    Do you ever wonder how you’re faring with your online reach and influence? Maybe you need to stop and take a snapshot of where you stand. I call it your Internet Influence Index (or 3i for short). A 3i is a listing of your current number of friends, followers and other statistics that indicate how well you’re connecting with fans online. It’s a quick measurement of your Internet presence. I refer to it as a snapshot because, if you’re proactive at all online, the numbers will be in constant flux – hopefully in an upward direction. Of course, I need to emphasize…

Here are seven tips to get you started. To be a musician is to speak the language of music. When you think of yourself as a musical storyteller, your performances become lively and interesting.

    Miley Cyrus ran around on Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards nearly naked, and then flashing her nipple during a costume change. As the camera panned backstage, Miley failed to cover up and the broadcast quickly cut away to the crowd while she continued to talk. She then said, “What’s happening? Oh, sorry.” Throughout the show, she sang about smoking marijuana and during the final performance of the show – ok, lets stop here.

Reid knew he messed up. The story goes like this. Reid had signed her when he was the head at Island Def Jam and then dropped her.

    Unloading upon the ears of the disillusioned with the force of a Reverend A.W. Nix sermon, The Lord’s Revolver, by Nottingham/London two-piece Whisky Stain, sounds like Royal Blood having an existential crisis.

DIN Sync, as developed by Roland, is suddenly news again because of a rekindled interest in vintage gear. If you want to synchronize a TR-808 or a TB-303, DIN Sync is what you need.

But every measure of the business model is somehow framed around acquiring records. And it’s about passive consumption. We have to remember, though, that passive consumption is itself really the outlier. Until the dawn of recording, music only existed when you played it. Our current copyright and licensing system was first structured around sheet music. And that world never went away. Precise recordings can give you the experience of…

    Wynne Unit Band: It’s Over (Texas Prison Rodeo, 1980, Behind the Walls) Part of the appeal of prison soul albums lies in how a narrative of redemption is built into their very existence. They exist, whether intentionally or not, as rehabilitation projects, where inmates use music as a way of reconnecting with “legitimate” society. Whether that’s all a facade or not, it’s how most prison LPs are set up, this exemplary one out of Texas being no exception. The Guardian published a write-up about Wynne Unit and its musicians back in 2013 but this LP had long been on…

    Falling Stones: Come Back To Your Lover (Suriname, 196?, S/T) Of all the records I brought back from Paris, the Falling Stones LP ranks high simply because I marvel at how well this famed group from Surinam nailed the Stax sound. In particular, lead singer Louis Windzak does a mean Otis Redding, especially on this song, an original by the group that easily sounds like it could have been a cover of some Memphis single. Thanks to Sir Shambling’s Deep Soul Heaven, I learned that the reason there’s such a heavy Southern soul influence in Surinam had to do with the importation of…

    Satisfied '75
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:05 am
    To quote George Clinton, ‘funk is its own reward’. And, really, there is nothing funkier (in every sense of the word) than New Orleans — specifically, The Meters. The above video document is a blessing — a 30 minute film capturing the band live at the Saenger Theatre on Canal Street, interspersed with individual interviews with […]
  • Yo La Tengo :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

    Satisfied '75
    26 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    Yo La Tengo is unmistakable. Over the last 31 years, the Hoboken band has created a signature style, one that’s comprised of identifiable building blocks: Georgia Hubley’s hushed, husky voice and drumming, which balances a jazzy lilt and garage rock minimalism; James McNew’s insistently driving and melodic bass; Ira Kaplan’s cooing voice and rangy guitar […]

    Due to the prominence of acoustic guitar, Zachary Cale’s records have regularly been slotted into the folky category. And while the categorization is not entirely off the mark (the dude can fingerpick with the best of them), it’s only part of the story the Brooklyn-based songwriter is telling. Cale’s work has always been cannily crafted […]

    photos by Amanda Hatfield; words by Bill Pearis Tamaryn / Samantha Urbani @ LPR 8/28/2015 Tamaryn celebrated the release of her third album, Cranekiss, with a show at Le Poisson Rouge on Friday night. This was a completely different lineup of the band that I saw her with at Levitation Fest in May, and I was maybe not surprised but a little disappointed that Shaun Durkan, who cowrote and played on Cranekiss (and did the artwork), wasn't a part of the band on Friday. (He's a busy guy with his own group, Weekend.) Her band did a good job with the songs from the new album, though it will surely…

Like the past two days, it was stacked from start to finish with never more than a 15-minute period where there wasn't a good band playing. I only caught partial sets from Explosions in the Sky and The Lawrence Arms due to overlaps with other bands, but what I did see of both sounded great. 7Seconds were terrific (more on them in a second), but after that band into OFF! into Millencolin I was a little burnt…

The guy is a constant blur, and was bouncing from one side of the stage to the other at Saint Vitus on Sunday night (8/30). He is most definitely the lifeblood of the band, an absolute maniac who was shirtless and drenched in sweat just a few songs into their set. He also reminded me a bit of The Fall's Mark E Smith in that, even though he doesn't play an…

Mensa’s Fernandez designed tee bears a photo of political activist Assata Shakur, the late Tupac Shakur’s aunt who is currently living in exile in Cuba. Famous for pointing out injustices in the criminal justice system, the elder Shakur serves as a relevant and timely inspiration for Mensa, considering the rise in racially charged police brutality.

Discussing “the deep sense of peace” she felt playing a gay character while publicly honest about her own sexuality, Page did not hold back about her feelings on the industry praising her heterosexual peers for playing gay roles.

    August 29th, 2015.  A drunken fan plunges to his death at an Atlanta Braves game (vs. the New York Yankees).  The fan, Greg Murrey, fell from the upper deck while wildly screaming at Alex Rodriguez, who was stepping up to plate.  Murrey died almost instantly after hitting his head directly on concrete stairs 50 feet below, one of several deaths that have occurred at Turner Field over the years. Result: The Braves game is momentarily delayed, then resumed after Murrey is stretchered out.  The next day, members of the Braves observe a moment of silence for Murrey.  Nobody even mentions…

Over the weekend, TIDAL said Apple was not letting them livestream Drake’s performance from a charity concert put on by Lil Wayne.  TIDAL broadcast the rest of the concert, but said Apple threatened to sue them if they showed Drake’s performance.     Drake’s manager Future the Prince tells Buzzfeed that TIDAL is lying. He says he made a business decision to not stream Drake’s performance because of lack of control of over the aesthetics of the stream.  He also says: “I don’t understand.  If…

    It’s funny: access providers are all about the music, until it comes time to protect it.  Which brings us to Austria, a fresh battleground for serious access-level blocking of pirate domains, and potentially serious piracy control.  Like, the Pirate Bay, which has proven virtually impossible to contain, especially as its ‘top-level domain,’ or TLD, is always morphing. Organizations like the RIAA in the US have been mostly ineffective in the battle against piracy hubs, even as torrenting continues to surge (and if you don’t believe that, read this).  But in Austria…

But there is enough visual splendor in this one incredible clip for an album’s worth of videos. Created by Italian director Onze, it jumps around like a Méliès film made in 2022, splaying across the screen in saturated color storms of stop motion jittery cut’n’paste collage, acrylic paints, photography and various computer wizardries. As for the Rome-based duo that made skizzy tune that twitches along with the visuals, Cascao has been a longtime fixture…

This week their fifth album Depression Cherry was both most added (by a large margin) and saw the highest debut of the week on the charts. Their previous two albums, Teen Dream and Bloom, saw lots of college radio success and paved the way for Depression Cherry to start off with such a strong impact.

Here it just sort of teases you a little bit…catching a glimpse of cardinal out of the corner of your eye before it disappears behind a tree. NOLA heat is not subtle….a black iron skillet dropped on a shoeless toe. Nevertheless, who wants to turn on an oven or stovetop in August? And why would you?

