County. Folk. Acoustic. Whatever. It's glorious. With every listen I feel like I'm eavesdropping on an intimate conversation between two friends, each time hearing a new titbit of their private lives! Or reading the pages of a diary as they lay their hearts bare. At times it feels like a conversation between two lovers, but obviously this is not the case.

    Throughout the history of cinema, there have been several director/actor or director/actress relationships.  Sometimes a filmmaker finds a comrade in the begrudging process of making a movie, and that partnership can last for decades.  Martin Scorsese has had two muses in the forms of Robert DeNiro and Leonardo DiCaprio.  George Lucas and Harrison Ford are cinematic soul mates.  Quentin Tarantino often works with the great Uma Thurman.  When it comes to Steven Spielberg, the right man for the job is almost always Tom Hanks.  The two have worked together on three previous films…

And when Colbert started to sing “We’ll Meet Again” with Stewart walking on midway through the first verse, I nearly lost it. But I don’t think anybody was…

    all photos by Brittany Brassell For all of those in attendance at the Crocodile on Saturday night, rest assured that you got see a show that will never, ever happen again. Tonight, we saw Columbia and RCA’s freshest flagship acts play a co-headlining date showing off records that are only crawling up the charts as we speak, and this will be the last time either of them play a venue of this size, let alone together. The night’s two offerings were paired in a perfectly complimentary nature. The 80s power pop magic of HAERTS, who KEXP has had nothing but good things to say about…
  • Live Video: ADHD at Iceland Airwaves

    16 Dec 2014 | 8:00 am
    photo by Jim Bennett (view set) The guys from ADHD keep busy with a multitude of projects, but that’s not to say they distract easily. In fact, since forming on a whim in 2008, this award-winning Icelandic super-group of sorts has produced five albums of expressive avant jazz. But still, bringing brothers Óskar and Ómar Guðjónsson (saxophone and guitar respectively), Davíð Þór Jónsson (organ and piano) and Magnús Trygvason Eliassen (percussion) together into one room to record with us has taken a few years, so what better place than the reverent space of the Free Church in…

  • djay Pro for Mac: A Serious DJ App with Spotify Integration, US$49

    Peter Kirn
    18 Dec 2014 | 8:55 am
    A full-featured DJ app can be yours for fifty bucks, and it can stream the songs you don’t have right off Spotify. djay Pro is here, and with it and a new generation of contenders come some serious shifts in digital DJing. Algoriddim have been making user-friendly DJ apps for a while. That started with a beginner-friendly Mac app, but extended to iOS and the until-recently-neglected Android platform (which is now at last fairly viable for mobile DJing). djay’s ease of use was already enough to make it appeal to casual DJs. Then, in May, Algoriddim pulled an ace out of their sleeve…
  • Finally, Your Pocket Gets a Perfect Drum Synth: Elastic Drums for iPhone

    Peter Kirn
    18 Dec 2014 | 4:09 am
    Some people are addicted to flinging birds at stacks of things until those stacks fall over. Or they use spare moments to flick through thumbnails of single people who they’ll never meet. Or they read random 140-character texts about stuff from angry folks, yelling at each other. Not you. You are addicted to drums. And not just any drums. You want electronic drums, drums you can tweak and dial – genuine synthesizers, grooving. Just playing back the sound of an 808 isn’t going to cut it. If you’re sandwiched in coach class, your knees pressed against the seat in front…
  • This Movie Clip Sums Up the SFX-Beatport Vision of the Future of Dance Music

    Peter Kirn
    17 Dec 2014 | 11:39 am
    Synergy. That’s the direction you can expect from Beatport and SFX Entertainment. And the speech above from the film In Good Company more or less fits. (The plot of that 2004 movie even includes an acquisition by a conglomerate.) Basically, SFX may have solved the problem of how to make money in the streaming business – by making its money elsewhere. Or, it seems that’s the plan. Here’s the problem: music streaming has razor-thin margins versus sales. The artists and labels eek out fairly small bits of change, generally. They can blame the streaming services, but with…
  • Jeff Mills on Audiences, Techno’s “Who Cares If You Listen”

    Peter Kirn
    16 Dec 2014 | 3:29 pm
    Techno legend Jeff Mills has a beautiful quote making the rounds on social media, responding to the question of audience. He’s still making music for them, he says – but doesn’t want to get pulled into simply giving them what he knows will work. Watch from about 8:30 for the video above, in its original context (a 2010 tugobot piece). It resonates for me with the Milton Babbitt’s “Who Cares if You Listen?” (That’s a title Babbitt claimed he never used; this is a tale so familiar to contemporary music that it has its own Wikipedia entry, for those of…

    The Lord of the Rings movies have come to a close, but that doesn’t mean the elf sonic action has to stop. Yes, there really is a sound sample library called Shevannai, The Voice of Elves. It’s 3.6 GB of nothing but elven samples, adapted to a Kontakt 5 instrument. From a technical standpoint, it shows what Kontakt can do. For any TV and film composer who suddenly gets a call from a client saying “elves!” (I’m not kidding; I’m sure that happens), it’s an emergency solution that will get you there under deadline. For the rest of us – well, we can…

    Once upon a time, LL Cool J and Canibus waged one of the most storied, epic beef in Hip-Hop history. Last night that beef came to an end in Brooklyn. The two men put their differences aside at the “Christmas in Brooklyn” concert with LL Cool J and Run DMC Friday night. The 17-year beef came to a close with the two men hugging it out and performed the LL Cool J hit “4,3,2,1.” From the stage, LL said, “Had a lot of beefs in my life but sometimes we gotta be bigger than that, sometimes you got to take things to the next level, sometimes we gotta flip the script.” “Yo, Canibus…I…

I though it was a great, wide-ranging conversation with at least two highlights: 1) Thes using an ancient Gemini mixer with built-in sampler to recreate the “Funky Lemonade (Remix)” loop. 2) Thes showing that you can pretty much chop up anything into a decent beat by using how he Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” The whole convo is worth listening to if you’re like me (a sample nerd).

One second is actually a decent amount of time to i.d. almost any song so I don’t imagine these are going to be that challenging for anybody but have some fun with it. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.

    You combed over CMJ’s picks for the best albums of 2014; you listened to the four-hours playlist of our favorite songs; you watched the most exciting and the most sublime videos of the year; you jammed to the remixes that made our office bounce for the past 12 months; and you saw the albums that topped the college and non-commercial radio charts. Not fully sated yet? Us either. So we asked a swath of industry folks and musicians alike to tell us what they loved in 2014 and to give us the scoop on the albums we can expect to make the best of 2015 lists. We noticed a bit of a pattern: the…

    Here’s an exciting thing. We’ve been waiting for rising Chicago artist Jean Deaux to drop her Soular System mixtape ever since we heard word of it back in 2013, but she’d been quiet for most of this year. Now, the first part of the two-part mixtape, Dark Matter[s], is available to download. The 11-track project wades through foggy-headed R&B (Equilibrium Rough Final), hard-to-reach pop nuggets (VOODOO) and faded, ambient rapping (A CROWS INTERLUDE).

