Sep 23 ‘Too Bright’ By Perfume Genius Reviewed
The album is filled with brief songs transcribing an impressive range of raw emotions with gorgeous piano melodies, melancholic strings, experimental synths, electronic violence, piercing screams, noisy beats and Hadreas’ fierce and touching vocals.

Sep 23 Not With The Band: When Uber Fans Go Under The Knife
‘The treatment, which Dr. Mason perfected by slicing a small section of the eyelid, has been dubbed by local fanatics as the “Yorke cut.” In the simplest terms, the $600 surgery gives fans a chance to re-create on their own person the trademark Thom Yorke amblyopic left eye.’

Sep 23 Lauryn Hill: Finished With Torturing The US, Inflicts Herself On The UK
Now it is the UK’s turn to learn their lesson. A twitterer wrote: “Dear God of RNB singers, I ask that in your mercy, you speak to Lauryn Hill’s heart and make her perform ONE song normally”.

Sep 23 Bad News For Bowie Fans
CNN, I didn’t say new Bowie album ‘soon’. I quoted THE MAN who said ‘More Music Soon’ on Bowienet. That music is Sue.” Ergo, the new song we already know about. I am guessing Bowie is so rich he is happy not hitting the road and as Tony noted, he didn’t lift a finger to promote The Next Day.

Sep 23 La Roux Talks, Just Not To Us, About Not Making Money On her records
Having all the music in the world for a set fee, I hope one day it works and benefits the artist as much as I think it should. I think that’s what all those services are hopefully trying to work towards, but at the moment it’s difficult and there is so, so little money in music. I’ve never made any money from record sales, and we sold nearly 8 million records if you count all the single

Sep 23 “Funky World: A True Groove Club/Dub/Dance Compiliation” Review
It is the dub portion that really blows your mind, “Bato Bese” sounds like dub goes to broadway, it is a strange and beautiful thing and even with that the album reaches its zenith with the large and transgressive the Mighty Diamond’s cover “Why Me Black Brother Why” – Lee “Scratch” Perry would be proud to put his name on

Sep 23 Last Call: Week of September 15th, 2014
Another week, another column. Here we are going to listen to the last track of ten albums released the previous week, to see how it closes up and to say goodbye to albums we probably wont have the chance to listen to again till the end of the month.

Sep 23 10 Songs: Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014
Yellow And Blue – Megan Washington – Indie pop, the dreamy sort which buzzes you sweetly so filled with emotion and feeling and all that other good stuff but a little unfulfilling once you dig in – B

Sep 22 BEDROCKtoberfest Curated By Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Saturday September 20th 2014
Bedrock-LA is like Disneyland for musicians, a giant 40,000 square feet music-service facility, located in the heart of Echo Park. And Bedrock has its fest, Bedrocktoberfest, which is a bit premature since we are still in September, but they probably wanted a good reason to sell good German beer

Sep 22 ’24 Karat Gold’, A Stevie Nicks’ Personal Collection Of Polaroids Selfies
The self-portraits, which were taken with Polaroid cameras between 1975 and 1987, were selected by Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, whereas the exhibit will conveniently coincide with the release of her album ’24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault’, consisting of songs she wrote between 1969 and 1987

Sep 22 Taylor Swift Vs Every Celebrity In The World
I stole this off Popdust here so if you wanna see the original go there but if you wanna stay here, I’ve simplified it and sneered at all the right places just for you. Plus, in my world young Tay tay can do no wrong so, guess what? It’s all everyone elses fault. Oh and I graded em because that’s what we do.

Sep 22 Medium Cool: The Week In Talk Show Hosts 9-22-14
I haven’t been to Las Vegas since 1975 so maybe next year I should do it. I wanna see the Beatles “Love”, Britney’s solo show and this the second Michael Jackson-Cirque De Soliel collaboration. I skipped the first show when it played MSG and I kinda regret it. On Letterman on Thursday I can take a a look at # 2.

Sep 22 UK Top 10 Singles 9-27-14
Bass and drums, bass and drums, certainly you cant throw a brick without hitting bass and drums. The first four tracks are interchangeable, EDM plus pro vocals. Now that the UK hasn’t broken up, maybe they should start on making their charts work.

Sep 22 UK Top 10 Albums 9-27-14
Yuck. The Script is awful and their album cover is worse, Babs is just as bad, Catfish & The Bottlemen are predictable UK rockers, and only Chris Brown is both new and good and, well, he is Chris Brown. You need a shower after listening to him.
