LEGO Bowie contemplates post-Ziggy Stardust character ideas: Cobbler Bob? A Mad Deus? Viscount Jizzmark?

Yesterday, we paid tribute to the 42nd anniversary of David Bowie's iconic album Low by featuring The Brothers McLeod animation of comedian Adam Buxton's hysterical radio tribute to Bowie from 2013. We follow it up with another animation done from Buxton's radio show, this time with Chris Salt of Oblong Pictures using LEGO stop-motion to lovingly lampoon our favorite alien rock god. In the video, David pitches his wife, Angie Bowie, on new character ideas after deciding to "kill off Ziggy." A...

David Bowie's 11th studio album, "Low," is 42 today

Today marks the 42nd anniversary of the release of David Bowie's mid-70s masterpiece, Low, the first album of his so-called Berlin Trilogy (later joined by "Heroes" and Lodger). Working with the increasingly experimental Brian Eno, this album was a dramatic departure for Bowie and much has been made over the music, the strange (and strangely inspiring) milieu of the West Berlin recording studio up against the Berlin wall, Bowie's continuing battles with the coke monster, the highly experimental ...

Deerhunter Ask 'Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?'

None The title of Deerhunter's eighth album could be a kind of metaphysical question, but the record has an up-close material tone crackling with friction. Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared? wrestles with escapist and confrontational impulses, and continues the band's exploration of shifting sonic identity.Ten years ago, Deerhunter frontman and songwriter Bradford Cox was in the midst of what has so far proven to be his most prolific period. In 2008 alone, Cox put out Let the Blind Lead...

Philip Glass Finishes His David Bowie Trilogy, Debuting His Lodger Symphony

Sometimes I feel The need to move on So I pack a bag And move on Move on --David Bowie, “Move On” We might have been calling it the Lake Geneva Trilogy, given David Bowie’s recuperative sojourn in Switzerland after the emptiness he felt in L.A. The first album in the Berlin Trilogy, Low, was mostly recorded in France, and the last album of the trilogy, Lodger, in Montreaux in 1979. But they were almost all written in, around, and about Berlin, where Bowie found what he was looking for—a ...

The “David Bowie Is” Exhibition Is Now Available as an Augmented Reality Mobile App That’s Narrated by Gary Oldman: For David Bowie’s Birthday Today

Maybe it’s too soon to divide pop music history into “Before David Bowie” and “After David Bowie,” but two years after Bowie’s death, it’s impossible to imagine pop music history without him. Yet, if there ever did come a time when future generations did not know who David Bowie is, they could do far worse than hear Gary Oldman tell the story. Luckily for them, and us, Oldman narrates the new David Bowie augmented reality app, which launches today on what would have been the legend’s 72n...

The 21 Best Album Re-Issues of 2018

Vainqueur's Reductions 1995-1997 is precisely curated to present the stoniest producer on the turn-of-the-millennium Chain Reaction label not as the epitome of non-committal dub-techno drift but as a formidable artist, lining up six of his most beloved pieces in a row and letting them lope for upwards of ten m...

The 10 Best Country Albums of 2018

None No contemporary music genre gets dumped on like country. Despite country's widespread popularity, the common critical argument is that modern country, at least whatever gets played on the radio, is often like fast food: It's taste-tested, mass-produced, and predictable; it goes down easy, and all of it is identical in flavor. Indeed, it is true that a big majority of country radio is made up of interchangeable white male singers: You would be forgiven for not knowing the difference between...

Gamma Ray was the bass worshipping Los Angeles beatsmith's fourth full-length, and continued the naming scheme started on his 2013 debut Alpha Dog and its 2014 follow up Beta Cat. He went positively aquatic with this one, squirting out a bevy of murky downtempo beats that'll have you floating eerily across the dance floor. Given the aggressively humorous note the ...

50 fabulous acts that have played The Forum in Inglewood over 50 years

To kick off its 50th anniversary celebration, The Forum had soul and funk band Earth, Wind & Fire perform atop a float that looked like a mini version of the iconic venue this year during the 129th Annual Rose Parade in Pasadena on New Year’s Day. Though the indoor arena officially opened on Dec. 30, 1967 in Inglewood, it was a multi-use facility and one-time home to the Lakers and the Kings, and didn’t host its first concert until Jan. 22, 1968. The venue has undergone several renovations and h...

How Nicolas Roeg (RIP) Used David Bowie, Mick Jagger & Art Garfunkel in His Mind-Bending Films

Critics have applauded Bradley Cooper for the bold move of casting Lady Gaga in his new remake of A Star Is Born, and as its titular star at that. As much cinematic daring as it takes to cast a high-profile musician in their first starring role in the movies, the act has its precedents, thanks not least to filmmaker Nicolas Roeg, who died last week. Having started out at the bottom of the British film industry, serving tea at London's Marylebone Studios the year after World War II ended,...

Watch David Bowie Take MTV to Task for Failing to Play Music Videos by Black Artists (1983)

The old vaudeville phrase “Will it play in Peoria?” has its roots in the late 19th century, specifically in Horatio Alger’s novel Five Hundred Dollars; Or Jacob Marlowe’s Secret. Like all of the books Alger wrote extolling the virtues of thrift, study, grooming, industry, etc., this one articulates a middle American bootstraps philosophy and rags-to-riches mythology, while giving the entertainment industry a colorful way to sum up the small-town audiences who embraced Alger’s straight-la...
