After first performing together on stage at Coachella in April, Phoenix and R&B hitmaker R. Kelly have unveiled their second collaboration (but their first on record) — a remix of the French band’s “Trying To Be Cool,” off their latest album Bankrupt!.
While a collaboration between the two doesn’t sound natural on paper, Kelly’s soulful… More »
The most talked-about moment of Coachella back in April was R. Kelly’s cameo during Phoenix’s headlining set (it was so buzzworthy partly because everyone thought it would be Daft Punk joining the band, not the R&B singer). And now the two acts are going to collaborate on wax, for a remix of Phoenix’s “Trying To… More »
The iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas is heading into its third year, and the fest has rightly earned its reputation for having the biggest pop talent, like, ever: The just-announced line-up features an absurd roster of performers, including Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry on the main stage with Miley Cyrus and Avril Lavigne in the adjacent iHeartRadio Music Festival Village, which will feature… More »
The official lineup for Coachella 2013 is here. Rejoice! After teasing us with an “artsy” trailer earlier this week (which revealed zilch about this year’s musical acts) the music and art festival finally gave the Internet what it had been waiting for: the annual poster reveal. Those who mistook this photo of a rock in the… More »
It’s a great time to be a Daft Punk fan. The electronic duo have popped up as producers, appeared on highly anticipated movie soundtracks and ambitious Adidas commercials, and last night at Madison Square Garden, the French DJs — who haven’t performed live since their 2007 Alive tour — helped their buddies in Phoenix close… More »
Okay, so we have the Lollapalooza lineup pretty much figured out, or at least the top six acts booked at the fest. The Chicago music festival’s website has been playing a Wheel of Fortune-style game, revealing their lineup one letter at a time. Bonnaroo teased fans in a similar way on their MySpace page back… More »
It’s been quite the high profile week for The-Dream. Not only did a wedding photo of the hit-making songwriter-producer and Christina Milian just surface, his Love vs. Money was also singled out in Time’s picks for the top albums of the year. Hopefully this calms him down after his recent Grammy snub.

Following this morning’s post featuring Paramore covering Kings Of Leon, here are the Tennessee pop-punkers covering Phoenix’s 2006 track “Long Distance Call” in London. Apparently the band had just learned this track for an upcoming appearance in France; I like its nervous energy, although I think as far as Paramore covers that I’ve found today… More »
For Phoenix’s video for the pretty catchy single “Lizstomania” the band… visited a Franz Lizst museum and filmed it. Then, they performed and filmed it. Um, and then I guess someone edited the footage together. And that’s it. Huh. Excitement, she wrote! They do have this nifty personalized-zeppelin thing they carry around with them, and,… More »
The standard format for any blog post recapping the musical guests from Saturday Night Live is to say how bad the mixing was and that the sketches were awful, and certainly Seth Rogen’s rough time playing any character that isn’t largely just like Seth Rogen and one of my least favorite tracks from The Lonely… More »
