  • Swedish Scientists Are Competing To See Who Can Hide The Most Dylan Lyrics In Research Papers

    29 Sep 2014 | 3:26 pm
    The next time you’re looking for something fun to do and you inevitably turn to picking up a scientific article, you may find some familiar lyrics. According to The Local, five Swedish scientists got so bored writing about science that they placed a bet with each other to see who could squeeze in the most references to Bob Dylan lyrics in their papers before they retire. The game began 17 years ago with two professors who wrote a paper about intestinal gas (isn’t science fun?) and called it “Nitric Oxide and inflammation: The answer is blowing in the wind,” which is of…

    For her 5th studio album, Nika relocated to Vashon Island in the Puget Sound to fully immerse herself in the environment from which the music was inspired. The taiga is the world’s largest terrestrial biome; a wild boreal forest covering large portions of Russia, referred to as the Northwoods where it connects in North America, including all of Canada and large portions of Eurasia. Nika grew up on several acres of land in the northwoods of Wisconsin. She has always felt its pull. Her Russian ancestors extend the taiga’s bloodline throughout several generations.

  • Olly Murs is back with new album

    30 Sep 2014 | 2:42 am
    Olly Murs, one of pop music’s biggest and most enduring stars, releases his eagerly anticipated 4th album ‘Never Been Better’ November 24th on Epic Records. Driven by the funk guitar swagger of first single ‘Wrapped Up’ (featuring Travie McCoy), this is the sound of an artist at the very top of his game. With three multi-platinum albums, four number 1 singles and countless sold out arena tours under his belt, Olly Murs steps back in the ring and comes out swinging on his most impressive album yet. Highlights are many and include the classic soul of ‘Let Me In’ written by Olly…

    Now here's an epic, bizarre new video to 'As If Transformed', the debut single from The Department. A feast of sexy people and outlandish costumes, the video is a parody of glitzy cosmetics commercials and is also loosely based on the children's paper game 'Heads, Bodies & Tails', where you end up with crazy combinations of outfits and body parts. The video was produced by OneRedEye agency, shot at OneRedEye studios in London and directed by Ed Robinson. The Department is a powerful new synthwave band, established in 2013 with one foot in London and the other in Sweden. Inspired by 80's…

Less psychedelic than previous offerings, 'Regatta' wouldn't sound out of place at a noughties indie disco, bringing to mind the likes of the Rifles and the Kooks. Even if that's not to your taste, the video looks pretty fun, with a bizarre ending too.

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:17 pm
    Most of you lovely folks know me mostly as the guy who watches movies a lot.  That is true.  What you may not know is that I am also an avid reader.  I’ve read many, many books, and I enjoy a variety of different genres.  Though, I’ve always been partial to noir-ish detective yarns.  I also love reading satires.  So I was delighted when I first read Thomas Pynchon’s classic and unique send-up of hard-boiled detective thrillers, Inherent Vice.  It’s terrific.  It’s hard to describe, but to use a movie analogy, imagine a cross between The Big…

    These days, Marvel has the clout to do whatever they want.  Every single film the upstart studio has put out over the years has become an instant cash cow.  This year, they’re touting their release of Guardians Of The Galaxy – a film based on one of their more obscure titles – as it has recently become the highest-grossing movie of the year, surpassing their earlier offering, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  It also helps that both films received overwhelmingly positive reviews, and the former has made Chris Pratt a bona fide star.  This past weekend, he even lampooned…

Earlier this year, they released the ultimate bop in the form of “Dec 15th,” a beachy and carefree track with a cynical undertone, and they have some new visuals to go along with it. Directed by fellow UK musician Joey Fourr, the video sees the band chowing down on some hamburgers and getting their grub on (get it!?).

    SiriusXM and skateboarding legend Tony Hawk will celebrate 10 years of his exclusive SiriusXM radio show with a special edition of “Tony Hawk’s Demolition Radio” broadcast live on the Faction channel.  Not only is this a celebration of a show, but it is also recognition that a new type of “DJ” and format can thrive if given the opportunity.  Faction is a mix of music and action sports such as skateboarding and snow-boarding.  For lack of a better description, I would characterize it as the music enjoyed by the people that gravitate to the X-Games.  Channels…
  • Court Decision Stings SiriusXM

    24 Sep 2014 | 8:57 am
    A Federal judge has ruled in favor of the Turtles in a lawsuit about royalties that may mean that the Turtles and Sirius XM are not “Happy Together”.  In addition, the ruling may pave the way for royalty payments to many other artists who’s songs predate 1972.  The copyright laws in the United States deal with royalties post 1972 and leave the issue of pre-1972 recordings up to each state.  The Turtles filed their case in California. The decision by the judge will also be ammunition in a Sound Exchange suit against SiriusXM for its exclusion of pre-1972 air plays from…

    15 Sep 2014 | 9:38 am
    Over the years I have, on many occasions, been very critical of SiriusXM’s customer service.  There were even points in time where I would have characterized it as deplorable. In my opinion, a successful company is one that views its customers as an asset, handles them with care, and bends over backwards to ensure that the consumer experience is as good as it can be.  SiriusXM has not always fared well in these departments.  That being said, my two most recent interactions with SiriusXM’s customer service were a very pleasant surprise.

The news being announced today was timed very well.  the company had dipped below $3.60 and while I would not have anticipated to dip much further, an announcement such as this should be enough to get the interest of the street and get investors…

    Anyone going into Neighbors expecting just another Seth Rogen gross-out raunchfest will be surprised; I know I was when I watched it. True, there are plenty of outrageous, ‘R’ rated drug and nudity driven moments throughout the film, but there is also depth to the comedy and a strong theme that runs through the lives of all the characters. It may not seem like it on the surface, but Neighbors offers a lot to think about, once you get past the lactating breasts and dildos. Rogen and the delightful Rose Byrne (who is becoming a secret weapon in every movie she appears in) play young married…

    Now that anything can become an instrument, musicianship can become the practice of finding the spirit in the unexpected. It’s what Matt Moldover championed in the notion of controllerism, what years of DIYers have made evident. It’s not just a matter of finding a novelty or two. It’s really taking those novelties and making them a creative force. Adriano Clemente, the Italian-born, Brooklyn-based artist (aka Capcom), is a shining light of just that sort of imagination. Regular CDM readers will see some familiar techniques. There’s a laser harp, a circuit-bent toy, mic…

    Synthesist Chris Stack has had his hands on a lot of gear – and a lot of it with the Moog Music moniker on it. But every chance he gets, he’s bugging me about how in love he is with the Dave Smith Pro 2, the richly-appointed, nicely-overpowered monosynth on steroids as we described it earlier this summer. And he’s having a lot of fun, transforming it into a hybrid digital/audio “hub” – a sound source, but also a central brain for exceptional soundscapes. And in Chris’ hands, I’m certainly convinced, as this beast sequences beautiful frontiers of…

Not so for this Madrid-based artist, who has transformed his body and all the objects around him into an instrument. The results are mad and magical – and CDM’s Matt Earp talked to the artist to find out just how he put this all together, and what it has to do with music like flamenco.

