As a traveling music lady, multitasking road trips and long airplane rides (putting on headphones blocking out screaming babies and religious song singing flight attendants-yes, this happened) present themselves. Prepping for this flying and driving time to check out new albums, it was a must K.Flay’s ‘Life As A Dog’ landed in my mix. First hearing about this female indie pop/rock MC in various circles, I’ve always appreciated her real left-of-center style (not posing Minaj Anaconda style on covers), raw lyrics and relatability (like you’ve known her years and could chill on the regular).

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 47

posted September 10th, 2014 by CharlesMartel | Filed under: Music News, Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | 0

There are songs, and indeed whole albums which I used to like, but no longer do. If I had to say why I would say that I have grown out of them. The reasons for this are complex, and generally do not have anything to do with over-familiarity. A song I have grown out of is likely to be one which I used to think was clever (especially lyrically) or technically good, but as the years have passed I now regard as being either not as technically good or original as I thought they were or, in the case of lyrics, not that clever but smug, trite or even puerile. A classic example of this is “Mary Long” by Deep Purple. Occasionally, and this is very rare, I come across a song which I used to like because of the views it expressed, views which accorded with my opinions when I was younger, but no longer do. The Kinks’ “Get Back in Line” is one of the few examples I can think of.

Well into the top 100 now.

Among the onslaught of hip-hop albums dropped during these busy summer months, few received the constant rotation in my headphones more than Swollen Members’ ‘Brand New Day’. One of my favorite groups north of the border, this Juno Award-winning trio (with thriving solo careers as well) released their 11th album together. In an industry that’s seen many historic hip-hop groups fracture and drift apart, the brotherhood combo of contrasting MCs Madchild and Prevail with Rob The Viking guiding the production continues to work 15 years later.

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 46

posted September 3rd, 2014 by CharlesMartel | Filed under: Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | 0

If there are such things as guilty pleasures, are there guilty absences as well – songs which you should like, or even used to like, but which now bring up unpleasant memories that you no longer choose to listen to the song? I suppose there must be, though offhand I cannot identify any for my own part. I can only imagine a guilty absence to be a usually well-regarded song which I do not like, such as “A Day in the Life” or Pink Floyd’s “Money”. In the end it probably depends on the intensity of the negative association. Any songs or even albums that I think may fall into that category are more likely to be those which will be discussed in the next episode.

As we move into the top 100, I shall be posting ten entries at a time from now on, so more videos for your money.

posted September 2nd, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, Festivals, Interviews | 0

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As the summer draws to a close and we turn the page on another music-filled month, August ‘14 will stand out as a memorable one, punctuated by the much buzzed-about Afropunk Fest. Held on an opportune weekend, well before folks scattered to the winds to enjoy Labor Day lounging on the East Coast, several acts from all over the country descended on Commodore Barry Park in Fort Greene, Brooklyn to rage, riot, rock and rep, stomping all over your preconceived idea of punk- adding many shades, flavors and genders to the organized confusion.
