    By my count, there are 8 “constants” that we find in vocal recording. These are items or situations that almost always prove to be true. Just keeping them in mind can save you a lot of trouble in the search for a sound that works for you and your vocalist.Here are a few tips taken from The Recording Engineer’s Handbook and the Music Producer’s Handbook to help you get a great vocal sound quickly and easily without any of those nasty side effects.1) Your mic selection, amount of EQ, and compression used is totally dependent on the voice you are…

    Buzz Track: Boys Don’t Cry This is a refreshing cover of The Cure’s Boy Don’t Cry by Rebecca Clements. It has tons of vibe and could be a best movie music moment when paired with a perfect scene. She released the debut EP ‘Pure Wasted’ and was championed by XFM as one of their great Xpectations for 2015. The EP was produced by Irish musician/producer Iain Archer who worked with artists such as Jake Bugg and Bat for Lashes as well as being nominated for a 2013 Ivor Novello award for best song. The lead off track ‘Pure Wasted’ is about the toxicity of love and lets…

Now based in Kelowna, Windmills burst forth from the city of Vernon in the spring of 2011. Impressive both on record and in concert, Windmills has since developed a significant following in the Okanagan Valley and beyond.

Still drawn to nocturnal themes, Ask The Deep finds the multi-instrumentalist venturing deeper into her shadowy underworlds—notably on her latest single 'Halloween'. In 'Halloween', a group of girls appears as nightmares, sailing on a ghost ship, ambushing the boys, the dreamers of this disembodied, an infernal dream built on layers of beats.

The group doesn’t stray too far from a melodic groove on “Now” — until the final tempo-slowing wind down — and that groove is gaining traction on alt rock and Triple A formats, due in large part to their appearances on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Also, they’ve seem to have grown out of a collaborative phase with groups like Big Data to shine on their own with “Now.”  Overall, this…

    I will make no apologies for what I am about to say:  I loved Spandau Ballet and I still think their albums – especially the first two – are classics of the early ’80’s.  From the moment I first heard “To Cut A Long Story Short” in ’80, ’81, I was a fan.  Granted, as time went by and their albums didn’t seem to have the same quality (I seemed to stop paying attention around Through The Barricades), they faded from my memory – and it seems from a lot of other peoples, as well as the charts.  Certainly, aside from the success of…

    Rob Smith
    5 May 2015 | 6:30 am
    Isn’t it time Shelby Lynne had her Nick of Time moment? Similar to Bonnie Raitt in 1989, Lynne is a soulful singer with a devoted following, but limited commercial prospects or clout, needing a real deus ex machina event to propel her up the charts and into people’s living rooms (or earbuds, nowadays). In Raitt’s case, her Hand O’ the Almighty was beating Petty, Henley, and the Dylan/Harrison/Orbison/Petty Wilbury hydra for the Album of the Year Grammy. I was working at my college radio station at the time, and we’d received 8 or 10 copies of Nick of Time when it was released.

As the band, which hails from Copenhagen, explains, the song was inspired by a set at the Cavern Club in Liverpool when drummer Kristian Karup noticed what appeared to be an audience member eating a tuna sandwich. Karup called out, “Tienes un boccadillo con atún?” (“Do you have a tuna sandwich?”). At first, the audience was silent. I mean, when’s the last time you’ve heard tuna used as stage banter?

    The challenge in making tools, as in making anything else, is really the making. It’s one thing for an idea to exist in your head, another to really get down to construction. And very often great engineering means testing, means building the idea and then refining it. So prototyping is everything. That could explain the increased passion for hacking. Whereas big development efforts are a morass of meetings, or traditional prototyping could mean elaborate distractions from testing what we really works, “hacks” work to get something usable more quickly. And that means testing…

    From small boxes, big sound, and enormous fun… Something has happened in the evolution of electronic music production. What was once so often a slow process has become a jam, what was carefully orchestrated on screens finds itself embodied in gear. And small and affordable “toys” can often deliver the greatest “switch-on-and-play” satisfaction. Helsinki’s Recue and Jolea first found their way to their album by playing live, so it’s fitting we start with a live set from them. Their fusion is beat-driven, left-field pop – settling into moody,…

    You’re going to need some bigger pockets. (Overalls?) British-born, Kyoto-based Ally Mobbs has hacked the inexpensive Teenage Engineering PO-12 drum machine into a full-sized box. Instead of the tiny, fingertip-challenging buttons, you get nice, big arcade buttons. He’s also made a lovely-looking wooden case and a jack connector. All in all, what you get is decidedly less mobile, but also nicer to play. I can imagine running even further with this board – perhaps MIDI and, if someone is very clever indeed, a “dock” so you can disconnect the PO-12 and get going.

The Satanists announced this week that they're demanding exemptions to anti-abortion regulations — like Missouri's 72-hour state-mandated waiting period — claiming such measures violate their religious beliefs. It's an obvious, and brilliant, ploy to test how serious conservatives are about their supposed belief that a person's "religious liberty"...

  • Miguel facing fresh legal battle for Billboard Music Awards stage leap

    7 May 2015 | 1:36 am
    It's been two years since Miguel's ill-fated stage leap at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, but it appears as though one crowd member is finally ready to take legal action. Intending to jump over fans and land on a separate part of the stage during a live performance of his song 'Adorn', Miguel miscalculated his dive and instead smashed into two crowd members, his right leg hitting one woman's head with his left side crashing into another. Speaking the following month, a lawyer for one of the women, Khyati Shah, said that his client may be brain damaged due to the incident, though no…

The metal band released their fifth record '.5: The Gray Chapter' in 2014, six years after its predecessor 'All Hope Is Gone'. Now, Root has said that he wants a shorter interval between LPs next time around.

And last night, in her most epic sketch yet, Schumer devoted the entire episode to a black-and-white faithful parody of Sidney Lumet’s classic film 12 Angry Men. However,…

    Songwriters and artists are already pretty angry at Pandora for using whatever means necessary to pay creators less money. In fact, the FCC just approved Pandora’s plan to buy a traditional radio station, a complicated loophole to lower royalties even more. Pandora has just scored another victory. ASCAP’s appeal of Pandora’s royalty rate has been rejected. Pandora currently has to pay just 1.85 percent of revenue to ASCAP. The judge also upheld a ruling that says that publishers cannot selectively license their music through PROs like ASCAP. Universal Music Publishing,…

And sure enough, according to the Zolas frontman Zach Gray, night lifing is indeed the inspiration for the tune, though it apparently goes a little deeper than that. “Molotov Girls is a poppy, anti-girls-just-wanna-have-fun song about a group of girls pre-drinking at someone’s apartment, ostensibly to go out dancing, but as the song goes on it becomes clear they’re planning to “set the night on fire” in a more literal way.

    I wrote a lengthy post yesterday that explained an approach that I use with a lot of clients I work with and businesses I run. It’s called “The Mirror of Erised Marketing and Branding Theory.” In short, what I do with clients/businesses, is determine if the product or service they offer reflects an image back to the customer that makes the customer feel more realized for having used the product or service.

