    I don’t know about you, but I have loved TheOnion.com and its hilarious fake news stories for many years. It’s not only a great source of humor; it also provides a valuable music marketing lesson we could all make good use of … A few years ago I heard an interview with some of The Onion‘s editors on NPR. They talked about the writing process and how they choose which funny fake news stories to run. The answer: It all boils down to the headline! At editorial meetings, each writer comes to the table with a list of possible story ideas. To introduce each idea, all they do…

    Tove Lo says a rock star is expected to act like a mess, sound like a mess & look like a mess. People don’t expect you to show up on time and be professional. But when you’re a pop star, you have to do all that, look perfect and be a role model. Pop stars like Taylor Swift spend hours putting on makeup before performing a show or even going to the gym. She is always anticipating a camera moment from either a fan or a paparazzi and she can never look a mess.

Lorn returns with a new full-length album, his debut on Ninja Tune, and it’s a huge stride forward since Nothing Else (released on Brainfeeder, June 2010). Listening back to his first album, Lorn says it now seems “cold and strict.” Ask The Dust, on the other hand, is “haunted, oily, smeared,” and with this description he captures something of the intensely felt, visceral aliveness of the music. If Lorn began his musical career as a poet of alienation, then Ask The Dust (named after the 1939 proto-Beat classic novel of the same…

    Fresh off of what could only be considered a legal victory in Florida, SiriusXM Satellite Radio made a decision to settle a lawsuit regarding royalties of pre-1972 music.  The company announced Friday that it was had reached a settlement on the issue and will pay $210 million.  SiriusXM gets to use pre-1972 recordings without any additional payment through the end of 2017, and can then negotiate with parties regarding use of the recordings through 2022. The suit originated from Flo and Eddie of the Turtles, which brought the case on behalf of themselves, and eventually sought and gained…

Fox News Headlines 24/7 will be staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a…
  • SiriusXM Scores Court Victory In Pre-1972 Recordings

    Spencer Osborne
    24 Jun 2015 | 12:33 pm
    The issue surrounding royalties for songs recorded before 1972 has not typically been a friendly one to SiriusXM.  The satellite radio provider has found itself on the losing side of an argument about the payment of royalties for music fitting into that category.  The issue arises because the royalty laws used to pay artists took effect in 1972, leaving a debated loophole of music that predates the law. Flo and Eddie, from the Turtles, and famous for the song Happy Together filed suit in California for unauthorized use of their material, and are working their way across several states with…

Judge Philip Gutierrez sided with Flo and Eddie on the matter, and seems to have agreed that the damages proposed, 100% of all revenues attributed to pre-1972 recordings are at play.  It is estimated that somewhere…

    Do call it a comeback. The hardware sequencer, once a forgotten relic of the computer age, has returned with a vengeance. And the reason is simple: we need it. Sure, we might play with a computer, but we’ve fallen for other synthesizers and drum machines – a lot of it quite cheap, too. We want hands-on control so we can play live again, improvise with our hands rather than furrow our brows over a mouse and screen. And we might even have beloved analog gear and want it to groove along with everything else. Few companies represent the blossoming of love for gear quite like Arturia.

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:52 am
    HitsDailyDouble is reporting that Apple Music's subscription numbers are in the 10 million arena after four weeks. That would be far higher than what I'd previously guessed. Apple doesn’t make its streaming numbers public but is showing reports to those rights holders, who have been surprised by how big those figures already are. Some streaming numbers (notably on a couple of cutting-edge hip-hop titles) are actually competitive with Spotify’s. Some rights holders feel Apple should publicize these figures; the decision to do so or not falls to Eddy Cue. But releasing the numbers would…

    This piece originally appeared on Mic.com. #Positive We all know her. Her face as been plastered on every gossip site imaginable. Her pictures, some more revealing than others, are very easy to find and yes her “twerk” videos are NSFW. Her name is Amber Rose, and she is “The Greatest Slut In The World”. If I actually listened to rumors and gossip maybe I would believe that. If I were someone who’s easily influenced the stories you tell would be gospel. If, being the most important word in those aforementioned sentences. Her ordeals remind me of every beautiful woman I’ve grown up…

    What the hell did Funk Master Flex do to get Treach of Naughty By Nature pissed off? Nobody knows for sure, but Treach sent out a tweet that made it clear – Flex will have issues in New Jersey! But, do you remember when Flex dissed Tupac? Could that be it? Or is it somehow related to the recent stuff with Meek Mill? UPDATE: It looks like this is the reason. Fatal from the Outlaws was down with Treach and Pac. Looks like there was no respect transmitted over the Hot 97 airwaves in honor of the rapper who died earlier this month.

Malik quit pop group One Direction in March, stating that he wishes to be "a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight". The singer has since been spotted working on solo material with Naughty Boy, however the pair fell out on Twitter earlier this month.

Jackson was in Brazil to celebrate his 87th birthday on Sunday (July 23), but instead spent the day in intensive care. The hospital confirmed to the Associated Press that Jackson is in their intensive care unit and is suffering from an irregular heartbeat. Jermaine Jackson has since tweeted updates about his father, saying: "Doctors say cardiac arrest followed a mini-stroke. Thankfully, brain scans show it's 'not as bad as first feared'."

  • The Pogues launching their own brand of Irish whiskey

    brooklynvegan
    28 Jul 2015 | 2:01 pm
    by Bill Pearis When you think of Irish legends The Pogues, you probably first think of their large, high-quality catalog of music. After that you might think of dental hygiene, and then maybe booze. Guinness or whiskey, probably. Now The Pogues maybe become even more synonymous with whiskey, as they're launching their own signature brand. The Spirits Business reports (via Dangerous Minds):The Pogues Irish Whiskey is targeted towards 25 to 35-year-old drinkers and is said to be Ireland's highest malt-containing blended Irish whiskey, with 50% grain and 50% single malt liquid. The whiskey,…
  • Titus Andronicus @ Shea Stadium (night 4 review)

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:39 pm
    by Andrew Sacher Titus at Shea (photo via doNYC) Titus Andronicus may continue to increase in popularity and ambition, but the spirit of their band seems to actually get closer to their punk/DIY roots. Their newest album is the hour-and-a-half, 29-song song rock opera The Most Lamentable Tragedy, but it's got the rawest production since their debut and some of these songs could've been on late '80s Epitaph or Lookout! releases without anyone raising an eyebrow. So it makes sense that they'd celebrate the album at a Brooklyn DIY venue that normally hosts bands who play places like that out of…

    Upon learning the horrifying news that “live reptiles are sawn open on farms that supply” French luxury brand Hermès (this according to a PETA press release on Tuesday), iconic model and singer Jane Birkin has publicly demanded that the Hermès Birkin bag, so named for her, be renamed — at least until better farming practices are put into place.

