    Arby’s has a secret menu item (meaning it’s not on the official menu but you can request it and they’ll make it for you) called the Meat Mountain. It’s a truly formidable tower of meats, and it all started because of this promotional photo: Arby’s created that poster to remind consumers that the chain sells plenty of meats besides its famous roast beef. This marketing strategy worked, apparently, because people started coming in asking if they could order that entire stack o’ meats. And the Meat Mountain was born. Here’s what the $10 monstrosity-on-a-bun includes: - 2 chicken…

    (AllHipHop News) Jeezy is a thug motivator, Mr. 17.5 and a civil rights leader..in his own right. In his first interview since his prison release, Jeezy speaks on why his bail posting took so long, why he does not want his son being a rapper and more. Jeezy was arrested on August 24th over gun possession charges and did no post his $1 million bail until four days later on August 28th. While Jeezy states that he is “100% sure” he will be exonerated of the gun charges, he explains to The Breakfast Club earlier today (September 2nd) he could have been released the same night he was…

    All-conquering noise-rock sensation Girl Band streamed their latest release, 'De Bom Bom', over a month ago, and finally they've revealed an accompanying video. The clip is minimalist and greyscale, a description completely at odds with the exhilarating aural workout offered by 'De Bom Bom'. The extensive bag of production tricks and guitar effects is even more impressive when the band wrote, recorded and produced the single with no outside help. The follow up to Record Store Day release 'The Cha Cha Cha' - which lasted 24 seconds - 'De Bom Bom' is out now on Any Other City Records, with the…

    Somewhere along the way, The Janoskians made the transition from YouTube-famous comedy troupe to surprisingly decent boy band. Given the crossover success of other social media superstars like Troye Sivan and Shawn Mendes, you can’t help but think the Australian five-piece is due for a breakthrough with new single “That’s What She Said”. The band’s follow-up to irritatingly catchy viral hits “Real Girls Eat Cake” and “This Freakin Song” drops September 9. The video, which was filmed on a Californian beach, arrives the same day.

Seriously, if anything, it’s better in hindsight. When you’re a little kid, the character of Nona’s dad is nothing more than an overprotective square, but watch it as an adult and — holy shit that’s Iggy Pop! It was all so perfect: school bullies with personas better than some Bond villains; Steve Buscemi as school guidance counselor; Michael Stipe selling Sludgesicles; and especially the excellent…

But neither one became a stoner favorite by explaining scientific concepts to kids. They do that, sure, but they also work on a blow-your-fucking-mind level, mostly by pointing out the tiny…

Two days as opposed to others’ four or five, or others’ double weekends; four stages in somewhat close quarters on a shut-down Benjamin Franklin Parkway; a lineup of a size where, somehow, you don’t really have to worry about significant conflicts between artists you want to see. But, of course, it has a bigger pedigree — you know, Jay Z, but also the fact that it’s got big old Budweiser logos emblazoned everywhere. For a young…

Critics greeted it with near-universal hosannas, and count me in as one of its admirers. But a certain amount of grumbling could also be detected–and when my almost-from-boyhood pal and Popdose colleague Jon Cummings went thumbs down, I knew it was time to hash it out.

Taking a stand-up comedian and translating their act or persona into a sitcom is a TV staple. But before FOX’s upcoming Mulaney, and before Roseanne’s sardonic stand-up routines on blue collar life became Roseanne, or Bill Cosby’s tales of exasperated fatherhood became The Cosby Show, there was Gabe Kaplan and Welcome Back, Kotter. This week, Shout! Factory released Welcome Back, Kotter: The Complete Series, the latest in the company’s long line of excellent…
  • ALBUM REVIEW: Ben Vita and the Renaissance Committee, “Biology”

    Allison Johnelle Boron
    29 Aug 2014 | 8:35 am
    Progressive, experimental, and yet, so personal and universal. Woodstock, NY-based musician Ben Vita deviates from his history of politically-charged material and creates something truly extraordinary — and wholly refreshing. At a time when Plasticine pop rules, a bit of avant-garde can go a long way. On Biology, Vita’s latest record, he’s joined by a group of players and friends known as the Renaissance Committee, who unarguably add something invaluable to the album via a wealth of instruments and adventurous creativity. Vita allows them to flow with the music, guided…

    2 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    photos by Victoria Holt (view set) Julianna Barwick - 5:30 p.m. If Julianna Barwick had been placed on an outdoor stage, soundbleed would have all but ravaged her performance, so it’s worth commending the Bumbershoot curators for not only booking such an experimental artist, but also putting her in a venue that she would shine in. As unpredictable as Bumbershoot’s lineup is every year, it doesn’t typically book someone as avant-garde as Barwick, and her ambient creations stood singularly in the weekend. The Brookyln singer/composer’s set was stirring in its ability to…

    Holiday weekends are never the most robust for new releases, but some exciting albums did make the schedule this week. KEXP’s Music Director Don Yates points out the third release from Sinkane, a project of Sudanese-born, Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist/vocalist (and former Yeasayer/Caribou/Of Montreal sideman) Ahmed Gallab. Yates describes their latest as “a masterful blend of soul, funk, reggae, various East and West African styles and more, featuring warm, lush, groove-driven tracks with plaintive vocals, strong hooks and emotionally direct lyrics.” Another notable…
  • Song Premiere: Purling Hiss - Forcefield of Solitude

    2 Sep 2014 | 1:00 pm
    photo by Aaron Biscoe When you name your album Weirdon, you set an expectation, and the Philly-based lo-fi project Purling Hiss certainly deliver on the track “Forcefield of Solitude,” which KEXP is proud to premiere on air at 1PM today. The album hits shelves September 23rd on Drag City Records. Purling Hiss began in 2009 as a solo home-recording project of singer/songwriter Mike Polizze, whose burned CD-Rs garnered him opening spots for bands like Kurt Vile and the War on Drugs. After releases on Woodsist and Mexican Summer, the band matured into a trio last year for their first…

    photos by David James Swanson One snare hit. That’s all the notice the audience received that the curtain around the stage was opening and Jack White was beginning the second of his two nights at the Paramount Theatre with “Fell in Love With A Girl”. Just under two minutes later, he was playing the unmistakable riff to another White Stripes classic “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground”. Combined with the off-the-cuff nature of White’s performances, the night’s performance was an urgent, compelling snapshot of a musician who, twenty years into his…

  • Exclusive Hands-on with Komplete Kontrol S25 Keyboard [Pictures, In-Depth]