      Related to my recent post on how Amazon’s Alexa is gaining developer support, now comes the further good news that IFTTT has added an Alexa Channel. This will greatly expand the functionality of this device. My hope for this product lies much more in the, increasingly-likely, possibility that developers will actively view the Alexa as a platform. If (as it looks like they are) Amazon facilitates this, this product will succeed; if they don’t it won’t. Binary. Source: Introducing the Amazon Alexa Channel

  • GET to do versus HAVE to do

    George Howard
    22 Apr 2015 | 6:12 pm
    I ran into the provost of Berklee College of Music today. He asked me how the semester was going. Given the relentless snowstorms that Boston endured at the beginning of the semester, I think he may have been bracing himself for my response. However, he needn’t have worried (if he was). I truthfully told him, “it was going great, that teaching is my bliss, and that it’s what I get to do.” I genuinely do feel lucky that I am able to teach. I feel like I get to do it. As I walked to class, I thought about the distinction between things I have to do versus what I get to…

  • The “Blurred Lines” of music and copyright: Part two

    Miranda Dobson
    5 May 2015 | 12:30 am
    Possibly the highest-profile copyright case of the past 12 months centered on a trial between the creators of the catchy tune, “Blurred Lines”, and the Marvin Gaye estate over the song’s supposed similarities to the 1977 hit, “Got to Give it up”. The jury’s decision to award the Gaye family $7.4 million has been met with some consternation in both law and music circles, with Pharrell Williams reportedly telling the media that this verdict spells disaster for the creative industries. We asked two Oxford authors to give their opinions on the case in this two-part…
  • Kurt Cobain, making comedy of commercialism

    GeorgiaM
    30 Apr 2015 | 3:30 am
    The release of Brett Morgen’s documentary Montage of Heck has inspired new discussions of the legacy of Kurt Cobain, the Nirvana frontman who upended popular music before committing suicide in 1994. Few artists have straddled the line between nonconformity and commercialism like Cobain. Consider the three-album arc of his band’s life: though Nirvana boasted of producing its debut album Bleach for $600, Cobain became a Generation X icon by releasing its follow-up, Nevermind, on a major label, and by having a hit single, “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” that dominated MTV. In a deliberate…

    First of all, gratitude. Gratitude to Opera Parallèle for its consistently high quality productions of contemporary works, and for their extensive educational outreach program; more specifically, for its new production of Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking, featuring revised scoring for smaller orchestral ensembles—a revision that loses nothing and makes the piece more accessible for smaller companies. The venue was big enough to encompass its large cast, yet sufficiently intimate so that each nuance may be seen, heard, and appreciated. The orchestra played elegantly under Nicole…

  • Advocacy and pedagogy in secondary school singing

    Alice
    23 Apr 2015 | 3:30 am
    Music as a school subject, it so often seems, retains its apparently perilous position in the school largely as a result of the unstinting pressure of advocacy groups. The 2004 Music Manifesto that underpins much of the current drive to keep school music alive was unashamedly “a voluntary, apolitical 13-strong Partnership and Advocacy Group”. Personally, I find this slightly challenging because I was fortunate enough to attend a school during the 1960s where advocacy was quite unnecessary. The important position of music was never doubted within a curriculum organized along classical,…

    The Mercury Theatre's incomparably creepy rendition of Lucille Fletcher's The Hitchhiker, in a version from 1946. Seventeen minutes in, Bernard Herrmann is working out the theme that would become Cape Fear. It was, of course, Welles who launched Herrmann's film-music career, with Kane.

    Orson Welles, one of the supreme American artists of the twentieth century, would have been one hundred years old today. He never directed a full-blown opera production, despite numerous invitations to do so (his stagings of Copland's The Second Hurricane and Blitzstein's The Cradle Will Rock fall into a different category), but he did create what will forever stand as the greatest opera scene in film history: the disastrous première of Salammbô, with Susan Alexander Kane in the title role.

A Dischi di Angelica CD has also appeared, but I have yet to hear it.

It's Easter weekend, in my faith, the celebration of Jesus' resurrection, and the parallels are too obvious not to mention. Ben fully embodied the life, the music and the voice that lives on. The family has had a year to process and come to terms with Ben's passing from brain cancer. There is a strange relief that without a doubt he is no longer suffering.

  • Listening to Tight Voices? Danger: It can Tighten Your Own

    Judy Rodman
    30 Mar 2015 | 9:20 am
    Whew.. even just looking at this pic makes me cough...Be careful what you listen to. You know that phrase 'you are what you eat'? Well, your voice tends to mimic (be) what it hears (consumes). If you stop and think about it, the way a baby learns to talk is by listening to other voices. Not only does the child learn language, he/she also learns and assumes the inflections, tone, rhythms and other nuances and characteristics of the voices it hears most often. These different vocal tone and nuance choices are created not only by the shape, density and size of the larynx and resonators…

    Vocal Strain- Never Again!What is vocal strain?Vocal strain, like any other strain, is the overuse or misuse of the vocal cords. Only 1/2" to 1" long in adults, these little bands easily can be overblown. After just 20 minutes of screaming at a ball game, blood blisters can begin to form on them! The mucosal lining covering the vocal cords becomes irritated and inflamed, the sound of the voice becomes harsher, less controlled; you can even lose your voice completely for a time. You know it when you do it, don't you? Strain your voice, that is. Sometimes you want to pretend you didn't...

For one thing of course, acting usually involves the voice to some degree. But did you know that to use the voice effectively requires certain acting skills? The third cornerstone of Power, Path and Performance vocal training involves a deep understanding of acting technique. Without it, the voice is useless.ActingIf you've ever had a good acting coach or director, you will remember that acting is very much about making choices. Even with a script and directing…

I miss Amiri Baraka. I miss his ferocity, his observations, and his powerful artistic expressiveness. I miss him tapping the side of the podium, keeping time to an imaginary metronome, improvising his own horn, or making sure the horn player (when there was one) was on time. I miss the faces of the young people in the crowd while Amiri Baraka was reading.

Garrett Bradley’s first feature film is all of these things, and more, with a journey and visual style that keeps your eyes and attention span totally engaged. The narrative follows three very different young millennial characters newly arrived or returning to new Orleans: Elliott, a New York City native in search of who he believes is his one…

I sketched out a plot of the cues in the Emergency Story Penguin script (using Goodnotes and a Jot Mini stylus on iPad), Slung Low’s latest children’s show.

  • Guilty Pleasures: ‘Shadows of the Night,’ Pat Benatar

    Peter Lee
    2 May 2015 | 10:19 am
    Pat Benatar was a rocker, plain and simple. Overlook her melodic hooks, keyboard-laden accompaniments and harmonies. She emerged from the 1970s as a sexually tough arena rock star, often getting lumped into AOR (Mom alert: Album-Oriented Rock) acts such as Foreigner, Journey and Heart. But as can happen with most hard rockers, they tend to soften up a little to reach a winder audience (See Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is," Journey's "Open Arms," and Heart's "Alone"). 1982's Get Nervous featured more synthesizers and less hard rock, and even her look changed; she exchanged…
  • What Happened to Prince?