    Photo: by Chloe  As far as what’s cool in food right now, plant-based eating is pretty much the zeitgeist (when not eclipsed by the next big fried chicken sandwich). Everyone from Beyoncé to Mark Bittman has preached the benefits of eating a mostly vegan, heavily kale-infused diet. One of the main takeaways of veganism-of-the-now is that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. For every steadfast vegan out there, there’s a healthful eater who would do anything for a cheeseburger but has a sensibility for seitan. Just as often as carnivores are embracing plant-based meals,…

    Lawyers for the filmmakers suing Warner/Chappell over “Happy Birthday” have found some very important evidence. The filmmakers are making a documentary about the song, and have been arguing that the song should be in the public domain. The new evidence comes straight from Warner/Chappell’s own files, reports The Hollywood Reporter.  Lawyers found a blurry version of a songbook from 1927 with “Happy Birthday” lyrics. Suspiciously, Warner/Chappell only provided these documents three weeks ago, claiming they “mistakenly” omitted them. Lawyers then found…

Simplisitc lyics like, “I say one is the only one” might fall flat except singer/guitarist Leslie Sisson (formerly of Brooklyn’s Wooden Birds) twangs her voice just so, and the trio drives the echoey, fuzz guitar sound, that’s become somewhat ubiquitous, into a brighter production cloud.

Supposedly the song is the result of a long, bad breakup, and I’ll assume that no new suitors were allowed over for a while because this thing must’ve taken some time to make. While blocked and boxed like a clean digi-age version of the opening credits of some sexy ’60s spy flick, main Carnivore Greta Morgan (also touring guitarist for La Sera) sings the song while dressed in endless guises, personalities, wigs and even a Bob Dylan nick.

    An audible silence lingers in the field and fieldwork of ethnomusicology. Queer subjects and topics have made few appearances in the literature to date. Such paucity isn’t owed to an absence of LGBTQ-identified members and allies; by and large, ethnomusicologists are as fabulous and open-minded as scholars come. So why has queer ethnomusicology arrived late to the party? Queer theory has been around for over two decades. Some might even say that it’s already over, passé, dead. For ethnomusicologists to jump on the wagon now might seem akin to wandering into a club at last call, just as…

    Mohamed Sesay
    16 Jul 2015 | 3:30 am
    Seventy-five years ago folk singer Woody Guthrie penned the initial lyrics to “This Land Is Your Land,” considered by many to be the alternative national anthem. Sung in elementary schools, children’s summer camps, around campfires, at rallies, and during concert encores, “This Land Is Your Land” is the archetypal sing-along song, familiar to generations of Americans. But what most do not know is that Guthrie, the “Oklahoma Cowboy,” actually wrote the song in New York and that its production and dissemination were shaped by the city’s cultural institutions. Indeed, “This…

But although most of their long-term memory is heavily impaired, they may continue to relate astonishingly well to autobiographically relevant pieces of music.

    Fifty years ago, at the height of the British Invasion, The Yardbirds released “Heart Full of Soul” (28 May 1965) and The Kinks, “See My Friends” (30 July 1965). Both attempted to evoke something exotic, mysterious, and distinctly different from the flood of productions competing for consumer attention that summer. Drawing on Britain’s long fascination with “The Orient,” these recordings started sixties British pop down a path that proved both rewarding and problematic. The diversion had begun perhaps a year earlier when, on 29 July 1964, guitarist Davy Graham…

    Alex Ross
    28 Jul 2015 | 8:45 am
    In preparation for the Bard Summerscape presentation of The Wreckers — very much worth seeing, despite the opera's unevenness — I revisited the work of Ethel Smyth on recording: her chamber works, piano music, the Mass in D, and, of course, The Wreckers, which Conifer Classics recorded in 1994. She was, beyond everything else, a composer of impeccable technical skill, nowhere more so than in her String Quartet in E Minor (1902-12). It has a potent, unsettled slow movement and a finale enlivened by quirky whole-tone harmonies. Like many of her pieces, it deserves to heard much more…

I heard him only once in solo recital, at Carnegie in 2001: Janáček's 1.X.1905, Debussy's Estampes and Pour le piano, Chopin's F-minor Ballade and Preludes. I had the sense of being transported many decades back in time, to some small hall in a Central European town between the wars, where composer, performer, and audience all lived in the same world and spoke the same language. It was playing of the utmost naturalness, strewn with unstressed, seemingly off-the-cuff subtleties. I have heard Chopin executed more…

What it will take, in fact, is courage, the courage to declare the Honors solely devoted to the arts that define the Kennedy Center’s mission." See also: The Kennedy Center Honors Go Pop.

  • The Horrorist DJ Set and Live at the Bossa Nova Civic Club

    Oliver Chesler
    7 Jul 2015 | 7:50 am
    On Saturday night I DJed and performed a live show in Bushwick, Brooklyn at The Bossa Nova Civic Club. I’ve mentioned “Bossa” a few times. It’s a small place in the middle of what was once nowhere. The nowhere part is changing quickly as Bushwick has become the place to be. I would argue Bossa had a big role in making the area cool. The event was Synthicide which is run by DJ Andi. Synthicide is one of the best events in the NYC area. It’s a mix of EBM, Industrial and straight up techno. Each event features 3 different DJs or live acts. Saturday night Andi herself played, the…

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

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

      Returning to NYC screens this Wednesday for the first time in a long time is Bold As Love’s literary editor’s Bridgett M. Davis’ landmark feature film Naked Acts. Not enough can be said about the impact that Naked Acts had on a generation of Black and independent and female filmmakers with Davis putting together multilayered female characters full of humor, pathos, and (yes!) agency, as well as for her steadfast execution in getting the film out to the masses. Making cinematic history, in September 1998 Davis and her team premiered Naked Acts at the historic Thalia…

    From On the Struggle to Self-Promote by Kiini Ibura Salaam. Promoting your work relies on a willingness to be uncomfortable, and to put your small self in service of a larger vision for your work.   For artists who want to do more than make art in their room, artists who want artmaking to be a career and a way of life, self-promotion is a necessary act. It is also an irritant, a burden, and an exhausting merry-go-round. Some of us artists are blessed with gregarious personalities, with the instinct and the need to be seen, but there are just as many of us—if not more—who prefer to…

I now see why Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly sounded like a free jazz album: It’s thanks to this guy’s influence. And–on a slightly random, but still impressive note–think about this: Washington runs a dectet!  Who does that these days?  Well, depending on where you catch them, there can be a lot of people in Greg Tate and Jared Nickerson’s Burnt Sugar. Lots of wide-ranging sounds here. It’s another album, like Kendrick’s (again),…

