New York, New Music: how the city became a hotbed for music in the 80s

In a new exhibition, the city’s more well-known breakout artists are celebrated alongside a richer, and lesser reported, strain of experimental musicIn Kid Creole and the Coconuts’ irrepressible 1980 song Darrio, a klatch of female backup singers bouncingly plead with the titular gentleman to get them into Studio 54. The otherwise obliging Darrio enumerates why he cannot (“That’s the only thing that money can’t buy”), before finally admitting “my kind of heaven is Club 57,” the late-70s/early-80...

Nigerian rapper Olamide: ‘People have a very limited understanding of the ghetto’

From a Lagos slum, Olamide became one of Africa’s biggest music stars. A new, global deal is taking his vivid pop to the wider worldBariga, a sprawling northern suburb of Lagos, Nigeria that is home to more than 700,000 people, is infamous for its impoverished housing and gang culture – and for pushing a raw, jarring sound into the Nigerian mainstream. Olamide, long one of Africa’s biggest music stars, was one of the kids responsible for that shift: 13 years ago, he was walking the streets of Ba...

A History of Punk from 1976-78: A Free Online Course from the University of Reading

Hear The Velvet Underground’s “Legendary Guitar Amp Tapes,” Which Showcases the Brilliance & Innovation of Lou Reed’s Guitar Playing (1969)

What was the Velvet Underground? A Kim Fowly-like art project that outlived its impresario’s interest? A main vehicle for Lou Reed, rock’s egomaniac underdog (who was no one’s ingénue)? Was it three bands? 1. The Velvet Underground and Nico; 2. The Velvet Underground with John Cale; and 3. The Velvet Underground with Doug Yule after Cale’s departure. (Let’s pass by, for the moment, whether VU without Reed warrants a mention…) Each iteration pioneered essential underground sounds — dirgy ...

Your Old Droog – “TIME” (Album Review)

This is the 7th full-length album from Ukrainian-American emcee/producer Your Old Droog. Emerging in the underground off his self-titled debut, many first thought he was an alter ego of Nas given that their voices are somewhat similar. Nonetheless, the cat has reached legend status at this point by proving that he was in his own lane off later projects such as Packs & It Wasn’t Even Close. But just a little over 4 months after letting his homie Tha God Fahim produce his 4th EP Tha Wolf on Wall ...

In the Heights movie is a celebration of love, dreams, community, family, and the melting pot that makes New York the greatest city in the world

Fair warning: This is not so much a review of the new In the Heights Movie, opening tonight, as it is a love letter. I am a movie person, as any longtime reader here knows. I’m also a Broadway person, a Lin Manuel person, and a proud native New Yorker. Put them all together, and you […]

Devo and Black Pumas will christen Hollywood Park’s new Performance Venue

Rock band Devo and psychedelic soul group Black Pumas will be among the first artists to take the stage at the all-new Performance Venue located at the sprawling Hollywood Park and under the same roof as SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. (And yes, we’re told that’s what the name of the performance venue is — Performance Venue — at least for now.) The 6,000-capacity theater is scheduled to open later this year with Latin rock band Caifanes kicking things off on Sept. 4, though it’s possible more acts ma...

New York To Stage A Mega-Concert In August To Signal End Of The Pandemic

Seeking a grand symbol of New York’s revitalization after a brutal pandemic year, Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning a large-scale performance by multiple acts and has called on Clive Davis, the 89-year-old producer and music-industry eminence, to pull it together. – The New York Times

McLuhan—The Great Withholding

Marshall McLuhan "Woman in a Mirror" pp. 80-81 in The Mechanical Bride (2002 Gingko Press edition) [orig. 1951] This ad employs the same technique as Picasso in The Mirror. The differences, of course, are obvious enough. By setting a conventional day-self over against a tragic night-self, Picasso is able to provide a time capsule of an entire life. He reduces a full-length novel (or movie) like Madame Bovary to a single image of great intensity. By juxtaposition and contrast he is able to "say" ...

The Origin of the Rooftop Concert: Before the Beatles Came Jefferson Airplane, and Before Them, Brazilian Singer Roberto Carlos (1967)

When did the first rooftop concert happen? Probably not long after construction of the first rooftop. How could early humans resist such an opportunity to project sound over the heads of a crowd? But if we’re talking about a Rooftop Concert, we’re talking about a special genre of gig defined by The Beatles’ farewell rooftop show in London on January 30, 1969. Since that historic moment, each time musicians take to a rooftop, they inevitably face comparisons with the Fab Four, even if the...

Rise Against frontman talks Irvine tour stop, new album and supporting Anaheim’s Chain Reaction club

Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath said he’s is fully vaccinated and ready to get back out on the road, but he’s still cautious. “The finish line is the vaccine,” the 41-year-old Chicago native said during a recent phone interview. On Mother’s Day, McIlrath went out to enjoy his first Blackhawks hockey game with his family since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and admitted to getting teary-eyed as he experienced “some semblance of normalcy.” “I think we’re emotional about it because deep down...

Restarting The New York Phil, In A Cemetery

Justin Davidson, on the NY Phil’s Green-Wood Cemetery “Death of Classical” concert: “That might not seem like the obvious location to stage the revival of performance culture, but when Green-Wood opened in 1838, it was intended to be one of New York’s grandest, most verdant, and most romantic public parks. (Today, its permanent residents include the orchestra’s late music director Leonard Bernstein.)” And for the musicians who will take part, they will inevitably experience some emotions about ...

