The Week In Pop: The Grand Rehabilitation Of Lady Gaga

Less than a year ago I published a post with the headline Watch Lady Gaga Get Doused In Neon Vomit While Riding A Mechanical S&M Pig At SXSW, Brought To You By Doritos. The garish excess of Gaga's performance-art spectacle was typical of the obscene brand-mania that has infected SXSW to its core, but more… More »

The Week In Pop: Empire, Nashville, & TV’s Music Drama Craze

Rome wasn't built in a day, but Empire's empire might have been.

The stats have only gone up since, with Empire's next two episodes nabbing 10.3 million and 10.9 million, respectively. More »

TLC’s Kickstarter-Funded Final Album Gets A Boost From Katy Perry

But now, the R&B trio's two surviving members T-Boz and Chili have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund what they're claiming will be their "last and final… More »

Watch José González Cover TLC’s “Waterfalls” On A Swedish Game Show

Swedish singer-songwriter José González appeared on a game show in his native country recently and performed a stripped down and folky cover of TLC's classic track "Waterfalls," no doubt inspired by Bette Midler's rendition of it from a few months ago. He also performed a cover of John Lennon's "Woman." He was backed by fellow… More »

The Week In Pop: Kiesza’s The Full Package; Her Album, Not So Much

If the house-inflected Canadian pop singer Kiesza seems to have jumped on the post-Disclosure bandwagon a little late, consider that her "Hideaway" video -- in which Kiesza and her posse pull off an epic one-shot dance routine on the streets of Brooklyn -- premiered way back in February. So although "Hideaway" hasn't been simmering toward… More »

Watch Fred Armisen, Marnie Stern, Tim Harrington Et Al Cover TLC @ Bowery Ballroom

Last night, SNL/Portlandia's Fred Armisen played a solo show at Bowery Ballroom in NYC. He was joined by a grip of friends, including Marnie Stern, Les Savy Fav's Tim Harrington, and Leigh Nash, among others. Dressed in white jumpsuits, the crew did a cover of seminal TLC hit "Waterfalls." In theory, this is something that… More »

Beach House Play The Beach

A few days ago Jens Lekman played "Black Cab" in a black cab and now Beach House are playing on the beach. These are wild times. I look forward to Fuck Buttons continuing the trend. Anyhow, the Baltimore duo's sandy performance took place at "Glamourama Beach" in Sydney, Australia this past August, but it's just… More »
