    Do you ever wonder how you’re faring with your online reach and influence? Maybe you need to stop and take a snapshot of where you stand. I call it your Internet Influence Index (or 3i for short). A 3i is a listing of your current number of friends, followers and other statistics that indicate how well you’re connecting with fans online. It’s a quick measurement of your Internet presence. I refer to it as a snapshot because, if you’re proactive at all online, the numbers will be in constant flux – hopefully in an upward direction. Of course, I need to emphasize…

    Musicians lead demanding lives. Practicing, sight-reading, rehearsing, and auditioning all can be stressful and, at times, actually painful. How to stay healthy and free from pain? I think the answer lies in realizing that your health is completely tied in with your creative efforts, or the way you respond to music itself. In brief, good health is a creative act. Here are seven tips to get you started. To be a musician is to speak the language of music. When you think of yourself as a musical storyteller, your performances become lively and interesting.

    Everybody had the moment when they realized they messed up. When Lady Gaga’s debut album “Fame” was nominated for six Grammy Awards, it was at this moment, music executive L.A. Reid knew he messed up. The story goes like this. Reid had signed her when he was the head at Island Def Jam and then dropped her.

    Unloading upon the ears of the disillusioned with the force of a Reverend A.W. Nix sermon, The Lord’s Revolver, by Nottingham/London two-piece Whisky Stain, sounds like Royal Blood having an existential crisis. Intoxicated with heavy riffs drowning in fuzz, pounding drums and the harmonies of a bittersweet gospel hymn proclaiming the beginning of the end. This is Whisky Stain’s calling card. The Lord’s Revolver is released on 28th August 2015 through I’m Not From London Records. The post Whisky Stain – The Lord’s Revolver appeared first on AltSounds.

    You might recognize Eszter Balint‘s name from the television series Louie, in which she played (during an end-of-the-season arc) the neighbor/love interest to Louis C.K.  But here, the Hungarian-born actress shows her true talent and skill as a singer, songwriter and violinist.  Airless Midnight is her second solo album – her first in a decade (!) and her third overall.  Here, she’s joined by such talents as Dave Schramm and Marc Ribot, and this album is, indeed, a revelation. Opening with “The Mother,” the slow-syrupy almost-jazz groove takes you into a…

    If you’re looking for a compilation of classic soul hits you have a great many options. The Motown and Stax hits in particular have been reissued, remastered, boxed, vinyled, and collected in deluxe sets. And the hits are great, but what about all of those wonderful soul records that weren’t hits, but are deserving of a wider audience than they got on their initial release? Thankfully, there are choices there too, with many forgotten records having been gathered over the years in compilations that vary in quality from sublime to subpar. Last week Rockbeat Records released a…

    all photos by Matthew B. Thompson Kristian Matsson, better known as The Tallest Man on Earth, doesn’t need much for an introduction. The Swedish born singer-songwriter rocks a style so unique and unmatchable that most who’ve heard him once could recognize his sound anywhere. Blogs often attribute that unmistakable quality to his voice, for which enough treatises exist that I’ll save the space here. However, seeing Matsson live, it’s quickly clear that his yearning croon is still the reason he’s owned just about every stage, from intimate KEXP sessions to massive festivals, with not…

On paper, its omission is bewilidering to say the least. (Hell, even the notoriously mercurial Isaac Brock leads Modest Mouse through “Float On” nine shows out of ten.) A near-perfect build-up and climax of the band’s languid R&B rhythm and Brittany Howard’s…

    The music industry is fantastic at hindsight. We’ve obsessed over the spread of online piracy, the death of the CD, then the impact of streams. But every measure of the business model is somehow framed around acquiring records. And it’s about passive consumption. We have to remember, though, that passive consumption is itself really the outlier. Until the dawn of recording, music only existed when you played it. Our current copyright and licensing system was first structured around sheet music. And that world never went away. Precise recordings can give you the experience of…

    26 Aug 2015 | 10:45 am
    “It was acceptable in the 80s…” The standard MIDI DIN cable – that’s the big honkin’ connector you use on most of your MIDI gear – has become the bane of music hardware makers. The problem is, as gear has gotten smaller, the standard DIN connector hasn’t. And that’s a big problem, literally. To add a MIDI port to a device, you need to not only have enough clearance for the connector itself, but the whole around the port and the physical assembly that contains it. Speaking as a hardware maker, that takes up space you can’t even see…

The woman in the front row at the concert was immediately kicked back from Gates’s shoe. The footage seems to suggest that the fan didn’t leave after the confrontation. Gates has not commented yet, but he did make a cryptic statement a few hours afterwards. Kill me,when you see me – it's dat simple – — Kevin Gates (@iamkevingates) August 30, 2015 // His fans and detractors has a varied…

    Wynne Unit Band: It’s Over (Texas Prison Rodeo, 1980, Behind the Walls) Part of the appeal of prison soul albums lies in how a narrative of redemption is built into their very existence. They exist, whether intentionally or not, as rehabilitation projects, where inmates use music as a way of reconnecting with “legitimate” society. Whether that’s all a facade or not, it’s how most prison LPs are set up, this exemplary one out of Texas being no exception. The Guardian published a write-up about Wynne Unit and its musicians back in 2013 but this LP had long been on…

These two both came from my recent Paris trip (Tele-Music is a French library series) and while I didn’t score my main Tele-Music white whale, I wasn’t mad at paying relatively little for each of these. “Oriental Vibrato” is…

    Falling Stones: Come Back To Your Lover (Suriname, 196?, S/T) Of all the records I brought back from Paris, the Falling Stones LP ranks high simply because I marvel at how well this famed group from Surinam nailed the Stax sound. In particular, lead singer Louis Windzak does a mean Otis Redding, especially on this song, an original by the group that easily sounds like it could have been a cover of some Memphis single. Thanks to Sir Shambling’s Deep Soul Heaven, I learned that the reason there’s such a heavy Southern soul influence in Surinam had to do with the importation of…

"Love Crime" was co-written by series composer Brian Reitzell especially for the finale. Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller told TV Guide:I went to NBC and Sky, who are our American and U.K. broadcasters, and said: 'I know the show is canceled... and it's absolutely unheard of for a showrunner to come back to you and ask for more money for a show that has no further revenue potential…
  • Riot Fest Denver day 2: Rancid's 'And Out Come the Wolves' set, Drive Like Jehu, GWAR, more

    30 Aug 2015 | 10:15 am
    by Andrew Sacher GWAR @ Riot Fest Denver 8/29/2015 (photo by @ultra5280) Riot Fest Denver 2015 began on Friday (review, video) and continued Saturday (8/29) with another load of great bands. Actually, they started a few hours earlier this time and had even more great bands, so picking highlights for day 2 was even harder. Run DMC sounded great from what I saw, but I didn't catch enough of them to really write about it. It was nice to see The Damned still doing their thing but given the vibe of the festival I wish they did more fast songs. The heightened crowd reactions for "Anti-Pope" and…
  • La Luz played Bowery Ballroom with EZTV and Scully (pics); playing surprise show TONIGHT at Silent Barn

    30 Aug 2015 | 9:22 am
    photos by Amanda Hatfield La Luz @ Bowery Ballroom 8/29/2015 La Luz usually do a "Soul Train" at shows, dividing the crowd down the middle and have people dance their way down the middle towards the stage. For their biggest NYC show yet, Saturday night (8/29) headlining Bowery Ballroom, they tried to coordinate a "surf train," where fans crowd surfed their way to the stage. It was a little bit awkward -- this crowd was definitely more the dancing kind than crowdsurfers -- but a funny moment in a fun night. La Luz don't rock the boat with their traditional surf rock style, but they show how…

    Photo via @ellenpage on Instagram Coming out as gay early last year at the Human Right’s Campaign’s Time to Thrive conference, actress Ellen Page has since been a staunch LGBTQ activist, and her interview with TIME  is no exception. Discussing “the deep sense of peace” she felt playing a gay character while publicly honest about her own sexuality, Page did not hold back about her feelings on the industry praising her heterosexual peers for playing gay roles. When people are [called] brave in regards to playing LGBTQ people, that’s borderline offensive…I’m never going to…

Taking to Instagram, Jacobs flaunts a new t-shirt design that reads, “themarcjacobs It’s yours to try!” This quote may look familiar because it was the caption of his nude Instagram photo that was meant to post as a direct message.

The monstrous implosion of SFX Entertainment continues this week, with shares of SFXE struggling below $1 and multiple advisory firms downgrading the stock.  The latest pummeling comes from Moody’s Investor Service, which pilloried the EDM-focused company with multiple, near-ruinous downgrades.

We live in a world where many share the belief that content is ‘free,’ while rampant piracy has been significantly curtailed by new legitimate services and business models (like subscription streaming).  But, it just ain’t so. One of the biggest and pervasive myths is that piracy is actually decreasing.  That couldn’t be further to the truth: Cisco forecasts that file-sharing in North America will grow a massive 51% from 2014-2019.

    Baltimore dream-pop duo Beach House have become a force to be reckoned with in college radio. This week their fifth album Depression Cherry was both most added (by a large margin) and saw the highest debut of the week on the charts. Their previous two albums, Teen Dream and Bloom, saw lots of college radio success and paved the way for Depression Cherry to start off with such a strong impact. In 2010 Teen Dream started off with an even stronger first week on the charts than Depression Cherry. The week Teen Dream was most added it also debuted at No. 27, and two weeks later reached No. 1 on…

No, not those gods, but this human three-piece from Seattle brandishing a fresh bit of woozy wha-wha pedals and shrewd rhythms, and offering zero apologies for their forthright grooviness. Stop/Listen is the first track off their sophomore album Pink Noise, and mixes brisk drums with the sultry voices of Astra Elane and Dustin Patterson, as Elane wails the distortion pedal in all the right ways, commanding your body to move. Pink Noise was mixed by Steve Fisk (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Low, Posies) and is…

Featuring male and female Black Francis-eque whisper-singing, No Fun My Head lolls in a wash of muffled, punkish reverb.

    [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.] The instrumentation, performances, and production on Morning Phase augments the lyrical tone without veering into threnody territory that it would have in lesser hands.

    It’s hot now. That good kind of August hot. As I once lived in New Orleans, I do know heat, and the North Shore of Boston is not heat. Here it just sort of teases you a little bit…catching a glimpse of cardinal out of the corner of your eye before it disappears behind a tree. NOLA heat is not subtle….a black iron skillet dropped on a shoeless toe. Nevertheless, who wants to turn on an oven or stovetop in August? And why would you? Close your eyes and reach into the box of tomatoes at any farmer’s market right now and you’ll be right and rewarded. Doubly so if…

    Summer is so fleeting. Time goes faster as we get older. For me, it’s is the smell of just-shucked corn and the sound of whatever those insects are that hum all through the August days; desperate in their final attempts of expression before it’s too late. It’s the way I feel when I head to Vidalias this time of year, and see the fruit and produce that was grown just around the corner and picked this morning. I want to capture it before it’s gone and I’m back to coaxing tenderness and sweetness out of tubers and alliums with low heat as the snow falls. Right…

    When you think of the steel drum, you might picture yourself relaxing on a tropical vacation. But did you know that the steel drum was born out of poverty and a local ban on drums? The steel drum originated in the late 1930s on the island of Trinidad and was played as part of a steel band, a percussion ensemble contrived by lower-class rebellious teens. Learn more about the steel drum’s complex history, development, and current form with our ten fun facts below: The steel drum is a tuned idiophone traditionally made from an oil drum, but today is made of high-quality steel. To make a…

    Misty Copeland captured the world’s attention this summer when she became the first black female principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre. In late August, Copeland will once again be in the headlines when she stars in Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town for a limited engagement at New York’s Lyric Theatre, where she will bring the show’s nearly year-long run to a close. There, she will be joining a different sort of racial history from that of classical ballet. When On the Town debuted towards the end of World War II, its original production featured a mixed-race cast and…
  • Technology and the evolving portrait of the composer

    18 Aug 2015 | 1:30 am
    It’s a cartoon image from my childhood: a man with wild hair, wearing a topcoat, and frantically waving a baton with a deranged look on his face. In fact, this caricature of what a composer should look like was probably inspired by the popular image of Beethoven: moody, distant, a loner… a genius lost in his own world. To some degree or another, this clichéd portrait of a “typical” composer has been in the popular lexicon for many, many years, and has been stamped on composers from Mozart all the way to those in the middle of the 20th century. Stravinsky and his contemporaries seem…

With 76 concerts, running from July to September, of which the vast majority focus on classical music, not only do the events reach a sizeable audience live in London’s Royal Albert Hall, or for the earlier daytime concerts, the Cadogan Hall, but there’s a much bigger audience for the nightly live broadcasts on BBC radio and for the highlights on television.

    The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps, sponsored by the village of Rosemont, Illinois, featured the opening of the finale of Bruckner's Eighth Symphony in its 2015 program, "Game On." Then there's a slightly dizzying segue to "Fêtes," from Debussy's Nocturnes. According to the Drum Corps Repertoire Database, the first drums-corps group to play Bruckner was the Guardians, in 2013; their ambitious young director, Johnathan Doerr, has also programmed Mahler, Elgar, Percy Grainger, Copland, and John Adams.

    Reading yesterday's New York Times, I came across an article that appeared to date from around the year 1930 — the period in which dunderheaded authorities like Daniel Gregory Mason inveighed against the vulgarity of jitterbugging. In the Times piece, Robert Blocker, the dean of the Yale School of Music, explains why jazz is not a priority for his institution. He is quoted as saying: “Our mission is real clear. We train people in the Western canon and in new music.” This is real bad. Jazz is a monumental art form, its major figures among the most original thinkers in…
  • For Nikolaus Lehnhoff

    Alex Ross
    28 Aug 2015 | 9:49 am
    The sad news came yesterday of the death, at the age of seventy-six, of the opera director Nikolaus Lehnhoff. Lavishly cultured and innately musical, Lehnhoff occupied a middle ground between traditional and radical approaches to directing opera. Schooled in that inexact science by Wieland Wagner, among others, he seldom slavishly followed indications in the libretto, nor did he impose a soundbite-ready concept; he tailored his ideas to the particular dimensions of the work. I was able to see a fair number of his productions live: Salome at the Met in 1990 and 1996, Palestrina at the Lincoln…

  • Input Error (The Horrorist remix) – Haujobb

    Oliver Chesler
    25 Aug 2015 | 1:52 pm
    Input Error by Haujobb I am happy to announce a remix I did for the German EBM band Haujobb has been released. The song is called Input Error. It is on the first single from their next album called Blendwerk. The wonderful Sid Lamar (Schwefelgelb) also did a remix. As with many of my remixes I almost like to redo the track. For Input Error I used the underrated Kawai R100 drum machine. The bassline is an Alesis Microbrute. I re-arranged the vocals to be a “more standard” arrangement. I really wanted something that could be played regularly out at a club and also have an 80s Wax…
  • The Horrorist DJ Set and Live at the Bossa Nova Civic Club

    Oliver Chesler
    7 Jul 2015 | 7:50 am
    On Saturday night I DJed and performed a live show in Bushwick, Brooklyn at The Bossa Nova Civic Club. I’ve mentioned “Bossa” a few times. It’s a small place in the middle of what was once nowhere. The nowhere part is changing quickly as Bushwick has become the place to be. I would argue Bossa had a big role in making the area cool. The event was Synthicide which is run by DJ Andi. Synthicide is one of the best events in the NYC area. It’s a mix of EBM, Industrial and straight up techno. Each event features 3 different DJs or live acts. Saturday night Andi herself played, the…
  • Do we see reality as it is?

    Oliver Chesler
    17 Jun 2015 | 5:28 am
    When I was a child I had a TRS-80 Color Computer. I remember pretending the real world around me was made of pixels. I believe humans are ramping up self awareness in a dramatic way in the 21st Century. I love this Ted talk. I believe Dr. Hoffman is on the right path. “Cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman is trying to answer a big question: Do we experience the world as it really is … or as we need it to be? In this ever so slightly mind-blowing talk, he ponders how our minds construct reality for us.” – Ted For more info:

  • Fans document the #QuietestConcert Ever with Serena Ryder in the Bay of Fundy

    31 Aug 2015 | 2:42 am
    At high tide, the ocean swelled in the bay. At low tide, a crew set up a stage, lights and the makings of a big concert. That's where you (and Serena Ryder) came in! In late August, CBC Music took to the Bay of Fundy in Fundy National Park to plot out an ambitious undertaking - we staged a concert on the ocean floor while the tide was out. After months of meticulous planning, we rolled in and set up the concert (very quickly, you can imagine). Another twist? We couldn't make a huge racket in a serene national park. So we set up the concert so that it would broadcast into a thousand wireless…

    Do you ever wonder how you’re faring with your online reach and influence? Maybe you need to stop and take a snapshot of where you stand. I call it your Internet Influence Index (or 3i for short). A 3i is a listing of your current number of friends, followers and other statistics that indicate how well you’re connecting with fans online. It’s a quick measurement of your Internet presence. I refer to it as a snapshot because, if you’re proactive at all online, the numbers will be in constant flux – hopefully in an upward direction. Of course, I need to emphasize…

    20 Jul 2015 | 9:12 pm
    IT WAS A TOUGH LESSON TO LEARN. For decades I’ve been the indie DIY guy. Self-reliance was my guiding principle. It worked. However, something about it was incomplete. The missing piece was facing the fact that I can’t succeed completely on my own – as a musician, a writer, a visual artist, or an actor. And neither can you. To truly thrive as a creative entrepreneur you need support. You need encouragement. You need people to celebrate victories with and share your defeats. You need a team, a family, a network of peers who are on the same challenging journey as you.

  • Music After Life: Guiding Lights

    Robert Carl
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:26 am
    One side of the survivability equation is the caution-to-the-wind embrace of a personal vision, fearless of the consequences, no matter how impractical. The other side thinks outside of the individual and looks at the times.

    Creative work in a time and place of crisis is essential to a community coping with tragedy and can become a necessary and powerful agent of change. If we truly believe that black lives matter, it's essential that we commit to hearing what their voices have to say.

    Some companies advertise the pieces we write for free as new commissions. I vote for an immediate end to this practice. By all means, call it a world premiere by the Next Important Composer of Our Time. Phrase it however you need to make it sound sexy and get butts in seats, but it is not a commission. It is unpaid labor from which others stand to gain.

  • Album Review: ‘Revolving Door,’ Pseudonym

    Peter Lee
    26 Aug 2015 | 4:32 am
    Pseudonym's Revolving Door found its way into my inbox several months ago, where it gestated quietly before I got around to listening to it. What I found when I finally put my headphones on and pressed play was one of the biggest surprises of 2015 - a low-fi, extremely melodic release by a singer-songwriter who has been hiding his light under a bushel for too long. Paul Desjarlais is the genius behind Pseudonym, which, of course, is a pseudonym for his fake band and his fake bandmates, who even have their own fake bio. It's an outlet for Desjarlais, who hasn't released an album of new…
  • Album Review: ‘Crayons & Angels,’ Brandon Schott

    Peter Lee
    24 Aug 2015 | 6:48 am
    "Let's get lost in the sound," says Brandon Schott in his track "Verdugo Park" from Crayons & Angels, his fifth album. And it's a wonderful wall of sound that Schott creates, a soundscape of instruments creating magnificent stories that hearken to an innocent, playful time. Schott's day job is in the music business. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, he obviously knows his way around musical instruments, and he brings it all out in the opening montage, "Dandelion" (the title of his first album after being diagnosed with cancer). He uses a Rhodes piano, toy piano, dulcitone, and…

Brandon was gracious enough to answer a few questions from yours truly in the wake of his fifth new album, Crayons & Angels, available for order at his website. What was the motivation for this album? I did a record called…

    Columbia House, the popular mail-order record club that boasted four, or eight, or 12, or even 13 albums for a paltry sum ranging from a penny to a dollar, is finally going belly up. I'm surprised it lasted this long; perhaps it's just my lack of reading magazines and finding its multi-page spread of albums, but I didn't even know it still existed. The "Spotify of the 80s," as the Verge put it, declared bankruptcy this week after declining sales over the past 19 years. Simply put, people aren't buying CDs, much less albums, cassettes or 8-tracks anymore. I never subscribed to the service -…
  • 13 Truly Bad Lyrics

    Peter Lee
    1 Aug 2015 | 9:06 am
    Picking bad lyrics from pop music is like shooting fish in a barrel. It's too easy. Pop music, in and of itself, is supposed to be about the hook, the melody, the chord progressions - not the lyrics. We leave that to Bob Dylan and Springsteen. I'm sure I'll get lots of additions to this list, but I compiled this list simply based on my six-hour trip to the beach this week. They're not the worst ever, but they're pretty bad. Like I said, this was too easy. Maybe I'll do part 2 based on the ride back home. "Sometimes When We Touch" - Dan Hill. Sometimes when we touch / the honesty's too much…

    We are excited to announce that CJ Hendry is working on another super-cool, exclusive series of hand-drawn images: The Alphabet! Never one to take the easy way out, she has chosen to draw shiny, metallic helium balloons. Drawing anything with just a pen is tough enough - impossible formost of us - but to draw massive photographic images of reflective 3D objects is incredible! But in her typical low-key fashion, CJ Hendry says she decided to create the alphabet series from a set of shiny balloons because she "just likes the mirror effect and the reflection of the balloons, but mostly…
  • Apostle Peter and St. Helen the Martyr Chapel, Paphos - Cyprus

    25 Aug 2015 | 5:00 pm
    We hesitate to use words such as charming or sweet here as they might imply excessive cuteness, but the recently completed tiny chapel on Cyprus does have a welcoming, approachable appearance that made us contemplate tiny, cozy spaces. However, we were also immediately aware that this is sanctuary, not some dwelling for friendly trolls. We were also drawn to reflect on visits to small Greek mountain villages where tiny white churches cling to seemingly inaccessible cliffs. And glancing inside and seeing the gorgeous hanging lighting fixtures, we remembered our visits to stalactite caves on…

At the same time, we were also reminded of how much we love Farca’s elegant work in general. To start with, the Barrancas House in Mexico City had a lot going for it before Farca came along. It is located on a sloped property so that the four levels of the house, from basement all the way to the top, or second, floor, are all in fact on ground level. In addition, the site overlooks a great wooded area with grown trees and greenery. The house had good bones…

    Mesmerizing, intriguing, stunning, elegant. We could not stop staring at this enchanting photographic image of a bubble by Mathieu Missiaen and so we had to have it. The image is called “Bubble” but we keep seeing all sorts of strange worlds in it. This piece has all the hallmarks of an eye-catching conversation piece. It does stand out. It will be noticed in whatever space you’ll hang it. In addition, it has a hypnotizing effect. In its enigmatic core there appears to be an explanation. If you just look at it long enough, you will solve the puzzle. You will figure it out.

The pop superstar trio of Justin Bieber, Diplo and Skillrex sat down with The New York Times this week to talk about their new song “Where Are U Now,” and if you look closely at a few brief frames around the 6:30 mark (below), you may notice that the singer is wearing a subtle piece of retro youth group fashion. That’s right, Biebs is rocking a WWJD bracelet. A quick Google image search reveals that Bieber’s been spotted wearing the church swag before, particularly earlier this summer.

  • What to Do When You’re Overwhelmed by the World

    28 Aug 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Three actions to take. Is anyone else exhausted? I don’t mean the kind of tiredness from long hours at work. Or because your baby was awake at 3 a.m. Or because you were up too late last night watching a House of Cards marathon. That can be part of it, I guess. But what I really mean is that feeling of exhaustion from the barrage of depressing, discouraging—and sometimes downright infuriating—news stories. Planned Parenthood. Ashley Madison. Murdered reporters. The migrant crisis.

    Derek Sivers
    28 Aug 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Internalizing books Wanting to be successful, I’ve always read every book I thought could help. Even if a book had just one useful insight, it was worth the $20 and my time spent reading and thinking. A few years ago, I realized I was forgetting the lessons I’d learned from past books. So I started taking detailed notes while reading, saving every important idea. I wanted to permanently remember what I’d learned, and act on it. I saved these notes as text files and put them on my phone, so I could review them often. Now I also share them on my site at There are over 200…

    If you are a web or API developer, programming code that uses an SQL database, this is for you. I’ve found a very different and useful way to structure code. It’s made such a big difference for me that I had to share it here. How things are Most web development — whether custom or using frameworks like Rails, Django, Laravel, Sinatra, Flask, and Symfony — tends to work the same way: At the core is a database, which is just the storage of data. All intelligence is in Ruby/Python/PHP/JavaScript classes. Why that’s bad These norms have some dangerous implications: Everything must go…

Hey B - A few months ago I was in a really bad place. Really upset ALL the time about the whole situation. Couldn’t think straight. Very reactionary. Wanting to make some big drastic change, just to ease the discomfort of uncertainty — that pain of living with an unknown future. You’re definitely in that place now. So here’s how I got out.

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

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

Earlier this week the pop superstar posted a photo of herself and her dancers (see above) at a J.Cole concert in Los Angeles. Well, now it appears the pair teamed up for a remix of Ms. Jackson’s new single “No Sleeep.” The remix premiered last night on LA’s Real 92.3 radio station and thanks to the power of the internet, you can hear it below. So what do you think of Janet Jackson and J.Cole together? Updated: The original stream was removed from the internet,…

  • Emotional Labor, or being a Human Centered Human

    30 Aug 2015 | 1:39 pm
    Emotional labor is the work that you do for yourself and the people around you that is emotional in nature. It's a flexible concept and one that is incredibly important to user experience design. If you're curious about emotional labor in general, this article by brutereason is a great primer. Your job, no matter what it is, is pervaded with emotional labor - user experience designers are no different. When you're talking to a client, developers, bosses, or potential users, you're performing emotional labor. Creating emotional bonds with the people around you takes work and determination. You…
  • One-Click Deploy of a Meteor App to Heroku

    23 Aug 2015 | 6:20 pm
    If you're building an tool with the hope that people can host it themselves, having a “one click deploy” to Heroku button in your gives prospective users an easy way to test whether your tool would work for them. Luckily, getting one running is easy. I was working on a Meteor project when I experimented with this, so the concepts are specific to that, but should apply to other frameworks. First, add the deploy to Heroku button to your…
  • Digital Silt

    11 Aug 2015 | 4:23 pm
    Digital Human is a podcast put out by the BBC that investigates how humans change and act in the digital world. The last episode of the latest season is about silt. Ephemeral digital content is everywhere. The apparent "just once" nature of Snapchat is just one facet. People don't treat their online content as stuff that sticks around forever - to their own chagrin when it comes up in job interviews, to new friends, etc. Human interactions used to be completely ephemeral, traces of conversations existing only in our heads - media is an attempt at making our collective human knowledge less…

  • Bear Encounter

    4 Aug 2015 | 9:21 am
    Getting to the top of a 45˚ hill after an hour's climb with heavy packs we spotted a small shape on a rock. It's back-lit - but through our binoculars we're trying to figure out whether it's a marmot or a ground squirrel. Our hopes say marmot, but we know in our hearts that it will be a ground squirrel if we get a bit closer. Cassie puts down the binoculars, hands them to me, and then says, loudly and surprisingly "BEAR". On our right a young looking grizzly bear has just crested onto the top of the hill, and it starts ambling towards us. Immediately we do everything right - our arms shoot…

  • The 5 Best Songs We Heard This Week: Sexwitch, Julia Holter

    Tom Hawking

    It’s the last week of August, so it’s the last week before the music industry returns from sunning itself on the beach and gets down to the serious business of trying to sell records again. In the meantime, though, enjoy this lot! Sexwitch — “Helelyos” The band name might be cheesy, but everything else about Sexwitch — a collaboration between Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan, producer Dan Carey, and members of excellent British neo-kosmische types TOY — is great… especially this song, which like all the other tracks on the group’s self-titled…
  • ‘Straight Outta Compton’ and the Politics of Modern Day Minstrelsy

    Tom Hawking
    28 Aug 2015 | 11:33 am
    As I’m sure me and you, your mama and your cousin too, are aware, there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. The press has gone to great lengths to discuss the film’s misogyny, its colorism, and its erasure of women. I’m still slack jawed a week after finding out the film’sdirector F. Gary Gray was the person who taped the 1991 TV segment that ultimately led to Dr. Dre’s assault of Dee Barnes — an incident that, of course, was omitted from Straight Outta Compton. Gray commits a monumental feat in cowardice, and the twist…
  • What It’s Like Working Backstage at the VMAs

    Courtney E. Smith
    28 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    The MTV VMAs are known for their outrageous moments. Sometimes they’re planned, like the Madonna and Britney Spears kiss that Christina Aguilera never got over, and sometimes they aren’t, like Kanye’s “I’mma let your finish” moment that Taylor Swift will never get over. But some of the most telling moments of the show happen off-camera, where the online streams are off-limits and celebrities get real. The audience never sees them. Although the stories get told within a certain segment of the music industry, the average Joe doesn’t hear a peep about them. But I do. I worked…
  • The One Where Phoebe Sang “Smelly Cat” Onstage with Taylor Swift

    Moze Halperin
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:44 am
    If Taylor Swift wanted Stravinsky to conduct The Firebird with her live in Los Angeles, the dead composer would probably gladly disinter himself from his San Michelle grave to join her onstage. For at this point, it seems that with the drop of a name and the booking of a stadium, Swift has the power to bring anyone onstage with her. Yesterday, news circulated that she’d been joined by St. Vincent and Beck at her Tuesday concert. On Monday, it was Ellen DeGeneres. Last night, the guest was even more unexpected, and arguably her most exciting yet: Lisa Kudrow came onstage, and the two…

    A condom becomes much less effective if it is the wrong size, worn on the wrong side, or its tip is not squeezed when worn. It may cause pregnancy or/and sexually-transmitted diseases. “Love Guide” condoms address these issues by introducing a new packaging system for conventional condoms. They come in five packages, each of a distinct diameter, such that holding the packages easily determines the right size. Also, each condom comes in a specially designed case with a rising tip, making it easy to pick the condom from the right side while squeezing the tip at the same time. Love Guide…

The octave key helps all those notes play more easily. It has to do with the positioning of the holes on the horn connected to the octave key and the acoustics of how the saxophone works.

  • Teen Daze Finally Tops An Early Favorite In “Morning Glory”

    Andy Fenstermaker
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:53 pm
    2015 marks five years since Teen Daze first debuted on the music scene with a four-song EP called Beach Dreams. In the years and countless releases (many of them digital singles) since, Teen Daze has flirted with several genres. Early on, Beach Dreams encompassed his style in a very descriptive way, while more recently Jamison (the band’s solo member) has found comfort in electronica. His latest release, Morning World, is a departure from the Lefse Records years back to his earlier roots. Mellow and filled with instrumentation, Morning World presents Teen Daze as a more mature artist,…

    30 years ago today, Coca Cola launched its ill-fated New Coke. While that was a major fiasco, I sat down to determine if, thirty years later, the newly released song of the same name by LA nosie-rock outfit HEALTH would follow suit. I had pretty much discounted HEALTH as somewhat of a fad. Their eponymous debut in 2007 was lauded by many, myself included, despite it being a bit brazen and eccentric (and, at times, somewhat unbearable to anyone over 23). And the remixes that followed were, and still are, truly sublime. Their follow-up, Get Color I largely ignored for whatever reason.
  • Best Album of 2015 So Far: Eternal Death’s New Self-Titled LP

    Andy Fenstermaker
    28 Feb 2015 | 8:07 am
    I see quite a contradiction here. Elin Berlin is the face behind Swedish blog Youth Knows No Pain. In it, for the most part, she seems to maintain a sunny and bright disposition. But things aren’t always as they seem; by night she records under the moniker Eternal Death, a meditative project with Johan Angergård (Acid House Kings, Club 8, The Legends). Eternal Death sounds like a bad 80s hair band containing ugly dudes with big hair and painted faces. Not true: instead Eternal Death poses a equally confounding clash-of-expectations. Elin’s vocals are sweet and somewhat upbeat, albeit not…
  • Hayden Drops New Single, “Hey Love” – New LP out Soon!

    Andy Fenstermaker
    26 Feb 2015 | 7:37 pm
    My love of Hayden’s music goes way back. Back, in fact, twenty years to his sophomore release, Everything I Long For. I’ve always been a fan of his mopey Canadian folk rock. As a twenty-year career will do, his sound has evolved quite drastically. Still with a hint of sadness, modern Hayden tracks are more produced, much cleaner, and with an elevated sophistication that comes with age and experience. “Hey Love”, off his forthcoming 2015 LP, is a quintessential example of this. Though the sadness and longing remain in Hayden’s vocals, he has matured both lyrically and artistically.

The band moved from Chicago to Seattle and landed a spot on the Magic Marker Records roster for their debut LP Songs That You Might Not Like. Around the same time, via the twee-favorite Matinee Records imprint, I discovered Seattle indiepop band Math & Physics Club. Now, what do these two bands have to do with Unlikely Friends and their debut album Solid Gold Cowboy? The Answer: everything! Unlikely Friends is the pairing of D.

    Back in February, Master P made an appearance on Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club show, and now on Wednesday (August 26th) he made another appearance to chop it up with DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God, and Angela Yee. There wasn’t much talk about Lil Wayne in this interview, but the No Limit Forever Records founder did mention at the 23:50 mark that he thinks: “Lil Wayne the best rapper in the world”. You can check out the conversation below. Tunechi also brought out Master P and No Limit during his “Lil Weezyana Fest” in New Orleans on Friday (August 28th)!

If you could not be in attendance, Jay Z’s streaming service TIDAL let anyone with an account watch the full show live as it happened. Personally this was one of the greatest Tunechi concerts I have ever watched and my highlight was seeing a Sqad Up reunion on stage with Tune rapping his verses from the Sqad Up tapes word for word.

