Concert review: Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra/Karabits at the … – The Times

Posted: Monday, October 16, 2017

★★☆☆☆On a nondescript, grey autumn evening, an orchestral concert with a promising programme seemed just the thing to lift the spirits. How about a quartet of early to late Romantic (and beyond) German composers — Weber, Schumann, Brahms and Hindemith? Lovely. I’m sad to report, however, that this lacklustre performance from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra didn’t altogether do the trick. The seasonal malaise seems to have set in for good….

Pixies Guitarist Joey Santiago Has a Slower Hand Than Eric Clapton – Westword

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

Since Pixies formed just over three decades ago, Santiago’s angular, minimalist approach to the guitar has been an integral part of the outfit’s idiosyncratic sonic palate. Rather than cramming notes into the songs, Santiago leaves space between the notes, letting his riffs ring and breathe. He says it’s about being patient and not being in such a rush. “That’s hard for me to do because I’m so manic,” Santiago says….
