Did you ever hear a song you have not heard in a while and once you hear it, past thoughts (good or bad) flood your brain like a overflowing sink (I couldn't think of anything else that overflows don't judge me, lol)?

    Damen Norton
    26 Feb 2015 | 7:44 pm
    In his later years, Harrison Ford may be putting on a grumpy old man face around the press, but secretly, he’s a fanboy at heart.  Not just a regular fanboy, but a fanboy who is eager to see sequels to his own movies get made.  It started with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, and later this year, it continues with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  His other big genre film was Ridley Scott’s dreamy 1982 action/sci-fi thriller Blade Runner where Ford starred as Rick Deckard – a “blade runner” hired to track down and destroy four replicants who…

    To me, the most inventive genre of any medium is science fiction.  With an endless well of story possibilities, and an intelligence that seems absent from most other types of fiction, it always seems to find a way to deliver big ideas in a way that audiences can appreciate.  An exciting crop of young filmmakers are working to make original sci-fi films and television shows in this new century, and leading the pack is Neill Blomkamp.  The South African director has dazzled audiences with his last two films District 9 and Elysium, and has emerged as one of the most cutting-edge filmmakers…

    While I’m typically not a fan of YA film adaptations, I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised that I rather enjoyed Divergent, the first installment of a new franchise based on the books by author Veronica Roth.  The story is very interesting, and it has a pretty stellar cast that includes Oscar-nominee Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jai Courtney, and Miles Teller.  The movie was an instant smash, and after generally positive reviews from critics, it was almost instantaneously that Summit Entertainment greenlit the follow-up.And so it is, pretty soon we’ll see the heroic…

    Everybody remembers the finale of Rocky where the titular amateur boxer is defeated by champion Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), and instead of lamenting his loss, Rocky instead embraces his beloved Adrian among a sea of fans and reporters.  It’s a touching moment, and it made Rocky one of the most beloved films of the last half century.  It’s also the movie that made Sylvester Stallone a star.  In the years since the first film was released, many more sequels followed, but none of them ever quite matched up to the heart of the debut.  Stallone tried to recapture some of that…

For SiriusXM, increasing car sales is always a good sign.  The satellite radio provider garners most of its subscribers and exposure from people buying new cars that are equipped with satellite radio.  About two thirds of all new cars incorporate satellite radio…

    So we’re talking about Nimoy, huh? Okay. Fine. But how about this. Let’s not talk about Spock; or at least, let’s talk about Spock at a remove. The Star Trek franchise was at yet another crossroads between life and death. The public and critical support for The Wrath Of Khan made it relevant again. The scene-chewing in The Search For Spock dropped it back down to its metaphorical knees. Paramount needed a savior for its franchise, but the company was also crazy enough to say yes to virtually anything. And here it is: turn it into an ecology-loving, screwball romantic comedy.

Records (the parent label) was never put on CD – never included in any Bangles compilations and so on.  Certainly, “The Real World” was an instant classic and to me, the track that put The Bangles on the map.  So since the advent of compact discs and then digital, those five songs from their earlier, more…

Audrey and the Teenettes got together in Philly in the late ’50s. The original lineup included Rosetta Hightower, Marlena Davis, and the three Brickley sisters — Audrey, Jean, and Shirley. Audrey was only 13 at the time and the mother of the Brickley girls didn’t think it was a good idea for her little girl to be singing in clubs.

Simmons, Editor Tom Cross and Sound Mixers Craig Mann, Ben Wilkins and Thomas Curley all won Oscars for their work on Whiplash, but it was Chazelle’s vision and passion that got them on the awards stage. Not only does he capture the drive it takes to become a professional musician, but he shows the physicality involved to become one of the few to play at Lincoln Center.

Here, the famous Twilight Zone narrator reconciles the ideas of commercialism and creativity as the house beat fades in and Emma Louise sings straight to your soul. I don’t blame the Australian duo for kicking their album off this way. Coming from a country that has been (much like the US) completely and totally overrun by run of the mill EDM trash, it’s easy to see how Flight…

    Kyma 7 in Four Minutes from Symbolic Sound on Vimeo. Somewhere apart from the general purpose computer, the standalone electronic instrument, the racks of modulars, there is Kyma. For nearly a quarter century, this boutique digital instrument has opened up sonic realms to a scattered illuminati of artists. And this week, it hit a new milestone, with functionality and resources intended to make sound exploration still broader and more accessible. Three years in development, Kyma 7 is here. The buzz around modular often comes back to the same refrain: modular is cool because it’s open…
  • Kraftwerk Live Rig Exposed – But Are They Really Checking Email?

    Peter Kirn
    27 Feb 2015 | 7:23 am
    (Short answer: no, they aren’t.) So, the thing about Amsterdam’s Paradiso is, there are balconies. And the thing about being in a balcony above Kraftwerk is, their once-secret live rig for their 3D show is now fully exposed. The next question: what’s happening? I have been squinting at this live video for some time, and I’m not sure. Some things are obvious: definitely MK I Maschine drum machine controllers from Native Instruments, definitely a MIDI keyboard for the odd solo, fairly certain I also spot a Novation ReMOTE ZeRO SL controller (encoders and faders and red…
  • Here’s What Korg’s $99 SQ-1 Step Sequencer Can Do [In Depth Guide]

    Peter Kirn
    25 Feb 2015 | 4:19 pm
    It costs just a hundred bucks. It’s tiny, in a metal case with ultra-compact knobs and light-up buttons for hands-on control. And with MIDI, USB, CV, and even dedicated littleBits ins and outs, there’s a reason I described the announcement of KORG’s new SQ-1 sequencer as a sequencer that does everything. But doing everything in such a little box is a tall order. And the SQ-1 packs in so much, it’s not obvious what its capabilities can be. One one hand, there are some powerful features that you might completely miss (like MIDI-to-CV capabilities). On the other, it has…

  • Hands on with the Ableton Live 9.2 Tuner [Video]

    Peter Kirn

    Hey, sometimes it’s the simple things. I was going to write something, but – well, it’s a tuner. Watch the film, from Ableton Liveschool. And I have to say, Ableton has found a way to make this Device more interesting than previous Max for Live efforts. It even has a histogram. Perhaps the most newsworthy element here – a sign of the times – is that the resurgence of analog synthesizers has meant that tuning outboard hardware is now again an application for tuners. You’ll see in the video here an example with the classic MOOG Minimoog, but see the…

This breaks his own record of 14 songs on the chart at one time (which he matched last week), to give you an idea of how insane this is.

Anyway, apparently LA is the one to point the finger at if you wanna know why Shmurda is still in jail, slowly losing his career one day at a time. I don’t know who the rapper is, but there is a rapper somewhere calling LA out and saying he will body the music mogul for not posting the money that will free Shmurda.

The actor played the stoic alien character for years, helping propel Star Trek into a television, film and cult classic franchise.

Adi Lederman, who three years ago tried out for Israel's then-top-rated TV singing competition Kochav Nolad (A Star Is Born), was charged with computer trespassing, prohibited secret monitoring, copyright infringement and obstructing investigation, The Hollywood Reporter writes.

