REVIEW: Saul Williams — “Volcanic Sunlight” (Columbia)


@saulwilliams If The Inevitable Rise & Liberation Of Niggy Tardust was Saul Williams’ Purple Rain, then Volcanic Sunlight is his Around The World In A Day. Recorded in his new home in Paris, Williams teams with producer Renaud Letang, to create a sprawling, experimental and joyfully tense album. But make no mistake: times may be […]

The Q&A: Saul Williams


All photos by Andrew Gura First, congrats on Volcanic Sunlight. It’s a fantastic album. Tell us: Who’s this Saul Williams we encounter on this album versus, say, the Saul Williams we saw on Niggy Tardust? This is Saul Williams (it’s me…typing). I confess: it was me who wrote Volcanic Sunlight. I did not use a […]

VIDEO: Saul Williams — "Explain My Heart"


…first impression: Two thumbs up! What I like is the mature sound I hear. The album is crafted and that’s in no way a bad thing. Lots to like here. This video follows the one for “Dance,” which was released in May. In the meantime, here’s the video which, like the album, was created in […]

LISTENING POST: Saul Williams — "Dance" (Director’s Cut)


…lliams New music from poet, actor and musician Saul William from his forthcoming album Volcanic Sunlight. I see it’s available digitally in France, but am not clear on the Stateside street date. Maybe next week, if Wikipedia’s to be believed. Anyway, for this track, he channels a New Orleans voodoo, speakeasy kinda vibe. Dope. Can’t […]

Best of 2007: Game Rebellion, Apollo Heights, Skindred, Saul Williams, Kenna, Earl Greyhound + a bunch more!

What’s cool about this is that I’m getting turned onto a lot of other bands that are outside of NYC.  This goes to my hypothesis from the first BoldasLIVE that there are LOTS of Black rock bands out there (actually, I said there were probably thousands).  So, you’ve probably surmised that this will be a […]

Listening Post: Saul Williams–"Raised To Be Lowered"

"Was I raised/to be lowered?" What a great question.  Actually, this is one of my favorite tracks from Saul's 2007 album, "The Inevitable Rise & Liberation of Niggy Tardust".  The album was produced by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, so there's definitely a more industrial vibe.  Anyway, I realized I'd never put this up […]

I hear there will be some tweaks along the way, but this what I understand to be the basic–and pretty in-depth–schedule for this year's Afro-punk Festival.  The music portion takes place July 4-6 and again on the 12.  There's  a film and skate portion that takes place July 3-8.  Overall, looks like a killer lineup.
