Hase Yurina/Ochiai Yurika, June 15, 2020

I have a con to put together and thus not much time, but it helps to put all the relevant things together in one place. Obviously this is my point of view so take that with a grain of salt, but I’ve been a seiota for a while now, and you can’t fairly interpret what 2020’s Hase Yurina said without knowing her relatively turbulent history. To be clear, I think she is a victim in the end, and I wish her the best, as she’s gone through some crazy patches in life generally, inside and outside...

Jeff is on The Jazz Session

In a turning of the tables, I am the guest on this week’s episode of The Jazz Session. Jason Crane is the host and he has the longest running jazz interview podcast. He is loads of fun to talk to and we hit plenty of non-jazz topics. Hear it here: or in any usual podplaces. I would like to note however that we recorded the interview on May 14 or 15, about 10 days before the murder of George Floyd.

New Adam Schlesinger tribute album features covers by Rachel Bloom, Charly Bliss, Sarah Silverman, Nada Surf, and many many more

Adam Schlesinger has long been a songwriting hero of mine, and I was absolutely heartbroken when I learned that he had passed away from COVID-19 complications in early April. He was someone who genuinely elevated the craft of pop songwriting to an artform, without precious or self-important about it. Now, friends of Schlesinger from across the spectrum of his work — from rock music to Broadway to movies and TV — have come together to put a 31-song tribute album, covering his whole discography: A...

Basement Waterproofing Tips for Home Owners in Wilmington

When it rains or snow, you can be sure there will be a lot of water lying around your perimeter. Droplets of water and balls of ice are typical inhabitants of roof spaces and other areas of the home during the wet season. Basement waterproofing is not a daily chore, but once you do have to get it done, it could be a bit of a hurdle. Simple home repair and improvement, such as painting your walls or fixing in drywall, could be a walk in the park for the handyman, but when it comes to waterproof...

Jeff Tweedy Pledges To Donate 5% Of His Songwriting Revenue To Racial Justice Organizations

Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy has posted a lengthy statement calling for an industry-wide reparations initiative. "The modern music industry is built almost entirely on Black art," he writes.

Why Satie Might Be The Perfect Composer For Now

It might seem an extraordinary thing that a late 19th/early 20th century French composer — and one whose music has had a history of having been dismissed for its seeming simplicity, seeming naiveté and seeming single-mindedness — resonates so effectively in our confused, upside-down world. But, then, in his strange music, his irreverent prose, his inexplicable mannerisms, his radical attitudes and his incomprehensible inconsistencies, Satie may just be what we need. – Los Angeles Times

Interview: Apple’s Schiller says position on Hey app is unchanged and no rules changes are imminent

In a brief call today about Basecamp’s Hey email app from the iOS App Store, Apple’s Phil Schiller told me that there would currently be no changes to its rules that would allow the app to continue to be offered. “Sitting here today, there’s not any changes to the rules that we are considering,” Schiller said. “There are many things that they could do to make the app work within the rules that we have. We would love for them to do that.” The call came after several days of public scrutiny of App...

Almost Famous cast and creators reunite for 20th anniversary podcast series

Almost Famous (2000) is one of my favorite rock and roll moves of all time. Director and writer Cameron Crowe did a masterful job with his semi-autobiographical story of a young teen music journalist on his first assignment from Rolling Stone in the 1970s. It's a lovely, funny, and moving film that just feels real. Now, the killer cast, including Kate Hudson, Frances McDormand, Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel, Jimmy Fallon, Patrick Fugit, Jason Lee are joining Crowe, Nancy Wilson of Heart (Crowe's...

How I Co-Wrote An Opera About A Black Policeman’s Son Shot By Another Policeman

Tazewell Thompson, creator, with composer Jeanine Tesori, of Blue, which the Music Critics Association of North America has named best new opera of the year: “I wrote it from an obsessive need and sense of responsibility to tell an intimate story behind the numbing numbers of boys and men who are killed. But here we are now: art imitating life, life imitating art. Unfortunately, the themes in Blue have no expiration date. … Our eyes will never be free of tears.” – The New York Times

Turns Out There Are Benefits To Teaching Harp Online

“With most of the room cut out, there are fewer distractions. When three dimensions collapse into two, there’s a weird intimacy. You can get up close, like ballroom dance partners. You can demonstrate without replacing students in the chair. And you can take copious notes while they play, marking the music like an over-caffeinated octopus. They can’t see that.” – WBUR

We'll Meet Again: how toxic nostalgia twisted Vera Lynn's pop masterpiece

The song’s magic lay in its poignancy – the very quality that has led to Britain’s parochial obsession with the second world warFrom Captain Tom Moore’s chart-topping You’ll Never Walk Alone to Katherine Jenkins’ charity take on Vera Lynn’s We’ll Meet Again – a cover version as grey and sickly as 1940s rationed margarine – 2020 has been a year in which we’ve been reminded, more than ever, that British culture is unable to escape the long shadow of the second world war.
