Article: Don Cheadle Envisions Herbie Hancock And Jay-Z For His Miles Davis Biopic

Don Cheadle has big plans for a Miles Davis resurgence. Hearing his ideas for the biopic which Cheadle plans to both direct and star in, you almost get the sense that, more than making good film, his main motivation is to introduce the jazz legend to a new generation of fans. “We just turned in…

Exclusive Premiere: Charles Bradley “The World (Is Going Up In Flames)”

Article: Exclusive Premiere: Charles Bradley “The World (Is Going Up In Flames)”

Charles Bradley found his calling when he saw James Brown perform at The Apollo in 1964 and promptly began perfecting his moves at home with a broom-turned-microphone. But like his similarly influenced soul sister (and now label mate), Sharon Jones, he’s spent most of the ensuing years just trying to get by — honing his…

Grizzly Bear Underscores “Blue Valentine”

Article: Grizzly Bear Underscores “Blue Valentine”

Director Derek Cianfrance always wanted Brooklyn’s Grizzly Bear to score his film “Blue Valentine,” but it wasn’t quite meant to be, at least not technically speaking. Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste told Variety, “Derek contacted us about three years ago. We were really excited. We were between albums, and we were ready. They hadn’t shot yet,…

It’s A Kanye Christmas!

Article: It’s A Kanye Christmas!

The holly jolly Kanye West Christmas song that popped up online isn’t a finished version, just a leak according to EW. You wouldn’t know to hear it though, with Kanye and accomplices caroling on a track called “Christmas In Harlem,” it doesn’t sound like it’s lacking any necessary production or Yuletide cheer.

OK Go’s Parade Spells Band’s Name Out Using People On Streets Of LA

Article: OK Go’s Parade Spells Band’s Name Out Using People On Streets Of LA

Masters of the pop music video OK Go took to the streets of LA with 100 friends to have a parade, and while they were at it they spelled “OK Go” out in what EW rightly described as a “GPS-assisted human Etch-a-Sketch.” It smells a bit like a plug for Range Rover’s GPS tracking app,…

Article: Most Viewed YouTube Video Of 2010 Is The “Bed Intruder Song”

When Kelly Dodson was “attacked by some idiot from out here in the projects,” it was no laughing matter, but watching her brother come on all strong and crazy on the local Huntsville, Alabama news piece afterward was one of the most entertaining events of the summer.

Article: Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly Remake Bing/Bowie Classic

David Bowie and Bing Crosby’s “The Little Drummer Boy / Peace On Earth” recording and TV special is nearly as much a part of obligatory holiday viewing as “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” This year Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly decided to revisit the oddball pairing, which was totally surreal in the late 70′s when…

Ten Greatest Music Videos Of 2010

Article: Ten Greatest Music Videos Of 2010

We’ve premiered quite a few magnificent music videos this year, and some of the best to be seen anywhere just in the past few months, if I dare say. Since there are far too many shot for any one person to see them all, inevitably, all the issues of bias and subjectivity that apply to…

J Mascis’ Acoustic Treat, “Not Enough”

Article: J Mascis’ Acoustic Treat, “Not Enough”

It’s hard to believe that J Mascis just finished his first solo record, after all these years and various projects outside of Dinosaur Jr. Remember his 1996 album, “Martin + Me?” Martin was a guitar, not a guy doing a duet with Mascis, but that was a live record. So Mascis’ for real first solo…

Carly Simon V. Starbucks

Article: Carly Simon V. Starbucks

There is a running list of reasons to dislike Starbucks, not least of which is the inability of their baristas to pull a drinkable shot of espresso with that crap they peddle. I submit that the convenience of their public bathrooms has been eclipsed by bad mocha. Now we can add bad mojo to the…

Article: John Darnielle Compares New Mountain Goats Album To A Scene in “The Warriors”

The comps, singles, 10″s, and side projects are too numerous to count. Their latest full length, “All Eternals Deck,”…

Three days before he was killed, John Lennon spent several hours doing an interview with Jonathan Cott for Rolling Stone, but it was never published until now.

Daft Punk released their official video for “Derezzed,” the first single off of their soundtrack for “Tron:Legacy.” In it, the French duo walk into Flynn’s arcade, plug some quarters into a long forgotten 1981 Encom machine and play a light cycles-turned jousting game.

Article: Nick Cave Explains Why What Women Say Is Kind of Irrelevant

Before you get up in arms, Nick Cave was talking about what goes on in a man’s mind when he said, “Women don’t have the authority because they don’t know what goes on in a man’s head, so largely what they say is kind of irrelevant.” Truly, it would be folly to go around claiming…