    That NI is making a keyboard to provide access to its Komplete line of production tools should surprise no one. And not just because of numerous leaks – it’s the next logical step for the Berlin software developer. After all, NI has an entire line of hardware that makes access to Traktor easier for DJing. And it developed Maschine, a software tool that from the beginning was built to facilitate hybrid hardware/software workflows. The thinking is simple: computer software offers terrific versatility, but when it comes time to actually explore sounds and play, you want knobs and…

Native Instruments is releasing an update to its Komplete suite of production tools (including Massive, Kontakt, Absynth, Reaktor, and others). And while the software update is largely composed of some (nice) new instruments, the banner news here is hardware. As NI has done with its DJ line (Traktor Kontrol) and Maschine groove workstation, the company is unveiling integrated hardware that makes for a hybrid hardware/software solution. The Komplete Kontrol instruments come in 25, 49-, and 61-key variations, coupled with…
  • white whale Makes your monome Into an Amazing Modular Step Sequencer

    It seems everyone is getting in on modular gear these days, thanks to the Eurorack format. But many of these modules are variations on a theme – new models of old classic modules, existing synthesis components and filters that have just been reborn as a module. monome white whale, shipping this month, is something different. Connect a monome grid controller to a modular, and suddenly that array of light-up buttons becomes a probabilistic sequencer. It’s live performance oriented in a way too few modules are. The results are surprising and lovely. The solution isn’t cheap…

    Guessing that ‘new’ flag will not be a feature. This image has been making the rounds. Keeping new musical instrument announcements under wraps prior to embargo dates is proving, again, to be more or less impossible. Native Instruments’ Komplete updates, teased in a video on Friday, have now been prematurely revealed via one print magazine hitting newsstands (Beat, in Germany), and multiple leaks by dealers (some even crawled by Google, according to a CDM reader). Forum members at GearSlutz have been dutifully reproducing everything, leaving few secrets. From there, the…

You can find references to lynching in a number of blues, country, and folk songs: Bob Dylan’s “Desolation Row” alludes to the 1920 lynching of three black circus workers in Duluth, and Toby Keith and Willie Nelson sang about punishing the wicked with “all the rope in Texas” and a tall oak tree in “Beer for My Horses.” Below are five songs — nearly…

I’m a fan of their brand of blues-soaked, psychedelic rock and was excited to check out their new EP, Beyond Seasides, which is actually the band’s very first recording. So this is going back to 2003, when Christopher Bear (Grizzly Bear) was the band’s drummer. I was surprised that the tracks here are way thicker, denser than the more modern material. It usually goes the other way around. Here ya go: Besides Seasides by Earl Greyhound

Dolores Tucker or the Parents Music Resource Center in an era where any kid can listen to songs on YouTube and experience 1000x the profanity…and that’s just in the comments (*rimshot*). Nonetheless, creating radio edits was good business, a nod to DJs to let them know that it’d be safe to play this new single without the FCC getting on their ass.However, clean edits are an art.

  • Exclusive Premiere | Moon Hooch EWI Video

    2 Sep 2014 | 10:50 am
    Brooklyn trio Moon Hooch have described their sound as "cave music," which they feel is like house music but more organic, primitive and raw. The group will show off their inventive style on their sophomore studio effort - the aptly-titled This Is Cave Music, due September 16 via Hornblow Recordings and Palmetto Records. Moon Hooch started out by busking in the NYC subways, where they've been banned from the Bedford Ave L station after the NYPD had to break up one too many impromptu underground raves, and have recently brought their music to the masses with national tours and performances at…

Cause I want one." - Brian Christopher photos by Scott Lynch for Gothamist As you probably heard on the news, NYC EDM festival Electric Zoo, went down without a single reported overdose over the weekend. This may have been in part due to their major effort to educate people and stop drugs from getting in, and maybe.... thanks to the drug amnesty bins that were placed on premises. I wonder if anyone really dropped anything in to one of those. More pictures like the two above by Scott Lynch, at Gothamist. Electric Zoo was…

Luckily (for Kings of Leon fans), they did get to play, despite the fest almost pulling an Electric Zoo and shutting down due to rain on Sunday.

While his sepia-drenched hospital horror show The Kingdom only ran for two seasons, Von Trier has recently announced that he will be returning to television for a new series called The House That Jack Built. In a press conference held over the weekend for the release of Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac Volume II – Director’s Cut, producers announced that The House That Jack Built will be in the English language and feature a huge international cast.

Recording revenues have been declining for more than 10 years, and they continue to decline precipitously year-over-year.  This has dismantled the label system, once the most reliable form of artist financing. 3. Digital formats continue to grow, but not enough to overcome broader declines in physical CDs. 4. Even worse, the evolution of formats keeps pushing the value of the recording downward.  Streaming pays less than downloads; downloads paid less than…

  • Music Kits #1: DIY guitar effect pedal kits

    30 Nov 2010 | 3:18 pm
    Over the last couple of years, I’ve spent a few evenings building DIY guitar effects. It's fun to build things that you can use. If you want to get started, one of the hardest things is buying components. Try to buy a 10Ω resistor from Farnell, and you’re faced with a choice of 345 items. So, starting out buying a kit is a good idea. At least you’ll know the parts are right, even if when your soldering isn’t. However, not many people sell kits. Despite the potential markup on a handful of bulk components, the customer service is - presumably - a nightmare. Here are 23 companies who…

    2 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Last Friday night, gothic Americana band Handsome Family bewitched their way into the hearts of a gaggle of scruffy Brooklynites with their trademark spooky folk songs and adorable husband and wife banter. Formed in Chicago over twenty years ago, the couple (Brett and Rennie Sparks) have since relocated to Albuquerque, NM, and have enlisted guitarist Alex McGrath of the Soil And The Sun to join them on tour. The band is enjoying a recent surge of success due to their haunting country number, Far From Any Road, being selected as the theme song for HBO’s True Detective.   Their set…

    By Matthew Ebel who is currently Kickstarting a new album. I’ve played concerts all over the USA and there’s one constant that most touring musicians already know: People don’t know how to drive. Seattle drivers are maniacs, Boston drivers are assholes, Nashville drivers are NASCAR wanna-be’s, and Ohio drivers are most likely taking a power nap behind the wheel. Everywhere else, the drivers are an alarming cocktail of the above. After putting thousands of miles of pavement behind me, I’ve developed what I call Ebel’s Laws as a strategy for surviving the road. Thus far I’ve been…

    As anyone who has flown United in the past quarter-century knows, the company has a long-standing history with George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. 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…

  • Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue

    Alice
    17 Aug 2014 | 5:30 am
    What is a classic album? Not a classical album – a classic album. One definition would be a recording that is both of superb quality and of enduring significance. I would suggest that Miles Davis’s 1959 recording Kind of Blue is indubitably a classic. It presents music making of the highest order, and it has influenced — and continues to influence — jazz to this day. Cover art for Kind of Blue by the artist Miles Davis (c) Columbia Records via Wikimedia Commons. There were several important records released in 1959, but no event or recording matches the importance of the…

Hoy la realidad se descompone y se hace imprevisible pero a la vez se rehace sobre y contra nosotros. Nadie sabe qué pasará. Los discursos políticos son intercambiables. Sólo los presentimientos tienen fuerza y permiten tomar una posición. Buscamos presentimientos valientes, insospechados, veraces… liberadores.

