Talking Taste: Alex Crabb 06/12/15
Buoyed by enthusiastic word of mouth, Alexander Crabb's avant-garde, tasting-menu-only cuisine has risen to the top of the ranks. This year the accolades continue with Crabb nominated for 2015 James Beard Best Chef/Northeast award.
Active Child 06/18/15
Pat Grossi, the harpist with the sultry falsetto who records as Active Child, combines ambient R&B with a post-dubstep beat to create a seductive hazy electro-pop landscape Pitchfork describes as “at once rather humble and astronomically huge.” Low Roar opens
Talking Taste: Michael Pagliarini 06/19/15
At Cambridge Italiam gem Giulia, chef and co-owner Michael Pagliarini makes seven pastas daily from scratch on a twelve-foot custom-built pasta table that at night is set for dinner. The former executive chef of Via Matta, and his wife Pamela Raston, opened Giulia in 2012. Giulia's dedication to 'true Italian vigor and charm,' and a menu that evolves seasonally, have established Pagliarini as one of Boston's most lauded chefs and earned him a nomination for the 2015 James Beard Best Chef/Northeast award.
Talking Taste: Michael Scelfo 06/26/15
Even the dish descriptions on Harvard Square newcomer Alden & Harlow's menu have cheek and personality - see the 'Ubiquitous Kale Salad' and the infamous 'Secret Burger,' made with their 8 oz house Creekstone grind, a house-made roll, and your faith. The modern American menu, designed by chef and owner Michael Scelfo, features bold and inventive items such as coffee roasted golden beets, pork fat friend almonds, charred swordfish belly with apple, and bok choy kim chi.
First Friday: Party in the ICA 07/03/15
Celebrate Independence Day at the ICA!
Wavelengths: Martha Wainwright/ The Zs 07/10/15
From following in the footsteps of her acclaimed musical parents to lauching her career singing backup for older brother Rufus, folk seems to be singer/songwriter Martha Wainwright's birthright. The Z's, named 'one of the strongest avant-garde bands in New York' by the the New York Times, combine disparate elements: progressive jazz, minimalism, no wave, musical abstraction, prog rock, lengthy repetition, and unpredictability.
Wavelengths: How to Dress Well 07/17/15
From his debut 2010 album Love Remains, dubbed 'the biggest breakthrough in home-recorded-lo-fi in years,' by Pitchfork, Tom Krell's project How to Dress Well has provided audiences with an energetic mix of electronic pot and R&B.
The Secret in Their Eyes 07/23/15
Unpredictable, rich with symbolism, and mesmerizingly acted, this Best Foreign Film Oscar-winner directed by José Campanella lives up to its reputation. A retired court investigator hoping to find closure for a long unresolved homicide case—and for his unreciprocated love with his superior—both of which still haunt him decades later, decides to write a novel, reopening buried history and emotion. Primarily a thriller, the film also captures love in many different stages: young love that is passionately fulfilled, unconsummated love, and various forms of love in close friendships. With unconscious parts that are mysterious to others and to ourselves, there are many secrets in all of our eyes. Argentina, 2009, 129 min.
Wavelengths: !!! (DJ Set) 07/24/15
!!! was named after the click sound of the Khoisan language that, when written down, was signified by an exclamation point; while most commonly pronounced as “chk chk chk,” the band says any monosyllabic sound repeated three times will do. The Sacramento based dance-punk band’s sound ranges from quirky indie rock to funky electronica, both infused with high energy, heavy bass, and an art-disco vibe. As the Guardian says, they are “positively raring with the joys of sproingy bass, synthesized squelches, and stubborn, repetitive beats” sure to propel you to the dance floor.
Wavelengths: Pico Picante / Otto Von Schirach 07/31/15
DJ duo Pajaritos describes Picó Picante as a “non-stop dance party driven by global music influences.” Curated by 2015 Foster Prize winner Ricardo De Lima, the Boston-based monthly party features DJs from across the country and dance music from Latin house to tropical bass, to Moombahton and electronica. Otto Von Schirach, the self-titled “King of the Bermuda Triangle” grew up in Little Havana, Miami, surrounded by Miami bass, Cuban tropic music, Afro-Cuban noise, gangsta rap—and a White Magic–practicing grandmother. These musical and supernatural influences come through in unhinged and chaotic songs that merge dubstep, 80s dance music, grind, noise, psychobilly, garage rock, and tropical calypso: Pitchfork called one track “a fevered hallucination,” another “just the right mix of mutilated party anthem and breakneck cut/paste lunacy.”
First Fridays: White Hot 08/07/15
Get out to the waterfront in your summer whites and enjoy some oysters on the half shell.
Wavelengths: Lisa Hannigan + Aaron Dessner + Lucius 08/14/15
With her soulful, mystical vocals, delicate instrumentals played on vintage instruments, and self-knit album artwork, Lisa Hannigan has perfected a quirky musical ambience. She appears at the ICA with the National guitarist (and Wavelengths co-curator) Aaron Dessner. Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the retro-fabulous lead singers of indie-pop quintet Lucius, met at Boston's Berklee School of Music. One part 60s girl group, one part endearing alternative Americana, and one part hyper-stylized indie-rock, Lucius is the 'the missing link between Arcade Fire and Haim,' says The Guardian.
Wavelengths: Mykki Blanco 08/21/15
Mykki Blanco is a genre-bending, gender-bending, rapper known to feature spoken word by original riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna. With a punk hip-hop act that merges electronic music, rap, noise, and performance art, Blanco has worked with collaborators from British electronic dance music duo Basement Jaxx, to experimental hip-hop groups Death Grips, to Bjork.
Wavelengths: Kingdom 08/28/15
Brooklyn-born, Los Angeles-based DJ, producer, and label CEO Kingdom (a.k.a. Ezra Rubin) has been climbing the electronic music ranks with futuristic hybrids that merge mainstream and underground, resulting in mercurial, tightly produced, and irrestiable tracks.
