    In this article, I want to cover my top 2 breathing exercises for singing which will help you to sing effortlessly. It’s obvious that breathing is absolutely fundamental to singing, but you would be surprised a how many singers do not breathe correctly when singing, and it can cause all kinds of issues, such as running out of breath during a phrase etc. Before we get into the exercises, I want to cover what actually proper breathing is, so that when you get to the exercises, you are practicing the right thing. So let’s explore my top g=breathing exercises for singing. What is…

After growing up together on the Isle of Man the band upped roots and moved to London, a city 3 times the size of the sleepy island, and with nearly 100 times the population. Leaving friends and family behind in order for their music to reach a wider audience and to peruse their life-long ambitions is not something to be taken lightly but the decision was made with confidence, knowing that each and every…

     For some strange reason, the world – and Hollywood to be sure – have suddenly become taken with the adventures of the man who is perhaps the greatest fictional detective of all time, Sherlock Holmes.  We’ve seen the British super-sleuth immortalized on the big screen with Robert Downey Jr. as the title character, breathing new life into the series created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  Even the BBC got in on the action, with the ultra-popular series Sherlock starring the one and only Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes, and Martin Freeman as his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson.

    Even though he gets a lot of crap, Ryan Reynolds is actually a pretty great actor, and by all accounts, a pretty decent guy.  Sure, he’s made some real stinkers over the course of his career, but who hasn’t?  What I dig about him is that he never lets it get him down, and he’s always working.  He was one of the first people I ever interviewed and I thought he was a pretty mellow gent.  We’re all waiting for next year when the actor finally gets to suit up as Marvel’s “Merc With A Mouth” Deadpool, but it’s not the only film he’s…

    Auto sales in February were up over January, and up over what was seen last year, but overall there was disappointment in the air.  With record snow fall in many parts of the country,  auto sales were bound to be impacted.  Overall, auto sales were a bit above 1.25 million and had a SAAR of 16.2 million.  Analysts were looking for a SAAR of 16.7 million. For SiriusXM, the numbers that were delivered were still decent news.  The satellite radio provider garners most of its subscribers from the trials offered to consumers when a new car is purchased.  About half of the cars sold last…

For SiriusXM, increasing car sales is always a good sign.  The satellite radio provider garners most of its subscribers and exposure from people buying new cars that are equipped with satellite radio.  About two thirds of all new cars incorporate satellite radio…

    From the moment “Outta My Head” begins, I love this album.  Liz Longley’s self-titled debut on the legendary Sugar Hill label is a thing of beauty.  Her voice, filled with warmth and sultry-ness and her songs, which are lyric-smart and melody-rich immediately hit all the right notes and heights.  Country/Americana perfection at its best.  Add to that a top-notch production by Gus Berry and you have a just-right, total package.  Overall, this is Liz Longley’s third full-length album – hopefully, this is the one that will put her on the map for all the world…

    In Geek Rock: An Exploration of Music and Subculture, editors Alex DiBlasi and Victoria Willis examine the intertwining of “geek culture” and music, in a methodical and very academic fashion.  This is a serious study of and look at what could be termed as the music specifically geared toward/embraced by the “geek” culture.  I do have to say that while I think the term is unfair – there is nothing geeky, nerdy, etc. about listening to the likes of Captain Beefheart or Frank Zappa – I can understand that the musics discussed in this book are, by and large,…

    So we’re talking about Nimoy, huh? Okay. Fine. But how about this. Let’s not talk about Spock; or at least, let’s talk about Spock at a remove. The Star Trek franchise was at yet another crossroads between life and death. The public and critical support for The Wrath Of Khan made it relevant again. The scene-chewing in The Search For Spock dropped it back down to its metaphorical knees. Paramount needed a savior for its franchise, but the company was also crazy enough to say yes to virtually anything. And here it is: turn it into an ecology-loving, screwball romantic comedy.

    Two and a half years have passed since Purity Ring dropped their debut LP Shrines on 4AD. Every time I hear that, I’m totally baffled. How has it only been two and a half years? It feels like Purity Ring have been a household indie pop name for an eternity. After a handful of one off singles over the previous year, Purity Ring dropped the biggest debut LP of the year and, within a year, the record seemed omnipresent. In Seattle alone, we saw Purity Ring go from a barely visible Sasquatch obscurity to a spooky lantern-lit Neumos set to a magical forest setup at Neptune to a full-fledged…

    Peter Kirn
    4 Mar 2015 | 9:47 am
    The line between pain and ecstasy on a computer for music making can often boil down to some key elements. One commonly on that short list is getting the sound you might from a studio. Another is making all your inputs and outputs work in your interface. Universal Audio is one of a handful of vendors that aims to bridge both of those gaps in a single product, with devices that are audio interfaces as well as DSP platforms for hosting high-quality effects. And UA are starting out 2015 with a fairly big benchmark for the company in that software/hardware integration. That’s the good news.

The band is currently in the middle of their Frozen Flame U.S. headlining tour, alongside Miss May I, Northlane, Fit For A King, and Erra.The subject matter is sensitive. There’s a lot of stuff that we’re not going to let you know what the lyrics mean, because we want each listener to take it for what they need it for, not for what we’re giving you. But there’s a lot of sensitive stuff there, there might even be some questionable subject matter where people are like “What’s this?”

Ras Kass spits with reckless abandon, between El Gants’ rapid fire flow that fuses cultural analogies with tales of industry shenanigans. To make the cypher complete, Sweden’s DJ Devastate add his razor sharp scratch chorus over Jake Palumbo’s synth heavy production. Filed under: Music Tagged:…

If I remember this correctly, someone at the sampling workshop that Thes and I put together asked what we thought of hip-hop instrumental remakes by jazz bands, citing BBNG as one example. I said I hadn’t heard their work but that, on principle, it always seemed like an odd idea since odds are, a jazz remake wasn’t going to improve upon the instrumental of the original. But you know what? This is pretty damn good. And no, it’s not better than Pete Rock’s original…

I can’t quite figure out if this is a cover of an Edgar Alexander song or of Alexander first wrote it for Rodriguez. Either way, I’m all about these kinds of unexpectedly funky tracks from the late ’70s and early ’80s since they take the borderline cheesiness of rock production in that era but marry it with some slick rhythm section. It’s a good combination. 365 Days of Soul, #65

    One Instagrammer called the models walking under Vionnet’s lush arbor of greenery “garden goddesses,” but with all the coordinating luggage rolling behind them we think creative director Goga Ashkenazi had a slightly less domestic destination in mind. Vionnet’s tropical set at the Centre Pompidou conjured up exotic visions of a jungle jaunt fit for Victorian ladies in search of some adventure. All those austere high-necked collars, and long, fluid skirts felt fresh thanks to transparent fabrics that could easily double as ultra chic mosquito netting in a pinch.

