Sequential’s Pro 3 is a new synth, while the others clone – so how does it stack up?

One person who isn’t just copying Dave Smith is – Dave Smith. Sequential are back with the new Pro-3, a flagship mono/paraphonic synth instrument. Okay, to be fair – a Sequential synth (or Dave Smith Instruments synth) is always going to give you certain predictable elements, if in different combinations. But the Pro-3 at least continues the evolution and refinement of that line. And it offers an extraordinary amount of depth as a result – in the sense that you could really just play with thi...

2hp have a lunchbox modular synth in a literal lunchbox

One thing Eurorack modular doesn’t normally make you say is, “awwwww… cute!” But here’s a modular synth rig that looks as likely to contain a peanut butter and jelly sandwich as a synth. Meet the 2hp Lunchbox, which is literally an oldschool lunchbox with handle. It’s 42hp – which isn’t itself a new idea, as the Erica Synths Pico System does the same. The new idea is putting that in an actual lunchbox, which is adorable – and practical, since it comes with a handle. In order for this...

Can't Keep a Good Hollaback Girl Down: The 15th Anniversary of 'Love Angel Music Baby'

The 15th-anniversary album offers practically nothing in the way of new content outside of a crisp remaster, but simply framing the record in a 2020 context illuminates the gradually growing goodwill toward it over the last decade and a half. The hooks on this record still sound viable for the pop auteurs of today, the visuals still beloved, the Gwen we've since lost to The Voice and the Trolls movie immortalized in her purest form. What Love Angel Music Baby achieved back then was what is now...

Popdose Tribute: Neil Peart — Experience to Extremes

Since the announcement of Neil Peart’s death on January 10, 2020, there’s been an outpouring of tributes, obituaries, and other remembrances of a man who valued his privacy over the trappings of celebrity. Being the drummer and primary lyricist for Rush — a band often called the biggest cult band in the world — came with baggage that Peart probably wished was never there. The zealotry of fans, for one. Being fanatical about a band was not something Peart thought was bizarre or strange. As a t...

The House of Love schedule L.A. stop on anniversary tour

The House of Love, whose swirling, psychedelic Britpop made them a favorite of fans and critics in the late ’80s and early ’90s, have scheduled an 11-date North American tour celebrating their 30-year anniversary. Their rare trip across the Atlantic winds up with a Part Time Punks-sponsored show on May 23 at downtown L.A.’s Palace Theatre. “Over the years we have had many offers to come to North America, but I have sadly never been able to persuade the band,” the band’s co-founder Guy Chadwick s...

Video: Glen Parks, ‘Dogs’

Last year, Amanda Walker decamped from her native Southern California to New Orleans, where she has received a warm welcome. There, she finished work on “Will You Wish for Others,” her debut album under the guise of Glen Parks. And one should not confuse the two. “[Glen Parks] lets me wear mesh shirts with my tits out and fringe down to my ankles in heels with studs, while most of my day clothes are flannels, pants and flat docs,” the artist told last week. “Amanda and Glen have separate close...

Arturia KeyStep Pro is the sequencer keyboard we were waiting for

It’s like a BeatStep Pro, but with keys, but with KeyStep features, but with extras. And it’s still compact. Sounds like Arturia may have a hit on their hands. Remember when we were all repeatedly saying that the KeyStep was cool, but it’d be nice if there were a KeyStep Pro? To their credit, Arturia did keep cramming functionality into their compact keyboard, and that means the latest firmware turned it into a little powerhouse – and one you still might want to consider: Arturia’s KeyS...

Stream: Jonathan Wilson, ‘In Heaven Making Love’

Could anything possibly feel better than being “in heaven making love on a Saturday night?” Jonathan Wilson thinks not. “I wanted to write a song about a perfect evening, something worth remembering,” Wilson says. “A song about carrying letters of rock ’n’ roll freedom all over the world.” “In Heaven Making Love” is the latest slice of Americana regalia from Wilson’s seventh album, “Dixie Blur,” due March 6. The album found the L.A.-based North Carolina native — widely respected for his producti...

Reconsidering Cole Porter

Though he was born into genuine if provincial affluence, with second-tier European royalty filling out the family’s dance card on vacation, he chose to become a working stiff. Reversing the usual American ascent from labor to leisure makes for a more strenuous, and more moving, story. The labor produced a new kind of American lyric, and language. – The New Yorker
