    Sam Hunt‘s success has not come without controversy. Traditionalists in the country world are adamantly against his pop/R & B sound. That sound is making him a very popular crossover hit in other genres. And I’m sure his good looks aren’t hurting him either. Even though Sam is enjoying the …

    LISTEN audio The Tallest Man on Earth Dark Bird is Home Stream to May 12 Kristian Matsson, who performs under the name The Tallest Man on Earth, is a Swedish folk musician who's drawn favourable comparisons to Bob Dylan for his affecting, abstract lyrics and raspy, cracking voice. Like Dylan, he draws from the great pillars of folk such as Guthrie, Seeger, et. al and uses that as a means to explore themes that are both existential and universal. On Dark Bird is Home, his fourth full-length album, Matsson comes out from behind the lyrics and pens his most personal, confrontational album to…

    Downtown Boys are a Providence, RI six-piece consisting of Adrienne Berry, Joey L DeFrancesco, Emmett FitzGerald, Norlan Olivo, Victoria Ruiz, and Dan Schleifer. They describe themselves as a "bi bilingual political dance sax punk party", but their mix of brittle spiky guitars, urgent tempos, blurting saxophones and frontwoman Victoria Ruiz's tuneless and frenzied shrieks makes them sound more like a completely disorienting mess on the verge of imploding on itself at any given second. (If that's your idea of a party, then dive right in.) They've been around for about three years now, but it's…

    With Zane Lowe pedestalling the first glimpse into Bensley’s diverse soundscape, Fandango was a precursor for this forthcoming debut. Next Generation is a bold move; with drum & bass being a genre which has certainly stood the test of time, newcomers have incredibly big shoes to fill. However, Bensley incorporates an innovative and incredibly intricate set of production skills to hold a title of his own. But what can you expect from an artist who was signed after sending a single demo to revered label head Andy C. That’s despite having no previous releases or having any other music…

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…

    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…

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…

    Talk all you like about the “feeling” of something physical, something tangible, about having a real object, about ownership. There’s a cold reality behind selling physical goods: it’s hard. Before you can sell something, you need money to buy the physical stuff you want to sell. Digital “solves” that by making the good intangible, but in the material world, you need materials. Before “capitalism” came to mean some complex international system of speculative markets, this, of course, was what we meant: you got some capital to start a business…

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…

    In my last post on this topic, I discussed how you could create a redundant synchronized version of all the important files on your mac via Microsoft’s OneDrive, Google Drive, and CloudHQ. 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. This post is less an argument against backing up the…

    With Apple’s recent announcement of forthcoming new (MacBook) and updated (MacBook Pro and Airs) machines, I was prodded to examine how I wanted to migrate my data to one of these new machines. 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…

  • The “Blurred Lines” of music and copyright: Part one

    Miranda Dobson
    28 Apr 2015 | 12:30 am
    Possibly the highest-profile copyright case of the past 12 months centered on a trial between the creators of the catchy tune, “Blurred Lines”, and the Marvin Gaye estate over the song’s supposed similarities to the 1977 hit, “Got to Give it up”. The jury’s decision to award the Gaye family $7.4 million has been met with some consternation in both law and music circles, with Pharrell Williams reportedly telling the media that this verdict spells disaster for the creative industries. We asked two Oxford authors to give their opinions on the case in this two-part…
  • 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.

    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…

    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…

The track, from her Polaris Prize-winning album, Animism, is at first set to images of Tagaq in the city, flipping through shots of the subway, the street, blowing snow — all at night. As her throat-singing comes in, the images move faster, framed by Tagaq’s parka so we know she’s still guiding us. The city gets blurry. The image of a woman applying makeup dissolves into that of a decaying skull. Tagaq’s Hollywood star seeps…

  • 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- 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...

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?

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.

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.

