Do you miss the band The Civil Wars? Here's Joy Williams' solo single 'Woman'

Do you miss the band The Civil Wars? Here's Joy Williams' solo single 'Woman'

From the album 'Venus': You getting a lady vibe here?

Oh mama! Here is the single "Woman (Oh Mama)" from Joy Williams, one-half of the now-dissolved folk group The Civil Wars.

With hand-claps, chanting, marimba churning and minor harmonies, we're getting a very distinctive Zulu vibe, which may send you reeling toward your copy of "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts."

"Woman" is off of Williams' forthcoming album "Venus," due this summer. Getting a very lady vibe here.

Make your work place more awkward with this new Fifth Harmony video

Make your work place more awkward with this new Fifth Harmony video

Go golfing in platforms

The women in Fifth Harmony bonded, er, banded together for another new music video, this time for single "Worth It" from off of their debut album "Reflection."

Some warnings if you display this work-themed video in your place of business, if you hadn't  screened "Bo$$" -- also job preoccupied -- already:

The women in feminine dress -- skirts and shirts that could be described as "bondage blouses" -- are secretaries, while the women in male dress are the "bosses." The "co-worker" themed singer can't just leave the man with the ticker tape alone.

A signifier of power and status: having your own driver. A very insensitive signifier of power and status: having your own black male driver. Drive safe!

The phrase "I'm worth it" applies to receiving a raise or a starting salary. It also works within the confines of prostitution.

Platforms are terrible golf shoes, but if you're going to play in them, I recommend a club fitting as you wear the sized heels you plan to sport, for proper length and size.

Kid Ink strikes me as middle management rather than exec, and judging from the state of his eyesight, hiring corporations may want to consider bypassing drug testing.

Oh, you don't say Kanye West was a co-producer on Rihanna's new 'Better' song?

Oh, you don't say Kanye West was a co-producer on Rihanna's new 'Better' song?

'B*tch Better Have My Money' could be sung by anyone

"Rihanna, I think the track is great... but can you be sure to add a dark, lengthy and unnecessary parenthetical to the end there?" Kanye probably said.

Rihanna is a bad, bad girl ... or, rather, there is nothing particularly "girl" about "B*tch Better Have My Money," which will likely be adorably edited to be "Better Have My Money" as its added to radio. I want to say this is a foray into a macho-male lyrical mindspace, but who's to say that b*tches don't owe Rihanna any money, y'know?

The trap track -- which will undoubtably be a huge hit for the singer -- was co-produced by West, Roc Nation signee Deputy, Travis Scott and Wonda Girl, approximately three people too many.

It will be featured on Rihanna's next album, her eighth, which has yet to be given a title and release date; it arrives on the heels of another Kanye collab, chill-vibe grower "FourFive Seconds" featuring Paul McCartney, a song which asserts Rihanna knows what day of the week it is.

The hitmaker -- who made a similar banger out of "Pour It Up" -- will perform this new track during the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday (March 29) from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, telecast on NBC.

Rihanna is also one of the lead voice actors in the Dreamworks Animation feature "Home," out in theaters today.

Henry Rollins explains why 'He Never Died,' and those Charles Manson tapes

Henry Rollins explains why 'He Never Died,' and those Charles Manson tapes

Yes, the actor/musician/DJ/performer is 'crotchety,' what of it

AUSTIN - “People write me letters all the time. I do my best to answer but they think we’re pen pals.”

Henry Rollins has a lot to do, y’all, which sometimes makes him "crotchety."

The former Black Flag and Rollins Band singer continues to tour with his spoken word material. He has a column in the L.A. Weekly and Rolling Stone Australia, plus his KCRW radio show and the Henry & Heidi podcast. He’s dropped by for acting cameos on “The Kroll Show,” "RuPaul's Drag Race" and “Adventure Time,” had recurring roles on “The Legend of Korra” and “Sons of Anarchy” and is still out working for his next acting gig. He’s an activist and author and he’s got a three story building just to house all the records he owns. He mostly listens to them all, too.

He just probably doesn’t have time for that demo you handed him; he’s still working out which pressing of “Raw Power” he loves best.  

At SXSW, the punk icon and performer was on the promotional trail for the new horror movie “He Never Died,” in which he stars as… well, a guy who just can’t seem to die. Sitting in the lobby to a downtown Austin hotel, Rollins added punctuation to his sentences with his hands, speaking in long thoughts at rapid tempo, and in third person, dotting his Outdoor Voice with physicality that causes him to shift from one side of the chair to the other just saying the word Twitter.

Below is the abridged version of our interview, on playing a vampire, the indignities of auditions, his relationship to radio and what happened with all that Charles Manson music business.
