It’s been a big couple of weeks for the Black Keys. They performed on SNL, released their eighth album, Turn Blue, managed to escape from the sinister clutches of Danny McBride on our cover, and now they’ve got themselves their first ever chart-topping record.

Miley Cyrus was out of commission for a spell, which kept her away of eye-popping costumes and attention-grabbing headlines for a few weeks. (How did the Internet not sink into the ocean due to a dearth of Cyrus-related material?)
But now she’s back, touring Europe, happily grinding against anatomically correct blow-up dolls, and dropping in on Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards via satellite to deliver a cover of the Beatles’ “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds” with some help from the Flaming Lips.
Last week, the Seattle Police Department continued its inexplicable habit of releasing more evidence from the crime scene where Kurt Cobain was found dead two decades ago.
This time around, rather than reveal grisly photos, they unveiled a note found in Cobain’s wallet that read, “Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring.” READ FULL STORY
Earlier this week, Paul Simon and Edie Brickell found themselves in the news thanks to a disorderly conduct charge brought against the couple, married nearly 22 years, after police in Connecticut went to their home on a domestic disturbance call on Saturday night.
They’re back in the news today, this time for releasing a duet called “Like to Get To Know You.”
With the release of her new album Food last week, singer and Le Cordon Bleu-certified chef Kelis has gone from “Milkshake” to full-on smorgasbord — tracks on the album include “Jerk Ribs,” “Cobbler” “Friday Fish Fry,” and “Biscuits n’ Gravy.”
But she’s hardly the first artist to find her muse on a menu. Place your order below—and stream our full food playlist (minus a few songs that weren’t available on Spotify; apologies to fans of both Pumpkins and egg-based condiments): READ FULL STORY
Fifteen years ago today, Ben Folds Five released their third album, titled The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner. It is by no means a masterpiece (though it is ultimately underrated), and had to have been considered a commercial disappointment after the group’s previous effort, 1997′s Whatever and Ever Amen, went Platinum on the back of the breakout single “Brick.”
But Reinhold Messner is also deeply wonderful in its strangeness, and it stands as one of the ballsier post-crossover albums a one-hit wonder ever produced. (And make no mistake: BFF is a one hit wonder—Folds had solo success after the band broke up, but their impact as a collective begins and ends with “Brick.”) To celebrate the album’s 15th anniversary (an off-kilter number, I acknowledge), here are 15 thoughts about an album that I literally think about every day.
Fresh off the all-is-forgiven love-fest that was Nirvana’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Courtney Love is back with some fresh music. The new track is called “You Know My Name,” and it finds Love burning some bridges on the back of a thumping pop-punk riff. It’s one half of a double A-side single (along with a song called “Wedding Day”) that will be officially released on May 4.
Summer festival season has only just begun, but it’s already time to start thinking about where you’re going to binge on music this fall. You can start with Slim Shady himself, who is the just-announced headliner at the annual Austin City Limits Festival.
Record Store Day 2014 Roundup: Reviews and samples of new stuff by Bruce Springsteen, Jack White, and the glorious return of Veruca Salt
Another Record Store Day is in the books, and based on preliminary statistics and the number of photos of crowded indie shops that popped up all over Instagram on Saturday, it appears to be bigger than ever.
This year’s crop of exclusive vinyl releases featured several big-time reissues or first vinyl appearances of classic albums, but there were also a handful of newly minted pieces of music unveiled via Saturday’s festivities. Bruce Springsteen released a four-song salvo, Jack White set a record with a record, and Veruca Salt announced their return via two new tracks. Check out the reviews of these new tunes from big-name artists below.
