UPDATE: The Flaming Lips and Florence + the Machine too

Kurt Vile

As Kurt Vile just revealed on his Instagram, he was an answer on the Jeopardy! College Championship tonight. (Seriously.) Apparently, none of them got it right:

UPDATE: The Flaming Lips were too. It said: "In 2015 Miley Cyrus toured with these indie darlings who sound like their mouths are on fire." See Wayne Coyne's Instagram of it below. Florence + the Machine were too (but we haven't seen the question yet).

It wouldn't be the first time indie rock was on Jeopardy!.

FADER

Like last year, The FADER have listed their favorite tracks of the year. They picked 107, "because 100 just wasn't enough." It's got two Drake songs in the top 10, and a Skepta song cracks it too (grime in general is pretty well-represented). A certain former bubblegum pop singer who's becoming a popular choice for #1 is #1 here too. Mixed into the mostly rap/R&B/electronic pop list is Adele, some country representation from Chris Stapleton and Kacey Musgraves, lo-fi DIY from Sheer Mag and Girlpool, and a few other outliers. Check out the whole list, and a Spotify playlist of it, below.

NPR

The year-end lists keep coming. Today, NPR Music published their 50 Favorite Albums of 2015 list. As usual, it's all over the map genre-wise, with classical, jazz, electronic, rap, mainstream pop, lo-fi DIY, indie rock, folk, country, metal and more.

It's got some of the albums that appear on most of these lists, like Kendrick Lamar, Sufjan Stevens, Courtney Barnett, Jamie xx, Future, Vince Staples, Joanna Newsom and Alabama Shakes, but plenty of surprises too. It's the first list I've seen with the Beauty Pill album, and the first non-rap list I've seen with The Game. It's also got often-underrated albums from Colleen, Jazmine Sullivan and Low. And there's bound to be something on it you haven't heard yet.

Read their commentary here and check out the full list below...

Rolling Stone

We already saw Rolling Stone's top 50 albums of 2015, and now they unveiled their top 50 songs too. It's got a lot of the songs you couldn't avoid this year even if you wanted to: "Hello," "Hotline Bling," "Trap Queen," plenty of The Weeknd, one appearance by Justin Bieber. There's also indie rock anthems like Titus Andronicus' "Dimed Out," "Kurt Vile's "Pretty Pimpin," Courtney Barnett's "Pedestrian at Best"and Tame Impala's "Let It Happen," a nod towards raw DIY with Sheer Mag's "Fan the Flames," and a lot more. Check the whole thing out below.

NME

It's the season for year-end lists, and they just keep rolling in. Now longrunning (and now free) UK weekly NME has joined the party, going with Grimes' Art Angels at #1 on their top 50 albums of 2015 list (she also topped Gorilla vs. Bear' and SPIN's lists). Kendrick Lamar comes in at #2, and those two records are really topping a lot of lists this year. Elsewhere on the list, you can find indie stalwarts like Bjork, Sufjan Stevens, Joanna Newsom, Deerhunter, and Sleater-Kinney, pop nods like Future, Lana Del Rey, Charli XCX, Carly Rae Jepsen and Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz, and an emphasis on British acts like Foals, The Maccabees, Coldplay, Sleaford Mods, Bill Ryder-Jones, Laura Marling, The Cribs, and of course Blur. For good measure, Ryan Adams comes in at #50 with his Taylor Swift covers album.

Check out the full list below...

Adele

Rolling Stone has published their list of the Top 50 Albums of 2015. As always, it has older artists who don't seem to pop up on many other lists (Madonna, Darlene Love, Mark Knopfler, Boz Scaggs, Keith Richards, James Taylor, Don Henley) (did you even know Don Henley released an album this year?). There's also two major rap albums in the top 3 (with Adele sandwiched in between), a good amount of country (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Ashley Monroe), smaller indie rock bands (Hop Along, Car Seat Headrest), mainstream pop (Selena Gomez, Carly Rae Jepsen), alt-rock giants (Muse, Marilyn Manson), and a lot more. And they're counting D'Angelo's December 2014 release for this list (it cracks the top 5).

