Already an industry veteran at 20, Rosie Carney writes songs that feel lived-in and worn, conveying a bruised ache well beyond her years. The Irish singer-songwriter has been letting singles trickle out for a few years now, and her latest, "Your Moon," strikes a sure-footed balance between airy tenderness and coolly jazzy melancholy. Carney signed and lost a record deal while still a teenager, yet each successive song finds her reaching more of her considerable potential. This year, she's…

It's not unusual for art to pull from adolescent experience, an infatuation with innocence. The danger, of course, is that hindsight is 20/20, and teenage experiences are much less awkward in retrospect.

"Teen Challenge" meanders on a well-defined course of the band's curation: opening with a '90s slacker-rock chord progression;…

I want to introduce you to Chad Clark, a Washington D.C. artist with the band Beauty Pill , which begins a tour today with a musical hero of Clark's and of mine, Arto Lindsay . Arto is a legendary Brazilian-American composer, singer, producer and experimental guitarist. His music is a combination of brash and calm — often, these days, in the very same song. I first heard Arto's brash side on a 1978 compilation called No New York , a collection of "no wave" artists from NYC, produced by B…

Medical spending has resumed its long-term rise. After several years of deceptive stability in the last, deep recession’s wake, health spending rose by 3.7 percentage points more than general inflation in 2014, then by 5.8 percentage points more in 2015, to a 17.8 percent share of the US economy. Not only does this spending rise threaten the United States’ fiscal stability and capacity to address other needs; it is undermining the promise of health care for all. To manage rising costs, ins…

If all goes to plan, NASA's Cassini spacecraft will beam new images of Saturn and its rings to Earth early Thursday, sharing data from its first dive through the gap between the planet and its striped belt of ice and rock particles. Today's dive also marks the start of the final phase in the craft's 13-year visit to Saturn. Days ago, it used the gravity of Saturn's moon Titan to bend its path toward its eventual destruction on the planet. Cassini descended below the ring plane around 5…