  • ITV defends decision to censor Kanye West's Brit Awards performance

    27 Feb 2015 | 11:35 am
    ITV has defended its decision to repeatedly mute Kanye West during his Brit Awards performance, stating that it is "standard practice" to protect audiences from inappropriate language. West ran through a new track called 'All Day', which is to appear on his upcoming new album. However, due to a large number of curse words, much of the song was muted in the nearly-live TV coverage, leading to anger and criticism from viewers. "ITV took the decision to use an audio mute during the performance," a statement from ITV reads. "The Brits is broadcast live on ITV from 8pm to a wide audience. We have…

    Robin Thicke performed a medley of songa by artists including U2, Bob Marley and The Beatles as the first day of the 'Blurred Lines' trial began. Gaye's estate and Thicke are engaged in a legal battle with Gaye's children accusing Thicke's transatlantic Number One hit 'Blurred Lines' of ripping off 'Got To Give It Up', a 1977 single by the late soul singer. Thicke was the first witness to take to the stand in Los Angeles yesterday (February 25) and is reported to have performed a number of songs in the court room as evidence that many songs share similar chords and melodies without…
  • Music world reacts to Madonna's fall during her performance at the Brit Awards

    27 Feb 2015 | 11:35 am
    The music world has reacted with a mixture of surprise, sympathy and humour to Madonna's fall during her Brit Awards performance. Closing out the show at the awards ceremony at The O2 in London last night (February 25), the singer was performing her new single 'Living For Love' when she took a fall from the stage down a flight of stairs. As part of her routine Madonna stood on top of a platform on stage and attempted to untie the floor-length cape she was wearing. Backing dancers attempted to remove the garment, instead dragging her backwards down three steps. Madonna was forced to stop…

    Death From Above 1979 played a deafening 80-minute set for the NME Awards With Austin, Texas shows at London's Brixton Academy last night (February 25), including a fan request in the encore. With Sebastian Grainger hammering at his kit in white dungarees and Jesse F Keeler thrusting feedback out of his amps and tearing hell chords from his guitar, the pair delivered a thunderous show, opening with 'Turn It On' and 'Right On, Frankenstein!'. The only let-up in the onslaught came with Grainger’s between-song banter. "We’re from Toronto, Canada, one of your loyal colonies," he said before a…

This one will appear on Leon’s timeless debut full-length, recorded in his hometown of Fort Worth, TX with Austin Jenkins and Josh Block of White Denim, due in late summer ’15 on Columbia.

    It’s hardly a secret that comic book films are now stacked with Hollywood’s hottest hunks and babes (Chris Hemsworth, Zoe Saldana, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson). But in the last couple of years, geekdomania has veritably become a celebrity badge of honor, with a-listers of every stripe seemingly quite eager to flaunt their inner nerd. This has played out most evidently in mainstreaming of cosplay culture, with Lena Dunham, Neil Patrick Harris, Jaden Smith, Daniel Radcliffe, Shannon Woodward, Bryan Cranston, and most enthusiastically Katy Perry (we loved her as Freddie Mercury) all…

Written by Bruce Wagner, the dryly ironic and seedy exploration of Hollywood stars recent Oscar winner (and always engaging actress) Julianne Moore, alongside a stellar cast featuring John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Robert Pattinson. The film has already been recognized as a different playing field for Cronenberg, as his films usually take place in settings more confined, or filmed near his hometown of Toronto. But, in truth, Maps to the Stars has many…

    Sportmax showed a sumptuous collection brimming with rich fabrics. Cognac leather coats and warm camel wraps stayed cinched at the waist, tied by leather knots–a detail that carried throughout most of the show’s looks. Still, by no means did it feel stuffy. Edges were unfinished or decked out in fringe, while sweaters dangled off shoulders and featured slouchy sleeves that skimmed the models’ fingertips. Black floral prints on day dresses were repeated in eye-catching evening wear appliqués. But the piece that got all the smart phones in a frenzy? A sweater with the same…

So after the shows, we’re always keen for a zip down to the Eternal City, to take in beauty of a more historical sort. And there’s nowhere we’d rather stay than the impossibly chic Hotel de Russie. One of the jewels of the venerated Rocco Forte Collection, we are ever taken in by its ethereal 18th Century terraced gardens (pictured above), its elegantly sexy rooms and its buzzy Tridente location—which also…

    Up until a few years ago there weren’t many options for independent songwriters to collect mechanical royalties. Performance royalties were (relatively) easy to get. Simply sign up (and register all your songs) with a PRO like ASCAP, BMI or SOCAN (in Canada). But mechanical royalties are tougher. What are mechanical royalties you ask? You’ve heard that 9.1 cents is owed to the publisher/songwriter for every download or sale for the mechanical royalty, but what about streams? And International mechanical royalties are handled differently altogether. Mechanical Royalty breakdown in…

    There aren’t too many bands that have as expansive of a discography as Of Montreal. Not only has the group’s mastermind Kevin Barnes cranked out album after album for the better part of the last two decades, but he has reinvented himself almost as often—from his early, lo-fi indie-pop days à la Elephant 6, to the synth driven Sunlandic Twins, from the revelatory and introspective Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? into an almost immediate 360 with the introduction of his alter-ego Georgie Fruit. That just brings up to Skeletal Lamping, Of Montreal’s first No. 1 on the…

NPR's Elise Hu provided a bit of clarity in layman's terms: "Net Neutrality is the concept that your Internet provider should be a neutral gateway to everything on the Internet, not a gatekeeper deciding to load some sites slower than others or impose fees for faster service."

    Good PR isn't cheap. Nor is it free. If you can't afford a legit PR campaign, then chances are you might not be ready for it... but at the same time, it's also extremely difficult to elevate yourself or your band without some good PR behind you. Guest Post by Amy Sciarretto on Sonicbids Blog It's a classic "chicken or the egg" conundrum. Bands often ask me about how to get PR, and I often say that gigging, local buzz, and management must come first. Some balk at having to take those steps or say that they can't afford PR, but I've seen many bands figure out a way to get scrimp, save,…

    I really like Audible – the downloadable audiobook store owned by Amazon. We’ve been Gold members for many years, paying $15 (promotional rate) per month, which entitles us to one audiobook per month. As it turns out, we don’t download one audio book per month. Audiobooks tend to be more occasional for us; we don’t think about them until we want one right now - like when we’re about to take a car trip. This type of use case really works better with an ala carte system rather than a membership approach, but buying audiobooks ala carte is expensive (typically,…
  • Consider the Bean: Simple Bean-Cooking Tips and an Easy Winter Meal

    George Howard
    11 Jan 2015 | 5:34 pm
    I’ve been super into cooking beans these days. Certainly, this has something to do with trying to eat largely vegan, but I also just really love beans. My general bean thesis (gbt) is that you don’t have to do much to the beans during the cooking process to get them tasting pretty good, and that what matters most is what you do after you cook them. This is a carry-over from when I was cooking a lot of meat; I never bought into the whole marinade for flavor concept. Certainly, some tough cuts of meat benefit from sitting in something acidic prior to hitting the heat, but this really has…
  • It’s REALLY time to ditch the rented Comcast Modem and buy your own

    George Howard
    8 Jan 2015 | 3:09 pm
    As their monopolistic practices regarding content come under fire from forthcoming OTT services like Sling TV, Comcast, unsurprisingly, is attempting to extract more revenue from customers via other “services.” To wit, as, Ars Technica noticed, Comcast recently upped their modem rental fee from $8 to $10 per month. The whole idea of modem rental is a business model predicated on information asymmetry. That is, most customers don’t realize either that they’re actually renting the modem at all or that they could buy their own modem. The internet tends to…
  • Chasing the Thrill: Miles Davis ‘Round About Midnight Vinyl

    George Howard
    24 Nov 2014 | 5:53 pm
    [The Chasing the Thrill posts chronicle my adventures in trying to capture that ephemeral moment when song and audio fidelity come together into a sound that makes me forget everything else. Mostly it will be my notes on the vinyl that I listen to, but may include some non-vinyl music moments as well. If you’re interested in the set up I use to listen on, here it is.]     Like Rumours, which I recently wrote about, there’s not much that need be said about ‘Round About Midnight. It is as exciting to hear today as it was when released in 1956. If you’re…
  • Play vinyl with Sonos

    George Howard
    23 Nov 2014 | 4:20 pm
    Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some Sonos. We’ve got pretty much every product they’ve come up with in the house, and just can’t imagine living without it. I recently decided that I wanted to add the ability to play vinyl into our arsenal (the kids are old enough so that they don’t seem too inclined to try to ride/draw on the turntable). I’d been plotting my vinyl strategy out over the course of many years of insomnia-nights, and so when I finally decided to pull the trigger, it went very smoothly. I’ve had in my possession an old Victrola that…

  • Iggy (Azalea) pop: Is cultural appropriation inappropriate?

