Review: Kamasi Washington, Harmony of Difference

My first experience with counterpoint was being forced to learn Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Fugue No. 2 in C Minor, BMV 847”. And I hated it. Not the piece: I hated that my piano teacher made me learn each voice separately; as a hot-headed teen, I was more willing to learn a piece by (clumsily)... Continue reading

Review: Cut Copy, Haiku from Zero

Where In Ghost Colours (2008) was robust, Cut Copy’s new record Haiku From Zero feels ramshackle. If that reads as an insult, it is, their new record is bright and dancy on a first listen and mostly empty and crumbling by a fourth. As 80’s nostalgia continues to disappear in favor of whatever...
