TITANS IS A DARKER VERSION OF SINGER’S ORIGINAL X-MEN
Already more than halfway through its first season, the DC Universe streaming series is proving to be problematic at best, and at worst a badly written super-hero adaptation.
ROCK’S NOT DEAD — YOU ARE!
AUSSIE ROCKERS LIVE UP TO THEIR NAME WITH “BEFORE YOU” & NEW EPONYMOUS EP!
It’s time to break from the past and move forward.
This week, my mother passed away at age 84 joining my father whose demise came at exactly the same age, 8 years ago. Which gives me fair notice to think about the important things in life to pursue.
One of these things is this website. Music has changed so fundamentally that I feel that reviewing music is almost pointless.
So that aspect of Power of Pop will probably disappear as I focus more on films, books, comics and pop culture, in effect to turn this into an actual blog. Change is a-coming, folks.
Thanks once more for your support.
It is such a rush when a singer-songwriter-musician nails his colours to prog rock in this day and age! In fact, Durkee is proud to describe his music as “a blend of progressive, metal/rock, doom metal, post-hardcore, and post-rock.” A brave man!
Bill Lloyd returns with a smart new album that will appeal to the PoP Faithful with its sophisticated take on Power Pop Rock N Roll.
Lost within the hype, attention and brouhaha over the 50th anniversary re-issue of The Beatles “White Album”, is First Collection 2006 – 2009, a retrospective on the early Fleet Foxes recordings.
After the success of last year’s Sgt Pepper remix reissue, this 50th anniversary edition of my favourite Beatles album was the one to look out for!
Hard rock revival? I fuckin’ hope so! Add another band to the burgeoning list – Ontario’s The Castor Troys.
Seattle new wave revivalists Spirit Award are back with a new album, Muted Crowd.
Are you still basking in the Bohemian Rhapsody afterglow? If so, I would recommend that you check out the official Spotify playlist for Queen.
It’s impossible to be objective about Bohemian Rhapsody as I have been a Queen fan since 1977.
As some of you might be aware, I have somewhat distanced myself from the Singapore music scene (such as it is) recently but felt the need to check out Another Indie Gig last night at LiveAMP.
Aussie indie pop starlet San Mei returns with a new EP, Heaven.
The Rachets (Ashbury Park, NJ) sound like a cross between The Clash, The ‘Mats and The Hold Steady. Which is fine with me!
There’s no doubt that Warner Bros/DC has been lagging behind Marvel Studios in bringing successful adaptations of their properties to the big screen.
On the final night of the inaugural Scream Asia Film Festival, horror fans were treated to the melancholy aspects of supernatural tropes with the short film Hana and feature They Who Are Not Seen.
I think I am almost giving up totally on reviews of new music altogether. After all, one can just simply listen to the music, what’s the point of detailed description of the music? Seriously!
Director Yuki Kumagai combined his love for pop idols, quirky detectives and zombies to come up with his delightful horror-comedy Tokyo Living Dead Idol.
One is never sure about a Lars Von Trier film as the auteur is able to deliver genius and self-indulgence (are they mutually exclusive?), sometimes in the same movie. This certainly applies to Von Trier’s latest opus – the psychological horror that is The House That Jack Built.
Apart from Daredevil and perhaps The Punisher, the quality of Marvel TV-Netflix series has been mixed. The first season of Jessica Jones only succeeded because of its engaging villain, Killgrave (played by David Tennent) while season 2 was decidedly inferior.
