    Finding the best headphones for metal is dependant entirely on which type of music you listen to! This is because there are so many subgenres which can easily complicate things. It’s actually a fact that this genre is one that regularly falls victim to some hasty assumptions. While we can agree that this music can be quite intense, it doesn’t mean that the listener enjoys screaming for no reason and worships death! This is exactly what most people believe. This genre of music is actually incredibly beautiful and you can only realise that through the skill, technique and intensity used to…

    I got my first guitar for Christmas when I was in high school. It was an acoustic Fender, and I loved it. I played it every day until I had blisters on my fingers and until it was time to go back to school, when my guitar took up residence in the corner of my bedroom for a very, very long time. I remember looking at it from my computer, where I was slaving away on homework, thinking that one day I would learn to play that dusty thing. I just never got around to it.Until I did. Life events and my viewing of and subsequent falling in love with the soundtrack of the movie Darjeeling Limited gave…

    If you’re in your late 20’s or early 30’s, then you may remember a short-lived television series called The State.  It was an offbeat sketch comedy series on MTV that debuted the comedic talents of a lot of today’s funniest stars.  Kerry Kinney, Robert Ben Garant, and Thomas Lennon went on to create and star in the cult hit Comedy Central series Reno 911, while the rest of the cast all went on to bigger and better things.  Those other folks include David Wain, Michael Ian Black, and Michael Showalter, three very funny guys who have collaborated on several projects…

    Folks, it’s the year 2015, and in the midst of the ever-expanding comic book movie phenomenon, there’s already a bit of an equality problem.  Sure, we’ve been treated to Marvel’s impressive slate of great films, but there’s a serious over-population of white males.  What we need are people of color and women to really set this thing off.  Marvel has noticed this as well, and soon we’ll get a Black Panther movie with Chadwick Boseman, and a Captain Marvel film which may or may not star Emily Blunt.  Either way, it is a step in the right direction.

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

    During a show at Melbourne’s 170 Russell last night, FKA Twigs debuted the first new material she’s shared since the release of LP1. The track is apparently called “Figure 8″ according to the uploader, and it’s a wispy thread of a song that reaches some moments of dissonance unlike anything she’s put out before (or maybe that’s just the venue’s sound setup coming through). Maybe we’re in store for an EP3 soon? Check it out below. Read More...

    Full disclosure: I tend to hate covers. If you’re going to cover a song, make it really different, make it unusual, or don’t record it at all. It can, however, be interesting to listen to someone genre-bend a track and transform it from pop R&B into something that anyone listening to classic rock radio wouldn’t mind hearing during their morning commute. Enter Hozier, Irish troubadour and unlikely pop sensation who we’ve heard cover the Arctic Monkeys in the past, a band that is definitely a bit more in-line with his aesthetic than Ariana Grande’s massive…
  • It Sure Seems Like Neil Young’s Pono Player Is Bullshit

    Last year, Neil Young launched a Kickstarter campaign to create a new digital music player called Pono, the idea being that it would serve as a high-quality alternative to the MP3s that he felt had degraded sound quality and fucked up the way everyone heard music. Young raised more than six million dollars on the campaign, exceeding his goal many times over. And now you can buy a Pono player for a cool $400, and you can pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 for a whole lot of classic-rock albums at the Pono store. But does Pono actually offer an audible upgrade over what the…

    Icy Swedish electronic band Múm have shared a video for “Slow Down,” a track off of their 2013 album Smilewound. The video is an experimental, impressionistic look at the opposing forces of “elemental man” and “elemental woman,” which is what directors F.D. Cristian and Elma Dögg Steingrímsdóttir call the two main characters that appear. “Essentially what we ended up with was a man and a woman each caught in a netherworld, each seeking warmth, surrounding an urban interior scene of people who are a little bored, distracted and maybe looking for…

    Sedona, Arizona native Brandon Decker comes up with some interesting sounds on this, his latest release, Patsy.  Issued under the simple moniker of “Decker”, he unleashes nine songs of varying styles and sounds – a mixture of neo-folk, inflections of gospel and psychedelia.  Some very deft guitar playing, powerful arrangements and an excellent production gives this a certain something that works. The standout track, “Cellars” has an ebb-and-flow that at moments reminds me of the better parts off Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon (use of Hammond…

    The third single from Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s Singer’s Grave A Sea of Tongues, out on Drag City and available on iTunes this week, is a deceptive study in mirrors and reverse images, of expectations from performers, and of dialogues both spoken and unspoken. It also happens to be one of the most subtly spoken commentaries on the state of the A/B-sided single, in form concrete, since Bedhead’s “Lepidoptera”/”Leper” 10-inch EP hit stores some 17 years ago. You see, there’s two songs and two definitive sides on Will Oldham’s new record and, like Singer’s…

    It seems I keep picking Boston bands even when I don’t know I’m doing it. I had the slightest tickle of a memory at the band name Dumptruck – they were based in my hometown and dissolved amidst one of the crappiest legal B.S. stories I’ve ever heard when I was in my early teens – but I don’t think I ever really listened to them. The main reason I pulled this record out of the stacks was, as usual, the lively discussion and debate found on the little white labels stuck to the cover. As with many of the bands I’ve covered in this series, Dumptruck has…

  • OSCiLLOT is a $99 Virtual Modular Rig for Ableton Live – No Cables Needed

    Peter Kirn
    29 Jan 2015 | 10:29 am
    The renaissance in modular synthesis has sent a strong message. Open-ended sound design, made by connecting sonic capabilities, can inspire musicians’ imagination. Now, part of the joy of racks of modular gear is the chance to feel these connections in your hand – plugging cables, turning knobs. But that doesn’t mean that the required hardware is always the most convenient or accessible way to work. Why not have the same sorts of powers in your laptop, too? And why not work in an environment that is itself already modular? And why not choose between using just software or…
  • BomeBox Lets You Connect MIDI, and Transform It, Any Way You Want

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

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

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

But if you feel dizzy after all this tumbling backwards in time, let us take you on a ride back into the future. It’s the reason we’re in Berlin and not Anaheim this week, and I think you’ll enjoy it. A lot.

    Serious question: How did this article get printed in The Atlantic? Of all the Blink-182 think pieces that came out over the last few days (Grantland's is pretty good), this one takes the cake as the strangest. The truly gutting thing about the situation is that—say it aint so—we might be witnessing the break-up of one of the greatest gay love stories in American culture. Okay, kidding. Tom Delonge, Mark Hoppus, and Travis Barker are not, as far as the public knows, gay. All of them have been married to women. But there have definitely been times when they pretended to be something other…

    An anonymous source has spilled the tea about Katy Perry’s halftime performance at Sunday’s Superbowl. The insider told the Associated Press that Missy Elliott will be hitting the stage with the “Fireworks” singer. At a press conference yesterday (Jan. 29), Perry dropped a hint that an “old school” hip-hop act would be making a guest appearance but would not reveal who. “When you hear the first ring of the chord I think jaws will drop and faces will melt,” she said. Lenny Kravitz is set to perform alongside Perry as well. The last time Missy…

  • LITTLE BEN AND THE CHEERS: DON’T MAKE HIM BEG

    O-Dub
    29 Jan 2015 | 1:23 pm
    Little Ben and the Cheers: Beggar of Love (Rush, 1968, 7″) Soul ballad out of Chicago. One of my favorite “new arrivals” from 2013/14 (I think I may have bought this in MN but at this point, I don’t remember). I’m guessing this was originally on the Laredo label in ’68 and Rush was a 2nd issue (though I’m not positive there). Little Ben and the Cheers had a short-lived (3-4 years?) recording career, having begun on the Penny imprint (of Nickel and Penny fame) and “Beggar of Love” was likely their biggest single, especially since it…

    27 Jan 2015 | 12:09 pm
    Joe Quijano and His Fantastic Conjunto Cachana: A Barrio Obrero (Cesta, 196?, The World’s Most Exciting Latin American Orchestra and Revue) Maybe this is just me but I feel like Quijano never gets enough credit for leading a killer Latin band out of New York in the 1960s. Maybe it’s because he was never on powerhouse labels like Fania or Tico, preferring to go his own route with his own label, Cesta. Regardless, his output holds its own against the Fanias, the Cotiques, et. al. Sleep not. 365 Days of Soul, #27

    O-Dub
    26 Jan 2015 | 11:50 am
    William Bell: I’ll Show You (Stax, 1963, 7″) Memphis soul. Nothing by Bell is going to top “I Forgot To Be Your Lover” but “I’ll Show You” comes in a close second. I first heard this on the Complete Stax/Volt anthology and out of 100+ songs, it was one of the few that I repeatedly came back to again and again. The guitars…the guitars… 365 Days of Soul, #26
  • DESTINATION UNLIMITED: TRUE SOUL

    O-Dub
    25 Jan 2015 | 6:27 am
    Destination Unlimited: It’s Gonna Be Alright (True Soul, 1978, Right Track ) Soul/funk album out of Arkansas(?). Was this the only full-length ever released on True Soul? The label’s best-known for a series of funk 7″s from the ’70s, including by Thomas East, and Now-Again created a two volume set from their releases. In any case, Destination Unlimited feels a bit left-field for the label, possibly because their album dropped considerably later than most of the singles did. Still a great sound though, especially on this slow burning instrumental. 365 Days of Soul, #25

Regarding the overwhelming resolution she felt to make the album, she said, "You feel like you belong to another power. It's not yours. It's like the universal heartbreak energy current...that is taking you hostage." The singer explained that the album was largely…

It was full of glimmering sounds -- bowed vibraphone, pretty piano chords -- with, now and then, something staticky or sprockety from Mr. Stevens's electronics. For each segment --…

Generally speaking, an outsider artist is one with little or no formal art education; and indeed a casual poll of select galleries here uncovered few—erm, actually no—Yale M.F.A. graduates.

This seems to be the post-aughts version of a “band,” so even doting on the possible advantages of forming an actual band in the first place seems not only quaint, but pointless if the subsequent album is good, and this one is. Californian Corso has been making mattress music for a few years now, but this is his proper debut full-length, and it showcases a seemingly…

  • The Full Transcript Of Zoe Keating's Conversation With YouTube Rep

    Bruce Houghton
    29 Jan 2015 | 11:06 am
    No music industry story has gotten more play in the last week than Zoe Keating's struggle with YouTube. After the independent musician shared her conversation with YouTube over a new agreement that would keep her from monetizing her content if she did not agree to new terms that included involvement in YouTube's Music Key paid service, a compant spokesperson called Keating's concerns "patently false." Patently, as Keating points out means "clear and without doubt". "Either someone is not telling the truth or the very nice rep I have been negotiating with, for a year, is patently unclear,"…

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

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

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

    George Howard
    24 Nov 2014 | 5:53 pm
    [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. It is as exciting to hear today as it was when released in 1956. If you’re…
  • 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…

  • Sospiri’s Jenny Forsyth on voice and song

    Helena Palmer
    29 Jan 2015 | 3:30 am
    Throughout the month, we’ve been examining the myriad aspects of the human voice. But who better to discuss it than a singer herself? We asked Jenny Forsyth, member of the Sospiri choir in Oxford, what it takes to be part of a successful choir. Which vocal part do you sing in the choir? I sing soprano – usually first soprano if the parts split, but I’ll sing second if I need to. For how long have you been singing? I started singing in the training choir of the Farnham Youth Choir, in Surrey, when I was seven. Then I moved up through the junior choir when I was about 10 years…
  • The inspiration of Alice in Wonderland: 150 years on

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

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

    VictoriaD
    22 Jan 2015 | 3:30 am
    In late 2014, one particular video of a singer became immensely popular on Facebook. At first I thought my perception of its popularity might be skewed; I’m a singer, and have many friends who are singers, so there’s probably some selection bias in my sampling of popular posts on social media. But eventually I actually clicked on one of the many postings of the video on my feed, and with its 7.4 million views, it seemed likely that it was more than just my singer friends who had been watching it: Overtone singing, defined in Grove Music Online as “A vocal style in which a single…

    Grove Music Online presents this multi-part series by Don Harrán, Artur Rubinstein Professor Emeritus of Musicology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, on the life of Jewish musician Salamone Rossi on the anniversary of his birth in 1570.

Previous installments include “Salamone Rossi, Jewish musician in Renaissance Mantua” and “Salamone Rossi as a Jew among Jews”. As a Jewish musician working for the…

  • Super Bowl halftime shows: the best and worst

    30 Jan 2015 | 5:00 am
    The Super Bowl halftime show has become almost as much of an event as the game itself. Sometimes, as was the case with Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson's nipple at Super Bowl XXXVIII, the show overshadows the game. There's also this constant weird debate about whether or not the acts chosen appeal to "football fans," as if it's impossible to be a fan of both Marshawn Lynch and Katy Perry. Anyway, here are some of the best, worst and weirdest halftime shows from Super Bowls past. LISTEN audio Listen to our Pop 40 stream
  • Ghost writers: indie goes pop

    30 Jan 2015 | 4:55 am
    Despite the romanticization of being an indie rocker, life is pretty tough making music for the minority. There are tour vans to fuel, gear to fix, and hydro bills to pay even when you're on the road. Some musicians are perfectly comfortable living a balanced life of holding some sort of day job and moonlighting as a musician. But some have figured out a better way of making ends meet: pop music! My association with the pop industry makes me a little biased, but there's something really wonderful about a well crafted pop song, no matter to what musical clique you adhere. Above, we take a…

With a little luck, that groundswell will turn into a tidal wave of adoring fans.   CBC Music brought the band to Toronto for a session that was billed as a "secret show," where music fans had no idea who they were about to see perform. All they knew was the band in question was Canada's next big thing — no pressure on CTZNSHP to hit it out of the park. The band delivered a tight performance…

While we're all looking forward to the game — a game in which the balls will undoubtedly be inflated to the prescribed 12.5 to 13.5 pounds per square inch — but it also got us thinking, who would win if the two cities went head-to-head in the Super Bowl of popular music? Our best guess is in the gallery above.

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

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

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

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

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

    The lead character in the new Nischay Parekh video is the 52 Hertz Whale. It is a whale belonging to an unidentified species whose call is pitched much higher than that of any other whale species. This makes it the loneliest whale in the world. “I read about the 52 hertz whale and it just stuck with me,” says illustrator/animator Nisha Vasudevan, who has displayed a distinct affinity for unfortunate monsters in her previous work. “I felt so sad that he/she is lonely. I personified him/her in my head a lot and really wanted to do a story about him. I actually went a bit nuts…

    Rob Fields
    29 Jan 2015 | 9:15 am
      A few weeks ago here I shared the first of my lists for the most anticipated African diaspora films for 2015. Featured was the French coming-of-age narrative film Girlhood, an already much-talked about examination of a young Black girl living on the outskirts of Paris and her quest for a better life away from her abusive home situation. In that previous write-up, my fear was that Girlhood would be a misguided outsider’s view, with the writer/director being a White woman, of the problems a young Black girl faces in a city that is continuously unsupportive of Black lives –…

    With the flurry of historically-based films dominating the cinematic landscape it  is difficult to find one that does not rely on overwrought drama or huge stars to push it to success.   Yet with Timbuktu, the long-awaited new film from Mauritanian director Abderrahmane Sissako, we have an equally touching and beautifully filmed story about injustice and the life-changing choices people are forced to make when their world suddenly changes for the worst. Sissako returns to Mali for his first feature film since 2006’s Bamako, which also serves as the director’s best-known film.  In…
  • What Follows? The State of Black Collectivity in the Year of the Sheep

