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

    "I don't feel much/Afraid I don't feel anything at all" Natalie Prass admits at the beginning of 'My Baby Don't Understand Me', the lead track off her gorgeous self-titled debut. But a few lines later, when she's singing directly to a now departed ex-boyfriend about their love being like "a long goodbye" and how it feels like they "keep waiting for the train to cry", you're kind of left wondering who exactly she's trying to convince more about how much she really isn't feeling: him, herself or those of us listening in. It's a bittersweet introduction to an album full of bittersweet songs…

Maya is plumbing new artistic depths; Nocturnal Sunshine exemplifies a deep commitment to her own expansive vision. From featuring her own vocals, to being clad in artwork Maya created herself, Nocturnal Sunshine is something more of a cohesive artistic project than simply a record; it seems only too appropriate that the completely self-produced album be released on Maya’s own label, I/AM/ME.

Kennedy, the life and presidency of Richard Nixon, and the strange-but-true life story of former President George W.

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

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

    (Short answer: no, they aren’t.) So, the thing about Amsterdam’s Paradiso is, there are balconies. And the thing about being in a balcony above Kraftwerk is, their once-secret live rig for their 3D show is now fully exposed. The next question: what’s happening? I have been squinting at this live video for some time, and I’m not sure. Some things are obvious: definitely MK I Maschine drum machine controllers from Native Instruments, definitely a MIDI keyboard for the odd solo, fairly certain I also spot a Novation ReMOTE ZeRO SL controller (encoders and faders and red…

    Looking through the results of our reader poll for the year's most anticipated albums is always enlightening to me. For one, it gives a snapshot into the collective minds of all our readers that just reading comments and posts never really shows. I mean, you all love Brand New, so I guess that kinda shows. But it also shows where there's a tad difference between the readers and the albums that appeared on our staff anticipated list. It shows that while there's a group of commenters that seem to strongly dislike Kanye West, he makes the list above All Time Low, Motion City Soundtrack, and…
  • Exclusive: A Will Away Song Premiere, EP Announcement

    Ryan Gardner
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:29 am
    We are excited to announce that A Will Away are releasing a new EP called Bliss on March 20th via Quiet Fire Media. The EP was produced by Gary Cioffi (Transit, Misser). We are premiering a new song off of it called "Cheap Wine," which you can hear below. The steady and somber guitars give the vocals a greater clarity, but the bass keeps your ears tuned in early on as it contrasts with the guitars and vocals. Rather than heavily focusing on a chorus or hook, "Cheap Wine" lets each instrument resonate. Those of you who miss The Dangerous Summer or enjoy The American Scene's…

    Viet Cong have had their upcoming show at Oberlin cancelled. The promoter responsible for the cancellation has issued a statement citing the nature of the bands name, which is lifted from a Vietnamese organization that tortured and ran prison camps in the Vietnamese War. The band has previously responded to such compaints, saying in part that "Vietnamese immigrants—the Vietnamese Canadians and Vietnamese Americans—will write us an email saying that their family was tortured by the Viet Cong for five years in a prison camp. ...

If I remember this correctly, someone at the sampling workshop that Thes and I put together asked what we thought of hip-hop instrumental remakes by jazz bands, citing BBNG as one example. I said I hadn’t heard their work but that, on principle, it always seemed like an odd idea since odds are, a jazz remake wasn’t going to improve upon the instrumental of the original.

Either way, I’m all about these kinds of unexpectedly funky tracks from the late ’70s and early ’80s since they take the borderline cheesiness of rock production in that era but marry it with some slick rhythm section. It’s a good combination. 365 Days of Soul, #65

    Iggy Azalea has claimed that she's glad to not have won a Grammy Award this year as it would only fuel her haters. Speaking on LA radio's Power 106 station, the Aussie rapper said: "I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, 'Fuck this. I don’t want it, take it. Get it away from me'." Azalea continued: "People already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more." The rapper, who was beaten to the Best Rap Album accolade by Eminem, also hit out at the perceived hypocrisy of critics that had deemed her possibly winning the award as cultural appropriation.

    Giorgio Armani has blamed Madonna for falling while while wearing one of his designs at the recent Brit Awards and branded the pop star "difficult". Madonna fell backwards down a flight of stairs after an Armani cape she was wearing did not come loose in time and a dancer pulled it while still fastened. However, speaking at his autumn/winter 2015 show during Milan fashion week, Armani said that a change to the original design led to the technical issue.

