  • Elvis Presley’s sweet 1963 Rolls-Royce limo goes up for auction

    CBC Music RSS
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:03 pm
    It's a ride fit for a king — the King, in fact — and it can be yours, for a hefty price. Bonham's auction house has just listed Elvis Presley's Rolls-Royce Phantom V Touring, a high-end limo from when he lived in Bel Air, California. The luxury car is decked out with all of the cutting-edge gadgets of the day, including power windows, a Blaupunkt Koln radio, air conditioning, a bar and even a telephone. The engine was just as impressive — a 6.2-litre V-8 that could clock over 160 kilometres per hour. And while the car was originally a midnight blue, Elvis reportedly had it repainted a…
  • Watch KORG’s littleBits Transformed into Badass Keytar

    Right in the manual, KORG suggests that you might turn their magnetic modular system, the littleBits Synth Kit, into a keytar. But this is a sort of “attach all the modules to a bit of wood” affair. Meanwhile, in Japan… Pantograph is an art/design agency and animation house (site link – Japanese only). And when they got their hands on the Synth Kit, they did it up properly. Think beautiful, multi-colored cases, proper playable ergonomics – and a blinking light-up KORG logo. The results are enchanting: If you want one of your own and you’re passing through…

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:38 pm
    Whatever happened to the troubadour? The singer-songwriter who tells a story; sparks emotion, makes you think and reflect on previous times. They seem to have fizzled out in a world where r&b singers talk about finding the next girl, pop singers sing of happy, loved up relationships and even emo and punk rockers sing of relationship despair. That is of course, until Sam Morrow came along. Sam is an artist with a fascinating background – and I don’t mean the kind of background that you’d find on Britain’s Got Talent. This one is real and absolutely convincing when you hear…

    Emily Katter is an upbeat, curly haired, pop singer-songwriter hailing from the iconic streets of Manhattan. Her soulful sound has earned her comparisons to Alicia Keys, Natasha Bedingfield, and Robyn. Emily's new single, "Comfortable", a powerful ballad that explores the emotions of being in a long-term relationship and keeping the flame from burning out, was co-written by fellow NYC-based singer-songwriter, Hadar Orshalimy, and co-produced by Dan "Robopop" Omelio (Maroon 5, Gym Class Heroes, Lana Del Rey) and Eli Menezes (Lauren Hill, Trey Songz, Estelle).

    Following the release of single 'Time to Shine', Parisian duo The Penelopes (Axel Basquiat and Vincent T.) are now presenting its video. The brightest light casts the darkest shadow and The Penelopes disturbing video for their new single proves that. Starring French actress/musician Soko and directed byMattias Johansson, the video was equally inspired by the dramatic stories of kidnap, imprisonment and torture to have hit the news in recent years (see the Fritzl and Ariel Castro cases) and the turmoil Axel and Vincent faced growing up in the rough neighbourhoods of the Paris outskirts.

  • Future Hit: Sheppard’s “Geronimo” Is Almost Offensively Catchy

    Mike Wass
    23 Jul 2014 | 4:59 pm
    There’s catchy and then there’s “Geronimo”. Australian indie-pop collective Sheppard unleashed the unstoppable sing-a-long anthem at home earlier this year and scored their first number one hit (a rare feat for an independent act) and eventually sold triple platinum. The runaway smash soon caught the attention of overseas labels and the band is now a priority for Republic Records in the US. So what makes “Geronimo” so irresistible? Well, the giddy pop anthem has hooks upon hooks and the kind of chorus that gets lodged in your head from the very first…

    Angus & Julia Stone have unveiled another gorgeous cut from their self-titled third LP (due August 1 on Republic Records). The Australian brother and sister duo snagged legendary producer Rick Rubin to helm the album and his raw, less-is-more approach is very evident on “Grizzly Bear” — a melodic groove that channels ’70s Fleetwood Mac. “Yeah I seen you there, lookin’ all pretty when you brushed your hair,” sings Angus over breezy guitar and warm keys. Julia then joins him on subtle but insistent chorus (“Can I take you home? We can go anywhere…
  • Lana Del Rey Is A Disheveled Bride In The Latest Still From Her “Ultraviolence” Video

    Lana Del Rey‘s Ultraviolence era got off to a slow start — at least, visually — with her atmospheric but generally underwhelming “West Coast” clip. She turned things around with the wonderfully seedy saga that accompanied “Shades Of Cool” and the 28-year-old looks set to deliver yet again with her Nabil-directed “Ultraviolence” video. The Complex cover girl shared a black-and-white still from the extravaganza on Instagram and she appears to be dressed as a bride. Only, Lana looks a little worse for wear, which would tie in with the bleak…

    Questlove has defended Iggy Azalea in a new interview with Time magazine, calling “Fancy” a game-changer for hip hop. He also labelled it the song of the summer. The Roots drummer, who is producing a new live music TV show called SoundClash for VH1, was asked about the avalanche of criticism leveled against the Australian rap diva for everything from her accent to alleged appropriation of black culture. “We as black people have to come to grips that hip-hop is a contagious culture,” he said about Iggy’s eight week stint at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Now we’ve finally got a new offering from the music legend featuring himself and, well, nobody else. (Guess we’ll still have to keep waiting for that epic track Rodgers’ promised would feature “almost everybody that’s ever sung with” him.)

  • Mixtape Of The Week: Shlohmo & Jeremih No More

    Stereogum
    23 Jul 2014 | 11:43 am
    Jeremih and Shlohmo are an unlikely combination for a lot of obvious reasons. One is a black guy from Chicago who sings slick, radio-directed R&B, and the other is a white guy from Los Angeles who produces tricky, intricate instrumental bass music. They probably would’ve never gotten together if Yours Truly hadn’t matched them up to make the single “Bo Peep (Do U Right)” as part of the Songs From Scratch series more than a year ago, and they probably wouldn’t have kept working together, making the new free EP No More, if that first song hadn’t turned…

    Last year, Devendra Banhart put out the new album Mala, which included the brief but chilling folk song “Golden Girls.” Now, Liars — who this year put out the great and overlooked album Mess — have stretched that minute and a half to nearly 10 minutes in their sprawling remix. What begins as a minimal techno rework of the song eventually shifts into uneasy ambience before coming back to life as a percussive and creepy dance track that fits with the vibe of their new album. Listen to the remix, the original, and “Thank You For Being A Friend,” the classic…

    One of my favorite albums of all time is Brand New’s The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me. It’s an album that’s built as much on atmosphere as it is on songcraft, luxuriating in aimlessness tempered with short bursts of well-orchestrated chaos. When I learned that For Everest made a conscious effort to emulate that feeling on their new EP, No Jazz Rock, everything I knew I liked about the band clicked into place. Nowhere is this influence more apparent than EP centerpiece “Beyond The Brush” — it sprawls out in the same way as the very best of Devil And…

    SiriusXM has had its share of spats with consumer advocate groups regarding marketing practices over the years.  There have also been a handful of lawsuits centered around people receiving unwanted communications from the satellite radio provider, and suits complaing that SiriusXM is obtaining personal information about car buyers.  This latest lawsuit takes the cake though — SiriusXM is being hauled into court for allegedly stealing the patented envelope design of CCAH.

