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...

John Cale – “Lazy Day”

John Cale is always around -- just recently, in fact, he popped up on the excellent Kelly Lee Owens track "Corner Of My Sky." He's always working on something or another, but now it's been a bit since he's released a new album. (His last, 2016's M:FANS, was a reimagining of his 1982 … More »

Andrew Bird – “Andalucia” (John Cale Cover)

Andrew Bird has a lot going on these days. Many years ago, the handsome whistling bastard was a member of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, the briefly-huge swing revivalists. Last month, Bird reunited with the Zippers for the first time in 22 years, performing a song for NPR's remote cameras. Bird is also More »

Watch the Velvet Underground's John Cale on "I've Got A Secret" TV game show in 1963

While the maestro John Cale is best known as a founder of the Velvet Underground, his association with the group followed Cale's deep involvement with the avant-garde classical music scene. During the early 1960s, Cale performed with John Cage, La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, and many others, and pioneered the drone/minimalist sound that continues to… Read More

Hear Brian Eno’s Rarely-Heard Cover of the Johnny Cash Classic, “Ring of Fire”

"Ring of Fire" has been covered many times and in many ways since Johnny Cash released it in 1963. But for all its recognition as one of his signature songs, Cash's "Ring of Fire" is itself a cover — or another interpretation, in any case, of a tune originally written by Cash's wife June Carter and songwriter Merle Kilgore for June's sister, Anita Carter. Though it made nothing like the mark Cash's recording did, the original "Ring of Fire" has its appreciators, a group that may well inc...

1980's 12-year-old post-punk sensation Chandra sings "Concentration"

Reddit: Chandra Oppenheim’s story is one of the most innocent but interesting stories to come out of post-punk NYC. After glam moved into punk and punk moved into post-punk/new wave/no wave/noise/outsider disco/mutant disco/art punk/etc/etc, it was a musical free for all. So it makes sense that an unassuming 12-year-old from Brooklyn would enter the scene backed by a post-punk, outsider disco group under the name Chandra. Chandra Oppenheim was just twelve years old when her debut album ‘T...

Listen to Brian Eno's beautiful cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire"

In 1990, Brian Eno and John Cale made a wonderful experimental pop/art rock record called Wrong Way Up, released by Warner Bros. Records. At the time, the label would send out 7" records to alt.rock/college radio stations to promote their new releases. The promo series, called Soil Samples, featured different artists on each side of the record performing songs that weren't included on their new albums. Above is Brian Eno's contribution to Soil Samples #3, a sublime cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring...

Bryce Dessner: I’m the Same Musician Wherever I Go

Bryce Dessner is the first person we have ever featured on NewMusicBox who glowingly talked about both Paul Simon and Helmut Lachenmann. Like many of the most inventive creative musical minds of the early 21st century, Dessner does not compartmentalize music into different genres. However, it is clear that he has learned different lessons from his immersion into different kinds of music-making and that these lessons have made him a stronger musician, whether he is writing songs and playing lead ...

Bauhaus thrills at Hollywood Palladium as reunited goth icons play first show in 13 years

Not until the very end of the night did any of four members of Bauhaus, playing together for the first time since 2006, speak directly to the crowd in the packed Palladium on Sunday, and then only a quick acknowledgment — “Thank you for welcoming us back” — from singer Peter Murphy. But no one in the packed venue needed Murphy, guitarist Daniel Ash, bassist David J or drummer Kevin Haskins to tell them how momentous this night was. It’s been 40 years since the English post-punk band’s debut sing...

Soul Serenade: Rufus Thomas, “Walking the Dog”

“His music … brought a great deal of joy to the world, but his personality brought even more, conveying a message of grit, determination, indomitability, above all a bottomless appreciation for the human comedy that left little room for the drab or the dreary in his presence.” — Peter Guralnick As Dr. King once famously said, longevity has its place.

Leonard Cohen’s Last Work, The Flame Gets Published: Discover His Final Poems, Drawings, Lyrics & More

It's a perverse irony or an apt metaphor: Leonard Cohen is best known for a song that took him five years to write, and that went almost unheard on its debut, in part because the head of Columbia’s music division, Walter Yetnikoff, refused to release Cohen’s 1985 album Various Positions in the U.S. “Leonard, we know you’re great,” said Yetnikoff, “We just don’t know if you’re any good.” It might have been Cohen’s summation of life itself. It wasn’t until Jeff Buckley’s electric gospel cover in ...

10 Movies That Somehow Didn’t Win an Oscar

10 movies that somehow didn’t win an Oscar The Academy Award is the greatest honor a movie can receive. An Oscar win gives a film’s box office draw a boost and allows the cast and crew to land bigger, better projects in the future. Oddly enough, sometimes a deeply moving film or an industry-changing classic doesn’t win a single Oscar. These are some of our beloved films snubbed by the Academy. 10.

Hear the Very First Pieces of Ambient Music, Erik Satie’s Furniture Music (Circa 1917)

Who invented ambient music? Many fans of the genre might say Brian Eno, though Brian Eno himself makes no such claim. Still, the records he labeled with the word "ambient" in the 1970s and 80s did much to popularize not just the term, but a certain conception of the form itself. "For me, the central idea was about music as a place you go to," he said in an interview about his recent ambient album Reflection. "Not a narrative, not a sequence that has some sort of teleological direction to...

Enter Digital Archives of the 1960s Fluxus Movement and Explore the Avant-Garde Art of John Cage, Yoko Ono, John Cale, Nam June Paik & More

When it comes to the influence of the arts on everyday life, it can seem like our reality derives far more from Jeff Koons’ “augmented banality” than from the Fluxus movement’s playful experiments with chance, conceptual rigor, and performance. But perhaps in the face of Jeff Koons world, these are precisely the qualities we need. Mainly based in New York, and “taking shape around 1959,” notes the University of Iowa’s Fluxus: A Field Guide, “the international cohort of artists known as Fluxus e...