To quote Punk News, "On the album, frontman Tesco Vee has several songs about V.D., a few about beating people up, at least one trip to a low-rent strip club, and enough insults at people of various backgrounds that show he can't possibly be bigoted because he hates everyone."

    BlackBook
    3 Mar 2015 | 2:05 pm
    In case you didn’t already know that young Parisian sensation Simon Porte Jacquemus likes to make a statement, today’s show made it clear. Jacquemus ventured into #NSFW territory with off-kilter, not-really-there shirts formed out of scraps fabric or pairs of hands (a Margiela throwback, for sure). Despite what might otherwise read as being sexed-up, the effect remained playful, and a little bit surrealist, thanks in part to the child-like appeal of face paint, over-sized trousers, and one very memorable pair of overalls, and a lack of shoes altogether.

But at the end of the day, I’m fine with just being a pop musician.” But here we are in 2015, and we’re five days away from the anxiously anticipated opening of Björk, her eponymous retrospective at that exalted temple of modernism, New York’s MOMA. We still sit on the fence about such matters; after all, the last thing such a soaring spirit as she would seem to need is to be restrained within museum walls. Yet this…

    “The movie was never meant to be anything like an exposé of the mores and manners of Hollywood, nor as it a takedown because that would be so boring to us,” says screenwriter Bruce Wagner when we sat down at SoHo House last week to discuss his new film, David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars. “I was influenced more by people like August Strindberg or Joe Orton when writing the script. I wanted it to be tight and wild and subversive and funny, and in a mystical way.” Having begun writing the script in the early 1990s, two decades would pass before his debauched Hollywood melodrama…

    YouTube has succeeded in establishing itself as the premier destination for online video consumption, so how is it possible for a platform with an audience exceeding 1 billion viewers to remain an unprofitable business? It's really quite simple.  YouTube is stuck.  The company is treading water - while top competitors are gaining ground. According to the Wall Street Journal, YouTube's posted revenue of $4 billion in 2014 (up $1 billion from the year previous) and 6% contribution to Google's sales did not yield a profit. In fact, reportedly, the online video platform is barely breaking…

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

Hanna opened with a striking statement: “First time I heard your voice,” she said, “I went and bought everything of yours – trying to imitate you but find my own style.” Despite being two singers known for very different genres – they’re icons of 1960s teen pop, and riot grrl and feminist dance-punk, respectively – Gore and Hanna do have strikingly similar singing voices. In her 1960s recordings, Gore’s voice sounds distinctly…

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

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

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

    Alex Ross
    3 Feb 2015 | 1:19 pm
    Portrait by Tom Bachtell. I can hardly bring myself to write this, because I do not yet accept it, but my dear friend Andrew Patner, one of the wisest, wittiest, most generous, most avid, most altogether vital people in the world of the arts, died this morning in Chicago, at the age of fifty-five. It was a constant joy to have Andrew in my life, and it was an endless, enriching education. He offered advice, he offered criticism, he offered time, he offered knowledge (staggeringly encyclopedic knowledge, on every imaginable subject), and, above all, he offered companionship. I feel lost and…

    It’s quite easy to forget the raw, unfettered female talent in Nashville. Radio is deceiving that way. But snatch up a dozen or so of the brightest, most promising singer-songwriters and plop them down in an intimate setting, and they’ll recharge your optimism for the future of country music. That’s what happened during Sunday night’s (March 1) Girls of Winter showcase at City Winery, as America’s Got Talent’s Emily West, The Voice champion Cassadee Pope, high-flying songstress Caitlyn Smith, the calmly-measured chanteuse Maren Morris and more gathered to…

She’s seemed to have embraced her new found love of Oklahoma and planted her roots there, but where do her loyalties honestly lie? “Oklahoma has welcomed me, and I found my second home in my husband’s home state,” she tells the Tulsa World. “We love living there on our farm. I am a fan of the small-town feel, and I get to be myself,” she says of her adopted hometown of Tishomingo. While that may seem like the big state…

    A promoter at Oberlin College in Ohio has cancelled Viet Cong's upcoming concert date on campus because of the "problematic nature" of the band's name. Promoter Ivan Krasnow issued a statement over the weekend to explain why he cancelled the show on Oberlin's Facebook page, which Pitchfork found and wrote about.  "As the person behind booking this band, I would first and foremost like to apologize on both my and my booking organization’s behalf for inviting a band with a name that deeply offends and hurts Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American communities, both in Oberlin and beyond."…

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

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

The third cornerstone of Power, Path and Performance vocal training involves a deep understanding of acting technique. Without it, the voice is useless.ActingIf you've ever had a good acting coach or director, you will remember that acting is very much about making choices. Even with a script and directing…
  • Numb Singing Or Speaking Voice? Question: What Are You LOOKING At?

