Carlita’s Top Artists of 2013- Part 3

Ahh, Part 3. This is it. All good trilogies (Scope Part 1 and Part 2 in case you missed them) must come to an end. The last but not least of the blessed trinity groups of artists that stoked my curiosity and left me longing for more in ’14. Let’s finish strong: 17. Arctic Monkeys […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 14

I confess to being no respecter of reputations. Some albums, very highly rated, I simply do not have because, their status notwithstanding, I never liked them. Albums such as “Dark Side of the Moon” I have described in reviews in terms of “the reason most people have this album is because most people have this […]

ROCK Notes for January 20th, 2014

Musicians taking over this year’s Oscars It was a watershed moment in 2010 when Trent Reznor won the Academy Award for Best Original Score (for The Social Network), as the Nine Inch Nails frontman opened the door for other musicians who aren’t necessarily film composers. Arcade Fire’s William Butler and Toronto violinist Owen Pallett hope […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 13

You may have picked up my mention of a musical hiatus. That was the period, roughly corresponding to my first marriage, when my listening to music dropped off sharply. I perhaps bought no more than a dozen CD’s during that period from late 1989 to early 2002. Since then, I have gone back and filled […]

ROCK Notes for January 11th, 2014

Coachella dreamin’ on such a winter’s day I don’t know about you all, but I’ve had just about enough of frost quakes and polar vortexes. Nothing tends to warm me up faster than a major festival lineup announcement like Coachella’s. For the uninitiated, it takes place every April in the sweltering California desert, and acts […]

Carlita’s Top Artists of 2013- Part 2

Continuing the exploration of top artists of 2013, I will highlight a few more that were unforgettable and left their mark behind. Their work speaks for itself so here we go: 9. Mack Wilds The newcomer to the R&B/hip-hop scene but already an accomplished actor, Tristan “Mack” Wilds filled an important void (particularly in the […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 12

These days I probably listen to about 300 albums a year and buy about sixty. In my old age I have become a terrible music snob for, whereas I would once buy an album on a friend’s recommendation or on the reputation of the band, not now. I am much more choosy. I bought some […]

Checking the Playlists

Uncovering Covers MGMT There was a time when great cover versions were the norm in popular music. You could compare versions of “Easy To Love” or “You Make Me Feel So Young,” and decide and discuss which version is best. Granted, the deck is stacked in discourse when Frank Sinatra has a signature version. But it’s cool […]

Carlita’s Top Artists of 2013- Part 1

2014… Wait, didn’t 2013 just start? Well, now that 2013 is done, I can officially lay down my top 25 artists of the year. Why the wait? By November, others had their countdowns locked down but I held off because I suspected there might be some late entries to the party. Breaking up these artists […]
