  • 'Superstorm' crafts narrative from Sandy's wrath Oct 21, 2014 5:45 AM
    It's been a weak hurricane season in the Atlantic so far, with little to worry U.S. coastal residents, but any forecaster will tell you: It only takes one storm to make a bad year. In 2012, that one storm was Superstorm Sandy, a hurricane that grew larger even as it lost its tropical characteristics and combined with an early winter storm and blast of arctic air. Kathryn Miles' “Superstorm” explores the human drama that unfolded in the storm's path from its late October genesis in the southwestern Caribbean through its terrifying landfall near Brigantine, New Jersey.

  • Flying Lotus moves deeper into the unknown Oct 21, 2014 6:00 AM

The song cycle plays like an expedition through alternate realms and dimensions.

  • Lecrae looks to break mold of a Christian rapper Oct 21, 2014 5:45 AM
    Lecrae is dubbed a Christian rapper, but he considers himself a rapper who happens to be Christian. The Grammy-winning artist is trying to avoid being boxed into one genre. “I didn’t really fit in either world,” said Lecrae, 34.

He believes this success could help bring him closer to being embraced by both gospel and mainstream music. He headlines Chicago's Aragon on Sunday, Oct. 26.

  • Jessie Ware cruises on sophomore album Oct 21, 2014 2:00 PM
    Jessie Ware’s “Tough Love” is lovely, and that’s not a tepid endorsement. No, the English singer’s sophomore disc is lovely in the way of a sunset or a cruise around the lazy river after a long day at the water park. The whole thing is a pleasure to enjoy.

    At the heart of this light, energetic tale of a group of wealthy eccentrics on holiday at a seaside resort in England emerges a story of a marriage. Yes, there’s a juicy scandal, snobbish comments and petty disagreements among people of a certain class. But “Murder at the Brightwell” by Ashley Weaver also proves to be an insightful look at a marriage that started with a strong, physical attraction and now has frayed because neither Amory Ames nor her husband, Milo, has figured out how to communicate.

The answer is she doesn’t need to do anything, but a dive into the realm of other divas is a solid move.
