It's always a sad day when something strikes you inside your mail box, especially when it's a letter from one of your favorite labels reporting of another beautiful musician that we have tragically lost again. Jason Molina (from bands like Magnolia Electric Co and Songs: Ohia) passed away suddenly Saturday, due to complications of organ failure, along with his unfortunate, struggling love and hate relationship with alcohol. When listening to Jason Molina's music, his lyrics have always been so honest, tragic, and forthright along with his voice and familiar southern guitar echoing in one hand, [...]

The announcement got us thinking about the boldest images from music videos that have stuck with us over the years — those works that helped break the barriers of censorship and became the [...]

As we noted last week , we were both intrigued and disconcerted by the arrival of the new Beach House video for "Wishes," which features the ever-terrifying Ray "Leland Palmer" Wise lip-synching to the song as he directs some sort of weird gymanstic-centric cult meeting in a sports stadium. It's the latest in a series of pretty awesome videos from Beach House, and it got us thinking about other bands who've really embraced the medium as an art form, making consistently great videos over the years. Here are some of our favorites! [...]

:: We don't know about you but we're feeling, well, disposable. A box of fan mail addressed to Taylor Swift was found in a Nashville garbage can; her publicist chalked it up to a mistake. We'll give her the benefit of the doubt, because doesn't Taylor seem like the kind of girl who reads all her fan mail?

As fans patiently wait for M.I.A. 's new album MATANAGI to drop this April, she teases them with a new mix. The track, which serves as a prequel to her upcoming effort, is a collaborative effort with fashion house Kenzo .

Although the track is 8-minutes long, it sounds like a perfect mash-up of multiple songs and rhythms that make for an [...]
