Hear the Lonely Island’s Unused Oscars Parody Song
Music News

Comedy troupe the Lonely Island released an unused parody song they originally wrote and demoed for the 2018 Oscars. Throughout the hilarious track, the trio – Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer – portray characters from big-budget Hollywood movies and critically panned projects who vent about their lack of nominations. “We were asked to write a song for this year’s Academy Awards,” the Lonely Island write in the song’s goofy video mock-up. “Unfortunately, it wasn’t chosen because it...

Review: Lucy Dacus Turns Interior Drama Into Indie-Rock Gold on ‘Historian’
Music News

Richmond, Virginia singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus has said her second LP is concerned with staking her artistic platform to activist action. For the most part, though, the confrontations she maps out are more interior than openly polemic. Historian opens with “Night Shift,” where she sings about shaking loose a romantic obsession, her voice as delicate as an exhalation as she finds herself caught between longing and “resisting urges to punch you in the teeth.” These songs are confessional but not diaristic,...

Royce Da 5’9″ and 2 Chainz tackle love in the social-media era on their new collaboration “Flirt,” a track from Royce and DJ Premier’s PRhyme project. DJ Premier provides the two rappers with an ornate beat full of elaborate string samples and stinging drums. The frilly instrumental spurs Royce Da 5’9″ to catalog a series of frustrating romantic interactions before landing on dismissive, sing-song chorus: “Bad bitches can’t flirt good for shit.”  If Royce 5’9″ is...

Music News

When Lucius’ Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig first sang with Roger Waters, the clouds above them parted and a giant rainbow stretched across the sky. Literally. The two women were late additions to the singer-songwriter’s surprise appearance at the Newport Folk Festival in 2015, when he came out with My Morning Jacket for a set of solo cuts and Pink Floyd classics.
