Jarvis Cocker – “Aline” (Christophe Cover)

Way back in February of 2020, the first trailer for Wes Anderson’s new movie The French Dispatch hit the internet, and it featured a piece of music that was both familiar and unfamiliar. The that played at the end of the trailer was a bit of a standard — “Aline,” a huge 1965 hit for the French singer Christophe — but the recording was different. As it turns out, that voice belonged to the former Pulp leader Jarvis Cocker. And now, with the long-delayed theatrical release of The French Exit loomi...

Alexis Taylor – “House Of The Truth”

Hot Chip are still plenty active. Last year, the great UK synthpop act released a Late Nite Tales mix and teamed up with Jarvis Cocker on their single “Straight To The Morning.” But this year, the guys in the band are off doing other things, too. Joe Goddard, for instance, recently formed Hard Feelings, a new duo with the New York singer Amy Douglas, and they’ll release their debut album this fall. Meanwhile, Alexis Taylor is preparing to release his new solo album Silence, and we’ve already pos...

‘The French Dispatch’ Review: Wes Anderson’s Whimsical New Masterwork is a Symphony of Excess [Cannes]

Watching Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch is a delirious experience. It’s akin to being a guest at some amazing meal, with each course more stunning than the last, and just as you wish to take in a moment to admire each dish, the crumbs are whisked away for a new treat to be delivered by nimble servers. It’s a film that weaponizes whimsy in ways that will dazzle die-hard fans of the director. As long as your heart is open, your ears attuned to the pace of the proceedings and eyes accustomed t...

John Berger was a Lifelong Cultural Agitator with a Valuable Point of View

None At first glance, titling the first intellectual biography of John Berger A Writer of Our Time appears to be a simple homage to Berger's 1958 novel, A Painter of Our Time. Joshua Sperling instead sets out the title as an argument, providing powerful evidence that Berger was indeed a writer of our time. Had Sperling set out to tell the story of 20th century art through Berger's work, the project would likely have been smothered in artifice. Yet by carefully laying out the path of Berger's a...

The 10 Best Indie Rock Albums of 2018

None Indie rock may be one of the most fluid and intangible terms currently imposed upon musicians. It holds no real indication of what the music will sound like, and many of the artists aren't even independent. But more than a sonic indicator, indie rock represents a spirit. It's a spirit found where folk songsters and punk rockers come together to dialogue about what they're fed up with in mainstream culture. In so doing they uplift each other and celebrate each other's unique qualities. He...

The festival’s seventh year was a wild one — with severe weather that cut short Tame Impala’s set on Friday night and a mellow and cool Saturday that hit the reset button before a perfect beach day on Sunday was capped off by My Bloody Valentine melting everyone’s faces off. These images from photographer Drew A. Kelley show you what it was like to be there. Stefan Burnett of the band Death Grips performs ...

Desert Daze 2018: What you need to know about the first two days of the festival

Desert Daze packed plenty of drama in its first two days at the Lake Perris State Recreation Area. On Friday night, severe thunderstorms rolled through, prompting organizers to pull the plug on the whole night early in Tame Impala’s set. A day later, it was like the rain had washed away the bad vibes of the night before (and the opening day parking woes) with hours of psychedelic rock at the lakeside park. But Friday wasn’t all bad. Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker brought his new project Jarv Is, which inc...

The Desert Daze music festival got off to a stormy start Friday as festival goers waited hours to park onsite at Lake Perris State Recreation Area before the sky erupted into thunderstorms that abruptly ended the concert’s opening night. Headliner Tame Impala was on the festival’s largest stage when the plug was pulled during the violent thunderstorms that ripped through Southern California.