    Rob Fields
    12 Jan 2015 | 8:20 pm
    Here we are at the start of the Year of the Sheep, and may we no longer be martyrs to our own following. In 1977, filmmaker Charles Burnett, wrote and directed his masterpiece Killer of Sheep. The film depicts a black working class family based in Watts, Los Angeles, whose patriarch works at a factory, slaughtering sheep for money. In the uncanny zone where the stoic meets the sensual, the plot unfolds, almost but not quite romanticizing a kind of defeatism, the opposite of the glorification of ghetto fabulous heroism that most Blaxploitation era films achieve. And he made the entire work…

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

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

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

    In a way, this review is not fair, for in my description of the songs of Andy Reed, Keith Klingensmith and Chris Richards - i.e., The Legal Matters - I could easily evoke the name of practically every influential power pop artist. This is not to say that the songs on the group's self-titled debut are derivative; instead, each song is so instantly accessible you swear you must have heard it before, and you find yourself searching your internal power pop catalog for the right reference. And sometimes, the influences are apparent; the intro to "Stubborn" sounds like Girlfriend"-era Matthew…

The movie tells the story of the 40 days Christ spent in the desert before beginning his ministry. McGregor was asked that because his “portrayal is of him as a man, not a deity,” how he thinks religious audiences will react. I can’t imagine any issue with it, because there’s never a moment that he’s uncertain of his faith. I played him as the son of God and a man who is in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights to meditate on his path,…

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

So instead of airing the first Saturday of the month like usually it aired on Dec. 31st accompanying everyone on their new years celebrations.

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

    Simon
    28 Jan 2015 | 8:48 pm
    Note: This post was originally taken from a conversation thread a year ago. I stumbled across it in my 'to write about' folder, and with some minor tweaks, here it is. Forgive the style, I was in a Chomsky mood at the time. There's a post that accomponies this that has some quick thoughts on geeks and media. Geekdom is interesting because there's no set definition of the word geek, so it's easy to apply to any large category of people that don't fit whatever the norm is, and whoever society wants to outcast at the time. Most popularly geeks are people who are outliers in school / college, and…

Forgive the style, I was in a Chomsky mood at the time. There's a post that accomponies this that has some quick thoughts on geek culture in general - here that is.

  • A Study in Ghost Themes (part 1)

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

    Simon
    11 Jan 2015 | 7:01 pm
    Ray Kurzweil is a smart person who's clearly led his chosen field - and, by extension, human-artificial intelligence - into a new era. In his most recent book How To Create a Mind, he talks extensively about the evolution of Intelligence, with some flowery words convinces the reader that AI is possible, likely, desirable, and a natural progression of evolution. But not once does he broach the cultural or societal consequences of creating enhanced human intelligence. From a philosophical perspective I've pretty much always felt the way he does about free will, identity, consciousness. I'm a…

    Shane Barnes
    30 Jan 2015 | 7:47 am
    Big Sean dropped a welcome surprise on the Internet last night: “Blessings,” a skulking track featuring Drake, complete with stormy sky visuals that recall the title of his upcoming album, Dark Skies Paradise. It’s not coincidental that this song, which is undoubtedly influenced by the doomsday aesthetic of Yeezus, comes paired with a remix featuring Kanye West. His verse is of typical West-ian genius, mentioning his condom size, Snapchat, C-3PO, Montessori, and his home gym. The kicker is that the song is about how Sean, Drake, and Kanye have all worked their asses off to…
  • Rivers Cuomo’s ‘DeTour’ Fox Sitcom Ordered to Pilot

    Jillian Mapes
    30 Jan 2015 | 7:04 am
    As suspected based on its put-pilot order back in August, Fox has ordered the pilot for Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo’s semi-autobiographical sitcom, DeTour. The series will be executive produced by Cuomo, among others, and written by Psych creator Steve Franks. As Flavorwire detailed in length back in August, Cuomo’s unique life in rock’n’roll and academia seems ripe for exploration. At the height of Weezer’s initial fame in 1995, a mid-twenties Cuomo enrolled at Harvard, where he studied on and off for 11 years before graduating with a Bachelor’s in…

At a press conference Thursday, Perry teased another guest in addition to Kravitz, saying only to expect an “old school” female singer. “When you hear the first ring of the chord,” Perry added, “I think jaws will drop and faces will melt.” Still, if you find yourself scratching your head over this match-up, keep in mind that Elliott appeared on a…

A few years ago a friend of mine turned me on to the band Dengue Fever. Been a fan ever since.Recently while searching YouTube for any video of the old Connie Francis track "Don't Ever Leave Me" written by Ellie Greenwch, I found this band called Cocktail Slippers. Their version was released in 2009 and totally updates the original bringing the song into the 21st century with a sassy, electric, rock n roll edge it truly deserves.

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

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

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

This album is beautiful, poignant and not unlike Wisconsin's own Bon Iver. Every song is decent and many are great. I love the heartsick on Cavalier when he sings, "I remember my first love".

