Comments Off on Did Lil Yachty just rap his greatest verse on an underground track?

Underground might be an overstatement for a track off Taylor Bennett’s latest release, but considering the relevant differences between “Neon Lights” and a song like, say, “iSpy” they’re pretty huge. Restoration, Bennett’s joint, is so far a SoundCloud exclusive. This is not one of Yachty’s usual, though still impressive,...

Comments Off on ‘The Outer Space’ takes the human search for bliss out of this world

Hating New York City is a favorite pastime of New Yorkers, and some are more serious about it than others. But most people know in their heart of hearts that leaving the city, or any place for that matter, isn’t an instant roadmap to happiness. But for those who have no desire to get out, as Ethan Lipton, writer, composer, and performer, describes in The Outer...

Comments Off on Saint Laurent F/W 17 brings back slouchy boots at Paris Fashion Week

Last night, Paris Fashion Week had it’s inaugural start by the fashion house that defines Paris creatives to this day: Saint Laurent. After a change of creative directors, the brand has noticeably shifted towards a sleeker, classic approach. The whopping 106 looks of the F/W 17 collection call back the shoulderpads of 80’s and YSL past. This marks...

Comments Off on Premiere: QNLZ makes it “All About Me” with slinky new single

There is something mysterious and swampy about QNLZ. Formerly known as Queen Liz, the Portland upstart suites up with a rather provocative and TLC-bent attitude. Her new single “All About Me,” which is as brash and forward-thinking as you can imagine, clutches to old-school R&B with vehement richness, also touching upon Lana Del Rey, Beyonce and...

Comments Off on How does Kimmel’s explanation of the Oscars debacle​ match up with reports?

Moonlight won Best Picture at the 89th Academy Awards after the presenters incorrectly announced the winner as La La Land, the cast came onto the stage, and the producers made speeches. Then confusion and a bit of panic and finally, La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz took control of the mic and announced that, no, Moonlight was the winner. Cue chaos. Cue Steve Harvey...

Comments Off on How did Moonlight pull off its Oscar upset?

While Sunday’s Oscar broadcast has already inscribed itself in history thanks to its comically absurd final moments, there is an important story that’s been lost in all the drama that’s followed; how exactly did Moonlight emerge victorious? Everybody, and I mean everybody, had expected La La Land to emerge victorious for the top prize. Both heralded...

Comments Off on Premiere: Rabid Young muster up strength with new track, “Bright Lights”

The strings that tie together a musician’s creativity, inner turmoil and resolve to break through the noise are tenuous, at best. Gunning to become much more than a high-profile local band can be crippling and dilute the core of their work. Eric Rickey, formely of Most Thieves who toured with such rock stalwarts as The Killers, was lost in what seemed like...

Comments Off on There was another big mistake at the Oscars but everyone missed it

And it’s a lot worse than the Best Picture debacle The 89th annual Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre, LA, on Sunday, and despite some of the wins breaking records and multiple award-winners using their time on stage to take a political stand, the Oscars 2017 has become associated with one thing: mistakes. Everyone has been talking about the Best Picture mix up, with La La Land mistakenly announced as the winner of the prestigious award, when it was actually Moonlight who had won the statue. It was only after the cast had...

Comments Off on ‘Moonlight’ nearly lost the spotlight, but why?

[Editor’s Note: the following opinions are entirely my own.] Last night, viewers watching the Oscars witnessed something unprecedented in the history of the awards: a misplaced cue card, and the relinquishing of an award. At this point, we’re all very familiar with the story: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway went onstage to announce Best Picture. The general...

Comments Off on How to prepare for the Oscars like a star

Tonight is possibly the biggest night in Hollywood. The actors, producers, directors and moving parts behind what the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences identified as the best pictures of 2016 will gather at the Dolby Theatre to see who wins big. Among the biggest contenders of the night are La La Land, with fourteen nominations, and Arrival and Moonlight, both...
