'Wonder' - big curiosity on small scale
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
'Wonder' - big curiosity on small scale Occasionally an exhibition, such as "Wonder," the Berkeley Art Center's unjuried members' annual, invites us to imagine dilemmas of the contemporary artist. Behind that question lies the constant difficulty of deciding what sort of fabricated things - in what state of finish, in what lineage and frame of reference, in what quantity - artists are willing to claim as their own. For those who have something like a signature style, or who already enjoy some local prominence, such as abstractionists Jenny Bloomfield, Kimberly Rowe and John Wood, I imagine that the quandary of choosing a single key work might have stung little, if at all. Pieces by many people unknown to me make me wonder what other work and what temperament lie behind them. Justine Frischmann's little abstract painting on panel "Lambent Series, #2" (2012) wears an aspect of such unforced confidence as to make me wonder why her name is unfamiliar. Lyons offer ...

Kayley Kravitz: Why I'm Glad I Grew Up With the Spice Girls
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Every generation has its female teen idols. Girls of the 1960s had groups like The Supremes and The Ronettes. In the '80s, girls had Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. Those of us who grew up in the '90s had the Spice Girls. Their reunion at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony was the perfect mix of excitement, fun and nostalgia. No matter how old I get, I'll always love the Spice Girls and am thankful that I grew up under their influence. Scary, Sporty, Baby, Ginger and Posh hit the scene in 1996. "Wannabe" was a smash single and the girls quickly achieved international stardom. They went on world tours, starred in their own movie and even had a line of dolls created in their image. The inevitable stress of such success prompted Ginger's departure from the group in 1998. The remaining four Spices continued making music but ultimately split in 2000. In 2007, the girls put aside their differences and announced a reunion tour. The '90s were certainly over but Spicemania was not. A ...

Kayley Kravitz: Revisiting Britpop in 2012
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Thanks to the summer Olympic games, all eyes are on London. Danny Boyle's opening ceremony was nothing short of a spectacle. As promised, it featured a lengthy nod to the UK's vast musical history. From the Beatles to New Order to Dizzee Rascal, many artists were represented. Still, this music fan couldn't help but be disappointed by the lack of Britpop (Blur's "Song 2" aside). Sure, my fellow Americans may remember little more than Oasis, but these bands ruled the British charts and changed the landscape of popular music. The British music press coined the term "Britpop" in the early '90s to describe the new guitar pop bands of the time. At the start of the decade, baggy shoegaze music ruled the airwaves. Bands like Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine dominated the alternative rock scene. Some of these bands like Lush and The Verve eventually crossed over and scored Britpop hits with songs like "Ladykillers" and "Bittersweet Symphony." When Suede hit the scene in 1992, they c ...

Damon Albarn: Gorillaz, heroin and the last days of Blur
Guardian (UK) - almost 5 years
Do Blur have a future? Are Gorillaz gone for good? Is his feud with Noel Gallagher really over? The heroin issue… Damon Albarn answers some tricky questions You get a good view from the top floor of Damon Albarn's west London studio: the uneven sprawl extending out towards Kensal Green and Wormwood Scrubs. The first thing you notice, though, is the huge elevated road celebrated by Albarn's band Blur, whose single For Tomorrow crystallised the queasy alienation of London living as a matter of being "lost on the Westway". Soon enough, Albarn tells me, what we can see is set to be transformed by a 34-storey student hall of residence. He is not best pleased, and having registered a planning objection, his pain has been poured into a new song he plays me just before I go home, full of references to "men in yellow hats" and a world "where the money always comes first". This is Under The Westway, premiered by Albarn and Blur's guitarist Graham Coxon at a charity concert in February, now r ...

12 Most Groundbreaking Pop Songs Ever
NME - almost 5 years
Pop Music in 2012 is a pretty well groomed and developed beast. You have to look outside the Top 40 to find the most boundary-pushing jams in the form of Frank Ocean, Grimes or Niki & The Dove. But before then, there was a whole host of tracks which broke new ground and made pop music what it is now. Let's take a look back at 12 of them now. 12MIA- 'Galang’ Its roots were in the dying embers of Electroclash (MIA adopted the Roland MC-505 drum machine after seeing what Peaches did with it on ‘The Teaches Of Peaches’) and Elastica (it was co-written by Justine Frischmann and originally intended for the band), but ‘Galang’ was game changing, bringing elements of dancehall into collision with hip-hop, pop culture references undercut with a pan-global feel. Released: June, 2003 Find it: 'Arular' Highest UK chart position: 77 Read more...