    I’ve always been of the opinion that listening to an audiobook is like eating a steak dinner that’s been put through a blender: it’ll keep you from starving, but the experience is nothing like the pleasure derived from sinking your teeth into a medium rare ribeye straight off the grill, or curling up with a favorite paperback on a rainy afternoon. The new audio version of Tom T. Hall’s 1979 memoir, The Storyteller’s Nashville, proves that theory wrong in all the best ways. Narrated by “self-described professional Tom T. Hall fan” and country music journalist Peter Cooper, with…

A stellar funk fusion explosion featuring Fareed Haque on guitar, Kai Eckhardt on bass, Eric Levy on keys and Alan Hertz on drums, the band was at turns incredibly tight or ready for a wide open jam; driving the groove or creating a moment of mesmerizing delicacy. You never knew what you’d get at a show, and even if a song was repeated, it was as different as could be. (I remember catching four shows in a row in the spring of '04, each featuring an entirely unique take on their groove number “Be Dope,” ranging from six minutes…

    Ural Thomas is a soul singer from Portland who, despite having allegedly rubbed elbows with the likes of Otis Redding, The Rolling Stones and James Brown, never quite made it to the show. No one can argue with the man’s talent. Look no further than his 1967 tune “Pain is the Name of Your Game,” […]

  • UK duo Coves released debut LP, touring w/ The Raveonettes including both MHOW shows (dates, streams)

    29 Sep 2014 | 12:47 pm
    UK duo Coves are singer Rebekah Wood and multi-instrumentalist John Rigard, who make a smoky brand of guitar pop, full of tremolo'd minor chords and reverbed atmosphere. The band's new album, Soft Friday, was released via Nettwerk earlier this month and you can stream a few songs and videos below, and listen to the whole thing over at Rdio. Coves are currently on tour with The Raveonettes which makes a good match (if maybe a little too perfect) so if you're going to see them, its worth showing up early. The Raveonettes and Coves play NYC tonight (9/29) and Tuesday (9/30) at Music Hall of…

    Stop what you’re doing! The Inherent Vice trailer has finally arrived. Ahead of its premiere this weekend at the New York Film Festival, we have finally been graced with a taste of Paul Thomas Anderson’s highly-anticipated Thomas Pynchon adaptation. Starring Joaquin Phoenix alongside Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Benicio del Toro, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Josh Brolin and more the film looks, as suspected, looks to take a step back from the austere world of The Master and venture back into his bizarre and wonderful mix of comedy and drama from an epically swirling cast of characters,…
  • Celebrating the Desire of Michelangelo Antonioni On His Birthday

    29 Sep 2014 | 1:18 pm
    As one of the most influential and impressive filmmakers of the last century, the cinema of Michelangelo Antonioni spanned over fifty years. With an adept understanding of the human psyche and a fascinating eye for composition, the Italian director’s dynamic and quietly expressive films were filled with alienation and ennui, exposing the silence that rests between even the closest relationships. From his early films such as Story of a Love Affair and his iconic trilogy L’Avventura, L’Eclisse, and La Notte to the mysteries of Blow-Up and the counterculture conflicts of Zabriskie Point,…

And what better place to be reminded of this glorious epicurean delectation than at the très français Sofitel Los Angeles? And so it is that the ever glamorous hotel today kicks off SOFITEL WINE DAYS: A MONTH OF FRENCH WINES, which will carry on until the eve of All Hallows’ Eve (otherwise known as October 30).

    The European Union has accused various companies, including Apple, Fiat, and Starbucks, of cutting illegal tax deals with various governments. Specifically, the E.U. believes Apple and the Irish government entered into illegal agreements that let Apple avoid massive amounts of taxes. Both Apple and the Irish government say they did nothing illegal. A report describing the offences is expected at the beginning of this week. Bad news for Apple, who could eventually be required to pay up to 10 years in back taxes. The outcome of this investigation could have a large impact on the way large…

Today Mister Lies’ Nick Zanca shared the album’s second single, High, a creaky, gospel-indebted track that utilizes sudden range shifts to work against the slight piano and minimalist house beats.

    Next month, Stars will follow-up 2012’s The North with No One Is Lost on ATO. We’ve already heard the jittery club banger From The Night and the tender, soft-focus track Turn It Up and today the band dropped the album’s title track. No One Is Lost goes back in the other direction, favoring big, bold synths over sepia vintage passivity. It’s worth noting that despite the fact that the track sounds happy, its lyrics are, “Put your hands up cause everybody dies.” So there’s that. Listen below.

Their incredible live show is one of those things you have to see with your own eyes to fully appreciate—their infinite hair waving all over the stage in time with their stage-stalking moves and the intensely jittery, shrieky rock sound. The big venue was packed as hell for Kasabian, but the crowd won’t soon forget Bo Ningen. You will have a couple chances to catch them during CMJ Music Marathon in…

Talib Kweli weighed in with an extreme take along the lines of Lauryn Hill's given us so much that we cannot criticize. But it's a simple situation.

    25 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    The ukulele, a small four-stringed instrument of Portuguese origin, was patented in Hawaii in 1917, deriving its name from the Hawaiian word for “leaping flea.” Immigrants from the island of Madeira first brought to Hawaii a pair of Portuguese instruments in the late 1870s from which the ukuleles eventually developed. Trace back to the origins of the ukulele, follow its evolution and path to present-day popularity, and explore interesting facts about this instrument with Oxford Reference. 1.

  • On the Town, flashpoint for racial distress

    Raquel Fernandes
    23 Sep 2014 | 1:30 am
    When the first production of On the Town in 1944 featured the Japanese American ballerina Sono Osato as its star, as part of a cast that also included whites and blacks, it aimed for a realistic depiction of the diversity among US citizens during World War II. It did so at a time when African Americans were expressing affinity with Nisei – that is, with second-generation children of Japanese nationals who had immigrated to other countries. The two communities shared the struggle of discrimination by the majority culture. In 1942, the Office of War Information conducted a survey in Harlem,…
  • On the Town and the long march for civil rights in performance

    11 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    As we celebrate the golden anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a significant aspect of the struggle for racial equality often gets ignored: racial activism in performance. Actors, singers, and dancers mobilized over the decades, pushing back against racial restrictions that shifted over time, and On the Town of 1944 marked an auspicious but little-recognized moment in that history. On the Town opened on Broadway in December of 1944 towards the end of World War II, and marked the debut of a dazzling group of creative artists: the composer Leonard Bernstein, the lyricists Betty Comden…

The piece appears in its television advertisements, its airport terminals, and even its pre-flight announcements. However, the history of United’s use of the piece is far from straight forward. This brand new safety video offers a compelling case in point: Like recent videos by Air New Zealand and Delta Airlines, United’s safety briefing is designed to keep our attention as it reiterates the standard safety announcements that we know all too…

    Last night I went to see Front 242 at Irving Plaza in Manhattan. The last time I saw them live was May 6, 1989 at the Palladium. Considering that they are one of my favorite bands of all time it’s strange to me that I have only seen them twice… 25 years apart. When I saw them two and a half decades years ago they were young, skinny, all in black and extremely aggressive. They used Emulator Samplers, analog delay pedals and electronic drums. At that point every single song that they had released I adored with a passion. After Tyranny for You their sound changed and techno took over…

Remember when you wrote your name in awkwardly formatted text on your profile and blackmailed friends into writing embarrassingly positive testimonials? Remember joining communities like ‘HeAVY Metal -A Real Tribute’ and getting into pointless Metallica vs. Megadeth comment wars? Brodha V doesn’t. Unlike you, the Bangalore-based rapper was using Orkut more as a tool than a timesink. When you were busy chatting up bots and trolling Linkin Park fans, he was participating in…

  • How EZ Riser Will Reinterpret the Blues at Lee 125

    25 Sep 2014 | 9:51 am
    You might have heard that the elder statesman of denim brands, Lee, is turning 125 next month, and there’s a party lined up to mark the occasion. At Lee 125, you’ll get to see scene staples like EZ Riser, Reggae Rajahs, Karsh Kale and Nucleya honor the jeans giant by reinterpreting five genres of music that coincide with the five distinct eras that marked the evolution of Lee. They’ll be doing so not at a club or a restaurant or any other gig venue you’re familiar with, but at a full-fledged stadium. The gig is a little more than two weeks away, and the artists are hard at work trying…
  • Trinergic Reveal New Drummer, Announce Plans for Debut Album

