    17 Jul 2014 | 11:46 pm
    “Pistolgrip Pump” is one of my favorite L.A. hip-hop songs and now Eric Ducker has written a thorough history of how the song came to be (and truly, the many ways in which it could have NOT come to be). Great music journalism at work here.(Also a sobering reminder of how the song ended up defining Volume 10′s style as something that was actually quite different from what it actually was. Listen to practically anything else on the album and his Good Life bonafides are instantly obvious).

    Radiohead are a democratic band by all accounts, and drummer Philip Selway seems like a nice guy who would never say something horrible like "it's Selway or the highway!" at band meetings. He gets to make all the decisions, however, on his new solo album, Weatherhouse, which will be out via Bella Union on October 7. That's the cover art above. Get an early taste via the very arty music video for lead track "Coming Up for Air" which was directed by Spanish film collective NYSU. Watch it below.

    Twitch is an odd seeming thing, a platform primarily for live streaming video gameplay, that is incredibly popular. Since at least May various reports have it that Google is buying them. So far it's only been confirmed by "sources" and it's hard to say what that would really mean for Twitch. But there are lots of people watching Twitch and though there is music on the site in various forms, yesterday they supported their first official livestreamed concert featuring dj Steve Aoki.

Martini fuses edgy hip-hop with smooth and tender rhythms, her quick and punchy lyrical delivery of the lines often rounded off with dream-sweepingly sweet notes.

She has a natural flow of positive energy on-stage, which has recently landed her support…
  • Review: J.E. Sunde - Shapes That Kiss The Lips Of God [Album]

    1 Aug 2014 | 6:15 am
    The solo project. Something to be welcomed with open arms or feared like the plague. To me it seems that every man and his dog are leaving bands to explore new pastures on their own; everyone’s done it. But how many have done it well? J.E Sunde is another of said solo projects, and whether such a feat has been tackled, only his debut record Shapes That Kiss The Lips Of God can tell. The new found modern troubadour was once member to The Daredevil Christopher Wright, completed by his brother and close friend, and found mild success on the road in the U.S, Canada and Europe. But along the…
  • Review: Definitely A First - Colorblind [Album]

    BenG_Writes
    1 Aug 2014 | 5:44 am
    Why do tribute bands exist? We don't ask to be mean, but it must be a pretty surreal experience being in a band that is dedicated entirely to playing someone else's music, performing as a character rather than expressing your own emotions. It's kind of like an omission that you have no ambition of your own, and that you're happy getting through life convincing people you're somebody else. Likewise, for the fans, tribute acts can be fun, but just like an e-cigarette or playing with yourself, it just doesn't quite match up to the real thing. So, when you hear a band playing songs that could…

  • Selena Gomez Is Allegedly Dropping A Greatest Hits Album In December

    Talk about the gift that keeps on giving! Selena Gomez is apparently dropping a greatest hits album in December — at least according to producer Edgar Cortazar, who worked with the 22-year-old on a Spanish language version of “A Year Without Rain”. This comes after months of speculation that Sel is releasing the compilation as a contractual obligation. While nothing has been officially confirmed, the prospect of a ‘best of’ collection is actually pretty appealing as long as Selena throws in a couple of new songs. After all, she has already notched up eight platinum…

Produced by ex-husband and The Lion And The Cobra collaborator John Reynolds, “Take Me To Church” finds Sinead coming to terms with her past and embracing the here and now. (It’s also her catchiest…

    Becky G has already conquered pop radio and iTunes with breakthrough hit “Shower”, which climbed to a new peak of number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. Next stop on the 17-year-old’s agenda is clubland. Her irresistible anthem has been overhauled by the ever-reliable Jump Smokers and is now the perfect addition to your workout playlist. “Shower” is one of those songs that could probably be covered by a death metal band and still sound adorable. As such, there’s no risk of the Chicago DJs diminishing the unstoppable earworm’s appeal by…

    31 Jul 2014 | 3:35 pm
    If you're not familiar with Snooker, this video is all about attempts to stay alive in a frame. In each of the games shown, there are 13 points left (pink is 6, black is 7), and the shooter is usually behind by more than 13 points*. The pink ball has to be hit first; failure to do so results in a foul, which means 6** points to your opponent and play passes to them. What the shooter is trying to do in every case is stay alive by hitting the pink without potting (pocketing) it and leaving his opponent snookered (meaning there's no clear shot on the object ball) in the hopes of gaining the…

  • Roses – “The Fog”

    Stereogum
    1 Aug 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Roses introduced themselves with an earworm of a guitar riff in “Florence Girls” (followed by the also-great “It’s Over“). Their newest song, “The Fog,” opens with another memorable guitar melody, but it’s one that plays slower, sadder, and comes backed by some bleary synths. This makes three good songs we’ve heard off the band’s upcoming 4-song Dreamlover EP, so it’s pretty safe to say that release will be worthy of your time. Listen to “The Fog” below, and if you’re in New York, catch them any night this…

The announcement did not state whether Liberty Media, the majority holder of SiriusXM share would participate in the program, but did list it as an option. If Liberty does not participate its ownership percentage would increase as shares are removed from the market.  I anticipate that Liberty Media and SiriusXM will negotiate some transactions that could buy back shares from Liberty.

    Allison Johnelle Boron

    Everything old is new again. Jay Brown is an artist living a kind of dual existence. On one hand, he’s a seasoned singer/songwriter, having cut his chops in bands like the Lazybirds. His experience comes through in his world-weary lyrics and simplistic style, both of which completely complement one another. But, on the other side, he conjures images of Appalachian tradition and backwoods blues and country from another generation, almost as if he’s possessed by the spirits of crooners before him. What this forms when combined is a complete package of modernity and timelessness, and…

    1 Aug 2014 | 6:13 am
    Maybe it’s because it’s when I first discovered Dylan, but I’ve always had a soft spot for his much-maligned ’80s output. I was still an impressionable college sophomore when a friend gave me a mixtape of Dylan songs in an attempt to win me over into the Order of Bob, and he was ecumenical about his choices — he included then-recent songs like “Jokerman” right alongside ’60s tracks like “Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again.” Sure, you could tell which ones were newer by the general croakiness of Bob’s nasally whine, but I think coming at them without…
  • A Fan’s Notes: Newport Folk Festival 2014

    Ken Shane
    1 Aug 2014 | 5:11 am
    I’ve had my doubts about the Newport Folk Festival over the last few years. It was mostly about me, and the strong feeling that the festival had passed me by as it seemed to be programmed for a younger crowd. That and the fact that a number of the acts that played were part of what I call the “faux folk” movement, which I think lacks any authenticity. I believe, as Louis Armstrong once said, that all music is folk music. So I don’t care what the sound is, just make it genuine. Convince me that you believe in what you’re doing. This year I decided to just put my…

    The story so far: The unexpected appearance of Allison’s sister, Teri, convinced her to stay at Eric’s party a while longer. Maybe there’s still time to save the night. Maybe. The year is 1987. ALLISON In the family room, Hope and Courtney are carrying Mary out of the house through the back. The three of them are so drunk that they’re bumping into furniture and knocking over things. Mary’s laugh carries in from the patio, and the music suddenly stops. “Dude!” someone yells. There is an outburst of laughter before the back door slams. Without the stereo playing, all you hear is…

    photo by Chad Syme (view set) It’s only fitting that he’s on a record label called Truth & Soul Records, because that’s exactly the kind of music the legendary Lee Fields creates. The 63-year-old music veteran is still going strong after 43 years in the business, and his most recent release, Emma Jean, is just as vital as ever. “I waited forty years for these guys,” Fields tells DJ Greg Vandy, indicating his backing band, The Expressions (including label founder Leon Michels on saxophone).

    Forget fancy effects or sophisticated plug-ins – day-in, day-out, it’s those simple MIDI modules you wind up using again and again and again and again. It’s like having a bucket of paperclips on your desk. It doesn’t have to be exciting. It’s the simple stuff that gets used. So, one of my favorite demos from the jam-packed sessions at MIDI Hack Day in Stockholm in May was unquestionably Midular. The idea was simple: make some basic modules that do stuff to notes and control events, then combine them in useful ways. It deserved an ovation. And now, you can get…

    Here, in the season so many associate with sun and sand, the gothic factories of dark techno continue to clang away. So, yes, the results may not be cheery. But the music defining this new generation of adventurous techno is uniquely focused on timbre. It is a soundscape set against the groove, not only about tweaking just the right high hat, but forging some terrain of sonic design, taking the listener on a journey to actually find something new. It makes landfall on undiscovered countries, rather than simply assembling an expected framework for the dancefloor. It also carries with it some…

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

  • Wilco To Only Play A Handful Of Shows In 2014

    31 Jul 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Earlier this week Wilco announced a pair of September shows in Ohio that in addition to two performances at the Lockn' Festival are the only Wilco gigs on the books for 2014. What does the rest of the year hold for Jeff Tweedy's main band? A note in a recent email from the group gives a bit of clarity. "More Wilco news from us shortly including info on a handful of other shows, but keep in mind...there will not be a proper Wilco tour this year," reads text within the latest Wilco e-mail alert. So, while we shouldn't be expecting the announcement of a fall tour, there will be "a handful of…
  • Throwback Thursday | The Eagles Implode In Long Beach

    31 Jul 2014 | 12:40 pm
    The Eagles are mostly known for their mellow brand of country-rock, so it's almost hard to believe the band imploded on-stage 34 years ago tonight in Long Beach, CA; at what would turn out to be their last gig until 1994. The Eagles were playing a benefit for the re-election campaign of California Senator Alan Cranston, which was put together by Frey. Felder wasn't happy about performing for a politician and made his feelings known. Don and Glenn traded threats throughout the gig. Felder recounts the situation in his auto-biography Heaven & Hell: My Life In The Eagles, "We walked onstage…

    While Furthur has been on hiatus, Bob Weir & RatDog have kept themselves extremely busy. The question now turns to whether Furthur will regroup for next year and beyond.

Bob Weir & RatDog will present Sunshine Daydream from January 19 - 23 at the Grand Lido Resort in Negril, Jamaica. Trigger Hippy will also make the trip to the Caribbean.

The band's debut EP will be out on Tuesday (8/5) on Group Tightner and they've just shared a third song, the dreamy/moody "The Fog." You can stream that, along with two other songs ("It's Over" is the real winner here) from the EP, below.

The band's performance was mature and assured, although lacking the latent spark of aggression that had originally marked it as such an exciting prospect. Occasionally there was a flicker of the Win Butler and co. of old, such as the wonderfully anarchic and incongruous modular synth solo…

In 2011, Butler persuaded the label to sign THEESatisfaction, an all-female Seattle r&b/soul/rap group, after they appeared on Shabazz Palaces’ 2013 debut album, Black Up.   Since then, Butler has signed on as an official A&R man for Sub Pop, and has made his first official signing the Seattle…

    1 Aug 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Dan Boeckner (Operators) Canadian guitarist and vocalist Dan Boeckner is a man who doesn’t like sitting still for too long. He’s been a part of four different indie bands since 2000 (Wolf Parade, Divine Fits, Handsome Furs, Atlas Strategic) and has totaled 12 releases between those projects during that time.   Well, it doesn’t seem like he’s getting ready to settle down any time soon. His fifth project, Operators, is set to debut next Tuesday. It’s certainly the most electronic and dancy work we’ve seen from Boeckner to date, and it’s already gained some traction…

    While some may believe that the CMJ editorial staff is a secret cabal that meets 217 feet underground somewhere in Staten Island on Friday morning to concoct a devious plan for our staff picks, really we just knock ‘em out individually after two-plus cups o’ joe. So twas a surprise to see two tracks that sound like classic songs and a cover tune within this list. Which once again might speak to the paucity of mid-summer releases. Hope everyone’s enjoying their vacations above ground!   Ab-Soul – To The Max Is there a better way to release a track then just saying…

    Twitch is an odd seeming thing, a platform primarily for live streaming video gameplay, that is incredibly popular. Since at least May various reports have it that Google is buying them. So far it's only been confirmed by "sources" and it's hard to say what that would really mean for Twitch. But there are lots of people watching Twitch and though there is music on the site in various forms, yesterday they supported their first official livestreamed concert featuring dj Steve Aoki.

Recently, YouTube's just resigned product head began consulting for Spotify, and a member of Google's inner circle just joined Spotify's board of directors.Job shifting and incestuous ties are common in high tech, but at the very least, to an outsider these moves seem ill-timed.  “Shiva has done so much to help grow YouTube into what it is today.

    Bruce Houghton
    1 Aug 2014 | 10:00 am
    Although many factors can drive song sales, a new Nielson study suggests that viral videos play an increasing role - sometimes dramatically. Sales of Katy Perry’s “Peacock” spiked 64% within a month after Stephen Kardynal released his viral “Chatroulette Version,” well after Perry released her album. Similarly, sales of Robyn’s 2011 single “Call Your Girlfriend” increased 12% a month after sister-duo Lennon & Maisy uploaded their acoustic cover in 2012. And these aren’t the only songs that have benefited from being featured in viral videos: from Nielson Related articles…

No reason for the outage has been given, so far; but it was not good news for the thousands of musicians hoping to give a last minute to push to their Friday night shows. It's also quite surprising for a company that has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on infrastructure in multiple locations. Stay tuned.

    1 Aug 2014 | 2:30 am
    By James Anderson Winn In 1701, one year before Princess Anne succeeded to the throne, musicians from London traveled to Windsor to perform a special ode composed for her birthday by the gifted young composer Jeremiah Clarke. The anonymous poet addressed part of his poem to the performers, taking note of Anne’s keen interest in music: Portrait of Anne of Great Britain by Charles Jervas, 1702-1714, Royal Collection, public domain via Wikimedia Commons. With song your tribute to her bring, Who best inspires you how to sing; None better claims your lays than she Whose very soul is Harmony. O…
  • Barry, Bond, and music on film

    Alice
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:30 am
    Twenty-seven years ago, on 31 July 1987, James Bond returned to the screen in The Living Daylights, with Timothy Dalton as the new Bond. The film has a notable departure in the style of music, as composer John Barry decided that the film needed a new sound to match this reinvented Bond, and his love interest — a musician with dangerous ties. To celebrate the anniversary, here is a brief extract from The Music of James Bond by Jon Burlingame. In the script, Bond is caught up in a complex plot involving high-ranking Soviet intelligence officer Koskov (Jeroen Krabbe) who is supposedly…

    When Leonard Bernstein first arrived in New York, he was unknown, much like the artists he worked with at the time, who would also gain international recognition. Bernstein Meets Broadway: Collaborative Art in a Time of War looks at the early days of Bernstein’s career during World War II, and is centered around the debut in 1944 of the Broadway musical On the Town and the ballet Fancy Free. This excerpt from the book describes the opening night of Fancy Free. When the curtain rose on the first production of Fancy Free, the audience at the old Metropolitan Opera House did not hear a…

    By Kirk Curnutt Ask folks who came of age in the 1980s what they remember about the movie Eddie and the Cruisers and one of the following responses is likely: It spawned the great rock-radio staple “On the Dark Side” and briefly made MTV stars of the improbably named John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. It was such a shameless Bruce Springsteen rip-off that Boss fans considered it as sacrilegious as devout Christians do Jesus Christ Superstar. It had a whiplash-inducing twist ending that Roger Ebert called “so frustrating, so dumb, so unsatisfactory that it gives a bad reputation to…
  • Debussy and the Great War

    Alice
    22 Jul 2014 | 1:30 am
    By Eric Frederick Jensen When war was declared in the summer of 1914, Claude Debussy was fifty-one. Widely regarded as the greatest living French composer, he lived in Paris in a fashionable, elegant neighborhood near the Bois de Boulogne. Politics had never held much interest for him, and as the movement toward war increased in both France and Germany, Debussy’s focus was on more personal matters. He worried about his growing debt, a result of consistently living beyond his means. And he was frightened by his lack of productivity: in the past few years he’d produced only a…

    My thoughtful husband alerted me to the fact that on a recent episode of the Victorian-Gothic series Penny Dreadful the Wild West character played by Josh Hartnett is so overcome by the strains of Tristan und Isolde, not to mention several glasses of absinthe, that he is inspired to begin making out with none other than Dorian Gray (portrayed by Reeve Carney, previously a singing Spider-Man). "I'd ask if you had heard of Wagner," Gray asks, "but you'd pretend you hadn't." Opera Fresh has more coverage of the show's saucy operatic goings-on.

One time I pleaded for information about Major John Kramers, who is mentioned in Strauss's diary. As I report in this New Yorker blog post, I finally know more about him: Dr. Carl Ellenberger, of Mount Gretna PA, interviewed Kramers some years ago about his meeting with Strauss, and in 2012 reported his findings on the blog of the chamber-music series Gretna Music.

  • 3-Step Process To Singing In Tune: Listen, Mime, Sing!

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

Certain genres are by nature 'scoopier' than others.To help reach a note. Yep. Admit it.How to tell you scoop too much (too often, too deeply) when you sing:Your listeners get seasick.Your producer gets agitated.Your pitch swims like a warped record (lps, you know...

  • Songwriter Vocal Strain: Hazards of Singing While Writing Songs

    Judy Rodman
    1 Jun 2014 | 7:32 am
    Unless the song is an instrumental, the act of songwriting requires a lot of singing during the creative process. Many times your passion for the piece will take you the extremes of your vocal range. If you are a songwriter or co-writer who creates melody lines, you may have experienced vocal fatigue while writing. It's not usually imminently dangerous for your voice as long as you have good recovery time the next day, but if your voice is important to you, why risk more vocal strain than you have to? And if you write a lot... you could be heading for some chronic vocal issues.Causes of…
  • Why Eye Language Matters To Your Voice

    Judy Rodman
    17 May 2014 | 8:15 am
    As vocal coach, one of the quickest ways I can improve someone's voice is to get the person using eye language when they speak or sing. Here's why:Your eyes, eyebrows, eyepads all communicate messages. Actors learn this early... especially film and TV acting with closeups. Consider how masterful actors like Meryl Streep, Anthony Hopkins, Kate Winslet, Jack Nicholson silently and instantly tell you something by a slight rise or fall of one or both eyebrows, widening of the eye, squint at the edge above upper cheek.This eye and surrounding tissue movement creates not only silent messages, but…

    I remember the main theme on this one after all this years and it’s a great one. If you love Tyler’s guitar work, then you’ll find something here to enjoy.

    Frailty is the most impressive score so far in the way it sounds. It sounds like the score budget was a lot higher for this one than Tyler’s previous scores.

    1 Aug 2014 | 11:30 am
    The 4th Floor was Brian Tyler’s first horror score. It’s a mostly melodic score and we also get to hear Tyler’s first action cues. ‘Attack The Locksmith’ is the start of a long career as an action composer. It’s not that far from today’s action cues actually, but of course it’s more crude. I don’t find The 4th Floor particularly scary, but it’s certainly creepy at times. Tyler is also using middle eastern instruments in here which is interesting. As far as horror scores go, this isn’t bad. At a glance: Year: 1999 21 tracks 34…

    Doctor Zebra isn’t the kind of band you’d expect to exist in Pune. A surf-themed pop-punk sound isn’t particularly synonymous with the place; you don’t even have the sea there. The video we found in our inbox (watch below), for the title track from their debut EP, Surfer Girl, was unexpected. It was unselfconsciously campy and accurately overplayed the band’s tongue-in-cheek sensibilities. But what persuaded us to stay through its entirety were the affably potent hooks. The trio’s take on the genre is unashamedly optimistic — they trade punk’s…

But that day, the band carried on till well past midnight. “The venue was packed till the end,” says Jishnu Dasgupta, Swarathma’s bassist.

