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. ...

Michael Penn – “A Revival”

The singer and songwriter Michael Penn started out his career more than 30 years ago with the lovelorn power-pop hit "No Myth." But Penn's career moved slowly but surely toward the world of scoring movies and TV shows. (When you score the first two Paul Thomas Anderson films, that kind of thing will happen.) It's … More »

Album Review: Plasticsoul, “Therapy”

Lately, I’ve been struggling with the genre subclassification “power pop.” I never used to have this problem. In fact, for the longest time, I’ve been a defender of the terminology. I mean, how detrimental could it be? In the grand scheme of things, not at all, but when you start inquiring what the term evokes to other critics and some listeners, the responses are worrisome: happy, horny, and frivolous. Most artists won’t mind the first term, and are sanguine to the second term. It is what it is...

What’s THAT Supposed to Mean?: Aimee Mann, “Lost in Space”

But I am the stuff of happy endings / Though mostly bluff, belief suspending / But close enough for just pretending / To care? What’s THAT supposed to mean? The new Aimee Mann album, Mental Illness, is winning all sorts of critical acclaim. That’s great, but something about it struck me as odd. Perhaps it’s because the album is, by Mann’s admission, a concession to her own stereotype as a purveyor of slow, depressing tunes.
