Nas Illmatic xx

Twenty Years Later, Nas’ “Illmatic” is Even Iller

Nas always had a thing for nostalgia.  He is fantastic at remembering past glory, whether it be historical (“I Can”) or his own – which is what this whole album is about.  Illmatic XX reflects on where Nas came from, and celebrates the Golden Era in East Coast hip-hop.  On the 20th anniversary of Nas’ 1994 debut album, the classic Illmatic, the lyricist (now 40) reminds us how he captured […]

Ingrid Michaelson Lights Out

Ingrid Michaelson “Lights Out”—Album Review

By today’s popstar image standards, Ingrid Michaelson’s popularity is sometimes a bit of an anomaly. Flying in the face of current tactics such as overused autotune, overloud mastering, controversial fashion choices and provocative public behavior (whether on or off stage), Michaelson has built a persona based on understatement, maintaining a girl-next-door look and publicly downplaying her own talent.  And yet, ask almost any aspiring singer-songwriter today (particularly of the female […]

Kiesza

Introducing: Kiesza

From the ballet to the Canadian military to the world of beauty contests, it’s unlikely that anyone from the current wave of 90s house revivalists has experienced a route to success as intriguing as that of flame-haired, Calgary-born vocalist Kiesza. The 25-year-old first began her career in the Royal Canadian Navy aged just sixteen, where she became renowned for her code-breaking and sharp-shooting skills. However, after realising that she could […]

The Black Keys Turn Blue

The Black Keys Unveil New Track “Turn Blue”

After the monumental success of  2011’s El Camino, which went on to earn The Black Keys a whopping four Grammys,  bandmates Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are back to try again with a much anticipated new release titled Turn Blue.  This week, the duo dropped the title track of the album as a teaser. Two things intrigue me about this track.  First of all, it’s got a steady-but-chill midtempo groove […]

AC/DC

Not So Fast: AC/DC Not Calling It Quits

For the past 48 hours or so, the rumor mill (i.e., the Internet) has been churning with speculation that Aussie hard rock act AC/DC were on the verge of retirement due to a “serious illness” of one of the bandmates.  However, in a recent conversation with The Telegraph, frontman Brian Johnson refuted those rumors, stating that the band were still planning to get together to record new material. “We are […]

Chet Faker Built on Glass

Chet Faker “Built On Glass” – Album Review

Following in the footsteps of his recent partner-in-crime Flume, bearded hipster Chet Faker, aka Melbourne singer-producer Nicholas Murphy, is the latest Australian dance act to make waves in the U.S., having soundtracked a 2013 Super Bowl commercial with his intriguing cover of Blackstreet’s New Jack Swing classic, “No Diggity.” Inspired by both his mother’s Motown and father’s Ibiza chill out record collection, his debut album, Built On Glass, pursues a […]

Coldplay Magic

Coldplay Release New “Magic” Video

In keeping with their apparent new bent toward the electro side of soft rock, this week Coldplay released their new single “Magic,”  accompanied by a music video that is every bit as captivating as the song itself. Similar in its repetitive nature to their earlier single “Midnight,” “Magic” has a slightly more upbeat drum loop, as well as much stronger pop sensibilities.  The result is a singable, ear-wormy deal that […]

Legendary Rappers Make Eligibility List for Rock Hall of Fame

There really in no bigger honor.  Being inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has become, in our society, the pinnacle of an artist’s career.  Bigger than a Grammy, a Pepsi endorsement, or a sold-out Madison Square Garden Concert, induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the cultural stamp of legend.  This year, the induction ceremony takes place on Thursday, April 10 at the Barclays […]

Squarepusher Music for Robots

Squarepusher “Music For Robots” – Album Review

Renowned for pushing the boundaries of electronic music via various sonic experiments, IDM pioneer Tom Jenkinson, aka Squarepusher, now debuts arguably his most ambitious enterprise yet with Music For Robots, a five-track EP produced in conjunction with a team of Japanese roboticists and their mechanised ‘power trio’ creation, Z-Machines. Arriving twelve months after German scientists constructed a heavy metal covers band entirely out of robots, and just a few weeks […]

SOHN Tremors

SOHN “Tremors” – Album Review

Described as Justin Timberlake-meets-Thom Yorke during his time fronting alt-R&B project Trouble Over Tokyo, Austrian-based London producer Christopher Taylor doesn’t appear to have been too troubled by such a label, judging by Tremors, his first studio effort under the guise of SOHN. Indeed, there are shades of the former ‘N Sync star throughout the album’s eleven poignant tales of unrequited love (most evidently with the piercing falsetto which first soars […]

The Killers Hot Fuss

Rock Rewind: The Killers “Mr. Brightside”

It’s been barely a decade since Vegas-based alt-rockers The Killers released their debut album Hot Fuss.  Four albums later, they are hailed by many as one of the vanguards of the post-punk revival and one of the best bands of the 2000s.  “Mr. Brightside” is the song that started it all. The debut single off their debut album, “Mr. Brightside” had already put The Killers on the map in the […]

Chris Evans Can’t Wait For Michael B Jordan To Take On The Human Tourch

The Human Torch is arguably the role that put Chris Evans on the map. It propelled him from pretty boy actor with some memorably roles to a leading man. Strangely, Michael B Jordan is in a similar boat. He’s had some memorably performances and he’s been around for a while, but he’s not a house hold name. Granted after the new Fantastic Four film, he will be. Chris Evans recently […]
