    Mas Ysa shares the video for Seraph single “Margarita” via Pitchfork. Directed by Kris Moyes (Beck, Sia, Grizzly Bear), the video was filmed in Hawaii at several locations across the big Island of Hawaii – Volcanoes National Park, Mauana Kea, Papakolea Beach (aka Green Sand Beach) and Kulaniapia Falls. Seraph is the creation of Mas Ysa, aka Thomas Arsenault. He embraces cutting-edge electronic music, but owes plenty to traditional songwriting; songs that are made to pack a dance floor flow seamlessly into harrowing ballads, which is ever-present on his debut LP Seraph, which was…

    DAY IN THE LIFE OF A COMMERCIAL MUSICIAN

    If you spend much time reading my blog, you'll notice I dedicate a lot of ink to the business side of the music business. The reason I do is because it is one of the most important skills to learn. In today's world to be a musician you also have to think like a business man. If you take anything from that statement please take this. If you do not feel comfortable with sales, business, negotiations, marketing, promotion, ect; you have to hire someone that will take on that role.The reason being is that a lot of musicians have a belief that if the music is good it will sell itself, get popular…

    I have talked a lot on this blog about learning technique and practicing vocal exercises, but what about learning how to sing a song? Once you have a solid technique and you want to start singing actual songs (the fun part), how do you go about learning songs and practicing them enough that you are good enough to start performing? These are all good questions and in this post I want to share how to sing a song by following 3 easy steps. I will assume you have a song, or a number of songs in mind, and that you are familiar with the melody and structure of the song. So, let’s get…

  • why do fans cry when they meet celebrities?

    deankings
    30 Jul 2015 | 8:18 am
    Many people cry when they meet celebrities, especially the ones who have a crush on that particular individual. The degree of devotion to celebrities can range from a simple crush to a delusion that they have an intimate relationship with the star which does not exist. In some cases, this can lead to stalking behavior. This can easily switch to hatred of the previously loved celebrity, and result in attempts at violent attacks, one notable incident being the death of Rebecca Schaeffer by a stalking fan in 1989. Above, Lana Del Rey comforts a very emotional male fan after signing an autograph…

    Tove Lo says a rock star is expected to act like a mess, sound like a mess & look like a mess. People don’t expect you to show up on time and be professional. But when you’re a pop star, you have to do all that, look perfect and be a role model. Pop stars like Taylor Swift spend hours putting on makeup before performing a show or even going to the gym. She is always anticipating a camera moment from either a fan or a paparazzi and she can never look a mess.

Fox News Headlines 24/7 will be staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a…

    The issue surrounding royalties for songs recorded before 1972 has not typically been a friendly one to SiriusXM.  The satellite radio provider has found itself on the losing side of an argument about the payment of royalties for music fitting into that category.  The issue arises because the royalty laws used to pay artists took effect in 1972, leaving a debated loophole of music that predates the law. Flo and Eddie, from the Turtles, and famous for the song Happy Together filed suit in California for unauthorized use of their material, and are working their way across several states with…

As jazz musician Louis Armstrong once famously said, “all music is folk music; I ain’t never heard no horse sing a song.” All of this has…
  • Album Review: The Receiver, “All Burn”

    Dw. Dunphy
    30 Jul 2015 | 3:38 am
    A few years ago the Billboard Top 100 made the decision to include EDM, or electronic dance music, into its calculus. It was a move that positively reflected a clearer picture of popular music in that the EDM audience has always been vast and under-served by the mainstream. Still, there was a major negative in that, since then, when some outlet says something is keyboard-based or keyboard-driven, thoughts immediately race to a specific sound, rhythm, or set of repetitions. That must have been a bit of a shock to rock, pop, and soul groups who, up to that point, used keys for the multiplicity…
  • REVIEW: HC-B – “Rough”

    29 Jul 2015 | 2:59 pm
    It takes a great record to remind me how awkward it can be — yes yes, like dancing to architecture — to write about really good instrumental rock music. For the moment, the band putting me in said position is HC-B, the record is the group’s latest Hidden Shoal release, Rough, and both are terrific, sometimes bordering on breathtaking. There are plenty of tropics and meridians that can bring you to Catania, Sicily, the band’s birthplace and home since forming in 1999, that heady peak of post-rock, and they are surely writ large all around the band’s sound.

The job did pay the bills, however, and the money kept him comfortably alcoholic Los Angeles where, as he wrote, “everything is too large, too loud and usually banal in…

(And if Google is lying to us now, we have bigger problems than whether or not I’m writing about Skinny Puppy too much.)

    The sound world of Joey Blush (aka Blush Response) is far reaching, entering dark clouds of murky industrial, EBM, and techno, all with relentless forward-pushing grooves. But as we talk to him about how he connects his gear, we’re really looking at how he connects his thoughts. At its best, whatever we’re doing with gear ought to be about our minds. It’s not just connecting a patch cord. It’s connecting an idea from one place to another – re-wiring neurons.

Concubine, the project from Noah Pred and Rick Bull, is never cold, but it’s always expressing several sentiments simultaneously. It’s at once hypnotic and cerebral, visceral and abstract. Smartly-calibrated percussion politely swings atop future-prog funk flights of fancy. It’ll get a little cheeky, but within a song framework that’s been obsessively constructed. And the album itself is put…

I had so much fun picking through songs and putting this together and more importantly, that aforementioned vibe is something I never get tired of listening to. Many of the songs on here were from…

    “Boys Life” is the beautiful lead single from Small Black‘s new record, and it conjures all of the hazy, bittersweet nostalgia of uncovering a lost, faded photo of someone you love. Best Blues is out October 16 on Jagjaguwar; they’ll play Dallas the next night.

    Get lost in the hazy, rainy nightbus vibes of the latest release on LA’s Not Not Fun label, 2 8 1 4‘s Atarashī Ni~Tsu no Tanjō. The record is a collaborative effort between vaporware OGs telepath + Hong Kong Express, who’ve created a darkly beautiful and dystopian ambient cinescape in a similar (albeit considerably floatier) vein as another NNF classic that still gets regular play around here, Sand Circles. Atarashī Ni~Tsu no Tanjō is out soon on NNF; here’s the haunting opening track:

(You may remember the mix he made for Levitation Fest this year.) He released Cave Ritual back in January and has now reimagined, reinterpreted and handed some songs over for others to remix on Cave Ritual Redux which is out August 10 via Stolen Body Records. There are a couple tracks you can check out right now. "Labratory Broadcast In Stereo" is a two-minute motorik groover and the song "Brian Jonestown Masochist" gets a…

Now they're back with second single "Flamezesz," which is a bit cleaner and more '90s power pop than '90s punk. Both are good, and keeping us excited for the record. Listen below.

