En Música de Contrabando, revista diaria de música en Onda Regional de Murcia (OJO, vamos de 22,05 a 24,00h). Paul McCartney hizo historia en Glastonbury el pasado fin de semana. Pocos días después de cumplir 80 años volvió a dar una lección de absoluta clase y poderío sobre el escenario con un concierto que pasará a la historia de la música reciente. Deep Purple, primeros confirmados para el Rock Imperium 2023. Black Eyed Peas, pioneros de la fusión de géneros, regresan con un nuevo sencillo super ventas titulado "Don't You Worry" [con Shakira y David Guetta] . Jack Johnson lanza hoy su nuevo álbum, Meet The Moonlight, su 8º álbum de estudio , el primero en cinco años, producido por Blake Mills (aclamado multi-instrumentista y productor conocido por su trabajo con artistas como Alabama Shakes, Perfume Genius y Jim James). Lori Meyers ofrece en streaming y con un vídeo-lyrics “1000 Noches”, canción que está incluida en la Edición Deluxe del vinilo de su último álbum “Espacios Infinitos”. La nueva edición del Sunsetland Festival llega este viernes 1 de julio a Murcia, tras tener que ser pospuesta hasta en dos ocasiones por culpa de la pandemia (Morad). “Aroma”, lo nuevo de Sen Senra, es sin duda un suspiro de aire fresco. Una canción que aterriza aquel amor mágico que todos querríamos vivir. El cantante vigués huye de cualquier tipo de reproche y sátira, y se centra en realzar este estado de lucidez y goce, desprendiendo un aroma natural y limpio, sin añadidos artificiales. Lupe Fiasco publicó el viernes Drill music in zion, su nuevo disco.

Nueva versión de Starman, el clásico de David Bowie, que ha sido publicada para conmemorar el 50º aniversario de su inolvidable quinto álbum, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. Se trata de una versión que Bowie hizo para cumplir con las reglas de la Unión de Músicos vigentes en 1972, que establecían que, para aparecer en Top Of The Pops, todo artista debía re-grabar su canción cantando en directo. «Brian Wilson nos dio California como un paraíso y Jackson Browne nos trajo el paraíso perdido». La frase corresponde a Bruce Springsteen, y cambiamos a Browne por Fernando Rubio. "20th Century", una maravillosa joya de música elegante y bien elaborada , con más presencia de guitarras, entre confesiones y reivindicaciones; la madurez y una vida intensa proporcionan a su actual obra un juicio crítico, político y social; tierno, sentimental y comprometido con el mundo que le rodea, a la búsqueda de cambios positivos, Rubio, que nos trae un paraíso perdido, toma prestado el titulo del tren de 'Con la muerte en los talones'

What is art nouveau and how did it flourish around the turn of the 20th century? This aesthetic movement dominated many artistic fields in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was influenced by nature and used trademark organic shapes and sinuous lines, moving away from previous limits to create new kinds of design objects. Let's take a few minutes to reflect on where art nouveau came from, as well as its major themes and artists. Unlike many artistic waves, art nouveau didn't come from one particular artist or theory. Rather it marked a change in mentality, and a move away from traditional restrictive art forms. How did the movement start? What are the main characteristics of Art Nouveau works? Who are the main figures of the Art Nouveau movement? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions ! To listen to the last episodes, you can click here : What are subliminals? What is sadfishing?

James Kirchick on the 'Secret City': How Closeted Gay Men Shaped 20th Century Washington

Dear readers,Due to the holiday weekend, this week’s schedule for Very Serious is out of order. The podcast is out today, there will be a regular issue tomorrow, and a special Fire Island edition of the Mayonnaise Clinic will be coming on Friday.One striking fact about three-term New York mayor Ed Koch’s life in the closet — the subject of a recent New York Times feature — is that he stayed in the closet long after he could plausibly claim that he needed to.An openly gay man would not have been elected mayor of New York City in 1977; once in office, he would have had good reason to fear he would not have been re-elected had he come out. Politicians simply didn't do that at the time. But in retirement, Koch had no reputation to protect from the knowledge that he was gay. In fact, coming out probably would have earned him sympathetic news coverage and softened his image at a time when his record as mayor was often criticized for reasons related to race relations and the AIDS crisis — including the specific allegation that he shied away from leadership on AIDS for fear that association with a “gay issue” would fan the (true) rumors that he was gay.One theory the Times piece considers is that, after denying his sexuality for so many years in the face of detractors like Larry Kramer who wanted him outed, Koch felt coming out would be tantamount to letting them win. But if you lie about your sexuality long enough, it can simply become hard to tell the truth. A lot of people stay in the closet for expediency, but a lot of people stay there because of their own shame, and it’s sad.And it’s sad how common the need to hide was until not very long ago.This week’s episode of the Very Serious podcast is an interview with James Kirchick, author of the new book Secret City: The Hidden History of Gay Washington, which chronicles the powerful roles that gays (mostly gay men) played in our federal government from World War II through the Reagan administration. Just because gays couldn’t announce themselves didn't mean they weren't around — in fact, some of them arguably sublimated their sexual desires into drive that propelled them to the heights they achieved in American government.Jamie’s book describes the creation of the modern closet as an artifact of World War II, the Cold War, and the security state. Gays had long been considered disgusting, but with world war they came to be considered security threats, at risk of blackmail over their appalling secrets. As a concept, that this would be a risk makes intuitive sense, though Jamie notes the surprising difficulty American officials had when asked to identify any specific cases where gays in government were blackmailed over their sexual orientation. And besides, whatever security risk homosexuals posed was not really a product of their sexual orientation itself, but of the government’s and society’s reaction to their sexual orientation — if you let people freely admit they are gay, then there’s no shameful secret to threaten anyone over. Nonetheless, gays were vilified, investigated, and until 1995, prohibited from holding security clearances.Through the decades covered in Jamie’s book, allegations of homosexuality were wielded as political weapons — true allegations and also false ones. Jack Kemp, for example, was not gay, and he was definitely not part of a right-wing gay cabal that controlled Ronald Reagan. But that didn’t stop a cadre of Republican officials — many of them moderates — from pushing that fantastical narrative to reporters in an effort to block Reagan's nomination in 1980. That madcap story is the subject of an excerpt from Jamie’s book that you can read in Politico Magazine.The 1980s would bring in the AIDS crisis, and an aloof response to it from the Reagans, despite Nancy Reagan’s coterie of gays, ranging from her hairdresser to Merv Griffin. The AIDS crisis would also lead to the waning of the political closet as it had been established in the 1940s, with gay political figures forced out of it, often in death. The era also brought the first two openly gay congressmen who sought and attained re-election: Gerry Studds and Barney Frank, both from Massachusetts, and both far from the idealized image of a gay politician you might mold on the basis of a focus group.I encourage you to listen to the podcast and, if it intrigues you, read the book. It's dishy and full of odd stories like the one about Reagan and the alleged secret right-wing gay cabal; and of correctives to wrong things you’ve likely heard about figures such as J. Edgar Hoover, who probably was not actually a cross-dresser. The story as a whole is sad and maddening — Jamie has, for example, handwritten edits to Ronald Reagan’s draft statement about Rock Hudson’s death, removing all reference to the closeness of Hudson’s relationship to Ronald and Nancy — but also very interesting, and well worth your time.Very seriously,JoshP.S.