The news hit me like a ton of bricks because Hank was always a guy who was so full of life that it was hard to imagine that he could actually be gone. He was someone that when you met him, you would be surprised to find out how old he was, because he always looked at least a decade younger than he actually was. And yet he had been sick, battling lymphoma…
  • This Ain’t No Cheap Trick…

    9 Jul 2014 | 8:18 pm
    I had the chance to speak with Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen for this week's issue of Scene. The band is in town Thursday night for a show at the Hard Rock Live. Check out Rick's thoughts on pizza and more right here. In that same issue, you'll also find a conversation with Rachel Bolan of Skid Row. The '80s metal dudes keep on rollin' and they'll be at the Cleveland Agora on Thursday night as well. So if you were looking for something to do Thursday evening, you've now got a couple of options!

    #98032918 / gettyimages.com I got a chance to speak with Journey guitarist Neal Schon for a piece that ran  in this week's edition of the Cleveland Scene prior to their upcoming show here in the area on Tuesday evening with Steve Miller Band and Tower of Power. As is often the case, writing that story sent me to the music stacks to pull out some Journey. I was going to Buffalo to see Blue Rodeo and wanted to load in some tunes for the car. It's funny, for a long time, there wasn't really a lot of live Journey available officially beyond the well known (and for many people, the essential)…
  • Chicago’s Robert Lamm On Winning Over The Critics, New Music + 47 Years Of Rock And Roll

    Matt Wardlaw
    2 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    Earlier this year I had a chance to speak with Robert Lamm, founding member of Chicago, the legendary "rock and roll band with horns." The veteran keyboardist/vocalist is always an engaging chat and on this particular occasion, there was plenty to talk about. The band had just performed on the Grammy Awards, melding the old school with the new during their performance with Robin Thicke. They had also just put the finishing touches on Now, their 36th release (which happens to be in stores now as you're reading this). According to Lamm, they've already got another album on the schedule, which…

    By Bob Marovich On Tuesday, July 29, members of the Gospel Announcers Guild of the Gospel Music Workshop of America saluted their longtime friend and leader, Al “The Bishop” Hobbs, with a special musical program at the GWMA Convention in Atlanta, Georgia.  Among the performers were Rev. Milton Biggham, Dottie Peoples, and Dorothy Norwood.  Two of his children were present for the tribute. It was the first year Hobbs, struggling with cancer, was unable to attend the annual Gospel Announcers Guild convention, for which he has served as chairman for many years.  Nevertheless, he…

  • A much needed hiatus

    21 Jul 2014 | 9:24 pm
    One of the worst things a blogger can do is not post anything for days or months. Then after those months have passed, you see the obligatory "Sorry it's been so long since my last post! Things sure have sped by! I promise to do better!" And then...nothing.It becomes as empty and desolate as real estate in Detroit. This hiatus was not due to the fact that I was too busy, or forgot. This blog entered my head every day. But I had briefly lost the will to write. I have been working on a novel for almost 10 years. It was historical fictional / alternate history involving a real rock n roll band.
  • 30 Worst Taylor Swift Lyrics

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

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

    A few weeks ago I wrote with tongue firmly planted in cheek bragging about my musical influence over my kids - getting them to listen to good pop music whether they liked it or not. So when I saw that Paul McCartney was performing at Philips Arena June 21, I immediately thought of my daughters. I saw Paul perform several years ago at Piedmont Park, and afterwards I could finally say that I had seen a Beatle perform live. But I wanted to share that special moment with my daughters, so even though it was past their bedtime, I asked my mother-in-law to give the kids the phone so they could…

    Kurt Cobain died 20 years ago on Saturday - one of those morose anniversaries that make people reflect on his legacy and the sadness that accompanies any suicide. Think of the unwritten songs, the continued legacy that Nirvana could have continued to impress upon rock music. Few really know what despondency and depression fuel thoughts or attempts at suicide. Cobain was depressed, even though he was at the pinnacle of rock music. And we all lament his passing. But his legacy is waning. Even during his life, he spawned several copycat groups (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden), and after his death, it…

They are so incredibly detailed and perfect that it is hard to believe that they are in fact unique, one-of-a-kind works of art, and not reproductions of a photograph.   CJ Hendry’s creative process starts with the selection of the object, continues with taking more than 100 photographs of the object to discover the shadows and angles that best present the…

    Many of the trends we are seeing – and liking - in retail, hospitality, services and even urban planning, deal with smaller size because a strong, growing segment of us is tired of Big. We want small, independent, pop-up, mobile, local, rogue. But – and this is an important but – we want it served up to us in a professional manner, we do not want amateur fumbling even from the smallest providers. In essence, we want what we cannot have from the mega-malls, big boxes, airports, big brands or grocery giants. And that leads to another important ‘but’. We want small…

She paints her vivid, passionate canvases — some as large as 78 x 25 inches (195 x 62 centimeters) -- from black-and-white photos, further proof of her unfailing ability to interpret light, shadow, hue and tone by applying…

At least 40 Gaza residents and five Israeli soldiers have died after an exchange of fire this morning. Both sides are blaming the other for the breakdown of the ceasefire, with Israel saying Hamas militants violated the deal by capturing an Israeli officer and killing two other soldiers. The ceasefire, set up by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, was an attempt to pave the way to a more lasting truce, but it appears the fighting…
  • What Christians Get Wrong About Discipleship

    1 Aug 2014 | 8:24 am
    Jesus called us to "make disciples of all nations," but what does that mean? To those of us who follow Jesus, discipleship should be a central aspect of our faith. This is because Jesus commanded His followers—in what is commonly referred to as “The Great Commission”—to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:18-20). It’s not a suggestion that Jesus makes here. It’s a command, a charge.

Asserting that women and men are equal speaks to there being no fundamental differences between their capacities to learn and achieve, to their deserving the same pay for the same work and the same right to vote and the same opportunities. Women and men don’t have to be the same to achieve equality, and they are not. We’re different—and there’s nothing…

    A light week on the big bangerz front, so let’s focus on some quality under-the-radar jams to check out this weekend. Fun fact: three of these songs feature clicking/popping noises that draw you in and push you away simultaneously. J Mascis — “Wide Awake” feat. Cat Power It’s still a wonder, to me at least, to hear the dude from Dinosaur Jr. making such delicately beautiful tunes. This nimbly finger-picked ditty, featuring Chan Marshall, adds a slight bite to all the introspection with a subtly distorted guitar solo. Sweet with a little sour. – Sophie —…

    Spoon. Photo credit: Tom Hines It’s August, and we’re all just trying to squeeze out the last little bit of summer. You may just find your late-season personal pick for Song of the Summer in this month’s top albums. I know I did: Spoon’s “Do You,” Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” the New Pornographers’ “Brill Bruisers,” Basement Jaxx’s “Unicorn,” Merchandise’s “Enemy,” Cymbals Eat Guitars’ “Warning,” and FKA twigs’ “Two Weeks.”
  • New Showtime Doc Is a Geeks-Only Backstage Pass to David Bowie’s Most Creative Years

    Judy Berman
    1 Aug 2014 | 8:15 am
    Outside of ’60s monoliths The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, it seems likely that no musical career has been as comprehensively recorded on film as David Bowie’s. Documentary filmmakers have caught him at highs (D.A. Pennebaker’s classic Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars) and lows (Alan Yentob’s 1974 BBC project, Cracked Actor, a painfully raw account of Bowie’s LA-coke-hell period); Todd Haynes blew him a glittery kiss in 1998, with the glam-rock fantasy Velvet Goldmine; and Bowie’s own acting roles, such as his portrayal of an alien in Nicolas…
  • “Maced by a Feminist”: The Retro, Weirdo Misogyny of Ariel Pink

    Tom Hawking
    1 Aug 2014 | 6:45 am
    LA-based gnome and improbable rock star Ariel Pink told a story earlier this week about how he was “maced by a feminist” last year. He related the incident in an interview, apparently as a sort of confessional type thing, but if he was looking for sympathy, he’d perhaps have been better served keeping the tale for his friends. To save you watching the whole thing: Pink went home with a girl and, the next morning, got into an argument with her about which of them was to pay for a $4 smoothie — an argument that ended in her allegedly chasing him down the street, macing him,…
  • Lorde Is REALLY Excited about Curating the ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Soundtrack

    Today, news came that Lorde would be curating the soundtrack to Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. She’ll also have the first single off the blockbuster soundtrack, which will be out this fall. It’s a new song she wrote with Pure Heroine collaborator Joel Little, but honestly, Lorde seems more pumped about making a mixtape for Katniss and co. And it is adorable. Lorde squeed on her Tumblr: To be at the helm of a project like this is easily the most responsibility I’ve ever had, and to me, that says something kind of amazing about the way the world is changing…

    Many people feel the need to play advanced, note-perfect versions of their favourite songs. After consulting with our subscribers and followers of Grade Music TV, we found out that simple tutorials of a song in it’s most basic form appeals more than learning fancy chords, quaver runs or complex rhythms that might have appeared in it. As such, our video tutorial of Pharrell William’s song ‘Happy’ is a far more simplified version of the video we made performing the piece a few months ago. As always, do let us know what you think and how you feel the tutorials could be improved. Regards…

    I spoke to Doyle recently and aside from being a super chill guy, what you get is that he is chomping at the bit to get out there, touring, playing and the adrenaline he gets from the fans. The project of Doyle was the brainchild of his along with his band mate and songwriting partner, vocalist Alex Story (Cancerslug).

