Justin Timberlake to Pen New Music for Animated 'Trolls' Movie Justin Timberlake will write and perform new songs for the upcoming animated film, Trolls, in which he's also slated to voice one of the characters, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Timberlake will also serve as executive music producer for the DreamWorks Animation film, which is based on the famous, frizzy-haired toys. "I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event," Timberlake said in a statement. In the movie, Timberlake will voice Branch, previously described by the studio as "a hardcore survivalist who hides his surprising true colors." In the movie, Branch embarks on a journey to discover his roots alongside Princess Poppy, voiced by Anna Kendrick. Trolls is directed by Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After) and is scheduled to open November 4th. Trolls will mark Timberlake's first movie since 2013, when he appeared in Runner Runner and the Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis. The new music he'll pen for the animated feature will also be his first since that same year, when he released his two-part album, The 20/20 Experience. Timberlake has been relatively quiet since wrapping up his extensive tour behind The 20/20 Experience, in part to help raise his first child with wife Jessica Biel. Last November, Timberlake appeared alongside country music underdog Chris Stapleton at the CMA Awards for a show-stopping performance of George Jones' "Tennessee Whiskey" and his own 20/20 cut "Drink You Away." Lamb of God's Randy Blythe Plans Futuristic Novel Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has found a way to kill some downtime during his band's upcoming winter trek with Anthrax: According to the singer, he's

currently outlining a futuristic novel. "It's set 50 to 100 years in the future," Blythe told Metal Hammer. "I'm wracking my brain right now, because you have to figure out all sorts of little things we don't think about, because of the incredibly rapid advancement of technology." Blythe previously penned a memoir titled Dark Days, which focused on his time in a Prague prison while on trial for manslaughter. As a seasoned author, Blythe compared making music to the art of writing. "Writing a book makes writing a record look like going to kindergarten. It's a much more tense, concerted, extended, creative effort – it requires a lot of focus that this environment does not provide," Blythe said, adding that touring wasn't conducive for writing. While Blythe likely won't get any writing done during the winter trek, he still plans on working out the story's plot and other elements. "I've been thinking about the plot, and at first I thought, 'Oh the ending's just got to be awful.' But then I thought, 'That's self-indulgent,'" he told Metal Hammer. "I've been thinking about how I can make the end of the book optimistic, and it's hard. I haven't decided how it's going to end, but more than likely there's got to be an optimistic end. Otherwise, I'll just be depressed. And real life is depressing enough." Blythe, who has also tried his hand at composing ballet, also described himself as "a decent writer." Lamb of God's tour with Anthrax kicked off January 15th in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Willie Nelson to Guest on Cyndi Lauper Country Album During the holiday season, Cyndi Lauper unwrapped a preview of her upcoming Detour project she recorded in Nashville. The pop icon's cover of Dolly Parton's "Hard Candy Christmas" from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is one of the more modern additions to an album which Lauper says is largely "an homage to when country and R&B were close together."

Although Parton is not heard on Detour, another country legend who will be is Willie Nelson. The Red Headed Stranger shares vocals on an as-yet-unidentified track and his mere presence in the recording studio was almost too much for the "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" singer. "I tried to be professional, but you know when you're overwhelmed — when he came in, I almost cried," Lauper tells EW.com of their first meeting. From the frothy synth-pop of the early Eighties to her 2003 collection of jazz standards At Last — not to mention a Tony-winning turn as the composer of the Broadway hit Kinky Boots — Lauper's musical journey from the streets of Ozone Park in Queens to stages throughout the world has been a swirl of wide-ranging influences. Detour, which will largely draw inspiration from Fifties and Sixties country, continues the singer's exploration of American music that was last heard on 2010's Memphis Blues, which featured collaborations with Allen Toussaint, B.B. King and Ann Peebles, among others. A release date has yet to be announced for Detour, but the LP pairs Lauper with "dream label" Sire Records and its founder Seymour Stein, who serves as executive producer of the project. Charles Kelley Enlists Miranda Lambert, Stevie Nicks for Solo LP Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley has set February 5th as the release date for his solo debut The Driver and has enlisted rock goddess Stevie Nicks and country superstar Miranda Lambert to ride along with him. While the latter joins the Augusta, Georgia native on "I Wish You Were Here," penned by Jedd Hughes, Kelley and Nicks take on a cover of the moody "Southern Accents," the title track of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 1985 album. The lead single from The Driver – and its title track – revisits the territory of the three-part harmony of Kelley's Lady A roots, as Dierks Bentley and

