Write A Music Review: Rock/Britpop Review: Elbow-The Take Off and Landing of Everything

Music Reviews & News Release Date: March 11, 2014 Label: Concord Website Elbow is another case of a band that is extremely well known in the UK, but is relatively unknown in the US. The band has released six studio albums dating back to 2001, all of which have been in the top 15 on British album charts. In 2008 they won the Mercury Prize for The Se...

Sophie Ellis-Bextor Reviews The Singles
Sophie Ellis-Bextor
Which new track has the most (the)audience appeal?

Sophie Ellis-Bextor‚€™s¬†been through her share of stylistic changes across a career dating back to the late 1990s, when she first impressed on British charts as the striking vocal presence of Theaudience. Unlike a great many artists who used Britpop as a foundation for a pop-centric solo career, though, her releases haven‚€™t exhibited a trend for diminishing returns: album five, ‚€˜Wanderlust‚€™ (review), charted at four in January and was generally warmly received by critics.

Here, Sophie turns critic to pass judgement, of sorts, on this Monday‚€™s new (ish) single releases. Her own new single, ‚€˜Runaway Dreamer‚€™, is released today and its video can be seen below. Just down there.

Aloe Blacc¬†‚€“ ‚€˜The Man‚€™

‚€œYou can tell everybody that Aloe is the man who wears nice suits in the video. And a sharp trench coat. A collarless top sometimes, too. Yes, he is the man when it comes to that stuff.‚€

- - -

Javeon¬†‚€“ ‚€˜Intoxicated‚€™

‚€œAt the beginning of the video a lady spills some tea, and that upset me because I love tea. Javeon was probably too busy being intoxicated to care about the tea.‚€


- - -

Paolo Nutini ‚€“ ‚€˜Scream (Funk My Life Up)‚€™

‚€œPaolo sings about a woman who was ‚€˜just another woman with a shotgun in her hand ‚€“ funk my life up.‚€™ So that‚€™s nice that he found someone, even though I‚€™d worry about the shotgun. However, he also confesses, ‚€˜hell I don‚€™t even know her name,‚€™ so I‚€™m not sure the relationship is going to last, to be honest.‚€

Agnes Obel ‚€“ ‚€˜Aventine‚€™

¬†‚€œAgnes is from Denmark and I enjoy going there as I find the Danish sense of humour to be quite similar to the British. This pretty song is quite serious though, so you can‚€™t get a sense of that here.‚€

Philly 360√ā¬į Playlist: Khari Mateen Releases "Full Moon" Recorded Live At Chris' Jazz Cafe
21st June 2014

This week?s playlist comes from a familiar face in the Philly music scene?songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Khari Mateen. Most recently, Mateen released a live performance video of his song ?Full Moon,? recorded during a performance at popular Center City music spot†Chris? Jazz Cafť.

Not only is the track a great listen but catching one of Khari's one-man shows is definitely a sight to see. Khari not only sings and incorporates innovative electronics into his live set, the versatile performer even breaks into a cello solo mid-song.

The original ?Full Moon? track features Philly based emcee Sugar Tongue Slim?more simply known as STS. The smooth track easily gets your head nodding and STS? southern drawl and bounce is the perfect addition. It?s sultry without dragging and makes you want to listen back a couple times to hear all the nuances of the production and lyrics.

As a producer Mateen has worked alongside of popular Philly artists including†The Roots,†and has even collaborated with Jill Scott, Tye Tribbett, James Poyser and more. Getting an early start lending his talent to former group†Nouveau Riche†alongside Philly-based singer/songwriter†Nikki Jean and†The Roots' rap prodigy†Dice Raw,†Mateen now captivates audiences all on his own. He has performed his latest solo music on the road with acts like fellow Philly musician and producer, RJD2 and Cody Simpson.

Mateen epitomizes a generation that does it all?and does it well. From being a classically trained cellist to a mastermind producer and vocalists, Khari is well respected on the Philly music scene as an artists who approaches his crafts with precision and excellence. †

There is definitely something soulful and classic, yet still fresh, pop and new in each and every one of his tracks. Take a listen to ?Full Moon? below and make certain to check out his latest body of workQualia: Fall.