In honor of over twenty years of innovation, let’s reflect on Bjork’s best looks. 1. At the 62nd Venice Film Festival in 2005, Bjork donned a look that seems to be influenced by the ballet and space. This look is relatively simple for her standards, but it still represents the artist perfectly. View image | gettyimages.com 2. At…

  • 20 Years Of PJ Harvey’s To Bring You My Love

    Arielle Parnes-Katz
    4 Mar 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Twenty years ago PJ Harvey released To Bring You My Love. At the time she was no stranger to the CMJ Charts, but with this seminal album she reached a new level of college radio success. Rid Of Me had its moment to shine on the college radio charts when it spent five weeks in No. 1 in 1993. Not to discount PJ Harvey’s success with that album, but In the ’90s a five week run on the charts was rather commonplace, unlike today where not many albums last that long. Two years later, To Bring You My Love took the CMJ charts by storm and held on to No. 1 for a staggering eight…

And it’s a refreshing digression from the West Coast’s current oversaturation of so-called “psych” bands. The post-punk foursome played Sunday night at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, and then graced the glittering basement of Manhattan’s Cake Shop on Monday, with support from two two-pieces, Crown Jewel and Brainfreeze.

Instead of completely changing your strategy and mindset, make little changes gradually. Little tweaks in your social media strategy and simple messages, tweets, or emails can make a…

  • An A – Z guide to Nicolas Nabokov

    Raquel Fernandes
    3 Mar 2015 | 1:30 am
    Who was Nicolas Nabokov? The Russian-born American composer had a huge impact on music and culture globally, but his name remains relatively unknown. He had friends and acquaintances in a variety of circles, whether his cousin the writer Vladimir, the poet Auden, or the choreographer Balanchine. He travelled across the world despite the dangers of the Cold War. His compositions ranged from ballets to operas, concertos to symphonies. This A to Z gives an idea of the amazing range of the composer’s life and work. A — Auden Nabokov met W.H. Auden during the Second World War and they remained…
  • Rebel Girl: Lesley Gore’s voice

    VictoriaD
    28 Feb 2015 | 1:30 am
    In 2005, Ms magazine published a conversation between pop singer Lesley Gore and Kathleen Hanna of the bands Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. Hanna opened with a striking statement: “First time I heard your voice,” she said, “I went and bought everything of yours – trying to imitate you but find my own style.” Despite being two singers known for very different genres – they’re icons of 1960s teen pop, and riot grrl and feminist dance-punk, respectively – Gore and Hanna do have strikingly similar singing voices. In her 1960s recordings, Gore’s voice sounds distinctly…
  • Iggy (Azalea) pop: Is cultural appropriation inappropriate?

    VictoriaD
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:30 am
    Popular music is much more than mere entertainment—it helps us make sense of who we are or who we hope to be. Although music is but one of pop culture’s media outlets, our tendency to embody and take ownership of sound—whether through our headphones, MP3 downloads, dancing, or singing—often makes it difficult to separate our personal connection to popular music from the cultural context in which it was created. But if we listen carefully to its reverberation throughout the nation, we might better understand how the subconscious of our society is shaped by what gets recorded and…
  • The art of musical arrangements

    SoniaT
    24 Feb 2015 | 1:30 am
    ‘I write arrangements, I’m sort of a wannabe composer’ – consciously or otherwise, these words from violinist Joshua Bell seem to give voice to the tension between these two interlocking musical activities. For arrangement and composition are interlocked, as composers throughout the ages have arranged, adapted, revised, and generally played free with musical compositions of all kinds (their own and other people’s) for reasons artistic, practical, or downright commercial. If an arrangement is – in the definition of New Grove – ‘the reworking of a musical composition, usually…
  • Great man drumming: Birdman, Whiplash, and myth of the male artist

    Raquel Fernandes
    19 Feb 2015 | 3:30 am
    Among this year’s Oscar nominees for Best Picture were two films with drum scores: Whiplash, in which a highly regarded but abusive conductor molds an aspiring young jazz musician into the genius he was meant to be, and Birdman, in which an aging film actor who was never a genius at all stars in a play and possibly flies. In spite of their innovative soundtracks, neither film received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score. In the case of Whiplash this was unsurprising; the film’s key scenes use jazz standards, not new music. However, the exclusion of Birdman was controversial. The…

    Portrait by Tom Bachtell. I can hardly bring myself to write this, because I do not yet accept it, but my dear friend Andrew Patner, one of the wisest, wittiest, most generous, most avid, most altogether vital people in the world of the arts, died this morning in Chicago, at the age of fifty-five. It was a constant joy to have Andrew in my life, and it was an endless, enriching education. He offered advice, he offered criticism, he offered time, he offered knowledge (staggeringly encyclopedic knowledge, on every imaginable subject), and, above all, he offered companionship. I feel lost and…

    4 Mar 2015 | 4:28 pm
    I knew Thomas Rhett was young, but I had no idea he was THIS young.  So just how young IS T.R., you ask? Well he's young enough that he once had Blake Shelton help him with his English homework.  From IHeartRadio:  Growing up in the 90’s with Rhett Akins as his dad, Thomas Rhett was always around country music singers and was used to them hanging out around the house. In fact, he recalls one time when he was a kid that Blake Shelton came to their house. “When I was in the eighth grade I came home with an English project and Blake Shelton helped me with my English project,” says…

    How exciting! After a decade away from the road, Shania Twain is finally heading out on tour.  The singer made the announcement this morning on Good Morning America.  "I'm finally, after 11 years, I'm going back on tour," the "Man!

Unfortunately, Shania says this will be her farewell tour and will officially be her last.  "This is a very, very important time on the road for me," Twain said.

    I've always wondered how tough it was for Texas native Miranda Lambert to have married one of the world's most famous Okie's, Blake Shelton. She's seemed to have embraced her new found love of Oklahoma and planted her roots there, but where do her loyalties honestly lie? “Oklahoma has welcomed me, and I found my second home in my husband’s home state,” she tells the Tulsa World. “We love living there on our farm. I am a fan of the small-town feel, and I get to be myself,” she says of her adopted hometown of Tishomingo. While that may seem like the big state of Texas wasn't going to…

At one point Cam was also a member of the band Crystal Castles. Both bands are incredible so when Cam asked me to remix his new project VOTIIV I didn’t hesitate in saying YES! For VOTIIV Cam has teamed up with Kat Duma on vocals. I selected the song Bad Memory to remix. My method of remixing music is a little different than the way most producers go about things.