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.

Though I only got to listen to the early part of the show this morning, there is certainly a bit of sadness in the air.  Opie and Jim were the subject of the rantings of many…

    There’s a set of lyrics on the new Sarah Jaffe record, out with much anticipation next month, that sums up the whole over-produced and uneven affair. “Most people tell you they’re different / Most people tell you they’re onto something new,” she coos on the third song, “Some People Will Tell You.” “I do what most people do.” Sad. And too true. Jaffe no longer seems interested in art and heartache or, for that matter, the art of heartache; she now belongs to the rubber-stamped and homogenized masses.

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:22 am
    Late June is a strange time for music releases. The supposed “Summer Jam” song has been predetermined, usually well before summer begins, so we are resigned to Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” as the crowned queen of 2014 as early as June. Other songs come up to challenge, but the corporate mind has been made up. In the meantime, other releases wait at the starting blocks of early fall to make inroads to the all-important sales bracket of the Fourth Quarter. Here is where you’ll see a lot releases that would contend for holiday gifts and such. Between these two…
  • Legendary: Chapter 27

    23 Jul 2014 | 3:00 am
    The story so far: Allison’s night went from bad to worse when three of her soccer team mates turned on her during a vicious game of Truth or Dare. She ran off to Eric’s bedroom to hide. However, Allison has great friends, including Brian, who sat with her and talked her through everything, and Gwen who helped her get cleaned up. The year is 1987. ALLISON Gwen and I are in the upstairs hallway, on our way to leave the party. I’ve exchanged the Youngstown State sweatshirt for a Keith Haring Free South Africa T-shirt Gwen grabbed out of Eric’s room. The shirt is white and shows a large…
  • Weird Al Bids a Fitting Adieu to the Album Era with “Mandatory Fun”

    Beau Dure
    22 Jul 2014 | 11:21 am
    Mandatory Fun might be “Weird Al” Yankovic’s last album. He finished his record contract and is looking at other means of distribution, having clearly mastered YouTube and other media that popped up 20-plus years into his career. Yet Al didn’t just give his own “record” career a resounding sendoff. He has recorded the last album we’ll ever need. Here’s why: 1. It’s his best album. Shocking, isn’t it? The typical artist in his fourth decade is releasing cover albums to get attention or just hoping to do anything to get new material…

    Jim Beckmann
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:50 pm
    photo by Charina Pitzel (view set) If Sharon Van Etten were a different person, her brutal honesty would be too much to bear. On her terrific new album, Are We There (read our review of it here), no painful moment, self-critique or regret is too deep to share, and there are some emotional depths in her songs! But just as her songs never dwell in melancholy, Sharon herself is such bright light and an entrancing beauty in sound and spirit that she’s a joy to hear and watch perform. And she’s one of the goofiest and spontaneously funny people you’ll ever meet. In fact,…

    We were afraid when Eric D. Johnson announced the demise of the beloved indie pop band Fruit Bats that we’d heard the last of him. But as he put that project to bed, during a recent in-studio, he assured KEXP listeners he’d be back with more music. We just had no idea how soon! Barely six months since the final Fruit Bats shows, Johnson is back with a solo project under the moniker EDJ. More personal than Fruit Bats, EDJ songs are, in his own words, “simple stories, some about losses, a few about disappointment and regret, but also of hope and perseverance”. Earlier…

And yeah, you’re probably going to want to consider one, certainly at this price. (We’ll just be pitting it against the KORG volca beats, which we know we love.) Akai has posted an official, if preliminary and unlisted, video to their account, and made the presence known to readers of their forum.

    Polyrhythmus is the machine generator of notes and rhythms many of us have long dreamt of. It does Euclidean rhythms – symmetrical divisions of time that beautifully produce common polyrhythms (not just for nerds, but modeling a lot of popular rhythms – see the research of Godfried Toussaint). It’s also capable of making other rhythms. It can be polymetrical or polyrhythmic. It’s … also an arpeggiator. It also automates parameters and MIDI Control Change messages. It has loads of modes. It’s modular. It’s dynamic. It’s amazing. It’s a…

That visceral, primeval emotion, that chill that prickles the hairs on your head – that might start to describe the eerily-lovely wonderlands of Christina Vantzou.

    Right in the manual, KORG suggests that you might turn their magnetic modular system, the littleBits Synth Kit, into a keytar. But this is a sort of “attach all the modules to a bit of wood” affair. Meanwhile, in Japan… Pantograph is an art/design agency and animation house (site link – Japanese only). And when they got their hands on the Synth Kit, they did it up properly. Think beautiful, multi-colored cases, proper playable ergonomics – and a blinking light-up KORG logo. The results are enchanting: If you want one of your own and you’re passing through…
  • Production, Beyond the Track: Mad Zach on Collaboration, Combining Tech and Technique [Interview]

    Peter Kirn
    21 Jul 2014 | 8:49 am
    “Producer”: in electronic music, this used to mean some person who makes tracks. Today, some special electronic musicians go way beyond that role. They’re combining skills partly because it means diversifying income, but also out of a real love for doing a variety of stuff. They’re holed up in the studio making music, sure – but they’re also finding collaborative ways of doing that, often online, and sharing skills and sounds as they develop them. It’s a more open, connected approach to electronic musical practice. And Mad Zach is a great example.

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

I recently got to the box that held most of my soul/funk/jazz/Latin compilations and I was surprised at how few of them I felt the urge to keep.Back when I had a weekly radio show on KALX FM (1994-2004), these kinds of comps served multiple purposes. First and foremost, they helped fill those 3 hours of airtime every week; you figure your average album may only have 2-3 cuts you’d want to play but almost by nature, a well-curated comp is meant to be chock-full of awesome tracks.But even more importantly,…

The angelic backing vocals and seraphic strings that periodically emerge give the song a heavenly relief – a bittersweet release of giving yourself into a formless and […]

The cassette, Wrong, was mastered by Warren Hildebrand (Foxes In Fiction/Orchid Tapes) who seems to be everywhere these days.   Another thing that’s everywhere (transitions!) is Masullo’s voice in this new song, Cave. There’s like 30 of him filtered through half industrial percussion, half iced-out guitars and looped around until it sounds like a bedroom choir in a…cave. Listen below.   The post…
  • Death Valley Girls Announce New EP, Electric High, Share Tour Dates

