Review: M O T H X R, Boston Music Room.

…r again – albeit in a live environment. Of course, Badgley is not the first actor to quietly embark upon a queer music career, with Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields garnering a not insubstantial amount of acclaim for their quirky works as Dead Man’s Bones. But live shows, in that particular instance, came at something of a premium and as becomes quite apparent quite instantly, tonight isn’t necessarily all about the music, man. This is thus less M O…So on & so forth…

Interview: They’re Talking About You Again, Erland & The Carnival.

…ounterpart’s Orcadian past, prior to teaming up with Erland, and delineates: “They don’t really have any kind of musical heritage, but more a literal, or poetic one.” More a source of inspiration lyrically, rather than musically therefore, he continues to cite the feel of “slightly magical, or ethereal worlds” they are then able to relay in song form. It was thus away from the Orkney Islands that he and Cooper first came into contact with one a…So on & so forth…

Review: Field Day 2014.

…m the instant standout from last year’s The Inheritors into an ineffably brilliant, mantric jam. Live electronic music at its very best, both exigent and indeed excellent as Moore before it, this – or so it would seem – is what The Acid are reaching for. Similarly insistent, if not incessant, is the Hi-NRG dabke of Syria’s Omar Souleyman. Having produced his most recent collection and Ribbon Music début, Wenu Wenu, Kieran Hebden dutifully watche…So on & so forth…

artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball. Lady Gaga, The O2.

…num, is somewhat mystifying. But ultimately, and above all bemusingly, there is a chasmic disconnect between the music she produces, and the verbal missives she so brazenly preaches. Tonight is, as she reckons, a “celebration of diversity”; from where I’m sat, it looks as though River Island were having a clear-out of their Spring/Summer ’08 stock earlier this evening on the Greenwich peninsula. “I fuckin’ love music!” she then caterwauls midway…So on & so forth…

Review: Wireless Festival 2014.

…stined never to outgrow the dross that’s now known as his stock-in-trade… “I definitely wanted to become a musician” said Italo disco godfather, Giorgio Moroder of Giorgio by Moroder. “Not only play music, but compose music” he continued, although this afternoon, not only does he solely perform the former, but he totally desecrates his own legacy in a little under an hour as well.

Interview: Out of the Dark, Klaxons.

…and strangest.” Yet Love Frequency, while considerably newer, harks back rather more to older times and lighter musical tropes. Prototypal house music, and to a lesser extent, Eurodance (songs like Corona’s début single, Rhythm of the Night for one) served as the blueprint for much of the album. As Reynolds then clarifies, “I think that, with all the albums, the songwriting is the same. But the production, and the performance, is different on al…So on & so forth…

Joining the Dots: “Beware the Jabberwock, my son!” Jabberwocky Fallout.

…point that, in spite of the ire (justifiably) thrown the way of ATP this past weekend, its employees are devout music fans and aficionados who work harder than many, for less than most, in order to host what have by and large been not only memorable, but frequently magical shows in their fifteen-year history. I can of course understand, and completely empathise with those who were left out of pocket when refunds were anything but forthcoming, an…So on & so forth…

Interview: Babblin, Celebration.

…OK.’ I wasn’t gonna turn down the opportunity to work with these guys, ’cause they’ve changed my opinion on the music business, and the people who do it, completely. They are just such genuine sweethearts, and music lovers, that I’m just happy to be friends with these people, y’know? It’s cool; it’s totally different.” Reverting to the record itself, rather than the label, Razor’s Edge – the first track, and indeed the most recently conceived –…So on & so forth…

Review: Caribou, Our Love.

He’s also – and this point is imperative within the context of this latest endeavour – released a record of that same name under the Daphni pseudonym, shuffling into a more dance-orientated realm in which scuffed beats, inspired world music samples and indelible, jittering melodies are all of comparably paramoun…So on & so forth…