    4 Mar 2015 | 9:02 am
    Chasing Yesterday is an apt title for the second record by former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher's solo project, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. Why? Because it sounds a lot like Oasis. While Noel's brother, Liam Gallagher, was the voice, Noel was the master craftsman behind Oasis in the band's heyday, so it's no surprise that in turning his talents to another project, that same signature sound crept in. In fact, it's more than welcome. Chasing Yesterday opens up with "Riverman" with its jangly guitars and drum fills sounding like a hidden track from the "Wonderwall" single.  Watch as…

  • Vocal Strain: What is it? What can you do about it?

    Judy Rodman
    19 Feb 2015 | 5:14 pm
    Vocal Strain- Never Again!What is vocal strain?Vocal strain, like any other strain, is the overuse or misuse of the vocal cords. Only 1/2" to 1" long in adults, these little bands easily can be overblown. After just 20 minutes of screaming at a ball game, blood blisters can begin to form on them! The mucosal lining covering the vocal cords becomes irritated and inflamed, the sound of the voice becomes harsher, less controlled; you can even lose your voice completely for a time. You know it when you do it, don't you? Strain your voice, that is. Sometimes you want to pretend you didn't...

  • 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…

    While Nikhil Kaul can’t make his apocalyptic obsessions more obvious, it’s clear that his definition of the word ‘apocalypse’ extends to matters both personal and worldly. He borrowed the title of his last release, Hard Boiled Wonderland, from a Murakami novel in which the protagonist faces the prospect of being trapped in his subconscious for the rest of his life. The release itself sounded subdued and insular — Kaul had squarely fixed his sights inwards. The relative expansiveness of its follow-up, Pariah, is made immediately apparent by the cover.

  • REVIEW: “Losing Ground”: An intimate look at a black woman’s long-awaited film

    Rob Fields
    12 Feb 2015 | 2:44 pm
    Anticipation and longing. That’s what so many within the black independent film community have been feeling ever since the seminal film Losing Ground was directed by Kathleen Collins. Some folks had known Collins, who died at age 46 in 1988. Others had moved in her orbit as students, or as crew on the set of her film. Across the decades, scholars and curators and filmmakers alike have referenced Collins’ groundbreaking film about a black woman intellectual with an artist husband on a quest for sexual liberation. Everyone knew about this mythic film. But almost no one had seen it.

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 –…

    Heather
    15 Feb 2015 | 5:38 am
    Image © Sarah Zagni 2015 December, I took a break. A holiday! A blissful, four-week interlude to reflect on the old and prepare for the new. January, I hit the ground running. I sketched out a plot of the cues in the Emergency Story Penguin script (using Goodnotes and a Jot Mini stylus on iPad), Slung Low’s latest children’s show. I realised that for a 1-hour-long-show there was a lot of music to be written, and so I had to get on that writing pretty quickly. It was clear that the main song was the first order of business, the heart of the score, and an important starting point…

    24 Feb 2015 | 8:10 am
    William Thomas McKinley was a true American original and, to my knowledge, the first American classical composer who was also a major post-bop jazz pianist. He abolished this duality and saw creative music from a perspective of higher unity. Tom demonstrated how, musically and spiritually, one could embrace both—through notes, gestures, and at every imaginable level.

  • Album Review: ‘Pop2!’, Dana Countryman

    Peter Lee
    22 Feb 2015 | 12:51 pm
    The subtitle for Dana Countryman's second solo album, "Pop2!", is "The Exploding Musical Mind of Dana Countryman." While that may seem a bit self-serving for an album title, it's apt: Countryman's mind is exploding with music from the 1960s and 1970s. He seems to have found a formula for the prototypical 70s soft-rock song, and he applies it to most of the songs on the album. The album's opener "Baby, I'll Be Your Star," is pure sugary pop in the style of Eric Carmen and the Raspberries with a touch of the Left Banke (hear the harpsichord?). Complete with three-art harmonies, saxophones and…
  • Lesley Gore: 1946-2015

    Peter Lee
    18 Feb 2015 | 7:45 pm
    Most of the obituaries for Lesley Gore, who died Feb. 16 at the age of 68, listed "It's My Party" as the classic teen angst song, long before Taylor Swift or Debbie Gibson tried the same thing. But honestly, I've never really paid that much attention to the lyrics outside of the chorus. Ah, the chorus. That moving chorus with the chromatic steps up and down the scale breaks your heart. Raising just one note by a half-step creates tension and sadness in the song - more than any words about Johnny and Judy could achieve. It was a classic girl group song - so much so that Phil Spector wanted it…

The interpreter is Wyatt Funderburk, one of the newest members of a revamped Explorers Club that has changed with each album. The band has almost completed its third album, slated for release in late summer. Brewer met Funderburk, who was already an Explorers Club fan, on Facebook, and the two used to trade spins on the now-defunct turntable.fm. When Brewer moved to Nashville, he asked Funderburk to be in the new…

    Last night's Grammy awards show bored many viewers. Maybe it's because there was very little controversy (Hi, Kanye! You're back!) and few bizarre performances. It was just a straight-up pop music show, interspersed with Sam Smith and Beck going onstage to accept awards every 15 minutes. Yes, many of the songs performed were low-key, but who cares? They were still full of power and emotion, and for a few exceptions, the musicianship was better than any Grammy show I've seen in a while. The Best: 1. Poor Hozier. The emerging artist from the UK performed his song "Take Me to Church" and was…

    Some of us go weak in the knees at the sight of a new bookstore or library. Such was certainly the case when we glanced at Cărtureşti Carusel bookstore, opened on February 12 on Lipscani Street in Bucharest’s historical Old Town, also often called just Lipscani. The magnificent Chrissoveloni bank building, now owned by Jen Chrissoveloni, the great-grandson of the 19th century banker, created a magnificent starting point for the retail project. According to the Romanian media, the current owner invested 1 million Euro in the renovation and leased the building to the Cărtureşti…
  • Villa Moos - Lake Constance, Germany

    9 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Villa Moos by Lake Constance (Bodensee) at the northern foot of the Alps draws our attention with its building-block appearance and foreboding façade.   And yet, surprisingly, with these almost semi-brutalist intentions, the look of heaviness does not follow.   Instead, there’s a delightful mood of lightness, almost of semi-permanence. It seems as if the entire structure could be a fold-up affair made of exceptionally strong origami paper or very light sheets of card board, ready for packing up and carting elsewhere. But as we know metal and glass are the main…

As a Suzuki-trained violin teacher, I believe that listening to high-quality performances and recordings is a must. Learning how to play an instrument without listening to music would be the equivalent […]

  • Rikers Inmates Team Up to Save Guard From Sexual Assault

    Over the weekend, a group of Rikers Island inmates saw a fellow inmate jump a prison guard and drag her into a locked bathroom. The inmate's name was Raleek Young, and he had gained access to a watch post, grabbed the guard and taken her into a bathroom where he attempted to sexually assault her. Fortunately, a few other inmates saw what Young was doing and took swift action. One of them managed to slip through a crack in the locked room and let the others in, where they freed the guard, tackled Young and held him down until other officers arrived.

  • Want to Hear from God? Slow Down.

    There are few surer ways to miss out on God's voice than urgency. Deadlines. Relational drama. Global injustice. Multiple jobs. Financial stress. Life is relentlessly difficult and moves insanely fast. The world is changing and evolving every moment and the pressure to keep up, stay current and get ahead can be all consuming. Can I hear God’s voice above all the noise? One of the most significant challenges of our rapid culture is the sense of urgency it creates. Urgency is good for getting things done. A healthy sense of urgency helps us to be focused and productive.

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

Forgive the style, I was in a Chomsky mood at the time. There's a post that accomponies this that has some quick thoughts on 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…

    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.

  • Everything You Need to Know About Vic Mensa, Kanye West’s New Protégé

    Shane Barnes
    4 Mar 2015 | 11:15 am
    February 15, 2015 was a big day for Vic Mensa. The 21-year-old, Chicago-native singer and rapper made his national television debut on the SNL 40th Anniversary Special, alongside Kanye West and Sia, wearing whiteout contacts and post-apocalyptic rags. They were performing Kanye’s “Wolves,” the rumored opening track of his upcoming album, So Help Me God. The performance, with its odd staging and menacing vibe, was one of the best things of that much-anticipated special, and it resulted in one of those now-too-frequent who is that? freakouts on Twitter. So, to echo the…
  • Björk’s MoMA Retrospective: When Technology Fails Innovation

    Jillian Mapes
    4 Mar 2015 | 10:15 am
    A still from Bjork’s “Black Lake” film, commissioned by MoMA. Yesterday morning, at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, I found myself standing a few feet away from someone clad in a black cactus costume. Its face was covered, and thus it took me a minute to realize the cactus was Björk. Situated in a room custom-designed for the occasion (6,000 soundproofing cones covered the walls and ceiling),the Icelandic icon introduced her new MoMA-commissioned piece, the short film “Black Lake.” “I’m very grateful that Klaus [Biesenbach] convinced me to…
  • Kanye Debuts “Why U Mad” and Performs with Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon in London

    Moze Halperin
    4 Mar 2015 | 6:33 am
    Consequence of Sound reports that last night, Kanye performed a surprise show (in honor of his upcoming, thus unsurprising, surprise album, So Help Me God?), at London’s KOKO. It’s allegedly titled “Why U Mad,” and is the fifth song we’re hearing in some capacity off So Help Me God. Like “Wolves,” the track he recently performed on SNL, it was also a collaboration between Kanye and Vic Mensa. The 1.5 minute clip below is overlaid by menacing horns, bounding over a earthquaking beat — and, of course, a Kanye: In another surprise moment, Raekwon of…
  • Björk’s ‘Vulnicura’ Physical Release Artwork Is, Indeed, Quite Physical

    Moze Halperin
    3 Mar 2015 | 12:31 pm
    You may recognize that lavender and neon-yellow color palette and vaginal chest-gash from Björk’s original Vulnicura album cover; but while the art for the rushed digital release showed Björk erect and poised in her presentation of her symbolic wound (left by the deterioration of her long partnership with Matthew Barney), the art for the physical album, which will be released in mid-March, shows the singer in a far more compromised position. It reflects what we’ve already seen of her “Black Lake” music video — the singer is violently splayed against a large rock…
  • Confessions of a Reformed Kanye West Hater

    Tom Hawking
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:45 am
    It’s true, I used to hate Kanye West. Well, OK, “hate” is probably too strong a word — like many people, I had a sort of knee-jerk dislike for the man, a feeling that started to coalesce circa Graduation and didn’t really dissipate until, out of what I considered to be a professional obligation, I sat down and listened properly to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and found to my surprise that I loved it. Since then, my feelings on West have done a neat 180-degree turn, and I’ve also thought a great deal about why it is that I — like so many others — was…

    Mixi formed Stitched Up Heart in the aftermath of a not so desirable forced solo gig with Geffen Records as a result of her winning a Fuse TV reality show, Redemption Song in 2008. 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.

That said, you’d be forgiven if you’re not already familiar with the music of Lunifred Benjamin even if you’re a heavy consumer of new music. After all, much of the music blogosphere is currently fixated on synth pop, future pop, and electro pop (ok, anything with both synths and pop sensibilities) and it’s safe to say that Benjamin is…

    This post was first published in 2010, but the advice and experiences are still very relevant to musicians navigating the current music business.   You’re in music. You are frustrated with the industry, and on days where you are honest enough to admit it, you are jealous of several of the seemingly-talentless hacks that sit atop the pop charts.

And for someone just starting, it becomes a lot harder to play like that! You want to be very careful with reeds, since even a small chip will make it harder to play!

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…

    Mardi Gras has often been called the “Greatest Free Show on Earth,” and I don’t think anyone could possibly argue with that. A New Orleanian’s greatest pleasures is people- watching during Mardi Gras, whether it be girls gone wild in the Quarter, the St. Ann Street Parade, family costumes on St. Charles Avenue, marching bands—you get the picture (pun intended). Having spent most of my life in New Orleans, I also know that everyone here is into “free” stuff. Come to think of it, maybe the obsession with free is another manifestation of the so-called Mardi Gras Mentality.
  • The Sound of Silence

    28 Jan 2015 | 4:17 pm
    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? The Music and Cultural Coalition of New Orleans has worked hard to evaluate the proposed Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance, which has been under consideration for years…

  • The Tallest Man on Earth: Sagres

    admin
    24 Feb 2015 | 1:07 pm
    The Tallest Man on Earth has shared the first preview of Dark Bird Is Home, Kristian Matsson’s new LP due in May. “Sagres” — named after a small Portuguese village — drops the intimate, fingerpicked folk guitar and singing of his earlier work in exchange for lush strings, a traveling beat, and an echo-washed vocal. It’s a lovely fresh step, recalling Phosphorescent’s expanded sonic palette of late. Hear it above.
  • Alabama Shakes: Don’t Wanna Fight

    admin
    20 Feb 2015 | 4:20 pm
    Not long after we introduced the Shakes, they changed their name to Alabama Shakes, blew up in the press, and seemed eager to brush off the retro-soul label. A 2012 Zeppelin cover drove the point home further that this is a rock band, through and through, bound to subvert expectations. Well, here’s our first taste of the second record — or, as I’d like to call it, the post-breakthrough debut. On the surface it brings labelmates the Arctic Monkeys to mind a bit (dueling, stereo-panned electric guitars, etc.), but beneath that it’s simply a great band with a…
  • SOAK: Sea Creatures

