By: Eric Erlandson. A catharsis for the writer and perhaps for the reader as well. Dozens of people could have written their own version of this bracingly candid book; Eric Erlandson has written one, filled with rage and love, landmined with detail, that can stand for them all. Quiet, bemused, intelligent, and curiously intuitive to the power of hugging the devil, to say we will all be okay. Bring on the future, darling. He was always there: supportive, observing, in the thick of it.
Hidden in plain sight. Your efforts may not be successful, but there is small comfort in knowing you tried.
Hole's Eric Erlandson Talks 'Letters to Kurt' Book, Courtney Love
Sometimes small comfort is all we get: for Eric Erlandson, it will have to suffice. I've sworn, after learning about the latest kleptocrat billionaire to buy a club, or scrambling from the clash between hooligans and riot police, or hearing a homophobic chant rise up from the stands, I would give up on the game.
Anyone with sense would. Ahead of her next album, Is It the Kiss , folk artist Ana Egge sweetly ruminates over classic country tales with her new single, "Cocaine Cowboys". These Library of Congress prints have been digitally restored by Lobster Films in Paris and consistently look and sound very good. In Solid State , acclaimed Beatles historian Kenneth Womack offers the most definitive account yet of the writing, recording, mixing, and reception of Abbey Road. Despite the mostly upbeat nature of Pixx's Small Mercies , there's a dread surrounding its world.
Guitar Wolf, Japan's answer to the Ramones, has proudly kept their shtick going for 32 years, and the ravenous pack doesn't let up in their latest, Love and Jett. Hannah Cohen creates a musical space in Welcome Home where an exploration of identity is conducted with intimacy and vulnerability.
While previously released demos from the year special edition, "Nobody's Girl" and "Throwin' Myself Away" would have fit perfectly on Gomez's Liquid Skin , given a little spit and polish, "Someday" is something else entirely. Baroness return with their most ambitious work to date, while Pinkish Black continue to explore the endless possibilities of synth driven extreme music.
HBO's My Brilliant Friend feels almost radical for its raw and un-romanticized depiction of female friendship and resistance in all its emotional complexities. Like their namesake, Black Midi are a restless, unstoppable force that push their members and listeners to their limits in Schlagenheim.
