David Byrne Pairs Teenage Color Guard Teams With St. Vincent, Dev Hynes, & Others In New Project

My former roommate was a renaissance man of sorts, the kind of guy who blew through pastimes with maximum enthusiasm and minimal commitment — rock climbing, snowboarding, bicycling, weightlifting, and on and on.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Earlier today, I published my list of the 40 best music videos of 2014. It’s always a bit dangerous to publish a year-end list before the year is actually over, especially in this new surprise-release universe where we now live.

The 50 Best Albums Of 2014

Music is a messy thing. There’s too much of it, too many genres, too many ideas, for anyone to make sense out of all of it — or even to hear all of it. The idea of imposing a narrative on 365 days of music, of making sense of a whole year, is a fool’… More »

SNL’s Vanessa Bayer To St. Vincent: “Mostly You Live In Mars”

Thinking back on past episodes of Sound Advice, the online video series in which Saturday Night Live cast member Vanessa Bayer plays a media coach who advises musicians, I can’t think of too many actual pieces of advice that Bayer’s character has given.

It’s finally the time of year where there are more movies in theaters than I have time to see, especially in NYC with earlier premieres. That’s not a bad place to be, because a lot of them have been good and a lot of them have used music well. It was only once I’d finished… More »
