First Listen: Faith No More, 'Sol Invictus'

My Drunk Music Festival in South Beach Part 1
It was also a pretty remarkable feeling to be reminded that I was on the clock, technically working. Rather than sit at an office, however, my desk was a lawn chair next to a pleasant man covered in tattoos who was doing cocaine in public. Choppa Dunks ...

Two more of your delightful notes that revisit summers past, an occasional feature we're running throughout the summer. I grew up on one of the last remaining farms in the Dundee area in the 1980s. My sister, brother and I were bound within the milelong stretch between Randall Road and Tyrrell Road, because it was too dangerous to ride bikes any farther. The most glorious days were when my mom didn't quip, "Only boring people get bored," and would drive us to spend the afternoon with friends at the Sleepy Hollow Pool. The downside is that I have many freckles from the days basking in the sun atop the corn crib and that it moved slowly enough that I counted the days till I got my driver's license and could have some real freedom. Every once in a while, the wistful part of me wishes my kids could have that farm experience, but then I recall your column that said, "My kids don't need to live my childhood. " And I'm thankful for finding the kind of neighborhood where kids play ghost in the graveyard past dark, ride bikes to the 7-Eleven for ice cream, and everyone watches out for one another. My wonder years were the late '50s through early '60s. Our parents gave us the greatest summer gift a kid could get: freedom.
From a music fan's point of view, was there any real need for Faith No More to get back together after nearly 20 years away. The band's cast of eclectic rock 'n' roll innovators had a good run, yielding six albums, several of which qualify as classics. Faith No More's primary members moved on and branched out, too, and seemed perfectly fine with it. Keyboardist Roddy Bottum co-founded the affable indie-pop band Imperial Teen. Drummer Mike Bordin had a solid gig as drummer in Ozzy Osbourne 's band. Singer Mike Patton, meanwhile, has metamorphosed from that strange guy in Faith No More and Mr. Bungle into an experimental-music renaissance man. Faith No More's 2009 reunion was a delight for many, but its members — who included Jon Hudson, reprising his late-'90s role as guitarist — were inevitably smart enough not to overstay their welcome. If they were to make new music, the challenge would be to bring the same ambition and fire that fueled 1989's breakthrough The Real Thing , 1992's daring Angel Dust and 1997's swan song Album Of The Year. What makes Sol Invictus , Faith No More's first album in 18 years, so extraordinary is not only how comfortably it fits into the band's discography, but also how economical it is. So many veteran bands overcompensate on record, but Sol.
I’ve gone through grueling basketball games and practices, I’ve experienced 17-hour filming days on set, and I’ve had my fair share of 40-hour party binges. Because last week was Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival in Miami, an event that hosts hundreds of concerts, panels, and parties, and brings in every notable figure in the electronic music landscape, and I experienced all of it. As a... I knew that WMC would offer an array of content that I could turn into fun, enticing pieces. As an individual, I was excited to attend some awesome parties and mingle with interesting people, since WMC always features a who’s who of EDM personnel. As an artist (yes, I rap as well ), I was excited to learn from the many informative panels and interactive exhibits. In hindsight, I think I did a good job at accomplishing everything I set forth to do. I attended countless parties, met some incredible people, gained valuable knowledge, and may or may not have had a couple hundred shots of tequila along the way. Yet, rather than feel successful, the reward for my “victorious” week is a two-day hangover, about 14 extra pounds, and a strange new heart murmur. WMC got underway on Tuesday. After attending a couple interesting panels, I made my way over to the pool area where my friend Choppa Dunks was DJing at the WMC opening pool party. As I lay by the pool, listening to some excellent.
