Calvin Harris's new
album leaks classic
techno dance tunes
By MELINA GLUSAC
DailyArts Writer
If anyone's the king of
dance-y dub, it's the enigmatic,
gruffly-voiced
DJ Calvin
Harris. Radio
listeners know Motion
him from that Calvin Harris
inescapable,
unexpected Columbia
hit "Feel So
Close" and,
more recently, "Summer." These
pleasant, .harmless techno
grooves are exactly what Harris
brings on his newest release
of happy-go-lucky club jams,
Motion. So the album lives up
to expectations - but it doesn't
exceed them.
Tunes like "Summer" and
"Under Control" have already
peaked on the U.K. and
U.S. charts. The beautifully
atmospheric "Slow Acid" was
also previously released prior to
the album. These songs are not
necessarily the strongest on the
album, but they've lived up to
their hit potential. "Pray to God,"
Harris's killer collaboration with'
the bad-ass, all-female rock-pop
group HAIM, could also be a
smash; its fusion of great beats,
cool synths and guitar build-
up a la Stevie Nicks's "Edge of
Seventeen" leaves the listener

wanting more.
The only rap on the album,
"Open Wide" with Big Sean,
is stellar - Sean's witty, laid-
back, cocky lyrics blend well
with Harris's perfect techno
accompaniment. This isn't the
case with the other collabs,
though, and the ones with
the most hype tend to fall the
flattest. "Outside," featuring
Ellie Goulding, is blissfully
unoriginal - a formulaic track
laced with Goulding's signature
soulful-whispery-mouse-on-
crack vocals. The strength of
the synths and the epic-ness of
the drop overpower Goulding
by miles. A track like this needs
someone like Mariah Carey to
power through the excess.
So many of Motion's songs
plummet into the depths of
familiarity, the signature-
Calvin-Harris, typical-EDM
hole. "Together," featuring Gwen
Stefani, doesn't deviate from the
norm at all - it's repetitive and
difficult to separate from ditties
like "Faith" and "Love Now."
Harris doesn't allow Gwen a
chance to show her punky flavor
at all. Instead, she's trapped
behind a"dub"blegum pop
number with a melody so simple
Britney Spears could sing it just
as effectively. No doubt there.
The album hits a sultry,
intimate spot for a few minutes
with "Ecstasy." This track,
unmatched by any others, is a
ballad etched with spotless lead
vocals and soft techno insertions
that don't get overwhelming.
Harris has the listener on the

edge of their seat, basking in the
initially jarring, gentle light of
the song and wondering if a drop
is ever going to come. It doesn't
(thank goodness). When it comes
to music, the benefits of straying
from the status quo are infinite;
Harris should've included more
of this inventiveness.
"Blame" with John Newman
is decent, once again steered
by the power of a strong male
vocalist. Newman's soul is
undeniable and the song shines
a little bit more than the others
because of it. Other tracks -
"It Was You" - fade into the
electronic dust.
Of the three all-instrumental,
no vocal tracks, "Slow Acid" is
the darkest, most futuristic and
strongest. It weaves and takes
some unexpected melodic turns,
unlike "Burnin" (with R3hab)
and "Overdrive" (with Ummet
Ozcan), which are unendingly
boring.
The biggest upset is Harris
and newcomer Tinashe's "Dollar
Signs," another characteristic
jam. The listener yearns for
something great, something to
match the effortlessly fly vibes
of Tinashe's first hit, "2 On." But
"Dollar Signs" is so confused,
complete with a huge, hardcore
drop that mismatches Tinashe's
cutesy, chill vocals in the verses.
All of it - all of Motion -
is current. There are dollar
signs in Calvin Harris' future.
But he shouldn't be under the
impression that he's acquiring
that green from being good. It's
all just catchy shit.

