Jul 28 Lael Neale At El Cid, Saturday, July 26th, 2014 Reviewed
It is just probably a question of time, Lael’s quiet music sure managed to captivate the audience and the chatting stopped as soon as she started playing, which is not an easy thing to accomplish in a bar, but her apparition on stage had something from an angel’s and this can shut up a lot of conversations.

Jul 28 Chronixx And Junior Reid At Central Park Summerstage, Saturday, July 26th, 2014, Reviewed
Towards the end he covered the crown prince of reggae Dennis Brown and nailed it in the afternoon’s most triumphant moment. Despite his youth, he has a certain gravity about him, he is the real deal not a contender for Reggae and for testifying.

Jul 28 The Best of The Kinks – Part II
The picture is Waterloo Station in the mid 1800 but by the time young ray wrote about it, it was an industrial quagmire, Number One? Crawford had this to say: “Waterloo Sunset,” 1967. The most beautiful song I will ever hear.

Jul 28 Unlocking the Truth Teenage Wonder Kids
But when they’re young we can exploit the hell out of them so kudos to Penguin Press for offering the boys a book deal…what? The book is to be a chronicle of their “path to success”. What the hell, are you kidding me?

Jul 28 Kanye West Wins Lawsuit Against COINYE
There was a new digital currency similar to Bitcoin called Coinye, a play on his name, and the logo was a cartoon Kanye wearing his signature shutter shades. I figured Kanye would be a fan, cos he’s in love with himself, but the man was not happy.

Jul 28 The Nostalgia Machine Website Brings You Way Back
I often realized I didn’t remember half of the songs! But obviously the more I advanced in time, the more songs were very familiar. What was successful in 1976? ‘Silly Love Songs’, Wings, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, Elton John & Kiki Dee, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, Queen, ‘Golden Years’, David Bowie and so many others

Jul 28 That Was The week Of July 21st, 2014, That Was
A heavy duty concert week for me, Keith Urban, Action Bronson, Danny Brown, The Roots, Katy Perry and Chronixx, and not a dog in the lot but pride of place goes to Keith because it was just such a cool scene and Keith was a good natured country ramblin’ guy AT FORTY SIX!!!!

Jul 28 UK Top 10 Albums 8-2-14
Ed Sheeran’s fifth week at the top of the UK charts with an amazing 400K units moved and more power to him even if I don’t like the album as much as all those folks, the best moments have grown on me. By the way, quite why Dolly Paton called her new album and a greatest hits collection is well out of my pay bracket.

Jul 28 UK Top 10 Singles 8-2-14
This is as lame as the UK charts have been all, all dance pop more or less all the time, it lacks any change of paste (ok, “Budapest” but otherwise?), when heard like this it feels like extremely manufactured and derivative pop pap, which it is. I meant without the fun.

Jul 28 10 Songs: Monday, July 28th, 2014 Reviewed
Endless Sleeper – The Raveonettes – If I ever ran into this band I would apologize for mistaking them for a tasty movie treat and ignoring their body of work, which like this randomly chosen track off their new album, is uniformly excellent.

Jul 27 The Hickoids, Fred’s Texas Café, Fort Worth, Texas, July 25th, 2014, Reviewed
It’s all about irreverent fun, although the shirtless Smith does bring a layer of sweat and sexuality. The 90 minute set ran a bit too long, this band can say everything it needs to in an hour, and I would have loved to have heard their spleen crushing version of “Brontosaurus” again.

Jul 27 Nina Diaz Loses Her Voice At Levitt Pavilion, Friday July 25th 2014
On Friday night, she really, really tried, like a little soldier, trying to fulfill her mission, ‘let’s just do it’ she said after another shot of spray right in her throat, but I don’t think she was able to finish her second song, she completely lost her voice and it was over

Jul 27 Ian Watkins Loses Appeal for “Too Harsh Punishment” on Pedophile Charges
No one likes a baby abuser but lets face it, it happens. There are levels of ‘social taboo’ and this is pretty high up on the list. There should be more focus placed on the mothers or fathers of these children who basically sacrificed them to a B grade musician

Jul 27 Joyce Manor’s CD Hunt In Los Angeles
I feel special and a bit wily… There was a guy who was hiding envelopes full of cash all over the place in the same area a few weeks ago, and I have never found one, but a CD? I have no problem finding it, go figure.

Jul 27 Susan Sarandon And David Bowie Sitting In A Tree…
rock nyc has nothing to add to this story in which Susan Sarandon tells the Daily Beast she had a sexual relationship with David Bowie when they worked on “The Hunger” together 30 years ago except sexual relationship is the dirtiest of adjectives on earth

Cuz There Aren’t Enough Books About KISS Yet, ‘Nothin’ To Lose: The Making Of KISS (1972-1975)’

560 pages of KISS- o-belia.  As the title of this Ken Sharp book notes these are the ‘formative’ years for the legendary band KISS.  There are only so many ways to tell a storpy before it becomes a farce.  What can be offered up as ‘new’ after all these years?

Rachel Brown’s ‘Four Leaf Clovers’, A Song From Her Debut Album ‘Building Castles’

This new song ‘Four Leaf Clovers’ by Rachel Brown is a bouncy folky tune with her clear and youthful voice hip hoping over percussion and world music fusion that made a stop in Caribbean islands. It is as sun-kissed as a Jack Johnson melody although it is done with less guitar but more rhythmic voices and syncopated African pulse, that could have come from the deepest rainforest.
