    U2 "didn't earn much" from their new album. The Irish rockers gave away 'Songs Of Innocence' to iTunes users because they felt their fans "deserved" to have the record for free, and admit even Apple were shocked by the scale of their generosity. Frontman Bono explained: "It is a very difficult time for songwriters because people download music in an illegal way. Apple wanted people pay to for music and we really appreciate it. We spoke to Apple and we decided to do a gift to those who purchase music on iTunes." "We shared the whole album and Apple were quite shocked about it. I said to them…

  • Every Idea is a Good Idea – Tom Sturges

    14 Oct 2014 | 1:15 pm
    Every Idea Is A Good Idea is the most useful book I have read in a very long time. It is a book you won’t want to put down, but that you absolutely must. You must stop reading so you can process and maybe even record the thought bursts that undoubtedly explode, setting off a ripple of “thought harmonics.” It has large margins so you can do exactly that, actually. One moment you’re reading about the natural genius of Itzhak Pearlman and then suddenly you have figured out how to fix the broken gate in the back garden without spending any money. You’re reading about…

    Girl Talk and Freeway's collaborative EP, Broken Ankles featuring Waka Flocka Flame, Jadakiss and Young Chris, was released this past spring via Datpiff. Following Allen Cordell's outstanding and over-the-top video for the EP's debut single, 'Tolerated,' artist Lisa Ramsey has now created an equally awesome and extreme "Simpsons"-based animated video for the remix of Broken Ankles' 'Suicide' feat. A$AP Ferg. It presents an alternative reality where Freeway and A$AP Ferg both star as Bart Simpson-esque characters, while Girl Talk is represented by Milhouse. There's an army of Barts wielding…

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:39 pm
    It’s been four long years since Sage Francis released a new album or toured and for a while it seemed that it wouldn’t happen again, with the sharp tongued and fiercely outspoken rapper seemingly putting his own music on hold to concentrate on releasing other people’s music through his own Strange Famous imprint instead. This year, however, Sage announced that he would be returning with a new album called Copper Gone and touring the world. Why? Because, as he says during the mock press conference that accompanied the video for 'Pressure Cooker', “This hop-hop game needs me!” It…

The band are set to release their first two EP's via cassette next week. The self-titled cassette was recorded and produced without the use of computers--100% analog (including a homemade 150lbs plate reverb unit)-- and tracked in Alex's basement on 80's 8-track Otari mx5050 tape machine, which is the same model deck that was used for Nirvana's Bleach. The result is a clean yet dusty combo of early Mudhoney-esque grunge and…

    20 Oct 2014 | 9:30 am
    Words like ‘genius’ and ‘prodigy’ are quick to get bandied around in the music industry, but in the case of emerging Congolese/Austrian producer Kimyan Law, it forms an entirely accurate representation of the artist. At the tender age of 19, he’s set to make waves in the shape of double-sided single release, ‘Run Ames’ / ‘Eclairage’, which is set to be released on October 27th via London-based tastemakers Blu Mar Ten Music. Both tracks are taken from his remarkable forthcoming debut album Coeur Calme, which is also scheduled to follow in November. It’s clear from the off…

This time around, you'll be in control of a sentient slice of bread, who flails around a house, desperately trying to toast itself. Somehow Bossa Studios has outdone themselves - who would have guessed being a slice of bread would be crazier than surgery?

  • James Cameron Talks About His Personal Involvement in TERMINATOR: GENiSYS

    Damen Norton
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:17 pm
    James Cameron is a bit of a polarizing figure in Hollywood.  He’s been accused of hubris, while also being hailed as a champion of cinema technology, typically undertaking films that are massive and ambitious.  This is the man responsible for classic films like Titanic, Aliens, and True Lies, after all.  As of late, he’s turned his attention over to his budding franchise Avatar, with the filmmaker proclaiming publicly that he is “in the Avatar business“.  So it may be a while before we see him try his hand at something different, but that doesn’t mean he…

    Now that the cat is out of the bag, we all know that DC and Warner Brothers have planned an ambitious rollout of some of the comic brand’s most famous heroes and villains.  Some of the revelations are absolutely fascinating, with a lot of the talk centered around Ezra Miller being cast as The Flash, and David Ayer signing on to write and direct a Suicide Squad film – the latter of which is attracting some insane talent.  But, with it also came some confirmations of previously reported rumors, and chief among them is the fact that Jason Momoa will indeed…

    In the 1980’s, Eddie Murphy was arguably the biggest comedy star in the world.  The former Saturday Night Live funnyman turned his fame from the landmark sketch series into a mega-successful film career.  In that time, he dominated the box office with legendary hits like Beverly Hills Cop (and its sequel), The Golden Child, Coming To America, and Trading Places.  Later down the road, Murphy’s star began to fade.  Since the late 90’s, the actor has made ham-fisted attempts to recapture the magic of his early days, with clunkers likeThe Adventures of Pluto Nash, Norbit, and Meet Dave…

    For the past few years, Record Store Day has extended its tendrils from its usual April date into Black Friday releases, which is on 11/28 this year. This year’s list of exclusives include the usual mix of mainstream and indie releases, with the tables tilted a bit towards the mainstream. Case in point: both 5 Seconds Of Summer and Ed Sheeran will be putting out some vinyl this year.

    The release of sci-fi superhero romp Guardians Of The Galaxy neatly coincides with a renewed interest in tape culture, which means that of course the soundtrack for the movie is going to be put out on cassette. (Director James Gunn hinted on Twitter a while back that he was aiming for a tape release.) The soundtrack — which has already been released digitally and on CD and vinyl — did well sales-wise and is currently the tenth largest selling album of the year so far. The tie-in even sort of makes sense, considering that the mixtape factors heavily into the film and is played on…

    File under….Thank God…. SiriusXM will announce its Q3 results on October 28, 2014 at 8:00 AM.  This news is welcomed because SiriusXM has been drifting downward for a couple of weeks now and perhaps the good quarter that the company will soon announce can be enough to apply the brakes on this slide.  SiriusXM already announced higher subscriber guidance, and the company likely had a very productive quarter with financials as well.  While the exponential type revenue growth we have seen in the past may be flattening a bit, the stability offered by SiriusXM is something that…

    This week the subject of Liberty Media buying out SiriusXM raised itself again when Greg Maffei stated, “Sirius holders wish they took the deal”, referring to a proposed deal at the beginning of 2014 that had Liberty effectively paying about $3.86 per share to get the half of the company it does not own.  Since that offer SiriusXM has not seen that type of stock price, and the equity currently is trading in the $3.20’s. The initial deal made a great deal of sense but had same passionate opponents.  In most cases, those oppsed to the deal did not really understand the…

Analysts are expecting 2014 sales to come in at somewhere near 16.4 to 16.5 million.  This is possible if 4 million to 4.1 million in auto sales can happen in Q4.  Last year Q4 delivered 3.8 million units.  Year over year numbers we have experienced in 2014 have been such that…

And it shouldn’t be coming from the bench. It should be coming from the legislature.” The letter of the law has many…

Spanning just over three minutes, the production sees DLX balancing some introspective musicality with ever-active drum programming, as the beatmaker deftly reshapes his rhythmic structures throughout the track, resulting in an effort that in many ways harkens back to the heyday of IDM while adding an extra bass weight to the proceedings. read more

I’m talking about the new U2 album, Songs Of Innocence, the one released as a “gift” to all Apple product users, and caused no end of controversy in the process. I still believe it was a mistake for the band to go about things as they did. Maybe as a standalone option, as a free download from iTunes that recipients had to seek out and initiate, the record might have been less of a flashpoint…

  • Blu-ray Review: “Steven Spielberg Director’s Collection”

    Scott Malchus
    19 Oct 2014 | 11:01 pm
    I’m always suspicious of these specially packaged Blu-ray collections, especially ones that are obviously repurposing previously released discs. However, the Steven Spielberg Director’s Collection is definitely one of the finer box sets I’ve come across. The release comes from Universal Studios and covers eight of Spielberg’s films for the studio. Included  in this set are the brilliant restored version on Jaws that came out a couple of years ago, E.T., Jurassic Park, and its sequel, The Lost World. What makes the Steven Spielberg Director’s Collection special is the other four…

