From KCRW Blog Contributor Nassir Nassirzadeh:

Three and a half years removed from LCD Soundsystem’s final show at Madison Square Garden (immortalized in the film Shut Up And Play The Hits), Pat …

GA and Jason

These days especially, people seem to have a wide range of feelings about Kanye West, based on a life that bounces  from musical genius to celeb tabloid magnet and everything in between.
With his most recently album “Yeezus” he took his musical experimentation to the next level but, before that, there was “808s & Heartbreak”. His 4th studio album was conceived in the wake of …