For me, it’s is the smell of just-shucked corn and the sound of whatever those insects are that hum all through the August days; desperate in their final attempts of expression before it’s too late. It’s the way I feel when I head to Vidalias this time of year, and see the fruit and produce that was grown just around the corner and picked this morning.

In late August, Copeland will once again be in the headlines when she stars in Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town for a limited engagement at New York’s Lyric Theatre, where she will bring the show’s nearly year-long run to a close. There, she will be joining a different sort of racial history from that of classical ballet. When On the Town debuted towards the end of World War II, its original production featured a mixed-race cast and…
  • Technology and the evolving portrait of the composer

    18 Aug 2015 | 1:30 am
    It’s a cartoon image from my childhood: a man with wild hair, wearing a topcoat, and frantically waving a baton with a deranged look on his face. In fact, this caricature of what a composer should look like was probably inspired by the popular image of Beethoven: moody, distant, a loner… a genius lost in his own world. To some degree or another, this clichéd portrait of a “typical” composer has been in the popular lexicon for many, many years, and has been stamped on composers from Mozart all the way to those in the middle of the 20th century. Stravinsky and his contemporaries seem…

    Alex Ross: The Rest Is Noise

    I'd read about the infamous Columbia Records "The Man can't bust our music" ad,  which appeared in underground newspapers in 1968, but never seen it until Ann Powers tweeted a copy. Like "Mahler Is Heavy," it's a problematic attempt to market classical music with counterculture rhetoric. In the lower-right-hand corner you see the CBS recording of Stockhausen's Mikrophonie I and Mikrophonie II. The copy reads: "The microphone as an instrument with shrieks and cackling. Is he for real?" It may be argued, though, that the Man never entirely…

    Michael Lewanski, on the Yale jazz fiasco: "By invoking the notion of a reified canon . . Blocker is actually undermining the very pieces he’s trying to defend; the Eroica symphony, after all, was meant to be revolutionary, not a bunch of audition excerpts practiced into the ground."
  • Bruckner at the 50-yard line

    Alex Ross
    30 Aug 2015 | 1:40 pm
    The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps, sponsored by the village of Rosemont, Illinois, featured the opening of the finale of Bruckner's Eighth Symphony in its 2015 program, "Game On." Then there's a slightly dizzying segue to "Fêtes," from Debussy's Nocturnes. According to the Drum Corps Repertoire Database, the first drums-corps group to play Bruckner was the Guardians, in 2013; their ambitious young director, Johnathan Doerr, has also programmed Mahler, Elgar, Percy Grainger, Copland, and John Adams. YouTube shows that various high-school bands had…
  • God and jazz at Yale

    Alex Ross
    29 Aug 2015 | 8:57 am
    Reading yesterday's New York Times, I came across an article that appeared to date from around the year 1930 — the period in which dunderheaded authorities like Daniel Gregory Mason inveighed against the vulgarity of jitterbugging. In the Times piece, Robert Blocker, the dean of the Yale School of Music, explains why jazz is not a priority for his institution. He is quoted as saying: “Our mission is real clear. We train people in the Western canon and in new music.” This is real bad. Jazz is a monumental art form, its major figures among the most original thinkers in…
  • For Nikolaus Lehnhoff

    Alex Ross
    28 Aug 2015 | 9:49 am
    The sad news came yesterday of the death, at the age of seventy-six, of the opera director Nikolaus Lehnhoff. Lavishly cultured and innately musical, Lehnhoff occupied a middle ground between traditional and radical approaches to directing opera. Schooled in that inexact science by Wieland Wagner, among others, he seldom slavishly followed indications in the libretto, nor did he impose a soundbite-ready concept; he tailored his ideas to the particular dimensions of the work. I was able to see a fair number of his productions live: Salome at the Met in 1990 and 1996, Palestrina at the Lincoln…

    25 Aug 2015 | 1:52 pm
    Input Error by Haujobb I am happy to announce a remix I did for the German EBM band Haujobb has been released. The song is called Input Error. It is on the first single from their next album called Blendwerk. The wonderful Sid Lamar (Schwefelgelb) also did a remix. As with many of my remixes I almost like to redo the track. For Input Error I used the underrated Kawai R100 drum machine. The bassline is an Alesis Microbrute. I re-arranged the vocals to be a “more standard” arrangement. I really wanted something that could be played regularly out at a club and also have an 80s Wax…

    On Saturday night I DJed and performed a live show in Bushwick, Brooklyn at The Bossa Nova Civic Club. I’ve mentioned “Bossa” a few times. It’s a small place in the middle of what was once nowhere. The nowhere part is changing quickly as Bushwick has become the place to be. I would argue Bossa had a big role in making the area cool. The event was Synthicide which is run by DJ Andi. Synthicide is one of the best events in the NYC area. It’s a mix of EBM, Industrial and straight up techno. Each event features 3 different DJs or live acts. Saturday night Andi herself played, the…

    When I was a child I had a TRS-80 Color Computer. I remember pretending the real world around me was made of pixels. I believe humans are ramping up self awareness in a dramatic way in the 21st Century. I love this Ted talk. I believe Dr. Hoffman is on the right path. “Cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman is trying to answer a big question: Do we experience the world as it really is … or as we need it to be? In this ever so slightly mind-blowing talk, he ponders how our minds construct reality for us.” – Ted For more info:

    It's no secret that bands from B.C. love to recycle. Just listen to any two Nickelback albums back to back. The rest of the province loves to recycle too: last year alone, British Columbians dropped off almost one billion beverage containers to Return-It depots. To celebrate our ever-greening behavior patterns, we challenged three great B.C. bands – Hey Ocean!, Shred Kelly, and Yukon Blonde – to create musical instruments out of recycled materials, and actually perform a song. We filmed the performances, which you can see below. Now it's up to you to decide which band…

    Every three years in Calgary, Alta., the Honens Piano Competition renews its quest for the complete pianist: "a thoughtful interpreter, a consummate collaborator, an awe-inspiring virtuoso, a communicator, a risk-taking explorer, a dreamer." It's a tall order, requiring contestants to display their artistry not only as solo and concerto performers, but also as chamber musicians and collaborative pianists. Following solo auditions in Berlin, London and New York earlier this year, a screening jury narrowed the field of 50 quarter-finalists to a group of 10 semifinalists who have now arrived…

    Bob Baker

    Do you ever wonder how you’re faring with your online reach and influence? Maybe you need to stop and take a snapshot of where you stand. I call it your Internet Influence Index (or 3i for short). A 3i is a listing of your current number of friends, followers and other statistics that indicate how well you’re connecting with fans online. It’s a quick measurement of your Internet presence. I refer to it as a snapshot because, if you’re proactive at all online, the numbers will be in constant flux – hopefully in an upward direction. Of course, I need to emphasize…

    IT WAS A TOUGH LESSON TO LEARN. For decades I’ve been the indie DIY guy. Self-reliance was my guiding principle. It worked. However, something about it was incomplete. The missing piece was facing the fact that I can’t succeed completely on my own – as a musician, a writer, a visual artist, or an actor. And neither can you. To truly thrive as a creative entrepreneur you need support. You need encouragement. You need people to celebrate victories with and share your defeats. You need a team, a family, a network of peers who are on the same challenging journey as you.

    27 Aug 2015 | 6:26 am
    One side of the survivability equation is the caution-to-the-wind embrace of a personal vision, fearless of the consequences, no matter how impractical. The other side thinks outside of the individual and looks at the times.

    Some companies advertise the pieces we write for free as new commissions. I vote for an immediate end to this practice. By all means, call it a world premiere by the Next Important Composer of Our Time. Phrase it however you need to make it sound sexy and get butts in seats, but it is not a commission. It is unpaid labor from which others stand to gain.

