Apr 16 Rufus Wainwright At The Town Hall, Tuesday, April 15th, 2014, Reviewed
Well hold on one minute here Rufus: I already paid $100 for a ticket, why would I wanna spend more? And even if I did, why would I wanna be hustled all night about it? He’s like a stripper trying to get you into the champagne room

Apr 16 “Violet” At The Roundabout Theatre Reviewed
The score of Violet (music by Jeanne Tesori, book and lyrics by Brian Crawley) melds bluegrass, country, Memphis blues, and rousing gospel. The set design by David Zinn features the look of a mid-century rustic bus station, all in blues. The orchestra is onstage throughout the show

Apr 16 Conor Oberst Live At Gigstock Reviewed
It’s gorgeous and heartfelt, a slow ballad that’s heartbreaking and proves that the man still knows exactly how to play a song so that it tugs at your heartstrings. His guitar skills are phenomenal, and he seems to be more charismatic in his performance than usual.

Apr 16 In Music, Repetition Always Makes Things Better
I have more than once complained about certain music being too repetitive, ‘Music is about repetition’ answered me Iman a long time ago. Yes, he was right, and this new study demonstrates it even more. Dr. Elizabeth Margulis
, associate Professor at Peabody Conservatory of Music at Columbia University decided to do a simple experiment

Apr 16 Morrissey: “World Peace is None of Your Business” New Details!
Year of Refusal was a peach though, so I wont cry too hard. But with a lack of label, morons like Amanda Palmer offering advise and some odd and numerous health issues its a wonder there was any more to be had from the quiffed wizard.

Apr 16 When Kurt Cobain Met William S. Burroughs
Most importantly, I wanted you to know that this request is not based on a desire to exploit you in any way. I realize that stories in the press regarding my drug use may make you think that this request comes from a desire to parallel our lives. Let me assure you that this is not the case

Apr 16 Robert Cray Band’s “In My Soul” Reviewed
Cray sounds soulful but distracted on “Fine yesterday” and neutrally intense on the more bluesy Isaac Hayes “Your Good Thing Is Going To End”. The beat drags a little. The Booker T tribute “Hip Tight Onions” pumps that organ real well and holds a groove for every single minute but it is the exception not the ru

Apr 16 James Blunt Calls Out Damon Albarn
“I was just the only one who didn’t hide my accent. I mean, come on, Damon Albarn, he’s right up there. He’s got an orchard full of plums in his mouth and a silver spoon stuck up his arse.”

Apr 16 Lily Allen Dedicates SheezusTo Amy Winehouse
One of the most difficult things to grasp about drug addiction is that it actually is a real disease and while it feels like a disease you have control over , that control is like cancer remission. Addicts go into remission. And sometimes they never get sick again and sometimes they do and sometimes they die.

Apr 16 10 Songs, Wednesday, April 16th, 2014
West Coast – Lana Del Rey – You know Lana believes this to be the Summer Blockbuster movie of singles with extended lyrical breaks, tempo changes and way too high in the mix drums. And she may be right – B-

Apr 15 Be Here Now; New Album Releases Snapshot Reviews 4-15-14
Built On Glass – Chet Faker – Aussie trip hop mood guy and very very good as well. This album works as sonic sound ambient deep beats thing and works as song, song after song. I bet it sounds awesome with beats: it’s like the percussion reverberates in the back of your head while the songs settle in the front – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+

Apr 15 Ed Sheeran ft Pharrell Williams “SING” Reviewed
I love when Sheeran raps, and though he doesn’t quite get there in this tune, but gets really close. I love it. It has a definite Justin Timberlake-vibe, dancey and upbeat but complex and funky.

Apr 15 EELS ‘Mistakes of My Youth’ , Video Review
the typical boy smoking, drinking, spray painting, fighting and making out with a homeless girl. You know what every 12 year old boy does while on his bike in Idaho or wherever the hell this was filmed

Apr 15 Unlocking the Truth, Best Band Of Coachella 2014
It is hard to believe such darkness can come from 12 year-old kids (I read that they are in 7th grade!), but frontboy Malcolm Brickhouse was playing a mean guitar while being scarier than Ozzy even in his younger days

Justin Bieber: What A Drag It Is Getting Old

By most standards Justin Bieber didn't have a bad 2012:  hit album, sold out tour, millions of fans, hot girlfriend. But it really wasn't that great either. The album was a dog and the tour was a drag, the girlfriend is in transition and his squeaky clean, good guy persona is getting a pummeling.


Liam Gallagher And Dave Sitek? Uh Oh, Beady Eye Go Experimental On Us

I realize I am a chorus of one here, but I vastly prefer Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye to brother Noel's High Flying Bird. Different Gear, Still Speeding. Nothing by Noel's post-Oasis career beats out "Four Letter Word".


I Warned Them, I Begged Them Not To Tease Me: Coldplay Will NOT Take A Three Year Hiatus

Coldplay's Chris Martin promised us he was taking a three year hiatus from touring after the gig in Australia. Now the weasel has the audacity to back out of his promise. He told UK tab the Daily Star: ''I'm fortunate to do what I do and no way do I want to stop. This three-year break idea only came about because I said at a gig in Australia that we might not be back there for three years."