  • Identical Suns: The Interview

    Peter Lee
    20 Jul 2015 | 10:47 am
    Last week, I reviewed the debut album by Identical Suns. But I found their songwriting and recording process so fascinating that I had some follow-up questions. Below is an interview I had with Rene Rodriguez and Todd Stanton, the core members of the power-pop group. 1. How did the recording process work? Todd: For the recording process, Rene would send me a demo, or me to him. We would tool around with it individually, sending it back and forth until we felt it was ready enough to record. Rene: Todd had a slew of demos and I basically picked through the ones I liked. A few of them…

    The Internet is an amazing thing. It's created pen pals, marriages, business dealings, debates and in the case of Identical Suns, a songwriting collaboration. Rene Rodriguez and Todd Stanton were acquaintances in the Mike Viola Facebook group. The two discovered that they both had a passion for songwriting and began writing, first via old-school technology - Stanton sent Rodriguez a phone recording of a song. Rodriguez wrote lyrics to it, recorded a new version, and emailed it back to Stanton, and the songwriting process was born. The result is an eponymous debut by the duo, who are the core…
  • Movie Review: Love & Mercy

    30 Jun 2015 | 2:27 pm
    Brian Wilson is the forgotten genius of the 1960s. His group, the Beach Boys, was constantly being compared to the Beatles, and some say that Sergeant Pepper drove him to madness as he tried to up the ante with his (until recently) unfinished magnum opus Smile. And his image has been tainted by Mike Love touring the country with a bastardized version of the group, wearing Hawaiian shirts and singing "Kokomo" and "Little Deuce Coupe" at county fairs. The truth is made known in Love & Mercy, the new biopic starring John Cusack and Paul Dano as Wilson. Unfortunately, not many people…
  • A Second Listen: ‘Up,’ R.E.M.

    Peter Lee
    20 Jun 2015 | 9:53 am
    I remember hearing "Airportman," the first track from the 1998 R.E.M. album Up, and thinking, That's it, they've lost it. Drummer Bill Berry had just quit the band, and they had steadfastly refused to replace him, opting to remain a trio and adding a session drummer when and if needed. From the sounds of "Airportman," a Brian-Eno type atmospheric opener, they seemed to be declaring their independence from percussion. I sped through the rest of the tracks, with only "At My Most Beautiful" catching my attention. An R.E.M. album disappointed me for the third time in a row, and that would end my…

    I'm excited to announce the future publication of "The Death and Life of Mal Evans," my first novel, due in July 2015. I've always been bothered that the Beatles broke up too soon. Granted, I didn't expect them to be the Rolling Stones, playing together for 50 years, but eight years wasn't enough. I had always asked myself, "What if? What if they had stayed together?" That's what "The Death and Life of Mal Evans" shows us. Former Beatle roadie Mal Evans lies in a Los Angeles apartment in January 1976, dying of a gunshot wound. His life has spiraled downward since his beloved band broke up in…

    Comedy writer Robert Alexander Kaseberg filed a lawsuit accusing Conan O'Brien of stealing his jokes. Kaseberg claims O’Brien used jokes taken from the writer’s Twitter feed and his personal blog. According to Mashable, the complaint filed in a California federal court, “targets TBS; Time Warner Inc.; Conaco, O'Brien's production company; Conan executive producer Jeff Ross; and Conan head writer Mike Sweeney.” The suit alleges that O’Brien used four jokes in his monologues without citation that Kaseberg previously published online.

  • 3 Ways to Answer Your Christian-Critical Friends

    Advice for meaningful conversations. Telling someone you're a Christian can kill a conversation. Many people react strongly to Christianity with a mix of fear and anger. I hate stirring up this reaction in people, especially when I suddenly become the personal embodiment of something another person hates and fears. To avoid this, I have found some things helpful in explaining myself as a Christian to those who do not share my faith in Christ or may even be hostile toward Christianity.

It took him four days to build the world’s most iconic balloon creation: the wiener dog. The massive latex dachshund includes 8,867 balloons and weighs about 180 pounds. And, really, it’s awesome.

Along with some updates about its new original programming, Netflix announced today that Aziz Ansari’s upcoming sitcom Master of None will drop on Nov. 6.

Tom Haverford fans have reason to be hopeful: One of the show’s executive producers is the co-creator of Parks Rec, Michael Schur.

         The ‘WOW’ factor, that all illusive state of accomplishment many try to achieve but few ever do. A state of being, mostly reserved for those unique enough to break constant barriers, put in place to test and push you. Creativity, something we possess, many times go by the wayside, unnoticed, until something ‘Out of The Ordinary’ takes place.. One that stood out for me recently is Hector “Papote” Jimenez and his group Los Hacheros. Papote a Salsa singer on the New York Salsa scene, sounds like an Old Soul Sonero from another lifetime.

I've spent some time reading Come Hell or High Water, a book about organizing collective communities so that they don't break down, and what to do if they do. As I'm working more within open source, it's dawned on me to learn from collectivist and activist projects outside of tech with loads of experiences in community management, collective decision making, and volunteer organizing. I don't want to claim that the things I will talk about here haven't been talked about before in tech, I just rarely see references to…

    Literally the only good use for Facebook at this point is to tell people not to use Facebook. I don't remember where I saw this line but it made me think of something that has been on my mind for some time. I stopped using Facebook almost a year ago. I didn't make a big deal out of it when I quit the service because I disabled my account, rather than deleting it - knowing that I might need it for future visa interviews (that excuse won't be necessary in a week hopefully, and then I'll probably permanently delete it). But by stopping the use of Facebook, I shut off an important communication…

    In this talk on incentives - Machiavelli's Mistake: Why Policies Designed for "Wicked Men" Fail - Samuel Bowles explains how incentivizing certain tasks, or fining certain activities, will decrease the moral reason for which people act. Bowles also talks about the Weightless Economy, in which standard economic practices no longer make any sense (because cost of reproduction is zero). This is at odds with the mindset that people should get paid for working on Free/Libre Open Source work. If we want Open Source to stay a labour of love (which it is for a lot of people), does injecting money…

    The September 25 release date of New Order’s upcoming album, Music Complete, is fast approaching, and in anticipation the band shared the first track this morning. It just so happens to be their first studio recording in a decade. (They’ve debuted other tracks from the album live.) It’s called “Restless,” which, given the context of 10 years without producing music, seems like an apt title for a track selected to break the silence. The song’s coasting melody pairs melancholy with rhythmic pep, evoking the title’s and lyrics’ frantic desire…

In this video, she happens to be at the same nightclub as Sam Smith who, as usual, wears an expression that screams “soulful,” and dances on his own. The video begins with an ominous shot of the…

    10 Jul 2015 | 8:19 am
    Released in 1987 as part of the Come On Pilgrim EP, this song is just it's own thing entirely. It drifts in unannounced and makes you listen. It's one of those songs that you don't realize the lyrics beyond, "I've been tired" exist until you read them.And when you read them... well, lets just say they pack a wallop.Here's a live performance of "I've Been Tired" from Dutch TV in 1988:And here's the lyrics:One two threeShe’s a real left winger ‘cause she been down southAnd held peasants in her armsShe said I could tell you a story that could make you cryWhat about you?I said Me tooI could…

I've always loved Modest Mouse, ever since my friend Linnea was in art school and I asked her who I should listen to, and she said, "I heard Modest Mouse is pretty cool."I picked up This is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About shortly thereafter.If you have thoughts about the song or video's meaning, I'd love to hear it.