    Not satisfied with producing hundreds of records and working with a litany of famous names, sound artist / composer / musician Håkan Lidbo several times a year embarks on some novel experiment in sound and interactivity. In the latest, he’s worked with smart lightbulbs from Philips to transform an entire building in Stockholm into your very own personal game board. They’re calling it the world’s biggest Master Mind game, and who are we to argue? The idea is, windows become pixels, and you play online to try to guess the color code of your opponent, in a game of wits. You…

    The tidy toolbar at the bottom shows Audiobus connectivity. Here’s a case where the iPad version of a DJ app has surpassed what even the desktop version does. On Windows and Mac, Traktor is a powerful app for DJs, to be sure. But there isn’t an obvious way of routing DJ mixes through external effects or connecting it to other production tools. On iOS, now there is. Native Instruments quietly added Audiobus support to its popular iOS DJ app, which opens up the ability to route sound from the DJ tool to other apps. Why would you want such a feature? Recording mixes probably…

You’ve likely seen it already – this may be the most-leaked, most-teased DJ product in history. But now that it’s fully revealed, the S8 is almost certain to fan the flames of an ongoing debate: Just what is digital DJing, anyway? First, we can at least work out what the S8 is. It’s an audio mixer with control surfaces on both sides. It’s hardware made specifically to sell software (or the other…

    "Way" back in March of 2014, a rival to the Fast And Furious franchise made its debut.  NEED FOR SPEED, directed by Scott Waugh, was marketed to give us a slightly retro-street-race movie from what the Fast And Furious franchise has evolved into.   Boasting real cars, in-camera effects, and a host of drool-inducing automobiles, NEED FOR SPEED looked to bring the popular and historic game franchise to the big screen in a big way.  Brought on to score the film was previous collaborator, NATHAN FURST, who worked with Waugh on Act of Valor (2012).Missing out on its theatrical…

It netted an unlikely but thoroughly deserved Academy Award nomination (why it didn’t win – especially considering what did that year – is beyond me) and set the bar into the stratosphere for the film music of the 2010s, a bar that hasn’t been reached by any score since. The score represented the high point of a period of very strong production for…

He’d been enjoying, just then, a remarkable half-decade comeback as a mainstream country star, then returned to rock with the likes of his hit version of “Chantilly Lace.” As…

We don’t know much about Bridges at this point, and it’s hard to believe that this kid channeling a young Sam Cooke comes from our own backyard, or anywhere, but we can’t escape the promise of greatness we keep hearing in his timeless songs.

  • Eight Questions About Spanish Cuisine With Salinas Chef Luis Bollo.

    Ken Scrudato
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:14 pm
    (Pictured: Salinas interior) 21st Century Spain can often seem like a nation of city-states, with the various regions proudly exerting their cultural and political autonomy. Catalonia and the Basque Country even have strong separatist movements. Whether or not this has complicated the perception of Spanish cuisine in the US is difficult to say; but it has never caught on to the degree of its Mediterranean counterparts Greek and Italian. Despite Ferran Adrià being perhaps the most influential chef of his generation, most Americans still think “tapas” when they think of Spanish…

    If you happened to see Neighbors over the summer, you’d remember that one scene where Seth Rogen and Zac Efron spoke about their respective favorite Batman. Seth Rogen flawlessly imitated Michael Keaton and Zac Efron chose to stick with modern-day Christian Bale. It was a pivotal moment where a generational gap was bridged within the context of the film’s theme. But for those who aren’t serious Batman fans, Michael Keaton was the original Batman. He instantly became a household name and suddenly overnight he became a man’s man and ladies man featured on the covers of nearly every…

You know, the dog eagerly waits for his scruffy twenty-something owner to come home after a night of drinking, but doesn’t… until the next morning where dude apologizes to dog and says “I decided I shouldn’t drive home last night. I stayed at Dave’s.” It currently has over 19 million views on YouTube and is starting to air on television. It played during last night’s Sunday Night Football.

    Chicago’s Twin Peaks released their second LP, Wild Onion, earlier this year, an album that solidified their reputation as masters of self-consciously sloppy, deceptively catchy garage pop.

Though special guest vocals from the likes of Little Dragon, Sampha and Ezra Koenig did not materialize, SBTRKT engaged the crowd with his live beat mixing and mashing of tribal electronica. His lighting and visuals cast an electronic haze over a packed house as the audience head-bobbed to each beat in delight.

The Baltimore duo who go by Normaling told me when I caught up with them recently that they usually find themselves making music while in parallel moods. Call it chance or fate, but this conscious connection results in the kind of kinetic music that plays like a conversation between people who know each other very well. Normaling recently dropped their Corpus Callosum EP, a six-track collection that ties together strains of Baltimore club, house, hip-hop and Miami bass with some left-brain/right-brain tension.

    The future of music sales may be bleaker than we thought. 2014 is now 10 months old and not one album released this year has gone platinum.  By comparison, at this point last year, 5 albums had gone platinum. The only album to reach 1 million in sales this year has been the Frozen soundtrack, which was released in 2013.  In fact, this year's two other top sellers - Eric Curch and Lorde - we released last year and have still sold well under 1 million. Single sales are not much better. In 2014 only 60 songs have sold more than a million copies,compared to 83 in 2013.  While happening…

  • What Is A Music Publishing Deal? - and Do I Really Need One?

    Guest Post
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:30 am
    By Wallace Collins from Wallace Collins Entertainment Law Blog The term "publishing", most simply, means the business of song copyrights.  A songwriter owns 100% of his song copyright and all the related publishing rights until the writer signs those rights away. Under the law, copyright (literally, the right to make and sell copies) automatically vests in the author or creator the moment the expression of an idea is "fixed in a tangible medium." (i.e., the moment it is written down or recorded on tape.)  With respect to recorded music, there are really two copyrights: a copyright in the…

  • Early blues and country music

    21 Oct 2014 | 1:30 am
    Beginning in the early 1920s, and continuing through the mid 1940s, record companies separated vernacular music of the American South into two categories, divided along racial lines: the “race” series, aimed at a black audience, and the “hillbilly” series, aimed at a white audience. These series were the precursors to the also racially separated Rhythm & Blues and Country & Western charts, and arguably the source of the frequent racial divisions of today’s recording industry. But a closer examination reveals that the two populations rely heavily on many of the same musical…

Laird, author of Austin City Limits: A History, about the challenges the show has faced, the ways that it has adapted to a rapidly changing music industry, and what makes ACL perennially appealing to viewers. What is the biggest challenge that Austin City Limits (ACL) has faced over the years? One of the show’s biggest challenges for the first 25 years was funding.

  • In person online: the human touch

    Raquel Fernandes
    14 Oct 2014 | 1:30 am

The physical separation of instructor and students creates a psychological and communications gap, and the missing element is the perception of people as real in an online environment — the human touch. Did she think the…

This was my first visit to Pittsburgh since 2000, when I saw Mariss Jansons lead the Pittsburgh Symphony in Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra. Two strong recommendations: Caliban Books, where I picked up as many books as will fit in my luggage; and Crested Duck, where we ate after the lecture.

