HAIM Cover Leonard Cohen for New Hanukkah Album

Published

on


Verve Forecast has announced a new compilation to celebrate Hanukkah. The record, produced by Randall Poster and titled Hanukkah+, comes out digitally on November 22. (Hanukkah begins one month later this year, on the night of Sunday, December 22.) The album features new songs and covers from the Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo, Jack Black, Holy Ghost!’s Alex Frankel, and more. It also finds HAIM covering Leonard Cohen’s “If It Be Your Will.” Check out the tracklist, as well as Cohen’s original, below.

Hanukkah+ was inspired by Yo La Tengo’s annual Hanukkah concerts, according to a press release. The band said in a statement:

When our old friend Randy Poster asked us to contribute to an album of
Hanukkah songs he was putting together, we were kind of stumped. As
non-practicing Jews (and non-Jews), truthfully the holiday has little
meaning for us (that’s the meta joke behind Yo La Tengo’s Hanukkah
shows), but we were open to inspiration. We thought maybe another
friend, Sam Elwitt, could crack the code, and we think he did a
fantastic job with his composition “Eight Candles.”

Like Yo La Tengo, HAIM love to celebrate Hanukkah. They’ve crafted a special Hanukkah song in the past and also sold t-shirts for the holiday.

Hanukkah+:

01 Jack Black: “Oh Hanukkah”
02 Adam Green: “Dreidels of Fire”
03 Yo La Tengo: “Eight Candles”

Watch Solange’s Daily Show Interview, When I Get Home Director’s Cut

Published

By


Solange has shared a full extended director’s cut of her film When I Get Home. The director’s cut had previously premiered at museums, and now, it’s up on YouTube. Watch it below. Solange also appeared as a guest on last night’s episode of The Daily Show With Trevor Noah for a rare televised interview.

When asked about her approach to creating the album, Solange responded, “I think so much of my work is about world making.” She discussed how she tries to “create cities on stage” and talks about wanting to “create work that I wanted to see when I was a girl.” She also talked the importance of reflecting the American experience through black cowboys. She also discussed the influence of the black women who visited her mother’s hair salon, a church camp she attended when she was young, and Kelis. Noah ended the interview by calling the album a “masterpiece.” Watch the interview here.

See where Solange landed on Pitchfork’s list of the best albums of the 2010s. Read “How Solange and Mitski Reconsider Who Can Be the Cowboy” and Pitchfork’s interview with Solange’s When I Get Home collaborators Terence Nance, John Key, and John Carroll Kirby.

Melania Trump Thinks Greta Thunberg Had POTUS Attack Coming

Published

Earlier this week, Donald Trump, who is very busy and important, took some time out of his schedule to attack a 16-year-old girl. Responding to the news that Swedish activist Greta Thunberg had been named Time magazine’s person of the year, the president, like the bridge troll he is, took to Twitter and ranted: “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”

While the notion of Trump going after someone on Twitter is nothing new—in the past he has slandered everyone from NFL players to the cast of Morning Joe to Bette Midler to Saturday Night Live—some people noted the irony of the attack given that Melania Trump recently went off the deep end after a legal scholar referenced Barron Trump in passing to make a point about the power of the presidency. Also, y’know, her alleged campaign against online bullying, the uniquely named “Be Best.” Does FLOTUS still care about the issue? Would she take to her account to admonish her husband? According to a statement from her press secretary, not exactly!

In other words, people who mention Barron’s name in passing should be “ashamed” of themselves because he’s a minor, but because Thunberg has chosen to speak up re: climate change she is fair game and should not expect a minimum level of decorum from the president of the United States. In related news, at least one former FLOTUS had a different take on the situation:
