alt-j At Madison Square Garden, Monday, March 30th, 2015, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | April 1, 2015

A lovely light show helped and so did the whistling, though it was through the beauty of their music, whether an a cappella opening or bass guitar electrifying, heartfelt soulful and very emotional-secret weaponish singing by guitarist Joe Newman, or distracted keyboard doodlings, the set seldom slackened too much.

Active Viewin’: rock nyc Concert Picks Week Of March 30th, 2015

By Iman Lababedi | March 29, 2015

The one time I saw alt j I thought the UK Radioheads brother in arms were the worst live band I’d ever seen BUT it was crowded, it was a festival, and their pretty good second album hadn’t seen the light of day yet. This is MSG and the new album, with great songs like “Every Other Freckle” waiting to be nailed on stage, well, maybe time for another look. PS: A Monday but at least it’s not T5.

Be Here Now: First Takes On New Album Releases 9-23-14

By Iman Lababedi | September 23, 2014

The sophomore album by the Radiohead via Coldplay Public School boys and is better than the first because it has a few more songs where they let go and a few more where their better living by science hits you deeper, show me an album with a song as great as “every Other Freckle” and I won’t sure you “Magic” – ALBUM OF THE WEEK -A-

After kicking it in the head a coupla weeks ago, Direct Current decided hey, maybe retirement isn’t all its cut out to be. It isn’t easy to walk away, it digs too deep.
