Catching Up With 'The Voice's' Eliminated Artists (Week 3)

May 31st, 2011 3:00pm EDT
The Voice
It's that time again: before tonight's new episode of NBC's The Voice, I sat down with last week's eliminated artists to give you the dish. This week, the show said goodbye and I said hello to Kelsey Rey (Team Cee Lo), Rebecca Loebe (Team Adam) and Julia Eason (Team Christina). (Team Blake's Serabee, also cut, was unable to participate.) Here's what Kelsey, Rebecca and Julia had to say about their time on The Voice...

Arcade Fire Get Arty For Coachella

April 17th, 2011 3:03pm EDT
Arcade Fire
Canadian rockers Arcade Fire gave fans something to talk about during their set at the Coachella festival in California by teaming up with an experimental art group to create a bizarre stage show.

The group took to the stage to headline the second night of the Indio, California event on Saturday and they made it a performance to remember by putting together an onstage art installation with members of The Creators Project group.

A large crane held a dark-coloured box the same size as the stage in the air for most of the show and it was gradually raised up until hundreds of balloon-like lan...

Radiohead To Launch Their Own Newspaper

March 25th, 2011 8:05pm EDT
British rockers Radiohead are launching their own newspaper to mark the CD release of their new album The King Of Limbs.

The Creep hit-makers launched their eighth studio record online in February and the disc version is set to hit stores later this month - so they have created their own publication to celebrate.

The newspaper, titled The Universal Sigh, will be distributed for free around the world and will also boast its own website.

The band has yet to reveal the nature of the newspaper's content, but a statement posted on the new site reads, "To commemorate this momentous occasion...

Radiohead - 'The King of Limbs' Review

February 22nd, 2011 10:18am EST
Released a day before it was officially supposed to street, Radiohead and brainchild Thom Yorke have found another way to essentially dupe the masses with their latest, and eighth, studio long player, the King of Limbs. Perhaps Radiohead is just having fun with their followers with the way they have gone about releasing recent records (see the ‘pay what you want’ release of 2007’s In Rainbows), or perhaps Yorke and his band of merry men are just bored, but either way, Radiohead seems to have again pushed the envelope when it comes to the art of releasing albums.

The King of Limbs is ...

Radiohead Scrapping New Album?

September 26th, 2010 7:45pm EDT
British rockers Radiohead are meeting on Monday to discuss whether they should "throw out" their new album and start again because they aren't completely happy with their new material.

The "Creep" hitmakers have spent the last year working on a follow-up to 2007's "In Rainbows," but drummer Philip Selway admits the group is unsure whether to release the new songs or ditch them all and start recording again from scratch.

And the band will meet up next week to discuss the issue.

Selway says, "We've been working on material on and off for a year now and we've had the summer off so yes, we'r...

April 7th, 2010 2:46pm EDT
Thom Yorke rocked on at his New York City show on Tuesday night despite a dangerous explosion near the concert venue that shut down several Broadway shows.

A manhole exploded in Times Square, prompting police to block off an area around Roseland Ballroom, where the Radiohead frontman was booked to play with his side project, Atoms for Peace.

Evening performances of Broadway shows including hit musical Jersey Boys had to be cancelled - but Yorke managed to get clearance for his concert and took to the stage with the supergroup, which features Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, longtime Ra...

The rockers will play at Hollywood's Henry Fonda Theater on Sunday night. Tickets went on sale on Thursday via an auction on the group's official website.

Rockers from bands including Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Snow Patrol have teamed up to help prevent any more bloodshed in Sudan.

The 25 Most Important Albums Of The Decade

December 23rd, 2009 11:43am EST
Most Important Albums of the Decade
Pitchfork and Rolling Stone and Spin and all those other outlets have their lists of the best albums of the decade, and you know what? I'm going to let them. There's no point in me trying to come up with that list because there were so many great records to choose from. Who's to say that The Strokes' Is This It? was better than Muse's Absolution or any album by Arcade Fire? You can't! You can't! Best albums are invariably marked by an editor's (or staff's) preference in music. But what about qualifying the most important? I can tell you that Bob Dylan's Modern Times was probably the best re...