  • Album Review: ‘Revolving Door,’ Pseudonym

    Peter Lee
    26 Aug 2015 | 4:32 am
    Pseudonym's Revolving Door found its way into my inbox several months ago, where it gestated quietly before I got around to listening to it. What I found when I finally put my headphones on and pressed play was one of the biggest surprises of 2015 - a low-fi, extremely melodic release by a singer-songwriter who has been hiding his light under a bushel for too long. Paul Desjarlais is the genius behind Pseudonym, which, of course, is a pseudonym for his fake band and his fake bandmates, who even have their own fake bio. It's an outlet for Desjarlais, who hasn't released an album of new…
  • Album Review: ‘Crayons & Angels,’ Brandon Schott

    24 Aug 2015 | 6:48 am
    "Let's get lost in the sound," says Brandon Schott in his track "Verdugo Park" from Crayons & Angels, his fifth album. And it's a wonderful wall of sound that Schott creates, a soundscape of instruments creating magnificent stories that hearken to an innocent, playful time. Schott's day job is in the music business. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, he obviously knows his way around musical instruments, and he brings it all out in the opening montage, "Dandelion" (the title of his first album after being diagnosed with cancer). He uses a Rhodes piano, toy piano, dulcitone, and…

    Columbia House, the popular mail-order record club that boasted four, or eight, or 12, or even 13 albums for a paltry sum ranging from a penny to a dollar, is finally going belly up. I'm surprised it lasted this long; perhaps it's just my lack of reading magazines and finding its multi-page spread of albums, but I didn't even know it still existed. The "Spotify of the 80s," as the Verge put it, declared bankruptcy this week after declining sales over the past 19 years. Simply put, people aren't buying CDs, much less albums, cassettes or 8-tracks anymore. I never subscribed to the service -…
  • 13 Truly Bad Lyrics

    Peter Lee
    1 Aug 2015 | 9:06 am
    Picking bad lyrics from pop music is like shooting fish in a barrel. It's too easy. Pop music, in and of itself, is supposed to be about the hook, the melody, the chord progressions - not the lyrics. We leave that to Bob Dylan and Springsteen. I'm sure I'll get lots of additions to this list, but I compiled this list simply based on my six-hour trip to the beach this week. They're not the worst ever, but they're pretty bad. Like I said, this was too easy. Maybe I'll do part 2 based on the ride back home. "Sometimes When We Touch" - Dan Hill. Sometimes when we touch / the honesty's too much…

Never one to take the easy way out, she has chosen to draw shiny, metallic helium balloons.

    We hesitate to use words such as charming or sweet here as they might imply excessive cuteness, but the recently completed tiny chapel on Cyprus does have a welcoming, approachable appearance that made us contemplate tiny, cozy spaces. However, we were also immediately aware that this is sanctuary, not some dwelling for friendly trolls. We were also drawn to reflect on visits to small Greek mountain villages where tiny white churches cling to seemingly inaccessible cliffs. And glancing inside and seeing the gorgeous hanging lighting fixtures, we remembered our visits to stalactite caves on…

At the same time, we were also reminded of how much we love Farca’s elegant work in general. To start with, the Barrancas House in Mexico City had a lot going for it before Farca came along. It is located on a sloped property so that the four levels of the house, from basement all the way to the top, or second, floor, are all in fact on ground level. In addition, the site overlooks a great wooded area with grown trees and greenery. The house had good bones…

The image is called “Bubble” but we keep seeing all sorts of strange worlds in it. This piece has all the hallmarks of an eye-catching conversation piece. It does stand out. It will be noticed in whatever space you’ll hang it. In addition, it has a hypnotizing effect. In its enigmatic core there appears to be an explanation. If you just look at it long enough, you will solve the puzzle. You will figure it out.

In the past, the iconic director had taken the helm of a segment of the Francophile-friendly film Paris, je t’aime, and Music of the Heart. But his legacy lies with revitalizing the horror film genre, having directed the likes of Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream and The House on the Left. But perhaps the truest frightening thing of all is living in a world without his cinematic genius. Craven is credited as an executive producer on MTV’s Scream reboot.

Even if a book had just one useful insight, it was worth the $20 and my time spent reading and thinking. A few years ago, I realized I was forgetting the lessons I’d learned from past books. So I started taking detailed notes while reading, saving every important idea. I wanted to permanently remember what I’d learned, and act on it.

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.

    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…

Earlier this week the pop superstar posted a photo of herself and her dancers (see above) at a J.Cole concert in Los Angeles. Well, now it appears the pair teamed up for a remix of Ms. Jackson’s new single “No Sleeep.” The remix premiered last night on LA’s Real 92.3 radio station and thanks to the power of the internet, you can hear it below. So what do you think of Janet Jackson and J.Cole together? Updated: The original stream was removed from the internet,…

  • Emotional Labor, or being a Human Centered Human

    30 Aug 2015 | 1:39 pm
    Emotional labor is the work that you do for yourself and the people around you that is emotional in nature. It's a flexible concept and one that is incredibly important to user experience design. If you're curious about emotional labor in general, this article by brutereason is a great primer. Your job, no matter what it is, is pervaded with emotional labor - user experience designers are no different. When you're talking to a client, developers, bosses, or potential users, you're performing emotional labor. Creating emotional bonds with the people around you takes work and determination. You…
  • One-Click Deploy of a Meteor App to Heroku

    23 Aug 2015 | 6:20 pm
    If you're building an tool with the hope that people can host it themselves, having a “one click deploy” to Heroku button in your gives prospective users an easy way to test whether your tool would work for them. Luckily, getting one running is easy. I was working on a Meteor project when I experimented with this, so the concepts are specific to that, but should apply to other frameworks. First, add the deploy to Heroku button to your…
  • Digital Silt

    11 Aug 2015 | 4:23 pm
    Digital Human is a podcast put out by the BBC that investigates how humans change and act in the digital world. The last episode of the latest season is about silt. Ephemeral digital content is everywhere. The apparent "just once" nature of Snapchat is just one facet. People don't treat their online content as stuff that sticks around forever - to their own chagrin when it comes up in job interviews, to new friends, etc. Human interactions used to be completely ephemeral, traces of conversations existing only in our heads - media is an attempt at making our collective human knowledge less…

  • Bear Encounter

    4 Aug 2015 | 9:21 am
    Getting to the top of a 45˚ hill after an hour's climb with heavy packs we spotted a small shape on a rock. It's back-lit - but through our binoculars we're trying to figure out whether it's a marmot or a ground squirrel. Our hopes say marmot, but we know in our hearts that it will be a ground squirrel if we get a bit closer. Cassie puts down the binoculars, hands them to me, and then says, loudly and surprisingly "BEAR". On our right a young looking grizzly bear has just crested onto the top of the hill, and it starts ambling towards us. Immediately we do everything right - our arms shoot…

    Moze Halperin
    31 Aug 2015 | 8:04 am
    Perfectly timed to her big night at the VMAs, Miley Cyrus released a surprise, free album on her website; it’s called Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, and, with immediate sounds of 60s-robotism, it seems a complete amalgam of Cyrus and The Flaming Lips— and, lo and behold, it is! Cyrus wrote and recorded with Wayne Coyne/The Lips.(This is not the first oddly spelled, pet-related collaboration between Cyrus and the band, with the pop star first appearing on the band’s album of  Sgt. Pepper’s covers, With a Little Help from My Fwends — whose profits helped…
  • 2015 VMAs: “Kanye For President” Derails a Series of Calculated Tweetable Moments

    Shane Barnes
    31 Aug 2015 | 6:30 am
    When it comes to the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, it must be asked: did we somehow forget about Kanye West? Since the nominations, the announcement of Miley Cyrus as host, and the subsequent beef surrounding both of those things, the hype around this year’s VMAs (August 30) had been surprisingly bereft of Kanye. What Would Miley Do? had basically become the refrain, and in the end the answer was (delightfully): Miley. And so, for most of the night, the expected came to pass: Miley wore lots of things that looked like or featured body parts as design elements; Miley wore nothing. Taylor…

In the meantime, though, enjoy this lot! Sexwitch — “Helelyos” The band name might be cheesy, but everything else about Sexwitch — a collaboration between Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan, producer Dan Carey, and members of excellent British neo-kosmische types TOY — is great… especially this song, which like all the other tracks on the group’s self-titled…

The octave key helps all those notes play more easily. It has to do with the positioning of the holes on the horn connected to the octave key and the acoustics of how the saxophone works.

