Rustie “Green Language” – Album Review

The most maximalistic DJ/producer to emerge from a burgeoning Scottish dance scene responsible for the likes of Calvin Harris, Hudson Mohawke and Jackmaster, Russell White (aka, Rustie) appears determined to hold onto his hyperactive crown, judging by second studio effort Green Language. Packed with 8-bit blips and bleeps, chunky arpeggiated synths and wonky beats, the follow-up to 2011’s Glass Swords is almost as dizzying, breathless and chaotic as its predecessor, […]

Rock Rewind: Bob Dylan “The Times They Are a-Changin’”

He’s in his 70′s now, and he can barely sing (not that he was ever known for his pristine vocal abilities), but the legendary Bob Dylan announced this week that starting in October he’ll be embarking on a fall tour that hits 41 cities. While Dylan’s initial claim to fame was as a folk singer in the 1960s, his lasting influence on rock music can’t be denied–especially the social consciousness […]

The New Pornographers “Brill Bruisers” –Album Review

Someone ought to look this up, but it seems to me that The New Pornographers might hold some sort of record for longest-lasting supergroup, or at least deserve to be on some list of that sort. All of the bandmates are in other functioning bands, four are solo artists…it’s amazing these folks have time to do anything together, let alone continue making music together for as long as they have.

Basement Jaxx “Junto” – Album Review

Named after the Spanish word for together, it’s little surprise to hear that Junto, the seventh album from Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe, aka Basement Jaxx, possesses the same sense of communal spirit that has defined their genre-straddling career. Their extra-curricular activities aside (the Attack The Block soundtrack, their collaboration with the Metropole Orchestra), it’s been five years since we heard from the enduring duo. And the follow-up to 2009’s […]

MTV VMA

Beyoncé, Pop Princesses Rule Video Music Awards

Well, it was definitely ladies’ night last night. The 2014 Video Music Awards was a tribute to all the female pop stars in the Hollywood-verse. From moon mans, to extravagant showmanship, to emotional breakdowns, to Beyoncé’s 15-minute set and Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award (presented by none other than hubby Jay Z) – the night played it safe, but was still one to remember. (Click here to watch all the […]

Harvest Records Pulls Morrissey’s Album

Someone close to Morrissey might want to have a conversation with him about burning bridges, biting the hand that feeds him, etc. Not that he would listen…. Or maybe someone should just close the fanzine. This seems to be a place of weakness. Let’s back up and unfold the drama so far, shall we? Earlier this month, Morrissey kicked off a beef with his label, Harvest Records, by using his […]

Introducing: Ben Khan

Arriving on the electro scene in the wake of Jungle, Banks and Jai Paul, Ben Khan might be the latest in a long line of enigmatic artists refusing to reveal little more than their name to the general public. But his eclectic incorporation of everything from the blues of BB King to the hip-hop of J Dilla to the artwork of Salvadore Dali into his early work suggests that he […]

Rock Rewind: Timbuk3 “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades”

In true one-hit-wonder fashion, married duo Pat and Barbara K. McDonald (aka new wave/post-punk act Timbuk3) arrived on the music scene in 1986, made an indelible mark on 80s pop culture with their single “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades”—then quickly faded into obscurity. The duo first attracted attention from I.R.S. Records after appearing on an edition of MTV’s The Cutting Edge in 1986. After signing with them, […]

T.I. Takes on Michael Brown, Guns, Police Brutality With “New National Anthem”

I always knew there was something of a revolutionary in the rapper T.I. Yes, he’ll always hand it in with commercial candy-coated hits, but somewhere deep in there is that Trouble Man – that same troubled spirit that led Marvin Gaye to ask, “What’s Going On?” As I predicted in my last article covering hip-hop’s reaction to the Michael Brown police shooting, more hip-hop celebs are coming forth. Following in […]

Surprise! Taylor Swift Is No Longer Country

In a highly hyped PR move that shocked the music world and left country fans crying their eyes out, one-time country sweetheart Taylor Swift dropped the bombshell this week that she is going pop. (In case you are the Sheldon Cooper type—that was sarcasm.) During her Monday evening Yahoo! Live Stream atop the Empire State Building, the songstress announced that her upcoming album 1989 would be her “first documented, official […]

Kimbra “The Golden Echo” – Album Review

New Zealand chanteuse Kimbra’s contribution to Gotye’s Grammy-winning global number one, “Somebody That I Used To Know,” may have only lasted one minute. But as proven by her second album, The Golden Echo, not only did it propel the virtual unknown into the public’s consciousness, it also appeared to have enamoured virtually everyone on the alternative scene. Featuring various members of The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Mars Volta, Queens Of […]

Hip-Hop Takes On Michael Brown, Ferguson With J.Cole’s “Be Free”

As angry protests rage on in Ferguson, Missouri, it seems like Trayvon Martin all over again. Another unarmed young black teenager, Michael Brown (18), has been shot and killed – this time by the police, and possibly in cold blood. Witnesses say his hands were up. He was shot at least six times – twice to the head, autopsy reports say. Protests with placards reading, “Hands up! Don’t Shoot!” have […]

