Bjork At Governors Ball, Saturday, June 6th, 2015, Review

By Iman Lababedi | June 7, 2015

It is difficult to say anything about a show which ends with “Hyperballad” but a show that deconstructs “Army Of One” is easier and more, it is telling the best songs were Vulnicura songs, the two songs that opened the album opened the 7om 75 minute set and the were the most stunning of them all.

Watch Björk’s First 360° Interactive Music Video For ‘Stonemilker’

By Alyson Camus | June 6, 2015

‘It immediately rang true for me as that location has a beautiful 360 panoramic view which matches the cyclical fugue like movement in the song. If the song has a shape it is sort of like a circle that just goes on forever.’

Governors Ball, Saturday June 6th, 2015: Line Up With set Times

By Iman Lababedi | May 21, 2015

This is an odd day, Saturday starts off awesome, Kate Tempest, the English rapper, Clean Bandit, who I’ve been trying to see for a year now, J Roddy is always a blast, Marina, Sharon, Bjork and Conor at the same time (sorry Conor, I want more Bjork) and then… Ryan Adams headlining? Against Deadmau5? –fuck that shit, I’m going home.

Stephen Malinowski And His Amazing Music Animation Machine

By Alyson Camus | April 25, 2015

He started developing his idea in 1974 after taking LSD and listening to Bach, and he now has a version that can synchronize his animations with realtime performances. Of course, avant-garde artist Björk discovered him on Youtube and she used some of his animations for the apps in her Biophilia project.

The Music Stars’ Dating Game

By Alyson Camus | April 5, 2015

Taylor Swift was spotted in Los Angeles at a Haim concert at the Troubadour on Thursday…. And she was holding hands with Calvin Harris… the world’s highest paid DJ with the world’s highest paid pop star, what a power couple! And both highly overrated! But we already know it won’t last for very long.

That Was The Week That Was: March 23rd, 2015

By Iman Lababedi | March 30, 2015

On the eighth of a nine performance New York residency over the month of March, Bjork performed six songs from her new album of lost love and complicated feelings, took a break, and returned a brand new woman for the second set. It is called Catharsis… or art… or something.

Bjork At City Center, Saturday, March 28th, 2015, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | March 29, 2015

If you have heard and loved Vulnicura as much as I do (I consider it her best album since Post), you must see this performance. It completes the journey to a bright future. It is magic realism, where through art one is made whole. A masterpiece of a performance.

Bjork’s Video For “Lionsong” Is Here

By Iman Lababedi | March 13, 2015

It looked to me, her larynx, like a vagina, and I am guessing either I have a dirty mind, or it was intentional, or both. The song is a beauty but you know that, a before the fall love song: “maybe he will come out of this loving me, maybe he won’t…”

By Iman Lababedi | March 10, 2015

Come to Me – Bjork – The difference between Bjork 20 years ago and Bjork today is not sentiment, certainly not her singing, but the way she uses melody. In 2015, she does give us the luxury of melody and replaces it with texture. In 2003, she did both – A

Bjork At Carnegie Hall, Saturday March 7th, 2015 Setlist

By Iman Lababedi | March 9, 2015

Working her way through her ninth and one of her best albums, the recently released Vulnicara, what I know about the show is what I read in the tabs: the Post, NYT and USA Today all raved, though, reading between the lines a little, Bjork and her 15 member orchestra may have been a little snoozy at times.

No Björk Vulnicura On Spotify… Does It Even Matter?

By Alyson Camus | March 2, 2015

It’s funny how a veteran like her admits ‘to make it up as it goes’… doesn’t she have years of experience in the business? It’s true that the business has changed a lot and now artists get paid pennies for millions of streams, so I can understand the decisions of artists of her caliber.

Bjork (Not) On Spotify

By Iman Lababedi | February 27, 2015

What is truly disappointing, is Bjork of all people knows how to prove the limitations of streaming by using it, she could have if she wanted it, make the album itself secondary to the overall experience.

The Tumultuous Release Of Björk ‘s ‘Vulnicura’

By Alyson Camus | January 30, 2015

I really wanted to just get it out of the way, over and done with it. My gut reaction was immediately like that. It was an immediate album, and I did it so quickly, and it was like ‘Oh, it’s leaked, let’s just put it out.’

Bjork’s “Vulnicura” Streaming Way Before Release… And It Is Great… Listen Here

By Iman Lababedi | January 19, 2015

With synthesizers and strings, with sounds that are not like anything else and lyrics that touch the heart like Post happened yesterday, there is an clarity to her compassion, a stirring “in my heart is in my breast like love” goes one lyric and it is a gorgeous sentiment. “I did it all for love” Bjork claims

Not With The Band: Women In Music, Have We Really Made Any Progress?

By Alyson Camus | October 7, 2014

‘I’m tired of men who aren’t professional or even accomplished musicians continually offering to ‘help me out’ (without being asked), as if i did this by accident and i’m gonna flounder without them. or as if the fact that I’m a woman makes me incapable of using technology.”

Bjork Live On Film

By Iman Lababedi | September 13, 2014

There is an interconnection between everything that is going on stage and while it is only as good or bad as the music on stage, it is a mirror image of the songs concerns. If the music didn’t work, the conceits wouldn’t matter. But the music is wonderful and therefore everything work

Not With The Band: Why Are Pop Stars Afraid Of The Word Feminism?

By Alyson Camus | June 11, 2014

‘For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept. . . Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, god. I’m just not really that interested. I’m more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what’s going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities.’
