Gary Numan’s 21st studio album, Savage (Songs from a Broken World) is a concept album. Here, Numan presents a desert landscape resulting from global warming, and a blending of Western and Eastern cultures in a post-apocalyptic world. This is one of those albums where you wait to hear every bleep and steam-issuing slip. You may think you have tread this kind of sonicscape with the likes of Trent Reznor, but really Numan is the influence on guys of Reznor’s generation and his ilk (which Reznor fully acknowledges) and ...

The pulsing, free-flowing rhythms on “Kindness, Calmness” parallel the song’s buoyant vocals in mood if not in genre. In fact, the melding of electronic beats with lounge-y vocals leads to an overall effect that’s mildly jarring.

But lovely.

“Kindness, Calmness” is the second single from Novelty Daughter’s forthcoming LP Inertia (out November 3). There’s an almost strangeness to ...

The Academy Blues Project: Great Psychedelic Band in Need of a New Name

Source: New York Music Daily

Saturday night at Shrine, the Academy Blues Project put on a kaleidoscopically psychedelic, boisterously entertaining and sometimes LMFAO funny display of killer chops and deliciously unpredictable songwriting that spun through pretty much every good style of music from the 1970s, other than punk. The bandname is a misnomer: there’s absolutely nothing academic about them, nor are they particularly bluesy. If you’re into psychedelic rock and you’re in New York right now, they should be at the top of your bucket list along with Greek Judas.

Throughout two long sets, intros and outros constantly shifted away from whatever the song ...
