February 6, 2017 24: Legacy and the dilemma of mediating a xenophobic aesthetic resurgence.
Adele - "Hello" (Singles Going Steady)
www.popmatters.com
October 29, 2015 Brice Ezell: Predictably, the Buzzfeed-saturated internet chose to focus on perceived oddities in the video for Adele's first new single since 2011's 21, “Hello”, rather than the actual music itself. But while commenters across multiple websites argued ...
Blood and Thunder: Power, Rage Unbound
www.popmatters.com
March 5, 2015 And while Scott Gorham's post-Thin Lizzy band Black Star Riders' did decently (#118, 2,800 sold), it was actually outshone—inexplicably—by Revolution Saints, the new “supergroup” helmed by Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich (#84, 3,800). (Thanks as always ...
Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters + The Last Internationale: The Cap 9
www.popmatters.com
September 26, 2014 And their lead vocalist, Robert Plant has put out many albums since that group split, with perhaps the most successful being the much-lauded Raising Sand, a collaboration of Americana and folk covers done with Alison Krauss. This year, Plant is back ...
Power Up: Janelle Monáe, Afrofuturism, and Plurality
www.popmatters.com
October 29, 2013 At the Grammys in 2011, Janelle Monáe rises from beneath the stage. Her back is to the audience and draped in a James Brown cape to match her pompadour. A quick camera shot captures a certain look on her face—jittery, determined, ...
Elvis Presley: Elvis at Stax
www.popmatters.com
August 16, 2013 My God, how do you begin to talk about Elvis? He's as familiar to us as Washington or Lincoln, perhaps more so in some circles. And still he remains impenetrable, no matter how much ink has been spilled over him. The more we talk about him, the more we ...
George Duke: Dreamweaver
www.popmatters.com
August 1, 2013 This is George Duke we're talking about here, not Brandi Glanville. With that said, it should be noted that I, indeed, fell for it. I had to read more about this “devastating pain” immediately. I delved in head first, voraciously absorbing the written ...
JJ Cale Made Beautiful Music with His Gadget-Filled $50 Harmony Guitar
www.popmatters.com
July 30, 2013 Rick Danko, Butterfield Blues Band and JJ Cale all shared common ground with Waylon Jennings, yet they were less-than-obvious choices to appear on the same bill as the country legend. For me, the concert was a must because I assumed it might be my ...
Rod Stewart: Time
www.popmatters.com
May 10, 2013 The big news here is that Time is not only Rod Stewart's return to recording rock music but also marks his first collection of self-penned songs in decades. Such an enterprise—at least on paper—stands to re-institute some long-lost rock credibility ...
The Lumineers: 2 February 2012 - New York
www.popmatters.com
February 11, 2013 Even with the Grammys coming up, there were probably few in the audience who were concerned whether or not the Lumineers would win Best New Artist (they didn't). It didn't matter as those in attendance felt lucky enough to attend one of the two sold ...
