On June 7, “nerdcore” rappers MC Lars and Mega Ran will release a collaborative album titled The Dewey Decibel System. What makes this album and its conception stand out is its focus: literature. Specifically, classic works and authors from literary history, whose stories and themes were turned into hip-hop songs by the two artists. Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare, Henry David Thoreau and more are all represented on the album, which was entirely funded via Kickstarter and has been previewed thus far with a few tracks. “Walden,” an ode to Thoreau and his unique self-imposed detox from the distractions of…

Imagine you’re in Las Vegas having the time of your life with your pals, drinking booze and blasting some classic Van Halen songs in your hotel suite. Maybe “Panama,” perhaps “Jump,” maybe even “Ice Cream Man,” if you’re feeling spontaneous. And then David Lee Roth shows up knocking on your door. Would that be exciting to you, clearly a Van Halen fan? Objectively, this sounds like a VH fan’s dream. But in a video uploaded to Roth’s YouTube channel that’s been circulating on the internet today, this exact scenario played out earlier this month in Vegas … and the young…

The month of June will be LGBT Pride Month in commemoration of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 and to bring awareness to the LGBT community around the world. To celebrate the occasion, indie songwriter/troubadour Sufjan Stevens premiered a pair of new songs on Wednesday, the latest additions to his vast catalog of music. One is titled “Love Yourself”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2ruVe2BYes And the other is “With My Whole Heart”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAcn32Usjy0 The pair of songs will be released on a special 7″ vinyl single on June 28. Also, proceeds from the sale of the tracks will benefit young members of the LGBT and…

On Friday, veteran rockers 311 premiered “Crossfire,” an aggressive, riff-based new song that serves as the first track to their upcoming album, Voyager: Back in April, the band returned with a pair of songs from a new album titled Voyager. One was the pop-oriented “Good Feeling,” conceived with the help of producer John Feldmann: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggMH9vpC60c “Don’t You Worry,” on the other hand, is a space-y, guitar-driven, almost prog-rock-lite composition  featuring some inspirational lyrics from Hexum and Doug “S.A.” Martinez. Showcasing the band’s dynamic songwriting abilities, this one’s more closely linked with their past catalog of music than “Good Feeling.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBHEe7XNytw…

Chris Shiflett is known around the world as the lead guitarist of the Foo Fighters, but he’s much more than just that — he’s a troubadour of sorts, having taken part in a number of projects and bands over the years, both before and during his tenure with Dave Grohl and the guys. His latest project is a solo record, Hard Lessons, which will be released on June 14. It’ll be his fourth solo album. It was previewed already with “Welcome To Your First Heartache”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCVVkGG05Po and “Liar’s Word”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ip9faC6FvwQ And “This Ol’ World”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASbBIuqEpjM More about the record, via…

Late last week, it was announced that David Byrne is taking his American Utopia live show to Broadway for a limited-engagement run at the Hudson Theatre in New York City, running from October into January. The show, an extension of Byrne’s acclaimed, sold-out headlining tour across North America supporting his eclectic 2018 album American Utopia, will no doubt be a must-see. For one, the live show itself as it was performed on the road was incredible, both visually and aesthetically. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1P2U34QrQ8 Touching on songs from throughout Byrne’s career with Talking Heads to his innovative solo career and beyond, the American…

Ten years. That’s how long it’s been since German hard rock/industrial band Rammstein released a new album. Today, the band’s self-titled seventh album (which could very well be their final recorded studio album, if the rumors hold true) was released. At this stage, Rammstein is an institution. You know what you’re getting yourself into when you put on a  Rammstein record — propulsive drum beats, razor guitar riffs occasional synth and the thick, German lyrics delivered by Till Lindemann. And yet, some elements on Rammstein are somewhat surprising. “Radio,” one of its lead singles, captures the synth-rock thing in the…

Elton John and Taron Egerton recorded a song together for Rocketman, the anticipated new Sir Elton biopic hitting theaters on May 31 — and that song was premiered on Thursday. “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” is a duet between Elton John and Taron Egerton — who stars in the film as the younger version of the larger-than-life musician and cultural icon. The song’s an absolute romp, and can be heard below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Lg9ggqsfmg As you’d expect, the song was penned by Elton and Bernie Taupin, and reportedly plays over the film’s end credit sequence. Much of the rest of the film’s soundtrack…

Masked, jump-suited metal ensemble Slipknot debuted two new things on Thursday: The music video for the new single, “Unsainted” and as some brand new masks. It’s all part of the roll out ahead of We Are Not Your Kind, the band’s new album, which will be released on August 9. “Unsainted” features a huge vocal hook from vocalist Corey Taylor, and blends the band’s aggressive, confrontational metal style with a massive chorus. The video’s effectively creepy, as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpATBBRajP8 That clip was directed by M. Shawn Crahan, otherwise known as “Clown” in the band and a founding member of Slipknot.…

The Songs & Stories tour, the new acoustic tour put on by Everclear front man Art Alexakis and pals Max Collins (from Eve 6), John Wozniak (from Marcy Playground) and Chris Collingwood (from Fountains of Wayne) rolled through Southern California last week, stopping at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills on Friday night. The draw for this sort of tour package is quite obviously nostalgia — but for two-plus hours, these singer/songwriters collectively responsible for some of the most ubiquitous ’90s and early 2000s’ alt/rock anthems that still take up residence in your memory decades later put on an endlessly…
