    One of the most exciting new comics out there isn’t exactly “new,” historically speaking, and it isn’t being brought to you by a brash upstart enamored with the freedoms of the modern comics industry. And if you haven’t added it to your “pull list” yet, may I suggest that you include Water Simonson’s Ragnarok from IDW very, very soon. The story so far: a great evil has taken over the world. It is the age past myth. Both the good and not so good have been put into compromised positions and, in one moment, both find themselves in a great chamber…

    Drum Machine – XOXX Composer from Axel Bluhme on Vimeo. Can you design a drum machine that does more than simply hide its workings inside an invisible box? XOXX Composer does just that. A project by Axel Bluhme, it turns the inner functions of sampling, looping, and sequencing, into tangible, kinetic, sculptural form. Wheels turn. Magnets trigger sounds. And in what looks like the love child of a 606 and a player piano, you get a mechanical take on patterned sound.

    Pop Punk band Real Friends were the opening act for band All Time Low just the night before, playing to over 12 thousand people, but now they are playing to probably just over one hundred people. This is probably something they are more used to but none the less they owned the show. This was the first time the band played in Birmingham, causing the crowd to erupt in cheers when lead singer Dan Lambton asked who had seen them elsewhere before showing their fans had travelled to see them perform before.

    28 Mar 2015 | 9:29 am
    As Washington, D.C. indie rock outfit Mittenfields know, it’s hard to be remembered. To be fair, it always has been. But we live in a time of unprecedented access to other people’s creative work; it’s never before been so easy to move on to the next thing. It’s never been so tempting to forget, in order to make room for the next. For artists, naturally, that’s an anxiety-inducing thought. That anxiety, and no small amount of anger, color the songs on Optimists, the debut LP from Mittenfields. But the songs in this collection of raucous shoegaze and noise pop are both memorable and…

    Whether indie Hollywood likes it or not, superhero movies generate big dollars for studios, and through “trickle-down financing”, allow for smaller films that don’t make as much money to get made.  Now, it’s not as if small films are without merit.  The opposite is true.  The artistic quality of indie films outweighs large tentpole blockbusters substantially, and to say otherwise is completely absurd.  Though, indie filmmakers often voice their disdain for the genre every opportunity they get, which is about as elitist as one can be.  So, big name stars and younger actors…

    I honestly don't think I've seen a selfie stick in real life -- maybe I'm just not looking hard enough? -- but they're the latest tech gadget to draw significant ire from the general public at large, so much so that Coachella and Lollapalooza have decided to explicitly ban them from their festivals this year. As Brooklyn Vegan points out, they are listed under the prohibited items section of both events, with Lollapalooza taking a more diplomatic route and saying that no "GoPro attachments, selfie sticks, & monopods" will be allowed, while Coachella is far more to the point: No "Selfie sticks…

    QypJaQ is a New York-based rapper who has basically no online footprint, but it looks like he's about to "blow away" the Twittersphere thanks to his high school friend and collaborator, Azealia Banks. The duo released a video for GypjaQ's track "Blow Away," which boasts the ridiculously clever repeating hook: "Blown away like the cloud/ That carries the shade." Produced by Rob Soucy and Nick Ace, who directed Banks' interactive "Wallace" video awhile back, this new one for "Blow Away" is an expertly tailored portrait that looks like it was a lot of fun to make.

  • SiriusXM Prices Offering For $1 Billion In Senior Notes

    6 Mar 2015 | 10:32 am
    SiriusXM initially announced an offering of $750 million in senior notes to be due in 2025.  Within hours, the number grew to $1 billion in senior notes at an impressive 5.375% that would come due in 2025.  It could be that the appetite for these notes was such that the company saw the ability to raise the stakes a bit. SiriusXM has been very good about debt over the last few years, and has been adept at maintaining a good debt to EBITDA ratio.  The company has massive revenues, and frankly, borrowing money at a bit over 5% is likely a very wise move.  SiriusXM has used such debt…

For SiriusXM, the numbers that were delivered were still decent news.  The satellite radio provider garners most of its subscribers from the trials offered to consumers when a new car is purchased.  About half of the cars sold last…

    Gerrit Feenstra
    29 Mar 2015 | 3:07 pm
    Hunter Hunt-Hendrix cannot catch a break. With his work as Liturgy, he has crafted some of the most vivacious, jarring metal records we’ve heard in recent years. Take 2011’s Aesthetica as an example. The record operates between quiet and loud like little else on the market. Its use of black metal techniques (blast beat, tremolo guitar, banshee screaming) is juxtaposed with equal force by classical cadences of ritual chants and rounds. It’s pretty jarring, heady stuff that falls right in line with Hunt-Hendrix’s love of philosophy, particularly with respect to the black…

    The modular craze just won’t stop. But why should keyboardists and sound tweakers have all the fun? Pittsburgh Modular wants to bring the revolution to guitar stompbox effects. The Patch Box, teased over Twitter and due at April’s Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, is an attempt at that solution. Basically, instead of being a Eurorack bay for your shelf or desk, this is one designed for the floor, to be played by a guitarist or bass player. At the bottom, you get the usual switches. But apart from accommodating Eurorack modules (on their side) on the floor, the key appears to be…

A project by Axel Bluhme, it turns the inner functions of sampling, looping, and sequencing, into tangible, kinetic, sculptural form. Wheels turn. Magnets trigger sounds. And in what looks like the love child of a 606 and a player piano, you get a mechanical take on patterned sound.

    Scarface: I’m Dead (Rap-A-Lot, 1991, Mr. Scarface Is Back) Even listening to this now, 24 years later, this was such an incredible way to end an already classic album. I guess Biggie kind of one-upped him by committing suicide on record instead, but the whole concept that Scarface was rapping on the sixth sense tip was both innovative and poignant. Plus, I’m also almost 100% positive this was the first time I ever heard a Meters track.

As far as teaser 12″s go, this 3-song single was both enough to whet our appetite and then, as it turns out, hold us over for a while until we realized “uh oh, something went wrong.” Surprised this was left off the final LP but c’est la vie.

The earlier music that she sprinkles through the set is rearranged and the phrasing adapted slightly so that new emotion is wrung out. "The Muse" and "Master Hunter" are…

    27 Mar 2015 | 2:15 pm
    The new trailer for Southpaw has been released, and Jake Gyllenhaal, once again, is furious and angry as hell. It’s some definite drama amped up by the family angle in Antoine Fuqua’s (Training Day, The Equalizer) as a professional boxer aims to control his destiny and keep his family together following a brawl that jeopardizes everything. Judging from the new trailer, there’s plenty of Gyllenhaal shirtless, screaming, and, well, family drama. Rachel McAdams stars as the wife. Rita Ora, Forest Whitaker, and Naomie Harris co-star. Expect many cuts, scrapes, tears, and Gyllenhaal’s…

    After the outpouring of love for Noah Baumbach’s energetic female-led black-and-white character study Frances Ha and the praise out of Sundance for his upcoming Mistress America, I found myself worried that Noah Baumbach’s latest film, While We’re Young, might lack the same delightful spark. More misanthropic and dispassionate than Frances, I was right in my feeling that his latest falls more in the register of his films like Greenberg and Margot at the Wedding, yet doesn’t deliver the same complexities as those share. And while possessing its own brand of anxious charm,…

