    'Senseless,' the debut FIXT single from Richy Nix, is an all-out cross-genre explosion from the Detriot-area based artist. With mixing from Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada) and programming from Celldweller, the song spits fast verses and contains addictive choruses. Quote: "Senseless" 'is about the struggles of being the underdog or always having people doubt you. It's over coming the lack of support, finding the strength you need within yourself and giving your all at whatever you do." - Richy Nix 'Senseless' is the first track to be released off of Richy Nix' upcoming…

    I grew up in Atlanta, and there was a trail that went through the woods that led to the back of a shopping center housing a grocery store — one named Big Star, that I would soon find employment in bagging groceries at 15. As such, I took this trail a lot, having no idea […]

    (CC-BY) David Hilowitz. Record Store Day has come and gone over the weekend. But 2015 will surely be remembered as a year in which Record Store Day did less to increase the visibility of vinyl records so much as to increase the visibility of how much everyone has grown to hate Record Store Day. And that seems it’s time for a post mortem – and a call to action. I watched closely the reports from this weekend, just to see if there was anything positive – and there was. For every Foo Fighters (Grohl was this year’s ambassador, weirdly), there’s something with more…

With Q1 sales complete, overall sales stand at 9.93 million.  March of 2015 was easily the largest volume month of the year with sales at 1.537 million, well above the 1.251 million we saw in February.  For the auto sector, year over year comparisons are getting challenging.  The trajectory of growth is not as steep as it once was,…

    This is excellent – and not in my usual line of musical vision.  Tuneful, haunting, melodic, catchy and reminiscent in the best possible way of what I loved in the early ’80’s.  Jenn Vix, who has previously been recognized by Rolling Stone, releases this wonderful new single, aided and abetted by ex-Cure drummer Andy Anderson and guitarist Mark Montalto, to deliver a memorable track that I can’t get enough of.  Her voice is striking; warm, enveloping and emotional.  And the intesting nuance is in the production, where it doesn’t sound “over-retro”…

    For the latest chapter in the ongoing saga that is la telanovela Calexico — Edge of the Sun, out now on Anti- Records – let us begin at the finale and work our way backward. Album-closer “Follow The River” begins with the most familiar of sounds: Joey Burns’ shuffling acoustic guitar, John Convertino’s careful and inventive percussion, upright bass, a weeping pedal steel. A line or two creeps into the frame, “Shadows are calling, and I’ve been down all day/ The city’s asleep but my mind keeps running astray/ I dream of you in the falling rain.” Then, Burn goes for the…

    A widowed mother and her young son deal a monster haunting their every move in the frightening Australian film The Babadook.  First Time director Jennifer Kent proves to be an expert in scaring the shit out of viewers, as this is the most intense film I’ve seen since The Conjuring. But don’t take my word for it; when Stephen King and William Friedkin lend their name to the promotional materials, you know that this film brings the goods. The Babadook isn’t just a horror movie, though; it’s also an emotional film about parenthood and grief with a surprise ending that may anger…

    I have a Billy Preston story. It seems like a distant dream sometimes, but it really happened. Really. Billy was born in Houston, but moved to L.A. as a young child. By the age of ten he was an accomplished organist, backing gospel legends like Mahalia Jackson, James Cleveland, and Andrae Crouch. A year later he was performing “Blueberry Hill” on Nat King Cole’s TV show, and a year after that he appeared with Cole in the movie St. Louis Blues, the story of W.C. Handy. At the tender age of 16, Billy was touring in Little Richard’s band. That must have been quite an…

So much of their music is based around place and themes that a live show always seemed like the perfect medium for the group to express their vision to the fullest. The LA group makes music that transports the listener to distant lands and takes them on journeys to places never ventured to before. The accompanying media for their new album, Strange Trails, is impressive, making it one of the few albums that can boast that it’s supported by a comic book and features songs…

    If you want to control Ableton Live from an iPad, you’ve loads of options. If you want to control Traktor – not so much. The best all-in-one option is Traxus Control, which is free (though it requires Lemur). Now, one app does everything. The same app has modes for both Ableton Live and Traktor – meaning you can tote one iPad and be ready for both the live set and the DJ set. And on the Traktor side, you get fluid integration with Native Instruments’ DJ software – ironically, when NI themselves have no such controller app. And the advantages are clear: no room to…
  • Here’s Why the New Version of the Free Ardour 4 DAW is Great

    Peter Kirn
    21 Apr 2015 | 7:55 am
    It’s easy to make an argument to any cash-strapped producer that a free DAW is good news. And it’s easy to convince a free and open source software advocate that a free-as-in-freedom DAW is a good thing. But that’s not enough. If we’re going to talk about software, let’s make sure it’s worth using. Ardour, the free and open source DAW, has always been powerful. But it hasn’t always been seamless to use – especially outside of Linux. Ardour 1 and Ardour 2 were incredible feats of engineering, and some people used them to make music, but…

    (CC-BY) David Hilowitz. Record Store Day has come and gone over the weekend. But 2015 will surely be remembered as a year in which Record Store Day did less to increase the visibility of vinyl records so much as to increase the visibility of how much everyone has grown to hate Record Store Day. And that seems it’s time for a post mortem – and a call to action. I watched closely the reports from this weekend, just to see if there was anything positive – and there was. For every Foo Fighters (Grohl was this year’s ambassador, weirdly), there’s something with more…

Regardless of how great your music is, it’s absolutely necessary to promote yourself in this manner.  Performing live is the most cost effective form of quality promotion and marketing.  It gets results and builds a solid fan base.

Complete with a music video and real promotion to back it up, Mad tells of Betty’s and Bongo Dog’s trials and tribulations in trying to get a record deal. If anything, it’s a unique twist on the process of trying to get a record deal that so many artists desire. Perhaps somebody out there can relate?

