Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore returns to rock, talks Rolling Stones, Talking Heads, Patti Smith influences

Just as Thurston Moore’s longtime band Sonic Youth sculpted experimental symphonies into rock and roll shapes, the guitarist says his new solo album “By The Fire” was forged from all the sounds and styles he loves. His previous release, the 2019 box set “Spirit Council,” collected three long-form guitar compositions, each refined over tours in recent years and all running long enough to fill their own CD. That project behind him, Moore says he wanted to return to the tighter format of a single a...

32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 15: The House of Mystery!

Tonight we kick off with our #TrackoftheDay from the Canadian band A Spectre is Haunting Europe and their debut album Astonishing Tales of the Sea. I don’t know a great deal about them…the album is from 2004 and their third and most recent album was in 2008. Their official website appears to be kaput. Which is a shame, because “Fearless Vampire Killers” is a pretty great track. Enjoy. You can find that album here. Digital only, as the CD appears to have gone the way of all flesh. Okay, ...

Joan Shelley – “I Would Be In Love (Anyway)” (Frank Sinatra Cover) & “Here In California” (Kate Wolf Cover)

The Louisville singer and songwriter Joan Shelley makes hushed, lovely, spartan acoustic music. She does that when she's recording her own songs, as on her great 2017 self-titled album, and she does it when she's recording other people's songs, too. Last year, Shelley released the covers EP Rivers & Vessels, which … More »

What you need to know about Mötley Crüe’s ‘The Dirt’ on Netflix

In the two minutes before the title of the Netflix biopic “The Dirt” appears on screen, we are introduced meet the four members of Mötley Crüe doing very Mötley Crüe things as a wild party rages in their thrashed apartment around the corner from the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood. “That’s Tommy, our drummer. He makes a lot of bad decisions,” says bassist Nikki Sixx, as drummer Tommy Lee, played by rapper Machine Gun Kelly, grabs his date and does a very adult thing that is still technically il...

Buzzcocks' 'Love Bites' Is an Uneven, But Worthwhile, Listen

None Buzzcocks were undeniably one of the best bands to emerge from the late 1970s British punk scene. Still, unlike the Clash, the Sex Pistols, or Wire, they never produced a front-to-back great, non-compilation album. The stellar Singles Going Steady (1979), a remarkably coherent collection of UK A-sides and B-sides recorded between November 1977 and July 1979, one designed to build a US audience for the band, is one of rock's essential records. Even though they did their best work on singles...

Either Dead Right or Crazy: Fathom Events and Rereleasing Classic Films

I’m becoming a big fan of Fathom Events. They’ve reinvigorated what going to the movie theater means for me. For a while, revivals and reissues were completely dead. There was no point in going to the theater to watch an old movie anymore. There was home video, cable, and later streaming. At first this was supposed to be the great savior of films. Anyone would have the power to watch whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted. But it had the effect of cheapening movies for a lot of people. Now, ...

Was Mary Shelley A Feminist? A New Film About The Writer Says Yes

The new IFC film Mary Shelley brings to life the story of the famed author. Shelley’s biography was just as tragic and as fantastical as the story for which she’s famed: Frankenstein. And although Shelley’s life would be marked by loss and heartbreak, she stands as feminist icon who fiercely fought for recognition for her work.Shelley (portrayed in the film by Elle Fanning) was raised with an impressively liberal pedigree. Her father, noted philosopher William Goodwin, is considered the archite...

Finding ‘the weird’ in psychedelic art

The concepts of altered states and psychedelia creep in to a great deal of visual art. According to Lewis-Williams, some early forms of Palaeolithic rock art may have been shamanic in origin, and represent forms seen during visionary states. 18th Century works such as Fuseli’s The Nightmare (1781) depicted the ‘old hag’ phenomenon, a type of hypnagogic hallucination that is experienced on the threshold of sleep, during which a person feels as though a daemon or other supernatural entity is suffo...

A Dance on the Rubbles of the Abandoned Blub Water Park

One year after the burning down of the Blub, the coolest water park Berlin ever had  that was shut down in 2005, this cute music video, “The Ballad of Shelley and Hamza”, is bound to bring back memories both to those who used to have fun at the water slides in the 80s and 90s, as well as to us who visited it when it was already abandoned. “The Ballad of Shelley and Hamza” tells the story of two people, who, on their way to find themselves, they found each other; It is an entirely imagined, uncon...

Twin Peaks: The Return Part 6 Recap: Lucky Number 7

Watching Twin Peaks is a lot like anticipating a far-off sneeze. For each hourlong episode, it's as if my nose itches, building towards that heaving and sputtering release. Most episodes don't provide that achoo- ful release, though — Twin Peaks is an exercise in forever approaching, but never arriving. (If I were Miley Cyrus, I would say it's not about how fast we get there; it's all about the climb.)That being said, episode six provided a few much-needed releases. We're six episodes into an t...

Photos: Robyn Hitchcock at the Troubadour

[See image gallery at] Robyn Hitchcock’s career, including his time with The Soft Boys, has spanned over four decades. Earlier this year, Hitchcock released his self-titled 21st solo album, after having moved to Nashville in 2015. The London-born storyteller has a lot to say and has been saying it to strong cult following since his first solo effort in 1981.

Joan Shelley :: S/T

The songs of Kentucky singer/songwriter Joan Shelley have always centered on the beauty of subtle recognition, her lyrics filled with scents, changes in temperature, bird song, and slight rustlings. On her eponymous fourth album, Shelley sings mostly about about people and about their desires in relation to others. It’s Shelley’s most revelatory LP, an album […]