    Peter Lee
    10 Apr 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Yes, it's my third post in a row on Prince. I just read two biographies of him (a third is on interlibrary loan), and the hyperfocus part of my ADD is in overdrive. Bear with me. I recently listened to Prince's entire catalog as I read his biographies, trying to put each album in context along with his recording process and his frame of mind during that time. And the same thing happened as it did back when I was growing up: After 1987, the quality of his musical output suddenly plummeted. Everything after Sign O' the Times  - with the exception of a handful of songs here and there - was a…
  • Top 5 Prince Covers That Were Better Than the Original

    Peter Lee
    7 Apr 2015 | 11:47 am
    Prince has been a very generous songwriter. He's given away hundreds of songs to artists (mostly his protegé groups such as the Time, the Family, Sheila E. and Vanity 6). Others have decided to cover his songs, and most of the time a cover isn't as good as the original. But in a few cases, the cover is better than Prince's original effort, to the point where some Prince originals are almost unlistenable, especially after years of hearing the cover. Here are a few covers that surpass what Prince initially put down on tape: Any song by The Time - In demos, Prince apparently dictated exactly…
  • Prince’s Greatest Album: Dream Factory

    Peter Lee
    2 Apr 2015 | 6:16 pm
    It's a shame that Prince's greatest album was never released. In the 1980s, Prince reached his commercial peak in 1984 with the smash album and movie Purple Rain. He followed that up quickly (and rather unceremoniously) with the eclectic and disjointed Around the World in a Day, which left many fans scratching their heads. But it was a giant step forward musically, with the Purple One embracing the Paisley Underground scene, the late 60s psychedelic sound, and even world music. His next album, Parade: Music from the Motion Picture Under the Cherry Moon, was more accessible, featuring the #1…
  • 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…

    When is an email to your subscribers not simply an email to your subscribers?

Many of you are active on Pinterest and Instagram, curating and creating engaging and persuasive graphics and photos. But most of you are not including those photos in your email updates to your subscribers, and that means you’re missing out on opportunities to broaden your email audience’s experience with your brand, as well as delivering a more interesting mailing.

    For as long as architecture and music have coexisted they have been far more dependent on each other than one may have initially realized. There is an equidistance between how architecture has shaped the evolution of music and how music has done the same for architecture. It’s the notion of harmony within spaces, that essential idea that the engrained harmony and vibrancy that flows through a space then goes on to give that overall place a particular identity and then in the reverse order. As early as the 1400’s architects would use music to define structure for the most beautiful…

    I get emails from many people wanting to change or build their career. I always recommend the best book on the subject: “So Good They Can’t Ignore You” by Cal Newport. Here are a few of its best points: Forget passion and purpose Forget “follow your passion” or “find your true calling”. Stop thinking like that. Here’s why: Words like “passion” and “purpose” are dangerous because they sound huge and romantic. If you think you haven’t found your passion yet, you’re probably expecting it to be overwhelming — to hit you like lightning. Looking for your passion,…

    Derek Sivers
    20 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    One of the most important concepts I’ve learned is the difference between the “fixed” mindset and the “growth” mindset. It’s a little bit like “nature vs nurture”: People in a fixed mindset believe you either are or aren’t good at something, based on your inherent nature, because it’s just who you are. People in a growth mindset believe anyone can be good at anything, because your abilities are entirely due to your actions. This sounds simple, but it’s surprisingly deep. The fixed mindset is the most common and the most harmful, so it’s worth understanding and…

  • First Listen: Fun Frontman Nate Ruess Releases New Single “AhHa” from Grand Romantic

    Jayvee
    27 Apr 2015 | 11:44 am
    Nate Ruess, frontman for Fun., took to email to update fans on his current solo project and released new single, “AhHa.” The singer noted that lots of assumptions were being made about his upcoming solo album, Grand Romantic, as a result of lead single “Nothing Without Love,” which is why he offered up “ahHa” as a means to “keep people guessing” about the sound. Ruess went on to explain his love of “ahHa” by saying, “It’s 3 or 4 songs rolled into one, and in my mind, the perfect opening track for the whole album (the…

  • Nick Cave’s “Red Right Hand,” Reimagined as a Dr. Seuss Book

    Tom Hawking
    6 May 2015 | 12:00 pm
    The Internet can be the worst place, but occasionally something comes along that makes you glad that it exists — like, for instance, this Dr Seuss-style rendering of Nick Cave’s “Red Right Hand.” These are the things you’d never get to see if it wasn’t for the web — they’d be in someone’s desk drawer, or something the artist’s friends laughed at in delight over drinks. Instead, the whole world can appreciate the work of one DrFaustusAU (who previously gave us a Seussian interpretation of The Call of Chthulu). This, which we discovered…

On shutting down their services, Grooveshark stated: We failed to secure licenses from rights holders for the vast amount of music on the service. That…

    Errol Brown, the frontman of Hot Chocolate, died in his Bahamas home after a battle with liver cancer, at 71 years old. Brown formed the acclaimed British soul band with Tony Wilson in the 70s. They were best known for the infectious track, “You Sexy Thing,” which was a chart topper across three decades. The band got their start when they were signed to Apple records after they recorded a reggae version of John Lennon’s “Give Peace a Chance.” Though they started early in the decade, it wasn’t until later in the 70s that they reached the height of their…

    Jenny Hval, apart from releasing T-Shirts devoted to “soft dicks” that win the hearts of Flavorwire editors, has, in anticipation of the June 9 release of her album Apocalypse, girl, shared the music video for “The Battle Is Over.” The video is directed by Hval’s previous collaborator Zia Anger (she directed the “Innocence is Kinky” video). The humorously titled “The Battle Is Over” revisits old-fashioned tropes of domestic femininity that are to this day still quite gendered. It sees a series of women — among whom Canadian…

    Speculation on celebrities’ sexualities is usually futile and almost always very murky territory. Two progressive arguments often butt heads while people grapple with exactly how much they should consider the personal lives of public figures: a. that celebrities have a right to sexual privacy, versus b. that celebrities are in a higher position to induce change by killing the idea of the closet — and, more provocatively — killing the idea that, by revealing they’re dating outside of a hetero-norm, they’re automatically sexually classifiable. Miley Cyrus — who for…

    We’ve been thoroughly enchanted by the glimmering electro-pop stylings of Los Angeles-based duo MONOGEM (songwriter/vocalist Jen Hirsh and producer Scott Smith) ever since we were first introduced to their smooth and uplifting vibes last year. In fact, with only a relatively concise EP to their name, we’re ready to label them as one of the hottest up-and-coming bands in the country. Of course, you don’t have to just take our word for it. After all, they’ve already been embraced by tastemakers both near and far. Pigeons and Planes raved that the duo “create a modern dance party…

Publicly speaking, not much is known of these newbies other than that while on holiday for a week on the west cost of the North Island, they rented a house, divided the 4 rooms up into separate studios and, “Got it Bad” was born, right there in the sun-room next to the kitchen. With a groovy rhythm section and vocals reminiscent of Electric Guest one thing I know is that my ears have got it bad and can’t wait to hear more. In the mean time I’ll be keeping a close eye on…

    Matthew Hickey
    5 May 2015 | 4:00 am
    Aside from the color of the vinyl, the center labels were the first things I noticed when I opened my copy of Mikal Cronin‘s latest album MCIII. Side A features a simple black label with subtle gradient variations marked by concentric circles. Side B is the mirror image but in white. The vinyl itself is clear and – tellingly – there’s a significant amount of dead wax on Side A. So, even without having read a bio, interview, or any other press release, there are enough visual cues to mark MCIII as an album with two carefully delineated, distinct parts. And,…

    7 May 2015 | 1:00 am
    Charles M. Schulz (1922–2000) believed that the key to cartooning was to take out the extraneous details and leave in only what’s necessary. For 50 years, from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, Schulz wrote and illustrated Peanuts, the single most popular and influential comic strip in the world. In all, 17,897 strips were published, making it “arguably the longest story ever told by one human being,” according to Robert Thompson, professor of popular culture at Syracuse University.