This tour is a celebration of its very nature. Webster Hall's audience was ready for that and sang along on those catchy, cutthroat choruses: "We're all just walking abortions." [Nicky] Wire leapt and paced, pounding out big round notes. Bradfield pogoed about the stage and never missed a solo or buzzsaw riff. And Moore, an underrated drummer in the annals of…

    If there were a decisive blow delivered in the rivalry between downtown and uptown New York, it would be the former stealing the Whitney Museum away from the latter and placing it in the heart of the Meatpacking district. When the new Whitney Museum opens on May 1, there are a few things you can expect. 1. Nothing about Renzo Piano’s new building reeks of “statement” architecture. Rather, it is a measured, industrial-elegant structure, which decisively puts the focus on the art. 2. Spread over eight floors, the new Whitney has 18,000 feet of indoor and 13,000 feet of outdoor…

The Sandcastles moniker is a ruse for a revolving cast of friends who she might ring up to do a house show here or there, but for the most part it’s been a project used to work on her songwriting and open-tuning guitar picking inspired by John Fahey. She started down this road during a particularly lonely moment in her life before she moved to Seattle and got the La Luz light lit. Enough of this exploration has added up…

    I ran into the provost of Berklee College of Music today. He asked me how the semester was going. Given the relentless snowstorms that Boston endured at the beginning of the semester, I think he may have been bracing himself for my response. However, he needn’t have worried (if he was). I truthfully told him, “it was going great, that teaching is my bliss, and that it’s what I get to do.” I genuinely do feel lucky that I am able to teach. I feel like I get to do it. As I walked to class, I thought about the distinction between things I have to do versus what I get to…

In that post, I briefly mentioned that doing so not only increases your productivity, but it largely renders backups to things like Apple’s TimeMachine irrelevant. In this post, I want to put a finer point on that statement, by discussing how I set up my new mac without restoring from a TimeMachine backup or using Migration Assistant.

I’ve been holding off on upgrading my old faithful late 2008 MacBook Pro 1, for a looong time now in anticipation of these new machines. Along the way I’ve been pretty diligent about backing up 2. Nevertheless, a 7 year old machine will get some kruft happening, and I didn’t want to transport this to a new machine via restoring from a TimeMachine backup or using Migration…
  • Too many Audible credits? Put it on hold and catch up

    George Howard
    13 Feb 2015 | 6:55 am
    I really like Audible – the downloadable audiobook store owned by Amazon. We’ve been Gold members for many years, paying $15 (promotional rate) per month, which entitles us to one audiobook per month. As it turns out, we don’t download one audio book per month. Audiobooks tend to be more occasional for us; we don’t think about them until we want one right now – like when we’re about to take a car trip. This type of use case really works better with an ala carte system rather than a membership approach, but buying audiobooks ala carte is expensive…

  • Advocacy and pedagogy in secondary school singing

    Alice
    23 Apr 2015 | 3:30 am
    Music as a school subject, it so often seems, retains its apparently perilous position in the school largely as a result of the unstinting pressure of advocacy groups. The 2004 Music Manifesto that underpins much of the current drive to keep school music alive was unashamedly “a voluntary, apolitical 13-strong Partnership and Advocacy Group”. Personally, I find this slightly challenging because I was fortunate enough to attend a school during the 1960s where advocacy was quite unnecessary. The important position of music was never doubted within a curriculum organized along classical,…
  • Six features of hip hop poetry

    Marisa Carlucci
    20 Apr 2015 | 5:30 am
    Hip hop has increasingly influenced a new generation of American poets. For instance, the current issue of Poetry excerpts poems and essays from the recently published anthology, The BreakBeat Poets, edited by Kevin Coval, Quraysh Ali Lansana, and Nate Marshall. In the anthology’s introduction, Marshall asserts: This is the story of how generations of young people reared on hip-hop culture and aesthetics took to the page and poem and microphone to create a movement in American letters in the tradition of the Black Arts, Nuyorican, and Beat generations and add to it and innovate on top.

    Taylor Coe
    19 Apr 2015 | 1:30 am
    Recently reading through the Notes and Discographies section of Greil Marcus’s book Mystery Train (first published in 1975), I was struck by Marcus’s meticulousness when it came to recommending records. When remarking on “Rock A Little Baby,” a 1958 single by rock pioneer Harmonica Frank Floyd, Marcus is kind enough to observe in a footnote that the album can be ordered by mail from Down Home Music, and goes on to provide an address for the company and even a telephone number. Instead of all that, I pull up Google, type “Harmonica Frank Floyd Little Baby,” find the song on…
  • A Jazz Appreciation Month Playlist

    Ayana Young
    18 Apr 2015 | 1:30 am
    Established in 2001, Jazz Appreciation Month celebrates the rich history, present accolades, and future growth of jazz music. Spanning the blues, ragtime, dixieland, bebop, swing, soul, and instrumentals, there’s no surprise that jazz music has endured the test of time from its early origins amongst African-American slaves in the late 19th century to its growth today. Often characterized by improvisation, syncopation, and usually a regular or forceful rhythm, jazz is commonly played on brass and woodwind instruments, pianos, guitars and violins, sometimes accompanied by smooth melodic…
  • Nostalgia and the 2015 Academy of Country Music Awards

    Raquel Fernandes
    16 Apr 2015 | 3:30 am
    The country music tradition in the United States might be characterized as a nostalgic one. To varying degrees since the emergence of recorded country music in the early 1920s, country songs and songwriters have expressed longing for the seemingly simpler times of their childhoods—or even their parents’ and grandparents’ childhoods. In many ways, one might read country music’s occasional obsession with all things past and gone as an extension of the nineteenth-century plantation song, popularized by Pittsburgh native Stephen Collins Foster, whose “Old Folks at Home” (1851) and…

    How many times have you heard someone say they don't like Nickelback? As the biggest rock band in the country, they are also one of the biggest targets, but findings from a new study suggest that many Canadians, possibly even you, secretly love them. AccuRadio, an internet streaming service started in 2000, mined its data to gauge Nickelback listening per capita, breaking it down by province. The findings are interesting for a number of reasons. For one: Alberta, where the band originated, does not top the list. In fact, it comes in third place with 5,554 plays, which is closely behind…
  • Joyce El-Khoury stars in the first complete performance of Les Martyrs since 1840

    Gaetano Donizetti's opera Les Martyrs has a troubled history. After the King of Naples banned Donizetti's original Italian version, Donizetti transformed it into a French grand opera for Parisian audiences, complete with the obligatory ballet in the first act. After a number of delays, the opera premiered to basically positive reviews, and promptly disappeared from the repertory.  On the rare occasions that it has been performed, Les Martyres has been truncated or sung in its original Italian. But, last November, the full French version roared back to life in a concert presentation at…

    If you're worried about losing your love of new music, your fears are justified. That's according to new research that finds listeners reach "maturity" around age 33. In other words, you're done with discovering new music when you reach your mid-thirties. The study compared multiple sets of data, including the age and gender of Spotify users, their parental status, and the overall popularity of artists. The study found that teenagers listen almost exclusively to the most popular artists, but their tastes evolve steeply into their mid-twenties, and then slowly until they level off in their…

It's Easter weekend, in my faith, the celebration of Jesus' resurrection, and the parallels are too obvious not to mention. Ben fully embodied the life, the music and the voice that lives on. The family has had a year to process and come to terms with Ben's passing from brain cancer. There is a strange relief that without a doubt he is no longer suffering. He left a big universe of love from friends whose lives he deeply impacted, and that is now…
  • Listening to Tight Voices? Danger: It can Tighten Your Own

    Judy Rodman
    30 Mar 2015 | 9:20 am
    Whew.. even just looking at this pic makes me cough...Be careful what you listen to. You know that phrase 'you are what you eat'? Well, your voice tends to mimic (be) what it hears (consumes). If you stop and think about it, the way a baby learns to talk is by listening to other voices. Not only does the child learn language, he/she also learns and assumes the inflections, tone, rhythms and other nuances and characteristics of the voices it hears most often. These different vocal tone and nuance choices are created not only by the shape, density and size of the larynx and resonators…
  • 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...

    The colors your voice chooses determines the message heard.Masterful vocal performance and great acting have many parallels. For one thing of course, acting usually involves the voice to some degree. But did you know that to use the voice effectively requires certain acting skills? The third cornerstone of Power, Path and Performance vocal training involves a deep understanding of acting technique. Without it, the voice is useless.ActingIf you've ever had a good acting coach or director, you will remember that acting is very much about making choices. Even with a script and directing…

I miss Amiri Baraka. I miss his ferocity, his observations, and his powerful artistic expressiveness. I miss him tapping the side of the podium, keeping time to an imaginary metronome, improvising his own horn, or making sure the horn player (when there was one) was on time. I miss the faces of the young people in the crowd while Amiri Baraka was reading.

Good drama often has these qualities, and at its best is not simple. Garrett Bradley’s first feature film is all of these things, and more, with a journey and visual style that keeps your eyes and attention span totally engaged. The narrative follows three very different young millennial characters newly arrived or returning to new Orleans: Elliott, a New York City native in search of who he believes is his one…

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.

  • What Happened to Prince?

    Peter Lee
    10 Apr 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Yes, it's my third post in a row on Prince. I just read two biographies of him (a third is on interlibrary loan), and the hyperfocus part of my ADD is in overdrive. Bear with me. I recently listened to Prince's entire catalog as I read his biographies, trying to put each album in context along with his recording process and his frame of mind during that time. And the same thing happened as it did back when I was growing up: After 1987, the quality of his musical output suddenly plummeted. Everything after Sign O' the Times  - with the exception of a handful of songs here and there - was a…
  • Top 5 Prince Covers That Were Better Than the Original

    Peter Lee
    7 Apr 2015 | 11:47 am
    Prince has been a very generous songwriter. He's given away hundreds of songs to artists (mostly his protegé groups such as the Time, the Family, Sheila E. and Vanity 6). Others have decided to cover his songs, and most of the time a cover isn't as good as the original. But in a few cases, the cover is better than Prince's original effort, to the point where some Prince originals are almost unlistenable, especially after years of hearing the cover. Here are a few covers that surpass what Prince initially put down on tape: Any song by The Time - In demos, Prince apparently dictated exactly…
  • Prince’s Greatest Album: Dream Factory

    Peter Lee
    2 Apr 2015 | 6:16 pm
    It's a shame that Prince's greatest album was never released. In the 1980s, Prince reached his commercial peak in 1984 with the smash album and movie Purple Rain. He followed that up quickly (and rather unceremoniously) with the eclectic and disjointed Around the World in a Day, which left many fans scratching their heads. But it was a giant step forward musically, with the Purple One embracing the Paisley Underground scene, the late 60s psychedelic sound, and even world music. His next album, Parade: Music from the Motion Picture Under the Cherry Moon, was more accessible, featuring the #1…
  • Desert Island Discs: ‘Disintegration,’ the Cure

    Peter Lee
    25 Mar 2015 | 2:01 pm
    If you're ever deserted on an island, with little hope of rescue, you'd want albums that would keep your spirits high and help you hope for the future. So I have to admit that Disintegration would make a lousy album to have with you; within two weeks you'd hang yourself from the nearest palm tree, or bash your head in with a coconut. Disintegration is spooky, sometimes angry, but most of the time it's extremely depressing. The BBC described it as "taking a long bath in someone else's despair." That being said, it's one of the best albums of the late 1980s, it cemented the Cure as The Goth…
  • 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…

    We cannot take our eyes off the eerie umbrella-holding human figures that dangle seemingly in mid-air in the 7,000 square-foot (650 square metre) office of ad agency Fold7 Farringdon (Clerkenwell, London). The figures were created by Czech artist Michal Trpák who has used similar humans-with-umbrellas themes, most notably in his large-scale work, Slight Uncertainty, installed in an office complex in Prague in 2012. In Fold7’s office, the humans float in the entrance area of the ad agency’s premises located in a refurbished 1980s office building. The sheer volume of the…

Small Tea extolls the benefits of real human connection via the consumption of tea under a canopy of 1,250 boxes wrapped in abaca or manila hemp, a type of banana-tree fiber used for baskets in some tea-growing areas. We, of course, notice the elegant use of wood and wood slats, and oval and rounded accents, all of which helps evoke a…

In 2014, there were more than 5,400 earthquakes in the state, hundreds of them with a magnitude of 3 or above. According to a recent report released by the United States Geological Survey, Oklahoma is just one of eight states identified in the report (also Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Ohio and Texas) where earthquakes are becoming increasingly common, at least partially because of oil and gas drilling practices. Oil drillers often inject polluted wastewater deep underground, which…

    Former One Republic member Tim Myers gets set to release his new project, The Unknown.

The leading single “Are You Ready for Me” has already generated significant buzz and been featured on Showtime, MLB TV, Brooklyn 99, General Hospital and a host of other TV shows.