    Eric Davidson
    23 Jul 2014 | 11:26 am
    Death Valley Girls. Their new EP, Electric High, comes out August 19. The cover art screams all 1979-Raw Records-cum-1990s-Rip Off Records punk. Their sound skews a little more riff-rock snarl. The femme singer, Bonnie Bloomgarden, formerly of 2000s NYC greasers, the Witnesses, is almost comically snotty, almost. They had a cassette on Burger (sold out), and apparently they’re based in L.A., but their dive-ready crunch implies cold city grit. Patty Schemel from Hole and Upset is in it. And that’s about all you need to know for now, pal. They’ve got a tour coming up this…
  • Listen: Shura – “Just Once”

    Lizzie Plaugic
    23 Jul 2014 | 9:55 am
    London-by-way-of-Moscow singer Shura dropped her debut single Touch way back in February. It was a great, shoulder pad-free, ’80s-style, sashaying synth jam and I was very excited to hear more. Six months of waiting later, here we are with single number two.   Just Once is a more delicate track, with breathier vocals, in-the-shadows percussion, a slick guitar interlude and lines like, “If you get my name wrong, I won’t get pissed off/cause I wish I was somebody else.” No word yet on a full length. Listen below.   The post Listen: Shura – “Just…

    TOPS – Photo by Rebecca Storm CMJ Music Marathon alums TOPS dropped a 7-inch late last month and are now prepping a sophomore LP for Arbutus Records, Picture You Staring. The album’s new single, Way To Be Loved, is a skidding, half-shy pop track with singer Jane Penny sounding like a pair of eyes peeking from around a corner. The full album drops in September, but for now, you can listen to Way To Be Loved below.   The post Listen: TOPS – “Way To Be Loved” appeared first on CMJ.

  • Amazon Prime Music Adds Lots Of Songs. Let's Hope They Stop There!

    Clyde Smith
    23 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    Today Amazon announced the addition of "hundreds of thousands of songs and hundreds of new, expert-programmed Prime Playlists to the Prime Music catalog." Obviously this isn't the same as licensing current hits from the major labels but you can already see it turning the tide in some of today's press coverage. But even with major label licensing Amazon won't win by building a superior product. In fact, I don't see them ever being the top music streaming service. Yet I do expect them to create a great deal of pain as they continue their march to dominate the 21st Century. I bet I win for the…

  • Roll over, Rimbaud: P. F. Kluge, Walt Whitman, and Eddie and the Cruisers

    Julia Callaway
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:30 am
    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…
  • In remembrance of Elaine Stritch

    LaurenH
    18 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    Oxford University Press is saddened to hear of the passing of Broadway legend Elaine Stritch. We’d like to present a brief extract from Eddie Shapiro’s interview with Elaine Stritch in November/December 2008 in Nothing Like a Dame that illustrates her tremendous life and vitality. “What’s this all about, again?!” came Elaine Stritch’s unmistakable rattle of a voice, part Rosalind Russell, part dry martini, part cheese grater, on the other end of the phone. I was taken aback. After all, we had spoken the day before and the day before that. On the first call, she had told…

    12 Jul 2014 | 1:30 am
    By Mark Curthoys Behind the victory anthems to be used by the competing teams at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, which open on 23 July, lie stories both of nationality and authorship. The coronation of Edward VII in 1902 prompted the music antiquary William Hayman Cummings (1831-1915) to investigate the origin and history of ‘God Save the King’. While the anthem had become ‘a sacred part of our national life’, Cummings could find no reliable trace of single authorship of its words, though concluded that the aptly-named organist and court musician John Bull (1559×63-1628) had…

    10 Jul 2014 | 3:30 am
    By Rhiannon Mathias My father was a man of exceptional energy. Warm and generous in character, he lived several different kinds of musical lives. First and foremost, of course, as a composer, but also conductor, pianist, public figure, Professor of Music at Bangor University (1970-88) and Artistic Director of the North Wales Music Festival (1972-92). All these different strands amounted to a phenomenal workload, and took up a great deal of time, but he felt that he couldn’t write music 24 hours a day, and that he could give something meaningful to society and move it on. It did mean that he…

    17 Jul 2014 | 2:28 pm
    The seemingly indestructible diva has died at the age of eighty-nine. Sarah Larson remembers her on the New Yorker website. Stritch's immortal versions of "The Ladies Who Lunch" have been widely shared, so I thought I'd feature this clip from her final run of Café Carlyle shows, in which she singles out one of her most ardent fans. (Levine famously went to see Elaine Stritch at Liberty fourteen times.) The recent documentary Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me captures her splendidly.

Bonham's auction house has just listed Elvis Presley's Rolls-Royce Phantom V Touring, a high-end limo from when he lived in Bel Air, California. The luxury car is decked out with all of the cutting-edge gadgets of the day, including power windows, a Blaupunkt Koln radio, air conditioning, a bar and even a telephone. The engine was just as impressive — a 6.2-litre V-8 that could clock over 160 kilometres per hour. And while the car was originally a midnight blue, Elvis reportedly had it repainted a…

  • Weird Al Yankovic's latest album enters chart at #1, first comedy album to do so in 54 years

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:36 am

The success is largely the result of the eight videos, which spoofed hits from Pharrell Williams's "Happy" to Lorde's "Royals," and have garnered more than 20 million views in a single week. Ironically, Yankovic's record label, RCA, reportedly refused to pay for the videos, so Yankovic teamed up with sites such as Funny or Die,…

  • 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…

    My Sensaphonics custom ear molds arrived today (ear molds? gross.) and they feel amazing. I mentioned buying some Etyomotic Music Pros after demoing them at NAMM 2013. I thought it was fitting that I saw a link to this infographic today. On day 1 of NAMM I had my hearing tested and faired well. My hearing isn’t perfect from years of standing to the right of loud drummers. But I’m within a healthy range for a guy my age, maybe even a guy 12 to 16 months younger. Nostalgia for pre-teen hearing aside, I would probably be in a lot worse shape if I never used earplugs. The main point I…

    The trouble with prog-metal is the template it provides is inherently restrictive. The current wave, best characterized by the sound that’s often called ‘djent’, has reached a point of saturation — it seems like just about every brave new sonic possibility has already been explored and then some. The monolithic bastion of this sound, Meshuggah, perfected it years before scores of bedroom projects attempted to tame it by introducing melodic and ambient flourishes. Towards the end of the last decade, when these bedroom projects mutated into full-fledged bands, they…

    Priyanka Singh
    21 Jul 2014 | 7:30 am
    Ashish Avikunthak indeed looks the part. Dressed in a dhoti and kurta, greying hair tied into a tight bun, and a moustache that drops all the way down to his lower lip, if someone was to point at him and tell me that he is an ‘experimental’ filmmaker, I’d quite easily believe it. However, he is quick to disagree. “I’m not a filmmaker. I am a film artist.” Rati Chakravyuh, Avikunthak’s latest work and his third film, is a 105-minute long, single-shot feature movie, wherein the camera is locked in a spiral motion. The script of Rati Chakravyuh was memorised in the span of one…