    There is a tension in the modern dance accompanied with this performance that incredibly moved me. The song talks about an inner struggle to make/be something, and after ruminating for the day, I'm still not sure how it resolves. It's times like this where I try to remember Louis CK's interview with Conan O'Brien, and not distract myself. Just let life consume me for a minute. Thank you, Sia. I appreciate you immensely.As an added bonus, here is Sia's also incredible performance of "Chandelier":Indie Actuary is the place to find information about modern music and independent artists in the…

  • Single Serving: IYES – No Wonder

    Matthew Hickey
    28 Jul 2015 | 4:19 pm
    Before last week it’d been months since we’d heard any new music from IYES. Then, last week, they dropped the rainbow-hued “So Crazy” and casually mentioned that it was the first single from “a few EPs” they’d been working on. Well, it certainly hasn’t taken very long for them to hook us up with another taste. Today we get melodically euphoric, disco-like single “No Wonder.” If this is what we can come to expect from the album, then we can expect great things. I’m loving this.

    I somewhat get it. I mean kinda. It’s the world we live in… with so many options for hearing(and nowadays seeing) music it should stand to reason that there are as many charts for all those options. For those of you keeping score at home, a quick jaunt over to Billboard to look at their charts under the heading of R&B will bring back no less than 13 different charts. Out of those 13 over half(8 to be exact) are paired with Hip-Hop and/or Rap(Yeah I don’t know either re: The difference. I kid.) So let’s list them: Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay…

    26 Jul 2015 | 1:36 pm
    Charles McNeal mentioned a new rhythm game the other day, figured I would try it. It’s called “Got Rhythm” with the subtitle, can you keep the rhythm when the beat drops out?. Click here to play “Got Rhythm“ So you hear downbeats and tap either a keyboard or a phone on the downbeats. Then the audio drops out and you need to keep tapping with no sound. After a couple of tries, I got 849, I like how it breaks down how late/early it is. But at the same time I think it’s a little goofy you click but don’t hear a drum sound. Also saw the scores of a few…

The creator made it for a contest with a 48 hour time limit. http://fizzd.itch.io/a-dance-of-fire-and-ice It’s a different sort of concept. Two circles, one red and one blue, orbit around each other. You press one button on the keyboard to make a circle stop on the next square. If you miss the square by being late, you restart. You hear music that tells you what the tempo and the patterns of squares correspond to the music. The first level consists of a straight line of blocks. What ends up happening is that have an…

Sometimes people go over to the microphones to make speeches, announcements, etc. Usually that’s fine. I try to make sure my saxophone is out of the way so it won’t get bumped. You want to be aware of that possibility, especially if people somewhere are drinking. However, this time, there were a LOT of people where the band was playing. And then….

  • “What do I need to do to maintain the sax?”

    Neal
    8 Jul 2015 | 6:22 am
    What do I need to do to maintain the sax? -Sandy My response The most important things you can do to maintain your saxophone happen before and after you play it. And while you are playing your saxophone do not eat anything or drink anything besides water. Before playing saxophone you should have some time after you have eaten and you may want to brush your teeth before you play. Sugar and other things in food and drinks are not good for the pads on the saxophone and can cause problems. While you play, drink water. After you play your saxophone, I recommend swabbing the saxophone with a cloth…

That’s how I got hooked on Alvvays. The combination of a dreamy atmosphere and beach/surf feel grabbed me straight away. So when I heard they were playing at the Boileroom in Guildford, I was in! The thought of cold beer and some great feel-good music got me through Friday. I had been to the Boileroom a few times before in my Uni years, it’s an intimate venue with a great…

Have you heard of them? Will you be going? I think you should… and I’m always right. It’s the kind of track that would have fit in well on the soundtrack to Perks of Being A Wallflower or The Breakfast Club. A slightly outdated sound that seems to have come back around to be back in fashion. This new track is the latest to emerge from the London based 4 piece, following impressive…

That is the feeling I get when listening to ‘Ballet’, the new single from Samuel Ford. Ford intertwines immediate melodies and literate lyrics with intricate rhythms that soar from the darkest chasms to atmospheres of uplifting melancholy.

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

    26 Jun 2015 | 3:49 am
    By Rob Levy Not content to rest on its laurels, Opera Theatre St. Louis concludes its fortieth season with Emmeline, an intense slice of operatic Americana from Tobias Picker. One of the reasons Emmeline is such a fantastically powerful opera is that it is a tale taken from real events. Based on Judith Rossner‘s bestseller, the opera is set amidst the backdrop of a conservatively minded 19th century Maine, and focuses on Emmeline, a young woman sent to the mills to earn money for her family. However, the owner’s son-in-law, Mr. Maguire, takes advantage of her; pregnant and disgraced,…

    Never before has an English monarch been the subject of such an emotional and dazzling opera as with Richard the Lionheart. First performed in 1727, the opera was written by Handel (whose participation didn’t exactly hurt his social status in Britain), with a libretto by Paoli Antonio Rolli, which removed its 1191 historical setting in favor of a more modern setting as an appeasement to England’s new king, George II. This production, commissioned by Opera Theatre St. Louis, marks the American premiere of an opera that is a passionate love story, a tale of political intrigue and a lesson…

    One of my favorite all-time songs is Todd Rundgren’s “Want of a Nail,” because its lyrics tell the story of how the devil’s in the details. If you don’t focus, then everything, just everything, can fall apart. This is also a theme of one of my favorite Larry McMurtry novels, Lonesome Dove, and of course, countless other songs, stories and novels. It’s awfully difficult these days to keep track of details, and they are extra-important in our business. It’s becoming harder for everyone to make sure every detail is examined because we’re all bombarded with so much…

Harold and I became friends when he moved back to New Orleans in the early 1990s when he moved back from Los Angeles to teach in the Jazz Studies program at the University of New Orleans. I got to know him late in his life, but I treasure his memory and our talks.

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

    Among American adults who use audio players in the car, two-thirds first turn on the AM/FM radio when listening to music, reports Ipsos in a newly-released study, while roughly 1 in 7 (14%) tune in to Sirius XM and about 1 in 10 (11%) turn on their CD player.