  • 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…

    Jayvee
    27 Apr 2015 | 11:44 am
    Nate Ruess, frontman for Fun., took to email to update fans on his current solo project and released new single, “AhHa.” The singer noted that lots of assumptions were being made about his upcoming solo album, Grand Romantic, as a result of lead single “Nothing Without Love,” which is why he offered up “ahHa” as a means to “keep people guessing” about the sound. Ruess went on to explain his love of “ahHa” by saying, “It’s 3 or 4 songs rolled into one, and in my mind, the perfect opening track for the whole album (the…

    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…

  • Flavorwire Premiere: HUMANS’ Fuzzed-Out “All My” Explodes in VHS Splendor

    Shane Barnes
    27 Apr 2015 | 8:15 am
    Canadian producer duo HUMANS hardly sound organic on their second full-length album, Noontide, but the overtly electronic sounds at their disposal still manage to convey soul. Their newest video — for the brief, pulsating “All My” — is no different, its VHS medium betraying the fact that the whole thing was, at its core, mechanical. Yet the scene it captures — fireworks in Spain — shows a whole lot of human jubilation. Perhaps that soul is there because the video wasn’t made by the band, or anyone associated with the band. It was not a business decision. The…

The filmmakers obviously disagree, saying they “came on board with the full…
  • Vintage Torch Songs for Your Summer Crush

    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…

    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.
  • This Is The Kit – Bashed Out

    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…

    Despite the very limited space in my kitchen, I’m particularly fond of my breakfast vessels and gadgets because I am particularly fond of breakfast. 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. But it’s…

It’s the kind of track that would have fit in well on the soundtrack to Perks of Being A Wallflower or The Breakfast Club. A slightly outdated sound that seems to have come back around to be back in fashion. This new track is the latest to emerge from the London based 4 piece, following impressive…

    You find gems like this every now and again, and it excites you because you realise there are some very talented people out there making music for the sake of expressing themselves in an art form. That is the feeling I get when listening to ‘Ballet’, the new single from Samuel Ford. Ford intertwines immediate melodies and literate lyrics with intricate rhythms that soar from the darkest chasms to atmospheres of uplifting melancholy. A talent that plays double bass, cello, guitar and piano/keyboards as well as writing, arranging and notating all of his own music. New track…

    Review by Adam Pain Recommended – 4 out of 5 Get your copy of Rise of the Super Furry Animals I’d never really got into the Super Furry Animals. It’s not that I didn’t like the music – on the contrary, much of the material I have heard over the years always struck me as being both visceral and a little bit bonkers; one of my all time favourite combinations – more that I’d never found the right activities for them to become the soundtrack to. SFA were always a band I had a respectful admiration for, but had never invested enough time to truly become a fan. So, when the…

It’s one of the best feelings and I have to say that MisterWives have done it, which is not a bad start for a band’s career on their debut album. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them play live twice now, so I’ve been anticipating this album for quite a while and let me tell you, it doesn’t disappoint. ‘Our Own House’…

Check out the interview with Bear below: 1. What has had an impact on you over the past few years to bring you to this place now, both personally and musically? Personally, Bo and I have gone from the lowest point in our relationship to the best we’ve ever been as bandmates, friends, and, most importantly, brothers within just a year.

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 —…

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…

    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…

    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

    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…

    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…

    “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…

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…

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.

    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…

    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.

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,…

    Barry Maz
    27 Apr 2015 | 1:16 am
    Here is a ukulele name that I have heard of over the last year, but not actually played until now. They have a pretty massive range of instruments, but this one comes from their lower end. The Lani LC-55MOCEQ Electro Concert UkeLani sounds suitably Hawaiian, and tries to look that way too with their logo of a lady with an exotic flower in her hair, but these are actually made in China and the range is developed by a company from Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire. Quite a mix! But that Chinese origin means the price can be very low and this is available for about £105.Let's start with that…

    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…

Here we meet Analogue Wave, an Electronic duo from Dublin Ireland, comprised of Del Chaney (Vocalist & Songwriter) & Andrew ’Gint’ Sneyd (Producer & Songwriter). The band’s distinct style has roots in a variety of genres including dub, electronica, synth and rock. But the overriding stylistic feature present in all of their tunes is a satisfying and definitely nostalgic throwback to the 1990s. They emerged on the scene in March 2013 by self-releasing their debut single…

Much like almost all of the tropical/tribal indie pop bands that were coming up a few years ago, Bravestation have moved away from the warm percussion and cocktail ready ambience into a more grown up, mature style. RIP to the original sound, but I really am enjoying the new direction the band has taken on Haven. The single…

Sophie Morgan is an 18-year-old a singer songwriter from Widnes (Cheshire). She started performing aged nine, performing an Evanescence song in her local theatre and after that she was hooked. There are four of her tracks on Amazing Tunes – all wonderful, here is Not The One To Blame, a buoyant piano driven pop ballad.