Damian Lazarus
16th May 2014
Monarch, 101 Sixth St., San Francisco
Since the moment he spun his first record, Damian Lazarus's mission has been a clear and urgent one: to blow away the mediocre, the overinflated, the obsolete; to seek out and celebrate the energetic, the important, the new. Always rebelling, always going places, "?and to have fun in the process. Playing around with different styles and ideas is what I do best," Lazarus explains. Driven by an almost childlike curiosity, a vivid imagination and wicked sense of humor, he's used his role as a DJ, label owner and now musician to nurture and share the most exciting and experimental music on the planet. Drawn to the darkness, but buoyed by the light, ever ready to embrace new ideas and different perspectives on music and the dancefloor, Lazarus is always ahead of the curve, with a wry smile on his face and a neat trick up his sleeve, How many DJs do you know who've played 'Reviewing The Situation (from the Oliver! soundtrack, no less) half-speed to a jubilant crowd at DC10 in Ibiza. How many DJs do you know who've received a sitting ovation on the dancefloor? Lazarus was born in London, where he lived until last year, when he relocated to Los Angeles. During childhood, Damian was naturally drawn to classic pop music, and inherited from his grandfather an affection for showtunes which continues to exert itself in the strangest of ways. He spent his teens immersing himself in the sounds of hip-hop, electro, soul and funk, before discovering house, hardcore and jungle at university - sparking a love of twisted, innovative dance music which endures to this day. After working as Music Editor then Assistant Editor at Dazed & Confused, Lazarus joined London Records and in 2001 became head A&R of the City Rockers label. Here he helped sign and release some of the biggest tunes of the era, including Felix Da Housecat's 'Silver Screen Shower Scene' and Tiga & Zyntherius's 'Sunglasses at Night'; his Futurism and Futurism 2 compilations remain the definitive documents of electroclash, not only providing a snapshot of the underground at that crucial moment in time, but mapping its future too. Damian received a major Djing break in 2002 when he was invited to spin at Barcelona's Sonar Festival and by 2003 he had residencies at some of the best club spaces in the world. His tenure at Circo Loco (DC10 Ibiza) has become the stuff of legend and found him consistently breaking boundaries of sound and stamina, freaking out the dancefloor and taking those on it to places they never knew existed, and may never get to again. "I thought a lot about these dj sets when pre-producing the album; especially the idea of placing off and strange melodies within a 4/4 dance music structure. It's amazing what you can achieve when you're into weird stuff", he says. Inspired by the new energy and possibilities in international club culture and music, Lazarus founded Crosstown Rebels in 2003, the label's records offering all kinds of unique and twisted angles on cutting edge electronic music. Recent releases on Rebels from Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler and Riz MC have found the label consistently breaking new ground and the new imprints CDR (a digital only label) and Parkside Rebels (a more leftfield pop label) are set to change the rules once again. A year ago, Damian began Lazpod (http://www.lazpod.com), a monthly excursion into weird and wonderful sound, a radio show that draws influences and inspirations from all corners of the musical spectrum and is delivered in a fun and laid back style. With many thousands of fans across the globe, Damian uses the show to let listeners in a little closer to his experimental and eclectic tastes. "Lazpod is a great entry point for new listeners to my music", he says, "and has been setting off warning signals of what might be coming on my album for some time". A number of popular and critically acclaimed mix CDs have appeared in the last five years, charting Damian's personal development as DJ, listener and supporter of new artists: Rebel Futurism (2004), Rebel Futurism (2005), Bugged out presents Suck My Deck (2005), Get Lost (with Matthew Styles, 2006), The Other Side (2006) and Sci:Fi:Lo:Fi 2: Night of The Dark Machines (2008). Damian's hotly anticipated debut artist album, Smoke The Monster Out, is another expectation-confounding gesture from this restless musical mind. Released via Get Physical, the album boldly steps outside the realm of what one might hear in a Lazarus DJ set. Featuring his own vocals and riding a vast plain of influences - Neil Diamond to Photek, Bjork to Jeff Buckley - Lazarus demonstrates his keen ear and meticulous attention to detail in a collection of heartfelt, grievously honed tracks delivered straight from the soul. It's a sensitive record, a bold record and above all a celebratory record - one which revels in the pure pleasure, healing quality and dream-potential of music. "It took me a while to start producing", he says "but once the juices started to flow I knew immediately that this was to be the best musical project I ever created". A groundbreaking live set to accompany the album has been built from scratch, enhancing different elements and including new club versions of the more introspective album material. Featuring decks, effects (no laptops) and a live visual show, this club tour will debut at the legendary SXSW festival in March 2009, continuing onto Miami WMC with a DJ session at his own Crosstown Rebels party at Electric Pickle, and culminating in a live set for Get Physical's event at the Winter Music Conference. A subsequent live tour featuring onstage collaborations with producers Luke Solomon, Arthur Jeffes and vocalists Taxi Taxi is being developed for later in the year. Damian Lazarus is a believer in giving people something exciting, unusual and idiosyncratic. He lives life to the limit, always rebelling, always moving forward: that's Damian Lazarus.


