British rockers Wolf Alice upset odds to win Mercury Prize

Rockers Wolf Alice defied the odds to win Britain's prestigious Mercury Prize on Thursday for their second album "Visions of a Life", beating off competition from heavyweights Arctic Monkeys and Noel Gallagher. "This means so much," said visibly-stunned frontwoman Ellie Rowsell as she picked up the 25,000 ($33,000, 28,000 euros) prize, which is presented annually for the best album released by a British or Irish artist, according to a panel of judges. The 26-year-old later said she "now knows what overwhelmed feels like," having missed out after being nominated in 2015 for their debut album "My Love is Cool". It is the first time a rock band has won the award in si...Keep on reading: British rockers Wolf Alice upset odds to win Mercury Prize.....»»

Eminem claims UK album chart record in ‘Kamikaze’ strike

Eminem overtook ABBA and Led Zeppelin on Friday to claim the record for the most consecutive chart-topping albums in Britain, with the release of "Kamikaze". It is the U.S. rapper's ninth straight album release to hit number one, said the U.K. Official Charts Company. "Does this mean I get to call myself Sir Eminem?", asked the 45-year-old, real name Marshall Mathers III. Alas, the Detroit rapper would have to receive a knighthood --- and become one of Queen Elizabeth II's subjects --- to get the honorific sir prefix. He shared the previous U.K. record of eight straight number one albums with Swedish pop quartet ABBA and Led Zeppelin.

Lemon Twigs’ ambitions flourish on rock musical — a review

The Lemon Twigs' memorable first album, "Do Hollywood", was so self-assured it was hard to believe its multi-instrumentalist masterminds, Long Island brothers Brian and Michael D'Addario, were still in high school. Perhaps even more surprising was that the youngsters were so obviously enamored by the flamboyant pop of their parents' (or grandparents') generation. The record was a fun, florid '60s-and-'70s throwback brimming with melodies, hooks, harmonies and a hefty dose of psychedelic weirdness. The ambitious duo, now 21 and 19, have gone straight to the rock musical phase of their career. "Go to School" (4AD) is a sprawling concept record about the adolescent struggles of a chi...Keep on reading: Lemon Twigs’ ambitions flourish on rock musical — a review.....»»
