Jazz maestro Dave Brubeck has died. He would have been 92 today.

At the Guardian, Brubeck's biographer Philip Clark compiles a list of greatest hits, with video.

Who knows what Brubeck's last words were, but here are the final statements (and tweets) of other musicians, gone too soon.

Grammy nominations are out, with Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean and Taylor Swift leading the way.

Spin, Rolling Stone and Stereogum publish their 50 best albums of the year.

Not to be outdone, the Awl picks 100 fantastic (not great) songs (and more) from 2012.

Dummy picks its top five labels of 2012.

Break out your sharpies: XLR8R reconsiders the art of the mixed CD.

Got writer's block? Electric Literature has the Spotify playlist cure.

RIP Mickey "Guitar" Baker.

Barack Obama is the president. He's also the king of standup and a Zeppelin fan. Watch.

The New York Times profiles Graham Parker.

M.I.A. leaks a new song to fans on Twitter.

Das Racist splits, hipsters weep.

Jack White vs. Lady Gaga vs. tempest in a tabloid.

iTunes makes its way to Russia, Turkey and South Africa.

Shazam thinks it can see the future. Apparently French Montana and Becky G are going to be really, really huge.

Relive the 15 minutes of fame (and helicopters and yachts) that was Kim Dotcom.

Fleetwood Mac announces 35 tour dates for 2013. Tantalizing, St. Louis-friendly routing option on April 12.

Congrats to Alicia Keys, who has just scored her fifth No. 1 album.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds release a new song. Listen.

The "West of Memphis" soundtrack will feature Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Henry Rollins, Band of Horses and the aforementioned Mr. Cave.

Outkast isn't coming back any time soon.

Let's say you're in a band and you somehow save up two grand. (Yeah, I know, but humor me.) What do you spend it on? Hint: Beer and weed is the wrong answer.