Mighty Real Presents "the Godfather - Part 1" a Tribute to Frankie Knuckles at Mighty, Sat, May 10 10:0
10th May 2014
Mighty, 119 Utah St., San Francisco
Saturday, May 10TH, 2014 Mighty Real Presents "The Godfather - Part 1" A tribute to Frankie Knuckles (Defmix) HECTOR Romero (Def Mix / NYC) w/ Mighty Real Resident David Harness (Harlum Muziq) As many of you probably know by now, Frankie Knuckles passed from us on Monday, March 31st, 2014. While he was booked on Saturday, May 10th to play Mighty Real, we have decided to pay homage to this musical giant by dedicating this night to his memory. We'll have special visuals, a shrine where people can write and dedicate their thoughts and prayers, and Hector Romero (Def Mix/NYC) with David Harness will be laying down the tunes "Knuckles style" all night long. A portion of the proceeds will be going to a diabetes charity TBD. The man many call the godfather of house, Frankie Knuckles began DJing in New York in the early '70s while still a teenager, years before the disco boom which proved to be the first flowering of modern dance music. Ten years later he was in Chicago, putting together megamixes of old disco hits with new drum-machine percussion for an appreciative audience at crucial clubs like the Music Box and the Warehouse. Another decade on from those first formative steps for house music, Knuckles was back in his New York home, working as a producer and remixer for the biggest pop stars in the business. His career spans more time than any dance producer and without him, the landscape would be immeasurably different.


Duke Dumont at Mezzanine, Thu, Apr 17 9:00p
Mezzanine, 444 Jessie St.,
with Sleazemore, Richie Panic, MPHD Before 2012 Duke Dumont was known as a ?producer?s producer?. He was the name on a 12? record the DJ knew to reach for when he wanted to please the crowd, without them knowing who had constructed the mesmerising sonic confection they were dancing too. In 2012, two EPs on Tiga?s Turbo Recordings (with whom Duke has had a long standing relationship) changed all that. ?For Club Play Vol. 1 & 2? offered up sweet ecstatic deep house & UK bass cuts that have united people across the spectrum of music, from early club adopters like Annie Mac, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Martyn and Jackmaster to Fearne Cotton on daytime Radio 1, Trevor Nelson on 1xtra and even podcasts by Tiesto and Avicci. On some nights in Duke?s beloved Fabric London, you would hear the anthemic ?The Giver? being played in all three rooms at the same time. Duke?s early career was mentored by Switch (last sighted producing for Beyoncť) and he made his name as the ?go-to? man to remake a pop song for the dance floor (Lily Allen and Bat For Lashes were notable clients). In 2011, he moved out of London to the countryside (Hertfordshire, where his studio overlooks a forest) to focus on his original material. Co-written by teenage wonder-kid MNEK (who recently sung on Rudimental?s ?Spoons? with Syron) the Duke released ?Need U (100%)? on his newly minted Blasť Boys Club label. ?Need U (100%)? features 17 year-old starlet AME on singing duties. With a chunky low-end, funky stabs and silky vocals this is like an early 90s house classic couched in 2013 techno techniques. In 1988 Inner City would have been jealous of this one.

