Watch the video for Usher's latest sexy single, 'Good Kisser'

Need a new sexy jam? Usher’s got you covered.

The Voice judge has released a video for the first single off his currently untitled eighth studio album. “Sexy Kisser” moves away from some of the EDM influences on 2012’s Looking 4 Myself, geting a little more soulful and funky.

“You make me wanna tap out and retire/Your pretty lips leave me so inspired” Usher croons. Check out the video for the  slighty NSFW track below — which of course includes some of Usher’s signature moves: READ FULL STORY

Moon Taxi's 'Morocco': Watch the Nashville buzz band's new video here

moon-taxi

If you haven’t seen Nashville rockers Moon Taxi on tour opening for the likes of Gov’t Mule or Matisyahu, or caught them earlier this year on Conan, you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re either ace travel agents or amateur geographers, based on the name of their most recent album, Mountains Beaches Cities, and the title of their latest single, “Morocco.”

But nope, they’re just a charmingly beard-y band, with a fun new video directed by photographer Matthew Wignall (Cold War Kids, Black Keys, Delta Spirit), which you can watch exclusively here: READ FULL STORY

Passion Pit remix SomeKindaWonderful's 'Reverse' -- EXCLUSIVE

Some-Kinda-Wonderful.jpg

Sometimes, inspiration is a tiny seed that hibernates until it blossoms, fed slowly but steadily by patience and luck. And sometimes it’s a thing that happens a few hours after a bunch of dudes meet in a bar in Cleveland.

That second scenario is pretty much how SomeKindaWonderful‘s “Reverse” which recently took the #1 most-played song spot on SiriusXM Alt Nation and is sneaking up the playlists of rock-radio stations across the country, came to be. Now the band’s breakout track has a brand-new remix by Passion Pit, available exclusively on EW.com — listen below: READ FULL STORY

On the scene at Coachella day two: Pharrell, Skrillex, Muse, Lorde -- and a parade of guest stars

By Saturday night, the Coachella Valley Music festival starts to feel like being favorably trapped inside a Choose Your Own Adventure book. Most options led to auspicious surprises, if you could withstand the cyclone winds choking the Polo Fields. At midnight, Nas performed the entirety of his seminal ’90s album Illmatic, accompanied by former nemesis-turned-ally Jay Z. Puff Daddy even bopped out to perform “Hate Me Now.” READ FULL STORY

OutKast comeback: Andre 3000 and Big Boi rock Coachella

“I know it’s kind of weird… 20 years later.” Andre 3000’s last words from OutKast’s 90-minute performance summarized the nostalgia, bizarre ambivalence, adrenal brilliance, and unadulterated joy that surrounded the duo’s much-trumpeted reunion at the 2014 Coachella Music Festival.

You didn’t need to guess at the level of anticipation; you merely had to listen to the squeals on the Indio field.  From the smoke machines and fog to the humid red lights and scarred American flag backdrop, to their magnetic charisma and take-it-or-leave-it attitude, the moment felt closer to a big-tent revival than a reunion.

If you wanted the greatest-hits set, you got it: from first song ”B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad)” to the finale, an aloof rendition of “Hey Ya.” There were guest spots from Janelle Monae, Future, and long-time Dungeon Family hook guru, Sleepy Brown (even if the majority of the young Indio crowd inevitably mistook him for the late Isaac Hayes). But if you expected the OutKast Super Fun-Fun Happy Hour, you might have been gravely disappointed. READ FULL STORY

Wu-Tang Clan to release one copy of new album, sell it for millions

wutang-album.jpg

When Wu-Tang Clan does something, they do it all the way. Case in point: The group’s crazy secret new album strategy that the world learned about yesterday in an extensive Forbes story.

As the product’s official website indicates, the legendary rap team’s stealthy new record is called The Wu – Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. There’ll only be one copy of the album… like, ever. It’ll be grandly “presented in a hand carved nickel-silver box designed by the British Moroccan artist Yahya,” and yes, it looks as fancy as it sounds. Before that one copy is sold, though, civilians can listen to the album when it embarks on an ambitious tour of museums, galleries, festivals, and other such happenings around the world. Then after that, the item will go up for sale, with an expected price range somewhere in the multi-millions.

Deep breath, guys:

The xx live at the Armory in New York: On the scene

the-xx.jpg


There may not be many new tricks in the modern concert handbook (
not good ones, anyway) but it was hard not to feel like a part of something special last night at the xx show at New York’s Park Avenue Armory.

The British dream-pop trio’s run in the historic New York space certainly defies typical rock-show math: 11 nights, each with two 50-minute performances for an audience of no more than 40 people, in a room so enormous (the main hall is 55,000 square feet) that it looks scaled to aircraft carriers, not humans.

In fact, the actual performance space was surprisingly small—at least at first. After being ushered in through a side door into a cramped basement room, the evening’s forty golden-ticket holders were led like obedient hostages through a winding series of sheetrock-dusted corridors and into a modest square that looked like the war room of a Bond villain, with its rubberized floor and black-clad minions. The minions, of course, were the band: Identically poker-faced, angularly coiffed, and completely silent as the audience filed in and were instructed to stand around the perimeter.

“Should we all take our clothes off now?” A friend leaned over and whispered. And it did have a little bit of a Wicker Man-meets-Eyes Wide Shut vibe, as if we were about to witness either a virgin sacrifice or a wild goat orgy. But then the first notes of music rang out: the spare, shimmering guitar line of the band’s 2012 single “Angels.” READ FULL STORY
