New Reviews: Erykah Badu, Meth Ghost Rae and Usher

March 30th, 2010
Erykah Badu’s New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, the eccentric Dallas soul singer’s follow-up to 2008’s New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War, leads this week’s pack of new releases. While Part One found Badu dipping into electronic sounds, “Part Two revives Badu’s romantic side, and at its best it places her on a sun-splashed day in 1972,” Jody Rosen writes. “On the gorgeous “Window Seat,” [Check out the NSFW video here] her ...

LCD Soundsystem Reveal Cover for May 18th LP “This Is Happening”

March 30th, 2010
Just when we were growing fond of calling LCD Soundsystem’s upcoming album “TBA,” James Murphy and Co. revealed today on their DFA Records site that the band’s third album will have a proper title, This Is Happening. Accompanying news of the title was Murphy’s Twitter announcement, “Well, we finally made a cover…,” which is that sideways portrait up top of Murphy dancing. The cover image features a stylistic motif reminiscent of David Bowie’s Lodger, and ...

Strokes, Libertines In Demand: Has 2000s Nostalgia Already Begun?

March 30th, 2010
Photo: Winter/ImageDirect (Strokes), Allan/WireImage (Libertines) The announcement that the Libertines are reforming for U.K. gigs this summer got us thinking: is the world already nostalgic for the music of the 2000s? We realize we’re not even four months into this new decade, but the evidence seems to be there — especially when you consider that the Strokes are also returning for big shows this summer. “Should I say the truth [about why we're playing gigs?],” ...

Is Bob Dylan Hip-Hop’s Godfather? His Ties to Beasties, Roots, More

March 30th, 2010
Photo: Michael Ochs Archive/GettyRecently, a YouTube made the rounds of Bob Dylan raspily rapping his way through a solid chunk of LL Cool J’s classic “Mama Said Knock You Out.” The Internet had good time with “LOL” and “WTF” responses, but Dylan’s symbiotic relationship with hip-hop actually runs fairly deep. Hip-hop and Dylan were both gestated in New York, distrust the government, aren’t fond of using their birth names, and have a pretty evocative way ...

March 30th, 2010
Weezer unveiled the clip for “I’m Your Daddy,” the latest single from Raditude, on MySpace Music and Weezer.com today. While Rivers Cuomo and gang have relied on YouTube all-stars, doppelgangers and Muppets in the past, “I’m Your Daddy” finds just Weezer themselves rocking out onstage and hanging out backstage in handheld footage and fan animation. “The video features a dense attack of classic Weezer moments from the last year of touring and other activity, culled from ...

Alternate Take: New Progressive Rockers Starless and Bible Black

March 30th, 2010
Read David Fricke on King Crimson here: Alternate Take: King Crimson’s Royal Remix Treatment. Starless and Bible Black take their name from a 1974 Crimson album. But this British quintet cast their own haunting net on their second album, Shape of the Shape (Locust), from smoky electronics and spectral-country guitar to English acid folk. Singer Hélène Gautier channels Sandy Denny as a Raymond Chandler femme fatale in “Radio Blues” and hovers through “Country Heir” like a ...

Eminem Hints at “Big News”: Is “Relapse 2 ” Finally On the Way?

March 30th, 2010
Photo: Winter/Getty Just over a year ago, Eminem revealed his comeback plans with the announcement of two albums set for 2009, Relapse and Relapse 2.

However, Eminem made a rare appearance on Twitter yesterday to give fans a message — “Don’t worry. Some big news ...
