Little Big Town may have wished they could "Stay All Night" when they visited Jimmy Fallon and performed on the Tonight Show this week, but they certainly made an impression with the time they had. The group, whose newest record, Pain Killer, debuted this week at Number Three on the country albums chart, was......
Armed with a Mercedes Sprinter and some wicked senses of humor, Austin alt-folk outfit Shakey Graves is in the midst of its biggest tour yet in support of their second studio album, And the War Came.

Earlier this morning, while fans logged onto GhostTunes to hear free, 60-second clips of the 14 songs from Garth Brooks' forthcoming Man Against Machine, the singer hosted a more in-depth listening session at the headquarters of his new record label, Sony Music Nashville.  The setting — a renovated chapel that Sony......

A respectful silence settled over the crowd at Microsoft's Washington campus as Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder swapped out a beat-up Fender Stratocaster for a Martin acoustic guitar and steadied himself for the next song. Suddenly, a woman yelled, "I love you!" and a number of other voices echoed the sentiment. "Normally......
Bob Dylan's upcoming covers disc Shadows In The Night is officially slated for a 2015 release, according to an ad inserted into advance copies of Dylan's new The Basement Tapes Complete box set. News of the LP first came in May when Dylan posted a cover of Frank Sinatra's 1945 hit......
If only Tyler Hubbard said, "BK, I believe you have my stapler." Florida Georgia Line pay homage to Office Space in the video for new single "Sun Daze." Opening with Hubbard and Brian Kelley dressed in their nerdy Milton Waddams best, the clip casts the duo as cubicle dwellers in an antiseptic......
It's been 30 years since the paranormal comedy Ghostbusters first possessed the big screen – and to celebrate, audio-visual crew Eclectic Method have paid tribute to that classic film with a jittery remix. Jonny Wilson gives the original theme song a distorted electronic facelift, blending fragments of synths, programmed beats and snippets of......
As a director, Rob Zombie makes horror films that are as loud as his music — dark, grungy, old-school grindhouse movies full of screaming women and buzzing chainsaws. As a fan, however, his taste often runs toward the silent horror of the 1920s: "What I love about these films is they're so......
The second that Flying Lotus announced that his upcoming record would be titled You're Dead!, his fans should have expected something grotesque for Halloween.

In my New York City high school in the late Seventies, the black kids listened to funk and disco, the white kids to Sixties rock and new wave — music that reflected back who we imagined ourselves to be. Then there were the musical theater kids, another race entirely, devoted......
Halloween only rolls around once a year, but that doesn't mean there aren't other occasions — say, a sold-out show in Kansas City, Missouri, during your band's final performance on Keith Urban's Escape Together World Tour — worthy of dressing up in costume and letting your freak flag fly. That's......
David Guetta's next album, Listen, opens with the sound of a piano. Eventually, a drum kit provides the opening track, "Dangerous," with a crisp beat, and the guitar and bass lock into a disco-funk groove; a few minutes later, a string section brings it all to a close. "I wanted to......
Alongside schlocky special effects and franchises with diminishing returns, the 1980s were a killer time for musicians traipsing around in between the bloodbaths of horror flicks. From David Bowie and Deborah Harry in critically acclaimed art creep-outs to heavy metal heroes slumming it in rock & roll nightmares, check out this list of flicks where rock met shock....
LL Cool J's talent was obvious even as a brash 16-year-old. But no amount of phone calls to the nascent Def Jam label — a.k.a. founder Rick Rubin's dorm room in 1984 — was making his hip-hop dreams a reality. Eventually, however, Ad-Rock from the Beastie Boys found his tape and......
Nick Mason truly loves Pink Floyd. The drummer is the only member of the band to play on every single album, and ever since the group went on hiatus in 1994 he's been the one out there promoting the reissues and keeping the flame alive. He's also the only one......
With the Nashville installment of Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways HBO show set to air, the group has shared "Congregation," the raucous, guitar-wailing song it wrote while drawing inspiration from Music City.
