This Week's Picks: Warhols go grunge, Scott's neo-soul poetry, Green in all his legendary glory
Sunday, June 10, 2012


The Dandy Warhols The Dandy Warhols The Dandy Warhols The Dandy Warhols
Warhols go grunge: For The Dandy Warhols' eighth studio album in 18 years, the group returned to its studio The Odditorium to craft an intentionally stripped down, guitar centric direction. In other words, fans of its Velvet Underground/David Bowie-influenced days probably won't be as immediately drawn in to tunes on "This Machine," but there's no denying Courtney Taylor-Taylor's contagious songwriting or the rhythm section's grungy confidence, which is sure to translate to the stage.

Jill Scott Jill Scott Jill Scott Jill Scott
Scott's neo-soul poetry: One of the most vivacious neo-soul singers of all time is without a doubt Jill Scott, who alongside poetry and acting credits, makes her one of the most versatile stars of the past decade. Besides seeing the sultry singer at her "Summer Block Party," be sure to show up early for smooth crooner Kem and legendary rapper Doug E. Fresh.

Al Green Al Green Al Green Al Green
Green in all his legendary glory: Some know him as one of the soul's most ambitious innovators in history and others consider him to be one of gospel music's greatest messengers. Chances are both sides of Al Green's ultra-smooth personality will appear as he dives deep into both genres' annals to unveil "Let's Stay Together," "Love and Happiness" and "I'm Still In Love With You."