First thing would be to practice more. If you’re aware of your sound, it should get a little bit better every time you play.

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:41 pm
    Thursday, April 2 Ready Room In their last two St. Louis performances, South Carolina’s Shovels and Rope mesmerized packed houses at Off Broadway, first while opening for Dawes, and six months later as headliners. On April 2nd the husband-and-wife duo of Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent move their passionate country stomp to The Ready Room. They’re overdue for a bigger space to contain the power of their lusty, spontaneous act and the fevered response from their fans. Sweeping the 2013 Americana Music Awards with their second album, “O’ Be Joyful,” the pair are touring to support…

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:37 pm
    Demetri Martin’s show at the Pageant on March 26 opened on a somewhat realer note than he might have been anticipating. As he eased into his greetings on-stage, he asked the gathered crowd what was new in St. Louis these days. That was his first mistake. His second mistake was waiting long enough for someone to actually answer. “They’re killing black people!” some clearly-overserved patron bellowed from stage right. “Wow, um… I did not prepare any material for that,” Martin said, and whether his awkwardness was genuine or it was simple showmanship was…

  • Millage For Mayfield

    Jan Ramsey
    6 May 2015 | 4:53 pm
    “The Guys”: Ronald Markham and Irvin Mayfield. You have to hand it to Irvin Mayfield: this talented musician knows how to raise money and how to influence the right people. Along with his lifelong friend, Ronald Markham, Mayfield has managed to do an amazing amount for music in his hometown with the money he and Markham have raised for various projects (and they are many, and they have undeniably benefited the community). Their obvious talent; young, vibrant and charismatic looks and demeanors; their passion for promoting their projects (and for Mayfield, promoting himself) have…
  • The Changing Face of Jazz Fest

    29 Apr 2015 | 4:21 pm
    Going to Jazz Fest this weekend? I am. I missed two of the three days last weekend, alas, because I worked on Friday, and Saturday there was a monsoon. I travel to Jazz Fest on a scooter, and the old jalopy can’t take rain and floods, so like the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz who couldn’t be touched by water, yours truly, the Wicked Witch of The Fest, scurried back to the office to work on the May issue (post-Jazz Fest). Have to tell you, not being rained on and stuck in a flood of mud was okay by me. And I got a lot of work done. Mud galore and the Hot 8 Brass Band at Jazz…

    Yep, it’s the Jazz Fest: the big grand-daddy of music festivals rolls again this weekend. It’s changed from what it used to be, this is true. Stuff changes. But the general spirit is still there and will be for a long time, assuming Festival Productions can continue to balance the dyed-in-the-wool Louisiana music and cultural stuff with the AEG-booked big-name acts that keep heads coming through the gates. One thing we can say for sure is that despite the bitching and moaning that we’ve been hearing for years regarding the change in the talent pool, the adjustment in the types of acts…

    It’s been raining for a week. Take a deep breath. Hold. Release slowly. Just over a week left for Jazz Fest. It’s imminent… The Jazz Fest staff just moved out to the Fairgrounds. Hopefully, the weather gods will cooperate. The poor French Quarter Fest suffered through a weekend of rain, and although it was a great French Quarter Festival, attendance was way down. That’s the problem with outdoor festivals: you’re at the mercy of the elements. It’s rained every day since last week, and as I write this, I hear thunder heralding another very wet afternoon and evening. In fact, we…
  • Shocking Scientology

    Jan Ramsey
    8 Apr 2015 | 6:50 pm
    The church of Scientology was skewered recently in the recent HBO documentary “Going Clear.” If you don’t subscribe to HBO, you’ve missed a lot of very good documentary reportage, including the shocking conclusion to “The Jinx” which pretty effectively outed sociopath multi-millionaire Robert Durst as the murderer that he probably is. Knowing very little about Scientology, but having heard about the organization for years, I thought it would be an interesting introduction to the religion it purports to be. It appears to be a money-making cult that has sucked many millions of…

  • The Tallest Man On Earth: Dark Bird Is Home

    admin
    14 Apr 2015 | 8:03 pm
    Kristian Matsson starts out in familiar territory on this one, the title track to The Tallest Man On Earth’s next album, Dark Bird Is Home. “Sagres” felt like a “Song For Zula”-esque turn toward echo and synth-washed sounds, but the Swedish troubadour goes back inward this round. Until the coda, that is: an unexpected, jubilant rush that makes the previous solo-acoustic minutes feel like a contemplative run-up toward some kind of assured transcendence. Underneath any such pomp and circumstance, though, is a fine bit of indelible melody from the…

    14 Apr 2015 | 7:22 pm
    “The Glow” was the first track among four on our introduction to Esmé Patterson last spring. And while that unfolding arrangement from Woman to Woman did the tune justice in studio form, this live take — featuring Paleo‘s David Strackany on a ramshackle drum kit — lets the cut breathe further, filling it with even more awkward pauses and dynamic nuance. This tune was inspired by Brian Wilson’s “Caroline, No,” and there are other men-penned love songs that warranted a fresh take on her debut here. Patterson & co. are on tour with…

    Even without knowing the album’s unabashed bohemian mission statement, words like “celestial” spring to mind on these tracks from Portland’s Johanna Warren. But they also conjure up something more personal and haunting than what she calls a dedication to the phases of the moon. “Figure 8,” “True Colors,” and “Less Traveled” aim inward as much as they pull from the heavens, recalling the intimacy of Nick Drake, Sibylle Baier, and Sam Beam, as much as broader-minded luminaries like Joni Mitchell and a long list of British…

Brosseau says, If the drums were coming across too loudly, the drummer would have to move his kit a plank or two of the stage back from the mic. If the bass needed to come up, the bass moved a plank towards the mic… There’d be no overdubbing, no raising or…

    Focus groups, demographics, overnight ratings all have value in providing data to those who like to make decisions based on data.  But once in a while, somebody makes a decision based on a gut feeling and enjoys success beyond anyone’s imagination. Case in point: A young performer, Chris Janson, who is becoming a regular at the Grand Ole Opry is introduced to 4400 folks when he walks onstage. They’ve never heard of him, because he’s had no significant commercial success. When he walks off, about 4 out of every 5 times, he gets a standing ovation. He is genuinely entertaining – a…

  • HEALTH’S “NEW COKE” MP3 WILL MAKE YOU PUKE

    Andy Fenstermaker
    24 Apr 2015 | 10:24 pm
    30 years ago today, Coca Cola launched its ill-fated New Coke. While that was a major fiasco, I sat down to determine if, thirty years later, the newly released song of the same name by LA nosie-rock outfit HEALTH would follow suit. I had pretty much discounted HEALTH as somewhat of a fad. Their eponymous debut in 2007 was lauded by many, myself included, despite it being a bit brazen and eccentric (and, at times, somewhat unbearable to anyone over 23). And the remixes that followed were, and still are, truly sublime. Their follow-up, Get Color I largely ignored for whatever reason.
  • Best Album of 2015 So Far: Eternal Death’s New Self-Titled LP

    Andy Fenstermaker
    28 Feb 2015 | 8:07 am
    I see quite a contradiction here. Elin Berlin is the face behind Swedish blog Youth Knows No Pain. In it, for the most part, she seems to maintain a sunny and bright disposition. But things aren’t always as they seem; by night she records under the moniker Eternal Death, a meditative project with Johan Angergård (Acid House Kings, Club 8, The Legends). Eternal Death sounds like a bad 80s hair band containing ugly dudes with big hair and painted faces. Not true: instead Eternal Death poses a equally confounding clash-of-expectations. Elin’s vocals are sweet and somewhat upbeat, albeit not…
  • Hayden Drops New Single, “Hey Love” – New LP out Soon!