Superman, starring in Joachim Trier‘s Cannes favorite Louder Than Bombs, appearing on stage six nights a week in his latest acclaimed play, and acting opposite Kristen Stewart in the upcoming stoner thriller American Ultra, Eisenberg may not have the time or interest to watch movies but he’s certainly blowing us away with them.

That beat really is that deep and warbly. Then (spoiler alert) as it kicks in at about 1:25, you might need to see the ear doc, as the song sparks out to a much bigger, stompy, throaty soul back-up singers-swarmed, electro-fuzz ditty that should be soundtracking your midterms this fall.

    Like some kind of Colorforms-jacked Bollywood demo reel spiced up in a fever, the brand new video for Ur Life One Night from Unknown Mortal Orchestra is an eye-popping delight, and another reason the band might have to take that first word off their band name one of these days. Directed by Manoj Leonel Jahson, it features a giant bug, animated lightning, Mughal-inspired art coutouts and reams of gorgeously detailed outfits. The contrast of the psyched-up ancient imagery to the very now, shifty art-funk match perfectly in vibrancy. Now we want to see the whole movie this thing could become.

Doing all that via a monotone snap-beat and vox and less then two whole synth lines is an impressive way to spend under three minutes. Courtesy of Brooklyn synth duo Kodacrome themselves, with help from Matthew Chaves and John Saponara, this video was a painstaking process, according to singer Elissa LeCoque…

    Now’s the moment to be a fan of the Bond songs. SPECTRE, the new film, comes out this November. That means we’ll hear an official unofficial leak of the title song sometime this summer. Everybody’s been guessing who the singer is. Twitter says it’ll be Sam Smith or Lana Del Rey. Sam Smith says it isn’t him and claims that he “heard Ellie Goulding was going to do it.” The Telegraph wants to know why no one has considered Mumford and Sons (don’t answer that).

    An audible silence lingers in the field and fieldwork of ethnomusicology. Queer subjects and topics have made few appearances in the literature to date. Such paucity isn’t owed to an absence of LGBTQ-identified members and allies; by and large, ethnomusicologists are as fabulous and open-minded as scholars come. So why has queer ethnomusicology arrived late to the party? Queer theory has been around for over two decades. Some might even say that it’s already over, passé, dead. For ethnomusicologists to jump on the wagon now might seem akin to wandering into a club at last call, just as…

    Seventy-five years ago folk singer Woody Guthrie penned the initial lyrics to “This Land Is Your Land,” considered by many to be the alternative national anthem. Sung in elementary schools, children’s summer camps, around campfires, at rallies, and during concert encores, “This Land Is Your Land” is the archetypal sing-along song, familiar to generations of Americans. But what most do not know is that Guthrie, the “Oklahoma Cowboy,” actually wrote the song in New York and that its production and dissemination were shaped by the city’s cultural institutions. Indeed, “This…

    Brigitta Muntendorf's Key of presence, for two pianos, tape, and live electronics, was developed at the SWR Experimental Studio and had its premiere earlier this year at the ECLAT Festival in Stuttgart. The GrauSchumacher piano duo performs; the text comes from Javier Salinas's poem "Something is coming, my friend."

    Robinson Meyer, in a piece for The Atlantic on the increasingly sorry state of classical music on iTunes, points out that when the metadata system for MP3s was introduced, in 1996, it allowed for only three categories: artist, song name, and album title. From the start, this brave new world of music storage failed to acknowledge that composer and performer may not be the same — indeed, that any kind of composing was happening at all. Small wonder that composers and songwriters have seen their royalties plummet in the digital universe: their existence is erased in the architecture of the…

    The melancholy news that Scott Cantrell, a critic of wide and deep experience, has accepted a buyout from the Dallas Morning News led me to update the critics' listing here on the blog. Every time I do this, I remove a few more names. If, as seems not unlikely, the News fails to hire a staff critic to replace him, the state of Texas will have no full-time classical critic — the Houston Chronicle has had none since the departure of Charles Ward — and there will be, by my count, fewer than ten newspapers in America with dedicated classical critics on staff.

    In preparation for the Bard Summerscape presentation of The Wreckers — very much worth seeing, despite the opera's unevenness — I revisited the work of Ethel Smyth on recording: her chamber works, piano music, the Mass in D, and, of course, The Wreckers, which Conifer Classics recorded in 1994. She was, beyond everything else, a composer of impeccable technical skill, nowhere more so than in her String Quartet in E Minor (1902-12). It has a potent, unsettled slow movement and a finale enlivened by quirky whole-tone harmonies. Like many of her pieces, it deserves to heard much more…
  • For Ivan Moravec

    The great Czech pianist died today, at the age of eighty-four. I heard him only once in solo recital, at Carnegie in 2001: Janáček's 1.X.1905, Debussy's Estampes and Pour le piano, Chopin's F-minor Ballade and Preludes. I had the sense of being transported many decades back in time, to some small hall in a Central European town between the wars, where composer, performer, and audience all lived in the same world and spoke the same language. It was playing of the utmost naturalness, strewn with unstressed, seemingly off-the-cuff subtleties. I have heard Chopin executed more…

  • The Horrorist DJ Set and Live at the Bossa Nova Civic Club

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

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

    30 Jul 2015 | 3:30 am
    Nostalgia is one main reason every city still has a classic rock station, which regularly plays bands like Rush, the Tragically Hip, Bryan Adams, Kim Mitchell, Alannah Myles and so on. But what is the new classic rock? As rock from the '70s, '80s and even '90s slowly changes from classic to, for lack of a better word, oldies, what music will rise to stake a claim on nostalgia? It will be the music of the new millennium, and to find out what that will sound like, we asked Neilsen Soundscan, which tracks the amount of radio plays each and every song gets across the country.

