Jeremih Taken Off Ventilator & Transferred Out of ICU After COVID-19 Health Scare

Jeremih is on the road to recovery after contracting COVID-19. The R&B singer’s family says he’s out of the ICU and has been transferred to a regular hospital room. “Jeremih has been transferred out of ICU,” his family said in a statement. “He will spend the rest of his recovery time in a regular hospital room. The true healing begins. Thank you all for your continued prayers and wishes.” The news comes after the 33-year-old’s agent revealed Thursday (Nov. 19) that he’d been taken off the ventil...

The Month In Hardcore: November 2020

One guy has on boxing gloves. His Power Trip shirt is tucked into some gym shorts. I think there’s a mouthguard in his mouth. This is a few days before Halloween, so the whole ensemble is presumably a costume. But it’s functional, too. Because this guy is just out here punching the shit out of everyone. So is everyone else. It’s just a room full of motherfuckers whomping each other and then occasionally pausing for long enough to group-yell some lyrics about killing cops. The camera barely even ...

Janis Joplin & Tom Jones Bring the House Down in an Unlikely Duet of “Raise Your Hand” (1969) If you’re a fan of Tom Jones and you don’t care who knows it, then no one needs to justify the jovial Welsh superstar’s lounge-soul covers of pop, R&B, and rock songs to you . Certain purists have been a tougher sell on Jones’ act, including, in 1969, Neil Young, who joined Jones onstage once, and only once, on the This is Tom Jones show and immediately regretted it. But who cares about Neil Young’s cranky dislike of commercial television...

#TrackoftheDay: “George Romero Will Be At Our Wedding”

ShowbreadUSA (2006) Yet another song where I can’t remember finding it for the live of me, but I was very surprised when I looked up the band and saw they’re a Christian band. I mean…a band that happens to be Christian and not a Christian band, if you get what I mean. I mean…unless they’re saying something about zombie Jesus in this zombie song that I missed. But yeah, I wasn’t expected one of the best and most disturbing and also romantic zombie songs I’ve found in recent memory to ...

When R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe Created the Lyrics for “The Voice of Harold” by Riffing on the Liner Notes of an Old Gospel Album (1983)

R.E.M. is one of those bands that just thinking about can send me into a reverie of memories of the rooms of friends with whom I listened to “Pretty Persuasion,” “Rockville,” and the poetry of “7 Chinese Bros.”—one of Michael Stipe’s early, incomprehensible songs, like “Swan Swan H,” whose cryptic lyrics one must seemingly take on faith. The song must mean something, after all, to Stipe. Maybe the mystery of who, exactly, the “seven Chinese brothers swallowing the ocean” were to him woul...

Orlando Brown Gives Testimony in Church About Quitting Drugs & Turning to God

Orlando Brown says he’s done with drugs and is ready to give his life to God. Footage recently surfaced of Orlando giving a testimony at a church in Texas telling the congregation that he has turned his life around after previously heading into a downward spiral after experimenting with drugs. The 32-year-old started out by telling everyone his name and saying that they may recognize him “from a little show called ‘That’s So Raven.'” He went on to state that he dabbled in drugs, including crysta...

A Musician’s Call to Mysticism

An astounding fact bears our reflection. In the Mass, we experience the reality for which the mystic heart longs—real union with our God. However, we receive such grace only in the degree to which our souls are disposed to accept it. (1) When your music at Mass influences the readiness of our souls, by stirring within us a deeper grasp of what is taking place on the altar, your welcoming of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament has glorious repercussions! Imagine the increase in His grace that c...

Conway the Machine – “From King to a GOD” (Album Review)

Conway the Machine is a 38 year old MC from Buffalo, New York who’s risen to prominence as a co-founder of Griselda Records with his brother Westside Gunn. The label has put out a lot of the most essential releases from the East Coast within the past 5 years & have quickly become one of the most well-respected crews in hip hop today. Although everyone on the team has always been working their asses off (especially as of late), Conway has definitely stood out the most in 2020. He dropped 2 damn-...

Come with me, and I will make you fishers of the sun.

I wanted to get the text of the Jesus quote right so I could transform it for the post title. Of course, there are many translations of Matthew 4:19, but the one I wanted was "Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men."I couldn't find it. Translations that ended with "I will make you fishers of men" began with "Follow me" or "Come ye after me." Translations that began with "Come with me" had clumsy endings: "Come with me! I will teach you how to bring in people instead of fish," "Come w...

King Of The Beach Turns 10

As proclamations of supremacy go, it's not quite Jesus walking into the temple and declaring himself the messiah, but for an indie rocker in the summer of 2010, anointing yourself king of the beach was an act of extreme confidence. Lo-fi guitar bands like Beach Fossils, Best Coast, and Real Estate had helped to steer … More »

Soundtracking the Apocalypse

During this time of global crisis, I work from home–and it’s amazing I can do that because my boss is a total asshole*. I try not to leave the house, and I realize I’m lucky I can manage that. But when I do go out, I try to do something to keep my mind focused on the task at hand–namely doing what I need to do and getting home safe. Whether you go out rarely, or if you’re stuck having to go out for your own job, here’s the one ...

Bad Religion’s Greg Graffin talks about the band’s 40 years of punk rock

This was set to be a big year for Bad Religion. The San Fernando Valley-based punk rock band had plans to commemorate its 40th anniversary, but the coronavirus global pandemic forced the cancellation of its 2020 global jaunt. As well, this year marks anniversaries for three of Bad Religion’s biggest albums: Its 1990 album “Against the Grain” turns 30, 2000’s “The New America” turns 20 and 2010’s “The Dissent of Man” celebrates its 10th anniversary. “We’ve always done something important in the y...

An Archive of 1,000 “Peel Sessions” Available Online: Hear David Bowie, Bob Marley, Elvis Costello & Others Play in the Studio of Legendary BBC DJ John Peel

Before he became the most influential music broadcaster of all time on the BBC, John Peel had to become John Peel. Born and raised in England, he spent a stretch of his early twenties in the United States, working for a cotton producer (his father's industry), selling insurance, and writing punchcard computer programs before finding his way onto the airwaves. Hosting work in such locales as Dallas, Oklahoma City, and San Bernardino primed him to return to his homeland and take his radio ...