    9 Jul 2014 | 8:07 am
    Two years ago, I sat in a room with a motley group of friends trying frantically to follow seemingly nonsensical clues found in the room of a murdered man, all to to save the city from imminent annihilation. One particular girl was confused about why the cake was a lie. Was it a hint? I’d lost my father and brother to Portal a couple of months ago, I knew better. We continued to shine the UV light torch on the pages of a tattered diary, scouring for actual hidden hints among random pop-culture references. The apocalypse was coming and all we needed to do at that point was solve a basic…

  • Matthew Sweet On The Legacy Of “Girlfriend” + His Upcoming New Album

    Matt Wardlaw
    15 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    For the past few years, Matthew Sweet has been celebrating his classic ‘90s release Girlfriend with a series of full album performances. The shows which initially came about to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album’s release proved that Girlfriend remains one of the more well-crafted releases from the decade. It holds up well, which as you probably know, is not something that always is the case when you’re listening back to albums past. It’s fun to look back, but now Sweet is beginning to take steps towards writing and recording his next album which is slated to be released in…
  • Live From The Cleveland Agora…

    10 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    It's Tuesday afternoon and I'm minutes away from phoning Matthew Sweet for an interview when I happen to hit Twitter on my phone and see a breaking story that Hank LoConti, longtime owner of the Cleveland Agora has just passed away at age 85. The news hit me like a ton of bricks because Hank was always a guy who was so full of life that it was hard to imagine that he could actually be gone. He was someone that when you met him, you would be surprised to find out how old he was, because he always looked at least a decade younger than he actually was. And yet he had been sick, battling lymphoma…

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)…

    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…

  • 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 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…

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…

But nobody seeks us out at parties for our stories or makes Netflix shows set in the world of SEO. No, instead you have two choices when it comes to SEO. You’re either the nerdy Poindexter, sitting alone at his computer, muttering about meta descriptions and H1 tags, or worse, a snake oil salesman, promising the world that if you’ll just spend thousands of dollars on some magic formula that never quite seems to be finished, you’ll win the Internet.

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:47 am
    By Serhat Pala Most of us begin our days by checking for messages on Twitter, Facebook or Snapchat. Then we end our days posting updates and catching up with friends and family on Facebook and the other social media networks. Over 54 percent of Americans use social media on a daily basis. Some users check their accounts more than 10 times per day, according to data from Deloitte. But social media is not just Facebook. While Facebook still rules the roost, social media comes in all shapes and sizes: From photo and video sharing sites to social bookmarking to instant messaging to social…
  • FeedBlitz: Rewind the Week – App Edition

    17 Jul 2014 | 8:50 am
    I had a realization while looking at photos taken on a recent cross-country road trip to Oregon. There were typical “standing happily next to road sign” photos, some “standing looking not-so-happy next to cars loaded down with luggage” photos, and, I’m ashamed to admit, more than one photo of me and my 19-year-old niece standing (or sitting) side by side, both staring at our iPhones. I guess you could say we’re both addicted. I’m not rude about it—at least, I don’t think I am. I don’t keep my phone on the dinner table. I don’t glaze over and scroll through my phone when…
  • The Real Truth About SEO Success

    Simon Ashton
    15 Jul 2014 | 12:32 pm
    Let’s be honest, on the ladder of trustworthiness, search engine consultants fall somewhere between lawyers and members of Congress. But nobody seeks us out at parties for our stories or makes Netflix shows set in the world of SEO. No, instead you have two choices when it comes to SEO. You’re either the nerdy Poindexter, sitting alone at his computer, muttering about meta descriptions and H1 tags, or worse, a snake oil salesman, promising the world that if you’ll just spend thousands of dollars on some magic formula that never quite seems to be finished, you’ll win the Internet.

    10 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
    By Eleanor Pierce One of the things I find most exciting about this time of year is farmer’s markets. See, I live in Central Oregon, where the High Desert climate limits the growing season, so these open air markets are really a summertime affair. And from the first local strawberries to the last of the summer corn, they just make me happy. And honestly, so do some of the other not-so-healthy foods of summer, from snow cones to burgers and brats. I guess I’m just an incorrigible foodie. So naturally, while I was rounding up a few of my favorite news items for this week’s FeedBlitz:…

    By Ann Marie van den Hurk When Honey Maid released an ad touting their #thisiswholesome campaign in mid-March 2014, they joined other brands such as Cheerios and Chevrolet in showing the diversity of American families today. They also joined those brands in having to manage a social media crisis. These brands are reflecting the changing face of American families.

  • Joint Cafe + Workspace in Bangkok

    19 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Working in a shared space - in a café or a rented-by-the-hour office - is nothing new, but sometimes a concept pops up that is worth a second look. Now into its third week of life, Joint Café + Workspace in Bangkok stands out in its whiteness. We will not speculate on what it will look like after a few months of coffee spills and foot traffic, but for now, it appears inviting like a new notebook, all ready to be filled with people, ideas and inspiration. The space, designed by Thailand’s 56th Studio, is located on the 12th floor of the Asia Hotel’s car park building.

    We are now officially suffering from office envy and the object of our feelings is located in Poland, in a former cable factory in Zabłocie, a post-industrial district in Kraków. It was designed for the web technology consulting firm u2i by architect and urban planner Justyna Friedberg of Kraków-based Morpho Studio. The obvious breathing room – so often lacking in offices – is clearly evident here. White, ash wood, natural light. Somehow we can imagine thoughts flying freer in a space like this, with this much openness and light.   The real gem of the 800…

    Do you really think there is an interior environment that wouldn’t be made more beautiful, more tranquil, more cool with the addition of a peaceful image of ocean scenery? We don’t think so. Without a doubt, the cure for the visual noise and image overload in our lives comes in the form of a stunning photograph by Luke Shadbolt of the central coast of NSW in Australia. The picture seem like an oil painting, but it is in reality an expertly composed photograph.

In that time, he's been a grim defender, a campy comic, a smiling "put-'er-there-old-chum" mentor, a shadowy vigilante, a dark knight and a box office bonanza. But in all that time, he's rarely been what he started out as: a pulp hero.

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:16 am
    The clues to figuring out what you were made to do are closer than you might think. I think about calling, purpose and life's work every day. I don't take breaks. I don't take weekends off. I don't take vacations. It seem a little obsessive, but here's the thing: I do it because I love it! I don't take breaks because this is what I do on my breaks from other things. I haven't always been like this. For a long time I spent most of my days trying to fit into a job that didn't work. It was like getting stuffed into a locker by a bully— except I was the one doing it. It was very painful.