  • Tara Priya – Friends Like These

    rightchord
    22 Apr 2015 | 11:29 pm
    This is more than a melting pot of styles it’s a warm gooey gorgeous ganache, effortlessly melding elements of jazz, soul and the irresistible head-nod grooves of ‘90’s hip-hop, Tara Priya has created a sound that’s classic, contemporary and totally original. It’s ghetto soul with a western electronic bent that enraptures from the first listen and calls to mind the likes of Morricone and J Dilla at times and the cool, laid back vibe of a smoky speakeasy at others. Born in San Francisco to a Persian mother, the niece of much-lauded poet and modernist painter Sohrab Sepehri, and…

  • Learning To Live With Change

    Edward Reid
    26 Apr 2015 | 12:52 pm
    Flyleaf"Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes"The quote above by American writer/counselor Hugh Prather seems to fit the majority of people today, and any day. We all struggle and sometimes fight against change for years, then when it comes and we feel we have adapted, we are faced with the possibility of making more changes. Some say that change is good for everyone. That might be true in some cases but not when a negative change comes into our lives. Good changes are almost always associated with personal growth. At some time in youth, all of us have faced, or will…
  • That Common Thread

    Edward Reid
    19 Apr 2015 | 2:24 pm
    CommonAs a person who grew up in the inner city Chicago during the 1970’s, my parents, and surrounding group of influential family members and friends, passed along wisdom not found in schools. 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…

    Faded Paper FiguresI believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can't truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.Several years ago as I started working in the newspaper industry, a client suggested that I read a book by Zig Ziglar called See You at the Top. She thought it would help me to become a more competent salesperson. Well, she was right. Not long after starting to read the book my sales numbers grew dramatically. Along the way I learned that success meant more than just…

    Azealia BanksI am always amazed at some of the statements people make in public. Sometimes very derogatory, and based on race, religious beliefs and sexual orientation, people are prone to say things that offend others. Now that social media has become the preferred mode of communication, it seems like more folks have found the courage to say anything they feel, regardless the pain their statements may cause others. For those of you reading outside the US, you may or may not be familiar with the laws that govern this country. The United States Constitution guarantees certain rights to all…

    Kat DahliaWhen I was younger my dad said the words I chose for the title very often. Like so many others, perhaps many persons before him, they used the words when it came time for some accomplishment. The wise saying also was an impediment to procrastination. It helped anyone to focus on a goal without wasting time. Another way to look upon these words is great things happen when they should. Ready or not, when the time comes, musical stars burst upon the scene. Earlier this year I happened to read an article in The Examiner that highlighted the point that this most likely is the year many…

  • New Music Gear Monday: PSP L'otary Leslie Simulator Plugin

    I'm a B3 player from way back and I know the sound of a Leslie speaker intimately, so believe me when I say that the new PSP L'otary is the best Leslie simulator that I've come across. All PSP plugins are killer to begin with, but the company might have surpassed itself with this one.L'otary is based on the sound and operation of the two most famous Leslies, the 122 and 147, and provides ultimate control over just about any parameter you can think of, making it extremely versatile. That said, the presets sound great and might be all that anyone ever needs.What I especially liked is the handle…

  • 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.

    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…

    Playing fast doesn’t mean there is no emotion, and having more ‘feeling’ is not a good excuse to never play fast. I’ve probably ruffled a few feathers with that statement, but I believe it to be true. If your thing is playing slowly, then that’s fine; if you like to play fast then that is […]

  • EP REVIEW : Girl Band – ‘The Early Years’ EP

    The Accidental Journalist
    27 Apr 2015 | 1:12 pm
    We’ve been championing ‘Girl Band’ for a while now. Their unique harsh sound has elevated ’Dublin’s best kept secret’ from a pub band to media darlings. Continuing to build on this momentum, and before the release of a much anticipated LP (it should be out in Autumn 2015), Rough Trade have decided to drop an EP containing the bands recent releases, entitled ‘The Early Years’ EP. All five tracks on the new EP are a country mile away from the bands previous 2012 EP release ‘France 98’ and certainly show-case a band who are attempting to create something very different from…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : Du Blonde – ‘Welcome Back to Milk’

