Republic Records Bans Use Of The Word “Urban” Within Company

Over the decades, the music industry has shuffled through countless euphemisms for what essentially amount to categorization by race. Sometimes it has been quite literal: "Juke Box Race Records" was the actual post-WWII name of the Billboard chart now known as Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, an institution that has also in various eras been known as … More »

Rated R Turns 20

"Nicotine, Valium, Vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol!" Josh Homme incessantly repeated this recipe -- topped off with a dusting of "C-c-c-c-c-cocaine!" -- to kick off Queens Of The Stone Age's second album. The music behind Homme's refrain was as dunderheadeded as it comes: a rock band mostly banging on one note ad nauseam, briefly interrupted … More »

How Ornette Coleman Radically Reimagined Jazz

Conventional jazz harmony is religiously chord-based, with soloists improvising within each key like balls pinging through a pinball machine. Coleman, in contrast, imagined harmony, melody, and rhythm as equal constituents. He sometimes said that he played around a melody, in such a way that he could hear it was there, but some listeners could not. – The New Republic
