Lou Reed Concert Film Berlin Streaming Free Online for the Next Week Last laughs can be sweet, and according to music journalist, Anthony DeCurtis, his friend, the late Lou Reed, “reveled” in the critical drubbing that greeted his 3rd solo album, 1973’s Berlin. Not immediately, however. Berlin, which followed hard on the heels of Reed’s widely adored Transformer, had a painful, protracted delivery. This was due in part due to RCA execs getting cold feet about releasing Reed’s grim concept record as a double albu...

Using the arts for change on International Women’s Day

With every generation comes difficult and contested times that shape history. In the United States, where we are experiencing one of the most divided society in decades, the sentiment feels omnipresent and pervasive. For women and those of nonconforming gender, the issues at stake are even more expansive than the gun laws, environmental concerns, or tax reforms that are on the minds of our citizens. For those of us who identify as such, personal rights over our bodies and behaviors are being cha...

The 70 Best Songs of 2017

70. The Horrors - "Machine" On their fifth album V , the Horrors expand on the bright, psychedelic territory they explored with Luminous , anchoring the ten new tracks with retro synths and guitar fuzz freakouts. "Machine" is the delicious outlier and the most vitriolic cut on the record, with Faris Badwan belting out accusations to the song's subject, who may even be us. The concept of alienation is nothing new, but here the Brits incorporate a b...

It's a designation that's been rightfully met with ribbing derision, but it's an interesting development that speaks to some larger … More »

Strange Sort of Force: An Interview with J. Ralph

In many ways, Joshua Ralph is the least famous "famous person" in the world. For young Joshua Ralph (who prefers to go by J. Ralph), the story started simply: he was signed to a record deal with Lava/Atlantic at the age of 22 on the strength of beats he was crafting while going to NYU, his love of all things music bleeding through every song he recorded, regardless of genre. He self-directed the music video for his lead single "Baby" , but his pop-minded debut Music...

Stream: Hercules & Love Affair, ‘Rejoice’

The joy is infectious on “Rejoice,” a song Andy Butler wrote celebrating four years of sobriety after a long battle with drug addiction. It appears on Hercules & Love Affair‘s new album, “Omnion,” arriving Sept. 1 through Atlantic Records. Butler admits this is a more serious album, subject-wise. “Sometimes the dance floor represents a decision to avoid dialogue with the wider world, to commune with people but not really talk,” Butler says. “But humans need to challenge themselves and step it up...