  • Tove Styrke – Ego

    Riley Beggin
    30 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    While Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are considered the success stories of American Idol, Sweden has us beat with Tove Styrke. She made it to the top three of Swedish Idol in 2009, and has undergone a major rebranding into an internet pop artist worth jamming to. She wooed us with the release of her Borderline EP last November, and followed up just last week with a brand new single, “Ego.” Her voice could still be considered pretty bubblegum-y, but it clicks impossibly well with the reggae-influenced production and table-danceable chorus. Give it a listen.
  • Single Serving: All We Are – Stone

    Matthew Hickey
    29 Jan 2015 | 9:43 am
    Liverpool-based All We Are describe themselves on Facebook as “The Bee Gees on diazepam” – which makes sense when you take a listen to tracks like single “Keep Me Alive” (which you can stream below). But their latest single, “Stone,” is something else entirely. It’s vast, sprawling psychedelic terrain covered with lakes of echoing reverb and sparse, glistening guitar. I can’t imagine this won’t peak your interest. You can pre-order their self-titled debut now from Domino and score a bonus 7″ with two exclusive tracks.
  • Home Bar: A Bittersweet Affair

    Jeffrey Levy
    28 Jan 2015 | 8:59 pm
    Leave it to the Italians to popularize a beverage that’s intended to increase the appetite and/or aid with digestion. Bitter herbs stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting stomach acid and digestive enzyme production. Amaro is the Italian word for “bitter,” and the taste can vary greatly — from intensely bitter to herbaceous to bitter-sweet and syrupy. Alcohol content by volume (ABV) also varies, from 11-40%. Many of the recipes that feature amaro date back centuries and were created by monks or pharmacists. Today, I’m excited to…

It’s from his forthcoming debut Jerk At The End of the Line which drops on March 30th. You can also take a listen to his previously released cut “Cadillac Girl.” Hat tip to Mark from yvynyl.
  • Single Serving: Faith Healer – Again

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

    30 Jan 2015 | 7:49 am
    Daniel Danger created this parody print paying homage to the poster company MONDO and their loyal fans. The image is a knock on the iconic cover of Uncanny X-Men #141 from the early 80’s. In that issue which takes place in a dystopian future, the Sentinels control the United States, and have hunted mutants or placed them in camps or murdered them. Kitty Pryde’s mind is sent back in time to her younger self and she attempts to stop this horrible future from happening. Here is what Daniel had to say about the fun print: “Lets assume internet message boards are Sentinels, and uh, rob is…

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

One of the screws on my sax broke and my neck piece moves around but I can still play normally like I used to. It’s as if no screws are tightening the neck piece. My question is will this affect my sound? -Miguel Neal: Short answer: yes. Longer answer has to do with understanding what both of those screws does. One of those screws tightens the connection with the neck. The other does…

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

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

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

    What would New Orleans be like without music? A New Orleans with only silence instead of street performers, live music clubs, marching bands, jazz funerals, Mardi Gras Indians and restaurants. Wow. Most of the protests against the ridiculous existing noise ordinance consist of musician and music fans bombarding City Hall or the Council Chambers with signage, musicians and brass bands. How about using silence as a protest tool?

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

Now she has a full-length on the way, due via Rough Trade later this year. “Sea Creatures” — the new LP preview — is a cut that arrived in solo-acoustic form last year, but now it’s even more affecting as a midtempo swoon, a beautiful piece of gloaming akin to some of her neighbors to the north.

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

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

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

  • Moonbabies to Release First LP in 7 Years

    Andy Fenstermaker
    29 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    A few weeks back, I grabbed “24” off a recent double single by Moonbabies for airplay on my radio show. Now the duo has announced their first new LP, to be called Wizards On The Beach, in seven years. The new LP is plush with melodic instrumentation and harmonic vocals. Blending classic pop and dance sensibilities, Moonbabies explore a dreamy pop sound on par with fellow Swedish artists like Fredrik and Icelandic musicians like Sunbear and Sin Fang. Songs siding on more subtlety, like “Raindrops” hint of danish artists like Mew and Oh No Ono while holding onto a…
  • Cock & Swan Drop New Single “PERG” off Upcoming EP ‘What Was Life?’

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Video editor Joseph Rubino got the genius idea of stitching together 60 songs of different genres that all have “whoa-oh-oh” choruses, from 2006 to 2015. The result is depressing.You might remember that earlier this month, someone did the same thing, but with country music. Collectively, this is the sound of music as a product, created to be sold, and to help lubricate the selling of other products.Not to make too much of a pop music trope, but it’s interesting that it’s so crowd-focused. These whoa-oh-ohs are communal; it’s what a 13-year-old might imagine a…

Something that I think we should see more of and may help to get some, dare I say it, out of their ruts - the Chonkin' Tunes Day open mic sessions in Wigan hosted by the mighty Chonkinfeckle.There are so many clubs around the world now, and most uke players I know get involved with one or more of them, but you really can't beat a good open stage, a microphone and a sound system to really test your mettle. I think there should be more of that - just get up and do a tune people! And that's what Tim and Les from…
  • A Look Again at Ukulele Tuner Devices

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

    Ah, electrifying a ukulele. A massive subject in itself and something I still see a great many discussions on. My readers will know that my preference is for a passive system, amplifying the signal 'off' the ukulele rather than the glut of onboard systems that are out there cut into the sides of poor instruments. So as well as this being a review of a pre amp box I have used for a good year or two now, I intend to also expand on my thoughts on the subject generally. Here we have my trusty Fishman Pro EQ II box.Rugged plastic caseSo what are the options for ukulele players wanting to amplify…
  • TGI Tenor Ukulele Hard Case - REVIEW

    Barry Maz

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

    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.

