WizKid & Tems Capture The Essence Of Summer’s Waning Days

Four years ago, this column posed a question: “Can WizKid Conquer The US Pop Landscape He Helped Create?” At the time, American pop music was sounding increasingly African, in no small part thanks to the smash success of Drake’s chart-topping WizKid collab “One Dance.” With “One Dance” and a handful of other tracks on his Views album, Drake — always savvy about interjecting himself into whatever trends he sees popping off — incorporated elements of the Afrobeats sound (not to be confused with Af...

FYA Fest 2022 Has Turnstile, E.Town Concrete, Mindforce, Vein, So Much Hardcore

For years now, most hardcore festivals have booked reunited legends or long-lasting legacy acts as their headliners. In its 2020 edition, for instance, Florida’s FYA Fest had Madball, Integrity, Killing Time, and Disembodied at the top of the bill. But right now, hardcore is in a ridiculously exciting place, and it’s possible to put together a lineup that’s based entirely around young, vital, right-now bands. The next edition of FYA Fest, which returns to Tampa early next year, is basically all ...

Loose Buttons – “Minor Leaguer”

The young NYC rockers Loose Buttons remind me of some of the best guitar-pop bands of the aughts. I have often compared them to the Strokes, but on new single “Minor Leaguer — the latest from their upcoming What’s On Outside — I’m hearing quite a bit of early Arctic Monkeys too, particularly in Eric Nizgretsky’s vocal melody. If that doesn’t entice you, maybe consider director Austin Withers’ roller-hockey-themed music video for the track, shot at Plainville Indoor Sports Arena in Plainville, CT...

Premature Evaluation: Kanye West Donda

It’s not possible to pinpoint the one moment that Kanye West’s brain broke, since brain breakage is generally not a singular dramatic event. But it’s definitely possible to pull up a YouTube video and pinpoint one of the moments that Kanye West’s brain broke. In September of 2009, West was booked to perform on the first episode of The Jay Leno Show, the ill-fated and short-lived experiment in which NBC put Leno on TV every night in prime time. West was there to do “Run This Town” with Jay-Z and ...

Superb, inexpensive microphones built into 12-gauge shotgun shells

When my country band the Delorean Sisters was recording our second album, our phenomenal audio engineer Drew Guido set up a mic stand to record my acoustic guitar—and pulled out the weirdest-looking microphone I'd ever seen. It was one of the ones you see here, made by Brad Martin of "12 Gauge Microphones". — Read the rest

The Outdoor Concerts In Ireland Where Musicians Arrive By Canal And Barge

Sounds gloriously picturesque: “There’s a tall lamp standing on the stone quayside at a lock in rural Co Carlow on a warm and clear evening. Beside it, a cream and green barge is moored, with a mixing desk on the bow and a few cables trailing on to the bank up towards the lamp.” – Irish Times

Historic New Orleans Jazz Site The Karnofsky Shop Destroyed By Hurricane Ida

Hurricane Ida, billed as potentially the strongest hurricane to hit New Orleans since the 1850s, made landfall over the weekend, bringing destruction and at least one death in its wake. The storm also demolished an important building in the history of New Orleans jazz. As 4WWL reports, the former Karnofsky Shop, located at 427 S Rampart St., was reduced to rubble by the storm. The building was central to Louis Armstrong’s musical development and later became the city’s first jazz record shop. It...

Jonathan Richman Impostor Scams Olympia Music Festival

Jonathan Richman, the former Modern Lovers frontman, is a punk and indie legend with a huge cult fanbase, but he’s maybe not the first person you’d expect to hear about someone impersonating for money. But nobody, it turns out, is safe from the scammers. This past weekend, Jonathan Richman was on the bill for LoveOly Summerfest, a festival in Olympia, Washington. It would’ve been Richman’s first show since the pandemic started. But just before the show was set to happen, as Rolling Stone reports...

While it’s not always bad to rely on the comfort of an established relationship, keeping that spark alive for your emotional and physical co...

Wie sich das Homeoffice auf deine Karriere & Psyche auswirkt

2016 bat mich meine Mitbewohnerin, alle fünf Minuten die Maus ihres Laptops zu bewegen, während sie kurz zum Supermarkt huschte. Ansonsten, erklärte sie mir, würden ihre Vorgesetzten sehen, dass ihr Outlook-Icon auf „abwesend“ stand und vermuten, sie würde im Homeoffice nur faulenzen.  Vor dem März 2020 war dieser Verdacht zu Angestellten im Homeoffice weit verbreitet. Viele von uns arbeiteten nur von zu Hause aus, wenn wir „krank genug“ waren, um unsere Kolleg:innen zu nerven, aber auch „ges...
