    The Charlie Brown Christmas Music Is Still Awesome

    When my kids were young, I didn't force them to play T-ball or try dance class or even go to school regularly.

    "Reflektor" Listening Party Cactus Music, September 9 According to early reports, Arcade Fire's first album in three years sounds more "contemparary" than the band's previous work, which can be a little on the furrowed-brow side.

    Is Funding Your Album on Kickstarter Insulting and Wrong?

    I do a monthly Kickstarter round-up on Art Attack because I really do think that crowdsourcing is a great way to get projects off of the ground that might otherwise never see the light of day.

    ​It's hard to describe how difficult it is to be a good jazz singer. Jazz is such a nuanced, sometimes overwhelming experience, that vocalizing it is, at times, akin to juggling bulldozers. And crap, man, bulldozers are heavy. Which is why when singer Tianna Hall's music got dropped in our l ... More >>
