St. Vincent talks bringing ‘Daddy’s Home’ to Hollywood Bowl as ‘The Nowhere Inn’ film debuts

“Daddy’s Home,” the sixth studio album from St. Vincent, arrived in May, but Annie Clark, the artist behind the stage name, says it hasn’t felt fully finished until now. “A record doesn’t really feel complete to me until I’ve actually played the songs for people and with people in real-time,” Clark says on a recent phone call. “Because you get to see how the energy in the crowd changes. “You get to see, like, ‘Oh, they’re all singing along to that part,’” she says. “You get to know in a real way...

Foo Fighters celebrate 26th anniversary at The Forum with hits, new songs, deep cuts and surprises

During some of the darkest days in the past 18 months, music fans were given a ray of sunshine in the form of an 11-year-old British drummer who challenged Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana anchor Dave Grohl to a virtual drum-off. Following weeks of back and forth banter and displays of insane skills, Grohl conceded to his “arch-nemesis” and declared Nandi Bushell the winner. For the first time ever, Bushell and Grohl came face-to-face during the band’s rescheduled and sold-out show at The Forum...

Questlove’s ‘Summer of Soul’ revives lost history, performances from Stevie Wonder, Sly Stone, more

By Jake Coyle “Like a rose coming through the concrete” is one description of 1969’s Harlem Cultural Festival heard in Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s exuberant, illuminating documentary “Summer of Soul (…or: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’).” The event, held the same summer as Woodstock, drew together Nina Simone, a 19-year-old Stevie Wonder (a genius already), Sly and the Family Stone (the lone act to hit Woodstock, too), B.B.

I Hate Recycling

I have a confession to make: I am a horrible recycler. Even though my job is to think about and chronicle the fate of our polluted planet, I still often can’t be asked to rinse out my plastic containers or find a recycling can on the street when I’m done with my Coke. My even darker confession: With how broken our…Read more...

"Starting with the Moog and adding other synthesizers and a collection of modules, some of them designed by Mr. Cecil, they created a massive semicircular piece of equipment..."

"... that took up a small room and weighed a ton. It could be programmed to create a vast array of original sounds and to modify and process the sounds of conventional musical instruments.... Mr. Cecil lived in an apartment above the studio so that he would be available to fix anything that might go wrong, day or night. 'I get a ring on the bell,' Mr. Cecil told Red Bull Music Academy in 2014. 'I look out; there’s my friend Ronnie and a guy who turns out to be Stevie Wonder in a green pistachio ...

Increasing Disabled/Other-Abled Representation in Media — Pretty Much Pop: A Culture Podcast #83 At least 20% of us have some sort of disability, yet such conditions are reflected by only tiny portion of TV and film characterizations, and what characters are portrayed typically get played by non-disabled actors. Depictions often focus on what it’s like to live with the condition. This can of course be socially beneficial, but we don’t want to essentialize people as their conditions, ...

How the Rage of Stevie Wonder’s ‘You Haven’t Done Nothin’’ Helped Shape the Politics of Hip-Hop

Popular music has always been an escapist art form, but in 1974, it went extra soft. Olivia Newton-John’s teary, chart-topping “I Honestly Love You” would go on to be the Grammys’ record of the year, and 1974’s other number-ones, were, for the most part, easy listening, from Jim Croce’s “Time in a Bottle” to Helen […]

Which LA radio station is on top, plus more about Southern California ratings

KOST (103.5 FM) absolutely dominated the Nielsen radio ratings for Los Angeles in December, or the so-called Holiday ratings period. The Holiday ratings had KOST at 13.9, almost three times the rating of second-place KRTH (101.1 FM), which earned a 5.0 share. That’s an even bigger spread than the previous period and may be a ratings high for KOST. The holidays were good for KFI (640 AM) as well, which was a strong third-place finisher at 4.7, followed by KTWV The Wave, 94.7 FM) at 3.9 and KBIG (...

‘Summer of Soul’ Review: A Joyous Celebration of a Forgotten Music Festival [Sundance 2021]

The 1969 Woodstock music festival, which featured performances by artists like Joni Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who, seared its way into the public consciousness almost immediately and became an almost mythical touchstone for the anti-establishment movement of the 1960s. But that same summer, 100 miles away, the Harlem Cultural Festival – which would later be nicknamed “Black Woodstock” – featured an equally incredible lineup of Black musicians and performers. Even though it was filmed by a...

Singer-songwriter Tori Kelly kicked off her two-evening run of drive-in holiday concerts at City National Grove of Anaheim’s Drive-In OC on a seemingly perfect night. It was the winter solstice, and the planets aligned and the Christmas star shone brightly.