    25 Sep 2014 | 9:25 am
    Mumbai-based melodic death metal act Trinergic recently announced the addition of Jay Ram Karki to their lineup. Jay, who replaces Emmanuel Paul on drums, is widely considered to be one of the best drummers to emerge from South Asia in recent times. Hailing from Kathmandu, Nepal, Jay’s prodigious talent first came to light in 2012, when he was playing with the Nepalese-grindcore act Wakk Thuu. Since then, the man christened ‘Nepalm Death’ by Sick Drummer Magazine, has gone on to perform with bands such as Viral, Fall and Binaash, with the latter being at the forefront of a resurgent…

  • Black on Hulu: Bill Cosby in I SPY

    Rob Fields
    25 Sep 2014 | 6:45 am
      Something special happened in 1965.  This something special had nothing to do with The Beatles, or James Brown, the space race or politics but it still changed the future for the better in a very significant way.  That year, a well-known young comedian jumped from telling his observational and introspective jokes on stage and became a bonafide actor whose presence and vision would change the television landscape. When Bill Cosby first graced American televisions screens as Alexander Scott on I SPY as an American secret agent traveling undercover overseas and posing as a professional…

    This article originally appeared on on Thursday, August 21, 2014 In his book, Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness,author and MSNBC host Toure noted:“If there are 40 million black people, then there are 40 million ways to be black.” Of course, marketers can’t be expected to understand each individual in a group.  Nor should they only look at an undifferentiated mass.  It’s smarter to begin exploring movements and networks.  When it comes to diversity within the black consumer segment, Afropunk or black alternative culture, is worth a serious look. If numbers hold, 60,000…

    16 Sep 2014 | 7:59 am
    In an interview with ATV pal R. Todd Richards, Del Amitri frontman Justin Currie spoke about his latest solo disc, Lower Reaches, which was released earlier this year. He also indicated that there are plans to put out expanded reissues of the band's last two albums, Some Other Sucker's Parade and Can You Do Me Good? For those of you who already picked up the expanded reissues of Waking Hours, Change Everything and Twisted, you'll know that this is good news. Those reissues were packed with nearly all of the appropriate B-sides from the period...and even as somebody who had personally…

    It’s been a good year for Del Amitri fans. The Scottish alternative rock group played a series of highly anticipated reunion shows in support of expanded reissues of three of their finest albums from the ‘90s, Waking Hours, Change Everything and Twisted (with each album adding a second disc of bonus tracks). Prior to that, frontman Justin Currie had spent a month in Austin, Texas, working with producer Mike McCarthy on songs that would eventually land on the solo album Lower Reaches, which was released first in the U.K. late last year prior to receiving a U.S. release in the…

    It's hard to believe, but this year marks the 20th anniversary of the band Wilco. They've recently announced plans to celebrate the anniversary with a pair of releases, including the first-ever best of compilation from the group and also a collection of rarities that they say, "We're pretty sure you're gonna love." They're also on the road playing a few shows to celebrate the milestone and as if that wasn't enough, frontman and creative mastermind Jeff Tweedy will release his solo debut under the banner of Tweedy on September 23rd. Here's a sampling from the Tweedy album, a tune called…
  • Interview: Howard Jones On Retro Futura + Continuing To ‘Engage’ With His Audience

    Matt Wardlaw
    31 Aug 2014 | 1:22 pm
    For fans of ‘80s pop music, the current Retro Futura tour is a dream bill, featuring a lineup of Katrina (from Katrina and the Waves), China Crisis, Midge Ure of Ultravox fame, Howard Jones and Thompson Twins frontman Tom Bailey. I had the chance to see the tour when it came through Cleveland last week (at the Performance Arts Center at the Masonic Auditorium) and it’s probably the best genre package tour I’ve ever seen. It was a thrill to see Howard Jones touring with a level of production that you usually only get to see if you’re seeing one of his shows in the U.K. Beyond that,…

    For the past few years, Matthew Sweet has been celebrating his classic ‘90s release Girlfriend with a series of full album performances. The shows which initially came about to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album’s release proved that Girlfriend remains one of the more well-crafted releases from the decade. It holds up well, which as you probably know, is not something that always is the case when you’re listening back to albums past. It’s fun to look back, but now Sweet is beginning to take steps towards writing and recording his next album which is slated to be released in…

    The White Whale is up and running. It’s sold out and the waiting list has been closed. Some people are resorting to turning up on the night just in case there are audience member no-shows (I’m not suggesting this as a viable course of action, but I understand that needs must etc.). If you have a ticket and are yet to see the play, I heartily recommend waiting ’til you have before you check out these images: there are photos from behind the scenes taken by James Phillips here; and very spoilery pics from the dress rehearsal here.

Knowing that God is watching out for him on the sunny as well as the rainy days, he concludes, “I won’t complain even if I could.” Produced by PAJAM, “Alright OK” is the singer’s most engaging single in some time.

    I admire Andrew Curry so much, but I'm also envious. When he wants to do something - when he has an idea, a dream - he acts on it, jumps over every barrier that faces him, overcomes the impossible and in the end comes up with a finished product that is polished and admired by pop music fans worldwide. His first project, "Drink a Toast to Innocence: A Tribute to Lite Rock," was funded through Kickstarter and brought indie pop artists together to perform covers of those AM radio hits that helped shape my love of pop music - Andrew Gold's "Thank You for Being a Friend," Robbie Dupree's "Steal…

    My favorite time of year. Autumn. I've been waiting for the feeling I got in Fall 1988 to go away - some mixture of anticipation, loneliness and yearning for something I hadn't found yet. Nine months out of the year, I'm fine. But each late September, it creeps back into my psyche, and I'm returned to Berry College, a homesick, lonely student trying to find his place in the college and in this world. I write about this every year, starting with my original post introducing this mix. Fall has become a ghost haunting me, but it's a welcome ghost. These feelings - no matter how painful or sad…

Nashville was the closest city to Atlanta that was on his North American tour, and I've made the trek a few times to the Country Music Capital of the World to see a pop artist perform.

    Twenty-five years ago, Athens, Ga. was the king of the alt-rock/indie-rock/college rock scene. (Gen Y folks: It was the Seattle of the 80s.) With bands such as R.E.M., Pylon, and the B-52s gaining national attention, artists flocked to the city hoping to get noticed. I happened to be in college during that time, and I was like a kid in a candy store. Every Friday night you could find some up-and-coming band that was "the next R.E.M." It was a place of excitement and innovation. Michael Stipe sightings were frequent. It was a wonderful place to be. Now, R.E.M. have broken up, the B-52s are…

But that's exactly what occurred to the Buckeye Politicians after recording their album in 1975. It only took four decades to make good on the promise of their musical vision, but 'now they're back with the crunch of rock, the rhythms of soul music, and the punch of a horn section,' states their long-time manager, Herb Gart.

The couple say he was in charge of twelve tables and, although he stayed pleasant and apologetic throughout the night, it took twenty minutes to get them water and forty minutes for appetizers. Fortunately, the couple had met while waiting tables at a Bubba Gump restaurant, and knew that, sometimes, the night is just not conducive to great service.

But Omar Jose Gonzalez, the man who was arrested earlier this month for charging into the residence, made it much further than Secret Service officials initially reported, according to the Washington Post. Early reports said the intruder was stopped at the front door, but it seems a knife-wielding Gonzalez managed to jump the White House fence, sprint across the lawn, past a Secret Service guard, into the residence and into the White House's East Room before finally being tackled by an agent.

    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…

Explaining her inspiration for the song Nika says, “I wrote Go (Blank Sea) about the facelessness of city life. How is it you can walk down the busiest street of a metropolis, fighting through a current of busy moving bodies, yet feel completely isolated? All of the singularity rubs together to create a universal dull hum that can cancel us all out. It’s in the densest populations that I sometimes feel the most alone, and in…

    After I published my first post on traveling1, I got some feedback, thoughts, and questions from a couple of people who read it. I decided it was only fair to them and myself if I properly conveyed the conversations we had as a result, while also giving me more of an elaborate way to respond to these comments. Travel allows you to see exploitation happening, but this requires also a host of other experiences, e.g., education, lived experience of oppression, some kind of dialogue about it or coming-to-consciousness of wider structural forces. Most people don’t have access to that, even…

    Diversity of the cultural ecology is a desirable state of affairs, especially in opposition to the accelerating trend toward the uniform digitalization of all sensory experience, wherein an electronic “reader” stands between experience and observation, and all manifestation is encoded identically. Wabi-Sabi, Leanord Koren It is shocking how homogenous pop-design has become on our screen. There is certainly interesting stuff happening, but those fall more within the sphere of art than of design, and it makes me wonder.

