As is evident by the number of concerts Janet has already performed on the online concert platform StageIt, she is ahead of the curve with the oncoming trend of artists performing concerts online. For a number of years Janet has been treating her most supportive fans, often referred to as the ‘Do-Crew’, to live performances from her studio, with two streams on each designated day enabling fans in Europe and America to catch concerts convenient to their time zones.
We’ve got two clips today from of Montreal, who we last saw in 2016, when they were examining “dilemme féminin”, in their single, ‘It’s Different For Girls’. A lot’s changed in the last 4 years or so for the Athens Georgia pop shapeshifters, whose latest album – astonishingly their 16th – ‘UR FUN’ sees core member Kevin Barnes going it alone, and for the clips for ‘Get God’s Attention By Being An Atheist’ And ‘Polyaneurism’, he’s also ditched his familiar costumes and drag…but they’re replaced by something equally surprising.
‘Bridey Murphy’ is the latest EP by Jay Tonne – formerly the singer and songwriter of Black Forest Fire, from Austin – who writes, records, and performs as Tonne. Set for release March 13, the album is filled to the brim with Tom Petty like vocals and guitar – upbeat and heavy, yet at the same time melodic and pulling inspiration from the likes of Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, and early REM. Lead single, ‘Catalina’, calls up long hot summer days, sprawled on the beach – well it does that for me anyway.
