  • Best of CMJ 2014: our 11 favorite acts

    Bo Ningen @ BV CMJ 2014 (via @brooklynvegan instagram)

    CMJ 2014 is now just a fading handstamp on our inner wrist (and maybe a slight ring in our ears). We've posted photos from our various parties and other shows we caught but we thought, before we put the fest to bed entirely, we'd pick our favorite performers from the week. This year, it just ended up that many of the bands we were looking forward to (and often had play our shows for that reason) were the ones who wowed us the most.

  • saxophonist Raphael Ravenscroft ("Baker Street"), RIP

    Raphael Ravenscroft, the man behind the saxophone on Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street," died earlier this week, of an apparent heart attack. He was 60. Arguably the most famous saxophone riff in pop (you know it even if you think you don't), "Baker Street" was a #2 hit in 1978 and Ravenscroft was reportedly only paid £27 for it (and the check bounced). Ravenscroft has also played on records by Pink Floyd, Daft Punk, America, Kim Carnes, Mike Oldfield, Robert Plant, and others.

    Rest in peace, Raphael. You "Baker Street" solo lives on. Stream it below...