    A new name, a new sound and most importantly … a new album; welcome to the crazy, up-side down, ever changing world of Newcastle born ‘Beth Jeans Houghton’ aka ‘Du Blonde’. The transformation from ‘Beth Jeans Houghton’ to ‘Du Blonde’ may seem to some to be an unnecessary one. However, within a few minutes of listening to album number two ‘Welcome Back to Milk’ you get it. This is a complete re-incarnation of not only the name but the music as well. The new name and sound are tied together. The change of music is so different a change of name seems a necessary one. And…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : Blur – ‘The Magic Whip’

    The Accidental Journalist
    27 Apr 2015 | 12:18 pm
    Fate can be a funny thing. While many Asian-based fans were left distraught at a series of cancelled gigs back in May 2013, Blur used the free-time to begin a process of song-writing that would eventually lead to their new but clearly un-planned LP ‘The Magic Whip’. The spur-of-the moment sessions, followed by a sprinkling of Graham Coxon and Stephen Street fairy-dust, have unexpectedly delivered an album containing crisp and spontaneous content that should appeal to fans, old and new alike. Importantly, this album is not a return to the halcyon Brit-Pop days. Those days, and their…

The single is a medium paced grower, showcasing the artist’s wonderful vocals and simple cut-back instrumentation. Its likability is in its simplicity. ‘Field’ is is the modern embodiment of the traveling bard and the singing troubadour. Kyle’s…

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…

    Red-headed siren Jess Glynne is a force to be reckoned with, y'all. The British songstress, who most of you might remember from her crushing solos on "Rather Be," is no longer just the collaborator du jour for your favorite superstars. She's now a captivating solo artist in her own right. Take a listen to her most recent single "Hold My Hand" and hear for yourself. There's no denying that Jess has some major vocal chops. I don't say this lightly, but I hear strains of TIOJ-icon Whitney Houston every time Jess belts out the hook.

Such was the case with Overcoats who are originally from our dear old DC and have moved to New York to churn out this gorgeous, subtly sexy folk music.Now please excuse me while I curl up into my blazer like its a blanket (or, overcoat, if you will) and listen to "Little Memory" with my eyes closed.

     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.

  • The Revival of Pop Rock Music with Harrison Nida

    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…

    A cymbal-smith hammering out a new cymbal in the drum hall at NAMM 2015Winter NAMM 2015 was just as fun and informative as you would expect.  Walking the many large halls of the Anaheim Convention Center, I passed by Stevie Wonder on more than one occasion, had a brief encounter with a playboy playmate (courtesy of Steve Clayton USA), and met none other than the famous comedian Sinbad.  The show also provided a venue to reconnect with old band mates, learn about new software and hardware tools in the audio engineering world, and watch countless musicians exhibit their talents with…

    A 2014 global music report has been released by the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry). For the first time, Digital revenue was the same as Physical (CD’s and vinyl) sales with each having a 46% share. Yes, digital sales and physical sales were both about $6.9 billion USD in 2014. Revenues from music subscription services grew by 39% and has reached 41 million paying subscribers, up from 8 million in 2010. In spite of the growth in streaming, downloads still account for slightly more than half (52%) of digital revenue. Downloading is down 8% from 2013 while…
  • Apple Music Streaming Debated In Europe

    10 Apr 2015 | 9:12 pm
    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…

    In October of 2014, Tidal HiFi launched in the U.S. offering CD quality audio (FLAC files at 1411 kbps) for $19.99 per month.

    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…

    Never Enough Notes

  • NEN EXCLUSIVE: MALKA – ‘I Never Needed Love’ lyric video

    Kimberley-Marie Sklinar
    28 Apr 2015 | 12:40 am
    Malka’s new lyric video for ‘I Never Needed Love’ is achingly cute. Tamara Schlesinger has been in the charts, toured the world, had her vocals and music featured on the likes of Hollywood films and household name shows (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Skint, Scream 4 and more), yet under her current project moniker MALKA, you’d never suspect a thing. See the lyric video for uplifting track ‘I Never Needed Love’ above. A new name brings with it new freedoms, and MALKA sees Schlesinger unchained from the confines of writing and performing with live…

It was only a matter of time before Plastique returned with a song to royally kick your head in. Latest single ‘Quake’, set for release on 4 May is an all guns blazing, assertive and synthy manifesto of a track that’ll have your feet pounding and your senses pretty f*cking aroused.

