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 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

Apr 15 Fourteen Fine Tunes from 2014
Rachael Price, the great granddaughter of Seventh Day Adventist leader George McCready Price, is a superb vocalist and this song has a ‘70s classic pop structure. This is a band that displays retro influences without smelling like a pet rock.

Apr 15 Not With The Band: Is The End Of The Big Festivals Coming Soon?
Every year they have to top the previous year. A few years ago we had the Tupac hologram, and what could be next? More celebrities paid to pause for selfies with complete strangers? Looking at my Twitter feed, people really love those! In fact some people go to Coachella just for the celebrity sightings.

First Picture Off The CBGB’s Movie Set

The past is always close behind, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, and never more so than from this remarkable picture of Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop. No, wait a moment! An incredible simulation off the equal parts dreaded and loathed “CBGB’s: The Movie”.

Is it too early to say I hate CBGB’s The Movie? I think not and indeed I am happy and proud to begin the I hate the damn show movement without prevarication and doubt because. Well, lett’s start at the top here…

Malin Akerman? I LOVED her in “Watchmen”, actually I loved everybody in “Watchmen” . The young Swede is a good actress and attractive enough by normal standards, but by Debbie stardards? I just don’t see it folks, sorry.

As for Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop… he has a funky druggy looks down, but Taylor is a Cali boy, he is all laid back dumbness and he looks it. He looks like a sweet simple soul and that’s alright but not for Iggy Pop, the Detroit Wildman of rock who stuck on eyeliner and a codpiece only so he could sing louder.

Of course, the past is also far and close at the same time and the 1970s were ultimately a very cynical age. However CBGB’s play it they are honor bound to suck big time. For one thing, we all have our own memories of those years, and for another it was a difficult era in which to maintain your balance between rampant ego, rampant rampants and hardcore post-rock blathering.

Somebody should do a Lester Bangs movie, it would be a lot more fun than CBGBs. The problem with CBGBs is the huge chasm between what it thinks it was and what it was.  It thinks it was a serious artistic assault on rock and roll but if that is true it is true as a musical minimalistic rock and roll adhesive

Dropkick Murphy’s At Terminal 5, Wednesday, March 13th, 2013 Reviewed

"You're embarrassing yourself," Ken Casey mutters after an impromptu "Let's Go Rangers" cheer erupted at Terminal 5 during Dropkick Murphy's own personal St. Patrick's Day party. The Boston Celtic band and heir apparent to the Pogues crown as the best of the Irish rock bands do get on well with New Yorkers… but not about everything.
