landscape-1486961822-gettyimages-635008834

Adele just won Album of the year for 25, beating out Justin Bieber's Purpose, Drake's Views, and Beyoncé's Lemonade. The singer, who'd just been on the stage to accept the award for Record of the Year, was overcome with emotion, thanking everyone again, but saying that ultimately she couldn't accept the award because, Beyoncé:

Thank you. Hi, guys. Hi. Hi, everyone. Hi. Hi. Hi. Hi. As you can see, it took an army to make me strong and willing again to do it. And I thank you all from the bottom of...

How Public Access T.V. is Bringing Back New York Cool

%ec%9e%90%ec%bc%9310
Public Access T.V. might just be the saviors of Downtown cool, and they haven’t even released an album. Part new wave, part post-punk with a hefty dose of gritty rock ‘n roll, the band has drawn comparisons to The Strokes’ Is This It. But that’s too easy. With guitarist Xan Aird’s infectious guitars and lead singer John Eatherly’s wailing vocals, heightened by drummer, Pete Sustarsic, and bassist, Max Peebles, Public Access T.V. isn’t at all a Strokes rip-off—and they’re definitely much more than a fleeting buzz band. After two painstaking years, and losing their apartment in the 2015 East Village fire, the boys are finally gearing up to release their debut album, Never Enough, tomorrow. The songs evoke an effortless New York attitude,...

The K-Pop Songs You Need To Hear This Month

Spica’s “Secret Time” video
Despite some major comebacks, like Red Velvet’s grower “Russian Roulette”, the past month has felt strangely flat. Perhaps it’s the seasonal transition, or maybe it’s the run up to Chuseok, Korea’s Thanksgiving, but the entertainment fires have burned a little low recently. Before we get into five tracks you need to know this month, let’s walk through some of the general action coming out of Seoul. Two groups thought to be stuck permanently in the pop basement were revived, but to little fanfare. They included Two X, whose “Over” wasn’t sure what it wanted to be (Trap? Rock? Doo-wop?), and Crayon Pop, whose “Vroom Vroom” was a shrill, frantic attempt to recapture the earlier brilliance of “Bing Bing” and “Dancing Queen”, running after a slighted fanbase who hadn’t been given...

Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but we’ll let you in on a little secret: Miley Cyrus hasn’t walked a red carpet since last December. And she has no plans of doing so in the near, or even distant future. In fact, she’s decided to never walk a red carpet again. Last year, “I had to do the [A Very Murray Christmas] premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again,” she told Elle. “Why, when people are starving, am I on a carpet that’s red? Because I’m ‘important’? Because I’m ‘famous’?” MORE: Here’s Miley Cyrus Pretty Much Naked on the Red Carpet We’re not sure what world hunger has to do with red carpet embargoes, but—sounds like Cyrus is just fed up with...

Premiere: Gothic Tropic Channels Debbie Harry on ’80s Dance Ballad, ‘Don’t Give Me Up’

sdsd
Los Angeles indie darlings, Gothic Tropic, are hard to pin down. The brainchild of songwriterCecilia Della Peruti, the band has experimented with everything from the lo-fi garage rock of their debut EP, Awesome Problems, to the ’80s pop of their latest release, “Don’t Give Me Up.” A lovelorn dance ballad, the single is a catchy mix of ’80s synth-pop with a hint of rock ‘n roll, à la Debbie Harry—with minimal guitars and a subtle synth line, Peruti’s voice is the star. “I wrote it on a long drive while I was out on tour,” says Peruti. “At the time, a friend was going through a breakup and I was inspired by his experience. […] I identified with what he was going...

Nicolas Jaar Returns with 6 Hour Set Streaming ON NTS

nicolas-jaar-2-1140x641
After attempts to save the hallmark of London’s nightlife scene, fabric, were shunned last night, today seems like a dark day for electronic music. Swathes of artists, fans, organisers and those charming Polish elderly ravers were among the many who voiced their support to prevent the closure of the Farringdon nightclub, but it seems all of this – not to mention the petition that garnered nearly 150,000 signatures – still wasn’t enough. A decision as monumental as this is no doubt a harsh blow to UK culture, and to electronic music as a whole. Yet it’s in times like this that we need reminding of why this is an industry, a culture, a community worth celebrating and fighting for – making today a...
