The War on Drugs storm the Palace with heroic guitar jams – City Pages

Posted: Thursday, October 19, 2017

These sorts of personal transformations require a considerable amount of patience, and so does listening to the War on Drugs. Their sound unfolds like a dusty, tattered map, but the destinations they eventually reveal are well worth the wait and effort. The Philadelphia sextet took the sold-out Palace Theatre on many riff-filled journeys throughout their two-hour and 15-minute set.

That said, I can now play Stand By Me on the Populele, a feat that was rendered possible by the melding of LEDs, Bluetooth, and a clever app. The Populele by Popuband is a $159…

An Appreciation of St. Vincent’s Guitar Skills – Vulture – Vulture

Posted: Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Photo: Michael Loccisano/Getty Images Classical mythology is malleable. Take the origin of Athena. Was it Prometheus, Ares, or Hephaestus who cleaved open Zeus’s head, thus allowing the patron goddess of Athens and future inventor of the flute to spring forth? As usual, it depends on who’s telling the tale. Annie Clark, best known as the rock musician St. Vincent, lacks all the fantastical origins of a Homeric goddess. But the…