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:49 am
    About a month ago I threw an event in Berlin called EBM Blitzlicht. I was spending a week in Europe on tour and instead of meeting a bunch of friends at a bar I thought, “let’s all DJ!”. I booked a small basement club near the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) called 1820 Bar. The dance floor sits low in a pit with a cat walk surrounding it. There is a large video screen. During the event I played some videos of 80s goth dance nights. I (The Horrorist) did a DJ set and I booked Petra Flurr, Denard Henry aka Sonic Architect, DJ Death Bat and DJ Andi. Everyone played EBM, New Beat and…

Acid colors, awesome soundtrack and very good arcade play. “It all makes for a wonderful arcade experience. The twist is rich enough that everything feels fresh, and there’s something almost painfully addictive about the game as well.” – For more info:

  • Singing While Old: How Vintage Voices Can "Rock"

    Judy Rodman
    11 Oct 2014 | 2:03 pm
    Singing is a lot of things ... it is athletic, it is biological, it is psychological, it is spiritual,  it is technical and above all, it is art. Because of all these things, the voice changes as we age. And because of these things, aging is a good news/bad news balance we can tip in our voices' favor, if we know how! Let us consider...The bad news: We may have lost some vocal ability.We may not be as physically able as in younger days. Our energy and stamina may give out sooner. Our memories for lyrics may grow, shall we say, less reliable. We may have developed one or more health…
  • The Most Important Step To Vocal Improvement

    Judy Rodman
    6 Oct 2014 | 12:18 pm
    one foot in front of the other... you'll get there!Improving the voice is a multifaceted journey of exploration and surprise, filled with rabbit trails, pitfalls, toolsets, saboteurs, enablers, frustrations, u-turns, plateaus and sudden eureka moments. It is a journey of steps... and like a well-played video game, you want to take the ones that lead to victories, not defeat (and definitely not injury!)When a singer or speaker comes in for a lesson with me, I assess where they are at the present moment. Then I look for the key to the next level up for their voice. Whether it's the first lesson…
  • Studio Headphones: Tips For Best Use

    Judy Rodman

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

There are different levels of protection you can use.There is the paper and electronic trail... dated lyric sheets, worktape recordings, emails to cowriters, etc. NOTE: The 'poor man's copyright' (sending your song through certified and unopened mail to yourself) has long been debunked as useless.Also... it's a good idea, as suggested in this article at, to include the little circled 'c' copyright symbol and the name of the owner of the song in any lyric you share…
  • Singing Low Notes at a Recording Mic: The Ninja Technique

    Judy Rodman
    4 Aug 2014 | 5:29 pm
    This will be short but powerful post with a professional tip I have learned to sing my lowest notes in the vocal booth. For the first time, I'm including a little impromptu video from my webcam to illustrate. Simply put your hand on your sternum over your heart and gently press. It should cause your chest to open, not closed!) If you're doing it properly, you'll be getting taller, not shorter. Make sure your head stays back, don't let it bow forward.You should find a resonant, rich, not hooty low note much easier to sing, and more controllable, too.Did you try it? What did you notice?

    Ritwik Deshpande
    20 Oct 2014 | 10:50 am
    ‘Fear! A blackness is upon us / In holy books inscribed / The signs are now becoming clear’, bellows Demonic Resurrection frontman Sahil Makhija at the beginning of ‘Death, Desolation and Despair’. The track, the fourth off their latest album The Demon King, is about a plague descending on mankind and leaving it in ruins. It’s a chapter in the story that ties the album together — the story of how an all-consuming Demon King descends on earth with the intention of bringing mankind to its knees, and how a benevolent god tries to prevent him from doing so.

    New Delhi-based death/prog metal quintet Guillotine have followed up their 2010 full-length, The Cynic, with a new seven-minute single titled ‘The Aftermath’. Guillotine have always had socially conscious lyrical themes — instead of writing about maggot infested corpses like their death metal brethren, or spiritual transcendence like their prog metal brethren, they’ve written about issues that are relevant and relatable. The Cynic, for instance, followed the narrative of an atheist who grows increasingly disillusioned with a religion-obsessed society through the…

    A few weeks ago, Bombay-based rock pioneers Indus Creed dropped a new track — ‘Thief’. It was accompanied by a video which saw the band jamming in a basement. The video was directed by Arnab Chaudhuri, who decided to adopt a simple, no-nonsense approach. While watching it, I couldn’t stop comparing it with ‘Top of the Rock’ — the video which set the benchmark for Indian rock videography in the early nineties. ‘Top of the Rock’ was a glam metal institution. It single-handedly defined the maximalist, synth-driven aesthetic that gave tangible expression to the dreams of scores…

      New York City always has a certain romanticism to it.  In addition to it never sleeping and being the town where many of your wildest dreams can come true, there is also an aesthetic viewpoint to the city that whether it is the present pristine look or the rough and tumble 1970’s, there is an unmistakable power in its beauty. This is often best captured in moving images and filmmaker Manfried Kirchheimer understands the beat of urban life this better than most. That vision is shown in Stations of the Elevated, his 1977 filmed (released in 1981) documentary. Beginning this Friday for…

When Bill Cosby first graced American televisions screens as Alexander Scott on I SPY as an American secret agent traveling undercover overseas and posing as a professional…

    Evangelist Nelson Larkins & God’s Posse The Kind of God We Serve: Live in Chicago TREWWORKS Music Group/Deznell Music Group (2011) By Bob Marovich It is always a pleasure to hear a live gospel quartet album that truly captures the excitement of a group having church. Such an album is The Kind of God We Serve by Chicago-based Evangelist Nelson Larkins & God’s Posse. Although the group’s name gives the impression that it is a contemporary small choir, make no mistake: Nelson Larkins & God’s Posse is a rompin’, stompin’…

    “All We Need Is Love” Totally 4 Him feat. Doug Williams & Stan Jones Totally 4 Him, a young male quartet from the Full Gospel Church of God in Lumber City, Georgia, calls its style “quartemporary:” quartet music with a contemporary twist. The group’s national debut single, “All We Need Is Love,” illustrates the singers’ commitment to genre-bending by combining quartet harmonies with an island beat and smooth pop production. The Caribbean flavor gives the song’s inspirational we’ve-got-to-love-everybody theme a Bob Marley feel. The…

    Def Jam Records catapulted hip-hop into the global phenomenon it became from the most unlikely location…Rick Rubin‘s NYU dorm room. Back in 1984, amongst a stack of drum machines and DJ equipment, Rubin set out to make records that sounded like the raw hip-hop performances he saw in the clubs. Now three decades later, Rubin […]

  • Guilty Pleasures: ‘Love Will Keep Us Together’

    Peter Lee
    18 Oct 2014 | 5:10 am
    Everything about the Captain and Tennille screams '70s, from the Daryl Dragon captain's hat to Toni Tennille's strapless tops and Breck Girl hairstyle. They were also ridiculed: The term "Yacht Rock," referring to the soft, soothing pop music of the late 70s and early 80s, was inspired partly by the "Captain." (Christopher Cross's "Sailing" also had a big part in it as well.) And "Muskrat Love?" A song about to rodents mating? Really? All of that falls by the wayside when you hear "Love Will Keep Us Together." The beginning is inauspicious: a piano playing a basic boogie-woogie line with a…

    3 Oct 2014 | 11:08 am
    During the early 1980s, amid such megastars as Michael Jackson, Duran Duran, Def Leppard and Men at Work, there was Squeeze. The group, fronted by Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford, drew comparisons to Lennon and McCartney for their Beatlesque music. The group's fans were smarter than your average music fan, one notch up from Elvis Costello fans.  They marveled at lyrical references to Harold Robbins novels and William Tell.  They had their black coffee in bed. They were different. So was the crowd at Glenn Tilbrook's latest stop in Atlanta Thursday; about 80 of the 100 people gathered at…
  • Album Review: ‘Here Comes the Reign Again: The Second British Invasion’

    Peter Lee
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:48 am
    Back in the early- to mid-80s, a second wave of British artists brought their music across the Atlantic Ocean, 20 years after the Beatles, Rolling Stones and the Who invaded America. At its height in the summer of 1983, 20 of the top 40 singles (including 7 of the top 10 singles) were by British artists, breaking the previous record of 14 set in 1965. Unfortunately, many of these acts, who could have relied solely on their music, stressed their style in the new frontier of MTV. Wearing makeup and futuristic hairstyles and clothes, they were a New Wave of artists that made their mark with…

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

    Peter Lee
    25 Sep 2014 | 9:23 am
    My favorite time of year. Autumn. I've been waiting for the feeling I got in Fall 1988 to go away - some mixture of anticipation, loneliness and yearning for something I hadn't found yet. Nine months out of the year, I'm fine. But each late September, it creeps back into my psyche, and I'm returned to Berry College, a homesick, lonely student trying to find his place in the college and in this world. I write about this every year, starting with my original post introducing this mix. Fall has become a ghost haunting me, but it's a welcome ghost. These feelings - no matter how painful or sad…

Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content.

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

    Children deserve much more attention in urban planning than what they are getting currently. As small children and toddlers are not likely to raise their voices to demand the attention, it is up to us adults to do something about it. We need to support, demand and finance more initiatives that help children – and their parents – enjoy the outdoors, even in urban settings.

