Yeah, that Hanks. Chet Hanks, son of Oscar-winning actor Tom, is the latest celebrity offspring to try his hand at becoming a rapper. Hanks, rapping under the name Chet Haze, wisely sticks to the subjects he knows best. Not quite his cameo appearance in the recent Indiana Jones movie or the dastardly butler forgetting to fold […]
The first song from the Kanye West/Jay-Z project “Watch the Throne” dropped a few minutes ago. It is called Ham. I think I what the song is called ham theres a chorus breakdown what HAM i dont even know what’s real anymore
Sometimes I write long, boring paragraphs to go with videos. This isn’t one of those times. Alternative link for those behind the Iron Curtain.
I had a plan to close out this series’ final episode with an epic epilogue but whatdafuck it’s Christmas, and to celebrate here is the undisputed greatest Christmas song of all time. Check back next year for all twelve songs in a slightly different order. Merry Christmas everybody – enjoy it.
Over the course of the last 9 Days of Christmas, we’ve seen a wide range of emotional responses, from the romanticism of ‘White Christmas‘ and optimism of ‘Merry Xmas Everybody‘ to the longing of ‘All I Want for Christmas‘ and outright hostility in ‘Fuck Christmas.’ What we haven’t seen is perhaps the simplest joy of […]
OK, I guess yesterday confirmed that people don’t take too kindly to hardcore punk and f-worded sentiments in their Christmas cheer. Their loss. Today, we continue on a Christmas classic buzz, albeit a much more mainstream one. One of the great ironies of Christmas music, in the pre-internet era at least, is that the songs […]
When we think of classic Christmas songs, it tends to be the case that the older the song, the better. In a sense, this is a natural reaction to the passage of time and our innate distrust of the present, but perhaps it also says something about how pop culture has captured Christmas. While much […]
Kanye West’s been neglecting his G.O.O.D. Fridays project as of late – no new updates since mid-November – but you didn’t really think he could let Christmas pass without another gift, did you? The base track for ‘Christmas in Harlem’ “leaked” (in other words, Kanye sent it out) on Wednesday, featuring professional famous person Teyana […]
Yesterday, we began our countdown with a classic from over half a century ago. Today, we focus on something much more recent – so recent, in fact, it was only released today. The Popical Island Collective came together largely of necessity – Irish labels are overwhelmingly biased towards either commercial music or punk – but […]
Though the phrase “Twelve Days of Christmas” traditionally refers to the period beginning on Christmas Day, we at Sputnikmusic are far more interested in the dozen days leading up to it, when the anticipation and excitement builds and builds until the inevitable disappointment kicks in on Christmas morning. Over the next twelve days, we hope […]
Billy Bragg, M. Ward and Owen Pallett, amongst a host of others, have come together to record a Joanna Newsom cover record released digitally recently in support of the Oxfam America Pakistan Flood Relief fund. They’ve uploaded the album to Soundcloud, embedded below, and if you’re feeling particularly charitable you can head to their website, […]
Patrick Wolf’s new album will be coming out within the next few months or so, and I am incredibly happy because I love him more than words can express. “Time Of My Life” is the first song released so far, and you can preorder the 7″ single here. Side B is a cover of Leonard […]
Depending on who you believe, The Room is either the most unintentionally funny serious movie ever made or the greatest stitch-up of all time. Either way, nobody who sees Tommy Wiseau’s $6 million directorial debut is quite the same afterwards. Now, the film’s most famous line – “you are tearing me apart, Lisa!” – has […]

English metalcore act Architects have been playing a new song entitled ‘Delete Rewind’ on tour in the UK. The Brighton band have been performing with Norma Jean and Devil Sold His Soul in support, and will release their fourth album, The Here and Now, in January. A second new song, ‘Day In, Day Out,’ can […]