  • Teen Daze Finally Tops An Early Favorite In “Morning Glory”

    Andy Fenstermaker
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:53 pm
    2015 marks five years since Teen Daze first debuted on the music scene with a four-song EP called Beach Dreams. In the years and countless releases (many of them digital singles) since, Teen Daze has flirted with several genres. Early on, Beach Dreams encompassed his style in a very descriptive way, while more recently Jamison (the band’s solo member) has found comfort in electronica. His latest release, Morning World, is a departure from the Lefse Records years back to his earlier roots. Mellow and filled with instrumentation, Morning World presents Teen Daze as a more mature artist,…

    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.

The band moved from Chicago to Seattle and landed a spot on the Magic Marker Records roster for their debut LP Songs That You Might Not Like. Around the same time, via the twee-favorite Matinee Records imprint, I discovered Seattle indiepop band Math & Physics Club. Now, what do these two bands have to do with Unlikely Friends and their debut album Solid Gold Cowboy? The Answer: everything! Unlikely Friends is the pairing of D.

    David Erickson
    14 Aug 2015 | 7:48 am
    The debate about whether or not Spotify is a threat to Pandora continues, but recent research suggests the latter still has a large lead. Several differences exist between the music streaming platforms’ audiences, including age, loyalty and listening frequency. According to CivicScience polling conducted in April 2015, which focused on active users—those who used one of the streaming platforms “every day,” “a few times a week,” and “a few times a month”—Spotify’s audience skews much younger than Pandora’s. nearly two-thirds of US Spotify users were between the ages of 13…

As the owner of more than a few guitars, my standard response to people who believe that is a tad excessive is: “You can never have enough guitars.” Now I have expert supporting evidence for that stance. In this interview with NPR, Neko Case declares her love for her Fender Jazzmaster guitar. I can confirm that the love is justified. My friend John Kuehn owned one and to this day, it remains the best guitar I’ve ever played. Fretboard Journal has a…

    There’s no stopping the music industry’s digital transformation, based on recent research. According to data from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), digital music revenues worldwide rose nearly 7% last year to hit $6.85 billion, tying physical sales in share for the first time, at 46% each. The remaining 8% was from performance rights and synchronization. Just like in the US, IFPI found that streaming services—made up of subscription and ad-supported streams—were a key driver of global digital music revenues, accounting for 32% of the total, compared…

    Among American adults who use audio players in the car, two-thirds first turn on the AM/FM radio when listening to music, reports Ipsos in a newly-released study, while roughly 1 in 7 (14%) tune in to Sirius XM and about 1 in 10 (11%) turn on their CD player. Preference for AM/FM radio is consistent across age groups, gender, and household income levels, though appears to be higher among females and older consumers. Interestingly, 18-34-year-olds are more likely to first play a CD (15%) than to listen to streaming digital audio services or a digital music collection (10%). Source: Ipsos Read…

  • Sing something simple (and see if your singing is as good as you think it is)

    If you’re like me, you’re always tempted to add harmonies to the simplest of melodies whether it’s singing along with others or arranging a song.But don’t overlook the simplicity of unison singing and drones. These are great ways of finding out if your singing is as good as you think!Singing in harmony is quite forgiving. It’s possible to sound reasonably good without being 100% accurate. But when all the singers have to sing exactly the same thing in exactly the same way at exactly the same time, it can reveal how accurate you really are.This is true whether it’s you and a…

Seraphese, the second track on the EP, first emerged online last year and is as beautiful as it is simplistic, with little more than a piano and an urgent tick of percussion for much of its three and a half minutes, but that is all it needs. On ‘In Defense Of My Muse’, Morly, whose real name is Kate Morley, builds on this base with three more hauntingly…

The music--which is why the crowd took advantage of this free event in the first place--was pretty good.  Yuck, a quartet hailing from London, was the first to take stage, though better name for them might be, "Too Cool For School." They remained mostly immobile throughout their short set, and the audience mimicked their stoicism. Though, what the audience lacked in movement they made up for in screaming…

    Although the weather gods could not be appeased Thursday night by the sounds of bluegrass (as banjo player Noam Pikelny joked), the crowds certainly were as the Punch Brothers put on a striking performance at Celebrate Brooklyn under heavy rain and lightning.  Playing selections from their latest album “The Phosphorescent Blues”, the band played with an incomparable warmth and energy, effortlessly weaving through flawless vocal harmonies and virtuoso instrumentals. Always-entertaining lead singer and mandolin player Chris Thile took every opportunity to dance around, most notably…

    We all know music that lifts us to ecstasies, irritates us, or even inspires us to violence. And if you’re listening to the wrong music while driving, it can be deadly, suggests Prof. Warren Brodsky, director of music psychology in the Department of the Arts at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. “The car is the only place in the world you can die just because you’re listening to the wrong kind of music,” says Brodsky, who recently published the first textbook on how music can affect driving habits, “Driving with Music: Cognitive-Behavioral Implications” (Ashgate…

According to C magazine, the wife of rapper Kanye West has been reading lots of odd comments about her pregnancy, specifically about her weight gain.

In fact, unlike today’s artists who are so frequently “discovered” by celebrity performers or by communities online, Ludacris pursued music much in the way anyone pursues an ordinary job: he got an internship at a radio station in Atlanta. The rest, of course, is history. With a strong discography and endless amount of hits, Ludacris has been a constant in the music industry. But that doesn’t mean nothing has changed…

  • Toquinho celebrates 50

    9 Jul 2015 | 4:05 pm

    It is something special when a place can bring great emotion and inspiration , enough to create a band new album.

An album which has basis in the more popular Brazilian forms of Bossa Nova and Samba but goes beyond that.

  • Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil Reunite for Historic Tour

    4 Jul 2015 | 10:35 am
    “Legend” is a term that many critics feel is overused in recent times. Two persons who undoubtedly deserve the title are Brazilian music veterans Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso. The length of their careers and breadth of their discography is one that can only be matched by a handful of names. It could have seem apt to name their first Joint tour in more than 20 years “Two Legends” however instead they chose a title that spoke to their continued relationship: “Two Friends.” As they embarked on the tour the numbers were fascinating to ponder: both would be…

  • The Evolution of Casino Slot Machine Music

    5 Aug 2015 | 6:46 pm
    In the past, sound merely signaled a reward. Now it’s part of the reward. In the past, you knew you’d won on a slot machine if you heard a cascade of sounds, which signalled some sort of payout. That was basically the only function that the sounds had on a slot machine, back then. The slot machines of today are a far cry from the painted metal boxes of the past, however. These days, slots feature high-definition graphics and video, touchscreen controls, and even a few mechanics appropriated from video games. The sound design has also leapt to never-before-seen levels. “Slot…

    Keep up with BAILE FACEBOOK | TWITTER | SOUNDCLOUD BAILE has been so consistent with his releases. The producer has continued to evolve from his original remixes that were heavy on the dark ambience into newer territory involving more danceable beats and featured vocalists. Although he’s picked up some new sounds, he’s still remained true to his style, and I really appreciate that. Those use of vocal drones and stacked layers really made BAILE’s music stand out from the rest of the crowd. Take BAILE’s latest single Holdin’ as an example. The song premiered…

The result is the Lazer Guided Melodies podcast series, titled as an homage to the band Spiritualized’s 1992 album of the same name. If you speak Spanish, you’re in luck! Agte.