Passenger, however, pulled it off almost smoothly and convincingly in 2012, mainly thanks to his major presence in Ed Sheeran’s North American Tour and the release of “All The Little Lights” by Nettwerk Music Group in the same region. Within the short summer of 2012, the single ‘Let Her Go’ started getting noticed by the public,…

If you’re interested in the set up I use to listen on, here it is.]     Like Rumours, which I recently wrote about, there’s not much that need be said about ‘Round About Midnight.

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

  • How to control Apple’s iTunes Radio with Sonos

    George Howard
    25 Sep 2013 | 6:11 am
    Apple recently introduced its version of a music streaming service. Given the market penetration Apple has via its devices, user adoption of iTunes Radio will be high. Apple is notoriously “closed” when it comes to its technology; they control their eco-system tightly. You can’t for instance watch movies you download from iTunes on an Amazon Kindle. The chances, therefore, of Apple allowing Sonos users to access iTunes Radio directly from the Sonos music services — in the way Sonos users can, for instance, access music from Concert Vault or Spotify — is slim. As…
  • Recipe for Cable Cutting: AppleTV, Netflix, and Aereo

    George Howard
    16 Sep 2013 | 7:09 pm
    I’ve been on the edge of severing ties with my cable subscription for a number of years. I hadn’t done it because while the AppleTV/iTunes/Netflix/Hulu combo provided me with more than I could ever want/watch in terms of programming, there was the occasional concern that there’d be some live TV programming that I wouldn’t want to miss. This concern was alleviated by Aereo, which grabs free over-the-air HD signals from the networks (and a few other stations), and allows you to watch live or record on your computer or mobile device. It works swmimmingly, and for…

  • Annie and girl culture

    VictoriaD
    20 Dec 2014 | 5:30 am
    The musical version of little orphan Annie – as distinct from her original, cartoon incarnation – was born a fully formed ten-year-old in 1977, and she quickly became an icon of girlhood. Since then, thousands of girls have performed songs like “Maybe” and “Tomorrow,” sometimes in service to a production of the musical, but more often in talent shows, music festivals, or pedagogical settings. The plucky orphan girl seems to combine just the right amount of softness and sass, and her musical language is beautifully suited to the female prepubescent voice. So what can Annie teach us…
  • 10 fun facts about sleigh bells

    VictoriaD
    18 Dec 2014 | 4:30 am
    The ringing sound of sleigh bells is all too familiar around this time of the year. It’s the official siren signaling in the winter season. While a well-known signature staple on sleighs, Santa suits and reindeer, jingle bells haven’t always been associated with Christmas. They do much more than just ring in holiday cheer. 1. Sleigh bells or jingles bells are a type of bell that produces a distinctive jingle sound. They are in the percussion family of instruments. 2. The bells are made from sheet metal bent into a spherical shape with a small ball bearing or short metal rod placed inside…

Oxford University Press publishes most of the carols the world knows and loves — the one that has just popped into your head is probably one of ours — with newly-composed Christmas titles added every year. Carol orders come in as early as August and keep rolling in until worryingly close to the big day itself. In 2014, our carols are being performed in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, South America, Australia, Scandinavia, Hong Kong, Germany, South Africa, and more. So far this year, we…
  • Five tips for music directors during the holiday season

    Raquel Fernandes
    18 Dec 2014 | 2:30 am
    Christmas is a time for music, and music directors’ calendars typically fill up in December. In academic circles, there are Christmas pageants, holiday musicals, end-of-term recitals, and Christmas music concerts. On the professional scene, performers take advantage of both the celebratory and melancholy sides of the season to present concerts, charity events, and special performances (full-length or one-off). Shows running on and Off-Broadway, and in regional and community theaters tack on additional performances; theaters and producers mount shows geared especially for children and family…
  • The Lerner Letters: Part 2 – Lerner and Loewe

    Raquel Fernandes

    This is the second of a three-part series from Dominic McHugh on the correspondence of Alan Jay Lerner. Read the previous letters to Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. The next installment will appear on Tuesday, 23 December 2014. Amongst the many famous people Lerner corresponded with, Frederick Loewe is naturally the most important in terms of musical collaborators. Yet sadly, correspondence between Lerner and Loewe is quite rare. I found only a few letters between them during the course of the research for the book, and was particularly disappointed by the lack of letters from their early…

    Alex Ross: The Rest Is Noise

  • Kozinn turns out the lights

    Alex Ross
    20 Dec 2014 | 10:01 am
    Like many of my colleagues, I am unhappy to hear that Allan Kozinn, a hugely knowledgeable observer and chronicler of the New York music scene, has been laid off from the New York Times. He had been writing for the paper since the 1970s and became a staff critic in 1991. Will Robin has a compilation of classic Kozinn stories. In the past couple of years, Allan was inexplicably relegated to covering the felonious escapades of pop stars; let's hope that at other publications he will return to the classical beat he knows so well. I can do no better than to quote Jeremy Eichler: "Superb…

For VOTIIV Cam has teamed up with Kat Duma on vocals. I selected the song Bad Memory to remix. My method of remixing music is a little different than the way most producers go about things.

You know, those songs that just hurt your heart in kind of a surprising way? Mo Kenney's "I Faked It" is more about the indifference of using a person who clearly is in love with you.

    1) Indie Music by the Numbers First, Jack Conte published a detailed Pomplamoose 2014 Tour Profits report on Medium.com in late November. He was exceedingly transparent in laying out the band’s exact income and expenses, revealing that they lost nearly $12,000 USD on a 28-day tour. Then came the backlash. From many sources: Andy Cush on Gawker, Spencer Lee on Medium, Santos Montano on Pitchfork, Bob Lefsetz, and more. They accused the band of reckless spending and Conte of using it as a veiled promotion for Patreon. So much for giving people a peek behind the curtain. 2) Amanda Palmer…

    PSY’s hit from 2012 recently went on to surpass 2,147,483,647 views. Anyone with a good knowledge of binary will recognise that number to be the maximum limit of a 32-bit integer. Way back in 2005, YouTube’s counter system was built using a 32-bit integer, with the reasonable thinking that no video would reach this limit. YouTube has this to say: “We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY. “Gangnam Style” has been viewed so many times we had to upgrade to a 64-bit…

With those words, she might just have summarized the pattern of her existence in India’s independent music ecosystem (and beyond). Over the last two years, she has established herself as a restless collaborator – a personality type that couldn’t be more far removed from the stereotype of the introverted…