Eric Paslay accompany him on that track, which they debuted in the fall during an appearance on the The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Their recording earned the trio a Grammy nomination. Kelley is a co-writer of four of the LP's nine tracks, and other contributors include Chris Stapleton, Daniel Tashian and Nathan Chapman, while Kelley co-penned "Round in Circles" with his brother, singersongwriter Josh Kelley, marking the first time the siblings had worked together since Josh's early solo efforts. Of the title track, Kelley tells Rolling Stone Country, "'The Driver' is the last eight years of my life put in a song. That appreciation for the audience, that appreciation for your road family, and doing what you love to do." The last song recorded for the record was "The Only One Who Gets Me," the first time Kelley has written a song specifically for and about his wife, Cassie. "While so many of these songs are something I specifically can relate to, it really is all of our story," Kelley notes. "It is a pure musical left turn, to take myself out of my own head and bring in a fresh perspective when we go back in to make the next Lady Antebellum record." The Driver is available for preorder at iTunes with the title cut served up as an instant download. Additional tracks will become available each Friday with album preorders leading up to the official release on Friday, February 5th.

When you release 21 full length albums from your own projects and over 40 albums as a producer for other acts, I think it's safe to say that being labeled under legendary status is a given. Working in the studio with acts such as The Band, Badfinger, New York Dolls, Grand Funk, Hall & Oates, Meat Loaf, The Tubes, Rick Derringer, The Psychedelic Furs, Cheap Trick, Paul Shaffer and Bad Religion, to name a few. Todd Rundgren has been involved in the making of countless hits as well as a few of his own. One of those being, “Bang the Drum All Day,” which is still played in just about every major arena in existence. I have to admit that I am a little star struck at the moment. It's not every day you have the opportunity to interview a legend like Pennsylvania born, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer Todd Rundgren. As you can imagine it is a little nerve racking, but today is the day I sit down with him to converse about life, past, present and future. Ok, I can do this, just breathe deep. I look back on my 48 years of existence and I have to say that my life has been pretty good. While I feel that it's longevity has lasted for about forever and a day there has been a few things that I could always count on to be there, family, love, heartbreak, excitement, pain and

Mr. Rundgren’s historic career. Spanning 50 years and still going what possibly can keep ones self still pushing forward in the same line of work. Todd says, “I just refuse to except that time has any bearing at all. In my own head, I'm still in some other more ideal age frame. Not adolescent because there are happier times for me, so I'm mentally still in my mid-30’s.” Looking forward in a career, you have a tendency to put a time stamp on the future. Rundgren tells me that even though every once in a while he gets a reminder of how old he actually is, he hasn't really thought about putting an end to it. “I have made a resolution at one point that I wasn't going to waste my time,” he says. “If I'm going to make records, I'm going to continue learning in the process. A lot of people don't have a career like mine mostly because they haven't had the combination of things I have been blessed with. Early on, I thought I was going to be a producer and engineer. I had a band but I really didn't like that dynamic. Not being in control as an artist, but as a producer you have that control. I feel that in some cases, I have had a more successful career as a record producer, because I haven't had a record like “Bat Out of Hell” or “Were An American Band,” which were very successful. Although that freed me up to follow my own muse. I wasn't dependent

on my musical career to provide for my livelihood.” The word success can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people so I like to have an artist define it on a personal level. Todd tells me, “Success means to be able to continue in what I do and not give it up for something else. I'm still able to make a living as a musician even though being a producer has gone by the way side along with some of the other traditional things in music.” There are things in your life that you truly enjoy, favorites. With everything he has been involved with throughout his storied career, I decide to put him on the spot. There has to be a favorite project of his own. “Ringo’s All-Stars,” he says. “We are going into the fourth year now. That continues to be a lot of fun. With that I get to perform in front of crowds that are much larger than what I would get to perform in front of on my own. There is a production level that I wouldn't be able to afford. That includes how we travel. I get to live a life that I wouldn't be able to afford if I had to pay for it. So there are many things within that project that stand out making it my favorite.” As the topic changes to influences he tells me how keeping himself open to as many musical influences as possible has worked for him. I turn it around and ask how it feels to be so influential himself. His answer starts with a long pause, “To be honest, I'm never aware of that unless somebody points it out. I know of certain artists that who have gone through some trouble to point it out. I have worked with some artists that because of my influence have wanted me to work with them. Beyond that I'm completely unaware of my influence on artists as a musician, but when it is brought up it is quite humbling to me.” With a non-stop schedule like his, just completing a tour with Ringo and going on the road for his solo tour, I'm interested

