    rirhe musical trends of 2014 felt so obvious in the moment: DJ Mustard beats, technophobia, strong female pop duets dominating the charts, polarizing booty-love anthems, a house music revival for the masses, LGBT voices making space for themselves, politicized music that sounded particularly relevant post-Ferguson. But when we look back at 2014, I’m not sure we’ll remember all that. It would be easy to say, “2014 was the year Beyoncé went full feminist, Nicki went borderline misandrist, and Taylor went ‘pop,’ though she’s been it for years,” but…

    Ten Singers That Should Be In Your Music Collection The great thing about digital music is you can walk around with days’ worth of music in your pocket.  It wasn’t too long ago that the equivalent amount of CDs would take up a rather large shelf and the equivalent amount of vinyl records would consume half a room. To amass days’, weeks’, even months’ worth of music, you’ll need to step out of your comfort zone.  We’re talking about stepping outside of your favorite genres.  To help you properly increase your music collection,…
  • Soul Jazz Announces More Essential ’70s Punk Compilations

    17 Dec 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Around this time last year, the great U.K. archivist label Soul Jazz ponied up to the bar with longtime British punk historian, Jon Savage, and put together an amazing, essential book, Punk 45: The Singles Cover Art Of Punk 1976-80, focused on artwork from the underworld of lost, obscure ’70s scuzz-punk, a strata that has been increasingly excavated as an influence over the last decade-plus. Coinciding with that book were three just as essential collections of songs from said underworld, one dealing with American goons and two with U.K. loons. On January 26, the next two volumes of…

    4 Dec 2014 | 7:07 am
    Electro-pop Frenchie Cosmobrown started to make waves this summer with his Tragic Holiday EP. It’s a savoury brew of languorous beats and graceful vocals, which demonstrates Cosmobrown’s mastery of the all-too-French art of seduction with suave sonorities and silver-tongued lyrics. We’re still waiting on the full-length record that was promised this autumn, but in the meantime his Tragic Holiday EP will sooth the eardrums and bring some warmth this winter. Tragic Holiday is out now on Masterman. Cosmobrown was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

The new record not only stimulates the senses but it allowed the quartet to delve deeper into more conceptual work, the contrast between light and dark, contentment and longing. A follow up to their critically acclaimed eponymous debut, Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Speedy Ortiz) once again helms the engineering deck, ensuring the new record retains all the distorted overdrive of the band’s characteristic fuzzed out, hard guitar-driven sound.

I found myself struggling to get thought the crowd who seemed to be completely smitten by the three deceivingly fragile figures and the synchronised moanings of their cheeky 'Americana'. Between a few fun stories and perfect vocal harmonies, a contagious complicity and a beer, these sisters from Watford had the crowd totally in love and cheering until the very end, which came soon after they delivered…

    I’m like most of you out there in the sense that I brush my teeth every morning, and I adore Tom Hiddleston.  What’s not to love?  He’s effortlessly charming, eternally happy, and he’s one hell of an actor to boot.  Thanks to his scene-stealing role as Loki in both Thor and The Avengers, the British thesp has become one of the hottest stars around, oft-mentioned as a contender for virtually every big role that’s available.  It also really helps when you have revered members of the literati personally endorsing you to play iconic characters in films based…

    One of the best television series’ to hit the airwaves in the last decade is, without a doubt, the AMC drama Mad Men.  Everything about the show feels authentic, from the 60’s period setting to the actors who play their respective roles.  It’s the show that made Jon Hamm a superstar, and it is about to enter into its final season, much to the chagrin of the die-hard fans who have followed the show since episode one.  Another great find from the show is actress Christina Hendricks, who plays the red-headed bombshell Joan Holloway.  Hendricks immediately rose to the top…

    Gunplay’s debut studio album has been perpetually in limbo for a few years now, but it looks like it could finally be getting a release. After a few false starts and a handful of mixtapes, including this year’s self-titled, Living Legend is scheduled to come out early next year. “Scuffed Timbs” is a new track from it and features Maybach labelmate Rick Ross, whose album the rapper first made a splash on all the way back in 2012.

    Yep, it’s that time of year again when holiday music becomes more or less inescapable. Most of it may be cloying and overplayed, but when it’s mixed with a healthy dose of sadness and/or humor, the results can be excellent. Prolific Vancouver multi-instrumentalist Nicholas Krgovich — the man behind “Along The PCH On Oscar Night,” one of our 70 Favorite Songs Of 2014 — has gone the latter route, dusting off his punny recurring holiday alias Chris Mastheim (Get it?

That zombie version of your own voice — grainy, creaking, drained of vitality — does not make you want to keep speaking. You have to think of a reason to stop talking, or you have to put your head down and just muscle through it. It’s not easy. But Kevin Gates raps like that. A couple of times on the new…

    When Mike Tyson was 20 years old, he became the youngest boxer ever to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles. He was also an idiot at that age, as he made sure to tell Earl Sweatshirt repeatedly when Earl, who is currently 20, interviewed Tyson for Citizens Of Humanity. Their conversation touches on each man’s personal story as well as much bigger topics such as world history, sex, war, and spirituality. Tyson takes charge early on and ends up learning a lot about Odd Future, though Earl does fit some good questions in, particularly the one at the end about what age Tyson stopped…

Think co-director Seth Rogen and James (“I’m creating as fast as I can”) Franco as a contemporary Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, cast as bumbling newsmagaziners obliged by the CIA to bump off their star interview subject, North Korean “supreme leader” Kim Jong-un. Early reviews suggested that the results were more stoopid Spies Like Us than edgy Dr. Strangelove. “About as funny as a communist food shortage, and just…

Records, who had initially released it, has been defunct since 1983).  The good people at High Moon Records have now seen fit to reissue the album in a lovely hardcover book, with the old R.S.O. imprint on the disc and a clarity previously unheard.  Clark’s forward thinking approach towards music – by spearheading the move toward what became…
  • The Seventeenth Day of Mellowmas: Sheer Misery

    Jeff Giles and Jason Hare
    17 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    Jason: You ever wonder if we’re having too much fun? Jeff: Are you high? It’s Mellowmas. No, jerkoff. I never wonder that. Jason: I mean, clearly there’s some reason we keep coming back to this holiday, right? Jeff: For me, it’s 50 percent guilt over the emails we get all year wanting to make sure there will be another Mellowmas, and 50 percent just wanting to hang out with you. Jason: I’m kind of sad it’s not at least 40/60, but we’ve been doing this for a long time now. So I’ll settle for half. Jeff: You know, it’s really more like 95/5,…
  • DVD Review: “Magic in the Moonlight,” Woody Allen’s Lives Up to its Name

    Scott Malchus
    16 Dec 2014 | 3:06 pm
    Berlin, 1928. Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth) is a renowned magician working under the guise of Wei Ling Soo. He marvels audiences by making elephants vanish on stage, cutting women in half, and performing a trick in which he enters a box, disappears, and then rematerializes in a chair ten feet away. But there’s no magic involved here; there is logic behind everything Stanley does and if pressed, he can answer how he pulls off each trick. You see, Stanley doesn’t believe in magic, or God, or even true love. Much to the chagrin of his beloved Aunt Vanessa (Eileen Atkins), Stanley is a…
  • BOXSET REVIEW: R.E.M., “7 IN – 83 – 88″ (vinyl singles collection)

    Rob Ross
    16 Dec 2014 | 7:30 am
    As it stands, the R.E.M. nostalgia/reissues campaign hasn’t slowed a bit, although this is definitely one for the completist/hardcore fan – and I should preface this by saying I certainly am one (I do have my original I.R.S. purchases of “Radio Free Europe”, “So. Central Rain” and “(Don’t Go Back To) Rockville” – not counting the three 12-inch U.K. singles I have as well…).  So it is that the people at I.R.S. have reissued the 45’s released by R.E.M. during their years on the label in their original picture sleeves and…

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

  • This Movie Clip Sums Up the SFX-Beatport Vision of the Future of Dance Music

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

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

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

    Peter Kirn
    15 Dec 2014 | 1:25 pm
    Old pipes? A vintage airplane? Mechanical equipment? Ben Burtt, Hollywood’s master sound designer, is remarkable for his economy and resourcefulness. That’s evident in this charming video in which he demonstrates how he evoked breaking machinery to realize the sound of the Millenium Falcon… not going into hyperdrive. The cinematic challenge is significant. It’s a bit joke, a running gag, but it has to simultaneously build tension in the film. And like the rest of Star Wars, the future is evoked by the past. (It is, after all, a galaxy long ago – and to impact…
  • For Apple, Music Making is For Everybody: New Holiday Ad

    Peter Kirn
    15 Dec 2014 | 11:23 am
    We face a challenge in the music technology community. Underlined by a century in which music creation was seen by some as the privilege of a few, in the studio world, and mass music was about records and radio, people might claim music making is niche. It’s seen by those onlookers as the domain of specialists, techies – a weird overlap of superstars and nerds. But some of us believe that musical expression as as essential as singing, and the tools matter just as much. You don’t see much music technology in Apple’s latest ad. I think it might be a new record or…

    Although video footage appears to contradict the stories of the authorities regarding the death of John Crawford, a grand jury decided not to bring charges against the officers. Now the family of Crawford, who was shot while walking around Walmart with a BB gun he picked up in jest, has filed a negligent death lawsuit and accused the Beavercreek Walmart of leaving the toy gun laying open on an unlocked shelf for days.

When last we spoke, he was as full of wonder and curiosity as when we first met him back at the Acid Test. His mischievous sense of adventure made him a perfect candidate for the position of manager for a band with similar sensibilities and and an equally similar disregard for…

    Foreign relations are a bitch, man. Take the longstanding US trade embargo with Cuba. It’s not unlike New York’s old “no liquor sales on Sunday” statute. Every marginally sane person understands it’s an archaic absurdity—but what politician would have the testicular heft to stand up and call it out? Luckily, the current occupant of the Oval Office is the by-now “nothing to lose” Barack Obama.

International newspaper headlines screamed with speculations of arson and organized crime involvement. (Back in 2005, the property, valued at approximately €6 million, was mysteriously “sold” to a barber for €250,000). But it hardly scandalized Roman society, who are used to the rumors that a rather staggering percentage of their restaurant business is actually a money-laundering front for Calabria’s brutal Ndrangheta—who make Sicily’s Costra Nostra look like a Kate…

It’s as if body has modulated the muscle it once used to consume cinema and replaced it with another—and for someone who has always enjoyed how viscerally and emotionally affected I am by the films I love and how sensitive I am to what moves me, it’s been frightening to feel so little where I used to feel so much. Perhaps it’s a symptom of getting older, perhaps my tastes have simply changed or become more particular, or perhaps it has to do with the…

  • Spotify on Uber Sucks (Says an Uber Driver)…

    Paul Resnikoff
    17 Dec 2014 | 10:04 am
    During a recent Uber trip across town… Me: Has anyone been asking you to play Spotify from the newly-integrated Uber app? My Uber Driver: Yeah, a few people. Me: And how is it? My Uber Driver: The thing is I don’t like it. Me: Why? My Uber Driver: I don’t know.  It’s annoying. Me: Because you have to listen to their music? My Uber Driver: Well I’m always asking the customer what station they want?  It’s much easier.  Right now, if you want classic music, I can put on the classic channel.  Some people they like country music. Me: But I want the song I want, and I want it…
  • Spotify No Longer Supports Merch Via ArtistLink

    Ari Herstand
    16 Dec 2014 | 11:39 pm
    Spotify announced via its blog this morning that it no longer supports merch integration via ArtistLink (formerly Topspin). Well that sure was short lived. It was only a year ago that Spotify announced the merch deal with Topspin’s ArtistLink. Then this past August it rolled out a very similar deal with BandPage. Luckily, the better company won out. To say it was a headache to get merch onto Spotify via AritstLink is an understatement. As an independent artist with some smarts, I couldn’t, for the life of me, get my merch added to my Spotify artist profile via ArtistLink. I even…

  • What College Radio Liked In 2014

    Arielle Parnes-Katz
    17 Dec 2014 | 2:04 pm
    At its core, college radio is about artist discovery and supporting unknown and emerging musicians. So who better to ask for their favorites of 2014 than people in the trenches at college stations? With over 70 people sending us their picks, as well as what they are looking forward to in 2015, we ended up with a diverse collection of curiosities. Some albums made appearances on many lists here and others only popped up once; some picks overlap with CMJ’s favorite albums of the year and others we overlooked or missed out on until now. Either way, these lists are a true testament to the…
  • Soul Jazz Announces More Essential ’70s Punk Compilations

    Eric Davidson
    17 Dec 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Around this time last year, the great U.K. archivist label Soul Jazz ponied up to the bar with longtime British punk historian, Jon Savage, and put together an amazing, essential book, Punk 45: The Singles Cover Art Of Punk 1976-80, focused on artwork from the underworld of lost, obscure ’70s scuzz-punk, a strata that has been increasingly excavated as an influence over the last decade-plus. Coinciding with that book were three just as essential collections of songs from said underworld, one dealing with American goons and two with U.K. loons. On January 26, the next two volumes of…
  • Listen: JEFF The Brotherhood – “What’s A Creep”

    Lizzie Plaugic
    17 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Even snarling guitar bros are getting into the Christmas spirit—kind of. Nashville’s JEFF The Brotherhood have just dropped What’s A Creep onto the internet, a song that you might not realize was holiday-themed if not for its accompanying photo of Jake and Jamin Orrall posing with a mall Santa. It’s loud and knuckleheaded-ly fast, with big guitar solos and nightmarish lines like, “He’ll be watching when you sleep.” In the end, it doesn’t really matter if it’s about Santa or a weird neighbor, ’cause it’s a good song. Listen…
  • Watch: Kendrick Lamar Debuts New Song On The Colbert Report

    Lizzie Plaugic
    17 Dec 2014 | 9:55 am
    Stephen Colbert will soon leave The Colbert Report for greener Late Show pastures, but he’s still got a few episodes left, and last night, Kendrick Lamar became the show’s final musical guest. Though he’s been dragging his feet on the good kid m.A.A.d city follow-up, Lamar’s definitely been working on something, because he debuted a new song yesterday—without a title. The cool, sly track features Thundercat and Bilal, while Kendrick skips between a slow soul flow and rapid, controlled aggression. Colbert, in his typical straight-faced goof way, asks Lamar if,…

    Guest Post
    17 Dec 2014 | 9:30 am
    By Wallace Collins on Entertainment Law Blog   Producers should be aware of their legal rights when it comes to working with recording artists. These days the music business, particularly the pop and urban markets, is producer-driven more so than ever before. Producers not only help capture the sound in the studio and use the available technology to mold it to be as commercially acceptable as possible, but more and more producers are finding and discovering new talent and developing the artist’s sound and even co-writing the songs with the artists. As a producer there are two copyrights…

    By Tyler Allen on Sonicbids Blog They say it takes 10 years of dedication to become an overnight success. This phrase is largely due to all of the things that the public is blissfully unaware of. We acknowledge artists when they pop into the mainstream, but we're blind to the denied demos, poor image choices, and bad business deals that happened before they reached a worldwide stage. When looking at a lot of top artists throughout history, you begin to see that it wasn't always their talent that slowed their success. I mean, look at Decca's infamous rejection of the Beatles; it wasn't…

    [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.

  • Play vinyl with Sonos

    George Howard
    23 Nov 2014 | 4:20 pm
    Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some Sonos. We’ve got pretty much every product they’ve come up with in the house, and just can’t imagine living without it. I recently decided that I wanted to add the ability to play vinyl into our arsenal (the kids are old enough so that they don’t seem too inclined to try to ride/draw on the turntable). I’d been plotting my vinyl strategy out over the course of many years of insomnia-nights, and so when I finally decided to pull the trigger, it went very smoothly. I’ve had in my possession an old Victrola that…

  • How to control Apple’s iTunes Radio with Sonos

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

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

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

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

    Raquel Fernandes
    16 Dec 2014 | 1:30 am
    This is the second of a three-part series from Dominic McHugh on the correspondence of Alan Jay Lerner. Read the previous letters to Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. The next installment will appear on Tuesday, 23 December 2014. Amongst the many famous people Lerner corresponded with, Frederick Loewe is naturally the most important in terms of musical collaborators. Yet sadly, correspondence between Lerner and Loewe is quite rare. I found only a few letters between them during the course of the research for the book, and was particularly disappointed by the lack of letters from their early…
  • Merry Elvis Christmas recollections

    In celebration of the recently published biography, Elvis Presley: A Southern Life by Joel Williamson, I thought I would share some memories of Christmas past. In the 1970s we listened to Elvis on vinyl. Every December when it was time to decorate the tree you could hear the deep dulcet warbling of Elvis coming from the hi-fi. Some of my favorite Elvis renditions of Christmas songs follow. Original photo by Ollie Atkins. Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons. With the tree up and ready to be decorated we’d pop on the Elvis to kick off the Christmas season with “The First Noel”.
  • Top five Robert Altman films by sound

    Raquel Fernandes

    Director Robert Altman made more than thirty feature films and dozens of television episodes over the course of his career. The Altman retrospective currently showing at MoMA is a treasure trove for rediscovering Altman’s best known films (M*A*S*H, Nashville, Gosford Park) as well as introducing unreleased shorts and his little-known early work as a writer. Every Altman fan has her or his own list of favorite films. For me, Altman’s use of music is always so innovative, original, and unprecedented that a few key films stand out from the crowd based on their soundtracks. Here are my top…

But nonetheless, it was really special seeing him when the first ever Dick Clark Ground Breaking Award at the American Country Countdown Awards. Per usual, Kenny gave an amazing performance and was quite possibly one of the most gracious stars when accepting the award. If Kenny doesn't get an "Entertainer Of The Year" award after this next tour...fair warning, I'm totally boycotting. Follow me on Twitter for more music stuff! @AshleyAHelene

  • Watch Jerry Granelli Trio play A Charlie Brown Christmas

    18 Dec 2014 | 3:04 am
    Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown! On Dec. 9, 1965 — 49 years ago — nearly half of the U.S. TV-watching population tuned in to A Charlie Brown Christmas, an animated broadcast that featured the music of the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Prior to its debut, producers were worried the show was too religious, and the soundtrack was too jazz cutting-edge for children's programming. Were they ever wrong: 15 million homes had eyes glued to that broadcast, and it has since become an iconic Christmas classic. Jerry Granelli, a drummer and longtime native of Halifax, N.S., is the only surviving member of that…
  • How Handel's Messiah went from cost-saving strategy to annual ritual

    18 Dec 2014 | 3:00 am
    If you are a classical music concertgoer, there is a pretty high likelihood that you either have attended or will attend a Messiah this December. Handel's classic oratorio might be the single most consistently performed piece of music in the entire repertory. By way of illustration, this season there will be (or has been) at least one performance of Handel's oeuvre-eclipsing masterpiece in every provincial capital (there is, as well, a sure-to-be-fabulous one happening in Montreal) and Fredericton (though you may have heard excerpts from it at this concert). And that's not counting Vancouver…

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

    With an appealing visual aesthetic, a gorgeous Alsisar Mahal which is equal parts rustic and modern, and a parade of largely underground international acts along with a bunch of homegrown ones – Magnetic Fields festival entered the rapidly growing space of Indian music festivals last year with a package that was “a unique marriage of contemporary culture with Rajasthani heritage and hospitality”. Last year, when we’d interviewed Munbir Chawla of Wild City, one of the founders of the festival, he’d told us that the festival market of India lacks something “that not only has good…
  • Listen to Sandunes’ Remix of Nischay Parekh’s ‘Philosophize’

    Ritwik Deshpande
    9 Dec 2014 | 5:01 am
    Earlier this year, when Sandunes teamed up with Wolves for The Memory Lamp, she said their motivation for producing the second part of the suite was to evoke “the collective nostalgia which inherently reminds us of our interdependence in an age where independence is so celebrated”. With those words, she might just have summarized the pattern of her existence in India’s independent music ecosystem (and beyond). Over the last two years, she has established herself as a restless collaborator – a personality type that couldn’t be more far removed from the stereotype of the introverted…

    As I walked into Blue Frog and heard Danny Brown trying match the upward ascent of a Rustie synth-storm, it felt like the airlock of a spaceship had just broken loose and I was being sucked into outer space. In this case, what outer space looked like was a lake of sweaty bodies undulating in front of Glaswegian producer Hudson Mohawke, who was dropping his Warp / LuckyMe label-mate’s propulsive collaboration with everyone’s favorite Detriot-based rapper. It took a moment for it to sink in – the Hudson Mohawke, the guy responsible for crafting the sonics of three of last year’s…

Of late I’ve also been examining the standard planning propaganda* (I use that term here in its modern, non-pejorative sense**) about the future of the Flats in Vancouver.

    Looks like Voltage may obtain subscriber info in Canada from Teksavvy, but not without court oversight and privacy protections for people accused of infringement. Still, this was just a motion. The demand letters may roll out soon, but this litigation might prove to be unprofitable, given the tone and language of the judgement. This could play out in many different ways.

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

    Peter Lee
    10 Nov 2014 | 9:27 am
    I get a lot of emails from people asking, “Where do you find this music that you review? It’s not on my radio station?” It is a mystery why melodic pop/power pop/pure pop is not more popular on today’s radio. And I won’t turn this into a diatribe against corporate radio, although it would be easy to go off on that tangent. To tell the truth, I don’t even listen to music on traditional radio. Instead, I turn to Internet radio. There are torch bearers across the country broadcasting the gorgeous strains of pop music artists wanting to be compared to the…
  • Album Review: The Both

    Peter Lee
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:43 am
    Aimee Mann has been caught in a bit of a rut. Her first three albums dazzled critics, with her debut album, Whatever, topping my all-time favorite album list. But without her collaborator, the amazingly talented Jon Brion, her songs lacked the power, quirkiness and melody that was so apparent in her first three albums. She showed some signs of breaking through that slump in 2012's Charmer, but it's taken a songwriting and performing partnership with punk/indie rocker Ted Leo to awaken her. Leo opened for Mann during her 2012 tour in support of Charmer, and the two decided to write some…
  • Guilty Pleasures: ‘Love Will Keep Us Together’

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

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

We ended up stripping it down to just a few of us, which turned into The Harmaleighs. 2. Tell me about the name. Haley+Kaylee+Harmony= Harmaleighs 3. Tell me about your writing process.

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

I’m obsessed with caramelized onions and the flavor of the wine soaked onions and thyme paired so beautifully with the tangy goat cheese and flaky puff pastry. It’s the perfect appetizer or mid day snack. I ate one cold the day after and the flavors were so bold and scrumptious! So add this to your list…

    A few important things church taught us as teens that still hold true. I think our generation likes to complain about the church we were raised in. It was backward, we say. It lacked grace or its theology was off. We have all sorts of reasons to be anti the establishment of church, but in doing this, we’re forgetting some of the invaluable lessons church taught us, especially as teens.

His biggest credit came this year when he produced the Migos smash single “Fight Night”. Other credits include Young Scooter, Jose Guapo and a handful of other tracks he produced for Migos. We asked Twan to answer a couple of short questions for us so that when the next you hear about him you know who he his. What do you like most about producing?

    Its amazing to see how far hip-hop has come over these 40 plus odd years and its interesting to see its mutations. OG’s are frustrated with the post Soulja Boy era of rap music while the new generation eagerly explores the infinite frontiers of the musical phenomenon. Hip-Hop isn’t dead its just more accessible by the world, just ask nineties baby hip hop creator Sonny Digital. Sonny Digital is one the most sought after young producers who are skating through the Hip-Hop scene right now. His monster hits like “Racks” and 2 Chainz “Birthday Song” bang at…

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

    27 Nov 2014 | 8:03 pm
    When we're in other countries and meeting new people my partner - who is American - is regularly jokingly recommended to introduce herself as Canadian by the person she's meeting for the first time. Being American is often mocked in other countries. People are astounded by American politics, American media, and American culture. They will gladly point these things out to any Americans they happen to meet. This mocking doesn't stop within America. In US left wing conversations shame of your country's policies is a recurring theme1, and when you're asked - outside of the US - whether you're…

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

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

    Jillian Mapes

    rirhe musical trends of 2014 felt so obvious in the moment: DJ Mustard beats, technophobia, strong female pop duets dominating the charts, polarizing booty-love anthems, a house music revival for the masses, LGBT voices making space for themselves, politicized music that sounded particularly relevant post-Ferguson. But when we look back at 2014, I’m not sure we’ll remember all that. It would be easy to say, “2014 was the year Beyoncé went full feminist, Nicki went borderline misandrist, and Taylor went ‘pop,’ though she’s been it for years,” but…

The British singer sang “Need Ur Luv” with Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij—with whom she wrote the song—on piano. For the majority of the performance, Charli danced atop Batmanglij’s grand piano, dressed in lingerie and some truly outlandish glittery platforms.

    As we’ve mentioned multiple times before, The Colbert Report is coming to an end. As one of the show’s final guests, Kendrick Lamar was under a lot of pressure to give Colbert something worthy of headlines — and he did. As Pitchfork notes, the currently untitled song was performed alongside musicians Thundercat and Bilal, and was reportedly produced by Astronote. The track comments on the racial situation in America — if not the world. Though it doesn’t directly address them, it’s obviously tied, if only in timeliness, to the incidents in Ferguson, MO and…

Minaj, who is celebrating the release of her highly anticipated, highly good The Pinkprint, appeared as a guest and gave a performance of “Bed of Lies,” featuring Skylar Grey. Watch that performance over at Pitchfork. She also gave an interview, in which she and Jimmy compared yearbook photos, and in which Jimmy made an uncomfortable, puffy facial expression…

  • Single Serving: Night Beds – Me, Liquor and God

    Josh Henderson
    15 Dec 2014 | 3:42 pm
    In 2013 Nashville native Winston Yellen (who records as Night Beds) released Country Sleep, a confident album full of folk-tinged, guitar driven tracks. He’s remained pretty quiet since, but recently dropped the new single “Me, Liquor and God” which signifies the beginning of a bold new sound for Night Beds. The wistful melodies of songs like “Even If We Try” and “Ramona” remain, but the new track is more interested in M83-esque synths and drumbeats than quiet crooning. Yellen’s stunning voice even gets the auto-tune treatment. If this is any indication, Night Beds are sure to…

  • Single Serving: Spirit Faces – Cloudplay

    Matt Dillon
    12 Dec 2014 | 12:30 pm
    A steadfast xylophone melody, a drumbeat tumbling down a set of stairs, gentle storytelling vocal sets and a triumphant synth, Spirit Faces‘ “Cloudplay” is a dynamic masterpiece. Completely original and addicting……….it’s like a pop hybrid. He doesn’t have many Soundcloud followers yet, but I’m sure that will change drastically as this Sydney based, wet behind the ears, producer makes his rounds through the hype driven blogosphere.

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

    Question I’ve never played sax before but I loved at the first sight when I heard it. Bought an Alto sax because It was cheaper but, I really wanted a Tenor Will I be able to play a tenor after learn how to play an Alto sax? -WEndel   Response Yes, you will. They have many similarities. Fingers go in the same places. You read music in the same way. The main difference will be with how the embouchure feels. But if anything, it should be easier to transition from alto to tenor than from alto to to tenor. The only way that’s not true is in terms of the air required to play tenor…

    11 Dec 2014 | 6:50 am
    Question: How to learn all those scales and do I have to learn all those note symbols? I hate musical notation since primary school. -Blazka Neal: Hey Blazka, Basically music can be played in 12 different keys, each with a different root. And the keys have different variations – major, minor, etc. To be able to play music you need to be comfortable with, for instance, three flats. To become comfortable with music that has three flats, playing the notes in a sequence with three flats can help you practice. That sequence is a scale. Related Posts:Saxophone Scales – “I need…

Miley performed a live version of the song during her Backyard Sessions two years ago. The movie is based around the “Free the Nipple” campaign which tries to address society’s taboo about public exposure of female breasts and draws attention to the issue of gender equality and encourage discussion over America’s glorification of violence and repression of…

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

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…

    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…

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.

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).

    Toronto based synth duo Austin Garrick and singer Bronwyn Griffin emerged from obscurity with their contribution to Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” soundtrack in 2011. For the film’s title track, “A Real Hero,” which lit up the iTunes charts following the soundtrack’s release, Electric Youth collaborated with College. As opposed to capitalizing on their sudden attention, Electric Youth took their time to stitch a worthwhile record together.

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

It’s a savoury brew of languorous beats and graceful vocals, which demonstrates Cosmobrown’s mastery of the all-too-French art of seduction with suave sonorities and silver-tongued lyrics. We’re still waiting on the full-length record that was promised this autumn, but in the meantime his Tragic Holiday EP will sooth the eardrums and bring some warmth this winter. Tragic Holiday is out now on Masterman. Cosmobrown was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

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

YouTube is the behemoth video sharing/social media platform from Google where users can share stories, shows, and cat videos – loads of cat videos. Many businesses, mainly up-and-coming businesses, are utilizing video ads to be seen by millions of users on a daily basis. The best way to spread awareness of your brand is…

    4 Dec 2014 | 10:01 am
    SoSoActive.com Omarion, former lead singer of r&b boy band B2K, just released his 4th solo studio album “Sex Playlist” last night Tuesday, December 2nd. Omarion (also known as Maybach O) signed to Rick Ross’ label Maybach Music Group (MMG) back in 2012. MMG has a roster of backpack and street rappers such as Meek Mill, Wale, Gunplay and Stalley, so for Omarion to soften up the bunch and bring a sexy r&b sound to the label, levels out the dynamics of the group pretty well. Omarion has done pretty well for himself as a solo artist after the group B2K parted ways. His debut solo…

    Lil B has released a new single that takes its name from the protest movement that sprang up in the wake of Eric Garner‘s choking death at the hands of the NYPD: “I Can’t Breathe.”Except instead of just protesting Garner’s death, Lil B also appears to be protesting the oppressive hand of Mark Zuckerberg following his own alleged ban from Facebook.On Tuesday Lil B said he’d been blocked from Facebook for 30 days after going on a rant about rape, slavery, and animal rights. “Facebook has blocked me for 30 days for speaking my mind with no intent of hate…
  • Apple NOT guilty for deleting songs off your iPod

    Joel Freimark

    Just a few weeks ago, we reported that a court case had revealed that Apple knowingly and purposefully deleted non-iTunes music off of user iPods via forced updates, and were on their way to a massive settlement payout to users. At the time, it seemed like an open and shut case, as Apple only had the rather lackluster defenses of “protecting users” and “better user experience” in their favor, and nearly every analyst assumed the company would be paying out massive sums in the case. However, the case collapsed around the plaintiffs in the final days, and the jury presiding over the…

There are some you’d expect—things became more informal, vernacular and racy over time—and some that might not have occurred to you: For instance in the 1950s apparently all anyone listened to was Christmas music. Or that from 1890 through the 1940s there was a prevalence of naming the genre in the title…

    Often times a debut can be like musical puberty: An awkward phase that requires something like a new producer or occasionally a complete overhaul on the sophomore effort. After all, it took a while for bands like Radiohead and The Flaming Lips to find their sound.I mean, how often can we expect another Doors debut, Doggystyle, or Appetite for Destruction? But every year, there’s a handful of debut records that shake things up; the Savages’ debut Silence Yourself  last year contained a written manifesto, giving their music dead-eye purpose, like Joy Division in the ’70s.In…

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

Howard Tate shows just how hard the music business is.  His first album in particular, where he teamed with writer/producer Jerry Ragovoy (he wrote Time Is On My Side by the Rolling Stones), is chock full of great soul that should have launched a long and successful career.

  • A Trip To UK Ukulele Luthier Rob Collins at Tinguitar

    In late summer this year I took a trip up to the charming town of Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire to visit two well known people in the ukulele world - Rob Collins, Luthier at Tinguitar and his partner Mary Agnes Krell, director of the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival. We had a terrific day and I was keen to see Rob's new workshop in the town. (Rob had previously been building from home but had made the step to take on new premises to help him in building his much sought after instruments.)Hebden BridgeWe had a good chat and Rob explained his roots in instrument building that went back to 2004…

  • Becky G – Can’t Stop Dancin’

    13 Dec 2014 | 7:29 pm
    I’ve heard some talk of Becky G over the past year, but never really took the time to hear her music.  Her latest soca-infused pop single “Don’t Stop Dancin’” is definitely playlist-worthy and marks her introduction to the Spanglish Noise blog.  It’s easy to compare Becky G to J Lo if you heard her remake to Jenny From The Block  (approved by Jennifer Lopez of course), but Becky is admittedly a bit girly in personality (she’s only 17), while J Lo rose into music with  more of a bad girl Bronx sound.  That’s not to say that Becky…

    Prince Royce featuring who??! That’s right folks, tonight Prince Royce goes Top 40 in his new video “Stuck On A Feeling” featuring everybody’s favorite regg..err..rap icon, Snoop Dogg.  The road that led to this collaboration progressed from the Spanglish bachata of “Stand By Me” to the English tracks interspersed in his third and most recent album Soy El Mismo.  I personally was not a fan of the pop sound on Soy El Mismo, but I have to respect Royce for his hard work and ambitions to cross over into the mainstream market.  It has already been…
  • Justin Quiles – Carpe Diem

    Joseph
    30 Nov 2014 | 3:50 pm
    After many years of hard work and limited reach, Justin Quiles has finally broken free over this past year to earn some wider recognition.  The Puerto Rican singer comes from the Orlando reggaeton scene, yet his influences are more diverse than the genre’s stereotype, and his creativity more ambitious.  Perhaps this has something to do with how J Quiles was born in the US, raised in Puerto Rico during his youth, and then returned to the US during his formative teenage years at a time when reggaeton was poised to explode in the US.  While he was still too new to reap the full…

    It might be frigid in the northern winterlands this time of year, but Miami singer Madai turns up the heat with her new single “Punto y Coma.”  For those of you who have stuck it out with this blog over the past couple years, you’ll remember that we interviewed Madai early on to learn about her ambitions as a pop singer and her signing to Pitbull’s Mr. 305 inc label.  Madai has since taken her career in a different direction and returned to her Cuban roots as a promising young salsa singer. “Punto y Coma” is musically highly melodic and lively, which is…
  • Danny Fornaris – A Mi Tambien

    Joseph
    1 Nov 2014 | 9:02 pm
    I’ve always been a huge fan of Danny Fornaris and most of his singles have made an appearance on this website.  Popular music in Puerto Rico often comes in the form of either pop, tropical, or reggaeton, so Danny’s continued voyage into the world of experimental indie rock – with a Latin twist – has been an enjoyable ride. Danny’s brilliance returns today with a Halloween-appropriate music video for the love track A Mi Tambien.  The drug references and trippy hallucinations found in the video are part of the metaphor surrounding the word…

She made numerous appearances on The Tonight Show, first with Jack Parr, and then with longtime host Johnny Carson, becoming a staple of late night television. Joan Rivers had a very special relationship to The Ed Sullivan Show. Not only did she make 19 appearances on the program, she also wrote lines for another beloved…
  • Happy 70th Birthday Diana Ross!

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

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

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

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

With all of the mobile devices, music services, and the ability to download just about any song or album digitally, everyone potentially has a full library of music at their fingertips. As a music blogger, I listen to music of various genres just about every day. Sometimes people send me music, and there are times I receive tips about music from music industry insiders. However, every once in a while I stumble upon music while not looking for it. This is exactly what took place a…

  • Chimes- Total Sunflower

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

Hopefully this record is a good reflection of that. I feel it’s strong sonically and harder hitting than the previous record [Harmonicraft]. I’m happy with the last record, but I feel on this record, it’s just more solid song to song. You’ve got to…

The torturer is now ready for final judgement, but Furman wonders if "it's time to go back inside" and why he is even there in the first place.Laid out over a bed of bubbling bass and buzzing guitars, Torturer is further proof that Krill transcends their goofy online presence and is a "guitar…

Spaces of Freedom in Iran Jake Threadgould An account of one traveler’s stay in Iran: On my second night in Iran I was invited to a party in a middle-class area of Tehran. Since we were a mixed gendered group with a foreigner (yours truly) in their midst, we had to be reasonably inconspicuous when we stepped out of the car and onto the street.

    Paul Smith
    20 Nov 2014 | 11:29 am
    Our American cousins certainly put on a show to remember at London’s Alexandra Palace last night as both Gaslight Anthem, and support act Deer Tick, delivered the type of sets that would grace headline slots at any number of Festivals. It was a relentless, jaw dropping evening of rock music that should be the blueprint for how all gigs should be executed. Support act Deer Tick were a real surprise. Thankfully, many of the normal bar-huggers were stage-front to see a 30 minute set that covered a myriad of genres from standard rock to unapologetic rockabilly (the well-received ‘I Got a…

    Florida band Merchandise have started to gain quite a reputation for exhilarating live sets, and their growing popularity now sees them gracing well respected music venues the breadth of Europe. Gone are the days of small pub sets, and their change in genre from punk to an indie-pop formula has certainly seen them acquire fans from a much wider audience. A new record label (4AD) further quantifies the bands ascendancy and when coupled with a back catalog of unapologetic guitar laced ‘wall of noise’ material it’s clear to see why this current European tour, and in particular their London…

    After a two year hiatus Hannah Lou Clark has returned with a compelling, genre-crossing EP containing a lead track with the sort of punch one would normally expect from heavy-weight boxer. The artist’s previous project ‘Foe’ ended towards the end of 2012, which surprised many considering her impressive ‘Bad Dream Hotline’ LP, and one assumed that may have been her lot. However, credit where credit is due as she has now returned, minus the ‘Foe’ moniker and PJ Harvey comparisons, with an impressive and fresh new sound that eclipses her previous releases. Written and recorded…

    As the year draws to it’s conclusion one starts reviewing and considering their tracks of the year. My mind was certainly made up, which i guess is a little unfair considering there are still 6 weeks until we tip our hat to 2015. However, Speelburg (aka Noah Sacré) and his release ‘Kline’ has certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons with, what i believe to be, one of the strongest debuts for many a year. As a Brighton resident, who originally hailed from France, Belgium and the US, Speelburg is currently more famous for his production skills than that of up and coming…

With that, here are some of our favorite albums of the year. The list certainly is not exhaustive but is rather a reflection of the music that aided our emotional journey through 2014.Kishi Bashi,…

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

The microphones of the “golden era” helped to harvest some of our most important endorsements from major record producers and engineers.

  • Gerard Way aims for more soulful second album

    18 Dec 2014 | 3:13 am
    Gerard Way's new album will feature "old soul music." The 37-year-old musician has suggested he will shy away from the Britpop-inspired sound of his debut solo album 'Hesitant Album' - released earlier this year - in favour of embracing the sound of his track 'Get The Gang Together'. He explained: "[I have] changed things up again. The stuff I've been writing recently feels a lot more akin to songs like 'Get The Gang Together' - it feels like it's moving in a garage-y, old soul music kind of direction." Continuing to speak about the record - which he plans to record in September 2015 - he…

    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…

One of the few all-ages venues in San Diego, the night’s audience, and even most of the performers, was comprised largely of teenagers and parents of the performers. While not necessarily the largest of crowds, they were energetic enough to make up for it at times.First up for the night was Vile Creations, a group of kids playing their first gig as a band. For better or worse, it showed. While they do deserve some credit for adding leads and solos to hardcore, a genre not known for either, they were generally…

Working as a songwriter, composer, producer and mix engineer in Germany since 2002, confining only to one genre or style of music has been out of question for the Cameroonian born keyboardist and bass guitarist. Even though four on the floor has always been default for his musical programming, it was not until 2013 that he decided to make his ancient love affair with dance music…

  • Let’s Talk Streaming…

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

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

A “foot stomping, tear jerking, New Americana band from Boulder, Colorado,” the Ridgelings are currently hard at work on their first record, Hard Winter Rations.   The band centers around the infectious songwriting of Tim Novak, but receives an extra jolt of energy from stringsmiths (is that a word?

  • Can Neil Young’s Pono Player Really Break Through?

    slightlyoffkey
    25 Oct 2014 | 6:10 pm
    On Thursday, Neil Young officially launched Pono—a digital music player that costs $400 and promises the highest sound quality on the market. His crusade for better sound has raised over $6.2 million on Kickstarter and gained endorsements from the likes of Eddie Vedder, Beck, and Sting. The device—which resembles a Toblerone candy bar—will hit stores in March and will be accompanied by an iTunes-like Pono music store. Now, I’m as much of an audiophile as the next columnist and I have the speakers to prove it, but there’s one glaring problem I see with this new “wonder-iPod.”…
  • Thom Yorke’s Self-Release is Out of Touch With Consumers

    slightlyoffkey
    9 Oct 2014 | 6:51 am
    It’s no secret that Thom Yorke actively hates the music industry. After ditching his record label in 2007, he’s since accused Apple of trying to “destroy music” and Spotify of being the “last desperate fart of a dying corpse.” Perhaps it was naïve on my part, but I had really begun to think that there was nothing more Yorke could do to surprise me—that his musical misanthropy had reached some kind of bitter plateau. Then he released his new album through BitTorrent. Yes, that BitTorrent. The album, “Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes,” finds Yorke shunning literally every…

    When Daniel Ek launched Spotify, a stated goal was to diminish music piracy by giving piracy a competitor. Spotify accomplished this by offering a competitive service which pays rights holders for the music. As Ek suggests in his latest interview, we are just in the beginning, “…there’s a billion people doing it [listening to music online]. If they contribute to a legal service of any kind, that’s a huge win.” Ek goes on to say “We are in a growing industry, not really an industry where we’re fighting for market share.”  The music labels are all adjusting…

    We rather love the Danish soaring electro-pop of Hannah Schnieder and she’s back again with new track ‘Wild Open’. Taken from the now released ‘Red Lines’ the track is the perfect showcase for Hannah’s voice and has a hint of Kate Bush with it’s experimental and brilliant sound. On her new album ‘Red Lines’, Hannah is fully aware for the first time that she’s always balancing between extremes. This realisation has given her songs a new sense of clarity and optimism. She’s also investigating – to highlight the contrasts again –…

Second single ‘Another Way’ has already received airtime from BBC Radio One’s Huw Stephens, as well as gaining ‘Track Of The Day’ over on Clash Magazine. As a fan of Joy Division, I was sceptical before listening but FANS have ticked all the right boxes. Finally another British guitar band that have slightly strayed from the indie genre to create something different to the current bands on the NME radar.

