the music that sustains us

AT THE END OF LAST FEBRUARY, just before the world shut down, Bad Bunny stopped by the ROLLING STONE offices to play some tracks from his new album, YHLQMDLG. The music was jubilant and daring, pushing reggaeton in radical, genre-defying new directions. Even the title, an acronym for Yo Hago Lo Que Me Da La Gana, or “I do whatever I want,” seemed to announce that 2020 was going to be a boundary-toppling year for pop music. Of course, by the time YHLQMDLG had reached 1 billion streams (and Bad Bunny appeared on our cover, wearing a mask) in the spring, the world was a different place. The ways artists made music and the ways we listened changed with it. Music became more solitary, more intimate; discovering new music and revisiting…

love letters & advice

“My heart cannot take this. I have grown up to Paul and the Beatles, and have loved Taylor since her debut album. It’s about time!”—Amanda Rallis, via Facebook Musicians Ask the Questions For our December issue, 10 different pairs of artists came together to talk craft and share stories [“Musicians on Musicians,” RS 1346]. For several, this meant finally being able to chat with the person behind the music that influenced them most. The results were just as fun for the artists to share as they were for us to read. Taylor Swift tweeted, “It only took one day to confirm what I had suspected for years: Paul McCartney is the loveliest person alive.” Summer Walker got to talk with her longtime inspiration Erykah Badu. Afterward, Badu tweeted at Walker, “You are…

JOSH KISZKA was watching an ice cube rise and fall in his drink at 2 a.m. at Hollywood’s Sunset Marquis hotel last year when he came up with the lyrics for a new Greta Van Fleet song. The movements of the ice made him think of a favorite philosopher, the late theologist Alan Watts, who described human existence as an ebb and flow. “That’s what I saw in the ice cube,” says Kiszka, 24. “That’s what ‘Ah Sri Rama Jayam Ram’ is about,” he continues, quoting the mantra in “Trip the Light Fantastic,” from the band’s second album, The Battle at Garden’s Gate, due out April 16th. “Self-liberation, or this idea of letting go, or transcending. Is there an afterlife? I think I would rather cease to exist. Your body goes…

bedroom musicians bring it all back home

Mirror Sound Prestel, $40 “IT’S NOT THAT the recording studio got smaller,” Carrie Brownstein writes in the foreword to Spencer Tweedy’s Mirror Sound. “It’s that the bedroom became bigger.” Tweedy (whose father is Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy) collaborated with designer Lawrence Azerrad and photographer Daniel Topete on the new coffee-table book exploring indie musicians’ home-recording spaces — a timely theme when so much of the music world is stuck in place. “It comes across in how at ease the artists were when we were visiting them,” Tweedy says. “They felt like they were at home, because they literally were.” THIS SPREAD: IMAGES FROM “MIRROR SOUND: THE PEOPLE AND PROCESSES BEHIND SELF-RECORDED MUSIC,” BY SPENCER TWEEDY AND LAWRENCE AZERRAD, PHOTOGRAPHED BY DANIEL TOPETE…

TV MINISERIES 1. WandaVision In this trippy-looking Avengers spinoff, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their MCU roles — only now, the superheroes are shacked up in suburbia. ALBUM 2. Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Good News’ Megan’s long-awaited debut album is every bit as audacious as we had hoped, whether she’s demanding justice for Breonna Taylor or celebrating her own magisterial ass. PODCAST 3. ‘The Lydian Spin’ Punk provocateur Lydia Lunch teams up with her Retrovirus bassist Tim Dahl to interview friends and pop-culture luminaries from Margaret Cho to David Amram, offering dark humor — and an uncanny ability to get people to open up. DOCUMENTARY 4. ‘The Dissident’ Jamal Khashoggi’s gruesome 2018 murder shocked the world, but the circumstances of the Saudi journalist’s death are far more complicated than headlines indicated. Director Bryan Fogel offers a chilling look at how far…

Will things really change once Biden takes office? I’m skeptical. He strikes me as just another politician controlled by corporate interests. Please, convince me I’m wrong. —Dan Dennis, Tulsa, OK All politicians are, to some degree or another, compromised. They all have flaws. But here’s the story about Biden. He’s a decent guy. He’s paid a lot of really serious dues. Nobody should have to go through losing a kid, and he has. It turned him into a better human being because hard times in your life teach you things. Yes, he’s a politician, but he has humanity and compassion. I don’t generally trust most politicians, but I do trust him to be who he is. I think he’s going to do a good job. I can’t get it up at 64.
