ARTIST TALK: HENRY ROLLINS x PHARRELL WILLIAMS

April 3, 2013  |  Culture  |  Comments Off

Needless to say, young Pharrell is more than a little outgunned in this artist discussion with legendary Black Flag frontman and punk icon Henry Rollins, but it's fun to watch the two dig in. Luckily, the topic of conversation never turns to wanton hedonism, conspicuous consumption, or overt consumerism, but hey, why would it?...

TUAREG GUITARIST BOMBINO’S AMAZING NEW RECORD WITH THE BLACK KEYS’ DAN AUERBACH

April 2, 2013  |  Music  |  Comments Off

Screen Shot 2013-04-03 at 12.08.23 AM

The name Bombino is likely news to the majority of Westerners, but now that The Black Keys' frontman Dan Auerbach has taken up his cause, we can only hope that his cryptic moniker will soon become a household name among discerning rock fans. Hailing from the Tuareg region of Saharan Africa, the nomadic guitar virtuoso was discovered by the Ohio guitar player turned mega rock star via a short online clip of his music. What Auerbach saw immediately compelled him to invite the musician to a session at his Nashville studio where the Key's leader produced Bombino's breakthrough recording, "Nomad," (adding subtle Nashville touches like pedal steel guitar to Bombino's shredding African riffs) released this week internationally.

MUST-SEE: “DAVID BOWIE IS…” AT THE VICTORIA & ALBERT MUSEUM, LONDON

April 1, 2013  |  art, Culture, Music, News  |  Comments Off

Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 10.01.46 PM

Easily the most influential chameleon in rock history, David Bowie's storied career has seen him inhabit more personas than an accomplished schizophrenic, and at age 66, release a new album last month that debuted at #1 on iTunes and on UK record charts. The foremost arbiter of rock style and fashion at every generational and cultural pivot point, Bowie's avant-garde futurism and absolute abhorrence of stasis has seen him generate a massive archive of personal artifacts, that, despite years of massive chemical intake and general debauchery, he had the presence of mind to preserve in an institutional grade archive (complete with its own full-time dedicated archivist) for posterity. It is from this incredible collection that London's Victoria & Albert Museum assembled its current blockbuster visual retrospective of Bowie's life & times, titled, appropriately enough, "David Bowie Is..."