REM Losing My Religion

Rock Rewind: R.E.M. “Losing My Religion”

Sometimes, the band is right and the label is wrong. When alternative rockers R.E.M. were preparing to release their seventh studio album Out of Time, their choice for a first single off the album was “Losing My Religion,” a wandering, rambling, minor-key song that basically emerged out of guitarist Peter Buck’s recorded attempts to learn to play the mandolin. Lacking anything that Warner Bros. Records could consider to be a […]

Drake Vs. Lil Wayne Tour Ramps Up

Going up against your boss is never a small feat, but Drake proves that he is more than ready to go toe-to-toe with his mentor and Young Money label head in the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour. Exciting lyrical battle? Check. Swag-dropping braggadocio? Check. One hell of a publicity stunt? Check. But has the student become the master now? The Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour began August 8 and is […]

Donald Glover To Play Miles Morales in Ultimate Spider-man Cartoon

In 2010, the Amazing Spider-man was rumbling to life.

Bond 24 In Need Of A New ‘Iconic’ Henchman

Bond 24 is inching towards production. They have a script, they have a director and an established cast. What they don’t have is a cool new henchman, apparently. A casting call just went out for a man who is above 6’2”, age 30 – 45, and has a ‘ very unusual look’. What that means is they’re looking for someone who is taller than Bond, and has the capability to […]

Parks and Rec Blooper Real

Parks and Rec is inching towards completion. And as such interesting odds and ends from is sixth season are ending up online. Check out this hilarious blooper reel from the season. Needless to say, Parks and Rec has one of the most comedically gifted casts currently on TV.

‘Young Ones’ Looks Absolutely Jaw Dropping

Young Ones is the second feature film from writer and director Jake Paltrow. It’s a futuristic western with an amazing cast that looks absolutely spectacular. The film appears to have gravitas and empathy in spades. Set in a futuristic dystopian world where drought has covered the United States, the film follows a family and their struggles to find equilibrium in this new unforgiving world. The cast includes Michael Shannon, Elle […]

The Emmys Don’t Matter

The Emmy’s have long been the strange, slightly gangly, socially awkward cousin in the award show family. They don’t really matter. They’re there. They’re at the table. They’re frequently seen around at family functions. But most people don’t like them. They’re certainly not the Oscars. The pride and joy of the family. The accomplished and good looking favorite child. They’re not even the Golden Globes, the stocky, slightly less accomplished […]

Men, Women, and Children

Jason Reitman is one of those directors that you always need to keep an eye on. He’s always in the background, doing interesting things. While other directors with his level of clout would be attempting to direct Transformers 16, he’s out making interesting, character based pictures. His latest effort is entitled Men, Women, and Children. What’s it about? The intersection of technology and the human condition. Too broad a synopsis? […]

Jackie Chan Needs To See A Script For Rush Hour 4

In the endless deluge of sequels, reboots, preboots, and remakes I can honestly say I’ve never heard anyone say ‘Man, I wish there was another Rush Hour movie’. Well, apparently there are plans slowly rumbling to life. Somewhere there’s a studio executive who is attempting to breathe new life into the franchise. While promoting the Chinese Zodiac, Jackie Chan sat down with Jonathan Ross and answered some questions. One of […]

Stallone Ramping Up Rambo V

The Rambo Franchise has been through numerous ups and downs. From the cartoon to the three sequels, with decades sometimes passing without a new entry, and then of course there’s the failed live action TV show. Well, not too long ago, Rambo V was announce. Some people rolled their eyes and said ‘sure, we’ll believe it when we see it’.   Well, apparently things are heating up. At wrap party […]

William H Macy’s ‘Rudderless’ Looks Heartwarming

William H Macy is one of the few ‘that guy’ actors who has transcended character acting and become a household name. In films like Fargo, Magnolia, The Cooler and Mystery Men Macy has showcased his skills and verisimilitude at every turn. The man is an amazing talent. Well, now it looks like Macy is turning his skills to another aspect of filmmaking. Namely, being behind the camera. The official blurb […]

The Revenge of the Green Dragons

Crime movies are released pretty regularly. They’re easy to make from a logistical point of view. They don’t require tons of special effects and high profile actors. But, let’s be honest, most of them aren’t earth shattering. They’re just not. Yeah, of course there are amazing crime films made. But let’s be real. They’re few and far between. Well, the godfather of crime films is executive producing a new one […]

Guillermo del Toro Might Use TV’s Constantine For His Justice League Dark Film

He’s slowly movie towards filming highly anticipated franchise installments Hellboy 3, Pacific Rim 2, and his Lovercraft love letter Mountains of Madness.

Kick-Ass 3? It’s A Possibility

Kick-Ass 2 has come and gone. It did ok. And the Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl comics are still being produced.

They had some positive things to say about the future of the franchise and some less positive things to say […]
