    Amos Barshad

  5. The Album Doctor Is Back

    Steven Hyden

    Amos Barshad

    As our man Rembert Browne already told you people, Outkast shouldn't be truly considered "confirmed" for Coachella until it's actually onstage at Coachella. But now we've got the second-best thing: Following news breaks and Instagram innuendo and wee...

    Rembert Browne

    On Sunday night, YouTube held its first annual music awards show. They were called the YouTube Music Awards. And to view said awards, all you had to do was go on YouTube. Unfortunately, during the time of the YouTube Awards, I was nowhere near a Y...

  13. Arcade Fire's 'Afterlife': No Longer Thinking About Death

    Emily Yoshida

    "Reflektor", the debut title track of the fourth album from Montreal alt-rena rockers Arcade Fire, certainly sounded like a new direction for the band, but longtime fans knew that was the same old ArcFi under James Murphy's funkified production and i...
