Noel Gallagher Or The Art Of The Fake Insult

By Alyson Camus | November 7, 2015

Ellie Goulding is a ‘fucking dick’? Really Noel Gallagher? The problem is that Ellie just talked to the Sun and she told them that you were a fan:
‘Noel came up to me at the Brit Awards two years ago and said, ‘I love your music — but don’t fucking tell anyone’, she declared! Obviously telling everyone would ruin his joke and his game.

Listen To The New Coldplay ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’

By Alyson Camus | November 6, 2015

‘When we finished [the song], we were like, ‘Okay we are probably ready to come out again.’ This is one of those songs that brings everything else together on a project. I’m not really on it that much — I sing a bit and play a bit of piano — but it’s really the rest of the band on form. It makes me happy to listen to it.’

Coldplay At Global Citizen, Central Park, Saturday, September 26th, 2015, Reviewed

Always In My Head – Coldplay – When they write the book on great divorce albums, Coldplay won’t be in the top three, behind Dylan and Gaye, but that doesn’t make this understated song, a poorly articulated but haunting track, might get a footnote – B+

The Music Stars’ Dating Game

Taylor Swift was spotted in Los Angeles at a Haim concert at the Troubadour on Thursday….

But we already know it won’t last for very long.

UK Top 10 Albums 8-9-14

By Iman Lababedi | August 4, 2014

This is a real rarity, a better album than a single chart. From Coldplay to Clapton to Petty to,,, Guetta? The album is two years old!!! Still there isn’t one, well maybe “X” but no more than one, bad album in the lot, and Ed is more disappointing than lousy.

The upcoming Zach Braff’s movie, ‘Wish I Was Here’, keeps releasing new songs off its soundtrack, and after a very Shins (but kind of uninspired) song, a Bon Iver tune – that I didn’t even listen to, because I wasn’t ready for more Bon Iver in my life – NPR is now streaming a new and unexpected collaboration between Cat Power and Coldplay.

Chris Martin Is An Idiot Part 429: "I'll Only Eat Animals I Can Kill"

By Iman Lababedi | July 5, 2014

Here is Chris discussing with BBC Radio no longer a vegetarian: ” I’d only eat something that I think I could kill.” So I guess beef is out? Could he kill a cow? Maybe but a bull? NEVAAAAAH. Fish and chicken should be OK, the problem with chicken is probably less killing it and more catching it. I mean, those chicken can be fast on their feet.

UK Top 10 Albums – 7-5-14

By Iman Lababedi | June 30, 2014

No one shocked to see this list, though I wonder if Ed Sheeran can maintain. He is a huge star in the UK, and this is the best selling first week of the year so far, but there is only one “Thinking Out Loud Here”, and I wonder if it will be enough.

UK Top 10 Albums 6-29-14

By Iman Lababedi | June 23, 2014

I guess the return of Ed has a lot to do with the upcoming sophomore effort which just might do the difficult: be the same and different at the same time. Lana at # 1, though the real question is what will the US make of it? My gut is it will break pop but if West Coast couldn’t make it on the Singles chart what can here? Well, at least should insure a career touring if she has finally learnt how to play live.

US Top 10 Albums 6-27-14

By Iman Lababedi | June 19, 2014

As bad as Lazeretto is, the vinyl sounds awesome: it plays backwards and forwards, there is a holagram of an angel, alternative songs depending on where you put the needle down. The result? The vinyl alone sold an astonishing 40,000 copies and vinyl alone? White would have been at # 4 on the charts. Meanwhile, that country album? Painfully bad.