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

I hated it passionately. I complained to my friend that it was the worst thing I'd ever heard, and it must be some kind of joke. The second time I heard Tom Waits was a year later, when my roommate played me “Singapore”, and I hated it just as much. I still thought it must be some kind of in-joke.

When they ask my advice, they think I'm going to say, “Yes! Quit! Go for it!” But instead, they're surprised at my suggestion: Remember how Tarzan swings through the jungle? He doesn't let go of the previous vine until the next vine is supporting his weight. So my advice is: Change careers like Tarzan. Don't let go of the old one until the new one is supporting you. And make sure you don't lose momentum.

    There will come a day when we attain representation and fair treatment as a rule rather than an exception, but until then, we need to let our peers know when and where they will be safe and appreciated. If tech wants to continue to advance scientifically and economically at its historical rate, it will need to advance culturally first. We are supposed to be the cutting edge, after all.

    “The truth is, one of the problems in talking about this stuff is that saying “women and men are the same” is not the same as saying “women and men are equal.” Equality is not predicated on absolute likeness, nor should it be. 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…

  • 20 Underrated Pop Albums From the Last 20 Years

    Jillian Mapes
    23 Jul 2014 | 12:17 pm
    By its very nature, pop is the least underrated genre of music — if you define underrated-ness by commercial success alone. Sure, a pop star may not live up to sales projections and be dubbed a flop for selling hundreds of thousands of copies, but there’s also the critical side of this specific coin. Many well-performing pop albums — in comparison to their lauded lead singles — get no critical love upon release and little consideration for the pop canon down the line, despite being embraced by the music-buying masses (see: Faith Hill, Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne). Of course,…

    In a new clip from Naomi Foner’s Very Good Girls, Elizabeth Olsen sits in a Greenpoint cafe (perhaps you recognize it) strumming Rilo Kiley’s “Go Ahead,” the opening track from Take Offs and Landings. Fittingly, the film is about two girlfriends getting ready to take off and start new lives in college… and landing on the same guy. In the clip, we get a sense of this tense relationship, with Olsen spilling her heart in a sweet, diminutive Jenny Lewis imitation, while Dakota Fanning grasps the hand of the man to whom Olsen is singing.

    When Pete Wentz recently announced the relaunch of his label Decaydance Records (this time as DCD2), the Fall Out Boy bassist noted that he’d be focusing his energy on two artists: New Politics and LOLO. The latter is Lauren Pritchard, a Tennessee-bred soul-pop singer starting to make waves stateside after a brief UK rise back in 2010 under her birth name. Some may recognize her voice from Panic! At The Disco’s recent hit, “Miss Jackson.” There’s always been a slightly seedy edge to LOLO’s music, so the murder ballad tinge of her latest single, “Hit…

    From Rap Rehab: While watching the video for “Hot N****” by Epic Records’ newest artist Bobby Shmurda, I could hear a voice in my head repeatedly cry out, “the music industry hates Black people.” Out of countless amazingly talented unsigned artists waiting for their big break, why would a record company sign yet another half-ass artist whose message is all about death, murder, guns, and more death?

  • Single Serving: Phantogram – Black Out Days (Future Islands Remix)

    Matthew Hickey
    23 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Here’s a remix worth a few minutes of your time (or maybe even a few hours). Future Islands take Phantogram’s “Black Out Days” and give the tune a whole new profile with darkly-lit synths and a slinking bass line. The result is both soaring and mysterious. Take a listen. Phantogram is heading out on tour in support of their sophomore effort VOICES. You can see a full list of tour dates here. You can score a copy of VOICES on vinyl here.

  • Single Serving: Spoon – Inside Out

    Matthew Hickey
    22 Jul 2014 | 9:27 am
    We got a new Spoon jam for you this morning, but (fair warning) this isn’t the type of tune you’d normally expect from the band. It’s got a dreamy crystal palace-like vibe that glistens brightly with sparkling, feather-light harpsichord accents. In fact, the whole song would probably float away to the heavens if it wasn’t being held to the ground by a chugging rhythm to accompany frontman Britt Daniel as he sings, “there is intense gravity / I’m just your satellite / time’s gone inside out.” You can preorder They Want My Soul now in…

And, now, we get yet another bite by way of new single “Beggin For Thread.” It’s a shuffling, atmospheric jam that nicely balances both energy and ambiance. You can hear more of Banks’ music here. You can score a signed deluxe edition of Goddess (plus instant download of 6 tracks from the album) if you pre-order it on vinyl here and from iTunes here. 
  • An Interview With Zella Day

    Andrew Brandt
    21 Jul 2014 | 11:02 am
    Zella Day is an up-and-coming pop artist based out of L.A. who’s being dubbed (somewhat misleadingly) as the “happier version of Lana Del Rey.” While that’s an impressive comparison for a 19 year old, Zella’s songs of summers and ex-lovers are good enough to stand on their on; and with an album and future tours in the works, they soon will. I caught up with the promising performer earlier this week as she was returning from a mini tour. This is an edited transcript of our chat. How was the tour? “It was great! I went to New York and played the Brooklyn Bowl, and then I went to…

It takes away from the fairly nice vocals from both Chris and Usher and the flow of the melody, but until that part… it works.

That’s what it is and was that attracted me to music. Not what I see, but what I hear. Not that the visual doesn’t play a part, but it should never supersede the sound. So let’s take a listen to this classic together. Close your eyes and let the music take you away to somewhere nice for a few minutes. It’s all about #TheSound

    Trace Adkins Touring Despite Personal Struggles And Strife In a recent Clickitticket article, I waxed poetically about how performers feel more at home on the stage than anywhere else.  I wrote that in reference to Marc Anthony and his many girl troubles but the sentiment also applies to country music superstar Trace Adkins. "It's good to be back on the road. That's what we do. That's my life. I'd die if I'm not on the road." – Trace Adkins Trace Adkins and his band, the Sarepta Gentleman’s Club, returned to the road in early June.  Adkins and company will live out of…

    Question: Where can I find a book or website (really anyplace) that shows ABSOLUTELY every scale.  for example….enigmatic, altered,  neopolitan,  hungarian,  ukranian,  phygrian. -Brent Carraway My response: Probably the most comprehensive book is by Slonimsky. The thesaurus of scales and melodic patterns. Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns John Coltrane among others learned some things from this book. If you don’t yet know your major scales, it’s not necessarily something you need right now. But if you know your major scales, minor scales, diminished scales,…
  • Saxophone Tuning Guide

    Neal
    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.

