    Relaxing before his Saturday mid-afternoon set at Coachella, Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, revisits a debate that he had earlier with his team about when to put out his new mixtape. "We were discussing on the bus whether or not to release it in a couple of hours," the 28-year-old actor-rapper, who is wearing a ZZ Top Eliminator cut-off, tells Rolling Stone. Glover opted against releasing the tape during the fest – and at press time, it has yet to hit the Web – but he sa...  | More »

  • Kraftwerk Performs 1977's Influential 'Trans-Europe Express'

    Night three of "Kraftwerk – Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8"  was devoted (or at least it was supposed to be; more later) to the influential group's album that might have made the most far-reaching impact of all, 1977's Trans-Europe Express. The band opened with the titular suite, where Afrika Bambaataa and Arthur Baker would pilfer the melody they combined with the rhythm pattern of Kraftwerk's "Numbers" to create the pioneering 1982 single "Planet Rock" – ...  | More »

  • Kraftwerk Plays 1975 Concept Album 'Radio-Activity' at MoMA

     |  Mike Rubin

    The second night of "Kraftwerk – Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8" included a particular challenge of presentation. The band’s fifth record, 1975’s Radio-Activity, is a relatively quiet affair, long on sound-effects sketches ("Geiger Counter," "Intermission," "News") and German being spoken ominously through a vocoder ("The Voice of Energy," "Uranium," "Radio Stars") but short on actual pop songs ("Antenna"). The first record recorded by the so-called "classic" Kraftwerk lineup...  | More »

  • 'Krautwerk' Satisfies Ticketless Kraftwerk Fans in Brooklyn

    April 11, 2012 3:25 PM ET
     |  Melissa Locker

    While Kraftwerk fans were dancing wildly to "More Fun to Compute" on the crowded floor last night, another set of fans were miles from the opening night of the revered group's retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. They were instead buried deep in the heart of Brooklyn, and seemingly very happy about it. When The Onion's features editor, Joe Garden, was unable to get tickets to see Kraftwerk's very sold-out eight-night stand at the MoMA, he didn't wallow in a broken h...  | More »

  • Kraftwerk Play 1974's 'Autobahn'

    Though it was opening night, the first evening of the Museum of Modern Art’s much anticipated "Kraftwerk – Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8" (henceforth to be referred to as "Kraftweek") actually honored the electronic pioneers’ fourth album, 1974’s Autobahn, the record that really made the German group’s international reputation. Thanks to an online snafu back in February (it’s more fun to compute? – yeah, right), tickets for the performances were diffi...  | More »

    In between touring Japan, winning a Grammy, performing for the Obamas and playing The Apollo, Derek Trucks found some time in February to produce and complete a new live album: Everybody’s Talking, due May 22nd. For the first live release with his latest musical embodiment, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Trucks called in legendary mastering engineer, Bob Ludwig, who took home a Grammy of his own this year for his work with The Derek and the Dominoes Layla re-issue. Ludwig and Trucks combed throu...  | More »

  • Avicii to Headline Ultra Music Festival in Miami

    December 23, 2011 12:10 PM ET
     |  Steve Baltin

    Last year's Ultra Music Festival in Miami was the biggest event in the series' 12-year history: a sold-out expansion to three days and over 100,000 attendees. Given how this was before the very well-documented 2011 dance music boom, next year's installment should promise even more. Even newly announced headliner Avicii isn't sure how big the event will be when festival returns March 23–25. "It’s gonna be unbelievable. I really have no idea what to expect," Avi...  | More »