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

  • Revival or Revolution? – Shoegaze on the Uprise

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

    Jamies Bea is coming strong with his latest track, 5 Star Love. It’s a wild production that’s drenched in electronic textures and infuses a nod to ’80s hip-hop sfx. Jamies’ vocals are used like an instrument, blending in amongst the deep layers of fast paced, electro funk sounds. Really, I can barely make out the lyrics, but it works. This track is a bold, mish-mash of genres and I’m loving every bit of it. Someone on Jamies’ Soundcloud commented “Release a damn mixtape!” I completely agree. Let’s get a full project!

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

    If you ever need a lesson in stacking vocals, you can get it from The Cars and producer Roy Thomas Baker, with a great example being this week's isolated vocal track of "Let The Good Times Roll" from the band's first 1978 album.The entire album was recorded in only two weeks, but the background vocals are special in that they fully utilize Baker's unique Stephens 40 track tape machine with layers of overdubs.This technique has been used a lot since then, but mostly when you have a band that doesn't sing well together. By doubling, tripling, quadrupling (and more) each vocal part, you even out…

It was written on clay tablets in cuneiform signs in the hurrian language, which was later interpreted into modern musical notation in 1972 by professor Anne Draffkorn Kilmer of the University of California, according to an article on Open Culture.The song isn't all that much melody wise, but it does confirm that there was a 7 note diatonic scale and harmony being used way back then.

It's really a dual course 8 string bass so it gives you a 12 string guitar quality.

Looking back, the songwriting lineup was impressive with songs by Van Dyke Parks, Lenny Waronker, and Randy Newman.

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

Reasons include (but not exclusive to):Sick of being poorSick of travelingSick of bandmatesSick of abusing substancesSick of corporate runaroundsSick of being sickSick of being unknown Sick of being known Sick of being underapprcatedSick of being badIllness DeathAny or all of those have put the kibosh on the dreams or harmony of a musical group. Some groups change rarely, but just the sheer number of years on the road will bring about change. Others can change lineups so much that reunions of the bands…
  • Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted

    29 Jul 2014 | 9:56 am
         Last time many of you heard from me on this forum, we had stopped the radio show and the blog posts had slowed to a trickle. Life had changed our plans, and although we willing accepted the changes in our career plans and our move to Southern Mississippi, the extra responsibilities caused me to rethink some priorities and the radio show AND blog went by the wayside.     There were attempts on my part to re-ignite the blog by setting up a new site and domain name, but just couldn't get the mojo working again. A friend of mine said to me several years…
  • Edwin Hawkins Singers--Oh Happy Day (1969)

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

  • New Professor Music- 15 for 15 (Free Compilation)

    29 Jan 2015 | 7:30 am
    The Los Angeles-based record slingers at New Professor Music are hinting at a huge year. At the tail end of 2014, they laced us with the highly infectious A-side of Criminal Hygiene's Turpentine 7" and then delivered this ear worm-filled compilation just a couple of weeks ago. 15 for 15: New Music from New Professor by Pkwy15 for 15: New Music from New Professor by Danny Bobbe15 for 15 is a sampler of forthcoming tunes from the budding label and features stand out cuts from Pkwy, Winter Beach, Danny Bobbe, and Spaceships.

  • Culture Abuse- Perfect Light (Video)

    29 Jan 2015 | 12:37 am
    Culture Abuse was one of our top 10 new artists of 2014.Noisey said:Rising Cali noise-punks Culture Abuse have the important shit on their to-do list in order. Just take a peek at their telling, priorities-driven bio: “Dudes from San Francisco and Santa Rosa getting drunk and doing drugs, and then also writing riffs and playing shows.” That’s right—for this kind of trashy, kind of trashed five-piece, consuming illegal substances and booze takes precedent over songwriting and gigs.But listening to Culture Abuse’s forthcoming seven-inch “Spray Paint The Dog,” (F U Black Flag and…
  • Chimes- Total Sunflower (Video)

    29 Jan 2015 | 12:24 am
    New Jersey/Brooklyn-based Chimes (one of our top 10 new bands of 2014) 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 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.
  • Passenger Peru- The Best Way To Drown

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

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

    Once again, I called for open voting on the year’s best Snapshots, and once again I am fairly surprised by the results. I touched on this last year, but I think this is because I know which photos took the most skill, which were the most opportune and– on the flip side– which did not turn out the way I wanted them to. 2014’s best shots were largely selected by fans of the Snapshots and Needle Drops facebook page. There was one photo I’ve given a more favourable position to than it was voted, two were dismissed, and after that, I was merely the tie-breaker. Emily…

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

In Greg Kot’s book Ripped: How the Wired Generation Revolutionized Music– my all time favourite book about music– he references Joni Mitchell’s remarks on how, when she was signed, record companies offered multi-album deals.  Joni’s first contract gave her something like eight albums. Mitchell claims this allowed her to grow naturally as an artist, hone her writing and musicality. These days, if you don’t sell– or…

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

  • One Theme, Three Ways: Customizing Twenty Fifteen

    Ben Huberman
    27 Jan 2015 | 8:00 am
    Our default theme this year, Twenty Fifteen, draws visitors’ eyes to what matters most — the text and images you publish on your site. Crisp typography, generous spacing, streamlined navigation: Twenty Fifteen shows that less can indeed be more (and that it can look great on any device). Keeping things simple and streamlined doesn’t mean you can’t make a theme your own, of course. From free custom color schemes (pictured in the gallery above) to a vertical header area with ample space to channel your (and your site’s) personality, Twenty Fifteen is a…

    And so, it was the Canadians who came and conquered the cold dark surroundings of North London last night as both ‘Alvvays’ and their extremely impressive support band ‘Moon King’ warmed our cold frost bitten bodies and our musical addictions. Two live sets of the highest quality and as much Red Stripe as one could afford were our rewards for venturing out in conditions reminiscent of a Darwinian novel (OK maybe I’m exaggerating a little but I really feel the cold and multiple layering rarely helps). The Scala was rammed to the roof-tops of excitable fans, journalists and an…

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

    Paul Smith
    27 Jan 2015 | 12:33 pm
    The great skua (Stercorarius skua) is a large seabird, it is sometimes known by the name bonxie. The flight is direct and powerful. Due to its size, aggressive nature and fierce defence of its nest, the great skua has little to fear from other predators. Bonxies are at the top of the food chain. They are certainly a powerful, intimidating and ruthless predator. The adjectives used to describe the bonxie are probably not those you would normally associate with Stornoway, who will be releasing their third long player, named after this Hebridean seabird on 13th April 2015 through Cooking Vinyl.

    It's that magical Sunday -- the one where buffalo chicken dip and guacamole are more than acceptable as dinner and when you pretend to care about both football and commercials while also trying to recap your weekend adventures with your friends. Are you ready for the Super Bowl?(via)If you've been blissfully unaware the last few weeks, this year's showdown takes place in Arizona between the New England Patriots and last year's champs, the Seattle Seahawks. And the real news has been about the amount of pressure in footballs -- Deflategate has taken over every other talk of the actual game.

And this song was in last week's episode.Anyway, Hindsight is a charming story of time travel in which a girl goes back in time (to 1995) and calls off her first wedding (and this all happens the night before her second wedding!). But you've seen the commercials on Hulu, no doubt.One of the best parts of this show is all of the throwbacks -- there is so much 1990s goodness, from the Ace of Base in the pilot to this week's "December" by Collective Soul.

    It’s often hard not to question why such good people are allowed to pass away at such a young age. I’ve struggled with and at times avoided the way such situations make me feel. Last Sunday, Ron Berg, my oldest friend from childhood passed away after a miraculous fight with brain cancer. His attitude and faith turned what should have been a death sentence of “a few months to live” into 7 more wonderful years of fulfilling dreams, falling in love, and starting an eternal family. I would be remiss, if I didn’t take the time to express my gratitude for him. I have…

In 2008, the Super Bowl came and went and Central Phoenix didn’t get much of the hub-bub other than a blip on the traffic jam cameras in the I-10 underpass. This year, Superbowl XLIX in Glendale is not just Sunday afternoon on February 1st.

  • PR Skills: How to Write a Musician Biography

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

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

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

  • Dead Sara at The Merrow

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

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

    New EDM Producer is Making a Name with FALL 2014 EDM is one of those genres I keep coming back to time and again, mostly for its dance/house roots and easy listening characteristics. There's nothing quite like being out on a Friday or Saturday night with your friends and getting lost in the mix late at night. However, like in any genre or sub-genre of music, there are great artists and then there are those who don't quite make the cut. Some songs in particular really inspire me to get on my feet.Chicago-based EDM Producer BOMBS DROPPING is one of those who has truly outdone himself with…

    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…

    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…

  • Apple Patent Issued For Sharing Media

    dangellert
    29 Jan 2015 | 9:42 pm
    Apple was awarded a patent for sharing music and videos that, in the most basic sense, allows a purchaser to share their digital file while enabling Apple the ability to monetize and possibly track the shared file. Apple patents technology inventions often, but that does not guarantee it will show up in a product any time soon. This particular patent may lend itself to marrying an iTunes download with legitimately sharing it with someone else. But it also describes a two-tier pricing structure. The first tier for a download while the second tier for use without downloading (which may also…

    Ian Rogers is auctioning off a private lunch to raise money for The Pablove Foundation through Charity Buzz. The highest bidder can choose Los Angeles or Cupertino with a starting bid of $600. The lunch is estimated to be a $3000 value. Other Apple executives have offered gatherings to raise money for charities, most notably Eddie Cue and CEO Tim Cook. Cook raised over $600,000 and $300,000 on his first two fundraisers. The Pablove Foundation invests in pediatric cancer research, and through the arts, helps children living with cancer.

