  7. Enlarge / The Pixel Watch. It's a round little pebble. (credit: Ron Amadeo) Here's one of the improvements Google might want to look into for the Pixel Watch 2: better glue. Android Police spotted a few reports of the back panels of some Pixel Watches just falling off. A few posts on the PixelWatch subreddit have photos of this phenomenon; several commenters say it happened to them, too. This certainly seems like something Google should cover under warranty, and with the device being less than a year old, everyone should be under warranty. You also have a strong argument if you contact Google support about a device that has fallen apart. The scary thing is this will also compromise the device's water resistance, and we doubt Google is covering every instance of water damage. Most reports indicate Google is taking care of the problem, but a few users were initially threatened with a $300 repair fee, which was later waived. When iFixit tore down the Pixel Watch, it noted the back adhesive was a novel "liquid gasket" the site had never seen before. The report said, "The rear glass appears to be held in place by a kind of liquid gasket that seals tightly, but comes open clean. It also peels off the glass with virtually no residue." It sounds like Google's fancy glue peels off a little too easily. Poorly adhered back panels were also a recent problem with Fossil watches, and in the "Gen 6" versions, Fossil acknowledged the problem and said it was fixed.

  8. Central Cee and Dave are two of the biggest stars in the UK rap world, and they’ve both become big festival draws across the world in the past few years. The two of them are good friends, but before today, they hadn’t been on a song together since 2016, when both of them appeared on AJ Tracey’s “Spirit Bomb” remix. Today, the two of them have come out with a fun, breezy new track called “Sprinter.” View the full article

  11. Ashley McBryde, one of the brightest lights within the country mainstream, took a slight detour outside her normal discography last year with Lindeville, a concept album about a fictional Southern town created with a handful of her Nashville singer-songwriter peers. This year she’s getting back to her main gig. View the full article
  12. This record is filthy. The extremely grimy Bay Area hardcore punk band Spy got started during the pandemic, and they made their name on the strength of their EPs — 2020’s Service Weapon, 2021’s Habitual Offender, their 2022 split with Maniac — and their reportedly-insane live show. Before releasing an album, Spy were already playing to huge crowds and spreading the gospel of ugly and unreformed basement-punk. Now, Spy have an album, so god only knows where they go from here.

  13. In 1985, hometown heroes the Replacements played a concert at Coffman Memorial Union at the University of Minnesota. The setlist looks awesome. (They covered “September Gurls”!) At the gig, Minnesota music photographer Daniel Corrigan, who shot the iconic rooftop photo of the ‘Mats that became the cover of Let It Be, snapped some shots of the band in the Coffman elevator. Until recently, framed copies of two of those photos could be seen hanging at Coffman, but as Minneapolis resident Tim Johnson pointed out on Twitter, they’ve been removed. View the full article
  14. Look: I can’t be objective here. No music critic is ever really objective — objectivity itself is a total myth — but I’m especially not objective here. Rancid are my favorite band of all time. Let’s Go changed my entire perception of reality when I was 14, and I’d be a profoundly different person if I didn’t find it at exactly the right time. I am in the tank for Rancid. With all that said, I am delighted to report that Rancid’s new album Tomorrow Never Comes kicks 31 flavors of ass. View the full article

  19. In 2003, a whole lot of musicians paid tribute to Allen Ginsberg, a towering figure in the history of American poetry, on the album Allen Ginsberg​’​s The Fall of America: A 50th Anniversary Musical Tribute. The album was intended to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Ginsberg’s book The Fall Of America: Poems Of These States 1965-1971, and it featured people like Yo La Tengo, Andrew Bird, Devendra Banhart, and Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo setting Ginsberg’s poems to music. Given that Ginsberg’s book was actually published in 1973, it only seems right that we’re getting a sequel on its real 50th anniversary. View the full article
  20. Cardi B doesn’t make albums anymore. She barely even bothers with singles. Instead, Cardi does her best work these days when she jumps on another rapper’s remix and just annihilates the song. That’s what Cardi did last year when she appeared on GloRilla’s “Tomorrow 2,” and now she’s done the same thing on Atlanta rapper Latto’s Put It On Da Floor Again.” View the full article
  21. Enlarge / A Maryland digital ID. (credit: Google) Google Wallet on Android is finally getting ready for your digital driver's license and other US state IDs. Google says the feature is rolling out this month, and it will slowly start bringing states online this year. Of course, your state has to be one of the few that actually supports digital IDs. Google says Maryland residents can use the feature right now and that "in the coming months, residents of Arizona, Colorado and Georgia will join them." The road to digital driver's license support has been a long one, with the "Identity Credential API" landing in Android 11 in 2020. Since then, it has technically been possible for states to make their own ID app. Now Google Wallet, Google's re-re-reboot of its payment app, is providing a first-party way to store an ID on your phone. Some parts of the Identity Credential API landed in Google Play Services (Google's version-agnostic brick of APIs), so Wallet supports digital IDs going back to Android 8.0, which covers about 90 percent of Android devices. Maryland has supported Digital IDs on iOS for a while, which gives us an idea of how this will work. An NFC transfer is enough to beam your credentials to someone, where you can just tap against a special NFC ID terminal and confirm the transfer with your fingerprint. Wallet has an NFC option, along with a "Show code" option that will show the traditional driver's license barcode. Read 2 remaining paragraphs | Comments View the full article
  22. Earlier this year, classic rap weirdo Kool Keith teamed up with Real Bad Man on the collaborative album Serpent. In a couple of weeks, Keith will follow that album with Black Elvis 2, his sequel to his 1999 cult classic. We’ve already posted Keith’s “Black Elvis 2 (Intro),” and now he’s teamed up with underground fixture Marc Live and fellow ’80s titan Ice-T on the new track “The Formula.” View the full article
  23. The "TinyTendo" project, which fits a real NES into a Game Boy-sized enclosure, isn't for the faint of heart. [credit: Redherring32/Twitter ] If you want a portable console that can play old Nintendo Entertainment System games, the easiest option is software emulation, whether you're using Nintendo's official Switch app, a portable PC, or some cheap knockoff emulator handheld. For those who want better accuracy than software emulation can provide, there's always the Analogue Pocket, which can (with current firmware) re-create the NES in hardware using its FPGA chip. But some purists are unsatisfied with anything other than original hardware—that's the only possible explanation for projects like the TinyTendo, which goes to extraordinary lengths to squeeze an entire NES into a portable package roughly the size and weight of the old gray monochrome Game Boy. The project is the creation of hardware modder Redherring32, who eventually plans to open-source the project. For miniaturization projects like this, you often see chopped-up or fully custom-printed circuit boards used with the original chips to contort the hardware into a new shape. This landscape orientation mod for the original Game Boy or the original Analogue NT are both good examples. But more drastic measures were needed to squeeze an entire NES into a handheld console, most notably the removal of bulky pins and ceramic that the original chips all use.