    VictoriaD
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:30 am
    Popular music is much more than mere entertainment—it helps us make sense of who we are or who we hope to be. Although music is but one of pop culture’s media outlets, our tendency to embody and take ownership of sound—whether through our headphones, MP3 downloads, dancing, or singing—often makes it difficult to separate our personal connection to popular music from the cultural context in which it was created. But if we listen carefully to its reverberation throughout the nation, we might better understand how the subconscious of our society is shaped by what gets recorded and…
  • The art of musical arrangements

    SoniaT
    24 Feb 2015 | 1:30 am
    ‘I write arrangements, I’m sort of a wannabe composer’ – consciously or otherwise, these words from violinist Joshua Bell seem to give voice to the tension between these two interlocking musical activities. For arrangement and composition are interlocked, as composers throughout the ages have arranged, adapted, revised, and generally played free with musical compositions of all kinds (their own and other people’s) for reasons artistic, practical, or downright commercial. If an arrangement is – in the definition of New Grove – ‘the reworking of a musical composition, usually…
  • Great man drumming: Birdman, Whiplash, and myth of the male artist

    Raquel Fernandes
    19 Feb 2015 | 3:30 am
    Among this year’s Oscar nominees for Best Picture were two films with drum scores: Whiplash, in which a highly regarded but abusive conductor molds an aspiring young jazz musician into the genius he was meant to be, and Birdman, in which an aging film actor who was never a genius at all stars in a play and possibly flies. In spite of their innovative soundtracks, neither film received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score. In the case of Whiplash this was unsurprising; the film’s key scenes use jazz standards, not new music. However, the exclusion of Birdman was controversial. The…

    Alice
    17 Feb 2015 | 1:30 am
    The scraps of an archive often speak in ways that standard histories cannot. In 2005, I spent my days at the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel, a leading archive for twentieth-century concert music, where I transcribed the papers of the German-Jewish émigré composer Stefan Wolpe (1902-1971). The task was alternately exhilarating and grim. Wolpe had made fruitful connections with creators and thinkers across three continents, from Paul Klee to Anton Webern to Hannah Arendt to Charlie Parker. An introspective storyteller and exuberant synthesizer of ideas, Wolpe narrated a history of modernism…
  • The 10 best shows for music directors, in no particular order, for several reasons

    Raquel Fernandes
    15 Feb 2015 | 1:30 am
    Listing the ten best shows for a music director to work on is as subjective as choosing the ten greatest composers, or painters, or novelists, so it’s worthwhile to stipulate some qualities the winners must have, subjectively speaking. These qualities can only reveal themselves by working through the reasoning of what makes a show a music director’s favorite. Of the many musicals I’ve attended in recent years, among the most enjoyable and perhaps the funniest was Monty Python’s Spamalot. The music cues come fast and furious, and in all varieties, from classical quodlibets to Spike…

I can hardly bring myself to write this, because I do not yet accept it, but my dear friend Andrew Patner, one of the wisest, wittiest, most generous, most avid, most altogether vital people in the world of the arts, died this morning in Chicago, at the age of fifty-five. It was a constant joy to have Andrew in my life, and it was an endless, enriching education. He offered advice, he offered criticism, he offered time, he offered knowledge (staggeringly encyclopedic knowledge, on every imaginable subject), and, above all, he offered companionship. I feel lost and…

    Okay. So after spending all week moving to a new blogging platform and getting things up and running, I found out that I have too much traffic and actually need something a little more powerful in terms of hosting to ensure a speedy site. Really? Who knew?  That’s a great thing and an annoying thing all rolled up in one. Crazy to think what would happen to the NashvilleGab if I actually worked on it on a regular basis. I’d be rich! LOL. So guess what I’m going to be doing this weekend. Changing host providers, which means a bunch of friggin’ extra website work.

Move. is on film. Talk about pressure. Geez. Well, last month Taylor went on a vacation to Hawaii and to everyone’s surprise she posted a plethora of photos from her time there. And one of those was a coveted bikini photo showing off the “Style’ singers’ belly button.

Turns out Blake Shelton and Adam Levine decided to give fans their very own Swiftmas-inspired gifts.  However, you can tell by the looks on the faces of the lucky (?) fans that the results were a tad bit different than with Taylor’s fans. Too funny! Watch and laugh. Watch. And. Laugh! “The Voice” is back for season 8. Be sure to tune in Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.

It was the 30th anniversary of Woodstock, a monumental aquarian celebration that took place more than 300 kilometres away, geographically speaking. Spiritually speaking, it might as well have happened on another planet. While the original Woodstock was rightly billed as "three days of peace and music," Woodstock '99 was its antithesis: four days of excess, violence and corporatization. It came to symbolize the end of an era — the death of…

  • Vocal Strain: What is it? What can you do about it?

    Judy Rodman
    19 Feb 2015 | 5:14 pm
    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...

  • Numb Singing Or Speaking Voice? Question: What Are You LOOKING At?

    Judy Rodman
    12 Jan 2015 | 5:29 am
      This is yet another post I want to do on eyes for the voice. Bare with me, but as a vocal coach for singers and speakers, I talk a lot about eyes. This is because the sound of your voice can be dramatically changed by what the 'windows of your soul' are focused on. Even a great blind singer speaks with eye language, moving tissue behind and around the orbs of the eyes. Like an athletic event, when the eye is unfocused, movement creating vocal sound is, too. Like a camera eye must choose its focus, you must learn to choose your message delivery point, zoom in like a laser and block out…

    Every artistic medium has its set of purists. Theatre is no different; ergo, it is obvious that there will be many who won’t entirely agree with CinePlay, a new genre of theatre or films. CinePlay combines cinema and theatre – they direct plays in a studio set-up to create movies and trailers out of them. CinePlay is the brainchild of Subodh Maskara, CEO and founder, and Nandita Das, co-founder and strategic director.

  • Review: Pariah – Frame/Frame

    Ritwik Deshpande
    23 Feb 2015 | 12:41 am
    While Nikhil Kaul can’t make his apocalyptic obsessions more obvious, it’s clear that his definition of the word ‘apocalypse’ extends to matters both personal and worldly. He borrowed the title of his last release, Hard Boiled Wonderland, from a Murakami novel in which the protagonist faces the prospect of being trapped in his subconscious for the rest of his life. The release itself sounded subdued and insular — Kaul had squarely fixed his sights inwards. The relative expansiveness of its follow-up, Pariah, is made immediately apparent by the cover. The me-against-the-world image…

  • REVIEW: “Losing Ground”: An intimate look at a black woman’s long-awaited film

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

Featured was the French coming-of-age narrative film Girlhood, an already much-talked about examination of a young Black girl living on the outskirts of Paris and her quest for a better life away from her abusive home situation. In that previous write-up, my fear was that Girlhood would be a misguided outsider’s view, with the writer/director being a White woman, of the problems a young Black girl faces in a city that is continuously unsupportive of Black lives –…

  • Scoring the Song: Emergency Story Penguin

    Heather
    15 Feb 2015 | 5:38 am
    Image © Sarah Zagni 2015 December, I took a break. A holiday! A blissful, four-week interlude to reflect on the old and prepare for the new. January, I hit the ground running. 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. I realised that for a 1-hour-long-show there was a lot of music to be written, and so I had to get on that writing pretty quickly. It was clear that the main song was the first order of business, the heart of the score, and an important starting point…

And, *spoiler warning* the mole gets the upper hand at the end so of course I loved it.

Earlier in the year I worked on ‘The Aviatrix’ (at the time, its working title was ‘Capetown to Goodwood’), a feature-length documentary about Tracey Curtis-Taylor’s recreation of Lady Heath’s first female-piloted biplane flight from South Africa to the UK in 1928.

  • Remembering Tom McKinley (1938-2015): A Personal Reflection

    Marc Rossi
    24 Feb 2015 | 8:10 am
    William Thomas McKinley was a true American original and, to my knowledge, the first American classical composer who was also a major post-bop jazz pianist. He abolished this duality and saw creative music from a perspective of higher unity. Tom demonstrated how, musically and spiritually, one could embrace both—through notes, gestures, and at every imaginable level.

    There are highly visible musicians who are bravely sticking their necks out. They are not programming what the audience wants, they are programming what the audience needs. Contrast this with the classical groups that program rock or pop transcriptions and advertise it as out-of-the-box thinking.

