Taylor Swift performed the last show of her “Speak Now” Tour last night at Madison Square Garden in New York.  One of the highest grossing tours of all time, Swift circled the globe performing for fans all over the world.  Some of the biggest stars also joined the 2011AMA Entertainer of the Year throughout the tour including:  Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Usher, Flo Rida, Hayley Williams and Nelly.  Last night the superstar’s best friend Selena Gomez finally got the chance.

“On special occasions, you want to be surrounded by your friends,” Taylor hinted at the audience.  “We, in our four years of being best friends have never sung on stage together and I think that is such a shame. So it just so happens, Selena’s here tonight.”

The pair sang the Disney star’s song “Who Says” while the crowd went wild.  But Gomez was not the last guest to sing with Swift on the tour.  Five-time Grammy Award Winner James Taylor joined the star on stage to sing his hit “Fire and Rain”.  She revealed that Taylor was the inspiration behind her name.

“I have so much to be thankful for this year,” she tweeted. “I’m leaving New York, replaying this tour in my mind. I love you all so much.”

Check out what the TST staff is listening to this week

Travis Phillips
Senior Contributor
Artist: Brandon Lockheart
Album: White Walls
Comments: This Detroit artist recently put out his debut mixtape entitled White Walls a few months back and even with the big releases from the likes of Drake, A$AP Rocky, and Chlidish Gambino it still gets played often. Lyrically the tape is excellent, production is glorious, and it flows like a sail boat down a stream on a windy day. Probably the best way the young MC could present himself to the world. Tracks like “Love Don’t Love Nobody”, “The Orange Grove”, “If I Could Escape”,  and “Do You Love Me” really showcases his talent and potential.

Anthony Rivera
Assistant Editor
Artist: Modest Mouse
Album: Good News for People Who Love Bad News
Comments: Everyone has songs or albums that stir up feelings of the past, and this Modest Mouse album brings me back to when I was 21, crazy and without a care in the world. My friends and I pumped this pink disc front to back for months and it still receives a steady rotation on my Droid. This is one of the few albums that I know every word and every note. It’s well written and there is nothing like listening to it full blast with a pair of good headphones to make sure you catch all the instruments, back-up vocals and the things people wish they could pull off in the studio. My personal favorite is number 8, “Bukowski”. Check out the bathroom recorded back-up vocals.

Matthew Fox
Assistant Editor
Artist: Cursive
Album: Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes
Comments: Anybody that listens to Cursive is well aware each album has its own attitude and style. The Ugly Organ is an emotional cello-driven alternative record, whereas Happy Hollow blends a horn section with religious apathy. I recently picked up the group’s first record, Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes, and am pleasantly surprised. Don’t let the shitty 90s album cover fool you; this record is teeming with brutal post-hardcore tracks similar to At the Drive-In. Although it might not be as polished as later records, Cursive starts strong with their 1997 debut, and is worth unearthing if you have the chance.

Artist: B.A.K.E.R.
Album: B.A.K.E.R. 2 (Bullshit Always Kills Everything Real): The Adventures of Fantastic Mr. Baker
Coments: Maryland emcee B.A.K.E.R spills the entirety of his soul over 56 full tracks dwelling on themes of insanity, heartbreak, paranoia and suicide in what feels more like an audio novel than a mixtape. This really plays out like an epic journal written by someone who puts no limits on their artistic integrity, and the beat selection is top choice.

Janey Criss
Assistant Editor
Artist: Phantogram
Album: Nightlife
Comments: Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel said that mini LPs are the future of music. I think EPs are where it’s at, personally. Anyway, this one is a brilliant example of either. It features “Make A Fist,” which became a song obsession of mine after the duo recorded it at Daytrotter. “Turning Into Stone” is a shining trophy of Josh Carter’s mastermindedness, and “Nightlife” is the most hip exploration in using emotion as a creative medium I’ve heard since being introduced to Future Islands. This short record has something for everyone who loves pretty, thick tones. I promise it’ll make your sound system sound better than it is.

Lady Gaga has been working on two new major projects.  For her directorial debut the superstar is currently working on her upcoming TV special “A Very Gaga Thanksgiving” and her brand new music video for the track “Marry the Night”. 

The holiday TV special will feature performances from Lady Gaga as well as a sit down interview with Katie Couric.  The two will discuss her career and her relationships.