Luckily, we can use many more, and timeless is a third word that comes to mind immediately. Architects Geert Bosch and Annemariken Hilberlink of Berlicum, Netherlands-based HILBERINKBOSCH architects designed this timeless gem for a couple whose children have already left the house. The villa is located in Utrechtse Heuvelrug, a municipality in the Dutch province of Utrecht. The key to the harmonious elegance of the house is the way it sits on its site.

  • Video Parodies Air Canada’s Ridiculous Musical Instrument Transportation Policies

    Viola da Voce
    7 Oct 2014 | 11:29 am
    A video came out on October 5 poking fun at a recent Air Canada blunder that enraged thousands of musicians. The airline’s musical instrument transportation policy had stated that violins and cellos could be accepted as carry-on or checked baggage, while violas could only be accepted as checked baggage. Given that violas are only slightly […]

That’s exactly where the Phantom finds himself in Lyric Opera of Chicago and The Second City’s latest episode of Dr. Opera. Do they discuss Phantom’s obsession with Christine? Or maybe his […]

  • The 'God's Not Dead' Sequel You've Always Wanted Is Finally Happening

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:08 pm
    As you probably know, God's Not Dead followed one intrepid college student on a mission to prove to his class that his atheist professor's assertion of God's death has been greatly exaggerated. It's the sort of story that begs for a sequel, and Pure Flix CEO and managing partner Michael Scott is not one to deny such a tale its due. As such, we could get a God's Not Dead follow-up as early as next year, in which God will presumably continue to not be dead. What else will happen? Will another professor force another college class to convert to atheism? Or will our beloved student from the first…
  • The World Is a Vampire: Scientist Encounters 'Puppy-Sized' Spider

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:46 pm
    Piotr Naskrecki is a entomologist and photographer at Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology but, after his recent encounter with a giant spider, he'll probably look into another field, or maybe another planet. Yes, Naskrecki says he was taking a walk in Guyana when he heard something scuttling underfoot. He turned his light on it, expecting to see a small mammal but instead, "couldn't quite understand what I was seeing," That's because human eyes were never meant to rest upon the South American Goliath birdeater—a spider that measures one foot across, with a body the size of…
  • Will Idaho Pastors Be Forced to Conduct Same-Sex Weddings?

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:34 pm
    An interesting legal wrinkle in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho has drawn the national microscope after Donald and Evelyn Knapp—two ordained ministers who run a wedding chapel called the Hitching Post—moved for a temporary restraining order to be brought against an antidiscrimination ordinance. Essentially, Idaho has banned discrimination against same-sex couples. That ordinance makes an exception for religious institutions like churches, but the Hitching Post is a for-profit business—which means the Knapps could be committing a misdemeanor by refusing to marry same-sex couples. “If you turn…
  • Another Charming Visit From Marcel the Shell With Shoes On.

    Last time Jenny Slate and her husband, Dean Fleischer-Camp, released one of their irresistible "Marcel the Shell with Shoes On" videos, Slate was mostly known for her one season on SNL. These days, her future is looking bright, with her lead turn in Obvious Child grabbing all sorts of critical acclaim, as well as her note-perfect portrayal as Jean Ralphio's sister, Mona Lisa, on Parks & Rec. But she hasn't forgotten her best character, a tiny, sneakered shell named Marcel. But there's now a children's book to market—called The Most Surprised I've Ever Been—and she's back with a new…

  • How to change or build your career

    Derek Sivers
    5 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    I get emails from many people wanting to change or build their career. I always recommend the best book on the subject: “So Good They Can’t Ignore You” by Cal Newport. Here are a few of its best points: Forget passion and purpose Forget “follow your passion” or “find your true calling”. Stop thinking like that. Here’s why: Words like “passion” and “purpose” are dangerous because they sound huge and romantic. If you think you haven’t found your passion yet, you’re probably expecting it to be overwhelming — to hit you like lightning. Looking for your passion,…
  • Fixed mindset vs Growth mindset

    Derek Sivers
    20 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    One of the most important concepts I’ve learned is the difference between the “fixed” mindset and the “growth” mindset. It’s a little bit like “nature vs nurture”: People in a fixed mindset believe you either are or aren’t good at something, based on your inherent nature, because it’s just who you are. People in a growth mindset believe anyone can be good at anything, because your abilities are entirely due to your actions. This sounds simple, but it’s surprisingly deep. The fixed mindset is the most common and the most harmful, so it’s worth understanding and…

    Most of the time I feel smart, successful, and driven - like I’ve got it all figured out. But last month my wife and I broke up after four years of trying to make a bad match work. It knocked me on my ass, hard. I’ve never felt so wrong. I vulnerably called on friends for help. Amber reminded me to pull my head out of today, and think long-term again. Jeff told me to get my swagger back and hook up with every hottie in town, just relishing the moment. Ariel said I should really accept and feel this pain, instead of moving on so fast like I always do. Each different perspective made me…

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

    From now on, when I say I hate something, remind me to add “… today” to the sentence. Here's why: Tom Waits The first time I heard Tom Waits was this performance on David Letterman. I hated it. I hated it passionately. I complained to my friend that it was the worst thing I'd ever heard, and it must be some kind of joke. The second time I heard Tom Waits was a year later, when my roommate played me “Singapore”, and I hated it just as much. I still thought it must be some kind of in-joke. Maybe it's a dare, like hákarl? Someone wouldn't actually listen to this for pleasure, would…

    13 Oct 2014 | 5:12 am
    UK singer-songwriter Hobbie Stuart returns with a moving cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” The video features a pensive Stuart performing the song in solitary with only the support of an amped guitar. While Stuart has often covered Sheeran’s songs in the past, including, “A-Team” and “Sing,” this is easily one of his best interpretations. “Thinking Out Loud” just happens to be one of my favorite tracks off Sheeran’s sophomore album X, so props to Stuart for doing it justice and then some.

  • Slipknot .5: The Gray Chapter Album Review

    19 Oct 2014 | 5:46 am
    Slipknot release October 21 their 5th studio album .5: The Gray Chapter, the first material since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Grey. The record tells the story of the band for the last four years. The lyrics deal with a wide range of their emotions ranging from anger, guilty, denial and acceptance since Paul Gray is dead. The album is at the crossroads between Iowa and Vol.3 : The Subliminal Verses. The riffs are ferocious. The attacks are brutal. The entire record finds the band walking, between ruthless aggression and emotion in a punchy blend of creativity. . 5: The Gray Chapter delivers…

  • Single Serving: Kid Wave – Gloom

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:04 pm
    Kid Wave is on a teasing streak with the release of their second single, “Gloom,” off of their upcoming 4-track EP of the same name. Rife with hazy guitars, chiming melodies and muddled vocals, the track has the aura of life on the precipice; like something is waiting out there but we don’t quite know what it is yet. The group’s lead vocalist and songwriter, Lea Emmery, said of the new single, “I do a lot of daydreaming. Kid Wave is always trying to translate the vibe of wanting to go somewhere else.” And while that certainly comes across in their sound, it’s a good listen…
  • Single Serving: Bully – Milkman

    Josh Henderson
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:30 am
    Nashville band Bully just dropped the lead single from their upcoming self-released EP and it’s a certified banger. Led by singer Alicia Bognanno, the fuzzed out “Milkman” is a fast paced bit of pop-punk infused indie with some garage rock influences to boot. It’s just unfortunate that before you know it, the just over 2-minute track comes to an end. But as short as it is, it’s certainly got me excited to hear more. Bully’s EP drops on October 21st.

    A big shout out to the universe for being awesome today. There’d been hints that a Sleater-Kinney reunion might be in the works for some time now, and earlier today those rumors were confirmed as true when the Sleater-Kinney camp announced that the incredibly beloved trio are back with a new album titled No Cities To Love which will drop in January (to be followed with a world tour). In no uncertain terms, the new single declares that Brownstein, Tucker and Weiss have lost none of their passion and energy in the years since the band went on hiatus.

So there used to be this website called “We Are Hunted,” basically it was a chart for emerging artists, an indie top 100 so to speak.