    admin
    26 Jan 2015 | 11:38 am
    Derry/Londonderry singer-songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson first hit our radar last year with an incredibly promising debut EP, Blud, released on an imprint from the band Chvrches. Now she has a full-length on the way, due via Rough Trade later this year. “Sea Creatures” — the new LP preview — is a cut that arrived in solo-acoustic form last year, but now it’s even more affecting as a midtempo swoon, a beautiful piece of gloaming akin to some of her neighbors to the north. Hear it above.
  • Jessica Jalbert Returns as Faith Healer

    admin
    22 Jan 2015 | 5:30 pm
    Edmonton’s Jessica Jalbert released one of my favorite under-the-radar LPs of 2011, Brother Loyola, and now she’s back with a new record. Jalbert goes by Faith Healer these days, teaming up once again with René Wilson for a 12-track set titled Cosmic Troubles, due via Mint Records in March. There’s a colorful collage of nods to the ’60s infused here (sunny harmonies, handclaps, indelible melody, et al.), but — as with her previous work — something completely present persists, too. Among Jalbert’s many talents, the interwoven electric guitar…
  • José González: ‘Every Age’, ‘Leaf Off/The Cave’

    admin
    21 Jan 2015 | 10:20 pm
    José González returns with Vestiges And Claws, his first record in years under his own name, after recent material from Junip and 2010’s still-haunting Red Dead Redemption cut “Far Away.” The latest taste, “Leaf Off / The Cave” recalls Junip, with its undulating rhythm and dog-eared melodies, but “Every Age” is something a bit different from González. 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…

Born in Israel in 1958, he learned to play guitar when he was a boy and soon joined a rock ‘n’ roll band, touring Israel playing covers of songs by the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and others.

No two projects are ever alike.  It may not be because we haven’t created something similar, but the client…

  • 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.

    Let’s take a trip back in time. The year is 2006, and FensePost is only a few months old. I stumble upon a newly relocated indiepop artist called BOAT. 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.

    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…

    For many, there’s nothing like listening to some good music while unwinding from a stressful day, getting amped up to head out for the night or cruising in the car. Indeed, in an October 2014 study from GroupM ESP conducted by GroupM Next, US internet users ranked listening to music as the most important activity in their lives, at 22% of respondents. Meanwhile, watching television and reading came in second and third, at 21% and 20%, respectively. Based on the study, consumers want their music live, too, with one out of every two respondents saying they had attended a live concert or…

Auto dealers/dealer groups/manufacturers comprised the top-spending category, but cut spending by 2%. Four of the top 10 categories increased spending: #2 communications/cellular (+1%); #4 healthcare (+4%); #5 professional services (+4%); and #8 insurance companies (+3%).

When asked about the primary way in which they accessed music not available for streaming, US teen internet users said they found something else to listen to and waited for the original music to be available for streaming, compared with an average of 51% among all respondents. When they did go beyond streaming services like Spotify or Pandora, teens weren’t interested in paying—despite Piper Jaffray’s finding that MP3s, often paid for, grabbed the biggest portion of…

Streaming platforms such as Pandora and Spotify grabbed 64 minutes of teens’ daily time, vs. 53 minutes with broadcast radio and online streams of AM/FM stations. A spokesperson for Edison noted that AM/FM led by a “significant margin” among all other age groups, indicating a future shift in music consumption as younger consumers choose their listening…

  • Less is more: don’t feel you have to teach or learn new songs all the time (by Betsy Sansby)

    2 Mar 2015 | 4:15 am
    Many choir leaders end up feeling like song factories because we feel that our singers crave novelty. If we don’t keep giving them new things, they might leave.One World Community Choir conducted by Betsy SansbyActually most singers in a choir welcome singing the old, familiar songs and find it hard learning new stuff all the time. It’s important to find the balance.Many choir leaders end up feeling like they’re a song factory, churning out song after song, week after week. It all ends up feeling a bit like a production line.But we bring this upon ourselves! We feel that unless we’re…
  • If you don’t feel nervous before a concert or a singing workshop then something’s wrong

    23 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    I never sleep the night before running a singing workshop and I always feel terribly nervous before a concert – whether I’m singing or conducting.photo by FrancescoBut I wouldn’t have it any other way. The day you stop being nervous is the day you should give up. Here’s why.blast those nerves!I did a corporate singing workshop recently very much outside my comfort zone (large group of non-singers, mainly men). I was very, very nervous.

Is it possible to be successful, but fail at the same time?I recently ran a workshop for a conference of senior executives. There were almost 90 non-singers of whom around 80 were men.

  • Introducing: Them Are Us Too

    Tim
    25 Feb 2015 | 6:06 am
    It’s almost impossible to discuss Californian duo Them Are Us Too without making comparisons to shoegaze icons, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and, most obviously, Cocteau Twins. From the echoic drum machine to the droning reverb, all bound together by the vocal glossolalia – the similarities are manifold. Kennedy Ashlyn’s superb soprano deserves real attention and, bearing an uncanny resemblance to Elizabeth Fraser, threatens to steal the show entirely. But the beauty of Them Are Us Too is the way in which they function as a composite structure. Cash Askew’s ethereal…
  • Akiine – Destiny (Premier)

    24 Feb 2015 | 1:33 am
    We fell in love with Akiine (born Akiine Kivelä Ngarambe) when she released Sunglassey more than a year ago, and now we’re rather privileged to premier the similarly excellent Destiny. Destiny is a soft and sultry 808-leaning track, with a muted, mellow vibe that we have come to love from the Swedish songstress. The deep bounce should see this flooding the dancefloors with the lights down low very soon. To celebrate the new release, she’s paying the Old Blue Last on 3 March with labelmate Bewilderbeast, which sounds like quite the night. Akiine has signed to the wonderful…

    We’ve got something little different for you all today from La Priest, a name we haven’t seen since he did a 7″ on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy label back in 2007, which is forever ago. La Priest is Sam Dust, formerly of Late of the Pier, a man that has always had a sound all to himself, and that is never more true than on Oino. It’s a truly imaginative cosmic mix of electro, funk, and prog rock that seems to suit someone who’s spent years in Greenland, studying the effects of the Ivittuut region’s electro-magnetic phenomena on recorded sound. Oino will be…

    We were big fans of Shawondasee‘s Gems of Pure Light when we first heard it last year, and now the Parisian duo have followed that up with the release their debut EP of the same name. My favourite on the EP is Someone Good, which in contrast to the disco bassline on their previous single, is slow and beautifully layered electronica that lets you drift away while sending shivers down your spine. And here’s the whole EP for your streaming pleasure: Shawondasee – Someone Good was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

    by Steven Pisano This winter in New York City has been so unrelentingly and inhospitably cold, so bone-numbingly frigid that a lot of sensible people have just stayed home from exploring the city’s nightlife to catch up on Netflix. Who wants to wander the streets of an urban Antarctica? But things were blazing hot last week at Jazz Standard when Chris Bergson brought his sizable band to town for a two-night stand on February 24-25. Bergson has been playing this club for over a decade now, and his latest recording, Live at Jazz Standard, has been lauded as one of the top recordings of 2014…

