Comments Off on Keith Urban talks “Sun Don’t Let Me Down” from blockbuster ‘Ripcord’ album

Keith Urban‘s Ripcord is a landmark record for many reasons. Not only has it gone platinum (a rarity these days) and collected four chart-topping hit singles, the 13-track project pushed country music into uncharted territory. Mixing together electro-pop and disco with classic country storytelling, Urban demonstrated were the format could go in the future....

Comments Off on Breaking down the House of Cards Season 5 trailer

Netflix’s breakout original series, House of Cards, has always been strangely out-of-step with American politics. This lack of harmony, of course, depends somewhat on your political perspective. However, whether you’re a left-leaning Democrat (whose party is portrayed as hijacked by scheming political elites) or a loyal conservative (whose in-fiction...

Comments Off on Premiere: iDA HAWK’s soulful, big-band debut “Out of Focus”

Jessie Arlen, stage name iDA HAWK, spits thunder from her lips. She knows the exact weight of her high-flying range and how to use it to great effect, as she does so marvelously with her debut solo single “Out of Focus,” splashed with big-band horns and a classic ’60s groove. “I wrote the melody for [the song] on my daily walk at dusk in...

Comments Off on Mitksi baptizes Brooklyn Steel in emotional fire

Only seventeen years after the end of the first emo revival, a man in grey slacks and a VC jacket lunged vigorously, inside the empty space around him, to the prickly, panging and pure feeling of “Drunk Walk Home,” the seventh track from an album called Bury Me At Makeout Creek. This was in the back echelon of a former steel fabrication shop that had been...

Comments Off on ‘Bandstand’: Broadway’s tribute to the 1940s

Bandstand is an interesting animal. Watching this show, it’s impossible to overlook its obvious conventionalisms, and the fringing paraphernalia that signal the influence of a design committee. However, as much as this risks undermining the themes of the material, it somehow never does. While it flirts with cliche almost to the point of marriage, Bandstand manages...

Comments Off on Premiere: Matthew Ryan shares a tale of resilience with “Close Your Eyes”

A voice like Matthew Ryan‘s can twist you up inside. “Careful who’s driving. You don’t want to be a ghost,” the Pennsylvania native suggests on withered, vanishing love with his new track. “Close Your Eyes” scrapes the bottom of the heart, with the gravel of Ryan’s vocal sanding you down until you’re nothing...

Comments Off on Mysterious band Superorganism returns with weirdly fun “It’s All Good”

Superorganism came out of nowhere. It was February when “something for your M.I.N.D.” appeared on SoundCloud, caught the ears of anybody listening closely, and then disappeared without a trace. Half of the song remains hidden on YouTube by a quick-handed uploader. Then, last week, the group called Superorganism released their second song, “It’s...

Comments Off on ‘Old New Year’, Off-Broadway and off-kilter

In a converted, semi-dilapidated loft space nine actors dart about amongst movable scenery. They tell the stories of a disenfranchised generation struggling to find love and meaning in their lives. They are all connected in some way to the modern Russian Jewish experience, and they are all, in some way, lost. Throughout the play they are followed by a strange man...