on what is coming up for him. “I'm really excited to start working once again on a side project with The Roots,” he says. “There isn't really a schedule set up at this time. They are writing all the time and have a studio inside their rehearsal facility, inside NBC. They are recording tracks, but not always do they complete and turn them in. They will send me their recorded music and I will write a song over it, sing it and send it back to them. So we have four or five of those done and when it turns into a dozen, perhaps it will turn into a record.” With writing over so many years for both himself and other artists and countless songs in the catalog coming up with new and fresh ideas has to prove difficult but yet he continues to do it. Writing and inspiration go hand and hand. “Good question,” Rundgren says. “Funny, I get inspiration from all over, but lately I'm finding it has been coming from the music on television. What's playing in commercials and things like that. There are some pretty aggressive compositions out there grabbing your attention. Every once in a while I will ask my kids what they are listening to and that will start me off on a YouTube adventure that leads into some pretty inspiring stuff on the sidebar.” While we could go on forever and after the nerves had subsided so many questions kept popping into my head unfortunately time is short and we had to close this conversation up. What an honor this has been. To take Todd Rundgren off my bucket list is nothing short of amazing. Be sure to see Todd Rundgren at the Mahaffey Theater on February 14th when Todd takes the stage.

Sometimes a break is all it takes. Ben Burnley originally intended to step away from his role as frontman and namesake of Breaking Benjamin in order to address concerns regarding his health. While recuperating, the other members of the band authorized the release of a greatest hits compilation without Burnley’s consent. What began as a hiatus to mend himself degenerated into a five-year legal battle, as Ben Burnley sued to affirm his rights and creative control over the band as its founder. “Something unethical happened in my absence,” he said over the phone. “Justice prevailed and I have since been able to continue with what I started, with what’s mine.” Ben and I spoke briefly the day after his band had played at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Fl. Breaking Benjamin is currently on their 2016 tour, in which they will be headlining the debut voyage of the Axes and Anchors Cruise on February 20-24. They will also be performing in Orlando at Earthday Birthday on April 23rd. It will be the latest in a series of roadshows for Breaking Benjamin, since they reformed in late 2014. “The band, internally, was not what it should have been for many, many years,” Ben said of the group's original roster, “People should have bowed out

by Rem Fields

when they started to stagnate, but they didn't.” After his victory in court, Ben concentrated on “moving forward, cleaning house, and making a new album.” He set out to surround himself with the right musicians, turning to close friends and former collaborators. This revitalized version of Breaking Benjamin is a fivepiece featuring guitarists Jasen Rauch (RED) and Keith Wallen (Adelitas Way), bassist Aaron Bruch (Forever Ouvre), and Shaun Foist (Picture Me Broken) on drums. Ben continues to play rhythm guitar and provide lead vocals. Their first album together, Dark Before Dawn, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 within the week it was released. “Failure,” the record's first single, went on to top the rock-radio charts for eight consecutive weeks. Dark Before Dawn also marks the first time Ben Burnley was formally credited as a producer. “As far as I'm concerned, it's the same work I've done for any other album,” he said. “I didn't do too much different; there was just literally nobody else around to take the credit for it this time.” Ben Burnley, who is all too aware of how susceptible a project is to mismanagement, intends to avoid the mistakes that ensnared previous creative efforts.

His similar, but different approach when recording Dark Before Dawn reflects an emphasis on staying focused. Ben strives to preserve the cohesiveness of his group's ideas by limiting the number of hands involved in capturing them. Breaking Benjamin is able to stay truer to itself as a result. Between the strength of its current lineup, the lessons learned by its frontman, and the enthusiasm of both fans and the band alike, their most recent efforts appear to be the energetic beginnings of a second wind. Over the phone Ben sounds calm yet passionate. Comfortable with success, though still excited about writing new music even after over a decade of ups and downs. His eagerness bolsters his endeavors both inside and outside the studio. “Fans deserve a sincere performance, a collective experience,” he said. “It's not 'we're gonna play a show and you're gonna listen.' It's supposed to be a celebration.” While he'll be the first to admit that running a band is the same as a business, he disagrees with treating the music itself as a commodity. “It should feel more like a family than a product,” Ben said. “A band is about brotherhood, respect and bringing joy to people. Even if it's miserable music, it can make people happy. There's an emotional connection.” This connection forms the foundation of what brings Breaking Benjamin closer not only to fans, but also to each other as a group. “None of us, in any other endeavors that we've done, have enjoyed touring as we do now,” he said. “We're really stoked to just tour, tour, tour. I'm also excited to start writing collectively as a band. It is