    Many times in the past I've written about the personal reward I receive from publishing the Weekly Music Commentary. Over a period of just a few years I have met a number of good and great musicians. I follow quite a number of them and their career accomplishments closely. I have a short list of artists whom I featured before any album or EP release, and gain internal satisfaction as they create more music and grow to acquire wide acclaim. This week is special to me because I am featuring an entertainer for the second time. This week I chose to feature the multi-talented entertainer Michael…

    Mark RonsonSome may find it hard to believe someone might ask the question above. Trust me, there are quite a few of my readers who will quietly utter those exact words. I must tell you that I hear the question about the identity of a featured artist frequently, even when an extremely popular artist is featured. I understand that I choose to highlight new and/or young artists a great deal, and they have not produced the volume of material or had the opportunity to create the hit song or album. However, I am intrigued by the lack of recognition of someone like Mark Ronson. Why? Because he…

    Andra DayOptimistic! I have heard the word used many times throughout my life. Several years ago the Grammy Award-winning vocal and instrumental ensemble Sounds of Blackness used the word as the title of one of their hit songs. The chorus provides the formula for optimistic thinking, “you can win as long as you keep your head to the sky.” As we approach any endeavor, it is important to be realistic, but it might be more important to be optimistic. No one can achieve unless they first dare to dream. Such thinking is of utmost importance for the aspiring music artist. One major reason for…

    Oriana CurlsAs I listened to a wide variety of music this week, I started to wonder what moves us to appreciate a particular artist or style of song. I am no different than most people because I have my favorites. However, it must be more difficult for an artist to find an accepting audience. Years and years of working and practicing in order to become more a proficient artist is necessary, but then one must make the choice of musical genre. There have been several musicians I knew who changed genres and went on to brilliant careers. Sometimes I have even heard of some that changed the way…

Of course, many people feel that talent is secondary to the brilliant plan to sell a musician and their music.  The reality is that it takes both components to create widespread success. Still, the object is to make people notice the talent, and then give them a reason to like what they are hearing. A term you hear a lot in marketing is – create a buzz. In preparing for this week I wanted to understand that word: buzz. Sure I have heard the buzz of a bee or other insects. I…

    Note the VCS3 synth on top of the organHere's a piece from a song that you've probably been hearing on television commercials a lot lately. It's the isolated keys from The Who's "Eminence Front" from their It's Hard album (the last with drummer Kenny Jones and bassist John Entwistle).The keys are pretty buried in the song (although the sequenced synth carries it), so it's pretty interesting to hear just how intricate they are.1.

Not only that, the company continues to provide free updates that always seem to add something useful, like yesterday's 10.2 update.The big deal with 10.2 is that it adds Camel Audio's (which Apple purchased earlier this year) Alchemy synth. This is a synth with a wide range of talents, from creating sounds using samples and different kinds of synthesis, to multiple filters and modulation options.Other than that, Logic Pro X 10.2 provides an easy way to…

  • State Champion- Don't Leave Home Without My Love

    23 Jul 2015 | 8:04 pm
    State Champion's punked-up country gunk frequently recalls both the Aristotelian pathos of bands like Souled American and Palace Brothers and the character-driven black humor of indie ironists like Camper Van Beethoven and the Supreme Dicks. Mere homage, however, is not State Champion's line. Singer and head honcho Ryan Davis is a sharp, astute lyricist, the kind of songwriter who probably gets tired of people asking him why he doesn't try his hand at short story writing. Indeed, Fantasy Error's depictions of postmasters and county coroners, Dickensian drinkers and "teardrop pushers" are…

Over the course of several months, Ahee waded through more than a hundred song fragments until he reached the bottomless melodies of “I Forgive You” and…

An elongated, circulating current of energy flow marks each stanza expanding in layers and layers of formulaic chaos… Immerse yourself in the cool blues, the dynamic purples, the voltaic vocals, the power-driven guitar licks. Each track is a different microcosm to let your mind explore. Sun shining, rain pouring, wind twirling, they’ve baked up something atmospheric just for you.

American musicians usually are two things; A) Not short on confidence (a read of his bio on his website indicates that he’s no shrinking violet, if you need more proof a listen to his lyrics shows us his confidence) and B) Not afraid to use themselves as an object of their songs.

    Tame Impala have unveiled the official video for the absolutely epic Currents opening track and lead single "Let It Happen".The video for "Let It Happen" was directed by David Wilson and features hallucinations. No, no, lets get off that whole stoner Tame Impala bandwagon crap now, just watch it. The video's protagonist manages to think that his sandwich is trying to have a bit of a chat with him, and ultimately the videos twist is a bit weird too. On Currents, we found ourselves wondering if it was going to be a bit of a flop after hearing over half the album prior to the release,…

It is the increased element of funk which strikes the hardest, and paired with Yannis' typical vocals, Foals turn "Daffodils" from something fairly tame to a heavy jazzfest of epic space age proportion.

    Toronto's Fake Palms make gruff and rasping noise pop in the best way, sounding very similar and potentially more melodic than The Stooges or more currently Viet Cong - that may be why they're claiming a Brian Wilson influence in there too. I think latest song "YTMATLDPH" will vouch for that."YTMATLDPH" sounds harsh, brutalist and all kinds of dirty, but it is Fake Palms' juxtaposition between dirt and melody that make their music so infectious, and they've got somewhat of a chorus on show too.

  • 4 Reasons Boy Bands Are More Successful Than Girl Bands

    20 Aug 2015 | 9:10 am
    Over the years boy bands have typically been more successful than girl bands. It’s not that one is more talented than the other. It really has to do more with a few key factors. Throughout the 90s we had some great all boy groups and girl groups, but as we headed into 2010 the number of girl groups fell rapidly. In fact, as of right now I can’t really think of any really popular female groups here in the US. So why do the boys tend to be more successful and have more followers? 1. More Young Female Fans Boy bands have more success  because there are  more young female fans than…

    A live album is a chance for the band to showcase their ability live. Sadly, there haven’t been as many great live albums since the late Nineties’ because it’s become less popular to deviate from the recorded song’s structure, dropping any lengthy improvisations or between-song talk, amongst the crowd or the members themselves. These are the best of those moments, compiled over the course of over thirty years. 10.

    20 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    I find it interesting how easy it is to think a song is about love or something equally ‘bright” when it’s really anything but. Some of the songs we hear are pretty blatant when it comes to what they were about; it’s not too hard to see what Inner Circle’s “Girl, I want to make you sweat…and if you cry out, I’m gonna push it some more” is referring to.

  • Top 18 Underrated 90’s Alternative Rock Albums

    Jamie Coughlan
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:52 am
    The Weird And The Wonderful. The 90’s was a majestic era for rock music. Alternative broke the mainstream, and, for once, there was music on the radio that was both commercially viable and actually of some substance before the wheels came off and the post-grunge of Creed and Nickelback took over. As such it seems predictable that in an era of such wonderful quality, many bands and albums would be overlooked and under rated. Here we will have a look at a host of albums from the era that were either unfairly under rated critically, or never found the commercial audience they deserved.

    Serena Williams will continue her march towards history when the US Open kicks off on Monday. The elusive calendar Grand Slam has not been captured since Steffi Graf swept the major tournaments in 1988. As dominant as Serena has been throughout the first three tournaments, one could argue that the run Graf had was even more impressive, as she only lost a single set in her 21 matches. Even though she might not have as dominant a run as Graf had, Serena has been unmatched over the course of her entire career. Against the current crop of top 100 players in the world, Serena has a win percentage…

    The MTV Video Music Awards turned 30 last year. And while MTV continues to spiral further away from their music, and music video roots as a channel, the network and the VMAs specifically continue to play a major part in the current zeitgeist, and their appetite for music related pop culture moments. The line that separates the relevance of a Snapchat story, from a tweet, from a well written but TLDR article in GQ magazine is thinner than ever. What makes the VMAs continue to standout as a monument of relevancy is their history. Madonna kissing Britney & Christina, Prince showing his ass…

    We released Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro 6 a few days ago. One of the best features in the app is to be able to load and play tracks from the iPad’s Library. The process is pretty straight forward but we’ve encounter a few unexpected problems in the process. We wanted the user to be able to pick a track from their library and load it into the app. In order to do this the best option is to use the mediaPicker This is how you call it: – (void)chooseASongFromYourLibraryOnView:(UIViewController*) pViewController {     MPMediaPickerController *picker =    …

