Dave Grohl has shared intimate details about his career in a revealing interview with CBS.
After the gargantuan success of ‘This is America’, Childish Gambino is at it again. Now, he’s treating us with two new singles to appear on streaming services bundled in a ‘Summer Pack’. Straying away from the highly political and fierce tone of ‘This is America’, the musician comes back with two escapist, easygoing r&b songs that talk about summer relationships and having fun.
It’s a visual and auditory treat that feels like going down the rabbit hole. In her debut single, entitled In Bloom , Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Kini Solana gives us a spellbinding performance filled with high, drifting vocals and a dream-like melody
American Idiot , Green Day’s stinging piece of political commentary on the George W Bush White House is back in the news, almost 14 years after its release. The song was bravely delivered 18 months after the Dixie Chicks wore just about all the hate America could handle for criticising the president
Whether you dig her tunes or not, there’s no denying Florence Welch – the frontwoman of Florence + The Machine – knows her way around a pop song and has arguably the best set of pipes in the industry at the moment.
After some pretty intense criticism on social media, TC Electronic has announced they will stop selling a preset guitar pedal effect that they created in conjunction with Steel Panther’s guitarist, Satchel. Steel Panther are known for their sexually charged lyrics and performances, which are both inspired by and taking the piss out of the ’80s hair-metal scene. So when your band is taking notes on how to behave from the likes of Nikki Sixx, Gene Simmons, and Bret Michaels, it’s probably no surprise that some of the names you come up with are on the racier side.
The murder of Tupac Shakur is one of modern music’s enduring unsolved mysteries. Tupac was shot in a drive-by on September 7, 1996, in Las Vegas. He and Suge Knight – who was then head of Death Row Records, the label to which Tupac was signed – pulled up to a red light in Knight’s BMW when a Cadillac pulled up next to them and the occupants fired shots into the car
Google’s autocomplete technology is a serious rocks or diamonds proposition. Every time it saves you from having to finish typing out a really obvious question, you’ll likely have two instances where you’ll accidentally hit “enter” after typing “how do I” only to end up being sent to a page with a series of links to a LeAnn Rimes song. (I mean, that’s not the worst outcome though, is it?) But YouTuber Billy Cobb – who says on his about page, “I like to experiment making rock music” – has taken advantage of these often unexpected results to create a series of wondrous covers of some massive hits
Britney Spears’ 2003 hit Toxic isn’t what you’d typically include in your summertime playlist, but thanks to one Canadian band, it now should be. Toronto-based all-girl Surf Rock group Surfrajettes has released a cover that takes the classic Britney Spears song and gives it a Beach Boys vibe
He even got to sing using Jack White’s own guitar, too! Fresh off releasing his The Night Has An Alibi music video, Australian artist Wons Phreely visited Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville to do a live recording in their antique “studio”. For the uninitiated, Third Man Records’ record booth is a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine that records up to two minutes of audio then dispenses a one-of-a-kind six-inch phonograph disc.