  • Watch: Rashida Jones-Directed Mayer Hawthorne Video for “Crime”

    29 Sep 2014 | 1:55 pm
    Pitchfork reports that Mayer Hawthorne’s 2013 song “Crime” (feat. Kendrick Lamar) now has a video, directed by Parks and Recreation actress Rashida Jones. The video features Hawthorne attempting to get to an “exclusive party of the year,” where invitees are required to wear all-white shoes and clothing, with some difficulty. Stated Jones, The video is a parody of ridiculously exclusive parties which are made nearly impossible to get to but tout themselves as ‘the party of the year.’ I liked the idea of the video starting as a sexy getting-ready video and…

    Well, here’s a treat. Tears for Fears, the oft-covered geniuses behind 80’s new wave anthems like “Shout,” “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” and, of course, the original “Mad World” have covered Radiohead’s most anthemic – and one of their oldest – songs. Soon after Pablo Honey, Radiohead began sinking into what’d become their trademark moaning electro-rock sound. But “Creep” – the song that skyrocketed them to the level of fame where they could comfortably start moaning – remains an excellent relic of the…
  • Lorde Releases “Yellow Flicker Beat” from the ‘Mockingjay’ Soundtrack

    29 Sep 2014 | 8:46 am
    Lorde has finally released “Yellow Flicker Beat,” from the Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part 1 soundtrack (the rest of which she curated). The track’s beginning is eerily quiet, but this is broken by an abrupt action-pop chant. The song perfectly captures the fury, strength, and fragility that is Katniss, particularly the Katniss of Mockingjay. This is a pop song for people with revenge to seek and nothing to lose. This sentiment is pretty straightforward: “But I’ve got my fingers laced together/and I made a little prison/and I’m locking up…

The result is brilliant – true enough to the original to do Adele justice, but with the addition of some Franklin grit and attitude. The end of the song crescendoes with “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” a curious but seamless transition that reinvents a song that was great enough to have never needed…

Kendrick Lamar — “i” Rap’s crown prince doesn’t need to call out Compton again to channel California. Rap’s crown prince doesn’t need to claim to be the greatest MC alive to say he loves himself. Other rappers before Kendrick, specifically the Beastie Boys, have sampled The Isley Brothers’s “That Lady,” a familiar funk hit that currently soundtracks Swiffer commercials.

    The best songs are the ones that unravel themselves with each repeated listen. “Marigolden,” the latest single from Field Report’s upcoming, fantastic sophomore effort, is one of those songs. Frontman Chris Porterfield told the A.V. Club the track’s title refers “to a state of sharing characteristics of a marigold, which is a brutish flower found in beds everywhere that smells bad and dies off every year. If you want it back, you have to dig it up now and plant it again later. And it’s a play on being ’golden,’ which is not that at all.” Like the majority of Porterfield’s…

    Breakups aren’t like they are in the movies. There are very rarely slammed doors or screaming matches in fancy restaurants. More often, they’re a series of awkward and barely-spoken messages of shifting uncertainty until at least one person’s heart breaks. SALES, a Florida-based duo that just put out its debut EP on Monday, tells that story in quite possibly the most perfect way ever. In “getting it on,” Lauren Morgan’s vocals are beautiful and charming; yearning, sad and sweet all at the same time. However, the fretwork is really the standout champ—their hypnotizing guitar…

  • Saxophone Altissimo Discussion

    11 Aug 2014 | 6:21 am
    A few of my students have thought they were were playing altissimo on saxophone, when that wasn’t really the case. Notes that use the palm keys are fairly high and may be difficult to play, especially for beginning sax players, but that doesn’t make them ‘altissimo’. At some point after you have been playing saxophone for a little while, you may hear this word, ‘altissimo’. Maybe it’s thrown into a conversation you hear, something like, “Man, then the sax player hit that altissimo C and it wailed”. Pretty soon, you start to get the idea…

It quickly gets very twisted, which isn’t very surprising given lyrics such as: “Baby, I’m preying on you tonight/ Hunt you down eat you alive/ Just like animals … Maybe you think that you can hide/ I can smell your scent from miles/ Just like animals.” Not a video we’ll put…

    It felt like a mid-summer evening in San Francisco.  That is, it was cold and misty.  The unseasonable chill did little to dampen the crowd as it’s hometown hero, Pokey LaFarge, his band and a bunch of other like-minded musicians swung through town on the “Central Time Tour”.  The lineup up is curated perfectly to sync with LaFarge’s now well-known sound, style and attitude.  Don Flemons, formerly of the Carolina Chocolate Drops played MC for the day and there is not a more perfect choice for the job.

From oil drums and hubcaps to amplifier feedback and screams, the collective utilizes everything in their power to create a sonic landscape that toes carefully the line between harmony and chaos. In an age where the digital reigns supreme and recordings run rampant over Bandcamp and SoundCloud, the scant releases by Beauty Pageant serve to emphasize the importance of live performance, a give and take between artist and audience that would be lost in a room full of microphones. The group’s…

      St. Louis duo GOLDEN CURLS gets blissfully lost in the haze The whispery vocals and gentle approach of St. Louis natives Golden Curls should never be mistaken as fragile or delicate work. A virtual orchestra of guitar and synth tones weaves patterns in and out of the breaths between heavy-driving beats in a complex arrangement that the two members of the band have taken to calling “woozy pop.” Sarah Downen and Noah Blackwell began Golden Curls as a project strictly for fun in July of 2011. The end result of this largely long-distance creation was the release of their Warm Fiction…

Ty Segall is a dirty blonde, cherub-faced, taco-loving surfer and skateboarder, an archetype of southern Californian dudeness. Although Segall is often labeled a garage revivalist, he refuses to be pigeonholed; solo period John Lennon, heavy metal, surf rock, punk and psychedelia are all incorporated in his music. With eight solo albums, endless touring and dozens of collaborations since 2008,…

    David Kunian
    1 Oct 2014 | 4:59 am
    Posted by David Kunian on This new record from Luke Winslow-King is more than several steps up from his previous fine record. That one, The Coming Tide, had great songs and good playing but, compared to this one, he and the band sounded like they were skating over the top of the music. Here, Winslow-King and his band seriously dig in and commit themselves to harder playing and a wider variety of what is called Americana music. This expanded palate includes blues, jazz, dirges, stomps, folk and even a taste of mariachi. The moods here vary but all have a great degree of soul. The…
  • Tuba Skinny, Owl Call Blues (Independent)

    1 Oct 2014 | 4:58 am
    Posted by Clea Simon on To call Tuba Skinny revivalists would be to miss the point. The New Orleans ensemble, often seen busking on Royal Street, have never conceded the death of the early jazz and blues they play. In their able hands, a tune like “Willie the Weeper” (likely written around 1904) is as relevant as ever. That’s a tribute to the masterful ease of these relatively young musicians who laze and weave around each other as if bebop never happened. Alternating solos and call-and-response vocals (notable on “Short Dress Gal”) on this, their sixth release, the…

Lizzie Lawlers, might fall apart under the flaying of the pages, as artists suffer through biographies too-literal, too-scholarly, or simply without enough imagination. I needn’t have. The Garons’ book, revised and expanded from an earlier edition, presents the artist in such a tantalizing manner than even if you haven’t heard her sides, you’ll run to your musical platform of choice, to sooth your ache. Memphis Minnie lived hard and…
  • Andre Williams, A Fortune of Hits (Night Train)

