Oct 30 Country Musical Festival June 2015 At Randall’s Island? Great Line Up And Pros Behind It
Still, for a three day show, from June 26th to June 28th, the $225 General Admission and $599 for VIP three day passes sound reasonable to me. The way to go is VIP if you can swing it, it is really a blast to swagger up to the lip of the stage.

Oct 30 Spanking Charlene’s “Sugar Love” Reviewed
Spanking as in brand spanking new, Spanking Charlene’s new single “Sugar Love” is with us and it is a goodie, if it doesn’t have the mainstream manipulations of Eric Amble or the garage rock pressure points of Little Stevie, what Charlene McPherson is a fresh live take on her latest release

Oct 30 Listen To The New Collaboration Haim-Calvin Harris
Is it me, or the tune even sounds la bit ike the Police at 0:58 and at 1:57? Because yes, it goes back into circles, a bit pop-dance, taking a full disco ball level, then these half-hushed Fleetwood-Mac-like multi voices and then open dance floor again….

Oct 30 Let Taylor Swift Water Down New York City For You
NYC has neighborhoods with good lattes, NYC has good people, and NYC is big but cozy at the same time… She also dares to teach people about NYC’s vocabulary, words she is obviously learning as she speaks/reads…

Oct 30 David Bronson’s “Songbird” Reviewed
The question, the opinion, the axiom Bronson has found is superb “outside I hear a songbird and I think she has it right, she is just singing, she is not asking why”. There is a deep and simple truth here and a song to back it up

Oct 30 US Top 10 Singles: 11-8-14
“With its eighth week atop the Hot 100, “Bass” breaks the mark for the longest-leading No. 1 single in Epic Records history. How does she earn the honor? By passing the King of Pop”

Oct 30 US Top 10 Albums 11-8-14
I was somewhat surprised at the top two, though on the other hand the numbers are not all that startling. None of them are. If, next week, Taylor Swift sells as money copies as this entire top ten list times THREE, it will be considered a borderline failure.

Oct 30 10 Songs: Thursday, October 30th, 2014
Outrageously brilliant piece of tongue in cheek celebrity kiss off by the tally Ho member, an excellent faux-opera gallop with strings and children’s choir telling the epic story of the defeat of cannibal Shia, who had the good humor to appear in the video – A

Oct 29 The Allman Brothers, Monday, October 27th, 2014 Reviewed
While Gregg and Warren shared the lead on “Blind Willie McTell”, and Warren was spectacular on “Dreams” . Oteil was a signal post on a band with three drummers and if Derek has had better nights, whenever the two guitarists went after it it was lights out. But it was really Greg’s night

Oct 29 Listen to Aphex Swift!
Both artists have released a new album, so I understand why Rees picked these two, but honestly have Taylor Swift’s fans even heard of Aphex Twin The result is an 8-tract album cleverly entitled ‘Aphex Swift’ but my favorite part is Rees’s explanation

Oct 29 CMJ’S Music Marathon Presents DMA’s At Pianos, Saturday, October 25th, 2014, Reviewed
When the band turns up the volume, they shake and when they lower the volume the volume they shudder. The prettiness and intensity of Tommy’s voice makes up with Johnny’s look of aggrieved hostility and moodiness on stage and second guitarist Matt Mason who sings back up so well you think he could front the band

Oct 29 Let’s Think Again About This Post-It ‘Suicide’ Note
About one in five people who commit suicide leave a note, so of course it makes a big impression when there is one, but there is a very large literature regarding studies which look for clues to determine differences between genuine suicide notes and simulated suicide notes

Oct 29 Album Sales For The week
I still contend that ITunes will not be killed by streaming it will be killed by price. What Lefsetz skips out on is that people who are not music fans will not shell out ten bucks a month. If a CD cost as much as a Mocha Grande, sales would return and fast.

Oct 29 CMJ’S Music Marathon Presents Circa Waves At Pianos, Saturday, October 25th, 2014, Reviewed
around the 14th band I’ve seen in a four day period and the third guitar rock band starring 20 something boys in three hours, it is beginning to all sound the same. If you add to that the less then brilliant acoustics at Pianos and your ears turn to jelly. On record the songs signify, at Pianos they seem to lack distinction.

Glad To be Gay

I wrote about “the N Word” the other day and “the C Word” ? Well “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ansler seemed to deal with it very thoroughly.Besides which, why is it worse than calling a man the “d” word. But which I mean Dick, or prick, and which I can say all day long. See? dick,prick,dick, prick.

It’s Saturday night at Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY, to see one of my all-time favorite performers. The stage is framed like a Retro Amphitheater with curves reminding me of a piano. Scarlet. Smoky. Sexy. What a legendary night in NYC!

Kanye West’s “Yeezus” Improves With Age

GOD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My first impression of Kanye West’s Yeezus was half of it was a masterpiece and half of it was very good and now I think it is all a masterpiece.  Clocking in at 40 minutes in length, every track reveals itself in time and lines fly out at you and slap you to attention. The first track, “Out Of Sight” is a spike of liquid acid with all the hallucinations turned inside out: intead of being surrealistic, it is serate sharp thuderring rock rhythm. The whirl of synth that introduces you to it explains why Lou Reed worded Metal Machine Music when he wrote about it.