    In our latest music app “Sounds of Christmas by mDecks Music” we wanted to create the illusion of playing a virtual instrument with your iPhone in 3D space. The user would hit “AIR” as if it were Bells and the iPhone will produce sound (notes, chords, etc) To achieve such effect, we had to user iPhone’s CoreMotion Technology which allows access to all the iPhone’s motion  detection system. You can read more about it on my previous post Turning an iPhone into a Musical Instrument Now, if you have ever worked with MIDI, Samplers and Sequencing software, you…

    While developing our new Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music app we did an experiment with the CoreMotion module of the iPhone. CoreMotion lets you detect and track movements of the iPhone in real time. There are many different approaches to implement apps that can handle iPhone movement. The most frequently used technique is to use a method that detects the iPhone being shake but it is not precise and did not work for us. For a more precise tracking method you need to use CoreMotion. In our solution, we were able to implement a routine that would detect the iPhone movement when the user…

As a blue-eyed soul singer who previously side-stepped peoples expectations by mixing in R&B and hip hop elements  on previous albums and writing solid songs from the heart, it was not a stretch to fathom her writing a hip hop album with a reggae flare.  Water For Your Soul is a significant departure from Joss’ past albums which is not necessarily a bad thing, but may deter some fans. But by recruiting Damian Marley to cowrite songs like “Love Me” and “Wake Up” Joss let us know that she was serious about…

With a flood of talented blues masters out there, I decided to check in with a band that has regularly appeared on my shuffle. To my enjoyment, Mark Johnson of Delta Moon was kind enough to answer my request and shared his journey within the blues. To start, I was curious to learn about how his ambitions into music. “Well, I’m not sure I have choice! I am a…
  • Show Review: Meghann Wright

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:44 pm
    What a wild week it has been! Summer mornings and evenings have suddenly changed into fall weather. Not that I am complaining because the coolness is well received. To keep that cool flow going I went downtown to check out a new artist on the scene. Via an invite, I made my way to the Mercury Lounge to listen to Meghann Wright work her magic. 2009 was the last time I had a chance to visit the Mercury Lounge. It actually was an interesting evening. A friend of mine invited me to attend a Xylos show, and we helped them as roadies that night. However, unbeknownst to me, my friend was underage…

    28 Aug 2015 | 10:46 am
    Lately Chaz Bundick aka Toro y Moi has been dropping random new tracks all summer on his soundcloud saying very little about them other than leaving a “hashtag samantha”.  The tracks have been a stark contrast compared to his more guitar driven LP, What For, released earlier this year.  Last night it seems that everything has finally come together as Chaz has shared a 20 track mixtape including previous songs like “Pitch Black“.  The mixtape titled Samantha can be downloaded here and features more hip-hop production than we’ve seen from Chaz in the past,…

    This is the first time I write about anime in my blog, but this one is worth to mention: Kill la Kill (キルラキル) directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi is everything you were looking for: It is extremely (really!) fast paced, with great different animation styles, (similar to Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood), very well curated music and a splash of colors that you would not […]

    Gabriel Moreno, is a painter and illustrator based in Spain, I liked Gabriel because he is -in a nutshell- what I like about illustrators, black and white images with color splashes, great detail, suggestive but not explicit, creative but within the limits of perspective and understanding, easy to digest. He has a website and Facebook site where you can […]

  • 5 Qualities Ever Singer or Vocalist Needs to Practice

    Michael Musco
    28 Aug 2015 | 1:08 pm
    As a music producer, I am always looking for solid vocals. The main reason is because it can take a track from good to great. Vocals really come in two different categories in my opinion. The first category is singing which can be roughly defined as singing the lyrics to the song. On the other hand, vocalists use their voice almost like an instrument to create different melodies, tones, and musical layers. Ideally it would be great to find someone that can do both, but it is not a deal breaker either way.A lot of times I'll hear some vocals that sound very close but are just not quite right.
  • 6 Reasons Why I Am Not Touring

    Michael Musco
    25 Aug 2015 | 3:49 pm
    Touring is something that can be a very important way to get people interested in your music, and I have a lot of respect for musicians that go and play out. There is nothing that can describe the feeling of playing in front of an audience that is digging what you are doing, and it is something that every musician should do at some point or another. At one point in my life that is all I wanted to do and I think it's very important that musicians get that instinct when creating a new track to think about how a crowd will react to it.I think the thing that unites every musician is the goal of…
  • Free Music, Piracy, File Sharing: A Musicians Perspective

    Michael Musco
    19 Aug 2015 | 12:59 pm
    Let me tell you something, writing about this topic makes me nervous. I don't really even know why but there is kind of weird fear about it. Maybe it's the fear that I will piss someone off but I don't really know.Personally, as a musician, I believe that music has value. It takes time and money to create good music and the idea that it should be free is a pretty silly debate. Of course it shouldn't be free, someone needs to pay for it BUT I don't think that someone is always the music fan.It pisses me off when I see the fans getting the most shit about piracy and free music, and it…
  • Navigating the New Music Industry

    Michael Musco

    The music industry is completely changing forms and evolving. The old way the music business worked is not the way it works anymore. It's obvious. Record sales are down, labels are losing money, and it's clear the system did not kept up with technology. Now we are left with two options.The first option is to look at what is going on right now, cry about it, and wish the internet had never been born. The second option is to embrace it, work with it, and create a better system.Personally I am in favor of the second option. There are already so many opportunities that have emerged in the new…
  • Only 1 Album Released in 2015 has Gone Platinum

    Michael Musco
    17 Aug 2015 | 6:15 am
    In the United States record sales determine whether an album gets Gold, Platinum, or Diamond. An album with sales of 500,000+ is Gold, 1,000,000+ is Platinum, and 10,000,000+ is Diamond. So far, only one album released in 2015 has reached Platinum status.So congratulations to Drake for the If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late album going Platinum. In 2014 there were only two released albums that went Platinum, and they were Taylor Swifts 1989 album, and the Frozen Soundtrack. There were other albums that achieved platinum status in 2014 but they just weren't released that same…

This weekend (or next) make sure you make time to pay a visit to one of the many creamy businesses that have a South Bay zip code like Handel’s in Redondo Beach or Manhattan Beach Creamery.

Shakespeare by the Sea makes it final stop of the summer this Friday (8/21) and Saturday (8/22) at Point Fermin Park in San Pedro featuring two of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies: “The Tempest” , an ocean-borne, magical tale of romance woven with rich poetry; and “As You Like It”, the enchanting take of love set in the Forest of Arden.

The other guys were out at a movie, so I wasn't expecting to hear from anyone.After spending the evening in the hotel watching TV, ordering pizza, sleeping, and listening to the rain I had collected this heavy jittery-ness in my chest like I needed to move.

