Guns N’ Roses’ Gargantuan ‘Appetite for Destruction’ Box Set: A User’s Guide
Guns N' Roses

Guns N’ Roses may have missed the 30th anniversary of their monumental debut album, Appetite for Destruction, by a year, but as with all things GN’R-related, it’s better late than never. To mark the legacy of the record that made them superstars, the band is putting out a multi-disc Appetite box set, which collects a treasure trove of B sides, outtakes, rarities and demo sessions – alongside an excellent-sounding remaster of the original album – for an exhaustive, comprehensive look...

Hear ‘Angel Eyes’ Duo Love and Theft’s New Song ‘You Didn’t Want Me’
Country Music

Country duo Love and Theft have returned with the new song and video, “You Didn’t Want Me,” their first release in two years. Members Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson, who scored a Number One hit in 2011 with “Angel Eyes,” bring their signature harmonies to a barbed, melodic kiss-off for someone who didn’t appreciate a relationship when it was actually happening. It’s a theme at odds with the song’s bright, pop-influenced melody and quasi-reggae rhythm, adding a breezy feel...

Revolution at 3.5″: Inside Vaporwave’s Mini-Boom of Floppy Disk Releases
Music

Sterling Campbell had co-founded a cassette label and a VHS tape label in Ottawa, but needed a new creative outlet after moving back to Cornwall, Ontario, to be closer to his daughter. “I was like, ‘I need to start something up for myself here,’” he says. “‘What’s the most ridiculous thing I could do right now?’” The answer was Strudelsoft, the label that the 36-year-old bills as the first vaporwave imprint dedicated exclusively to releasing music on 3.5″ floppy disk....

Review: Jim James Looks Back to His Slacker Rock Roots on ‘Uniform Distortion’
Album Reviews

The elevator pitch for My Morning Jacket, very roughly, has long been the Allman Brothers retooled as Radiohead. So it’s cool that to hear frontman Jim James reverse-engineering his steez on his latest solo LP. A loving tribute to old-school shit spiritually informed by the hippie bible The Whole Earth Catalog, it’s also informed by dirtbag classic rock and slacker post-punk, with loads of choogling guitars and chuckled asides. The shreddy “Just A Fool” is about being a rock-and-roll knucklehead; it...

Paul McCartney’s Many Surprise Appearances: A Brief History
Music

Imagine you’re out having a beer with some friends when Sir Paul McCartney suddenly starts playing a mere coaster’s throw away. Just recently, McCartney shocked punters at Liverpool’s Philharmonic pub by performing a free surprise concert with a full band, part of a special homecoming edition of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. But the ex-Beatle doesn’t need a reason to rock out at random. Over the years, McCartney has displayed a knack for popping up in the most unexpected places, usually...

Hear Escort Singer Adeline’s Funky New Song ‘Emeralds’
Escort

Adeline, singer of nu-disco band Escort, achieves a “natural” high on her funky new slow jam “Emeralds.” “No drugs, no drinks, no pills; I don’t need to pretend,” she croons over slap-bass, psychedelic guitar lines and atmospheric synths. “No shame, no fucks to give; I’ll do it all again.” The vocalist paired her debut solo single with an impressionistic video in which she sings in a mirrored room and appears to levitate backwards off the ground. In a statement to...

Review: Let’s Eat Grandma’s ‘I’m All Ears’ Is Adventurous Bubblegum
Album Reviews

One of pop’s central problems is that it’s always trying to be so damn popular. Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth aren’t, at least not in the usual boilerplate ways. They’re teenaged BFFs from Northeast England with a surrealist sense of humor, as their band name suggests. For the second Let’s Eat Grandma LP, <em>I’m All Ears</em>, they depart the willfully weird fringe territory of their debut for someplace nearer the mainstream, and the music is stronger for it — a balancing...