Yesterday, the Bardados-born singer began teasing her new single “Bitch Better Have My Money”, telling fans via Twitter that they could hear a few seconds if they downloaded a new app called Dubsmash. The internet of course went crazy, and not long after the song was out in full. The decidedly not radio friendly “Bitch” is Rihanna at her most ratchet, following in the footsteps of previous tracks like…

    Lurch & Chief This Aussie combo effortlessly blend fashionable genre earmarks on Breathe, their second EP. Perhaps that has something to do with their home base being Melbourne, the fashion capital down under. But once past a kind of gleaming surface, Lurch & Chief get spookier as the songs slither by. From the members’ preferred hair choices and swirly guitars, this band aims psychy. But add in the clean chorus pedal reverb, driving drums and some icy femme vocals seething around, and they further exude a dug up and soiled mid-’80s Brit-wave vibe too. Breathe comes out…

    JulieF
    26 Mar 2015 | 5:30 am
    Since Beethoven’s death on this day 188 years ago, debate has raged as to the cause of his deafness, generating scores of diagnoses ranging from measles to Paget’s disease. If deafness had been his only problem, diagnosing the disorder might have been easier, although his ear problem was of a strange character no longer seen. It began ever so surreptitiously and took over two decades to complete its destruction of Beethoven’s hearing. Deafness, however, was but one of many health problems that plagued Beethoven throughout his lifetime. He suffered with intermittent episodes of abdominal…

    VictoriaD
    26 Mar 2015 | 3:30 am
    In 2013, R&B singer Robin Thicke became a household name. “Blurred Lines” was Thicke’s fortuitous soul-disco-funk-influenced “pop” collaboration with producer Pharrell Williams and rapper Clifford Harris, Jr. (aka “T.I.”). It became the top-selling single of the year globally (selling over 14.8 million units), spent the longest time at the top of the Billboard’s Hot 100, set the all-time record for reaching the largest US radio audience, and also reached no. 1 in 80 countries. Since then, however, “Blurred Lines” and Thicke’s overwhelming success have been eclipsed…

    What were the first musical instruments to be regularly played in public concerts by entire orchestras of British women? The answer may surprise you. From the mid-1880s until the First World War, hundreds of “Ladies’ Guitar and Mandolin Bands” flourished throughout Britain, including several consisting entirely of female members of the aristocracy. Their performances (often in the country’s most prestigious concert halls) were enthusiastically reviewed in the press, their repertoire included symphonies, orchestral overtures, and operatic excerpts, and the largest bands often had more…

Yet the road to the Mark Hellinger Theatre was long and arduous. The musical is based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, of course, but Shaw was against allowing anyone to set his plays to music (Noel Coward was amongst those he turned down). After Shaw’s death in 1950, though, suddenly a musical Pygmalion seemed possible. However, nobody could get it to happen. Rodgers and Hammerstein, riding on the…

    In honor of the countless phenomenal women who have shaped the music industry, we’ve pulled together a playlist highlighting our favorite boldest and brightest female voices who have made a lasting impression in music. “Piece of My Heart”, “Misery’n”, and “Ball and Chain” by Janis Joplin “Whenever I listen to Janis Joplin, I’m always mesmerized by the gritty and unadulterated roughness that characterizes her music, allowing her to exude both toughness and vulnerability at the same time. It makes all of her music feel so raw and beautiful and…

    Alex Ross: The Rest Is Noise

  • Boulez, Slonimsky, Raksin

    Alex Ross
    29 Mar 2015 | 3:17 pm
    This Betty Freeman image, taken in 1992, appears in an online collection of Los Angeles Philharmonic photos. One senses that the conversation is off to an awkward start; perhaps it will warm up shortly. All three men had associations with Frank Zappa, incidentally. In 1989, Raksin moderated a discussion between Boulez and Zappa; the LA Times account of the event is amusing. Previously: For David Raksin, Do not laugh at Faery.

    Breathe by Resistor A few months ago I was contacted by the band Resistor to do a remix for a song called Breathe. Resistor is an EBM band from Bogota Colombia. Since I had a great time there when I performed there and my friends Delectro, Modernista and Equitant were also doing remixes I said yes. The release is on Black Leather Records which is owned by Victor Lenis aka Cute Heels. Victor is a bit crazy but his music is always great. I did the remix almost entirely on my now large Eurorack modular. The drums are Tiptop Audio 808s sequenced by a Tiptop Circadian Rhythms. I layered the snare…

    YouTube is preparing to relaunch their live streaming platform so they can compete head-on with Twitch. Last year Google tried to buy Twitch before it was eventually acquired by Amazon. YouTube has had a streaming platform for some time, but their technology has been a long way behind Twitch and they have struggled to gain traction. However, if they were to get the technology up to speed and integrated with the largest video platform in the world and then offer Google’s world beating advertising platform, is has to be a win.. right?

For the past three years, the hill town hosts the Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Festival (KRBF), an event that has seen performances by some of Indian indie’s biggest exports including Soulmate, Indus Creed and Indian Ocean.

    Those of you who were around during the days when musicians categorized each other as members of either the ‘pro rock scene’ or the ‘am rock scene’ might remember an alt-rock quartet called Human Abstract. Coming from an era in which using this font was considered to be a good idea, the band was a perfect proponent of a guitar-driven rock scene whose sole purpose seemed to replicate the manufactured aggression of the early noughties alt-rock/nu-metal boom. It’s hard to imagine the erstwhile guitarist of that band, Rohan Kadam, drifting away from crunchy,…

    I have never really seen an audience, as a collective unit, so completely emotionally invested in a live music performance. I had heard about the gigs that took place at The Mezz and Turquoise Cottage (I grew up in Delhi); gigs that played a formative role in the lives of many artists, journos and scenesters. But I’d never actually experienced a show, or a performance like that, in the city. It was only in 2013, when I caught And So I Watch You From Afar’s set at the 2013 edition of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender, that I realised why live music could be such an alluring and powerful…

    Rob Fields
    12 Feb 2015 | 2:44 pm
    Anticipation and longing. That’s what so many within the black independent film community have been feeling ever since the seminal film Losing Ground was directed by Kathleen Collins. Some folks had known Collins, who died at age 46 in 1988. Others had moved in her orbit as students, or as crew on the set of her film. Across the decades, scholars and curators and filmmakers alike have referenced Collins’ groundbreaking film about a black woman intellectual with an artist husband on a quest for sexual liberation. Everyone knew about this mythic film. But almost no one had seen it.

    The BoDeans came rolling through Cleveland last fall for a mother of a show that featured legendary drummer Kenny Aronoff behind the kit. At that time, I spoke with longtime BoDeans vocalist/songwriter Kurt Neumann and I was interested to find out what it was that was bringing them through town. As it turns out, the tour had been planned to support a new album that had been pushed back to a 2015 release. I Can't Stop is that new album and you can finally get your hands on it as of April 21st. With that in mind, I figured that I'd dig out that interview with Kurt, since he talks quite a bit…

For those of you who already picked up the expanded reissues of Waking Hours, Change Everything and Twisted, you'll know that this is good news.

