  • Video: together PANGEA Plays 'Badillac'

    January 23, 2014 11:15 AM ET

    Many naysayers claim that rock 'n' roll is dead — that "the kids" these days only go for pop, hip-hop, and EDM. But as '90s punk forefathers Nirvana once said, nevermind all that. There's a raw rock revival going on right now, spearheaded by Nirvanian garage-punks like Black Lips, Wavves, FIDLAR, Ty Segall, Mikal Cronin, and together PANGEA at house parties and grungy, all-ages venues like L.A.'s the Smell — and with the release of together PANGEA's t...  | More »

  • Travis Show Where They Stand With Stunning Yahoo Music Performance

    It's hard to believe that Travis's breakthrough sophomore album, The Man Who, came out almost a decade and a half ago. It's even harder to imagine that at the time, NME said releasing the mellow, introspective album would be "career suicide" for the Scottish band, whose full-length debut Good Feeling had been much more rambunctious. The Man Who just didn't sound like the Travis fans had known, and it didn't sound anything else out at the time. Yet The Man Who went ...  | More »

  • Video: Natalia Kills Plays a Stripped-Down Set

    October 25, 2013 11:05 AM ET

    Seductive, stylish, and endlessly sexy, British singer Natalia Kills is a veritable atom bomb's worth of pop weaponry. With her big brown eyes and a smile that might lead you to your death, Kills was heralded as the next Lady Gaga upon her debut (to her dismay). But with her second album "Trouble," her sound has evolved to another echelon that is unquestioningly her own. With a just a mic and a guitar, there is nowhere for a singer's true voice and skill level to hide. And Kills pa...  | More »

    To say there's been a lot of anticipation surrounding the release of Katy Perry's third studio album, PRISM — well, that's kind of like saying pumpkins are popular around Halloween. The pop star has made an enormous "roar" in the months preceding her October 22 album release, with stunts ranging from a huge shiny gold van touting the date across the nation, to a slate of listening parties and social media contests. Given the success of the three singles already out from t...  | More »

  • Andrew Bird Turns Up the Volume at the ‘Quietest Show on Earth’

     |  Laura Ferreiro

    It's not often that going to a concert involves hiking through the desert for two hours with the performing musicians, dodging rattlesnakes, and getting stung by cactus plants, but that's exactly how the "Quietest Show on Earth" featuring Andrew Bird and Tift Merritt began. The unique show, which took place October 8 in Joshua Tree, was originally supposed to happen in the middle of Joshua Tree National Park, and was nearly canceled because of the U.S. federal government shutdown t...  | More »

    Hanson were in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 21 to attend the iHeartRadio Music Festival, where Yahoo Music had the chance to chat with Isaac, Taylor, and Zac. And they had a lot to say about how they (perhaps unlike ex-teen star/iHeart performer Miley Cyrus) managed to make a smooth, embarrassment-free transition into adulthood. "The truth is, we were always in it for the music. We always have been, even when Zac was 11 years old high on sugar," said Taylor. "I think that's a huge p...  | More »
