A profoundly affecting collection
2012 | Label: Columbia

Patti Smith’s best-selling 2010 memoir Just Kids meticulously described her intimate, intricate friendship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. The narration was doubly resonant: Readers gleaned Smith’s essence first through her own first-person recollections and how she described interacting with her late collaborator and confidant. Banga, her first album of new material since 2004′s Trampin’, largely draws its emotional exposition from the latter. The result is a profoundly affecting collection which finds the revered artist wholly engaged… read more »

A Profoundly Affecting Collection?

BeInformed

Yikes, I am running for the air-sick-bag. Just does nothing for me. not at all memorable. Through against wall and there is no stick. There is no there, there.

Patti Smith Is The Only Exsisting Musician that Music is Just As Good and Never changed How good it was Since Her First Music (Blue Oyster Cult) till 2012 Surviving People With The Same Name Spelled Differently (her fans leaned which one she was) and 3 or 4 wars! being The "PEACE WOMAN " Those War Mongrals want her Dead!

Who Are…U.S. Girls

By Marissa G. Muller, Contributor

That Meghan Remy's retro solo project is called U.S. Girls is perhaps the first indication of the duality lurking in her music. "I knew I was going to be only one person making music, but I thought the plural was funny," she explains over the phone from her Toronto home. Her playfulness might seem unexpected given the gravity of topics she writes about – abortion, depression, suicide, lost love and loneliness – but there's a… more »

Icon: Patti Smith

By Sam Adams, Contributor

A singular artist in an era where female musicians were most often kept under the thumb of their bandmates or managers, Patti Smith looked and sounded like no one else - a statement as true now as it was in 1975, when her first album, Horses, was released. Having worked as an actor, a playwright and, most frequently, a poet, Smith brought a range of experiences to her early recordings, and rather than leave off… more »

Six Degrees of Blue Oyster Cult’s Agents of Fortune

By Nate Patrin, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

Who Is…Little Scream

By Rachael Maddux, Contributor

Laurel Sprengelmeyer, who makes music as Little Scream, named her debut album The Golden Record — which might seem like an act of hubris if you think she means the kind that get framed and hung behind the desks of smug label executives. Fortunately, Sprengelmeyer was thinking more along the lines of the gold phonograph record that was bundled into the Voyager spacecraft in 1977, which bore in its grooves a Carl Sagan-approved playlist of… more »