    From Stereogum: “I feel like there’s all this weird mythology that sort of surrounds me, and it distracts from the purity of the band,” he says. “If somebody mentioned DIIV, they wouldn’t hum the song, they’d be like, ’Oh yeah, the guy who got pulled over driving a stolen car with heroin in it.’ I really hate that.” DIIV began as an intentionally shadowy enterprise, but Smith has become far from anonymous over the past two years. “I never wanted my face or personality to be part of the band, but it became inevitable,” he says. “This next record I did want to reveal…

As my eyes adjust to the intense light on this strip of land, the third largest of the Balearic Islands, other deputies of Ibiza emerge on massive billboards nearby: Steve Aoki, David Guetta, as well as super clubs like Booom! and Space. Judging by such signage, I could just as easily be in Las Vegas. The electronic musician I’m looking for at the Ibiza airport is unadvertised.

    From Resident Advisor: Earlier this year, I traveled to Amsterdam to attend a unique listening party for one. Paul Oomen, the 31-year-old head of a project called 4DSOUND, picked me up at Amsterdam Centraal, where we hopped in a taxi and headed east. The quaint houses and canals of the city center gave way to newer apartment blocks and offices and, eventually, low-slung warehouses. The taxi dropped us off, and Oomen led me around the side of a warehouse through waist-high weeds growing by the water. At some point the brush got too thick, and we had to turn back and wind through the parking…

    Nostalgia is powerful. That sense of longing for the past can be deeply evocative. But what’s particularly interesting to me as a fan of music is how music can transmit a sense of longing for times and places we’ve never experienced. For example, when I listen to the 1973 LP Gil & Jorge I feel a nostalgic twinge for my romanticized vision of the music scene in Sao Paulo, Brazil during the seventies. I wasn’t even born yet when that album was recorded and, needless to say, I’ll never experience Sao Paulo as it was in 1970. Nonetheless, when I listen to that record I daydream of…

    Andrew Brandt
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Courtney Barnett is funny. She doesn’t bust your britches—or tell actual jokes, for that matter. But the way in which she can create humor out of mundane, everyday situations makes her undeniably funny. Her latest, “Pickles from the Jar,” is a simple rock song wherein the singer-songwriter lists off all the ways her and her beloved are different. And its funny. Scars, Christopher Walken and a great way to consume pickles are all a part of the mix, so the track really can’t lead your ears astray. The lighthearted and laidback “Pickles from the Jar” is Barnett’s contribution to…

    This new vibe “Pendulum” from FKA Twigs might just make you tingle. Initially it sets off with an clicking, clockwork-like precision before bursting into a kaleidoscopic swirl of warm synths, bubbling bass, and skittering snare drums to accompany her mostly breathless, feather-light croon. It’s pretty incredible. You can pre-order her debut LP with a bonus 7″ and 4 art prints from Insound.

    Riley Beggin
    31 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    With “Phoenix,” the newest mistress of dark pop has emerged. For Laura Doggett’s debut song, the title is fitting—the British artist rose out of obscurity and (if we have anything to say about it) is on the fast track to join the ranks of electro croon-queens Banks and MØ. The track’s seamless, eerie production comes from SOHN, the producer-virtuoso who has worked extensively with Kwabs and, surprise surprise, Banks. “Phoenix” is a masterpiece in restraint: Doggett’s sighing vocals provide a grounded center, while an impossibly light beat pushes forward and shudders like the…

  • How to Set Down a Saxophone?

    Neal
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:31 pm
    Setting down a saxophone improperly can damage it. Then it may not play well and you’ll probably need to pay for repairs. Let’s look at the two sides of a saxophone and think about which is the better option if you need to set it down. Hey, it’s Kristi. I recently attended a band camp and was playing my saxophone. An instructor for the marching portion had seen the way I had put my instrument on the turf- with all the keys facing up. He told me to turn it over so the keys would lay on the ground. I had thought this would bend the keys and rods, but he told me it was fine,…

The thesaurus of scales and melodic patterns. Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns John Coltrane among others learned some things from this book.

  • Saxophone Tuning Guide

    1 Jul 2014 | 6:28 pm
    You want your saxophone to play in tune and blend with others. But you may notice that you’re sometimes out of tune, possibly only on certain notes and would like to fix that. The problem Playing out of tune immediately sticks out in a bad way. Even people who are not musicians often can tell if a singer or musician is quite a bit out of tune. Because of the way the saxophone is built, tuning one note (even perfectly) does not ensure that all other notes will play in tune. Low C could be flat, middle C could be in tune, high C could be sharp without adjusting anything on the saxophone.

Incidentally, I did a session with Dennen the following day and saw close up what a talented songwriter he is. The trio of band members were more than ready to take the stage and filled the venue with an incredible sound for a three piece band. This show felt like it had more of a loud and rocky edge to it compared to previous ones –…

  • Video: The Smoking Time Jazz Club at Satchmo SummerFest 2014

    Stephen Maloney
    1 Aug 2014 | 12:32 pm
    Posted by Stephen Maloney on OffBeat.com. The Smoking Time Jazz Club kicked things off at Satchmo SummerFest 2014 with a rousing performance of “Sunset Stomp,” a variation of the Louis Armstrong classic “Sunset Cafe Stomp,” which he performed with his Hot Five band. Just after a second line led by the Roots of Music marching band and a dance demonstration by Dancing Man 504, singer Sarah Peterson and the rest of the band lit up the tent with their energetic take on traditional jazz. Check out the video to see the Smoking Time Jazz Club in action. The post Video: The Smoking Time Jazz…
  • Dr. John, Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch (Proper/Concord)

    Brett Milano
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:59 am
    Posted by Brett Milano on OffBeat.com. During his keynote address at last year’s Satchmo SummerFest, Wycliffe Gordon opined that nobody but Louis Armstrong could possibly bring off a song like “What a Wonderful World.” One track into this album, Dr. John proves Gordon wrong. Mac Rebennack isn’t the first to cover this chestnut—even Joey Ramone had a go at it—but he may be the first to do it as funk. After the Blind Boys of Alabama’s a cappella intro, the band proceeds to dance all over the tune; Nicholas Payton plays an exuberant solo and Dr. John sings it as if he’s genuinely…
  • Marc Broussard, A Life Worth Living (Vanguard)

    David Kunian
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:58 am
    Posted by David Kunian on OffBeat.com. Marc Broussard’s voice is an inspiring instrument. Broussard can sing with subtle shadings, calibrated emotion, and sheer energy, all of which are featured on his new record, A Life Worth Living. He shouts and screams on the jagged rocker “Dyin’ Man” and the slow burner “Man Ain’t Supposed to Cry” while mining a more folk vein on the sweet “Perfect to Me” and a Southern rhythm-and-blues feel on “Weight of the World.” The music here mixes soul and rock with a couple of unexpected jazz-like turns in the melodies and progressions.

  • Kim Carson, Enough Heart Left to Break (Independent)

    Brett Milano
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:57 am
    Posted by Brett Milano on OffBeat.com. Whenever I’ve seen Kim Carson in the past, it’s been the bawdy songs that grabbed me first. She’s always had a way with a socially irresponsible lyric, pulling off songs like “I Only Like You When I’m Drinking” and “Tequila Makes My Clothes Fall Off” with a sly wink. Less familiar are her skills as a country balladeer, but that’s what you hear on this disc: It’s less about the bad behavior that can follow heartbreak and more about the heartbreak itself. The album is also a travelogue of sorts, as the singer first reunites with a lover…
  • Cowboy Mouth, Go! (Elm City Music)

    Luke R. Ilardo
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:56 am
    Posted by Luke R. Ilardo on OffBeat.com. The tenth studio album from Cowboy Mouth finds the band in familiar territory, but the CD does offer a couple of tracks that deviate from the norm. On “My Little Secret,” Casandra Faulconer’s bass line oozes in as Fred LeBlanc sings, “I may not be the sharpest dresser and I ain’t so debonair / but what I lack in couth and tact I make up in savoir faire”—making it clear LeBlanc can handle himself in a number of musical scenarios. Perhaps the album’s best-executed track, “Mardi Gras by Moonlight” delves into the supernatural with a…

  • The Barr Brothers: ‘Half Crazy’ & ‘Even the Darkness Has Arms’

    admin
    21 Jul 2014 | 9:18 pm
    Brad and Andrew Barr have been my favorite guitarist and drummer, respectively, since their time in New England trio the Slip. Now, with Sarah Page on harp and Andres Vial on keys, the Montreal quartet’s new set as the Barr Brothers, Sleeping Operator, arrives this fall. They’ve long pushed the envelope, unlocking genres from jazz to folk and world music, from psych-rock to at least one notable nod to classic rock. This outfit, though, is more bent on extending the traditional singer-songwriter palette. Case in point, new cut “Half Crazy” is described as…
  • Jeff & Spencer Tweedy Share 4 New Tracks

    Jeff and Spencer Tweedy’s new record isn’t due for two more months, but nearly half of the “solo album performed by a duo” is here for early spins. It’s called Sukierae, written by the Wilco frontman and conceived “from the very beginning” with his son on drums as the tunes took shape. Each cut so far delivers solid results, from the settled, Sunday afternoon number “Wait For Love” to the very Whole Love-esque “I’ll Sing It.” Their most recent preview, “Diamond Light Pt. 1,” stands out most,…
  • Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy: Bad Man

    admin
    25 Jun 2014 | 11:21 am
    Will Oldham quietly released a self-titled record last fall under his longtime moniker Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, available only at shows and now directly from his site. Taking a foray from his label, Drag City, and any smidgen of internet hype, Oldham avoided announcements or even putting the LP up on iTunes. But now we have something official to share: “Bad Man,” an exemplary cut from the record, which is spare and left bare in solo-acoustic form. In keeping with the understated release, director Claudia Crobatia made a video that’s simple yet enigmatic.

