The Problem With Music About 9/11

Is composing a piece of music linked to 9/11 a straightforward means of evoking a type of uncomplicated emotional reaction? Is this disaster a safe “hook” to hang any vaguely sad or lamenting music that actually has nothing to do with the event? – The Conversation

Stream Militarie Gun’s Great New EP All Roads Lead To The Gun II

Last year, when everything shut down, Regional Justice Center leader Ian Shelton started a new project called Militarie Gun, and he posted a two-song demo on Bandcamp. Shelton’s Militarie Gun songs weren’t much like the fast and brutal hardcore of RJC. They were still loud and heavy and angry — still hardcore — but they also had melodies and hooks and ’90s-style noise-rock riffs. Militarie Gun soon became a full-on band, and eventually, a Stereogum Band To Watch. Today, they’ve released their th...

Why Bach Is So Compelling

To appreciate the music of Bach, it can be instructive to understand both the mechanics and the mechanic: the musical systems, and the man himself – setting aside any received wisdom about his purported brilliance. – Aeon

Southern Rock Opera Turns 20

On Jan. 14, 1963, newly elected Gov. George Wallace stepped to the podium in Montgomery, Alabama and gave an inaugural address that included a phrase — “segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever” — that stands as one of the most putrid rallying cries ever spoken by a public official against racial equality in America.

Colleen Green On How Dogs, Weed, The Pixies, & More Influenced Her New Album Cool

In the year 2021, being a bona-fide “grownup” has never looked more disjointed. Some 30-somethings are married with mortgages and kids. Others, not so much. If you’re in the latter camp, you definitely aren’t alone (thanks to two recessions and a pandemic), but that doesn’t mean you won’t spin out about where you “should” be from time to time. This strain of millennial existentialism is plenty familiar to lo-fi troubadour Colleen Green — in fact, she released an entire album on the subject in 20...

Liars’ Angus Andrew has teamed up with Gone To Color, the duo of Tyler Bradley Walker and Matt, for a new single to raise money for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. “Many moons ago Tyler and Matt (GTC) sent me some instrumentals, one of which was titled ‘Suicide.’ Tragically, as circumstance would have it, an old friend of mine had just taken their life, so the timing was intense,” Andrew says. “Despite grieving with very raw emotions, I tried to c...

Tyson Beckford Eviscerated Kim Kardashian In Patois For Insinuating He’s ‘Gay’ After He Allegedly Pounded Her Papaya In The Past

Iggy Pop & Matt Sweeney – “European Son” (The Velvet Underground Cover)

On the forthcoming tribute album I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to the Velvet Underground & Nico, a whole lot of great artists come together to cover every song on the Velvet Underground’s classic 1967 debut. The late Hal Willner started work on the compilation before he died of COVID-19 last year, and the album features some truly intriguing combinations of songs and musicians. We’ve already heard Kurt Vile doing “Run Run Run,” Matt Berninger doing “I’m Waiting For The Man,” and Courtney Barnet...

µ-Ziq & Mrs Jynx – “The Secret Garden”

Mike Paradinas, the Planet Mu label boss who records music under the name µ-Ziq, has announced a new album called Secret Garden with Hannah Davidson, aka Mrs Jynx. “I’ve always thought Hannah’s melodic sensibilities chime well with my own,” Paradinas says, “and I’ve wanted to collaborate with her for a long time, since [her 2010 album] Shark Carousel in fact, because she’d written some melodies that I wish I had.”

Rockin’ The Suburbs Turns 20

The “Rockin’ The Suburbs” video was doing a lot. As the lead single and title track from Ben Folds’ debut solo album, the song established new parameters for Folds’ music following his three-album run at the head of North Carolina cult favorites Ben Folds Five. That band had been a strictly piano-bass-drums operation — an oddity within a ’90s alternative rock culture defined by guitars, though maybe less odd at a moment when shit like the swing revival was happening concurrently. (For further re...

Ari Lennox – “Pressure”

The fast-rising R&B star Ari Lennox, part of J. Cole’s extended Dreamville team, released her promising debut album Shea Butter Baby back in 2019. Since then, she’s been delivering a steady supply of one-off singles: “Bussit,” “Chocolate Pomegranate,” “Cognac Eyes.” Today, she’s got a new song that she made with a team of R&B veterans.

Unto Others – “No Children Laughing Now”

The Portland goth metal band Unto Others, formerly known as Idle Hands, are releasing their new album Strength in a couple of weeks. And today, following early singles “When Will Gods Work Be Done” and “Downtown,” they’re back with another new song. “No Children Laughing Now” leans hard into both the deadpan ’80s moodiness and the riffage, and it even manages to drop their new band name into the lyrics. Listen below.
