Band To Watch: Real Lies

It all started with an A4-sized piece of paper. It was posted in a London shop window, and it advertised a “must-see property”: a detached, five-bedroom house for rent. The house was nestled in between the East and West Reservoirs in Woodberry Down, so the words “has lake” were scrawled on the page in pencil. As soon as Kev Kharas and Tom Watson spotted the ad 12 years ago, everything was about to change.

Two On-the-Spectrum Vignettes

Ericsson and Pool Peak (2016) Francesca Happé and Pedro Vital, two researchers at King's College London, compared autistic children who develop savantlike abilities with autistic children who did not develop such abilities. They found that the autistic savants are much more likely than the nonsavants to be very detail-oriented and prone to repetitive behaviors. When something captures their attention, they will focus on it to the exclusion of everything else around them, retreating into their o...

K-boom! How the unstoppable stars of K-pop went gunning for the art world

First came K-cinema, then K-pop and K-TV. Now South Korea’s young stars are conquering the world with K-art. But what do their dark visions say about their nation’s psyche – and ours?Ohnim is having a blue period, just like Picasso. Over Zoom from a gallery in Seoul, the Korean rapper Song Min-ho, better known as Mino to K-pop fans but Ohnim in the art world, shows me a painting he finished the previous evening in collaboration with artist Choi Na-ri. It depicts a blue crouched figure, like a de...

Watch Rick Astley & Blossoms Cover Smiths Songs In Manchester

Last month, Rick Astley announced that he planned to team up with indie-pop outfit Blossoms for two Smiths cover shows. Well, Astley and his backing band have officially made good on the first show, playing a round of Smiths songs at Albert Hall in the beloved post-punk band’s own hometown of Manchester. (Bold!) If you don’t live anywhere near Manchester (or tomorrow night’s location, London), worry not: there’s plenty of fan-shot footage of Astley and Blossoms performing “What Difference Does I...

Stream London Punk Band Game’s Frantic, Feverish New EP Legerdemain

On the same day that the Chisel and Big Cheese both put out new music, we’ve now got another ripper from another UK punk band. Game — the London punks, not the former G-Unit member — released their debut album No One Wins in 2019. The band features Fucked Up drummer Jonah Falco, a man who’s currently producing a lot of the best UK punk and hardcore — as well as former members of UK bands like Arms Race and Violent Reaction. But the real draw in Game is singer Ola Herbich, who bellows most of her...

The Chisel – “Retaliation”

Last year, the great UK punk band the Chisel got together in London. Since then, they’ve cranked out three EPs of simplistic shit-stomping leftist anthems that draw on street-punk, oi, and old-school hardcore: Deconstructive Surgery last year, Come See Me / Not The Only One and Enough Said this year. If you’ve heard those records, you already know what time it is.

The Harder They Fall review – Idris Elba rides into trouble in garishly violent western

Jeymes Samuel’s gonzo revenge western, with a cast including Elba, Regina King, and Zazie Beetz is enjoyable, if face-splatteringly brutalThe London film festival saddles up for a gonzo revenge western which aims to reclaim the often erased African American side of this genre and history. It stars Regina King, Idris Elba and LaKeith Stanfield, and is created by the impressive hyphenate Jeymes Samuel, also known as singer-songwriter and film-maker The Bullitts, who also co-produces along with Tar...

My frame is true: new wave posters – in pictures

Andrew Krivine began collecting music industry flyers and posters in 1977 on his annual trip from the US to see family in London. “I’d go on expeditions to Camden Market, Rough Trade, Stiff Records and even brazenly walk into the headquarters of Virgin Records,” he recalls. By the time he’d finished college in the early 80s (spending a year in the UK as well as studying in Chicago), he’d amassed around 5,500 items of memorabilia for punk and new wave LPs, gigs and clubs. The finest of these have...

Palace – “Lover (Don’t Let Me Down)”

Not to be confused with the early Will Oldham projects that used permutations of the same name, the Palace we’re here to discuss today — the Palace that’s a going concern — is a band out of London making expansive, emotive alt-rock. At the center of their sound is Leo Wyndham’s falsetto, which bears more than a passing resemblance to Jeff Buckley, though I also hear traces of My Morning Jacket and DIIV and alt-J in their sound. As if telegraphing the Buckley influence, Palace’s new song out toda...