There’s a new official clip for the former, too: Director Laura Pennell recruited twins Pauline and Tarlina Fowler for scenes that open up the cut to deeper interpretation while not distracting from its inherent easy charm. If you haven’t caught St. South yet, above is a fine introduction. The Cadence EP is due later this year.
  • Watch Bill Callahan Play A Pocket Party

    admin
    23 Jun 2014 | 8:24 pm
    I’ve seen Bill Callahan play a church and an old movie theater, but it’s rare to catch him at a house party, in France no less. This set went up in April, somewhere along the Dream River tour, yet without the band he brought along for most of it. In his own words, “The lighting is perfect. I can see the spit flying out of my mouth.” Any fan would love this stuff: Bill in a jovial spirit, slightly awkward in the intimate setting, singing solo-electric (not common except for this clip), and taking one request, an off-the-cuff run through “Drover.” He…

  • Darlings Tease New LP with “Centuries of Light”

    Andy Fenstermaker
    31 Jul 2014 | 7:00 pm
    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).

  • Rose Windows Return with ‘There Is A Light’

    Andy Fenstermaker
    22 Jun 2014 | 9:35 am
    One of my favorite new artists of 2013 was Seattle’s Rose Windows. Their debut LP, The Sun Dogs, on Sub Pop was a luscious array of mildly psych-induced folk rock fronted by Rabia Shaheen Qazi exotic vocals. It continues: Rose Windows have now given us a first taste of life beyond The Sun Dogs with a new single (also on Sub Pop) for “There Is A Light”. Others have traisped this arena before, as recently as the now popular Edward Sharpe — this blend of West-meets-East influenced folk-rock, this yearning for a more obscure and visionary sound. I didn’t make the…
  • Belgian Fog Breaks the Mold on new MP3 “Before You Ever Talked”

    I always get a bit giddy when I get a new unsolicited email from Robert Dale. It always precedes a new track. My fourth such email communication with Mr. Dale was no exception. And here, two days later, I am quite chuffed to present the fourth song by Dale’s project Belgian Fog: “Before You Ever Talked”. Belgian Fog’s new track is a slight departure from what I’ve come to expect from Robert Dale. First, the song is early; previous tracks have been about six months in between, yet here we are less than four months since we premiered “Loveless Way”.
  • Axxa/Abraxas: Not Your Average Stoner Pop

    Andy Fenstermaker

    Axxa/Abraxas is the moniker of one Ben Asbury, a man creating psychedelic stoner pop that very much fits the vein of Captured Tracks, who released the band’s self-titled LP back in what looks like early March. I’m just now catching wind of this album, and it has taken me by storm. By that, I mean this: Axxa/Abraxas has absolutely dominated my iPod the past week, and there are a few key reasons why. First, the music Axxa/Abraxas creates blends an assortment of pop sub-genre traits: psychedelic, jangle, stoner. These styles all work well on their own, but it takes a special talent…

    The Traktor Pro 2 BeatSlicer effect The Traktor Pro 2 BeatSlicer effect loops a sample of audio, chops it up, and the shuffles the order in which those sections of audio are played. This kind of effect is often called a Beat Repeat. Unlike many of the other effects in Traktor Pro 2, the BeatSlicer does not give you full control over the effect. While you can change some of the effect parameters, you are not able to customize the effect’s playback order and must choose from one of the preset patterns. Even with this limitation, the effect is still very powerful as its sound changes with…

  • Mash Up Tracks with the Traktor Pro 2 Beatmasher 2 Effect

    contact@thedjpodcast.com (thedjpodcast.com)
    17 Jul 2014 | 5:30 pm
    What does the Traktor Pro 2 Beatmasher2 effect do? The Beatmasher2 effect samples and then loops 1 bar of audio. The individual effect parameters control how the sample is mixed with and synchronized to the original soruce of audio. Each time you turn the effect on a new bar of audio will be sampled and loop until you turn the effect off. Therefore it is important that you start with the effect off.

    GRMLN is the product of 21-year-old Yoodoo Park. Born in Kyoto, Japan, Park has lived in southern California since he was a little boy.  His music reflects the duality of his identity and his recent interest in following a sect of Hinduism, Krishna. “Jaded” is Parker’s first single off his sophomore effort album, “Soon Away,”  which is a far cry from his ethereal sound heard on his first album.  “Soon Away” is a more hard-hitting album than his first, and “Jaded”–off his most recent effort–is no exception.

    Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway go drag in Jenny Lewis’ latest video for her hit song, “Just One of the Guys.” Both Stewart and Hathaway appear in the video wearing white suits while pretend playing instruments as part of the band. For a moment, we totally get Josie and the Pussycat vibes, but only for a minute. Eventually, both switch to wearing Adidas tracksuits and fake mustaches while showing off their best dad dance moves.  Brie Larson and Tennessee Thomas also star in the video.  Check it out (it might just be Kristen Stewart’s best acting performance).

Following their well-received EP,  “Lowtalker,” the pair are set to drop a double-A sided single through Memphis Industries label on September 1. “Tennis Court,” a standout song among the two tracks on the double A-side, echos with intentional distortion and static. The balance of the vocals–Violet’s feminine, angelic voice, and Needham’s raspy and apathetic yet mesmerizing croons–create a grungy melodic track that has us happily hooked.  Take a…

  • Frequency Modulation – It’s Not So Bad Part III: Synthesizing Brass

    colcifer
    10 Jul 2014 | 9:42 pm
    FM can produce quite nice brass sounds and, in this tutorial, we’ll be synthesizing a very 80s trumpet. Just as in tutorial two, I’ll have you set your amp and filter envelopes first, so that we don’t have to interupt any FM-y goodness for them. For the amp envelope, use a ~15ms attack, very snappy decay, and very high sustain. The filter envelope should have a ~20ms attack and a medium sustain. You can leave the decay and release stages at their defaults. Now, for the FM-y goodness: You’ve probably read that trumpets produce a complete harmonic series (if you…

In this tutorial, we’ll create a sound along the lines of wind chime We’ll create and initialize a Thor and remove the analog oscillator and filter. For a bell, we’ll want to turn down the sustain levels in the envelopes and raise the release times to around the same value as the decay times. For flexibility, we’ll apply FM via the matrix. Create two FM pair oscillators and route the second to the first (don’t forget to turn down the FM amount knob). To find the right ratio, just keep hitting the up…
  • Frequency Modulation – It’s Not So Bad Part I: Introduction

    colcifer
    10 Jul 2014 | 9:33 pm
    I don’t claim to be an expert in FM; I don’t claim to be especially good at it, for that matter. I do claim, however, that FM is not as hard or scary as you might have heard and I hope to prove this over the course of three tutorials. From my tinkering with FM, I have come to the conclusion that it is difficult to learn because of the dirth of good user interfaces, rather than any property of the method, itself. The trouble is that FM synthesizers is that they, by necessity, have more parameters that need to be set than most others; presenting them all intuitively is difficult.

I thought I’d make up for lost time and share a few tips that are off the beaten path. 1. The sub oscillator doesn’t have to be a sub oscillator. The initial patch sets the sub oscillator’s octave to -1. This is is very sensible but it will lead some to overlook that it can be set all the way up to +5. Using the sub oscillator’s unique tones in higher octaves greatly expands the range of sounds that you can create. (I’ve found…

Having remained relatively quiet since his nuptials to Kim Kardashian, Kanye West has broken his silence in a recent GQ Magazine interview on everything from the reception of 2013’s Yeezus album to his desire to be a top designer in the fashion world to the tabloid wedding of the decade. But for Hip-Hop fans, the most important piece of information divulged by Yeezy probably had to be him seemingly conceding the top spot in Hip Hop to none other than October’s Very Own, Drake. Interviewed for the July issue of GQ by…

The album is “a wall to wall tribute to the 1971 musical Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” (via rollingstone). Just reading that last sentence and the album title makes me instantly think YES!

    The Beasties Boys brought a fresh voice into hip hop when they started playing their own instruments on “Check Your Head” and dropped a flute, of all things onto the hook of “Sure Shot.” Now Ad Rock brings an unexpected organic orchestration to “Canal” by fellow New York badass Ratking.

    First Aid Kit stopped by Australian radio show Like A Version and unleashed a couple of firsts—a Jack White cover, and First Aid Kit having fun!The Swedish duo brings their signature melancholic sound that makes their new album “Stay Gold” excellent to Jack White‘s “Love Interruption.” And it totally works. But the girls also do an impromptu cover of a video tribute show jingle, and it’s nice to see these two smile for once.