    Goodnight Moon author Margaret Wise Brown died doing the can-can. This is the best any of us can hope for. Brown left behind an amazing legacy of magical books that changed the lives of children everywhere. But she was also a prolific songwriter, a fact that just became a lost secret in the decades following her untimely death in 1952. But when publisher Amy Gary went searching for the rights to Brown’s books in the late '80s, she stumbled on the kind of find that most people only dream of: a trunk in an attic stuffed with onion-skin papers, almost everything Brown had ever written and a…

The award-winning Canadian hip-hop artist fired back with a low-key new track called "Charged Up." After getting no reply, Drake has now posted a heavier new track called "Back to Back." "This is for y'all that think I don't write enough," he raps. "They just mad 'cuz I got the Midas touch." The track also asks why Mill hasn't replied, and accuses Mill of riding on the coattails of his superstar girlfriend Nicki Minaj. "You love her then you gotta give the world to…

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

      Returning to NYC screens this Wednesday for the first time in a long time is Bold As Love’s literary editor’s Bridgett M. Davis’ landmark feature film Naked Acts. Not enough can be said about the impact that Naked Acts had on a generation of Black and independent and female filmmakers with Davis putting together multilayered female characters full of humor, pathos, and (yes!) agency, as well as for her steadfast execution in getting the film out to the masses. Making cinematic history, in September 1998 Davis and her team premiered Naked Acts at the historic Thalia…

    From On the Struggle to Self-Promote by Kiini Ibura Salaam. Promoting your work relies on a willingness to be uncomfortable, and to put your small self in service of a larger vision for your work.   For artists who want to do more than make art in their room, artists who want artmaking to be a career and a way of life, self-promotion is a necessary act. It is also an irritant, a burden, and an exhausting merry-go-round. Some of us artists are blessed with gregarious personalities, with the instinct and the need to be seen, but there are just as many of us—if not more—who prefer to…

    Originally posted on robfields.com. Second week of wearing out this Kamasi Washington album, The Epic. I now see why Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly sounded like a free jazz album: It’s thanks to this guy’s influence. And–on a slightly random, but still impressive note–think about this: Washington runs a dectet!  Who does that these days?  Well, depending on where you catch them, there can be a lot of people in Greg Tate and Jared Nickerson’s Burnt Sugar. Lots of wide-ranging sounds here. It’s another album, like Kendrick’s (again),…

    Peter Lee
    20 Jul 2015 | 10:47 am
    Last week, I reviewed the debut album by Identical Suns. But I found their songwriting and recording process so fascinating that I had some follow-up questions. Below is an interview I had with Rene Rodriguez and Todd Stanton, the core members of the power-pop group. 1. How did the recording process work? Todd: For the recording process, Rene would send me a demo, or me to him. We would tool around with it individually, sending it back and forth until we felt it was ready enough to record. Rene: Todd had a slew of demos and I basically picked through the ones I liked. A few of them…

    The Internet is an amazing thing. It's created pen pals, marriages, business dealings, debates and in the case of Identical Suns, a songwriting collaboration. Rene Rodriguez and Todd Stanton were acquaintances in the Mike Viola Facebook group. The two discovered that they both had a passion for songwriting and began writing, first via old-school technology - Stanton sent Rodriguez a phone recording of a song. Rodriguez wrote lyrics to it, recorded a new version, and emailed it back to Stanton, and the songwriting process was born. The result is an eponymous debut by the duo, who are the core…
  • Movie Review: Love & Mercy

    30 Jun 2015 | 2:27 pm
    Brian Wilson is the forgotten genius of the 1960s. His group, the Beach Boys, was constantly being compared to the Beatles, and some say that Sergeant Pepper drove him to madness as he tried to up the ante with his (until recently) unfinished magnum opus Smile. And his image has been tainted by Mike Love touring the country with a bastardized version of the group, wearing Hawaiian shirts and singing "Kokomo" and "Little Deuce Coupe" at county fairs. The truth is made known in Love & Mercy, the new biopic starring John Cusack and Paul Dano as Wilson. Unfortunately, not many people…
  • A Second Listen: ‘Up,’ R.E.M.

    Peter Lee
    20 Jun 2015 | 9:53 am
    I remember hearing "Airportman," the first track from the 1998 R.E.M. album Up, and thinking, That's it, they've lost it. Drummer Bill Berry had just quit the band, and they had steadfastly refused to replace him, opting to remain a trio and adding a session drummer when and if needed. From the sounds of "Airportman," a Brian-Eno type atmospheric opener, they seemed to be declaring their independence from percussion. I sped through the rest of the tracks, with only "At My Most Beautiful" catching my attention. An R.E.M. album disappointed me for the third time in a row, and that would end my…

    I'm excited to announce the future publication of "The Death and Life of Mal Evans," my first novel, due in July 2015. I've always been bothered that the Beatles broke up too soon. Granted, I didn't expect them to be the Rolling Stones, playing together for 50 years, but eight years wasn't enough. I had always asked myself, "What if? What if they had stayed together?" That's what "The Death and Life of Mal Evans" shows us. Former Beatle roadie Mal Evans lies in a Los Angeles apartment in January 1976, dying of a gunshot wound. His life has spiraled downward since his beloved band broke up in…

There are a lot of worm cans in life that we’re afraid to open.

In a statement, Raphael Warnock, pastor of Ebenezer, said the flags represent “a terrorist act meant to intimidate.” He equated the littering to placing Swastikas around a Jewish synagogue. “Let the message go out that we will not be shaken by this,” said Warnock, who has been outspoken about recent race-based acts of violence like police shootings and the…

A state of being, mostly reserved for those unique enough to break constant barriers, put in place to test and push you.

As I'm working more within open source, it's dawned on me to learn from collectivist and activist projects outside of tech with loads of experiences in community management, collective decision making, and volunteer organizing. I don't want to claim that the things I will talk about here haven't been talked about before in tech, I just rarely see references to…

Bowles also talks about the Weightless Economy, in which standard economic practices no longer make any sense (because cost of reproduction is zero). This is at odds with the mindset that people should get paid for working on Free/Libre Open Source work. If we want Open Source to stay a labour of love (which it is for a lot of people), does injecting money…

    Yesterday, in the midst of an interview promoting the forthcoming NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, Ice Cube casually dropped a bombshell: that Dr. Dre is releasing a new album, perhaps as soon as this Saturday, “inspired by the Compton movie.” This would be kind of a giant deal, since the good doctor hasn’t put out a full album of his own since 1999 — yep, sixteen years, which means that if 2001 were a person, it’d be driving now (and asking Dad awkward questions about its name.)

