Premature Evaluation: Adele 30

Maybe I’m saying this because I live in Adele’s adopted city of Los Angeles, or maybe it’s because people my age and younger really like horoscopes and birth charts, but: I’m pretty sure that I believe in the Saturn Return. I’ve never been that plugged into the planets, but the way Adele talks about Saturn Returns in interviews promoting her gut punch of a new album, 30, doesn’t not make me a believer.

Annie Blackman – “Drive”

Annie Blackman continues her string of 2021 singles with a new one today, “Drive.” It’s a rambling road song about the decision of whether to hit the road or not, as Blackman weighs her options between the coasts and decides to stay put. Through all that back-and-forth, Blackman hits on some thoughts about place and our relationship to where we happen to be: “Can’t sweat anything I never thought I’d get to do/ A city’s more than its proximity to you/ The answer’s there, I could know it if I trie...

Davóne Tines Is Transforming The Song Recital — And Maybe Even Classical Singing Itself

The bass-baritone has made programming an art in itself, building evenings around a sermon or a Langston Hughes poem, slipping from Bach to jazz to Julius Eastman to plantation chant to R&B to Caroline Shaw. And, writes Alex Ross, he makes all of it matter. – The New Yorker

Just Mustard – “I Am You”

Just Mustard were one of our Best New Bands Of 2019 based on the strength of their debut album, Wednesday, and it looks like the Irish group is getting ready to follow it up with something new. The band has signed to Partisan Records — home to Fontaines DC, who they’re touring with next year — and today they’re releasing a new single, “I Am You.” It’s a warped and weary and intense drone, as vocalist Katie Bell intones a series of maddening questions: “Can you stay, stain my lip?/ Can you change...

Album Of The Week: Converge Bloodmoon: I

Last month, shortly after the 20th anniversary of Converge’s heavy-music landmark Jane Doe, the world finally learned the identity of the lady on that album cover. Ever since Converge first brought Jane Doe into the world in 2001, that cover art has been a source of fascination. Who was this lady with the statuesque cheekbones and the defiant stare? Was she the subject of the album’s tortured howls? Was she a real person at all?

Downhaul – “One Sick Plan” (Oso Oso Cover)

The Richmond indie band Downhaul, who seem to take equal inspiration from emo and country in a Pinegrove kind of way, released their sophomore album Proof this year. Today they’ve returned with a cover of “One Sick Plan” from Oso Oso’s 2019 stunner Basking In The Glow. The cover was commissioned by No Earbuds, the PR company that represents both bands, as part of their charitable EARBUDZ series. If you like your emo with hooks and twang, you will probably enjoy it.

Gerade in den letzten beiden Jahren ist unser Smartphone der Schlüssel zu so ziemlich allen in unserem Leben geworden.

Drowse – “Wait And Bleed” (Slipknot Cover)

Kyle Bates project Drowse — not to be confused with the Philly hardcore group of the same name — has released a cover of Slipknot’s “Wait And Bleed,” which he recorded for a new compilation from San Francisco record label The Flenser. His take on the 1999 nu-metal track is languid and slowed-down. Here’s what Bates said to Revolver about how he transformed the track:
