  • Play vinyl with Sonos

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

  • 5 Best Equalizer Settings Cheat Sheets for Recording, Mixing, and Mastering Audio

    13 Jan 2015 | 10:30 pm
    As audio engineers, we all know how frustrating it can be to listen to a recorded instrument and know something isn't quite right with the EQ.  This gets progressively more annoying if we cannot quickly identify exactly what's going wrong and fix it!  To make matters more complicated, we have it ingrained in our souls that we should only apply EQ in the "context of the mix," with everything else playing at full volume.  While this is generally true, sonic information from the rest of the mix can make it tricky for us to hone in on what's happening with a particular instrument's…

    Little Grim are literally brand new out of the box and comprise of four London teenagers who are hear to make a big impact from the very start with debut single ‘Vice’. ‘Vice’ is a highly confident affair where one of the hookiest riffs you will hear all year plays mind games with displaced grooves, biting bass lines and ambient falsetto vocals. It’s an altogether intoxicating neo-psych drenched single which leaves you yearning for the repeat button. The accompanying video is equally bold yet hallucinogenic with distorted imagery mirroring the ethos of the song which lead singer and…

  • Disney Wants GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Star Chris Pratt As The New INDIANA JONES

    Damen Norton
    27 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm
    Without question, my childhood hero was Indiana Jones.  I remember watching Raiders Of The Lost Ark for the first time and being completely consumed by the adventures of the titular professor/archaeologist/general bad ass and all of the crazy calamity that he found himself caught up in.  It was riveting, and to a child, it was like the end-all-be-all of modern filmmaking.  Nothing can ever top this, I thought to myself.  The following two sequels brought even more to the table, including a spirited casting choice with Sean Connery as Indy’s dad.  The fourth film, Kingdom Of The…

    Listen, I’m the kind of guy who is all about gender equality, because really, women do work harder than men – at least in my experience.  So, my head-scratching reaction to the news that Sony was moving forward with an all-female cast for the long-gestating Ghostbusters 3 film was based more on my personal connection to the original films.  To me, it’s hallowed ground, much like Indiana Jones and Back To The Future.  I really didn’t see the need for a third installment anyway, even if the principle cast of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie…

    Photo Credit: ComicBookMovie.comIt’s been a long and trying road for Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.  Initially contending with the stigma brought on by the studio’s first go of it (the doomed inaugural big-screen franchise with Jessica Alba and Chris Evans), Fox found themselves marred by an onslaught of set photo leaks and behind-the-scenes production rumors that spelled trouble for the project before the studio even got a chance to debut any promotional materials.  In the months since the film has wrapped production, director Josh Trank and screenwriter Simon…

    Since I was in my late teens when Harry Potter became an international literary phenomenon, I caught up to the tale of the boy wizard a little later than most.  Naturally, it wasn’t through the books, but through the movies that I came to appreciate its significance.  The films are tremendously entertaining, and you can chalk it up to the near-perfect casting of the three principal characters, played by Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson.  As Hermione Granger, the studious and brilliant companion to the Harry, Watson was terrific.  Since those films have ended,…
  • Fox Is Developing a Live-Action X-MEN Television Series From Producers of 24

    26 Jan 2015 | 7:57 pm
    We’re so wrapped up in the phenomenon of comic book movies that we need constant satisfaction.  While the films are great, we crave more of that sweet superhero action, which is why so many new titles are headed to the small screen.  For example, ABC is already underway with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter.  Netflix is getting in on the action with a slew of new Marvel projects like Daredevil and Jessica Jones.  Fox is also playing their genre card with the Batman origin series Gotham – although the jury is still out on that one (Spoiler: it’s not so good).

    We have to talk about historical perspective when we’re talking about mixtapes, and we have Lil Wayne to thank and to blame for that. Lil Wayne wasn’t the only one releasing great mixtapes during his mid-’00s monster run, and he wasn’t even the only one who was releasing mixtapes that were arguably better than his albums. Clipse, after all, were out there. But Wayne was so prolific, and so brilliant, for so long, that he basically rearranged the entire idea of what a mixtape could be. Before, say, the first Dedication tape, mixtapes were fun curios, ways to hear good…

Today, the band premiered the music video for the album’s shapeshifting lead-off track, “Thank You Come Again.” Directed and edited by comedian Pat Bishop, the video features Jenny Tuite repeatedly attempting to rob her donut-slinging band member Alex Molini and embarrassing the hell out of him in the process. It’s farcical and incredibly well-produced. Watch…

No word on whether “Renegade” will also be on the tape, but it will include features from Tei Shi, Rome Fortune, and Antwon. Between the warped…

    The Lone Bellow’s self-titled debut was one of the best-albums of 2013. A near-perfect blend of emotional folk-rock songs and gorgeous, soaring three-part harmonies, the group have returned with the follow-up, “Then Came the Morning,” which arrives on Jan. 27 (iTunes). On the surface, very little has changed about the group. Zach Williams is still singing his heart out, with Kanene Pipkin and Brian Elmquist lifting him up. But here, producer Aaron Dessner (the National) has fleshed out their sound with keyboards, horns and/or strings on most songs. This approach comes with its own set…

    It’s hard to believe We Only Said operates nearly 4,100 miles outside Louisville, once- and always-home of post-rock icons Slint and Rodan. They just sound so downright Louisvillian. But so it goes for the reigning post-rock champions of Rennes, France. The group – whose second full-length, Boring Pools, was released by Les Disques Normal earlier this month – is just the answer for people who have been jonesing for glassy guitars and oft-kilter time signatures, for example, during the long, sad musical absence of Jeff Mueller. But to say We Only Said is a carbon copy of Louisville…

A handful of true artists perfect a craft and then an uncanny number of hackneyed copycats sample bits and pieces out of context and bastardize the whole thing to no end. This is maybe no better exemplified than with modern electronic music. The scene changes faster than any other on the market, and the pioneers of the scene are forced to evolve just as fast as the rising tide behind them if they want to survive. But they get crowded by posers, and worse yet, with the…

Merge Records release the latest from Melbourne pop quartet Twerps, which KEXP Music Director Don Yates notes is, “a masterful album of jangly indie-pop reminiscent at times of Yo La Tengo, The Go Betweens and a host of classic Flying Nun bands, combining jangly guitars and driving rhythms with gentle harmonies, bittersweet melodies and emotionally frank lyrics.” Perth psychpop band Pond (featuring current and former members of…

  • BomeBox Lets You Connect MIDI, and Transform It, Any Way You Want

    Peter Kirn
    28 Jan 2015 | 9:29 am
    MIDI is a magical lingua franca between, well, sort of everything. But that’s only if you get it connected. And then once you do have it connected, you might want to tame its messages so they accomplish what you want. Now, the buzz is wearing off following last week’s avalanche of new music gear announcements. You might realize you don’t have $30,000 for a modular. But then, in the wake of that gear, comes one that flew under the radar – and it’s one of the most powerful-looking bits of kit we’ve seen recently. For years, Bome’s Midi Translator has…
  • Dave Smith Prophet 6 Synth: 6 Analog Voices, and a Dilemma

    Peter Kirn
    26 Jan 2015 | 1:22 am
    Never say never. Few would have imagined just a few short years ago that essentially all – not most, but all – the major 2015 electronic instrument news out of the annual NAMM trade show would come down to 70s-/early 80s-style analog synthesizers, in the form of keyboards and modular. Nor would you imagine two of the big names would still be Tom Oberheim and Dave Smith, alongside Korg and Moog. (Well, maybe Tom and Dave did – how ambitious were you three decades ago, gentlemen?) Certainly, no one ever expected to see the name Sequential Circuits again. But that’s what…

    Remember Pro Tools Free? Years ago, it was then-Digidesign’s ploy to give you the first hit of Pro Tools without paying, in the hopes you’d get hooked and buy the full version. Well, the idea is back, just with a different name. Pro Tools First is a stripped-down version of Pro Tools. And it’s one of three changes in Pro Tools 12 to how you buy and work with the flagship music production software. Pro Tools 12 is now something you can use for free (with various strings attached).

