Bleachers – “Drive” (The Cars Cover)

The Cars’ 1984 ballad “Drive” isn’t the band’s best-remembered song, but in its day, it was their biggest hit. The Cars recorded the track with producer Mutt Lange, who’d already conquered the world with AC/DC and Def Leppard. Timothy Hutton directed the song’s video, which starred the supermodel Paulina Porizkova, who would later marry Cars leader Ric Ocasek. The song peaked at #3 on the Hot 100, one spot higher than the Cars’ second-biggest hit “Shake It Up.” It’s a pretty good song that repre...

In an interview on Jamey Jasta’s podcast The Jasta Show released yesterday, Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds volunteered that he regrets touring with Disturbed for Mayhem Festival in 2008.

Artist To Watch: BabyTron

“Nah, I wouldn’t scam your mother, probably not.” Michigan rapper BabyTron tells me this with an enigmatic smile on his face while we sit at Paul’s Da Burger Joint on the Lower East Side. Tron is in New York to promote his new album Bin Reaper 2, released last week. Earlier in the day I tried to take the 21-year-old and his friends to a ramen place.

As she releases an album inspired by Girl, Interrupted, the US indie icon reveals how a childhood kidnapping and her repressive southern childhood left her with PTSDIn Los Angeles, it’s early and overcast. “It has that six-in-the-morning feel,” says Aimee Mann, eternally droll, from a home office wallpapered in fruity foliage. “So it’s been hard to get going.” Drab weather demands good knitwear, and Mann has paired thick-rimmed round glasses the size of ashtrays with a brown woollen sweater vest...

Astral-plane bass wizard Thundercat and future Red Hot Chili Peppers opening act Thundercat released his nerded-out seduction anthem “Dragonball Durag” way back in February of 2020, and conditions are only now returning to the point where he gets to go out and play that song in front of people. Last night, that’s what he did. Thundercat was the musical guest on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show. While Thundercat’s music has gone in a lot of different directions over the years, it’s based in jazz.

Daddy’s Hangout Week 9 2021 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 9 of the 2021 NFL season as we are officially at the halfway mark of the year. Last week was probably my worse one I’ve ever had seen my Week 8 record was 2-5. My overall record dipped to 40-27 and my winning percentage dropped from 63.3 down to 59.7%. My winning percentage dropped below 60%, so that means I have a lot of making up to do. The Arizona Cardinals are no longer undefeated as the Packers defeated the Cardinals on Thursday night. The Cincinnati Bengals fell to the New ...

Watch IDLES Make Their American TV Debut With A Big, Showy Kimmel Performance

In the past few years, the British quasi-punks in IDLES have become a reliable festival draw on both sides of the Atlantic, and now they’ve reached the point where they’re getting booked to play on American television. IDLES’ entire appeal is based on the spectacle of their live show, and that spectacle translates pretty well to TV. On last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, IDLES got a chance to prove it.

Chicago Symphony Comes Through Lockdowns With A $1.4 Million Surplus

“(The orchestra) turned a $4.4 million operating deficit into a $1.6 million surplus by cutting expenses deeper than revenue fell during the pandemic-struck fiscal year ended June 30. The black ink was the first in five years, a stretch that included a musicians’ strike.” – Crain’s Chicago Business

Diana Ross: Thank You review – an anaemic comeback that should have been great

With disco enjoying one of its periodic moments in the sun, a supremely classy 21st-century reboot was possible. But this isn’t itIn 1982, Diana Ross was interviewed by Smash Hits magazine. Her presence in among the breathless coverage of Duran Duran and Haircut 100 was testament to her continued commercial success two decades on from the Supremes’ first hit. She talked a little about that band’s 60s heyday, but, as befitting an artist who had just enjoyed two platinum albums stuffed with Top 10...

Sea Oleena – “Untethering”

Montreal-based Charlotte Oleena, bka Sea Oleena, self-released her endlessly dreamy Weaving A Basket album last year. A couple weeks from now Cascine is reissuing the record — an excellent pairing of artist and label — and to mark the occasion, Oleena has unearthed an additional track from the Weaving A Basket sessions. It’s called “Untethering,” and you are liable to get lost in its ambient folk reverie. Bask in the song’s glow below.

Age Of Apocalypse – “The Patriot”

The excellently named Age Of Apocalypse come from the same Hudson Valley, New York hardcore scene that’s already given us bands like Mindforce. AOA came together during the pandemic, releasing their demo The Way in 2020 and somehow developing serious buzz even before they could actually play live shows. Even without the catharsis of a live show, it was always fully obvious that this band had riffs. Pretty soon, we’ll get to hear a whole album’s worth of them.

In A Daydream – “The Romantic Egotist”

Bryan Porter leads the Detroit-based “emo art rock” quartet In A Daydream. They’re self-releasing their debut album This Side Of Purgatory next month, and its lead single “The Romantic Egotist” portends good things. Porter says the song was inspired by Elliott Smith, the Beach Boys, and early 2000s emo, all of which comes through over the course of these four ambitious minutes. It strikes me as a more theatrical and explosive spin on the ultra-poppy emo sound advanced by the likes of Oso Oso. ...