    Andy Fenstermaker
    26 Feb 2015 | 7:37 pm
    My love of Hayden’s music goes way back. Back, in fact, twenty years to his sophomore release, Everything I Long For. I’ve always been a fan of his mopey Canadian folk rock. As a twenty-year career will do, his sound has evolved quite drastically. Still with a hint of sadness, modern Hayden tracks are more produced, much cleaner, and with an elevated sophistication that comes with age and experience. “Hey Love”, off his forthcoming 2015 LP, is a quintessential example of this. Though the sadness and longing remain in Hayden’s vocals, he has matured both lyrically and artistically.

Songs siding on more subtlety, like “Raindrops” hint of danish artists like Mew and Oh No Ono while holding onto a…

Consistent with recent research, AM/FM radio continues to benefit from the in-car environment, with roughly half of respondents saying that most or all of their radio listening takes place in the car. Overall, survey respondents were almost twice as likely to say they had increased (18%) than decreased (10%) their AM/FM radio…

    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…

    David Erickson
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:36 pm
    Increases in off-air (+16%) and digital (+9%) revenues were almost enough to offset decreases in spot (-3%) and network (-4%) revenues last year, as overall radio revenues slipped by 1% to slightly more than $17.5 billion, per the RAB. Auto dealers/dealer groups/manufacturers comprised the top-spending category, but cut spending by 2%. Four of the top 10 categories increased spending: #2 communications/cellular (+1%); #4 healthcare (+4%); #5 professional services (+4%); and #8 insurance companies (+3%). Meanwhile, AT&T ranked as the top-spending advertiser, followed by Comcast Xfinity…

  • The challenges of running a drop-in singing group (and why you shouldn’t start one)

    4 May 2015 | 2:00 am
    Some people run ‘drop-in’ singing sessions. People can drop in on any session they want, there is no commitment and no signing up for a ‘season’It’s a nice idea: no commitment, no pressure, all very fun, sociable and informal. But there are plenty of good reasons why groups like this are hard to sustain. Here are ten of them.Most choirs and singing groups:meet on a regular basis (usually weekly); have a rehearsal of between one and two hours; have a core of members who attend for many years; run in blocks of sessions (called ‘seasons’ or ‘terms’); ask singers to commit to a…

It turns out that there are several.When we perform as singers in a group, there are all sorts of things we have to focus on. The worst thing we can do is to “zone out”, get totally lost in the music and start daydreaming.At first it can all seem overwhelming, rather like when we first learn to drive a car. But over time…

But it might not suit everyone.photo by Dave PearceHere are five reasons why it might not be such a good idea for you.If you are a singer who agrees with any of the following, then joining a choir might not be right for you.1. “I love to just belt out loud” Singing in a choir is about blending in with others so you won’t often get the chance to belt out loud unless the whole of your section is instructed to do so.2. “I get put easily off when someone sings a harmony to what I’m singing” Most choirs sing in three- or four-part…

Hailing from Nates, France, Candids are here with just that – a new EP of pure, unadulterated indie pop, that should be soundtracking many a rooftop and beach party in the coming months if we’ve got anything to do with it.

    Some lovely, shimmery shoegaze to kick the week off in the right way. Warm are an NY-based five piece I stumbled across over the weekend, and hearteningly enough, they’d already done most of the work I would have had to do to describe their sound just through the single word they chose for their name. To add a little more though: the smooth reverberating glissandos and huge walls of fuzz guitars that characterise the tracks on their self-titled EP (released at the end of last month) recall the early Smashing Pumpkins, whilst the juxtaposed male and female 90’s emo vocals tweak the…

Atheist Money is Stafford’s first new release in two years, and secures his place as one of Scotland’s most innovative musicians, layering a catchy guitar riff over complex rhythms and squeaks, and one cool-as-fuck vocal line.

    by Nick Stubblefield The Gerald Clayton Trio played a dynamic and thoughtful set of what Clayton called "originals, arrangements, and de-rangements" last Tuesday at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Lincoln Center to an enthusiastic crowd. The young Netherlands-born, SoCal-raised pianist was joined by a pair of jazz giants in the likes of bassist John Patitucci and drummer Bill Stewart.   Stepping into Dizzy's, located right beside Columbus Circle, it feels like you're in the heart of the city - and that heart is pumping pure liquid jazz. With floor-to-ceiling windows…

    by Nick Stubblefield Photo by Stephen Pisano In his still-young career, Vijay Iyer has amassed an impressive set of credentials, and is known for pushing creative boundaries beyond what's generally accepted as jazz. Personally, I'd heard little of Vijay's music before, so when I stepped into the Jazz Standard to catch his trio last Wednesday, I had little idea of what to expect. To Iyer's credit, he makes music unlike any I've ever heard.  Iyer was joined on stage, as usual, by Stephan Crump on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums. Crump was the standout,…

    Somehow, I missed last week's announcement that Julia Wolfe, co-founder of Bang on a Can, won this year's Pulitzer Prize for her oratorio Anthracite Fields, inspired by the coal miners near where she grew up Pennsylvania. With this award, Julia becomes the second of the three BOAC founders (after David Lang) as well as the second woman in three years, to win the Pulitzer. And, with last year's winning composition, John Luther Adams' Become Ocean, having been released on BOAC's Canteloupe Music label, there seems to be little question that the award has completed…
  • Duke @116

    Peter Matthews
    29 Apr 2015 | 4:17 am
    Duke Ellington, who was born this day in 1899, was by any measure the greatest composer this country has ever produced. Over a career that spanned more than half of a century, Ellington composed more than 1,000 works, many of which belonged more in concert halls than jazz clubs (which is where they ended up; see below.) In an era when jazz wasn't considered "real" music, Ellington, through his charm and sheer productivtity, proved otherwise. (Ellington was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 1965 but no award was given; he was posthumously awarded a special Pulitzer in 1999.)…

    I guess it says something about a certain brand when I now own three of them. Not ukuleles loaned to me on test, three I actually bought for myself. So to compliment my Concert and Tenor models, a Baritone scale instrument has joined the fold. The Pono MB-e.First things first, let's not pre-judge this review, but it is fair to say I am a big fan of Pono instruments. They represent to me the link between the upper end of intermediates from China (these too are made in the far east in Indonesia) and the higher end handmade instruments from Hawaii and elsewhere in the USA.

Here we meet Analogue Wave, an Electronic duo from Dublin Ireland, comprised of Del Chaney (Vocalist & Songwriter) & Andrew ’Gint’ Sneyd (Producer & Songwriter). The band’s distinct style has roots in a variety of genres including dub, electronica, synth and rock.

  • Inspiration of Life

    Edward Reid
    3 May 2015 | 1:15 pm
    Syleena JohnsonIf you ask an artist from where he or she draw inspiration, most of the time they will point toward life experience. If you need to write about something, prose or poetry, the best place to find inspiration is life itself. The majority of artists, and those who enjoy art, feel art imitates life. However, Oscar Wilde, opined in his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that, "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life". To go further, he stated "what is found in life and nature is not what is really there, but is that which artists have taught people to find there, through art".

