Best Concerts 2014

By Iman Lababedi | January 2, 2015

In retrospect, the Governors Ball was just tremendous. Three days, but home before 1am each night, of first grade, top of line modern popular music. From Skrillex to Outkasts, from the Strokes to Grimes, from Jenny Lewis to run The Jewels, this was the one.

Dance Trumps Rock And Other Lessons From Governors Ball 2014

By Iman Lababedi | June 10, 2014

Dance trumps rock, no two ways about it. Skrillex and two thirds of Swedish House Mafia siphoned off 75% of the audience, leaving 25% for Jack White and Vampire Weekend. The sheer numbers were incredible. Broken Bells was free and easy, you couldn’t move at Disclosures set which was occurring on a different stage at the same time.

Saturday was incredibly busy at Randall’s Island, a complete sell out from one end of the Island to the other with young kids, mostly college sophomores by the looks of it, planting themselves on every available inch of green. But the lineup wasn’t as good as Friday’s line up

10 Songs, Sunday, June 8th, 2014

By Iman Lababedi | June 8, 2014

Tightrope – Janelle Monae – Maybe the highlight of Friday’s entire day at Governor Ball on Friday, this is a pure rhythm dance track, ridiculously modern disco blaster. Big Boi’s rap only makes it that much better. Janelle was a star after this – Aroc

My Angle On Angles; A Strokes Rant

By admin | March 1, 2014

I didn’t understand Angles. Every song made me cringe. Though I will admit, “Under Cover of Darkness” did have that familiar Room On Fire melody, but it still felt a bit forced and cheap; the furthest away from musical catharsis. It didn’t trap me like Is This It did, that record raised me
