Fresh writing

smell

 

With the new year comes my annual update (they really ought to be semi-annual but hey, I got stuff going on) of links to recent writing. Much of the work that I’m proudest of (e.g., big retrospective pieces on Leonard Cohen, Siouxsie & The Banshees, the New York Dolls, Sly Stone and more) is in the print version of Uncut magazine and its Ultimate Music Guide series. I like my recent reviews in Sight & Sound too. So find them on your nearest newsstand, should your city happen to still have one of those!

Also be pleased to get a great meaty piece in Variety about the TIFF Short Cuts program that occupies much of my focus these days.