    Do you ever wonder how you’re faring in the realm of Online Reach and Influence? Maybe you need to stop and take a snapshot of where you stand.

A 3i is a listing of your current number of friends, followers and other statistics that indicate how well you’re connecting with customers and fans online. It’s a quick measurement of your Internet presence. I refer to it as a snapshot because, if you’re proactive at all online, the numbers will be in constant flux – hopefully in an upward direction.

      “Of all the lies told to musicians, here’s the biggest lie of them all: you have to give your talent away for free.” That’s how Ted Gioia starts off the article of his I just discovered yesterday. Give it a read for a refreshing perspective. Here are a few more gems from Gioia’s piece: Creative people in a wide range of fields keep hearing the ridiculous mantra that “content wants to be free.” The music industry is the worst offender. Many label execs tell artists that musicians shouldn’t expect to generate income from their recordings.

    18 Aug 2014 | 4:08 am
    Here's a video about recording with headphones half-off Recording vocals usually necessitates hearing something to sing to. In the very old days, singers recorded with speakers positioned in the vocal booth or studio room so as not to bleed monitor sound onto the vocal track. Well, maybe not SO old... Actually, I used this approach a couple of years ago when recording a large ensemble for a demonstration musical theater cast recording. We were doing in 'on the cheap' and so had to make do in a studio that was not equipped for the big group. It was kind of like wiring my bus headlights back to…

    Your songwriting is a form of intellectual property, and as such, it falls to you to protect it from theft. There are different levels of protection you can use.There is the paper and electronic trail... dated lyric sheets, worktape recordings, emails to cowriters, etc. NOTE: The 'poor man's copyright' (sending your song through certified and unopened mail to yourself) has long been debunked as useless.Also... it's a good idea, as suggested in this article at professorpooch.com, to include the little circled 'c' copyright symbol and the name of the owner of the song in any lyric you share…

    This will be short but powerful post with a professional tip I have learned to sing my lowest notes in the vocal booth. For the first time, I'm including a little impromptu video from my webcam to illustrate. Simply put your hand on your sternum over your heart and gently press. It should cause your chest to open, not closed!) If you're doing it properly, you'll be getting taller, not shorter. Make sure your head stays back, don't let it bow forward.You should find a resonant, rich, not hooty low note much easier to sing, and more controllable, too.Did you try it? What did you notice?

    7 Jul 2014 | 11:24 am
      A basic requirement of the singing voice is the ability to sing in tune.  Otherwise you must be content to make a joyful noise! I have tried several things in my vocal coaching and have settled on a three step process that is amazingly effective, even with people with some ear damage or who have been told they were tone deaf. Focusing on active listening, it trains the processing chain to be 'ear-to-brain-to-vocal cords' instead of just 'ear-to-vocal cords'. It's great for beginners, but also is very effective for experienced singers who want to correct pitch problems and gain an…

We all know there’s a point at which our boys are no longer “cute” kids, but perceived as threats.  In fact, there’s been research that shows black boys as young as 10 may not be viewed in the same light of childhood innocence as their white peers, but are more likely to be mistaken as older.  Of course, this has huge implications for the ways we parents prepare our boys to move…

This is regardless of it being from 100 years ago or one day ago, on paper or on a digital screen. Yet, one can imagine that for most people it is how the photo reflects who you are that brings the most distinct feelings.

    15 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    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…

    It's Tuesday afternoon and I'm minutes away from phoning Matthew Sweet for an interview when I happen to hit Twitter on my phone and see a breaking story that Hank LoConti, longtime owner of the Cleveland Agora has just passed away at age 85. The news hit me like a ton of bricks because Hank was always a guy who was so full of life that it was hard to imagine that he could actually be gone. He was someone that when you met him, you would be surprised to find out how old he was, because he always looked at least a decade younger than he actually was. And yet he had been sick, battling lymphoma…

    I had the chance to speak with Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen for this week's issue of Scene. The band is in town Thursday night for a show at the Hard Rock Live. Check out Rick's thoughts on pizza and more right here. In that same issue, you'll also find a conversation with Rachel Bolan of Skid Row. The '80s metal dudes keep on rollin' and they'll be at the Cleveland Agora on Thursday night as well. So if you were looking for something to do Thursday evening, you've now got a couple of options!

    #98032918 / gettyimages.com I got a chance to speak with Journey guitarist Neal Schon for a piece that ran  in this week's edition of the Cleveland Scene prior to their upcoming show here in the area on Tuesday evening with Steve Miller Band and Tower of Power. As is often the case, writing that story sent me to the music stacks to pull out some Journey. I was going to Buffalo to see Blue Rodeo and wanted to load in some tunes for the car. It's funny, for a long time, there wasn't really a lot of live Journey available officially beyond the well known (and for many people, the essential)…

It doesn’t exactly look like me but it was the best I could do with the choices I had available. (For example, I have really tiny ears.) You can make one for yourself at www.faceyourmanga.it.

Tickets are free but there aren’t many left… call The Carriageworks Theatre on  0113 2243801 for the last few remaining.  In my last two posts I talked about priming the subconscious to do the heavy lifting when it comes to idea generation, the need to capture ideas when they bubble up and the most efficient and effective way to do this; and using GoodNotes and Adonit Mini stylus on the iPad to mark up scripts.

  • Sounds Heard: Michael Ching—A Midsummer Night’s Dream

    Frank J. Oteri
    2 Sep 2014 | 10:12 am
    Michael Ching’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is resolutely tonal, frequently extremely tuneful, and sometimes borders on pop. Yet it is radical and totally unexpected. There are no Instruments in the orchestra, every sound is made by voices. It sounds nothing like what you might imagine an opera based on Shakespeare would sound like. And yet it totally works.

    While localities and regions may be less important in terms of a specific shared sound or group of influences (although that’s still a possibility, too), I’d contend they remain essential as accumulations of a “critical mass” of resources and opportunities to collaborate.

