This film tells the true story of Margret Keane (Adams), an enigmatic artist who made paintings of children with enormous eyes, whose husband, Walter Keane (Waltz), convinces her to allow him to pass off (and sell) her work as his own by saying no one would want to buy art created by a woman.

The film also features Jason Schwartzman and Krysten Ritter. Big Eyes will hit theaters Christmas Day.

Prince - Art Official Age

This shit is just plain hot!

Everything you need to know about the latest release from Prince is all in the name: “FUNKNROLL.” The music from this Art Official Age track is soaked in funk and it features a beautifully distorted guitar riff that perfectly shows off his chops on a six-string. On top of all of that, the song is plenty danceable and any DJ in their right mind would make sure to incorporate this into their shows starting this weekend.

Hear it below. [...]

Disclosure feat. Sam Smith – “Latch” (Schoolboy Q Remix)

19 Sep

Schoolboy Q 1

Who ever figured this would ever be coming our way? Disclosure’s Sam Smith-featuring “Latch” is one of the biggest hits of the year and now it’s gotten a new spin with a remix by Schoolboy Q. The “Man Of The Year” artist largely leaves the song in its original form but his verse 3/4 in works perfectly, almost as if it was always intended to be there.

Hear it after the jump. [...]

Mick Jenkins – “Rain” [Prod. Kaytranada]

19 Sep

Mick Jenkins - Rain

Peep the new Mick Jenkins joint produced by Kaytranada titled “Rain.” The last time we posted a Kaytranada-produced track was a beyond awesome track in Vic Mensa’s “Wimme Nah,” so this expectedly delivered some more dopeness. The music is a lot more chill in this scrapped The Water[s] joint. There’s a 90’s-era Outkast vibe to “Rain,” and Mick’s delivery rides the space-y beat smoothly.

Hear it below. [...]

Album Stream: Julian Casablancas + the Voidz – ‘Tyranny’

19 Sep

julian-casablancas-tyranny-artwork

 

Julian Casablancas’ new side project away from The Strokes has finally arrived. With the help of new backing band The Voidz, JC’s Tyranny has already turned some heads thanks to its heavy new sound, far from the synth-heavy production on his first solo effort. The first looks at this project have pointed to a grittier sound, a direction many a Strokes fan would appreciate.

Tyranny is due out Tuesday, September 23 on Casablancas’ label, Cult Records.

Get an advanced stream of the album over at Rolling Stone.
