Grammys hit a sour note with controversial choices

In terms of Things-Someone-Doesn’t-Want-to-Hear-After-They’ve-Given-an-Award- Away, “I can’t possibly accept this award,” is in the top three, after only “F*ck you, man,” and “I never actually applied, so…” Yet this is what Adele said in her acceptance speech after winning Album of the Year at the 2017 Grammy Award Show on Feb. 12.

Atlanta rapper, Father, brings an energy and flow all its own

Vulgarity delivered with nonchalance seems to be Father’s modus operandi. In the past, the Atlanta rapper (and founder of oddball hip-hop label Awful Records) has rapped about mass shootings, obscene erotic encounters, and even suicide—but always with such casualness that it can be difficult to even notice.

“Process” shows why Sampha is the artist everyone wants to work with

Sampha’s Process is a wonderful album. It’s a mix of intertwining sounds, thoughts and feelings — a kaleidoscopic record of slick R&B production, lachrymose piano melodies and heartbreaking loss, with the unifying falsetto of Sampha’s voice tying the whole project together. It’s of little wonder musical diversity is his greatest gift, as Sampha has marked his career as a beatmaker, ... Read More »

Cloud Nothings lose their bite on disappointingly dull fourth LP

Leading up to Cloud Nothings’ fifth album, primary songwriter Dylan Baldi struggled with writer’s block. Writer’s block at this point in a songwriter’s career is somewhat common. Almost everyone goes through it at some point and Baldi was no different. Much like countless musicians before, he just wasn’t satisfied with what the band was producing, and was unsure of how ...