    Brett Milano
    1 Oct 2014 | 4:56 am
    Posted by Brett Milano on To his eternal credit, R&B maestro Andre Williams always had a very strange idea of what constitutes a hit record. Aside from the dance-craze tune “Bacon Fat”—which never tells you how the dance is done, or why it would be so named—his most notorious record is the 1957 single “Jail Bait.” A tune about the singer’s love for 15-year-old girls wasn’t about to hit the Top 10, but that’s what cult classics are made of. This double CD collects 35 tracks that Williams turned out for the Fortune label between 1955-60. Not every cut is a…

She has a flirtatious tone that invites the listener in. The arrangements are simple and uncluttered (by her husband, banjoist and composer Chris Edmunds) which allows for her voice to shine through. There are few surprises as Perez sticks to the melody with a few, well placed embellishments. The rhythm section of her band stays in the background, providing a tasteful grounding to the tunes while Joshua Starkman on guitar and Gregory Agid…

  • Dream Police to release “Hypnotized” Nov. 11 on Sacred Bones

    Andy Fenstermaker
    22 Sep 2014 | 6:05 am
    I have made it no secret that The Men‘s 2013 LP, New Moon, was among my favorite releases of the year. It marked a new pinnacle for the band, in my opinion; an arena slightly more accessible to the common listener and a bit more in line with my own personal tastes. Unfortunately, this year’s Tomorrow’s Hits hasn’t quite gripped me as much as its predecessor. Enter Dream Police and their forthcoming album Hypnotized. Dream Police is a project containing members of The Men — Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi — and it has a similarly forward-leaning style of…
  • Ty Segall’s “Manipulator” Marries Garage Rock and Glam

    Andy Fenstermaker
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:29 pm
    After a far-too-lengthy hiatus, I have returned. And my gaze first turns toward prolific rocker Ty Segall‘s new LP, Manipulator. Last year I became a bit obsessed with early T. Rex, as in the stuff they released pre “T” under the guise Tyrannosaurus Rex. In particular, the album Beard of Stars. Around the same time, Segall gave us Sleeper, an almost entirely acoustic album that very much channeled Marc Bolan in his early days. This was quite the departure for Segall, but also an instrumental period leading toward Manipulator. Now, I haven’t done my research — I…

    I have loved Darlings since they released their debut LP, Yeah I Know, back in 2009. Their subsequent EP and singles were equally pleasing to my ears. Then, in 2012, they released their sophomore LP, Perfect Trip, which easily trumped their prior releases. Now we have the first tease of what’s to come. It’s a song called “Centuries of Light” and it’ll be off the band’s third LP, which is called… well, we don’t even know what it’ll be called yet because the band hasn’t decided. I dig the sound. With each new release, Darlings stray a…

Couldn’t help but share one of the songs that made me fall in love with his music. Don’t think it’s about 4th of July itself, but hey, it’s called “Independence Day” so it’s worth sharing (though, you could also argue that Elliott Smith songs are ALWAYS worth sharing, and you’d also be right).

    One of my favorite new artists of 2013 was Seattle’s Rose Windows. Their debut LP, The Sun Dogs, on Sub Pop was a luscious array of mildly psych-induced folk rock fronted by Rabia Shaheen Qazi exotic vocals. It continues: Rose Windows have now given us a first taste of life beyond The Sun Dogs with a new single (also on Sub Pop) for “There Is A Light”. Others have traisped this arena before, as recently as the now popular Edward Sharpe — this blend of West-meets-East influenced folk-rock, this yearning for a more obscure and visionary sound.

    For some, it’s an enigma: loud, crass, tastelessly tasteful, and all things anti-authority and anti-establishment. Not easily defined, punk gained ground in a 70s England, when music, DIY fashion and anarchy defined a generation. Propelled by hardcore punk band Bad Brains and Ian MacKaye, who owns DC-bred record label Dischord, the relationship between Washington, DC and punk – particularly hardcore and the straight-edge movement – is closer than you might imagine. In the 80s, MacKaye gave birth to the straight-edge movement through his band Minor Threat. Born out of frustration…

    L.A. quartet Wand has delivered their first album, “Ganglion Reef,” and from our first listen, it’s clear that their freshman  album effort comes from an otherworldly state of mind. The 10 tracks eloquently dip from intergalactic transmissions to lo-fi riff driven rock while running parallel with a synth vibe. The opening track, “Send/Receive” starts out as a wall of sound but, if you are patient,  you will be greeted by the oozy gooey center of a heart beat-paced bass line and delicious reverb. Front man Cory Thomas Hanson brings a stroke of elegance to…

Really, if a movie were made about The Ramones, we’d want it to be directed by the great Martin Scorsese. Then we started thinking, who would Scorsese cast? Our excitement soon turned into horror as we imagined Martin Scorses’s favorite muse, Leonardo DiCaprio, acting in a role as Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee or Tommy…or any part, for that matter.  Not to say that…

The song’s kinetic dissatisfaction serves as an effective and familiar greeting to fans of emotionally-charged indie rock from the Midwest. This invigorating opener concludes with a wonderfully harmonized realization: “There’s not a single petrea within a hundred miles of the state I live in.”Though the lyrics on the first track give a magnetic power to a warm…

  • Music Video Review: Nick Wilson, Ashes

    11 Sep 2014 | 5:27 pm Nick Wilson in his music video Ashes, directed by Daniel Hearn Nick Wilson’s Ashes is a stripped down, barebones melodic song about a strained relationship that has finally made it to its breaking point. The chords strummed by Nick Wilson present a personal take on some of the break up songs heard on the radio to day. There are no bass, drum kits, or overused echoes to convey the voices in your head, there’s just Nick and his guitar. It sounds and feels like a song that we shouldn’t be hearing in the first place; is this a song that meant for only one pair of ears? The…

    Dark Blue released their single “Just One Of The Boys” last year and immediately enjoyed a flood of attention, much of it pointing out how much their singer’s voice sounds like Ian Curtis. And it does. But that’s about where the similarities with Joy Division end.Dark Blue isn’t precise, uptight, they don’t seem overly concerned with the perfection of their construct, and most important, they’re not morose. What they are is uninhibited, and free. Sloppily distorted guitars hover over drums played with the easy feel of an unmade bed on a Sunday…

While in the studio, they dropped a cover of Disclosure and Sam Smith’s “Latch,” the tune that launched the crooner’s career.As is their wont Alt-J turned “Latch” toward the weird side. They stripped out the groove and made it a more rigid rhythm, and laced it with their signature doubled vocals. While it’s sort of hard to hear this song…

    By Gemma Brosnan WITH Mount Vesuvius looming to the east, the fumaroles of Campi Flegrei steaming to the west, and the isle of Capri floating like a phantom across the bay, Naples is blessed with a strikingly vivid setting. Yet despite being surrounded by immense natural splendour, Italy’s third largest city is the real show on offer, an intense urban concoction of histrionic, chaotic uniqueness. Life here transpires on the streets with a pace that constantly sways between leisurely southern comfort and whirling frenzy, a blunt antithesis of sterility and homogeneity. Dense brooding lanes…

    Paragons - Got To Get AwayToday's Song of the Day is one of my all-time favorite reggae/rocksteady songs, the Paragons - Got To Get Away aka Man Next Door.  From 1968, this is not Bob Marley reggae, but slightly earlier, with tight harmonies, and a great melody over a grooving bottom bass line.  This is also the band that gave you the original Tide is High, long before it became at hit with Blondie.  This song too has been covered to great effect by others.

