In 2016 a YouTuber found that when he opened his car's glove compartment, it made a squeak that sounded like a light jazz saxophone riff. Last month, a musician named The Kiffness sampled the sound and used it in a new song, which he played in his car, a Honda Jazz. — Read the rest

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 6 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 6 of the 2021 NFL season. As of now, we still have the Arizona Cardinals as the only undefeated team in the league. The big news coming out of the NFL was the leaked Jon Gruden emails, which lead to his resignation. After a 3-0 start, Las Vegas dropped their last two games and are now without a coach. My record from last week was 5-2, which should have been 6-1. Still don’t know why I had the Chiefs beating the Bills when I was telling everyone the opposite. My overall mark jumpe...

Watch Kelly Clarkson Cover Beck’s “Dreams”

Almost 20 years ago, Kelly Clarkson made the difficult transition from singing-contest winner to delightful pop star. More recently, Clarkson made the similarly difficult transition from delightful pop star to delightful daytime talk-show host, and she’s made her pop-star chops a big part of that. On every episode of her show, in a segment called Kellyoke, Clarkson covers a different song, seemingly chosen at a whim. A couple of weeks ago, we posted her version of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The Silen...

Sutton-Smith—Intro to Stephenson, PTMC

William Stephenson The Play Theory of Mass Communication (1987 edition) (orig. 1967) from the introduction by Brian Sutton-Smith (1987): The difficulty with the notion of subjective play is that there is very little systematic scholarship on how to think about it. Most modern play theory is about observable behavior, and even that which deals with subjective largely about the way in which the possession of these competencies is of functional value in school or real life adaptation.

Adele – “Easy On Me”

She’s baaaaack. As confirmed yesterday, Adele will release 30, her fourth album, next month. This is a follow-up to one of the only true pop-music blockbusters of this century. Adele’s last album, 2015’s 25, sold more than three million copies in its first week, so there are a lot of expectations for this new one. (Adele is actually 33 now, so the album is definitely late, but she was apparently 30 when she started work on it.) Today, Adele has finally released the LP’s lead single “Easy On Me.”...

Todd Haynes’ Velvet Underground Documentary Is A Vivid Portrait Of A Transformative Band

When the Velvet Underground performed around New York in the 1960s, they weren’t the most popular band. “They had this off-putting aura, you know? Yikes, they were scary,” says Martha Morrison, guitarist Sterling Morrison’s wife, as she remembers one of their concerts at Cafe Bizarre for Todd Haynes’ new documentary, The Velvet Underground. Then, actress Mary Woronov’s jaw drops as she remembers the night that they came to Andy Warhol’s Factory in all black attire and performed “Heroin” early on...

Ich hatte 7 Jahre lang keine Periode – wegen zu viel Sport & wenig Essen

Letzten Monat – während meines ersten Urlaubs seit der Pandemie – bekam ich unerwartet meine Tage. Für die meisten anderen Leute wäre das wohl ein kleines oder großes Ärgernis gewesen; für mich war es ein Grund zum Feiern. Wegen eines Syndroms namens RED-S (relative energy deficiency in sport, z. Dt.: „relativer Energiemangel im Sport“) hatte ich zu dem Zeitpunkt seit sieben Jahren keine Periode mehr gehabt. Die Hauptsymptome eines RED-S sind Amenorrhö (das Ausbleiben der Regel), wenig Energi...

Lone – “InLove2”

Next week, Matt Cutler, the UK producer better known as Lone, will release Always Inside Your Head, his first new album in five years. I have heard Always Inside Your Head, and it’s dope as hell. If you’ve been listening to the advance singles, you’ve probably already figured that out for yourself. Thus far, Lone has shared the early tracks “Hidden By Horizons,” “Mouth Of God,” and “Realise.” They’re all great. Today, we get another one.

Jon Hopkins – “Love Flows Over Us In Prismatic Waves” & “Deep In The Glowing Heart”

Jon Hopkins announced Music For Psychedelic Therapy, a beat-less album that lies somewhere between classical music, ambient, and drone, last month. We’ve already heard the meditative eight-minute track “Sit Around The Fire,” a collaboration with producer and ceremony guide East Forest featuring a recording of the late guru Ram Dass. Today, Hopkins is sharing “Music For Psychedelic Therapy (Excerpt),” which draws from the album’s tracks “Love Flows Over Us In Prismatic Waves” and “Deep In The Glo...

60s hitmakers Manfred Mann: ‘I’ve sung this 10,000 times and never liked it!’

They had screaming fans and transatlantic hits as part of the 60s’ British invasion – an unlikely result for a band of jazz and blues heads. Still touring as the Manfreds, they look back on one of the strangest catalogues in UK popIn an office in the middle of Pinewood Studios, former members of Manfred Mann are discussing their EP The One in the Middle. It was recorded in 1964, at the height of their first flush of fame – between the first and second sessions for the EP, their single Do Wah Did...

Hyd – “The Look On Your Face”

Hayden Dunham, the co-creator and face of QT, is releasing her debut solo EP as Hyd in a few weeks, which she worked on with the likes of A. G. Cook, Caroline Polachek, umru, and more. We’ve heard two of the EP’s four songs already, “No Shadow” and “Skin 2 Skin,” and today we’re getting a third, “The Look On Your Face,” which was produced by Cook and has a burbling, fractured chorus built around a tinny beat and Hyd’s emo-ish delivery.

Country Music Is Losing Some Devoted Fans As The Culture Wars Rage On

Tori Amos – “Spies”

Tori Amos is a few weeks away from releasing her new album, Ocean To Ocean. So far, we’ve heard “Speaking With Trees,” and now Amos is sharing the lush, orchestral “Spies.” It’s actually a cheeky peek into the Amos home in Cornwall, England, where “bats and other creepy-crawlies terrorize” the singer’s daughter Tash. Yikes!

Coldplay: Music of the Spheres review – slipping status prompts a desperate pop pivot

(Polydor)Crafted with one eye firmly on the Spotify stats, the band’s synths-heavy ninth album features BTS and Selena Gomez amid a muddled cosmic conceptIn 2004, Chris Martin wrote a brief essay about U2 for Rolling Stone magazine. They were, he said, “the only band whose entire catalogue I know by heart”, although you didn’t need him to tell you that Coldplay were a band created in U2’s image. Like U2, who spent their early years being sneered at by the post-punk cognoscenti, Coldplay were nev...

Band To Watch: Real Lies

It all started with an A4-sized piece of paper. It was posted in a London shop window, and it advertised a “must-see property”: a detached, five-bedroom house for rent. The house was nestled in between the East and West Reservoirs in Woodberry Down, so the words “has lake” were scrawled on the page in pencil. As soon as Kev Kharas and Tom Watson spotted the ad 12 years ago, everything was about to change.
