Aimee Mann weds ‘Bachelor No. 2’ and ‘Magnolia’ albums together for Black Friday Record Store Day reissue

Singer-songwriter Aimee Mann says it was just luck that she was working on songs for the album that became “Bachelor No. 2,” while her friend the writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson was writing the screenplay for “Magnolia.” “We were both starting our creative processes at the same time,” Mann says recently from her home in Los Angeles. “And so we were talking about the themes that we were writing about. “I remember him coming to the studio a couple of times while we were recording,” she says. ...

Video premiere: Bebopalula, ‘Coloring Book’

L.A. quartet Bebopalula don’t call themselves a band, but a songwriting collective — four guys with solid bona fides whose music is rooted in, but certainly not constrained by, tradition. Sixties guys at heart, they stretch the boundaries of what history has pigeonholed as power-pop, adding their own paisley flourishes with skill, precision and no small amount of (what some would call impish) enthusiasm. “Coloring Book,” the first single from the quartet’s long-in-the-works debut album, puts the...

30 Songs From 1994 You Need To Listen To Right Now

Clockwise, above from left. Photo: Courtesy of Columbia; Arista; Geffen; Sire/London Rhino. If the past few years have taught us anything, it's that life was way better two decades ago. The unofficial pastime of 2014 has been reminiscing about 1994 — a funny little year that didn’t seem all that great at the time but now looks to have been a golden age for TV, film, and, most of all, music. There was Lisa Loeb’s "Stay," TLC's "Waterfalls," and more Ace of Base than you could shake a stick at...

listening to joni: #6: court and spark

Court and Spark, 1974 Writing about the music of Joni Mitchell has been a huge challenge. My love of music and my writing abilities seem to live in separate spheres: I write with my brain, but I listen with my heart. If writing about Joni's music has been challenging, writing about Court and Spark feels impossible. The love and connection I feel for this music is impossible to put into words. So with that disclaimer, I will now attempt the impossible.Court and Spark is many Joni fans' favourite...

listening to joni: #5: for the roses

For The Roses, 1972 Front Cover For The Roses is often overlooked, sandwiched as it is between two masterpieces. Fans who missed it might be surprised at its richness -- musically, lyrically, and emotionally. It has always been one of my favourites.For the Roses sits between Blue and Court and Spark not only chronologically, but musically. There are the rich, deep piano chords of Blue, but heralds of another sound are mixed in -- woodwinds, reeds, and strings, Joni's own multi-track ba...

Tommy Keene, dead at 59 (read tributes from Guided by Voices, Ted Leo & more)

For a lot of folks, Keene's style was the sound of the ’80s: bright, jangly guitar pop with hooks out the wazoo. While he never quite got the attention that Matthew Sweet, The Plimsouls, The dB’s or even Let’s Active, Tommy consistently made some terrific records over the last 25 years, including ones for Geffen and Matador...

Michael Alago, Who Signed Metallica and White Zombie, Gets the Documentary Treatment in ‘Who the F**k Is That Guy?’

If the histories of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre warrant four hours of prime HBO real estate in “The Defiant Ones,” then certainly Michael Alago, the flamboyant New York punk habitue who signed Metallica to Elektra and White Zombie to Geffen during his stints as an A&R executive, deserves his 77 minutes of recognition.

Nobody’s Favorite Record Review #2: Neil Young’s Landing on Water

Almost everyone loves Neil Young. And Mr. Young has given us many, many excellent records which a lot of people love very much. However, some are more loved than others, and I can’t think of too many of them that are less loved than this one. 1986’s Landing on Water is nobody’s favorite Neil Young album. Of course, most of us know how Neil flailed around (or by all appearances he did, anyway) in the 80’s, trying on musical genres like he was trying to find the perfect tux to wear to prom or so...

The Popdose Interview: Monty Colvin of Galactic Cowboys

The most difficult part about speaking with Monty Colvin, bassist for the band Galactic Cowboys, is where you try to separate out all the stuff you believe has already been covered. You find that some things are easier to diverge from (for example, Colvin’s cousin Douglas Colvin, better known to the world as Dee Dee Ramone); some things are more challenging (i/e that magical combination of thrash metal with pop music sensibilities and intricate vocal harmonies). But in the end, the most importan...

Album Review: Blackfield, “Blackfield V”

Invoking the first album with the imagery of the old jug emblazoned with the “Blackfield” label, one might assume this to be the last hurrah for the experiment musicians Aviv Geffen and Steven Wilson set forth in 2004. In a lot of ways, the latest, fifth edition feels very much a piece with that first record except for two things: much like Blackfield IV, Aviv Geffen is in the driver’s seat, with Wilson providing some vocals, production, and a couple of writing credits. Also, V feels like a more...

Watch 82-Year-Old Igor Stravinsky Conduct The Firebird, the Ballet Masterpiece That First Made Him Famous (1965)

The Ballets Russes, founded in 1909 by art critic and impresario Sergei Diaghilev, staged some truly revolutionary productions on the very edge of aesthetic innovation. Diaghilev’s ballets coordinated set designs by artists like Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Giorgio de Chirico, choreography by such legends as George Balanchine and Vaslav Nijinsky, and scores by such modern composers as Sergei Prokofiev and Erik Satie. But of course, when we think of Diaghilev’s Russian ballets, we su...

Popdose Oral History: “Papas Fritas” (1995)

In chronicling Electric Light Orchestra’s backstory for Mojo magazine in 2001, Jim Irvin admitted that he’d originally dismissed the band’s music as empty calories during the Sex Pistols’ heyday. “What a horrible snob I was. Of course, the dream of punk as a great proletarian force was cobblers,” he wrote. “The real ’70s Music Of The People was being made by disco acts and bands like ELO, a noble music that’s uplifting and unpretentious. You don’t have to decode it or hitch a lifestyle to it. It...
