REMEMBERING FRANKIE KNUCKLES: Rest in Peace, Godfather Of House Music

Frankie-Knuckles

 

For anyone that has listened to any contemporary electronic dance music since

the early 1980’s until now (whether good, bad or neutral), you can almost certainly thank

Frankie Knuckles for developing the original sound of house music that has influenced

thousands of DJ’s worldwide since Knuckles began spinning at the now-defunct

“Warehouse” in Chicago in 1977.

Pøp Picks 4/7/14

PUre-x

‘things we thought were cool’ by various members of the POP! workgroup 2014:

Pure X – Angel

Some nice, quiet music from/for some nice, quiet boys. Sometimes, I hear a voice in my head say “turn down for what”? Turn down for this. The airbrushed full moon night inside of a melting heart on the album’s cover ain’t no joke –– Angel is a sugar-sweet ride through a tunnel of love. The album is far from sappy, though; more tender, and tasty, and super-enjoyable-sexy-great.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Wig Out at Jagbags

I want to know what/where a Jagbag is. I would totes wig out at one. This album, decorated simply with Edwardian Script and a succulent strawberry, is simply good fun. For those fans of one of the dopest bands of all time, Pavement, yr in luck. Ya boi Steve and his Jicks sound just like the good ol’ days Pavement.

Cloud Nothings – Here and Nowhere Else

So what if there are less obvious post-hardcore-y jams on this album? You gonna doubt this one because Steve Albini didn’t produce it? Well…doubt it all you want – but give it a few headphone-deep listens and Dylan Baldi’s songwriting will make you wish you actually played guitar for longer than 3 months when you were 14. With more Nirvana and Wipers-esque vibes than ever, HANE (what an acronym!) rlly kicks sum ass.

things we thought were wack:

Drake Bell – Ready Set Go

drake

Skaters – Manhattan

This urban-outfitters-core band go hard with their “we have our own zine and three of us wear baseball hats at all times-wave” but they’re signed to Warner Bros so their underground cred is officially null. the blog says “a site so filthy you will have to turn on safe search” but the only unsafe thing on here is their lame poser attitudes.  Not everyone agrees with our assessment—”Dorianiscool19″ gave their album a four star review on iTunes: ”so awesome lol. The whole album is pretty chill honestly having cool catchy beats and the lyrics flow quite nice through the whole album.”  Take a listen to this highly polarizing album yourself!

stay tuned for more pop pix!