    Pretty much anyone who has ever tried to describe Wilco to a friend has started off with something like, “They’re good—low key.” Now Jeff Tweedy has finally gone ahead and embraced the descriptor and named a song after it.“Low Key” is the latest single we’ve heard from Tweedy, a project that was born when Jeff Tweedy started work on a new solo album and ended up playing with his 16-year-old Spencer. Starting the “Summer Noon” every Tweedy song has been pretty low key, but “Low Key” actually steps up the arrangement a notch with…

    Back in May, we wrote about an infographic called “The Largest Vocabulary in Hip-Hop.” In it, designer and coder Matt Daniels crunched the numbers, and figured out which MCs knew the most words.It was somewhat controversial—not necessarily for the methodology, but for who Daniels left out. Thankfully, he’s come back with a new chart, adding 20 more rappers. With this update, according to Daniels, he “decided to add rappers who are known for their word-obession.”It’d be unfair to claim that the largest vocab indicates an artist being “the…

    “It’s my party, I’ll get high if I want to,” sings Swedish duo JJ in the gorgeous new track “Dean & Me.” The song is the latest in a series of singles we’ve heard stream from the highly anticipated new album “V.” While the last one, “All White Everything,” was sparse and bare, the new “Dean & Me” is more lushly orchestrated—but equally as stunning. “V” is promising to be a hell of a record. It comes out August 19 on Secretly Canadian.

    Leggings have been around for some time in fact from the 1970s and 80s. During those times, they were being worn by athletes and dancers. In the course of time however they fell out of fashion with most people. In the mid 2000s they resurfaced with a force more powerful than that they used to have. Fashion stylists have predicted that this time round, they may stay a little bit longer. In today’s fashion world, most fashion-conscious ladies have incorporated leggings into their everyday outfits.  Unlike in the past, they now come in different patterns, colors and prints in a bid to…

We are talking music that would normally be segregated to the smallest tent in the furthest-part of any other festival. Global Gathering has that strong branded look and feeling that thrusts out in front of thousands of devoted fans. What could be better?

    Ok I think its been almost 16 hours non stop in coding, design and getting something to eat every now and then. It’s about time that I have some free time in finally getting this out of the way. The way I’m building and designing this site is pretty much as a music shop and store. I write some music. jam with the fellows for a while then record vocals. Then “Bam” I have a completed track. Then of course at times I’ll just write the music, record it and then consider it as an added track for a construction kit or for what ever. Of course when I have the free time to do these things.

    Regular readers of this blog will know I have a lot of time for ukulele punk outfit The pUKEs, so was thrilled to get my hands on their new full album 'Too Drunk To Pluck'.The pUKEs are a pretty massive gaggle / collective of punk fans who also have their soft spots for the ukulele. Founded by Clara Wiseman (who herself had a previous music career with acts like the UK Subs) there is real punk heritage across the board too and the album itself was recorded and produced by Patrick Collier of the Vibrators.They are an outfit I've kept an eye on for several years now and have watched them get…

Fitting a passive ukulele pickup to my Kanile'a Tenor ukulele. Being an expensive Hawaiian uke, this was a somewhat nervous process, but actually, if you go steady and carefully its not all that bad. Thought I would provide a kind of semi review and comment on the installation process to help others out. The model pickup in question was a Fishman AG series 094 ukulele pickup.A quick word in advance on pickups. If you want to go down the electro acoustic route I will always recommend that you first…

That was based on me having played a couple briefly at uke festivals and nothing more. The UK distributor, Stones Music, got in touch and (rightly) suggested that I actually test one for a while and write up a fuller review. So here we go.The iUke is a solid topped piccolo or sopranino scale…

Hold Of Me has to be the smoothest, disco infused song that I’ve heard since 5 Reasons and Patrick Baked first teamed up and released Night Drive In Moscow. Yeah, it’s that good. Alex Rome is a musician who calls both Sydney, Australia and Moscow, Russia home. He’s currently preparing the release of his debut EP. Pulling in inspiration from classic bass grooves, and the ’70s dance floor, Hold OF Me is a laid back jam that’s perfect for warm evenings.

    Sivu takes on Frank Sinatra’s classic and really does some justice. Strangers in the Night has been covered time and time again, but there’s something unique about Sivu’s cover of the song. He approaches the song with a very delicate touch. There’s no copying of Sinatra’s bold crooning. Everything comes off sounding entirely innocent and sincere. It somewhat reminds me of Alex Turner’s work on the Submarine soundtrack. The use of a simple, acoustic guitar and dreamy strings adds a real feeling of romance. Let’s not forget, Sivu’s vocals are…

    27 Jul 2014 | 11:00 pm
    There is something about Scandinavian and Icelandic music that reflects the beauty and peace of the landscapes that produced them.  Singer-songwriter Alice Boman’s music does just that: captivating us through both its allure and its simplicity. Hailing from Malmö in Sweden, Boman made her debut last year, with the release of ‘Skisser.’ The EP, a bedroom self-recording, is something Boman admits was written for only her listening. After its unexpected release, a whirlwind of unprecedented attention followed, leading Boman to industry recognition almost instantly. Click here to view the…

  • In Memoriam Charlie Haden

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

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

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

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

Only a few days after the death of jazz pianist, arranger and composer Dave Brubeck left this world, indian-american sitar player and composer Ravi Shankar completed his life on earth at the age of 92. With his departure, India lost its most famous cultural embassador. Ravi Shankar had finished his sitar studies in 1944 and has been an active performer and composer from then on.

Bubbling spontaneously from the heart of child or man. Without egotism and full of feeling, laughter is the music of life".William OslerWhat is very valuable, but attainable without paying any price?

    TankSeveral years ago I capitalized on an opportunity that arose to promote music for an independent record company. It was a wonderful experience and I got the chance to meet many more folks in the radio and music industries. Always interesting was the interaction with non-industry music buyers; those who just voiced their opinion of what they like or do not like. Recently I recalled one of the conversations with a young woman regarding one of the groups I was promoting. She listened to the single released by the group at the time, and I asked what she thought of all aspects of the record.

    There's nothing like listening to the isolated bass and drums of a track to really feel its essence. The essence of Wings' "Band On The Run" (from the album of the same name) is totally Paul McCartney, as he played both bass and drums on the track.Most of the album was recorded at the EMI studios in Lagos, Nigeria after Sir Paul decided he wanted to try recording in a more exotic place than England. Just prior to departing for Nigeria, both lead guitarist Henry McCollough and drummer Denny Seiwell left the band. Paul and band members Linda McCartney and Denny Laine decided to carry…

Usually when the price is too good to be true, it's either a close-out of a model that will no longer be manufactured, or it's a counterfeit. One of the more egregious examples in recent years is with one of the best headphones on the market, the Audio Technica ATM-50, but there are other companies that are affected as well.Although not a favorite of audio pros, Beats by Dre headphones are one of the best sellers (much to the chagrin of the older pro headphone…

    Most Beatles albums were mixed primarily in mono until The White Album, according to engineer Ken Scott in his Abbey Road To Ziggy Stardust book (which I was most honored to co-write), with the stereo mixes done as an afterthought, since stereo was such a new technology at the time. This practice continues until the band discovered that some fans were actually buying both mono and stereo copies of their albums because of the slight mix differences between them. At that point, the Boys determined that it would be a good idea to spend more time mixing the stereo versions, which they did…

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.

          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…

    As soon as a Flagland song starts, there's a panicked, anxious energy that bubbles up -- probably related to the lineage of the music.

They stopped by to tear it up in the studio and have some chit chat with Travis. Featured song: "Awesome Song Kerry Jan"

  • NEW: Eliza and the Bear – ‘Light It Up’

    Inthejunkardmusic
    1 Aug 2014 | 12:52 pm
    If there is one thing Eliza and the Bear are able to do it’s create radio-friendly pop-songs and the London based quintet have pulled it out of the bag again with their latest track ‘Light It Up’. Premiered yesterday evening (July 31) by Zane Lowe as his Hottest Record; ‘Light It Up’ sees the lads at their anthemic best, with a plethora of euphoric-harmonies spread across the hook heavy track, it sounds made for the radio-waves. Eliza and the Bear are set to release new EP ‘Light It Up’ on 3rd August via Mi Familia Music.   By Michael Jamison

    I just got word that the great funk and soul-jazz drummer Idris Muhammad has passed away at the age of 74 from unknown causes. Muhhamad, who started his career off as Leo Morris, recorded as a sideman on so many classic sessions (mostly for Blue Note and Prestige) in the 1960′s and early 1970′s it would be impossible to name all the best of them here now. He did appear on a few of my all-time favorite soul-jazz albums from the time, including Lou Donaldson’s Midnight Creeper, Grant Green’s Alive! and Charles Earland’s Black Talk!, all of which are stone-cold…

    Egon (of Now Again fame) has put out a nearly 50 minute mix using odd and obscure rock and roll records from around the world, much like Madlib does on his recently released Rock Konducta album. As Egon puts it, “This is a mix of late 60s to mid 70s rock music from all over the world: America to Germany to Japan and everywhere in-between. It’s the type of rock Madlib used for the Rock Konducta records, and is a mixture of the incredibly rare and random dollar bin finds that makes crate digging in the rock idiom so much fun.”

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

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

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

    Uke Song of the Month

  • The Other Best Way to Get Better at Playing Your Uke

    Danno Sullivan
    7 Jul 2014 | 8:47 am
    It is far better to practice uke a little every day than to the once-in-a-while marathon session. Every day practice keeps the skills that you want to work on, more in mind. It also keeps your physical skills closer to hand, so you don’t have to re-learn every time you pick up your uke. So here are 5 Tips for Learning Uke in 5 Minutes. 1: Buy a cheap uke so you can take it with you everywhere and not worry about it Great choices: Makala Dolphin Bridge Uke: link to collection at Amazon Diamond Head Ukes: link to collection at Amazon (these are a little cheaper, and I like them a…

    This is not really a song to sing to your mother on Mother’s Day. This is a song that your mother wants you to be singing to yourself and your siblings on Mother’s Day. The debt of love you owe her, you can’t repay. Crikey. Really? Never? Am I doomed? I can’t go on like this, with a debt of love I can never repay. But–the song lets us know, we can do the next best thing: Go take her in your arms and kiss her tears away. Don’t let it bother you that she only has tears in the first place because she loves you so much, and you are not there. So, learn…

    You know my motto: “Learn to play songs on your uke by actually playing songs on your uke.” The logic is simple. If you’re just playing scales and learning chord shapes, it won’t be long till you’re bored out of your gourd. (Dibs on that for a song title). Of course there’s a time and a place for scales and chord shapes, but you can learn an awful lot of that stuff while playing actual songs–songs that you enjoy.