    How to Sing Better

  • 3 Tips On How To Sing In Tune Without Trying

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

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

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

    One of the most common things you read or hear said in singing circles is the statement “sing from your diaphragm”. Singing from your diaphragm is seen as the basis of good singing technique, but it can be tough for a singer to understand just how to do it. In this article, I want to explain simply how to sing from your diaphragm, so any singer can understand it and then know exactly how to do it.

    How to practice singing? This is a question that is probably asked by most singers at one point in their lives. Do I just need to practice the songs I want to sing, or are there other things I should practice that will help me to become a better singer?

(Except the last 30 sec which in all fairness is pretty good).   St. Vincent has shared a video for “Birth In Reverse,” a track off of her self-titled record from earlier this year. Annie Clark has had a fantastic year, and she stands preternaturally tall in the video, acting as de facto goddess ruling over the whole world and taking her insane guitar-playing skills up into a starry galaxy. The video, directed by Willo Perron, is intercut with some Terrence Malick-esque shots of the sky and also sees Clark in a…

  • King of Cats – Working Out – LP Review

    Jamie Coughlan
    17 Dec 2014 | 2:40 pm
    When my grandfather passed away in 2002, I witnessed my grandmother cry, sob in fact, and intone, “What will I do now?” The moment was so raw, intimate, and completely out of character for a tough and life hardened 85 year old Irish woman, who had buried her first three children as infants, that I didn’t know where to look. I shuffled uneasily, and, to my eternal shame, cowardly looked away, frightened by her vulnerability and visceral honesty. Listening to Working Out, the debut album by King of Cats (Brighton/Oxford singer songwriter Max Levy) is a similarly intimate,…
  • Laura Marling Streams ‘Short Movie’, Announces New LP

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

    Jamie Coughlan

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

    Kat McNicol

    For me, the acronym ‘DIY’ instantly conjures up images of crap shelving, badly hung wallpaper, louping thumb nails and excessive cursing. Mercifully, in terms of music, the abbreviation denotes something far more interesting (and far less frustrating/ painful). With a wealth of emerging artists unwilling to become corporate whores to the ‘music industry’, many are instead opting to do it themselves, and the results are fairly impressive. Lanarkshire alt-rock quartet Minor Delilah present a master class in DIY. From ferocious social media campaigns, to street gigs and busking their way…
  • The Drink – Company – LP Review

    Ryan Hickey
    15 Dec 2014 | 11:37 am
    So the story about The Drink is that Rough Trade stocked their homebrewed EP despite the band being unsigned. Immediately, my thought that this the sort of overhyped nugget of information that music reviewers and publicists love to drop into descriptions of a debut album. But upon hearing their phenomenal Company, I’ve decided that it was hardly a gamble. This album is stupendous, and I had way more fun reviewing it than I initially expected. It kicks off with “Microsleep.” A post-punk bass-line out of a Fugazi track anchors a choirgirl singsong with lyrics about petit mal seizures.

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

    These Hip Hop songs will surely have you waking up in a good mood like “Oh it must be Saturday” and the women are perfect for the job. 1.Who’s That Girl by Eve They wanna know who’s that girl, lalalalalalalalala! Released on February 8, 2001, the rapper who described herself as a pit bull dropped a banger for the clubs. Eve made this track fun and edgy for the people. The latin vibe screams Miami and spanish Harlem on a night out. Be very careful because this melody could be stuck in your head for days! 2.U.N.I.T.Y.

    A rare photo holds so much essence and truth in any culture.. Tupac and Biggie started one of the biggest wars in Hip Hop but once upon of time they were friends. These photos hold the very evidence of their relationship and makes us wonder just what exactly happened? The turning point of their relationship is still a little shaky till this day even with countless interviews and recording. All we have to is appreciate this photographer for capturing this classic moment. Waddup Red Man!

    The saying “Shortcut Killed Deer” is a Liberian parable told to me by many…   I am always looking for the shortcut. The shortcut when I am on my way somewhere. The shortcut to finishing my homework. The shortcut to finding a date. Even the shortcut to an orgasm. Basically, I am constantly on a hunt to the shortcut of life. But ask me where have I really gotten with that type of behavior? Half pass no where! I am always pushed behind farther than where I started from. We were taught to look for shortcuts. I don’t believe that my behavior was learned I was…

  • Festival review: Simple Things 2014

    On paper On paper – or webpage – this year’s Simple Things festival in Bristol promised performances from an innovative cross-section of artists including Caribou, Mogwai, Death from Above 1979, Black Lips, Liars and How to Dress Well, dotted throughout the city centre in a creative selection of venues.   Our verdict With the festival spanning 15 stages, the main concern for any enthused muso attending would be the inevitability of being torn between giants like Mogwai, and up-and-comers such as dreamy, laptop pop act Oliver Wilde.

    Leeds based Samir Alikhanizadeh, aka Happa, has been making waves in the UK underground scene with his bass heavy, industrial techno music. And aside from all the enthusiastic conversations he’s happened to stir throughout the music community (Four Tet, Mary Anne Hobbs and James Blake are endorsing him!), people are talking about his age. He’s only 16, but don’t let it distract you from his music! It’s quite a forceful and ominous presence, with the stomach punching bass lines that help to create a violent and gritty resonance. Then comes the calm after the storm:…

    While developing our new Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music app we did an experiment with the CoreMotion module of the iPhone. CoreMotion lets you detect and track movements of the iPhone in real time. There are many different approaches to implement apps that can handle iPhone movement. The most frequently used technique is to use a method that detects the iPhone being shake but it is not precise and did not work for us. For a more precise tracking method you need to use CoreMotion. In our solution, we were able to implement a routine that would detect the iPhone movement when the user…