something I've never really ever been able to do.” Breaking Benjamin is taking full advantage of its new beginning. At its core, the group very much sounds the same. It should, seeing as Ben had always been the band's primary songwriter. His sensibilities have always come across as practical, avoiding the temptation to convolute his music just because he can. “I don't like my ideas and my dreams being turned into a product. I like that it's shared because it's wanted, not forced,” he said. More importantly, he has noticed, audiences are latching onto this philosophy too. The success his band has met with since their return, he feels, marks the convergence between artists' and audiences' desire for something genuine. Ben attributes part of this to the rise of Internet culture. Fans are able to stay connected to artists in ways that weren't available when he started making music. It is one lesson he cannot emphasize enough to up-and-coming musicians, or really any creator out there. “Social media is an extremely powerful tool. Utilize the hell out of it now,” he implored. And he does. You can follow him on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Whether online or offline, live or through headphones, Ben Burnley gives 150%. Say what you will of Breaking Benjamin as a band – Ben, the artist, is actualizing his vision with sincerity and gusto. The sound he attentively creates is very much his, but he's more than happy to let everyone listen. “We do everything we can to give the best experience we can give,” he says. And I believe him.

Breaking Benjamin will be headlining the inaugural voyage of the Axes & Anchors Cruise, departing from Miami, February 20-24. They will also be performing at WJRR’s Earthday Birthday on April 23rd at the Central FL Fairgrounds in Orlando. Florida’s Largest Music/Entertainment Magazine Full Access Magazine

Being a guitarist for bands such as Cacophony, Megadeth, Tourniquet and releasing 22 albums, 12 of which are solo efforts, Marty Friedman’s resume is more than impressive. While establishing himself amongst the who's who of metal guitar players, his peers and fans alike can never get enough. He has exceeded a stereotypical label by combining multiple genres being influenced by styles covering the globe and using picking technique that is nothing short of jaw dropping. Originally from Laurel, Maryland, he has called Tokyo, Japan home since 2003 where he has reached celebrity status. Not only for his musical endeavors, but as a prominent television personality. I recently spoke with Friedman from his residence overseas about multiple topics including his upcoming shows in the “Sunshine State” and setting sail on the “Axes & Anchors” cruise from Miami to Key West and Nassau, Bahamas. With the aforementioned television career and being involved in all those albums he definitely finds time to share his abilities with an extensive touring schedule. Not slowing down despite being heavily active since 1981 makes me wonder how he

continues to do it day in and day out. “It's a weird thing, I have a ton of energy, but at the same time I'm a lazy bastard,” he says laughing. “I find that I would rather be exhausted. I just love playing music so much that I go beyond a normal amount of motivation and wind up without any free time. I would really like to relax, but the music takes so much precedence in my decision making process. I fill my plate with things that consume an extreme amount of time and energy, because I know the end result is that I'm going to get to play my music. It has been that way since I was 16 and it's not going to change anytime soon.” While spanning his career, to be involved in so many great projects, you have to wonder if there is one that holds his heart more than the rest. Marty says, “Not really, it is what ever is coming next. This is the biggest amount of interest that I've had in my solo music in my whole career. This is taking up most of my energy and effort. It really didn't look much more than a side project for the first seven or eight albums but now on my 12th album I'm getting noticed on Billboard, Rolling Stone and Grammy.com. Places that normally ignore my stuff have allowed me to expand my

