15 Essential Scott Walker Songs

Editor's note: This feature was original published on 28 November 2012. We are re-running it today to celebrate the groundbreaking music of Scott Walker who recently passed away.Most great artists have occasional disputes with their muses as they negotiate the realities of popular appeal. Few of these struggles equal those of longtime American expatriate Scott Walker, whose oeuvre is effectively a series of ultimatums, breakups, and passionate embraces with a stubborn inspiration that, over the ...

An Artist Imagines If Popular Sodas Were Cartoon Character

Coca-Cola, Sprite, Fanta, we know our favorite sodas by their taste but what would they be like if they were a little more… human? Maybe we’d like to go grab a drink with them? Maybe they’d be so obnoxious, we couldn’t resist slapping them? Luckily, we don’t have to guess anymore. Korea-born Canadian artist who goes by nickname Sillvi has masterfully transformed some of the most popular sodas into... Source

'Ashes to Ashes' Is the Second Half of Chris O’Leary’s Deep Dive into all Things Bowie

For those who have ever wondered if a blog can become a book, Chris O'Leary would respond with a hearty yes: his blog, Pushing Ahead of the Dame yielded two books. The current edition, Ashes to Ashes, begins in 1976, as David Bowie and Iggy Pop are planning to escape the dregs of life in Los Angeles and set up shop in Berlin. O'Leary adds a quick note to bring the reader up to date, had they missed his first volume, Rebel Rebel (Zero Books, 2015) covering Bowie's creative work from 1964 to 1976....

Louis Cole: Doing The Things (Short Song)

Instantly recognizable as a Louis Cole bop, the delightful “Doing The Things (Short Song)” has just been released—and is also a teaser for the upcoming Live Sesh and Xtra Songs EP, which is due out on 5 April. Melting together funk, pop and so much more, the track is off-kilter in the best possible way. The LA-based singer/songwriter/producer and multi-instrumentalist is also heading out on tour—from …

CRUISR ‘Opening Up’

I’m liking the melodic-dancey track Opening Up by CRUISR. Think 1975 meets Two Door Cinema Club. The band tells Kings, “Opening Up is a song about our relationship with love. In our youth we usually embrace our first loves, unknowingly exposing ourselves to harm. As we grow wiser, many people try to control or avoid love, for the sake of self-preservation. By doing this, we end up missing out on so much joy, because we fear the pain that comes with it. Opening Up asks the listener to let go and...

Sleepy Tom Adds Some Pop Gloss to His Dance Sound on "Amateurs" (premiere + interview)

What was the first thing you came up with when writing Amateurs, a melody, a beat, a sound? I was working on my laptop in my apartment (my studio was being used by a friend) and started with the drums, I think. Could have been the piano as well, as that's the part that really inspired the song. I had the verse progression for a while before I figured out how to change the chords in the chorus to give it a big lift. How easily did it all come together? The demo sat on my computer for a whi...