    1 Apr 2015 | 10:48 pm
    Over the past eight months I have tried three different co-working spaces as a way to get out of the house, followed by working in a number of cafés around Hanoi. Hanoi's co-working community is just kicking off - there's some exciting projects on the horizon but at the moment it's all still fairly nascent. A long way off from London's 70+ co-working spaces. It's given me a fairly solid idea of what I don't want in a co-working space, as well as some tenuous pointers as to what I do want. Here's a checklist of things that Future Me will be looking out for in community spaces. Not for me But…

    or Just Because Something Doesn't Apply To Me, Doesn't Mean it's not a Valid Concern When I recently critiqued a job listing site for forcing a "Full Name" on a user when signing up, someone thought an appropriate retaliation and refutation of my complaint was that I wasn't mononymous myself (an appeal to hypocricy/tu quoque?). Aside from the various reference materials on how to approach user names and personal names on the web (including a W3C reference article), it's surprising how often websites still force people to use their full names when doing so is completely unnecessary.

    In the past few weeks I have joined two different Slack groups with about 2000 users each. Within the context of transient & ephemeral communication - communication that ultimately disappears - free Slack groups fit a niche somewhere between IRC (super transient) and Reddit (pretty static comparatively). There have been a lot of words spilled about why ephemeral communication is the future of social media. I don't think I need to add to the mountain already out there. Within the context of chat vs. commenting, Slack is real-time and immediate. I'm not aware of as many words spilled on…

  • Vintage Torch Songs for Your Summer Crush

    Alison Nastasi
    25 Apr 2015 | 10:27 am
    Today marks the birthday of the “Lady of Song,” Ella Fitzgerald. Famous for her silky voice and successful jazz standards, Fitzgerald knew how to bring tears to audiences’ eyes with her achingly beautiful renditions of popular torch songs. In honor of the Queen of Jazz, we’ve rounded up other weep-worthy, sentimental ballads from the 1920s that sing of lost love and other romantic dilemmas we can all relate to. Turn to these tunes while you’re busy crushing on that someone special from afar or licking your wounds following a summer fling. Helen Morgan, “Why Was I…
  • Watch The Replacements Play New Song “Whole Foods Blues,” New Recordings, Book, and Movie Teased

    Alison Nastasi
    25 Apr 2015 | 6:52 am
    After more than two decades pioneering alt rockers The Replacements are back on tour. But the band is busier than we realized, according to a new Billboard interview with co-manager David Hill. There are “seven or eight songs that may or may not see the light of day,” but one new song made its debut during the group’s Hollywood Palladium show, called “Whole Foods Blues.” As the name suggests, it’s a snarky and bluesy track about shopping at the healthy supermarket chain (aka Whole Paycheck). Also teased are two vinyl box sets (the Twin\Tone years, including Sorry Ma, I Forgot to…

    Matthew Hickey
    24 Apr 2015 | 10:45 am
    This latest single “Colors” by NYC-based VÉRITÉ is the very best sort of pop music. It’s big, bold, and uplifting. A shuffling, percussion-heavy tune draped in dirty, grinding synths, it hits hard from the first beat and absolutely bursts at the chorus. It was produced by MSMR’s Zach Nicita and appears on VÉRITÉ’s forthcoming Wasteland EP. It’s OK if you’re feeling a bit starry-eyed – we are too.

    Matthew Hickey
    22 Apr 2015 | 9:30 pm
    Bashed Out, the third full length from Paris-based songwriter Kate Stables (better known as This Is The Kit), is a morning album. Like the sunrise, it is infused with warmth, subtlety, and restrained energy. It’s bright, optimistic, and moves at a very deliberate pace. Indeed, each note, each ringing cymbal, each cold swipe across the strings of the violin on opener “Misunderstanding” (for example) is precise, judicious in presence, and essential. The same could be said for each track on the album. Indeed, with its crisp, mostly acoustic instrumentation it’s easy to…

If I were to choose my last meal, it would very likely be breakfast. If push came to shove, it would always be sweet (though not cloyingly so), but I’d throw in a side of runny eggs and cured salmon for good measure. At home, I indulge myself and my family in baked treats regularly because I can substitute in healthy flours and reduce the sugars and I have to be honest, when I’m away from home, breakfast is the meal I miss most.

The device plugs into a standard power outlet and lets you turn the light on and off with a single touch.

Eleven’s editor-in-chief, Evan Sult had this to say this morning when he heard the news “All the love and respect in the world to Anne Tkach. Her music is woven…

    For two years and three albums, Foxygen has been the perfect way for Jonathan Rado and Sam France to break all the rock’n’roll rules. But will the band survive their latest trick? by James Kane Mercurial psych-rock songwriting duo Foxygen rose to prominence in 2012 the way most bands dream of. On the night the demos for what would become their first full-length were finished, they were handed to a super-producer who signed the group out of the gate. They had a team behind them. They booked ambitious headlining tours. Jonathan Rado (keys, guitar) and Sam France (vocals) were young then —…

    Thursday, April 2 Ready Room In their last two St. Louis performances, South Carolina’s Shovels and Rope mesmerized packed houses at Off Broadway, first while opening for Dawes, and six months later as headliners. On April 2nd the husband-and-wife duo of Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent move their passionate country stomp to The Ready Room. They’re overdue for a bigger space to contain the power of their lusty, spontaneous act and the fevered response from their fans. Sweeping the 2013 Americana Music Awards with their second album, “O’ Be Joyful,” the pair are touring to support…

    Demetri Martin’s show at the Pageant on March 26 opened on a somewhat realer note than he might have been anticipating. As he eased into his greetings on-stage, he asked the gathered crowd what was new in St. Louis these days. That was his first mistake. His second mistake was waiting long enough for someone to actually answer. “They’re killing black people!” some clearly-overserved patron bellowed from stage right. “Wow, um… I did not prepare any material for that,” Martin said, and whether his awkwardness was genuine or it was simple showmanship was…

  • …Even more music festivals.But not what you’d expect.

