Nick-and-Knight.jpg

In 2010, boy band powerhouses New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys paired up for a joint NKOTBSB tour. Now a spinoff group has evolved, with Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and New Kid Jordan Knight pairing for their own album and national tour.

The duo, now known as Nick & Knight, released their first single, “One More Time,” in July with their debut album scheduled for a September 2nd release. From there, Nick & Knight will head out on a two-month U.S. tour beginning in Nashville on September 15. Tickets are available now.

We’ve got an exclusive first look at the guys’ debut music video for “One More Time.”

Watch the latest video from Meshell Ngedeocello, 'Shopping for Jazz'

Meshell Ndegeocello has had a remarkably long and successful career in the music industry for someone who’s steadfastly refused to fit in one of the easily recognizable categories that that usually entails. Since the late ’80s, she’s dabbled in pretty much every genre imaginable, from roots rock to techno. (Trivia tidbit: She got her start in the funk-heavy D.C. go-go scene.)

Her latest single, “Shopping for Jazz,” dabbles in several distinctly disparate styles at once, combining a bossa nova foundation with a country slide guitar and slinky soul vocals. It’s the first video from her new album, Comet, Come to Me, which features contributions from a fittingly broad range of guests including Amp Fiddler, Doyle Bramhall, and My Brightest Diamond.

Ndegeocello will start touring behind Comet in September. You can find her itinerary here.

Ladies in white bow to the sun in The Black Keys' 'Weight of Love' video

The Black Keys’ video for “Fever” featured frontman Dan Auerbach as a televangelist who inspires a, well, fever among his audience members. That televangelist is back in the band’s new video for “Weight of Love”—but this time, he’s on the television screen in a cult’s house. READ FULL STORY

Paintings come to life in Arcade Fire's 'You Already Know' video

Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler was too busy directing the music video for “You Already Know” to actually sing, so he got some help for his parts—from paintings with moving mouths and neon pink tape covering their eyes.

Watch Amoureux's gorgeously choreographed 'Lost the Plot' video

The ability to make and distribute music videos used to be limited to a relatively elite level of performers, but with cheap technology and free digital distribution, anyone with at least a song and a smartphone can make one. Consequently, there’s been a biblical-level deluge of them, forcing creators to take increasingly contrived routes to getting noticed—hence the numbing amount of NSFW clips trying desperately to shock viewers, or elaborate, Rube Golbergian ones like nearly all of OK Go’s videography, where the gimmick far overshadows the music itself.

Compared to its stunt-dependent competition, the video for indie-pop duo Amoureaux’s “Lost the Plot” is an elegantly understated breath of fresh air. It stars dancers Reshma Gajjar and Hunter Hamilton (who in the past have done work for Madonna and Sia), choreographed by Kitty McNamee and directed by Miles Crawford, with little to distract from their performance. Amoureux bassist Holiday J and drummer Nicole Turley are both former dancers, and the collaboration with McNamee and Crawford highlights how much they’re still focused on rhtyhm.

“I fell in love with the rawness of this song,” writes McNamee in an email. “It swept me in. I think it triggered a very personal response to the music.”

“I was intrigued by the idea of stalemate,” Crawford adds. “All the moves have been tried, and yet we aren’t ready to give up the game. In the repetition we lose our way, our purpose. We go at it again and again, finding the same result, until finally there is nothing, but to let it go. That, and I wanted to play with flour.”

Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora break out katanas and jumpsuits for 'Black Widow'

Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora’s song “Black Widow” raises a lot of questions—like what does it mean that Rita Ora wants to love somebody until they hate her and also like a black widow? And what is up with Iggy’s tautologically fraught line, “If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be stuck singing this song?” And has someone, possibly a close friend or family member, talked to them about the fact that getting into “Fatal Attraction s–t” isn’t something they should be so proud of, and maybe they should consider a course of intensive therapy?

The video for the track only keeps the questions coming. Why is Iggy Azalea working in a greasy spoon with a poster in the kitchen that clearly has a drawing of her on it? What kind of high-intensity boob tape are she and Rita Ora using in those jumpsuits? And did anyone think that there were people out there who were begging to see Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora try their hand at comedic acting?

Robyn and Royksopp float through space in 'Monument' video

Forget yoga retreats in the mountains—judging from Robyn and Röyksopp’s video for “Monument,” space is the place to go for all your meditating needs.

Robyn and the members of Norwegian duo Röyksopp float on a white circle through space, occasionally getting up to dance in slow motion and stare at each other in wonder. The dazed video reflects the dreaminess of “Monument,” a track more ethereal than the dance-pop Robyn’s known for.

Ariana Grande brings intergalactic excitement to 'Break Free' video

Ryan Adams teams up with Elvira for 'Gimme Something Good' video

Ryan-Adams.jpg

Ryan Adams has basically three distinct phases of his creative process, and he’s been bouncing back and forth between them for his entire solo career. When he’s not dropping entirely out of the public eye to the point where people start to wonder if he’s finally completely lost the thread, he’s releasing wacko projects that make people start to feel pretty confident about their suspicions. And when he’s not busy doing either of those he simply puts out music that reaffirms his position as one of the few truly great roots-rock troubadours left.

Judging by his latest single, “Gimme Something Good,” he’s currently in the latter mood. With its clipped blues guitar figure, haunting organ, and anxious vocal line, the song feels like his homage to Fleetwood Mac, and it’s one of the best things he’s released in recent memory.

Priory's 'Weekend' is keeping the arena-rock anthem alive

Recent pop history has been notably light on the kind of epically-scaled rock anthems built for fist-pumping, arena-shaking singalongs that dominated the radio throughout the ’80s and ’90s. Portland duo Priory is singlehandedly reversing that trend with their song “Weekend,” which for the past month has been slowly gaining momentum on radio and seems destined to go onto even bigger things.

Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears met at shows around Portland, but the idea to collaborate musically didn’t come until Rush moved into a punk house that Sears was living in. “We just sat down for the first time with acoustic guitars and it was kind of instantaneous,” Sears says. “Literally I think the first time we sat down we wrote the foundations for like two songs.”
