Mayor McModern

How Mick Cornett handles the challenges of modernizing a city in a rustic state will determine his legacy.


Commentary

Keith Gaddie
Any Oklahoman who ever flew on Delta knows Bill Hartsfield. The airport in Atlanta exists because of Hartsfield, who as a councilman aggressively promoted aviation. As mayor, he was first and foremost a booster of innovations and of Atlanta business.

Oklahoma City’s choices


Commentary

Chance Hunter
Oklahoma City was built for cars. Like many young cities in this part of the country, its growth sprawled out across a grid of major streets intersecting every mile, overlaid by a wider grid of in-town highways. Most trips take just 10 or 20 minutes even if they take almost as many miles.

VOTD: Warning: This video may induce vomiting

Watch a dizzying new Matodon clip.

Mastodon’s “The Hunter” comes out Sept. 27 on Reprise Records and the band’s done all the marketing it needs in the form of the ridiculously awesome titles it’s given each one of the album’s 13 tracks (15 on the deluxe edition!).

Here’s “Curl of the Burl,” which, if you’re unaccustomed to spinning and zooming through forests in unpredictable directions, might make you vomit.



The video’s a little boring, but thanks to it, we get to hear a new Mastodon song. I don’t like it quite as much as the first single, “Deathbound,” whose video also blows this one away. In fact, you probably just ought to watch it again.

Balkans — Balkans

Buzzy, noisy Atlanta band shows promise, guitar chops.


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Musically, I’m a sucker for many things. Chief among them is anything related to post-punk and garage rock. Bloc Party was my off-ramp from Linkin Park, while No Age and Wavves have dominated my total plays on iTunes for about two years now.

Big Boi — Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper and one-half the legendary duo Outkast, Big Boi has released his new solo project, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. It’s far from a typical hip-hop album; every song has a different feel to it, sometimes even stepping outside of the genre.

T.I. — Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper T.I. has released Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, his eighth studio album and the first since his most recent stint in prison. The title is no doubt a reference to his legal troubles on federal weapons charges, but it also makes reference to the Marvin Gaye song of the same name, which is sampled in the album’s opening track.

Counterpoint: Streetcar budget defies reality


Commentary

Nancy K. Anderson
Now that the 4.5-mile downtown route for the MAPS 3 streetcar — Phase 1 — has been decided, the challenge will be to get it completed at a cost anywhere near the amount budgeted. The experience in other cities indicates it will cost far more to build — and to keep it running — than we’ve been told.
