Michael Jackson's Xscape Origins: The First Review

Charles Thomson | Posted 03.18.2015 | Books
Charles Thomson

Hundreds of books have been written about Michael Jackson, but this is one of the very few must-reads to have been published since his death, forgetting his much-debated private life and shedding light on the one area most people appear least informed about; his work.

'Tell Me You're Proud of Me'

"The Chicago comedy scene is amazing. People move to this city just to do comedy. Not to get famous -- to do comedy. People rarely get famous while they're based out of Chicago."

CD Review: Good Boy by Nate Paladino

Christopher Zoukis | Posted 02.12.2015 | Arts
Christopher Zoukis

The EP is nostalgic, rife with powerful melodies, and provides the perfect vehicle for Paladino's sometimes snarky, sometimes growling voice. Listeners who long for the embryonic days of rock n' roll -- the 1950s and 1960s -- won't be disappointed.

CD Review: Involuntary Memories by Plastic Handgun

Christopher Zoukis | Posted 02.11.2015 | Arts
Christopher Zoukis

Fortunately, Plastic Handgun eschews musical absurdities and melodic paradoxes for experimental rock that is easy on the ears. The album is called Involuntary Memories and definitely merits the expenditure of any audiophile's limited supply of disposable time.

Christopher Zoukis

In March 2014, five musicians got together on Long Island, New York and decided to form a band. Christening the band "Sir Cadian Rhythm," a play on the circadian rhythms of the human body, the name presages the band's goal of instilling musical rhythm into the hearts and souls of their listeners.

CD Review: "I Am Love" by I Am Love

Christopher Zoukis | Posted 01.30.2015 | Arts
Christopher Zoukis

I Am Love just released a self-titled album which reflects their personal tastes in music: the psychedelic; the Vaudevillian; a little Seattle grunge; and what, for lack of a better term, is called theatrical rock.

CD Review: 'The Great Escape' by The Great Escape

Christopher Zoukis | Posted 02.03.2015 | Arts
Christopher Zoukis

The Great Escape, by design or by happenstance, is perfect for Top 40 radio. It's commercial and mainstream, while distinctive enough to avoid being classified as familiar or, worse, ordinary.

J.L. Sirisuk

During a time when so much of hip-hop is saturated with blatant sexual references, we have Joey whose album dropped on what is hard to believe is only his 20th birthday. The album permeates with an introspection and lyricism found in someone much older than Joey's 20 years.

It shouldn't come as a huge surprise that the inspired daughter of a profound poet likes to write. Any time, anyplace. Words, thoughts, phrases will get scribbled down on notepads, Post-its or, if it's during a night out on the town, even cocktail napkins.

There is a space where existential nuance and personal confession all exist in the rhythms of a dreamscape universe. This is the world of Pell, and with his recent album Floating While Dreaming, he transports us to a universe of varied influences manifested in ambient sounds and serious hip-hop grooves.

Somi: A New High Priestess of Soul

Craig Carpenter | Posted 10.01.2014 | Arts
Craig Carpenter

Cynical music fans like to talk about the things that aren't happening today; things that aren't happening in jazz, that aren't happening in R&B. A few months ago, I was invited to witness what was happening at New York's Joe's Pub, in the person of recording artist, Somi.