    The Who And Their 50th Anniversary Timeline It’s little sad.  Roger Daltrey calls The Who’s upcoming North American tour “the beginning of the long goodbye.”  Okay, maybe it’s not that sad.  The Who have had a pretty good run, and they’re definitely well beyond their prime.  Still, it pulls at the heart strings when one of the all-time greats hangs them up (or at least threatens to). The Who are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a lengthy trip around the New World.  The first leg begins April 15 in Tampa, Florida and ends May…

    2014 Playoff Preview: Royals Run, Tigers Hit, Nationals Can Do Everything The two wildcard games that kicked off the 2014 MLB playoffs were examples of the best and the worst the postseason has to offer. The Kansas City Royals outlasting the Oakland Athletics in a 12-inning, 9-8 game is why we watch baseball.  Conversely, the San Francisco Giants manhandling the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-0 was an excuse to leave our living rooms and go clean out our sock drawers.

    Question: Hello, I’m a beginner in saxophone and have a very specific question about the involvement of front teeth while playing the saxophone. After around a month of practicing I had an unfortunate accident and 2 of my front teeth (one central and one lateral incisor) are broken. I didn’t get implants but did root canal treatment, which means the nerves are taken already, but the vibration of the sax when I want to practice still makes them hurt. There is no medical solution to this, and I’d like to ask a more functional question: Should I go ahead and try different…

It’s a small package but delivers everything needed to make a 3-day festival seem a bit less grimy! I took it to Beautiful Days with my husband and three month old baby, so sadly the condoms were not so useful, but waking up and using the waterless body wash made me feel human. You just slap it on, lather it up then towel it off, leaving you much refreshed. The toilets at this festival were not as vile as others, but still not the most…

Southern have unveiled the stunning video for their new single ‘Where I Want To Be’, which is released on the 18th August.

Dedicated to one of Dr. John’s main influences, Louis Armstrong, ‘Ske-Dat-De-Dat‘ is nothing but a joy to listen to from the second it starts to the second it ends. The opening track, ‘What A Wonderful World‘, is obviously one of Louis Armstrong’s signature tracks and it’s often…

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

    Hugh Scott
    11 Oct 2014 | 4:03 am
    By Bob McMahon Photos by Lee Klawans Ty Segall has diversified his sound in recent years. The ever-prolific musician, normally known for fist-pumping garage rock, pulled a Sea Change with last year’s haunting, mostly acoustic Sleeper, and this year’s 17-track behemoth Manipulator found him adding flourishes like strings to an attack that increasingly draws from different permutations of 20th-century guitar-based music. But you’d be forgiven for not noticing this at Tuesday’s Thalia Hall concert. Segall wisely picked a set heavy on his most balls-out rock songs and emphasized the most…

They take their time getting into town, setting up their gear, opening up a main riff. They enjoy themselves. There’s no rush about them or sense of impending doom, no fear of rejection. They’ve been playing together since their teens and they’re very comfortable on stage and off, both with each other and their fans.  And they’re young as hell. Probably not so young as other indie bands that burned bright quickly only to fade away (The RedWalls come to…

In an age where the digital reigns supreme and recordings run rampant over Bandcamp and SoundCloud, the scant releases by Beauty Pageant serve to emphasize the importance of live performance, a give and take between artist and audience that would be lost in a room full of microphones.

Roosevelt. One of the aspects of FDR’s unprecedented four national elections was the role music played in his campaigns. The years of FDR’s presidency were the high water mark of political campaign songs. Each of the four campaigns: 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944, had a distinctive flavor, featuring songs meant to inspire votes in favor of or against FDR. Over 400 songs dealing with…

    20 Oct 2014 | 9:16 am
    Last night, the premiere of Family Guy‘s season 13 episode 3 called “Baking Bad” premiered on television. During this episode, there was a Lil Wayne reference (and possibly an insult) made by Stewie Griffin after Brian Griffin gives him a capful of cough syrup. “Oh, so this is what Lil Wayne keeps almost dying from.” I know The Cleveland Show has referenced Weezy F Baby a few times in their show, but as far as I am aware, this is the first time that Weezy has been mentioned in Family Guy. You can watch the clip from last night below! Thanks to Richard for the…

    Billboard recently wrote an article about if we will ever see a music artist sell over 1 million copies of their album in the first week again. With the digital sales down to a new low in 2014, Billboard do not believe it will be done again even though two artists who have done it before both have albums dropping before the year ends. These two artists are Lil Wayne and Taylor Swift, who will be releasing their Tha Carter V and 1989 projects in 2014. Billboard have said that Taylor‘s album is projected to sell 750,000 copies in the first week and Wayne is projected to sell around…

    After picking part 1 for last week’s “Feature Friday” edition, it’s only right that this week’s “Feature Friday” installment is Mannie Fresh‘s “Wayne’s Takeover 2” track featuring Lil Wayne. Just like part 1, “Wayne’s Takeover 2” is more of a solo Weezy record as Fresh is only talking on the outro. The song can be found on The Mind Of Mannie Fresh album that was released back in 2004. “They call me Weezy F Baby, women wanna suck all on my pacifier; And if she tell ya she didn’t, homie that’s…

While “Girl in a Band: A Memoir” promises to look at all aspects of Gordon’s life – from childhood to her latest music project, Body/Head – the book will also explore the idea of partnership: what it means, and more so, “what happens when it dissolves,” says the press release. Presumably, alluding to the end of Gordon’s 27- year marriage with former Sonic Youth bandmate, Thurston…

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

    Tim Dickinson
    16 Oct 2014 | 9:05 am
    Walrus favourites and obscure indie-psych four-piece Gengahr are back with another track, Bathed In Light, which forms the flipside of the bands debut single Powder. Bathed in Light is a breezey, dream-like sequence that always feels on edge of heading into a psychedelic nightmare, but the band manage to reel it in and keep the track as a slice of spooky indiepop. Powder is getting a limited 7″ release by the fine folks at Transgressive on 27th October, but you can buy the MP3s now at iTunes.

    Brighton electronic trio DrDr are back with a four track EP on Glyph Recordings. Struggling is the follow-up to Take It Lying Down released last year and clearly shows that the group has evolved to a much more mature sound. This is best expressed in the seemingly meticulously care they’ve put into the title track. First, there’s Donna Curson’s emotional delivery finely articulated with that cowbell-like synth in their customary deep house setting. As the song appears to draw to an end – with the same loop that’s heard in the beginning – it unpredictably…

Billed as a "puppet show," I remember being skeptical about seeing Berlioz' hour-long masterpiece turned into some kind of phantasmagoria.

    Last we saw Ariel Pink last month he was pushing an old guy around a mall in the video for “Put Your Number In My Phone.” The prolific Pink’s 10th full-length “pom pom” is due out next month, and today he shares a new song, “Black Ballerina,” a bizarre talk-sing electro number that manages to sound a little like both Land of the Loops and Devo. “pom pom” is out November 11 on 4AD.

  • Led Zeppelin loses first round of ‘Stairway to Heaven’ plagiarism lawsuit

    Alex Moore
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:31 pm
    Led Zeppelin is getting sued for allegedly plagiarizing “Stairway to Heaven,” and it doesn’t look like they’re going to get off easy by requesting the case be dismissed out of hand.The lawsuit dates back to May of this year—at least as an active suit. Really it dates back about 46 years or so to when Randy California of the band Spirit first heard the now-iconic opening lick of “Stairway.” Led Zeppelin had toured with Spirit and had heard them play their song “Taurus” plenty of times. While legend has it that Jimmy Page wrote the…
  • Lorde’s ‘Royals’ banned in San Francisco during World Series

    Alex Moore
    20 Oct 2014 | 9:31 am
    The World Series kicks off tomorrow night with San Francisco’s Giants taking on the Kansas City Royals. San Francisco won in 2010 and 2012, so if they won in 2014 they’d be setting something of a precedent for winning every other year. That’s the kind of superstition you need some rituals to support, and the Giants apparently are getting right down to it: The team asked San Francisco radio stations to not play “Royals” By Lorde during the world series so as to please the baseball gods. And the radio stations are complying.Or at least two of them are. KFOG was…
  • James Blunt admits his ‘You’re Beautiful’ song is annoying as hell

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:45 am
    There are few songs more cringeworthy than James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful.” Like, maybe “You’re Having My Baby,” “Feelings,” “Young Girl,” and that terrifying Clay Aiken song about how if he was invisible he would sneak into your room and just stare at you like a creepy weirdo stalker.True story, the first I ever heard of it was when my mom called me to tell my that she heard it on some late night show and “thought she was having a seizure.”It is truly a horrific song. I attempted to listen to it for the purposes…

    After years of pressure from the music industry and some governments, Google has finally caved and altered its search engine to demote sites offering illegal media downloads. Long criticized for making music and movie pirating far too simple, the company has rolled out a number of changes to try and promote legal avenues for media acquisition.In a new report the company posted online, the core of the changes comes in the fact that legal services like Netflix, Spotify, iTunes and others will appear in a highlighted box at the top of search results.

