Lou Reed’s the Blue Mask is a great record, and its genius is at once so simple and unusual that the only appropriate reaction is wonder. Who expected anything like this from Reed at this late stage of the game? Even though the Velvet Underground, as critic Lester Bangs once remarked, “invented the Seventies,” Reed had as much trouble as anyone else in trying to navigate the decade’s actuality. By its end, he seemed to have just about removed himself from rock & roll for good. Street Hassle, brave and brilliant as it was, had the melancholy and deadly feel of a testament. Its sequel, The Bells, while musically challenging and emotionally acute, was nevertheless the first Lou Reed album that sounded more cerebral than autobiographical. The artist seemed content to become an old master, admirable without being vital. Then Reed entered into a marriage that, by all appearances, has been a source of profound and genuine bliss — which, in his case, seems … [Read more...] about The Blue Mask

In preparation for the 20th Annual Latin Grammys in November, the Latin Recording Academy released its list of nominees on Tuesday morning. Although Academy President/CEO Gabriel Abaroa Jr. boasted a “talented and diverse” representation of acts from across Latin America and the Iberian peninsula, the actual shortlist stated otherwise: the most nominated acts this year include two Spaniards — Alejandro Sanz and Rosalía — followed by a series of legacy acts, like Juanes, Rubén Blades and Juan Luis Guerra. Not a single urbano artist was nominated in major categories such as Record of the Year, Song of the Year, nor Album of the Year. According to a report on the Grammys’ official website, urbano dominated streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora in 2018. Yet the exclusion of extremely popular urban artists, such as J Balvin, Bad Bunny and Ozuna, reaffirms the institution’s longstanding bias against urban music. As Rolling … [Read more...] about J Balvin, Daddy Yankee Slam Latin Grammys Snubs; Academy Responds
Robbie Conal had hoped to retire by now. The 74-year-old illustrator and guerilla street artist had spent more than three decades satirizing conservative lawmakers when he moved from Los Angeles to Los Osos, an idyllic beach community on California’s Central Coast, in 2014. Feeling burnt out on his usual subjects, which for many years included President George W. Bush, he’d recently begun painting portraits of his cats. He dreamed of sketching the pelicans and otters on the bay near the home he shares with graphic designer Deborah Ross, his wife of 28 years. Conal would’ve been perfectly happy if he never drew another politician again. And then Donald Trump became president. “It has compelled me to do more work than I’ve ever done in my life, and it just pours out of me,” Conal tells Rolling Stone. “It’s cathartic in a way.” A self-portrait by Robbie Conal. Simultaneously revolted and reinvigorated by the Trump administration, Conal … [Read more...] about Legendary Street Artist Robbie Conal Takes on the Trump Administration in Latest Series