touring schedule. It's been great to get attention for something I have done for so long, simply out of a labor of love.” Musicians and the fans he has accumulated over his career have always been more than aware of his efforts and can't wait for what is to come next. Now that he has gained even more notoriety, we visit the reason behind it. “I would like to believe that if you keep doing what you love to do, not concentrate on what's trendy at the time, and remain focused on that the best you can, at some point, it will find its way to the people and in turn will lead them to what you have done before as well,” Friedman says. Being an influential player himself, I am curious to find out where the influence in his life came from to propel him to this point of his career. “Good question,” he says. “I never had that big mentor type person, but I would have to say my parents. They have always supported my passion with honesty and kept me from doing anything stupid. They are very respectable people and I didn't want to let them down. I felt that if what I'm doing is ok in their eyes, than it is something to move forward with. I kept that in the back of my mind.” Knowing his passion and non-stop work ethic, you know he is always writing new material. So it is just a matter of time before we have the opportunity to pick up his next effort. “I have been blessed to tour in support of my “Inferno” album for a couple of years now. As a matter of fact, the show I will be playing in St. Petersburg, FL will mark the end of the tour which has taken me around the world a few times already. The day after the St. Petersburg show, I'm going to be doing the ‘Axes & Anchors’ cruise. You should be able to pick up a new album in the not so distant future. I already have the players lined up to start production on the next album as soon as we get back,” he says. The end of a long tour usually can't come

soon enough. This St. Petersburg show, marking the end, should bring added excitement along with a sense of relief. Marty explains, “It will definitely be a melancholy situation for me. I have enjoyed a successful tour, my biggest to date and I hate to see it end. The excitement level will be turned up, knowing this show will be closing out a great chapter in my life. I have no idea what insanity will come as a result.” Putting an exclamation point on the celebration will be his appearance on the first ever guitar-dominated music cruise. What a way to wrap things up. “I really don't know what to expect on the cruise,” Friedman says. “I have never been on a cruise before so I certainly haven't played on one. With the line up that is going to be there, I'm picturing a level of craziness that may just be immeasurable. I know the cruises are popular in America, but over here in Japan they don't do that. So for my band and myself, this should be very interesting.” While enduring a career with longevity such as he has had, you tend to get asked a ton of questions over the years. So I wanted to close out our conversation, not with a question, but by having him give us a closing statement. “I would love for more people to enjoy what it is I do. That is really the only thing that I care about. I'm glad that I have never had to compromise and been given free reign on what I do. I know that not everyone will enjoy my entire collection, it's impossible. I'm the sum of all my favorite music put together and I can only hope that who ever shows up to my party, can walk away enjoying at least something I have done,” Marty says in the most humblest of tones. If you are a fan of the guitar and you are not familiar with Marty Friedman then consider his music a must listen to. If you are already a fan of his, you can start to get excited, because another album is right around the corner.

Rock band Aranda was formed by Oklahoma City brothers Gabe and Dameon Aranda. The brothers have been playing music since they were kids and music has always been an important part of their lives. Full Access talked to them about their newest album, "Not The Same," and all things Aranda. We asked them what the pros and cons are of playing music with your brother and Gabe responded, "It's all pros now. I mean, it used to be a lot of pros and cons. Way back, I mean I can't remember the last time we really had any kind of altercation. We're just more grown up now. We were in this together. We love playing music together, we've realized that we're better together than apart, so we play on that quite a bit now." Aranda had been touring with Three Doors Down and Gage says,"That was our second tour with those guys and they really know how to treat people. They always treated us like we're an equal. We're not the opening 30-minute guys. Same with Daughtry, when we are out with him. He treats us the same way. They're just really good people and we have learned that no matter what, treat everyone with respect. Just respect people, love people, it doesn't matter where they're from, what they do, it can be from the garbage man to the guy that's paying your

bills. I don't care who it is, we're going to treat them the same way." The brothers have had some success being picked up by the WWE and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Gabe said, "The WWE thing, you know, we just got lucky with some of that stuff. I remember watching it on pay per view and I just remember I played it so many times, and we're just like, "This is freaking awesome!" This is great promotion. There is so many workings and stuff in the business and all that stuff, you kind of sometimes lose track. We have a manager and an agent because you literally cannot keep up with everything that goes on behind the scenes. A lot of times, we go, "Yes, we'll be there, just tell us where to go." Gabe tells us that some of the bands or artists that they would like to collaborate with are Shinedown, Alter Bridge and Vernon Reid from Living Colour. "Vernon Reid is an amazing guitarist," says Gabe. He says, "Were old souls, last year we got to do a thing with Living Colour and I don't know what it is about their music, but I just like pretty much every song, that they've ever done." Aranda will be on The Axes & Anchors Cruise leaving out of Miami on Feb 20th. Dameon says they are looking forward to

