Bill Ewald's take on pop culture.

Monday, February 11, 2013

One of the best albums of 2012 that didn’t make the Grammys’ cut was Metric’s “Synthetica.” Its best song is “Youth Without Youth,” driven by pounding drum and fuzzy bass guitar rhythms over harmonious waves of vocal intensity that build to a relentless crescendo. Another album fronted by a woman is Little Jackie’s “The Stoop,” which came out in 2008 and is still fresh today. Best cut is “28 Butts” a hip-hop delight seasoned with lush melodic soul riffs. * * * Check out “The Following” on Fox, 9 p.m. Mondays for over-the-top serial killings, that, in just the first three episodes, total more than all the murders shown on “CSI” and “Criminal Minds” during their entire seasons. Actor Kevin plays a former FBI agent who hunts down followers of a serial killer played by James Purefo.
