I WISH I HADN’T GONE
Feist has several shows at the Shrine
This avalanche of acts is almost overwhelming after a year of nothin
What Are The Chances That The Haim Sisters, Phoebe Bridgers And Finneas Knew Each Other As Teenagers?
It cannot be a coincidence
‘we’re thrilled to reunite and celebrate a collective return to discovery, serendipity, and together!’
The ceremony will also pay tribute to independent music venues
Fiona should have been nominated for Album of the Year
she had a punk phase in the ‘90s
approximately 1% have received 90 percent of listeners’ plays
I never thought much of Haim as the Bat Mitzvah blues band
several hip hop tracks from French Montana and YG, and a new song from HAIM
Isn’t it ridiculous when streaming has become the most used medium?
How many talented artists do I see in these small clubs every year?
Thom Yorke is at the Orpheum Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday
certainly represents what kids listen to these days
Echo Park Rising 2017 will take over my neighborhood
in over their heads
the only way to get in is to register through Facebook
I did see Melissa Etheridge in concert, I saw Sarah McLachlan in concert, I saw Paula Cole in concert and Sheryl Crow. All these amazing ladies had such an amazing outlet and place to play music, and it was really beautiful, and I feel like that’s not really available anymore and that outlet isn’t there.’
ere at Rock NYC we have covered the valley sisters since their humble beginning, I saw them at a tiny street fair (the Hudson Block Party) then at the Twilight Concert Series in Santa Monica in May and July 2012, Iman saw them opening for Mumford and Sons at Barclay Center early 2013, but I really heard about them for the first time early 2012, when Ryan Adams joined them on stage at the Echoplex… yes, the tiny Echoplex and now they are playing the Staples Center with Swift, just three years later
Is it me, or the tune even sounds la bit ike the Police at 0:58 and at 1:57? Because yes, it goes back into circles, a bit pop-dance, taking a full disco ball level, then these half-hushed Fleetwood-Mac-like multi voices and then open dance floor again….
I give you this, they are young girls and cute, and this is why we get this new vinyl of their track ‘My Song 5’, shaped like Alana Haim’s derriere, with her legs and arms sticking out of the vinyl’s edges. Why? Did fans need this? I am certain they will sell out very fast
still can’t make sense of the Haim sisters’ enormous success, I saw them a few years ago at a tiny street festival in LA and there were like 10 people, then saw them at the Santa Monica pier a year later and they had attracted a rather large crowd, but now they are literally headlining the FYF fest? They have a 9 pm spot just before the Strokes, which is big deal
I hardly get it but the girls are now all over the press, doing interviews with Marie Claire, embracing the fashion world, and declaring getting ‘squeamish’ when compared with the legendary Fleetwood Mac
Are Haim touring the UK? Interesting they’re back on the charts as are Arctic Monkeys for some reason best known to the rest of the world, I never forgave them after a terrible set at MSG.
Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires Of The City is overrated and I love the album. Katy Perry’s Prism is overrated and I don’t like the album but neither are quite as overrated as these three, VW is better, KP is worse, but these three most overrated albums of the year are off the charts…
Once upon a time at home
I sat beside the telephone
Waiting for someone to pull me through
When at last it didn’t ring I knew it wasn’t you
I am sure I am not only speaking for myself, but it seems to me that an awful number of bands we have covered in their early days, have now officially reached the success status
Yeah, I know early Miley is the pix, but she has topped both the UK singles and albums chart for the week, so what do you do? But Lucy Spraggan deserves it.
I am losing interest fast in Justin, not entirely, but really only one great song. Haim are a real bore and Alter Bridge (the guys who wrote the music for Creed – wow, that’s some kinda credentials) are hard pressed to be worse
Unvarnished – Joan Jett And The Blackhearts – You know what you hope it sounds like? That’s exactly what it sounds like; glam rock, power rock, street anthem, soccer game top of the terrace at the top of your lungs singalonga – B+