    Looking around, listening around, culture is as stylistically non-hegemonic as I’ve ever experienced. But parallel to that is a kind of greater semiotic compartmentalization: the vast majority of cultural artifacts I encounter keenly announce their stylistic allegiance early and often.

Dottie doffs the traditional pulse for which she is so well known and goes Nina Simone on this slow inspirational ballad about that which is inevitable. Indeed, Simone recorded the song in the 1970s, although the original was waxed by Quincy Jones, featuring the song’s composer, Benard Ighner, on vocals. Dottie does a fine job with this contemplative song.  She transitions from jazzy chanteuse to fiery evangelist when,…

  • Athens, GA: 25 years later

    Peter Lee
    19 Aug 2014 | 6:58 pm
    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…

Things sure have sped by! I promise to do better!" And then...nothing.It becomes as empty and desolate as real estate in Detroit. This hiatus was not due to the fact that I was too busy, or forgot. This blog entered my head every day. But I had briefly lost the will to write. I have been working on a novel for almost 10 years. It was historical fictional / alternate history involving a real rock n roll band.
  • 30 Worst Taylor Swift Lyrics

    Peter Lee
    28 Apr 2014 | 7:54 am
    Finding bad lyrics to Taylor Swift songs is like shooting fish in a barrel - it's easy, you end up with way too much to take home and it's a messy job. During my recent textual analysis of Swift's lyrics, I found a plethora of bad lines - some that made me laugh out loud, and some that made me cringe. She doesn't use a lot of different words, nor does she use various themes. In fact, a few appear over and over: She's always standing in the rain. People are always throwing rocks at her windows. She drives around with boys in the middle of the night, or argues with them in the middle of the…

    24 Apr 2014 | 1:18 pm
    Taylor Swift has always been applauded for her songwriting - it's rare, especially in country music, for singers to actually write their own songs, especially at the tender age of 15. But now that Swift is 24, she has about a decade of songwriting experience. What does she write about? (Duh - ex-boyfriends) Has her songwriting improved? I undertook a quick textual analysis of her lyrics, complete with word clouds, to see what it is Swift actually writes about. Since Swift has released four albums, I divided the albums into a timeline of two albums each: 2006-2008, and 2010-2012, to measure…

So when I saw that Paul McCartney was performing at Philips Arena June 21, I immediately thought of my daughters. I saw Paul perform several years ago at Piedmont Park, and afterwards I could finally say that I had seen a Beatle perform live. But I wanted to share that special moment with my daughters, so even though it was past their bedtime, I asked my mother-in-law to give the kids the phone so they could…

    In our working lives, we are in many ways still stuck in the age of the Industrial Revolution. When the masses worked in factories, the office support personnel worked the same hours, or at least “regular working hours” and commuted daily to central offices. Perhaps there was a sense that all workers needed to be under the watchful eye of the Master and therefore they needed to gather in one place to be supervised, like kids in school? Are we not past that phase? We are challenging every single person to take responsibility for his or her own working environment. Let’s stop…

The Marseilles-born, Paris-based designer was faced with a double challenge. The family has owned this apartment for generations, yet Champsaur’s brief was to make it “unrecognisable,” as he is quoted as saying in a magazine article.

This is the fourth Samovar in owner Jesse Jacobs’ little empire (the other three are also in San Francisco), and clearly different from the others which are more traditional tea houses. The Mission Samovar is a feast for the eyes and soul in its fine minimalist balance. What is NOT there makes this altar of tea-time contemplation so incredibly beautiful. The antidote to the…

    11 Aug 2014 | 5:44 pm
    Yesterday was pretty glorious…and by glorious, I mean lazy! I’m usually gigging on Sunday afternoons and after a late night gig on Saturday it can be pretty exhausting. Since I had the day off yesterday I figured I would do absolutely nothing and get some rest. So for dinner I opened up some wine and the refrigerator and threw some ingredients together for this delicious plate of nachos. I’m notorious for buying too many groceries so this was a perfect recipe to use up some leftover chicken, beans and veggies. I spent a little more time adding ingredients to each chip…

This lovely little recipe landed in my inbox from my favorite blog, The Simply Luxurious Life, and I was instantly inspired. I didn’t change a thing and it turned out absolutely delicious. I’m obsessed with caramelized onions and the flavor of the wine soaked onions and thyme paired so beautifully with the tangy goat cheese and flaky puff pastry. It’s the perfect appetizer or mid day snack. I ate one cold the day after and the flavors were so bold and scrumptious! So add this to your list…

    Disclaimer 1: I am a Lana Del Rey fan Disclaimer 2: I am a singer When I first heard Lana Del Rey’s breakout single “Video Games” I have to admit…I wasn’t completely sold, but I was definitely intrigued. Her seductive tone and alto range was different and refreshing next to the powerhouse vocal stylings we’ve seemingly come to expect from female pop vocalists. She’s no Beyonce or Ariana Grande, she’s Lana. And the throng of screeching teenage girls at Wednesday night’s show proved that Lana doesn’t need to prove herself to anyone.

    Ridley Scott’s upcoming Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings—which stars Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley—is facing a similar criticism as many other high-profile Hollywood Bible adaptations: Its casting of predominantly white actors. Now, in an interview with Yahoo, director Ridley Scott has addressed the controversy: Egypt was—as it is now—a confluence of cultures, as a result of being a crossroads geographically between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. We cast major actors from different ethnicities to reflect this diversity of…

In an interview with The New York Times, he said, “I remember, at like 25, saying, 'I don't want to be a 40-year-old rapper.' I'm 39 now, and I'm still standing by that. I'm such a fan that I don't want to infiltrate it with old blood.” It remains to be seen exactly what that means for the rapper, as he also said he’d love to put out another album.

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.

    Kenneth Partridge
    2 Sep 2014 | 11:15 am
    Even before the advent of videos, pop music did a decent job of educating the youth. As Bruce Springsteen sang on “No Surrender,” he and his fellow baby boomers “learned more from a three-minute record” than they ever did in school. The Boss is a sharp guy, but had he come of age in the MTV era, he’d be about a hundred times smarter. That’s because once videos took hold, well-meaning musicians finally had the ideal forum for disseminating their wisdom and molding young minds. One subject that rock and pop stars have always excelled in is, of course, world history. Thanks to…

    The Runaways were put together by producer Kim Fowley, a name that brings to mind svengali connotations for anyone briefed in ’70s rock. Then the all-girl band broke away — even turned on — Fowley. Naturally, these stories received some major ink in Runaways’ singer Cherie Currie’s 1989 memoir, Neon Angel, which went on to be adapted into the 2010 Runaways biopic. With all this in mind, here’s a heartwarming story, via Currie’s Facebook page: “Life is ironic. Kim Fowley was moved into my home a week ago Friday. I have been a 24/7 caregiver for him.

