Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Liars To Gorillaz

I Love Liars. And I’m not talking about the all the sweet-talking men who’ve done me wrong. This time, I’m talking about my fave band in the world, Liars, the ruling triumvirate of all that is awesome. They manage to do the improbable — create existential noise rock that is relatable and awkward sonic love that’ll spin you right round. You might remember them from the heart-melting “Houseclouds” vid where kitties go crazy for them. Well, today, they unleash their fifth record, Sisterworld and, girl, it kicks off a new release Tuesday more stacked with juicy radness than a big ol’ booty! Gorillaz goes bananas; super group Broken Bells busts out; Black Rebel Motorcycle Club adds some vroom; Frightened Rabbit is scary good; Ludacris is back on the badonkadonk trail … and that’s just the half of it. So let’s get into the groove, after the jump.

The Dead Man’s Bones Documentary Makes Me Tingle

I just love starting off my day with a serious Ryan Gosling-induced girl boner. Pitchfork.com has a portion of a documentary about Gosling’s super awesome creepster doo-wop band, Dead Man’s Bones, in which my lover conducts a children’s chorus in rehearsal and on stage. While plenty of actors turned rock stars SUCK, I can say with unbiased appreciation that Dead Man’s Bones RULES super hard. Keep reading »

Carly Simon Answers The Who’s “So Vain” Riddle

Fans can finally stop speculating, because Carly Simon finally revealed who inspired her hit song “You’re So Vain” in an acoustic version that’s on her upcoming album, Never Been Gone. And it’s not a former lover, like Warren Beatty or Mick Jagger, as you’d expect. Surprisingly, record label executive David Geffen was the inspiration. Geffen was at the helm of Elektra Records when Simon was on that label, and the lyrics could hint at Simon’s anger over Geffen’s choice to focus more on another singer-songwriter, Joni Mitchell.