“Been up all night editing my first TWO films as director!  Marry the Night Video + “A Very Gaga Thanksgiving” the 2nd airing on thanksgiving! (sic)” she tweeted.

Lady Gaga performed her new song “Marry the Night”, last night, on the UK version of The X Factor.  Ofcom, the UK communications regulator, received multiple complaints on the performance.  Gaga performed the opening of the song from inside a confessional box in front of a large crucifix.  She then exited the booth and appeared as a decapitated corpse, singing with her head in what seemed to be her hands.  The 25-year-old singer then later reappeared wearing a black lace leotard and fishnet tights for the finale. 

“I performed Marry the Night last night on X Factor.  So fun!  ThankYou UK Monsters for all your love! (sic)”  she later tweeted.

Matt Fox
Assistant Editor
Artist: The Mars Volta
Album: De-Loused in the Comatorium
Comments: This throwback of an album was unearthed this week solely out of my want to listen to “Televators” on proper speakers. After getting said fix, I figured I would listen to the entire album, proving to be the best decision of my week. Their blistering in-your-face guitar work matched with Cedric Bixler-Zavala’s flawless vocals makes for what I consider the group’s best album to date.

Janey Criss
Assistant Editor
Artist: Pan
Album: Post Rock is Not Dead
Comments: This 7-song ep is sweet, simple and easy on the ears. Initially, I was frustrated at the lack of vocals, but, in the end, it wins hearts. The title couldn’t be more fitting. Skinny drums sound like pristine home recordings and, delightfully, with snares that are warm and dissipating instead of ringing and abrupt (something that annoys me about some post-rock bands). Guitars are layered without trickery or complication, and bass is merged within them as a proper frequency placeholder. The whole sound reminds me of Thursday nights in the late 90s – of bands like Slingshot Episode and Hot Water Music, but with some smoother transitional elements (like The Get Up Kids sometimes adopted), that really allow the record to flow and leads to humbly shine.

Artist: Stainless Steele
Album: Straight Jacket Time Killin [link]
Comments: A myriad blend of spaced out, lo-fi, deconstructed breakbeat production laced with the cold vocal stylings of indie emcee Stainless Steele.

 

Ashley Adams
Contributor
Artist: Kimbra
Album: Vows
Comments: I love Kimbra, and Vows is a new sound of love. At the age of 21, Kimbra Johnson is a singer/songwriter, and with a sound so unique and soulful you’ll forget all about her age. Vows was released on September 2, 2011; it’s soothing, relaxing, and makes you want to dance all at the same time. This album is awesome for anyone in love or looking for love, the tracks pretty much paint the picture of modern romance.

30 Seconds To Mars, fronted by actor/singer Jared Leto, won two MTV European Music Awards yesterday:  Best Alternative Act and Best World Stage.  The band’s last album This is War was released in 2009 and the emo quartet has been touring on it since.

The endless touring has paid off.  According to Punknews.com the band will be inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for “the most shows played during a single album cycle”.  Since the album released they have circled the world many times and played on six continents and in almost sixty countries.

30 Seconds To Mars will soon play their 300th show which snags them the record.  And the tour still isn’t over; they play Poland tonight then throughout Europe through December and finish the year with two shows in New York.

Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter of the late Michael Jackson today.

The judge stated that Murray will be remanded with no bail until November 29th when he will be sentenced.  Up until this point Murray was free during the entire period of the trial with the judge stating he is innocent until proven guilty.

The 58-year-old former physician of the late King of Pop showed no emotion as the unanimous verdict was read.  Jackson’s mother Katherine also seemed to show no emotion, as directed by the court, until after the verdict was read, but later hugged lead prosecutor David Walgren.

Outside the Los Angeles Airport Courthouse hundreds of people gathered cheering once the verdict was read.

Murray faces up to four years in prison, but could get off with probation.  Both the prosecution and defense will file their recommendations, but it is up to Judge Pastor to decide Murray’s fate.

Britney Spears seems eager to return to movies, but this time with a little more edge.

“Definitely next year I am going to take a different route,’ she is quoted as saying by British newspaper The Sun. “I see myself being a detective, assassin or even a bad girl.”

Spears’ first starring role in the film “Crossroads” in 2002 didn’t seem to launch her acting career.  The film also starred Dan Aykroyd and Zoe Saldana.  Saldana went on to star in major blockbusters like Star Trek and Avatar.  Spears did land a guest role on the hit sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” in 2008 which gave the show some of their highest ratings.

