MOULIN ROUGE!, JAGGED LITTLE PILL, TINA - THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL, GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY, SING STREET. Five of the 10 original musicals to come to Broadway during the 2019-20 season are generally described as 'jukebox musicals' (more on why I have my reservations about calling the last one a jukebox musical later). For some, this subgenre of the modern musical is a blight on the legacies of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Jerry Herman, Stephen Sondheim, and every other legend who has brought original songs to stage.

Cory Becker's debut album, ONE, came to life in a one-room studio in the dirt floored basement of his Echo Park rental, which he built from ground up. The album embraces the authenticity and experimentation of analog recording - engineering and producing the album himself, he experimented with a variety of techniques and performed nearly every aspect of the album himself, aside from select musical guests he invited to play on select tracks. Despite being Becker's first try at recording and producing everything on his own, he was able to create a unique sonic footprint that encompasses modern indie rock and folk, and the values and traditions of the canon of American roots music. ONE is out now on all streaming platforms.

French singer, songwriter, actress SOKO has announced the upcoming release of her third full-length album, titled Feel Feelings, on June 12 via Because / Babycat Records. Paired with the announcement, the artist - and César-nominated actress - released a new song and video titled 'Are You A Magician?' directed by Gia Coppola. The visuals see SOKO magically bringing a stuffed animal to life and creating a picture-perfect life with her new companion only to have her creation ghost her. The song deals with the projection of one's fantasies of the perfect relationship onto someone you barely know, and of course, the disillusion of the harsh reality that comes with it.
