Hear Sean Lennon’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead”

November 4th, 2009
Sean Lennon’s latest album is a bit of a departure from 2006’s poppy Friendly Fire: it’s the largely orchestral soundtrack to vampire comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead, directed by the musician’s friend Jordan Galland. The film — which stars Dustin Hoffman’s son Jake along with Devon Aoki and John Ventimiglia — has hit the festival circuit, and we have the soundtrack (which is in stores now) right here.

Photo: Giovanni Rufino/the CW In just over a week Gossip Girl will go Gaga when the singer performs a special rendition of her new single “Bad Romance” on the November 16th episode, fittingly titled “The Last Days of Disco Stick.” “She was amazing,” one of the show’s executive producers, Stephanie Savage, tells Rolling Stone. “She was willing to stay on set and perform silently in the background of all of our shots so that she could ...

Judge Rules Surviving Members of Sublime Cannot Use Band Name

November 4th, 2009
Photo: Eichner/WireImage According to the courts, the Sublime that performed at California’s SmokeOut festival last week was not actually Sublime. A California judge has instructed the surviving members of the ’90s band, Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh, that they cannot use the name Sublime for their group with new singer Rome for any additional live appearances, merchandise or similarly named Internet domain names. The band’s We Are Sublime Website has since been replaced with a ...

No Doubt Sue Activision Over Use of “Band Hero” Avatars

November 4th, 2009
Photo: Winter/Getty In September, Nirvana fans were shocked to learn that the Kurt Cobain avatar in Guitar Hero 5 could be used to sing any other song on the game’s track list, from Bon Jovi to Bush. Now No Doubt have made a similar discovery about their own avatars in Band Hero — and they’re taking swift legal action. The band filed a lawsuit against the game’s maker, Activision, today, for fraudulent inducement and breach of ...

New Music Report: Devendra Banhart, Plus Nirvana

November 4th, 2009
L.A. singer-songwriter Devendra Banhart has been saddled with responsibility for spearheading the freak-folk movement, but with each of his six albums that term has become an increasingly irrelevant way to describe his sound. Rolling Stone’s Kevin O’Donnell says that’s the case again on Banhart’s latest LP, What Will We Be, an eclectic LP that dips into lots of classic rock styles. He even warbles in a baritone that’s eerily reminiscent of Jim Morrison on “Rats.” Next ...

Foo Fighters’ Grohl Says Greatest Hits Feels Like “An Obituary”

November 4th, 2009
Photo: Busacca/Getty When is the right time to release a greatest-hits record? After news broke that Britney Spears would be releasing a retrospective this fall — the 27-year-old’s third hits disc — and that Foo Fighters and Fall Out Boy would be doing the same, fans began arguing the point. Now the Foos’ own Dave Grohl has weighed in on the debate, telling the BBC that collections often feel like “an obituary.” Though the Foo Fighters’ ...

Breaking: La Roux

November 4th, 2009
Who The U.K. synth-pop sensation — it’s scored two Top Five hits in England — consists of striking androgynous singer Elly Jackson and behind-the-scenes beatmaker Ben Langmaid (he refuses to be interviewed or photographed and doesn’t perform live). But Jackson is used to being the center of attention, for her hair — a red, Woody Woodpecker-style pouf — and her piercing voice. Says Jackson, “It’s a massively powerful instrument.” Sounds Like Inspired by Eighties ...

Taylor Swift Tells “SNL” “I Want to Look Nothing Like Myself”

November 4th, 2009
Photo: Winter/Getty When SNL returns from a few weeks off this coming Saturday night, Taylor Swift will be pulling double duty as both host and musical guest. Only a handful of stars have managed that heavy load in the past — notably Britney Spears, who was the youngest host in the show’s history to do so in 2000 at age 18 (Swift is 19). The most recent triple-threat to pull it off was Justin Timberlake — ...
