UK Royal Mail issues stamps honoring the band Queen

The UK's Royal Mail is issuing a series of 13 stamps honoring the band Queen. This issue follows prior rock stamps celebrating The Beatles and Pink Floyd. From Spin: “It’s hard to put into words what I feel when looking at these beautiful stamps,” Queen guitarist Brian May said in a release. “Since we four precocious boys started out on our quest 50 years ago, our lives have been devoted to making our impossible dream come true.

As America’s Orchestras Remain Closed, In Other Countries They’re Getting Back To Work

From Taiwan to Germany to Spain to Quebec, lockdowns are lifting and orchestras are figuring out ways to make music again. David Patrick Stearns looks into what they’re trying, from Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s Beethoven symphony cycle with the (carefully spaced) Orchestre Métropolitain in a largely empty Montreal hall to Prague’s Collegium 1704 performing Baroque music with masks on (even the woodwinds and singers) to an opera in Salzburg where the characters all hate each other so much that they st...

[FOR PLANTS] Don’t Read This If You’re Human [JUST PLANTS PLEASE]

Let’s be honest: While humanity has done a lot to support the arts, humans themselves make for a terrible live audience. If they’re not coughing or talking or picking their noses, they’re probably tapping at their phones. On Monday, Barcelona’s Liceu opera house offered an intriguing solution to this problem,…Read more...

Album Of The Week: Pottery Welcome To Bobby’s Motel

Welcome To Bobby's Motel is a nonsensical title for Pottery's debut album, which also makes it a perfect title. It is, obviously, a greeting, which is fitting enough, but beyond that you don't really know whether it's supposed to be banal, or evocative, or what. It sounds like an inside joke, which it probably was. More »

A Socially-Distanced Concert Outside. How Did It Work?

Much like those nervously gathered to listen, the program was a little all over the place; but the intimacy of the experience — and our collective hunger to hear just about anything — gave the feeling that audience and performers were conducting the same experiment: just being there. Even before the first notes were played, I found myself getting lost in the music of chitchat and laughter — our own birdsong. – Washington Post

Macht die Pandemie unsere Freundschaften kaputt?

“Ist okay“, sagt eine Freundin zu uns, während sie aus dem Gebüsch krabbelt, in dem sie gerade pinkeln war. „Ich glaube, mich hat irgendwas gestochen… Aber ansonsten geht’s schon.“ „Super“, antwortet meine andere Freundin lachend, während sie ihr Bier auf der Picknickdecke abstellt und sich selbst auf den Weg Richtung Büsche macht. Freundschaften spielen aus verschiedenen Gründen eine wichtige Rolle in unserem Leben: Sie machen uns glücklich und bestätigen unseren Selbstwert. Sie sorgen für ...

Since 2004, Broadrick has been releasing sad, blurry, personal music under the name Jesu. (Jesu is a shifting … More »
