Watch Courtney Barnett’s Lovely Cover of Leonard Cohen’s “So Long, Marianne”

One chill way to start your weekend is by sinking into Courtney Barnett’s new MTV Unplugged set. The Aussie singer-songwriter performed selections from throughout her career and covered Archie Roach’s “Charcoal Lane” and Seeker Lover Keeper’s “Not Only I.” What’s hitting me hardest, though, is Barnett’s rusty rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “So Long, Marianne,” backed...

2019 Was a Good Year for Pancakes in Music Videos

Earlier today, Rico Nasty released a new track called “Hard.” Following “Time Flies” and “Fashion Week,” it’s her third single since the release of Anger Management, her EP with producer Kenny Beats, earlier this year. But even more important than the song is the accompanying pancake-centric visual, which cements an encouraging new relationship between the world of music videos and...

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Release “Life On Mars?” Ambient Cover for Watchmen

Listen, I’m as sick of “haunting covers” as the next guy. But sometimes they’re good, and on this past Sunday’s episode of Watchmen, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross made a formidable contribution to the genre with a take on David Bowie’s “Life on Mars?” While most of Reznor and Ross’ work for the show has dealt in heavy, serrated electronics,...

Stone Temple Pilots have announced a new album titled Perdida and released the first single, “Fare Thee Well.” The project showcases an acoustic turn for the band. “Most of our songs start acoustically and we felt these would come across in the most genuine way if we kept them that way,” bassist Robert Robert DeLeo...

Foals’ Hit “The Runner” Gets a Brooding Remix From RÜFÜS DU SOL: Exclusive

English rockers Foals had a hit on their hands with “The Runner” when they dropped it in September. The guitar-driven, vocal-belting ballad has steadily climbed Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart—already reaching the top 40—and with a new official remix from Australia’s RÜFÜS DU SOL, it’ll likely continue its ascent. The alternative electronic trio, who cite Foals as a sonic influence, met...

U2 Can’t Help But Sound Like Themselves on Indian-Inspired New Single “Ahimsa”

It’s been two years since U2 released their 14th studio album Songs of Experience into the world, but the band is back with a new song. Titled “Ahimsa,” the track takes its name from the Sanskrit word for “non-violence” and was written in collaboration with renowned Bollywood composer A.R. Rahman. While U2 is, of course, a politically-motivated rock...

I Miss the Old Kanye Version of DJ Spinn’s “Opioids”

One of the more nuanced responses to Kanye West’s strange appearance last May on TMZ—you know, when he said slavery “sounds like a choice” and defended Donald Trump—came from fellow Chicagoan DJ Spinn, the veteran dance music producer who co-founded the storied footwork collective Teklife with the late DJ Rashad. A few weeks after the...

Haim’s “Hallelujah” Is a Perfect Prayer

Family isn’t just a gimmick for the Haim sisters. The effortless symbiosis between Danielle, Este, and Alana informs their the entire compositional process, from writing, to recording, to performance. “They can break out into three-part harmony truly naturally,” said frequent collaborator Rostam Batmanglij in a 2017 interview with The New York Times. “They don’t think about it. If one of them...
