Touching, tender, ribald, raunchy, innovative, annoying: there are many pleasures in David Hockney’s Tate Britain retrospective, but just as many exasperations. The earliest work, in an exhibition that spans more than 60 years of Hockney’s art, is buried among a large display of the artist’s drawings. A spare, perspicacious little self-portrait, it has the 17-year-old Bradford School of Art tyro, already owlish in his glasses, fiddling with his tie. Butter, you think, wouldn’t melt. By 1960, fresh from National Service and the Royal College of Art, he was drawing a boy with the word Queen on his jacket, just so you know. And here’s a young man wearing a peaked cap, the words “Fuck You Cunt” hovering over his head like a shouted insult. With their mix of intimacy and distance, observation and a lively, though often reserved, touch, Hockney’s drawings are always worth one’s time. They have a sensitivity his paintings have for a long … [Read more...] about David Hockney review – 60 years of sex, sun and seismic shocks

Google released version 79 of its Chrome web browser last week, but a bug is causing serious problems because it's seemingly wiping the data some Android apps use. As Android Police reports, the bug impacts apps that rely on Android's WebView, which allows web content to be accessed and displayed from within an app. In order for this to work, some data is stored locally, but with Chrome 79 the location of the storage was changed. This required local data to be migrated to the new location, and that's where the failure lies. The data migration didn't happen properly, so apps are left unable to function properly. The good news is the data isn't being deleted as it still exists in the old location. Google now needs to figure out the best way to movie it, and to do so quickly, but until a fix is in place the rollout of Chrome 79 has been paused.

You can hardly have failed to notice that rock music has recently become obsessed with the past. It has been ever thus - there was a 1950s revival in the early 1970s - but what marks out the current wave of musical grave-robbers is their desire to dig from the most obscure corners of rock history. With the standard classic influences exhausted by Britpop, artists are turning to genres previously considered beyond the pale. Goth is topping the charts, courtesy of Evanescence. There are unconfirmed rumours of a revival of psychobilly, the preposterous 1980s hybrid of punk and rock'n'roll. And there is a resurgence of interest in punk-funk. A defiantly odd movement that emerged in early 1980s Britain, punk-funk featured bands called things like Josef K and Gang of Four engaging in frantic efforts to fuse distorted new-wave guitars, disco's relentless beat and avant-garde explorations of modern jazz. Punk-funk bands had a penchant for charity shop suits, the 1930s short-back-and-sides, … [Read more...] about The Rapture: Echoes

Font size:A-|A+11 It sounds so powerful that it echos around hills and valleys. It requires strong, soulful voices whose combination resembles an echo resounding in a forest. The multipart Horehronie (i.e. Upper-Hron region) way of singing can often be heard in Slovak folk songs.It is so unique that it has been recently inscribed on the UNESCO world cultural heritage list.“This style has been developing for centuries, since the era of colonisation of the region of the Upper Hron river, Horehronie, in the 14th century,“ Jaroslav Bodnárik of the folklore ensemble Kráľova Hoľa explains. “Natural conditions impacted it, as well as the herdsmanic way of life and the confession." Horehronie singing has several variations, depending on the village it is sung in – be it Telgárt or Vernár.Read also:Read also:Multipart singing of Horehronie inscribed on UNESCO list Read more Bodnárik has been devoted to this type of singing since he … [Read more...] about Horehronie singing inscribed in UNESCO.