    Following the release of her album ‘Ivy Tripp‘ earlier this month, we’re confident that Waxahatchee’s (aka Katie Crutchfield) success story is only going to continue to gain pace. New single ‘La Loose’ is taken from the album, and comes out on 1 June on acclaimed label Wichita Recordings. Listen to ‘La Loose’ above. It’s absolutely one of the best songs on the ‘Ivy Tripp’ record: a subtle Casio-esque rhythm reminds us of Broken Social Scene, and its optimistic poppy atmosphere lighten up sad lyrics referencing a relationship’s…

    3.6NEN rating‘Son’ is a confident and assured third EP from Sunderland born Antonio Lulic, a man once described as having “Sick tunes” by Ed Sheeran no less. Yes the flame haired, Marmite like Ed is a fan of Antonio’s and back in 2011 had him support his UK tour. Fast forward to now and with the release of this third EP, Antonio has been invited again to help support Ed on tour, this time in South America starting in Chile at the end of the month. So how has he managed this you ask. Passionate and simple songwriting in short. Antonio Lulic uses his own…
  • REVIEW: M+A – ‘Anyway Milkyway’ – Out Now

    Robin Cannone

    4.3NEN ratingThere are some EPs that you listen to and at the end of it they’re conventionally boring- flat, monochrome, tasteless. They just didn’t stir that little something inside you that asks to be titillated by what’s flowing down your headphones. And there are the others. The disks that set you ablaze with emotions; wake something within you. By opposition, these are choppy, colourful, engrossing. I call these orgasmic discoveries. ‘Anyway Milkyway’ belongs to the latter. The four-track EP is the creation of Italian duo M+A, Alessandro Degli Angioli and Michele Ducci.

    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…

    How to Sing Better

  • What Does It Mean To Learn To Sing Naturally?

    Andy Barnes
    21 Apr 2015 | 3:21 am
    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…
  • 3 Things I Disagree With Speech Level Singing About

    Andy Barnes
    31 Mar 2015 | 3:16 am
    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…

  • Jaws Share Grungy New Track ‘Bad Company’

    Jamie Coughlan
    27 Apr 2015 | 3:48 pm
    Birmingham Quartet Share New Track on Huw Stephen’s Radio 1 Show Following smartly on their success of their debut LP Be Slowly, JAWS have shared their dirtier and grungier new standalone single ‘Bad Company’ via Huw Stephen’s Radio 1 show. That isn’t to mean that they’ve abandoned their way with a pop melody, though. The track is simply of a more roiling, pounding, and less sunny disposition than what we are usually accustomed to from the group. The band will be self releasing the track on June 8th, and you can catch them playing it live all over England…
  • Pale Honey – Self Titled – LP Review

    Siobhan Smith
    27 Apr 2015 | 12:44 pm
    A new addition to the heavily subscribed guitar-and-drums-duo fold, Swedish minimalist rockers Pale Honey are comprised of Tuva Lodmark (guitar and vocals) and Nelly Daltrey (drums). Following their 2014 EP Fiction, their self-titled debut album is released on the 4th of May through Bolero Records. Sounding something like an amalgamation of early PJ Harvey meets Elastica, with some Sleater Kinney thrown in for good measure, Pale Honey are understated guitar rock with no frills. They offer concise, controlled songs with an overriding air of nonchalance that also bears some resemblance to the…

    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…

    23 Apr 2015 | 7:56 am
    Did you know consumers spend 60 percent of their “digital time” on mobile devices? Yet less than half of businesses are using mobile marketing to reach their customers. Surprising, isn’t it? With the increase in mobile usage by consumers (by the way, the number continues to climb every day), you simply can’t ignore mobile marketing anymore. It’s a big opportunity too many are missing out on. But how do you get started? We partnered with 60 Second Marketer to survey more than 1,000 businesses around the globe to learn about their mobile marketing efforts. Here are three key…

    Picture this: You’re standing in a long line at the coffee shop, in dire need of your A.M. caffeine fix. You strike up a conversation with the man standing in front of you, and you both commiserate over the first-world problem at hand. As you’re chatting, it turns out he’s interested in learning more about your consulting business. You dig out your phone and hand it over to him so he can add himself to your email list using your mobile app. One problem: the coffee shop’s WiFi is on the fritz. Actually, it’s not a problem at all. You’re using Atom, AWeber’s mobile app for growing…

