Now Playing Tracks

When one thinks of Lydia Loveless, Fleetwood Mac isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. The 20-something Ohio-born country punk has filled three albums with her own particular brand of Americana-laced rock and roll and, as her blistering live shows can attest, she doesn’t exactly hew to the Stevie Nicks style of flowing gowns and mystic balladry. However, on her third album, Somewhere Else, Loveless evidences a new, more sophisticated side. Lyrics are more nuanced. Guitar playing is more developed. Themes of drinking and sexual innuendo are (gasp!) toned down. The title track even echoes Fleetwood Mac, resembling “Dreams” from that band’s legendary Rumours. Time will tell whether Somewhere Else approaches such legendary status, but for now, suffice it to say that with this album, Loveless has created her masterpiece. She sat down with Under the Radar just prior to the album’s release to discuss artistic growth, the dangers of being pigeonholed, and why she’s still obsessed with the innuendo.

"Lithium" - St. Vincent (w/ Dave Grohl, Krist Novaselic, and Pat Smear)
originally by Nirvana

While the other singers who fronted Nirvana at their Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame introduction last week mostly, um, didn’t do well (Joan Jett, Lorde), Annie Clark (aka St Vincent) did a bang up job of Kurt-ing things up on this heartfelt version of “Lithium”.

In the history of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, how many bands have decided to break up before releasing their first Top 10 single in the U.S.? There can’t be many, but Swedish House Mafia is one such band. In June of 2012, the electronic dance supergroup, composed of DJs/producers Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso, announced that their next tour would be their last. “Don’t You Worry Child,” the trio’s final single before disbanding, had yet to be completed at the time of the announcement, but the song made its live debut in England the following month and was released to radio later that summer. That fall, within a week, the group sold over one million tickets to its final four months of shows. Dubbed One Last Tour, the trek took Swedish House Mafia to packed arenas and stadiums in more than 20 countries. For his feature-length documentary, Leave the World Behind, director Christian Larson covered a far and wide range of geographical territories to capture the frenzied sights and sounds of the farewell shows. Interspersed are individual interviews, footage of behind-the-scenes tensions among the group members and more tranquil moments at home with their respective families. Larson, who also wrote and directed the 2013 Sigor Rós short film, Valtari, spoke with Under the Radar to discuss the process of making Leave the World Behind.