    To know PC Music is to have an opinion about PC Music. For the last couple of years, the London-based SoundCloud collective has slowly introduced the world to its warped view of electronic-based pop: it is here that Top 40’s fabricated quality shows its seams on purpose, at times unraveling into chintzy nonsense. Is it commentary, or is it no better than the inauthentic EDM it appears to mock? That’s for listeners to decide, seemingly with increasing frequency over the last six months as PC Music debuted live at SXSW and released their first comp outside of SoundCloud. PC Music…

Rents in Brooklyn are up, chain stores and blandness are spreading like viruses, and some beloved DIY arts space is surely about to close somewhere, but Brooklyn manages to stay weird despite itself, emitting music well off Spotify/Amazon/iTunes grid. The latest sonic evidence of Brooklyn’s enduring idiosyncrasy is a four-track set by David Goren that documents two-and-a-half hour’s worth of pirate radio…

    10 Jul 2015 | 8:19 am
    Released in 1987 as part of the Come On Pilgrim EP, this song is just it's own thing entirely. It drifts in unannounced and makes you listen. It's one of those songs that you don't realize the lyrics beyond, "I've been tired" exist until you read them.And when you read them... well, lets just say they pack a wallop.Here's a live performance of "I've Been Tired" from Dutch TV in 1988:And here's the lyrics:One two threeShe’s a real left winger ‘cause she been down southAnd held peasants in her armsShe said I could tell you a story that could make you cryWhat about you?I said Me tooI could…

I've always loved Modest Mouse, ever since my friend Linnea was in art school and I asked her who I should listen to, and she said, "I heard Modest Mouse is pretty cool."I picked up This is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About shortly thereafter.If you have thoughts about the song or video's meaning, I'd love to hear it.

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

And the desolation on Outside, Digging when he sings, "There is so little light from the warmth of the sun".

  • Single Serving: Small Black – Boys Life

    Matthew Hickey
    30 Jul 2015 | 10:17 am
    Earlier this morning, Brooklyn’s Small Black announced their new album Best Blues will drop October 16th via the fine folks at Jagjaguwar. The album is described as “an album about loss, the specific loss of precious people in our lives, but also the loss of memories and the difficult fight to preserve them.” They’ve also shared the album’s lovely first single “Boys Life” which is built out from a vibe that sounds appropriately out-of-focus as it builds to a punchy, swirling climax. You can pre-order it here.
  • Single Serving: Holy Holy – Sentimental and Monday

    Matt Dillon
    29 Jul 2015 | 5:55 pm
    For being a band only a couple years in the making, Australian bred Holy Holy’s sound, content, and composition compares favorably to those of bands who have been making music for decades. Their debut LP When the Storms Would Come has (unfortunately for the rest of the world) only been released to Australia as of just a few days ago, however if the 3 previously released tracks streaming over on Soundcloud are any indication of what the rest of the album is made of, I have a feeling Holy Holy is going to be a buzz worthy band to fawn over. Each song presents itself much like a leather…
  • Single Serving: IYES – No Wonder

    Matthew Hickey
    28 Jul 2015 | 4:19 pm
    Before last week it’d been months since we’d heard any new music from IYES. Then, last week, they dropped the rainbow-hued “So Crazy” and casually mentioned that it was the first single from “a few EPs” they’d been working on. Well, it certainly hasn’t taken very long for them to hook us up with another taste. Today we get melodically euphoric, disco-like single “No Wonder.” If this is what we can come to expect from the album, then we can expect great things. I’m loving this.

    I’m definitely feeling this new single “Claws” from vōx (a.k.a. Sarah Winters). It’s brand new and may be one of her strongest singles yet. It’s built around a sweeping and cinematic soundscape, swirling harp notes, hip hop-inspired rhythms, and (of course) Winters’ warm croon. Take a listen.

A must hear for fans of label mates Diet Cig, their album’s first single “Saturday” is as much infectious and rambunctious as it is filled with anxiety. Just over a minute long, “Saturday” will leave you feeling buzzed.

Click here to play “Got Rhythm“ So you hear downbeats and tap either a keyboard or a phone on the downbeats. Then the audio drops out and you need to keep tapping with no sound. After a couple of tries, I got 849, I like how it breaks down how late/early it is. But at the same time I think it’s a little goofy you click but don’t hear a drum sound. Also saw the scores of a few…

You press one button on the keyboard to make a circle stop on the next square. If you miss the square by being late, you restart. You hear music that tells you what the tempo and the patterns of squares correspond to the music. The first level consists of a straight line of blocks. What ends up happening is that have an…

Sometimes people go over to the microphones to make speeches, announcements, etc. Usually that’s fine. I try to make sure my saxophone is out of the way so it won’t get bumped. You want to be aware of that possibility, especially if people somewhere are drinking. However, this time, there were a LOT of people where the band was playing. And then….

That’s how I got hooked on Alvvays. The combination of a dreamy atmosphere and beach/surf feel grabbed me straight away. So when I heard they were playing at the Boileroom in Guildford, I was in! The thought of cold beer and some great feel-good music got me through Friday. I had been to the Boileroom a few times before in my Uni years, it’s an intimate venue with a great…

Have you heard of them? Will you be going? I think you should… and I’m always right.

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…

    By Rob Levy Not content to rest on its laurels, Opera Theatre St. Louis concludes its fortieth season with Emmeline, an intense slice of operatic Americana from Tobias Picker. One of the reasons Emmeline is such a fantastically powerful opera is that it is a tale taken from real events. Based on Judith Rossner‘s bestseller, the opera is set amidst the backdrop of a conservatively minded 19th century Maine, and focuses on Emmeline, a young woman sent to the mills to earn money for her family. However, the owner’s son-in-law, Mr. Maguire, takes advantage of her; pregnant and disgraced,…

    Never before has an English monarch been the subject of such an emotional and dazzling opera as with Richard the Lionheart. First performed in 1727, the opera was written by Handel (whose participation didn’t exactly hurt his social status in Britain), with a libretto by Paoli Antonio Rolli, which removed its 1191 historical setting in favor of a more modern setting as an appeasement to England’s new king, George II. This production, commissioned by Opera Theatre St. Louis, marks the American premiere of an opera that is a passionate love story, a tale of political intrigue and a lesson…

If you don’t focus, then everything, just everything, can fall apart. This is also a theme of one of my favorite Larry McMurtry novels, Lonesome Dove, and of course, countless other songs, stories and novels. It’s awfully difficult these days to keep track of details, and they are extra-important in our business.

    13 Jul 2015 | 8:40 am
    May I say something? I’ll be brief. Local television is benefitting from some new creative blood. Of the many examples of promos and ideas on display at this year’s Station Summit, creativity is obviously in high gear. I realized while watching and listening to many of these pieces that I’m witnessing the creations of people brought up in the most advanced technological period that has ever existed. Desktop editing is something they grew up with and the tools of their trade continue to refine and dazzle the marketplace with user friendly innovations. I know production budgets aren’t…

    The 1943 musical “Oklahoma!” was a touchstone in the history of Broadway theater. It marked the first of a series of groundbreaking collaborations between composer Richard Rodgers and lyricist Oscar Hammerstein, broke all kinds of conventions as to the structure of book musicals, and revolutionized the record industry with the first “original cast album,” which starred Alfred Drake, Joan Roberts, Celeste Holm, and Howard Da Silva.