The pop phenomenon is still in the middle of her Femme Fatale tour.  The star recently finished her UK dates and was supposed to host a party at Mahiki in London on Monday, but skipped the party and apparently returned to her hotel room instead.

Bono seems to be questioning the future of U2.  The band’s two year long tour wraps up this year and it seems like the frontman might be burned out.

”I’m not so sure the future hasn’t dried up,” he told Rolling Stone. “It’s quite likely you might hear from us next year but it’s equally possible that you won’t.”

Bono, a founding member of the mega group since 1976, claims he would like to spend more time with his family.  The singer is married to Alison Hewson and they have four children together.

“We have so many [new] songs, some of our best. But I’m putting some time aside to just go and get lost in the music,” he explained.  “ Want to take my young boys and my wife and just disappear with my iPod Nano and some books and an acoustic guitar.”

The constant touring and work on the re-release of Achtung Baby might be a big cause behind the questioning of the bands future.

“Ironically, being forced to look back at this period reminds me of how we might re-emerge for the next phase,” he said. “And that doesn’t mean that you have to wear some mad welder’s goggles or dress up in women’s clothing. Reinvention is much deeper than that.”

Sir Paul McCartney and new bride Nancy Shevell enjoyed a second wedding ceremony in the U.S.

The couple married earlier this month in London, but Shevell who is from New York wanted to celebrate closer to home.  The newlyweds celebrated at the Bowery Hotel in Manhattan on Friday night.

Some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry joined them including: Jon Bon Jovi, Dave Grohl, James Taylor, Keith Richards and his wife Patti Hansen, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel, Ralph Lauren, Barbara Walters and New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.  John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono also made a surprise appearance. 

Shevell, 51, looked amazing in a royal blue knee length dress and single buttoned jacket.  McCartney, 69, wore a navy suit and striped tie.

The party took place in one of the hotel’s private rooms with a vegetarian menu and champagne.  The couple and their friends danced to Motown most of the night.

“Nancy looked so overjoyed (and sort of happily overwhelmed) by the outpouring of joy for them. They held hands and took photos as made their way to the car,” a source told Us Weekly.

Taylor Swift is still amazed that T.I. agreed to perform with her during her show in Atlanta for the Speak Now tour. 

The country musician has been on tour now since February.  To keep things fresh a number of other stars have joined her on stage including Usher and Justin Bieber.

Rapper T.I. joined her on stage earlier this month for a duet on her song “Live Your Life”. 

“Well, I called T.I. the night before the show, so I felt like it’s such short notice that [he wouldn't do it with me], and he’s just like, ‘Hey, yeah, sure,” she explained.  ”And it was just amazing. I was so excited ’cause I’m such a fan and I thought, ‘This is such short notice, this is so ridiculous, that I’m asking him to do this the night before. And he’s like, ‘I’ll be there.’ And he showed up for sound check and we were all just so star-struck.”

Swift, 21, has also featured guest spots by Nicki Minaj and B.O.B. during her tour.  She has been listening to rap music since she was young and feels like this is a dream come true.

”I’m a huge hip-hop fan, and it’s been so amazing to have so many incredible artists come out and to get to sing the hooks on their songs that I’ve been blasting in my car for the last couple years,”  she told MTV News. “It’s been awesome. I couldn’t have asked for more amazing special guests on this tour, and we’re not finished yet.”

Innovative concert and festival producers Insomniac have announced that the world’s top musical and artistic talents will return to Las Vegas next year for the “16th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival”.  This past June more than 230,000 fans gathered at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the show. 

“When Insomniac decided to produce EDC in Las Vegas last June, we knew we were working with the ideal venue but we weren’t sure how our fans would react,” said Insomniac President and CEO Pasquale Rotella. “But after seeing more than 230,000 people show up to enjoy our show we knew we picked a City and venue that serves as the perfect home for the largest electronic music festival in North America.”

“We are thrilled to welcome the Electric Daisy Carnival back to Las Vegas and to Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” said Chris Powell, president of LVMS. “EDC in 2011 provided a tremendous boost to our local economy. Additionally, the promoter of EDC, Insomniac, demonstrated that it operates a well-organized, safe and secure event. The people at Insomniac are proven professionals, and we’re excited to work together to create an unforgettable EDC in 2012 here at LVMS.”

