‘Night Teeth’ Review: A Vampire Thriller That’s Too Cut-and-Paste to Have Any Bite

The vampire genre is a lot like a vampire: It has lived for hundreds of years, and every time you think it’s about to die off it gets an infusion of new blood. Since the logistics of neck-biting and blood-sucking are no longer incendiary, a vampire movie, novel, or TV series that strikes a chord will tend to be infused with a tasty metaphor, one that reaches beyond the “erotic” obvious. In the mid-’70s, when the genre had come to seem musty, Stephen King’s “‘Salem’s Lot” (1975) and Anne Rice’s “Interview with the Vampire” (1976) revived it by plugging the...

Musicians on Musicians: CL & Jhené Aiko

Welcome to Rolling Stone’s 2021 Musicians on Musicians package, the annual franchise where two great artists come together for a free, open conversation about life and music. Each story in this year’s series will appear in our November 2021 print issue, hitting stands on November 2nd. “I really want a lot more Asian pop stars,” says CL.

Both artists started making music at a young age, and they’re both still reaching brand-new peaks in their...

The 'I Took a Pill in Ibiza' hitmaker - who referenced the late EDM star on the 2015 hit - has admitted he didn't feel it was right to share the music the pair created together because Avicii was a "perfectionist" and hadn't completed work on the tracks.

‘Zangezur Corridor’ Closer to Realization as Armenia Readies to Normalize Relations With Turkey and Azerbaijan

On October 15, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian, in an online summit of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), declared his country’s readiness to provide both railway and highway connection to Azerbaijan, via southern Armenian territories, that would link mainland Azerbaijan with its exclave of Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. Baku has routinely referred to this overland passage as the “Zangezur corridor,” with a reference to the historical name of what is today Armenia’s Syunik Province (, October 15). Although Pashinian had previously confirmed the plans for the construction of a railway link between two parts of Azerbaijan via the Meghri region of Syunik Province, he had rejected Baku’s demand for an automobile road along the same route (see EDM, May 24).

Album Review – Zac Brown Band’s “The Comeback”

Two things that true country and true hip-hop have in common is how they’re music of the people, and so authenticity and heart matters. You want to believe whomever is performing for you. You don’t want some dude named Clarence who went to a private school pretending he’s a gangster. You don’t have to be out there riding the range and herding cattle like Colter Wall to sing country, but you do want to know there’s conviction from the person who is singing. It’s essential to the magic of the music.