seeing all the other great guitarist like Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen and freaking Alex Skolnick! Gage says, "I want to go to Zakks clinic because they're so good. That would be fun for me. I'd be in heaven." Dameon said, "We've done the Shiprocked Cruise a couple of times and have just had a blast on that. I think the most appealing part of that is that you literally have a captive audience. You know that everybody is a lot more relaxed with their interaction with the bands, They don't feel like, "Oh my God, if I don't talk to them right now, I'm never going to get the chance." Dameon tells us their biggest musical accomplishment to date has been, “Longevity! Actually persevering through kind of the ups and downs.” Gabe says,"Yeah, having a third record has been pretty big for us. I mean, we take everything day by day. We don't know where we are going to be in two years, because we don't really know and so we're thankful for each day that we get to do this and we're going to keep continuing to try to do this. We know that we have some of the best fans in the world.

They're just loyal, They're awesome and we love them and we're just continuing to just try to do the best we can. We take it day by day, we don't look too far into the future anymore." Aranda's latest album titled, "Not The Same," is a little more eclectic and went back a little to their roots. They branch out and take their fans on a journey from where they had came from and who they really are as musicians and singers. Dameon says, “Stylistically, I think we brought back some of the stuff from our first album too. We did take a couple of older songs that we had done. Stuff that honestly dated back to our first record. So we took some of those things and shined them up a little bit because they were a little dated or whatever, but I had a different perspective by this time on the songs.” Check out their new album and keep up with Aranda on their facebook, twitter and other social media. Or you can go on the Axes & Anchors cruise, leaving out of Miami on Feb 20th, to see them and many other great guitarist and musicians. I am sure it will be worth it!

To make your mark and get noticed in the music industry it usually takes some kind of hook. People, get ready to be hooked on Lucy Angel. With a career spanning over the past 15 years this trio are starting to capture the hearts of America and beyond. By making this a family business with everyone focusing on making their hard work payoff and being able to keep their eye on the prize the dream has become a reality. Reality in their case includes a hit reality tv show called “Discovering Lucy Angel”. Their self-titled debut album is released under the family label, G-Force Music Group, LLC which is headed by the fathermanager Doug “G-Man” Anderton. If you think I was kidding about it being a family business think again. The son, Jake Anderton, works on the imaging of the group through photography, video and social media. Now to the beautiful ladies of Nashville, TN based Lucy Angel. The group consists of daughter Lindsay Anderton (Lead vocals), mother Kate Anderton (Mandolin, backing vocals) and daughter Emily Anderton (Guitar, backing vocals). If you know anything about me it's the fact that country music has never worked its way in to my favorite genres of music but that ended up with a little crack in my

foundation. One fateful night I seen these angels grace my tv screen. From the first time I had noticed them on their television show they captured my heart and it has been a love affair from there. Like their fan base, I have gone absolutely crazy over these ladies and they wouldn't want it any other way. As a matter of fact, they will make you “Crazy Too.” I caught up with Lucy Angel at a festival in Royal Oak, Michigan to discuss their music, the limo, family business and more. Being a musical group that's also family had an advantage over most. It seems that the hard to find chemistry is already built in. Kate says, “absolutely. I feel that this is the way it is supposed to be. I just feels right. Everyone has a part in it.” Emily adds, “We have reached a healthy place, where everybody feels completely comfortable and everyone can speak their minds which is crucial.” Lindsay says, “We honestly hang out together all the time so it adds to the work dynamic.” It is obvious that they have a great influence on each other. Outside influence usually plays a part in the shaping of a career as well but in this case not so far outside. Lindsay tells me that their father, G-Man, has been their biggest influence with his amazing support. Emily says, “he has instilled in us

