Weezer’s New Album Art, Title and Lead Single

I’ve had a rocky ride with Weezer for the past 15 years or so. The thrilling highs, the befuddling lows, and their uncanny ability to do the very thing you least expect them to do at every turn.

Well, they have topped themselves AGAIN, which is staggering after the dog-jumping-across-the-living-room cover of Raditude, and the fact that Rainn Wilson named their last album, and that he named it Raditude, and that Lil Wayne was on the album in a song that Jermaine Dupri co-wrote. Forget all that. The new album is called Hurley (you know, the guy from LOST?), and the album cover is a big, glorious photo of actor Jorge Garcia’s face.

If that’s not mind-boggling enough for you, the lead single, “Memories”, is actually pretty satisfying. Loud, sloppy guitars, scratchy, shouted, emoted vocals, and a searing synthy hook that hearkens back to early b-side “You Gave Your Love to Me Softly.”

You never know what awaits you just around the corner with Weezer, but for now, rejoice in the fact that all the news is great news.

The Goddess Returns

Is she the crowned princess of dance music? Nope, think bigger. Queen? Closer, but still light years off. Goddess? Yeah, that’s the ticket!

Aphrodite, to be exact. No, that’s not just the name of her new (and 11th) album (Try counting that many albums on your fingers, little babies! No? Add a toe!), that’s actually Kylie’s literal identity. She is, in fact, the goddess Aphrodite. She is just chilling on earth for the past 20 years or so, so you’d better enjoy this shit while she’s dishing it out, before she goes back into outer space where all the other gods party without us!

Wanna hear her new album for free online before you trip over yourself trying to whip out your debit card to buy 10 copies in a week? NPR is here for you.

Wait, I mean, here for you.