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

    Death Cab For Cutie has announced tour dates in support of their 8th album, ‘Kintsugi’. They’ve also unveiled their new single, ‘Black Sun’, for which you can see the video above. ‘Kintsugi’ will be released on 31 March on Atlantic Records – pre-order it on iTunes right here. We’re hoping that this marks Death Cab’s bounceback from their 2011 ‘Codes And Keys’ record – which was noteworthy for all the wrong reasons. ‘Black Sun’ isn’t groundbreaking stuff but hearing Gibbard’s vocal is still as…

    Bursting onto the scene is new band October Drift with this their debut single and video for ‘Whoever’. The band have already created a buzz with a few low-key live performances at the end of 2014 that has already led to some of their upcoming gigs being sold-out. Impressive for a band these days to get by on word of mouth alone but October Drift certainly are one to watch. The video for ‘Whoever’ plays out the story of a man in reverse, which the band says is deliberate. “We want to disorientate the viewer a little, both visually and sonically, but leave things…

The inside of Bush Hall is an elegant, corniced, Victorian room, and as it filled up it was clear that the broad age-range was going to mean the audience would be suitably well-behaved for the location. Kate Stables opened for the band with a voice of beguiling simplicity, and a thank you to the band for always carrying her bags on tour (somehow it doesn’t come as a surprise that they are all nice guys).

We now have our doubts and reckon they knocked the record together across a few hungover afternoons and spent the rest of their time camped in a cosy Tobermory boozer strategising about the really important stuff. Alcohol. Credit to them though, unlike most bright ideas born in the pub it seems Idlewild have seen theirs through to fruition. ‘Scottish Fiction IPA’ is their very own craft beer brewed in…

    After 2014’s split EP with Welsh noise-pop quartet Joanna Gruesome expectations were very high with me for the debut album from Trust Fund. My hope was that Ellis Jones is a songwriting maverick, effortlessly sitting in his bedroom churning out one high quality song after another. Was I right? Well, not a million miles away. Any of the three songs from that EP would sit very comfortably on this album and would probably be stand out tracks but this album demonstrates that there’s plenty more to come.

The track will be the lead song on their forthcoming Almost Famous cassette. ‘Smother’ is a trashy distortion filled explosion of guitars and pounding drums and comes across as a louder, catchier, better Muffs. It’s a big jump in the right direction for a band who’ve released various singles and split cassettes over the last few years, most recently with the like-minded Girlpool.

After a controversial and harsh faux feminist protest during his Chanel Spring/Summer 2015 ready-to-wear collection, Karl Lagerfeld contrasted the drama with a return to a pretty, feminine softness in his haute couture. The classic Chanel suit was given a youthful glow with bared midriffs. (“The stomach is free. It’s the new cleavage,” Lagerfeld said during a preview.) Black and white looks…

    We all have probably heard of the foreign dating scam, lottery scam or the IRS scam. There is a new scam that has a unique twist and it involves an easy target...the unsigned rap artist! I was alerted by an unsigned rap artist inquiring if I knew the right-hand man of one of the most well-known rappers in the game today. The unsigned rapper was sent a message on Facebook by "this manager" asking if he wanted to open up for the famous rapper at the TD Bank Garden. Well hours later, I received similar messages from several other unsigned rap artists about opening at Mohegan Sun Arena. I decided…

It underscores how important it is to be aware of "sharks" looking to profit off the hopes and dreams of unsigned artists. Many other major artists have made their disdain known and warned about the music industry's shady underworld. With the popularity of social media, these con artists have discovered a new method to find victims. Technological advances have made it so easy for con artists to target and scam indie music artists. Since the rise…

    Nick Robinson
    28 Jan 2015 | 3:47 pm
    Sleater-Kinney have done something rare and wonderful with their new album. For one thing it’s a reunion album that’s actually worth listening to, which is an obscure enough thing in its own right for a band (solo artists get the odd comeback, especially in their later years – the Johnny Cash Revival), but they’ve also achieved something even greater. They’ve made a relevant album in the band’s middle-age.The band Sleater-Kinney takes its name from an intersection where they used to rehearse. An obscure name for what was to be an obscure band. Except that as they released albums…

    Legendary Wu-Tang member Ghostface Killah has teamed up with Canadian jazz-funk trio BADBADNOTGOOD on a collaborative LP Sour Soul set for release at the end of next month. If this song and video are anything to go by, the whole project will sound like a time capsule of pure 60/70’s lo-fi goodness. On Ray Gun, they’ve employed the mesmerising talents of Ghostface’s old mate, DOOM. The retro video features Odd Future’s Left Brain as The Mask, with his real life girlfriend appearing at the end as The Goddess.Pre-order the album here: http://soursoul.lexrecords.com/

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

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

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

    We would like to highlight two different platforms for accessing music, their increase in popularity and importance within the music industry. The LP (Long Play) vinyl record, introduced back in 1948 by Columbia records, is now seen as a collectors item and evokes a sense of nostalgia in modern day consumers.

Furthermore, the report demonstrated that it was the older consumer that was dominating the market with 35-44 year old’s being the largest…

    Erik Jones, Florida 1982, is a painter and an online/offline illustrator; I liked Jones because he has a very broad colors palette, full of different patterns, styles, however, always with amazing symmetry. For this blog I have picked the less anime-ish and cartoon-ish sketches, however, he has really cool stuff with completely different styles that you […]

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

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

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