to keep pushing forward and not to look back. That was how we were raised.” Kate says, “Other than G-Man I remember vividly going to a Huey Lewis concert and thinking to myself how much I want to be up there doing that.” Now turning it around, it has to feel great knowing that your out there influencing people with your gift. “It's pretty amazing and an honor when people let us know how we have inspired them. We have a large younger following at to know that we have touched the hearts of young girls and their mothers alike is very moving to us. They look at our mom and see that she raised us and now she is in a band with us and it shows that the bond of family is really important” says Emily. Kate adds, “It's kind of mind blowing when you look in to their faces and you see how people are reacting to us. To hear how they want to learn how to play an instrument because of us is incredible.” Lindsay goes on to say, “When we receive videos of young girls rocking out to our songs it inspires us in turn.” Watching over one season of their show it fast forwards what they had gone through in a much longer time frame. It takes a lot of thought and work finding your identity as a group. “It is a long process. You can't always do certain things because you want to. You have to adapt,” Kate says. Lindsay continues, “We had been writing for this record for over six months and “Crazy Too” had came at the end of that process right before we were going into the studio. It fit so well with everything that we had already chosen. At first we were heading in a more acoustic direction. While the acoustic influence is still their we changed direction a bit but we still wanted to really focus on the strong harmonies being a big part of our identity.” The tv show has really helped to catapult them closer to where they want to be. If you are like me a half hour at a time and just one season isn't enough. I want to see more of

the day to day of Lucy Angel. Lindsay says, “You are in luck then because there is going to be another season. Season two should be a little bit different but you will have to keep your eye out for it. I can't really talk about the details just yet.” If you have had the opportunity to see the show You have seen their infamous limo that is wrapped with a promo photo of the ladies. “If we are going to use that limo for the next season of the show we definitely need to change that wrap,” Kate says laughing What about a follow up to their debut album. I'm ready to learn new Lucy Angel songs to sing along to. “We have material in place and we have played a bigger part in the writing process this time. The plans are starting to come together on the next release,” Emily tells me. As the interview is unfortunately nearing the end I ask these stunning ladies to tell us something that they want the world to remember about them. Kate says, “We are three women who are determined to achieve our goals and continue to pursue or dream. Giving up is not an option.” Emily adds, “There is nothing in this world that we would rather be doing than what we are doing right now.” Lindsay says, “There is a whole more to come and we couldn't be more thankful for what we have, family, and thanks to all of you it is growing every day.” Emily jumps back in and says, “Go with your decisions because even the smallest choice can lead to so much more. Like when we decided to film that video in the cemetery for our YouTube channel. That's what led to us getting our reality show. So, you never know.” I can't remember having more laughs during an interview. It was truly a pleasure being able to spend time with these ladies. A couple of things I took away from this: One, the time went by way too fast and it's not just us, they are “Crazy Too.”

David Bowie Blackstar Columbia/RCA ggggf by Terry Canter

When David Bowie returned from a 10-year hiatus with 2013’s The Next Day, he could have sanded down the edges of one of the longest and most enigmatic careers in pop history. For a while, it almost seemed like that was what he was doing. The Next Day ruthlessly cannibalized his past, pooling styles and gestures from classic Bowie albums into a solidly mid-tempo simmer. He rehashed the cover of “Heroes” and stamped an ugly white square over his face with “The Next Day” printed in anemic sans serif in the middle. It was half a joke, half a nod to a trajectory that seemed to be finding its bookend. With 3 (pronounced Blackstar), his 26th studio album in almost 50 years, The Next Day looks more like the beginning of a brand new chapter. Though distinctly its own animal with desolate production and long-winded, lurching rhythms, 3 grows from seeds scattered throughout The Next Day. It’s tied to the stage show Lazarus, whose antagonist, Valentine, makes an appearance on TND single “Valentine’s Day” as a skulking killer steering Bowie from the shadows. The nervous drum work and perforated, layered vocals of “If You Can See Me” (not to mention its meta lyrics, which harken back to Bowie touchstones like “Changes”) set a template for what would become 3 — a soundly self-contained LP that subtly digests Bowie’s fragmented past. If classic Bowie works housed traces of melancholy inside robust and rhythmic art rock, 21st century Bowie lets his melancholy bleed unabashedly through his music’s outer membranes. 3 is a sad record, preoccupied with death and dying and the angst of being forgotten, but it 23