  • Major Blues Scale

    admin
    23 Jun 2014 | 2:47 am
    Playing in major is challenging to many guitarists, the major blues scale is no exception. I think one reason to why many guitar-players prefer the minor scale is simply that it is the first scale you learn.  Also, a lot of rock and pop songs are based on minor blues, I don’t think there are many riffs in popular music based around the major scale. I can clearly remember myself when I started to explore playing in major, I would always relate to the parallel in minor: If i played in G, I would pretend to play in e-minor, just starting the scale on another root.  While…

He couldn’t be more correct. These days there are hundreds of guitar pedals, multi FX processors, gadgets and gizmos on the market that feature a vast array of sounds for your listening…

    Improvisation on Guitar. The ability to jam over backing tracks (or even with a live band) probably gives me more satisfaction, guitar-wise, than anything else. Sure it takes some time to master, so that is why I like to encourage my students to start at the very basic level, usually in the E minor pentatonic scale and build up their fretboard knowledge slowly but surely. Whilst considering another special edition on improvisation, I recorded a backing track to begin planning a series of lessons. When I started messing about with…

    I think most of our readers remember Saturday morning cartoons, regardless of what incarnation they took. Often they were legitimately silly: I recall shows based off MC Hammer as a superhero, for example. I don’t remember all the exact shows I’d watch on which day, but I was a classic 80s kid in a lot of ways: plenty of Masters of the Universe, Thundercats and Silverhawks when I woke up early enough, later years featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, tuning into the half live-action Super Mario Super Show. These were the bricks of my childhood. I could sit here all night…
  • Orange 9mm – Failure

    Alex Lupica
    16 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    Some time this afternoon, a number of my professors will be gathering to discuss a thesis I have written. My academic life is not quite in their hands, but it feels like it; I’ve put a lot of time into it, neglecting other obligations (you, dear readers, for example). Of course, I’ve also neglected IT. It’s my first large-scale piece of writing, clocking in at nearly 40 pages (believable if you read my entries here often). As such, many factors come up that one doesn’t expect. There’s cohesion, for example: one has to make sure different ideas make sense in the…
  • Melt Yourself Down – Fix My Life

    Jeff Bennet
    8 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    When I was in 4th grade, my mom presented me with an ultimatum.  “Pick a musical instrument, you’re gonna learn how to play something.”  I suppose my disinterest in sports coupled with my interest in Super Nintendo had her worrying that I’d end up an after-school shut-in.  Whatever the case, I did not resist.  I wanted to play a musical instrument – the coolest musical instrument. Drums. The able percussionist; the rhythm-keeper; the sick drum solo guy; me. Not me.  Mom kiboshed my drumming ambition.  “Too noisy”.  I called an audible and went…

    7 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    Everyone says Elvis is the king. I don’t disagree so much as I think they got the last name wrong.This is not, however, an argument over Elvises (because there is no argument). This is about my sister. Today is my sister Emily’s birthday. I have plenty of musical memories attached to my sister, because we grew up together and had similar musical influences/stories early on. We made “assorted” tapes together with the family, mixes culled from my parents’ extensive record collection. We grew up on Sesame Street, the Elephant Show, and Wee Sing. She was in chorus, I…

We’re attempting to showcase what means the most to us for any number of reasons, and sometimes we’ve lucked out and had it resonate (indeed, last week we saw some record traffic through one of our most obscure tracks). This will not be one of those days, as we continue our countdown of what may well be the worst songs out there. As usual, let us consider the modern culprit. Today, we examine Carly Rae Jepsen’s earworm “Call Me…

  • Primer on Tuning Drums

    Ian
    23 Jun 2014 | 6:21 am
    Tuning drums requires time, skill and plenty of patience. It is not for the faint of heart, but then again, neither is playing them. There are some steps one must take, as with anything, the more time spent, the more capable you will become at tuning drums. It’s best to use a snare or tom when you’re first starting out. Your best bet is to start with more basic parts of a drum kit, like the snare drum. Once you’ve mastered the snare, you will be able to tune any other piece of a standard drum kit, drums like the tom or bass drum for example. Start by removing the tension rod from one…

    “My film is not a movie, it’s not a film about Vietnam, it IS Vietnam”, the words spoken by visionary director Francis Ford Coppola when discussing his tortured masterpiece ‘Apocalypse Now’. There’s very little to say that hasn’t already been said about his meditative take on Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart Of Darkness,’ but whilst most reviews tend to focus on the movie’s twisted narrative, unforgettable characters and dynamic cinematography, few focus on the revolutionary sound design. Not only did the film utilise its soundtrack…

    This mix incorporates the sounds of Northeastern Brazilian macumba - a percussion-heavy music derived from Afro-Brazilian religious practices – into a newer idiom more related to contemporary popular music. The track it’s based on is Ulisses Lucas’s 1979 single “Gira Gira .”

  • Girl Band return with ‘De Bom Bom’

    Mark Strong
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:22 am
    There’s quite a few folks in journalistic circles who, like us at GIGsoup, think that ‘Girl Band’ are one of the most important groups around at the moment. ‘Girl Band’ don’t conform to the normal indie-rock genre but instead produce music so unique that it’s simply impossible to walk away from. New single ‘De Bom Bom’ is testament to that fact, and the follow up to previous singles ‘Lawman’ and ‘The Cha Cha Cha’ is every bit as frantic and satisfying as its predecessors. ‘Girl Band’ have a series…

    Cambridge band ‘Bloody Knees’ release new material on 25th August 2014. The ‘Stitches’ EP is released via Dog Knights Productions (their debut release on this label) and is another slice of fist punching, head twitching skater-rock from this excellent four piece. The six tracks showcase a band emanating an obvious growth in confidence. The ‘Stitches’ EP is a massive step up in quality from their 2013 self-titled EP, which itself was an impressive debut,  and clearly reveals a band at the beginning of what should become quite a journey. ‘Garbage Brain’ and ‘Daydream’ are…

    30 Jul 2014 | 4:39 am
    I feel a little ashamed, a little embarrassed. When I reviewed ‘Kid Face’, the latest LP from Oklahoma singer-songwriter Samantha Crain, I may have been a little harsh in its appraisal. I bemoaned the lack of a higher tempo and may, just may, have used the word “somber” on more than one occasion. My three out of five stars award also now looks to be a little miserly. However, while a good journalist always sticks by his editorial I am thankful to now be able to write something of an altogether more positive nature about Miss Crain. Without being too presumptuous I think that most in…

    Modest production, delicate instrumentation and soothing harmonies seem to be the flavour of the day with ‘Whispers’, the new LP from Danish singer-songwriter Tina Dico. The results are stunning and may finally bring this talented young lady to the attention of music lovers the world over. For an artist who already has an extensive back catalogue, ‘Whispers’ (released by Finest Gramophone on August 25th 2014) certainly offers a change in style from previous releases. The inspiration for the album comes from a series of songs Dico wrote for a Danish film ‘En du elsker’. The…

    Stockholm trio ‘Kate Boy’ release their new single ‘Self Control’ on the 8th September 2014, via UK label Fiction Records. To celebrate the forthcoming release, and also because it’s an extremely catchy tune, we at GIGsoup have decided to award the single today’s ‘Track of the Day’ accolade. ‘Self Control’ is the first single to be taken from the bands new a LP, which we are told should be available in the next few months. The single follows hot on the heels of 2013’s ‘Northern Lights’ EP and the impressive track ‘The Way We Are’. The band also recently sold out…

    My high school life was soundtracked by O.A.R. I forgave that they were from the lesser third of the DMV, and I listened to "Crazy Game of Poker" endlessly. There are so so many O.A.R albums in my iTunes, and I'm pretty sure that there are still several CDs in my car. So you can imagine how thrilled I was that they teamed up with the kiddos of PS22 -- if only they had played some of their older songs! But still. My 18-year-old self is happy.

    Wolfgang "Thunderhand" Hammersmith
    17 Jul 2014 | 9:23 am
    Is Rap Music?  Let’s see.  One accepted definition of music is, “An art form that presents sound and silence.  Its common elements are pitch governing melody and harmony, rhythm made up of tempo, meter, and articulation, dynamics or variable sound intensity, and the qualities of the sounds called timber and texture combined into any one of many well-structured  formats.” (1) A working definition of Rap, or Hip Hop, is, “A sub-culture of music developed into it’s own genre consisting of a stylized rhythmic sound that commonly accompanies rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech…

  • How To Write a Killer Cover Letter: Ask Not What The Company Can Do For You

    Katie Reilly
    15 Jul 2014 | 9:29 am
    "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."- John F. KennedyIt's a profound and famous quote about the responsibilities that come with citizenship, but it can also be applied to job searching by changing a few key words: "Ask not what the company can do for you, ask what you can do for the company." So what does mean? It means that if you're writing your cover letter all about why you want to work at that company and what you hope to gain you're doing it wrong.

