The English rock band Everything Everything announced that their upcoming album Raw Data Feel was written with the assistance of artificial intelligence software. You can hear the results in the first single, “Bad Friday.” I actually think it’s pretty good. But who gets the publishing royalties?

    In this issue: Ken Sander has to learn stage lighting – on the spot. Ken Kessler keeps his reel-to-reel tapes spotless, and Adrian Wu keeps his reel-to-reel deck maintained. J.I. Agnew checks out the rare and remarkable L.J. Scully LS-76 record-cutting lathe. Tim Riley reviews rocker Lenny Kaye’s new book, Lightning Striking. I talk about the latest release from Octave Records, Audiophile Masters, Volume IV. Ray Chelstowski interviews the great Duke Robillard about his new album, They Called It Rhythm And Blues. Tom Gibbs has a polished piece on the importance of clean connections.

    John Seetoo begins a series on audio’s Grammy-winning power couple, Jim Anderson and Ulrike Schwarz. The Mindful Melophile Don Kaplan has an all singing! Some talking! A little dancing! review of noteworthy classical and other recordings. Russ Welton concludes his in-depth examination of Spinorama loudspeaker measurement. Rudy Radelic covers the career of Brazilian music pioneers Luiz Eça and Tamba Trio. Andy Schaub offers another audiophile song parody with “Nelson Pass Blues.” B. Jan gets traction in his pilgrimage to Sturgis. Anne E. Johnson says yes to the Big Apple avant-punk of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the melodic touch of classic composer Alessandro Stradella. The issue concludes with a store with limited choices, buyer’s remorse, 45 degrees of separation, and a good image.
