During their recent visit to The Tonight Show with Jimmy FallonBlur also recorded a backstage, acoustic version of the superb "Tender" with Jimmy Fallon accompanying on guitar and vocals. Check it out in the replies.
Turnover's new album, the stunning Peripheral Vision, is out today via Run For Cover Records. The label is selling the album digitally for only $5 on Bandcamp. I've been entranced by this record all morning; I recommend taking a listen to the stream and then buying it 39 minutes and 11 seconds later.
Now, with context, “Mene” isn’t just a song anymore; it’s a highly-anticipated monster of a single that, to some fans, fell absolutely flat. Why? Because there’s that hanging suspense that’s set in unrealistic fantasies of what the band can perfectly achieve for every individual fan out there. The song, and now the band’s new album, is plagued with expectational bias.
Cosmopolitan compiled a list of what celebrities each state most wants to dress like. Maine's is Hayley Williams from Paramore.
Cosmopolitan.com and Polyvore pulled data on style icons by state, and the results are equal parts surprising (Mainers love Hayley Williams of Paramore) and obvious (Washington, D.C., residents adore Michelle Obama).
You can check out my new interview with Enter Shikari vocalist Rou Reynolds here. The band's brand new album, The Mindsweep, is out now both in-stores and online.
It’s difficult, especially today because I feel like the education system, media, and the museums feel the need to make the sciences about “little explosions!” and “mixing this liquid with that liquid, woo!”. I think the most exciting thing for me is learning about stuff like cosmology, stuff that makes us feel really small and insignificant, that’s the most empowering thing.
Miguel has released an updated version of his 2014 single "Coffee." The new version is extended by a couple of minutes and inexplicably features Wale in 2015, and is retitled "Coffee (Fucking)." Thankfully, there is also an extended version that does not feature Wale, and you can stream both in the replies and decide which is better for yourself. Miguel's new album is tentatively titled Wild Heart, and has yet to be given a release date.
Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day sat down with Rolling Stone to talk about their new record and the Hall of Fame.
Before we found any of this out, I had already written a few songs and everybody was really excited by them. And then we heard about the Hall of Fame, and we were just blown away. Yeah, I mean, we're going to take our time. We're not going to try and pull off some, like, victory lap over this because I definitely want the music to come from a real place and be inspired, not just because we got honored or anything like that, but because we're honoring music. We want to work on them, and we want to make a great album.
