  1. Today, Lindsey Buckingham releases his new self-titled album, his first solo album in a decade — and his first since being kicked out of Fleetwood Mac and all of the ensuing drama. Last night, he went on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to celebrate the release, where he played “On The Wrong Side,” which is just one of the LP’s shockingly good early singles. Watch Buckingham’s performance of the propulsive folk-rocker, complete with transcendent vocal harmonies and ripping guitar solos, below. View the full article
  2. Bertrand Goldberg is best known as an architect, but those with more robust understanding of his work refer to him as a “design scientist.” After several years of training at the Cambridge School of Landscape Architecture and the Bauhaus in Berlin between World Wars, Goldberg returned to his native Chicago and quickly made a name for himself. His first big coup, dating to 1938, was a line of shops for the North Pole ice cream chain that could be easily disassembled and transported to alternate locations. From there he went on to design plywood boxcars, prefab housing units, rear-engine automobiles, innovative furniture, even mobile vaccine laboratories. But the crown jewel of his career was Marina City. View the full article
  3. This past week, Grime attended the Met Gala, rocking a Dune-inspired look that included a sleek facemask, a “secret book,” and a gigantic sword. Credit where it’s due: She looked cool as hell. While she was getting ready for the big to-do, Grimes also did a Vogue video interview where she talked about the forthcoming follow-up to her 2020 album Miss Anthropocene. Grimes has already said a lot about the as-yet-untitled new LP, which will supposedly be a space opera about a lesbian artificial intelligence. She’s also teased clips of new songs on Discord and TikTok. In that Vogue interview, she makes some grand pronouncements about it. View the full article
  4. Enlarge (credit: Austin Distel) SushiSwap's chief technology officer says the company's MISO platform has been hit by a software supply chain attack. SushiSwap is a community-driven decentralized finance (DeFi) platform that lets users swap, earn, lend, borrow, and leverage cryptocurrency assets all from one place. Launched earlier this year, Sushi's newest offering, Minimal Initial SushiSwap Offering (MISO), is a token launchpad that lets projects launch their own tokens on the Sushi network. Unlike cryptocurrency coins that need a native blockchain and substantive groundwork, DeFi tokens are an easier alternative to implement, as they can function on an existing blockchain. For example, anybody can create their own "digital tokens" on top of the Ethereum blockchain without having to recreate a new cryptocurrency altogether. Attacker steals $3 million in Ethereum via one GitHub commit In a Twitter thread today, SushiSwap CTO Joseph Delong announced that an auction on MISO launchpad had been hijacked via a supply chain attack. An "anonymous contractor" with the GitHub handle AristoK3 and access to the project's code repository had pushed a malicious code commit that was distributed on the platform's front-end.

  5. Dell's XPS 15 9510. [credit: Andrew Cunningham ] Most people buying a laptop these days will get by just fine with a 13- or 14-inch thin-and-light PC like the Dell XPS 13 or Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon. These laptops have reasonably powerful processors and integrated graphics that are good enough for an external monitor or two, but they prioritize a thin profile and light weight over performance. Still, sometimes you need something larger and more powerful, whether it’s because you want a bigger screen to use away from your desk or you need extra processor cores or graphical power for editing videos or playing games. And if you want those things in a laptop that doesn’t totally disregard size and weight—and if you prefer or require Windows instead of macOS—that’s when you buy something like the XPS 15. The latest XPS 15 (officially, model number 9510) is yet another iterative improvement for a laptop that has always looked and felt like a blown-up version of the XPS 13. But six- or eight-core Intel Tiger Lake processors and a new Nvidia GeForce RTX GPUs with ray tracing capabilities make this version of the XPS 15 especially appealing for professionals and light gamers, even if updated competitors like Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 (and, when it’s finally released, an updated version of the 16-inch MacBook Pro with Apple Silicon) give it a run for its money.