  • 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…

    Once upon a time there was a young lady who didn’t know that a cook could be a magician in the kitchen. 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…

Their praises have been sung from all across the land, and I know the tune by heart. This is not a fast recipe. However, what caramelized shallots lack in speed, they make up for in ease and simplicity. With 3 ingredients, (except for the 4th ingredient: patience) shallots, a bit of butter, and salt, the answer to your tastebud sorrows will evaporate: Just sweat them in a pan on low heat for half an…

    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. I made you some crostini, but instead of bread slices, I used roasted sweet…

If I was making brunch for, say Easter, Mother’s Day or Christmas morning, I might whip up the uncommonly scrumptious Smitten Kitchen Challah Bread recipe and make french toast with that. Homemade challah bread french toast will blow your mind, but will require a tad more effort and time than what I’m willing to spare on a weekday. This recipe utilizes any bread you have lying…

Previously, they had a more general, “no nudity or genitalia” rule, which left some wondering about the nipple – a female nipple is considered private, or NSFW, but a male nipple is fine. 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. Ever since he switched up the career path and started rapping seriously, which was about five or six years ago, he's been serving up mixtapes on…

    Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio is on Tinder. So, ladies, wear a condom. Game Of Thrones characters are far less/more attractive in the books. It depends. Batman comic strips from 1968-1969 newspapers that have never been reprinted until now John Herrman at The Awl wonders: Will The Internet Just Fix Itself?  It is hard to square some sort of Return to Internet Nature with so many prospectors wandering the land with glints in their eyes.

  • Interview & Show Review: Jocelyn Arndt

    24 Apr 2015 | 6:07 pm
    Music has certainly been flowing this month! I have met my quota and then some for my spring tours in New York City (NYC). Another fascinating group has now gotten my attention. I met with some new musicians last week who are more than meets the eye. Jocelyn and her brother Chris Arndt make up the family band that is Jocelyn Arndt. These two kids supported by their band: Kate Sgroi (bass guitar), David Bourgeois (drums and music director) Drew Tirella (percussion, bass, and keyboard) and Tucker Callander (violin) rocked out in a bluesy way that was simply enjoyable. I met the siblings at…

    I first heard this absolute stunner of a remix during DJ Enferno’s live set last week at Vibe Las Olas, the nightclub that I run as music director.  It’s always fun to bring in guests from out of town to see what kind of tracks they’re playing- apparently this wild, sweaty, future Rnb is killing it in clubs across the country.  Manila Killa’s Jersey club version of this duet by Chris Brown and newcomer Sevyn Streeter is a step forward in a genre I never gave much thought to. Enjoy.

  • 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…

    In the world of stock media Revostock is a big player.They host a large array of high quality stock media including a huge collection of after effects and motion templates, stock video, music for productions and sound fx. 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 management team has character, and to me that is a very desirable quality. Revostock as a marketplace…
  • 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…

The South Bay is no stranger to the idea of being green and since the official Earth Day, April 22, is just behind us, we at South Bay Events have put together a list of local events dedicated to the green month of…

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…

  • Dillon Francis Isn’t Making An R&B Album

    Krista De Leon
    27 Apr 2015 | 7:57 pm
    Last week, the EDM blogosphere speculated and reported that Dillon Francis would be releasing an R&B album. As it turns out though, this was nothing but a misunderstanding, as the DJ/producer will not be heading in that direction. The commotion all started during a recent interview with MTV News, where Dillon named Drake’s “Wednesday Night Interlude” as a source of inspiration, saying that he “listens to it 10 times a day” and “thinks that’s where he wants to take the next album he wants to do.” However, the DJ’s Snapchat story later revealed that this…

The original Your Shot program premiered on Australian television in 2010, and has famously included DJs as well as enthusiastic fans with little or no experience alike. When word broke that Simon Cowell would attempt the same thing with Ultimate DJ, a program in the vein of American Idol geared towards the electronic music scene, everyone from Insomniac to Fatboy Slim came down…

As if there weren’t already enough reasons to check out the second edition of the event, ID&T has released an official trailer that takes you back in time to the storied Netherlands festival’s humble origins. Billed as the Netherlands’ longest-running music festival, the seeds of Mysteryland were sown in the Amsterdam underground dance music scene of the early ’90s. “Overnight, electronic music exploded,” says the video’s narrator.