    Peter Matthews

    Most of the works on last Thursday's Bang on a Can People's Commissioning Fund concert at Merkin Concert Hall were riffs on some found sound, or other pre-existing music. Which, in itself isn't bad - music has a long tradition of variation writing - but it does leave one wondering if today's composers have lost the ability to write music purely of their own invention.  The concert, hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer and performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars, was part of the ongoing Ecstatic Music Festival, now in its 5th year of presenting adventurous…

    For more than 40 years, Carnegie Hall has offered a series of free Neighborhood Concerts at theaters, libraries and community centers in all five boroughs. For many, these concerts - which run the gamut from classical, to jazz, to world music - are the only opportunity they have to hear some of the same world class music that graces the stage(s) of 57th and 7th on a nightly basis.  Somehow, in all my years of NYC concertgoing, I've never managed to make it to one of these neighborhood concerts. Until last Sunday, when LA's Calder Quartet played a free show at the Brooklyn…

    Over the past year, the journey of the single-copy Wu-Tang album, “Once Upon A Time In Shaolin,” has managed to keep our attention, as the group’s attempt to sell it has seen many iterations. Aside from a very short and distorted clip, little had been revealed about the record until a select group of people were treated to 13 minutes of it earlier this week, and RZA used that evening to confirm it will be their final album together. It also won’t be commercially available for the better part of a century. Taking place at MoMA PS1 on Monday night, a handful of music industry insiders…

For the uninitiated, the short-lived but highly-influential Cherubs emerged out of Texas in the early 90s with a droning, fuzzy, drugged-out sound that incorporated plenty of humor and horror in equal measure.

    THERE has long been a perception that the children of famous parents have it easier than most, but when your father is little short of a living legend, the towering comparative comes with a unique curse. As the son of Leonard Cohen, Adam Cohen has always faced a battle to be taken seriously as a singer-songwriter and not just one that’s in the industry off his father’s legacy. In 1998, aged 26, he released his first, eponymously titled solo album which made little impact. Six years later, he resurfaced as the frontman of a rock band, ‘Low Millions’, that never quite made it,…

Unfortunately the secret got out many years ago—tourism has long been the principal industry here – encouraging a constant crush of admirers, but the preservation orders and bylaws very strictly ensure that the centre maintains its ancient allure. Brussels may be the bustling gateway capital thirty miles away, but Bruges was once the artistic and commercial hub of the whole European…

While Torbay’s sandy beaches and sub-tropical climate have long been highlighted, the region has recently undergone a dramatic refurbishment to shake off the dreary Fawlty Towers tagline that has haunted the tourist board for almost 40 years.

    Zacharias Records - CDs - Athens, Greece   Monastiraki Flea Market - OpenI took a trip to Greece recently, and had our flight back to the States delayed.  This gave me an unexpected extra day in Athens.  So we strolled around the Monastiraki Flea Market and to my surprise discovered a large number of record stores.  The best of the lot by far was Zacharias - off to the side of the main drag, it had an excellent selection both of rock, psych, etc., but also a number of Greek records (as to which I confess I am clueless).  Yes, that was the Velvet Underground on…

    Barry Maz

    Not really a rant this one, more a warning to ukulele buyers out there, but something I am seeing more and more in the world of internet shopping for ukes.Regular readers of the blog will know that I don't believe all is what it seems to be in the world of laminate ukuleles. I despise the increasingly snobbish opinion out there that ALL laminate ukes are a signal of poor quality. (Take a look at the likes of this Kiwaya or this Baton Rouge). In fact I regularly point out that I would rather have a well made laminate like these, than some of the roughly thrown together, thick, heavy 'solid…

  • A Ukulele Handbook For Beginners by Aaron and Nicole Keim - REVIEW

    Barry Maz

    I do like 'nice' things. You know, where somebody has gone that extra mile on presentation of something. That's what immediately came to mind when I opened the new ukulele guidebook by Aaron Keim - 'A Ukulele Handbook For Beginners'.Aaron is one of those performers quietly but widely admired in ukulele circles. Quietly seems apt as Aaron performs with his wife Nicole as an act called 'The Quiet American' playing 'old time American folk music for modern times'. I'm not sure if he took the name from the Graham Greene novel (but I certainly hope so!).... Anyway, get back on track Barry.So Aaron…

    It has actually been a while since I ranted on this blog on this subject, but it seems that people still get me wrong on this subject. So, what do I really think about the whole 'strumming pattern' discussion?First off, if you are of the view that, 'that Baz from Got A Ukulele HATES strumming patterns', then, frankly you are dead wrong. And if I may say so, what a bizarre suggestion. You see, I use strumming patterns all the time - everyone does if they strum. Whatever you are playing you are strumming something of a pattern. It might be rigid and simple, it might be more freeform and…

Bruce and Marie’s music is usually bursting with so much joy and optimism. This new track is a perfect example of what you can expect from the band. In my opinion, Freedom Fry is at their best when they lean more on the Americana sound. They won me over when they incorporated it into 2012’s Outlaws…

These past months have seen Antix’s inclusion in the MTV Brand New shortlist, breaking the Music Week Urban Charts Top Ten, and support from the likes of BBC Introducing, Record of the Day and Spindle Magazine. In addition, his music videos (250K+ views) have seen acclaim with numerous hip hop sites. The lyrics of new release ‘Come Home’ shun the bravado and materialism of many of his…

  • RIP Lesley Gore (1946-2015)

    19 Feb 2015 | 4:32 pm
    The Ed Sullivan and SOFA Entertainment are deeply saddened by singer Lesley Gore’s passing.  Born Lesley Sue Goldstein on May 2nd 1946 in Brooklyn, NY, Lesley got her start at only 16 years old, after being discovered by producer Quincy Jones in 1963. Gore recorded her first hit “It’s My Party” soon after signing with Mercury Records, where Jones was an A&R man. The song immediately became a success and overnight Lesley Gore turned into a star.  “It’s My Party” raced to No. 1 on the charts, was nominated for a Grammy and sold more than 1 million copies. Over the next two…

    The Ed Sullivan Show was very saddened to learn of the passing of legendary singer Joe Cocker. From an early age, Joe was inspired by American rhythm and blues artists like Ray Charles and Chuck Berry. Joe Cocker appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show on April 27th 1969. That night, backed by his “Grease Band,” he sang a full-throated rendition of Dave Mason’s “Feelin’ Alright.” Just a few months later, Joe Cocker would appear at the Woodstock Festival, singing his now infamous cover of The Beatles “With a Little Help From My Friends.” Cocker took the…

