Google Announces Song Search With LaLa, MySpace Partnerships

October 28th, 2009
In an attempt to tap into the digital-music market dominated by iTunes, Google today unveiled a new song-searching system that will allow users to quickly stream a free track using LaLa or MySpace Music. Both Google and the record business hope the simple-to-use form of music search dissuades users from typing in, say, “Beyoncé” and “torrent” and turning up thousands of illegal song-download results. “The best way to address that [torrent-searching] situation is to provide ...

Lil Wayne Turns Out Otherworldly Rhymes on Leaked “No Ceilings”

October 28th, 2009
Photo: Martingdale/WireImage Lil Wayne’s new mixtape No Ceilings has hit the Web four days before its planned Halloween release — and less than a week after Tha Carter III rapper pleaded guilty to gun charges in New York City. With a prison sentence looming, rhymes like “T.I., hold your head” in the opener “Swag Surfin’ ” feel pretty weighty. But overall, it’s a stellar mixtape that features Wayne rapping over beats from some of the biggest ...

Fricke’s Picks: The Icelandic Beck

October 28th, 2009
Sin Fang Bous is one guy from Iceland, Sindri Már Sigfússon, who makes the seductive small-combo pop on Clangour (Morr Music). The close-up vocals, austere overdubs and beach-angel harmonies suggest Beck’s Sea Change with laptops and a light coat of frost. Sigfússon tours here in October and November, so you can see how he does it live.

New Music Report: Basement Jaxx

October 28th, 2009
The “Christian Rock” pick in this week’s New Music Report (contributing editor Christian Hoard’s current fave) is Scars, the fifth album from British house duo Basement Jaxx. The group’s 2001 album Rooty featured the hit “Romeo,” which charted in the States thanks to its synthetic yet warm vibe, and Scars is their best album since then. All the tracks are all sung by guest vocalists including Santigold and Kelis, as well as smaller names like ...

Adam Lambert Defends Album Cover as “Deliberately Campy”

October 28th, 2009
Photo: Mayer/WireImage Reaction to Adam Lambert’s debut album cover has certainly been strong. Some fans have pledged their allegiance to the American Idol alum’s glamtastic artwork on For Your Entertainment, while others have slammed it as more than a tad over-the-top (the phrase “space alien from Planet Fierce” has come up — on both sides). Lambert himself weighed in on his Twitter today to explain the thinking behind the glowing, spacey cover: “Thank you to ...

Breaking: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

October 28th, 2009
Who: Before this rising New York indie-pop quartet played a note together, they had a band name, a MySpace page and some shared tastes: “We loved loud, sort of enthusiastic, life-affirming pop like Yo La Tengo and Smashing Pumpkins,” says frontman and songwriter Kip Berman, “where there’s big guitars and everything’s right in the world.” Sounds Like: February’s debut disc and the just-released Higher Than the Stars EP are dreamy and shimmery, with plenty of guitar ...