  6. Right now, Taylor Swift is undertaking the vast project of re-recording all of her old albums — partly as a way to re-examine those old songs but mostly as a grand fuck-you to Scooter Braun, the man who bought her master recordings. Swift released her new version of 2008’s Fearless back in April, and she’s said that she’ll release her new take on 2012’s Red in November. That new version will include a lot of bonus tracks, and Swift will have help from some big stars. But today, Swift released a new Taylor’s Version, and it’s not a take of one of the songs from Red. Instead, she’s re-constructed “Wildest Dreams,” the great single from her hugely popular 2014 album 1989. View the full article
  7. In 2015, Nick Cave’s son Arthur fell from a cliff near Brighton and died. Arthur was 15. Since then, a great deal of Nick Cave’s work has revolved, quite understandably, around grief. Cave and the Bad Seeds’ deeply powerful 2019 album Ghosteen, in particular, worked as a meditation on loss. And now Cave will further explore that grief in a new memoir called Faith, Hope & Carnage.

  8. The immensely popular and divisive Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso — a warm-hearted sitcom that runs on good vibes rather than good jokes, in which Jason Sudeikis plays a relentlessly positive American football coach hired to coach a British football (soccer) team — is close to wrapping up its second season. Today Apple Music has released the soundtrack for that season. View the full article
  9. In The Number Ones, I’m reviewing every single #1 single in the history of the Billboard Hot 100, starting with the chart’s beginning, in 1958, and working my way up into the present. View the full article
  10. If you thought Taylor Hawkins was busy enough to do anything else besides what he’s done this year, well, guess again! Hawkins teamed up with Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro and bassist Chris Chaney (who also played with Hawkins in Alanis Morissette’s band) to form NHC. According to a release, NHC formed in the past year, and needless to say, these guys know each other pretty well from over the years. NHC shared their first two songs, “Feed the Cruel” and “Better Move On,” which features Hawkins on lead vocals and drums, and you can hear them below. The trio will be making their live debut in two weeks at Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Encore weekend in Dana Point on October 2. The post Dave Navarro, Taylor Hawkins Form New Band NHC, Share Two Songs appeared first on SPIN. View the full article
  11. Dave Navarro, Taylor Hawkins, and Chris Chaney have formed a new band called NHC. (Navarro, Hawkins, Chaney — get it?) The Los Angeles rockers, of course, have some history: both Navarro and Chaney are in Jane’s Addiction, and Chaney and Hawkins played together in Alanas Morissette’s touring band back in the day. Plus, Chaney has helped Hawkins out with his …And The Coattail Riders group. Suffice to say these dudes know each other. View the full article
  12. Next week, the Hal Willner-organized album I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to the Velvet Underground & Nico is being released. On it, a whole lot of artists cover every song on the Velvet Underground’s 1967 debut. We’ve heard contributions from Iggy Pop and Matt Sweeney, Kurt Vile, Matt Berninger, and Courtney Barnett, and now — fresh off linking up with Angel Olsen to do their recent collab live at Pitchfork Music Fest — Sharon Van Etten is here with her rendition of “Femme Fatale.” Check it out below.

  13. Toronto dance-punk duo Death From Above 1979 have covered Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” for Amazon Music. “We made a kind of witchy version of the song that would make Steve Perry magically join Journey again,” the band wrote on Twitter. If you’re an Amazon Music subscriber, you can check it out below. View the full article
  14. The Sydney, Australia-based band Low Life have announced a new album, From Squats To Lots: The Agony And XTC Of Low Life, the follow-up to their 2019 album Downer Edn. Today, they’re releasing the album’s lead single, “Agony & XTC,” an energetic and pummeling scrawl. Check out a music video for the track below. View the full article
  15. Joyce Manor played the opening night of Riot Fest in Chicago on Thursday night and they broke out a cover of My Chemical Romance’s Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge anthem “Helena.” Seems like a match made in heaven! View the full article