It has taken some time, but here we go with the CloudMusic HM12 Concert.CloudMusic ukes are made in the far east and this one retails for a very reasonable £179 in the UK ($239) putting it squarely in the more serious beginner category or a true intermediate.The HM12…

But in the wide range of ukes on the market, do you know what you are buying?This blogger is actually a self confessed lover of the plain ukulele. It's a case of few adornments, and letting the wood speak for itself for me. It's partly a taste thing, but also one about value for money, and I am talking about both here…

    The dust settles and WHAT a weekend to look back on. Time for me to share my memories of this fantastic event - the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival 2014 held in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, UK.FRIDAYA slow start for me heading up to Huddersfield on what should have been a 90 minute journey. My thanks go out to the Department Of Transport for kindly laying on road works on every single stretch of road on my route, meaning my trip was more like 200 minutes. I arrived, road weary but immediately uplifted in the hotel bar seeing many old friends, main stage acts and thoughts of a night in the town.

The song features many pop elements but is widely regarded as a bossa nova song primarily. The bossa elements are all present so we can accept that. What better way to bring in the summer than…

The song itself is pretty incredible. Rashida Jones, who directed the visual, took it to an entire different level.

    It’s been awhile since we featured a track by Matt Zanardo. The last we’ve heard from him was back in February remixing American Authors’ single Best Day of My Life. That song was definitely a party pleaser, but I really prefer this new direction that Matt is taking with Love Blind. This 4AM Mix is packed full of texture and ambiance. There’s a real atmosphere layered throughout the track, and it really shows how Matt Zanardo has come a long way as a producer. The instrumental is lively, and really lets off a late night vibe. The simple sample of “love…

    Before I get into this, let me state that I think ZHU’s cover of this CHVRCHES track is absolutely amazing. The overall vibe is so laid back and smooth, yet the production just begs you to dance. And the fact that they mystery man premiered this track on arguably the world’s best radio station, Triple J in Australia (We seriously need one of these in the US. A nationwide station with top notch music. Sirius/XM doesn’t count.), is a nice move on ZHU’s part. Australia is the biggest set of trendsetters when it comes to electro pop, so premiering a song there, with a…

It wasn’t a fun night being forced to take shelter in the hotel’s maintenance hallway. So until I get a chance to see VW live again, the band and I are in a bit of a rough patch. With that said, I can’t deny how awesome Ezra Koenig’s feature on SBTRKT’s single New Dorp. New York is.

Paul McCartney joined the band shortly afterwards as a rhythm guitarist. George Harrison was a friend of Paul’s and badly wanted to join the band. Though John initially thought the 14 year old Harrison was too young, he eventually agreed to let him join as lead guitar player.

Of course most of us understand the difference between real friends, and those we associate with via school, workplace and sometimes business. Sometimes I reflect upon my high school years as I approached graduation. The feeling of happiness and accomplishment were tempered because I was moving far away from home, where high school classmates and even…

    26 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    Ed Seay is one of Nashville's finest engineers and he's my guest on the latest Inner Circle podcast. Ed has a way of looking at and explaining recording that's crystal clear and he always has multiple nuggets of wisdom to offer, so this is one that I think you'll really enjoy.In the intro section I'll also discuss the future of the album and take a look at how different tuning standards can affect our mood and even our musical enjoyment.Remember that you can find the podcast either on iTunes or at, and now also on Stitcher.  Help support this…
  • Led Zeppelin "Ramble On" Isolated Lead Guitar Track

    Bobby Owsinski
    25 Sep 2014 | 9:30 pm
    Here's a very interesting isolated track from "Ramble On" by Led Zeppelin. It's the isolated lead guitar track, and while there isn't that much music of it (most of the track consists of only headphone leakage), it is pretty telling of how Zep recorded.What you'll hear is Jimmy Page's guitar parts in the turnaround before choruses, the solo harmony parts, and an interesting part at the end that's not on the record. Here's what to listen for:1. The first part enters at 1:05 and it's the pre-chorus clean guitar part. Nothing particularly remarkable here; it sounds just like the record.2. The…
  • Desqueak A Guitar Using iZotope RX4

    Bobby Owsinski
    24 Sep 2014 | 9:30 pm
    iZotope RX4 is one of the great tools for postproduction, now a standard for every engineer doing ADR, foley or sound design just about everywhere. It's also very effective in a musical capacity as well, as you'll soon see.This video by Russ at Pro Tools Expert (which is a great site you should really know about if you use Pro Tools) shows how you can use RX4 to clean up the squeaks from an acoustic guitar track. This is something that drives mixers crazy, but RX4 does a great job of attenuating them so they virtually disappear from the mix. RX4 also works great on electric guitar as well,…

    It is the rarity for music groups to keep the same lineup over the course of it's history.

    29 Jul 2014 | 9:56 am
         Last time many of you heard from me on this forum, we had stopped the radio show and the blog posts had slowed to a trickle. Life had changed our plans, and although we willing accepted the changes in our career plans and our move to Southern Mississippi, the extra responsibilities caused me to rethink some priorities and the radio show AND blog went by the wayside.     There were attempts on my part to re-ignite the blog by setting up a new site and domain name, but just couldn't get the mojo working again. A friend of mine said to me several years…

    6 Dec 2013 | 8:36 am
         A funny thing has happened to the Omnibus over the last two months...     In September of this year, I put the Omnibus aside for some time. We had moved to Southern Mississippi to assist with the care of my wife's mother. My desire was to continue teaching piano to children, which was what I had been doing in Nashville. For whatever reasons, I miscalculated my ability to quickly grow the same business down here, and found myself in the unenviable position of looking for work. The radio show was the first to go, and then about a month later it was…
  • Edwin Hawkins Singers--Oh Happy Day (1969)

    Cas Countz
    27 Sep 2013 | 8:39 am
          The advent of You Tube has brought an entirely different avenue for people to become music stars. In the early days of rock music especially in the US, artists would become popular in their local area, put a record out, and hope that a national chain would buy the contract so that the artist would get national exposure. This was the way that the Edwin Hawkins Singers would do it as well, the story behind this great song is even more interesting.     Edwin Hawkins was a prodigy, having taken over as the keyboard player in his family's gospel…

  • Happy Diving- Space Ooze

    26 Sep 2014 | 11:30 am
    Happy Diving's latest cut from their forthcoming debut album, Big World (Nov. 4th, Father/Daughter Records), is aptly titled because space ooze is what my face turned into after one minute and forty-eight seconds of face-melting fuzz.  Driving, pulsing, pounding, and relentless guitars are Happy Diving's m.o., but it's those subtle melodies that keep you hitting replay. What a helluva year for these guys.Sad Planet is another song that dropped exclusively on AbsolutePunk: Pre-Order vinyl here
  • Two Inch Astronaut- Foulbrood

    26 Sep 2014 | 10:00 am
    Is it finally time to attempt to scrape Bad Brother off my record player? Two Inch Astronaut,  my favorite band on Exploding in Sound Records, are preparing to release their second LP, Foulbrood. The title track and first peek into the new album finds the Colesville, Maryland trio hitting their pop sweet spot with a crisp and crunchy cut full of breezy melodies and arrangements. The track is fortified by TIA's signature knotted guitars; however, they are more contained and polished than usual, which allows Sam Rosenberg's sweet vocals to breathe and develop, and gives…
  • Daddy Issues- So Hard

    26 Sep 2014 | 8:30 am
    North Carolina's Daddy Issues lace cute and bubbly surf-pop-meets-60s-girl-group-croons with a sex-positive feminist rock twist. On their latest track, So Hard, the foursome dish out an infectious pop number about a seductive girl that can make her baby's dick hard from 15 miles away. It's The Ronettes and Beach House colliding with Lil' Kim at the shore, and my dick's so hard from over 1,000 miles away.So Hard by Daddy Issues

    Portland-based bed. continue to blow me away. Their latest single, Wayward, shines a bright light on Sierra Haager's sublime lungs which float coyly over blinking guitars and a slow-chugging rhythm that eventually bursts into a bout of fuzz-blown beauty. Wayward is a driving piece of post-grunge that further perpetuates bed.'s familiar yet unique brand of loud-soft-loud pure pop creations. The video was directed by Lisa Donato and Jeffrey Schwinghammer as part of the 2014 Music Video Race in San Francisco, which allowed Alex and Sierra to return to the mythical world in which they met…
  • Dilly Dally- Candy Mountain