    It’s a cliché to wax lyrical about pieces of art “changing your life,” and as often as not it’s hyperbole — but I can honestly say that 20 years ago today, an album was released that would have a genuine effect on my life’s direction. The album is by a band who remain underappreciated Stateside, namely Manic Street Preachers, and it’s called The Holy Bible.

This fall, we’re seeing a few trends: indie/alt rock staples searching for reinvention (Weezer, Wilco, Interpol, even Karen O); the adventurous new sounds of English pop, whose players are looking to prove themselves beyond promising debuts (SBTRKT, Jessie Ware, alt-J, Charli XCX); and bold departures from…

    7 Jul 2014 | 2:56 pm

Outspoken and passionate in his beliefs, #TrialsOfAli examines how one of the most celebrated sports champions of the 20th century risked his fame and fortune to follow his faith and conscience as he found himself at the centre of America's controversies over race, religion, and war. #BUFF2014, supported by Channel 4, will premiere "The Trials of…

    Many people feel the need to play advanced, note-perfect versions of their favourite songs. After consulting with our subscribers and followers of Grade Music TV, we found out that simple tutorials of a song in it’s most basic form appeals more than learning fancy chords, quaver runs or complex rhythms that might have appeared in it.

As always, do let us know what you think and how you feel the tutorials could be improved. Regards…

    13 Aug 2014 | 7:27 am
    Kind of a janky video of some guy playing the song on vinyl on to video, but the song is the business.For the first half of the song it's a slow ballad, and then it explodes at 3:03 just after intimating, "Oh, life can bring you down" a few times. It's clear based on the album title, Heal, and the lyrics from this song, and the forlorn bearded man looking right on the album cover, and him not wearing a shirt that he's going through something. I appreciate the rawness used to bring me along on the journey. Thanks!High quality audio can be found here.Lyrics:I was in a haze, and you were in…

    2 Sep 2014 | 8:41 am
    Although it wasn’t the first song of theirs I’d heard, the first Dads song I really took note of was “No, We’re Not Actually.” The song closes out last year’s breakout Pretty Good EP – and lyrically it details a refusal to accept the mortality of a loved one. Its release also coincided with my own father’s hospitalization and subsequent passing and became somewhat of a healing mechanism because, well, in a situation like that it’s so easily relatable. Fast forward a year to the New Jersey band’s latest single “Fake Knees”…

I’m sure this is going to sound like common sense to a lot of you but you’d be surprised at how many people walk into our work building asking where the recording studio is. To many people’s disappointment, we have to explain that a record label is not the same thing as a recording studio.

He also has an incredibly awesome publicity photo (see above). It (the song – not the publicity shot) is a grinding monster of a rock n’ roll jam constructed with a sludgy, grooving, reverb-drenched guitar riff and Ty Segall on drums. If you’re not enjoying this tune as much as the girl in the song’s video, you’re probably doing something wrong. You can preorder the album from Sub Pop and receive a special limited-edition…

It’s a truly formidable tower of meats, and it all started because of this promotional photo: Arby’s created that poster to remind consumers that the chain sells plenty of meats besides its famous roast beef. This marketing strategy worked, apparently, because people started coming in asking if they could order that entire stack o’ meats. And the Meat Mountain was born.

    Gabriel Iglesias Is One Brave Comedian When it comes to stand-up comedians, no one is braver, more courageous, or has more guts than Gabriel Iglesias. His pluck doesn’t necessarily stem from his act but from his off-stage behavior. First of all, Iglesias was given two years to live by a doctor.  Did he have cancer?  No, Iglesias’ disease was fluffiness.  Or should I say “morbid fluffiness.”  Iglesias had ballooned to over 450 pounds and was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes.  “Don’t you want to live to be 100?

For example, on Dec. 20 Trans-Siberian Orchestra performs in Boston and San Antonio.  In fact, TSO performs two shows in both cities.  How is this possible?  Air travel is fast nowadays but not that fast. It’s possible because the Trans-Siberian Orchestra splits into two touring bands.  These bands are called TSO East and TSO West (the geographical titles are mere guidelines and…

    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…

I’m not the biggest listener of Dr. John but ‘Ske-Dat-De-Dat… The Spirit of Satch‘ got me hooked from the very start. Dedicated to one of Dr. John’s main influences, Louis Armstrong, ‘Ske-Dat-De-Dat‘ is nothing but a joy to listen to from the second it starts to the second it ends. The opening track, ‘What A Wonderful World‘, is obviously one of Louis Armstrong’s signature tracks and it’s often…

Her new song ‘Just Once‘, is just as good and sticks to her smooth electro style. Info on a video to accompany it is still to come, so I wonder what style it will be in…

Consider one Charles Brown, a master bluesman in my mind.  While some others may be better known, few can say they were as good.Mr. Brown had a big mellow tone, and his piano work was top notch.  This album shows how influential he was.  You can hear the evolution of the blues in some of the songs that were covered by others.As always, love the music, support the music, buy the music.

    28 Aug 2014 | 9:15 am
    So if you haven’t heard yet, Martin Scorsese is making a bipoic about the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band on earth, The Ramones.  Although there is no news  on production or release dates, the possibilities alone excites us. 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…

    Woman’s Hour is a four-piece mellow electronic pop band based out of Kendal, London. Their new single, “In Stillness We Remain,” off of their debut album “Conversations,” musically soothes while confronting the unrest of a relationship. The song’s retro beat leans toward ’80s soul with tones that are reminiscent of XX and Warpaint. Lyrically, it asks the age old question: “Are you going to stay?” Lead vocalist Fiona Burgess’s lyrics offer bits of advice to her unsure lover,  “If I were you, I’d dance around the…

    7 Aug 2014 | 10:03 am
    GRMLN has released a cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” that will appear on his upcoming album. The cover has stripped the original ballad and shrouded it in heavy guitar and hallows vocals. It adds a new dimension to the 1983 hit by removing the pop-vibe and adding in GRMLN’s own vintage pop-punk sound, that when combined with the over-processed, garbled quality of production makes this piece differ greatly from the original. GRMLN is the brain-child of Yoodoo Park, a 21-year-old guitarist and vocalist who is set to release his second studio album, Soon Away, on  September…

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…

So why not just disappear when the next concert rolls around?“For most of us, the better we perform the more attention we receive. Yet for many ‘Invisibles’ – skilled professionals whose role is critical to whatever enterprise they’re a part of – it’s the opposite: the better they do their jobs the more they disappear.

