https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBA0PUQCvIA Shortly before the release of Humanz , Pusha T revealed the organizing principle behind Gorillaz' spectacular fifth album. The rapper appears with Mavis Staples on the song "Let Me Out," in which he imagines the 77-year-old former lead vocalist of the Staple Singers as his mother on the brink of death — and, at the same time, contemplates the U.S. moving out of the hope of the Obama era. Pusha explained on Apple's Beats 1 Radio that Gorillaz' c…
A few weeks ago, my husband brought home a bottle of chilled beverage that wasn't on the grocery list I had sent him out with. It was a bottle of pre-packaged sugarcane juice – a novelty in a market flooded with bottled soda and mango drinks. But one sip of the drink and I was transported back to my childhood summers. I grew up in the southern city of Chennai, where summers are scorching. And sugarcane juice was a popular seasonal cooler. I would stop for a tall glass of freshly pressed j…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi7mmLtIixw One afternoon in 2009, I ran into Jonathan Demme on the sidewalk in Woodstock, N.Y. We'd known each other glancingly since the 1980s, thanks to a shared life in downtown NYC, seeing bands in clubs and going to screenings. As it happened, I was on my way to a film festival showing of a movie I'd made. And there was Demme, in town with his Neil Young Trunk Show , a follow-up to the seminal doc Heart of Gold (2006), ambling down the street by…
Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah , the firebrand trumpeter from New Orleans, doesn't go in for small gestures. His current project is The Centennial Trilogy , a three-album series intended to confront a range of societal issues, especially as they relate to the African-American population. The style of this new work carries a no less ambitious agenda, blending aspects of post-bop, trap and electronics, according to the non-idiomatic designation that Adjuah likes to call "Stretch Music." Ruler…
Much of the Greenbelt is closed and underwater, due to flooding on the Boise River. But eventually, the water will recede, leaving much of the 25 miles of pathway damaged or destroyed. But Boise has a plan once the river slows down. In many places, the Greenbelt has been totally washed out by the river, which is well above flood stage. And City of Boise Spokesman Mike Journee says there’s more damage below the surface of the path. “We’re seeing places where the bank is being eroded under…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGZXzmM1smM "I heard someone say once that you don't know what real power is until you're on the wrong side of it," Algiers' frontman, Franklin James Fisher tells NPR. The concept underpins Algiers' newest record and its title track, "The Underside of Power," the video for which we're premiering today. As "someone who has known firsthand the full brunt of institutional force," Fisher says, "the feeling of being completely vulnerable to it and powerless…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1LLWHroWgA It's been four long summers since Days Are Gone , which is the only way to count our time away from the sparkling pop-rock of HAIM . After teasing us with billboards around the world and solo / drum circle studio performances, HAIM are finally back with a new song from Something To Tell You , due July 7 on Columbia. Here's a live studio version of "Right Now," shot and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson ( Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood, The…
There will be a "teach-in" Thursday, April 26 at noon at the Boise State University library. That's a lesson followed by open discussion. If that sounds like a throwback to an earlier time, it is. But the topic is very present day - it's about the new energy policy of the Trump administration. It's sponsored by the Center for Idaho History and Politics and it's being presented by Jen Schneider, an associate professor in the School of Public Service. Schneider spoke to Tom Michael about the…
As the 50th anniversary of the greatest rock album of all time rapidly nears, Capitol Records is sharing a previously unreleased outtake from the Sgt. Pepper's recording sessions. The clip, premiered at The Guardian , is a stripped-down version of the album's opening title cut and includes some fantastic chatter between John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison. It's an unadorned and intimate version of the song that offers a glimpse into how The Beatles first imagined the track.…

The new "textalyzer" technology is modeled after the breathalyzer, and would determine if you had been using your phone illegally on the road. Lawmakers in New York and a handful of other cities and states are considering allowing police to use the device to crack into…
United Airlines is making changes after a man was forcibly removed from one of its flights earlier this month, promising to cut down on overbooking and raise the maximum incentive for passengers to skip a flight to $10,000. On the flight that became a public-relations nightmare for the company, compensation for being voluntarily bumped had topped out at $1,000. United will "empower its personnel to make decisions and find solutions that make sense for both customers and employees," CEO…