    Jan Ramsey
    22 Apr 2015 | 4:35 pm
    Yep, it’s the Jazz Fest: the big grand-daddy of music festivals rolls again this weekend. It’s changed from what it used to be, this is true. Stuff changes. But the general spirit is still there and will be for a long time, assuming Festival Productions can continue to balance the dyed-in-the-wool Louisiana music and cultural stuff with the AEG-booked big-name acts that keep heads coming through the gates. One thing we can say for sure is that despite the bitching and moaning that we’ve been hearing for years regarding the change in the talent pool, the adjustment in the types of acts…
  • Rain, Rain, Go Away

    It’s been raining for a week. Take a deep breath. Hold. Release slowly. Just over a week left for Jazz Fest. It’s imminent… The Jazz Fest staff just moved out to the Fairgrounds. Hopefully, the weather gods will cooperate. The poor French Quarter Fest suffered through a weekend of rain, and although it was a great French Quarter Festival, attendance was way down. That’s the problem with outdoor festivals: you’re at the mercy of the elements. It’s rained every day since last week, and as I write this, I hear thunder heralding another very wet afternoon and evening. In fact, we…
  • Shocking Scientology

    Jan Ramsey
    8 Apr 2015 | 6:50 pm
    The church of Scientology was skewered recently in the recent HBO documentary “Going Clear.” If you don’t subscribe to HBO, you’ve missed a lot of very good documentary reportage, including the shocking conclusion to “The Jinx” which pretty effectively outed sociopath multi-millionaire Robert Durst as the murderer that he probably is. Knowing very little about Scientology, but having heard about the organization for years, I thought it would be an interesting introduction to the religion it purports to be. It appears to be a money-making cult that has sucked many millions of…

    Don’t we need one of these? Not as many people have been around music as a business for as long as me, and just like everything else, the local club scene has changed drastically. I’ve written about this before, but an email from a bar owner uptown started me thinking about it again. Almost 30 years, when I was still a major club rat (oh, yes, I was), I spent most of my time at venues uptown: Tip’s, Le Bon Temps, the Maple Leaf, Jed’s (that changed into Muddy Water’s), Carrollton Station, Jimmy’s, Tyler’s Beer Garden, some places I can’t remember the names of, and a few…

If anyone is interested in coming to New Orleans for the music, well, festival season is coming upon us pretty fast. Concurrent to the first weekend of Jazz Fest (April 22-26) is Festival International de Louisiane in Lafayette, and that’s a whole other world of music. Look, I didn’t get into publishing a music magazine for nothing: music permeates…

  • The Tallest Man On Earth: Dark Bird Is Home

    admin
    14 Apr 2015 | 8:03 pm
    Kristian Matsson starts out in familiar territory on this one, the title track to The Tallest Man On Earth’s next album, Dark Bird Is Home. “Sagres” felt like a “Song For Zula”-esque turn toward echo and synth-washed sounds, but the Swedish troubadour goes back inward this round. Until the coda, that is: an unexpected, jubilant rush that makes the previous solo-acoustic minutes feel like a contemplative run-up toward some kind of assured transcendence. Underneath any such pomp and circumstance, though, is a fine bit of indelible melody from the…

    admin
    14 Apr 2015 | 7:22 pm
    “The Glow” was the first track among four on our introduction to Esmé Patterson last spring. And while that unfolding arrangement from Woman to Woman did the tune justice in studio form, this live take — featuring Paleo‘s David Strackany on a ramshackle drum kit — lets the cut breathe further, filling it with even more awkward pauses and dynamic nuance. This tune was inspired by Brian Wilson’s “Caroline, No,” and there are other men-penned love songs that warranted a fresh take on her debut here. Patterson & co. are on tour with…

    Even without knowing the album’s unabashed bohemian mission statement, words like “celestial” spring to mind on these tracks from Portland’s Johanna Warren. But they also conjure up something more personal and haunting than what she calls a dedication to the phases of the moon. “Figure 8,” “True Colors,” and “Less Traveled” aim inward as much as they pull from the heavens, recalling the intimacy of Nick Drake, Sibylle Baier, and Sam Beam, as much as broader-minded luminaries like Joni Mitchell and a long list of British…

    These cuts move well enough without the recording backstory, but dig this: Tom Brosseau and John Parish (longtime PJ Harvey collaborator, Sparklehorse producer, and all-around underrated genius) put the whole record live to tape, the 5-piece gathered around a single microphone, Sun Studio-style, in Bristol, England. Brosseau says, If the drums were coming across too loudly, the drummer would have to move his kit a plank or two of the stage back from the mic. If the bass needed to come up, the bass moved a plank towards the mic… There’d be no overdubbing, no raising or…

    “Here’s a story…of a lovely lady.” “Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip” “Boy, the way Glenn Miller played” “Come and listen to a story ’bout a man named Jed” “Da-da-da-dum, <snap, snap>” “Space…the final frontier.” Sound familiar? Those words, and many others, are forever embedded in the brains of baby boomers and viewers of retro TV cable channels because they represent the days when television theme songs were an expected and essential part of the entertainment world.

  • “Ascension” Brings the Emotion to Trailers

    SAV008, Ascension, is an intense, shockingly emotional, multi-section hybrid trailer-focused release that features an 80-piece orchestra. Packed with massive percussion, sound design and choir, this new release from Sound Adventures is the latest trailer triumph from composer and producer Timo Spekkens. Timo graciously made time to talk to us about this release, and here’s what he had to say: Ascension was recorded partly in Budapest. Can you tell us a bit about how you wound up there and what the experience was like? We had recorded our previous orchestral projects in Vienna with the…

    Focus groups, demographics, overnight ratings all have value in providing data to those who like to make decisions based on data.  But once in a while, somebody makes a decision based on a gut feeling and enjoys success beyond anyone’s imagination. Case in point: A young performer, Chris Janson, who is becoming a regular at the Grand Ole Opry is introduced to 4400 folks when he walks onstage. They’ve never heard of him, because he’s had no significant commercial success. When he walks off, about 4 out of every 5 times, he gets a standing ovation. He is genuinely entertaining – a…

  • HEALTH’S “NEW COKE” MP3 WILL MAKE YOU PUKE

    Andy Fenstermaker
    24 Apr 2015 | 10:24 pm
    30 years ago today, Coca Cola launched its ill-fated New Coke. While that was a major fiasco, I sat down to determine if, thirty years later, the newly released song of the same name by LA nosie-rock outfit HEALTH would follow suit. I had pretty much discounted HEALTH as somewhat of a fad. Their eponymous debut in 2007 was lauded by many, myself included, despite it being a bit brazen and eccentric (and, at times, somewhat unbearable to anyone over 23). And the remixes that followed were, and still are, truly sublime. Their follow-up, Get Color I largely ignored for whatever reason.
  • Best Album of 2015 So Far: Eternal Death’s New Self-Titled LP