    Cellist Maya Beiser wants to change the way people look at rock music. Or, more accurately, music in general. Raised in Israel, Beiser was groomed for a career as a concert soloist until she had an awakening of sorts at 15, when she heard Janis Joplin for the first time. "It blew my mind," Beiser says. "It was this revelation, that someone could be so raw and leave it all out there." Not long after, Beiser moved to the States where she embarked on a more unconventional career path, first as a founding member of the Bang on a Can All-Stars, then as a globetrotting soloist…

I was at The Lot LIC: a new outdoor venue on the corner of 43rd Street and Crescent Ave, which has been hosting bands every Saturday afternoon since August 2. A modest crowd lounged around an inground "pool" (actually an art installation) eating food from M. Wells and beer from Coney Island Brewing while Brooklyn…

    SoSoActive.com This is it, welcome to the finale. America, you had the chance to vote for either Candace Benson or Geoffrey Golden. Both gave some fantastic performances last Sunday but Golden had the edge over Benson with multiple performances at equal or great value compared to each preceding one. While Bishop Hezekiah Walker gave a performance to warm up crowd, I wondered if America voted correctly and put Golden to be the ‘Golden Boy’ of season 7 Sunday Best. Based on how social media commented on his performance, it’s a no-brainer he will undoubtedly walk away with “the all…

    SoSoActive.com If you thought Fancy couldn’t get any worse, you were wrong. The smash hit of the summer, Fancy by Iggy Azalea and Charlie XCX isn’t the best song to hit the radio in a long time, yet it still garners radio play like you wouldn’t believe. Iggy sounds more like a caricature of a real female MC rather than a real female MC. Like she’s forcing out her words to make it sound like she’s from New York or some other place from the eastern seaboard. To make matters worse, irrelevant rapper Lil’ Kim released a remix on SoundCloud. While Kim has been bumped off to make room…

    In what is a somewhat confusing statement, Billy Corgan said that it’s likely he will formally break up the Smashing Pumpkins following the release of their new albums in 2015. Making very clear reference to the fact that a large swath of the buying public has very little interest in the music the band has released over the past few years, Corgan said that following the new records, “I’m either going to bail on this ship for good, like ‘I’m done,’ or I’m going to have a new ship to sail on.”Corgan admitted that the overwhelming demand for the band was for their back catalog,…

We’ve already heard excellent new singles from Interpol from their new album “El Pintor”—“Anyway” and “Ancient Ways” sound more promising than anything the band has put out since their seminal “Turn On The Bright Lights.”On Tuesday the band shared “The Depths,” a bonus track from the album—and it’s also pretty strong. If this is what they’re throwing away from this session of recordings, we’re in for a treat with “El Pintor.” The record is out September 9 via…

This London/LA based quartet have accumulated the collective admiration of music lovers with their unique, Electronic Gospel, providing emotional, synth-heavy rides like “Your New Beloved,” and “Nova.” Approaching a remix of LOVELIFE has to be somewhat difficult, considering their moody vibes are the perfect match for their lyrical approach. However, a Brooklyn-based sibling duo…

Cause I want one." - Brian Christopher photos by Scott Lynch for Gothamist As you probably heard on the news, NYC EDM festival Electric Zoo, went down without a single reported overdose over the weekend. This may have been in part due to their major effort to educate people and stop drugs from getting in, and maybe.... thanks to the drug amnesty bins that were placed on premises. I wonder if anyone really dropped anything in to one of those. More pictures like the two above…

Luckily (for Kings of Leon fans), they did get to play, despite the fest almost pulling an Electric Zoo and shutting down due to rain on Sunday.

  • Ukulele Hangers - REVIEW

    Barry Maz
    23 Aug 2014 | 3:10 am
    Sometimes things come along which are just so simply brilliant that it is a joy for me to write about them. Such is the case with Ukulele Hangers.Hanging ukuleles (or, indeed, other instruments) is something a lot of people like to do. It keeps them off the floor, off stands that can be knocked over, and it also makes a music room look just great in my opinion. There are a range of yoke type hangers on the market, but I have never really been a fan. Most of them require some pretty heavy duty screwing or bolting to the wall for security and that is a hassle I don't really need. I would also…

    25 Aug 2014 | 9:49 pm
    Take Your Time In Love pulls influences from ’80s pop ballads and tells a narrative? I wish I would have heard this song when it first came out last week. Elsie weaves a tale of caution told through ultimate regret, that doesn’t come off sounding nearly as depressing as it could, given the subject matter. It must be those deep synths and bold studio polish that gives the song a slightly uplifting feeling. The lyrics are quite the opposite, though. Elsie put together a pretty emotional track with Take Your Time In Love. It fits nicely alongside the rest of her electro bass pop…

I mean, these are the same guys who made tropical pop jams like Zimbabwe and Regular Town. Those songs, along with everything else in their catalog, are amazing!

    A few weeks ago the Soundcloud random music discovery gods smiled on us, and shuffled Adam French  passed our ears. One play of ‘Ivory’ and we knew we’d found a special talent.  There is a delicious tension to this track, you hang on his every word and are swept up in his passionate vocal delivery. If you listen to this track and then watch the live performance from Reading & Leeds below, you can also see how this piano led studio track transforms to a swelling and euphoric guitar anthem. Adam French has won our hearts and is this week’s First Signs Of Love. …

    Remedies describe themselves as an experimental psych-pop band, and frankly we’re glad for the descriptor! on first listen we knew two things. Firstly this was very, very good and secondly we had no idea how to describe it. But it’s far too easy to get hung up on genres and filling music away into neat boxes, sometimes it’s fun to just forget all that stuff and enjoy the music. As you listen to Remedies you’ll hear influences as diverse as early REM, and dream pop bands like DIV and Wild Nothing. During ‘Violence’ you half expect to hear a sample from…

    Country Music History Country music evolved from traditional folk music. It is more than music, it is an attitude, a feel, a look, and it is an American art form, same as jazz or rock and roll. Country music represents tradition through musical pieces brought to America by english and african migrants. It became commercial in the roaring twenties of the last century when Okeh Records released a recording of fiddler John Carson called Little Log Cabin in the Lane. The company then began to search talent for the emerging hillbilly market, which was created in part by the widespread radio…
  • In Memoriam Charlie Haden

    13 Jul 2014 | 4:27 pm
    Sad news arrived us at the end of the last week: Charlie Haden, one of the greatest jazz bass players, has passed away at the age of 76.  Charlie Haden was born back in  1937 in Shenandoah, Iow, at a farm. At the age of 14, he began to play the bass. This instrument became his way of expressing his impressions, feelings and thoughts. In his music, you can still listen the folk and country music he listened to when growing up at his parents farm. But fortunately, he did not stick to only this kind of music, instead he developed an afection to classical music and, of course, to jazz music.

