‘I won’t apologize for the fire in my eyes,’ sings the embattled pop star in her anthemic new collaboration with EDM star Zedd
“I’m not afraid,” Kesha declares in True Colors, her first song in three years. Not to be confused with Cyndi Lauper’s 80s classic, True Colors is less danceable than Kesha’s last single, Timber, her 2013 collaboration with Pitbull – but it’s no less addictive.
First debuted at Coachella with EDM artist Zedd, True Colors finds the pop star in an urgent and defiant mood. Given all that’s transpired since Kesha brought a lawsuit against her former mentor for sexual assault in 2014 (most recently, a judge in New York dismissed her case), the tone couldn’t be more appropriate. Consider True Colors her #FreeKesha anthem.Continue reading...
The rapper’s latest album offers a lengthy inventory of miseries, cleverly offset by a sly sense of humour and eclectic sound. It is compelling evidence that this is the defining pop artist of the moment
Midway through Drake’s fourth studio album comes a song called Still Here. The musical backdrop is sparse and eerie – its two-chord hook marooned over a scattering of vaguely gothic-sounding electronics – but the mood is self-congratulatory: “Doin’ well, dog,” he keeps repeating, with the air of a man who might be nodding his head and smiling as he says it.
This counts as one of Drake’s more understated assessments of his own talent and success. By his own account, he is a man apparently troubled by many things, but a crippling sense of modesty has never been among them. It’s a statement that’s hard to disagree with: at 29, he could make a reasonable claim not merely to be the biggest crossover star in hip-hop, but the defining pop artist of the moment, citing the current singles chart as evidence. It’s not just that he features on three singles in this week’s Top 40, one at No 1, another a former No 1 and the third – a gloomy confection of off-key synthesizer and muffled female vocals erroneously titled Pop Style – a track so uncommercial that it’s tempting to wonder if it really has any business being in the charts at all. It’s that his patent brand of melancholy, poor-me solipsism seems to have become pop music’s default mode of expression.Continue reading...
Hammersmith Apollo, LondonFrom ravers to old-school fans, Porter’s ability to appeal to a wide demographic bears solid testimony to his appeal
Gregory Porter certainly attracts a broad demographic. There are twentysomething ravers who’ve heard him guest with Disclosure, old-school R&B fans who’ve been introduced to him by Gilles Peterson, and fiftysomething couples for whom he’s a fixture of tea-time telly.Continue reading...
Summerhall, EdinburghThe Osaka rockers bounce through their catchy numbers with the excitable abandon of teenagers
Round the corner from Summerhall there’s a pub called the Southern, which in 1991 entered local rock’n’roll folklore by hosting an impromptu acoustic set from Nirvana. Many in Edinburgh still dine out on claims to have been there. Certainly Shonen Knife were present, the Japanese trio having tagged along after supporting the soon-to-be world famous Seattleites at the city’s Calton Studios. Kurt Cobain was a huge fan of this then still very obscure Osaka band, and his patronage helped catalyse a career that now spans 20 albums.
At 55 years old, the sole constant original member, singer-guitarist Naoko Yamano, remains a wellspring of enthusiasm for the elementary pleasure of punk-pop. She looks little older than the band’s young new drummer, Risa, and still plays with all the excitability of a teenager who’s just learned three chords and realised she’s got the mastering of most of the Ramones catalogue. “We are happy to come back to Edinburgh rock city,” she proclaims, punctuating the sentence with a devil horn. Soon Yamano and her sister, bassist Atsuko – another founder member recently restored to the fold – are flicking their hair to Twist Barbie like they invented headbanging.Continue reading...
