This week we've seen Tupac Shakur return from beyond the grave. I've read too much of The Walking Dead to rest easy after that.
Jason Mraz has a happy place, John Lydon misses the point and we take a gander at some new releases too. With sexy results.
Releases reviewed: David Guetta and Nicki Minaj - Turn Me On (out now); Jack White - Love Interruption (from Blunderbuss, out now); Pulled Apart By Horses - Wolf Hands (out now); Holy Mountain - Gunner (from the mini-album Earth Measure, released 7th May).
*Musical note: the Scotch Snap technically consists of a stressed (ie on the beat) sixteenth note, or semiquaver, followed by a dotted eighth note or quaver. Usually dotted rythms have the longer note first; it is that reversal of expectation that makes the snap so distinctive. It is a key rhythmic signature of Scottish traditional music.
