New Music Report: Dessa

March 3rd, 2010
Christian Hoard’s “Christian Rock” new music pick this week is a 28-year-old prose/poetry writer from Minneapolis with a philosophy degree called Dessa (real name: Margret Wander), who’s also a member of the rap collective Doomtree. Her debut A Badly Broken Code reminds Hoard of fellow Minnesota MC Slug. The beats are punchy and straight-forward, and so is Dessa. One of the best cuts is “The Bullpen,” where she rhymes about putting up with really annoying ...

James Murphy Opens Up About “Crazy” May LCD Soundsystem LP

March 3rd, 2010
Photo: Wargo/WireImageWhat’s the new LCD Soundsystem record like? “Boring!” raves James Murphy. Having just shipped off a last-minute addition for Shellac’s Bob Weston to master, Murphy is completely exhausted by the as-of-yet-untitled May album — which he also describes as “weird” and “crazy” — and he feels like he’s heard it one time too many. “You ever listen to a song 40 times?” he asks. “That’s why I don’t write the lyrics until as close to ...

Billy Corgan on Pumpkins’ Split, “Loving” Jessica Simpson: Preview the Story

March 3rd, 2010
Photo: Weiss/WireImageHere are the first two sentences of Rolling Stone’s first Billy Corgan feature in a decade: Unless you count what he’s done to his career, Billy Corgan has never attempted suicide. Until recently, there were plenty of mornings when he’d wake up to a stark choice: “Go eat breakfast, or go kill yourself.” When Rolling Stone’s Brian Hiatt met with Corgan in Los Angeles in early February, the Smashing Pumpkins founder had a lot to say ...

Breaking: Broken Bells

March 3rd, 2010
Who: The Shins’ singer-guitarist James Mercer and producer extraordinaire Danger Mouse (a.k.a. Brian Burton), who’ve taken time off from their usual gigs to team for a new self-titled disc of left-field psych-pop. (Read the RS review here.) Sounds Like: Spooky psychedelia with a British Invasion flavor. Burton outfits Mercer’s beautiful melodies and with analog-synth swooshes, slo-mo kick drums and horn breaks. The mellow punch of “Vaporize” features zippy organ and rolling snare, and Mercer goes for ...
