An evening with Andy Summers (of The Police) at The Regent Theater on Saturday
certainly represents what kids listen to these days
one of my favorite live bands of the moment, the mighty Plague Vendor
It certainly adds some spice to the night
I thought his album should have been absolutely mammoth
all the young sexy girls were very friendly and very talkative, but they sure got hyper excited as soon as they saw Miguel
Miguel came on stage with TVOTR for the last three songs giving the show a much more R&B feel than before, but because the Brooklyn band probably hates to be pigeonholed, they also covered CAN with the help of the pop-soul singer.
Miguel on Fallon wins, though Run The Jewels TV On The Radio come close… I wouldn’t mind catching Leona Lewis on Ellen.
“Make Room” is a non-profit organization that helps poor people pay their rent and with the current homeless problem in New York, it is even more worthwhile if anything. If the City or State really wanted to help the homeless, they’d give money directly to landlords to supplement rent for poor families. Just because you don’t see children on the street doesn’t mean there aren’t children on the street, they are just hidden from view.
the three neo soul albums, one in the second month of the season, and two as the season bows out, made a case for this being the summer where neo soul got important
The Valley – Miguel – I could have sworn this song was going to blow up big, I don’t see why in a market with The Weeknd all over the charts, Miguel isn’t there as well. This sex song is a classic, it is as good as Justin Timberlake at his best – A
Damned – Miguel – To close out his huge new album, here is a straight up rock and roll circa right this second track: a pouning anthem of dark desire, “I’m damned for loving you”. Well, now we know – B+
The thing to keep in mind about this week is it is much less a great song than great album week, the albums accumulate force but without too much stuff sticking out. “people Want to Hear About Love” is the perfect example of a pretty good song on a pretty good album. Most things here are pretty good and also? There will be a lot more of them…
Some weeks are bigger than others and some are just ridiculous in their greatness. This is one of the biggest weeks for pop records in recent history: Miguel, Vince Staples, Neil Young, The Internet, Bilal and Joy Williams all had potential albums of the week. And I can’t listen to them fast enough.
There was something so off about Drake. He started with slow mood songs, moved on to bangerz like “Versace” and A$AP Rocky’s “Fucking Problems” before starting a deadly three song set with Jhene Alko and leaving the stage for a break
