Sweeping Promises – “Pain Without A Touch”

Sweeping Promises are a DIY band that formed in Arkansas, properly launched in Boston, moved to Austin during the pandemic and recently settled in Lawrence, Kansas. Last summer they released their debut album Hunger for A Way Out, an, um, promising collection of lo-fi post-punk with an electronic edge. Today the group — core duo Lira Mondal and Caufield Schnug plus live touring drummer Spenser Gralla — has returned with a new single called “Pain Without A Touch,” out domestically through Feel It...

Yebba Is The Real Deal

You could be forgiven for assuming Yebba is British. The singer born Abbey Smith — her stage name is Abbey backwards — is working in a hip-hop-adjacent retro soul realm that, in the 21st century, has been dominated by English singers like Amy Winehouse, Duffy, and Adele. One listen to “Boomerang,” the most decidedly Winehouse-esque throwback on Yebba’s debut album Dawn, is enough to clue you in to Back To Black producer Mark Ronson’s involvement. But no, Yebba is not from the UK. She’s from Arka...

The Life & Music of the Godmother of Rock and Roll, Sister Rosetta Tharpe

When I was a wee lad I was interested in the history of rock and roll. Where did it come from? Who started it? But also when I was wee, there didn’t seem to be a lot of information around, certainly not in my library downtown. But when Muddy Waters died in 1983, I started to understand that rock and roll was sped-up blues, and pieces started to slot together. However, women weren’t part of the equation. (Blame Rolling Stone Magazine). That’s a long way of saying the Sister Rosetta Tharpe...

Pat Boone wrote a Rodney King inspired song but shelved it until the 2020 protests. Now it’s gone viral.

As Pat Boone watched the protests and clashes nationwide after George Floyd’s death in police custody in May, the 86-year-old singer thought about a song he’d written but never released nearly 30 years ago following the acquittal of Los Angeles police officers in the beating of Rodney King. “In some ways, it was worse,” Boone says of the protests that erupted in South Los Angeles before spreading to other parts of the city in the days that followed. “From the window in my office, it looked like ...

Oh, Lord, no more Ku Klux Klan! —Charles Mingus, “Fables of Faubus” In 1957, Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus decided that integration—mandated three years earlier by Brown v.
