-paradise.jpg

Diego Garcia was born in Detroit to Argentinian parents, but he’s probably best known for being part of the early-aughts New York scene that spawned the Strokes and Interpol. (Elefant, the band he fronted, played countless downtown gigs and even opened for the latter on tour. )

Nearly a decade later, Garcia still has the post-punk cheekbones, but his music has evolved into a gentler, more Latin-tinged sound — like the new “Sunnier Days,” from his upcoming solo album Paradise, due Oct. 8.

MGMT's best song in ages, 'Your Life Is a Lie,' gets a great video -- WATCH

We all know MGMT have a fame-and-fortune complex: When F&F beckoned, they responded with the snidely-titled Congratulations, which our then-critic called an “odd little sonic onion … [that] studiously avoided any obvious pop hook.”

Their third album, which comes out September 17, is self-titled, so it could be about anything. “Alien Days,” a space-out from the album that was released as a Record Store Day cassingle (LOL), suggested we were in for more of the same. But their bracing new single, “Your Life Is a Lie,” hints at an MGMT under new management.

Two minutes long and rather rude, “Your Life Is a Lie” is more or less the sound of a band pulling its head out of its ass. It’s got a gnarly, looping garage-rock drive, and more niceties than you’d expect from such a quickie: cowbell, an almost comically buzzy high-end, some kind of something solo that you could (yes) call spacey, and a magnificent hook.

Miley Cyrus does Big Sean a big favor by starring in his 'Fire' video -- Watch it here

No, Miley Cyrus does not twerk in this video. Yes, she wears a sweater that ends just below her nipples. But with a bra under it. But with the cups torn out. No, she does not slap her own behind. Yes, she wears other truncated, torn-up, peekaboo, see-through, shiny, leathery micro-articles of clothing.

Yes, Big Sean was savvy to make a video for “Fire”—a song off his album Hall of Fame, due out August 27—that stars Miley Cyrus and shows only a glimpse of him, wearing sunglasses, with flames superimposed over his face.

No, this is not merely a ploy for publicity. Although it is also that. Yes, it is a juxtaposition of dense, exultant music with spacious, drifting visuals.

No, Miley Cyrus does not sing on the song. But it is a great song. Yes, Big Sean is on “fire” here. Yes, Miley Cyrus has done it again. Yes, you can watch it here:

Prince covers Shania Twain's 'You're Still the One': Listen to the vintage audio!

Back in the late ’90s, something happened that was so magical it would never be heard of again: Prince, that avid hater of the Internet, took a stab at Web 1.0 and posted onto his site a RealPlayer stream of himself and Marva King covering Shania Twain’s “You’re Still the One.” (Of course, since he’s Prince, he called it “Ur Still the 1,” but it’s the same song.) Some 16 years then passed, and people went on with their daily lives and bought iPods and Zunes, and the song was forgotten.

Until now. Dan Chamberlain dug up the relic while ripping old “Napster-era” mix CDs onto his laptop, and now the great cover demo is back in our lives, America. Give it a listen below:

One Direction's 'Best Song Ever' breaks Miley's most-viewed record

One-Direction.jpg

What a shocker: Directioners really do think 1D’s latest is the “Best Song Ever”!

Yesterday, the British group’s rabid fans banded together to propel Harry, Niall, Zayn, Liam and Louis’s new single to the top of the digital charts. All in all, they viewed it an astonishing 10.9 million times — making it the most-watched video in a 24-hour period in Vevo history. The record was previously set by Miley Cyrus earlier this summer; her surreal “We Can’t Stop” video racked up 10.7 million views in the day after its release.

Why did this clip get so much attention? Simple: At 6 minutes and 13 seconds, it’s a veritable mini-movie that doubles as a preview for One Direction’s actual movie, which will be released in 3-D Aug. 30. The video also features Zayn in drag, Liam in a bleached-blond wig, Harry in geek-chic glasses, and Niall and Louis in fake facial hair, fat suits, and exaggerated American accents. Oh, and then there’s the song itself — which may not really be the “best ever,” but is pretty catchy all the same.

Watch the quintet’s shenanigans below — and just try not to be charmed.

Icona Pop announce fall album date, release new single 'All Night'

Icona-Pop-This-Is-Cover.jpg

The Swedish electro-pop breakout Icona Pop has had a good run in the States despite the fact that they never released an album here. But hey, who needs something as old-fashioned as an LP when you’ve got Robin Thicke give your songs sexy makeovers?

Well, apparently Icona Pop still do: the duo has announced a date for their first U.S. album. Titled This Is…, the group’s American debut will hit streets Sept. 24. And as a preview, they’ve already released the album’s cover art (above) and a Soundcloud of their next Stateside single “All Night,” which you can hear below:

An acoustic summer jam by... the Backstreet Boys? Hear it here first!

Backstreet-Boys-In-a-World-Like-This.jpg

“Trust Me” has a laid-back vibe that feels very Jack Johnson. Its gentle guitar brings Jason Mraz to mind. Sultry lyrics like “Oh love/You and me/Underneath the willow tree/Kissin’, lovin’/Makin’ sweet sexy babies” sound like they could be a PG-13 version of Robin Thicke.

But listen closer to the distinctive voices crooning each verse — not to mention the occasional tight harmony — and you’ll realize that this sweet, acoustic earworm actually comes from the last source you’d expect: the Backstreet Boys, all grown up and unplugged.

“Trust Me” is a new song off their upcoming album, In a World Like This. Get an exclusive preview below — for maximum effect, listen while swinging in a hammock and sipping something cold.