Its message of self-confidence is bolstered by assertive electronica and a thumping backbeat. “Doesn’t matter if I fall,” she sings, “Gonna make it through it all.” Ebony is an alumna of the world-famous Walt Whitman and the Soul Children of Chicago, a group she joined in 2000 at age eight.

  • Album Review: ‘Pop2!’, Dana Countryman

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

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

The interpreter is Wyatt Funderburk, one of the newest members of a revamped Explorers Club that has changed with each album. The band has almost completed its third album, slated for release in late summer. Brewer met Funderburk, who was already an Explorers Club fan, on Facebook, and the two used to trade spins on the now-defunct turntable.fm. When Brewer moved to Nashville, he asked Funderburk to be in the new…

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

  • Casa Cavia - Buenos Aires

    23 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    The recently opened Casa Cavia in the Palermo Chico neighborhood of Buenos Aires is an enchanting fusion of sights, sounds, tastes and eras. Now operating as a brand new assembly of a restaurant, publishing house, bookstore, flower shop and perfumery, Casa Cavia is housed in what was known as the Bollini Roca residence, designed in the gilded age of the 1920s as a personal gift to the owner’s wife by the Spanish-born architect and artist Alejandro Christophersen of Norwegian parentage. The founder and creator of the Casa Cavia concept, Guadalupe Garcia Mosqueda with book publisher Ana…
  • Carusel Bookstore - Bucharest, Romania

    16 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Some of us go weak in the knees at the sight of a new bookstore or library. Such was certainly the case when we glanced at Cărtureşti Carusel bookstore, opened on February 12 on Lipscani Street in Bucharest’s historical Old Town, also often called just Lipscani. The magnificent Chrissoveloni bank building, now owned by Jen Chrissoveloni, the great-grandson of the 19th century banker, created a magnificent starting point for the retail project. According to the Romanian media, the current owner invested 1 million Euro in the renovation and leased the building to the Cărtureşti…
  • Villa Moos - Lake Constance, Germany

    9 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Villa Moos by Lake Constance (Bodensee) at the northern foot of the Alps draws our attention with its building-block appearance and foreboding façade.   And yet, surprisingly, with these almost semi-brutalist intentions, the look of heaviness does not follow.   Instead, there’s a delightful mood of lightness, almost of semi-permanence. It seems as if the entire structure could be a fold-up affair made of exceptionally strong origami paper or very light sheets of card board, ready for packing up and carting elsewhere. But as we know metal and glass are the main…

    Light and the absence of distractions drew us to this great little project. Absolute is an elegant 42 square-metre (42 asg.t.) florist shop on a nicely treed stretch of a boutique-lined street in Shanghai, China. Architects Kong Rui and Fan Beilei, who founded Genarchitects in 2012, have created a peaceful, airy space by combining a small rectangular room with an adjoining front courtyard. The design team, that included Chen Xiaoyi, Xue Zhe and You Wei as well, removed the dividing wall and covered the courtyard with a glass roof whichadds not just more room but more light to the otherwise…

    Everyone has advice about how to succeed, but there's a lot we forget to mention. Everyone wants to be successful. It’s grafted into our DNA to want to achieve, to accomplish and add significance to our lives. Even if it’s hard for you to admit that you want to be successful, take a moment to think about it. You may not want to be the next pop star, but you probably want to be a successful parent, successful at your career and successful in relationships. And can be a good thing, but it doesn’t always look like we think. Here are a few things you don’t always hear about success:
  • Leonard Nimoy, RIP

    Anonymous
    27 Feb 2015 | 9:39 am
    Leonard Nimoy, the legendary sci-fi icon who portrayed Mr. Spock in the original Star Trek series, has passed away in his home in Bel Air. He was 83. His wife confirmed that he had succumbed to end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a condition Mr. Nimoy had announced he had last year. Nimoy was a poet and photographer in addition to being an actor, but his Mr. Spock was one of pop culture's most celebrated figures. A deeply logical, almost robot-like member of the Starship Enterprise, his inability to process emotion endeared him to his crew and his millions of fans. Indeed, he was…

    You’ve likely seen selfies of social media friends with big red X’s on their hands today. The awareness efforts are part of the End It campaign, an initiative to fight human trafficking around the world, help victims and teach others about the terrible realities of modern human trafficking. Along with the selfie campaign, activists are encouraging others to make a $7 donation (or collect groups of friends in teams who will donate), that will go to support projects that rescue and restore victims and help fund the fight against global human trafficking.

    4 ways we can work to end human trafficking. Today hundreds of thousands of people are going to put an “X” on the back of their hand. Do you know why? Because we’re part of a massive group of people who wants to see an end to slavery. Unfortunately, many people will stop there: with that “X”—either because they don’t know what else to do or because they don’t feel adequate enough to do more.

    31 Jan 2015 | 4:00 pm
    This was actually a private email to a good friend. But he loved it and forwarded it to some people, and they all suggested I should post it on my site. Hey B - A few months ago I was in a really bad place. Really upset ALL the time about the whole situation. Couldn’t think straight. Very reactionary. Wanting to make some big drastic change, just to ease the discomfort of uncertainty — that pain of living with an unknown future. You’re definitely in that place now. So here’s how I got out. Maybe it helps. #1. Ask myself “What’s wrong RIGHT NOW?” — this very second. Am I in…
  • How to change or build your career

    Derek Sivers
    5 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    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,…
  • Fixed mindset vs Growth mindset

    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…

    Most of the time I feel smart, successful, and driven - like I’ve got it all figured out. But last month a bunch of stuff knocked me on my ass. I’ve never felt so wrong. I vulnerably called on friends for help. Amber reminded me to pull my head out of today, and think long-term again. Jeff told me to get my swagger back and relish the moment. Ariel said I should really accept and feel this pain, instead of moving on so fast like I always do. Each different perspective made me feel good for a while, then I’d fall back into the whirlpool of destructive thoughts. Whenever something’s…
  • The philosophy of great customer service

    Derek Sivers

    I was honestly surprised that my company, CD Baby, was such a runaway success. But I was even more surprised to find out why. CD Baby had lots of powerful well-funded competitors, but after a few years they were all but gone, and we dominated our niche of selling independent music. 150,000 musicians, 2 million music-buying customers, $139 million in revenue, $83 million paid directly to musicians. What was the secret to CD Baby’s success? I never did any marketing. Everyone came by word-of-mouth. But why? I honestly didn’t know. So whenever I was out talking with my musician clients,…

A nice pairing with companion track, Elevation this tune has a lonely quality, in a mournful reflective sort of way. Probably inspired by a track from 2001’s Lateralus by progressive art-metal band, Tool as the recording dates run in close proximity it’s safe to assume that Tool fans will like it. Do you Tool fans?

    3 Jan 2015 | 4:25 am
    This past month my monthly radio mix for German station PULS was converted into a new years eve pre-party special. So instead of airing the first Saturday of the month like usually it aired on Dec. 31st accompanying everyone on their new years celebrations. The mix includes the regular dose of twerk and trap edits, new and classics rap and r&b songs and a couple of other surprises. You can stream the mix in it’s entirety below.
  • Classics need Beastin (Mix)

    DJ Hotsauce
    28 Dec 2014 | 2:42 am
    The infamous BSTN Soundsystem consisting of DJ Hotsauce, DJ Dime, DJ Kitsune, DJ A-Les & DJ Dumbo Beats returns with another banging mix. To go along with Beastin’s current quickstrike “needs Beastin” collection we came up with the idea of finally knocking out our hop hop classics mix as a “classics need Beastin” theme. Each DJ chose a era or clique he would want to work with and then compiled everything into a 12 minute mix. At the end we came up with a 60 minute mix including classics from Bad Boy, Roc-a-fella, Ruff Ryders, DipSet and of course the ATL.