The Bloody Beetroots
29th May 2014
The Regency Ballroom, 1300 Van Ness Ave.,
Imagine the love child of the Misfits and Daft Punk; the act of conception would be grisly, but what a mighty offspring their union would generate. A formidable figure a la Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, the polymath and producer behind the Bloody Beetroots. While Bloody Beetroots burst on to the scene in 2007, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo did not spring forth from the godhead fully formed. Born in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, in 1977, our hero started young, studying classical guitar and learning to sight read via the traditional solfge method (you know ‚?" like "Do Re Mi" in The Sound of Music). But his imagination was fired by other sources: The raw energy of punk and rockabilly music; the vibrant images and outrageous storylines of comics by Max Bunker, Benito Jacovitti, and especially Tanino Liberatore, creator of the cyberpunk RanXerox. "The secret is tying up thoughts and visions via the process called music," says Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo of his distinct aesthetic. "I'm a grown child who enjoys reading comic books of the 1970s, who never stops dreaming, and listening to punk and classical music. I'm disciplined and undisciplined at the same time." These contradictions allow him to change at a moment's notice, and eschew established patterns. "Unlike many of my colleagues, I hate to read biographies of those who did music and arts," he adds. "I prefer to watch, understand, and analyze the world by myself. My taste has to be influenced by something that is not art. I love to be struck by life." Nevertheless, as a youth Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo served his time in the culture trenches. After years of studying Chopin, Beethoven, and Debussy, he cast off the straightjacket of classical music-while still retaining its hard-earned lessons-and turned his attention to reconciling the new world of samplers and electronic music with his affinity for punk and '80s new wave. Pushing himself as a budding producer, performer and multi-instrumentalist, he embarked on a decade of variegated projects that Rifo now affectionately refers to as "exercises." Starting with his 1997 debut, a production for Northern Italian hip-hop stars Da Fam, he tore through genres like a child shredding gift wrap on Christmas morning: Film soundtracks, house, drum and bass, trip-hop, and more. As the climax of this dizzying string of well-received collaborations, he initiated his first genuine solo project, an electro-punk band with revolutionary visual style: Bob Rifo's Gang. At the instigation of his colleague Tommy Tea-his on-stage partner and longtime minister of propaganda- Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo then created Bloody Beetroots, an artistic alter-ego that would draw on all Rifo's experiences to date. Initially conceived as an all-inclusive way to package the live thrills of Bob Rifo's Gang with the excitement of dancing-till-dawn DJ after-party, the producer set to quickly establishing the Bloody Beetroots as a electronic musical entity in its own right. First up were "French Touch" icons Alex Gopher and Etienne de Crecy, who let Bloody Beetroots put their edgy, acid stamp on the respective tracks "The Game" and "Funk." With other French artists like Rin‚?ĘŇĹr‚?Ęse lining up for his services, within a single year Rifo cranked out 28 Bloody Beetroots remixes. But not to mark territory, so much as to respond to fellow artists from around the world, and poise Bloody Beetroots as a truly international sound. Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo is determined that this goal will remain central as the Bloody Beetroots star ascends, and their fame travels the globe. "I want to sit at the table with a Chinese person one day, and the next with an African, and the day after with a Vietnamese, and absorb their different cultures, to learn and to inspire myself and my music." In 2007, two pivotal releases pushed Bloody Beetroots to the next level. First, a vigorous overhaul of "Maniac," the percolating 1983 electro-pop smash from the soundtrack of Flashdance, an homage so inspired it won accolades from original composer Michael Sembello. Next up was "Discommunication," a futuristic disco redux of Timbaland's "Miscommunication." As original music and remixes by Bloody Beetroots began to bubble up in pop culture, via placement in episodes of CSI: Miami and prominent use in videogames, peers like Justice, Mstrkrft, Adam Freeland, and Martin Solveig were singing their praises in the press. Dim Mak founder Steve Aoki was an early, and passionate, convert: " The Bloody Beetroots is my favorite project right now. Bob?s remixes are some of my biggest bangers in my sets." He lost no time in snapping up Bloody Beetroots to release their Us debut, the Rombo Ep (with a full-length slated to follow soon). "The Ep summarizes much of my world," says Rifo. "You hear classical music, electronica, pop, fidget, punk. And the album will be even more comprehensive, because I want to incorporate new elements√? all my musical components. I need that." Like so many things in the universe of Bloody Beetroots, the creative impetus behind Rombo came from idiosyncratic sources. "My inspiration comes from events affecting my day-to-day life, and my creative process takes place outside the studio," emphasizes Rifo. "For example, when while I was creating Rombo, I was also studying the Italian Futurists." To translate the innovations of composer and theorist Luigi Russolo (author of the 1913 treatise The Art of Noises), one of the earliest pioneers of electronic music, into a 21st century context, he recruited an outside observer: Fool's Gold recording artist Congorock. "I chose him because he is synonymous with bass. And while he opened the oscillators, I closed my eyes and tried to find that special sound. Once I had it, I opened them and mixed madly. Rombo was ready in an hour. This is what happens-I follow the moment." History has shown that the most provocative moments in art-the 1913 premiere of Stravinsky's Le Sacre du primtemps, the notorious 1981 show by Public Image Ltd. at the Ritz in NYC-can provoke civil unrest. The Bloody Beetroots inspire that same brand of revolutionary fervor, yet with exuberance, not outrage. There's a riot goin' on, and you're all invited. By " Kurt B. Reighley " ~axs

