Bodhisattva of the Surf Guitar
A conversation with Dick Dale
By August March
Dick Dale invented summertime. Before he figured out how to channel the power of the ocean and the intensity of non-Western rhythms through an electric guitar, the kids in southern California were mostly square and spent the months between June and September going to barn dances, politely adhering to their parents’ customs, never daring to wander away from 4/4 timing, never craving to turn the volume up to 11.

Kate Bush Mourns Prince
It's almost too much
By Maggie Grimason [ Tue Apr 26 2016 4:59 PM ]
Kate Bush and Prince collaborated several times. In her digital eulogy of the pop royalty on her website, Bush stated:
I am so sad and shocked to hear the tragic news about Prince. He was the most incredibly talented artist. A man in complete control of his work from writer and musician to producer and director. He was such an inspiration. Playful and mind-blowingly gifted. He was the most inventive and extraordinary live act I've seen. The world has lost someone truly magical. Goodnight dear Prince.
Prince appeared on the track embedded here, "Why Should I Love You" from Bush's 1993 album Red Shoes and, in turn, Bush collaborated with Prince on his album, Emancipation.

The Liminal States of Chelsea Wolfe
In her music the singer bisects all the bullshit and all the beauty
By Maggie Grimason
Chelsea Wolfe’s Abyss equals much more than the sum of its fuzzed out guitar and thudding industrial synth, and it's Wolfe's confident voice that is the album's spine. Maggie Grimason speaks to the artist in advance of her April 26 Sister show.
