The Olivia Tremor Control played a delightful show at Le Poisson Rouge and released their first single since the Nineties. Elephant Six lives! Earlier: August 2005.
Short takes on recent singles from Jay-Z and Kanye West, Girls, Das Racist, Florence + the Machine and Childish Gambino.
I reviewed Katy B’s killer debut LP.
Sarah and I spent Labor Day weekend rocking out at East Troy, Wisconsin’s Alpine Valley Music Theatre for Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary festival. I also spoke with Jeff Ament and Cameron Crowe about PJ’s big year and wrote a print piece about it all.
