Song To Song Trailer


The music scene of Austin, Texas becomes tainted by lust and illict desires as two aspiring songwriters named Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling) become entwined in two overlapping love triangles with a major player in the music business named Cook (Michael Fassbender) - who encourages them to take their music careers further - and a charming waitress (Natalie Portman). As much as their lives are about making it in the industry and becoming world renowned successes, their lives get more complicated by disloyalty, temptation and infatuation with each other, pushing all of them ultimately further away. Can love last when betrayal lies at every corner?

Ben Walton's Top Ten Albums Of 2016


Weezer Biffy Clyro Crocodiles Against Me! The Posies Iggy Pop

Some great bands made awful albums and other surprising bands put out great work.

Putting this list together was pretty hard work and near misses on the top ten go to CRX, Banks and Steelz, Suede and We Cut Corners who all produced decent records. Next year is already shaping up to be a cracking year with releases planned for Queens of the Stone Age, Soundgarden, Beck and Father John Misty, but for now, here are my top records of 2016:

Brian Fallon, Asylums, Biffy Clyro

Iris North's Top Rock Albums Of 2016


David Bowie Iggy Pop The Kills Dandy Warhols

Rock royalty deaths easily earned the "least favorite musical moments of 2016" award. Despite the loss of talented artists, the music that came into being in 2016 had quite a few highlights. Here are ten enjoyable, rock-oriented albums, arranged chronologically, ranging from contemporary radio pop to underground hardcore thrash.

David Bowie - Blackstar

Jan. 8, 2016: The year's first entry is David Bowie's immaculate and stunning finale, "Blackstar". An eclectic mix of art rock, modern jazz, and honest pop, the seven songs (five new, two re-recorded) provide a solemn glimpse into the perspective of someone facing their final days on Earth. "Blackstar" may have been Bowie's final recording before his death, but his estate has fortunately planned that it will not be the last for this immortal, genre defining artist.

Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall Review

Extraordinary

"Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall" is a DVD which shows the world what audiences who attended the springtime "Post Pop Depression" concerts knew intimately. Iggy Pop, a dynamic frontman, rightfully called an icon by the Grammy awards-granting body, is backed by talented sidemen who work through material from two eras of rock and roll.

Winner of Best Live Music Coverage by the UK Music Video Awards, "Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall"'s full-scale production runs through 22 songs. Splinter Films captures and celebrates a spectacle, a snapshot in time. With no excess fanfare or lavish post-production, it attempts to simply illustrate music in the making. Fans who witnessed this show in-person have almost unanimously agreed that it was one of their favorites, and this DVD attempts to show the rest of the world 'why'.

The concert runs a sliver shy of two hours, and the camerawork shows the toil the musicians sweat through under diffuse, hot stage lights.

Gimme Danger Trailer


As the trailer begins, you hear Jim Jarmusch announce that he's "in an undisclosed location interrogating Jim Osterberg (Iggy Pop) about The Stooges, the greatest rock 'n' roll band ever. 'Interrogating' is the perfect choice of words for Jarmusch to choose as nothing less would do justice to the severe impact The Stooges had on the rock scene. 

Raucous, loud, dangerous and unafraid to cross the boundaries, not only did Iggy Pop and the rest of the band embody rock, they also embraced an entirely new ethos that was being formed - in part by them - called punk.

Iggy Pop originally formed The Stooges as a blues band, but didn't want to stick to the traditional confines of the genre, he wanted to take the style in a whole new direction, so he and three of his friends began writing songs together. The eight tracks they'd originally compile included I Wanna Be Your Dog and the ten minute+ track We Will Fall. The record would be produced by the Velvet Underground's John Cale and go on to make The Stooges a name that's still recognised as one of the most important bands to come out of those early years of rock 'n' roll.

Blood Orange Trailer


Bill's life as a rock n' roll star seems like a distant memory, he's no longer the talk of the town and now leads a more sedentary life in Spain with his significantly younger partner, Isabella. Living remotely, the couple live a life that more suits Bill rather than Isabella and her promiscuous ways. 

When one of Isabella's ex-lovers tracks her down and pays her a visit, he requests that Isabella repays money that he believes is rightfully his. Isabella is reluctant to give in to his demands and soon the three are caught in a complicated tryst which no one looks like they'll come out from unscathed. 

Blood Orange is a psychological thriller which sees Iggy Pop play the role of Bill. Iggy has appeared in a number of films before but this is his first lead role.

Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression Album Review


Don't let the title fool you. Post Pop Depression is presented very deliberately as an Iggy Pop record, but, like the famous albums he made in Berlin with David Bowie, this is very much a collaborative effort and is all the stronger for it. 

Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression Album Review

With Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme on production and guitar duties, his QOTSA bandmate Dean Fertita on bass, and Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders on drums, this isn't quite an exhibition supergroup in the mould of Them Crooked Vultures, but rather a collection of accomplished musicians who have created a nuanced record, by turns brooding and buoyant, which bears the hallmarks of its creators.

It was Homme who Pop approached to bring the album into existence, and his fingerprints in particular are all over this record from the get go. The creeping minor-key guitar riffs of brilliant opener 'Break Into Your Heart' bring to mind Lullabies to Paralyze-era QOTSA, and 'American Valhalla' opens with tinkling toy piano which gives way to a lurching bass riff in a manner vividly reminiscent of 'Tangled Up in Plaid'. In this context, even Pop's baritone growl doesn't sound a million miles away from that of longtime Queens collaborator Mark Lanegan.

Super Duper Alice Cooper Trailer


It's fair to say that Vincent Furnier made musical history when he became Alice Cooper; an androgynous shock rocker who spent his teenage years pursuing a career in rock, and certainly not following in his preacher father's footsteps. From his inception, Alice Cooper went against the grain of what is accepted in modern music with over-the-top, gore-filled live shows which at one point saw a chicken get unwittingly murdered by his audience. However, the fun soon got out of hand when Alice Cooper and his band got fully submerged in the rock 'n' roll world of alcohol and drug abuse. Setting up the drinking club The Hollywood Vampires, Alice Cooper would be hospitalised more than once for his substance abuse issues, getting so obsessed with that world that he would not even be able to remember large chunks of his recording career.