Oslo Parks is a joint project of producers Rob Flynn and Ian Booth, who seem to have somehow found the formula for catchy, upbeat synthpop that gets on heavy rotation here at Walrus Towers.

The track is built around a pulsating, almost sinister bassline, with the opening few bars sounding like we are in for a subtle house groove. The vocals are beautifully haunting, and the song builds and builds throughout turning the dark into the light. Play Out will be released on Pond Life Songs on the 4th of September.

    How many times have you seen a car parked in the bike lane and wanted to either move it, or bash right into it, just because it’ll be their fault? Just me on the last one? Ok, then. Fortunately, this cyclist thought about the former.

    By Gemma Brosnan GIVEN the density of cultural riches on the tried-and-true paths of the Anatolian mainland, few foreigners venture out to Çesme, Izmir’s sun-kissed western peninsula. But that’s slowly starting to change. Named after the many springs found in the area during the 18th and 19th centuries, Çesme has long attracted local tourists seeking out the healing thermal waters of the surrounding Sifne Springs. When tourists discovered the haunts of the Bodrum Peninsula, the smart set migrated north and the region still manages to remain relatively untarnished, offering a…

    By Gemma Brosnan  NORWAY is universally known for two things – stunning wild beauty which leaves most visitors in awe and ferociously expensive prices which put most people off. For those willing to pay the price to catch the midnight sun, polar nights, northern lights, arctic tundras, grand mountain tops and colourful grass-roofed houses, it’s undeniably worth it. This is a land of contrasts, from the soft and gentle to the harsh and untamed. Tiny fertile villages spring out like luminous green pearls along the fjordline where indomitable fishing communities cling to rocky outcrops and…

The rest, of course, is history. With a strong discography and endless amount of hits, Ludacris has been a constant in the music industry. But that doesn’t mean nothing has changed…

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

    27 Jul 2015 | 9:23 pm
    Sounds from nowhere. Music whispering like the breeze. Lazer guided melodies. From time to time, our friend Agte. Mulder compiles a handful of select shoegaze, dream pop, and post rock songs. The result is the Lazer Guided Melodies podcast series, titled as an homage to the band Spiritualized’s 1992 album of the same name. If you speak Spanish, you’re in luck! Agte. Mulder records his podcasts entirely in Spanish, but if you’re unfamiliar with the language, don’t let that discourage you from listening and enjoying the music. The songs are still English (mostly).

It seems like forever ago when I first randomly came across SAFIA on Soundcloud and posted their most current track at the time – Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds.

From an album full of standout tracks, Skyscraper is one of the most introspective and we finally get treated to some visuals to go along with the song.

    It’s odd that this is my first post on Tribe Society, because I’ve been a fan of these guys since they kicked things off as another band that often graced the pages of The Record Stache a few years ago. They’ve come a long way from their sunny, indie pop roots, and are now packing a genre bending sound that ranges from dark atmospheres to epic anthems to grimy hip-hop inspired beats. It’s a winning combo! For their latest single off of the Lucid Dreams EP, Tribe Society managed to get some vocal support from the very excellent, Kiesza. She’s got quite an eclectic…

    Lynyrd SkynyrdMore than twenty years ago my career in print media began. After starting a music newsletter six months previously, I took advantage of an entry-level opportunity to work in the sales department of a music magazine. It was interesting for me because of my background working in various musical genres, but I was now thrust into an organization that primarily focused on alternative music. At the time I was not familiar with the musical style or the local scene. Nevertheless, I trudged forward into the belly of the South Florida alternative music scene, looking for advertisers. With…

    Jason DeruloMany times we find very interesting persons, stories or events very near our own domiciles. Such is the case for me here in South Florida, where many speak somewhat negatively about the local music scene. I have heard much about the lack of live music venues, or lack of opportunities for artists of one particular genre or another. Nevertheless, there are many stories of artists who have worked hard to become well known musical stars. There are even more interesting stories of musicians who perform for the love of the art, as well as a small appreciative audience. Although Weekly…

    I'm not so sure how useful this is, but Google has built a way for you to share your URL via an audio tone. It's called Google Tone and it will work with any computer using Chrome and the Google Tone extension.What happens is that if you click on the Tone icon, it sends out an audio tone that will be detected by other audio computers in the room, which would then switch their browsers to the same URL.Apparently the Google Research team worked pretty hard on this.

    There used to be a lot of companies that offered DIY kits for audio gear at one time, and many of us in the business were introduced to electronics that way (myself included). Alas, over the years these companies mostly fell by the wayside once gear became so inexpensive that it took much of the incentive away from building your own. Then there was the liability issue of someone potentially hurting themselves either in building or operating a kit that scared many companies away.It looks like a number of companies are now willing to get back into this market, and one of them is MOD Kit, a…

Singer and head honcho Ryan Davis is a sharp, astute lyricist, the kind of songwriter who probably gets tired of people asking him why he doesn't try his hand at short story writing.

    Melbourne duo Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons aka Good Morning have came to our attention with their new track, ‘You’. ‘You’ is the B-side to the their recently released single, ‘On The Street’ (available now on limited edition Cassette tape via Bandcamp) – and it makes for one hazy lo-fi affair. If you think Foxygen meets Happyness – Good Morning with their 90’s slacker-rock vibes in tow – sees their sound land somewhere in the middle of the two.

    The Cribs have announced details of two headline shows for later this year. The Wakefield trio will play Glasgow Barrowlands on October 20th, followed by a huge show at London’s Roundhouse on October 28. Discussing the London show, Bassist Gary Jarman says “It’s a huge personal thrill for the band to be playing at the Roundhouse.

    Philophobia was the first song, and possibly the last song to be fully realised as a band during rehearsal times back at High School. Every Tuesday evening was spent refining this track in particular, mainly because the lineup back in the school days gravitated particularly to this track. What’s perhaps more fascinating about this track is it was dealt more as a confession of fears between Luna and our drummer Alex. Ever since the Tuesday this song was introduced to the band as a whole in the form of lyrics and the entire bass line, both Luna and Alex admitted their attraction to one…

    This ‘Sweet Baboo’ article was written by Ben Hayward, a GIGsoup contributor Artists and critics alike agree that the most sought-after quality in a piece of work is honesty. If a work is an honest reflection of the artist it cannot fail to have integrity. The Boombox Ballads, the fifth album released by Welsh songsmith Stephen Black, better known as Sweet Baboo, is, if anything, too honest. The record exudes an air of blissful domesticity. Its confidence, idiosyncrasy and indeed its lyrics reveal a man who is not only at ease with his place in the world, but one who doesn’t…

It creates a pressure that many good musicians simply can’t deal with: Kurt Cobain’s suicide was, in part, driven by fans who constantly told him to play ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ when they had many other good songs. Tom Yorke of Radiohead called big songs ‘[an] Iron Lung’ – something that keeps you alive, but ultimately restricts you. This is where The…

This Brit's voice is so deep and smooth, and I've been listening to his song "London" on repeat. The young (he's only 26!) singer is greatly influenced by poets and writers, from William Blake to C.S. Lewis and his fantastical inspiration can be seen so clearly through his lyrics and arrangements.

