With beabadoobee, The ’90s Alt-Rock Revival Sounds Ready For Its Inevitable Pop Crossover

Is beabadoobee a rock artist or a pop artist?

Blackpink Are Doing It Big Without The Exhausting Bloat

25 years later, The Vandals’ explain why this ‘pure punk’ album is being reissued

Josh Freese has played drums for artists from Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle to Sting and Kelly Clarkson, so yeah, he’s the kind of drummer people call when they want things to sound perfect. But his heart belongs to the Vandals, the long-running Orange County punk band he joined as a teenager. It’s a group of great musicality, except when they decide to leave things a little rough around the edges, as Freese remembers in 1995 sessions for the album called — prepare yourselves here — “Live...

‘The Voice’ found this Orange County singer after he’d spent years of paying his dues

Nine words and 17 seconds. That’s all Roderick Chambers had to sing of the Brian McKnight song he’d chosen for his blind audition on “The Voice” to convince judge Nick Jonas to hit his button, spin his chair, and change Chambers’ life forever. Now picture what that was like for Chambers: You just got something you’d dreamed about for years, but there’s still more than a minute of the song to sing, and millions of viewers are watching. Rock singer Tom Petty and his wife Dana arrive at the wor...

Since parting ways, the members of One Direction have all carved out their own place in the pop music firmament.

An Aging Hipster’s Top 50 Albums of 2019

As society hurdles ass over ears into the smog congested, plastic particle infested, fact contested, crap basket of incivility, we can at least take solace in the fact it was a mighty good year for new music.  My year-in-review list of albums is a bit different than most. I’ve limited mine to albums I actually OWN on CD — there are countless more I streamed online, but these are the ones I stepped up and put a ring on at the cash register.  Event Of The Year: The Prince Estate Opens The Gate...

What Happens When A Rockstar Turns 40? Karen O Teams With Danger Mouse To Ask On Lux Prima

There was a real danger when combining Karen O and Danger Mouse that things could get too theatrical. O, as the indelible lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs established an unparalleled style, from her shrieking vocals to her outre stage presence, that none of her peers from the New York scene of the aughties could replicate. And Danger Mouse, in his collaborations with Cee-Lo Green (Gnarls Barkley) and James Mercer (Broken Bells) as well as his production work with the Black Keys, Beck, and Ade...

Maren Morris Takes Aim At The Invisible Walls Around Country Music On Girl

There’s a tightrope walk for any woman on country radio, an all-important format that remains a career-maker in the genre in 2019. According to recent research, women are only getting around 10% of airplay; by way of explanation, radio programmers habitually claim that listeners vote down women singers when their new songs are tested. The never-ending arguments about not sounding “country enough” is why Kacey Musgraves didn’t service singles off Golden Hour to country radio. It took a tour open...