  • If You Like Joy, Watch Sam Rockwell Dancing

    Elisabeth Donnelly
    27 Feb 2015 | 11:49 am
    Sam Rockwell dancing is one of the pleasures of life. No matter what film he’s in, he’s always busting a move at some point, moving with a fluid grace that, in, some ways, sums up his charm in a nutshell. There are multitudes of videos devoted to this man’s moves, and even a blog called “Fuck yeah Sam Rockwell dancing.” Shockingly enough, it’s taken a very long time for a band to take advantage of this talent, until today.  The electronic duo Flight Facilities got Rockwell to dance for a video called “Down to Earth,” which is the title track…
  • Watch: Jennifer Hudson Arrests Iggy Azalea in New Video for “Trouble”

    Shane Barnes
    27 Feb 2015 | 10:19 am
    The past few months have seen Iggy Azalea in the headlines, sure, but not really for any new music, and mostly for losing Grammy awards and being the subject of constant scrutiny from other members of the hip hop community. Today brings us the music video for “Trouble,” a new song from her November reissue of The New Classic, titled Reclassified, that features the ever-important pipes of Jennifer Hudson. The song apes a neo-soul beat and features pretty low-key rap verses from Iggy while the chorus (and song, really) belong to Hudson, who should definitely not be a…

    Electronic dance music will never die, man — especially if Diplo, Skrillex, and a lot of America has anything to say about it. The latest, most hyped EDM album is one by Jack Ü, which is just Skrillex and Diplo twistin’ knobs, pushin’ buttons, and droppin’ beats, accompanied by various superstar musicians (Justin Bieber, Missy Elliott, 2 Chainz, Kiesza, etc.). The album, titled Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü, “dropped” during the duo’s 24-hour DJ set (which was cut short by police after 18 hours, unfortunately, dudes). It’s available on iTunes…

    The idea of writing a song lyric as a letter is one that’s as old as music itself, but if you’re like Flavorwire, you may have occasionally found yourself wondering: what if the recipient of the song in question wrote back? What might they have to say? Wonder no longer, dear readers, because through the magic of a program that grants access to the the hitherto undiscovered secret archives of rock (aka Photoshop CS5), here are the unseen responses to a bunch of our favorite “letter” songs.

    Not that the world ever forgot about Missy Elliott, but the world was certainly reminded of her pure excellence after this year’s Super Bowl, where she effectively stole the show from headliner Katy Perry. That performance and its medley of hits (“Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It,” “Lose Control”) had all of us hankering for some more of that good stuff Missy last gave us in 2005’s The Cookbook. Good news, then! Elliott tweeted a photo with Pharrell, who she collaborated with on The Cookbook‘s “On & On.” There’s no concrete…

We described his debut tunes by noting that Bridges “doesn’t just reclaim the sounds of early Southern soul and gospel, he writes songs as if he were possessed by the ghost of Sam Cooke himself.” That continues to prove true on his latest single “Lisa Sawyer.” The jams a tribute to his mother and it’s damn pretty. Since he debuted on the scene this past October, he’s signed with Columbia and recorded an album of material due…

    This post was first published in 2010, but the advice and experiences are still very relevant to musicians navigating the current music business.   You’re in music. You are frustrated with the industry, and on days where you are honest enough to admit it, you are jealous of several of the seemingly-talentless hacks that sit atop the pop charts. Here are some of the conclusions I have come to about my career path in and out of music.   Sometime in the last year or so I was aimlessly flipping through 400 channels of nothing when I noticed a familiar face on TV.

    Question: Hi Neal, Is there always some discomfort in your bottom lip from your teeth digging in, I am finding after practicing for 40 – 60mins my bottom lip is pretty tender. -Brett Neal: That depends on how exactly you’re playing. I think I used to have more discomfort in my bottom lip from the same thing happening. But some time back, I began to somewhat stick my bottom lip farther forward. Sounds like you’re also applying more pressure than is needed. So try curling your bottom lip a little less and using a bit less pressure. It will feel different at first, but probably…

One of the screws on my sax broke and my neck piece moves around but I can still play normally like I used to. It’s as if no screws are tightening the neck piece. My question is will this affect my sound? -Miguel Neal: Short answer: yes. Longer answer has to do with understanding what both of those screws does. One of those screws tightens the connection with the neck. The other does…

That would make you focus on one thing, which is trying to get a better tone and playing around with control. That is something you really should do, but it becomes easy to shift your attention to your fingers once you have the whole saxophone and then the tone may get overlooked for a while. Once your fingers are involved, they are directly linked to your sound. So how you move your fingers can…

It’s not that I didn’t like the music – on the contrary, much of the material I have heard over the years always struck me as being both visceral and a little bit bonkers; one of my all time favourite combinations – more that I’d never found the right activities for them to become the soundtrack to. SFA were always a band I had a respectful admiration for, but had never invested enough time to truly become a fan. So, when the…

It’s fun to view the parades, appreciate the beauty of the costumes, laugh at the drunks, catch beads ‘n’ crap, dance to the marching bands and Mardi Gras music, visit with your neighbors, meet new people in the crowd. But. I have to tell you that Mardi Gras can be a royal pain in the ass. People in New Orleans accept it, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t bitch about it.

    Mardi Gras has often been called the “Greatest Free Show on Earth,” and I don’t think anyone could possibly argue with that. A New Orleanian’s greatest pleasures is people- watching during Mardi Gras, whether it be girls gone wild in the Quarter, the St. Ann Street Parade, family costumes on St. Charles Avenue, marching bands—you get the picture (pun intended). Having spent most of my life in New Orleans, I also know that everyone here is into “free” stuff. Come to think of it, maybe the obsession with free is another manifestation of the so-called Mardi Gras Mentality.

    “Run Run Run” is the new song by Kelly Clarkson and it is a beautiful one. The track isn’t original since it was earlier recorded by the German band Tokio Hotel. We don’t know yet why Kelly choose to come out with her own version instead of an original. But despite that criticism, Kelly Clarkson […] Read the full post at All-Noise.co.uk - New Music: “Run Run Run” by Kelly Clarkson featuring John Legend

  • The Tallest Man on Earth: Sagres

    admin
    24 Feb 2015 | 1:07 pm
    The Tallest Man on Earth has shared the first preview of Dark Bird Is Home, Kristian Matsson’s new LP due in May. “Sagres” — named after a small Portuguese village — drops the intimate, fingerpicked folk guitar and singing of his earlier work in exchange for lush strings, a traveling beat, and an echo-washed vocal. It’s a lovely fresh step, recalling Phosphorescent’s expanded sonic palette of late. Hear it above.
  • Alabama Shakes: Don’t Wanna Fight

    admin
    20 Feb 2015 | 4:20 pm
    Not long after we introduced the Shakes, they changed their name to Alabama Shakes, blew up in the press, and seemed eager to brush off the retro-soul label. A 2012 Zeppelin cover drove the point home further that this is a rock band, through and through, bound to subvert expectations. Well, here’s our first taste of the second record — or, as I’d like to call it, the post-breakthrough debut. On the surface it brings labelmates the Arctic Monkeys to mind a bit (dueling, stereo-panned electric guitars, etc.), but beneath that it’s simply a great band with a…
  • SOAK: Sea Creatures

    admin
    26 Jan 2015 | 11:38 am
    Derry/Londonderry singer-songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson first hit our radar last year with an incredibly promising debut EP, Blud, released on an imprint from the band Chvrches. Now she has a full-length on the way, due via Rough Trade later this year. “Sea Creatures” — the new LP preview — is a cut that arrived in solo-acoustic form last year, but now it’s even more affecting as a midtempo swoon, a beautiful piece of gloaming akin to some of her neighbors to the north. Hear it above.

    22 Jan 2015 | 5:30 pm
    Edmonton’s Jessica Jalbert released one of my favorite under-the-radar LPs of 2011, Brother Loyola, and now she’s back with a new record. Jalbert goes by Faith Healer these days, teaming up once again with René Wilson for a 12-track set titled Cosmic Troubles, due via Mint Records in March. There’s a colorful collage of nods to the ’60s infused here (sunny harmonies, handclaps, indelible melody, et al.), but — as with her previous work — something completely present persists, too. Among Jalbert’s many talents, the interwoven electric guitar…
  • José González: ‘Every Age’, ‘Leaf Off/The Cave’

    admin
    21 Jan 2015 | 10:20 pm
    José González returns with Vestiges And Claws, his first record in years under his own name, after recent material from Junip and 2010’s still-haunting Red Dead Redemption cut “Far Away.” The latest taste, “Leaf Off / The Cave” recalls Junip, with its undulating rhythm and dog-eared melodies, but “Every Age” is something a bit different from González. It’s an optimistic tune set over that ever-moving “Be My Baby” intro beat, with a message for the zeitgeist I’m hearing a lot lately: “Take your time, build a…

No two projects are ever alike.  It may not be because we haven’t created something similar, but the client…

  • 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.

