Jennifer Aniston To America: “It’s Not Funny To Vote For Kanye”

As you may have heard, America is having a presidential election 11 days from now. You might also have heard that Kanye West, the fashion designer and occasional rap artist, is running.

Stranded – “Post-Meridian”

Stranded is a mysterious/unnamed musician based in Atlanta who is, at least nominally, an electronic artist. The couple of EPs he's released so far bore tinges of house music, but he mixes those with a whole lot of other touchstones: He cites post-punk acts like Bauhaus and PiL alongside the classic '80s 4AD era. It's … More »

The Case Against Pierre Boulez

When conductors manage to continue performing into their eighties, their colleagues tend to soften their views, even of maestros who were once feared and despised. A shock of white hair and a newly tremulous tone of voice in rehearsals has helped many former tyrants come to be seen as benevolent fountains of wisdom. I can think of no other artist for whom this transformation was as complete, or improbable, as Pierre Boulez. When he was a young composer and polemicist in Paris in the 1940s and 1...

OMD’s Organisation Is One Of The Great, Lost Synth-Pop Albums

Orchestral Manouevres In The Dark gave us an archetype. When you think of big end-credits drama and synth-pop swoon, when you think of that shorthand of an '80s prom ballad beamed in from our collective pop culture memory, you think of "If You Leave."