Ten Greatest Albums of the Decade
So far, we've brought you the Greatest TV Shows and Greatest Songs of the decade. Now it's time to look at what may be a dying breed. With the advent of the ability to download singles off the Internet individually, and the massive popularity of the iPod - it's no longer necessary to buy an entire album in order to hear the one or two songs you'd really like to own. Because of that, it may no longer be necessary for artists to create albums, or even sign record deals. This could be the last decade the album is a dominant artform. With that in mind - here are the Ten Greatest Albums of t...

Jamie Foxx Spouts Tirade Against Miley Cyrus

April 14th, 2009 11:42am EDT
Jamie Foxx
Jamie Foxx has launched a blistering attack on Miley Cyrus - telling the teen star to "make a sex tape and grow up".

The singer/actor took to his weekly radio show The Foxxhole at the weekend to slam Cyrus over her recent bust-up with rockers Radiohead.

Cyrus had vowed to "ruin" the British group last month after frontman Thom Yorke snubbed her at the Grammy Awards in February.

And Foxx has angrily hit out at the Disney sensation for making the comments - telling the 16-year-old Hannah Montana actress to get a gum transplant, adding:

"Do some heroin... get some crack in...

Michael Jackson Album Still 'Thrills'

April 9th, 2009 9:19am EDT
Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson's classic Thriller album has been voted the greatest record of all time. The poll, organized by MTV, places the 1982 hit in first place - seeing off competition from Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction in third place, Radiohead's OK Computer at four and Nirvana's Nevermind coming in fifth.

The biggest shock in the survey of 40,000 fans was the placing of lesser-known British singer Craig David at number two with his 2001 album Born To Do it. The surprising entry has led to fears that MTV bosses could have once again fallen victim to the 'Rickrolling' phenomenon.

Rockville CA
The new web-series "Rockville, CA" is the brainchild of Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Chuck & Gossip Girl).

Each 4-6 minute episode also features performances by such indie bands as Lykke Li, The Kooks and Anya Marina.

Thom Yorke
Radiohead star Thom Yorke has continued music's oddest feud with Miley Cyrus after blasting her for threatening to "ruin" his band.

Cyrus revealed she had made it her mission to "ruin" Radiohead after frontman Yorke snubbed her at the Grammy Awards last month.

The Hannah Montana star requested a meeting with her favorite band when she discovered their dressing room was four away from hers, but Yorke politely declined because he was preparing himself for his first performance at the music Oscars.

In a radio interview last week, Cyrus said, "My manager asked and said, you know,...

The Hannah Montana star requested a meeting with her favorite band when she discovered their dressing room was four away from hers backstage at the Grammys. But Yorke politely declined because he was preparing himself for his first performance at the music Oscars.

Kanye West
TV producers have been forced to heavily edit a forthcoming Kanye West documentary after the rapper allegedly ranted about Radiohead and defended embattled singer Chris Brown during filming.

The outspoken rapper was especially candid while recording an episode of the VH1 show Storytellers - which features artists discussing the meaning behind their songs - in Los Angeles on February 13th.

He was said to have told the audience he was "hurt" when Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke supposedly snubbed him at this year's Grammy Awards. West explained: "So when he (Yorke) performed at the ...

Pandora: A Great Way To Discover New Music

February 26th, 2009 12:36pm EST
Like a good Vegas stand, I'm all in. This past week I was introduced to a nifty little website called Pandora. It is in a nutshell your iTunes player on shuffle but with extra cool songs worth discovering thrown in here and there (or everywhere if you're musically green). Right now it's kicking the butt of my radio and internet radio, and I'm wondering if this new avenue will make purchasing mp3s obsolete.

First, how it works: when you go to the site, it asks you to pick an artist you like. I started with Radiohead. What it then does is configure a playlist based on Radiohead an...