  • Pandora & Spotify User Demographics, April 2015 [TABLE]

    David Erickson
    14 Aug 2015 | 7:48 am
    The debate about whether or not Spotify is a threat to Pandora continues, but recent research suggests the latter still has a large lead. Several differences exist between the music streaming platforms’ audiences, including age, loyalty and listening frequency. According to CivicScience polling conducted in April 2015, which focused on active users—those who used one of the streaming platforms “every day,” “a few times a week,” and “a few times a month”—Spotify’s audience skews much younger than Pandora’s. nearly two-thirds of US Spotify users were between the ages of 13…

As the owner of more than a few guitars, my standard response to people who believe that is a tad excessive is: “You can never have enough guitars.” Now I have expert supporting evidence for that stance. In this interview with NPR, Neko Case declares her love for her Fender Jazzmaster guitar. I can confirm that the love is justified. My friend John Kuehn owned one and to this day, it remains the best guitar I’ve ever played. Fretboard Journal has a…

    There’s no stopping the music industry’s digital transformation, based on recent research. According to data from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), digital music revenues worldwide rose nearly 7% last year to hit $6.85 billion, tying physical sales in share for the first time, at 46% each. The remaining 8% was from performance rights and synchronization. Just like in the US, IFPI found that streaming services—made up of subscription and ad-supported streams—were a key driver of global digital music revenues, accounting for 32% of the total, compared…

Preference for AM/FM radio is consistent across age groups, gender, and household income levels, though appears to be higher among females and older consumers. Interestingly, 18-34-year-olds are more likely to first play a CD (15%) than to listen to streaming digital audio services or a digital music collection (10%). Source: Ipsos Read…

    If you’re like me, you’re always tempted to add harmonies to the simplest of melodies whether it’s singing along with others or arranging a song.But don’t overlook the simplicity of unison singing and drones. These are great ways of finding out if your singing is as good as you think!Singing in harmony is quite forgiving. It’s possible to sound reasonably good without being 100% accurate. But when all the singers have to sing exactly the same thing in exactly the same way at exactly the same time, it can reveal how accurate you really are.This is true whether it’s you and a…

They remained mostly immobile throughout their short set, and the audience mimicked their stoicism. Though, what the audience lacked in movement they made up for in screaming…

    Brand new stuff from Beirut. Following their other new track, No No No, the band have given us a video for Gibraltar. Gibraltar finds the band resting their horn sound a little, and amping it up with a killer piano line (perhaps ‘amping it up’ is the wrong choice of words). Trust me – it’s […]

    Something of an 'about time' ukulele review this one. The Epiphone Les Paul Ukulele has been around for a few years now, and although I have played many of them, I just haven't seemed to have one long enough to write a detailed review up.  It must also be said, this instrument was probably the one that was most requested as a review on Got A Ukulele. Now is that time, and I suspect this one will divide opinions.The Epiphone Les Paul ukulele, as the name suggests, is an instrument designed to look like the iconic Gibson Les Paul shape guitar.

It could have seem apt to name their first Joint tour in more than 20 years “Two Legends” however instead they chose a title that spoke to their continued relationship: “Two Friends.” As they embarked on the tour the numbers were fascinating to ponder: both would be…

  • The Evolution of Casino Slot Machine Music

    5 Aug 2015 | 6:46 pm
    In the past, sound merely signaled a reward. Now it’s part of the reward. In the past, you knew you’d won on a slot machine if you heard a cascade of sounds, which signalled some sort of payout. That was basically the only function that the sounds had on a slot machine, back then. The slot machines of today are a far cry from the painted metal boxes of the past, however. These days, slots feature high-definition graphics and video, touchscreen controls, and even a few mechanics appropriated from video games. The sound design has also leapt to never-before-seen levels. “Slot…

Quite the unique geographic contingent, but hey, if it works, don’t fix it.

  • BAILE – Holdin’ (feat. Marie Kim)

    27 Jul 2015 | 9:47 pm
    Keep up with BAILE FACEBOOK | TWITTER | SOUNDCLOUD BAILE has been so consistent with his releases. The producer has continued to evolve from his original remixes that were heavy on the dark ambience into newer territory involving more danceable beats and featured vocalists. Although he’s picked up some new sounds, he’s still remained true to his style, and I really appreciate that. Those use of vocal drones and stacked layers really made BAILE’s music stand out from the rest of the crowd. Take BAILE’s latest single Holdin’ as an example. The song premiered…

    27 Jul 2015 | 9:23 pm
    Sounds from nowhere. Music whispering like the breeze. Lazer guided melodies. From time to time, our friend Agte. Mulder compiles a handful of select shoegaze, dream pop, and post rock songs. The result is the Lazer Guided Melodies podcast series, titled as an homage to the band Spiritualized’s 1992 album of the same name. If you speak Spanish, you’re in luck! Agte. Mulder records his podcasts entirely in Spanish, but if you’re unfamiliar with the language, don’t let that discourage you from listening and enjoying the music. The songs are still English (mostly).

    Many times in the past I've written about the personal reward I receive from publishing the Weekly Music Commentary. Over a period of just a few years I have met a number of good and great musicians. I follow quite a number of them and their career accomplishments closely. I have a short list of artists whom I featured before any album or EP release, and gain internal satisfaction as they create more music and grow to acquire wide acclaim. This week is special to me because I am featuring an entertainer for the second time. This week I chose to feature the multi-talented entertainer Michael…

    Mark RonsonSome may find it hard to believe someone might ask the question above. Trust me, there are quite a few of my readers who will quietly utter those exact words. I must tell you that I hear the question about the identity of a featured artist frequently, even when an extremely popular artist is featured. I understand that I choose to highlight new and/or young artists a great deal, and they have not produced the volume of material or had the opportunity to create the hit song or album. However, I am intrigued by the lack of recognition of someone like Mark Ronson. Why? Because he…
  • Tomorrow Is Another "Day"

    Edward Reid
    16 Aug 2015 | 12:22 pm
    Andra DayOptimistic! I have heard the word used many times throughout my life. Several years ago the Grammy Award-winning vocal and instrumental ensemble Sounds of Blackness used the word as the title of one of their hit songs. The chorus provides the formula for optimistic thinking, “you can win as long as you keep your head to the sky.” As we approach any endeavor, it is important to be realistic, but it might be more important to be optimistic. No one can achieve unless they first dare to dream. Such thinking is of utmost importance for the aspiring music artist. One major reason for…
  • Finding The Worldwide Audience

    Oriana CurlsAs I listened to a wide variety of music this week, I started to wonder what moves us to appreciate a particular artist or style of song. I am no different than most people because I have my favorites. However, it must be more difficult for an artist to find an accepting audience. Years and years of working and practicing in order to become more a proficient artist is necessary, but then one must make the choice of musical genre. There have been several musicians I knew who changed genres and went on to brilliant careers. Sometimes I have even heard of some that changed the way…

    2 Aug 2015 | 12:01 pm
    Tori KellyEvery once in a while I am very impressed with the marketing strategy planned for particular artists. Of course, many people feel that talent is secondary to the brilliant plan to sell a musician and their music.  The reality is that it takes both components to create widespread success. Still, the object is to make people notice the talent, and then give them a reason to like what they are hearing. A term you hear a lot in marketing is – create a buzz. In preparing for this week I wanted to understand that word: buzz. Sure I have heard the buzz of a bee or other insects. I…

  • The Who "Eminence Front" Isolated Keys

    Bobby Owsinski
    28 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    Note the VCS3 synth on top of the organHere's a piece from a song that you've probably been hearing on television commercials a lot lately. It's the isolated keys from The Who's "Eminence Front" from their It's Hard album (the last with drummer Kenny Jones and bassist John Entwistle).The keys are pretty buried in the song (although the sequenced synth carries it), so it's pretty interesting to hear just how intricate they are.1. Listen to how the sequenced synth constantly changes throughout the song in both feel and timbre. This was supplied by Townshend's favorite: the EMS VCS3 (see the…

Not only that, the company continues to provide free updates that always seem to add something useful, like yesterday's 10.2 update.The big deal with 10.2 is that it adds Camel Audio's (which Apple purchased earlier this year) Alchemy synth. This is a synth with a wide range of talents, from creating sounds using samples and different kinds of synthesis, to multiple filters and modulation options.Other than that, Logic Pro X 10.2 provides an easy way to…

    Maybe the robots are finally taking over. Yale computer scientist Donya Quick has developed a program that can create pieces of music that are so close to Johann Sebastian Bach's work that people have trouble telling the difference.She calls the program "Kulitta" and it can learn the music quickly and create new pieces on demand in a matter of seconds.In tests over 100 students judged the pieces to be the work of a human, and even some of the experts were occasionally fooled.Kulitta analyzes the works of a composer then applies the rules it's learned from them when creating a new piece of…

  • State Champion- Don't Leave Home Without My Love

    23 Jul 2015 | 8:04 pm
    State Champion's punked-up country gunk frequently recalls both the Aristotelian pathos of bands like Souled American and Palace Brothers and the character-driven black humor of indie ironists like Camper Van Beethoven and the Supreme Dicks. Mere homage, however, is not State Champion's line. Singer and head honcho Ryan Davis is a sharp, astute lyricist, the kind of songwriter who probably gets tired of people asking him why he doesn't try his hand at short story writing. Indeed, Fantasy Error's depictions of postmasters and county coroners, Dickensian drinkers and "teardrop pushers" are…

Over the course of several months, Ahee waded through more than a hundred song fragments until he reached the bottomless melodies of “I Forgive You” and…

An elongated, circulating current of energy flow marks each stanza expanding in layers and layers of formulaic chaos… Immerse yourself in the cool blues, the dynamic purples, the voltaic vocals, the power-driven guitar licks. Each track is a different microcosm to let your mind explore. Sun shining, rain pouring, wind twirling, they’ve baked up something atmospheric just for you.

Here is what frontman, Pete, had to say about the track: “‘All Nite Girl’ is definitely a bit of a dark song – both lyrically and musically…While this song does not necessarily outline a specific night, the overall story talks a bit about being young and making a connection that felt amazing at the time just to realize that your paths sadly might not cross again; however, I think the song ends with “and you’re in my world” to give some hope…”

    This ‘Fratellis’ article was written by Evie Myers, a GIGsoup contributor It’s difficult to believe that it’s been almost ten years since The Fratellis stormed onto the music scene with Costello Music and possibly one of the catchiest songs of the decade, Chelsea Dagger. The Scottish band have grown in popularity and musical talent since then, and are back with their fourth album Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied.

    This ‘Elderbrook’ article was written by David Lowes, a GIGsoup contributor One of the advantages of reviewing a new artist is that there’s no information on them – nothing to prejudice you (for example, I’d always give Westlife a bad review, even if they came out with a modern day Pet Sounds, simply because they are Westlife). However (my rampant prejudice aside), it’s also a disadvantage – if there’s no information out there, then you’ll get as much information as you can from sources that they perhaps they don’t want you to.

Stroud natives Hot Feet open the night, and after a slightly tentative start it doesn’t take long to win over the crowd with their tantalisingly gutsy folk sound. Frontwoman Marianne Parrish’s gorgeous vocals are hard to pin down – as is the band’s overall sound – and at times she floats above the fingerpicked guitar lines, but elsewhere she roots the music deeply with a…

    Was about three weeks ago when we first heard "It's Not Real" from Hazel English, previously she'd won us over with debut track "Never Going Home" - better late never in the case of "It's Not Real" then eh?The formula stays the same on "It's Not Real" but what Hazel English must know is, with the summer in full flow now - not a great one by any stretch of the imagination but then again we are in sunny boro - there really is no point in switching up the shimmering guitars, blissful vocals, and snappy drum hits. There's no details out there on Hazel English's debut EP, but there's going to be…

    Tame Impala have unveiled the official video for the absolutely epic Currents opening track and lead single "Let It Happen".The video for "Let It Happen" was directed by David Wilson and features hallucinations. No, no, lets get off that whole stoner Tame Impala bandwagon crap now, just watch it. The video's protagonist manages to think that his sandwich is trying to have a bit of a chat with him, and ultimately the videos twist is a bit weird too. On Currents, we found ourselves wondering if it was going to be a bit of a flop after hearing over half the album prior to the release,…

Night School album and it sound rather like he's a step back in time, took a dive through "Deadbeat Summer", and come out on the other side with "Slumlord".Previous track "Annie" and now this "Slumlord" are showing that Neon Indian has embraced summer on VEGA INTL. Night School and this may not actually be true, but with only two tracks to go by, it certainly seems that way. There's a nostalgic summer NY feel to this album, and knowing that Palomo moved to New York from Texas a few years back, the…

    Foals have covered Mark Ronson's "Daffodils" ft Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, and the fact they've upped the tempo, funk, and spacey synths is quite remarkable.The cover was recorded as part of Australian radio station Triple J's Like A Version, in which they ask bands to perform cover versions - pretty straight forward really. It is the increased element of funk which strikes the hardest, and paired with Yannis' typical vocals, Foals turn "Daffodils" from something fairly tame to a heavy jazzfest of epic space age proportion.

    Toronto's Fake Palms make gruff and rasping noise pop in the best way, sounding very similar and potentially more melodic than The Stooges or more currently Viet Cong - that may be why they're claiming a Brian Wilson influence in there too. I think latest song "YTMATLDPH" will vouch for that."YTMATLDPH" sounds harsh, brutalist and all kinds of dirty, but it is Fake Palms' juxtaposition between dirt and melody that make their music so infectious, and they've got somewhat of a chorus on show too. Fake Palms will release their self-titled debut album through Buzz Records on September and…

  • 4 Reasons Boy Bands Are More Successful Than Girl Bands

    20 Aug 2015 | 9:10 am
    Over the years boy bands have typically been more successful than girl bands. It’s not that one is more talented than the other. It really has to do more with a few key factors. Throughout the 90s we had some great all boy groups and girl groups, but as we headed into 2010 the number of girl groups fell rapidly. In fact, as of right now I can’t really think of any really popular female groups here in the US. So why do the boys tend to be more successful and have more followers? 1. More Young Female Fans Boy bands have more success  because there are  more young female fans than…

    A live album is a chance for the band to showcase their ability live. Sadly, there haven’t been as many great live albums since the late Nineties’ because it’s become less popular to deviate from the recorded song’s structure, dropping any lengthy improvisations or between-song talk, amongst the crowd or the members themselves. These are the best of those moments, compiled over the course of over thirty years. 10.

    I find it interesting how easy it is to think a song is about love or something equally ‘bright” when it’s really anything but. Some of the songs we hear are pretty blatant when it comes to what they were about; it’s not too hard to see what Inner Circle’s “Girl, I want to make you sweat…and if you cry out, I’m gonna push it some more” is referring to. Others, however, are not so simple. A lot of the time we don’t listen to the lyrics-we just sing along with the beat. That’s fine. However, some people are distressed when they find out that…

  • Top 18 Underrated 90’s Alternative Rock Albums

    Jamie Coughlan
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:52 am
    The Weird And The Wonderful. The 90’s was a majestic era for rock music. Alternative broke the mainstream, and, for once, there was music on the radio that was both commercially viable and actually of some substance before the wheels came off and the post-grunge of Creed and Nickelback took over. As such it seems predictable that in an era of such wonderful quality, many bands and albums would be overlooked and under rated. Here we will have a look at a host of albums from the era that were either unfairly under rated critically, or never found the commercial audience they deserved.

    Serena Williams will continue her march towards history when the US Open kicks off on Monday. The elusive calendar Grand Slam has not been captured since Steffi Graf swept the major tournaments in 1988. As dominant as Serena has been throughout the first three tournaments, one could argue that the run Graf had was even more impressive, as she only lost a single set in her 21 matches. Even though she might not have as dominant a run as Graf had, Serena has been unmatched over the course of her entire career. Against the current crop of top 100 players in the world, Serena has a win percentage…

    The MTV Video Music Awards turned 30 last year. And while MTV continues to spiral further away from their music, and music video roots as a channel, the network and the VMAs specifically continue to play a major part in the current zeitgeist, and their appetite for music related pop culture moments. The line that separates the relevance of a Snapchat story, from a tweet, from a well written but TLDR article in GQ magazine is thinner than ever. What makes the VMAs continue to standout as a monument of relevancy is their history. Madonna kissing Britney & Christina, Prince showing his ass…

    A Beautiful Mess’ Elsie recently wrote a post in which she talked about the difficulties of being a victim of cyberbullying and naysayers. I barely even realized cyberbullying was still a thing, because I see so many kind comments all over the place (you guys are all so friendly! Thank you, by the way!) I responded to her words with this quote (which I first heard from Brené Brown) in her comment section: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is…

You’re not sick, in fact you can’t be sick. There’s too much to be done. Too much that you refuse to miss out on if you had to check out for a few days. Ignored, you could see this tickle turn into a cough, a sinus thing, or sore throat. But we can stop the story before it begins. Let’s nip this thing in the bud.

  • Album Review: Joss Stone - Water For Your Soul

    Joss Stone has never been afraid to think outside the box. As a blue-eyed soul singer who previously side-stepped peoples expectations by mixing in R&B and hip hop elements  on previous albums and writing solid songs from the heart, it was not a stretch to fathom her writing a hip hop album with a reggae flare.  Water For Your Soul is a significant departure from Joss’ past albums which is not necessarily a bad thing, but may deter some fans. But by recruiting Damian Marley to cowrite songs like “Love Me” and “Wake Up” Joss let us know that she was serious about…

It actually was an interesting evening. A friend of mine invited me to attend a Xylos show, and we helped them as roadies that night. However, unbeknownst to me, my friend was underage…

  • 5 Qualities Ever Singer or Vocalist Needs to Practice

    Michael Musco
    28 Aug 2015 | 1:08 pm
    As a music producer, I am always looking for solid vocals. The main reason is because it can take a track from good to great. Vocals really come in two different categories in my opinion. The first category is singing which can be roughly defined as singing the lyrics to the song. On the other hand, vocalists use their voice almost like an instrument to create different melodies, tones, and musical layers. Ideally it would be great to find someone that can do both, but it is not a deal breaker either way.A lot of times I'll hear some vocals that sound very close but are just not quite right.
  • 6 Reasons Why I Am Not Touring

    Michael Musco
    25 Aug 2015 | 3:49 pm
    Touring is something that can be a very important way to get people interested in your music, and I have a lot of respect for musicians that go and play out. There is nothing that can describe the feeling of playing in front of an audience that is digging what you are doing, and it is something that every musician should do at some point or another. At one point in my life that is all I wanted to do and I think it's very important that musicians get that instinct when creating a new track to think about how a crowd will react to it.I think the thing that unites every musician is the goal of…
  • Free Music, Piracy, File Sharing: A Musicians Perspective

    Michael Musco
    19 Aug 2015 | 12:59 pm
    Let me tell you something, writing about this topic makes me nervous. I don't really even know why but there is kind of weird fear about it. Maybe it's the fear that I will piss someone off but I don't really know.Personally, as a musician, I believe that music has value. It takes time and money to create good music and the idea that it should be free is a pretty silly debate. Of course it shouldn't be free, someone needs to pay for it BUT I don't think that someone is always the music fan.It pisses me off when I see the fans getting the most shit about piracy and free music, and it…
  • Navigating the New Music Industry

    Michael Musco

    The music industry is completely changing forms and evolving. The old way the music business worked is not the way it works anymore. It's obvious. Record sales are down, labels are losing money, and it's clear the system did not kept up with technology. Now we are left with two options.The first option is to look at what is going on right now, cry about it, and wish the internet had never been born. The second option is to embrace it, work with it, and create a better system.Personally I am in favor of the second option. There are already so many opportunities that have emerged in the new…
  • Only 1 Album Released in 2015 has Gone Platinum

    Michael Musco
    17 Aug 2015 | 6:15 am
    In the United States record sales determine whether an album gets Gold, Platinum, or Diamond. An album with sales of 500,000+ is Gold, 1,000,000+ is Platinum, and 10,000,000+ is Diamond. So far, only one album released in 2015 has reached Platinum status.So congratulations to Drake for the If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late album going Platinum. In 2014 there were only two released albums that went Platinum, and they were Taylor Swifts 1989 album, and the Frozen Soundtrack. There were other albums that achieved platinum status in 2014 but they just weren't released that same…

    14 Jul 2015 | 1:38 pm
    I'm going to tell you about a trip when our friend Jack drove the three of us through a long western night; determined to get us all home in one 35 hr go. The first hours were the easiest. No matter how tough or grueling a tour is, I always get a boost when we leave our final hotel. So it's no thing to pass 8 - 12 hours trading playlists on our phones and burning pavement. But at the 16th hour, just barely approaching halfway, that feeling turns into something else. Some new kind of exhaustion. Cause I know the only thing between home and me is time."Why don't you get some sleep? You can…

  • What to Do Before Leaving Your Friends (and Music Students)

    24 Aug 2015 | 8:48 pm
    I’ve become intrigued about leaving the place called home. At what point does the homesickness kick in? My piano student, Kayla, has been with me for years. I’ve never been a big-party kind of girl but I wanted to see my friends and everyone that mattered before I left. “I’ll plan your going away party,” my sister said. “Really?” I said. “I want it by the beach.” Thirty-odd people came, and everything I thought mattered did not matter. The weather, for example– we packed tarps and considered moving the party to Sunday because of the…

    I was about to become homeless in Hong Kong, during my first visit to Asia. My housing agreement didn’t pan out. But then I lost my passport returning from Seattle (where I saw dead people), and turned my backpack inside out for the next few days. If I put the passport by the food in my bag, I might’ve noticed it slipping out– but I couldn’t decide which sugary cereal to get at the rest stop before the bus driver marched us back, so I had nothing to put the passport beside anyways, and remained starved and half asleep on the way home. This morning, my friend David told me to…

Here are some of the highlights to producing my latest event– I had two months to pull this off, in the middle of summer. I didn’t cough blood this time. 1. Something is missing. I used to teach piano in public schools. many musicians were talented and passionate, but they tended to practice in their rooms, alone for hours, so I wanted to create a stage for the everyday musician to share their music with an audience. At the highest level, I needed…

Two weeks before launching my event, someone begged me to stop. It was poison for a girl who was coughing up blood. I’ve thought about slipping to spaces where music is…

  • Why Does Everyone Love Justin Bieber’s What Do You Mean So Much?

    John Cameron
    28 Aug 2015 | 1:29 pm
    The Internet appears to have broken over “What Do You Mean,” a brand-new Justin Bieber track with undeniable tropical house influence. The song hit the airwaves following news that Bieber would be releasing an album largely produced by Skrillex, who worked with him previously on Jack Ü’s “Where Are Ü Now” – which made for confusion throughout the EDM blogosphere as Skrillex did not turn out to be responsible for this latest release. I’ve got a different misconception to dispel, though. This track is mediocre at best, and I’m tired of every…

    We’ve covered lyrics over the last 2 posts (and previously I gave a few brief top tips for song writing). Now it’s time to move onto arrangement proper. Melody I know it’s not part of arrangement, but it’s too important to ignore. Many songwriters take a lyric and a chord sequence or a riff and just try to hammer the 2 together. This can work and may give you a satisfactory song. But too often it results in a song where the melody is a little boring and limited and is only held up by the chords, lyric and arrangement. If you want a better melody, write it before you…

Make Your Opening Line Attention Grabbing It has been said many times (a few of them by me on this blog) that you have SECONDS to grab a listener. If you don’t grab them in those first 5-7 seconds, they will click onto something else. Your first line needs to get their attention; shock them or make them curious. Paint A Picture “Slumped down in a chair, tears streaming down his face” is a lot more effective than, “he was upset”. Don’t talk about people’s feelings; show…
  • Song Writing – Lyrics part 1

    The Big Dog
    8 Aug 2015 | 2:00 am
    I’ve neglected this topic, too much for too long. Today we’re going to start a series of posts on song writing. Some people are very precious about their songs and have major objections to any kind of “rules”. None of what I’m saying here is hard and fast and you will find many exceptions to every bit of advice here. Sometimes because of not knowing better but sometimes because of the artistry of the writer allows them to bend the “rules” to good effect. How to write also depends on what you want to do with the song. If you are writing for yourself or your band…
  • Getting More Media Coverage and Better Gigs

    The Big Dog
    1 Aug 2015 | 2:35 am
    Just a short one today but a goodie nevertheless. Once you get a show, ask the promoter to share their media list with you so that you can promote the gig. Most promoters will be happy to share as it’s in their interest for you to get the gig publicity but if they’re resistant, don’t push. Once you have a media list make sure it’s up to date and add any others that you already know of. Keep separate national media and local lists by region. People in New York really don’t care about your gig in LA. Be a team player. If they want promotional materials (to send to…

    Going viral, sometimes also called “word of mouse”; we’ve all heard of it, but how can we do it? What Does It Mean? As the name suggests it means, spreading like a virus. If one person catches it, they spread it to 10 other who then each spread it to 10 more and soon a million people have it. In this case we want as many people as possible to share your video with as many of their friends as possible. Why Would They Share Yours Rather Than Any One Of A Billion Others? It’s not easy. You have to give them a reason to want to. Here are some tips. Make it funny Ask people…

La banda sacó un par de álbumes en esos primeros años, pero fue el lanzamiento de “Anhedonia” en 2012, donde Wells sintió que la versión moderna de Teramaze comenzó a ser una realidad. Ese tercer álbum fue recibido con elogios por parte de la crítica, al igual que el siguiente de 2014 “Esoteric Symbolism”, que vio como este cuarteto era capaz de hacer una declaración audaz y además hacía flexionar, aún más, sobre su fuerza musical.