    Flyleaf"Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes"The quote above by American writer/counselor Hugh Prather seems to fit the majority of people today, and any day. We all struggle and sometimes fight against change for years, then when it comes and we feel we have adapted, we are faced with the possibility of making more changes. Some say that change is good for everyone. That might be true in some cases but not when a negative change comes into our lives. Good changes are almost always associated with personal growth. At some time in youth, all of us have faced, or will…

    CommonAs a person who grew up in the inner city Chicago during the 1970’s, my parents, and surrounding group of influential family members and friends, passed along wisdom not found in schools. Most from a similar background understand and appreciate the wisdom given to us by our circle of influence. One of the terms I heard constantly in my household was “common sense”. In many instances those words were not used in a positive way: “Didn’t common sense tell you the right choice?” Of course common sense itself does not possess any abilities to effect change, but the parental point…

You can't truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.Several years ago as I started working in the newspaper industry, a client suggested that I read a book by Zig Ziglar called See You at the Top.

    Azealia BanksI am always amazed at some of the statements people make in public. Sometimes very derogatory, and based on race, religious beliefs and sexual orientation, people are prone to say things that offend others. Now that social media has become the preferred mode of communication, it seems like more folks have found the courage to say anything they feel, regardless the pain their statements may cause others.

    6 May 2015 | 10:30 am
    BV:// The initially Chicago-based indie rock band Young Jesus released their debut albumHome in 2012, and were basically ready to break up not long after that until frontman John Rossiter moved to LA and ended up writing its followup. He says the album is "the product of one of those heavy moments of confusion and depression," adding, "Essentially, I thought I knew a lot, I realized I knew nothing. Classic angst."Home's followup is called Grow / Decompose, and is due out next week (5/13) via Hellhole Supermarket (pre-order). That's the artwork above, with a picture of Rossiter in drag as one…

The song highlights their grungy, dark, and disheveled punk rock they dub "Witch Punk." No Hello was recorded to tape in a few days with a DIY living room setup.Cassette Pre-Order

After the band had all but broken up following the release of their 2012 debut Home, frontman John Rossiter moved to Los Angeles, recruited two more members, and got back to writing, and their long-gestating sophomore LP Grow / Decompose is finally out next month. They’ve already shared a few singles, and today, we get to hear album closer “Dirt.” All of their songs come across as deeply felt and anthemic, but at eight minutes, “Dirt” is a…

    Playing fast doesn’t mean there is no emotion, and having more ‘feeling’ is not a good excuse to never play fast. I’ve probably ruffled a few feathers with that statement, but I believe it to be true. If your thing is playing slowly, then that’s fine; if you like to play fast then that is […]

    admin

    I shouldn’t have to write any long introductions when it comes to Oasis. This Britpop band came out with smash hit after smash hit from the years of 1991 to 2009. Their split made headlines when Liam and Noel fell out – something they did quite a bit. They just couldn’t work alongside one another in peace anymore and had to call it quits. Fans were devastated and ever since have discussed a comeback.   Original Source   Noel made it clear that he’d only ever reform for the money, and it seems this is one thing the brothers can agree on. While Noel Gallagher’s High…

  • ALBUM REVIEW : My Morning Jacket – ‘The Waterfall’

    Eleanor Wallace
    6 May 2015 | 11:00 am
    This ‘My Morning Jacket’ review was written by Eleanor Wallace, a GIGsoup contributor. Though ‘Evil Urges’ and ‘Circuital’ to most MMJ fans are like feasts, unwavering in rock genius, ‘The Waterfall’—their 7th studio album—is like a re-birth. Granted, the tracks have more of a common sound, or ‘flow’, than those of previous albums; you won’t find tracks that are so distant in personality like ‘Librarian’ and ‘Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt. 2′ that they could be two different bands. However,…

It is the band’s 50th anniversary and some will see it as a fitting tribute to one of most iconic rock ‘n’ roll bands ever to grace this planet. The question is, what can you expect from The Who live experience? Probably this … My Generation : We will all sing-a-long to the lines…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : Jacco Gardner – ‘Hypnophobia’

    The Accidental Journalist
    6 May 2015 | 9:11 am
    There is much to admire about Dutch musician ‘Jacco Gardner’. Firstly, his 60’s influenced sound is to be applauded as it effortlessly plays homage to a time where the creation of music actually required a modicum of talent. This consideration brings me on to the second point. To describe ‘Jacco Gardner’ as a multi-instrumentalist barely even scratches the surface. The artist plays all but the drums on his sophomore release ‘Hypnophobia’, confirming his master-musician moniker. The above two factors combined with a canny knack of being able to create a “nice melody” would…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : Django Django – ‘Born Under Saturn’

    The Accidental Journalist
    5 May 2015 | 10:13 am
    Such was the success of the 2012 ‘Django Django’s’ self-titled debut there seemed little rush in releasing a hastily recorded looky-likey follow-up. Certainly much of the debut is still as favoured on Radio play-lists now as it was back when it dropped; testament to a well appreciated and acclaimed album. And so after an 18 month period of methodically recording their sophomore LP ‘Born Under Saturn’ we are surprisingly bequeathed with much of the same. Certainly the bands ability to construct likeable melodies and obvious harmonies remain, but it’s the lack of musical progress…
  • Kentish duo ‘Slaves’ prove that punk might not be dead after all

    This ‘Slaves’ review was written by Gareth Bryant, a GIGsoup contributor. Ever since the demise of The Clash, The Sex Pistols and the class of 1977, people have dismissively uttered the phrase “punk is dead”. However, out of the bland wasteland of 21st century pop come ‘Slaves’, living proof that this wonderful re-invention of punk is every bit as alive as it was nearly 40 years ago. The band have today announced news of their forthcoming LP ‘Are You Satisfied?’ and are about to hit London for the first of two nights at London’s Scala; proof, if required, that this heady…

    Photo Credit: Ben Bentley Dry The River became unplugged as their set at Live At Leeds ran into technical difficulties.   After a powerful start with 'Alarms In The Heart' from their latest album, their second song, 'Family' was cut off half way through.    After a brief deliberation and a lot of confusion, bassist Scott Miller stepped to the front of the stage and shouted; "We broke the venue! We f***** the PA! So, if you're really quiet, we can try and play acoustic whilst they try to fix it".   The packed out 2,300 capacity venue…

  • How to Network As an Intern

    Katie Reilly
    20 Mar 2015 | 6:24 am
    I have a secret for you: Most people are willing to help students and interns. In fact, interning is a perfect excuse to meet with and learn from as many people in an organization as possible because people will generally be willing to sit down with you, discuss their role and how they got it, and give you advice on reaching your own goals. But, I have another secret for you that may not make you quite as happy: No one is going to make this happen for you (unless you have a really incredible manager, in which case go thank that person immediately).Photo by Andrew Hitchcock (CC by SA 2.0)See,…

  • Innovation And Uniqueness Meet With Zeus The Songwriting Instructor

    Steven Fies
    15 Apr 2015 | 10:08 pm
     It seems like a lot of people have taken a good look at the music industry lately and they definitely don’t like what they see. Record sales are lower and lower each day and artists have to rely on their ability to sell merchandise and tickets for their shows. This is something that leaves a lot of aspiring musicians feeling discouraged, but the biggest problem in the music industry is not the industry itself. The problem is that most artists seem to be stuck in the idea that they have to “stay true” to their art and create music that they like. This is the reason why 99% of the…