    On of the most common pieces of advice you will see being given to any ukulele beginner is to always try the instrument out before you buy it. But that really isn't always possible for some people and they revert to buying online. Are there any pitfalls here? What can you expect?The opening piece of advice is completely sound. Despite what uke you have your heart set on, playing a few ukuleles in a shop may well change your mind, and it will also allow you to inspect the build, consider how it plays to YOUR fingers and ears. It certainly vastly reduces the chances of  issues later on.

  • Jayma & Dalex – De Frente

    8 Oct 2014 | 3:57 pm
    Reggaeton as a genre is very much that kid who was popular in high school during the mid-2000s, but is now a bit lost and lacking direction. From my perspective the problem is that there was minimal innovation around the dembow percussion beat, the vocals were drenched in effects (autotune, anyone?), and listeners became more conscious about the lyrics. The one positive benefit I see in the decline of reggaeton is that today’s smaller listener base can only support a limited number of artists, which forces them to bring more originality to the music or risk falling off the map.

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:43 pm
    Not since Reptar first came onto the scene have I heard anything as eccentric as 20 Eyes. These guys are all over the place with their sound, and it’s awesome! They’ve got this style that’s completely contemporary but seems to pull inspiration from ’90s alt rock bands. Nada Surf and The Offspring come to mind. You know, that pop-rock influenced sound with a punk mentality, bursting with energy and a carefree attitude that can only come out of California. There are even elements of Of Montreal’s showmanship sprinkled around somewhere in there. Yeah, 20 Eyes is…

    A few weeks ago, when Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq won the Polaris Prize with her album Animism, Canada’s annual award for the country’s best full-length album of the year, it got me curious as to what other talent might be found in the North – both in Canada and beyond. I mean, that’s some pretty strong Arctic fire-power to be able to beat out Arcade Fire, Drake, and Mac DeMarco, among others. Tanya Tagaq, who is from Nunavut, admits, “It feels like I dial in another frequency. I go to places where I surrender to all that terrifies and excites me.” It sounds like it…
  • BAILE – Head to Heart

    1 Oct 2014 | 8:24 pm
    It’s been a long wait, but BAILE‘s debut EP is finally here. We were recently treated to a couple of tracks (Don’t Worry and Manic) when the From the Depths EP was announced, and now we’re getting to hear Head to Heart. Much like the rest of BAILE’s catalog, this new one features a nice, chilled out vibe with a hypnotic instrumental and moody vocal samples for added atmosphere. I think it might actually be BAILE singing on this one, which is new to me after a long string of remixes. I’m digging it. The From the Depths EP is out now through Color Station.

    So I’ve been slacking, because this new Halsey single released almost a week ago and I missed out on it. Following songs like Ghost and New Americana, Hurricane has its own distinct sound yet fits in nicely along with the previously mentioned tracks. Halsey’s style is completely drenched in contemporary youth culture which makes her music so universally appealing. Listening to one of her songs is like scrolling through a random Tumblr feed. You never know what’s going to roll past your screen next. There’s just layers upon layers of influences and styles mixed into…

    Curated by Stephen I remember starting this journey for The Record Stache a couple of years ago now. Thinking about what would be a cool idea every week, that’s when The Sweet Five started. I based the whole concept around Frank Ocean’s track The Sweet Life (which of course featured in the first ever edition). It was something that I could contribute week after week, with different types of music for everyone to enjoy. Today marks one hundred editions of The Sweet Five, and I couldn’t be prouder of getting to this milestone. So I thought I would treat you, with The Sweet…

  • Remembering the Life of Ed Sullivan

    13 Oct 2014 | 6:09 pm
    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…

    All of us at The Ed Sullivan Show and SOFA Entertainment are deeply saddened by the passing of the legendary comedian Joan Rivers. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Joan got her start playing the café’s of Greenwich Village before becoming a staple of television in the 1960s. She made numerous appearances on The Tonight Show, first with Jack Parr, and then with longtime host Johnny Carson, becoming a staple of late night television. Joan Rivers had a very special relationship to The Ed Sullivan Show. Not only did she make 19 appearances on the program, she also wrote lines for another beloved…

    The Ed Sullivan Show would like to wish a very happy 70th birthday to the first lady of Motown, Diana Ross! Many musical acts broke into the mainstream on the Sullivan stage. Elvis, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones are just a few of the names that come to mind. As big as those performances were, there was a group that made more appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show than all of those acts put together. With 18 appearances, Diana Ross and The Supremes stood tall above all other pop performers as one of Sullivan’s most ubiquitous guests. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, the teenage Ross…

Though not widely known, Stuart Sutcliffe was an original member of The Beatles, playing bass in the group’s early years. John Lennon and Stuart were art school friends and after he sold one of his paintings was encouraged to buy a musical instrument: either bass or drums as the band was in need of both. 3.

    Earth Wind and FireDo you remember the movie “The Bucket List” starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman? The plot was two older men facing death soon creating a list of things they wanted to accomplish before their demise (or kick the bucket). I think we all could identify with the situation regardless of our age or health. It is a human trait to achieve particular goals, large and small, throughout out lives. I must say that last week was one of those moments in my life. Last Wednesday I went to a live performance of my longtime favorite musical group Earth Wind and Fire. This was not…

We did lose a legendary and brilliant jazz artist September 14, 2014 in Joe Sample. As a key member of the Jazz Crusaders, Joe Sample along with the rest of the group placed a deep footprint upon the jazz community. I never knew any of the Crusaders to be particularly loquacious, as they all seemed to be humble artists who let their music do most of the talking.

    G.R.L.In our everyday experience of life, the absolute worst tragedy has to be death. Of course, accidental or sudden death that catches us off guard, may depress us a little more than death after a long illness. We also might view the death of children with more sadness than the death of older ones. However, most persons I speak with on the subject are particularly disturbed by the death of young, promising musicians before their talent is fully realized. It seems as if we all were deprived of something and someone very special. I’m sure we all can recall countless talented people who were…

In fact, it might even be true when thinking about associates, and/or acquaintances. Of course most of us understand the difference between real friends, and those we associate with via school, workplace and sometimes business. Sometimes I reflect upon my high school years as I approached graduation. The feeling of happiness and accomplishment were tempered because I was moving far away from home, where high school classmates and even…

    It's time for a look inside another classic hit. This time it's the isolated vocals from The Beatle's masterpiece album Abbey Road with the Ringo centerpiece "Octopus's Garden." Let's take a close look at the vocals. The quality isn't that great (it sounds like it's the isolated center channel derived from a vinyl record), but you still get the idea.1. Ringo has an interesting vocal trait in that the end of each phrase is always a little flat.2. The vocals are bone dry.3. Listen to the vocal double on the B-section. It's not very closely matched, but still does the job.4. The harmony…

This was all hip-hop without a whiff of Azonto. In his words, “your mean muggin’ don’t mean nothin.” With a title like Best African Rapper (B.A.R), this is E.L at his most assertive, cocksure best. I don’t know about the self-assigned Best African Rapper title, but E.L. sure does make a compelling argument for that proclamation. He employs the copious amounts of bluster typical of rappers as he finds his…

Life had changed our plans, and although we willing accepted the changes in our career plans and our move to Southern Mississippi, the extra responsibilities caused me to rethink some priorities and the radio show AND blog went by the wayside.     There were attempts on my part to re-ignite the blog by setting up a new site and domain name, but just couldn't get the mojo working again. A friend of mine said to me several years…

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

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

  • Cull- Magi Fuel

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Sydney, Australia-based psych-gaze outfit Cull is back with another powerful song full of cosmic noise. Magi Fuel shies away from the hazy, shoegaze sound featured in last year's Bà Nội EP while finding solace in neo-psych-pop arrangements and gargantuan drum and bass-bloated grooves. It's a song that shows a band ready to breakout from under the loft bed to sit atop festival stages. 
  • LA Font- Bright Red Flame

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    Combining arching guitars, infectious arrangements, danceable bass lines, and lead singer Danny Bobbe's distinct vocals, Los Angeles-based foursome LA Font craft intriguing pop songs that stick to the brain. The most recent taste of their upcoming 2-on-1 cassette release (featuring their first two full length albums, The American Leagues and Diving Man) is the rollicking "Bright Red Flame," a song full of pulsing rhythms and "jangly, fret-sliding, string-bending guitars blasting full-steam ahead."Get the cassette here.

