  • Brandy – “Magic” (Coldplay Cover)

    Word to Cat Power: Chris Martin’s songs can often sound better when people other than Chris Martin cover them. The R&B lifer Brandy is apparently some kind of Coldplay megafan. Her 2004 Timbaland-produced song “Should I Go” sampled “Clocks,” and that was back in the era when it was novel for rap and R&B types [...]

  • Coldplay: Ghost Stories review a very palatable wallow

    Chris Martin may be hurting, but Coldplay's sixth studio album defaults to their plush trademark tones of yearning and succour

    Those are angel wings on the cover of Coldplay's sixth studio album, etched by the London-based Czech artist Míla Fürstová.
