Joe Jonas may be “on his worst behavior,” but from where we’re standing, his bad side sounds pretty darn good.
“Love Slayer,” a spiffy new single from Jonas’ Oct. 11 album FastLife, was released online today. (Have a listen here at the AOL Music Blog.)
The 21-year-old’s clubby, Taio Cruz-esque ode to an irresistible “stone-cold dream stealer,” is the second release off of FastLife; Jonas’ “See No More” is already available on iTunes, though he’s also performed songs from FastLife in his live shows this summer.
JoBro No. 2 has been a busy kid lately (seriously, our Jonas Sonar has just about bleep-blurped itself to death these last few weeks): Apparently when he’s not busy putting out hot records, protectively haunting Olivia Wilde’s house, or paying zero attention to Shia LeBeouf, he’s hanging out with Britney Spears.
As reported on People.com, Jonas joined Spears and Nicki Minaj on their Femme Fatale tour for a show in New Jersey on Aug. 5, and announced last week that he’s signed on to play 10 shows on the European leg of the tour, starting Oct. 16.
What do you think, Music Mix readers? Is Joe’s new bad-boy persona a little grown-up for the onetime teen sensation? Or is Joe bad and perfectly good at it? Let us know in the comments!

'Boardwalk Empire' soundtrack full listing, including Regina Spektor's take on 'My Man': Hear it here -- EXCLUSIVE
The fates of Nucky Thompson and the rest of the bootlegging gangsters who inhabit the world of HBO’s Emmy-nominated drama Boardwalk Empire will continue to unfold when the show returns for a second season on September 25.
To properly prepare yourself for the new episodes, EW suggests you make yourself a healthy batch of bathtub gin and settle in with Boardwalk Empire Volume 1 – Music From the HBO Original Series, the show’s official soundtrack album set to be released on September 13.
The 16-track collection features a sharp cross-section of tunes from the show, including contributions from Loudon Wainwright III, Nellie McKay, Leon Redbone, Martha Wainwright, and Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks (the contemporary jazz combo who also serve as the house band at Babette’s Supper Club on the show).
It also includes New York songbird Regina Spektor’s version of “My Man,” a tune initially made famous by Fanny Brice (who would later be immortalized as the subject of the musical Funny Girl). You can hear the exclusive premiere of Spektor’s song after the jump. READ FULL STORY »
Rob Crow has been associated with a colorful cavalcade of monikers over his long career, including alt heroes Pinback, Heavy Vegetables, Optiganally Yours, Physics, and Snotnose.
But his latest release, He Thinks He’s People (which comes out on October 18), will be coming out under his own name.
If first single “Sophistructure” is any indication, it’s an appropriate use of his government-recognized handle. Though Crow has an affinity for the circular structures and odd angles of math rock, “Sophistructure” builds a confident head of steam via guitar crunch and low-fi histrionics that help marry the twitches with a subversive sense of melody.
It’s three minutes of turned-to-11 psychedelia that brings together most of the things Crow obsesses over in his music.

I was re-(re-re-re-re-)watching The Social Network a couple of days ago and one of the lines jumped out at me. Well, actually, all of the lines jumped out at me—oh, you and your snappy dialogue, Aaron Sorkin—but especially when Justin Timberlake, playing entrepreneurial roller coaster Sean Parker, explains that despite founding Napster, he was dead broke because “there’s not a lot of money in free music.”
While that was undoubtedly true in the days of Napster’s brave Lewis and Clark quest into the copyright wilderness, fending off vicious packs of feral Ulrichs, it looks like we’re edging closer to the point where the way we consume music has changed completely. In essence, iTunes isn’t much more than the online equivalent of a giant Sam Goody’s; but something like Spotify, which has finally made its debut in the United States after massive success overseas, signals many more possibilities.
The program isn’t shockingly new from things we’ve seen before—sites likes Grooveshark and Pandora gave us access to tons of songs for free, as well—but Spotify has an easy, Facebook-compatible system that encourages sharing. Structured around playlists, it allows users to build their own, pass them along to friends, and then trawl through those friends’ collections for songs they like.
In terms of content, Spotify says they have 15 million songs, but, in the words of Aaliyah, that ain’t nothing but a number. Importantly, that figure includes songs and albums that people care about right now, like the new Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. There’s also variety: Just tooling around this afternoon, I found an extensive array of artists, along a ton of different axes, from Katy Perry to Panda Bear, Ke$ha to Tchaikov$ky, Bird to Birdman. Not everything is available just yet. For example, there a big, soulful hole where Adele’s 21 should be, even if they do have her previous album. READ FULL STORY »
Hear Tyler Hilton's 'Faithful,' from the Tom Hanks-produced 'Larry Crowne' soundtrack: An EW Exclusive!
Tom Hanks is a man of many talents. Not only does he play the title role in Larry Crowne (which opens today), but he also co-wrote and directed the flick as well. And while he didn’t sew all the costumes (as Jon Stewart suggested on The Daily Show), he did coproduce the soundtrack to the film.
The soundtrack, which just hit stores this week, includes a trio of Tom Petty songs (including “Running Down a Dream,” which Michele Bachmann is also not allowed to use at rallies), Billy Squier’s “The Stroke,” Sky Ferreira’s should’ve-been-bigger 2010 hit “Obsession” and a pair of ELO tracks.
There’s also the unreleased Tyler Hilton song “Faithful,” which EW has an exclusive stream of here. Listen below: READ FULL STORY »
Diplo is the American superproducer behind such dancefloor-filling hits as M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” and Santigold’s “Starstruck.” The Wombats are a trio of Liverpudlians who craft bright, buzzy indie pop concoctions that have made audiences on both sides of the Atlantic shake and swoon. And now, the two camps of jet-setting soundsmiths have come together.
In fact, Diplo got his hands on the Wombats’ new single “Techno Fan” (from their 2011 album This Modern Glitch), and the resulting piece of beat science can be found below in an exclusive Entertainment Weekly premiere. Follow the jump, turn up your speakers and clear some floor space:
Taylor Swift's tour openers Needtobreathe debut their 'Girl Named Tennessee' video: Watch it here - EXCLUSIVE
Opening a tour for a multiplatinum crossover star like Taylor Swift is pretty much the music-industry equivalent of winning one of Willy Wonka’s golden tickets—and South Carolina country-rock quartet Needtobreathe have snagged that prize, joining Swift on the road as she kicked off her latest tour last week.
And now, the foursome may have a crossover hit of their own in “Girl Named Tennessee,” which comes from the band’s 2009 album The Outsiders.
Check out the clip for the rollicking foot-stomper after the jump:
It’s almost anti-climactic, really.
It was set to drop Monday, but when the singer previewed the entire album for UK subscribers of the British newspaper Metro, even she must have known that it was going to go viral faster than Ebola. Get our first impression after the break: READ FULL STORY »