coat should I wear today, my

season, especially when it comes
to jewelry. Classic concepts reign
supreme this season, but that
still leaves room for expressing
individuality.
In a quest to find the perfect
set of fall jewelry, I looked no
further than Neiman Marcus at
Somerset Collection in Troy, MI.
I interviewed Kristina Bazzi, a
jewelry consultant of Neiman
Marcus, who shared the hottest
trends for fall jewelry.
It's nearly impossible to walk
into a jewelry carrier without
seeing a vast selection of symbolic
jewelry. Ranging from Hamsas
to four-leaf clovers, the current
trend caters to all.
Brands such as Alex and Ani
offer more affordable examples
of symbolic jewelry, including a
vast selection of their signature,
adjustablebraceletsandnecklaces
in both silver and gold. Sydney
Evan is a pricier option, but
includes a more varied selection
with beaded pieces and jeweled
charms.
"Wehave symbolic jewelrylike
the evil eye, that is huge, and it's
been huge since 2011," Bazzi said.
"A lot of people use it because they
like what it symbolizes, which is
protection. So it became more of a
fashion statement now."
Obviously, doting emblems

but for this season, Bazzi gave us

This city is undoubtedly home
to a huge population of uniquely
talented individuals and an above-
average population of brilliant
people. We're consistently atthe
tops of "Smartest Cities inthe
US" lists, and for good reason.
We're a hard-working collection
of high-functioning students and
professionals, and the truth is, a lot
of that focus necessary for ahigh-
stress life can probably be chalked
up to that little browncup of bit-
terness so many ofus drink every
morning. I wouldn't make it to
many of my morning classes with-
out alittlehelp from myKeurig.
This isn't to saythat our ability to
study atsuch a great university is
reliant on a java addiction, but it's
definitely helpful.
The average coffee-drinking
American drinks three cups a day,
which equals 21cups a week and
more than 1,000 cups in a 365-day
year. Add in the fact thatthe aver-
age resident of downtownAnn
Arbor is either a high-functioning
student or a hard-working pro-
fessional, and you're guzzling
down above-average cups a day.
Ann Arbor has a coffee culture so
deeply rooted thatthese figures
aren't so surprising, butthey raise
a serious question: How does the
human race keep up this habitthat
depletes so many of the world's
resources?
The world (and us Ann
Arborites) doesn't need to kick the
coffee habit, we just need to start
making better choices in where
we put our money. A great way
to do this, and an option plenti-
ful in Ann Arbor coffee shops, is
choosing fair trade: the process of
businesses justly compensating
farmers and workers in develop-
ing countries instead of exploit-
ing them for profit as many large
corporations do. These businesses
work directly with the farmers
who grow the cropsthey will use
and sell, ensuringthatthey're
grown sustainably and organi-
cally. Fair trade is, in a way, the
epitome of anti-capitalism: the
workers at the bottom of the
production chain are paid fairly
for their contribution to the busi-
ness, instead of being dragged in
the dust by the bigwigs at the top.
While this entire process can seem
so far from our daily routines
and our simple need for a shot of
espresso, it's importantto realize

the power we can have all the way
in Ann Arbor just by choosingsus-
tainable options.
While it's not practical to inter-
rogate your local barista about the
facts of where their coffee beans
are grown and how much the
farmers are paid per shipment, it's
not so difficult to do your research
about which of your favorite coffee
shops use fair trade ingredients.
Fair trade options are plentiful in
Ann Arbor, as long as you know
where to look. Businesses who
utilize fairtrade are usually proud
of this fact and promote it when
possible, since it's aprettyawe-
some business strategy:you'll reel
in people who consider themselves
environmentally friendly and
sustainable, and the people who
could care less won't think less of
your shopbecause of it. Espresso
Royale buys their coffee from
"Crop-to-Cup," an importer that
buys organic beans directly from
farmers in developingcountries,
and reward them with fair pay for
practicing environmentally sus-
tainable practices. Smaller shops
like Elixir Vitae Coffee and Tea
have fair trade options if you ask.
The options are there if you know
where to work, and the whole
process is a win-win situation,
win-win-win if you think about
the workers who benefit from fair
wages.
Coffee isn't a luxury for many
people. It's a necessity. Coffee
fuels our work, our successes
and keeps us functioning for our
8 a.m.'s as well as our nights out
with friends. Coffee drives our
educations, our artistic endeavors
and, occasionally, our failures. For
a beverage so present in our lives,
we mightas well make choices in
our purchasing histories that may
have little difference for ourselves,
but could greatly change the well-
being of someone working in agri-
culture a world away. Fair trade is
the building block for buildingup
poor communities, startingwith
families, then communities and
then finding the power to change
entire populations for the better.
It's a small step, but every one of
us has the power to help a commu-
nity just by our pre-class choice of
where to pick up a latte.