They have been part of the urban landscape since the first cities were founded, becoming popular in the 20th-century-cities, e. g. the belly organ players typical for Berlin, Germany. And they are still around. But what kind of music do street musicians play? Do they play jazz? Well, most likely they won’t. As to my personal observations, most of them are singers with a guitar. And they don’t perform jazz repertoire, they usually play Top Ten hits or…

    One of the easiest and most important ways to fight climate change and all its worrisome consequences is to change the crops system worldwide. It is time to stop over-exploiting the soils and water resources and start growing sustainable crops. Instead of massive deforestations without control and reforestation for cattle, farmers must take advantage of every inch of land and every drop of water, optimizing harvests and profits. Livestock can be fed with more kinds of foodstuff than grass. If instead of having extensive meadows where cattle graze freely we grow alfalfa there, we will get…

    This is only a short overview, which means we will mention some musicians and bands that perform in a certain style, but there are many more who are not listed. They will receive the attention they deserve in articles about the individual jazz styles. Lets start with what some people call a precursor of jazz: Ragtime. Ragtime is documented as such  since 1895, when Ben Harney published the first ragtime composition. In ragtime music African rhythms can be recognized. So syncopation became popular and established itself as an important component of the jazz music language and also found its…

I can remember in years past speaking with so many aspiring artists working hard in order to get the attention of record executives, and subsequently sign a recording contract.

Some still chase the record contract, but for many others technology has provided additional avenues into the music…

If we never sat down and discussed specific aspects about my education and career achievements, it is safe to assume you really have no clue. When I started learning music in high school, diversity was not a musical goal. To be honest, I did not know what I was going to do within the music industry. The view of my path did not become clear until my latter semesters of college. Once I started to take on various musical projects, I developed relationships with artists and industry execs across genre…

In the video below you'll hear the isolated bass, some drum leakage and Terry Kath's lead vocal, as well as a bonus of Kath's excellent guitar solo at the end. Here's what to listen for.1. Peter Cetera's bass is somewhat out of the pocket, especially on the intro of the song. He's usually a little ahead of the beat throughout the song, although there times when the bass and drums settle in pretty well…

          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…

Don’t let that make you think they’re any less powerful, though, as they can and do unleash some head-spinning serious riffage and growling vocal fury when they feel the need to. Another hard-touring band in the Exploding In Sound Records world, they’re already a household name around these parts, and leaving a trail of happy music fans…

Summer Camps Your children love to play outside during the summer, but they also like to create their own music and play some instruments. Look for summer camps that offer programs in music. These camps might be entirely based around music where children are working on their skills from the…

Bounding on to the stage to the sound of Eminem’s ‘My Name Is’ armed with bottles of Becks and a mischievous glint in his eye, frontman Mario Cuomo wasted no time whipping the committal crowd into a frenzy.

Fields is in top form and, as usual, The Expressions are a crack backing band that hits every high and low with prime efficiency. The group recently performed live at the KEXP studios, playing three tracks from the new record and ending with “Faithful Man,” the title track of their outstanding album from 2012. Excellent.

  • Big Wreck – That Song

    Alex Lupica
    1 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    When The Daily Soundtrack launched last summer, we did so in hopes of bringing a passion for music to our readers. We all love music. We crave finding more of it. We love it across genres, even if we each obviously have certain places we are most comfortable.  I believe, and certainly I know this to be true with my closest colleagues, that we all approach our own playlists in this way: it’s not about making sure we have the newest hits (or even hits at all… every group has its own shared soundtrack of tracks that seem obscure to others but are touchstones for that particular group).

    I think most of our readers remember Saturday morning cartoons, regardless of what incarnation they took. Often they were legitimately silly: I recall shows based off MC Hammer as a superhero, for example. I don’t remember all the exact shows I’d watch on which day, but I was a classic 80s kid in a lot of ways: plenty of Masters of the Universe, Thundercats and Silverhawks when I woke up early enough, later years featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, tuning into the half live-action Super Mario Super Show. These were the bricks of my childhood. I could sit here all night…

    Some time this afternoon, a number of my professors will be gathering to discuss a thesis I have written. My academic life is not quite in their hands, but it feels like it; I’ve put a lot of time into it, neglecting other obligations (you, dear readers, for example). Of course, I’ve also neglected IT. It’s my first large-scale piece of writing, clocking in at nearly 40 pages (believable if you read my entries here often). As such, many factors come up that one doesn’t expect. There’s cohesion, for example: one has to make sure different ideas make sense in the…

    When I was in 4th grade, my mom presented me with an ultimatum.  “Pick a musical instrument, you’re gonna learn how to play something.”  I suppose my disinterest in sports coupled with my interest in Super Nintendo had her worrying that I’d end up an after-school shut-in.  Whatever the case, I did not resist.  I wanted to play a musical instrument – the coolest musical instrument. Drums. The able percussionist; the rhythm-keeper; the sick drum solo guy; me. Not me.  Mom kiboshed my drumming ambition.  “Too noisy”.  I called an audible and went…

This is about my sister. Today is my sister Emily’s birthday. I have plenty of musical memories attached to my sister, because we grew up together and had similar musical influences/stories early on. We made “assorted” tapes together with the family, mixes culled from my parents’ extensive record collection. We grew up on Sesame Street, the Elephant Show, and Wee Sing. She was in chorus, I…

  • 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. John Mullane and Glen Nicholson…

The accompanying hard-hitting video considers the never-ending, unattainable portrayal of ‘the perfect woman’. With unavoidable advertising and mounting social pressure from both sexes. The band will be playing Proud Camden this August and have…

    Steven Fies
    1 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    How to use Parallel Compression for unparalleled results in your audio mixesParallel Compression is one of the oldest tricks in the book of mixing sound.  It is used when processing individual instruments, drum and vocal buses, and on entire audio mixes.  Many mastering engineers also use parallel compression in the final stage of mastering in order to maintain dynamics while tightening up a mix for commercial playback and volume standards. The concept is simple: instead of applying compression to 100% of an incoming signal, you first split the incoming signal into two tracks. …
  • Album Review: Mirel Wagner's "When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day"

    Hailing from Finland, Mirel Wagner offers listeners a glimpse into the cold, sparse world she’s created for her second album. “When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day” is almost entirely acoustic, with only two tracks having a light dusting of piano and strings. It’s entirely fitting; any additional instrumentation wouldn’t fit the spare tone of the album. “1 2 3 4” kicks off the album with eerie images of a (possibly) decaying body underneath the floor and Wagner making soft, gravelly proclamations about her big heart. It’s an excellent introduction to what’s about to…

Also of interesting note, it’s Al’s first album in a 32 year music career to hit number one on Billboard. How does it stack up to his other classic albums?And who gets ritualistically eviscerated in genius parody this time around?

