There’s a certain romance that surrounds the Mavericks. Maybe it’s their Latin-tinged party sound. Maybe it’s Raul Malo’s enveloping tenor. Or maybe it’s just because somewhere right now, babies are no doubt being made to their music. Whatever the reason, the Miami-born, Nashville-based group is arguably the Last Great Romantic Band. “Yes!” shouts guitarist Eddie Perez when that moniker is floated. He mimes a mariachi guitar strum. “Resistance is futile! You too will fall,” says Malo, breaking into a warm laugh. With chilled Patrón poured in plastic cups, the mood at the Mavericks’ “clubhouse,” an inviting space in a Nashville warehouse out of which Malo’s wife Betty operates her jewelry business, is decidedly light. The guys — Malo, Perez and drummer Paul Deakin and keys man Jerry Dale McFadden — sip their tequila, crack jokes and quote lines from the Jack Black Mexican wrestling parody … [Read more...] about The Mavericks Dance the Pain Away on New Album ‘Mono’
New radicals you get what you give lyrics
Storied singer Martha Wash recently unveiled a delightfully seething screed against greed, “Never Enough Money,” set to appear on her upcoming album, Love and Conflict, out January 6th. The recently released “Never Enough Money” is a stomping, rough-around-the-edges blues rocker anchored by a righteous vocal performance from Wash, who skewers reckless and unchecked thirst for wealth and attention. “You think you’re trending now,” she sings, “And everybody’s going ‘Wow!’/ If all you want is more/ Then I’ll show you the door/ You tweet and troll us all — can’t you be sweet/ There’s never enough money in the world for you.” Love and Conflict marks Wash’s first solo album since 2013’s Something Good, which in turn was her first solo record since her self-titled 1993 effort. For Love and Conflict, Wash teamed with producer Sami Basbous, saying, “My producers took me out of my … [Read more...] about 1990s Dance Music Diva Martha Wash Previews New Album With ‘Never Enough Money’
The fight over fried chicken has moved over to the music world. In response to the now-viral debate over who makes the best fried chicken in America, Post Malone and Migos have entered the fray, thanks to some clever — and competitive — campaigns from Postmates and Uber Eats. Shots were first fired by Migos, who teamed up with Uber Eats and Popeyes last week on a special “Migos Menu,” inspired by the group’s well-documented love for the fried chicken chain. The trio referenced the Louisiana Kitchen in their song, “Stir Fry” (sample lyric: “Trap n—a with the chickens like Popeye’s”) and reportedly have the chain’s chicken tenders and biscuits listed on their tour rider. When the Popeyes fried chicken sandwich sold out across the country over the summer, Quavo posted on Instagram about selling one for $1,000 (sample response: “I’ll give you a stack for one sandwich if you deliver it”).

When Laura Jane Grace realized that her next musical project was going to involve a new band, she had a revelation. “It felt really relieving to be like, ‘OK, this isn’t an Against Me! record, so I can say whatever the fuck I want!’” says Grace, whose upcoming album — Bought to Rot, her first LP with new outfit the Devouring Mothers — comes out November 9th. The record marks the debut of Grace’s new trio, which includes Against Me! drummer Atom Willard and engineer/mixer Marc Jacob Hudson. With an album under her own name, “there is no precedent set,” says the singer-guitarist. “It doesn’t have to be anything. No one can comparatively be disappointed because it’s not like the last record or the record before that, or the record before that. Having that blank slate was really liberating.” Recorded at Hudson’s studio in rural Michigan, Bought to Rot contains a range of songs, from the … [Read more...] about Laura Jane Grace on New Band Devouring Mothers and the Future of Against Me!