  • Celebrating the Activism of Harry Belafonte

    20 Nov 2014 | 12:46 pm
    On November 8th The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the body that issues the Oscars, honored the legendary entertainer Harry Belafonte for his life-long devotion to humanitarian activism. Belafonte is an American treasure, whose career made him among the first crossover African-American stars while simultaneously being one of show-business’ most politicized. On stage, screen, and recordings, Belafonte was affable and very appealing, bringing the Caribbean musical style of Calypso into the mainstream, most notably with his famous interpretation of “The Banana Boat Song.”…
  • Remembering the Life of Ed Sullivan

    admin
    13 Oct 2014 | 6:09 pm
    Forty years ago today, Ed Sullivan, who hosted the show that bore his name for over two decades, passed away from esophageal cancer. Ed Sullivan, born a New Yorker in 1901, was for many years part of an elite circle of Broadway columnists who was read by insiders and outsiders alike. In this capacity he made connections with some of the top names in show business. Having already broadcasted on radio, this put Sullivan in a good position to move into the new medium of television. He developed his program, initially called Toast of the Town, with his producer Marlo Lewis and was originally…

    Clark TerryLast week, as I logged into my computer I saw the headline that caught my attention: Legendary Jazz artist Clark Terry dies at 94. As I read the news item, it seemed almost surreal. Clark Terry lived so long I began to believe I would never see such a headline. Nevertheless, we are now faced with the reality of the loss of another great artist. Since I read about Clark Terry’s death, my thoughts went back to my childhood, long before my teen years to time spent with my father. My dad, a jazz trumpeter himself, introduced me to the music of Clark Terry long before I began to study…

    Becky GJust a few weeks ago I was having lunch with a friend when we both met another mutual friend and her 9-year old daughter. The friend whom I was eating with spoke with the little girl about school and games of today. Their conversation got around to the music of today when the girl asked my friend if he enjoyed a particular modern artist. He responded by saying “all of them sound the same today”. He continued by stating that he “could easily interchange them and would not know the difference”. The little girl said nothing more, except goodbye and left with her mom. As for me, I…

    UsherMost of you reading this weeks’ blog post are doing so during or after the 57th Grammy Awards. This year has offered some controversial nominations and therefore, will bring about some controversial winners. Throughout the years I have had conversations with musicians and music lovers about the merits of Grammy award nominations and wins. Most feel that the awards have become too commercial, and winners are based less on musical talent and more on record sales and popularity. I enjoy such discussions because there are various ways of interpreting musical art. Therefore, the opinions…

Several bloggers have mentioned in the past that sometimes it becomes necessary to take a break in order to recharge your batteries. I never felt that way before and really did not feel that way as I approached last week. However, the small change in routine gave me an opportunity to really reflect upon the past years and examine how far I have moved ahead. Now that my brief hiatus has passed, I realize how good it was to…

    It's always tough to figure out how much to charge an artist or band that's not on a label for your services. Here's an excerpt from my Music Producer's Handbook that looks at the 5 different ways to charge a client for your production, engineering or musical services, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each."What if a local band asks you to produce or record them? What do you charge if they’re not attached to a label? There are a number of approaches that you can take, although none will have you retiring to the Bahamas anytime soon. You can:Charge a flat project fee. How much…

Nope, it's the real deal.A study published in the Applied Animal Behavioral Science journal found that many animals respond favorably to specific types of music, especially cats.Researchers at the University of Wisconsin found that when played a specially prepared piece of music "...cats showed orientation and approach behavior toward the speaker with the cat music, rubbing against the speaker while the music was on."This might sound like a bunch of hokum, but there's actually some science involved here.

It's the signature sound of Michael Jackson's biggest hits as well as records by Queen, Sade and ABBA, among many others. Now you can have that sound at your fingertips with the new Harrison 32CS channel strip.The 32cs features that good old transformer coupled mic preamp along with switchable high and low pass filters. What's interesting there is that the high pass filter has what Harrison calls a "Bump" switch that provides a boost right above the selected cutoff frequency - perfect for kick or…

    27 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    The band Foreigner is still around and going stronger than ever, but much of their current touring is based on past hits like "Double Vision," the song that we look at today. Here are the isolated vocals from that big hit, which reached #2 on the Billboard charts in 1978. Here's are some things to listen to (it starts around 0:20):1. Take a listen to the long delayed reverb on the verse vocals. This is muted in the choruses so the vocal feels more intimate.2. The chorus features a doubled lead vocal up the center, while the harmonies are panned to the outside.3. You can clearly hear a punch…

    VIA IMPOSE: The duo of Justin Stivers and Justin Gonzales met through a drunken Craiglist post—one the former bassist of the Antlers (Stivers) and the other long involved in the Brooklyn music scene. What came out of this musical in vino veritas-style meeting led to Pet Ghost Project which eventually ran its course and has reformed as Passenger Peru. A mainstay of Fleeting Youth Records‘ (excellent) stable, Passenger Peru just released their second full-length, Light Places, a meandering and sonically diverse twelve-song encapsulation of the occasional macabre aspect of aging.

    2 Mar 2015 | 11:22 pm
    Here is the infectious first song from Van Dale's forthcoming s/t album due out March 31st (cassette/digi) on Fleeting Youth Records.  Van Dale's highly infectious self-titled album is full of Blue album-era power pop and fuzzed-out tunes about friendship, love, success, and thinking about what life isn't.Van Dale is a rock trio from Columbus featuring two members of Way Yes. Van Dale’s approach is as back-to-basics as it gets, deploying drums, bass, and loads of guitar in the pursuit of melodically charged alt-rock straight out of 1994.Pre-Order

  • Pale Angels- If Only You're Gone

    2 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    Transatlantic punks Pale Angels are back with their second LP, Imaginary People. "If Only You're Gone" is a noisy, shambolic dose of garage punk that rips as hard as everything we've heard from the band thus far. Recording with a former member of The Men makes sense here, as anyone who dug that band's Open Your Heart era will probably dig this too. Of course that also means fans of The Replacements, The Gun Club, or any handful of SST's mid-'80s bands may have a soft spot for Pale Angels as well.

    Today's version of compare and contrast is a little bit unorthodox -- namely, today we're comparing two songs with the same name rather than artists. Enter: "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye (featuring Kimbra) versus "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield.You are, without a doubt, quite familiar with Gotye's 2011 single -- it took the radio waves by storm upon release. But have you heard Seth Avett (of the Avett Brothers, duh -- he's the one with the hair) and Jessica Lea Mayfield's song? They're currently touring in support of their Elliot Smith tribute…

Thank goodness for a snow day and Noisetrade, because I'm never taking these fellas from Seattle off my radar.Listen to their latest single, "All This Wandering Around," and you'll be on the bandwagon with me. Then watch their trailer for their upcoming album (It's All Just Pretend drops May 5!!) and get even more excited.Did I mention that there's a set of brothers in the band?

