    One danger of artistic longevity is repetition. Then there's the problem of self-parody. In the case of U2, a band with 13 documented and doted-upon studio albums across 34 years, how does an artist deliver surprise instead of lapsing into well-worn...

    Friday Coda: Grampa and Grandmaster Flash, U2, Neil Young's mermaid
    This week was consumed by a few monolithic brands, one musical, one technological. Puppets teamed with singers. Singer cited puppets. A legend fell. A new music site arrives with promise. Grandma unintentionally shouted-out Grandmaster Flash. Below are...

    Kevin Hunt: Rocki Play, A $49 Streamer, Brings Music From Smartphone To Speakers
    For a colorful little music streamer with 17 sides (at last count) and a bust-out Kickstarter funding campaign, the Rocki Play isn't that complicated. It streams music from a smartphone, tablet or computer to a traditional speaker system, just like a...
