Alice Merton Encourages Us to Embrace Joy and Fearlessness on 'MINT'

None Throughout 2018, it was impossible to avoid Alice Merton's "No Roots". The single quickly solidified the German-Canadian-English singer as a prominent yet burgeoning presence in popular music. Merton is no neophyte, however. She has already gone platinum in six countries while amassing over 261 million global streams. The success of "No Roots" was only an indicator of Merton's musical alacrity. Her debut album, MINT, is equally rousing and beatific. More than a dance-pop album, Merton uses...

It's Been 3 Years Since The First Money Diary, So We Caught Up With Some Of Our Fave NYC Diarists

Today, January 17, 2019, marks the third anniversary of Money Diaries! Once a fledging idea borne of a dinner party conversation about the taboo nature of money, over the last three years, we've published over 1,000 diaries from all 50 states and around the globe, garnered a loyal (and sometimes, er, judge-y) commentariat, inspired a whole gamut of copycat series (ahem), published a book, and, most importantly, stayed true to our mission of normalizing conversations around the not-always-glamor...

Fashion Hates Brexit: 5 Slogan Tees To Show Your Solidarity

And so the Brexit saga continues.After Theresa May 's historic loss last night, in which her deal for leaving the EU was rejected in the House of Commons by 432 votes to 202, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn tabled a no-confidence motion in her government. Members of Parliament will be debating this topic today before yet another vote, leaving none of us – even the MPs – any the wiser about Britain's place in Europe. The British Fashion Council (BFC), meanwhile, has publicly called for a second refe...

Moschino Had A Code Word For Black Shoppers — & It Leads To A Larger Problem

In 2018, Black people were constantly reminded that we can’t barbecue, nap, or even shop without experiencing prejudice. And in 2019, the narrative that Black people don’t belong in particular spaces persists.In December, Shameal Lataillade filed a complaint against her former employer Moschino, alleging an assistant manager at the West Hollywood, Los Angeles store referred to Black shoppers as “Serena” and asked employees to follow them round the store. According to The Fashion Law, Lataillade...

'Captain America: The First Avenger' Stands Out in a Glut of Comic Book Films

None Discussions of the mythical "superhero fatigue" were in full swing in the summer of 2011, and the concept has been raised every time a superhero film is considered a critical or commercial disappointment. The basis of superhero fatigue is the idea that audiences will grow tired of the neverending glut of big-budget comic book films, and will stop seeing them en masse. It's quaint to think of film bloggers in 2011 foretelling the imminent implosion of the genre when, seven years later, mega...

Pawel Pawlikowski's 'Cold War' Is a Lustrous, Slyly Subversive Melodrama

None There's a true love guiding Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski's first film since 2015's Oscar-winning Ida. The truth isn't in the depth of the emotion, though, but in its blemished sincerity; it's a story about two lovers who stay involved, but not necessarily together, for 15 years, and who never truly convince each other (or us, as viewers) that love itself is enough. The film, set in 1950s Europe, is extravagant but unsentimental, and never strays far from the stark realities of wartime. Tha...

The Technics SL-1200 is back, and this time for DJs again

First it was dead. Then, it came back but … inexplicably cost four thousand bucks and seemed to be for audiophiles, not DJs. Now, at last, the iconic* Technics SL-1200 turntable is back, and in a newly-manufactured form that might actually suit DJs. The pitch: take advanced tech, learned from Blu-ray players, and turn it into an accessible turntable that delivers the performance and playing style of traditional players, with greater reliability and better sound. If you don’t particularly ...

The Good, the Bad & the Queen  Tackle England, Englishness, and the Impact of Brexit on 'Merrie Land'

None Twelve years after the Good, the Bad & the Queen first appeared, the band returned with Merrie Land in late 2018, an album written and recorded in a reflection on England and Englishness following the Brexit vote in the summer of 2016. Damon Albarn, with Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen, Clash bassist Paul Simonon, and Verve guitarist Simon Tong, craft a dreary calm and downcast demeanor on Merrie Land and achieve no indication of diminishing output quality despite the album released barely six...

K-Popnomics: What Indonesia, Other Nations Can Learn From Korean Pop Music Industry

While we in the US have our share of big name pop artists, South Korea has its own share of stadium-filling stars that may be slightly less familiar to an American audience.

When music takes us between pain and peace: Dimension Series mixes

Music can be wallpaper and fashion and groove and all those things – and sometimes those things are grand. But music can also be a torch to help us see out of the dark. The Dimensions Series of curated mixes this year took on those themes of metamorphosis – and how to find ways out of depression and darkness. Mexico City-based artist and curator Oscar González of the wonderful Static Discos label gathered some significant names for t...

Billy Eckstine: Mr. B in Paris

One of the least known albums recorded by singer Billy Eckstine is one of his best—Mr. B in Paris. Recorded for Britain's Felsted label while Eckstine was on tour in Europe between releases for Roulette, the album features the baritone singing 12 songs in French backed by the Bobby Tucker Orchestra. Mr. B in Paris was produced by Quincy Jones and arranged by Jones, Billy Byers and Bobby Tucker.

A New Era for Music Made in Berlin: Watch these 12 Great Music Videos

Berlin in 2018 represents Europe’s creative metropolis number one. “Berlin reminds me of what New York was like in the early ‘80s,” Honey Dijon, iconic DJ, and cultural encyclopedia, told Clash in an interview in 2017, “It hasn’t been tainted as bad. It retains its rawness and roughness, it’s really young and still somewhat affordable. So there’s a lot of young artists.” – The European city that attracts musical talent ain’t London no more.

Download a free two-hour Panorama Bar mix from nd_baumecker

Nothing brightens midwinter like music. So the warm glow of nd_baumecker’s mixing is something special. The delayed download is out now from Ostgut Ton, the label associated with Berghain and Panorama Bar. The musical climate in which we live can too easily be afflicted with conformity, with genres and trends regimented by algorithms and anxious aspirations of bookers, media, artists … the lot. And with Berghain as the elephant in the middle of Berlin’s scene, that conformity can often be a...

Vainqueur's Reductions 1995-1997 is precisely curated to present the stoniest producer on the turn-of-the-millennium Chain Reaction label not as the epitome of non-committal dub-techno drift but as a formidable artist, lining up six of his most beloved pieces in a row and letting them lope for upwards of ten m...
