  1. Black Country, New Road, the noisy young British band from the same scene that birthed Black Midi, were supposed to perform at the Haldern Pop Festival in Germany this year. Although the actual Haldern Pop Festival, like pretty much every other festival out there, is cancelled, its organizers are instead hosting a series … More »View the full article
  2. The Weeknd played a virtual concert on TikTok last night. The singer's avatar performed several songs accompanied by trippy 3D visual effects in "The Weeknd Experience," an interactive augmented reality livestream billed as the platform's "first-ever in-app cross reality experience." During "In Your Eyes," a digital avatar of Doja Cat joined the party … More »View the full article
  3. MTV's annual Video Music Awards are set to take place later this month. The Governor Cuomo-approved plan was to have them at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, with little or no audience present and live performances around various New York City locations. But now, perhaps unsurprisingly, Page Six reports that the … More »View the full article
  4. Enlarge (credit: Qualcomm) A billion or more Android devices are vulnerable to hacks that can turn them into spying tools by exploiting more than 400 vulnerabilities in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chip, researchers reported this week. The vulnerabilities can be exploited when a target downloads a video or other content that’s rendered by the chip. Targets can also be attacked by installing malicious apps that require no permissions at all. From there, attackers can monitor locations and listen to nearby audio in real time and exfiltrate photos and videos. Exploits also make it possible to render the phone completely unresponsive. Infections can be hidden from the operating system in a way that makes disinfecting difficult. Read 7 remaining paragraphs | Comments View the full article

  7. Enlarge / Androids only. (credit: Microsoft) Cloud gaming is increasingly becoming a thing, one that lets you play AAA games on a device regardless of the hardware specs. If your device can stream a video, it can probably play Red Dead Redemption on Google Stadia or Halo on Microsoft's xCloud (which is now technically called "Cloud gaming (Beta) with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate"). If your device is an iPhone or iPad, though, you're out of luck. Apple says these apps violate its App Store policies and will not be allowed into Apple's walled garden. Apple sent a statement to Business Insider: The App Store was created to be a safe and trusted place for customers to discover and download apps, and a great business opportunity for all developers. Before they go on our store, all apps are reviewed against the same set of guidelines that are intended to protect customers and provide a fair and level playing field to developers. Our customers enjoy great apps and games from millions of developers, and gaming services can absolutely launch on the App Store as long as they follow the same set of guidelines applicable to all developers, including submitting games individually for review, and appearing in charts and search. In addition to the App Store, developers can choose to reach all iPhone and iPad users over the web through Safari and other browsers on the App Store. Apple's App Store pitch is that it has real, live humans personally review each app for safety and quality, giving users a single, trusted place to get all their apps. Apple wants to approve these games individually and let users rate them individually through the App Store. The guidelines Apple cites flatly ban showing "store-like interfaces" on a remote computer and "thin clients for cloud-based apps," which Stadia and xCloud both run afoul of.

  8. From what Bryan Adams has told us, the summer of 2020 seems way, way shittier than the summer of '69. But now it looks like Adams will get to sing "Summer Of '69" in an actual stadium before the summer of 2020 is over, so maybe things are looking up. Adams has been booked to … More »View the full article
  9. Right now, a whole lot of rappers are following in Young Thug's footsteps, attempting the same kind of squeaky, melodic trap style. The 22-year-old Atlanta rapper Lil Keed, a protege of Thug, is the only one who's really willing to get as weird as Thug himself. On his Long Live Mexico album last year, Keed … More »View the full article
  10. Best Coast's debut album Crazy For You just turned 10. And to celebrate, the band is releasing a new version of its classic opener "Boyfriend," one of the best songs of the past decade.

  11. Daði Freyr has heard your cries of "play 'Ja Ja Ding Dong,'" and he has answered them by playing "Ja Ja Ding Dong." "Ja Ja Ding Dong," for the uninitiated, is the absolute banger from Will Ferrell's Netflix comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga. In the movie, the running joke … More »View the full article
  12. The Arkansas band Terminal Nation make some brutally heavy and intense music. Terminal Nation have been releasing music since 2014, and they've left behind a bloody trail of grimy, nasty EPs. Listening back through their Bandcamp, you can hear a whole aesthetic evolution at work, as the band has moved from short, fast … More »View the full article
  13. Inara George of the Bird and the Bee has recruited Dave Grohl for a new duet rendition of her track, “Sex in Cars.” Originally appearing in George’s latest solo three-song project, The Youth of Angst, “Sex in Cars” is part of a series of releases for her “Road Angel Project, which is raising money for the Sweet Relief’s COVID-19 fund aimed at helping musicians and music industry professionals who have been financially impacted by the global pandemic. “I always knew I wanted this version of ‘Sex In Cars’ with Dave to benefit some amazing non-profit,” George said in a statement. “As the pandemic hit and it became very clear that live music would not resume for many, many months, I immediately thought of Sweet Relief, not only because they help so many musicians, but also because they help everyone in the music industry.” The Foo Fighters singer was not only more than happy to work with George but also to be part of this new project. “Having been such a massive fan of Inara for years, it’s always such an incredible honor to work with her, whether on Foo Fighters music or for the Bird and the Bee,” he added. “Her voice is timeless, so pure and real. So I jumped at the chance to duet with her on this song. It was a dream come true! And for a great cause: Musicians coming together to support each other in difficult times, working to keep the music alive.” This isn’t the first time George and Grohl have collaborated. The Foo Fighters frontman took over the drums when the Bird and the Bee performed at The Late Late Show with James Corden last year. You can watch that performance here. Listen to the new version of Inara George’s “Sex in Cars” with Dave Grohl below. The next track off George’s “Road Angel Project will release on Sept. 4 and include songs by Alex Lilly, Danielle De Andrea (featuring Larry Goldings) and Mike Viola. View the full article
  14. For more than a decade, the New York band Krallice have combined forbidding, atmospheric black metal fury with experimental math-rock complexity. Most of the time, they've been wildly prolific. In 2017, for instance, Krallice released two albums -- Go Be Forgotten on their own, and Loüm in collaboration with Neurosis member … More »View the full article

  17. The young Delaware band Year Of The Knife make an absolutely brutal form of metallic hardcore. They play fast and ugly, bu they're not a basement band. Instead, YOTK's sound has the grand-scale ferocity of some of the best death metal. It's a truly satisfying form of pulverization. Today, we get to hear it in … More »View the full article
  18. According to the infinite font of wisdom that is Wikipedia, the Komusō were "a group of Japanese mendicant monks of the Fuke school of Zen Buddhism who flourished during the Edo period of 1600–1868." Komusō, the band whose name invokes those monks, is a Tokyo combo whose sound ranges from creeping, tightly wound post-hardcore to … More »View the full article
