Trodding the Boards May 17, 2022

Given that, as I write this, the last four weeks have included Easter, French Quarter Fest and Jazzfest, local stages have been relatively quiet. With things now back to normal (or what passes for normal here), the boards have lit up with a variety of shows all over town including the West Bank and North Shore.

Fabels’ “Minds”

A NoHo Arts music review of Fabels’ “Minds” album. Fabels’ “Minds” is utterly original. A blend of music and words and sounds and language, all vivid and cinematic and timeless.

The Untold Truth Of Bjork

It's difficult to describe or categorize Bjork. Emerging in the 1980s as the energetic, devilishly-angelic voiced lead singer of the experimental but danceable Icelandic alternative rock band the Sugarcubes, Bjork became a singular cultural voice in the 1990s and new millennium, blending electronic sounds and traditional instrumentation with folk, mythology, and storytelling to craft a unique style of captivating and sometimes baffling performance art. Add in her wildly original fashions (including wearing a "swan dress" to the Academy Awards) and memorable videos for singles like "Human Behaviour," "It's Oh So Quiet," "Army of Me," "Bachelorette," and "All is Full of Love," and Bjork is nothing short of a dazzling force of nature and artistic momentum.
