Gabe's Review

Lawrence’s account of the punk-turned-funk era of New York music is endearing and over-the-top ridiculous. From the proto-house and electro of the Bronx to the New-Waves grooves of the Lower East Side, Lawrence creates intimate portraits of the many people who have used music as a social salve. Perfect for anyone who has found love to the rhythm of a 4/4 beat. - Gabe

Barry has put together a complex (and very funny) historical account of the different ways famous musicians have imagined the future of music. Whether it is sci-fi written by classical composers or experimental soundtracks to imagined utopias, Barry writes with such vivid detail and passion that it makes one imagine that the future of music will be bright. - Gabe

In a brisk hundred pages, Gladstone elucidates the inherent problem at the heart of the current American sociopolitical sphere. In an age of “fake news”, social media noise, and a complete disregard for moral decency, the author investigates how we construct “reality” in contemporary society. Gladstone offers a serious yet optimistic perspective on reality in crisis. - Gabe