That’s a little more difficult. Where do you even start?

    Page CXVI The Church Calendar Series: – Advent to Christmas – Lent to Maundy Thursday – Good Friday to Easter (new release) www.pagecxvi.com By Bob Marovich I discovered the intriguing music of Page CXVI via an email from Noisetrade about Good Friday to Easter, the trio’s latest and final release in their Church Calendar Series. There they were—husband-and-wife team Reid and Latifah Phillips and Dann Stockton—rendering church hymns with humble melodies and a pop underlay of gently jangling guitars, emotional violin, and contemplative keys.  The group could just…

    “Just For Me” Tim Spady feat. Jeff Murrell Available on iTunes (release date: March 20, 2015) https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/just-for-me-feat.-jeff-murrell/id978825762 The always-melodic songwriter Tim Spady of Philadelphia teams with vocalist Jeff Murrell on the Easter-themed “Just For Me.” Over Spady’s dramatic and semi-classical musicianship, Murrell praises Jesus for paying the price “just for me.” His tear-stained tenor is the ideal medium for this song about the ultimate sacrifice.

    Tay Clemons Journey to Love We Dream Entertainment Group (December 2014) www.tayclemons.com By Bob Marovich No love song written and performed by a woman is nearly as powerful and heartfelt as those she has written to express her affection for Jesus. Proof of this hypothesis can be found among the songs on Shantavia “Tay” Clemons’s debut album Journey to Love. Born in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Clemons wraps her clear, pop-inflected voice around a stack of love songs to the Most High. She receives ample support in the first few cuts by processed electronic urban AC and solid rap…

  • Desert Island Discs: ‘Disintegration,’ the Cure

    Peter Lee
    25 Mar 2015 | 2:01 pm
    If you're ever deserted on an island, with little hope of rescue, you'd want albums that would keep your spirits high and help you hope for the future. So I have to admit that Disintegration would make a lousy album to have with you; within two weeks you'd hang yourself from the nearest palm tree, or bash your head in with a coconut. Disintegration is spooky, sometimes angry, but most of the time it's extremely depressing. The BBC described it as "taking a long bath in someone else's despair." That being said, it's one of the best albums of the late 1980s, it cemented the Cure as The Goth…
  • Album Review: ‘Pop2!’, Dana Countryman

    Peter Lee
    22 Feb 2015 | 12:51 pm
    The subtitle for Dana Countryman's second solo album, "Pop2!", is "The Exploding Musical Mind of Dana Countryman." While that may seem a bit self-serving for an album title, it's apt: Countryman's mind is exploding with music from the 1960s and 1970s. He seems to have found a formula for the prototypical 70s soft-rock song, and he applies it to most of the songs on the album. The album's opener "Baby, I'll Be Your Star," is pure sugary pop in the style of Eric Carmen and the Raspberries with a touch of the Left Banke (hear the harpsichord?). Complete with three-art harmonies, saxophones and…
  • Lesley Gore: 1946-2015

    Peter Lee
    18 Feb 2015 | 7:45 pm
    Most of the obituaries for Lesley Gore, who died Feb. 16 at the age of 68, listed "It's My Party" as the classic teen angst song, long before Taylor Swift or Debbie Gibson tried the same thing. But honestly, I've never really paid that much attention to the lyrics outside of the chorus. Ah, the chorus. That moving chorus with the chromatic steps up and down the scale breaks your heart. Raising just one note by a half-step creates tension and sadness in the song - more than any words about Johnny and Judy could achieve. It was a classic girl group song - so much so that Phil Spector wanted it…
  • The Return of the Explorers Club

    14 Feb 2015 | 11:19 am
    Winter's waning, but Jason Brewer of the Explorers Club has a bad cold. His voice is shot, and on the second leg of this two-show tour of the Southeast, he'll need an interpreter. The interpreter is Wyatt Funderburk, one of the newest members of a revamped Explorers Club that has changed with each album. The band has almost completed its third album, slated for release in late summer. Brewer met Funderburk, who was already an Explorers Club fan, on Facebook, and the two used to trade spins on the now-defunct turntable.fm. When Brewer moved to Nashville, he asked Funderburk to be in the new…
  • Grammy Shmammy 2015

    Peter Lee
    9 Feb 2015 | 6:06 pm
    Last night's Grammy awards show bored many viewers. Maybe it's because there was very little controversy (Hi, Kanye! You're back!) and few bizarre performances. It was just a straight-up pop music show, interspersed with Sam Smith and Beck going onstage to accept awards every 15 minutes. Yes, many of the songs performed were low-key, but who cares? They were still full of power and emotion, and for a few exceptions, the musicianship was better than any Grammy show I've seen in a while. The Best: 1. Poor Hozier. The emerging artist from the UK performed his song "Take Me to Church" and was…

    Two basic ideas – one gold and one black - result in dramatic impact in the new Gold Souk building at the Beverwijk Bazaar in The Netherlands. Rotterdam-based Liong Lie Architects had the cool opportunity to design a brand new hall for the gold dealers and goldsmiths that offer their wares each weekend at the Goudstraat (Goldstreet) at the Eastern Market of the famous Bazaar.   The designers based the uneven shape of the building on a raw piece of gold. They covered the façade with gold-tinted panels with a triangle pattern. The panels are placed in different orientations so…
  • Humming Puppy Yoga Studio, Prahran, Melbourne

    Humming puppy?

Clients leave a nondescript inner-city Prahran side street, climb a set of industrial stairs into the studio (known here as a shala) and enter a cocooned space where every detail of the design – custom lighting, soundtrack and interiors is geared towards preparing yogis physically and mentally for their…
  • CJ's Hendry's 50 Foods in 50 Days Series On Hermes Plates

    Solitary confinement, food, high end design, prisoners on death-row, final meals, twenty-four hours, and fifty days. It sounds like the subplot for a quirky action film yet instead it’s actually an artistic collision of the senses, represented through beautiful one-of-a-kind hand drawn art. “50 foods in 50 days” is CJ Hendry’s newest collection and it’s a bold endeavour for an artist who continues to deliver the unexpected. At first glance it is French designer plates and mouth-watering foods. However, the collection is so much more than just an exploration of…

Fifteen years ago there was no such thing as ‘Photoshop art’. The thought that art could be generated on computers would have made traditionalists cringe.

    A horrifying case is emerging from a San Francisco, Cali. jail, where public defender Jeff Adachi says four police deputies forced prison inmates to fight "gladiator-style" and placed bets on who would win. Adachi says the deputies staged “outrageously sadistic scenarios that sound like they’re out of ‘Game of Thrones,'” promising hamburgers to the winner and says inmates were “threatened with Mace, handcuffed beatings, and transfers to dangerous housing quarters if they refused to fight.” Inmates were also threatened with tasering if they sought medical attention for any injuries…

    There has been a lot of information floating around about the unspeakably disturbing case of Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings co-pilot who prosecutors believe deliberately crashed Flight 4U9525, killing all on board. It's difficult to separate fact from speculation right now, but here's what is known. Lubitz had a psychiatric condition that he kept hidden from his employer. Several doctors' notes were recovered from Lubitz's home in Germany—including one that was shredded—but it remains to be seen what clues, if any, they'll reveal about the motives for his act of mass murder.

