Liars have always been a vehicle to probe the unknown for frontman Angus Andrew. Whether that meant concocting freakish drones with contact mics or approaching the guitar as an artist rather than a musician, it seems that novelty has always allowed (and forced) the group to grow. That parenthetical is particularly apropos, as Liars underwent their biggest change of all when founding member Aaron Hemphell quit the group earlier this year and left Andrew as its sole creative force.
Ever since the release of the 2015 N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” the mythology surrounding Dr. Dre has reached Brian Wilson-level proportions – and rightly so. Like The Beach Boys’ savant, his singular vision and gifted ear for melody, harmony and timbre changed the face of music. The movie also demonstrated his beleaguered ascent to superstardom, especially in a scene where Dre is attempting to shop his 1992 debut “The Chronic” with little success. When no other labels are willing t...
From its inception, “You’re the Worst” has never been a show to follow the rules. After all, the show’s main couple Jimmy (Chris Geere) and Gretchen (Aya Cash) meet outside the former’s ex’s wedding, him practicing a list of pre-meditated heckles written for the occasion while she walks out of the festivities with one of the wedding presents under her arm. Think of it as the meet cute from hell. These offensive monsters are wrong for pretty much any human relationship, not to mention society ...
“Disjointed,” the latest multi-camera floating timeline romp from Chuck Lorre, is essentially to stoner culture what “The Big Bang Theory” is to nerd culture. The show focuses on Ruth Whitefeather Feldman (Kathy Bates), a lifelong marijuana rights activist who opens a legal dispensary in L.A. Though its premise is too edgy for the networks, the show plays it as safe as possible while completely missing the mark at every turn, using four-letter words and drug culture jokes as window dressing for an uninspired, by-the-numbers affair.

For many in the L.A. music scene, the homegrown FYF Fest will always be remembered as the scrappy little festival that could. Of course, as time has gone on, the festival has morphed into a behemoth, complete with corporate sponsorship and this year’s big name headliners like Missy Elliott, Björk, Frank Ocean, Nine Inch Nails and Solange.
Heavy metal nine-piece Slipknot have won over metalheads with their sonic intensity and insane live sets, and now the mask-wearing madmen are teaming up with Black Sabbath to throw the monster of all metal festivals when Ozzfest Meets Knotfest.
When assessing the music of Foster the People, it’s impossible not to acknowledge the pernicious edge they give their indie pop songs. Their 2011 debut “Torches” had a sinister smile plastered on its proverbial face, finding gleeful abandon and demented humor in tracks like “Helena Beat” and “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls).”
“Jesus died for somebody’s sins, but not mine.” It’s one of the best introductory lines in all of rock ‘n’ roll, and maybe in the entire history of artistic expression. With these succinct words, Patti Smith displays the defiance, intelligence and poesy that have set her apart from her contemporaries and imitators, and all within the first 20 seconds of Horses.