    26 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    I had never heard of Dilly Dally before and they haven't been mentioned on any of my social timelines that are bloated with 90s nostalgic music nerds sharing their new favorites. I find this surprising because lead singer Katie Monk's guttural, grungy croon on "Candy Mountain" is commanding, haunting, as it creeps cooly over jarring bass rumbles and Pixies-esque rhythms. Why haven't the grunge apologists crowned their new queen yet? The Toronto-based four-piece has been around since 2009, but just recently finished recording their first full-length record. "Candy Mountain" is the a-side…

    John Fante’s Ask The DustI was turned onto John Fante around 6 months ago when I attended a show at Strange Brew in Austin, TX to see a local solo artist by the name of Matt The Electrician. Matt, The Electrician, was dually playing with a country-ish solo artist by the name of Joe Pug. Matt would play a song, then Joe would play a song, then they would have some conversation, then Matt, then Joe, and the night continued on in this fashion. Somewhere in the midst of one of their conversations, Matt gave Joe a gift.  The gift happened to be a book by John Fante. In explanation of the…

      The West Block, Parliament Hill, Ottawa – Scheduled to reopen in 2017 Having each calendar year begin on a seemingly arbitrary day smack in the middle of the winter – just another cold day, undistinguishable from the cold days that preceded it – always struck me as an odd way to start fresh. If I had my way, I would have advised Pope Gregory to start every year in September. What better way to begin anew than during the most dramatic seasonal transition of all, that from summer to fall? On the subject of fresh starts, I have recently moved. I packed up my things in Montreal…
  • Osheaga Wish List

    4 Aug 2014 | 5:39 pm
    Festival-goers waiting for the headliner acts on the main stages I’ve been sick for over a week now. Runny nose, headache, sore throat, hacking cough: sick. My voice swings from sounding like a suffocating chipmunk to Beast (à  la ‘Beauty and the’), if Beast smoked 4 packs a day. I’m doing everything right: resting, drinking hot lemon water and honey, eating well, taking vitamins, going for short walks…. nada. The Beast is here to stay. However, after a weekend of seeing masses of selfies and status updates, I’ve decided that my body is in protest for…
  • Welcome to My Zoo

    28 Jul 2014 | 5:01 pm
    I’m a sucker for a good bass line. This song by Glass Animals – an indie rock band from Oxford, England – delivers. When you grow up living with a sibling who plays the bass guitar non-stop, you cannot help but develop an ear for new, distinctive, groovy bass riffs. In fact, it is to your advantage to recommend new tracks to your sibling, otherwise you’re just stuck listening to “Aeroplane” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers on repeat. I also love all the background noises on this song. Listen closely! Maybe it’s the fact that I’m writing this in the middle of the Quebec…
  • Go West, Young Woman

    14 Jul 2014 | 5:08 pm
    Running of the bulls in the Camargue marshlands, France, 1998 I recently rediscovered my old high school diary. It is a treasure trove of late 1990s pop culture gems; no page goes by without some mention of Leonardo DiCaprio, Radiohead, My So-Called Life, or Titanic. None of that came as much of a shock to me. What did surprise me, however, was how much time and effort I devoted to staying in touch with friends. Entry upon entry details the harrowing experience of calling friends’ landlines and leaving messages with their parents. Which was then subsequently followed by intense worry and…
  • Sing With Me Whale

    7 Jul 2014 | 2:24 pm
    Whale! Port Stephens, NSW, Australia I had mixed reviews the first time I heard this song: loved it to start, but then found the constant repetition off-putting. I brushed it aside as a non-starter for Snapshots– only to have it slowly invade my subconscious over the next two weeks. Now it plays all the time– both in my head and in my apartment. I’ve found it ideal for hanging laundry, preparing lunch, cleaning out the cupboards… This lo-fi track “Whale” is from Brooklyn band Yellow Ostrich. It features tribal-like beats and increasingly layered vocals. It…

Soooo… a one-and-one this time around — the music from the AMAZING Flannel Graph should be more than enough for two. Hare and the Hounds not too shabby either, so I’m happy with the quality control on this post.

    If you’re following along, you know that this weekend is Riot Fest in Chicago. I, as stated before, am not there, but if you are, perhaps you should give this a heads-up. See, being in my 30s, and being that I was to be in a great city, I wanted to make sure I had time to spend in the city, with my friend, or both during the trip, instead of locking myself in Humboldt Park for 12 hours, eating overpriced fairground food, sitting in mud, and other things old folks don’t dig. As such, I went through the “bottom twenty” so to speak, or the bands which were listed lowest…
  • Mineral – Gloria

    11 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    This week, I was supposed to be preparing to go to my first music festival. Sure, as a teen I went to a few Ozzfests, and one legendary Locobazooka, but these were day-long events. I have never found myself at Bonnaroo, though I’m ecstatic with its turn from hippie blazefest to music festival over the course of the last decade. Lollapalooza, despite being an important touchstone from the ’90s, was a tour I was too young to get to in its first incarnation, and an event I’ve been overall unimpressed by as a three-day bender. Pitchfork’s fest would be intolerable. SXSW,…
  • What Makes a Parody “Good”?

    Alex Lupica
    6 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    It is a fact universally acknowledged that songs of a certain age and popularity are basically destined to find themselves covered by “Weird” Al Yankovic. It is probably equally acknowledged, however, that the man goes into and out of obscurity, like clockwork, at about the same rate as the songs he targets. The first big leaks of a Weird Al-bum blow up social media (this is true as far back as Alapalooza, the first release that was on my radar around 20 years ago, which came with MTV news briefs, exclusive premiers, and probably a round of Al-TV). Shortly after, he fades back…
  • Self – Runaway

    5 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Lots of people may argue this point, but without a doubt the most important thing to happen in music since we went off air in the spring, in my eyes, was the return of Self. Self, the band run by the creator of the score to Henry Hugglemonster and the Expedia (dot cooooooom) jingle. Self, the band you didn’t remember last time we talked about them, and might remember vaguely from us once mentioning them. Don’t judge: it was important to me! The nice thing is, this second time around, Self has gotten some fairly interesting support. They’ve performed on Jimmy Kimmell. They’ve had the…

    I first heard Allen Toussaint’s “Freedom For the Stallion” on his collaborative album with Elvis Costello, a collection of Toussaint’s songs, and some collaborative originals, meant to benefit the reconstruction efforts after Hurricane Katrina. The album was not exclusively themed around the event, but certainly songs like “The River In Reverse” were created to touch on the tragedy.  Other songs from Toussaint’s back catalog were equally diverse: some reflected the reality of a post-Katrina New Orleans, while others were simply solid tracks from the New Orleans musician’s…

    Broxbourne’s  Ivy and Gold (aka Rachel Wilkinson and Jamie Davies) were in London Wednesday evening (17th September 2014) to celebrate the release of their new EP ‘Smoke & Mirrors’, with a rather special live headline performance at the stunning ‘St. Pancras Old Church’. After a busy year for the electro-pop duo this was an opportunity to air their new material as well as tracks from their previous releases, the ‘Eye of the Storm’ and ‘Awake’ EP’s. The sold-out show at St Pancras Old Church confirmed that the band are very much in the ascendency. Memorable harmonies,…

    Those fortunate enough to follow Dan Michaelson on any of the various forms of social media will already be aware of the artists laid back and ‘share-all’ approach to the circus that can sometimes be the music industry. He is un-afraid to post criticism (see the very funny Amazon review on his Twitter account) and has a like-ability and sense of humour that you can’t help be drawn into. When you consider these factors and that the British singer-songwriter has also released one of 2014’s finest albums, ‘Distance’, there was no way the trek from east London to…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : Will and the People – ‘Whistleblower’

    Paul Smith
    11 Sep 2014 | 2:37 am
    Over the years i’ve not had the strongest of bonds with reggae. That same bond shatters completely when the genre is needlessly replicated by European artists, whose closest association to the West Indies is a can of Red Stripe and the distinction of owning Bob Marley’s ‘Exodus’. UB40 and their karaoke cover versions, of once outstanding releases, further destroyed any interest i had in a music type that was perviously renowned for social protest, and not red wine. However, my reggae bond, it would appear, now shows signs of a surprising recovery due to a clever mixture of the…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : In-Flight Safety “Conversationalist”

    Paul Smith
    1 Sep 2014 | 11:20 am
    A couple of weeks ago In-Flight Safety debuted their new track, ‘Animals’, and we instantly made it Track of the Day at GIGsoup. We even dared to suggest that the release maybe the catchiest indie-pop track of 2014. And while we salivated over the wonderful melodic chorus and it’s general feel-good factor we waited, quite impatiently, for the remaining 9 tracks that would make up the bands third album ‘Conversationalist’. ‘Conversationalist’ lands in the UK on September 22nd with Conehead and then in the US on October 14th with Ooh La La Records.