    Angry about the fact that a cop can kill a black kid and get away with it? Here’s something productive to do: Withhold your dollars tomorrow on #BlackFriday and Monday’s #CyberMonday.   As you know, these this is the weekend that retailers make their money for the year, i.e., they get into the black.  According to Nielsen, black spending power is expected to reach $1.3 TRILLION by 2017.  That’s power. You can make the decision to use or withhold that power.  It won’t bring Michael Brown back, but it’s a good start to making our voices heard in a country…

The Central Park jogger rape trial convicted five young Black and Latino men, who many correctly thought were totally innocent, and multiple racially involved homicides of Black men and women occurred, along with an increase in despondency by the drug problem and subpar economics affecting everyone, but primarily urban youth. It was no surprise why so many people wanted to escape the city. But you cannot…

Little White Lie, which has played internationally, made its New York City…

The title of Anderson’s CD is not hyperbole. His story, starkly presented in the accompanying book of the same title, is one of surviving a brutal attack that included severe sexual abuse. Despite the scars, he does not dwell on the past but lofts hallelujahs, in a handsome, elastic baritone voice, for surviving, and focuses on moving forward in…

    Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" and Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" will probably be close to the top of the year-end Top 40 charts; together the singles have sold more than 6.5 million copies, according to Wikipedia, and that number will only get higher every time a teen or tween downloads another mp3 of the songs. A Top 40 song must be pretty popular to get my attention, and these two have done so for two reasons: They're everywhere; you can't get away from them, whether you listen to the radio or watch television or YouTube. I have to qualify this - parts of the songs are downright…
  • A Second Listen: ‘High Dive,’ Maria McKee

    5 Dec 2014 | 10:49 am
    My all-time favorite album is Maria McKee's Life Is Sweet.  Bold and cutting with an overdramatic, almost manic flair, this CD brought to mind David Bowie's music during his Ziggy Stardust phase. It was a complete departure from her alt-country sound, and it also marked the end of her relationship with Geffen Records. I waited impatiently for Life is Sweet's follow-up. When High Dive was finally released in 2003 (seven years - seven years later!), I was still expecting Life Is Sweet 2, not realizing that McKee's musical direction may have changed.

The band announced their more mainstream sound with the title of the first track, "Pop Song '89." "Hello, how are you, I know you I knew you. I think I can remember your name" - clearly not the deepest lyrics, but lead singer Michael…

But without her collaborator, the amazingly talented Jon Brion, her songs lacked the power, quirkiness and melody that was so apparent in her first three albums. She showed some signs of breaking through that slump in 2012's Charmer, but it's taken a songwriting and performing partnership with punk/indie rocker Ted Leo to awaken her. Leo opened for Mann during her 2012 tour in support of Charmer, and the two decided to write some…

    Mamiboys, an International performing indie band on the M-Boyz Recordz label, has recorded a new single, which by all intent is a jab on Taylor Swift's music career and personal love life. Although the indie band does not explicitly mention Taylor Swift by name, there are insinuations in the Mamiboys' 'Not Another Breakup Sh*t' that cannot be ignored, according to the band.

    4 Nov 2014 | 4:00 pm
    Those of you who are regular TCH readers know of CJ Hendry already. She is the extraordinary pen-and-ink artist whose work we fell in love with and then introduced to the public, first through Instagram and then at our Art Hunter temporary art experience in Sydney that we hosted with Jaguar.   The success of her work has been absolutely phenomenal, and for a good reason. Nothing compares to the mesmerising result of her painstaking work. Each image appears to be an enlargement of a black-and-white photograph, except that it isn’t. It is a one-of-a-kind, hand-drawn piece of art.

    1. How did the Harmaleighs come to fruition? We met through a mutual friend at school. We first started playing music together in the winter of 2012 with a six-piece group. We ended up stripping it down to just a few of us, which turned into The Harmaleighs. 2. Tell me about the name. Haley+Kaylee+Harmony= Harmaleighs 3. Tell me about your writing process. Where do you get your inspiration? Haley: I get my inspiration through my own experiences. And when those aren’t exciting enough (ha!) I listen to music and get inspired.

I’m not much of a baker and I usually crave a giant bowl of queso over anything sweet. But this time of year brings out my sweet tooth and the urge to experiment in the kitchen.

    The holiday season always gets me in the mood to cook. I saw an ad in my Cooking Light magazine featuring the cutest potato wedges with assorted toppings and I had to give them a try. I used my mandolin to get exact sizes so that the potatoes cooked evenly. It was super easy and fun to think of different toppings…the skies the limit! When I think of potato appetizers I  automatically think of traditional potato skins with cheddar cheese and bacon bits. These felt a lot lighter and packed way more flavor than the traditional recipe. So get creative and make this tasty recipe for your…

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…

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:02 pm
    It's not too late to turn the tide on one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time. The current situation faced by Syrians and Iraqis displaced by war is perhaps the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. Over 3 million Syrians have been forced to seek refuge in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and other countries. Another 6.5 million Syrians remain in Syria, but have been displaced from their homes—people literally fleeing for their lives in an active war zone. Nearly half of Syria’s entire population has been displaced by the war. That's only the beginning.

    JavaScript is going through some rough times. None of this is surprising. Until a couple of years ago, JS was a language most front-end designers were forced to use because it was all there was. Luckily libraries like jQuery kept us all sane. Then Node.JS came along and suddenly the language was a real tool that people could use to do an amazing amount of things with. Suddenly you could package manage JavaScript! That's revolutionary for a language. JavaScript is also immensely popular. It's an easy first programming language to learn for a lot of people because getting something up and…

    When we're in other countries and meeting new people my partner - who is American - is regularly jokingly recommended to introduce herself as Canadian by the person she's meeting for the first time. Being American is often mocked in other countries. People are astounded by American politics, American media, and American culture. They will gladly point these things out to any Americans they happen to meet. This mocking doesn't stop within America. In US left wing conversations shame of your country's policies is a recurring theme1, and when you're asked - outside of the US - whether you're…

Two years ago a friend tweeted this article from the Mr. Money Mustache backlog. The author preaches a gospel that struck me as true - if you're privileged, and you're in a lucky position to have a steady income, and you can be comfortable in that knowledge, than through frugality, research, and understanding, you can reach financial independence fairly easily. When that happens, you can focus on the things that you think are really important. The overall…

There are not enough active users for serious recommendations from other people I know. My feed is largely made up of people accepting friend requests and one or two prolific readers listing what they want to read and what they have read. I'm not a huge fan of crowd-sourced reviews, with the end result that every book has a 3.8 average rating. I would prefer reviews from a few critical reviewers who do this for a living, or…

Please consider these six songs as an early Christmas gift.” So mote it be. Madonna’s follow-up to 2012’s MDNA is Rebel Heart, scheduled for a March 10 release.

