Interview: Butcher Babies’ Heidi Shepherd

Wading (or slashing) through a mountain of e-mails, while trying not to spontaneously combust in the Los Angeles heat recently, I stopped in my tracks once I saw the twisted cover of Butcher Babies’ upcoming EP. Bold and brash, I couldn’t take my eyes off it and ‘uncovered’ an amazing LA based metal band fronted […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 48

What makes me select the videos for inclusion in these blogs? Putting aside availability, the main criterion is a track which is unlikely to be familiar to most who will follow these blogs. After all, introducing new music to people is what it is all about. Occasionally I run across an excellent classical piece which, […]

Interview: Swollen Members’ Prevail

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 […]

A cut above the rest, and there are the rest of the tracks

It’s a different era for the album.

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 46

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 […]