All proceeds made at the door go directly to the local acts, while Red Bull covers the headlining acts to bring more exposure for the locals. Thus far, the series has included performances by Lee Ranaldo & the Dust, Black Lips, Juicy J, Madlib, Aesop Rock, Tobacco, Shabazz Palaces, DIIV, Little Tybee, the Rock*A*Teens, and many more.

    or Just Because Something Doesn't Apply To Me, Doesn't Mean it's not a Valid Concern When I recently critiqued a job listing site for forcing a "Full Name" on a user when signing up, someone thought an appropriate retaliation and refutation of my complaint was that I wasn't mononymous myself (an appeal to hypocricy/tu quoque?). Aside from the various reference materials on how to approach user names and personal names on the web (including a W3C reference article), it's surprising how often websites still force people to use their full names when doing so is completely unnecessary.

  • Slack is the new Social Network

    Simon
    4 Mar 2015 | 9:17 pm
    In the past few weeks I have joined two different Slack groups with about 2000 users each. Within the context of transient & ephemeral communication - communication that ultimately disappears - free Slack groups fit a niche somewhere between IRC (super transient) and Reddit (pretty static comparatively). There have been a lot of words spilled about why ephemeral communication is the future of social media. I don't think I need to add to the mountain already out there. Within the context of chat vs. commenting, Slack is real-time and immediate. I'm not aware of as many words spilled on…

  • Some Rambles About Geekdom

    Simon
    28 Jan 2015 | 8:48 pm
    Note: This post was originally taken from a conversation thread a year ago. I stumbled across it in my 'to write about' folder, and with some minor tweaks, here it is. Forgive the style, I was in a Chomsky mood at the time. There's a post that accomponies this that has some quick thoughts on geeks and media. Geekdom is interesting because there's no set definition of the word geek, so it's easy to apply to any large category of people that don't fit whatever the norm is, and whoever society wants to outcast at the time. Most popularly geeks are people who are outliers in school / college, and…

  • Death Grips’ “I Break Mirrors with My Face in the United States” Is Exactly What You’d Expect

    Shane Barnes
    27 Mar 2015 | 2:05 pm
    Death Grips have always been enigmatic, which is a good thing, because they’ve always tried so hard to be enigmatic. They said they’d broken up, but now they’re back together, maybe. Anyway, they’ve got a new video for a new song and it’s called, amazingly, “I Break Mirrors with My Face in the United States.” The song is an assault on your whole being, and the video is just as much of one, picking up any of the pieces left behind from MC Ride’s verbal hammering. This beauty of a beast is off of the band’s upcoming album, Jenny Death, which…

    Some weeks it’s all about the indies, and other weeks it’s all about the stars. This week saw the release of the Rihanna’s anticipated followup to “FourFiveSeconds,” titled “Bitch Better Have My Money,” and Jamie xx dropped a Romy Madley-Croft-featuring single from his debut solo album In Colour. We’ve got some Syrian stuff, some chill stuff, and some pure ’90s indie rock stuff for you, too. Jamie XX ft. Romy Madley-Croft — “Loud Places” Technically, this is not an xx song, but it definitely could be. The production of Jamie…
  • Ben Stiller Was a Teenage Punk Rocker, and His Band’s Album Is Being Reissued

    Moze Halperin
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:32 pm
    You know him for milking cats while being a Focker, having a secret life while rhyming with “shitty,” not being an ambi-turner, overstaying his welcome at museums, not being able to stomach Moroccan cuisine, and, most recently, using Bushwick as his playground for midlife crisis. But despite the panoply of identities Ben Stiller has taken on in film, you’ve probably never known him as “teenage punk rocker in a band called Capital Punishment.” Well, now you’ll get to know that Ben Stiller. For he was in said band, and in 1982, said band released an…

    It’s 2015, and there’s Duran Duran news that is worth getting exciting about, if only very cautiously: the band, which saw its heyday in the ’80s, has reportedly finished a full-length album that was produced by Mark Ronson and Chic’s Nile Rodgers, and which will feature spots by futurist R&B wunderkind Janelle Monae and “Hideaway” dancer/singer Kiesza. Nile Rodgers previously produced a remix of Duran Duran’s “The Reflex,” which, upon its 1984 release, became the band’s best-selling song. Mark Ronson produced the band’s…

A few days ago, Zayn Malik destroyed that world by quitting One Direction, citing exhaustion and a desire to live like a normal, filthy rich 22-year-old, out of the public eye. Yet, out of sight is not out of mind when it comes to Zayn and his One Directioners: apparently, news of Zayn departing 1D has caused several hundred fans to go into a tailspin, too busy overflowing Vine with tears to report into work. According to reporting done by BuzzFeed, at least 200 people have requested compassionate leave because of the…

A few years ago a friend of mine turned me on to the band Dengue Fever. Been a fan ever since.Recently while searching YouTube for any video of the old Connie Francis track "Don't Ever Leave Me" written by Ellie Greenwch, I found this band called Cocktail Slippers. Their version was released in 2009 and totally updates the original bringing the song into the 21st century with a sassy, electric, rock n roll edge it truly deserves.

Mixi prefers to be fronting a band and only did a single and video for Geffen. If you haven’t heard Mixi and her band which is comprised of James Decker on drums, Meritt Goodwin on bass, Luke Man on guitar (and are currently in discussion about adding a second guitarist) they are far from the pop princess that Geffen wanted her to be.

    Sydney’s Twin Caverns has entranced me with their latest single, “Pyramids.” Louise Millar’s soft enchanting vocals petrify you in a steady state of dreams while Michael Macias casts magical spells on you with a his DARKSIDE-like guitar work. Backed by a steady beat and a gypsy’s tambourine it’s an eerily haunting song, one in which you don’t have to believe in the healing power of sheep’s blood, a 3 eyed raven, or talismans to feel it take you over. Keep an eye out for their forthcoming EP Glass Balloon scheduled to hit the world just after Easter.

Popular performers and songwriters Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke were sued over their hit 2013 song “Blurred Lines” that the defendants—the family and estate of Marvin Gaye—say was plagiarized from a Gaye tune, “Got To Give It Up.” The court ruled in favor of the Gaye family. If this verdict stands…
  • Are More Visitors Really What We Need?