    19 Dec 2014 | 11:52 am
    We’re at Peak Holiday Season, folks, and while the music doesn’t directly reflect that — well, one track kind of does — this week, with a new Kendrick Lamar cut, we’re busting through the fuzz and getting to what’s important. With the rest, though, we’re actually creating layers and layers of fuzz so that we can step back from the insanity that usually overcomes the last few weeks of the year. Kendrick Lamar — “Untitled” Kendrick appeared on one of the final episodes of The Colbert Report this week, and he brought this untitled track with…
  • Azealia Banks Is Right About Iggy Azalea and, More Importantly, Race in America

    Tom Hawking
    19 Dec 2014 | 10:45 am
    There’s a point during the lengthy interview that Azealia Banks gave Hot 97 yesterday where she laments how what she says will probably be received: “I talk about so many things on my Twitter; [the media] pick and choose what they want to hear. Get your fucking clicks. Here it is! Here it is.” Which, of course is exactly what’s happened: sites like Gawker have pulled out the juiciest quotes, which largely concern Iggy Azalea and T.I., and in isolation serve to perpetuate the narrative of Azealia-Banks-as-the-crazy-girl-who-starts-fights-with-everyone. But watch the…

  • Best of 2014: 5 Cloud Nothings - Here and Nowhere Else

    18 Dec 2014 | 12:22 pm
    5 Cloud Nothings Here and Nowhere ElseHometown: Cleveland, OHStandout Tracks: Just See Fear, Now Hear In"Shake your butts! Not too hard." While that is Pixies reference (FORESHADOWING!!!), the same could be said for this release from Cloud Nothings. They have a rambling, energetic punk feel to them. They remind me a little of a band I really liked last year called Japandroids. While Japandroids ended up being a bit of a let down live (they chose energy over execution), I'm wondering if these hard-working Cleveland-ers would show up and kill it. I sure hope so. Here's the…

Their latest single “Limbo” is set with a highly textured, slowly percolating ambiance that builds along a bright, bouncing bass riff and deep, gradually unfurling percussion. It’s lush and thoughtfully arranged; a warm and simmering treat for a cold Winter day. We found a handful of extra copies of our previously sold out Pairings Box debut single for their track “Asleep/Awake.” We’ve made them available with our Curated Coffee & Vinyl…

The consistency of ‘a day’ meaning ‘everyday’ is more important than the amount of time. If you could practice a little more, like 30-45 minutes, that could be better. But if you cannot, then everyday at 15 minutes each day is better than an hour twice a week.

    Photography by Maren Farra www.marenfarra.com I was invited along to the Hudson Taylor Guitar Masterclass at the modern Aloft London Excel hotel recently thanks to Vs World. It was a great evening of music, laughter, music history, guitar playing and the odd bit of eating and drinking too! We learnt a lot and found out more about the duo of Irish brothers, Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor who are definitely on their way up in the music world. Their debut album comes out February next year and I think you will be hearing much more from them in the near future. Read the full article that I wrote…

    Photos and Review by Clare Knight 11/11/14 Bush Hall, London The UK is seeing a resurgence in the popularity in country music and it’s a new breed of music, no imitation of USA counterparts will be seen here. With Whispering Bob Harris being a prominent figure in the country music scene, we have seen shows like Country 2 Country at the O2 Arena along with easily accessible country music through BBC Radio 2. At the forefront of this flow of great country acts is The Shires, a British duo made of singer/songwriters Crissie Rhodes and Ben Earle. We headed to a sold out show at Bush Hall in…

Surely at Camden’s iconic music venue KOKO, as it was time for a night of beautifully crafted rock music by the likes of newcomer Southern and welsh band Catfish And The Bottlemen, on this cold November evening. The place was sold out – always an indicator for an unforgettable night. As the doors opened and the crowd started spilling in, one could surely feel the excitement. The DJ got the place hyped by playing evergreen bangers that had everyone singing.

    As I drive around New Orleans, I’m constantly amazed by the amount of construction that’s going on and how the city is looking better and better. But then I read the news and see articles like this one (“Saying goodbye to the University of New Orleans”). I’m glad that this article pointed out all the problems that UNO is facing. I’m a proud alumna of UNO, and I cannot emphasize enough how good an education I received at the University. Not only were my studies and faculty of superior quality, but I personally experienced a profound caring for my welfare by the university and…

Filter out unwanted (or not urgent) stuff in your consciousness so that you can attend to it later when you have more time? And then forgot about it? Well, I have. I’ve always considered myself to have a pretty normal attention span (whatever that is), but with the onslaught of all the information, entertainment, music, news, videos, photos, social media, phone calls, visitors, actual work that needs to be done…I don’t know how much busier my brain can be.

    Here’s a heads-up for readers under the age of 30: once you hit 25, you’re not really going to change much—in your mind. You’ll learn more (hopefully), which is the benefit of age, but your personality and habits are pretty much set by the time you reach 30. And you never really get any older in your mind. Your body doesn’t do what it did when you were 21, or 25 or 30, but your mind still thinks it’s 30. All this stuff is more interesting than you might surmise… This fact struck me when I was being interviewed about all the artwork and memorabilia that we have in the OffBeat…

    The Treme Creole Gumbo Festival is this weekend in Armstrong Park. It’s one of my favorite small festivals that’s organized and presented by the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation: the music and food are great (naturally), and it’s always held in what I feel could be the best place in the city for a small festival, Armstrong Park. Readers of Mojo Mouth will know that I’ve been cheerleading for increased Armstrong Park use (as well as for a music museum) for decades. Over the past few years, Armstrong Park has been cleaned up, renovated and is, frankly, a delightful and central…

    The latest Song Stuff by Cary Ginell! Getting tired of the same old Christmas songs year after year? Aside from the old public domain warhorses like “Jingle Bells,” “Silent Night,” and “Deck the Hall,” my tolerance for contemporary time-worn classics like “White Christmas,” “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” and “Winter Wonderland” is also running thin. So to stay sane, I dip into my collection of Christmas songs that few people know about, but are certainly worthy of being played alongside their more celebrated brethren.

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

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

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

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

    Elliott Smith is one of those artists that never really goes away. He slips into your playlist from time to time and today is no exception. Because 4th of July. It’s Independence Day. Couldn’t help but share one of the songs that made me fall in love with his music. Don’t think it’s about 4th of July itself, but hey, it’s called “Independence Day” so it’s worth sharing (though, you could also argue that Elliott Smith songs are ALWAYS worth sharing, and you’d also be right).

