More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks: Best of 2009

Raekwon did something that seemed impossible: he delivered a successful sequel, to a classic album, over a decade after the original was released. Cuban Linx II is a reminder of when hip-hop was great, and reminds us of what hip-hop’s missing now. This was, hands down, 2009's greatest musical accomplishment. ... »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks – My Week in Music

First off, let me say that my Jay-Z album cover theory was flawed. I guess technically it's still sound, since, while you can't see his eyes on the cover of The Blueprint 3, you can't see him at all, so it's sort of outside the scope of my theory. ... »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks - Past, Present and Possibly Future

Ok, so roughly six months ago, I made up a list of ten things that I was hoping would come to pass in the year 2009. And since 2009 is half-over, I figured that now would be a good time to revisit that list and see how much of what I wished for has come to pass. ... »»

MGF Reviews The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely

The Raconteurs - Consolers of Lonely Warner Brothers (3/25/08) Rock / Blues Let's call it, for now and perpetuity: It looks like The Raconteurs are going to replace The White Stripes as Jack White's primary outlet of creativity. While no serious rumors of a Jack & Meg split are swirling, no one pours this much effort into a mere "side project". Consolers of the Lonely is an early contender for Album of the Year, and considering the short amount of time it traveled from their synapses to our eardrums, it clearly comes from some other planet. This record shows that Jack's retro fixation isn't a gimmick or post-ironic drag; he's making music that is informed by all the best from the '60s and '70s and could still stand alone next to all its influences. Having a group of fellow retro geeks in Brendan Benson, Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence (the last two of the Greenhornes) gives Jack's brilliant musical autism a focus, and the backing of a full band shows how well White's mind functions when someone else is throwing ideas at him. It feels like treason for a die-hard White Stripes fan like myself to say so, but Jack White may have found his true calling with The Raconteurs. The bitterness and tension that permeated the last White Stripes record, Icky Thump, shows up again on the first few tracks of Consolers of the Lonely. The title track kicks things off with a laundry list of complaints, culminating with the chorus of "I'm bored to tears". The time signature sputters and lurches at different speeds all through this song, but it's never jarring. The breakdown at the end features some insane bass and guitar dueling that shows the Racs are all about chops, and they sound like the aural equivalent of a speed binge. "Consolers of the Lonely" launches headfirst into the first single, "Salute Your Solution", and the pace never cools off from there. No question at all that this song was birthed from Dee-troit natives, because it's pure Moblow garage trash that grabs hold quick and don't say please (see requisite pissy bitterness in the lyrics: "I got what I got just to spite you"). »»
