It felt like the loudest, most rocking birthday party ever.

openculture.comHow Steely Dan Wrote “Deacon Blues,” the Song Audiophiles Use to Test High-End StereosDonald Fagen's complexly anachronistic lyrics (long scrutinized by the band's exegetes), jazz-and-rock-spanning compositional technique, ultra-discerning selection of session musicians, and immaculate studio craft which, by the standards of the 1970s, raised popular music's bar through the ceiling.
nme.comYeah Yeah Yeahs: their 10 best songsAs adept at razor-wire art-punk as they are montage-ready tearjerkers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ discography is an indie-rock masterclass. The New York trio – Karen O, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase – formed at the turn of the century, and quickly penned the blueprint for guitar music’s post-millennium future. Read more: ‘Fever To Tell’ at 15: A love letter to Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O With their no-holds-barred attitude to twisting indie-rock into warped new shapes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs canon can feel like an impenetrable fortress – just as you get your head around one side of their coin, another appears. Below, we’ve picked out ten of the best from across their four studio albums, as an introduction to one of post-punk’s most impressive forces. 10. Soft Shock A rich, soaring ode to the simplest acts of affection, ‘Soft Shock’ is the perfect example of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s emotional intimacy. Despite clocking in at a reasonably standard three-and-a-half minutes, it feels like it could go on for eternity, the steadily building, overwhelming use of electronics perfectly capturing that feeling of taking a deep dive into devotion. 9. Y Control Propelled by the crashing cymbal-work of drummer Brian Chase, ‘Y Control”s tale of a confused, mistreated lover is as catchy as it is bleak. The juxtaposition between the squealing, feedback-heavy guitars and the butter-wouldn’t-melt synths is quintessential Yeah Yeah Yeahs – there are few bands this good at fusing such audible opposites. 8. Under The Earth Doomy and experimental, ‘Under The Earth’ is Yeah Yeah Yeahs at their most wickedly weird. It’s as ominous as they come, the synths sounding like not unlike a funeral march on Mars, while the creepy percussion that backs Karen O’s snarled vocals sounds lifted straight from a Hammer horror movie. 7. Gold Lion Even for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the acoustic-led ‘Show Your Bones’ LP was an unexpected turn. ‘Gold Lion’, that curveball album’s opener, does a perfect job of wielding those new acoustic arrangements like an axe, hitting just as hard as any of the band’s more plugged-in numbers. 6. Mosquito The title track of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ most recent record finds Karen O taking on the role of that titular insect, screeching about how she wants to “suck your blood” with all the ear-splitting cadence of a mosquito’s whine. 5. Zero Boasting one of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ most anthemic choruses, ‘Zero’ is an alt-club banger of the highest order, Karen O’s vocals reaching for the stars, while the grimy, bassy electronics below her dig around in the dirt of their New York City home. 4. Rich A bratty-but-brilliant cut of stabbing post-punk mania, ‘Rich’ opened ‘Fever To Tell’, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ genre-defining debut album. That introductory guitar line instantly embedding itself in the memories of a generation of hyper-cool music obsessives, it remains to this day one of indie’s most powerful openers. 3. Date With The Night Karen O’s vocal delivery on ‘Date With The Night’ is so razor-sharp it should come with a …Continue reading »
theedadvocate.orgBlack Boys in Crisis: Avoiding the Entertainment Trap - The EdvocateSpread the loveIn this series, appropriately titled “Black Boys in Crisis,” I highlight the problems facing black boys in education today, as well as provide clear steps that will lead us out of the crisis. As they have in sports, African Americans have had an outsized impact on the American entertainment industry. Much of what we currently recognize as popular music stems directly from African-American roots: from blues, gospel, and jazz emerged rock ‘n’ roll, disco, and everything in between. In fact, many of the early popular music legends, including Elvis Presley and Led Zeppelin, were co-opting African-American musicians’ work. …1
music.avclub.comWearing and tearing: An hour of classic rockers grappling with punk and new waveThe various mass-extinction events in pop music history are greatly overstated. Hair metal wasn’t wiped from the face of the earth the moment “Smells Like Teen Spirit” roared to life; the pre-rock ’n’ roll crooners eked out a decent living in casinos and on TV after the teenyboppers turned their attentions to guitars. And though it briefly supplanted the AOR gods at pop’s bleeding edge, punk never truly killed its elders. The King-worshipping members of The Clash accurately surmised that the spirit of The Beatles and Elvis Presley was dead in 1977, but The Rolling Stones were still around—and the album they released on June 9, 1978, Some Girls, proved they could absorb and synthesize the aesthetic and attitudes of punk as adroitly as they had blues, psychedelia, and intravenous drugs.
