News

That feels good to me,” Crow says. “To not spend the time in the studio to make a fully realized conceptual album but just to put out...

See Lilly Hiatt, Margo Price Sing Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’
Country Music

Lilly Hiatt got a little assistance from friends Margo Price and Brandy Zdan on a fiery cover of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World,” captured by a fan at Hiatt’s Nashville show last Thursday. Appropriately, Hiatt’s own “Records” leads off the 10-minute performance at the Basement East. A searing rocker from her Trinity Lane album, the tune exalts her beloved LPs as being far more dependable than any boyfriend and even shouts out Neil Young in the bridge. As the...

Watch John Oliver Explain CRISPR: the ‘Microsoft Word of Gene Editing’
John Oliver

When it comes to gene editing, John Oliver predicts things could go in two very different directions: one where humans live free of disease and another gone horribly wrong and the world is filled with grotesque creatures he calls “pig-Hitlers.” On Last Week Tonight, Oliver focused the main segment on the implications of the gene editing technology called CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats). Scientists estimate tools such as CRISPR have the potential to cure 10,000 diseases – including...

Review: Let’s Eat Grandma’s ‘I’m All Ears’ Is Adventurous Bubblegum
Album Reviews

One of pop’s central problems is that it’s always trying to be so damn popular. Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth aren’t, at least not in the usual boilerplate ways. They’re teenaged BFFs from Northeast England with a surrealist sense of humor, as their band name suggests. For the second Let’s Eat Grandma LP, <em>I’m All Ears</em>, they depart the willfully weird fringe territory of their debut for someplace nearer the mainstream, and the music is stronger for it — a balancing...

Remembering the Beatles’ Greatest BBC Session
Music

There always comes a time when the learner tries to compete with, and become, the master. It happened with Van Gogh and Millet, Beethoven and Mozart, Kobe and MJ, Darth Vader and Obi-Wan. It happened with the Beatles on July 2nd, 1963, at London’s Maida Vale Studio, where the band were taping their fifth installment for the BBC of their Pop Goes the Beatles radio series. The Beatles were deep into their tenure as BBC regulars at this point. They would field requests mailed...

How Drake Made ‘Scorpion,’ the Most Ambitious Album of His Career
Music

Drake‘s ambition grows more grandiose every year. In 2017, he released the genre-hopping, 22-song More Life playlist, which sounded like an attempt to conquer every sector of popular music at once. He one-upped himself last Friday with Scorpion, a 25-track double album designed to shock, awe and discombobulate. Pulpy Nineties R&B samples collide with piercing drums; morose singing drones beneath emphatic raps, modern Memphis hip-hop rubs up against retro New York boom-bap, slow-rolling Houston rhythms battle nervy New Orleans bounce,...

Wild Feathers Revive Easy Country-Rock for New Album ‘Neon Frontier’
Country Music

For a band that exudes such a peaceful, easy feeling in their music, the Wild Feathers sure have a hard time coming to rest. The Americana group have spent the better part of their eight years together grinding out the miles on tour, but when they sat down to work on their third LP, Greetings From the Neon Frontier, they had to re-learn how to chill out. The recording of their second album, the more experimental Lonely Is a Lifetime, all...

See Morgan Evans, Kelsea Ballerini’s Wild Adventure in ‘Day Drunk’ Video
Country Music

If you have a lavish enough honeymoon, it may well follow that you’ll have to scrimp on your next music video. In Morgan Evans’ case, he pulled out a camera for his romantic new “Day Drunk” video more as a means to document a spectacular getaway with his new wife, “Legends” singer Kelsea Ballerini. Evans and Ballerini were married in Mexico in December, then went on their honeymoon together in Hawaii. The newlyweds came up with the clever idea of...

Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooter Has Conviction Overturned
Music

The man accused of firing multiple gunshots at Lil Wayne’s tour bus in April 2015 had his conviction overturned Friday, just three years into a 10-year prison sentence. After pleading guilty to the Atlanta highway drive-by shooting in November 2015, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey appealed his conviction in February, arguing that the judge overseeing his case coerced him into taking a previously rejected plea deal by threatening Winfrey – also known as Peewee Roscoe – with a harsher sentence if the charges went to...

Drake’s Favorite Collaborators are Ghosts
Drake

It’s unclear how, exactly, Drake pulled it off. On “Don’t Matter To Me,” a late song on the rapper’s latest album Scorpion, he recruits Michael Jackson for a duet. The late King of Pop is listed as a feature, and true to that billing, his voice handles chorus duties over a brooding beat that feels tailor-made for a Drake song called “Don’t Matter To Me.” Jackson’s estate declined to comment on how his vocals made it to Scorpion, but sampling...

Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda Perform ‘Hamilton’ Lullaby at Immigration Policy Protest
Alica Keys

Lin-Manuel Miranda performed a lullaby rendition of his Hamilton ballad “Dear Theodosia” Saturday at a Washington, D.C. protest against the Trump administration’s immigration policies. “We’re here because there’s parents right now who can’t sing lullabies to their kids,” Miranda said of children separated from their families at the border. “And, well, I’m just going to sing a lullaby that I wrote and this is for those parents. And we’re not going to stop until they can sing them...
