Music News

This country duo has quietly racked up hits like “How Not To” and “From the Ground Up” since 2014, and they’ve taken their fair share of shit along the way for daring to have a softer, less rowdy presentation than their peers.

Music News

This D.C. quartet’s terse debut grinds and giggles as it flips off the status quo, taking the old saw about dancing’s place in a revolution and repurposing it as a credo for a perpetual-motion, no-jerks-allowed mosh pit. Vocalist Adriana-Lucia Cotes has an urgent yelp that gives her bandmates’ spiky, nimble post-post-punk a giddy jolt, turning the beauty-myth broadside “Glamour” into a This article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: Review: Mock Identity’s ‘Paradise’ is Explosive...

It’s a Hard Knock Legacy: Appreciating the Lessons of Joe Jackson
Music News

Depending on the time of day and the angle from which one chooses to assess their gloried runs, or the spiritual damage, the Jackson family saga can seem like either the African-American Dream or the Blackest Greek tragedy ever. Only in Black America – where the nation’s worst intentions battle with the better angels of its nature over the same double-consciousness riddled bodies – could the This article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: It’s a Hard Knock Legacy: Appreciating the Lessons...
