BOB DYLAN‘S TEMPEST IS SLATED FOR A SEPT. 11 RELEASE
The Bard with a guitar (but not that guitar) returns this fall with a 35 studio album meant to mark the 50th anniversary of the day his self-titled debut hit shelves. To call this an accomplishment would be an understatement. [ArtsBeat]
COACHELLA SHIPS OUT
The promoters behind Coachella are looking out to sea for their next project: floating festivals. Music has long been an important part of cruises, but this seems like a huge undertaking. How long will it take Urban Outfitters to make 2,800 life preservers? [LAT]
Death Cab For Cutie took to the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live and it was a resounding “Awww, big cuddle!” from us to the newly single Ben Gibbard (give us a call, yeah?). From their latest album Codes And Keys, Death Cab played “You Are A Tourist” (above) and “Underneath the Sycamore” (after the jump). In the truest, most emotionally sentimental yet frank lyricism that Death Cab has adopted as their niche, “You Are A Tourist” has all the floating whimsy and grand cavernousness of “Expo 86″ and “Marching Bands Of Manhattan.” With a certain soaring hopefulness beset with often gnarly or despairing lyrics, Death Cab have the Robyn thing (happy sadness) down pat.
On last night’s episode of The X Factor, 13-year-old schoolchild sensation Rachel Crow tore the house down with her performance of Etta James‘ “I’d Rather Go Blind.” It inspired an interesting contrast in the judges’s reactions; Simon Cowell looked like a giddy school boy the entire way through the epic performance—the only time you ever see him smile like this is when he knows he’s found himself a cash cow—while Nicole Scherzinger looked as if she might lose it at any moment. We’re with Simon though — Crow’s performance was breathtakingly spectacular, and we’re thinking the girl might be a serious contender for top spot. So, with that in mind, we’re officially adding Rachel Crow to our list of reasons why The X Factor is better than Idol (especially if she promises to change her shoes!).
As Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s Watch The Throne tour kicks off this week, there’s really not all that much else to talk about. Between set lists, leather outfits, copious bling and “OMG WILL PREGONCÉ OR FRANK OCEAN OR BOTH MAKE AN APPEARANCE?”, it’s a truly immersive experience, permeating all facets of daily life and conversation. So while we wait very impatiently for our turn to Watch The Throne, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite collaboration albums of all-time.
Nearly half a year since the band’s highly ambitious single-take “You Are A Tourist” (and four months since their appearance on Storytellers), Death Cab For Cutie are back with another single?Codes and Keys closer “Stay Young, Go Dancing.” When the band performed the song on Storytellers, frontman Ben Gibbard quipped, “I think as a relatively recently married [to Zooey Deschanel, no less] man, I’m allowed one love song.” The Claire Carre-directed, Rob Reiner-meets-Benjamin Button clip that premiered yesterday certainly fits the bill, as an older couple dances barefoot in the grass and reminisces on a life of love and dancing together.
As we parallel park into July and officially hit the curb of this year’s halfway point, it’s time to take a quick look back at what the past six months have taught us. Not conventional life lessons, however; we’re talking about stuff that’s a little bit less intense and also involves YOU! That’s right, in the first installment of our Top 100 Videos of 2011… So Far, we’re spilling the beans on the #100-51 most clicked-and-viewed videos on VH1.com. You’ll see that this pi?ata-like list of content contains tasty treats and slippery surprises alike! We’ve got brand-new videos that just recently launched, some VH1 Classic leaning clips (hey there, Megadeth), repeat offenders, and of course, effervescent, essential vids from the music video cannon. So take a look at the first fifty videos below and don’t forget to come back later this week as we continue on our quest to discover what artist snags the #1 spot!
Break In Notorious B.I.G. Murder Case: Confessed Accessory After the Fact Gives Testimony
Less than a month after an alleged confession by an accessory to the 1994 gun violence against Tupac Shakur, Clayton Hill, a former member of the Nation of Islam, has confessed to helping dispose of the handgun used to murder the Notorious B.I.G. in 1997. He implicates a member of the Nation of Islam whom he only knew by a pseudonym and could not positively identify when shown photographs of the prime suspect. Hill told HipHop DX that all of this information was revealed to federal investigators in October 2010 in exchange for a reduced sentence for his wife (so she could raise their daughter). He also notes that it will be included in his forthcoming e-book, Diary of an Ex-Terrorist. [HipHop DX]
A New Alleged Kelly Clarkson Demo Leaked!
The swiftness with which uploads are getting taken down suggests it might actually be a track slated to appear on her upcoming album. It’s called “Let Me Down.” Good luck finding a stream before the Web Sheriff does. [Popdust] Read more…