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

Just like in the US, IFPI found that streaming services—made up of subscription and ad-supported streams—were a key driver of global digital music revenues, accounting for 32% of the total, compared…

    Among American adults who use audio players in the car, two-thirds first turn on the AM/FM radio when listening to music, reports Ipsos in a newly-released study, while roughly 1 in 7 (14%) tune in to Sirius XM and about 1 in 10 (11%) turn on their CD player. Preference for AM/FM radio is consistent across age groups, gender, and household income levels, though appears to be higher among females and older consumers. Interestingly, 18-34-year-olds are more likely to first play a CD (15%) than to listen to streaming digital audio services or a digital music collection (10%). Source: Ipsos Read…

    Well this is exciting. That new O’Brother record that’s been in the works? It’s done. And it’s currently getting mixed. Musically, it’s substantially more minimalistic than our last two records. It felt good to strip things down a little bit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still heavy and orchestral like O’Brother has always been, but it’s also different for us. I think every song has a section where only one of us is playing, so that’s pretty cool, and I’m sure the finished product will sound cool too. Right now we’re looking at a release sometime early next…

Oslo Parks is a joint project of producers Rob Flynn and Ian Booth, who seem to have somehow found the formula for catchy, upbeat synthpop that gets on heavy rotation here at Walrus Towers. And the fact that Slipping Away is also a little bleached with summer good times only makes it all the more sweet. Oslo Parks – Slipping Away was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

The track is built around a pulsating, almost sinister bassline, with the opening few bars sounding like we are in for a subtle house groove. The vocals are beautifully haunting, and the song builds and builds throughout turning the dark into the light. Play Out will be released on Pond Life Songs on the 4th of September. Zola Blood – Play Out was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

But that’s slowly starting to change. Named after the many springs found in the area during the 18th and 19th centuries, Çesme has long attracted local tourists seeking out the healing thermal waters of the surrounding Sifne Springs. When tourists discovered the haunts of the Bodrum Peninsula, the smart set migrated north and the region still manages to remain relatively untarnished, offering a…

For those willing to pay the price to catch the midnight sun, polar nights, northern lights, arctic tundras, grand mountain tops and colourful grass-roofed houses, it’s undeniably worth it. This is a land of contrasts, from the soft and gentle to the harsh and untamed. Tiny fertile villages spring out like luminous green pearls along the fjordline where indomitable fishing communities cling to rocky outcrops and…

The rest, of course, is history. With a strong discography and endless amount of hits, Ludacris has been a constant in the music industry. But that doesn’t mean nothing has changed…

    Born in Germany and now residing in North Carolina, Yung Plus Anutha possesses a knack for witty lyricism that can spark a reaction out of even the most jaded rap fan. Today, he showcases his skill set in the very creative visual for “Chris Farley,” named after the famous comedian who is well known for his stint as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. The track itself is actually inspired by the Wu-Tang Clan, with Yung even harkening back to his days of youth when he thought he was the “10th member.” Check it out and you’ll surely be glad you did.

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

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

    It’s odd that this is my first post on Tribe Society, because I’ve been a fan of these guys since they kicked things off as another band that often graced the pages of The Record Stache a few years ago. They’ve come a long way from their sunny, indie pop roots, and are now packing a genre bending sound that ranges from dark atmospheres to epic anthems to grimy hip-hop inspired beats. It’s a winning combo! For their latest single off of the Lucid Dreams EP, Tribe Society managed to get some vocal support from the very excellent, Kiesza. She’s got quite an eclectic…

    Lynyrd SkynyrdMore than twenty years ago my career in print media began. After starting a music newsletter six months previously, I took advantage of an entry-level opportunity to work in the sales department of a music magazine. It was interesting for me because of my background working in various musical genres, but I was now thrust into an organization that primarily focused on alternative music. At the time I was not familiar with the musical style or the local scene. Nevertheless, I trudged forward into the belly of the South Florida alternative music scene, looking for advertisers. With…

    Jason DeruloMany times we find very interesting persons, stories or events very near our own domiciles. Such is the case for me here in South Florida, where many speak somewhat negatively about the local music scene. I have heard much about the lack of live music venues, or lack of opportunities for artists of one particular genre or another. Nevertheless, there are many stories of artists who have worked hard to become well known musical stars. There are even more interesting stories of musicians who perform for the love of the art, as well as a small appreciative audience. Although Weekly…

That said, there are a number of traits that I notice among the songs that I do listen to that I thought were worth a mention, since they encapsulate the typical problems when they do appear.Before you send me a link to something to listen to, make sure that your song doesn't have any of these following problems first, which will save us both some time.

    Whether it's a guitar or bass cabinet, your monitor speakers or the speakers in your car, one of the most important elements to how a speaker ultimately sounds is the way it's mounted. Here's an excerpt from "The Ultimate Guitar Tone Handbook," which I wrote with Rich Tozzoli, about one of the more important parts of a speaker cabinet - the baffle.A Typical Speaker Baffle"One of the most overlooked parts of a cabinet is the baffle (seen on the left), which is the board that the speaker is directly mounted on. Perhaps more than any one piece of the cabinet, this has the most influence on…

It's called Google Tone and it will work with any computer using Chrome and the Google Tone extension.What happens is that if you click on the Tone icon, it sends out an audio tone that will be detected by other audio computers in the room, which would then switch their browsers to the same URL.Apparently the Google Research team worked pretty hard on this.

Alas, over the years these companies mostly fell by the wayside once gear became so inexpensive that it took much of the incentive away from building your own. Then there was the liability issue of someone potentially hurting themselves either in building or operating a kit that scared many companies away.It looks like a number of companies are now willing to get back into this market, and one of them is MOD Kit, a…

Singer and head honcho Ryan Davis is a sharp, astute lyricist, the kind of songwriter who probably gets tired of people asking him why he doesn't try his hand at short story writing.