    When a band aims for their music to have "unique, acoustic, and alternative folk" sound, there's a good chance I'm going to like them -- especially when they're likened to The Lumineers and The Head and the Heart. This is Sun & Heir in a nutshell, and these Indianans are filling a gap in my heart left by the two aforementioned bands as well as Milo Greene as they've all been off recording. Sun & Heir, though -- they're the perfect replacement."Weekend" makes me so ready for Thanksgiving, even though I technically only live 20 minutes from home.And "Breathe My Mind" is perfect for this…

    Understanding The Proximity EffectDon't get too close...!The Proximity Effect describes how bass frequencies build up as we bring cardioid or bidirectional microphones closer to a sound source.  Many dynamic, condenser, and ribbon microphones fall into one of these categories.  Primarily affecting frequencies below 100 Hz, up to 16 dB of proximity-related boost can occur when the microphone is placed very close to the source.This apparent bass "boost" results from a combination of two things: the deliberate decrease in microphone transformer output at high frequencies, and the…

  • U2 and Apple: What Does It Tell Us?

    27 Sep 2014 | 12:00 am
    On September 9th, iTunes made history by pushing a free U2 album to it’s over 800 million users. Since then, it’s been painfully obvious that the Internet is not a fan. Reactions have ranged from the disappointed to the outraged to the just plain weird (Tyler, The Creator somehow managed to compare the album to herpes), and Apple has been forced to provide instructions for deleting the cursed object off your phone. While I admit that its tempting as a columnist to simply add to outraged noise – especially given my association with a rival streaming service – I’d instead like to take…

While that in itself would be enough to warrant a review, it’s important to note that not only does the album exist – but that it’s also quite good.  Songs like “Palisades Park” and “Possibility Days”display a musical adventurous not seen since 1999’s This Desert Life, while tunes such as “Scarecrow” and “Elvis Went To Hollywood” are simply catchy as…
  • Kendrick Lamar and the Dangers of Sampling

    13 Sep 2014 | 11:29 am
    For more music, mischief, and mayhem, follow me on Instagram and Twitter! It turns out you might want to think twice before making that mixtape—just ask Kendrick Lamar. Last week it was reported that two jazz musicians—Eric Reed and Willie Jones III—were suing Lamar for using unauthorized samples in his 2011 hit “Rigamortis.” According to Reed and Jones, “Rigamortis” is nothing more than a looped sample of their own tune “The Thorn,” which was released on their 2010 album, The Next Phase. While lawsuits over samples are nothing new, this particular one grabbed my attention…

However, if Arnold Schwarzenegger can be become Governor of California then clearly anything is possible.

Now, this is not enough to feel truly confident. This is only one part of the pie. To me, confidence also means choosing to do something and being in alignment with that. Alignment equals absence of contradictory thought.As a consequence, confidence becomes "choosing to do something because you believe it's good (alignment), knowing how to do that and trusting that you can do it well". Each part of the definition is equally…

    How to Sing Better

  • Should We Sing Like We Speak?

    Andy Barnes
    14 Sep 2014 | 4:12 am
    In my travels I have seen many different singing techniques, from no technique at all, to singing from your hips, and more recently I saw a video clip where a vocal teacher told a student to sing from their toes – go figure. One of the more popular techniques that has been around for a while is speech level singing and its many variants. While I am not here to criticize other singing techniques, I do want to explore this concept further in this article to understand whether singing and speaking are the same thing, or are they entirely different? Are Singing And Speaking The Same Thing?
  • Technique vs Style

    Andy Barnes
    16 Jul 2014 | 6:23 am
    In this post, I wanted to explore the importance of learning a good technique and how it can apply to singing style. We all know that there are different styles or genres in singing. From pop to classical/operatic, rock to R&B, country to gospel, and all variations in between. There is a myth that singing training or technique only applies to the classical or operatic singers, and singers from other styles and genres won’t benefit from learning how to sing correctly. Well, today I want to bust this myth, so let’s get started. What’s So Important About Technique…

That’s right, we are all born making sound naturally.Did you also know that your voice doesn’t have to deteriorate as you age. In fact, my singing teacher’s teacher was quite happily singing high C’s well into his 90’s and right up until the day he died. Most people seem to think that as you get older that you won’t be able to sing as you did when you were younger, but it’s a myth, your voice should get better with age, not worse. What’s The Problem I think we all have heard a…
  • How To Get Better At Singing – The Bottleneck Octave

    Andy Barnes
    24 Mar 2014 | 1:58 am
    Most singers will spend much of their career learning how to successfully navigate the bottleneck octave, trying to achieve a smooth transition from one end of their range to the other. You may have heard this concept referred to as the “mix”, or mixing/blending the voice. What ever name people will give it, they are essentially all talking about the same thing. In this article, I want to answer the question of how to get better at singing by exploring the bottleneck octave, defining what it is, why it is the cause of so many problems and how we can learn to smash through it.

In this article, I want to focus on the concept of resonance and how it applies to the human voice and how we can use it to answer the question of how to improve singing power and tone. Lets get started shall we. How to Improve Singing Power and Tone By Understanding Resonance I had an epiphany one day during a singing lesson when my teacher was explaining something to me.

    Taylor Locke at El Cid. Taylor Locke is the sound of the new Wild West. Midnight cowgirls and cowboys alike shake to the rattlesnake rhythm in underground venues in LA’s Silver Lake.  Taylor Lock is not a country rock band, though, more like glam, echoing canyons, and a shot of whiskey. Their sound has been permeating over social networking sites in anticipation of their debut release, Time Stands Still, October 13th. In front of an intimate crowd at Silver Lake’s underground spot, El Cid, Taylor Locke brought a classic rock vibe that’s been missing for many desert moons.
  • 8 Most Overrated/Underrated Musicians

    29 Sep 2014 | 9:10 am
    A music site just wouldn’t be complete without at least one post about overrated musicians. It’s not that I don’t like “mainstream music” aka Top 40; there are some songs I can listen to without wanting to stab myself in the ear. It’s just that some artists are played way too often while others aren’t played often enough. I know that radio is a business like any other, but I have an appreciation for stations that don’t mind taking a risk and playing something “off-center” every now and then. I know the terms “overrated” and “underrated” are…
  • Women in Rap: Rising Stars to Watch Now

    Rachel Richey
    29 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    2014 has been called the year of the female rapper. Not only is industry giant, Nicki Minaj, looking to release an album this year, but several new faces are poised to break into the mainstream. This is good news for an industry that has heard far too few female voices in the last 10 years. It seems that strong female voices have been largely regulated to the underground scene, struggling to build a name for themselves in an industry that often overlooks and under-appreciates women.

VIER runs stand-alone on Windows and Mac OS X or as plugin via VST, AU, RTAS and AAX. The software is available on the Eisenberg website and has an introductory…