Leonard Cohen goes to the doctor: Ian Cook’s best photograph

‘He said he had to see a throat specialist then added: “Do you want to come along?” Later, we drove to a party with me sitting on his lap in a limo’In 1979 Leonard Cohen was in London for a few days on a European tour and I had been assigned to photograph him by the US magazine People. I arrived at the Dorchester Hotel and was shown up to his room. He announced that he had picked up some sort of larynx infection on the plane and that he might not be able to perform. He said that he had an immine...

Ich erfuhr in einem viralen TikTok-Video vom Seitensprung meines Freundes

Okay, stell dir das vor: Es ist 8 Uhr an einem Samstagmorgen. Du bist schon wach, weil heute deine letzte Brautkleid-Anprobe ist. Unten im Haus versammelt sich deine Familie, um über das Hochzeitsfrühstück zu diskutieren. Du entsperrst dein Handy, um dich wie an jedem Morgen erstmal durch TikTok zu scrollen. Im ersten Video, das auf dem Bildschirm auftaucht, lächelt eine junge Frau in die Kamera. Auf ihrem Gesicht steht ein Text: „Wenn du am 27. August in London einen Bauarbeiter namens Adam hei...

It’s Just Too Much Trouble For EU Groups To Hire British Musicians Post-Brexit, Warns Simon Rattle

Fauness – “It Gets Better”

Fauness, the idiosyncratic London pop artist whom we named one of the best new bands of 2019, is releasing her new Maiden No More EP in a couple of weeks.

Indie pop star Connie Constance: ‘People play with your career as if it’s not your entire life’

Now independent and thriving, the UK musician has a cautionary tale for women in the music industryThe pandemic temporarily spelled game over for emerging pop stars: who could compete for headlines and livestreams with the likes of Dua Lipa?

Girlhood – “4AM”

The London pop duo Girlhood’s self-titled debut was one of 2020’s low-key pop pleasures. Today, almost a year after the album’s release, Tessa Cavanna and Christian Pinchbeck are back with a new one-off track called “4AM” that sees them once again artfully merging ’90s soul and R&B with the concurrent beat-driven electronica sounds of that moment. Despite the aggressive tone of the big beat movement, the rhythm here is typically understated and gliding. I imagine Jorja Smith’s records might have...

Betrunkene Instagram-Posts sind das neue „Drunk Texting“

Es ist der Neujahrstag 2020. Irgendwo im englischen Leeds reibt sich die 22-jährige Tahmina* müde den Schlaf aus den Augen, löst mit etwas Mühe ihre Zunge vom Gaumen und ext ein Glas Leitungswasser. Wie der Rest der Welt ist Tahmina an diesem Morgen ziemlich verkatert. Kleine Erinnerungsschnipsel vom Vorabend huschen ihr durchs Gehirn: vom Vorglühen zu Hause, von der Bar, vom Rave, schließlich vom Schwulenclub. Dann dreht sich ihr Magen um, als irgendwann mehr Erinnerungen zurückkehren.  E...

Stream Koma’s Exhilarating Noise-Shredded Hardcore Debut Internment Failure

Koma are a band out of London and Leeds playing a strain of aggressively noisy hardcore that sounds like an army of robots murdering each other with chainsaws and lasers while an endless barrage of bombs drop from the sky. Their debut album Internment Failure, out now on La Vida Es En Mus, comprises 12 tracks of relentless sonic violence — the kind of punk that hits like black metal, perpetually frantic and static-laden, with vocals that split the difference between war cries and righteously inf...

"The pay was 9 pounds — about $17. With two young children to feed, she showed up at 8:30 p.m. to tune her harp and was handed a piece of sheet music."

Only later did she learn that the notes she played were to be the intro on 'She’s Leaving Home' by the Beatles.... Mrs. Bromberg’s harp intro and rhythm, backed by a full string section, set the poignant tone of the track before Paul McCartney (who recorded separately) began the lyric 'Wednesday morning at 5 o’clock as the day begins.'...  She played harp on two early James Bond films starring Sean Connery — 'Dr. No' (1962) and 'Goldfinger' (1964)... She also performed the solo intro to the 1976...

"Michelle Obama said that it was 'the best piece of art in any form that I have ever seen,' an observation that put Michelangelo, Mozart and Miles Davis in their place."

"There have been a few detractors but most have been confined to isolated pockets of social media, like guerrilla fighters facing overwhelming odds. What is it that generates so much excitement?... [W]hatever [Hamilton]’s true merits, it has at least bridged the ever-growing gap between Broadway and popular song. Think of it, if you like, as Les Mis for the beatbox generation.