Combining punk abandon and tightly-coiled dance music has always been bonded into the band’s DNA. It’s this core that has seen them outlive the mid-2000s ‘indie/dance punk’ tag and has allowed them to consistently grow lyrically and sonically from album to album. As If is their most consummate collection of songs yet. Listen to new track ‘Freedom! 15’ below: TwitterGoogle+PinterestVK

    Philophobia was the first song, and possibly the last song to be fully realised as a band during rehearsal times back at High School. Every Tuesday evening was spent refining this track in particular, mainly because the lineup back in the school days gravitated particularly to this track. What’s perhaps more fascinating about this track is it was dealt more as a confession of fears between Luna and our drummer Alex. Ever since the Tuesday this song was introduced to the band as a whole in the form of lyrics and the entire bass line, both Luna and Alex admitted their attraction to one…

    This ‘Sleaford Mods’ article was written by Gabriel Ebulue, a GIGsoup contributor Somewhere between the anger and discontent of punk, and the foul mouthed swaggering flow of 90’s Hip-Hop, sits Sleaford Mods, the duo from Nottingham who kicked down a few doors with 2014’s ‘Divide and Exit’, which landed on more than a few best album lists of that year. While this was their 3rd release on Indie label Harbinger Sound, Sleaford Mods in one form or another, have been making and releasing music since 2006.

The four-brother band, originally from Edinburgh, kick-start their passionate yet powerful third EP release, just months after their first (Wake Up In a Dream), with ‘Scarlet Cardigan’, by juxtaposing such a title with fast bass beats and electrifying guitars. Interestingly, this song is also seen to portray the contrast, relatable to many, of the sweet, pretty girl in the ‘scarlet cardigan’, and the ‘late night hooligan’, whom she holds an…

Inara George and Greg Kurstin return from a four-year hiatus with a polished and sickly-sweet collection of indie-pop serenades. The album is an ode to the ‘Young and Dumb’ forever making mistakes in love and sex, particularly the breed of young lovers who don’t want commitment: “You would say you don’t need that stuff / You’re just not the same creature”. The message is a little patronising, but nonetheless universal. ‘Young and Dumb’ is forgettable…

    Benjamin Clementine may sound like the name of a character from Downton Abbey, but that's not the (only) reason I'm enamored with him. This Brit's voice is so deep and smooth, and I've been listening to his song "London" on repeat. The young (he's only 26!) singer is greatly influenced by poets and writers, from William Blake to C.S. Lewis and his fantastical inspiration can be seen so clearly through his lyrics and arrangements.

    Tre Thomas – The Combine: 2k15 The purpose of The Combine: 2k15 became very clear to me as I journeyed down a road untraveled by my friends and family. The main goal of releasing this project was to open the eyes of people “going with the flow” to a different lifestyle and deeper thinking. Between struggling to make a living and dealing with physical and mental pressures, I combined my concepts and ideas to form a story of a dark tunnel which leads into the light. A story where anybody going through a struggle can relate and understand that, although life has it’s ups…

    30 Jul 2015 | 10:56 am
    Another really good new video, the influx of decent videos seems a bit strange to us especially when we're usually not big video fans. This new one is from Kins for their breakthrough - for us anyway - song "Young".Kins released their debut EP, Cyclical, not so long ago and "Young" is just one example of the immense possibilities that could lie ahead for a band that sound like they're only just scratching the surface of their abilities.Watch the video for "Young above.

    Unknown Mortal Orchestra have unveiled a new video for their Multi-Love album track "Ur Life One Night.The video for "Ur Life One Night" is, as we've grown to pretty much expect from Unknown Mortal Orchestra now, mental. The thinking behind the Indian film industry influenced video is as simple as this - they wanted to shoot one in India based on the fact they have the biggest film industry in the world. Good enough theory as any, I suppose. If you haven't already got a copy of Unknown Mortal Orchestra's Multi-Love album then now is the time. Watch the video for "Ur Life One Night" above.

    It's always a good feeling to be posting new stuff from a band we've been loving since pretty much starting this site - nearing 6 years ago now - and although we've been rather critical of some of their music post The Palace Garden, this "So Good" from Beat Connection is exactly what the title says.If there was one thing we did like about the Beat Connection of old, it was their ability to drop a ridiculously positive vibe summer jam and they've done that once again with "So Good".

    REVIEW: The Maccabees' new album - 'Marks To Prove It' ¦ a concept album2015-07-303.8NEN RATINGThe Maccabees are all grown-up, and here are the marks to prove it. Their fourth LP, ‘Marks To Prove It’, has been three years in the making. It’s mature, raw and more piano-led than any of its predecessors and sees the band stripped back, laid bare and laying it all out on the line. Eight years ago, the south London boys were soundtracking many a student night out with the likes of indie disco stapes ‘Lego’, ‘X-Ray’ and ‘Latchmere’. But gone are…

  • Can I Sing Or Am I Doomed To Be Forever Tone Deaf?

    Andy Barnes
    15 Jul 2015 | 5:20 am
    Can I Sing? This is a question that many budding young singers have most likely asked themselves over the years. For some people the answer may have been yes, for others, the answer may have been different. The interesting thing is that people who can naturally sing still have to work hard at it by either taking vocal lessons, practicing for hours and eventually getting out there and performing. In this article, I want to help you answer the “can I sing” questions and also give you some pointers around how to go about getting started if you want to give it a shot. There are also…

    Andy Barnes

    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…

    29 Jul 2015 | 2:45 am
    It’s with considerable pleasure that we bring you the first chance to hear ‘Human Requirements’ by Scottish sci fi punk Batteries. The track will be released on a double A sided single via Do Yourself In on 11th September. The flip-side of the single will be ‘Softhead’ which will be exclusive to the release and not available on the forthcoming self titled album which is out on 7th August. We’ve heard the album and ‘Human Requirements’ is a perfect example of the snappy brash punk style of Batteries. It’s a thrill from start to finish.

    They All Hung Out At Pitchfork Music Festival To Shoot The Shit. The people love CHVRCHES and Haim, and why wouldn’t they? Two pretty damn good bands in Overblown’s book. Anyway Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES recently hung out with the girls from Haim at Pichfork Music Festival to have a good chat. They talked about: how to deal with getting hit in the face with a beachball in front of thousands of people, mesmerizing Afros, panic-vomiting, forgetting lyrics on stage and, most importantly, how to pronounce GIF. Sounds like they had a laugh, eh? Make sure you check out The…

  • Festival Review – Indietracks 2015

    Martin Wilson
    28 Jul 2015 | 1:49 pm
    A unique offering is what every festival is desperately trying to sell but it’s something that Indietracks delivers effortlessly. It can be hard to put your finger on what makes a festival special. Line-up, setting and atmosphere count of course but with Indietracks it’s so much more than that. It’s not simply the chance to ride the old trains at the Midland Railway Centre (I don’t care about trains but did I have fun on them? Hell yeah), the opportunity to take part in various craft activities and a quiz or even the chance to see some amazing owls (really). It’s what this whole mix…

  • 2015 NBA Draft Player Profile: Joseph Youngs

    Corey Rubin
    30 Jul 2015 | 11:48 am
      The Indiana Pacers selected Joseph Young out of Oregon University with the 43rd pick in the 2015 draft. The Oregon guard entered the NBA draft after completing his senior year of college in which he earned Pac-12 player of the year honors. Young averaged nearly 20 points per game during his senior year and was a scoring machine all throughout his collegiate career. He led Oregon to a couple NCAA tournament appearances as their number one offensive threat. There is no doubting Joseph Young’s ability, but standing at 6’2”, 180 pounds, some NBA teams most likely shied away from him…
  • Does Max Scherzer Deserve Another Cy Young Award?