    John Cameron
    27 Apr 2015 | 10:04 am
    The first song off of Yellow Claw‘s upcoming debut album, Blood For Mercy, has been receiving mixed reviews from the trap trio’s fanbase so far, as it features low-pitch vocals and a four-four beat resembling something we’d hear in deep house, which makes for a substantial departure from the group’s trademark sound. While it’s not a poor effort by any means, the only remotely trap-y part of “Run Away” is the second bridge, when a syncopated beat punctuated by rattling 808s leads to the second peak. It’s certainly different from what…

Last month, they made headlines when they called underground dance music “amateur” during a New York Times interview and had to answer to the controversy it generated around the blogosphere. This time around, they took a bit of a safer route by discussing their own creative process. “It’s a bit like that fight scene in the video,” Ingrosso laughs, talking about he and Axwell’s studio sessions. “It’s different every time because we’ve been in Sweden, we’ve been in…

    Kimberley-Marie Sklinar

    Malka’s new lyric video for ‘I Never Needed Love’ is achingly cute. Tamara Schlesinger has been in the charts, toured the world, had her vocals and music featured on the likes of Hollywood films and household name shows (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Skint, Scream 4 and more), yet under her current project moniker MALKA, you’d never suspect a thing. See the lyric video for uplifting track ‘I Never Needed Love’ above. A new name brings with it new freedoms, and MALKA sees Schlesinger unchained from the confines of writing and performing with live…

    Following the release of her album ‘Ivy Tripp‘ earlier this month, we’re confident that Waxahatchee’s (aka Katie Crutchfield) success story is only going to continue to gain pace. New single ‘La Loose’ is taken from the album, and comes out on 1 June on acclaimed label Wichita Recordings. Listen to ‘La Loose’ above. It’s absolutely one of the best songs on the ‘Ivy Tripp’ record: a subtle Casio-esque rhythm reminds us of Broken Social Scene, and its optimistic poppy atmosphere lighten up sad lyrics referencing a relationship’s…

Yes the flame haired, Marmite like Ed is a fan of Antonio’s and back in 2011 had him support his UK tour. Fast forward to now and with the release of this third EP, Antonio has been invited again to help support Ed on tour, this time in South America starting in Chile at the end of the month. So how has he managed this you ask. Passionate and simple songwriting in short. Antonio Lulic uses his own…
  • REVIEW: M+A – ‘Anyway Milkyway’ – Out Now

    Robin Cannone
    27 Apr 2015 | 1:00 am
    4.3NEN ratingThere are some EPs that you listen to and at the end of it they’re conventionally boring- flat, monochrome, tasteless. They just didn’t stir that little something inside you that asks to be titillated by what’s flowing down your headphones. And there are the others. The disks that set you ablaze with emotions; wake something within you. By opposition, these are choppy, colourful, engrossing. I call these orgasmic discoveries. ‘Anyway Milkyway’ belongs to the latter. The four-track EP is the creation of Italian duo M+A, Alessandro Degli Angioli and Michele Ducci.

    You may have seen in some earlier posts we talked about how to set up a Facebook page and what to do with it once it’s set up. Well here we’re going to continue with that second part as last time was just the beginning. Getting likes is relatively easy. People seem to randomly click like on anything like it’s an automatic response. What you really need (and what those important industry people are actually looking for) is fan engagement, i.e. do they post, do they comment, do they ask questions?

A Jacket A bio (biography) A fact sheet Press clippings Photograph(s) A press release A promotional letter A CD? Something special Press Clippings Of course you won’t have any of these to start with.

    If you are going to make contact with a media organisation to inform or update them with a current event, you should always use a press release. These are in a standard format which makes them nice and easy for editors to read and see if they want to cover the story. They won’t waste time wading through a long meandering letter. Show that you respect their time. Speaking of time…..if you are writing to a monthly publication, much of it may be prepared 6 months or more in advance. Send your press release early. Weeklies may still be largely prepared a month or more ahead. Dailies…

    I will go into some more basics, nuts and bolts of chord sequences and lyrics, etc. in a later post but here I wanted to give you a few quick pointers as I assume most of you are already writing songs. The 7 Second Rule Your introduction must be the strongest part of your song. Typically if a listener hasn’t been grabbed within 7 seconds they will click onto something else.

And if you can make the…
