And yet, for all that the format's commercial viability may or may not be on the wane, sitting and listening to a great album from start to finish is one of the greatest pleasures that music can bring. Flavorwire recently got to thinking about how one might build a record collection if you really only did buy one record a year. So here's the result of our thought exercise: 50 albums you really should own, one a year from 1963 until the present day. Yes, of course this mean things [...]

It's an outing that brings them to The Phoenix in Toronto on September 12, and that leg of the tour also includes support from Marnie Stern , who herself released [...]

Jama Ko , the new album by Bassekou Kouyate , is currently ranked #2,809 on Amazon's music sales chart. That's a respectable achievement for a Malian musician, but I'm rooting for it to become a true crossover hit along the lines of King Sunny Adé's Juju Music and Ali Farke Touré's Talking Timbuktu . Most of the plentiful rave reviews of Jama Ko - an album as stunning as it is enjoyable- emphasize the project's awful backstory. Here's a typical analysis. Knowledge of the terribly disturbing Malian [...]

Following the release of the single, "Q.U.E.E.N" off the upcoming album, The Electric Lady , Janelle Monáe has created a work of art in the official music video for the as-to-be-expected funky track. Set in a museum where statuesque musicians, singers, and dancers alike are brought to life by music (WOAH, deep) and heavy on the black, white, and red accents, "Q.U.E.EN" becomes a visual jam as well as an auditory one. And of course, Janelle Monáe dons her signature suit and tie complete with tassels, fringe, and Johnny Bravo 'do. Watch out for Erykah Badu who is [...]
