Dec 17 Feels, Burnt Ones, Corners And Cosmonauts At The Echo, Sunday December 14th 2014
I spent another Sunday night at the Echo, and this brought me right back in the middle of last summer, with a ‘Part Time Punks’ soiree featuring Feels, Burnt Ones, Corners and Cosmonauts… another sleep-depraved 24 hours in perspective to start the week, but it was all worth it

Dec 17 Watch Panda Bear’s New Song And Journey
Panda Bear is a mystery to me, and this is the beauty of him and his music. Noah Lennox has dropped a second single off his upcoming ‘Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper’, and the song ‘Boys Latin’ even comes with a very poetic animation video.

Dec 17 The Super Duper version of Darlene Love Singing “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” On Letterman
This would be my 28th year in a row. They never told me not to, but it was an unspoken thing. They couldn’t ask me not to sing ‘Christmas (Baby)’ on another show, but after 10 years, then 15 years, of doing this one song on this one show, I felt I had an obligation to be true to them

Dec 17 Best Albums Of 2014 # 18: Marla Mase’s “Half Life”
Marla is a central presence beckoning you forward till you are in the middle of her world and yet you don’t know where you are. It could be 1974, it could be the day after tomorrow, but you are experience something, not half but a life entire

Dec 17 Last Call: Final Tracks Off New Albums Week Of December 8th, 2014
Don’t those beats sound manufactured? They’re like doubled up and then some tom toms are added, and just before that and during that a sonic boom and a lot of vocal “uhs” and a rapper who sounds an awful lot like a kiddie Snoop. Not bad at all – B+

Dec 17 Must See: The Temptations And The Four Tops On Broadway, January 2015
if the Temptations still has Otis and Duke Fakir is the only name I recognize in the Four Tops, but then again after Levi Stubbs it’s a little hard to care and since Levi has left the building, here we are now with two original member between two groups who are playing a week at the Palace on Broadway

Dec 17 10 Songs: Wednesday, December 17th, 2014
Betray My Heart – D’Angelo, The vanguard – The question here is, is he being intentionally obtuse or is his soul ear failing him. Sounds great either way – B+

Dec 16 Be Here Now: First Reviews Of New Albums, December 17th, 2014
The “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” is one of the most glorious things you’ll hear this year and the entire three hour manifestation of jam meets Pink Floyd (live) is exceptionally great, channeling the late Richard Wright before the entire band and especially Haynes whose opening solo will ring on long after it’s over, blasts it to the edges. – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A

Dec 16 Tomas Doncker’s Band “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding” Reviewed
In Doncker’s hands, it is a warning and a prayer. It says, we better stop shooting and stop looting,w e better raise our kids and teach the cops, or we will discover exactly what is so unfunny about peace, love and understanding.

Dec 16 D’Angelo And the Vanguard’s “Black Messiah” Reviewed
when you don’t have songs you make art. Hard to deny, and for sure Black Messiah is no Voodoo –the songs aren’t there, they are all multi layered vocals on top (and inside) funk grooves where another beat replaces the melody line time after time.

Dec 16 Cat Stevens Calling For Salman Rushdie’s Death In 1989 Was Role Playing
In 1989, during the heat and height of the Satanic Verses controversy, I was silly enough to accept appearing on . . . Hypotheticals, which posed imaginary scenarios by a well-versed (what if . . . ?) barrister, Geoffrey Robertson. . . . I foolishly made light of certain provocative questions.

Dec 16 Not With The Band: Drummers Are The Smartest?
A psychology professor at the University of Washington who ‘used rhythmic light and sound therapy on his students and discovered that their grades improved’. Other studies have even used the same method on middle school boys with ADD, with successful results!

Dec 16 Best Albums Of 2014, #19: Girlpool’s Same Named Debut EP
Pass on Haim, pass on Best Coast, but leave yourself open to this terrific L.A. band, a weird proto feminism about railing at diminished romantic and other expectations.

Dec 16 Chris Rock’s “Top 5″ Reviewed
Chris doesn’t believe his own concept, and definitely without the easy mix of memory, fantasy and future shock. there is something about it just almost not quite good enough, like the title riff on best five rappers, or like the hellbent on happening pseudo romance or even the entire alcoholism subtext.