    14 Jul 2015 | 1:38 pm
    I'm going to tell you about a trip when our friend Jack drove the three of us through a long western night; determined to get us all home in one 35 hr go. The first hours were the easiest. No matter how tough or grueling a tour is, I always get a boost when we leave our final hotel. So it's no thing to pass 8 - 12 hours trading playlists on our phones and burning pavement. But at the 16th hour, just barely approaching halfway, that feeling turns into something else. Some new kind of exhaustion. Cause I know the only thing between home and me is time."Why don't you get some sleep? You can…

  • What to Do Before Leaving Your Friends (and Music Students)

    I’ve become intrigued about leaving the place called home. At what point does the homesickness kick in? My piano student, Kayla, has been with me for years. I’ve never been a big-party kind of girl but I wanted to see my friends and everyone that mattered before I left. “I’ll plan your going away party,” my sister said. “Really?” I said. “I want it by the beach.” Thirty-odd people came, and everything I thought mattered did not matter. The weather, for example– we packed tarps and considered moving the party to Sunday because of the…

    I was about to become homeless in Hong Kong, during my first visit to Asia. My housing agreement didn’t pan out. But then I lost my passport returning from Seattle (where I saw dead people), and turned my backpack inside out for the next few days. If I put the passport by the food in my bag, I might’ve noticed it slipping out– but I couldn’t decide which sugary cereal to get at the rest stop before the bus driver marched us back, so I had nothing to put the passport beside anyways, and remained starved and half asleep on the way home. This morning, my friend David told me to…

Here are some of the highlights to producing my latest event– I had two months to pull this off, in the middle of summer. I didn’t cough blood this time. 1. Something is missing. I used to teach piano in public schools. many musicians were talented and passionate, but they tended to practice in their rooms, alone for hours, so I wanted to create a stage for the everyday musician to share their music with an audience. At the highest level, I needed…

    It’s been several months since we’ve heard a new track from Dirty South. The Serbian DJ/producer wowed us with his remix of Zedd’s “Beautiful Now” back in June and received high praise for his four-hour set at the Avalon Hollywood a month later, but this is the first big track we’ve heard from him since last year. “Find A Way” is the same kind of wistful progressive house as Dirty South’s 2012 Alesso collaboration “City of Dreams,” but with updated production values. Rudy’s emotive vocals contribute to the longing tone…

    EDM’s new kid on the block is, like, literally a kid. It’s only been a year since the name Ryos hit the scene, and at only 17 years of age he’s teamed up with Borgeous on “Machi,” his very first Spinnin’ Records release. “Machi” is decidedly uncharacteristic of the big room house sound exhibited in the rest of Borgeous’ releases – but then again, he’s only ever released collaborations with artists like DVBBS and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike (who themselves are each rumored to rely heavily on ghost producers), so who even…

Also called a Blood Moon, this particular occasion is special in that it will be the final eclipse of this lunar tetrad (four lunar eclipses in a row, each six full moons apart). On September 27th, the final day of TomorrowWorld, the Blood Moon will make its appearance from 8:00 pm to 1:30 am, reaching its climax during the headlining performances of Porter Robinson and Armin Van Buuren.

    John Cameron
    31 Aug 2015 | 11:07 am
    I don’t know why it still surprises me whenever Martin Garrix reminds the world that he’s a living, breathing caricature of EDM excess. Perhaps I held out too much hope that following the mixed reception of “Animals,” the young Dutchman’s musical identity crisis would result in a more sincere approach to his craft. However, while his recent split with Spinnin’ Records suggested that he might finally be ready for such a leap, his latest sponsorship deal finds him just as gimmicky as ever. The most recent upload to Garrix’s YouTube channel is a…

Jenaux already had a strong relationship with the Austin, Texas-based duo having released his massive Pia Toscano collaboration, “Renegades,” on their Enhanced Recordings imprint earlier in the year.

  • Song Writing – Arrangement Analysis Checklists

    The Big Dog
    29 Aug 2015 | 2:34 am
    Today, some checklists based on the arrangement tips from last time. After you’ve written your song, ask yourself these questions.   What do the instruments do? How do they fit together? Do they change or stay the same? Are their parts simple or complex? Do the overall dynamics change? e.g. loud/soft, fast/slow, full/sparse arrangement Does the tempo change? Does the overall level of complexity, texture or no of notes played per bar (8ths, 16ths 32nds) change drastically anywhere? What layers does it have? e.g. rhythm, bass, harmony, melody What different textures does it have?e.g.

    The Big Dog
    22 Aug 2015 | 2:31 am
    We’ve covered lyrics over the last 2 posts (and previously I gave a few brief top tips for song writing). Now it’s time to move onto arrangement proper. Melody I know it’s not part of arrangement, but it’s too important to ignore. Many songwriters take a lyric and a chord sequence or a riff and just try to hammer the 2 together. This can work and may give you a satisfactory song. But too often it results in a song where the melody is a little boring and limited and is only held up by the chords, lyric and arrangement. If you want a better melody, write it before you…

    Last time we looked at basic lyric structure. Today I’m going to get more into the actual words themselves. Make Your Opening Line Attention Grabbing It has been said many times (a few of them by me on this blog) that you have SECONDS to grab a listener. If you don’t grab them in those first 5-7 seconds, they will click onto something else. Your first line needs to get their attention; shock them or make them curious. Paint A Picture “Slumped down in a chair, tears streaming down his face” is a lot more effective than, “he was upset”. Don’t talk about people’s feelings; show…

    I’ve neglected this topic, too much for too long. Today we’re going to start a series of posts on song writing. Some people are very precious about their songs and have major objections to any kind of “rules”. None of what I’m saying here is hard and fast and you will find many exceptions to every bit of advice here. Sometimes because of not knowing better but sometimes because of the artistry of the writer allows them to bend the “rules” to good effect. How to write also depends on what you want to do with the song. If you are writing for yourself or your band…
  • Getting More Media Coverage and Better Gigs

    The Big Dog
    1 Aug 2015 | 2:35 am
    Just a short one today but a goodie nevertheless. Once you get a show, ask the promoter to share their media list with you so that you can promote the gig. Most promoters will be happy to share as it’s in their interest for you to get the gig publicity but if they’re resistant, don’t push. Once you have a media list make sure it’s up to date and add any others that you already know of. Keep separate national media and local lists by region. People in New York really don’t care about your gig in LA. Be a team player. If they want promotional materials (to send to…

The slow, blues influence contrasted the often angry, protesting up-tempo nature of a lot of hip hop at the time, and it gave birth to the Houston rap scene. Producer-legend and Houston native DJ Screw soon followed Geto Boys, creating an almost exaggerated version of what had preceded him, playing records at nearly half-speed and…

  • Deep Purple

    17 Aug 2015 | 8:51 am
    What is it with these classic rock bands these days? Deep Purple is a band with very few popular songs, and not a band that should be playing at 17,000 capacity amphitheaters more than forty years into their career. Don’t get me wrong, Machine Head is an amazing album, but other than that I’m not sure what Deep Purple is good for. Let’s start with the venue: the show was at the Molson Amphitheater (which as I mentioned before is HUGE), a venue that was around four times too big for this show. I’d say there were only around 4,000 people there and throughout the show…
  • Def Leppard with Styx

    12 Aug 2015 | 4:52 am
    Oldies who should retire Def Leppard sucked. I wasn’t expecting the same show quality as I would’ve from other classic rock bands that are more established like Aerosmith or even Axl Rose’s newer version of Guns ‘n’ Roses, but I expected way more than what I got, having paid $80 for two tickets up in the back. For the entire show, Joe Elliot (the lead singer) seemed so uninterested in what he was doing that he just stood there and sang the songs as opposed to trying to entertain the crowd while doing so. I also got bored of the show after the band played about…
  • Foo Fighters

    8 Jul 2015 | 9:43 pm
    King Grohl atop his throne It’s unlike me to say that a show is perfect because I like to believe that there is no such thing as a perfect show. I have been convinced by Grohl and company that the perfect show does exist, and it was fucking awesome. Over the course of a profanity-laden three hour set (that broke curfew by quite a bit) King Dave, sitting atop his throne of flashing lights, guitars and speaker boxes, seemingly invited me and sixteen thousand other Torontonians into his world for deep cuts, Queen covers and Foos hits. A tank couldn’t stop this guy so it’s no…
  • U2 Innocence and Experience Tour

    7 Jul 2015 | 12:09 pm
    Although I’ve been to more concerts in the past twelve months than most people will go to in their entire lives, the one band on my bucket list that I had left to see was the so-called “biggest band in the world”, the one and only U2. They’re one of my favourite bands and this was the first chance I’d had to see them live. All the anticipation was worth it, as the band did not disappoint. As soon as I arrived at my seat in the ACC I got goosebumps from the unbelievable energy in the room. The entire arena was open, meaning that there were people in the seats behind the main stage.
  • Rush