You may have heard Penny‚€™s hit single, ‚€œLap It Up‚€ on JJJ way back in 1994. Penny was one-half of the songwriting core of Club Hoy and went on to forge a career of her own after Club Hoy‚€™s untimely demise. She toured extensively as a headliner and as a support to such luminaries as Margaret Urlich, Things of Stone and Wood, Kate Ceberano, Sophie B Hawkins and Wendy Matthews. In 1994, her debut single, ‚€œLap It Up‚€ made it into the JJJ Hottest 100 at a respectable no. 58. Most recently you may have seen her on stage with her sister, comedian Kitty Flanagan. But now after 10 years away from music proper, Penny has been easing back into live shows around the city.

Variously described as Garage Cabaret, Gypsy Punk, and Gangster Jazz, Waiting for Guinness has been playing the Sydney pub/club scene for years. They may be one of the best dressed too. The band features up to seven pieces including banjo, trumpet, saxophone, trombone, accordion, guitaron (Mexican bass), flute, guitars and drums.

In the tradition of artists such as Tom Waits, Calexico and The Pogues, Waiting for Guinness take their nourishment from ‚€˜old music‚€™ and hot-wire the styles of Berlin Cabaret, Mariachi, Vaudeville, Spaghetti Western and Swing-Jazz into their own surreal vision.

In concert, Waiting for Guinness‚€™ spontaneous and anarchic performances are truly engaging. The theatrical element is as strong as ever, harking back to their busking origins. A fan once said ‚€œWFG make old music sound new somehow,‚€ and they may have a point. The band are not traditionalists trying to re-create the past, but write contemporary and original music influenced by the styles they love.†

Warp records sensational band, DARKSTAR, make way to SF for a special live performance. Since their latest release, ?News From Nowhere,? they've been heralded as an instant classic across the board! "Every place warrants a story. No matter where it is, how quiet, remote or disconnected. There are moments in people?s everyday lives, no matter how subtle, that can be documented and talked about in great detail. The instances spiral and ascend and take on their own course, altering the perception of how even the slightest change in a day can be felt deeply." ? Darkstar Darkstar first coalesced in the underground, electronic thrum of London?s nascent grime and dubstep sphere in the middle 2000?s, growing from attending the now-fabled early FWD club nights to releasing a pair of game-changing 12? singles on Kode 9?s fledgling Hyperdub label. These were marked departures at the time, fusing unique sonic futurism with an avant-garde pop sensibility that immediately set the duo of Aiden Whalley and James Young apart from the glut of producers emerging at the time. What followed was a fitful and productive period culminating in a discarded album?s worth of tracks, the crucial introduction of vocalist James Buttery to the fold and, finally - the release of their debut full-length North, to wide acclaim.

So who are The Idea of North?

In short, they're a quartet of musicians, serious about their music without taking themselves too seriously.
Their instrumentation: voice (soprano), voice (alto), voice (tenor) and voice (bass), with a little bit of vocal percussion thrown in. They have a beautifully distinct sound and style, but they cross many musical genres: jazz, folk, gospel, pop, classical, comedy - exactly what you see and hear at a concert is difficult to describe.
With ten albums in the catalogue, a significant local and international fan base, and increasingly regular local and international work, it would seem that despite the difficulty, people are getting better at describing The Idea of North to their friends. You may have heard and enjoyed the CDs (some of them award-winning), but the best stuff actually happens live and can't be recorded onto plastic, no matter how shiny it is.