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

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

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…

    Click here to read the full story: The Music NinjaSet for release on the Crosswalk compilation album, “Fascination” is a sensual original from the beat maker Sebastian Carter. He decided to go in on a cool house track with Aela Kae, whose vocal work on the song is purely angelic. Although it’s deep, the style is a little shifted from what we usually hear from the young European producer. Needless to say, we’ve been fascinated by this guy before, and with this new one, we are exceptionally so. A dreamy sequence of sounds make up “Fascination,” which is one…

    GOT A UKULELE - Leading ukulele blog for the beginner

  • Going Electro Ukulele Should Cost You MORE Not The Same

    Barry Maz
    22 Apr 2015 | 2:13 am
    There seems to be an awful lot of discussion at the moment in social media circles about people wanting to amplify their ukuleles. I see this generally as a positive thing as I suspect it means they are wanting to perform live. I say 'generally' because amplifying just for the sake of volume is probably not a great reason, but there you go.I have talked before about amplification options so I won't repeat all of that here. In short though you have a couple of main choices - either to use a microphone in front of the instrument (and that will give you hands down the most authentic tone…

    Surprised myself that I have never done a simple top tips for ukulele beginners post. So, considering I like lists, let's have a go at that.1. Try to 'Try Before You Buy'.If you really can, do try to at least visit some kind of music store to have a feel for the ukulele. Play the different scales and listen to their differing tones. Listen to their volume and clarity of tone. Trust your own ears in what you buy! For some though, stores are just too far away, and that is where impartial review sites are just for you! This video will probably help you too.2. Keep it simple to start withWhen you…

    A new brand for me, and quite a looker. Brought to you by Snail Ukuleles, this is their UKS-220 Rosewood Laminate Soprano.Snail brand ukuleles are fairly new to me. In fact I have been aware of them for a couple of years, but don't think they were being widely distributed in the UK. That now seems to have changed, and this is available from Omega Music where this one is on loan to me from.The UKS-220 is a pretty standard shaped and sized soprano ukulele built from laminate wood with a rosewood outer veneer. It comes in at a penny under £85 and includes a gig bag (more on that later).First…

Most from a similar background understand and appreciate the wisdom given to us by our circle of influence. One of the terms I heard constantly in my household was “common sense”. In many instances those words were not used in a positive way: “Didn’t common sense tell you the right choice?” Of course common sense itself does not possess any abilities to effect change, but the parental point…

It is necessary in order to provide the best commentary possible. However, many ask me what type of music, or artists, I choose for my individual listening pleasure. Well, my listening habits still tend to be quite varied, but I do have my favorites. One artist that has found her way into my listening preference is Arika Kane. Not to be confused with Erica Kane, the character portrayed by Susan Lucci…

  • Michael Jackson "Rock With You" Isolated Vocal

    Bobby Owsinski
    24 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Here's a song that was considered one of the last hits of the Disco era. It's the isolated lead vocal from Michael Jackson's "Rock With You" from his 1979 Off The Wall album. The album featured 5 hit singles and went on to sell more than 20 million units worldwide. "Rock With You" went on to be a #1 hit in the US.Here are some things to listen for. The recording is a bit distorted, but I'm pretty sure that came from the copy and not the original master, knowing how precise engineer Bruce Swedien (the Godfather of modern recording) is.1. Notice the lead synthesizer when it enters in the intro.

  • 6 Auditioning Tips To Get That Tour Gig

    Bobby Owsinski
    22 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    It's the dream of many musicians to get a gig with the touring band of a major artist, but getting the audition is a lot easier than getting the gig. Here's an excerpt from Chapter 5 ("Becoming A Touring Musician") of my Touring Musician's Handbook that provides some great audition tips from some of the top touring musicians."Depending on how you look at it, an audition can be really fun or so stressful that it makes you want to loose your lunch. The more prepared you are, the less likely you are to do the latter, so here are a number of things to help you through the process.1. Know The…
  • An Album Made From Guitar Center Doodlers

    Bobby Owsinski
    21 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Anyone that's ever gone into a Guitar Center on a Saturday afternoon knows that it's a cacophony of sound. You'll hear just about every famous lick being played by mostly beginners all at the same time. It's difficult not to get a headache after about 10 minutes (I don't know how the employees stand it).New York experimental artist Noah Wall saw the beauty of it though, and decided to record some of these musical doodlers and compile it into an album. I guess the big question here is "Why?" but you have to admit there's something oddly familiar about the recordings.Have a listen to a track…

    Bobby Owsinski
    20 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    The Slate Pro Audio Raven has made quite a name for itself in a short time thanks to its revolutionary touchscreen technology control of Pro Tools. The latest version, the Z3, takes the concept to the next level.The Raven Z3 differs from previous versions in that it has 3 multi-touch screens instead of 1. The main control surface is the standard 46" multi-touch panel (the same as found on the Raven MTX), with two additional 27" screens (as found on the MTI) on the wings mounted in a custom console.Thanks to the new Raven 2.5 software, Raven can now control most popular DAW packages, including…

    30 Mar 2015 | 6:06 pm
         Thurl Ravenscroft is a name that doesn't conjure up images of a star, but his voice became an indelible sound in the ears of children for over 50 years....      Thurl spent much of his time as a singer, with The Sportsmen, then after World War II, The Mellomen. That group in particular were very successful singing backup vocals with a host of stars from pop in the early to mid-1950's, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, Frank Sinatra and Elvis as well as a large number of ads for radio and television.       His deep base…

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

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

    Vomitface, the Jersey City/Brooklyn based trio, aren't quiet as repulsive as their name may suggest (though are every bit as self-depricating as their lead single and EP's title would suggest), but they definitely wallow in a good deal of filth. The band are getting ready to release their new EP Another Bad Year via Boxing Clever Records on May 12th. The band’s seething noise punk meets grunge and post-hardcore sound incorporates all that is loud and heavy with their own brand of deep self deprecation and sardonic attitude, though the songs are catchy and filled with subtle pop hooks…

Mum, I’m sorry. ‘The Wombats’ return with album number three ‘Glitterbug’ this week and for the first few minutes of the release my above statement would appear to be completely out of context.  Such is the quality of opening track ‘Emoticons’ a deep nod of respect claws its way out of my usual doubting soul. It’s so completely different to anything the band have ever released and utterly refreshing. Simply put its how indie-pop should be. It sparkles and contains those…

The follow up to 2013’s debut ‘Major Arcana’ is certainly progress from the Massachusetts 4-piece. The song writing is stronger throughout and there are more of those poppier moments that we were teased with on the debut. This album wasn’t about releasing a like-for-like, a copy of their debut. This is progress on every level but while still being able to hold…

