Weezer’s “Raditude” Joins Canon of Dictionary-Defying Album Titles

August 18th, 2009
Photo: Myung-Gu/WireImage Weezer have managed to stun the masses with word that their October 27th album will be titled Raditude. It’s like radical, with an attitude. Since 50 percent of their previous releases have been self-titled and color-coded, it’s a welcome change of pace — and as far as our dictionary tells us, a brand new word. As Kanye West once said, it’s awes-mazing, but Raditude is also awes-diculous, just like the words “bromance” and “staycation.” Still, ...

New Exhibit Explores New York’s ’70s Punk and New Wave Scenes

August 18th, 2009
Photograph by Stephanie Chernikowsk. Courtesy of the Museum of Modern Art, New York In 1975 New York was bankrupt. President Gerald Ford famously told the city to “drop dead” when asked for federal financial assistance. But as the rest of the country predicted the Big Apple’s demise, a fervent musical revolution was taking place in the city’s squalid downtown nightclubs, studios and galleries. Artists and musicians were producing raw work that exhibited their anger and frustration, ...

New Reviews: Brendan Benson, Jack Penate and Loudon Wainwright III

August 18th, 2009
Jack White already revealed the Dead Weather’s Horehound earlier this summer, so this week marks the perfect time for the other Raconteur, Brendan Benson, to showcase his newest album My Old, Familiar Friend, Benson’s fourth solo LP but first since linking up with White. Familiar Friend finds Benson embracing his AM-gold roots with power pop songs that echo Wings and ELO. Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield gave Familiar Friend three and a half stars, adding ...

Jackson Doctor Conrad Murray Breaks His Silence in New Video

While Murray doesn’t apologize or mention Jackson’s name in the video, he does say that he can’t return phone calls or e-mail “because of all that’s going on.” With reports that Murray faces the ...

“Gossip Girl” Star Taylor Momsen’s Pretty Reckless Post Two Demos

August 18th, 2009
Photo: Ward/WireImage We’ve already seen Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen and her band the Pretty Reckless onstage, and now we can hear what the band has been working on in the studio, thanks to a pair of demos posted on the group’s MySpace page. The not-fully-realized songs are called “He Loves You” and “Zombie” (not the Cranberries “Zombie,” though that’d be pretty cool). Both tracks were penned by Momsen and showcase the actress’ surprisingly affective singing ...

Fricke’s Picks: Lost and Found Ford

August 18th, 2009
Kentucky-born singer-songwriter Jim Ford (1941-2007) made famous friends easily with his natural blend of country comfort and deep soul. Bobby Womack had a 1972 hit with Ford’s stoner portrait “Harry Hippie”; Nick Lowe performed Ford’s songs with the bands Brinsley Schwarz and Rockpile. But Ford kept hitting brick walls with his own albums. After 1969’s Harlan County, he made two unreleased LPs finally resurrected as The Unissued Capitol Album and Big Mouth USA: The ...