    Neal
    11 Jun 2014 | 2:34 pm
    Composed by Alan Menken. Won the Academy Award for best original song. Great melody, influenced by the Calypso style. Under the Sea Sheet Music. One time I was playing with a jazz combo and our bass player Fred did ‘Under the Sea’ for his solo, it worked pretty well. Learning small pieces of melodies and throwing them into your solos can be something that is fun and the audience will enjoy. Try learning this by ear. First note is given, E on tenor sax and B on alto sax. For tenor sax and soprano sax there are no sharps or flats. For alto sax and bari sax there is one C#. Related…
  • “Does it make a difference on what reed you’re using? (on saxophone)”

    Neal
    10 Jun 2014 | 3:22 pm
    Does it make a difference on what reed you’re using? I have a 2 1/2. Should I be trying the lower and higher numbered reeds? Plastic? What about mouth piece? (playing for one month) -Jamie My response: Yes. The reed plays an important role in how you sound and how it feels to play the saxophone. I imagine that the 2 1/2 reed probably feels like a lot of resistance for you right now. My recommendation would be to try a 2 or 1.5. Not below that, almost definitely not above 2.5. The lower number means the reed should be softer and will bend more easily, which requires less air. The…

    Legendary Bowie bandmates, producer/bass player Tony Visconti and drummer Woody Woodmansey, are performing together for the first time since 1971. Yes… 1971 – that’s a total of 43 years! It’s worth going to see it just out of pure curiosity. Fronting the band is Glenn Gregory of Heaven 17 and on saxophone and guitars is Spandau Ballet’s Steve Norman. Back on 22 February 1970 David Bowie took to the stage with The Hype to perform what is widely accepted to be the first Glam Rock performance. The Hype represents a turning point in David Bowie’s career; a hugely…

Hanks Guitar Shop was the setting for our intimate interview and acoustic session, and with walls lined with guitars, it was the perfect place.

    Photos by Maren Farra It was my second or third time seeing John Butler Trio and this time it was at the o2 Brixton Academy with a sold out crowd. Brett Dennen took the stage on acoustic guitar with another guitarist to warm up the crowd, which he did well. 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 –…

I have to say that the crowd at the small basement venue were definitely excited to see her perform in the city and they knew all the words, sometimes even singing over the top of her. Yuna gets lost in the music when she is performing and it’s clear that she really loves being creative and having music as a career. It’s not all she does though – along with working with Pharrell Williams in the studio, she owns her own lifestyle stores in…

In a new song written and recorded by regular Buffa’s performer Ruby Ross called “dB Blues,” Ross laments the ruckus caused by Torres’ lawsuit, which is seeking to revoke the bar’s mayoralty permit: “I know that the city has limits Which they tried to enforce out on Bourbon and can’t But I guess that we pissed off the neighbors And we never knew, we never knew” Ross goes on to…

    Posted by Jan V. Ramsey on OffBeat.com. Sometimes it’s so useful to see your universe from an outsider’s perspective. An old friend sent me some pages from the New York Review of Books that reviewed Richard Campanella’s Bourbon Street: A History and Sheri Fink’s Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital. I’ve started reading the latter, but stopped about 50 pages in because I think my Katrina PTSD kicked in and the whole horror seemed to be resurrected in flashbacks. It’s a hard read, at least for me, but it’s still on my list. Nathaniel Rich, the author…

    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 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,…

    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.

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…

    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).

    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 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”.

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…

For a blog that once prided itself on near daily posts for seven years, this is far from the norm. So, where has FensePost gone? After seven years of continual posts, exhaustion set in. I got burned out. Blogging as I once knew it and did it — a focus on album and song reviews, artist and music video features, and the occasional interview — grew stale and tired. Something needed to change. So, rather than…

    The official flyer A few of us might remember the compilation cassette tape put out by NME called C86, which introduced us to bands with weird names like the Soup Dragons, Stump, the Mighty Lemon Drops, Half Man Half Biscuit.  In the words of NME  “The album, first released on a cassette with NME in 1986, went on to inspire a generation of indie bands and features music by Primal Scream, The Pastels, Shop Assistants and The Wedding Present among many others.”  It was re-issued with a lot of extra fun and previously unreleased bits on a 3 CD box set this month.  To celebrate,…

    Mark E. Smith While Click & Dagger were in London this month covering the NME C86 re-issue, we were lucky enough to catch the Fall, still going after all these years! The show was in the poshest venue ever, under the stadium for Chelsea FC, Stamford Bridge, thus called Under the Bridge. You know what Mark E. thinks of “more cowbell?” Here’s what he thinks of it… All I said was “more cowbell!” He smashes it on the ground! He smashed the high hat into the drum kit. He nicked the mike for the kick drum, but later donated his own, tossing it in through the hole. The…

    Maria of I Break Horses (photo by Valerio Berdini)   When people come together, they can be the most destructive of forces, or the most creative.  Maria and Fredrik,  whose band is I Break Horses, are a wonderful example of the latter. I had the honor of talking with I Break Horses and Rival Consoles prior to their recent show at the Crocodile in Seattle. It’s not something they like to advertise or publicize, but Maria and Fredrik are unified in real life as a couple. They live together in Stockholm, Sweden, a city they describe as the most beautiful city, a place we MUST visit.

    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. You should also set the Dry/Wet to 100% before turning the effect on to avoid possible phasing issues. Remember that you are not looping the original audio source. It will keep playing in the…

    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.

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…

He used sound collages to express his drugged, angst-ridden haze, and his debut album,  “Swung from the Branches,” was born.  The album’s 2010  release inspired Hildebrand to work full-time, and, as a result, he started his own Orchid Tapes record label.

If you have any doubts about this man being a top quality singer, just take three minutes of your time to hear “Last Stand”, an incredibly touching melancholic tune with a kind of epic undertone. This track,which is included in his debut EP, was produced by SOHN who appears again in the production credits for Kwabs’ new work. The latest result of this collaboration is “Something…

The songs of their forthcoming debut EP have just the right ingredients to make any party worthwhile. We can find a slightly suggestion of the kind of latin rhythms that Mala went on searching in Cuba ( “Long D Tom”) and smooth electro-pop with better drops than Grimes’ Go (“Qwenstafari”) in less than sixteen minutes of music.

    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…
  • Frequency Modulation – It’s Not So Bad Part II: Synthesizing Bells

    It’s not for nothing that FM is famous for bell sounds. 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…

    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.
  • Three kHs ONE Tips

    19 Dec 2013 | 6:26 pm
    I’ve had the ONE Re since before it was released (I was a beta tester) but I’ve never said much about it, here or elsewhere. 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…

    20 Jul 2014 | 3:02 pm
    In their heyday, which never ended if you're a Deadhead, the Grateful Dead were distinguished by great tunes, long jams, and exquisite, poetic lyrics. Lyricist Robert Hunter, the silent member of the band, will perform some of the Dead's iconic songs over the next few nights at City Winery.  More than a wordsmith, Hunter was integral to the band, particularly in their mind-bending, culture-changing early years. This is an historic event for anyone who loves rock history and wants to revisit those far-off but forever influential times. Tickets and info on the City Winery website.

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.

