Televise is Calla's third album of strange, noise-infected indie pop. Static-filled drones hover and pulse and function in the way a rhythm section would in a traditional rock outfit. The band builds itself carefully around the electronics contributed by bassist/keyboardist Sean Donovan and drummer Wayne Magruder. Guitarist/vocalist Aurelio Valle's melodies don't stand out, particularly, except for their framing -- and that alone is enough to make them function differently from most of Calla's contemporaries. Even forays into more traditional songwriting, such as "As Quick as It Comes/Carrera," are successful, revealing a tender, Yo La Tengo-like sound from the group -- albeit equally informed by the ambient side, as demonstrated by the subtly stereo-panned drums on the same track. Televise is an impressive and adventurous -- if occasionally mopey -- collection of songs. ~ Jesse Jarnow

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.

Woodstock: 50 Years Later

Woodstock wasn’t the first gathering of its kind dedicated to music. At the time, Newport was already a regular meetup for fans of the new rock & folk music that had come crashing upon the youth (American and otherwise) like a tidal wave. Festivals such as Monterey (California) or the Isle of Wight (U.K) had been all the talk of the previous summers. But Woodstock was by far and large the most memorable of them all, due to its unbridled, spontaneous nature, as well as its long list of famous performers. Case in point: 50 years later, eyes still light up when it’s mentioned.