    Jan Ramsey
    11 Mar 2015 | 3:47 pm
    We love visitors to the city. We really do, despite the fact that some come to New Orleans with pre-conceived expectations of it being “party city,” and then proceed to drink to excess (drinking to have recreational fun is NOT the same as drinking to excess), trash the city streets, and acting like—shall we say boorish—while they are here. I wonder how often if those types of tourists are those sorts of people who come back to New Orleans again and again. The visitor who come back to New Orleans repeatedly are those who are entranced more by the flavor, culture, music and charm of the…
  • Startup New Orleans

    4 Mar 2015 | 3:54 pm
    The local media is touting the fact that New Orleans is a hotbed of activity for startup businesses. Entities like the Idea Village really kicked this movement into high gear, and various and sundry angel investor groups are now looking into investing in startup companies. For example, the New Orleans Startup Fund’s website asserts that New Orleans is far exceeded the US average on business startups per 100,000 adult population. It’s true. There are so many new businesses that have recently started here, and no wonder: the city is recovering economically; there’s a new huge teaching…
  • Curmudgeonly Thoughts on Krewe Gras

    Jan Ramsey
    18 Feb 2015 | 4:25 pm
    Mardi Gras is over, thank goodness. Here are a few curmudgeonly comments. It’s fun to view the parades, appreciate the beauty of the costumes, laugh at the drunks, catch beads ‘n’ crap, dance to the marching bands and Mardi Gras music, visit with your neighbors, meet new people in the crowd. But. I have to tell you that Mardi Gras can be a royal pain in the ass. People in New Orleans accept it, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t bitch about it. Traffic is horrendous, and God help you if you make a wrong turn and get stuck in a queue that’s backed up because of a blocked-off…

  • Cillie Barnes: Facework

    admin
    27 Mar 2015 | 11:05 pm
    There’s something in the frustration opening this track that feels incredibly rare nowadays — a break from the usual wound-in-hindsight poet. Plenty of songwriters pen cathartic cuts (“Ballad in Plain D” comes first to mind), but catharsis in real time, without affording oneself such wit of the staircase, is rare. Cillie Barnes’ “Facework,” which was recorded with Mike Mogis and Nate Walcott in Omaha, opens her new EP out next month.

    From an instrumental standpoint, Wisconsin’s PHOX could bang out tight-knit whimsy all day, but then Monica Martin’s voice comes in, bringing with it a much-needed layer of light emotive tension. Simply put, they’re a fun band and a fitting way to ring in the new season. “Never Lover,” a springtime swoon that would fit well on their self-titled debut, was unveiled for Minnesota’s North Shore Sessions this week. Both this session, which finds Martin moving in and around the house’s performance space, and their new Tiny Desk Concert…
  • Emily Barker: Little Deaths (The Toerag Sessions)

    admin
    26 Mar 2015 | 2:21 pm
    London’s Toe Rag Studios — complete with an EMI REDD console formerly housed at Abbey Road — is one of the best under-the-radar studios around. Anyone who’s heard the White Stripes’ Elephant knows its vintage charm, but the other secret weapon is owner Liam Watson, a skilled engineer with a knack for catching timeless cuts on a 2-inch tape machine with just a handful of microphones. Of course, the main ingredient in all this is the talent in front of those mics, and this take from Stroud, England’s Emily Barker would sound great in any room.

    Will Oldham is often depicted as an enigmatic, headstrong solo artist, which seems to be true in part. But don’t forget that he’s also one of the most open-minded and prolific collaborators around. In the past year alone, Bonnie’s teamed up with Dawn McCarthy, Mark Kozelek, Santiparro, Doug Paisley, and many, many more, with each project leaning just as much toward his partners’ sound as his own oeuvre. The latest collaboration is with Watter, a post-rock outfit featuring members of Slint (Britt Walford), Grails (Zak Riles), and King Crimson (Tony Levin).

    The Tempest of Old by Gabrielle Papillon There are some new tunes over the past decade for which I can’t help but imagine a Johnny Cash American series version. “Ain’t No Bitter” — Gabrielle Papillon‘s fine new piece of foreboding redemption — could be among that canon. Recorded in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia, producer Daniel Ledwell infuses the cut with equal parts darkness and light; a theme of the record’s multi-textured yet inherently warm palette. There are many other standouts on The Tempest of Old, from the gothic dirge…

Mordy Ferber in the Megatrax Studios Q: When you are creating, is your approach different, depending on whether you’re playing acoustic or electric guitar? A: In the beginning, I was influenced by so many things that I grew up with – classical music, jazz, modern jazz, Israeli folk – you don’t know it until you write the music, and if you say “it’s melodic,” where does the influence come from? Before I moved to the States, I was listening to standards. But I love to write music on my nylon string. I…

Juvie also mentioned that when he had beef with Baby and Cash Money years ago, Tunechi stayed out of the way of it and so…

    David Erickson
    22 Mar 2015 | 4:47 pm
    Although marketers realize digital radio has inherent limitations as a rich media or video medium, they are experimenting with novel ways to use the channel. Brands including Sony PlayStation, Anheuser-Busch and Procter & Gamble have tested a concept in which they “own” an hour of time on Pandora. If the listener opts in to an advertising message at the beginning of a session—say, watching a video ad—the next hour of listening is ad-free. Automakers have particularly close affinities with digital radio because of the streaming apps’ native integrations with in-dash players. BMW…

Indeed, in an October 2014 study from GroupM ESP conducted by GroupM Next, US internet users ranked listening to music as the most important activity in their lives, at 22% of respondents.

    I never sleep the night before running a singing workshop and I always feel terribly nervous before a concert – whether I’m singing or conducting.photo by FrancescoBut I wouldn’t have it any other way. The day you stop being nervous is the day you should give up. Here’s why.blast those nerves!I did a corporate singing workshop recently very much outside my comfort zone (large group of non-singers, mainly men). I was very, very nervous. Everyone who knew me said “It’ll be fine”. But that didn’t help.No matter how prepared I am or how many times I’ve done something I always…

    LA four-piece girl gang Warpaint, comprised of vocalists/guitarists’ Theresa Wayman and Emily Kokal, drummer Stella Mozgawa and Jenny Lee Lindberg on bass and backing vocals, show London why you’d want to be a part of their gang. All four walk on stage silhouetted against a smoky ethereal blown up backdrop of their self-titled album cover artwork, an image of a ghostly amalgamation of all four members faces. The stage is playfully decorated with a floor running neon light, interweaved through all four’s posts amongst their musical wires, with hanging coloured light bulbs framing the…
  • Funktionslust – A Different Street

    25 Mar 2015 | 9:20 am
    In advance of their debut EP, A Different Street, due for release next month London-based duo Funktionslust have released one of the most urgent, exciting electronic tracks I’ve heard in a very long time. There’s rich, R&B vocals from Sage Redman layered over fast-paced, skittish beats, booming bass, and electronic grooves that twist and turn in and out of tune, in and out of time, developing into a vital skewed-pop ride. I’m pretty obsessed right now. Funktionslust – A Different Street was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

    I've hinted at this in some previous posts, but I'll be headed down to Knoxville, TN this weekend for the 4th edition of Big Ears Festival, which Rolling Stone has called "the classiest, most diverse festival in the country.” With good reason: encompassing everything from experimental and new music, to industrial electronica and indie rock, the festival is the brainchild of veteran Knoxville promoter Ashley Capps, best known as the driving force behind Bonnaroo and the Forecastle Festival. This year, the artists in residence are the Kronos Quartet, who will be playing no…

The performance, which was held outdoors in the Summergarden, combined tuned triangles, hi-hats and 1-bit electronics in an ecstatic, trance-inducing swirl of sound.  Over the past year and a half, the Meehan/Perkins duo has performed Parallels multiple times, refining their technique and honing their chops.