  • Why a choir can never be truly democratic

    15 Dec 2014 | 2:00 am
    Ever asked your choir members how they think things are going? Is there a large committee helping to run your choir? If so, you’ve realised that a choir is not a democracy!A choir is more like a benign dictatorship. Here’s why democratic choirs don’t work.getting feedback from choir membersMany choirs send out an annual questionnaire to their members to get feedback on how things are going. Is the repertoire to their taste? Are there too many or too few performances? Can the weekly sessions be improved in any way?If you’ve ever conducted one of these surveys you’ll realise that…

  • Astro Zu – Ghost Town (ft. Pin Tweaks)

    Tim
    18 Dec 2014 | 9:20 am
    Pin Tweaks debut track Girl On The Wire made quite the impact earlier this year, and became one of our most played tunes on 22tracks playlist. Now Johnny and Aman are back, featured on a beautiful, mellow jam from Astro Zu in the form of Ghost Town. It’s a little different to Twin Peaks own distorted electro-pop sound, with Astro Zu’s clean and tight production, but it’s an understated, pulsating delight. Ghost Town is on sale now at Bandcamp. Astro Zu – Ghost Town (ft. Pin Tweaks) was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

The film celebrates the alternative scene of Southern California – the skateboarding, the tattoos, the booze and the fuck you attitude of rebellion. It’s a scene that has defined the area in popular culture for decades and has personified the innovation and independent spirit of the father of old-school tattooing, Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins.

So, here’s another collection of some of my favourites from recent weeks. First up we’ve got Atticus‘ take on Gengahr‘s fantastic Bathed In Light, giving the laid-back track a dancefloor rework, with vocals there keeping the calm as the beat beneath drives track in a different direction.

The track is a slice of pure unadulterated joy with the gorgeous vocals from Elizabeth Wight an added blessing. The Past We Leave Behind is the debut single from an album with the same name, which will be released on 13 April on 2MR (Two Mikes Records), a collaboration between Simonetti and Captured Tracks founder Mike Sniper.

    Over the past seven years, the Park Avenue Armory has hosted an impressive series of musical events and art installations. But, none of these presentations has sought to merge the worlds of art and music until Douglas Gordon's current installation, tears become... streams become..., which runs at the Armory through January 4. Gordon floods the cavernous Wade Thompson Drill Hall with water, and places in the center two pianos. One is an vintage player piano which plays throughout the day. The other is a Steinway grand, which is played each night by celebrated concert…

    "The rules are only good if they admit exceptions." - Hans Sachs, Die Meistersinger, Act III Over the course of the 6+ hours of Otto Schenk's monumental production of Richard Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg - which I saw Wednesday night at the Met for the fourth time, and the first time in seven years - there are many, many extraordinary moments. (Perhaps too many.) But, the one moment which will forever be burned in my memory comes at the beginning of the opera's final scene: the St. John's Day festival and its climactic song contest. After…

    A holiday tradition unlike any other, Jalopy hosted its 6th annual Filthy Song Night this past Saturday with a parade of well-dressed folk and bluegrass musicians, all of whom seemed intent on one-upping each other on the gross-out meter. Hosted once again by the affably wicked Bluff Channahon (aka David Moore, from Langorne Slim and Bing and Ruth), there were songs about everything from Park Slope moms, to putting your P***y on AirBnb. Some of the songs might have crossed a line - necrophilia, anyone? - but, as they say, you never really know where the line is until you've gone over it.

    SoSoActive.com As we all should know, D’angelo has been a soulful heartbeat in music since his debut release of ‘Brown Sugar’ in 1995. After his studio album ‘Voodo’ released in 2000, D’angelo took almost a 15-year break from recording. Although he hadn’t recorded or released any music, he still toured around the U.S. and overseas over the years. I have no idea how we’ve made it this long without hearing his voice on a new record. He brings so much musicianship and character to his music that he really takes you back to the root of where soul…

  • Notorious B.I.G. remix of ‘Serial’ theme is ridiculously addictive

    Art Tavana
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:15 pm
    Sarah Koenig’s “Serial” podcast was voyeuristic amusement for some, a serious murder inquiry others, and for just about everyone else it was over-hyped sleaze. But like any suspenseful nightmare, including the still-unsolved murder of rapper Notorious B.I.G., the saga of “Serial” isn’t going away any time soon.

    On Thursday night Stephen Colbert closed out the “Colbert Report” finale with a star-studded “We’ll Meet Again” that was like a “We Are The World” of the news satire genre. It was a hell of a final act. But after the closing song Colbert added one last coda you probably didn’t notice that has a chilling backstory.The song was “Holland, 1945″ from Neutral Milk Hotel’s seminal “In the Aeroplane over the Sea.” Uproxx points to a send-off Maureen Dowd of the New York Times wrote for Colbert earlier this year after his…

Along with that slice of brilliance, he spun out of control, angrily asking the world to give him the full recognition and acclaim he clearly feels has been in short supply for the past two decades.In his most recent ranty interview, Corgan made the point that in the current music scene, “EDM is kicking everybody’s fucking ass” in terms of…

    By Gemma Brosnan THERE’s no doubt the term English Riviera conjures up instant comparatives of everything the French do better, but perceptions of the old-fashioned seaside are slowly shifting away from the ‘kiss-me-quick, squeeze-me-slowly’ Brits-on-holiday mentality as the region undergoes an extensive revival. While Torbay’s sandy beaches and sub-tropical climate have long been highlighted, the region has recently undergone a dramatic refurbishment to shake off the dreary Fawlty Towers tagline that has haunted the tourist board for almost 40 years.

    Jeb Bush is running for President in 2016 … then again in any event he’s certain making it sound like it. The previous Florida representative says he is considering the likelihood.

    A month ago, a request to have 19 Kids and Counting scratched off by TLC made the rounds on the web, in the long run accumulating more than 180,000 marks. The Duggars reacted with a counter-appeal to spare the show, yet without a doubt, their endeavors were unnecessary, as 19 Kids remains TLC’s most prominent arrangement. Thus, it was presumably never in any risk of being wiped out. So maybe Duggar patriarch Jim Bob can’t be rebuked for doing a triumph lap, however numerous have whined that his internet gloating is in poor taste in any case. Commentators say his disobedient…

    From the beginning of time, people have been making others famous, awarding them celebrity status and admiring them for whatever talents they possess that have earned them their iconic position. But things have changed very much since the triumphant parades of Caesar in Ancient Rome; today’s celebrities make more of an impact on our lives than many of us probably realise. No longer confined to the radio, TV or catwalk, celebrities such as Kate Moss, P.

