Music News Nuggets: Fred Armisen, Neil Young, Kate Bush, Dave Grohl And More!
By Matt Grosinger on August 27, 2014
People all over the world, join hands, join the news train, the news train! On today’s edition of Nerdist’s music news round up, we delve deep into the world of music and entertainment to find where the two overlap into, you know, a love train. Below you’ll find a melange of new music from extra cute producers, a rocking new Christopher Owens country jam, and an all-star (Dave Grohl, Gwen Stefani, TJ Miller and way more) song send off for Chelsea Handler. Enjoy homies!
Fred Armisen ruins J Mascis’ hippie cult in the rock legend’s new music video for “Every Morning”. Very potent and welcome Portlandia vibes emanating from this one:
Gwen Stafani, Dave Grohl, 50 cent and virtually all of Hollywood bid farewell to Chelsea Handler on the final episode of Chelsea Lately. 50 looks distracted, likely because he is worried that Floyd Mayweather is looking to punch his face in a public arena.
Grimes shared her new music video for her EDM crossover jam “Go”. Watch as she gets a piggy back from the hipster version of The Hound:
SOPHIE and A.G. Cook, the all-stars of the mega-cute/kawaii PC Music label have unleashed a cloyingly sweet pop song that sort of reminds me of Aqua’s “Barbie Girl”. Watch out for SOPHIE, who is currently writing music for J-Pop megastar Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. [via Pitchfork]
Christopher Owens, formerly of the band Girls has announced a tour and released a new track, “Never Wanna See That Look Again”
Kate Bush performed in concert for the first time in 35 years at London’s Eventim Apollo [via Stereogum]. Though she has requested that attendees leave their phones and cameras at home, a few sneaky fans were able to manage some instagrams from the night.
Neil Young has filed for divorce from his wife Pegi Young. The couple have been musical collaborators throughout their 36-year marriage and co-founded the Bridge School together in 1986. We wish them both the best as they go their separate ways and hopefully continue to make new music. [via Rolling Stone]
Childish Gambino released yesterday’s stellar Music Geek Track of the Day.
