Melodic Contrasts

Adele vs. Beyoncé. Traditional vs Experimental. Unifier vs. Controversial.

The two famous Pop divas hold most of the nominations for the 2017 Grammy awards, despite their apparently opposite styles.

Adele's success is based on her appealing traditionalism. Her music acts as a unifier, making songs for kids and grandparents, pop obsessives and pop skeptics", reports The Atlantic. 

Beyoncé by contrast has lately been on a politically charged experimental kick, riling up what’s left of the American monoculture via racially conscious performances at the Super Bowl.

[OP-ED]: Is this “The Wall” Mr. Trump is talking about?

 10/25/2016 - 16:16

Call it “The Impossible Wall.” 

We saw it with our own eyes this past weekend, and it was hard to believe.

“The Wall,” in our mind, is the one we see occasionally on TV, or, more frequently, the one built in the popular imagination by politicians who keep talking about it. But this imaginary wall has nothing to do with the real one you see once you get there and touch it with your own hands.