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

    By Siren D Thanksgiving is around the corner and it’s the time of year we are reminded to reflect on the things we are thankful for in life (I have many to choose from, living here in Canada).  Music is always a thought in my head, whether its conscious or subconscious, it’s never too far away in my mind, so while giving thanks, I thought about those ever important people who were the pioneers in their musical genre. Its hard to call any one individual the founder of a type of music as music is as old as mankind itself. We may never know who the original creators were but we can…

Her writing illustrates a traveling, black-tented circus that only opens at night. Using magic (unbeknownst to the naïve and stunned 19th century English), the Night Circus travels around, creating a phantasmagorical oasis from whatever frosted barley fields it pops up from. This was what Nightfest was like; a temporary mix of flora and illumination coming together to amaze children and adults alike. Fire breathers, mimes and…

In fact, it is to your advantage to recommend new tracks to your sibling, otherwise you’re just stuck listening to “Aeroplane” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers on repeat. I also love all the background noises on this song. Listen closely! Maybe it’s the fact that I’m writing this in the middle of the Quebec…

    “Hey, let’s jam.” Do those words strike fear into your heart? Does your little internal ukulele player start saying things like, What if I don’t know the song? What if I don’t know the chords? What if I don’t know the strum pattern? What if someone looks at me and says, “Take it!”? Yes, there is much to fear when ...

    Radio Crowdfund

  • That’s a Wrap: Music Crowdfunding is Toast

    9 Oct 2014 | 4:04 pm
    It’s been a great run, but the time has come to close down the Radio Crowdfund shop. I simply can’t find decent music on Kickstarter or Indiegogo any longer and PledgeMusic is a thinly veiled old school record label doing a great job of administering album pre-sales and laying off the development costs on the bands and artists they carefully select to participate. And I can’t find any good music there, either. Bottom line is that I feel like I’ve witnessed the rise and fall of music crowdfunding over the last 18 months. It used to be easy to find great new artists and…
  • Dead Air, Bike Thief, Flannel Graph

    2 Oct 2014 | 8:00 pm
    #77. Zero, zip, nada. Nothing worth reviewing this week — over 700 campaigns on Kickstarter, a few hundred more on Indiegogo. All shyte. So… this post contains two great songs by bands previously reviewed here who have crowdfunded their latest music, both efforts released in the last month. Let’s see what happens next week. First, let’s check out campaign updates, see who’s made it and who needs it. NOT QUITE YET > HARE AND THE HOUNDS: $2480 of $2500, 1 day. Who’s got a twenty? > MARIE DANIELLE:  $2200 of $2500, 9 days.

    25 Sep 2014 | 7:56 pm
    #76. It was nip and tuck until literally a few hours ago. Over 700 campaigns on Kickstarter and nothing was coming even close. And don’t get me started on Crowdfunded Creations that have yet to be freakin’ created, after many months and many thousands of $$$. But… I finally found a very fresh flower (sorry for the Fs) — only two songs on Soundcloud to her credit. And I’ve got Here Comes the Reign! Indie bands cover ’80s British classics? You don’t want to miss this. Let’s check out campaign updates, see who’s made it and who needs it. IN…
  • Flannel Graph, Hare and the Hounds

    18 Sep 2014 | 5:29 pm
    #75. Hmph. Tough week in the wilderness, a lot of very marginal music on Kickstarter in particular, but I can’t let Indiegogo go without a flame: ooofff for most of the campaigns there, too. Soooo… a one-and-one this time around — the music from the AMAZING Flannel Graph should be more than enough for two. Hare and the Hounds not too shabby either, so I’m happy with the quality control on this post. As always, thanks to all the artists in advance for letting me use photos and allowing me to embed your wonderful, original music. Let me know if credit is due for photos.

    Paul Schomer #74. A relatively pleasant week in the wilderness. The return of a mid-90s Boston pop band, a singer/songwriter guy out of Charlottesville, and something completely different different from the big city. That’s the idea this week, so listen up right. As always, thanks to all the artists in advance for letting me use photos and allowing me to embed your wonderful, original music. Let me know if credit is due for photos.

His debut album, Daylight Robbery, touches upon these very experiences through stories of inequality, persecution, hope, and love of oneself and others with gripping song-based compositions and spoken word passages that attempt to call attention to and salve such frustrations.

    Tense nervous headache? Tough day in the office? The kids are still up and it’s gone 20:30? I think i may have just the thing for you and for once it doesn’t come in a bottle. 25 year old Hertfordshire musician Rhodes is set to release his second EP ‘Home’ on October 19th and it’s soothing content is just the tonic for such day-to-day dramas. While the tracks offer a sense of tranquility they also lend to a fairly sombre affair. There are no tracks here that demand slick dance floor moves or a jagger-esque stage swagger but clearly that’s not what…

  • U2 didn't profit from download

    20 Oct 2014 | 11:34 am
    U2 "didn't earn much" from their new album. The Irish rockers gave away 'Songs Of Innocence' to iTunes users because they felt their fans "deserved" to have the record for free, and admit even Apple were shocked by the scale of their generosity. Frontman Bono explained: "It is a very difficult time for songwriters because people download music in an illegal way. Apple wanted people pay to for music and we really appreciate it. We spoke to Apple and we decided to do a gift to those who purchase music on iTunes." "We shared the whole album and Apple were quite shocked about it. I said to them…

    In the world of twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, it may seem like email is old news akin to saving your work to a floppy disk (and if you don't know what that is then that only further proves my point). That assumption though is, frankly, wrong and if you're not taking advantage of email for marketing, you should reconsider.

  • Vin Deca - a postive and ardent electronic and dance music composer

    Steven Fies
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:00 pm
    Vin Deca is a positive ardent electronic and dance music composer, producer and artist with an unmistakable afro-latin influence currently recording dance, pop, Afro-, latin-, deep-, electro-, and progressive house. Working as a songwriter, composer, producer and mix engineer in Germany since 2002, confining only to one genre or style of music has been out of question for the Cameroonian born keyboardist and bass guitarist. Even though four on the floor has always been default for his musical programming, it was not until 2013 that he decided to make his ancient love affair with dance music…
  • 2KX's release of Sussuration is a hit after their 2-year break

    Steven Fies
    13 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    2KX is a highly intriguing band whose music reaches out and grabs you the very first time you hear it.  And not in a heavy metal loud sort of way, but in a more sophisticated manner.  The composition combines several complex elements of musical production to achieve an almost nostalgic effect, throwing me back in time as I travel through that which is Sussuration.The guitar solo from 1:39 - 2:19 really caught my attention, since it has classical elements that remind me of Michael Angelo Batio (one of my favorite guitar teachers of all time) and fits the space so perfectly.  It…

On tour with Rise Against was Touché Amoré and Radkey, two bands I’d never heard of before this tour was announced.First up on stage was Radkey, a three piece band of brothers, Dee Radke (Guitar/Vocals), Isaiah J.

  • The Science Behind the Proximity Effect with Microphones

    Steven Fies
    27 Sep 2014 | 8:30 pm
    Understanding The Proximity EffectDon't get too close...!The Proximity Effect describes how bass frequencies build up as we bring cardioid or bidirectional microphones closer to a sound source.  Many dynamic, condenser, and ribbon microphones fall into one of these categories.  Primarily affecting frequencies below 100 Hz, up to 16 dB of proximity-related boost can occur when the microphone is placed very close to the source.This apparent bass "boost" results from a combination of two things: the deliberate decrease in microphone transformer output at high frequencies, and the…

For awhile, Zimmerman wasn’t arrested. During the time civil rights leaders marched peacefully through Sanford, Harrison changed. He turned anti-rap.

