One of the world’s greatest pop singer-songwriters seemed to achieve her final form this year by having drunken sex with a muppet in a music video called “Disco Tits.” The song itself is a jam, a poised and minimal dance-floor deconstruction that toggles between spacious staccato piano stabs and synthetic bass throbs that roll with … More »
Pop music is littered with the shattered remains of relationships. As the stereotype goes: Personal strife often makes for good art. And for many artists, nothing is more of a catalyst for a great song than romantic discord or destruction. The list of classic breakup songs and albums feels endless; some artists’ whole catalogs seem … More »
Last night, Coldplay played a show at Portland’s Moda Center. They opened their set with a moment of silence for Tom Petty, who had passed away earlier that night. And when they came onstage, they opened their set by welcoming Peter Buck, the former R.E.M. guitarist and current Portland resident, to help them cover … More »
The big surprise guest at Dave Matthews’ Concert For Charlottesville last night was Stevie Wonder, who came out during the Dave Matthews’ set to perform three songs with the band, including a pretty stunning version of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” But early in the show, there was another surprise: Coldplay — or, anyway, frontman Chris … More »

Fan safety needs to be the priority for any and all concerts and events. In many cases promoters and artists decide to cancel or reschedule shows when conditions are not entirely safe. That is why it is a bit weird that Coldplay has decided not to cancel or even just reschedule their show in Houston

“I could fight forever, but life’s too short.” Every lyric on Rainbow — Kesha’s first album in five years and the first since initiating a messy legal battle against former producer and label head Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald — is loaded, but those words in particular stand out. They’re among the first lines on album … More »
If you’re expecting a harsh Coldplay smackdown, this is the wrong place. My TMT colleague S. David dropped some wisdom with a recent review/takedown of Chris Martin & co.’s recent EP. No doubt Coldplay is a laughably stupid band, and it’s hard to fathom their ability to stay on the charts for twenty years (!) of blandness. And, if we’re being honest, their EDM cash grab with The Chainsmokers, “Something Just Like This,” reeks of a cheap crossover. I can’t deny it, but I also cannot deny that it’s a catchy tune! Some readers, and even some of my fellow writers, might be thinking I went off the deep end, and they’re probably right. Real talk 101: I dug Deadmau5 when I was 17, and that crap got me to check out Aphex and other, better electronic tunes. The core demographic for Chainsmokers, and Coldplay, are idiots, but there could be some curious listeners willing to dig a little deeper and become serious heads in a couple years. In a way, that’s all pretty positive, isn’t it? Also, I’m just gonna say it, this song is sick!