    Once upon a time, before Ben Stiller was a runway model or a barometer of our maturity, he was a teenager who enjoyed cool young person things. And, via some combination of luck, taste, and the musically excellent time period in which he was raised, he ended up playing drums in a totally decent punk band called Capital Punishment for a hot minute. Now, that band is getting reissued (or more realistically, issued for the first time) by indie label Captured Tracks, and Stiller is positively tickled by it. On a recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show, he explained: I was in a ridiculously…

    No artist can stay on top forever, and Madonna had managed to stay at the front of the pack for longer than pretty much anyone else in music history. However, if her last few albums were an extended death knell, the content and sales of her most recent record are the judges, the final nail in the coffin has been slammed firmly into place, as she’s posted her worst sales numbers ever, moving less than 150,000 copies to date. Showing approximately 116,000 units moved in week one, sales fell by nearly 80% in week two, with a paltry 22,800 copies sold. While some may be quick to defend the low…

    North Bay hardcore legends Ceremony make waves once again with the announcement of their 5th studio album, “The L-Shaped Man.” 2012 saw the once gritty punk-rock powerviolence band evolve into a more polished post-punk sound with “Zoo.” An evolution that divided longtime fans of the band, it was a hard pill to swallow for some, but a positive departure for others. The duel track music video for “The Separation” and “The Understanding” has pretty much put to rest any idea that they were ever going to devolve back to their original sound. Even more polished, and, dare I say, pop…

    THERE has long been a perception that the children of famous parents have it easier than most, but when your father is little short of a living legend, the towering comparative comes with a unique curse. As the son of Leonard Cohen, Adam Cohen has always faced a battle to be taken seriously as a singer-songwriter and not just one that’s in the industry off his father’s legacy. In 1998, aged 26, he released his first, eponymously titled solo album which made little impact. Six years later, he resurfaced as the frontman of a rock band, ‘Low Millions’, that never quite made it,…

Unfortunately the secret got out many years ago—tourism has long been the principal industry here – encouraging a constant crush of admirers, but the preservation orders and bylaws very strictly ensure that the centre maintains its ancient allure. Brussels may be the bustling gateway capital thirty miles away, but Bruges was once the artistic and commercial hub of the whole European…

While Torbay’s sandy beaches and sub-tropical climate have long been highlighted, the region has recently undergone a dramatic refurbishment to shake off the dreary Fawlty Towers tagline that has haunted the tourist board for almost 40 years.

Bags of volume!There are a variety of factors that come in to play that influence how a ukulele is going to play and sound, and it certainly goes beyond the usual suspects that people focus on of 'solid tone woods and strings'. You see no matter how nice a piece of tone wood has been used in the construction of the instrument, it is always going to let you…
  • Should You Worry About Solid Woods Opening Up on a Ukulele?

    Barry Maz
    23 Mar 2015 | 10:17 am
    In the world of stringed instruments, particularly guitars, if there is one topic that seems to create more disagreement than any other, it's the concept of solid wood tops 'opening up' with time. So in what may prove to cause exactly the same sort of debate, lets look at that concept with ukuleles.First up, if you are playing a laminate or plastic uke, then this doesn't apply to you. Nothing wrong with those ukes, it's just that they will never open up with time by virtue of their very nature, as I will explain below. I'm certainly not excluding you for any other reason than that, and I too…
  • LR Baggs Venue DI Pre-amp - REVIEW

    Barry Maz
    22 Mar 2015 | 9:02 am
    I've spoken before on Got A Ukulele of the benefit of a pre-amp box if you are plugging in to an amplifier. Last time we looked at this model from Fishman which is rather good. Time to look at what may be considered a luxury option, particularly with a price tag of around £300. The LR Baggs Venue DI. But does that cost make sense?I've been a fan of LR Baggs gear for some time, particularly their Gig Pro series of belt clip pre amp boxes. They just sound incredibly clear and natural with acoustic instruments and far more so than any many other pre amp boxes which can still leave the ukulele…

    Thought it was about time to put up a clearer comparison of the different sizes of ukulele.And lets stop this nonsense that any one uke size is in any way better than another - they all have their place. It's all about differing tones. It's not about upgrading as they get bigger, or some being easier than others.Beware the myths!© Barry Mazcopyright Barry Maz and Got A Ukulele

    Work Drugs has been consistently providing us all with an excellent (and plentiful) stream of music throughout the years and they are showing no sign of slowing down. The band may have a couple handfuls of albums to their name and more memorable singles than you can shake a stick at, but My Billie Jean just may have charted itself as my favorite release of theirs. It’s got that classic, Work Drugs sound that’s bursting with laid back nostalgia, but the new track also comes with a chorus catchy enough to find its way stuck in your head long after listening.

This seems to add dimension to the music, a certain hue, wisdom, and depth. Shauna is the lovely voice of Ummagma, a dreamy, ethereal, rhythmic electro duo. She, along with her husband Alexx Kretov, have created a ton of beautiful music, which has been remixed in so many ways, each one equally as cool as the last.

Here's what to listen for.1. Take a listen to the reverb. There's a lot of it on the vocal (which you don't hear in the mix), and it's pretty short and delayed.2. Most of the song has the lead vocal doubled. The exceptions are in the beginning of the first verse and the ad libs on…

The problem with this is that most people are over playing, this leads me to hit the back button within 30 seconds of the clip starting.   It’s not that they haven’t spent hours listening, learning and perfecting the tune.   It’s often that they haven’t listen to the tiniest and…

Follow their guidance and there’s no way to fail.

    It’s been a great run, but the time has come to close down the Radio Crowdfund shop. I simply can’t find decent music on Kickstarter or Indiegogo any longer and PledgeMusic is a thinly veiled old school record label doing a great job of administering album pre-sales and laying off the development costs on the bands and artists they carefully select to participate. And I can’t find any good music there, either. Bottom line is that I feel like I’ve witnessed the rise and fall of music crowdfunding over the last 18 months. It used to be easy to find great new artists and…

    An LP full to the brim with slow to medium paced piano ballads may not be to everyones taste but Ralegh Long’s debut LP ‘Hoverance’ seems completely fitting on this wet, wind-swept Sunday morning. This beautiful 10 track release oozes tranquility and leaves one with an overwhelming sense of satisfaction. The fact that ‘Hoverance’ exists at all is quite remarkable. I for one thought we may have heard the last of Ralegh Long, considering it has been nearly 3 years since the artists last release proper (the Gift EP’s) but the London based artist has managed…

    The Accidental Journalist
    28 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    Out this week is the impressive debut EP from Icelandic singer-songwriter DíSA. The 5 track ‘Sculpture’ EP is a clever mix of electronica and dark pop that highlights an artist very much on the up and up. Title track ‘Sculpture’ certainly stands out; containing angelic vocals, thrashing guitars towards its climax and the sort of base that is guaranteed to rattle floor boards. It’s a dramatic and passionate track to begin ones musical CV with. It’s hard to find fault with any of the music on offer here. ‘Marry You’ is a beautiful stirring…