So, while you’re saving up thousands … sorry, tens of thousands of dollars for new analog gear from the 1970s, you might not be in the mood to ante up for a compressor or bass line synth. If you also couldn’t be bothered to carefully scour my article on how the purchasing of software is about to change forever, let me spoil some of the fine print for you: Collaboration tool Splice just quietly launched the biggest, best-organized database of free plug-ins I’ve ever seen.

    It would be easy to overwhelm you with descriptions of what Blind Mice sounds like. The New Bedford, MA-based band, which features Half Hearted Hero guitarist AJ Mills and former Ra Ra Riot drummer Michael Ashley, takes cues from a lot of '90s alt-rock, but I also hear a lot of more modern punk-rock in their new song, "Fifteen," which we're premiering in the replies. The easiest comparison to point to would be Polar Bear Club, with those gruff vocals paving the way -- but by no means is this band ripping off anything, incorporating shades of Jimmy Eat World and Third Eye Blind into…

    Talented and innovative artist, Jo’ Rodeo, releases his highly anticipated single “Billy” from his upcoming sophomore mixtape “Rodeo vs. Rodie”. Rodeo really standouts vocally on this track. While having a raucous and powerful voice, that he uses only when he wants to add more impact to what he’s saying, he also has a compelling way that he layers his voice even when he’s being blunt. From the ad libs to the addictive hook, Rodeo remains consistent in his flow. The beat, produced by Rio Mac, fits perfectly with Rodeo, which not only makes for a solid collaboration but it helps…

    Joe Quijano and His Fantastic Conjunto Cachana: A Barrio Obrero (Cesta, 196?, The World’s Most Exciting Latin American Orchestra and Revue) Maybe this is just me but I feel like Quijano never gets enough credit for leading a killer Latin band out of New York in the 1960s. Maybe it’s because he was never on powerhouse labels like Fania or Tico, preferring to go his own route with his own label, Cesta. Regardless, his output holds its own against the Fanias, the Cotiques, et. al. Sleep not. 365 Days of Soul, #27

    Destination Unlimited: It’s Gonna Be Alright (True Soul, 1978, Right Track ) Soul/funk album out of Arkansas(?). Was this the only full-length ever released on True Soul? The label’s best-known for a series of funk 7″s from the ’70s, including by Thomas East, and Now-Again created a two volume set from their releases. In any case, Destination Unlimited feels a bit left-field for the label, possibly because their album dropped considerably later than most of the singles did. Still a great sound though, especially on this slow burning instrumental. 365 Days of Soul, #25

The Larks minted a national smash with “The Jerk” and decided to capitalize on it by recording almost an entire LP of “Jerk” remakes. It’s not even obvious that “Soul Jerk” is a different song since the two sound so similar but hey, since we’re counting down 365 days of soul, I’m going with this “just because.” 365 Days of Soul, #24

  • Is Aphex Twin Dropping Hours of Unreleased Music on SoundCloud?

    28 Jan 2015 | 11:26 am
    Last year, Aphex Twin ended a 13-year hiatus with his surprise comeback LP Syro, and now it appears like the electronic music pioneer is making up for lost time by posting hours of unreleased music on SoundCloud. Given the elusive nature of the producer (real name: Richard D. James), we'll probably never know for sure, but since a SoundCloud page attributed to "user478363530" was activated three days ago, over 80 unheard songs and counting – tagged #earlyaphex and allegedly from Aphex Twin's stacked musical vaults – have been posted online. 20…

Indeed, we recently laid our heads at the glorious Relais Santa Croce (pictured above), an 18th Century palace turned lavish curiosity of a hotel—one whose public spaces offer a veritable journey into history.

    Seagulls The sound of Philly’s Seagulls inflates, deflates and swoons back and forth as such throughout this debut album, Great Pine. An almost gospel music-like heave rises out of their flannel-swaddled indie rock. A ’50s crooner aches to escape singer Matt Whittle’s lungs, and the music butressing his mourn has tinking piano, slide guitar and seductive song sturctures. Good taste too, with a fine, restrained cover of Big Star’s Thirteen. But odd electro-twitches, horn blaps and other unknown nosies peak out of the songs, and a vague air of woodsy weird keeps…

  • Zoë Keating vs YouTube: Is This The End of an Artist’s Right to Choose Where Their Music Appears on The Internet?

    Guest Post
    28 Jan 2015 | 8:30 am
    Guest Post by David Lowery on The Trichordist Blog This is a call to action folks. Many of you may already be aware of this blog post from  Zoë Keating detailing the new terms of the Google/YouTube “Music Key” service.  YouTube’s “communications manager” Matt McLernon has followed the Spotify approach and attacked Zoë Keating’s story as “patently false” although it looks like Google is not exactly backing up their “communications manager“. I’m pretty sure that Google is not truthful about their conversation with Zoë–you know Google’s lying when their…
  • Sony To Close Music Unlimited, Partners With Spotify For New Service

    28 Jan 2015 | 8:00 am
    One major sign that a sector is heating up is the quantity and quality of the deal making, as rivals jockey for position. By that, and almost any other measure, streaming music is on fire; and today's announcement that Sony Music Limited will shut down to be replaced by a new partnership with Spotify is a major win for the pre-IPO startup. Sony Network Entertainment and Spotify today announced a global partnership to deliver digital music to the PlayStation Network's 64 million active users. Under the deal, Sony will shutter its own Music Unlimited service this Spring, and launch PlayStation…

  • Consider the Bean: Simple Bean-Cooking Tips and an Easy Winter Meal

    George Howard
    11 Jan 2015 | 5:34 pm
    I’ve been super into cooking beans these days. Certainly, this has something to do with trying to eat largely vegan, but I also just really love beans. My general bean thesis (gbt) is that you don’t have to do much to the beans during the cooking process to get them tasting pretty good, and that what matters most is what you do after you cook them. This is a carry-over from when I was cooking a lot of meat; I never bought into the whole marinade for flavor concept. Certainly, some tough cuts of meat benefit from sitting in something acidic prior to hitting the heat, but this…
  • It’s REALLY time to ditch the rented Comcast Modem and buy your own

    George Howard
    8 Jan 2015 | 3:09 pm
    As their monopolistic practices regarding content come under fire from forthcoming OTT services like Sling TV, Comcast, unsurprisingly, is attempting to extract more revenue from customers via other “services.” To wit, as, Ars Technica noticed, Comcast recently upped their modem rental fee from $8 to $10 per month. The whole idea of modem rental is a business model predicated on information asymmetry. That is, most customers don’t realize either that they’re actually renting the modem at all or that they could buy their own modem. The internet tends to…
  • Chasing the Thrill: Miles Davis ‘Round About Midnight Vinyl

    George Howard

    [The Chasing the Thrill posts chronicle my adventures in trying to capture that ephemeral moment when song and audio fidelity come together into a sound that makes me forget everything else. Mostly it will be my notes on the vinyl that I listen to, but may include some non-vinyl music moments as well. If you’re interested in the set up I use to listen on, here it is.]     Like Rumours, which I recently wrote about, there’s not much that need be said about ‘Round About Midnight.

    George Howard

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

  • The inspiration of Alice in Wonderland: 150 years on

    Alice
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:30 am
    This Christmas, London’s Royal Opera House played host to Christopher Wheeldon’s critically acclaimed Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, performed by the Royal Ballet and with a score by Joby Talbot. Indeed, Lewis Carroll’s seminal work Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) has long inspired classical compositions, in forms as diverse as ballet, opera, chamber music, song, as well as, of course, film scores. Examples include English composer Liza Lehmann’s Nonsense songs (1908); American composer Irving Fine’s two sets of Choruses from Alice in Wonderland…
  • The myth-eaten corpse of Robert Burns

    Hannah Charters
    25 Jan 2015 | 1:30 am
    ‘Oh, that this too, too solid flesh would melt,’ so wrote the other bard, Shakespeare. Scotland’s bard, Robert Burns, has had a surfeit of biographical attention: upwards of three hundred biographical treatments, and as if many of these were not fanciful enough hundreds of novels, short stories, theatrical, television, and film treatments that often strain well beyond credulity. Burns has been pursued beyond (or properly in) the grave in even more extreme ways. His remains have been disinterred twice, the second time so that his skull might be examined for the purposes of…

    In late 2014, one particular video of a singer became immensely popular on Facebook. At first I thought my perception of its popularity might be skewed; I’m a singer, and have many friends who are singers, so there’s probably some selection bias in my sampling of popular posts on social media. But eventually I actually clicked on one of the many postings of the video on my feed, and with its 7.4 million views, it seemed likely that it was more than just my singer friends who had been watching it: Overtone singing, defined in Grove Music Online as “A vocal style in which a single…

    On 12 January 1959, Berry Gordy, Jr. founded Tamla Records in Detroit, Michigan. A year later it would be incorporated with a new name that became synonymous with a sound, style, and generation of music: Motown. All this week we’re looking the great artists and tracks that emerged from those recording studios. Previously, we spoke to Charles Randolph-Wright, the Director of Broadway’s Motown the Musical, which closes on Sunday, 18 January 2015; Larvester Gaither examined the role of Duets, Girl Groups, and Solo artists in Motown.

    Blog post submitted by: Vanessa Kaster, Esq., LL.M. http://iplegalfreebies.wordpress.com/ As a Grammy winning artist and a #1-selling solo artist in the U.S., Garth Brooks has interesting leverage and oomph when it comes to launching a new digital music platform called GhostTunes.  After resisting to sell his music through iTunes or any download store, Garth Brooks has begun selling his music digitally through the newly launched GhostTunes website.  Just this week, Garth Brooks released his new album “Man Against The Machine” on the service for $12.99 or in a “bundle”/package deal…

  • Numb Singing Or Speaking Voice? Question: What Are You LOOKING At?

    Judy Rodman
    12 Jan 2015 | 5:29 am
      This is yet another post I want to do on eyes for the voice. Bare with me, but as a vocal coach for singers and speakers, I talk a lot about eyes. This is because the sound of your voice can be dramatically changed by what the 'windows of your soul' are focused on. Even a great blind singer speaks with eye language, moving tissue behind and around the orbs of the eyes. Like an athletic event, when the eye is unfocused, movement creating vocal sound is, too. Like a camera eye must choose its focus, you must learn to choose your message delivery point, zoom in like a laser and block out…

Check your pulse, you're human. Most people who choose to work in any of the arts struggle with questions of validation.

    22 Jan 2015 | 9:55 pm
    ZimaFest is the latest entrant in Goa’s music festival scene, and will take place on the upcoming long weekend, on January 24 and 25. It’s an Indo-Russian festival with a straightforward motto – it’s as much for Russians (their headlining acts are a testament to that) as it is for Indians, and aims to give you a very laidback experience at a time when Goa is pretty much uncluttered in comparison to its raucous one-month-ago avatar. The first edition of ZimaFest was supposed to take place at the start of last year but due to a few sponsorship problems, the festival couldn’t take off.

    Among the stories that my grandmother told, the one in which Lord Krishna formed human pyramids with his friends to steal curd from the inhabitants of Vrindavan remains the most relatable. It taught me a valuable lesson — juvenile delinquency is endorsed by the gods. Even the festival associated with it — Janmashtami — is cooler than most Maharashtrian festivals, which almost exclusively involve drawn-out evenings at the houses of torturous relatives. Dahi Handi is celebrated by emulating the antics of Lord Krishna and his friends. Groups face off in a competition to form…

It is a whale belonging to an unidentified species whose call is pitched much higher than that of any other whale species. This makes it the loneliest whale in the world. “I read about the 52 hertz whale and it just stuck with me,” says illustrator/animator Nisha Vasudevan, who has displayed a distinct affinity for unfortunate monsters in her previous work. “I felt so sad that he/she is lonely.

Sissako returns to Mali for his first feature film since 2006’s Bamako, which also serves as the director’s best-known film.  In…

    Here we are at the start of the Year of the Sheep, and may we no longer be martyrs to our own following. In 1977, filmmaker Charles Burnett, wrote and directed his masterpiece Killer of Sheep. The film depicts a black working class family based in Watts, Los Angeles, whose patriarch works at a factory, slaughtering sheep for money. In the uncanny zone where the stoic meets the sensual, the plot unfolds, almost but not quite romanticizing a kind of defeatism, the opposite of the glorification of ghetto fabulous heroism that most Blaxploitation era films achieve. And he made the entire work…

Just when you anticipate that Malloy will follow with, “but God will see you through,” he sings instead about the internal strength and character that storms bring to our lives. Now released as a single, “Storms” is a fine contemporary gospel performance that Malloy builds in dynamic intensity from husky,…

    Have you ever experienced a perfect day, where the sun is shining, it's not too hot, and you're in a field running and laughing, butterflies and flowers all around you, birds landing on your fingers as you sing to them? No? I think the Free Design has. The brother and sister quartet blended unbelievable harmonies to some of the most upbeat, innocent songs of the late 1960s, the epitome of sunshine pop - "Daniel Dolphin," "Bubbles," "Kites are Fun" (they are!) and the subject of today's post, "I Found Love." Someone in the group must have just gone on the best date of their lives, for the song…

    A few weeks ago, I wrote about the new year and the new musical gems that lay waiting to be heard - whether it's from some old LP from 1973 or a new song from an obscure indie artist that immediately grabs my attention. We're just over halfway through January, and I've found the first jewel: Dave Caruso's "Champion," the second cut off his highly tuneful and first full-length album "Cardboard Vegas Roundabout," is like eating frosting straight from the jar. Splattered throughout the song are Beach-Boys harmonies - even the "ba, ba ba ba ba" syllabic lyrics that the Beach Boys were known for.

The beginning simple, almost comic," he says, as the music begins slowly in the background. "Just a pulse - bassoons and basset horns - like a rusty squeezebox. Then suddenly - high above it - an oboe," he exclaims, and you hear the oboe's glorious entrance as if on cue - "a single note, hanging there unwavering, till a clarinet took over and sweetened it into a phrase of…

This is not to say that the songs on the group's self-titled debut are derivative; instead, each song is so instantly accessible you swear you must have heard it before, and you find yourself searching your internal power pop catalog for the right reference. And sometimes, the influences are apparent; the intro to "Stubborn" sounds like Girlfriend"-era Matthew…

    You don't have to be an extrovert to be an effective spiritual leader Sometimes when I walk into church, I like to play the personality game. Having taken a psychology class in college, I feel somewhat qualified to assess different personality types simply by observation. The youth pastor in the loud plaid shirt, running around and waving his arms with a guitar strapped on his back? Extrovert. The twentysomething pouring coffee at the welcome center and chatting it up with visitors? Extrovert. The teenager in the corner alone by the snack table? Introvert.

Their planned Super Bowl ad was called "Journey Home," and featured a lost puppy making his way back to his owners, only to be met with the news that he has been sold (on a site his owners made on GoDaddy, of course.) The ad raises more questions than answers. Like, why did his owners use GoDaddy when they could have just posted on Craigslist? And, how are they getting wifi out in that barn? And, did anyone in the marketing…

    It feels like a long time coming, but singer-songwriter Tony Lucca has finally released his self-titled eighth studio album. You can listen to the album streaming in its entirety via Yahoo! Music.  For this release, Lucca embraced his new Nashville roots and has put forth a more southern-tinged, classic-rock album. Yes, he’s plugged in and amped up, leaving behind his trademark melancholy acoustic sound (for now) in favor of sheer power and raw emotion. And it sounds real good thumping through your speakers. Lucca said of the album, “We went in with the intention of making a record…

    The infamous BSTN Soundsystem consisting of DJ Hotsauce, DJ Dime, DJ Kitsune, DJ A-Les & DJ Dumbo Beats returns with another banging mix. To go along with Beastin’s current quickstrike “needs Beastin” collection we came up with the idea of finally knocking out our hop hop classics mix as a “classics need Beastin” theme. Each DJ chose a era or clique he would want to work with and then compiled everything into a 12 minute mix. At the end we came up with a 60 minute mix including classics from Bad Boy, Roc-a-fella, Ruff Ryders, DipSet and of course the ATL.

Forgive the style, I was in a Chomsky mood at the time. There's a post that accomponies this that has some quick thoughts on geek culture in general - I'll post that soon. When "the Internet" gets acknowledged in many traditional news outlets (think CNN, and Fox News) you can feel a sense of "today on the Internet" which you could translate somewhat roughly to "hey, look at the quirky stuff that came out of that good ol'…
  • A Study in Ghost Themes (part 1)

    Simon
    12 Jan 2015 | 12:20 am
    After looking at Ghost's finance report for the past year, I thought it might be cool to look at the market which has sprung up around Ghost, and whether it makes sense to repackage some of our own themes to put on their market. Ghost itself doesn't have a real marketplace yet, so - dutifully - a couple of substitutes have popped up. Marketplaces Ghost Marketplace - Links to where the theme is sold. Can these themes be automatically uploaded to an existing Ghost blog? This isn't really clear. Envato - Envato has been around for a long time, and it looks like it's the go to place to sell your…

    Ray Kurzweil is a smart person who's clearly led his chosen field - and, by extension, human-artificial intelligence - into a new era. In his most recent book How To Create a Mind, he talks extensively about the evolution of Intelligence, with some flowery words convinces the reader that AI is possible, likely, desirable, and a natural progression of evolution. But not once does he broach the cultural or societal consequences of creating enhanced human intelligence. From a philosophical perspective I've pretty much always felt the way he does about free will, identity, consciousness. I'm a…

  • Butterick's Qualities of Open Source

    Simon
    9 Jan 2015 | 1:15 am
    Matthew Butterick's essay on Seven Qualities of Open Source Software made me ask some questions. Open source, as a software-development process, allows competing products to emerge without the capital and labor demands of traditional proprietary software development. This strikes me as a fairly classic misunderstanding of where the money comes from, and an assumption of simplistic cause and effect. Proprietary software X fullfills task A, so open source software Y sprung up to do the same task only... free. For starters - supposedly Wikipedia is an open source alternative to proprietary…

  • Charli XCX Has Released Japanese Versions of ‘Boom Clap’ and ‘Break the Rules’

    Shane Barnes
    28 Jan 2015 | 11:11 am
    Charli XCX’s excellent 2014 album Sucker has been pretty well loved in America for the past two months, but it hasn’t been released in other parts of the world. She’s making the best of that delay, it seems, as snippets of Japanese-language versions of two of her biggest songs, “Boom Clap” and “Break the Rules” have surfaced. Have a listen below. It’s a little magical how the songs are transformed by changing the language of the lyrics, their new incomprehensibility (for non-Japanese speakers) allowing the song to somehow be more enjoyable.

    Sweden-based musician Rebekka Karijord didn’t see her father, who struggled with addiction, for most of her childhood in northern Norway. In her early teen years, she found a notebook of her father’s poems, lyrics, and sketches — most of which were about her and her mother — in the attic. She eventually travelled to Norway’s west coast to reunite with him, at which point he gave her two big plastic bags filled with his own lyrics. She used his words to find her own voice — an experience that comes full circle on her fourth album, We Become Ourselves, a stunning…

    Millennials everywhere are in mourning, bless them, because Blink-182 have officially parted way with singer Tom DeLonge (although apparently that’s news to him). The band have been famously dysfunctional for years, and as such it’s not surprising that the communication around their apparent break-up has been lacking. Perhaps the most notable detail to emerge was that Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker haven’t spoken to DeLonge in months, preferring to communicate digitally. Their medium of choice was email, but really, it could and should have been Gchat — because then we…

A few years ago a friend of mine turned me on to the band Dengue Fever.

Their version was released in 2009 and totally updates the original bringing the song into the 21st century with a sassy, electric, rock n roll edge it truly deserves.

Mixi prefers to be fronting a band and only did a single and video for Geffen. If you haven’t heard Mixi and her band which is comprised of James Decker on drums, Meritt Goodwin on bass, Luke Man on guitar (and are currently in discussion about adding a second guitarist) they are far from the pop princess that Geffen wanted her to be.

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:34 am
    The 2nd single off of Modest Mouse's forthcoming album Strangers to Ourselves is "Coyotes".To sum up my thoughts, eff yes.This is the sparseness of Long Drive with the polish of Moon & Antarctica. I've always loved Modest Mouse, ever since my friend Linnea was in art school and I asked her who I should listen to, and she said, "I heard Modest Mouse is pretty cool."I picked up This is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About shortly thereafter.If you have thoughts about the song or video's meaning, I'd love to hear it.

    There is a tension in the modern dance accompanied with this performance that incredibly moved me. The song talks about an inner struggle to make/be something, and after ruminating for the day, I'm still not sure how it resolves. It's times like this where I try to remember Louis CK's interview with Conan O'Brien, and not distract myself. Just let life consume me for a minute. Thank you, Sia.

  • Single Serving: Faith Healer – Again

    Matthew Hickey
    27 Jan 2015 | 10:00 am
    This is the one you’re looking for. It’s the first single from Edmonton, Alberta’s Faith Healer (the latest project of duo Jessica Jalbert and Renny Wilson) and it’s very rad. Bright, warm and melodic, it’s built from a swaying melody, infectious harmonies, loose California-style guitar riffs, and softly crooned lyrics that are both clever and easy to relate to, “It’s a pain to stretch yourself out after being through the wash / but being run through often makes the fibers soft.” It’s pulled from her upcoming debut release Cosmic Troubles,…

    26 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    I just can’t get enough of Australia’s Winterbourne. Their thought provoking tune, “Cold,” has been resonating throughout the hollow walls of my home for the last few days. Despite being just a few years out of high school, vocalist James Draper’s voice sounds as if it is filled with age and wisdom. There can’t be that many miles on the soles of of this duo’s chucks, but their writing reflects that of a gray haired sage. I have found myself more than once, left idle from puttering around the house, ears focused on this track. If you head on over to…

    The new yearly tradition seems to be bringing the majority of Coachella billed acts into the Los Angeles are for their own headlining shows. This gives those that didn’t score a ticket to the sold out festival a chance to pick and choose who they want to see perform around town, and avoid paying scalpers some humongous amount of cash for a 3-day pass. The list is massive and includes shows by Drive Like Jehu, Ride, Interpol, Tame impala, belle & Sebastian, Jenny Lewis, Toro y Moi, Father John Misty, FKA Twigs, RAC, Swans, Cashmere Cat, Vance Joy, Madeon and more.  We listed all of…

First Swans will stop by the El Rey Theatre on Tuesday, April 14th with Angel Olsen who is also on the festival bill. Then the band will head down south for another show on Thursday, April 16th at the Observatory in Santa Ana. We know Swans is on a bunch of festival must-see lists and now those anti-festival folks will get a shot to see them live.

    Straight No Chaser Is A Legitimate Act That Performs Novelty Music If you want to make it big in the music business here’s all you have to do… First, learn how to make great music.  It’s preferable if you can sing. Second, you’ll need to adopt a charismatic stage persona and be easy going on the eyes.  For some, that’s easier said than done. Next, pick a marginalized genre of music to perform like bluegrass, Dixieland, Afro-Beat, or Portuguese fado.

    Question: Hi Neal, Is there always some discomfort in your bottom lip from your teeth digging in, I am finding after practicing for 40 – 60mins my bottom lip is pretty tender. -Brett Neal: That depends on how exactly you’re playing. I think I used to have more discomfort in my bottom lip from the same thing happening. But some time back, I began to somewhat stick my bottom lip farther forward. Sounds like you’re also applying more pressure than is needed. So try curling your bottom lip a little less and using a bit less pressure. It will feel different at first, but probably…

    Question: I play a cannonball alto sax and like most or all saxophones, on the top of the body of the sax there are two screws that you are supposed to tighten up in order for the neck piece not to move. One of the screws on my sax broke and my neck piece moves around but I can still play normally like I used to. It’s as if no screws are tightening the neck piece. My question is will this affect my sound? -Miguel Neal: Short answer: yes. Longer answer has to do with understanding what both of those screws does. One of those screws tightens the connection with the neck. The other does…

    Question: I’m a new sax player and my teacher recommends I play the mouthpiece and head for two weeks. Is that necessary to start playing? -Tobi Neal: Not completely necessary, but it can help. That would make you focus on one thing, which is trying to get a better tone and playing around with control. That is something you really should do, but it becomes easy to shift your attention to your fingers once you have the whole saxophone and then the tone may get overlooked for a while. Once your fingers are involved, they are directly linked to your sound. So how you move your fingers can…

    Question: How long will it take me to play all sax scales? (Currently can play “nil” major scales) A few other people have said they know zero of the major scales. Response: How long it will take you to learn the scales on saxophone depends on many things. They include whether you have played instruments before, how much you practice, whether you have a teacher, etc. But probably the best way is to learn one scale and then see how it goes and how long it takes. I would say half the scales will take approximately as long as it takes to learn the first scale. The other half will…

    Rihanna is finally back in action, and you may be surprised by the direction she appears to be going in – we’re calling her new single, ‘FourFiveSeconds‘, ‘drunken campfire realness’. Her vocals are, um, somewhat exposed over a simple acoustic riff from Paul McCartney, while Kanye West adds a rap that glaringly includes the word ‘spaz’ right in the middle of it. Nice work, Kanye. Quite honestly we’re hoping this was just whipped together for a rumoured 3-way GRAMMY performance that can be swiftly forgotten about until a ‘real’…

    Hugh Scott
    1 Jan 2015 | 9:50 am
    In late October, St. Louis experimental pop band Demonlover released their second full-length album, a mystical, quasi-narrative epic entitled Moody Future. On record, the songs veer from Danny Elfman arrangements to Brill Building love stories, passing through early hip hop, French yé-yé, Jamaican dub, punk rock and electronic noise along the way. The effect is akin to discovering a great cosmic radio and scanning the dials, encountering one brilliant fragment of musical history after another.  by K.E.

    by K.E. Luther It’s amazing how much the world can change in a year. Over the course of a few months, children become adults. Communities split apart, exposing the fault lines of history. And nations learn humility, as war and disease spread across the globe. No one captures this reality better than Malcolm Chandler, better known as Con. Earlier this year, Chandler released his first solo album, Solstice Part One (Advice from a Fortune Cookie), as an experiment in finding his own voice. In September, he dropped Solstice Part Two (Dreams from a Snow Globe) and established himself as one of…

Bo and Mort Richard — no relation — made their debut on this summer’s Meat Bundle compilation with a set of three obscenely catchy songs about heartbreak, lust, and the desire to be degraded.

    One of the reasons OffBeat was created was to create a way for musicians to feel good about themselves. Now, as a whole, musicians who work hard at their art and skills are confident and feel good about their ability to make music. Where most of them are deficient is in the arena of making enough money to live a decent life, to support a family, and to retire without having to become a pauper living on the streets. But they certainly don’t feel appreciated. And they really don’t feel appreciated outside their peer and fan groups. For the most part, they feel exploited. If I told you how…

    Derry/Londonderry singer-songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson first hit our radar last year with an incredibly promising debut EP, Blud, released on an imprint from the band Chvrches. Now she has a full-length on the way, due via Rough Trade later this year. “Sea Creatures” — the new LP preview — is a cut that arrived in solo-acoustic form last year, but now it’s even more affecting as a midtempo swoon, a beautiful piece of gloaming akin to some of her neighbors to the north.

Jalbert goes by Faith Healer these days, teaming up once again with René Wilson for a 12-track set titled Cosmic Troubles, due via Mint Records in March. There’s a colorful collage of nods to the ’60s infused here (sunny harmonies, handclaps, indelible melody, et al.), but — as with her previous work — something completely present persists, too. Among Jalbert’s many talents, the interwoven electric guitar…

It’s an optimistic tune set over that ever-moving “Be My Baby” intro beat, with a message for the zeitgeist I’m hearing a lot lately: “Take your time, build a…

Of course movies and TV shows have been around for decades, however since the dawn of the Internet the number and type of productions has skyrocketed due to the proliferation of digital platforms and the insatiable…

So to stay sane, I dip into my collection of Christmas songs that few people know about, but are certainly worthy of being played alongside their more celebrated brethren.

    Cinematic Soundscape 2 (MX306) and Cinematic Soundscape 3 (MX307) offer a variety of swells, risers and grooves, stutters, hits and drones that will enhance your trailer or promo—or just bring the drama to your next project. Executive producer (and contributing composer) JC Dwyer is excited about the new categories and composers featured on these releases—the cinematic post rock, hybrid backends and, perhaps especially, the contributions made by composers Mike Fonte and Ian Nickus (pictured above). Mike Fonte is an LA based guitarist, composer, and sound design artist. He has written…

  • Cock & Swan Drop New Single “PERG” off Upcoming EP ‘What Was Life?’

    Andy Fenstermaker
    7 Jan 2015 | 7:10 pm
    Cock & Swan return with a new album in 2015 called What Was Life? Johnny Goss and Ola Hungerford’s latest effort continues what the duo, now married, did with 2013’s Secret Angels. Ola’s vocals continue to grow in strength and confidence, despite their minimalist and aural nature on “PERG”, the first song to surface from the new 3-song EP. And Johnny’s electronic loops are darker and more subtle than ever. They debuted “PERG” on Impose earlier this week. I’ve been following Cock & Swan since 2006 — that’s the better…

On the new EP, Krgovich delves into the…
  • Dream Police to release “Hypnotized” Nov. 11 on Sacred Bones

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

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

    Andy Fenstermaker
    31 Jul 2014 | 7:00 pm
    I have loved Darlings since they released their debut LP, Yeah I Know, back in 2009. Their subsequent EP and singles were equally pleasing to my ears. Then, in 2012, they released their sophomore LP, Perfect Trip, which easily trumped their prior releases. Now we have the first tease of what’s to come. It’s a song called “Centuries of Light” and it’ll be off the band’s third LP, which is called… well, we don’t even know what it’ll be called yet because the band hasn’t decided. I dig the sound. With each new release, Darlings stray a…

    This Atlantic article examines the Shazam Effect, the music discovery app that collects data on what songs people want to identify. The data Shazam has amassed provides insight for music industry insiders to artists on the rise. To quote the article: By studying 20 million searches every day, Shazam can identify which songs are catching on, and where, before just about anybody else. “Sometimes we can see when a song is going to break out months before most people have even heard of it,” Jason Titus, Shazam’s former chief technologist, told me.

    Nearly 80% of respondents who used both Spotify and Pandora said they were replacing time on Pandora with Spotify, and further results did find that average weekly time spent listening to Pandora had fallen. For example, US internet users were most likely to listen to Pandora for less than 1 hour a week, cited by 47% of respondents in November 2014, vs. 39% in December 2013.

    Consumers are dancing to the beat of Pandora. In an RBC Capital Markets study conducted in November 2014, 51% of US internet users reported listening to music via Pandora—nearly double those who did so in December 2013. This put the music streaming platform in the top spot as it surpassed more traditional FM/AM radio as well as CDs. Usage of almost all other platforms flatlined or declined between December 2013 and November 2014. CDs saw the biggest drop in respondents, falling nearly 20 percentage points from 36% to 17%.

The gothic folk-blues track is about the pain of watching a loved one slip into darkness and being left behind, and “time to move on”. ‘Send Me Home’ is from the album ‘Big Dark Love’, which is due for release on Bloodshot Records next month. Murder By Death – Send Me Home was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

    14 Jan 2015 | 12:19 pm
    by Dan Lehner and FoM John Rogers/NPR   (See our Friday recap here.)   It's a rare treat for jazz audiences to be able to hear a large work performed in its entirety, especially when the music on drummer Dan Weiss's "Fourteen" is a Herculean task to perform just on record.

Weiss's music is an amalgam of his…

    28 Jan 2015 | 10:15 am

However, he finally got some good news as a Los Angeles court ruled in his favor in a suit that claimed his own company and partners cheated him out of royalties, awarding him $5 million.The lawsuit in question dates back to the late 80s, when Stone’s ex-manager Gerald Goldstein and attorney Glenn Stone convinced the…

    The latest track from the film adaptation of the mommy porn that swept the globe, “50 Shades of Grey,” is a viscerally-titled tune from Sia, “Salted Wound.”Like many of the tracks on last year’s excellent “1,000 Forms of Fear,” it’s a lushly-produced saga with a flair for the dramatic. This one is laden with strings that make it sound appropriately cinematic.Seems like Sia has variations on a theme going recently—her last video with Shia LaBoeuf prancing around shirtless in “Elastic Heart” was a bit on the “50 Shades”…

    Top 110 Songs Of The 1960s  -  101 - 110Today we give you something new - a list of the top 110 songs of the 1960s.  To compile this list I followed a few rules - first, the list had to represent the entire decade, both in terms of year and genres.  Much as I might like one year or style over the next, all had to be represented.  Second, the songs had to be well-known.  I'll run a second list of the top 100 obscure songs of the Sixties later to satisfy my critics' jones.  And third, I tried to represent as many artists as possible.  Again, the goal was…
  • Song of the Day

    12 Jan 2015 | 9:43 pm
    Shangri-Las -  Give Him A Great Big KissToday's Song of the Day is from those lovely ladies from Queens, the Shangri-Las - Give Him A Great Big Kiss.  A classic 60's Girl Group song, they were ably supported by Shadow Morton, who lead them to a number one hit with Leader of the Pack - the 'live' video for that, featuring Robert Goulet as the motorcyclist is priceless.  This song was later covered by Johnny Thunders, among others.

    Earwax, Brooklyn, New YorkOpenNext up on my Brooklyn record store day is Earwax.  A long time denizen of Williamsburg, this small(ish) shop was here long before the hipsters who now come to buy its records.   They were playing a cool Isley Brothers record I hadn't heard before (no, not Shout), 1971's Givin It Back, with the Isley's take on a number of songs by Bob Dylan, Stephen Stills, Neil Young and Jimi Hendrix among others.  Got a cheap copy of a Black Uhuru record I was always looking for, Red.
  • Song of the Day

    9 Jan 2015 | 4:25 pm
    Dave Matthews Band - Two StepToday's Song of the Day is Two Step by the Dave Matthews Band.  A jam band in the tradition of the Grateful Dead and Phish, this is one of my personal favorites, with a great jamming intro.  From 1997's Crash, its a mixture of folk, world beat, and jazz rolled up in one stew.

  • A Look Again at Ukulele Tuner Devices

    Barry Maz
    26 Jan 2015 | 3:17 am
    Things move on in the ukulele world, and as much as people moved on from using tuning forks and pitch pipes to clip on tuners, that world moves on too. I thought it was therefore high time I took another look at ukulele tuning devices and let you know some of the kit I am now using. A combo review if you will.But before we kick off, I did not intend that to sound like a slur on the use of a tuning fork. I ALWAYS carry one in my gig bag and know how to tune the uke to itself. In fact I would say they are a must have piece of kit for the money. Frankly you never know when batteries will die and…

    Ah, electrifying a ukulele. A massive subject in itself and something I still see a great many discussions on. My readers will know that my preference is for a passive system, amplifying the signal 'off' the ukulele rather than the glut of onboard systems that are out there cut into the sides of poor instruments. So as well as this being a review of a pre amp box I have used for a good year or two now, I intend to also expand on my thoughts on the subject generally.

    Ukulele cases. Often something that players will skimp on, but something I always recommend. Sure, if your uke cost you $30 you may feel happy with a cloth gig bag, but I look at it this way. If the uke is something that would hurt you in the pocket if you damaged it, then GET A CASE! Thinking of cases reminded me of one I had bought, intended to review, but never got around to it. The TGI Brand ABS case.I've got a whole range of cases and many ukuleles exist quite happily in the zippered pod cases that have become so popular. They are fine, but I don't find the zips last. Still, they still…

It is of no surprise when Bossa Nova lovers express their anxiety for the music of the Perth, Australia based artist. Juliana is extremely talented and experienced. Her music is well appreciated for being described as truly authentic, passionate and very relaxing.

Plus, he also had that excellent track titled Too Much, featuring Camille Corazóna couple of months ago. You can listen to that one HERE. I can’t complain that he’s coming back with some new sounds so soon. It’s always good to hear BAILE’s hazy atmosphere.

  • Revival or Revolution? – Shoegaze on the Uprise

    Matt
    21 Jan 2015 | 7:07 pm
    It may not be common knowledge to many that the shoegaze scene (as we can call it in its own right) was actually pretty short-lived in commercial terms, especially compared to the ravenous seizure of mass consciousness that Brit Pop or Grunge enjoyed. So it is somewhat of a curious phenomenon that “the scene that celebrates itself” has seen such a resurgence in recent years. Since the heyday of the shoegaze era in the early 1990s, fueled by such labels as Creation Records and 4AD (crowned by proto-shoegaze groups such as Cocteau Twins) until just recently, it seems there was no dynamic…

I probably would have completely skipped this if I didn’t love Party All The Time so much. With that said, this song is a pleasant surprise. If you’re skeptical, I don’t blame you, but just kick back and throw this song on and forget about the long string of disappointing Eddie Murphy films over the past decade.

Jamies’ vocals are used like an instrument, blending in amongst the deep layers of fast paced, electro funk sounds. Really, I can barely make out the lyrics, but it works. This track is a bold, mish-mash of genres and I’m loving every bit of it. Someone on Jamies’ Soundcloud commented “Release a damn mixtape!” I completely agree. Let’s get a full project!

While listening through my ear buds a friend asked what music was playing. I just took off one of the buds and allowed him to hear. After a few minutes of listening he handed me back the ear bud and said, “It sounds like something someone recorded in their basement.” Of course, that statement was derogatory in nature, but without taking offense, I found it interesting.

It's really a dual course 8 string bass so it gives you a 12 string guitar quality. I don't know how effective it will be for laying down a traditional bass line, but it's cool for soloing and playing chords.Ampeg showed something I thought they should have come out with years ago - a bass…

    NAMM AttendeeThe latest Winter NAMM show, the semi-annual exhibition of musical instrument manufacturers occurring each January in Anaheim, has ended, and more so than most, this one reflects what’s happening in the music creation business and even the world we live in. NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) is unlike any convention anywhere, from the hustle and bustle of a Black Friday at the local mall, to the cacophony of simultaneous sounds from every kind of musical instrument imaginable, to a bevy of both legit and wanna be rockers bumping into you at every…

    Another Winter NAMM is over and I'm here to report the trends and products that caught my attention over the 4 day show. This year's exhibition was sleepy as far as new products were concerned, but there sure was a lot of enthusiasm.As has become the norm at not only NAMM but trade shows in general, there wasn't much that could be considered groundbreaking, but there were a lot of evolutionary products. I'm going to get to things like the latest Pro Tools 12 and PT First release tomorrow, but today we'll touch on the audio products that caught my eye. These may or may not be products…

    I've very pleased to have engineer/producer Ross Hogarth on this week's Inner Circle podcast. Ross started in the business as a stage tech and live mixer for the likes of David Lindley, Jackson Browne and Fleetwood Mac, and eventually moved into the studio where he’s since worked with the likes of Roger Waters, Motley Crue, Van Halen, John Mellencamp and many more.Ross has also just been nominated for Best Engineered Record Grammy for his recent work with Keb Mo.On the intro I'll also talk about why an attorney might not to want to shop your demo, and the little Amish town that's the center…
  • The Beatles "I Feel Fine" Isolated Guitars