  • Alvin Youngblood Heart: Reviving an American Tradition

    Stephen Sherwood
    1 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    Its been called the devil's music, others say its the truest representation of the human spirit; either way, the blues remains one of the most significant happenings in the history of American music. Traditionally, the music was passed on from one kindred generation to the next. It was played in the shacks where they lived and sung in the fields where they worked. Over time that tortured but resilient sound was picked up by a main stream audience as it evolved into the most iconic genre in American music, Rock n' Roll. Since then the appreciation for deep and authentic blues has regressed to…
  • Album Review: Sia's "1000 Forms of Fear" Showcacses Vulnerability

    Nina Mohan
    23 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    "1000 Forms of Fear" appears to be born out of Australian songstress Sia Furler’s attempt to cope with her wild success. It’s a refreshingly exposed album, if a bit aware of the greatness of its own ambitions. The first song is the single “Chandelier”, co-written by Jesse Shatkin. With a relatively short introduction and verse, its launch into a soaring chorus doesn’t feel totally earned, but certainly sets the tone for the whole album. Sia creates an interesting contrast by enveloping the bare lyrics in with an epic feel. Whether it’s the slow, pounding chorus of “Big Girls…
  • Concert Review: Little Tybee Brings Sweet Southern Sound to Tin Can

    Nina Mohan
    15 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    This weekend, Atlanta-based folk rockers Little Tybee graced the tiny stage at Tin Can Ale House in San Diego, lit coolly in front of blue and white hanging Christmas lights. After a brief sound check, singer Brock Scott’s light tenor sailed over the audience and immediately hushed the crowd. The rest of the band joined him in a dreamy tune.The band’s sound is often deemed “orchestral pop” despite featuring only one traditional orchestra instrument – the violin, played warmly by Nirvana Kelly. Perhaps they get this identifier because of the precision with which they execute their…

  • Discography Adventures – An Introduction

    slightlyoffkey
    27 Jul 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Anyone who’s ever read this blog knows that I tend to prefer complete albums over hit singles.  There’s just something about devoting 45 minutes to an artist’s (or band’s) vision that I find extremely enveloping – like a plush sofa or a warm blanket. While the world of digital music may diminish the physical need for albums, it presents album lovers like me with limitless possibilities in terms of consumption.  Not only can I listen to an album almost anywhere (with the possible exception of underwater), but I can also instantly summon a nearly infinite…
  • New Music Fix 7.21.14 – Morrissey, Luluc, and Fred Hersch!

    slightlyoffkey
    20 Jul 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Here’s what I’m checking out this week… MORRISSEY – WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS  It’s painfully easy for rock legends to phone it in as they get older.  In some cases it seems that all they have to is show up and “the people” go wild with enthusiasm.  Thankfully, Morrissey never jumped on that bandwagon. World Peace Is None Of Your Business is an adventurous album (lyrically and musically) which find the former Smiths frontman in top form.  It’s not the next Louder Than Bombs – but that’s a good thing!  The only thing…
  • ¡Discover! – Sun Club

    16 Jul 2014 | 11:00 pm
    After writing about Appomattox in my last ¡Discover! feature,  I was determined to explore other styles this week – perhaps write about an up-and-coming folk or jazz band.  While my stalwarts are still delivering (did I mention how good Joshua Redman’s new album is?) I failed to find an emerging artist that really stopped me in my tracks. Then I heard Sun Club, and quickly forgot my original plan… From the first note of their EP, Dad Claps at the Mom Prom,everything just seemed to work.  Rather than an amalgamation of carefully crafted elements, the band truly…

    Editors Note: Jazz legend Charlie Haden passed away on July 11, after the following post was written but before it went live. He was truly a master at his art, and his death is a tremendous loss to the musical world. My condolences to those who knew him. COUNTING CROWS – PALISADES PARK As a rule, I generally don’t review singles. That being said, the prospect of a new Counting Crows album is enough to make any reasonable man bend his own principles. While the new album, Somewhere Under Wonderland, isn’t due out until September 2nd, the Crows have graced us with…
  • ¡Discover! – Appomattox

    slightlyoffkey
    29 Jun 2014 | 11:00 pm
    For my very first posting of ¡Discover! I could think of no one better to feature than New York’s own Appomattox – namely because it seems like everybody here but me has been “discovering” them for quite a while (seriously Ecker, get with the program.) Appomattox – the band, not courthouse… Categorizing themselves as “distorted pop” – a deceptively complex designation – this unsigned Brooklyn trio has gained praise from artists such Mike Watt of the Stooges and Nels Cline of Wilco. Of course none of that praise would matter if the music itself didn’t seriously…

    Los Angeles indie-Americana duo, Smoke Season recently unveiled the music video for their new single, “Badlands.” The video was shot in the desert of Joshua Tree, CA and plays like an old Western movie. Stocked with Western staples such as revolvers, card games, cowboy boots and jean fringe, this video doesn’t disappoint. The duo’s haunting and sultry vocals create the perfect musical soundtrack for a drive through the desert. They chant, “There’s only bones on the dusty road.”

Tied To The Tracks (Release date: June 25, 2014) the band’s third release  was produced by Vince Herman, the incomparable lead man of the progressive “Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass” band Leftover Salmon.  Herman, a recent transplant to Oregon from his longtime home amongst the prolific Rocky Mountain bluegrass scene, lends his energy, creative style, and finely tuned ear to the production helm.

    How to Sing Better

  • Technique vs Style

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

    Andy Barnes
    24 Mar 2014 | 2:19 am
    Did you know that there is a natural way to sing with an open throat? That’s right, we are all born making sound naturally.Did you also know that your voice doesn’t have to deteriorate as you age. In fact, my singing teacher’s teacher was quite happily singing high C’s well into his 90′s and right up until the day he died. Most people seem to think that as you get older that you won’t be able to sing as you did when you were younger, but it’s a myth, your voice should get better with age, not worse. What’s The Problem I think we all have heard a…
  • How To Get Better At Singing – The Bottleneck Octave

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

    24 Mar 2014 | 1:46 am
    I don’t think I would be incorrect in saying that the majority of singers out there would love to know how to improve singing power and tone. In this article, I want to focus on the concept of resonance and how it applies to the human voice and how we can use it to answer the question of how to improve singing power and tone. Lets get started shall we. How to Improve Singing Power and Tone By Understanding Resonance I had an epiphany one day during a singing lesson when my teacher was explaining something to me. The revelation was this – the human voice is essentially a wind…
  • How to Improve Your Voice Quickly and Naturally Using Support

    Andy Barnes
    24 Mar 2014 | 1:22 am
    The concept of support in singing is foundational, and yet in my experience, it is very difficult to find any real explanation on what support actually is and how to employ it properly. My first singing teacher taught me that support was “pushing out”, and other singing methods say that you don’t need to worry about support at all. In this article, I will basically explain what support is and why it is the “cornerstone” or foundation of correct singing technique. Whether singing or speaking, correct support is the first port of call in answering the question of…

  • 11 Great Songs That Match To The Colors Of The Rainbow

    carmenjabier
    1 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    Music, for me, has this magical ability to be able to trigger your senses and bring forth certain emotions and memories. Whether it be a situation, a place, a person, a scent, or in this case, a color — it changes your mood from sad to happy or negative to positive. Below is a list of songs that I associate with each color of the rainbow (plus a few others). RED: Cherry Pie – Warrant Now I’m not sure if I’m including this song because I like it, because cherries are red, or because of the audition scene from Bring It On.  Either way, I could not think of a more…
  • 8 Dubstep Theme Songs You Didn’t Know Existed

    There are only a few certain truths in the world. Here are three of them: If you wash your car, it most certainly will rain before you have sufficient time to show it off. Winning the lottery will raise your family’s awareness of you…and how much money you have. If there is a good theme song (or a bad one for that matter) out there, there is most certainly a college student who will turn it into a dubstep song. If you’re not techno savvy, you probably can’t distinguish between dubstep and other types of electronic music. Being a techno-noob myself, I had to look it up. Besides being…

    Splendour in The Grass | Beginnings It’s just past midday in the outskirts of Byron Bay when I join in the line to enter the festival. Around me stretches a broad cross-section of Australiana. Teenage pixies with bullring piercings and pigtails shuffle eagerly in platform shoes. Longhaired surfies in felt hats laugh like no one else is around. Liberal married couples hold hands with their young children. Tie-died, dreadlocked hippies smile to themselves. Well-to-do girls from the city wear gumboots, though it doesn’t look like rain. A man in a Gorilla suit texts on an iPhone. A…

Loud young screaming girls with dental problems wielding camera phones in the hope of capturing the perfect selfie. Welcome to a night with The 1975.

It’s not that The 1975 suck. It’s just that it’s hard to relate to the kind of person who really likes The 1975. I don’t remember what it was like being an 18 year-old girl, possibly because I’ve never been one. These days, I imagine it entails a lot of acronyms. But…

    Phantogram took our breathe away when the dreamy, electro-flavoured Mouthful of Diamonds was released back in 2010 off the band’s debut album Eyelid Movies. The New York duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel produced a sound that was one full of beautiful ambient synths with gorgeous vocals brimming over the top. Ahhhh….what a love affair. Fast forward almost 5 years and welcome the new Phantogram. The band that performed at Metro Theatre in Sydney on Thursday night was closer to a punk band than that chilled-out beats band that long time fans would know. Barthel was wearing tight…

    Here at MU we love Iceland – and we want to know what is in the water over there (besides Ice of course) because with a population of just over 300,000, we cant workout how so many incredible and unique artists come from such a small place. Some of our all time favourites, Bjork, Sigur Ros, Of Monsters and Men and of course, especially after seeing him and his band live, now Asgeir. His gently spoken voice, and shy demeanour was not only synonymous with other Icelandic talents, but endearing to the point that it made the hearts of everyone in the crowd melt. What we loved about this…

Well, maybe you wanna do what these Russian kids did that turned their whole living room into a pool. Smart!

The images of the boys went viral after being posted on various Russian-language social media websites last night. ‘The water is about half a metre high, which means it is about half a ton…
