Artist: Lena Hall Title: “Obsessed: Radiohead” Label: Ghostlight Records Release Date: 6/1/2018 Genre: Rock Rating:
I’m continuing my examination of the series of cover EP’s by Tony Award winning musician Lena Hall with her latest offering of “Obsessed: Radiohead”, an album that finds the sonic vocalist offering up homage to the legendary Alternative Rock band by giving us her take on a handful of their numbers. My own relationship with the band Radiohead came very early in the bands debut as a newly signed band to a label I knew some people at way back when and upon inquiring what this one was all about, I was told “we think the song CREEP will be a big hit”. It was of course, and the band went on to their own levels of stratospheric popularity. Sorry, I just had to add that one into the mix but back to the latest tunes from Miss Hall.

I’ve been keeping as good a pace with singer Lena Hall as she continues to deliver EP’s under her “Obsessed” series and if you haven’t seen our thoughts on what’s come before you can just click HERE to be brought up to speed. “Nude” is the first single of Hall’s latest “Obsession” which focuses on the band Radiohead and while I plan on doing a longer overview when its released, felt it would be fun to do some Single Reviews here on “The Chronicles” as well. As a music fan I was only listening to Radiohead up until the “OK Computer” album so by the time they released “In Rainbows” where this song comes from, I was long gone. According to my research, it was the bands second single from this release and a very big hit. Continue reading “Nude” (Single) by Lena Hall→
It seems like only yesterday that we were heading over to Williamsburg for the 1st Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo which was a brand-new event started by our friends over at High River Sauces. That was six years ago and while the first couple of events were discussed on my PiercingMetal.com website, I’ve been keeping them here as a part of the Lifestyle vibe that you get with “The Chronicles” for the last few years.
With this being the sixth such expo for me, I will admit that its gotten a little tricky in how to deliver the fun to your device of choice so I am just going to walk around and see what I see and snap what I snap. The links at the bottom will take you to a number of vendors and their wares. Let’s go.
Artist: Lena Hall Title: “Obsessed: Peter Gabriel” Label: Ghostlight Records Release Date: 2/2/2018 Genre: Rock Rating: 4.5/5
Last month offered up an overview of a brand-new musical EP series by Tony Award winning singer Lena Hall with her “Obsessed: Hedwig and the Angry Inch”. It was the first in her series of “Obsessed” released which pretty much amount to artists or material that she herself is obsessed with. I loved the idea and as a fan of Hall’s for a number of years was glad to support this effort. Folks who missed that summary can click HERE to check it out. While I was relatively new to those songs, her latest EP focuses on the legendary Peter Gabriel, an artist that I am much more familiar with so let’s discuss “Obsessed: Peter Gabriel”.

Hello again my friends and welcome back to the photo visuals from the 2018 Progressive New York Boat Show. I’m continuing with this event and using it as a bit of a closer of my last few days in the Javits Center. Since it was days ago that I offered up the first chapter, I’ll ask you to click HERE for the first installment before continuing. Though its been rather hectic, I greatly enjoyed exploring this and the New York Times Travel Show and BroadwayCon as well. Each of those events can be viewed by clicking their names. Now let’s get back into the exploring.