    Bobby Owsinski
    22 Jan 2015 | 9:30 pm
    It's always fun to listen to hits of years past and dissect the parts, and today's song is no exception. It's "I Feel Fine" by The Beatles, a big hit for them from way back in 1964. This might have been the first example of feedback electric guitar (John Lennon's amplified Gibson acoustic J-160E) on record, but it was discovered accidentally when Lennon leaned his guitar up against the amp after a take. The band loved it and later edited it in to the beginning of the song.John, who wrote and sang the song, claimed that the riff was based around a Bobby Parker song the band used to play live…

  • Roger Nichols and the Small Circle of Friends--Snow Queen (1967)

    Cas Countz
    24 Jan 2015 | 8:49 am
         Roger Nichols, Muccay MacLeod and his sister Melinda MacLeod comprised the group, "The Small Circle of Friends". Signed to A&M records, Nichols composed several songs with Tony Asher, fresh off of his working with Brian Wilson on the album, "Pet Sounds". Looking back, the songwriting lineup was impressive with songs by Van Dyke Parks, Lenny Waronker, and Randy Newman. One of the shining songs on an album of strong ones was "Snow Queen" written by Jerry Goffin and Carole King.     Over 45 years after it's release the sounds so familiar even…

    16 Nov 2014 | 3:15 pm
         It seems as if every 10 years or so a new generation discovers ABBA. They were one of the best selling groups in the world in the 70's, although revisionist historians would suggest they were much bigger in the states than they really were (They only had four top 10 hits here, one of those climbing to the top). The first wave of nostalgia towards the group occurred shortly after their last album in the early 80's. The latest one, which corresponded with the stage production and movie "Mamma Mia", continues the trend that has allowed the group steady sales although…

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

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

  • Passenger Peru- The Best Way To Drown

    27 Jan 2015 | 8:27 am
    NYC-based duo Passenger Peru are preparing their sophomore album, Light Places, the sequel to their acclaimed self-titled debut.Much like its predecessor, Light Places showcases Justin Stivers and Justin Gonzales' keen melodic sense and their ability to shape-shift moods at the drop of a hat with expert control of their instruments; however, this time around, the duo focuses on producing more simplistic and raw music to match the exposed and visceral lyrics.  It's a deeply personal, raw, and unapologetic album recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered DIY by the band in various locations…
  • RA- These Days

    26 Jan 2015 | 8:00 am
    Malmö, Sweden-based post-punk band RA are preparing their debut LP, Scandinavia, available March 3rd on Adrian Recordings. The first taste is the steel cold "These Days," a barrage of razor sharp guitar noise, foreboding rhythms, and manic vocals from lead singer Simon Minó. It's harsh on the ears but the wincing is pleasure-based. RA conjure beautiful cacophony that that's heads above a lot of popular post-punk released in the past few years. 
  • Moon- One Thousand Natural Shocks + Meridian

    23 Jan 2015 | 9:23 am
    Moon, a Halifax-birthed five-piece art-rock outfit, might have slipped under your radar because they committed the "faux pas" of releasing their album two days before Christmas, but their self-titled is worth your attention. Combining odd speak-sung vocals, schizoid keys, and brilliantly placed flute trills of flautist Jamie Forsythe aka Flute Skywalker, Moon create a galaxy of complex noise against slow, steady beats and unpredictable melodies. Krautrock meets post-punk meets virulent indie-pop.Out now
  • Calypso- Isn't Now

    23 Jan 2015 | 9:00 am
    Calypso is an Asheville, North Carolina trio who caught my ear with their prickly psych-punk single, Isn't Now, from their upcoming Oracle EP set to release January 27th via French label Atelier Ciseaux on cassette. Samantha Richman's blurry vocals swirl nicely under fuzzy strums and snappy drums giving off an ethereal flower child aura before it's interrupted by stabs of bendy post-punk guitars. 
  • Rye Pines- Atlantic Ascent

    23 Jan 2015 | 7:30 am
    Atlantic Ascent is the short but sweet introduction to Rye Pines' forthcoming album, Dead Ocean, due out February 17th on Bob Records. This literal and musical liftoff paints a vivid picture of the bitter cold North East coast with its grey gulls, frozen beach, and bitter breeze while a man contemplates disappearing into the vastness of the great grey Atlantic. Edward Maguire's biting vocals will redden your ears like quick swirls of ocean wind and are a perfect compliment to Rye Pines' emotive poetry. Pre-Order the cassette here (4 different variants)

I touched on this last year, but I think this is because I know which photos took the most skill, which were the most opportune and– on the flip side– which did not turn out the way I wanted them to. 2014’s best shots were largely selected by fans of the Snapshots and Needle Drops facebook page.

I’m still on my first run-though, but this album is so classic Damien it’s hard to believe he’s been radio silent for this long. In expected form, the majority of the songs are slow, quiet and introspective– but with 30 seconds to spare he usually builds up to a screeching, voice-cracking desperation. The average length of a track is 6:20 minutes,…

      Two weeks ago I was invited on an after-hours tour of Canada’s Library of Parliament in Ottawa, Ontario. Built between 1859 and 1876, the Library is the only original remaining part of the Centre Block of Parliament – the rest burned down in a fire in 1916. The Library was saved thanks to a fast-thinking clerk and a pair of steel doors. I only visited the Library of Parliament once before, on a Girl Guide field trip to Ottawa when I was 10 years old. I was awed by its Victorian High Gothic beauty; it reminded me of the Beast’s library in Disney’s 1991 animated film Beauty and…

    Our default theme this year, Twenty Fifteen, draws visitors’ eyes to what matters most — the text and images you publish on your site. Crisp typography, generous spacing, streamlined navigation: Twenty Fifteen shows that less can indeed be more (and that it can look great on any device). Keeping things simple and streamlined doesn’t mean you can’t make a theme your own, of course. From free custom color schemes (pictured in the gallery above) to a vertical header area with ample space to channel your (and your site’s) personality, Twenty Fifteen is a…

    From a musical perspective the start to 2015 has been a glorious one. At ‘GIGsoup’ we’ve been handing out 3* and above awards, for album reviews, on an almost daily basis and that’s not about to change today. Sit back, relax and prepare yourself for a quite incredible release from ex-Supergrass front-man Gaz Coombs with his new LP ‘Matador’. Coombes second solo LP is a “musical-melody-masterclass” (an observation on the structure of the music on show and not a new genre I’ve just created). It delivers impressive content throughout and importantly contains an element of…

    The great skua (Stercorarius skua) is a large seabird, it is sometimes known by the name bonxie. The flight is direct and powerful. Due to its size, aggressive nature and fierce defence of its nest, the great skua has little to fear from other predators. Bonxies are at the top of the food chain. They are certainly a powerful, intimidating and ruthless predator. The adjectives used to describe the bonxie are probably not those you would normally associate with Stornoway, who will be releasing their third long player, named after this Hebridean seabird on 13th April 2015 through Cooking Vinyl.

All the bro country out there is my jam.But for the past few weeks, I've been troubled by Luke Bryan's latest single, "I See You." The chorus feels way too similar to another song of his, but I've spent the last three weeks thinking about it, and I can't figure out what song that is. I've essentially listened to Luke's entire discography, and the closest I can come to a decision is "That's My Kind…

    It’s often hard not to question why such good people are allowed to pass away at such a young age. I’ve struggled with and at times avoided the way such situations make me feel.