    Bill Cosby won’t be accused of a wrongdoing originating from his charged attack of a lady at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, dominant voices in Los Angeles said. In a claim recorded in Los Angeles County Superior Court recently, Judy Huth said she and a 16-year-old companion met Cosby that year at a San Marino park. The asserted attack happened later, after Judy Huth, who was only 15 years of age at the time, said Cosby provided for her liquor to drink and headed her to the house. It’s one of an arrangement of around two dozen irritating rape charges made against Cosby, 77, which…

    9 Dec 2014 | 5:30 am
    Howard Tate - Ain't Nobody HomeToday's Song of the Day features a trio of tunes from Howard Tate.  The first two, Ain't Nobody Home and Get It While You Can, are from his 1966 album Get It While You Can.  The third, 8 Days on the Road, is from 1972's Howard Tate.Soul, sounding a lot like Otis Redding. Howard Tate shows just how hard the music business is.  His first album in particular, where he teamed with writer/producer Jerry Ragovoy (he wrote Time Is On My Side by the Rolling Stones), is chock full of great soul that should have launched a long and successful career.

    Alt-J - TessellateToday's Song of the Day is by Alt-J  Tessellate.  British alternative band, this song, from 2012's An Awesome Wave, features Thom Yorke like vocals over a electronic piano, bass, and hip hop beat, starting with a bell like keyboard intro.  To my ear, a sound similar to Autour de Lucie.  Tessellation is a math term, meaning an image created when a shape is repeated over and over again covering a plane without any gaps or overlaps (think M.C. Escher). This is not the 'official video', but a tribute I liked better.  Are triangles your favorite…

The contrast we both hear and see is a symbol of Niko’s move from the popular Latin club scene to an underground movement that is trying to prove music can have a positive faith-based message while remaining danceable and fun.  In some ways, this shift has given Niko more freedom than…

    I’ve heard some talk of Becky G over the past year, but never really took the time to hear her music.  Her latest soca-infused pop single “Don’t Stop Dancin’” is definitely playlist-worthy and marks her introduction to the Spanglish Noise blog.  It’s easy to compare Becky G to J Lo if you heard her remake to Jenny From The Block  (approved by Jennifer Lopez of course), but Becky is admittedly a bit girly in personality (she’s only 17), while J Lo rose into music with  more of a bad girl Bronx sound.  That’s not to say that Becky…

    After many years of hard work and limited reach, Justin Quiles has finally broken free over this past year to earn some wider recognition.  The Puerto Rican singer comes from the Orlando reggaeton scene, yet his influences are more diverse than the genre’s stereotype, and his creativity more ambitious.  Perhaps this has something to do with how J Quiles was born in the US, raised in Puerto Rico during his youth, and then returned to the US during his formative teenage years at a time when reggaeton was poised to explode in the US.  While he was still too new to reap the full…

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

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

    Calvin HarrisMany times certain news items make me reflect upon my time as a college student and the months following my graduation. Young, and full of musical arrogance, I had a way of looking down on some of the popular musicians at the time. Remember, the mid 1980’s was a time when hip-hop was forging a new place in the music industry, but I had my doubts about its sustainability. My supercilious demeanor extended toward the disc jockey as well. “How hard is it to play a record“, I thought to myself. “The difficult part is the performance of the singers and musicians“.

    Do you believe it has almost been thirty years since the historic recording of the song "We Are the World"? That means there is an entire generation of people who although are very familiar with the song, were not born when the song was recorded and initially released. It also means there is an entire generation today that may not know the purpose of the song. Music is produced every day and of course, the songs are personal to the writer, performer or both. Nevertheless, there are many songs created to further a cause. "We are the World" is a good example of this because it was written and…

    The RidgelingsIf I placed an advertisement looking for musicians to form a new band and asked for a guitar player, you would most likely think I am creating a pop or jazz music band. However, if next on the list is a banjo player, and then mandolin, you would start to see the makings of a bluegrass or folk music outfit. You would assume this based on instrumentation only - without really hearing the group. Such is the make-up of this weeks’ featured group The Ridgelings.Formed in Boulder in late 2013, the Ridgelings are still fresh to the Colorado music scene. The group has three…

    One of the things that we can learn from isolated tracks is what works in the context of a particular hit record. The reverb, compression, performance, and production all make a big difference in how we ultimately perceive the song. That's why this week's isolated track, the vocal on Bruce Springsteen's breakout "Born To Run," is so cool, since it readily exhibits all of those things. Here's what to listen for.1. The vocal is very compressed, but it's not sibilant. What happens is that we can hear every breath and it just raises the passion of the performance. We might cut out those breaths…

  • Chimes- Total Sunflower

    16 Dec 2014 | 8:00 am
    New Jersey/Brooklyn-based Chimes is a psych/slack rock foursome that revel in nothingness. While exploring dream worlds and the cinematic, they wade through pools of post-punk, psychedelia, and shoegaze, allowing rip currents of sonic expression to take them under. Total Sunflower is one of my favorite songs of the year. It's an electric track charged with a heavy post-punk feel on the guitars and vocals; a pummeling yet gauzy ride through wild guitar bends, pedal scuzz, and nihilistic poetics. This is a band to keep your ear on in 2015.Free Download

The likeable track is full of the kind of post-adolescent sentiments you’d expect to hear from a young band fresh out of high-school. While we were listening to ‘Suicide Saturday’ we checked out the full ‘Bashful Creatures’ EP and it’s lined with spritely-indie melodies, heart on sleeve lyrics and a general happy-go-lucky vibe which makes them sound so appealing… Head over to their Bandcamp page to download the EP…

    Ahead of the release of their debut album ‘Ratworld’ in the new year; Leeds duo Menace Beach have unveiled ‘Tastes Like Medicine’, the third track to be lifted from the LP following ‘Blue Eye’ and ‘Come on Give Up’. ‘Tastes Like Medicine’ harks the mind back to 90’s college era with its rollicking drum sequences and slackly delivered dual harmonies from Liza Violet and Ryan Needham; the band have an ever evolving sound (and guest members) flirting with electro and psych previously; but ‘Tastes Like Medicine’ with all its rock simplicity feels…

    Minnesota quartet Hippo Campus have caught our attention with the aptly-titled ‘Suicide Saturday’, taken from the band’s debut EP ‘Bashful Creatures’. The likeable track is full of the kind of post-adolescent sentiments you’d expect to hear from a young band fresh out of high-school. While we were listening to ‘Suicide Saturday’ we checked out the full ‘Bashful Creatures’ EP and it’s lined with spritely-indie melodies, heart on sleeve lyrics and a general happy-go-lucky vibe which makes them sound so appealing… Head over to their Bandcamp page to download the EP…

    The world of bionics has been making great leaps forward in the past few years to the delight of many. One of the biggest and most impactful advancements has directly benefitted those who have suffered through many years of life without the use of one or more of their limbs.

They played at the Crescent Ballroom in Downtown Phoenix last week, and had it been anywhere else I might have declined. Granted, there aren’t a lot of things to do on the Friday after Thanksgiving and the Crescent Ballroom has killer acoustics, but the Meat Puppets?? Isn’t that for old people?? Those guys have been around since—what—1980? CC reminded me that they are homeboys and it is our duty to support our peeps. Okay, okay. I’ll go. Tanqueray and Tonic please!