    This latest game of Compare and Contrast may not be the most authentic, since the songs technically have different titles. But things are being lost, and those things are essential to being a human (being in control and of sane mind). But let's look at these anyway. Brett Eldredge's latest song is called "Lose My Mind." And there's the Missy Elliot classic "Lose Control." Do you have a preference? Nostalgic value winning out? Can't get behind the brief sampling of Gnarls Barkley in a country song? And let's get to my real question -- is this compare and contrast still valid even though the…

    When it comes to age, it is just a number to these artists. Even at 50-years-old, they all still know how to rock the mic. Slash – July 23 Courtesy of classicrock995.com Slash just turned 50 and has been in the spotlight since 1981. He is best known as the lead guitarist for the rock band Guns N’ Roses. His real name is Saul Hudson and he can sure rock on the guitar. But he is also known for being a cliché rock star and binging on booze and drugs. He has been sober since 2005, but still continues to rock the stage. DJ Jazzy Jeff – January 22 Courtesy of oldschool955.hellobeautiful.com…

Miley is always doing something insane in the spotlight and I am sure she will be even crazier than ever as host.

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

    Phoenix from the flames Tamaryn unveils the new video for "Cranekiss", the title track from her upcoming album out on August 28th through Mexican Summer.The song, "Cranekiss", itself is immediately catchy in a kind of melancholic downbeat disco way, but its after repeated listens that you truly understand its infectious nature. The video is kind of abstract photoshop effect heavy covering Tamaryn in blurry, spotty randomness.Grab a pre-order of Cranekiss on the Mexican Summer website and watch the video for the track below.
  • BOAT CULTURE 'HALF OLD' | INTRODUCING

    14 Jul 2015 | 12:13 pm
    Been meaning to post this for exactly twenty six days now and we've finally got around to it. Hat tip to DNNM on this one. Boat Culture are a Toronto four-piece compiling some of the most dreamy lo-fi indie we've heard since maybe 2009?, 2010? - dunno but "Half Old" is saweeeeet.We always bang on about positive feel good vibes and stuff that doesn't come with any pretense and is fucking believable, you know, shouldn't be that hard to find should it? - well it is. Boat Culture pack all those things into one melodic, jangle-pop package and "Half Old" is maybe the pick of the litter so far.
  • GIRLS NAMES 'A HUNGER ARTIST' | TRACKS

    Phill Walker
    14 Jul 2015 | 11:33 am
    With "A Hunger Artist", Belfast's Girls Names stay true on their path of self-preservation from all the toxic elements so prevalent in today's record industry. Arms Around A Vision is slowly but surely entering our sights and the album is set for release October 2nd through Tough Love.  Presumably named after a Franz Kafka short story, "A Hunger Artist" paints one of two stories, depending on how you look at things, but regardless of frontman Cathal Cully's thoughts which led to this song, we've been dealt a truly solid post-punk track yet again. It is almost impossible not to compare…

    There's nothing I like better than basic, care-free, positive vibed music with absolutely no pretense or ulterior motives. Cue, Day Wave and his/their debut EP Headcase.So far we've only posted "We Try But We Don't Fit In", a song so beautifully simplistic in it's ideals and delivery, and this is exactly the reason why Day Wave are so good. There's not always a need to over cook things or over produce them - of course sometime under-produced can be horrific but in the case of this Headcase EP. This Headcase is exactly how lo-fi indie should be done and every so often we're gifted with a gem…

    Berlin-based duo Evvol have reconvened and a new vitality is sparking as they share their new album ‘Eternalism’. It’s enchanting, captivating and something you simply cannot stop listening to, oh and they’re streaming it in full too. Evvol are two ladies of Irish and Australian origin making atmospheric darkwave and dealing in the seedy underbellies of desire and hallucinations.

    How to Sing Better

  • Can I Sing Or Am I Doomed To Be Forever Tone Deaf?

    Andy Barnes
    15 Jul 2015 | 5:20 am
    Can I Sing? This is a question that many budding young singers have most likely asked themselves over the years. For some people the answer may have been yes, for others, the answer may have been different. The interesting thing is that people who can naturally sing still have to work hard at it by either taking vocal lessons, practicing for hours and eventually getting out there and performing. In this article, I want to help you answer the “can I sing” questions and also give you some pointers around how to go about getting started if you want to give it a shot. There are also…

    Andy Barnes

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

  • The EDM Guide To Lollapalooza 2015

    Eric Brown
    28 Jul 2015 | 5:02 pm
    If you’re like most people, you think of Lollapalooza as predominantly a rock festival. After all, it was founded in 1991 as a vehicle for some of the hottest alternative rock bands of the day. Now, however, Lollapalooza is looking a lot different. Electronic music is making up an increasingly large percent of Lollapalooza’s lineup. Over just ten years, EDM went from being a niche at the festival with only a handful of EDM artists performing, to being the second largest genre at the festival. To see how EDM has changed Lollapalooza over time, and to get a guide to this…

  • NHL Offseason Review: Vancouver Canucks

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:57 pm
    Free Agency Moves The Vancouver Canucks have had no trouble make the Stanley Cup Playoffs in recent years. In fact, the Canucks have been seven out of the past nine years. However, while that statistic is all well and good, it’s the Stanley Cup trophy that Vancouver is still trying to track down. The Canucks entered the offseason looking to make some crucial decisions in terms of their roster, and perhaps they wound up making the right ones. Vancouver added a physical forward in Brandon Prust in a trade with Montreal, and it has to be considered a good deal considering how well Prust…

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:28 pm
    If there was ever an on again off again team in the NHL, at the moment the prize could certainly go to the Columbus Blue Jackets.  Just two seasons ago they were the surprise of the league, with a stellar regular season and a respectable run in the playoffs. As a result, expectations were high entering last season, but early on it was already apparent that those expectations would be short lived. With last season ending in disappointment, the fans in Columbus have been spending this offseason in eager anticipation of which direction the team would head in come October. To this point in the…
  • Bryce Harper: A Complete and Dynamic 5-Tool Player

    Corey Rubin
    28 Jul 2015 | 11:29 am
    If you’re a baseball fan, the name Bryce Harper is familiar to you. He’s the very young (22 years old right now) and incredibly talented former first pick overall in the draft just four years ago. The lucky team that selected him, the Washington Nationals, now has a superstar and team leader for at least the next ten years, probably longer than that. When Harper was selected by the Nationals four years ago he was a high school graduate considered to be a “lock” to succeed in Major League baseball. This 5-tool player (he hits for average and for power, excels defensively, has a strong…

    It’s July, and the festival season is in full swing. In the thick of summer, everyone is flitting between music events of all kinds; new or established, mainstream or underground, testing the vibes on the coast; dancing and day-drinking at inner city venues.