    Ecuadorian-American producer Roberto Carlos Lange has been releasing tracks as Helado Negro since about 2009, but he’s already made himself something of a staple in the widely variegated scene that is “electronic music.” Earlier in the month, Lange released “I Krill You,” a single off his upcoming “Double Youth” LP. The track layers high-pitched, fast-paced drum sounds on top of a plodding, deep bassline, sandwiching Lange’s powerful-yet-restrained vocals in between. The track is much more than just a dance beat. Layers come in and out, play with each other and complement the…

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…

Often it seems that people don't want that for the ukulele...The GuitarThe ViolinThe PianoDrumsStop telling people that you MUST play the ukulele this way or that. It's just a musical instrument....

    Next up in our series of exclusive mixes, is Art is Heart. The goal for the series is to get a glimpse into what inspires the artists that I write about, and to find out how what they listen to influences their own sound and style. With Art is Heart, Pollimer delivered in full. Listening to this mix, I can hear exactly how the music that he has been listening to has shaped his own sound as he worked on his Find Me EP. Pollimer pulls together an hour of songs that are bursting with atmosphere. Throughout the mix you’ll hear music from POLIÇA, Active Child, Sylvan Esso, MØ, and a…

  • Premiere: Neo-Safari – Electric Feel (MGMT x Henry Green Rework)

    Matt
    16 Jul 2014 | 9:01 am
    It’s been quite some time since I’ve heard MGMT’s massive hit, Electric Feel. It’s pretty awesome that the song has continued to stay so relevant, considering that it came out almost 8 years ago in the fall of 2007. That might as well be 80 years since music is so quick to come and go on the internet. People are still recording covers of Electric Feel, and producers are still remixing the track. Neo-Safari went a step beyond the typical remix. The producer remixed a remix of a cover of Electric Feel. Hopefully that makes sense. There’s so much separation here,…

    Brin McClory first caught my ear with his debut single, Forever 21, a year or so ago. It was just way too catchy to ignore. Clearly, I wasn’t the only one who noticed, because the song earned over 65,000 views on YouTube. After spending the past year perfecting his sound, while building up a dedicated fan base, Brin is now preparing the release of his debut EP, Far Out Places In anticipation of the project, director Tyler Yee was brought on board to oversee the making of the title track’s visuals. The music video features McClory on a joyride through the desert with an…
  • PLOY – The End of Time / Hold On

    14 Jul 2014 | 9:33 pm
    PLOY have kicked off an exciting new series for the month of July called Summer Songs. I had every intention on getting their first track, The End of Time, posted last week but life happened. I’ll try to make up for it now. Hold On is the second single in the line-up, and I have to say that these are some pretty strong offerings, so far. These tracks are essential summer listening. Both songs in the series completely radiate the warm feelings of the season in their own way. The End of Time has a chilled out tropical synth vibe, where Hold On is more of a hopeful love song that is…

    As the blazing hot sun continues to beat down on the UK, the debut single from Californian duo Golden Coast   seems like the perfect soundtrack. This is pool-side party music at it’s finest. With danceable drums, sunny synths, verby guitars and just enough rasp in the falsetto to offset the levity. The duo is made up of Steven Mudd and Denny White who you might recognise from previous appearances on our Lost On Radio Show.  The duo made the trek from the mountains of Colorado and the San Jacinto desert to Los Angeles nearly a decade ago, met in college (classmates and friends with Brent…

    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.
  • Is Jazz Worth Anything In Modern Society?

    27 Jun 2014 | 7:46 am
    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…

    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. In 1956, he began to tour the western world and contributed with his performing and teaching activities to increase the popularity of classical indian music in this part of the…

    Weird Al Yankovic"There is a form of laughter that springs from the heart, heard every day in the merry voice of childhood, the expression of a laughter -- loving spirit that defies analysis by the philosopher, which has nothing rigid or mechanical in it, and totally without social significance. 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.

October of last year I tentatively scheduled a post featuring young Disney triple threat artist Zendaya, fresh off the release of her new album at the time. In the eleventh hour I decided to make a change and went with a more prominent story. The decision paid dividends as Zendaya is really trending much more today, even more than her successful run to second place on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

    Many engineers overlook the attack and release controls on a compressor but they can affect the sound more than you think, especially during mastering. In the latest edition of The Mastering Engineer's Handbook, I outline what these controls can do when used across a full mix either during mixing or mastering."The key to getting the most out of a compressor is the Attack and Release (sometimes called Recovery) parameter controls, which have a tremendous overall effect on a mix and therefore are important to understand. Generally speaking, transient response and percussive sounds are affected…

    There's a little-known scientific field known as archaeoacoustics that studies the sound of historical environments and its effects on the human body. These environments can vary from ancient temples to caves, but it's been discovered that they all have a similar quality - a resonant frequency between 70 and 130Hz.Most of the cavities that archaeoacoustics study are spiritual in nature, and the theory is that the exposure to the resonant frequency of the chamber has a physical effect on human brain activity, even to the point of triggering a different state of consciousness without the use of…

Spectre is from their recent split 7" with New Brunswick psych-punks Astral Gunk via Pleasence Records, and immediately hooked me in with its guitar crunch and spooky yet melodic vocals. Compared to the rough-around-the edges tracks on their debut album Obsidian Spectre, this single shows off a tighter and more accessible sound that a lot…

They are a band that have a sound that would go down well here in the UK should they decide to part from their Queensland base. Velociraptor release their debut LP ‘Sneakers’ on August 15.

Taking influences from Radiohead, Animal Collective and Wild Beasts they’ve described their own music as “visceral and enveloping sonic landscapes to sink into” and their debut track ‘Humanise’ fits that bill perfectly with its sombre almost melancholy lyrics and atmospheric melodies.

    7 Jul 2014 | 6:18 am
    We may complain about the weather in England, but at least it produces a green and pleasant land. Through the window of the bus as I leave Madrid I see a spectacularly bleak landscape, reddish-brown lumps of earth exploding ungraciously out of the ground, a few straggly plants struggling to survive on their sides. I’m on my way to Torres de la Alameda, an outlying municipality of the city, for its annual ‘eco festi-bal’, Folkarria. Bals are big on the continent. There is a whole network of bands playing across Europe specifically for organised ‘bals’ or dances. These take place in…

    1 Apr 2014 | 6:35 am
    Dengue Fever are a six piece Cambodian pop group, infused with elements of indie, and psychedelic rock. The band was founded by the brothers Ethan and Zac Holtzman, both of whom discovered Cambodian music in the late 1990s: Ethan whilst travelling through Southeast Asia, and Zac via a friend at Aquarius Records. Wanting to form a group around their newfound mutual love, the Holtzmans set out to find a vocalist, specifically one which could sing in Khmer, the official language of Cambodia, they eventually found Chhom Nimol, Ethan recalls: ‘When we first witnessed the power of Nimol’s voice…

