Oct 31 Taylor Swift’s “1989” Reviewed
You compromise, you throw yourself at your work, your home, your friends, you shake it up and you shake it off, and you even compromise with the guy and become buddies with benefits and then in the end, the pain isn’t gone, it is just dulled

Oct 31 Listen to ‘May As Well’ By Angel Olsen, A Song Released For Her Deluxe Edition
’May As Well’ is streaming on my computer right now and the song is so moving and touching it pierces you right in your heart, your soul, your guts or wherever you believe your being resides, but in any case, it is a deep experience

Oct 31 David Guetta Gets An All-Star Cast For His Next Album
There is a satirical series on French TV, very inspired by the British show Spitting image, which makes fun of Guetta all the time. In one episode, a piano maker is tailoring a piano for Guetta, and of course the piano has only one note

Big Apple Blues – Tomas Docker Band – Yusef Komunyakaa and Tomas Doncker concern themselves with what people do and don’t do for each other, with a sidetrip to Alabama and a layover in Fun City.

Oct 31 Yusuf’s “Tell ‘Em I’m Gone” Reviewed
Just what the world needs right now: a born again religious fanatic singing the blues. And singing it if no not badly, with a song here and a song there even better than that, not very well either

Oct 31 Singles Going Steady: New Singles Released Week of October 27th, 2014
Stay Awhile – She & Him – The thing about tackling Dusty springfield with a 20 piece orchestra behind you is if he isn’t terrible then it must be good because this enormously tedious duo are honor bound to screw it up, but this is an effective version – B

Oct 31 10 Songs: Friday, October 30th, 2014
CCM makes God into the ultimate agent for the NSA, the US Church seems to be in the market to anthropomorphize the mystical and mythical: how awful. But weight it as you may, it doesn’t outweigh this song of obedience and adoration- C+

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

Active Viewin': Concert Picks For Week Of September 23rd, 2013

you can still feel it all over

Sure, you’ll be a 100 miles away and sure you will have to sit through the dreaded Alicia Keys and almost as dreaded John Mayer to get there, but IT IS LITTLE STEVIE WONDER and any chance to see this great songwriter, one of the greatest of all times, must be seized with both hands and cherished. I’ve seen him a number of times and it has never come within a million miles of disappointing me.  On Saturday (which is good) but at the Great Lawn of Central Park is not ideal (Radio City was ideal) but this is a huge gig. A must see. It is a benefit so go to globalfestival.com and figure it out for yourself.

Gigs, Man – The Del Lords Return This October

The rock and roll band of the moment return to New York

Early last summer, I had the wise guy idea of going to see Buddy Guy and the Del Lords on the same night. The mathematics was simply Buddy at 8pm, Del Lords, last of three bands, at 1030p. Makes sense, right? Nope, I missed all of the Del Lords gig, they went on second not third, except for the final five minutes of Neil Young’s “Southern Pacific”