Once gain the artist shuns the loud, brash pop of her Canadian Super-group to release a stunningly beautiful collection of songs that far outweigh the content of her first two albums. Calder’s first two releases were chalk and cheese. 2010’s ‘Are You My Mother?’ was a mournful slow-tempo ode to her dying mother while 2011’s ‘Bright and Vivid’ was equally as reflective but was partnered with synths and electronica. For her self-titled third solo outing the artist has…

  • Innovation And Uniqueness Meet With Zeus The Songwriting Instructor

    Steven Fies
    15 Apr 2015 | 10:08 pm
     It seems like a lot of people have taken a good look at the music industry lately and they definitely don’t like what they see. Record sales are lower and lower each day and artists have to rely on their ability to sell merchandise and tickets for their shows. This is something that leaves a lot of aspiring musicians feeling discouraged, but the biggest problem in the music industry is not the industry itself. The problem is that most artists seem to be stuck in the idea that they have to “stay true” to their art and create music that they like. This is the reason why 99% of the…

    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…

    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…

    European regulators are investigating Apple for its plan to bundle music streaming with its existing iTunes platform. The speculation is that Apple will release their music streaming service, which is based on Beats Music, in June. Assuming subscription only, with no ad-supported tier, European regulators are “said to be concerned that the company will use its size, relationships and influence to persuade labels to abandon free, ad-supported services such as Spotify, which depend on licenses with music companies for their catalogues.” Spotify argues that its free ad-supported…

    David Harrell is a musician in the indie rock band the Layaways which has self-released four albums. He reports that Beats Music payed out an average of 1.801 cents per stream from his December 2014 CD Baby account. His graph below shows the difference between the current Beats Music payout and average Spotify payouts (0.428 cents) for the last few years. It is not surprising Beats Music is a higher rate. Spotify averages two tiers of users — paying subscribers (high rate) and free users (low rate paid by advertising). Spotify’s average payouts will naturally be lower than Beats…

    Making the Guitar Fun to Play(Guest Post by John Henry Sheridan)As anybody who has ever tried playing the guitar knows, learning to play the guitar can be difficult, slow and tedious (especially in the beginning)! That is why I believe it is of the utmost importance to make it FUN right from the start! Here are three ideas on how you can make the guitar more fun to play in your daily life.1) Learn easy songs on a single string. Have you ever felt frustrated when trying to make sense out of all of those different strings? There are lots of cool YouTube videos out there that can teach you both…
  • Guitar daily exercise routine (for intermediates)

    Francesco Settesoldi
    7 Apr 2015 | 3:48 pm
    Here's a daily guitar exercise routine I've created especially for intermediate players. There is not an absolute way to define what an "intermediate" is. For example, I am an advanced player when it comes to rhythm guitar/singing, but I am an intermediate at blues soloing and a beginner at jazz. Which basically means I won't dare playing jazz if you put me in front of an audience, and I won't even indulge into extreme soloing, which goes beyond my actual skills. But give me a guitar and a microphone and I can Pop/Rock you for hours with absolute confidence.If you do have the ability to…
  • How to learn a Guitar Solo

    Francesco Settesoldi
    6 Apr 2015 | 5:33 am
    The biggest mistake you can make when learning a guitar solo, is trying to play it all at once. I don't care how skilled you believe you are. If you are interpreting a solo created by someone else, you'd better segment it into small pieces and learn it piece by piece.Here's what to do, step by step:1 - Listen to the whole solo at least 10 times. You must know every single part of it.2 - Segment the solo into 4,8,12,16 parts (depending on the length of the solo, numbers are purely indicative)3 - Practice every single part at SLOW speed until you master it.4 - Practice every single part at…

    What does it mean to learn to sing naturally? It’s a great question for one, but it also raises another question – why would you want to sing naturally, and what happens if you don’t? Also if you can sing naturally, then you also must be able to sing unnaturally as well! The word “naturally” is used in many ways to convey something good, and in singing it is no different. If you can learn to sing naturally, then you should enjoy a lifetime of singing. You don’t have to lose your voice or have your range reduced as you get older. In this article, I want to…

    Andy Barnes

    Speech level singing, if you haven’t heard of it, is a technique that teaches that singing should be as natural and easy as speaking. Now, I think we can all agree that speaking is a natural and easy thing to do, and while I do believe that you can sing freely and easily, there are some things about singing that differ greatly to speaking, which we will explore later on. While speech level singing has certainly been around for a while (at least 30 years), and there is no doubt it has benefited many people, there are gaps in speech level singing itself that I would like to address in…

    Glasgow fuzz pop duo’s debut LP Stand Still And Rot  out May 19th It’s inevitable when you craft pretty awesome fuzzy guitar-centric pop that the comparisons will start to come. Suffice it to say that Pinact sound like they came straight out of the 90s American alt rock explosion alongside Lemonheads, Weezer, and Nirvana. This is definitely no bad thing as they pull the whole enterprise off with aplomb. While previous single, ‘Anxiety‘, was a galloping lo-fi pop punk track, ‘Up and Down’, veers into fuzzy alt rock ballad territory sporting Juliana…

    There’s a great little indie label running out of Minneapolis (home of Husker Du and The Replacements) at the moment. Named Landski Records, it is run by the charming Drew Forsberg, and has recently reeleased two stellar EPs by Deleter, purveyors of epic post punk. Carrying on in the spirit of the 80s lo-fi DIY music scene, the label has uncovered a number of gems right in their back garden. Landski’s newest exports are the dark and seductive Murder Shoes. Songs range from murder ballad-esque intimidation to surf/noir pop and they have a new self-titled EP (produced by…
  • Jack O’Rourke Shares ‘Silence’ In Aid Of Amnesty International

    22 Apr 2015 | 12:25 pm
    I went to an all boys secondary school of 750 pupils. Not one of them was gay. Obviously, this statistic is ludicrious, but it reflects the hostile environment that was presented to gay people growing up in Ireland in the late 90s and early 00s. I imagine that many gay boys in my school had to present a public face to protect themselves. I liked rock music, and had long hair, and at times it was tough for me. But I could at least be myself in public, I can only imagine what it must be like to lie completely every day for fear of reprisals. Jack O’Rourke, an up and coming Irish singer…

