Interview: Alien Ant Farm’s Dryden Mitchell

Remember when flipping through TV channels, you’d see a video that would stop you in your tracks and engage you so much in its cleverness? Enter Alien Ant Farm’s 2001 MJ cover “Smooth Criminal”. In a sea of SoCal altrock bands, they had the goods to stand out above the rest and copped two Grammy […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 45

We all have them, and frequently we do not admit to them. I am talking of songs which are guilty pleasures. Every fibre of your being tells you that should dislike that song, but you cannot help yourself. Don’t deny it. There is nothing wrong in it, for if, as I have suggested earlier, songs […]

Interview: Slaine

When a hip-hop head ponders the history of hip-hop in the NorthEast, you won’t have to look far before encountering Boston heavy hitter Slaine. Whether his group work with Special Teamz or La Coka Nostra (watch for a new album soon) or his solo work, he’s consistently towed the line of painful subjects and aggresive […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 44

Following on from last week, can bad songs come from great albums? This is a much trickier question to answer. On any album, good or bad, there will always be weaker songs and stronger songs. The weaker ones may not be “bad” per se, and may only be weaker in comparison with other songs on […]

Interview: Mark de Clive-Lowe

To any passionate fan, it’s obvious random “digging in the crates” online can yield unbelievable finds.

Drawn into his expansive discography via his dope ‘Renegades’ project and witness to his live show experiences which attract some […]

“Gettin’ Up Off That Thing” at Hollywood Bowl’s James Brown Celebration

As we head towards the end of summer days and folks savor each vacation moment possible, I was busy breaking into a “cold sweat” at last night’s James Brown Celebration at the Hollywood Bowl. Timed well with the recent release of the Godfather of Soul’s biopic in theatres last week, the diverse crowd settled in […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 43

Do great songs always come from great albums? Not always, would have to be my reply. Obviously great albums tend to have great songs, though some so called great albums would not get my vote as such. But there are number of tracks on this list which come from albums which I despise (though others […]

Interview: Cryptic Wisdom

Repping for a generation of music lovers, equally comfortable listening to Seether and Three Days Grace as they are Tech N9ne and Eminem, AZ artist Cryptic Wisdom returns this week with his latest album ‘X’s and O’z’. Melding hip-hop spitting with rock singing for years, he honestly reveals personal pain, struggles and consequences of previous […]

Best albums of the decade so far…

The teens keep rolling on, and the half way point is just about here. It’s been  a good decade for music, but all decades have high points. There are standout albums up to this point. The best of them are filled with strong cuts. Vampire Weekend-Contra (2010) Wild Flag-Wild Flag (2011) Frank Ocean-Channel Orange (2012) […]