He said: "I read on the papers that he got on stage at the Grammys and said to Beck, 'You should respect artistry and give Beyonce that award.'" "That **** needs to look up the description of the word 'artistry'. If Beck, the player of…
  • Iggy Azalea relieved not to win Grammy

    4 Mar 2015 | 8:38 am
    Iggy Azalea thinks people "hate" her. The 24-year-old rapper felt relieved when Eminem's 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' won the 'Best Rap Album' Grammy Award at the ceremony last month because if she had won it for 'The New Classic' she believes she would have received lots of abuse from people who dislike her. She explained: "I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, 'F**k this. I don't want it, take it. Get it away from me'." "People already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more." However, the 'Fancy' hitmaker - who recently unveiled the video to her new…

  • PR Skills: How to Write a Musician Biography

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

    Steven Fies
    9 Feb 2015 | 8:28 pm
    Sweeping through some arpeggios with my original DH pickFor the past fifteen years, I have been extremely sensitive about the types of guitar picks I use when I play. In fact, using a particular type of guitar pick is so important to me that I'll normally go to just about any length to have my Jazz III Ultex (when playing electric guitar, at least). You can read all about that in the article I wrote about guitar picks a little over two years ago.Enter the Original Dragon's Heart Guitar Pick.Discovering Dragon Heart Guitar PicksShortly before NAMM, Dragon's Heart guitar picks got in touch with…
  • The Revival of Pop Rock Music with Harrison Nida

    Steven Fies
    3 Feb 2015 | 9:56 am
    When I first learned to play guitar, the very first song I learned to play was What's My Age Again by Blink 182.  Back in those days, I couldn't get enough of bands like Blink 182, Green Day, Nirvana, and Weezer.  In fact, I still can't get enough of those bands, because I've always truly enjoyed their sound and have tons of nostalgia from listening to them in my youth.  This is true even as my musical tastes have evolved and changed through the years.  The only problem is that it's difficult to find new artists still producing decent work in this genre.Enter Harrison…

  • 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…

    DJ Zane Lowe has announced his new employer will be Apple. He will be leaving the BBC Radio 1 after 12 years of nurturing his radio show to be a loud enthusiastic romp through new music discovery. His candid interviews of some of the biggest names in music are top-shelf also. Neither Apple nor Lowe have said what his position will be. The speculation that Apple is seeking big talent in the music-influencer category is an obvious one. As we’re waiting to see what Beats Music becomes, adding Lowe to their arsenal of curators is nothing short of a victory. Hiring Lowe may be an indication…

The new service will be based on Beats Music technologies but the interface design will be all Apple. Apple will “deeply integrate” Beats into iOS, iTunes, and Apple TV.

  • 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…

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.

  • The oddest musical collaborations that shouldn’t have worked but really did

    Aimee Davis

    So by now we’re all well aware of the odd collaboration that has somehow happened between Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and the award-interrupting, opinion-on-everything Kanye West. But what other musical collaborations have happened throughout musical history that caused us to do a double take and simply say ‘really?’! From award shows to tracks actually recorded and released, first up on our odd radar is… Take That and Lulu Yep, the boyband of the 90’s (and 00’s) paired with 60’s icon Lula. We’d love to have been a fly on the wall when Gary…
  • DISCOVER: Naked Woods

    4 Mar 2015 | 12:29 am
    Naked Woods is the work of Hungarian singer-songwriter Eszter Polyák. If you like Bat For Lashes, boy are you in for a treat. Based in Budapest, Naked Woods explores a heady mix of orchestral vibes, a classical wide-ranging vocal and modern effects for an exquisite brand of lo-fi chamber pop. Eszter released her debut album on New Year’s Eve in 2013, with the simple aim of ticking off her bucket list but the Hungarian blogosphere got wind of it, she was a semi-finalist in 2014’s International Songwriting Competition, and hasn’t looked back.

What it high notes were just another note in the line of your voice that you had no problem hitting and you didn’t have to really think about it?

Blur’s last album, Think Tank, was released in 2003, but they’ve spent much of the last few years teasing a follow-up, with Damon Albarn saying as far back as 2012 that “there will definitely be another Blur album.” Initial recording started in Hong Kong in 2013, although the tracks were temporarily shelved till November of last year. The album was produced by Stephen Street (who also produced Modern Life Is Rubbish, Parklife, The Great Escape, and Blur). Here’s a video for first single, “Go…

Been there, done that etc.etc. It’s just that when I hear records like this I miss playing, tripping over leads, banging teeth off a microphone, nudging the guitar volume up bit by bit after every song. Most of all I miss the satisfaction when you’re lost in the middle of the bedlam, the deafening, almost indecipherable noise you’re creating that probably makes no sense to anyone other than yourself.

It was extremely well received gaining critical acclaim in pretty much every review you can find for it (read Overblown’s here).

There’s a lot going on across it’s 13 tracks, in particular a lot of hurt and anger. Musically it dips into various styles but mainly joins the dots between indie-pop and…

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

    Gabriel Moreno, is a painter and illustrator based in Spain, I liked Gabriel because he is -in a nutshell- what I like about illustrators, black and white images with color splashes, great detail, suggestive but not explicit, creative but within the limits of perspective and understanding, easy to digest. He has a website and Facebook site where you can […]

    Alexis Ren (1996), is an American model of German/Russian descent, she is currently based in LA signed with Nous and Chic Model Management agencies, it looks like she will be one of the big “top models” in a couple of years. She is definitely my new favorite; sorry Emily Ratajkowski and Emily Didonato you have been dethroned :) […]

    Shohei Otomo (覚覚鹿鹿, 1980), is Japanese based illustrator specialized in oil painting, his work combines traditional Japanese with modern futuristic western items, which -from my standpoint- summarize the global contemporary Japanese Culture; this mix reminds me of some anime like Black Lagoon and some movies like Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill or the early Bruce Lee‘s Enter the Dragon. Violence, substance […]

  • The Responsibility is Yours?

    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…

  • Valentine’s Day Dinner Around the South Bay

    11 Feb 2015 | 11:02 am
    This year Valentine’s Day attaches itself to the start of a weekend and will probably be a running theme through Sunday. For the uninitiated, Valentine’s Day is this Saturday, February 14th. A little preparation is key since reservations are crucial at most restaurants serving a special meal for that special someone. If you’re in dire need of a game plan that doesn’t sack your wallet, just split an off-brand bottle of Italian wine from Trader Joe’s with your date and then adjourn to the top of Old Tony’s fish-bowl bar for some steely views and groovy tunes.
