Review: Alt-J, Relaxer

For the past 5 years, Alt-J (or ?, if you prefer) has functioned as a bridge of sorts, a pipeline between oddball musical ideas suited for indieheads and something more aspiring. To date, it has manifested as a sort of malfunctioning pop ambition, captured by their two largest singles... Continue reading

Amazing Songs: The War on Drugs, "Holding On"

Change communicates value in a way that isn’t always conducive to creativity. Guns N Roses didn’t need to change, and when they did it was awful. Critics told The Strokes to change then punished them when they did. God himself doesn’t even change — check out Malachi 3:6. Adam Granduciel has built a... Continue reading

Amazing Songs: Selena Gomez, "Bad Liar"

Nothing beats a nice build up. Rising action, tension, foreplay, all make the eventual goal taste that much sweeter when finally reached.

Review: Lil Yachty, Teenage Emotions

Had Lil Yachty risen in the 1980s, back when parents spent most of their time playing their kids’ records backwards, he might have caused moral pandemonium. The 19-year-old Atlanta MC calls himself “King of the Teens,” samples Rugrats and Super Mario in his work, explicitly orients his music... Continue reading

Review: The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Anniversary Edition

Critics of all stripes love analogies. We use them, too often and crutch-like, for rhetorical support. A waggish film critic once, in jest, took the practice to its logical extreme and called Citizen Kane, “the Citizen Kane of movies.” Well-deserved mockery aside, certain monuments tower high...