    Sweeping through some arpeggios with my original DH pickFor the past fifteen years, I have been extremely sensitive about the types of guitar picks I use when I play. In fact, using a particular type of guitar pick is so important to me that I'll normally go to just about any length to have my Jazz III Ultex (when playing electric guitar, at least). You can read all about that in the article I wrote about guitar picks a little over two years ago.Enter the Original Dragon's Heart Guitar Pick.Discovering Dragon Heart Guitar PicksShortly before NAMM, Dragon's Heart guitar picks got in touch with…
  • The Revival of Pop Rock Music with Harrison Nida

    Steven Fies
    3 Feb 2015 | 9:56 am
    When I first learned to play guitar, the very first song I learned to play was What's My Age Again by Blink 182.  Back in those days, I couldn't get enough of bands like Blink 182, Green Day, Nirvana, and Weezer.  In fact, I still can't get enough of those bands, because I've always truly enjoyed their sound and have tons of nostalgia from listening to them in my youth.  This is true even as my musical tastes have evolved and changed through the years.  The only problem is that it's difficult to find new artists still producing decent work in this genre.Enter Harrison…

    The Department Of Justice is rumored to be looking into Apple’s business practices concerning streaming music. Why would the DOJ be investigating? According to The Verge, Apple has been pushing the music labels to remove the free tier from streaming services. As Spotify negotiates to renew their licenses with music labels, Apple is lobbying music labels to not include a license for a free music tier anymore. If successful, this would greatly reduce the competition when Apple releases the new Beats Music. To date, Spotify is the most successful streaming service with 60 million users. 15…

    European regulators are investigating Apple for its plan to bundle music streaming with its existing iTunes platform. The speculation is that Apple will release their music streaming service, which is based on Beats Music, in June. Assuming subscription only, with no ad-supported tier, European regulators are “said to be concerned that the company will use its size, relationships and influence to persuade labels to abandon free, ad-supported services such as Spotify, which depend on licenses with music companies for their catalogues.” Spotify argues that its free ad-supported…

  • Rhythm Guitar vs Lead Guitar

    Francesco Settesoldi
    28 Apr 2015 | 6:42 am
    Rhythm Guitar always preceeds lead guitar. It is a common issue for beginners to focus on lead guitar without knowing how to strum.Yep, some people can play a bit of a solo. A small piece of it. Maybe they can play the correct notes. But when they are with a group of people and they are asked to "play something", they just don't know what to do. Because no one cares about listening to a "solo" which is completely out of context.Rhythm Guitar always preceeds lead guitar. It is much better to strum a few chords without knowing the scales, than to know the scales without mastering strumming…

That is why I believe it is of the utmost importance to make it FUN right from the start! Here are three ideas on how you can make the guitar more fun to play in your daily life.1) Learn easy songs on a single string. Have you ever felt frustrated when trying to make sense out of all of those different strings? There are lots of cool YouTube videos out there that can teach you both…
  • Guitar daily exercise routine (for intermediates)

    Francesco Settesoldi
    7 Apr 2015 | 3:48 pm
    Here's a daily guitar exercise routine I've created especially for intermediate players. There is not an absolute way to define what an "intermediate" is. For example, I am an advanced player when it comes to rhythm guitar/singing, but I am an intermediate at blues soloing and a beginner at jazz. Which basically means I won't dare playing jazz if you put me in front of an audience, and I won't even indulge into extreme soloing, which goes beyond my actual skills. But give me a guitar and a microphone and I can Pop/Rock you for hours with absolute confidence.If you do have the ability to…

    How to Sing Better

    Andy Barnes

    What does it mean to learn to sing naturally? It’s a great question for one, but it also raises another question – why would you want to sing naturally, and what happens if you don’t? Also if you can sing naturally, then you also must be able to sing unnaturally as well! The word “naturally” is used in many ways to convey something good, and in singing it is no different. If you can learn to sing naturally, then you should enjoy a lifetime of singing. You don’t have to lose your voice or have your range reduced as you get older. In this article, I want to…

    Speech level singing, if you haven’t heard of it, is a technique that teaches that singing should be as natural and easy as speaking. Now, I think we can all agree that speaking is a natural and easy thing to do, and while I do believe that you can sing freely and easily, there are some things about singing that differ greatly to speaking, which we will explore later on. While speech level singing has certainly been around for a while (at least 30 years), and there is no doubt it has benefited many people, there are gaps in speech level singing itself that I would like to address in…

    Check out this awesome short film ‘State Zero’ in a post apocalyptic Stockholm! Every time I see an American disaster film, I think of how much cooler it must be for an American to see a New York in ruins or how a tidal wave drowns Washington. Now  Swedes got the same chance. (SEE THE VIDEO BELOW!) For the brand new short film State Zero is the Stockholm who plays the main role. An abandoned, destroyed and overgrown Stockholm where some kind of danger lurking in the dark ruins. Four soldiers to be on a routine mission in Zone 3, somewhere in the Globe area.

    I learnt a valuable lesson while conducting this interview. Never, ever draw up your questions while you are suffering from a hangover induced by consuming too many Old Fashioneds. You’ll misread place names, ask stupid questions, and generally make a flaming tit of yourself. Luckily, King of Cats, nom de musique of one Max Levy, is an understanding chap and forgave me my abhorrent misdemeanors. He’s from Brighton, not Bristol. Just last month, Levy released his second album under the King of Cats moniker in the last sixth months alone, and is already prepping a third album of…

    Atlanta has one of the most vibrant music scenes in the United States, boasting acts from crunk to country. Outkast, India Arie, Mastodon, and the Black Lips, all call Atlanta home.  The Dogwood City will play host to the upcoming Shaky Knees Music Festival from May 8th through the 10th, and I, for one, cannot wait. I intend to take the midnight train to Georgia, fill up on Gladys Knight’s Chicken & Waffles, and rock the fuck out to as many bands as possible. But with more than 80 bands performing over three days, how might one best decide which shows to prioritize? That, dear reader,…

    Debut Single 17 Year Old Russian Singer/Songwriter Sarah Persephona hails from St. Petersburg, plays jaunty and catchy guitar pop music under the moniker Angelic Milk, is releasing her debut single ‘IDK How’ via PNKSLM Recordings on May 22nd, and is only bloody 17. It’s a youthful track, full of exuberance, and that weird mixture of naivety and maturity that some young artists can tap into. It’s pop simplicity is a perfect antidote to the over produced dreck that listeners are often bombarded with, as the track harks back to a time when all one needed was a vocal,…

    It’s been a long three years since L.A. based DIY indie quintet Young Jesus released their debut album Home. Thankfully they return on May 13th with the pretty damn sweet follow-up, Grow / Decompose via Hellhole Supermarket. The album consists of low key anthems, if that is even possible. There’s no bluster and posing, but there is high emotion and an abundance of earnestness, but also a surplus of modesty.

