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 […]

Interview: Twiztid

Peeping Juggalo fan favs Twiztid’s first independently released mixtape , “A New Nightmare” (I, still a horrorcore newbie) frightened, impressed and intrigued me. Putting the break with Psychopathic Records (Insane Clown Posse’s label) behind them, they ventured out on their own and had a very successful 2013, punctuated by their Abominationz Tour and headlining Rob […]

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 […]

Interview: Johnny Dilemma

In hip-hop, history’s proven countless times we, the audience, appreciate overcoming hardship, finding a renewed sense of purpose and using those dreams to partake in the rising rap grind. Inspired by a few artists over the past year I’ve met who have this story in common, doing big things up in the polar vortex (stay […]

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 […]

Interview: Charlie Mars

Since 1997 and six albums later, Mississippi born musician Charlie Mars’ captivated fans, fine-tuning his blend of acoustic folk-rock with a touch of downhome dirty. Touring with artists like REM, Tedeschi Trucks Band and most recently hitting Canada with the Dixie Chicks, his latest introspective and equal parts romance and regret-filled effort, “Blackberry Light” displays […]