  • Film Review – Eden | Mia Hansen’s Tribute to 90’s French Touch Movement

    Andrei Sandu
    23 Jul 2015 | 9:20 am
    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden explores Parisian dance music culture through the rise and fall of the French Touch movement with great skill and minimal melodrama – an authentic depiction of a paradise lost. Delivering a performance that suits the film’s style perfectly, Félix de Givry plays Paul, a DJ inspired by the career of the director’s brother, Sven Hansen-Løve. His descent is saddening, but it is difficult not to get caught up in the exhilaration when he first deciphers the chords of Liquid’s Sweet Harmony. With a magnificent soundtrack which includes Frankie Knuckles, MK…
  • Interview with Sven Hansen-Løve, Co-writer and Inspiration for Eden

    Bizarre Culture
    22 Jul 2015 | 3:41 am
    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden is proving to be the dance music film of the year. It is an authentic yet melancholy exploration of Paris’s dance music culture in the 1990s and 2000s, following the French House, Deep House and Garage clubs in which her brother, Sven was immersed. Indeed, Sven Hansen-Løve, of the DJ duo Cheers, serves as the inspiration for the character of Paul in this semi-biographical film. We caught up with him at Soho House a few hours before a screening of Eden to learn more about his creative input, his views on Hollywood’s depiction of DJs and, of course,…

Just pop your email in the thang and they’ll send you a DL link.It’s a proper gimmick and one that certainly affects how people are gonna listen to the record, but you know what? It’s a pretty decent collection all the same. Free and at ease, the sort of thing that feels the product of some fun times in the studio, rather than those late nights…

    The SceneAussie psych-guru Kevin Parker is back with the latest offering from Tame Impala. This is a milestone record for the Imps, the transition now complete since ‘Lonerism’ (2012), Tame Impala no longer a ‘band’ and now a ‘project’. This is Parker’s thing, through and through. It always was, he was writing, playing and producing and controlling the whole thing from the start but now the illusion is gone.‘Currents’ is the third album from Tame Impala, following ‘Innerspeaker’ (2010) and ‘Lonerism’. Coming off the back of a major, super, hyper breakthrough record,…

    The SceneStatik Selektah has steady been pulling, mainly underground rappers from the East Coast together on six previous albums and Lucky 7 is the seventh of its kind. It is also apparently the last which is a bummer because I jumped on the wagon a bit late after I thoroughly enjoyed 'What Goes Around' and was eagerly anticipating Lucky 7. The concept here is basically Selektah offering some some classic hip hop production for some of the best wordsmiths to do their thing. To still look at what Selektah does as putting underground rappers on, doesn't really give him nor the rappers the…

    Nick Robinson
    19 Jul 2015 | 3:54 pm
    The SceneIf you ran a bracket for the best songwriter in the world at this moment, Jason Isbell would probably be a top seed. You want your life immortalised in a sad country ballad then this is your dude. But then he’s also pretty prominent with a folky story song or a rampaging rock and roller. Isbell plays a mean and understated guitar and sings in a smooth southern twang but it’s his way with words and a melody that really sets him above and beyond. He’s a graduate of Southern Rock Deities the Drive-By Truckers, booted out of that band for his boozing ways (though not before writing…

    Downtown Raleigh was the epicenter of an event that brought two titans of the  obscure together. Hosted by the Lincoln Theatre, the outdoor stage was the perfect setting as people gathered early to witness this unique event. The trio of J Mascis (vocals and guitar), Lou Barlow (vocals and bass), and Murph (drums) burst out of the late eighties with records that combined a blend punk and rock. While time has changed, these guys have not. Backed with a wall of amplifiers, Dinosaur Jr. [♫♫♫♫♫] was anything but shy and were over the top…

    If you’re unfamiliar with In This Moment, you may be spending too much time under a rock. Not only do they have one of the most notorious, theatrical live shows in the metal game, but they dropped the Black Widow album late last year and put on a killer set at Carolina Rebellion back in May. If you missed them at the festival, a more intimate venue, like The Ritz in Raleigh, is the perfect place to get the full effect of In This Moment. We knew nothing about First Decree [ before they took the stage at The Ritz, but we were pleasantly surprised by both their hustle on stage.

Some of the biggest and most influential bands on Warped Tour are greeted by a sea of fans at the main stages every year, and this was no different at the Shark stage.

    To follow up my recent summer preview, I attended Diane Birch’s first event as part of her summer residency at Joe’s Pub. Early on, I had a feeling that the evening’s show would be different than most of the happenings of the summer. It was both an impressive and relaxing night of comforting music. Diane Birch’s beauty and stunning talent was obvious to all who watched her. Every soul in the house was mesmerized. For those of you who have never been to Joe’s Pub, it really is something else. Since this was my first time at the venue, I suspected it was going to simply be a pub and…

Together the duo have recorded nine brand new songs and put them out on their debut album titled “Hermits On Holiday” which will be coming out August 21st on Birth Records. “Hermits On Holiday” has a somewhat simplistic gritty pop rock and occasionally blues based sound, but at the same time it has many experimental and unconventional nuances to it. It works to the album’s advantage because it takes experimental music and makes it more digestible for those who more…

    “Guster is the Bester!” – A Gusterrhoid saying Very few musicians tend to keep the same lasting talent in their work. In fact, often times when a band shifts their sound to explore, they are met with harsh criticism. Success is therefore difficult to follow. However, there is one band that has withstood the test of time and just keeps getting better over the years. That band is the ever-satisfying Guster. To my enjoyment, they returned to NYC for a special show at the Central Park SummerStage! As luck would have it, I was granted an invite to come and experience their…

I have always been fascinated by electronic sounds, thanks to my dad who had an extensive record collection of artists from the 70s. He had music from artists like Mike Oldfield and Synergy ‘Larry Fast’. I was completely fascinated by that kind of music, so I started working with electronic music around 1988, it was then I first began using multilayered textures. At that time we used tape and I produced a number of tracks with layers of electronic sounds and various…

    Day in the Life of a Commercial Musician

  • Music is Your Biggest Asset

    Michael Musco
    24 Jul 2015 | 1:54 pm
    If you are a musician, whether an entertainment musician or a commercial musician, your music is your biggest asset, and you need to protect it. In the business world you have two categories that most tangible or intangible items fall into and that is liabilities and assets. The difference between the two is fairly simple once you grasp that concept. A liability takes money from your pocket, and an asset puts money into your pocket.Personally, for me, I look at money a lot like points in a game. I make the comparison a lot to SimCity, which was one of my favorite computer games. In that game…

