Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

sj

A new album from the late Sharon Jones was recently announced, but I totally whiffed on it due to double ACLs.  Today I’m fixing that.  Below is the first single off of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ Soul Of A Woman, which is due out November 17.  It makes me miss her.  Enjoy.

Raised Eyebrows: Greatest Ladies II (Randy)

Raised Eyebrows F

Last month I talked about some legendary female artists, and it was so much fun that I’d like to continue on with the theme. So for October, I’ll be focusing on some important contemporary female artists. Each one of them represent uniqueness and impending importance. Courtney Barnett Barnett’s perspective is singular. Rock is safe in [...]

Movie Breakdown: Only The Brave

only-the-brave-01

Pre-Screening Stance: Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion) knows how to make a movie that looks great, but he’s yet to make one that actually is great.  Will Only The Brave get him over the hump?  Maybe. Post-Screening Ramble: Only The Brave is not what I expected it to be.  I just sort of assumed there [...]

Sleater-Kinney

sk

7-inches for Planned Parenthood, which is a curated series of 7-inch records that benefits Planned Parenthood, has set some release dates.  A digital version is coming on October 20, and a physical box set will be out on November 17.  That’s neat.  What I also really like about this news is that it came with [...]

Show Of The Week

ShowOTWF

There are so many good shows happening this week!  Normally, this makes things difficult for me when it comes to picking just one to feature, but it’s actually easy this time around because Protomartyr are playing Barracuda on Friday.  I’ve been downright obsessed with their new album, Relatives In Descent, and I just have to [...]

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

HMFT - Feature

The month of October typically leads me to drop a list of Halloween classics to scare your friends away from your booze during that swanky costume party, but I decided since I had done it so many times already I would instead opt for shameless self-promotion. If you never noticed before, I host a show [...]

The Go! Team

unnamed

Just the other week I spent some time listening to The Go! Team, and that left me wondering if they were done or whatnot.  Nope!  They’re still at it.  In fact, the act just announced a new album, Semicircle, and today I’m sharing its title track.  Naturally, it’s a joyous affair.  Here’s hoping they come [...]

Show Of The Week

ShowOTWF

You know who I’ve really been loving even more than usual in 2017?  Spoon.  Not only is their new album, Hot Thoughts, a real good one, but their live shows have been fantastic.  I’ve seen them four times so far this year, and in each set the band has been looser and more confident than [...]

Who Is She?

wis

My head is still a little fuzzy from weekend one of ACL, so I got up this morning in search of something simple and catchy.  This led me to Who Is She?, a supergroup that features Julia Shapiro (Chastity Belt, Childbirth), Robin Edwards (Lisa Prank) and Bree Mckenna (Tacocat, Childbirth). They’re jangly and I really [...]

The Breeders

tb 2

It would appear that The Breeders are legit back.  That’s neat.  I dig their new track, which is apparently a part of a 7″ series that will be rolling out this year.  Hopefully a new album is on the way as well.  Enjoy.

Show Of The Week

ShowOTWF

I’m excited about The Courtneys at the Mohawk tonight, Whitney at Antone’s tomorrow, and – of course – ACL this weekend, but the one show that’s really popping on the calendar for me this week is Chelsea Wolfe at the Paramount on Friday.  This, I imagine, is somewhat because I can’t go (dang it!), but [...]