achieves its effect with the same detachment that has always marked Bowie as a public figure and as an artist. Bowie’s helped out here, as he has been for crates of records, by Tony Visconti, who sets a roster of jazz musicians in motion across an expansive environment. Most Bowie albums have adopted space as a backdrop, but 3 sounds like space, the echoes between instruments tracing wide swaths of emptiness, enhancing the isolation hinted at in the weighty but opaque lyrics. On other songs, he casts his frustration in sharper terms. “Where the fuck did Monday go?” he demands on the barbed “Girl Loves Me”, his voice cutting that classic Bowie yelp that’s been tapped by Win Butler and Spencer Krug and St. Vincent and too many more to name. Only, Bowie himself sounds more weathered now. He hits the notes, no problem, but he lets you hear the effort in them. His vocal talent has always been more willful than organic; the song “Heroes”, maybe his best, still hits its transcendent register not because of its structure or its polish, but because Bowie is willing to lose his shit while he’s singing it. 3 affects a similar vulnerability, letting you see the will in his performance, still saving room for danger after all these years. Bowie could never be said to reveal himself while still remaining Bowie, but 3‘s closing song brings a new vividness to his opacity. “I Can’t Give Everything Away” cements and defends his enigma, and does so atop one of the loveliest melodies he’s crafted in decades. He sings to the edge of his range, his vibrato rich and earthy. “Seeing more and feeling less/ Saying no but meaning yes/ This is all I ever meant/ That’s the message that I sent/ I can’t give everything away,” he insists against a stock synth pattern and drum beat, offset by paisley swirls of saxophone. It’s the simplest track on the record, and it comes from the most human place Bowie knows how to access. The song yearns for connection, but, Bowie

Full Access Magazine


being Bowie, connection only manifests at a distance. Get too close and you’ll break the spell. That’s the paradox he’s always carried. It would have been so easy for Bowie to make Next Day after Next Day, to satisfy the nostalgists with carefully measured Bowie rock. But Bowie has always been more of a pose than a sound, and to see him fall into complacency would disrupt his cultural standing more than any deviation from his formula. 3 is a battle cry against boredom, a wide-eyed drama set in a world just beyond our scopes. It doesn’t get more Bowie than that. Tortoise The Catastrophist Thrill Jockey 333tf by Terry Canter

Tortoise, the Chicago-based instrumental post-rock quintet, have spent the past 25 years and seven albums fusing dub, jazz, prog, and indie into an instantly recognizable and much-loved trademark sound. The Catastrophist is their first studio album in nearly seven years, and in their time away, Tortoise were commissioned by their hometown to create several suites of music inspired by its storied jazz and improvisational music scenes. Based on this new record, the experience must have been a pivotal one, as The Catastrophist bears a subtle yet marked style change for the band—from sprawling and loose to something more cohesive, but nonetheless experimental enough so as to not alienate their core fans. The enjoyability of The Catastrophist is in this leap of faith, the idea that no mold is beautiful enough to remain unbroken, even if its new shape may be foreign and strange. You cannot listen to this record as someone who is familiar with Tortoise's output and not be somewhat taken aback by at least one facet: vocals. The Catastrophist is Tortoise's

first album ever to prominently feature guest vocalists, and they chose wisely. Georgia Hubley of Yo La Tengo provides vocals to the distorted, laid-back soul ballad "Yonder Blue" which makes exquisite use of her soft, choirboy voice. A cover of British singer-songwriter David Essex's 1973 hit single "Rock On," which is a fairly weird classic rock oddity to begin with, enlists Todd Rittman, guitarist for fellow Chicagoans U.S. Maple, and his distorted, echo-y vocals make Tortoise's version sound even more languid and surreal than the original, like a Satanic call for teenagers to experience the forbidden pleasures of rock 'n' roll. When Rittman curls his tongue around "Still looking for that blue jean, baby queen/ Prettiest girl I ever seen," it definitely sounds more like a concrete threat than the plea of a disenchanted lover. The original song's staccato strings are replaced here by heavy synthesizers, and the result is a track that sounds both new and steeped in '70s and '80s gearhead synth-rock. It's clever and arresting, and illustrates perfectly what could be a very new direction in Tortoise's cannon. Some of their more conventional tracks may pale a little in comparison to their newer aesthetics, if only because their evolution has been so slow and protracted. The album's first single, "Gesceap," beings with dueling synthesizers that are then joined by the vast array of Tortoise's instrumental arsenal, until all that's left is a tornado of texture and sound. There's a lack of the slightly more rock-oriented, guitar-driven pieces the band became popular for (the urgency of their 1998 record TNT, for example, is absent), but it has been replaced by almost tongue-in-cheek flourishes in some places: "Gopher Island" clocks in at just over a minute and might seem like mid-album fodder, but multiple listens reveals it to be a weirdo bubble of retro experimental electronica, the sort of thing Throbbing Gristle or Fad Gadget would have knocked around the studio while feeding each other magic mushrooms.