    15 Mar 2014 | 8:46 am
    Blues is the music of sorrow and hope; it is a cry, it is pain, it is joy and longing; it is about disappointment and the aspirations for its overcoming. Blues carries a strong message that remains the same in every language and Malagasy could be no exception. In the beautiful island of Madagascar, blues is called the beko and it is the force that fuels Malagasy Blues Song, the debut solo album of the African diva with the captivating voice, Lala Njava, released in spring 2013. Although this is her first solo album, Lala (Gabrielle « Lala » Raharimalala) is not new to music. Born in the…

    Brisbane twelve-piece (yes twelve) Velociraptor have unveiled ‘Sneakers’ the title track from their forthcoming debut album. Everything we’ve heard from the Aussie band previously has been undeniably catchy and instantly likeable. ‘Sneakers’ does nothing to change that with its garage pop tendencies taking inspiration from the likes of The Strokes and The Vaccines. They are a band that have a sound that would go down well here in the UK should they decide to part from their Queensland base. Velociraptor release their debut LP ‘Sneakers’ on August 15.

    Flash
    23 Jul 2014 | 8:47 am
    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.”

    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.

    I’m a big fan of Sofia Coppola. Her films are so atmospheric.  Her first feature-length film, The Virgin Suicides, has such a hazy aura; you can almost feel the humidity. What adds to the film’s uneasy ambience is the soundtrack by Air. When I see stills from the film, I can already hear the opening lonely piano notes of “Playground Love” in my mind. Virgin Suicides was one of the first films that made me realize that certain lasting images would forever be linked to songs in my memory. One of Sofia Coppola’s trademark shots is of sunlight filtering through tree branches. Whenever…

    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…

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…

    The Martin Guitar Co. Acoustic guitars have been a part of the landscape of rock, country, and popular music since before the terms were invented. Standing head and shoulders above other brands in the market like Gibson and Takamine are the incomparable instruments of Martin and Co. Martin guitars. They are at the top of the table among professional guitarists, both for the warmth and power of their sound and the sense of feel and expression that comes from the quality of their construction. Anyone who has invested in one of their models knows that they have bought a guitar for life, and if…
  • Guitar Sounds: Clapton, Hendrix, Slash or Vai?

    Stop wasting time emulating your hero’s and find your own unique sound! Time and time again I get students coming to me and saying I want to sound like Clapton, Hendrix, Slash or Vai…and so the list goes on. Only yesterday a guy started having lessons with me and said “I spent 20 years plus listening to effects trying to emulate Steve Vai until the penny finally dropped – I can’t!”. 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

    Hamish Craig
    22 Apr 2014 | 8:39 am
    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…

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

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

This is about my sister. Today is my sister Emily’s birthday. I have plenty of musical memories attached to my sister, because we grew up together and had similar musical influences/stories early on.

They just released their first track off of it, "Long Night," which has all the poppy beats of a Guster song that you love with a few 2014-ish updates. Check it: And it's also sent me down a Guster music spiral this afternoon, which is pretty perfect. Major props to these guys for always finding a way to keep their music new and exciting.

I was surprised by a few things (namely, the age and concert-going habits of The Paper Kites' fans -- more on that later), but it was the perfect level of mellow that I needed.Horse Thief, of Oklahoma City, were up first, and my first reaction was that they automatically got a check plus from TIOJ because of their hair and beards (really, I thought that they were Amish).

    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…

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. Sure, HR people want to know you are genuinely passionate and excited…

  • 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…

    Weight of the Sun - Commons (2014)The making of this album is truly a long story, and I'll do my best to give you my perspective in a concise format.  It goes all the way back a full seven years to when Rob Jones, the bass player, originally started a version of the band with some other guys.  Over the course of time, several members came and left, the music evolved, and even the name changed.  Now we are known as Weight of the Sun, but the band was previously called Chanauk up until early 2014, when we all decided it would be in our best interest to change the name to…

He was always about the money, clothes, cars, and jewelry. Richy began recording other artists, making beats, and making money off music as well.

    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

    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…

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.

    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…

    WILLIE NELSON – BAND OF BROTHERS I can’t tell you what a relief it is to see that the Red Headed Stranger still has his writing chops. For me – and perhaps most of my generation – Willie Nelson has always been more of a cultural icon than creative artist.  Sure, we’re familiar with some of his big hits,  but we rarely give a thought to the sheer volume of truly amazing songs he’s written over the past fifty years (both for himself and for others).  While Band of Brothers doesn’t come close to filling this educational gap, it’s not a…

    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.”

The single, a straight, driving example of how to write an acoustic folk track with true momentum and subtle harmonies, mixes Clyne’s Scottish folk heritage with a touch of Americana in the vocal arrangements –…

    Last month, YouTube flatly stated they would block videos from independent record labels they could not reach a deal with. After an uproar in the music community, YouTube has not blocked any videos so far and is allowing more time for negotiations. Since this slight change in attitude, more than 800 Independent labels have formed a pact seeking fair treatment from music streaming services. Initiated by the Worldwide Independent Network (WIN) - the organization that represents the interests of the global independent music community – they issued a Fair Digital Deals Pledge that labels…

    The general public is still confused about how on-demand streaming music is different than Internet Radio. Beats Music and Spotify are on-demand streaming services. Pandora and iHeartRadio are Internet Radio services. On-demand streaming means you can immediately play the music (song or album) you search for. Internet Radio allows you to search for a song, artist or genre, but then will play a continuous stream of songs similar to your search criteria. Eventually it may even play the song you searched for. This is often referred to as a lean-back listening experience. On-demand streaming is…

Written and recorded by the band themselves in London, the song describes how, despite everything being right at our fingertips, the digital age can be anathema to feelings of connectendess and instead instill feelings of isolation and lonliness.

    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…

    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…

    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.

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.

  • 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…

    What makes tattoos permanent? Ever wondered how tattoo ink stays permanent? It has a lot to do with the immune system. The earliest recorded tattoo was found on a Peruvian mummy in 6,000 BC. That’s some old ink! And considering humans lose roughly 40,000 skin cells per hour, how do these markings last? Claudia Aguirre details the different methods, machines and macrophages (you’ll see) that go into making tattoos stand the test of time. Lesson by Claudia Aguirre, animation by TOGETHER.

    So How About Some Spray Cake?   Spray Cake is organic cake batter you spray from a can. You can prepare and bake a single cupcake in less than 60 seconds. Two Harvard students are working to patent Spray Cake, which releases cake batter out of a dispenser that works like a whipped-cream can. The accelerant in the can releases air bubbles inside the batter, eliminating the need for baking soda and baking powder so the confection is ready to eat almost instantly. It takes 30 seconds to bake a cupcake in the microwave, and only one minute to bake a full cake.(Source: TIME Magazine)  …