EDC Las Vegas will be presented in 2012 as a Las Vegas Signature Event. “Las Vegas Events is proud to add Electric Daisy Carnival to its roster of Signature Events,” said Pat Christenson, President of Las Vegas Events. “We look forward to working with Insomniac on the development of EDC Las Vegas.”

Insomniac prides themselves on enhancing their concerts and festivals with state-of-the-art lighting design, large-scale art installations, interactive circus and theatrical performances, and audience participation.

Earlier this week, we chatted with the members of up and coming indie Electro artists Kid Savant. What followed was a brief, confusing mesh. We now present to you, unadulterated and unedited, that very confusing mesh.

The Silver Tongue: You guys are releasing your much anticipated debut EP, ‘Drop it on Stereo’ on Oct 24th. How long have you guys been officially been working together, or rather, at what point did you guys start considering yourselves kid savant?

Kid Savant: Depends. What time is it now?

TST: So, your record is being produced by Sylvia Massy (R.E.M, Tool, Deftones, Prince). What’s that like?

KS: It was like a wet fist at the end of a hot kiss.

TST: Can you describe your experience working on the video for “Four Years”?

KS: We had a fifth member to the band that’s out there in the desert somewhere. We hope he survives and comes back to us in Brooklyn.

TST: You guys have said you’re fans of animal collective. That comes across when listening to your record. Who are your other influences?

KS: The burrito vender down the street.

TST: Who have you guys been listening to recently?

KS: I like listening to what people say on the subway. Latest pervsdropping: An old man says to an old lady, vehemently and indignantly, ‘She coughed right in my face… So I coughed right back in her face!’

TST: What was your experience like on tour with The Humans?

KS: Finding out what it means to pull.

TST: What was the writing and recording process like for Drop it on Stereo?

KS: It was like eating chocolate ice-cream whilst on the loo for maximum efficiency.

TST: How long did it take to conceptualize and develop the record?

KS: About an hour and a half.

TST: What song do you think changed the most over the course of developing the album?

KS: The one that we didn’t include.

TST: What have you guys got planned for the launch party at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on Oct 14th?

Sharon Osbourne has removed her breast implants after a leakage scare.

Following the incident, Osbourne decided it was time to have the implants taken out, stating that she did not want them in her body anymore.

“One morning I woke up and one of my boobies was kind of much longer than the other.  So I’m thinking, this isn’t right”, Osbourne stated.

The implant had leaked into the wall of her stomach.  She states that she is now happy with her implant free body and that she feels back to her normal self.

“Now I’m all me.  I don’t feel like I have a waterbed laying on my chest anymore.”

Now that the implant scare has been resolved, Osbourne has other things on her mind like her son’s engagement.  Jack Osbourne got engaged to actress Lisa Stelly in September.

“I like Lisa so much because my son absolutely adores her.”

Robert Pattinson is supposedly recording his own album.  The 25-year old Twilight star is looking to add musician to his resume and is working on his first record before returning to promoting his latest movie Breaking Dawn.

An insider told US Weekly, “Rob has been kicking a few original songs around for a long time, but his schedule didn’t allow it.”

The Brit has reportedly recorded two songs:  “Never Think” which he co-wrote with his friend Sam Bradley and “Let Me Sign” for the original  soundtrack.

“The album Rob will make will be guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop,” a second source added.  “Like a stripped down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.”

Pattinson even has jamming sessions in his hotel room while filming the series in Vancouver and other locations.

His co-star Jackson Rathbone claims the star loves to ‘play the blues’.

“He can hold his own on the guitar.  We enjoyed jamming together when we had time.  Very humble and quiet guy.”

Pop superstar Rihanna has recently filed a lawsuit over the purchase of her $6.9 million Beverly Hills home.  The 23-year old Bajan singer bought the home in 2009 and has now discovered multiple defects that the seller did not make her aware of at the time.

TMZ reported that the singer purchased the home believing it was in good condition.  But she is claiming that the woman that sold her the home lied about multiple problems with the construction.

Issues with the million dollar home include waterproofing defects, evidence of water intrusion and other construction defects.

The “Love the Way You Lie” singer’s house was hit by a rainstorm in 2010 according to court documents causing water to leak into many of the rooms resulting in significant damage.

She claims, “The actual value of the property at the time of purchase, taking into consideration the extensive construction defects, was millions of dollars less.”

Rihanna is not only suing the former owner, but the inspector, real estate agents involved at the time of the sale and engineers who worked on the home.