    Corey Rubin
    30 Jul 2015 | 11:19 am
    2015 has already proven to be a good year for Max Scherzer. A star pitcher with the Detroit Tigers from 2010-2014, Scherzer signed a seven-year, $210 million contract with the Washington Nationals in January. At the time the contract was somewhat controversial. Besides being promised $210 million for the length of the contract, Scherzer also receives a $50 million signing bonus that will be paid out over 14 years. Broken down by year, the contract assures that he will get $10 million this year and $15 million for each of the next three seasons. He then will be paid $35 million a year in 2019,…
  • MLB Player Profile: Giancarlo Stanton

    Corey Rubin
    30 Jul 2015 | 11:13 am
    There are baseball players who you do not get up and go to the restroom or the kitchen during their at bats. Giancarlo Stanton is one of those players. Something exciting seems to happen whenever he is at the dish. He might hit one 500’ or he might get drilled in the face or on the hand, landing him on the DL. It’s a shame that the injury bug keeps biting Stanton because if he ever put together a 150 game season, he would put up numbers. It’s also too bad the Miami Marlins don’t seem to have any protection in the lineup for him. Stanton’s home runs don’t just clear the fence.
  • Braves vs Cardinals: Can Anyone Stop St. Louis?

    It is looking more and more like the St. Louis Cardinals will be heading back to the World Series this year. It seems like on even years the San Francisco Giants are a lock and in odd numbered years it is the Cards. St. Louis went to the World Series in 2013, losing to the Red Sox and in 2011 when they beat the Texas Rangers. The Giants went in 2010, 2012 and 2014. This is 2015 so it is the Cardinals turn. Right now, the Cards have the best record in the National League. They are 63-35 and lead the N. L. Central by 6.0 games over the Pittsburgh Pirates who look like they are the second best…

    Corey Rubin
    30 Jul 2015 | 9:10 am
    The National League Western Division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers continued a long east coast road trip this past weekend in a highly competitive four game series against the New York Mets. The Dodgers are a team loaded with great position players, a solid offense and two “lights out” superstar starting pitchers, Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke. For their part, the team from Flushing is offensively-challenged, but their young starting pitchers Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom in particular, seem to be almost unhittable at times. Game one in the four-game series took place Thursday night.

    Headman, aka Robi Insinna, has become a big name in electronic music since he entered the scene over a decade ago. During that span, he began to lose touch with creating new-wave influenced club music (his latest work reviewed here), so he moved over to the production side of things. By directing videos and running his record label,Relish, Headman has realized a new artistic angle that keeps him going, but he never gets too comfortable.

  • Film Review – Eden | Mia Hansen’s Tribute to 90’s French Touch Movement

    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden explores Parisian dance music culture through the rise and fall of the French Touch movement with great skill and minimal melodrama – an authentic depiction of a paradise lost. Delivering a performance that suits the film’s style perfectly, Félix de Givry plays Paul, a DJ inspired by the career of the director’s brother, Sven Hansen-Løve. His descent is saddening, but it is difficult not to get caught up in the exhilaration when he first deciphers the chords of Liquid’s Sweet Harmony. With a magnificent soundtrack which includes Frankie Knuckles, MK…

    Bizarre Culture
    22 Jul 2015 | 3:41 am
    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden is proving to be the dance music film of the year. It is an authentic yet melancholy exploration of Paris’s dance music culture in the 1990s and 2000s, following the French House, Deep House and Garage clubs in which her brother, Sven was immersed. Indeed, Sven Hansen-Løve, of the DJ duo Cheers, serves as the inspiration for the character of Paul in this semi-biographical film. We caught up with him at Soho House a few hours before a screening of Eden to learn more about his creative input, his views on Hollywood’s depiction of DJs and, of course,…

She’s built herself a wildly successful empire and no one can compete with what she has to offer. Peanut Butter is smooth, suave, a little salty, and is a celebrity in her own right. Alone Chocolate is boss. She needs no one. Peanut Butter is the same. Each knows that by herself she has everything she needs to be…

A real album, no joke, and it’s free. Like, zero dollars. Just pop your email in the thang and they’ll send you a DL link.It’s a proper gimmick and one that certainly affects how people are gonna listen to the record, but you know what? It’s a pretty decent collection all the same. Free and at ease, the sort of thing that feels the product of some fun times in the studio, rather than those late nights…

This is a milestone record for the Imps, the transition now complete since ‘Lonerism’ (2012), Tame Impala no longer a ‘band’ and now a ‘project’. This is Parker’s thing, through and through.

It is also apparently the last which is a bummer because I jumped on the wagon a bit late after I thoroughly enjoyed 'What Goes Around' and was eagerly anticipating Lucky 7. The concept here is basically Selektah offering some some classic hip hop production for some of the best wordsmiths to do their thing.

You want your life immortalised in a sad country ballad then this is your dude. But then he’s also pretty prominent with a folky story song or a rampaging rock and roller. Isbell plays a mean and understated guitar and sings in a smooth southern twang but it’s his way with words and a melody that really sets him above and beyond. He’s a graduate of Southern Rock Deities the Drive-By Truckers, booted out of that band for his boozing ways (though not before writing…

    Downtown Raleigh was the epicenter of an event that brought two titans of the  obscure together. Hosted by the Lincoln Theatre, the outdoor stage was the perfect setting as people gathered early to witness this unique event. The trio of J Mascis (vocals and guitar), Lou Barlow (vocals and bass), and Murph (drums) burst out of the late eighties with records that combined a blend punk and rock. While time has changed, these guys have not. Backed with a wall of amplifiers, Dinosaur Jr. [♫♫♫♫♫] was anything but shy and were over the top…

Not only do they have one of the most notorious, theatrical live shows in the metal game, but they dropped the Black Widow album late last year and put on a killer set at Carolina Rebellion back in May. If you missed them at the festival, a more intimate venue, like The Ritz in Raleigh, is the perfect place to get the full effect of In This Moment. We knew nothing about First Decree [ before they took the stage at The Ritz, but we were pleasantly surprised by both their hustle on stage.