    Stone Crazy:Cool blog to read. Originally posted on Not Your Jukebox: I occasionally get to see what search terms lead people to Not Your Jukebox. A couple of weeks ago, the question of “why do white DJs make all the money” led some curious soul to this site. After an initial chuckle, I realized that this is actually a damn good question. When you look at the top earners, per Forbes magazine, 15 of the top 16 are white. The one non-white is Steve Aoki, and well… close enough. So why is there so little diversity when it comes to the top earners? Why didn’t techno legend Carl Cox even…

    Today I'd like to mention 2 Classic Blues Solos for intermediates and advanced players. Star slow, gradually increase speed.- Help the poor (Robben Ford's version): very bluesy and jazzy, not for beginners in fact only advanced players can play it really good, but you can start at your own level. The solo is not only based upon the pentatonic scale so there are a few interesting variations.- Mary Had a Little Lamb (Stevie Ray Vaughan) : typical pentatonic solo but super fast and good to improve with bendings and dexterity, Vaughan being one of the hardest players to play at original…

    Andy Barnes

    We have all heard of the TV show “The Voice”, with the novel idea of having the judges only listen to the voice during the audition while not being able to see the contestant. Even though there are several steps that a singer will need to take to just be able to sing for a blind audition, in this article I want to share 5 tips that I believe will help you to blitz the actual blind audition, whether you are chosen or not. There are many factors on why some singers are chosen and others are not. I have seen some very good singers with great voices and vocal technique get rejected in…

There’s not really too much information about her. She grew up in Norway, play in her brother’s metal band, relocated to New York, and creates some delightfully ethereal and melancholic music. The music and video for her track ‘Damn, Gravity’ is a beauty. The video’s like a less party centric version of ‘1979’ by The Smashing Pumpkins. In fact, perhaps this is the post-party video. The…

Fever to Tell and It’s Blitz back to back, set the scene perfectly for the entrance of London grunge-pop-folk-rockers Wolf Alice, who take to the stage in Oran Mor, on the first night of their UK tour. Attracting a mixed crowd in Glasgow’s middle class West End, Oran Mor isn’t my favourite venue.

    We’ve become hopelessly obsessed with the title track on Sydney trio Seekae’s 2014 album The Worry. A hugely satisfying combination of dark eighties dance rhythms akin to the Drive soundtrack, smooth and jaunty stylistic confidence, and a delayed introduction of a simple organ pump, make this track one of the most exciting things to happen in 2014 – and so far this year too. Sorry we’ve served it a bit late, but it’s  still piping hot. Get the album on digital here. The post Need to Hear: Seekae – The Worry appeared first on Bizarre Culture.

    We had the chance to speak to Florian Kruse and Nils Nuernberg, aka Kruse & Nuernberg, producers and DJs from Germany. They have just released their new EP Lost N Free from OFF Recordings. They teamed up with British singer/songwriter Brolin, who has delivered beautiful, melodic vocals to the title song. The EP also features remixes from the likes of ED ED and Sasse, who have maintained the essence of the original song whilst adding the influence of techno. Our take: Lost N Free, a dark, lush layering of synths driven by an enigmatic and moody build-up, is a set of tastefully produced…

  • Black Bean Wrap with Carrot Slaw

    26 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    I was raised on sandwich wraps. They sustained me during my finicky elementary school years where they consisted mostly of pesto sauce and pepperoni slices. I was the subject of wide eyes and questioning glances as I lifted a sandwich wrap out of my lunch box when the other kids had two slices of bread with peanut butter in the middle. I felt brave and adventurous for eating something that was exotic to the other kids. Nowadays, sandwich wraps are old news. They’re found at delis, cafés, and restaurants alike. Why? Because these guys are perfectly portable. And this black bean…

    It’s 3:00 in the afternoon. I’m feeling a tad sleepy, and a lot like I need a snack! Is this universal? In every time zone is there an enormous cry for nourishment voiced by a million people every time the clock strikes 3:00 pm? In these snack-attack moments, I have found there is nothing more lovely than having a secret stash of already prepared snacks waiting for me. Like a friend in the fridge. I already talked about the magic of leftovers, but what I love about cooking snack food, is that they are created with the beautiful intention of being around for a bit. I love to…

    It feels good to be back in the swing of things here at Modern Granola! The first official day of spring is just a breath away, and that means spending much more time outdoors. I love to cook, and I really love to eat, especially when it comes to things like this Spring Beauty Bowl, but I don’t want to spend several hours a day every day cooking for myself. I’ve come to know leftovers as a timesaver and a fun-time space-maker. The Spring Beauty Bowl recipe makes more than one bowl. It will probably make 4 stout servings, but I’m doing you a solid favor here. What could…

    I didn’t grow up celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. I distinctly remember being 4 years old and choosing green corduroy pants for the holiday at preschool because I didn’t want to get pinched. I don’t blame me. Little preschool fingers are disarmingly strong. I also have a vague memory of going leprechaun hunting at one point, but I have never resonated with the more adult, green river, green beer brand of celebrating. Though Irish blood runs through my veins, I never really connected with St. Patrick’s Day. But I think it’s high time that changed, because…

It gives me an excited feeling in my belly when I see fresh buds on trees. When I think about all of the spring fruits and vegetables that will be rolling into my kitchen, I feel utterly jazzed, which I imagine has something to do with cows and top hats… but I digress. It is so thrilling to witness the visual sensation of newness. And what I see is a perfect opportunity for a transition into new spaces,…

    Marc By Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Ready-To-Wear The rumors are true; it’s time to say farewell to Marc by Marc Jacobs. Called the “little sister line” founded in 2011 by Jacobs and his business partner Robert Duffy, MBMJ will no longer exist as a separate entity, but become intertwined as part of Jacob’s main brand. The decision is speculated to help increase his brand status for an impending IPO. While there’s likely truth to the IPO reasoning, such speculation is cynical. Indeed, merging a spinoff line into the main brand will strengthen the company as a whole.

  • Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly (Diggity Doc)

    Scott Miller
    29 Mar 2015 | 5:28 pm
    Kendrick Lamar's has a pretty good record. Section 80 was enough to build some buzz, not only in Los Angeles but around the world, it was good enough to have the world eagerly awaiting the arrival of his first album, which happened to come with a certain Dr Dre on board. Good Kid Mad City is widely known as a classic, such is Kendrick's skill on the mic whether spitting fire or telling stories, you get a bit of everything with Lamar but unlike those Jack of all trade masters of none types, Lamar is a master in every aspect of hip hop poetry.To Pimp A Butterfly takes that to a whole new level.

Both Bronson and Earl dropped albums this week and as you would expect with these two, absolute fire. Bronson did a bit of press for the album, get some insight in this convo with the Breakfast Club We posted the first video off the album on Wednesday but if ya missed it, here it is.

    One thing about being a 23 year old who loves hip hop is that I came into my love of hip hop when the business was peaking. While the 90's were definitely the good old days with 90's hip hop serving me very well to this day, when I was moving into my teen years, certain artists and a certain brand of hip hop was on the radio.Many, including myself to a certain extent, look at this period from 2000-2008 or so as a bit of a low period for hip hop but whatever. 50 Cent broke on to the scene while I was at intermediate school and after a few weeks I knew all the words to 'In Da Club'.