  • How Crazy Egg Tripled Their Email List and Increased Brand Loyalty

    Kristen Dunleavy
    5 May 2015 | 7:01 am
    When Kathryn Aragon began her role as content manager at analytics company Crazy Egg two years ago, she faced a big problem: Crazy Egg’s email subscribers weren’t happy about getting emails every day. Their irritation turned into a negative brand perception that needed to change – and fast. Crazy Egg’s blog, The Daily Egg, was producing a slew of great content, so in the beginning daily emails made sense. Kathryn’s job was to use email marketing to deliver that content, increase brand loyalty, and drive more traffic to Crazy Egg’s website while boosting its email list along…

  • The Anatomy of a Good Video

    Jason Moore
    29 Apr 2015 | 12:17 pm
    Video is great. Why? Because it lets you show and tell, rather than just tell. And that showing and telling can go a long way towards marketing your business. According to a study by EyeView, they found an increase of 80 percent in conversions from visitors watching a video on a landing page – and that’s only one of the many benefits of using video. However, making a video is more than winging it with your laptop camera, or whipping out your iPhone and recording something on a whim (although, I will admit that iPhones have pretty good cameras and mics – but that’s a topic for…

  • 3 Ways to Become a Morning Person

    Sydney
    29 Apr 2015 | 6:50 am
    I was one of those people who woke up grumpy. Every. Single. Morning. Until someone pointed it out to me. At the time I found the fact that another person noticed my foul mood to be super embarrassing, however, now I see it as an amazing catalyst for personal growth. At that moment, I made the decision to become a morning person and I have been for 3 years and going strong! In order to change your attitude and behavior, you’ll have to change the way you feel about mornings. You’ll need to get to the bottom of why you wake up on the wrong side of the bed on a consistent basis.
  • Broiled Bok Choy with Balsamic Reduction

    Sydney
    21 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    Broiled bok choy is fast and far from furious. It takes 5 minutes to make and uses only 6 ingredients. 3 of those being salt, pepper, and olive oil. Yes, this is simple stuff. I find that the older I get, the more I prefer simple food. I think it is because I gravitate towards quality over quantity, and the simpler the food, the more apparent it is how much thought went into what I’m tasting. A simple marinara at an Italian restaurant is a great example. I’ve had my fair share of lousy pasta sauces that taste overly sweet, salty beyond compare, or metallic. But I’ll…

She was at the market gathering 8-10 bunches of bananas and was asked what plans she had for them. She answered with dreams of banana bread and smoothies. What she didn’t list was banana soft serve ice cream. When the suggestion was made, her eyes filled with question and wonder, and proceeded to inquire how such wizardry could be conjured in the kitchen. If there is one person in this beautiful world that doesn’t know about this technique, then it is worth a blog…

We haven’t been getting any rain this season in Southern California, but hopefully that will change soon. When the weather shifts from winter to spring, I tend to snack more and sit down to larger meals less. When I spring-snack, I want it to be delicious and satisfying. The other day, I came up with an appetizer or snack that I think is perfect for that winter/spring transition: sweet potato crostini. I made you some crostini, but instead of bread slices, I used roasted sweet…

  • SLUT SHAMING, A SOCIETAL SYMPTOM?

    Hot Girls Wanted Slut shaming is more than a buzzword. It’s female sexuality weaponized against women. Or at least that’s what it used to be. The word “slut”, and other colorful terms that are generally used in a similar vein, is increasingly becoming a general term for any woman one may find reason to insult, regardless of her sexual history and experience, either real or imagined. The latest high profile example of this is the case of Mo’ne Davis, the first female little league pitcher to lead her team down a trail of victory, and the Bloomberg University…

  • Mikal Cronin – MCIII

    Nick Robinson
    6 May 2015 | 9:51 pm
    When everyone’s trying to get on the cutting edge, sometimes the most kickass thing you can do is to go the other way. Mikal Cronin probably made his name playing bass in the heavy, scungey, fuzzy, badass, clinically awesome Ty Segall Band playing bass and singing backup. The dude can rock out with the best of them, but just like Segall himself, there’s a restless pop-rocker ready to burst. Cronin’s three solo albums, Mikal Cronin, MCII & MCIII, are defined by the kind of hook-laded, sweet yet loaded with riffage, tune-age that hasn’t really clogged the mainstream since the 90s.
  • My Morning Jacket – The Waterfall

    Nick Robinson

    Every new MMJ album is something wonderfully different. They always seem to have a direction to push in that they haven’t tried before, some creative boundary ready to be tempted by Jim James’ insatiable muse. The Waterfall continues that tradition but it’s also perhaps their most cohesive album since their 2006 breakthrough Z.Although I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s their best in that time. Evil Urges has its haters but there are some ripping tracks on that one. Plus I’m a huge fan of Circuital. To be fair, though, I’m a huge fan of everything this band does and ranking and…

I don't feel for him in the sense that he's had to listen to this music, but because he's had no choice and this period of hip hop bliss was capped off with Action Bronson's Mr Wonderful.If you ain't know, Bronson was a chef, now a rapper and one of the very best in the game right now. Ever since he switched up the career path and started rapping seriously, which was about five or six years ago, he's been serving up mixtapes on…

    Day in the Life of a Commercial Musician

  • The Many Hats of an Indie Musician

    Michael Musco
    1 May 2015 | 4:01 pm
    To be an independent musician there are a lot of hats you have to wear. Mainly because with music their is a lot of potential revenue streams available. To make music your full time job, it is very important that you try to maximize as many of those streams as possible. For me, my main source of revenue comes from licensing, and I think that is a very valuable area for musicians to focus their efforts. The problem is that what works well in the commercial world doesn't always translate well into the entertainment world.The problem comes in the nature of the two types of music. Commercial…

    Michael Musco
    19 Apr 2015 | 12:03 pm
    Over the past couple weeks, I've had a thought running through my head that I can't seem to shake. It's an elusive question, and is a serious mental exercise. The idea of what makes a perfect mix. It seems like a pretty basic question, but the more I thought about it the more I realized the answer to that question is more of an enigma then something that could be easily answered. If you've read a few posts of mine, you will know one thing about me, and that is I am kind of a numbers person. I'd say the reason I am that way is because numbers are quantifiable, and if you can make sense of…
  • 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…

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.

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…

    Making a momentous return to the world stage this week is Flux Pavilion, who’s back with a huge new track in the form of “International Anthem,” which features the distinctive vocal talents of London MC Doctor. Described as a “thundering widescreen showstopper,” the electro anthem was first previewed a couple of weeks ago and is now available to pre-order ahead of its May 18th release. Rooted firmly in dubstep, the cut boasts some interesting reggae elements and a couple pretty heavy drops. Of course, Flux’s signature wobbles, and a number of his other…

    Back with his first original of 2015 is Russian producer Arty, who has just released “Stronger” via Insomniac Records. The track will be appearing on his upcoming album, which is currently unnamed but due for release later this year. As the second cut from the disc (the first being “Up All Night”), “Stronger” boasts vocals from Ray Dalton, who previously made a name for himself on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us.” While decidedly more laidback than the album’s first single, it’s definitely an impressive tune,…

    It’s no secret that Avicii has a thing for soul singers. The song that transformed him into a household name, “Levels,” sampled an Etta James track, so it’s not too surprising that he’s going back to the genre for his latest effort, “Feeling Good.” A cover of Nina Simone’s 1965 song of the same name, Tim delivers a modern spin on the classic that keeps the original’s soul in tact while delivering a slick re-work. It’s a definite departure than what we’re used to hearing from the producer, as it’s not exactly…
