Love machine on sympathy crutches: Beck embraces inner weirdo

As Beck has solidified his role as one of music's most influential figures, listeners have accepted a bargain -- on record, or live, they never know exactly what they're going to get. Playing Thursday night to thousands at Quebec City's summer festival on the sweeping Plains of Abraham battle site, Beck quickly made clear that his classic, wacky side was in the house. "Love machines on the sympathy crutches/Discount orgies on the dropout bases," Beck sang as he kicked off his set with "Devil's Haircut," which also opened his best-selling album, 1996's "Odelay". Backed by a seven-member band, Beck ripped into his catalog with crescendoing force, the powerful, quick-...Keep on reading: Love machine on sympathy crutches: Beck embraces inner weirdo.....»»

Why Workshy’s vintage act appeals to young fans

For the British band Workshy, which gained prominence in the late 1980s for its brand of breezy, soothing pop-jazz tunes, one of the biggest challenges about releasing an album these days is striking a right balance between staying faithful to its sound and keeping up with contemporary elements without sounding contrived. "We're always quite nostalgic---but without meaning to be vintage! But we do look back, gleaning the good things from the past, and putting them together with something that's more relevant today," Workshy lead vocalist Chrysta Jones told the Inquirer in a recent interview arranged by PolyEast Records. "It's keeping the flavor of the past and bringing in the f...Keep on reading: Why Workshy’s vintage act appeals to young fans.....»»

Exhibit features Ernie Barnes, football player turned artist

RALEIGH, North Carolina --- At heart, Ernie Barnes the professional football player was always Ernie Barnes the artist. His teammates on the San Diego Chargers nicknamed him "Big Rembrandt" because he was always scribbling on pieces of paper.

He's most famous for "Sugar Shack," which shows African-Americans dancing at the Durham Armory. Marvin Gaye used a version of it for an album cover, and a print of it appeared in the closing credits of the sitcom "Good Times."

Florence and the Machine looks back with regret, hope—review

Florence and The Machine, "High as Hope" (Republic Records) "High as Hope" could be seen as Florence Welch's quarter-life crisis album. The Florence + the Machine frontwoman has had some ups and downs in the decade since breaking out in 2009 with the debut album "Lungs." There have been three U.K. chart-topping albums and an acclaimed headlining set at Glastonbury, but also detours into drink and self-doubt. On "High as Hope," Welch picks over the traces of her sometimes misspent youth and looks ahead with tentative hope. Lyrically, it's a delight: reflective, wry and rueful. Musically, it retains the extravagance Welch's fans love: big hooks embedded in a wall of sound. ...Keep on reading: Florence and the Machine looks back with regret, hope—review.....»»

Drake emerges unfazed with new album ‘Scorpion’ a month after diss track

NEW YORK --- A month ago, Drake's world was crumbling. Now, he's untouchable. Pusha T's infamous diss track --- where he was in full investigative journalist mode, divulging new information about Drake while also shading his mother, father and bestie --- hit Drake hard. Drake's reply --- well, lack thereof, marked a low for the rapper-singer, who had surprised music fans when he won his rap beef with Meek Mill in 2015. But Drake, who has been criticized by some as too commercial and too soft, is back on top seemingly unfazed. And those fans who enjoyed the revelations in Pusha T's "The Story of Adidon" are likely listening to "Scorpion," the highly anticipated, 25-track album b...Keep on reading: Drake emerges unfazed with new album ‘Scorpion’ a month after diss track.....»»
