Emmy The Great – “Paper Forest (In the Afterglow of Rapture)”

We’ve seen Emmy backing her first album First Love and backing Fatboy Slim on the BPA Project, and now she’s back with this Lucy Needs-directed video for Emmy The Great’s end-of-a-relationship ode “Paper Forest (In the Afterglow of Rapture).” The video pairs the songwriter Emma-Lee Moss with a lively older woman coping with her ow… More »

End Of The Road Festival 2011 In Photos

Last week, the UK’s Larmer Tree Gardens hosted a hilariously deep bill for the End Of The Road Festival, a lineup that featured Joanna Newsom, Kurt Vile, Tinawiren, Lykke Li, Best Coast, the Walkmen and dozens of other notables.

Green Man Festival 2009 In Photos

The eco-friendly Green Man took over Brecon Beacons, Wales this past weekend with a heavy dose of Americana: from midwestern folkies (Bon Iver, Wilco, Andrew Bird) to wailing east coast electropoppers (Animal Collective, Gang Gang Dance) and reinvigorated psych legends (Roky Erikson, Rodriguez) the lineup wasn’t significantly different than, say, Lollapalooza. But Green Man stand… More »

New BPA (Feat. Emmy The Great) Video – “Seattle”

Norman Cook is usually Fatboy Slim (aka the 92nd Best DJ In The World) but right now he’s the Brighton Port Authority, and the BPA is all about collabs with talented people like David Byrne, Iggy Pop, Martha Wainwright, and here, CMJ charmer Emmy The Great.

New BPA (Feat. Emmy The Great) – “Seattle”

The BPA, aka Brighton Port Authority, aka Fatboy Slim, is a conceptual project involving a dozen or so people. We showed you the infectious “Toe Jam” with David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal. Now you can hear “Seattle” with Emmy The Great. There’s also “The Tapes Have Been Found,” a (very unfunny) faux-history of the “band.”… More »

CMJ ’08: It’s A Photo Wrap

The crapshoot buffet of 25 minute sets from overextended bands is now closed, thanks. When you’re out all day and all night, you encounter lots — some undercooked and unpalatable flller, some that’s ripe and right, lots never intended for consumption (CMJ set delays, so hott right now). We’ve posted some standouts already, but here… More »

SXSW: Wednesday In Photos

Welcome to our night one photo spread. Every year we forget that we can’t be in every place at once … until we wind up waiting in line for two hours. But at least for last night, the lines were so worth the wait. Our first proper showcase of this year’s fest came compliments of… More »
