Steven Sourman reviews Riot Radio’s favourite records

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome back Steven Sourman: the beige face of backwards looking music journalism. I say, these Riot Radio fellows obviously have some doubts about their own music taste because they have asked for my expert advice on some of their favourite albums. I notice there’s no Prince amongst them so it looks like I’m in for a rough ride. Still, what do you expect from a bunch of people that refuse to fear modern music like the not-as-good-as-vintage-jazz juggernaut that it is? Anyway let’s have a look at these “albums” they have asked me to review (I say “album”, but Dark Side Of The Moon is an album – I doubt any of these could be synced in a non-ironic way with a Judy Garland movie): Best Coast – Crazy For You Hahaha, Riot Radio. You are joking with this one, surely? This sounds vaguely like any … Read more

The State of Modern Music Part One by Steven Sourman

Introducing our newest contributor: Steven Sourman.

Thank you very much for having me on the site. Not sure about the pink, best keep my bottom to the wall when visiting the Riot Radio office in future, if you know what I mean. I see you’ve also got a link to those “MP3” things above too – good for you, they may even catch on, you never know. Now, music.