Q

British music mag Q just put out their latest issue which has Coldplay on the cover and also includes their Top 50 Albums of 2015 list (not including the new Coldplay album, which isn't out yet). It's got a lot of the bands that the UK press tends to favor more than the American press (Palma Violets, Wolf Alice, Years & Years, Slaves, Everything Everything), tons of the stuff we'll probably see on most lists (Tame Impala, Sufjan Stevens, Kendrick Lamar, Courtney Barnett), and a few surprises.

Taking one of her few moments to stand still at centerstage as her 10 fellow band-members sonically introduced themselves, Welch's hands orchestrated their sound. Long, thin fingers climbed the space around her, and she fell into "What the Water Gave Me," a track from the 2011 release "Ceremonials."

Swiftly unleashing herself from the stillness, Welch burned a path from stage-left to stage-right, bewitching the front rows with a tambourine held high.

"Hello Voodoo Festival," she called. "We are Florence and the Machine. Thank you so much for having us. Now, we would have liked to have a choir with us, but it turned out they were all ghosts and went back home. So, I was wondering if you'd be our choir this evening? Can we sing this one together?" - [Nola.com]

Heavy rain and wind wreaked havoc on New Orleans' Voodoo Fest on Halloween Weekend, but Friday's kickoff day (10/30) went off fine, with a headlining set from Florence + the Machine where any dramatic weather system seemed part of her theatrical performance. The holiday weekend meant lots of folks were dressed up -- both on stage and off -- and acts like Metric and Florence got into the Halloween spirit. Some, like Modest Mouse, were business as usual, attire-wise. Other performers Friday included Joey Bada$$, Jason Isbell, My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, and more.

Gerard also stopped by the Toyota Music Den, which BrooklynVegan helped curate along with SPIN and Stereogum, as did The Joy Formidable and Wax Motif.

We'll have pictures from Day 2 of Voodoo fest up soon. (Sunday was rained out.) More pics from Friday, below...

Very little of what I remember happened after this point. #kanyewest #justinvernon

The huge 2015 Glastonbury Festival went down over the weekend, and it was full of surprises. Bon Iver's Justin Vernon showed up twice, once during Kanye West's set and another time during The Staves. A guest came out during Patti Smith's set too, but not a musical one: it was the Dalai Lama. Though the Foo Fighters had to drop off due to Dave Grohl's broken leg, Florence and the Machine took over their headlining set and covered "Times Like These" as a tribute to them. (Much like The Killers did for Kings of Leon at Firefly the previous weekend, after lightning cancelled the latter's set.) The Libertines showed up to play a surprise set. And Lionel Richie played a hits-filled set to a huge crowd, stretching from Commodores faves like "Brick House" to "Dancing on the Ceiling" and "All Night Long."


Oo what a feeling, when we're dancing on the ceiling #lionelritchie #glastonbury

On Justin Vernon's appearance with Kanye, NME writes:

A pink flare lit up the sky above thousands of fans as acoustic guitars marked the introduction of 'FourFiveSeconds', and the lack of both Paul McCartney and Rihanna for that song suggested that there would be no guests during the set, but Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) was revealed to be providing backing vocals when smoke cleared during 'Lost In America' and 'Can't Hold My Liquor'. Vernon, dressed in black t-shirt and baseball cap with headphones on, was introduced by West as "one of the baddest white boys on the planet."
'Ye also led the crowd in a singalong of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and then called himself the "greatest living rock star" on the planet during his set, which The Who mocked during theirs. He also had some pretty hilarious subtitles of his lyrics on screen during BBC's broadcast of the festival:

As for Justin Vernon's appearance with UK folk pop band The Staves, he came out to sing "Make It Holy" off their 2014 album, If I Was, which he recorded and produced at his April Base Studios in Eau Claire. Watch a video of that, and a video of Kanye's full set (via Nah Right) below.



Part of Patti Smith's reason for bringing out the Dalai Lama was his 80th birthday. NME writes:

"We are grateful to him for all his love of humanity and making people aware of the importance of saving the planet," she said, before reading a poem she had written for him. Glastonbury's Emily Eavis then bought The Dalai Lama onto the stage to huge cheers from the crowd. "I think it would be nice if Glastonbury wished The Dalai Lama a happy birthday," said Smith, before leading the audience in a rousing rendition of 'Happy Birthday'.