    A few weeks back, I grabbed “24” off a recent double single by Moonbabies for airplay on my radio show. Now the duo has announced their first new LP, to be called Wizards On The Beach, in seven years. The new LP is plush with melodic instrumentation and harmonic vocals. Blending classic pop and dance sensibilities, Moonbabies explore a dreamy pop sound on par with fellow Swedish artists like Fredrik and Icelandic musicians like Sunbear and Sin Fang. Songs siding on more subtlety, like “Raindrops” hint of danish artists like Mew and Oh No Ono while holding onto a…

    Cock & Swan return with a new album in 2015 called What Was Life? Johnny Goss and Ola Hungerford’s latest effort continues what the duo, now married, did with 2013’s Secret Angels. Ola’s vocals continue to grow in strength and confidence, despite their minimalist and aural nature on “PERG”, the first song to surface from the new 3-song EP. And Johnny’s electronic loops are darker and more subtle than ever. They debuted “PERG” on Impose earlier this week. I’ve been following Cock & Swan since 2006 — that’s the better…

    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%.

When asked about the primary way in which they accessed music not available for streaming, US teen internet users said they found something else to listen to and waited for the original music to be available for streaming, compared with an average of 51% among all respondents. When they did go beyond streaming services like Spotify or Pandora, teens weren’t interested in paying—despite Piper Jaffray’s finding that MP3s, often paid for, grabbed the biggest portion of…

    How long’s a piece of string?! There are so many options that I’m not going to specify any particular type or model.photo by svennevennHowever, here are some of the things you need to consider.what to consider when choosing a recording deviceis it small and convenient and easy to use? – you won’t want to carry around a big, heavy object and have to look in the manual every time in order to use it. If it needs an external microphone that’s one more hassle and one more thing to forget to bring.   can it use batteries or does it have to run off the mains? – batteries make the…

  • The singers who didn’t like warm ups (and what became of them)

    26 Jan 2015 | 2:00 am
    Once upon a time there were two singers: Olga and Little Erik. They  did not like choir warm ups. Olga always came late so she could avoid them. Little Erik did them in a half-hearted way with a scowl on his face.What became of these two reckless singers? Read on to find out.Olga had never liked warm ups. She didn’t see the point. Why couldn’t they just get on with the singing?She hated the choir warm up so much that every week she came late so she could miss it.Little Erik wasn’t quite as naughty. He came on time every week like he was supposed to and joined in with the warm ups.

  • Introducing: Them Are Us Too

    Tim
    25 Feb 2015 | 6:06 am
    It’s almost impossible to discuss Californian duo Them Are Us Too without making comparisons to shoegaze icons, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and, most obviously, Cocteau Twins. From the echoic drum machine to the droning reverb, all bound together by the vocal glossolalia – the similarities are manifold. Kennedy Ashlyn’s superb soprano deserves real attention and, bearing an uncanny resemblance to Elizabeth Fraser, threatens to steal the show entirely. But the beauty of Them Are Us Too is the way in which they function as a composite structure. Cash Askew’s ethereal…
  • Akiine – Destiny (Premier)

    Tim
    24 Feb 2015 | 1:33 am
    We fell in love with Akiine (born Akiine Kivelä Ngarambe) when she released Sunglassey more than a year ago, and now we’re rather privileged to premier the similarly excellent Destiny. Destiny is a soft and sultry 808-leaning track, with a muted, mellow vibe that we have come to love from the Swedish songstress. The deep bounce should see this flooding the dancefloors with the lights down low very soon. To celebrate the new release, she’s paying the Old Blue Last on 3 March with labelmate Bewilderbeast, which sounds like quite the night. Akiine has signed to the wonderful…
  • La Priest – Oino

    We’ve got something little different for you all today from La Priest, a name we haven’t seen since he did a 7″ on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy label back in 2007, which is forever ago. La Priest is Sam Dust, formerly of Late of the Pier, a man that has always had a sound all to himself, and that is never more true than on Oino. It’s a truly imaginative cosmic mix of electro, funk, and prog rock that seems to suit someone who’s spent years in Greenland, studying the effects of the Ivittuut region’s electro-magnetic phenomena on recorded sound. Oino will be…

    We were big fans of Shawondasee‘s Gems of Pure Light when we first heard it last year, and now the Parisian duo have followed that up with the release their debut EP of the same name. My favourite on the EP is Someone Good, which in contrast to the disco bassline on their previous single, is slow and beautifully layered electronica that lets you drift away while sending shivers down your spine. And here’s the whole EP for your streaming pleasure: Shawondasee – Someone Good was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

With Klara on guitar and Johanna on the keyboard, they vocally open with their beloved single “The Lion’s Roar”. The duo’s outfits pay tribute to their folk inspired album “Stay Gold” from the covenesque inspired attire on Johanna to Klara’s gold encased loafers. With Johanna and Klara’s harmonies on point, the two are set against a golden glitter imbued mountain backdrop further illuminated…

  • Preview: Vienna Philharmonic Brings Brahms Back to Carnegie Hall

    Peter Matthews
    27 Feb 2015 | 10:15 am
    After last year's month-long Vienna: City of Dreams festival, I seriously considered sitting out this weekend's appearance by the Vienna Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall, where they've visited almost every year since the 1950's. I mean, isn't there such a thing as too much of a good thing, especially when this year's program consists of Brahms' four symphonies and the German Requiem? (yawn.) No. Because it's Vienna. Because it's Vienna playing Brahms. Because these concerts are led by the extraordinary Daniele Gatti, soon to be the Chief Conductor…

    Peter Matthews
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:32 pm
    Thinking back, I've seen some pretty massive concerts at Carnegie Hall over the years. There was Seiji Ozawa conducting Berlioz' Reqiuem with the BSO barely a month after 9/11/2001. Or James Levine conducting that same orchestra three years later in Mahler's 8th Symphony, requiring a stage extension and the removal of the first six rows of seats. Or last season's operatic performances by the St. Louis Symphony and the Vienna Staatsoper. But, I hadn't heard anything at Carnegie quite so ambitious as last Saturday's production by Trinity Wall Street, featuring…

    You might want to bring earplugs for this one.  On Saturday night, Trinity Choir director Julian Wachner brings some 300 musicians uptown with him to Carnegie Hall for what is being billed as "The Big Concert", pairing Alberto Ginastera's modern-day Passion setting Turbae ad passionem gregorianam with Charles Ives' monumental Symphony No. 4. Neither of these massive works get performed very much around these parts, mostly due to the massive forces required: two full choirs, two children's choirs, full orchestra and soloists. Fortunately, Wachner has all of these…

    18 Feb 2015 | 10:09 am
    It's almost unbelievable to think about, but speculation has been been slowly building that Simon Rattle, Chief Conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic, could actually become the next music director of the New York Philharmonic, replacing Alan Gilbert who has already announced his departure at the end of his contract in 2017. Aside from being one of the world's most engaging and dynamic conductors, Rattle's arrival in New York would be a major game changer, completing the balance shift of leading music directors to this side of the Atlantic and establishing New York as the…

However, she was hardly the first artist to do it, and Björk, who recently kept her phenomenal “Vulnicura” album from Spotify has perfectly laid out the reasoning, and explained what will likely be a new trend within the industry. Speaking to Fast Company, she said that “this streaming thing just does not feel right.” Justifying her stance better than any artist thus far, she…

I, for one, envy Janeway for apparently living in the kind of media bubble that allowed him to assume the movie was nothing more than a cookie cutter rom-com. Instead, the rest of us have had to endure the non-stop media onslaught of theater masturbators and excruciating headline puns. The aspiring preacher turned musician had no idea the…

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

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

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

  • A Ukulele Handbook For Beginners by Aaron and Nicole Keim - REVIEW

    Barry Maz
    19 Feb 2015 | 6:45 am
    I do like 'nice' things. You know, where somebody has gone that extra mile on presentation of something. That's what immediately came to mind when I opened the new ukulele guidebook by Aaron Keim - 'A Ukulele Handbook For Beginners'.Aaron is one of those performers quietly but widely admired in ukulele circles. Quietly seems apt as Aaron performs with his wife Nicole as an act called 'The Quiet American' playing 'old time American folk music for modern times'. I'm not sure if he took the name from the Graham Greene novel (but I certainly hope so!).... Anyway, get back on track Barry.So Aaron…

I first saw Tobias perform on stage at the Ukulele Festival Of Great Britain as part of Elof and Wamberg and was a total highlight of the festival.Sure, this is an advert for aNueNue - but give the guy credit where credit is due. He plays wonderfully. Oh, and speaking to him at Cheltenham, I realised he is also one of the nicest, most humble players I have met.And,…
  • Once Again on Ukulele Strumming Patterns.