If that wasn’t bad enough, that feeling of uncertainty often haunts us till we’re in our twenties or thirties–but why? When it comes to relationships, our younger years seems to haunt us no better than the ghost of Christmas past.

    For the second night my musical escapades a few weeks back, I attended the Til-Two Club in San Diego. This local dive bar appears to have a good deal of history behind it, as its walls are decorated with posters of previous shows featuring artists I’d never heard of, the designs for most of which suggest that this place has been open for a few decades. This notion is supported by the fact that the interior dance room still has a disco ball, mirrored ceiling panels, and DJ turntables on the dance floor. This is not where the night’s bands performed.

Growing up in Chicagoland with a father that was a Blues musician, Sciryl was introduced into the world of music at a young age. By the age of 12, he had already written his first rap with the help of his brother making beats on the keyboard. Sciryl was known throughout high school as a talented artist and gained respect from his peers by freestyling and battling others.

  • Let’s Talk Streaming…

    slightlyoffkey
    24 Nov 2014 | 6:25 am
    In case you’ve been living under a rock – streaming has been causing quite the controversy lately. It all started when Taylor Swift, America’s sweetheart, pulled all of her music from Spotify – calling it a “grand experiment” that “didn’t feel right.” Because of Ms. Swift’s popularity, others felt compelled to respond. Some agreed with her, but many others praised streaming as the savior of a dying music industry. Bono for instance, recently commended Spotify for “giving 70 percent of all their revenues to rights holders,” and said that it was the record labels…
  • Some Thoughts on Prince…

    slightlyoffkey
    15 Nov 2014 | 9:24 am
    In case you missed it, Prince broke “Saturday Night Live” protocol last week and delivered an epic eight-minute power set. An eclectic mix of new material, random props, and visual effects, it was by far the best part of Saturday’s lackluster show. More importantly, however, it reminded me, yet again, why all artists should strive to be a little bit more like Prince. Prince exists in a world all his own. Having managed to defy easy categorization for over 30 years, he refuses to be limited by either his past or the expectations of others. After the success of his breakout album, for…

    On Thursday, Neil Young officially launched Pono—a digital music player that costs $400 and promises the highest sound quality on the market. His crusade for better sound has raised over $6.2 million on Kickstarter and gained endorsements from the likes of Eddie Vedder, Beck, and Sting. The device—which resembles a Toblerone candy bar—will hit stores in March and will be accompanied by an iTunes-like Pono music store. Now, I’m as much of an audiophile as the next columnist and I have the speakers to prove it, but there’s one glaring problem I see with this new “wonder-iPod.”…

    It’s no secret that Thom Yorke actively hates the music industry. After ditching his record label in 2007, he’s since accused Apple of trying to “destroy music” and Spotify of being the “last desperate fart of a dying corpse.” Perhaps it was naïve on my part, but I had really begun to think that there was nothing more Yorke could do to surprise me—that his musical misanthropy had reached some kind of bitter plateau. Then he released his new album through BitTorrent. Yes, that BitTorrent. The album, “Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes,” finds Yorke shunning literally every…

As Ek suggests in his latest interview, we are just in the beginning, “…there’s a billion people doing it [listening to music online]. If they contribute to a legal service of any kind, that’s a huge win.” Ek goes on to say “We are in a growing industry, not really an industry where we’re fighting for market share.”  The music labels are all adjusting…

    How to Sing Better

  • 3 Tips On How To Sing In Tune Without Trying

    Andy Barnes
    16 Dec 2014 | 2:31 am
    One of the hallmarks of a great singer is that they learned how to sing in tune and how to do it consistently. On the other end of the spectrum, when a singer struggles to stay in tune, it can be rather difficult to listen to. The goal is to learn how to sing in tune without having to try and sing in tune i.e. it comes naturally. to do this it is important that you learn to sing with a good,solid technique. I am not necessarily talking about singing in a live situation where you can’t hear yourself, as it would be difficult to stay on pitch no matter how good a singer you are. I am…
  • 3 Tips On How To Scream Without Damaging Your Voice

    Andy Barnes
    10 Dec 2014 | 3:31 am
    I remember hearing Robert Plant or Stevie Wonder scream those really high notes, and I always wondered how they did it. How did they learn how to scream so high? Then Jeff Buckley came along, and was doing the same thing – screaming out E & F’s above high C’s like there was no tomorrow, and I said to myself, I had to learn how to scream. It took me a while to learn how to do it, and also how to scream without damaging my voice, and I want to share those tips with you. What Is Screaming When Singing? Before we get into the “nitty gritty”, it would be good to…
  • How To Sing With Vibrato If You Have A Straight Tone

    Andy Barnes
    10 Dec 2014 | 2:17 am
    It seems that in more modern singing styles, vibrato is not seen as something that doesn’t quite fit. If you listen to many singers, they will tend to sing a straight tone when holding long notes, and some singers may bring some vibrato right at the end of the note. I believe a little differently. I think that vibrato gives a voice its beauty. I also think that it can be used quite happily in modern singing. If you don’t believe me, just ask artists like Jeff Buckley. The correct use of vibrato not only makes a voice beautiful but can also make the voice sound bigger as well as…

    Grrl Pal’s name is a bit of a misnomer. I mean what would you expect from a group with “Grrl” in their name? Well, I expected feminist riot grrrl hardcore punk from Washington, DC! Instead Grrl Pal are a duo from Perth, Australia who specialise in synth heavy bedroom pop songs. This turn of events is by no means a disappointment. “NGHT” is a gorgeous piece of unassuming synthpop. The melodies are catchy, but not ostentatious. Quite wonderful. On top of this, that video is pretty delightful. My enjoyment is perhaps due to my love for anything night related. This…

  • King of Cats – Working Out – LP Review

    Jamie Coughlan

    When my grandfather passed away in 2002, I witnessed my grandmother cry, sob in fact, and intone, “What will I do now?” The moment was so raw, intimate, and completely out of character for a tough and life hardened 85 year old Irish woman, who had buried her first three children as infants, that I didn’t know where to look. I shuffled uneasily, and, to my eternal shame, cowardly looked away, frightened by her vulnerability and visceral honesty. Listening to Working Out, the debut album by King of Cats (Brighton/Oxford singer songwriter Max Levy) is a similarly intimate,…
  • Laura Marling Streams ‘Short Movie’, Announces New LP

    17 Dec 2014 | 3:28 am
    After the critical success of 2013’s Once I Was An Eagle, Laura Marling has returned with the title track from her upcoming fifth album Short Movie, due for release through Virgin Records on March 23rd 2015. Remarkably, this will be her fifth LP in seven years. This is an amazingly prolific return in a career which recalls the 60s and 70s when musicians released music as frequently as Lionel Messi scores goals. Apparently, the record will see a move towards a bigger and more electric feel for Marling, with a freer and looser approach than any of her previous albums. It follows a…