    Widely regarded as one of the best lyricists under 25, Earl Sweatshirt’s participation in the rap game is equal parts unwavering, and low-key.Since his return to music in 2012, Earl has carved out a lane all his own. His lyrics are terrifyingly honest, introspective, and while often dark, there is always an underlying glimmer of hope which seems to reveal itself through Earl’s stark awareness of his own potential.His latest release, Grief continues in a similar vein to work from his last album, Doris. The haunting, slow, and lo-fi production paired with his dense, frenzied…

Marcela Vale has been playing around with Tropical lo-fi and for a little while inching closer to 90’s R&B and you can listen to the fruition of this relationship in the video above.

As we explored the topic he formulated some good points about being born in sin he stated “Due to us being born in sin, it’s not our fault”.

    I first heard this absolute stunner of a remix during DJ Enferno’s live set last week at Vibe Las Olas, the nightclub that I run as music director.  It’s always fun to bring in guests from out of town to see what kind of tracks they’re playing- apparently this wild, sweaty, future Rnb is killing it in clubs across the country.  Manila Killa’s Jersey club version of this duet by Chris Brown and newcomer Sevyn Streeter is a step forward in a genre I never gave much thought to. Enjoy.

    Brand new single out now from Uk duo Gorgon City, one of our favorites from this fresh wave of UK producers.  Unlike many of the album cuts, this track features no featured singers, just subtle, suggestive vocal samples throughout.  Love this track- wide open and sky high.

  • 5 Reasons to Avoid Using Free Royalty Free Music

    Michael Musco
    5 Mar 2015 | 4:44 pm
    I've been spending a lot of time recently researching techniques to get better SEO results for my website Musco Sound. Part of this process is looking at what potential customers are saying and what type of re-occurring themes are occurring. One of the biggest questions I see online are "where can I get free music for..." followed by people sharing free music resources. You might think this makes me mad, but really it doesn't. A lot of the times I just feel bad because going after free music for any type of project has the potential to end badly.You would think that a lot of this type of…
  • Deconstructing an Approved Stock Music Track

    Michael Musco
    5 Dec 2014 | 5:55 am
    A lot of times when a new music producer asks me to listen to their music, I have noticed a fairly common issue. In a broad sense it's a problem with the mix but more specifically it is more the levels and sounds of different instruments. I was guilty of this too, and it takes a little time, experience and practice to understand what sounds good alone, and what sounds good in a mix.Sometimes I like to think of it as a musical caricature problem. What I mean by this is that if you think of a kick drum, and the sound of a kick drum, how does it sound to your ears. A lot of newer producers want…

    In the world of stock media Revostock is a big player.They host a large array of high quality stock media including a huge collection of after effects and motion templates, stock video, music for productions and sound fx. They are arguably on of the best marketplaces for after effects/motion templates and stock video, but as a musician my main focus is on their music category.I have been a music contributor with Revostock for a number of years, and they are a great agency to work with. The management team has character, and to me that is a very desirable quality. Revostock as a marketplace…
  • The Music Industry Isn't Broken...It's Changing

    Michael Musco
    3 Dec 2014 | 7:37 am
    I hear a lot of talk about how the music industry is dying, and maybe it is. That doesn't mean music is going away, or that musicians will stop existing. Musicians have existed for hundreds of years and from the time of Beethoven till now musicians just have to adapt to the change. From my perspective this is the best time EVER to be a musician. The walls that were put in place by the big labels and high level industry players are being broken down, and the opportunities that indie musicians have are enormous. This is a great time in the history of music to be a musician, so maybe the current…

    It is not every day where I read something and am blown away, but today that happened. A couple days ago I was browsing through the forums of the Music Library Report and a thread caught my attention. To be honest I don't really remember what the topic was about, but it was something that interested me enough to click it. Anyway, the conversation in the thread mentioned Emmett Cooke, and the eBook he wrote in a very positive way. It got me interested enough to do a quick google search to try and track down Emmett's eBook so I could read it myself.Once I found the eBook and Emmett's…

March 17th is believed to be the day St. Patrick died and therefore represents the only day wearing green head to toe seems fashionable.

    There are so many pages to my story I'm not ready to write. So many places I can't go. It's like cleaning out an attic; I started with a few easy to reach places, simple stories. Then someday I'll work my way to the darker, bug infested corners looming at the edges my mind. Waiting for their time. And then there are some memories, some pages, no matter how difficult they feel, that refuse to remain unwritten.It came to me yesterday like a whisper.

Two big lights came on above the audience pointing in on us: the band, the full stage, our gear, the interview chairs, the desk with the famous blue late-night coffee mug positioned at the edge. A camera swung between me and the audience. It had only been one song. A few minutes. A few heartbeats. Not even long enough to get nervous.It's so much easier for me to take any big performance, show, festival, TV, if I can focus on one spot. One person. One object. My Drishti. Play there and only there. Let the crowd…

  • Best Bass Headphones and Earbuds in 2015

    admin
    24 Mar 2015 | 5:21 am
    There’s more to being a bass head than just having the best bass headphones: Even if you have something that delivers the most power, it could still be insufficient to rattle your brain the way you want it to. This is because you need to power up these accessories in the right manner in order to achieve the best results. This means that while focusing on buying a good bass heavy set would be ideal, you also need to focus on the quality of the amp that you’re using. In this report, we’ll be targeting the first aspect by helping you to find your ideal product. The only issue here is that…

The problem is that creating such a complicated list is an almost impossible task. Why? Simply because we’re all different!

    Finding the best headphones for metal is dependant entirely on which type of music you listen to! This is because there are so many subgenres which can easily complicate things. It’s actually a fact that this genre is one that regularly falls victim to some hasty assumptions. While we can agree that this music can be quite intense, it doesn’t mean that the listener enjoys screaming for no reason and worships death! This is exactly what most people believe. This genre of music is actually incredibly beautiful and you can only realise that through the skill, technique and intensity used to…

    Just in time for Miami Music Week, Krewella have released a brand new track. Titled “Somewhere To Run,” it might not be as hard hitting as some of their other work, but it marks a welcome departure for the girls, who have been facing an uphill battle as of late. Radio-friendly and a step away from their dubstep roots, “Somewhere To Run” has a more rock feel to it, mixing the girls’ emotional vocals with a catchy electro beat and a nice violin riff. There’s still that signature Krewella drop included, but on the whole, the track is certainly something…

  • They Stole My Song!!! – Copyright, The Basics

    28 Mar 2015 | 2:01 am
    Hi there and welcome back. Some people are paranoid about sending out their music in case it gets stolen. In reality it’s a very rare thing. But what does it mean? Who owns a song? When you write a song it is your copyright (i.e. only you have the right to copy it and make use of it) unless you assign that copyright to someone else (usually a music publisher but if writing music is your day job it could be your employer – knows as “work for hire”). If you are signed to a music publisher then likely your contract will automatically assign your copyright over to your publisher.