    18 Jun 2015 | 10:07 am
    Rush is a band that has always defied convention. Despite critical snubs from the likes of Rolling Stone (and various other media outlets) and never having a number one hit, Rush is the highest-selling band to ever emerge from Canada with more than forty million albums sold and has a ginormous cult fan base that’s larger and more loyal than any other I’ve ever seen. Their two hometown shows in Toronto (June 17 and June 19), at the Air Canada Centre were among the most highly anticipated shows of the tour and the band definitely delivered.   The setlist moved in reverse chronological…

  • Types of Guitars for the Development of Mass Appeal – Cranking Up That Electric Noise

    31 Aug 2015 | 1:01 am
    We had looked into acoustic guitars as one of the two common types of guitars in the popular music landscape. While acoustics can be played conveniently everywhere in unplugged and intimate settings, electric guitars (as the name suggests) requires amplification, electrical signals and related process to produce a loud sound. The loud sound can often be heard in hard rock and heavy metal music that usually involves manipulated distortion and reverberation. Although electric guitars were originally designed to serve jazz guitarists in the Big Band era, they have become a staple of any…
  • Develop Your Valuable Instrument – How to Find Your Vocal Range

    24 Aug 2015 | 1:01 am
    A vocal range can simply be understood as the span between the lowest and the highest notes. This leads to variation of pitches and classification of different types of singing voice. Classification of singing voice is very essential in the opera and musical world since the tone, pitches, and variation of notes from a soprano (highest female voice) or a tenor (highest male voice) may convey commanding tones, pitches and dramatic expressions in their roles. Whether a singer belongs to a mezzo soprano, baritone or other classification is not really important in the popular music world, but…

    As one of two common musical instruments in the popular music landscape, guitars have become a favorite musical instruments and many have been carried around by musicians. Having the proficiency of playing a guitar with superior vocal ability can potentially increase your success and mass appeal in the music business. While you can become an occasional guitar player for certain songs, the instrument can become a great tool or      companion for your style and creativity, especially in the songwriting area.

  • Mastering Vocal Warm Up Exercises – What Should Singers Focus On?

    27 Jul 2015 | 1:01 am
    During off seasons, professional athletes go through regimented training in order to develop and strengthen their core muscles so that they can improve speed and agility for efficient performances and increased chances of winning any tournaments. While professional singers usually do not compete with other singers, they also need to go through routines of vocal warm up exercises that can prepare them for performing challenging songs and singing for many hours during extended touring. In each warm up routine, singers should minimally focus on relaxing the body, practicing the breath management…
  • Scream and Whisper at These Ribbon Microphones

    18 May 2015 | 6:01 pm
    Many singers/musicians and recording studios can settle with a bunch of dynamic microphones for their affordability and some condensers for their ability to capture certain details. On the other hand, ribbon microphones was the standard mics used in broadcasting and recording studios in the 1920s to 1950s due to their high quality sound. Appearance wise, they used to be bulky, but modern designs have made ribbons smaller in different shapes and can look like mini tubes, laser pointers, or electric shavers. In terms of sound output, ribbons can pick up sounds from two directions and many can…

The most popular groups of this genre are Green Day and Blink-182, but there are many to choose from.     The British group "A" recorded together from 1996 to 2005 and had some success in their home country as well as  Germany, but little elsewhere.

    Gospel music has always informed popular music.  Country, Rock and Roll, R&B and Soul all have been influenced at some level by Gospel. It's not surprising then that most of the singers of those genres came out of the church. Some, like Johnny Cash and Elvis were influenced by the songs of the church, and at least in Presley's case, it's stage manner as well. Others like Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin were actually singing gospel music before switching to more secular material. George "Ooppee" McCurn spent the 1950's as a member of two of gospel's greatest groups;…

    31 Aug 2015 | 1:50 am
    For most people, setting up a home recording studio sounds like a monumental task. Indeed, it seems like it’s difficult to gather everything that you will need for it. After all, many imagine a studio as having a lot of electronics and cables. However, in reality, building a home recording studio isn’t as hard as you think it is. The trick is to get started with only the most important equipment (which aren’t a lot actually). And so, I am sharing here a home recording studio equipment list that only has the 6 most essential items. The 6 Most Essential Studio Equipment Click…
  • The Best Acoustic Guitars For The Money

    28 Aug 2015 | 4:50 am
    In this post, I compared the best acoustic guitars for the money of beginners, intermediate and advanced players. Reviews of options within different price ranges are included, and there is also a guide to features below. This is to help anyone avoid the bad guitars, not to mention the regret from accidentally buying one. To pick out the good ones, I evaluated five important factors, namely: playability, electric option, price, sound and looks. I also considered other people’s reviews, so only the top rated acoustic guitars are included here. To quickly scroll down to sections of this…

    Dave Navarro, Mike Shinoda and Justin Timberlake? Yup, it’s another roundup of seemingly random throwback music. Addicted to Nostalgia Just recently, Jane’s Addiction performed their full 1988 album “Nothing’s Shocking” at Showbox SoDo in Seattle. It was a very rare throwback performance, and at an unusually intimate venue nonetheless. The band is known for their hedonistic live spectacles — they had two scantily clad dancers and Dave Navarro performed shirtless. Jane’s Addiction also performed songs for later era fans, like “Been Caught…

  • There Will Be Haters

    22 Mar 2015 | 5:09 am
    Recently, I decided that I’ll finally start jogging. I’ve been spending too much time in front of my computer, and I felt that I really needed some exercise. My shoes were kind of old though, so I browsed online for a new pair and stumbled upon this video: Obviously, I wasn’t looking for football shoes, but the ad’s message made me check it out. More so, it made me realize how hating is “normal” now, specially in the music industry. Inspired by the ad, I took a look at some of music’s own successful, yet much hated personalities.

  • Playing Bass Solo?

    3 Aug 2015 | 10:51 am
    In 1965 British rock group, The Who released a song called My Generation. Apart from its claim to fame as a rock anthem it also contains the most instantly recognizable bass guitar solo in rock and roll. This iconic solo by John Entwistle is typical of the bass solo modeled on similar solo breaks played on double bass and bass guitar in jazz music. This type of bass guitar solo is in the form of a question and answer sequence often found in blues music. The Who’s solo also imitates jazz bass solos in that it is played without other instruments behind it. In jazz such solos are played…
  • Brief History of Bass Guitar

    1 Aug 2015 | 10:28 am
    Ask most people who created the modern electric bass guitar and they will tell you it was Leo Fender. However, there were at least five other prototypes resembling the now well-known design of the modern bass, each created well before Fender introduced the world to the Precision bass in 1951. The modern bass is a direct descendant of the double bass, which dates back to the 17th century. However, it was not until the early twentieth century that the design of the bass was changed to be more practical. In the 1920’s, Lloyd Loar, working for Gibson, designed the first ‘electric…

  • Basic Guitar Chord

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:59 am
    The basic guitar chords you’ll learn on this post form the foundation of today’s guitar playing. I call them beginner guitar chords, but they are used everyday by beginners as well as advanced players and in all styles of music. Beginners should practice these chords until they have memorized them and are able to switch between them fluidly. Open chords (some call them folk chords) are usually the first thing a beginning guitar player learns.  This doesn’t mean that these beginner guitar chords are very easy: learning to get those left hand fingers work together and…

    I came across "Calendar" by Treelines earlier today while listening to an Indie-Rock/Alternative Compilation made by Alexrainbird, and I haven't been able to get this song out of my head since. To be honest, it wasn't even fair. When the song opened with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica I was already hooked. By the time the stomping and clapping started, I was already opening my wallet.

It started off pretty slow and subtle, but as the song went on I found myself more and more enthralled with this unbelievably talented blues musician. "Your Love Will Blow Me Away When Your Heart Aches" won't be winning any awards for shortest song title any time soon, but if Son

I've never heard of it before, but it is a B-listers wet dream. I'll be honest, one of the more entertaining parts of the film is seeing all of the familiar actors who show up in every scene, and you're just kind of sitting there the whole movie