The Dalai Lama then blew out a single candle on a cake made of fruit, before cutting it. "Thank you, thank you," he said. "Dear brothers and sisters, I really appreciate so many people's expression of warm feeling." He then went on to joke about the age of Smith and her band. "These singers and musicians have white hair, but they look very youthful! That gives me encouragement, I should be more like you - more active!"

FJM

Father John Misty put out a heart-shaped single for Record Store Day 2015 (4/18), which featured an acoustic version of I Love You Honeybear's title track, retitled "I Loved You, Honeybee" on the a-side, and unreleased song "Never Been a Woman," on the flip. You can stream both sides of that below.

The same day, he performed at the second weekend of Coachella and included a cover of Leonard Cohen's "I'm Your Man" which you can watch here. He also made a surprise appearance with Florence & the Machine (who played sitting down after breaking her foot at Weekend 1) during her set on Sunday (4/19) for a duet of "Love Hurts." You can watch that below.

Father John Misty will be back in NYC for a show at Central Park Summerstage's Rumsey Field on August 5 with Angel Olsen, and Summer Moon. Tickets are still available. He's just announced more tour dates, saying "Touring can be really lonely. You feel isolated, disoriented. Even sort of socially catatonic. That's why it's so important that I see your beautiful little stupid faces. You are my lifeline to the world of mankind." All dates are listed below...

Empress Of

Empress Of, aka NYC art-pop musician Lorely Rodriguez, has released a new single in anticipation of her upcoming debut album, which will be out later this year via Terrible/XL Records. "Water Water" features Lorely balancing airy vocals over a pulsating electronic instrumental. Stream the new track in full below.

Empress Of just played a DJ set at the BV-presented Porches show earlier this month, and has a run of live sets lined up. Lorely plays a show at Joshua Tree in California with Jamie xx and Jon Hopkins tomorrow night (4/16) and then comes to NYC for a five-night stand residency at Elvis Guesthouse from April 28 to May 2 with each night supported by to-be-announced special guests. Tickets for all five nights are on sale now. Empress Of will also support Florence & The Machine for a pair of non-NYC dates in June (hopefully Florence's broken foot will have recovered).

All dates are listed, along with a stream "Water Water," below...

Drake / St. Vincent / Jenny Lewis
Coachella 2015 - Day 3
Coachella 2015 - Day 3
Coachella 2015 - Day 3

Remember punk? The supposed sound of youth and clarity? I don't know about that. Every kind of music has the age it is and the age it wants to be. At Coachella, electronic dance music wants to be young, electro-soul wants to be late-20s and early 30s, and punk, regardless of the age of the people playing it, wants to be middle-aged or older, with mixed feelings. It's the sound of probity, disappointment, disapproval.

The visual clichés of Coachella are sunglasses and dyed blond hair and gym-rats with neon tank tops. The punk shows I've seen so far -- there are a few of them here and there, with small crowds, like secret meetings -- are where the sundresses and tank tops are not. The obstructing monolith disappears; suddenly a different festival reveals itself. Whatever the music might give you, the sight is a relieving contrast. [NY Times]

Coachella 2015 day 3 had the most amount of punk bands of the three days, a genre that was surprisingly well-represented this year, despite the bands' much smaller crowds compared to the increased interest in EDM acts. Day 3 had Brand New, Conor Oberst's recently-reformed Desaparecidos, OFF!, Touche Amore and Joyce Manor, as well as somewhat-related bands like Conor's old Saddle Creek pal Jenny Lewis and Brand New/Desaparecidos' sideshow mate Built to Spill. According to Ian Cohen at Pitchfork, those punk bands "tore through tight and triumphant sets--the difference between bands that had to win over kids instead of critics over the years instead of vice versa was abundantly clear."

It was also the day that Drake headlined (and, uh, made out with Madonna on stage), Florence + the Machine played (and sadly, Florence broke her foot after her set), and we got sets from Ryan Adams, St. Vincent, Jamie xx, Mac DeMarco, Panda Bear, Charles Bradley, Philip Selway, Angel Olsen, John Talabot, Sturgill Simpson, The Cribs and more.

Pictures of day 1 HERE and day 2 HERE. More day 3 pictures below...
