How Did Mumford & Sons New Album Perform?

5/14/2015 10:09am EDT
Mumford & Sons Take ‘Wilder Mind’ To No. 1 On Billboard
Unsurprisingly, Mumford & Sons cruised to a career second #1 album with Wilder Mind. Despite retooling their banjo-heavy style, plenty of people still joined the British band’s party – 249,000 to be exact, with most of those equating to copies sold. Go back three years earlier when Babel and mad banjo were still thriving, and the numbers were loftier to the tune of 600,000. Still, given the new normal of album sales and a new way to calculate the overall impact of an album, Mumford & Sons performed well.

It wasn’t all about Wilder Mind contrary to popular belief (or the majority of s...

New Album Releases To Check Out This Week

5/5/2015 11:19am EDT
Mumford & Sons Leads Albums To Check Out
April was a slower month for new album releases across the board. It wasn’t quite like “watching paint dry,” but there was an absence of blockbuster releases with staying power. A perfect example of the lack of staying power – Shawn Mendes’ Handwritten debuted at #1 and proceeded to fall to #17 the following week. May is much more promising from the jump, as there are many notable releases dropping on an off-cycle May 4 (Monday) release date. Leading the charge is Mumford & Sons, but they are by no means the sole attraction this week.

Phish, My Morning Jacket, Gov't Mule Play Tributes For Lou Reed

Trey Anastasio
The song may have been in the band's repertoire since Halloween of 1998, but on Sunday night Phish opened their show at Hartford, Connecticut's XL Center with a bittersweet, yet rousing rendition of the Velvet Underground's "Rock & Roll" in tribute to late music legend Lou Reed.

Reed passed away earlier in the day due to complications stemming from a liver transplant he had back in May.

Following the eleven-and-a-half-minute epic, frontman Trey Anastasio asked the crowd for a moment of silence for "one of the greatest artists who's ever lived."

Prior to the show Anastasio posted a tribut...

Zack De La Rocha
Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack De La Rocha is planning a series of concerts to protest Arizona's controversial state immigration laws.

My Morning Jacket
What can I say? I'm a sucker for the Grammys and the Oscars, and after a few years of real yawners, the Grammys in particular are back with a vengeance! The performances lineup is Coachella-esque impressive, with U2 and Coldplay joining the likes of Jonas Brothers, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne(!), Paul McCartney(!!) and Radiohead(!!!).

Cameron Crowe Presents the Elizabethtown Soundtrack

Perhaps more than any other contemporary storyteller, Cameron Crowe is known for the unique and powerful way he weaves music and narrative together in his films. This has never been more true than in Crowe's upcoming Paramount Pictures film 'Elizabethtown,' opening nationwide October 14.

The songs audiences hear in the theater or on the 'Elizabethtown' soundtrack - available on RCA Records - are but one side of the film's multi-layered musical story. While the soundtrack itself features newly recorded tunes by the likes of Tom Petty, Lindsey Buckingham, My Morning Jacket and previousl...