  • Thom Yorke’s Self-Release is Out of Touch With Consumers

    9 Oct 2014 | 6:51 am
    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…

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

Last week it was reported that two jazz musicians—Eric Reed and Willie Jones III—were suing Lamar for using unauthorized samples in his 2011 hit “Rigamortis.” According to Reed and Jones, “Rigamortis” is nothing more than a looped sample of their own tune “The Thorn,” which was released on their 2010 album, The Next Phase. While lawsuits over samples are nothing new, this particular one grabbed my attention…

    Philadelphia's "heavy-shoegaze" Nothing, return with "July The Fourth" from a split release with Whirr.It's really hard to dislike Nothing, especially when they're probably the only band out there, who've managed to take the pretty drab at times shoegaze and show us that there's life beyond those very rigid but powerful walls-of-sound. After listening to "July The Fourth", debut LP Guilty of Everything sounds even more like the beginning of a progression, likely to be every bit as epic as the music they're currently making.Read More »

Lefsetz wrote a short history on how the last 20 years in film/TV and music has put us squarely into the rental/streaming of our entertainment vs. owning our music, movies and TV shows. Although Beats Music is not mentioned, his post, ‘Netflix vs. Spotify’ lays out how visual entertainment has been training customers for decades to pay a monthly subscription to “rent” film/TV while music stayed with the ‘own-it’ model well into the 21st century.

Conveniently, payments were processed through your AT&T phone bill. The offering ended today (see AT&T chat thread below). Beats Music no longer offers a subscription through AT&T. The Beats Music website no longer has an option to subscribe through AT&T and it appears the 5 account Family Plan for $14.99 is no longer available either.

Most music services are streaming music at 320 kbps, whereas their offering will be flac files at 1,411 kbps (essentially streaming at CD quality). Whether this strategy enables Deezer and Tidal to get a substantial customer base is yet to be determined. Yet offering much higher quality audio might nudge the existing services (Spotify, Beats Music, Rdio, etc.) to start moving toward streaming higher quality audio too. This would be a big victory for the…

As EP’s go, this has to be one of the better ones out there in terms of style and production. You would hardly believe this is from a band who are still working on their debut album as we speak. On first listen you would assume they have been around a while already, ok they were formed back in 2009, but they already feel like a band well established.

    I find setting small goals extremely useful. The word "small" is not even accurate, as achieving small goals is simply the path to achieve bigger ones. Think about the guitar playing, for example. I started with small goals, and the I developed better skills in time. Whatever I am practicing the approach is always the same.Now, pay attention to your feelings! Anytime you feel like you are struggling, it means that the step you are trying to make is too big. It's like push-ups. Once I've done 100/120 push-ups, my job for the day is done. It makes no sense to do anymore than that, I've found it…

    Dream Theater are widely-regarded as the undisputed kings of progressive metal, but the genre-defining pioneers have had to embark on a rocky road over their 30-year existence to get to the top. The band have been thrown their fair share of curve balls over the journey, but the one they were confronted with four years ago dwarfed anything that the famed instrumental section from their classic song ‘Metropolis Pt. 1: The Miracle And The Sleeper’ could throw up. Forget the turbulent decade of the 90s which almost saw constant bickering with record labels bring about their premature demise…

      Billy Corgan has released the first track from Smashing Pumpkins’ forthcoming album, Monuments To An Elegy. Entitled “Being Beige”, it’s an emotive number whose sparse acoustic beginnings eventually bloom and give way to a rich, rousing chorus. “The world’s on fire,” Corgan sings repeatedly, as a mix of drums (supplied by none other than Tommy Lee) and guitars crash and burn behind him. Listen below. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Corgan said of the track, “People always ask me to explain songs, and honestly I can’t. But if there’s honesty in this lyric, it’s that…

    Jet Setter come from Dublin. Jet Setter play loud guitars. Jet Setter are damn good. They’ve been compared to The Replacements, Dinosaur Jr, The Smashing Pumpkins, and The Strokes. High praise indeed. For me, they sound like a staple of the 80s American college rock scene fronted by a less morose Ian Curtis. The track is just over two minutes, but is a jaunty and playful lo-fi gem that will have you singing along after about half a listen: “First time I didn’t know what to do…” The new single “Dippin’ Toes” was released on October 17th through…

Apologies. Speaking of Yuck, you really have no choice but to admire their perseverance. It’s not every band that could survive the departure of a founding member, singer and songwriter as the London based shoegaze/indie/noise rockers did when Daniel Blumberg left the group in April 2013. Not only did Yuck survive, but they also returned with a slightly stylistically different second…

Action Bronson and Party Supplies have proved themselves as an unstoppable team with the Blue Chips series. Despite plenty of great production collaborators, Bronson always seems most at home on the unique work of Supplies, and their new track is no exception. Technically a Party Supplies-fromted record, both Bronson and Black Atlass provide vocals, but as usual Action is the centre of attention here. His colorful rhymes quickly turn to a bluesy croon, which he…

  • Live review: Blonde Redhead @ Islington Assembly Hall, London

    Alex Durham
    4 Oct 2014 | 3:51 am
    A two decade dance Anyone who waited patiently for the release of Blonde Redhead’s September album Barragán, with a mixture of heady expectancy and churning anxiety, may understand my comparison of the initial experience to a detached, sombre waltz with flaccid art pop. After experiencing the band’s performance huddled together with several hundred at a sold out show in Islington’s Assembly Hall, Kazu Makino, Amadeo and Simone Pace have managed to convince me – and those who shared the experience – that it was a dance worth committing to. Though Blonde Redhead span 21…

    Falling into the category of musicians-who-once-released-albums-on-a-semi-regular-basis-only-to-stop-abruptly-coming-back-decades-later, is now Aphex Twin. After about 13 years of what seems to be a stint in solitary confinement, Syro was released, much to our excitement and appreciation! Aphex Twin, real name Richard D. James, is the latest to emerge from what was such an uncharacteristic break from the world of electronic music. Having released 5 albums in the decade prior, Syro is his first release since 2001’s Drukqs. After such a long break from recording and releasing music it’s…

    Rundrum EP by Midland Sparks Rundrum is the debut EP by Midland SparksThe three tracks are seemingly an experiment in electronica as Midland Sparks try to establish their sound, which is a mix of forceful and fast-paced industrial sounds, sometimes ethereal chord progressions, lulling beats and maybe a siren or two thrown in there for good measure. The style is formed around the basics of drum & bass music, drawing influences from a plethora of genres such as footwork, halfstep, hip hop, trap etc.; it exists seamlessly in the 170 BPM tempo bracket to create a sound that is fast, fresh…

    After 12 days waiting for review, 60 Top Hat Piano Grooves Free version 1.2 is now ready for sale. The user has now the option of purchasing a preferred groove module. For example: If you’d like to access all the Rock & Pop grooves only, you may do so by purchasing only that module. I think this will be a nice feature on the free version since the user already has access to two grooves for every single style.

    17 Oct 2014 | 12:00 am
    With two weeks left to go, Suwannee Hulaween has released its 2014 schedule, with an emphasis put on a few overlapping sets as possible. Which is frankly a difficult task considering the inordinate amount of talent filling the fall festivals' bill. Thievery Corporation, Big Gigantic, Beats Antique, The New Deal, Shpongle (Simon Posford DJ Set), Emancipator, and so many more decorate this monster roster, along with seven total sets from hosts The String Cheese Incident. A silent disco also lets the music go late, some of our absolute favorites like Thibault, Ployd, and Marc Freccero.

The only song that could dislodge his Daft Punk collaboration Get Lucky from the public consciousness was Blurred Lines, which he produced and sang on for Robin Thicke. The song that finally displaced that? His own hit Happy, of course. Welcome to our list of All-Stars, Pharrell. Born: 5 April 1973 Beginnings: Pharrell’s first ever credit was for writing a verse on Wreckx-N-Effect’s hit Rump Shaker. The…

Suddenly, nothing else mattered except that precious extra time you’d have on your hands – and nothing beat that feeling of freedom once you had it.