    Twenty-four years ago, Geto Boys typified a sound that was to come, releasing Mind Playing Tricks On Me and creating an instant Houston HipHop classicSeparating itself distinctively from other hip hop in the early 90s, the song had lazy, harmonic guitar samples. The slow, blues influence contrasted the often angry, protesting up-tempo nature of a lot of hip hop at the time, and it gave birth to the Houston rap scene. Producer-legend and Houston native DJ Screw soon followed Geto Boys, creating an almost exaggerated version of what had preceded him, playing records at nearly half-speed and…

The soulful tones from TKP’s lead singer and the bluesy vibes as backing set up a serious ‘kick back and chill’ vibe. It’s great to hear a UK group…

  • Deep Purple

    17 Aug 2015 | 8:51 am
    What is it with these classic rock bands these days? Deep Purple is a band with very few popular songs, and not a band that should be playing at 17,000 capacity amphitheaters more than forty years into their career. Don’t get me wrong, Machine Head is an amazing album, but other than that I’m not sure what Deep Purple is good for. Let’s start with the venue: the show was at the Molson Amphitheater (which as I mentioned before is HUGE), a venue that was around four times too big for this show. I’d say there were only around 4,000 people there and throughout the show…

    Oldies who should retire Def Leppard sucked. I wasn’t expecting the same show quality as I would’ve from other classic rock bands that are more established like Aerosmith or even Axl Rose’s newer version of Guns ‘n’ Roses, but I expected way more than what I got, having paid $80 for two tickets up in the back. For the entire show, Joe Elliot (the lead singer) seemed so uninterested in what he was doing that he just stood there and sang the songs as opposed to trying to entertain the crowd while doing so. I also got bored of the show after the band played about…

Over the course of a profanity-laden three hour set (that broke curfew by quite a bit) King Dave, sitting atop his throne of flashing lights, guitars and speaker boxes, seemingly invited me and sixteen thousand other Torontonians into his world for deep cuts, Queen covers and Foos hits.

  • U2 Innocence and Experience Tour

    7 Jul 2015 | 12:09 pm
    Although I’ve been to more concerts in the past twelve months than most people will go to in their entire lives, the one band on my bucket list that I had left to see was the so-called “biggest band in the world”, the one and only U2. They’re one of my favourite bands and this was the first chance I’d had to see them live. All the anticipation was worth it, as the band did not disappoint. As soon as I arrived at my seat in the ACC I got goosebumps from the unbelievable energy in the room. The entire arena was open, meaning that there were people in the seats behind the main stage.

Their two hometown shows in Toronto (June 17 and June 19), at the Air Canada Centre were among the most highly anticipated shows of the tour and the band definitely delivered.   The setlist moved in reverse chronological…

  • Types of Guitars for the Development of Mass Appeal – Cranking Up That Electric Noise

    31 Aug 2015 | 1:01 am
    We had looked into acoustic guitars as one of the two common types of guitars in the popular music landscape. While acoustics can be played conveniently everywhere in unplugged and intimate settings, electric guitars (as the name suggests) requires amplification, electrical signals and related process to produce a loud sound. The loud sound can often be heard in hard rock and heavy metal music that usually involves manipulated distortion and reverberation. Although electric guitars were originally designed to serve jazz guitarists in the Big Band era, they have become a staple of any…
  • Develop Your Valuable Instrument – How to Find Your Vocal Range

    24 Aug 2015 | 1:01 am
    A vocal range can simply be understood as the span between the lowest and the highest notes. This leads to variation of pitches and classification of different types of singing voice. Classification of singing voice is very essential in the opera and musical world since the tone, pitches, and variation of notes from a soprano (highest female voice) or a tenor (highest male voice) may convey commanding tones, pitches and dramatic expressions in their roles. Whether a singer belongs to a mezzo soprano, baritone or other classification is not really important in the popular music world, but…

    During off seasons, professional athletes go through regimented training in order to develop and strengthen their core muscles so that they can improve speed and agility for efficient performances and increased chances of winning any tournaments. While professional singers usually do not compete with other singers, they also need to go through routines of vocal warm up exercises that can prepare them for performing challenging songs and singing for many hours during extended touring. In each warm up routine, singers should minimally focus on relaxing the body, practicing the breath management…
  • Scream and Whisper at These Ribbon Microphones

    18 May 2015 | 6:01 pm
    Many singers/musicians and recording studios can settle with a bunch of dynamic microphones for their affordability and some condensers for their ability to capture certain details. On the other hand, ribbon microphones was the standard mics used in broadcasting and recording studios in the 1920s to 1950s due to their high quality sound. Appearance wise, they used to be bulky, but modern designs have made ribbons smaller in different shapes and can look like mini tubes, laser pointers, or electric shavers. In terms of sound output, ribbons can pick up sounds from two directions and many can…

         Pop punk is exactly what it says it is, a hybrid of the attitude of 70's punk (sometimes it's actual sound as well), and pop. The most popular groups of this genre are Green Day and Blink-182, but there are many to choose from.     The British group "A" recorded together from 1996 to 2005 and had some success in their home country as well as  Germany, but little elsewhere. Their most popular album was "Hi-Fi Serious" in 2002 with it's top 10 hit UK hit, "Nothing"    They were made up of twin brothers Jason (vocals) and Adam Perry…

    Gospel music has always informed popular music.  Country, Rock and Roll, R&B and Soul all have been influenced at some level by Gospel. It's not surprising then that most of the singers of those genres came out of the church. Some, like Johnny Cash and Elvis were influenced by the songs of the church, and at least in Presley's case, it's stage manner as well. Others like Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin were actually singing gospel music before switching to more secular material. George "Ooppee" McCurn spent the 1950's as a member of two of gospel's greatest groups;…

In preparation for the show I listen to a LOT of music, and being the kind of person that I am, began listening to music by the label instead of the artists. This led me to A&M Records.

It provides the perfect amount of reverb to someone who is wanting to fatten the sound of an imperfect instrument(s) and it's bigger than a bathroom shower.      Not many can say however that their efforts would soon lead to a record label that would be sold for 500 million dollars.      It started in a garage with someone attempting to mimic the emotions of a…

After all, many imagine a studio as having a lot of electronics and cables. However, in reality, building a home recording studio isn’t as hard as you think it is.

More so, it made me realize how hating is “normal” now, specially in the music industry. Inspired by the ad, I took a look at some of music’s own successful, yet much hated personalities.

    In 1965 British rock group, The Who released a song called My Generation. Apart from its claim to fame as a rock anthem it also contains the most instantly recognizable bass guitar solo in rock and roll. This iconic solo by John Entwistle is typical of the bass solo modeled on similar solo breaks played on double bass and bass guitar in jazz music. This type of bass guitar solo is in the form of a question and answer sequence often found in blues music. The Who’s solo also imitates jazz bass solos in that it is played without other instruments behind it. In jazz such solos are played…
  • Brief History of Bass Guitar

    1 Aug 2015 | 10:28 am
    Ask most people who created the modern electric bass guitar and they will tell you it was Leo Fender. However, there were at least five other prototypes resembling the now well-known design of the modern bass, each created well before Fender introduced the world to the Precision bass in 1951. The modern bass is a direct descendant of the double bass, which dates back to the 17th century.

  • Basic Guitar Chord

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:59 am
    The basic guitar chords you’ll learn on this post form the foundation of today’s guitar playing. I call them beginner guitar chords, but they are used everyday by beginners as well as advanced players and in all styles of music. Beginners should practice these chords until they have memorized them and are able to switch between them fluidly. Open chords (some call them folk chords) are usually the first thing a beginning guitar player learns.  This doesn’t mean that these beginner guitar chords are very easy: learning to get those left hand fingers work together and…

    I came across "Calendar" by Treelines earlier today while listening to an Indie-Rock/Alternative Compilation made by Alexrainbird, and I haven't been able to get this song out of my head since. To be honest, it wasn't even fair. When the song opened with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica I was already hooked. By the time the stomping and clapping started, I was already opening my wallet.

    Heard this soulful tune playing at the end of the latest episode of Power and it definitely grew on me quickly. It started off pretty slow and subtle, but as the song went on I found myself more and more enthralled with this unbelievably talented blues musician. "Your Love Will Blow Me Away When Your Heart Aches" won't be winning any awards for shortest song title any time soon, but if Son

Since unbeknownst to me, Jim James (lead singer of MMJ) apparently messed around a did a solo project a few years back. So now it looks like I have to go and listen to his Regions of Light and Sound of God album,

    Perfect tune for a Throwback Thursday here. I just got done watching Southland Tales and I gotta ask, why has no one ever told me about this film? I've never heard of it before, but it is a B-listers wet dream. I'll be honest, one of the more entertaining parts of the film is seeing all of the familiar actors who show up in every scene, and you're just kind of sitting there the whole movie
