Spotlight/ Shoutout: Matthew Morrison


Hello Wednesday, this week’s spotlight/ shoutout goes to Matthew Morrison, a Broadway performer, who has made his name known in the world of television as well. On the smokin’ stage he’s done musicals such as “Footloose” (His big break.), “South Pacific,” and even “Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

But the reason Matthew Morrison earns this week’s golden s/s is because of his new work on the show “Glee.” This show looks like it’s going to be a hit. It has already generated an enormous fan base, and the season has just started. I don’t know if it will make as far as something like the original “90210,” with ten seasons (I didn’t watch any of them), but I hope “Glee” stays around for awhile.

Seriously, the show is great. It’s almost like a way to reinvent the musical by having all their cool performance numbers and interesting storylines. Also, Mattie Morrison’s character, is married to Jesalyn Gilsig from “Boston Public” and “Nip/Tuck.”

Awesome!!

QATFYG: Do you watch Glee? Are you a musical fan? And how long will Glee last?

  2. I've wondered, where has he been in the TV world? He just has the look and the personality that a lot of tv shows try to create for a "teacher" role.

    I'm thinking Glee might last at least 4 seasons...because it's set in a high school. of course shows always find ways to pull things out longer...................i.e.....save by the bell: college years.

  3. I haven't gotten around to watching Glee--it looks good, but I'm not much of a "watch TV on TV" person. Maybe when it comes out on DVD...

  4. Glee will last a while. It has a decent concept; however, it just another attempt at following the musical fad. The show will only last a couple of seasons. It will end just like this crazy hysteria for musicals set in high school.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