    Barry Maz
    15 Feb 2015 | 4:52 am
    It has actually been a while since I ranted on this blog on this subject, but it seems that people still get me wrong on this subject. So, what do I really think about the whole 'strumming pattern' discussion?First off, if you are of the view that, 'that Baz from Got A Ukulele HATES strumming patterns', then, frankly you are dead wrong. And if I may say so, what a bizarre suggestion. You see, I use strumming patterns all the time - everyone does if they strum. Whatever you are playing you are strumming something of a pattern. It might be rigid and simple, it might be more freeform and…
  • Alic Soprano Ukulele - REVIEW

    Straight up with another review of a very affordable uke, and perhaps a viewpoint that may put the cat amongst the pigeons (again!). Say hello to the Alic Soprano ukulele.Remind you of anything? You know, when I first saw these I immediately thought 'Flea' - what with the moulded plastic back, wooden neck and plastic fingerboard and all. But somewhat surprisingly found that there are people who totally disagree with that.  Hmmm. Maybe, maybe not, but if you agree this is not the first uke I have seen to borrow ideas from the Flea concept. Some say its just the same concept as the…

    Flamenco has emerged to become a popular form of music being taught in many countries around the world after its recording birth in the late eighteenth century.  This style of Spanish folk music and dance  attributed its birth in the southern part of Spain to the mixing of Andalusian and Romani forms and quite a number of Flamenco artists happen to be of Romani origin.  After undergoing dramatic developments in the nineteenth century the music genre culminates universally of three sub-forms namely cante (singing) baile (dancing) and toque (guitar).

    27 Feb 2015 | 6:20 am
    Kelow remained quiet for most of 2014, piling up music in her fault and only lending a few feature verses. Today the female artist makes a trumphant return with a sharp new song titled, ‘Finna’. The new Beat Da Knocker produced record acts as the first taste of her upcoming Amethyst Stoner project, which is currently without a release date.

  • Interview – Wozniak: Shoegaze Blossoming with Scotland

    Matt
    25 Feb 2015 | 7:20 pm
    Following the release of the epic compilation ‘REVOLUTION – The Shoegaze Revival, which we announced a few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of connecting with mystic Scottish psychedelic trip-rock band Wozniak, who dabble in a sub-genre more popularly known as shoegaze these days for its heavy doses of reverb and other wistful effects. We’ve had our eyes on this snazzy innovative (did we already say mystic) underground Caledonian quartet ever since the end of last year, having featured in a whack of ‘best of’ year-end tallies, polls, and playlists for annual recap shows with their…

    17 Feb 2015 | 9:08 pm
    It has been far too long since we’ve been treated to some late night magic from Columbia Nights. The release of their new track My Groove proves that the group has been far from lazy over the past year or so. Their sound is as fresh as it ever was, with the D.C. trio pulling in SassyBlack to handle the vocal duties on this one. It’s amazing how she just glides over the ultra smooth production. Not familiar with SassyBlack? She’s part of THEESatisfaction, who conveniently has a new album titled EarthEE releasing next week on February 24th. Weird that I just streamed that…
  • Elsie – Say It Twice

    Matt
    12 Feb 2015 | 7:47 pm
    Well this is a real change of pace for Elsie. Usually her music is on some sort of electro, power pop level, but Say It Twice is something completely different. With her latest release, an anti-Valentine’s Day themed track, Elsie strips back the layers of synthesizers to expose an emotionally charged piano ballad. It’s a crushing breakup, but it sounds so sweet. Keep up with Elsie FACEBOOK | TWITTER | SOUNDCLOUD The post Elsie – Say It Twice appeared first on The Record Stache.
  • Max and the Moon – Modern Love

    Matt
    10 Feb 2015 | 8:48 pm
    Well, I have to be honest. When I saw the title of Max and the Moon’s latest release, I got really excited to hear what their take on David Bowie’s classic would sound like. And then I was really looking forward to pairing that with that one scene from Frances Ha where she’s running down the streets of New York along to “modern love gets me to the church on time.” Oh well… Now that I’ve come to accept that this is an original song, let me say that Max and the Moon’s Modern Love is a really great track! It’s been far too long since Max and…

    10 Feb 2015 | 8:16 pm
    Our friend Pollimer, who kindly curated the Art Is Heart mixtape for us last summer, premiered his new single Drive earlier today over at Kick Kick Snare. The song is a slow cruise through heavy textures and deep synth patterns. Much like driving can be itself, the track is repetitive with it’s lyrics but there’s something peaceful and comforting about how the few lyrics there are, are arranged. It’s intriguing and thought provoking. Drive is a song that beckons to be played during the hours of twilight, where it’s not quite dusk anymore but it’s still not…

    The Ed Sullivan and SOFA Entertainment are deeply saddened by singer Lesley Gore’s passing.  Born Lesley Sue Goldstein on May 2nd 1946 in Brooklyn, NY, Lesley got her start at only 16 years old, after being discovered by producer Quincy Jones in 1963. Gore recorded her first hit “It’s My Party” soon after signing with Mercury Records, where Jones was an A&R man. The song immediately became a success and overnight Lesley Gore turned into a star.  “It’s My Party” raced to No. 1 on the charts, was nominated for a Grammy and sold more than 1 million copies.

    The Ed Sullivan Show was very saddened to learn of the passing of legendary singer Joe Cocker. From an early age, Joe was inspired by American rhythm and blues artists like Ray Charles and Chuck Berry. Joe Cocker appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show on April 27th 1969. That night, backed by his “Grease Band,” he sang a full-throated rendition of Dave Mason’s “Feelin’ Alright.” Just a few months later, Joe Cocker would appear at the Woodstock Festival, singing his now infamous cover of The Beatles “With a Little Help From My Friends.” Cocker took the…

Belafonte is an American treasure, whose career made him among the first crossover African-American stars while simultaneously being one of show-business’ most politicized. On stage, screen, and recordings, Belafonte was affable and very appealing, bringing the Caribbean musical style of Calypso into the mainstream, most notably with his famous interpretation of “The Banana Boat Song.”…

    Forty years ago today, Ed Sullivan, who hosted the show that bore his name for over two decades, passed away from esophageal cancer. Ed Sullivan, born a New Yorker in 1901, was for many years part of an elite circle of Broadway columnists who was read by insiders and outsiders alike. In this capacity he made connections with some of the top names in show business. Having already broadcasted on radio, this put Sullivan in a good position to move into the new medium of television. He developed his program, initially called Toast of the Town, with his producer Marlo Lewis and was originally…

    Becky GJust a few weeks ago I was having lunch with a friend when we both met another mutual friend and her 9-year old daughter. The friend whom I was eating with spoke with the little girl about school and games of today. Their conversation got around to the music of today when the girl asked my friend if he enjoyed a particular modern artist. He responded by saying “all of them sound the same today”. He continued by stating that he “could easily interchange them and would not know the difference”. The little girl said nothing more, except goodbye and left with her mom. As for me, I…

This year has offered some controversial nominations and therefore, will bring about some controversial winners. Throughout the years I have had conversations with musicians and music lovers about the merits of Grammy award nominations and wins. Most feel that the awards have become too commercial, and winners are based less on musical talent and more on record sales and popularity. I enjoy such discussions because there are various ways of interpreting musical art. Therefore, the opinions…

  • Foreigner "Double Vision" Isolated Vocals

    27 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    The band Foreigner is still around and going stronger than ever, but much of their current touring is based on past hits like "Double Vision," the song that we look at today. Here are the isolated vocals from that big hit, which reached #2 on the Billboard charts in 1978. Here's are some things to listen to (it starts around 0:20):1. Take a listen to the long delayed reverb on the verse vocals. This is muted in the choruses so the vocal feels more intimate.2. The chorus features a doubled lead vocal up the center, while the harmonies are panned to the outside.3. You can clearly hear a punch…

    Every day someone asks me to listen to a mix and give my opinion. I wish I had time to do it more than I do, but unfortunately I can't always get around to it. That said, there are a number of mistakes that keep cropping up with the mixes I do hear. Here are the top 5 mixing mistakes that I come across.1. The vocal or lead instrument gets lost. Words get lost or the vocal seems buried during certain sections of the song. This is what automation is for. Go back and ride that sucker so every word can be heard.2. There's a big frequency build up from adding EQ at the same frequencies to a…

It’s sometimes difficult to record the audience in a way that captures its true sound.

