Two different tribute albums to the classic songbook of Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin were released today. One of them, Revamp, invited a big tent of contributors from the worlds of pop, rock, rap, and R&B; the other, Restoration, is comparatively hermetic, focusing on multiple generations of Elton fans within country music. We’ve already highlighted a few tracks from Revamp contributors like the Killers and Queens of the ...

Spoon’s great 2017 album Hot Thoughts is ripe for remixing, with the most danceable beats and synth-heavy arrangements of Austin band’s long career. They’ve handed the single “Can I Sit Next to You” over to Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys, an initially surprising pairing that eventually makes a cosmic sort of sense, given each artist’s swaggering way with minimalism. Ad-Rock strips the ...

The obvious way to make an El-P/Queens of the Stone Age mashup would be to slap the rapper’s verses over the band’s slinky stoner rock riffs. But El Q, released a few weeks ago by the mashup artist ToToM, is more interesting, instead pitting Queens vocals against beats from El’s long career as a solo artist, Run the Jewels member, and Definitive Jux ...
