There's a joyfulness and simplicity to Mat Kearney's sixth studio album, 2021's January Flower. Some of this is due, at least in part, to the recording process which found him writing many of the songs while in isolation in Joshua Tree. He then returned to his home in Nashville where he finished the recording with longtime producer Robert Marvin, who also contributed to 2006's Nothing Left to Lose and 2011's Young Love. Consequently, the album has a generous, relaxed vibe that feels borne of the arid, sunny vistas and gnarled oak tree limbs of Joshua Tree. It's a rootsy quality that's matched by the production as Kearney frames his warm voice in sparkling acoustic guitars, woody percussion, and burnished synths. There's also a subtle '80s adult contemporary pop influence running through much of the album that he cleverly combines with more contemporary sounds. On "Pontiac," he sets a sepia-toned Bruce Hornsby-esque piano to a clipped hip-hop beat. Similarly, "They Don't Know" features a Mark Knopfler-style guitar line woven against a percolating analog drum machine. These are also incredibly hooky songs whose bright melodies Kearney smartly juxtaposes with introspective lyrics. In his early forties at the time of recording, Kearney seems to be looking back over his life and trying to find a balance in middle age. On "Pontiac," he ruminates on the less-complicated days of his youth, marking the passing of time with the poignantly ironic line, "My mama worried 'bout my marriage, but now I'm worried about my parents." And while there's an undercurrent of melancholic self-reflection underscoring much of January Flower, the overall tone is one of a buoyant, restorative pop bloom.

Alice Cooper Doesn’t Run from Danger

The Alice Cooper story is, first and foremost, an extraordinary tale of “split personality”. Like something straight out of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier surrendered to the domination of showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, the man who always speaks of “Alice” in the third person in interviews remains a simple, completely normal guy in private, far from the stage where he enacts his excesses and provocations. Throughout a career stretching over 50 years, there is an evident streak of schizophrenia in his many stylistic changes. While we credit him with the invention of shock rock, he has ventured into almost every genre with varying degrees of success, from pop to nascent hard rock, with forays into heavy metal, new wave and industrial…

The Talking Heads Revolution

Forty years after its release, David Byrne and his band’s album “Remain in Light” has held on to all of its mad and funky allure. The album’s merging of intellectual post-punk with cosmopolitan dance music influenced groups such as LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend and Arcade Fire. On this fourth album produced by Brian Eno, the Talking Heads revolutionized their sound, but also that of rock itself.