    Scottish singer/songwriter C(hristopher) Duncan is increasingly sounding like one character to keep a solid eye on. “And I” is the b-side to “For”, Duncan’s debut single from his upcoming debut LP, set for release in summer 2015 via Brighton’s Fat Cat Records. Both tracks reveal a meticulous, nuanced, and emotive singer/songwriter, who already possesses a gravity that belies his age. While “For” bears a resemblance to Nick Drake, this track reminds of Jeff Buckley’s cover of “Lilac Wine”. You can download both tracks for free…

    Quote of the Day. “When I say ‘hip-hop is dead,’ basically, America is dead. There is no political voice. Music is dead.” Nas Nas is on of the greatest Hip Hop figures of our time. So when he speaks on the culture we must listen. Of course Hip Hop could never be dead but it is dying slowly. We must save the culture and community before it is too late and out of our hands. The real voices of the community must continue to speak out because the faces of Hip Hop in the media are changing. Only us can save us. The post Quote of the Day – @Nas states Hip Hop is Dead.

And aside from all the enthusiastic conversations he’s happened to stir throughout the music community (Four Tet, Mary Anne Hobbs and James Blake are endorsing him!), people are talking about his age. He’s only 16, but don’t let it distract you from his music! It’s quite a forceful and ominous presence, with the stomach punching bass lines that help to create a violent and gritty resonance.

  • Christmas Playlist 3: Holly Jolly Christmas

    17 Dec 2014 | 4:00 am
    Happy Holidays! Most holiday seasons, I make one huge playlist of all of the Christmas songs I’ve ever known, and I play them on shuffle. You wouldn’t believe how many times I have to run over to my computer/phone/music-playing-device and skip songs because they are waaaay toooo slooooow! There are moments that are perfect for sentimental, tear-jerking Christmas songs, but I don’t thinkI’ve ever experienced one.So for the first time, I have created a Christmas playlist of only peppy, holly jolly songs! It sure took me long enough, but it is finally here. I hope you enjoy this as…
  • Christmas Music: 6 Instrumental Songs That Speak Louder Than Words

    Her Life is Her Canvas
    16 Dec 2014 | 4:00 am
    Though there are many holiday songs riddled with cozy words about sleigh bells and toasting chestnuts by the fire, sometimes instrumental songs that don’t speak a word can be even more powerful and festive. Whether it’s a movie score or an instrumental accompaniment to a live performance, some of my favorite holiday tunes have no words at all.The best part about these songs is that you can play them while you are doing something else and not get distracted by a loud, booming (though talented) voice. On the flip side, if you take a moment to really pay attention, these songs will…

    Argh! I always try to be so creative with my music listening habits by exploring blogs and websites for new sounds. But almost always, without fail, I fall in love with a new band or artist (to me) and find these words on their Spotify bio: “Fitz and the Tantrums brew up a retro sound inspired by Motown and Stax Records.”Hm. So much for being a musical adventurer.But man, these guys are good! I had actually never heard them until I listened to a bunch of music from this comment section on A Cup of Jo. I was very excited to finally hear their music.  The band is made up of band members…

    I do not know about you, guys, but when I was in elementary and high school, when I had enough savings for a week from my 10 peso a day baon, the greatest reward for me is a Songhits. I am a 90s kid so, yes, these Songhits were truly my guilty pleasure. Whenever I did good in a test, I would always ask my mother to buy me couple of Songhits and I know that I am not alone with this obsession as most people my age are clearly in love with these little booklet. What is a SongHits? The only reasons why you would not know what a Songhits is if 1) You are not a Filipino 2) You are a Filipino but…

    Us, Filipinos value music so much that we already have a set of our own criteria whether the song will be a hit or a miss. Notice how there are some OPM songs that do not make it to the cut and not that well-loved and appreciated by the Pinoys? Artists and composers must know that there are some special things that us, Pinoys, are specifically looking for in our OPM songs. What are those? 1) Famous, Fresh-faced Celebrity Admit it, what we notice first especially when we are watching an OPM song on the television is the singer, and the song itself only comes second.

  • “THE INTERVIEW” CONTROVERSY – FILM CANCELLED AMIDST TERRORIST THREATS

    admin8
    20 Dec 2014 | 3:36 pm
    “The Interview” has been getting publicity that it would never have dreamed of. Of course, the reason it’s on everyone’s newsfeed is because the planned December 25th release has been cancelled, so the publicity will not translate into revenue. Perhaps there is such a thing as bad publicity after all. The movie was in the news earlier because of its part in the Sony leak scandal, which started on November 24th. Sony, the studio producing “The Interview,” was the target of an unprecedented hack which stole company-wide sensitive information and leaked it…
  • IS NEW YORK GOING TO HAVE ITS OWN MEN’S FASHION WEEK?

    admin8
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:33 pm
    Men’s fashion has never seen as much hype as women’s. While all major fashion weeks do show men’s collections, they happen in far fewer numbers, and with fewer turnout than women’s. It’s just more fun to see a dress flow down the runway, I guess. But now, men might have an opportunity to stand on their own in a New York Men’s fashion week. Still in the works, this will allow American designers of menswear to showcase their collections to an audience specifically interested in men’s fashion. According to a report published in WWD, the Council of…

    You might trust Ralph Lauren to make a good shirt, but what about a good meal? His new restaurant, called the Polo Bar, opens soon in New York City, just down the street from his flagship store on Fifth Avenue. It has become a trend for stores to open up restaurants under their brand, and successfully at that: ABC Carpet & Home has ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina; Armani has The Armani Ristorante, which is near the soon-to-open Polo Bar. To some, it sounds gimicky, but really it’s just about turning a vision into reality for Lauren. It is a restaurant not typically seen in New York,…

    The famous Lincoln Center will no longer be the home of New York Fashion Week. According to the terms of a settlement reached between the city and park advocates, NYFW will be forced to find a new location. Back in September, organizers already knew that 2014 was New York Fashion Week’s last time at Lincoln Center, with September 2015 set to mark a reinvention of Fashion Week. Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park is the cause of the dispute, with New York City Park Advocates alleging that event organizers were setting tents and equipment up on park grounds, effectively damaging the…

He cites Michael Jackson and Prince amongst his influences, stating that he loves making music. Hamilton says composing music keeps him chilled and it is something that he is very passionate about. “When I was in Japan, I was in the studio, Monday to Wednesday. Then, Thursday to Sunday, I was racing. Then I was straight back to the studio.” Although he enjoys making music, he won’t be giving up the day job anytime soon, saying…
