Aug 28 Hamish Hamilton’s “David Bowie Is” Reviewed
Nothing is gonna get you too close to Bowie because Bowie has never wanted you to get too close to him. Perhaps his greatest gift was to be so much to so many people while maintaining a mystery, a mystery “Is” doesn’t come close to mastering.

Aug 28 When A Summer Hit Is Plain Plagiarism
She co-wrote the song with Grammy Award-nominated songwriter Kevin Kadish, but unfortunately for the two, there is now a big controversy: she and Kadish may have simply stolen the tune from K-pop band Koyote, who, as many people have pointed out, carries a wild similarity with another tune by the popular band Ph

Aug 28 The Kinks reunion Set For 2014, But No Dave Davies???
I don’t believe the Kinks without Dave is the Kinks, it is something else. Ray might as well get an orchestra again: “Yes, it would. I think it’s all down to the music. If somebody can’t or won’t play, there are other players out there. Mick and I want to do it.”

Aug 28 Pick Next Years City Park Foundation Band… I Say Chance The Rapper Or True Groove Records
Now is your chance to vote but don’t bother with a Taylor Swift or something (though Tay doing a Diana Ross would be a blast) because then you’d never get in. I would actually love True Groove Records to get their own day. Anyway vote as you choose: here is the info.

Aug 28 Not With The Band: On People’s Restless Behavior During Concerts
She had a glass of beer in one hand (of course) her iPhone in the other one, and I wonder where she was during the whole show, loudly chatting on her phone? Good thing she was not around. Why was she even showing up, that’s my question. Next time, check the number on your ticket, and don’t annoy people who want to listen.

Aug 28 US Top 10 Albums 9-6-14
beyond lame and that is if you accept that I underestimated Wiz a little. Though how much can you underestimate a man who spends his life writing love letters to marijuana leafs? And doesn’t even have a sense of humor about it.

Aug 28 US Top 10 Singles 9-6-14
Nearly 600K units moved in the first week, tops in streaming without any streaming services having it, and the fourth most popular first week if akk time AND Taylor already owns another one of them (“Never Ever, etc…”) and, her 60th (yes you read that right, right. It looks like a typo!) Top 100 song. Man, our girl can bring it.

Aug 28 10 Songs: Thursday, August 28th, 2014
Ancient Ways – Interpol – A nice stirring of the pot roiling and reeling sound by a band I have never liked in the slightest but have pulled off a pretty good little ambient rocker – B

Aug 27 Bob Dylan Playing Beacon Theater This November, 2014? Must see? You Have To Ask???
To quote the great man to the great man, I’d see him in anything, I’d stand in line. But even by those standards, four nights at the Beacon Theater? Wow!! Friday November 28th, Saturday, November 29th, Monday, December 1st and Tuesday December 2nd, 2014.

Aug 27 FYF Fest Day 2 Part 1, Sunday August 24th 2014
His music is nice and laid back but I still don’t get the overwhelming love for this Canadian who seems to have been born on some lazy island. I had to run away from my spot where I was starting to feel packed like a sardine, smelling a bit too much weed that people were smoking… that’s beach music, it’s almost Hawaiian pop

Aug 27 Elvis Presley’s “That’s The Way It Is” Reviewed
This was a man who had found his place in the pop world and knew how to perform it. Playing Vegas was not playing Haight Ashbury and although Presley was only 35 years old, he was not embraced the way it should’ve been by the the generation he spawned.

Aug 27 Prince All Over The Websites
So, Helen Bach, our editor cum PR maven, sent me a link from Warner Brothers announcing the release of two new albums. I thought about writing about it, but it hardly seemed worth interrupting the days flow to rush it out. I mean, so what? Nothing personal but it is hardly the most exciting story I’ve ever heard

Aug 27 Aphex Twins Plays The Blame Game With Kanye West
The major labels steal lesser luminaries material as a rule of thumb. The artists don’t pay em, don’t give em props, the labels screw em over, and they never break through and never get credit for their music. It has always been a rough business but right now it is rougher than rough. Man it is a deadly business.

Aug 27 FYF Fest Day 2 Part 2, Sunday August 24th 2014
‘When I was a kid I saw a light/Floating high above the trees one night’, and yeah, it was Built to Spill opening their set on the Lawn stage with their song ‘Goin’ Against you Mind’… and every time I see Built to Spill, I see the light,

Aug 27 rock nyc’s Top 10 Songs Week Of August 25th, 2014
I hope that song at the top grows off me because the last thing I wanna be doing for the next month is typing out. Meanwhile, everything here is quite good and the Black Keys is a little better than quite good. An ordinary week but not without its pleasures.