Finding music in the life and letters of Edna St. Vincent Millay

I first became aware of the work of Edna St. Vincent Millay after composer Alison Willis set one of her poems (“The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver”) for Juice Vocal Ensemble, a group I co-founded with fellow singers and composers, Kerry Andrew and Anna Snow. The collection from which this particular poem is taken won Millay the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1923 and helped to further consolidate her blossoming career, not only as a poet but also as a writer of plays and short stories, receiving mass-r...

The Truth & Frank B. – “Badfellas” (EP Review)

This is a brand new collaborative debut EP between New York emcees The Truth & Frank B. The pair first came together last year on the song “I Know I Can” off of The Truth’s Spring EP & with the 1 year anniversary of that project coming up this weekend, they’ve seen fit to take listener through what it means to be Italian-American hip hop fans by crafting Badfellas . After the “Lil Mo Mozzarella” intro, the title track incorporates some harps into a boom bap instrumental as the duo tak...

Black Soprano Family Records & TCF Music Group – “Trust the Sopranos” (Album Review)

This is a brand new collaborative compilation between New York independent hip hop labels Black Soprano Family Records & T.C.F. Music Group. One operates as an E1 Music imprint owned by Benny the Butcher & the latter being founded by 38 Spesh. The pair have been working together for a long time now (case in point: Stabbed & Shot), so it only makes sense for them to bring their crews together for Trust the Sopranos.

AmirSaysNothing – “Endless Brightside” (Album)

After the darkness that was the year 2020, AmirSaysNothing is here to bring the world “Endless Brightside“. AmirSaysNothing ’s sophomore album showcases his witty authenticity and organic rise through the music scene. His vivacious personality has led him to connect with industry heavyweights as he’s been on the independent artist grind, meshing his influences of New York boom-bap, Houston’s chopped and screwed music and 1970s funk.  Pittsburgh legend Big Jerm (who worked closely with M...

Adenomyose: Die kaum bekannte Krankheit, die jede 10. Frau betrifft

Gemma Taylor hatte von „Adenomyose“ noch nie gehört, bevor sie plötzlich nach einem Jahr schmerzhafter, unerklärlicher Symptome damit diagnostiziert wurde. Dabei war die Adenomyose erst ihre zweite Diagnose; zuvor waren ihre Beschwerden fälschlicherweise als Reizdarmsyndrom abgestempelt worden. Mit dieser Erfahrung ist Gemma aber nicht allein – denn Adenomyose ist leider noch viel zu unbekannt, obwohl so viele Menschen davon betroffen sind. Adenomyose ist quasi die kleine Schwester der E...

How the Clash Embraced New York’s Hip Hop Scene with Their Single “The Magnificent Seven” & “The Magnificent Dance”

“Before playing guitar for Captain Beefheart and Jeff Buckley,” John Kruth writes at the Observer, “Gary Lucas worked as a copywriter for CBS/Epic Records,” where he fell in love with a punk band called the Clash, just signed to the label in 1977. “They weren’t easy to work with,” he remembered. “Like Frank Zappa, they spoke about politics, government and corporate interference with radio.

Opera Super-Fan Leaves Behind 200,000 Autographs

Lois Kirschenbaum was a switchboard operator from Flatbush, Brooklyn, who became perhaps New York’s biggest and longest-standing opera buff — and an obsessive autograph collector.

Chemisches Peeling: Mein 7-tägiger Erfahrungsbericht in Selfies

Von all den Themen, über die ich in meinen Jahren als Beauty-Redakteurin schon geschrieben habe, gehört das professionelle chemische Peeling wohl zu den kontroversesten. Der Begriff „Peeling“ an sich bedeutet immerhin „Schälen“ – und lässt viele dabei an ein Reptil denken, das seine Haut ablegt. Gruselig. Und wer will schon mit einem Gesicht rumrennen, das an ein bröselndes Croissant erinnert?  Trotzdem wird die Behandlung nicht umsonst von Hautexpert:innen und Dermatolog:innen empfohlen. Der Ha...

Supplying The Demand: Talking Top Shelf With Mark Rosado

Street fashion has been a key element in Hip Hop since the 80s, and in today’s underground that element is as prevalent as ever. With the resurgence of lyrical street rap recapturing the essence of Hip Hop’s Golden Age, the demand for high quality fashion wear has never been higher: Bring in Mark Rosado of Top Shelf Premium. Mark runs a vintage clothing store called “Vintage On First” in Hoboken, New Jersey. Being a lifelong fan of Hip Hop, he has transformed his store full of rare streetwear a...

Krens' Footprints and Oteiza's Paradox

Oteiza’s paradox consists in that while New York’s world-class artists will consider him as their equal (Serra conceded to a reporter that he thought Oteiza was the greatest living sculptor, and Gehry called him one of the three or four fundamental artists of the century), the Krensified franchise museum will reduce him to a local artist whose value is seen as quite negligible.But Oteiza is only one instance of this paradox. The same thing happened to the great Eduardo Chillida. Initially, when ...

The Digital Lomax Archive Provides Free Access to the Pioneering Recordings of John & Alan Lomax, Compiled Across 7 Decades

The work of ethnomusicologist father and son team John and Alan Lomax was intended to preserve the local musical cultures of the United States and regions around the world against an encroaching mass media threatening to erase them. But the thousands of Lomax recordings, films, books, articles, and other documents not only conserved regional music; they also helped transform mass culture by introducing local forms that have since become part of a global musical grammar. Lomax and his son...