    To follow up my recent summer preview, I attended Diane Birch’s first event as part of her summer residency at Joe’s Pub. Early on, I had a feeling that the evening’s show would be different than most of the happenings of the summer. It was both an impressive and relaxing night of comforting music. Diane Birch’s beauty and stunning talent was obvious to all who watched her. Every soul in the house was mesmerized. For those of you who have never been to Joe’s Pub, it really is something else. Since this was my first time at the venue, I suspected it was going to simply be a pub and…

Together the duo have recorded nine brand new songs and put them out on their debut album titled “Hermits On Holiday” which will be coming out August 21st on Birth Records. “Hermits On Holiday” has a somewhat simplistic gritty pop rock and occasionally blues based sound, but at the same time it has many experimental and unconventional nuances to it. It works to the album’s advantage because it takes experimental music and makes it more digestible for those who more…

I have always been fascinated by electronic sounds, thanks to my dad who had an extensive record collection of artists from the 70s.

At that time we used tape and I produced a number of tracks with layers of electronic sounds and various…

    There are many times when I look back at the past 4 years in the music business, and think to myself: I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger. Yes that is a "Ooh La La" reference. Great song, and also very applicable. When you are getting into music as a career, a lot of times you miss out on the luxury of someone telling you that not only are you going to have to work hard at your music skills, but you are also going to have to get really good at business skills as well.

    If you are a musician, whether an entertainment musician or a commercial musician, your music is your biggest asset, and you need to protect it. In the business world you have two categories that most tangible or intangible items fall into and that is liabilities and assets. The difference between the two is fairly simple once you grasp that concept. A liability takes money from your pocket, and an asset puts money into your pocket.Personally, for me, I look at money a lot like points in a game. I make the comparison a lot to SimCity, which was one of my favorite computer games. In that game…

The reason I do is because it is one of the most important skills to learn. In today's world to be a musician you also have to think like a business man. If you take anything from that statement please take this. If you do not feel comfortable with sales, business, negotiations, marketing, promotion, ect; you have to hire someone that will take on that role.The reason being is that a lot of musicians have a belief that if the music is good it will sell itself, get popular…

Now I have nothing against major labels, or indie labels for that matter. Also I have nothing against staying independent. For me it really just depends on what works best for your particular situation. I think it's very important for musicians to carefully consider their options before jumping on board and signing anything, because sometimes you can put roses on a shit deal, but it's still shit.I have been making commercial music…

It would be nice if it was as simple as that, but the reality is that once you make the music it is part of the job description to vigorously promote it, especially if your independent and doing it yourself.I've written in the past about commercial music promotion, marketing, selling techniques, advertising, maximizing conversion rates, ect.

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

  • Mat Zo’s Back On The Scene With This Remix Of Arty’s Stronger

    John Cameron
    30 Jul 2015 | 10:06 am
    It feels like it’s been ages since we’ve seen any Mat Zo headlines that don’t have to do with his epic Twitter tirade, and his publicists certainly don’t seem willing to put him all the way back in the spotlight just yet (we know, we tried). His latest release doesn’t appear to have been his own doing, though – his long-awaited remix of Arty’s “Stronger” has surfaced, and now everybody’s talking about him again. Where the original’s anthemic vocal was met with a surging, main stage-igniting synth lead, funky orchestral…

The track begins with a dissonant piano melody before the delicate harmonies of vocalists Peter, Bjorn and John kick in, setting a dark ambience. Between contemplative lyrics, rich instrumental samples and minimal synth work, the single maintains a…

    REVIEW: The Maccabees' new album - 'Marks To Prove It' ¦ a concept album2015-07-303.8NEN RATINGThe Maccabees are all grown-up, and here are the marks to prove it. Their fourth LP, ‘Marks To Prove It’, has been three years in the making. It’s mature, raw and more piano-led than any of its predecessors and sees the band stripped back, laid bare and laying it all out on the line. Eight years ago, the south London boys were soundtracking many a student night out with the likes of indie disco stapes ‘Lego’, ‘X-Ray’ and ‘Latchmere’. But gone are…

    Berlin-based duo Evvol have reconvened and a new vitality is sparking as they share their new album ‘Eternalism’. It’s enchanting, captivating and something you simply cannot stop listening to, oh and they’re streaming it in full too.

This is their minimalist debut album which is bookended by the two most intriguing tracks they’re said to have ever written, ‘I See You (I Am You)’ and ‘Four Steps From Home’. Out…

An incredibly moving story to accompany the single shows the bands heartbreaking path to where they are now.

At 5am, I took a break to check social media. My heart sank. One of the foremost film composers of our time, James Horner, died in a plane crash last night. Without mincing words to try and explain his influence, here are 5 pieces of music that inspired not only me, but millions of musicians around the world.Read more »

I have been convinced by Grohl and company that the perfect show does exist, and it was fucking awesome. Over the course of a profanity-laden three hour set (that broke curfew by quite a bit) King Dave, sitting atop his throne of flashing lights, guitars and speaker boxes, seemingly invited me and sixteen thousand other Torontonians into his world for deep cuts, Queen covers and Foos hits.

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

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

I was excited for the show considering that it would be my first show at the amphitheatre of 2015 as it’s only open between May and September. Lana also had me excited, but I wasn’t overwhelmed with excitement because I’d seen her before and knew what to expect. She had Grimes open for her which, in my opinion, was absolutely terrible and didn’t seem like it belonged at a Lana concert. Courtneney Love is opening on a…

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

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

    As part of learning to sing, improving singing voice, or becoming a better singer, there are always common desires or preoccupations like how to sing high notes easily, how to sing better, and how to sing falsetto. While these can be achieved through vocal exercises and vocal coaching, some aspiring singers may sometime receive misguided coaching or mixed messages when they ask things like how to sing from your diaphragm. When we sing or speak, the sound that comes out of our mouth involves a complex array of anatomy surrounding our vocal cords. The diaphragm is not located closed to our…

    Unlike dynamic microphones, condensers generally require phantom power (power supply) or batteries to operate and they tend to cost a lot more, but nowadays, there are few affordable ones with non-compromising sound quality. Traditionally, they have been used by recording studios to record singing vocals due to their ability to capture cert