    If you are regular reader of Overblown, you will know that we are on a bit of a shoegaze buzz at the moment. First, there was the Ear to Ear Records free compilation, and then Ryan Hickey’s exploration of Japanese Shoegaze. It’s a genre that seems inexhaustible. Now, we’ve got Canadian shoegazers Slow Down Molasses, and their single ‘Home’, which follows their single released last year, ‘Summer Sun’. It’s a delay drenched track, that mixes the shimmering sound scapes of My Bloody Valentine with the dreary ruminations of Ian Curtis or Bernard…

  • Broiled Bok Choy with Balsamic Reduction

    S Lauren
    21 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    Broiled bok choy is fast and far from furious. It takes 5 minutes to make and uses only 6 ingredients. 3 of those being salt, pepper, and olive oil. Yes, this is simple stuff. I find that the older I get, the more I prefer simple food. I think it is because I gravitate towards quality over quantity, and the simpler the food, the more apparent it is how much thought went into what I’m tasting. A simple marinara at an Italian restaurant is a great example. I’ve had my fair share of lousy pasta sauces that taste overly sweet, salty beyond compare, or metallic. But I’ll…

She was at the market gathering 8-10 bunches of bananas and was asked what plans she had for them. She answered with dreams of banana bread and smoothies. What she didn’t list was banana soft serve ice cream. When the suggestion was made, her eyes filled with question and wonder, and proceeded to inquire how such wizardry could be conjured in the kitchen. If there is one person in this beautiful world that doesn’t know about this technique, then it is worth a blog…

    Spring is in the air! It has been for a while now, but it’s April, and the flowers are in full bloom. We haven’t been getting any rain this season in Southern California, but hopefully that will change soon. When the weather shifts from winter to spring, I tend to snack more and sit down to larger meals less. When I spring-snack, I want it to be delicious and satisfying. The other day, I came up with an appetizer or snack that I think is perfect for that winter/spring transition: sweet potato crostini.

In theory, you could have a picture of just a male nipple taking up the whole frame, and it would be a-okay (but just be sure to label it “male nipple” so the public…

I don't feel for him in the sense that he's had to listen to this music, but because he's had no choice and this period of hip hop bliss was capped off with Action Bronson's Mr Wonderful.If you ain't know, Bronson was a chef, now a rapper and one of the very best in the game right now.

    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…

  • The Perfect Mix

    Michael Musco
    19 Apr 2015 | 12:03 pm
    Over the past couple weeks, I've had a thought running through my head that I can't seem to shake. It's an elusive question, and is a serious mental exercise. The idea of what makes a perfect mix. It seems like a pretty basic question, but the more I thought about it the more I realized the answer to that question is more of an enigma then something that could be easily answered. If you've read a few posts of mine, you will know one thing about me, and that is I am kind of a numbers person. I'd say the reason I am that way is because numbers are quantifiable, and if you can make sense of…
  • 5 Reasons to Avoid Using Free Royalty Free Music

    Michael Musco
    5 Mar 2015 | 4:44 pm
    I've been spending a lot of time recently researching techniques to get better SEO results for my website Musco Sound. Part of this process is looking at what potential customers are saying and what type of re-occurring themes are occurring. One of the biggest questions I see online are "where can I get free music for..." followed by people sharing free music resources. You might think this makes me mad, but really it doesn't. A lot of the times I just feel bad because going after free music for any type of project has the potential to end badly.You would think that a lot of this type of…
  • Deconstructing an Approved Stock Music Track

    Michael Musco
    5 Dec 2014 | 5:55 am
    A lot of times when a new music producer asks me to listen to their music, I have noticed a fairly common issue. In a broad sense it's a problem with the mix but more specifically it is more the levels and sounds of different instruments. I was guilty of this too, and it takes a little time, experience and practice to understand what sounds good alone, and what sounds good in a mix.Sometimes I like to think of it as a musical caricature problem. What I mean by this is that if you think of a kick drum, and the sound of a kick drum, how does it sound to your ears. A lot of newer producers want…

They are arguably on of the best marketplaces for after effects/motion templates and stock video, but as a musician my main focus is on their music category.I have been a music contributor with Revostock for a number of years, and they are a great agency to work with.

  • The Music Industry Isn't Broken...It's Changing

    Michael Musco
    3 Dec 2014 | 7:37 am
    I hear a lot of talk about how the music industry is dying, and maybe it is. That doesn't mean music is going away, or that musicians will stop existing. Musicians have existed for hundreds of years and from the time of Beethoven till now musicians just have to adapt to the change. From my perspective this is the best time EVER to be a musician. The walls that were put in place by the big labels and high level industry players are being broken down, and the opportunities that indie musicians have are enormous. This is a great time in the history of music to be a musician, so maybe the current…

Then someday I'll work my way to the darker, bug infested corners looming at the edges my mind. Waiting for their time.

Two big lights came on above the audience pointing in on us: the band, the full stage, our gear, the interview chairs, the desk with the famous blue late-night coffee mug positioned at the edge. A camera swung between me and the audience. It had only been one song. A few minutes. A few heartbeats. Not even long enough to get nervous.It's so much easier for me to take any big performance, show, festival, TV, if I can focus on one spot. One person. One object. My Drishti. Play there and only there. Let the crowd…

    With True Colors set to release next month, May 19th to be exact, it was just a matter of time before Zedd revealed the tracklist for his sophomore album. While it unfortunately doesn’t give us any clue as to who will be collaborating with him, we can at least start to get some kind of idea as to what the EDM superstar has in store for us. Kicking off the disc are the already released “Addicted to a Memory” and “I Want You To Know.” Following those tracks are 9 unreleased songs. However, seeing as there’s still several weeks to go before the album drops,…

Full of uplifting synths and an almost tropical vibe, it’s a definite departure for the boys, but a welcome one nonetheless. As for the visuals, we see Chris and Alex travelling the globe as they visit exotic locations such…

    When British producers manage to break away from the inexorable house music tunnel vision that so commonly plagues them, they tend to leave a respectable mark on whatever other genre lands in their crosshairs. Rich Lonbay A.K.A. Daktyl captured the attention of bass music tastemaker Diplo with his ambient, experimental brand of chill trap/midtempo/future bass, and as a result, his Cyclical LP came out through Mad Decent. The ambitious body of work ultimately marks the starting point of Lonbay’s journey to perfect his own unique sound, and as evident as his efforts to that end may be, to…
