The College Admissions Scandal Is Peak White Privilege — & It's Nothing New

I went to one of the top public high schools in Washington State — and most of the students were rich and white. My family was middle-class; my mother is an immigrant, my father was raised in poverty, and neither inherited wealth. And though I did grow up with economic privileges that I don’t seek to deny, the degree of wealth that surrounded me in my youth baffled me. Many of the families in my community had boats (some even private planes) and summer homes. If one of my classmates received a ...

Melody, Aggression, Intelligence: An Interview with Bob Mould

None Bob Mould's latest album, Sunshine Rock, is the culmination of a several experiences: Albums that came in the wake of the loss of both his parents, a relocation to Berlin, Germany, and the recognition that happy songs, across his recent recorded output, had a rarer commodity. Whether the result is Mould's best album in a decade or a continuation of the always-solid and emotionally-charged sets he's issued across a solo career that is now 30 years old will remain a matter of debate among fa...

Album Review: The Naked Sun, “War With Shadows”

This is the debut album from Philadelphia-based sextet, The Naked Sun, a band who began their quest for “honest rock” in 2011; after a 2013 E.P., Space, Place and Time, they unleashed a full-length, War With Shadows, in January and it showcases the band’s width for making interesting music.  The collection blends the basics of roots-rock and folk with layers of bolstering piano and organ, intricate pedal steel runs and melodic choruses – backed by satisfying harmonies.

Kelley Deal: The Popdose Interview

She’s finding herself in the now again. Kelley Deal has topped charts with The Breeders but her latest outing, R. Ring’s Ignite The Rest, is perhaps the most nuanced and writerly of her career. It is, at once, immediate, gutsy, clattering and beautiful, and, make no mistake about it, Deal and Ampline’s Mike Montgomery, who rounds out the duo, were aiming for that target when they hit it. “Mike and I didn’t want to be forced to write a song with bass and drums. It influences at least 50 percent o...