    Self-described “singer/songwriter/creative type” Sarah Donner graced the stage at Tin Can Ale House this past weekend. The overall tone for the show was set at maximum quirk, partially by opening act Birdie Rae, Donner herself, and her stage partner, the robot from closer Satanic Puppeteer Orchestra. Donner’s set list was a mix of acoustic tunes with a broad range of subjects. She kicked off her performance with the jolly “Let Him Go”. Performing solo, Donner was obviously unable to recreate the pleasant harmonies from the original track, but cleverly substituted the kazoo solo…

  • The Sanford Strangler: A Shocking Florida Tale!

    Once upon a time, in the infamous Florida city called Sanford, there lived a young man named Harrison. A time existed when Harrison loved gangsta rap, especially 90’s gangsta rap. He requested the music all the time. Many people already know about George Zimmerman, a white Hispanic who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager. For awhile, Zimmerman wasn’t arrested. During the time civil rights leaders marched peacefully through Sanford, Harrison changed. He turned anti-rap. If you look at the second quote, you’ll see something about hip hop based around violence,…

  • 7 Reasons Stacey Dash Should Run for Republican President

    Stone Crazy
    29 May 2014 | 6:09 pm
    Actress Stacey Dash Recently, Actress Stacey Dash joined Fox news as a paid contributor. Looking at this, this inspires a list on why she should run for President on the Republican ticket. 1. She’s black (or at least part-black). Republicans have a hard time attracting people of color.  Having ex-Klan members like David Duke running on their ticket does them no favors.  Plus when the black guy became President, the slogan “Take Back Our Country” really pissed many people off.  All of sudden, it’s take our country back when the black guy wins. 2. She’s a woman.

Not so, of course.  Early success has a habit of plaguing even the most consistent songwriters with unfair comparisons.  Tracks like American Girl and Free Falling were such colossal hits that no matter how brilliant Tom…

    When an internet company, an app, or any new tech business becomes dominant, it is hard to imagine their decline. Seeing the new comScore report about smartphone platforms gives a sobering reality-check for any tech company. The chart shows Smartphone platforms are dominated by Android and Apple. Astonishingly, Microsoft and Blackberry are not even close — at least 40 percentage points lower. That is not competitive, that’s a joke. The story here is that continuous and smart innovation within the context of popular culture is mandatory for any tech company to keep marketshare. It…

    Never Enough Notes

  • The Orwells // The Black Heart, Camden // August 28th

    Dan Vaughan
    2 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    Punk and rock 'n' roll revivalists The Orwells' recent Camden gig at The Black Heart was a sweat and sweaty affair. Ah, Camden. There aren't too many places where you can catch a bit of punk these days, yet in Camden the whiff of rebellious, angsty youthfulness can be found in most back street watering holes. That's where (on a school night, no less) NEN encountered The Orwells, who played an intimate gig in The Black Heart. Catching them over a game of pool, it's good to see that several beers are a part of this band's warm up routine. The guys from Elmhurst, Illinois, revealed details of…

    The Coral have announced details of the release of a new album. Well, not completely brand-new - it was recorded by the band before they parted ways back in 2006 on a Tascam 8-track recorder but none of the 12 songs were ever released. 'The Curse Of Love will be released on the band's own label, Skeleton Key Records, on 20th October. The band shared the news of the upcoming release on Twitter last week. 'Wrapped In Blue' from the album was exclusively featured on BBC 6 Music by Portishead's Geoff Barrows - listen to it here (starts after 16 mins in). The Coral - from the Wirral - formed back…

The video sees Cate's tour diary capturing the mundane of being on the road, and backstage at her shows before proceedings take a turn for the spoofy and murderous. 'Duke' is one of Cate's less-understated works with some fab guitar hooks and those trademark organ notes. Click here to view the embedded video.

    Last week, some pretty dramatic stuff was going down in Camden and NEN heard the message loud and clear. Hot, sweaty and unable to keep still, being right at the front of one of the most live bands right now was where it's at. No corduroy, no bullsh*t. That driving drum beat, loud and grating riffs, hypnotic harmonies - it must have been The Courtesans, the first ladies of doom pop, headlining a bank holiday weekender at Proud Camden.

    Video submitted by Logan Turner. Submit your music here. About CYGNETS: Cygnets have been an indie rock/electronic band in Canada now for 5 years. They’ve made 15 videos, and released 3 albums and are about to release our first album on a label. They’ve always tried to make exciting music that fuses electronic sounds with modern indie rock all anchored by dramatic catchy vocal hooks. This has resulted in them frequently being compared to the 1980s. Which doesn’t bother them, though they don’t really associate ourselves with a particular scene or period of music.

    Ramshackle, Unhinged Cowpunk Legendary bluesman Robert Johnson apparently sold his soul to the devil at a crossroads in Mississippi to acquire his talent. Benjamin Booker needs his own mythos. What good is a bluesman without one? So, here’s what happened: Rough Trade Records mixed Chuck Berry with B.B. King in a big old pot of Gumbo (there may have been voodoo involved), threw in some pinches of  The Gun Club’s cowpunk and a generous portion of  1950s rock n roll energy. The ramshackle result is New Orleans based garage rock/blues wunderkind Benjamin Booker. The devious…

    Dear family, I greet you all with grace glory and hope, Grace is the experience I humbly share with you, Glory in the direction I would like to enlighten you in, and Hope in that forever the truth will stand strong.

We must learn to double-check on the familiar in order to be able to shed undeniable wisdom whenever we speak on a subject. research is crucial for our growth,…

We need to master ourselves first, and only then would we stand the chance of understanding something outside of ourselves. It is time for us to begin to realise more of our own being, most of…

The highlights of the new plugin include: Natural Phase mode to perfectly match the magnitude response of analog EQ’ing while also closely matching the analog phase response, without noticeable pre-ring…