    If you spend much time reading my blog, you'll notice I dedicate a lot of ink to the business side of the music business. The reason I do is because it is one of the most important skills to learn. In today's world to be a musician you also have to think like a business man. If you take anything from that statement please take this. If you do not feel comfortable with sales, business, negotiations, marketing, promotion, ect; you have to hire someone that will take on that role.The reason being is that a lot of musicians have a belief that if the music is good it will sell itself, get popular…

    Recently, I was contacted by a guy in A&R from a major label, which will remain nameless. After talking for awhile I was given an offer which I had to decline. Now I have nothing against major labels, or indie labels for that matter. Also I have nothing against staying independent. For me it really just depends on what works best for your particular situation. I think it's very important for musicians to carefully consider their options before jumping on board and signing anything, because sometimes you can put roses on a shit deal, but it's still shit.I have been making commercial music…

    I get asked about promotion all the time, especially for commercial music. One of the misconceptions out there is that if you make it, and it's good, people will come. Unfortunately that is only part of the equation. It would be nice if it was as simple as that, but the reality is that once you make the music it is part of the job description to vigorously promote it, especially if your independent and doing it yourself.I've written in the past about commercial music promotion, marketing, selling techniques, advertising, maximizing conversion rates, ect. You can do a quick search for those…

    With the new advances in streaming technologies and volume normalization becoming standardized in a growing number of mediums, is the loudness war becoming redundant? I think it is, but if you put a majority of major label releases into your DAW, you will still notice the loudness war is alive and well and the dynamic ranges are getting crushed to a ridiculous level. I've been producing commercial music for a number of years now and I've grown pretty accustomed to the quality level that is pretty industry standard as far as the licensing and publishing world is concerned.A lot of time…

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

  • James Bond: Did Sam Smith Or Ellie Goulding Sing The Spectre Theme?

    Isaac Feldberg
    28 Jul 2015 | 8:59 am
    Speculation has run rampant with regard to the upcoming theme song for Spectre, which director Sam Mendes recently confirmed has been recorded and sounds “fantastic.” As is traditional for the James Bond franchise, the title tune has been shrouded in secrecy, leaving fans to scrutinize every possible contender for the gig. Adele recorded the Skyfall theme and won both an Oscar and a Grammy for the recording back in 2013, so whoever is lending their pipes to the next Bond movie certainly has big shoes to fill. Mendes has teased that we won’t have to “wait long”…
  • Knife Party’s New EP Gets Title And Approximate Release Date

    John Cameron
    27 Jul 2015 | 3:27 pm
    It’s hard not to love Knife Party, and the news of their upcoming EP has sent the EDM community into a frenzy in recent weeks. You might remember when they announced it last month, but only now have they revealed a title and date range for the release. Our new EP is titled “Trigger Warning”. It will be out in the next 6-8 weeks! — Knife Party (@knifepartyinc) July 24, 2015 While last year’s Abandon Ship featured an eclectic range of material for what the typically electro house-categorized outfit puts out, Trigger Warning may well expand the parameters further.
  • Find Your Zen With Ilan Bluestone’s Bonsai

    John Cameron
    27 Jul 2015 | 3:07 pm
    Ilan Bluestone has offered up a piece of trance euphoria with “Bonsai,” a contemplative track with a twinge of progressive house influence. Earlier in the year, Above & Beyond premiered it at their show at The Forum in Los Angeles to such staggering approval that they decided to release it through their Anjunabeats imprint. Opening with an echoey, vaguely eastern-sounding melody, “Bonsai” picks up steam with a drum pattern in triplets before opening up into a synth lead designed to set a sold-out stadium ablaze. The lack of vocals doesn’t detract from the…
  • Avicii Takes On Tomorrowland To Play… Trop House?

    John Cameron
    27 Jul 2015 | 2:38 pm
    Avicii used his set at Tomorrowland this weekend as a platform to debut new music – that much was to be expected. What we didn’t see coming, however, was that he’d gradually begin to adopt tropical house as his style of choice. Near the end of his set, Avicii premiered three IDs with the working titles “Some Nights,” “The Way It Should” and “Nothing To Lose,” and all of them had distinctly tropical elements. While a slide towards the genre could be traced back to his last couple of releases, it seems to be a bold statement for such a…
  • Disclosure And Sam Smith’s Omen Blows Latch Out Of The Water

    John Cameron
    27 Jul 2015 | 1:55 pm
    It’s hard to tell whether a highly anticipated release will be worth the hype surrounding it, but I’ll go on the record and declare that Disclosure have exceeded my expectations with “Omen.” The duo announcing that they would team up with UK superstar Sam Smith for the first time since their 2013 pop crossover mega-hit “Latch” turned so many heads that I had to write about it twice, but this song gets it right in so many ways that I’d be willing to cover a remix series or two as well just for more opportunities to sing its praises. In addition, the…

  • Enchanting new album from Evvol now streaming in full

    Aimee Davis
    25 Jul 2015 | 5:30 am
    Berlin-based duo Evvol have reconvened and a new vitality is sparking as they share their new album ‘Eternalism’. It’s enchanting, captivating and something you simply cannot stop listening to, oh and they’re streaming it in full too. Evvol are two ladies of Irish and Australian origin making atmospheric darkwave and dealing in the seedy underbellies of desire and hallucinations. This is their minimalist debut album which is bookended by the two most intriguing tracks they’re said to have ever written, ‘I See You (I Am You)’ and ‘Four Steps From Home’. Out…

    Today was a morning like any other - except that I didn't sleep last night and woke up at 4am. Not one to lay in bed, awake and unproductive, I got in some early work on a music project. At 5am, I took a break to check social media. My heart sank. One of the foremost film composers of our time, James Horner, died in a plane crash last night. Without mincing words to try and explain his influence, here are 5 pieces of music that inspired not only me, but millions of musicians around the world.Read more »

I have been convinced by Grohl and company that the perfect show does exist, and it was fucking awesome. Over the course of a profanity-laden three hour set (that broke curfew by quite a bit) King Dave, sitting atop his throne of flashing lights, guitars and speaker boxes, seemingly invited me and sixteen thousand other Torontonians into his world for deep cuts, Queen covers and Foos hits.

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

Their two hometown shows in Toronto (June 17 and June 19), at the Air Canada Centre were among the most highly anticipated shows of the tour and the band definitely delivered.   The setlist moved in reverse chronological…

I was excited for the show considering that it would be my first show at the amphitheatre of 2015 as it’s only open between May and September. Lana also had me excited, but I wasn’t overwhelmed with excitement because I’d seen her before and knew what to expect. She had Grimes open for her which, in my opinion, was absolutely terrible and didn’t seem like it belonged at a Lana concert. Courtneney Love is opening on a…
