Muse: Simulation Theory, brooding synth-rock

Muse’s new album is inspired by the “simulation hypothesis”, a speculative notion advanced by technologists that we are living in a computer simulation designed by our super-advanced post-human descendants. In this conceptual wormhole every dimension is jumbled up. Now is actually the future. Here is really there. You can eat a cake and still have it. Or make a punchy, focused pomp-rock record about a zany hall-of-mirrors theory — as Muse have tried to do with Simulation Theory. It starts with “Algorithm”, a brooding synth-rocker with John Carpenter-style electronic effects and ominous orchestrations. “This is war with your own creator,” Matt Bellamy wai...

Within Temptation announce new album

Within Temptation have announced their new album, Resist, which is due for a Dec. 14 release. This will be the longest gap between albums of Within Temptation’s career, primed by a personal crisis of inspiration from frontwoman Sharon den Adel. This year, den Adel launched a solo project called My Indigo following a string of events leaving her unable to create a new record for Within Temptation. “When I came back from the tour last time, I went to the studio, like I always do when I come back from a tour, and I wanted to write music again, new stuff. And normally I have a lot of energy and a lot of inspiration, but this time it wasn't there; I didn't have it,&r...

Th...

Paul McCartney releases new music

Two days after his 76th birthday, Paul McCartney released two new songs, which he calls a taste of Egypt Station, a new studio album set for release September 7. "I Don't Know" is a doleful ballad, while "Come On To Me" is fiery, foot-stomping rock song - hear them both below. It's been five years since McCartney's last full-length album, "New", which marked a change in direction for the former Beatle. After a run of records inspired by standards and singer-songwriters, New was full of modern pop sounds.
