The best sign of Marshall’s progress to know, to see where she’s come, may be in the music herself. This is just her playing, but this is the most deeply layered and intricate music of her career. You can feel lessons learned from the players on You Are Free and The Greatest and elsewhere, and those lessons give her the confidence to shift from the gauzy guitars of “Cherokee” to skronky blues of “Silent Machine” to ambient electro-pop of the title track to bright blippy keyboard sweetness of “Manhattan”.

The concert film Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapest ‘86 is to be screened in various movie theaters around the world. The film will be preceded by a brief documentary, and the concert film itself will include stellar Queen hits such as “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, “We Are the Champions”, and “I Want to Break Free”. It’s Freddie Mercury and mates in front of 80,000 fans! Shall it be missed?

For me, St. Germain’s 2000 album Tourist was one of several memorable electronic albums that were released near the turn of the millennium. Each unique in their own right, I count Tosca’s Suzuki, a project from Richard Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber, and, a couple of years later, Jazzanova’s In Between as albums that stand alongside Tourist. But that’s neither here nor there since the excitement now is for the rerelease of Tourist for 2012, remastered for compact disc, vinyl and also available digitally. PopMatters is excited to offer our readers a chance to win this widely praised Blue Note record. Or if you want to know its yours, you can purchase the remastered version of Tourist from Amazon here. Read on to find out how to enter this contest.
