New Music Report: Titus Andronicus

March 17th, 2010
In this week’s New Music Report, Rolling Stone contributing editor Christian Hoard presents another segment of Christian Rock, spotlighting Titus Andronicus’s new album The Monitor. Hoard says the Jersey rockers accomplish a strange feat with a “rare punk-rock album that blends Abraham Lincoln and Bruce Springsteen.” The Monitor is a loose concept album about the Civil War, with portions of speeches by Lincoln and other historical figures interspersed between songs about isolation, alienation and youthful ...

Pixies’ Frank Black Talks Sexy Inspiration for “NonStopErotik”

March 17th, 2010
Photo: Vasquez/Wireimage Pixies frontman Frank Black has released plenty of solo albums over the years, but perhaps nothing as freaky as his forthcoming NonStopErotik, due out on March 30th. The disc — which was co-produced by longtime collaborator Eric Drew Feldman — features some of his most overtly sexual songs, including the swirling ballad “When I Go Down on You” and the snarling, mid-tempo anthem “Lake of Sin.” Rolling Stone caught up with Black to talk ...

Hot Chip Recast as a Boy Band in Clever New “I Feel Better” Video

March 17th, 2010
Hot Chip have established themselves as much for their quirky music videos as their catchy dance pop, so it comes as no surprise that their hilarious vid for One Night Stand’s “I Feel Better” is another must-see entry in their videography. The clip finds the nerdy Hot Chip recast as a boy band and muses whether the Brits’ music would be more popular sales-wise if the members were all male models. Before trotting down the ...