From this realization, her blog, A Year of Reading the World, was born. You can read about Ann’s journey in her new book, Reading the World: Confessions of a Literary Explorer, available now in the UK. (The US version, The World Between Two Covers, will be released on May 4.) I chatted with Ann about the blog-to-book journey and her experience of reading and blogging about…

    Ho. Ly. Wow. Clare Maguire has some pipes on her. In her take on Carole King's classic "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" for a collaboration with Burberry, she absolutely and completely blows it out of the water. I've listened to it three times in a row, and each time is just as stunning. Although, I must say, I do have quite the soft spot for Carole's version too, especially when she sings it with my forever favorite James Taylor.

  • Noel Gallagher claims there have been no Oasis reunion offers

    27 Feb 2015 | 8:14 am

The 47-year-old rocker revealed although he is frequently questioned on whether he has plans to reform the 'Wonderwall' band with his younger brother Liam Gallagher, he has never been approached by anyone with a genuine offer for the group to reunite.

  • PR Skills: How to Write a Musician Biography

    Katie Reilly
    5 Jan 2015 | 9:00 am
    One of the key things you need to promote a musician is a biography. So, it's an important skill whether you intend to be in a band or work with one behind the scenes. A one page biography fills the role a cover letter might in a more traditional career and quickly provides context and information about a musician's sound, career, influences, and accomplishments. Talent buyers, radio station music directors, and everyone in between will use it to quickly understand who the artist is, so it needs to convey a clear, concise, and impressive message.CC by 2.0 peteoshea on FlickrSo how do you…

    9 Feb 2015 | 8:28 pm
    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…

  • 5 Best Equalizer Settings Cheat Sheets for Recording, Mixing, and Mastering Audio

    Steven Fies
    13 Jan 2015 | 10:30 pm
    As audio engineers, we all know how frustrating it can be to listen to a recorded instrument and know something isn't quite right with the EQ.  This gets progressively more annoying if we cannot quickly identify exactly what's going wrong and fix it!  To make matters more complicated, we have it ingrained in our souls that we should only apply EQ in the "context of the mix," with everything else playing at full volume.  While this is generally true, sonic information from the rest of the mix can make it tricky for us to hone in on what's happening with a particular instrument's…

    The Shadowking
    24 Feb 2015 | 3:50 pm
    Hailing from the south shores of Hanover, Massachusetts, 25 year old Derek Notarangelo works full time at a contact lense warehouse and full time as D.Nota, a hip-hop artist. After going to school to pursue three different professions, D.Nota came to the conclusion that his heart and his passion was in music. Having two full time jobs is never an easy endeavor, and D.Nota has been written up on a few occasions for “texting on his phone”, when really he is just always writing down lyrics. He had taught himself how to write music in his head, and this can cause some tension on his time…

When we hailed them as the 'new school' indie, a form of independent guitar-based music capable of surfing the void of commercial and non-commercial.

He will be leaving the BBC Radio 1 after 12 years of nurturing his radio show to be a loud enthusiastic romp through new music discovery. His candid interviews of some of the biggest names in music are top-shelf also. Neither Apple nor Lowe have said what his position will be. The speculation that Apple is seeking big talent in the music-influencer category is an obvious one. As we’re waiting to see what Beats Music becomes, adding Lowe to their arsenal of curators is nothing short of a victory. Hiring Lowe may be an indication…

  • Apple Patent Issued For Sharing Media

    29 Jan 2015 | 9:42 pm
    Apple was awarded a patent for sharing music and videos that, in the most basic sense, allows a purchaser to share their digital file while enabling Apple the ability to monetize and possibly track the shared file. Apple patents technology inventions often, but that does not guarantee it will show up in a product any time soon. This particular patent may lend itself to marrying an iTunes download with legitimately sharing it with someone else. But it also describes a two-tier pricing structure. The first tier for a download while the second tier for use without downloading (which may also…

Blur’s last album, Think Tank, was released in 2003, but they’ve spent much of the last few years teasing a follow-up, with Damon Albarn saying as far back as 2012 that “there will definitely be another Blur album.” Initial recording started in Hong Kong in 2013, although the tracks were temporarily shelved till November of last year. The album was produced by Stephen Street (who also produced Modern Life Is Rubbish, Parklife, The Great Escape, and Blur). Here’s a video for first single, “Go…

    Blade Runner 2 confirmed: Harrison Ford returns Pleaseeee dont mess this up! Ridley Scott won’t be directing Harrison Ford – but we know who will be. Harrison Ford is also 100% confirmed to return. Much of the news this week has been dominated by the new Alien film that Neill Blomkamp is set to direct. But, in one of those coincidental turns, the news week is ending with a sequel to another Ridley Scott sci-fi classic. Blade Runner 2 is definitely happening. It’s been known for some time that a sequel to Blade Runner was in development, but it’s now been 100%…

    It has been a long three years since London based Brighton punks Sauna Youth dropped their idiosyncratic debut album Dreamlands via Faux Discx/Gringo Records in 2012. At long last, they have streamed the first cut from their upcoming LP Distractions, titled “Transmitters”. This time around they will be releasing through Upset The Rhythm, a London based label who also curate some epic gigs in and around the town. Let me dig deep into my bag of cliches to describe what the track is like. Remiscient of late 70s/early 80s post punk the track is all tension, jagged edges, and near…

    Ryan Hickey
    27 Feb 2015 | 2:06 am
    So it’s been a while since I visited industrial shoegazers A Place to Bury Strangers. Their self-titled 2007 debut earned them the reputation of being the “loudest band in Brooklyn”, and that album regularly savaged my welcoming eardrums during that year. I enjoyed their follow up Exploding Head, albeit somewhat less than their first effort. I admit to losing track of them subsequently, content only to have them occasionally materialize unexpectedly on a randomized playlist and relish the nostalgia. Thus, it was with sentimental dismay that I found their latest release…

    It’s tough to pigeonhole Nubiyan Twist. At times the 12 piece group are jazz, at times hip hop, at times soul, at times dub, and. most of the time, all of these things at once. The retro raps of Nubiya Brandon cut through this cohesive amalgam, until she unleashes her strong, soulful, forceful song, and you are forced to stop and listen intently. The result is always confident, always cool, and always hard to pin down. And that’s the way I like it. After all, pigeonholes are for pigeons. On the cusp of the release of their eponymous debut album, out 30th March via Wormfood…

The track is the first taster from their forthcoming debut album Stand Still and Rot which will be unleashed in May.

So when he speaks on the culture we must listen. Of course Hip Hop could never be dead but it is dying slowly. We must save the culture and community before it is too late and out of our hands. The real voices of the community must continue to speak out because the faces of Hip Hop in the media are changing. Only us can save us. The post Quote of the Day – @Nas states Hip Hop is Dead.

If you're looking for a new song to put your chaotic surroundings to a halt for seven minutes, boost some creativity, or something that will help your mind focus on studious activities, definitely keep this track on repeat for a couple rounds.
