Silhouettes of crowd at a rock concert(Photo: dwphotos / Getty Images/iStockphoto) Remember that Rolling Stones concert a while back? Mick Jagger screaming “Jumping Jack Flash” at you from those monster speakers? And Keith Richards’ guitar solos that seemed to pierce your brain?

Dodger Stadium was not even half full Monday, but you would never have suspected that with your eyes closed and your ears open. This was a concert, a festival, the joyous soundtrack of the World Baseball Classic.

“Lord Jesus, thank you for dying for me,” says a bearded man in cut-off shorts standing atop a floodlit stage as hundreds of youths look on. “Lord Jesus, you can have my life.” Teenagers in Avenged Sevenfold shirts with bandanas wrapped around their faces bow their heads and pray together.

Drake is making background music, and it’s burying us alive – Washington Post

Posted: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake, you sadistic little mesomorph. Are you trying to kill us, guy? Only an omnipresence this drunk on his own blood, sweat and tears could summon the hubris to stuff a pillowcase with 81 minutes of table scraps, smother our faces with it and call it “More Life.” The highest-selling pop star of 2016 is also calling his half-alive, entirely overlong new album a “playlist” — as…

Something is afoot at Her Records. Last year’s Her Records Volume 4 compilation felt like a defining moment in the label’s history, a crystallization of the varied rhythms and textures that have been steadily encroaching on the label’s hypermodern sound. Linkups with Salviatek’s Lechuga Zafiro, Swing Ting’s Florentino, and STAYCORE’s Dinamarca have further cemented Her’s place in the global club ecosystem, marking their productions with the Afro-Caribbean, Latin American, and…