  • PR Skills: How to Write a Musician Biography

    Katie Reilly
    5 Jan 2015 | 9:00 am
    One of the key things you need to promote a musician is a biography. So, it's an important skill whether you intend to be in a band or work with one behind the scenes. A one page biography fills the role a cover letter might in a more traditional career and quickly provides context and information about a musician's sound, career, influences, and accomplishments. Talent buyers, radio station music directors, and everyone in between will use it to quickly understand who the artist is, so it needs to convey a clear, concise, and impressive message.CC by 2.0 peteoshea on FlickrSo how do you…

    Steven Fies
    13 Jan 2015 | 10:30 pm
    As audio engineers, we all know how frustrating it can be to listen to a recorded instrument and know something isn't quite right with the EQ.  This gets progressively more annoying if we cannot quickly identify exactly what's going wrong and fix it!  To make matters more complicated, we have it ingrained in our souls that we should only apply EQ in the "context of the mix," with everything else playing at full volume.  While this is generally true, sonic information from the rest of the mix can make it tricky for us to hone in on what's happening with a particular instrument's…

  • Dead Sara at The Merrow

    21 Dec 2014 | 9:30 am
    On November 22, it was rock night at The Merrow, featuring San Diego locals The Dexter Riley Xperiment, Sensory Station, and Dead Sara from Los Angeles; they’re the only band I was familiar with before entering the venue. The Merrow features a fairly large stage and dance floor, along with pool tables and a small seating area for people to enjoy the shows. The main bar area is a smaller room at the main entrance, which can be cordoned off from the stage room by large black curtains. It’s a nice venue, decorated in a nautical theme (“Merrow” is the Gaelic term for merman/mermaid…

    6 Dec 2014 | 1:00 pm
    For the second night my musical escapades a few weeks back, I attended the Til-Two Club in San Diego. This local dive bar appears to have a good deal of history behind it, as its walls are decorated with posters of previous shows featuring artists I’d never heard of, the designs for most of which suggest that this place has been open for a few decades. This notion is supported by the fact that the interior dance room still has a disco ball, mirrored ceiling panels, and DJ turntables on the dance floor. This is not where the night’s bands performed. The Til-Two Club has built a small stage…

There's nothing quite like being out on a Friday or Saturday night with your friends and getting lost in the mix late at night.

Some songs in particular really inspire me to get on my feet.Chicago-based EDM Producer BOMBS DROPPING is one of those who has truly outdone himself with…

  • Music Sales vs. Streaming – Analysis by Bob Lefsetz

    dangellert
    26 Jan 2015 | 8:26 pm
    Bob Lefsetz recently did a short analysis on music sales vs. streams – specifically Spotify streams. Lefsetz’s signature is bold, loud and typically gets to the essence of a topic. His Sales vs. Spotify post is no exception. It is worth reading in its entirety, but here are a few of his proclamations:  Streams trump sales. But streams pay less than sales. But streaming only pays…when a track is streamed! And, streaming is a worldwide phenomenon. Data goes both ways. When you put out an album, see what the people are streaming, those are the hits. Focus on listens.

With Spotify recently announcing they are up to 15 million paying subscribers (60 million total users), and Deezer appearing to have a specific plan they are pursuing (previously announcing their U.S. Elite tier and now purchasing Muve Music to gain a foothold in the U.S. market), it is prime time for Beats Music to announce its next phase.

  • Will Streaming Music Enable Record Companies To Break Even?

    dangellert
    8 Jan 2015 | 8:37 pm
    2014 statistics for the music business are unsurprising – album sales sunk 11 percent to 257 million units, track sales dropped 12.5 percent to 1.1 billion… On-demand streaming went up 54 percent to 164 billion songs. Billboard offers an alternate interpretation of the continued discrepancy, “That [streaming] increase of 57.5 billion tracks is equivalent to an increase in album sales of 56.1 million units — a number that exceeds the decline in track-equivalent albums (or TEA, a combination of album and track sales) of 47.9 million units.” Will this translate to…

    Admittedly emboldened by painkillers, U2’s lead singer Bono, has written a massive ‘A to Z’ missive about 2014. A few noteworthy insights … Bono says that the reason he respects music streaming services “is that they are slowly turning people who are used to getting their music for-FREE, into paying ten dollars a month for a subscription model.” This fact is often under-publicized by the media and over-looked by artists and music companies when asked about music streaming. Considering the often cited low payouts by streaming services, Bono points out that…

Any of the three songs from that EP would sit very comfortably on this album and would probably be stand out tracks but this album demonstrates that there’s plenty more to come.

Even though she basically knows everything about what it means to be a good and successful person, she continues to strive to learn and grow.

  • Listen: “A Question” by Bombadil

    Her Life is Her Canvas
    19 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    “A Question” by BombadilIn my humble opinion, there is nothing cuter than a little ukulele strum.In “A Question” by Bombadil, the uke is the perfect, lighthearted backdrop to the jolting, awkward vocals. And who knew a ukulele and electric guitar could be played in tandem so seamlessly? I find the whole shebang very intriguing. Put yourself in the musician’s shoes. Bombadil was like, “Okay. Let’s make an album. There will be eleven songs on it. What do we want to say?” And then they wrote this song.I love when artists who think outside the box and don’t…

I was alerted by an unsigned rap artist inquiring if I knew the right-hand man of one of the most well-known rappers in the game today.

If this song and video are anything to go by, the whole project will sound like a time capsule of pure 60/70’s lo-fi goodness. On Ray Gun, they’ve employed the mesmerising talents of Ghostface’s old mate, DOOM. The retro video features Odd Future’s Left Brain as The Mask, with his real life girlfriend appearing at the end as The Goddess.Pre-order the album here: http://soursoul.lexrecords.com/

Listening to B4.DA.$$ makes you pretty insecure, pretty gutted that you're not 20 years old with a wealth of knowledge, wisdom and an ear for the traditional hip hop sound that has captured the hearts and souls of many people around the world. Some celebrate Joey because he's bringing the 90's sound back, but for me that's definitely not the case. First of all the overall sound of B4.DA.$$ is just a nice hip hop sound, but secondly and more importantly it's equal parts forward thinking as it is…

  • PANTHAR – Ghost Rocket via New Professor Music

    Last time I heard goth punk music with a early 80’s influence? Hmm… that’s a toughie, I would have to say, never. Sure enough, as soon as I listened to the track I heard the 80’s style come bursting out through the synth pop they have tied to the vocal melody. The lead singer in the band was actually raised in Kyoto, Japan and moved to Canada in her teenage years and as all teenagers do had her musical taste rocked (literally) by styles like grunge, punk rock, and goth like streams. PANTHAR, as they call themselves will be releasing “Ghost Rocket” February…

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

    Despite the undeniable popularity of Internet streaming service, Spotify, the Swedish industry giant has recently announced that they might soon be putting time-limits for streaming new content on free users. The new move will most likely come into effect in early 2015, following ongoing negotiations between Spotify and Rights-Holders. ‘The Hits Daily Double’ reports that current deals with UMG and Sony are set to expire in 2015 and this could be a push from Spotify to ensure the acquisition of new agreements with the labels. Spotify has recently been thrust into the public eye due to…

    We would like to highlight two different platforms for accessing music, their increase in popularity and importance within the music industry. The LP (Long Play) vinyl record, introduced back in 1948 by Columbia records, is now seen as a collectors item and evokes a sense of nostalgia in modern day consumers. October 2013 saw the BPI  (British Phonographic Industry) tell us how LP sales had reached a peak in popularity over more than a decade. Furthermore, the report demonstrated that it was the older consumer that was dominating the market with 35-44 year old’s being the largest…

    João Ruas, São Paulo Brazil 1981, is another artist that really caught my eye; he has a similar illustration style than Chiara Bautista, however, his illustrations are rawer, darker with a sad, depressing perspective -at least from my standpoint- and way more detailed.

    I had and interesting discussion with a friend of mines about being born in sin & bondage vs. the responsibility of the person. We started our discussion defining terms like the sovereignty of God, the human condition and slavery & bondage. As we explored the topic he formulated some good points about being born in sin he stated “Due to us being born in sin, it’s not our fault”. He explained when someone is in bondage they are chained to it, they are forced to do its will, our minds in-turn have no other options but to choice it. I disagreed, I said I can empathize with the…

  • Responsive to Bill O’Reilly’s Comments on American Nobility

    I’m at a lost when a reporter like Bill O’Reilly says America is a “noble” nation or the nobility of America. Because historically, to blacks in America it’s has not been “noble”. Let me explain, noble and/or nobility is defined as the quality of being noble in character, mind, birth, or rank. An when I look at this, I say yeah, America’s character has been noble. So noble in fact that other countries literally hate our presence. I traveled to at least 20 different countries in my lifetime and found this to be true. Also, Black American’s…
