Jeff Buckley Covers Sly and the Family Stone’s ‘Everyday People’ in a New Posthumous Covers Album

12 November 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jeff Buckley likely never intended to be remembered as a cover artist, but that is the legacy the late singer, who died in 1997 with just one album to his name, has left behind. And it'll continue into 2016: NPR reports that another posthumous Buckley album, You and I, is set to be released next March, this one featuring mostly covers he recorded as reference tracks to give his producers a sense of the sound he was after for his debut album. It'll include his take on Led Zeppelin's "Night Flight," Bob Dylan's "Just Like a Woman," the Smiths' "I Know It's Over" and "The Boy With the Thorn in His Side," and others, as well as two original songs. NPR also has a first listen of his cover of Sly and the Family Stone's 1968 classic anthem for equality "Everyday People," which Buckley has pared down considerably. Like »

Run the Jewels and TV on the Radio Devoured Colbert’s Late Show Stage

16 September 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Stephen Colbert's Late Show musical guests have so far included Kendrick Lamar, Toby Keith, Paul Simon (a.k.a. Troubled Waters), and everyone you know covering Sly and the Family Stone's "Everyday People." Add Run the Jewels and TV on the Radio to that impressive list, who joined forces last night to tear through Rtj's towering "Angel Duster." It was so mind-numbingly good that Colbert felt compelled to run backstage and throw up the pistol and fist with Killer Mike and El-p, as you do. »

‘Rubble Kings’ explores the explosion of NYC gang culture and the birth of Hip-Hop

Rubble Kings

Directed by Shan Nicholson

USA, 2010

Draped in graffiti, a rickety old subway train makes its way across a rugged slice of New York that looks more like Mad Max than Mad Men. Only seconds into director Shan Nicholson’s documentary Rubble Kings, the audience understands that the residents on display in the film’s South Bronx ghettos live in a place that barely qualifies as America. The Bronx in the early seventies was a ruthless kingdom, where the only laws that mattered were those imposed by the hoodlums that claimed your block. Rubble Kings takes a look at the rise of New York City’s gang life in the early seventies while also making the case that the emergence of hip-hop played a large role in New York gang culture’s decline.

The bar across Broadway between 113th and 114th Streets, the West End, was supposedly famous. Or at least the orientation materials had seemed to consider it an important part of Columbia history because it had been a hangout for literary figures, some of them Columbia men, though he had not yet read anything by any of them. Of more interest to Walter, there was jazz there. In passing by one Saturday afternoon on the way to Citibank, he'd seen a sign boasting that the Louis Armstrong All Stars were playing.

That night, he walked the half block south from his dorm to the West End. Inside there was a huge semi-oval bar in the center of the room. Following the sound of music, he found »
