Missy Elliot’s WTF music video gifs for your enjoyment

First it was vaguely confusing to see Missy Elliot play at a Super Bowl without any sort of tour or album plan in the works. Then it became clear not too long afterward - it was a secret, underground sort of deal she was working on. Now we get to begin to see the fruits of her labor. Missy Elliot has returned with a single by the name of WTF (Where They From) with Pharrell Williams in tow - producing and rapping alongside Elliot, too. And the music video is wild.

YouTube Music is here: download now for Android and iPhone

Google has officially launched YouTube Music, an app that sits separate from the original YouTube app. This app is different from what Google revealed earlier this year in "YouTube Music Key" - here you're getting a music experience outside of the standard YouTube app. This app works with the Google Music subscription fee and is provided in the single monthly cost. You can also access the app (some of it, anyway) without a fee.

Spotify app now recommends concerts based on user preferences

Spotify has added a new feature to its app that aims to take its personalized music recommendations beyond the mobile screen.

Nixeus ARC 4.0 Bluetooth speaker mini-review

Nixeus ARC 4.0 Bluetooth speaker mini-review

Music, as with most gadgets and entertainment in one’s life, has become portable, with powerful speakers about the size of soda cans filling the market. They pack a battery, allowing them to run for hours without a wired tether; they connect to your phone or tablet over Bluetooth, eliminating the other wired tether. Many even function as a speakerphone, allowing one to take a call seamlessly, then return to their music. All these things are true of the Nixeus ARC 4.0, a wireless speaker we recently took for a spin.

Metallica’s first album in 7 years: hear the first notes in-studio

Today a video has been released by Metallica to celebrate their new website AND show the first tunes from their new album. This album will be released at SOME point in the next few months - they're literally in the studio as of last week recording it. The video you're going to see shows Lars Ulrich talking at length about a bunch of junk, then shows James Hetfield recording some drums - no, vocals - no, maybe some guitar tunes. One way or the other you'll be hearing a few notes.

Foo Fighters countdown could mean next Sonic Highways

Foo Fighters countdown could mean next Sonic Highways

The countdown clock on the Foo Fighters' homepage isn't just readied for Halloween. On the contrary - it's set for 24 days from now, hitting zero at Midnight on the 20th of November. At that time, the band headed by Dave Growl could well release a new season of the HBO-centric documentary series Sonic Highways. The logo plate on the website indicates as much. On the other hand, this could be a place for the launch of an EP - the band recently recorded five songs in Austin, after all.

Blue announces Lola headphones, a follow-up to Mo-Fi

Blue announces Lola headphones, a follow-up to Mo-Fi

High-end microphone manufacturer Blue has just debuted its second pair of headphones, following after last year's impressive Mo-Fi. The new Lola headphones feature a similar design, but cut down on weight and offer a more comfortable fit. Blue says that the Lola headphones will still offer the premium sound of the Mo-Fi, due to using the same custom 50mm drivers as last year. But while the Mo-Fi also had a built-in amp, the Lola ditches it in favor of a light weight for longer periods of wear.

Pandora settles with record companies for $90m

Pandora settles with record companies for $90m

Pandora has long battled it out over royalties, perhaps being consistently at the front of the issue when it comes to Internet music streaming. This issue, in one way or another, has been fought over the course of many years, but it doesn't look like it'll ever be going away. While Pandora has had its share of victories (and made some crafty business moves), it can't win them all, something shown by its latest royalty burden.

The Science of Sound: the Key to Pulling off Festivals and Concerts

The Science of Sound: the Key to Pulling off Festivals and Concerts

Before the beards can nod to the Alabama Shakes, or bikini-clad girls can do snow angels in triple-digit heat - on thick green grass in the middle of a barren desert at Coachella - there’s a lot that has to happen. The euphoric resonance of a festival like Glastonbury, Coachella, or Bonnaroo doesn’t occur without the music, and the music doesn’t translate with crappy sound.