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

    Priyanka Singh
    27 Feb 2015 | 1:38 am
    Every artistic medium has its set of purists. Theatre is no different; ergo, it is obvious that there will be many who won’t entirely agree with CinePlay, a new genre of theatre or films. CinePlay combines cinema and theatre – they direct plays in a studio set-up to create movies and trailers out of them. CinePlay is the brainchild of Subodh Maskara, CEO and founder, and Nandita Das, co-founder and strategic director. To celebrate CinePlay’s first year anniversary, the CinePlay Festival kickstarts today (February 27) in Mumbai, at Matterden, and will screen CinePlays every…

    In April 2006, after the erstwhile HRD Minister Arjun Singh decided to implement 27% reservation for OBCs across a multitude of universities, Delhi became the focal point of the anti-reservation protests that swept across the country. The political discussion, and the protests that followed, became an important part of my life in Delhi, and the lives of kids around me. We’d been thrust into a situation that was impossible for us to understand. Our entire lives, or at least that’s what it felt like at the time, depended on whether we chose to join the fight or not.

  • Review: Pariah – Frame/Frame

    Ritwik Deshpande
    23 Feb 2015 | 12:41 am
    While Nikhil Kaul can’t make his apocalyptic obsessions more obvious, it’s clear that his definition of the word ‘apocalypse’ extends to matters both personal and worldly. He borrowed the title of his last release, Hard Boiled Wonderland, from a Murakami novel in which the protagonist faces the prospect of being trapped in his subconscious for the rest of his life. The release itself sounded subdued and insular — Kaul had squarely fixed his sights inwards. The relative expansiveness of its follow-up, Pariah, is made immediately apparent by the cover. The me-against-the-world image…

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

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

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

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

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

  • Another McClurkin Loss: Cheri McClurkin

    Bob Marovich
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:25 pm
    From Donnie McClurkin’s Facebook page. First Olivia and now Cheri.  Please keep the McClurkin family in your prayers.

  • Audrey Cher Steps Out in Her Destiny

    Bob Marovich
    3 Mar 2015 | 1:03 pm
    By Bob Marovich When Audrey Cher was born, her parents wanted to make certain her name meant something in the entertainment industry. So they called her Audrey after Audrey Hepburn and Cher for, well…Cher. “I’m walking in my name,” gospel singer and recording artist Audrey Cher told JGM last week. Born in Mount Clemens, Michigan, a town that once drew Hollywood celebrities to its mineral bathhouses, Audrey moved to Detroit, where she attended Bishop G. M. Boone’s New Liberty Apostolic Faith Church. There, she sang in the choir and at thirteen, joined the praise team. It would be…

    “He Delivered Me” Pastor Marlon Lock From the CD Good Seed Project www.pastormarlonlock.com Pastor Marlon Lock’s testimonial “He Delivered Me” has all the flavor of a quartet song, complete with the up-tempo southern-fried backbeat, the congregational song lyric, the call and response between male background vocalists, and the extended vamp.

  • Album Review: ‘Pop2!’, Dana Countryman

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

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

    Peter Lee
    14 Feb 2015 | 11:19 am
    Winter's waning, but Jason Brewer of the Explorers Club has a bad cold. His voice is shot, and on the second leg of this two-show tour of the Southeast, he'll need an interpreter. The interpreter is Wyatt Funderburk, one of the newest members of a revamped Explorers Club that has changed with each album. The band has almost completed its third album, slated for release in late summer. Brewer met Funderburk, who was already an Explorers Club fan, on Facebook, and the two used to trade spins on the now-defunct turntable.fm. When Brewer moved to Nashville, he asked Funderburk to be in the new…
  • Grammy Shmammy 2015

    Peter Lee
    9 Feb 2015 | 6:06 pm
    Last night's Grammy awards show bored many viewers. Maybe it's because there was very little controversy (Hi, Kanye! You're back!) and few bizarre performances. It was just a straight-up pop music show, interspersed with Sam Smith and Beck going onstage to accept awards every 15 minutes. Yes, many of the songs performed were low-key, but who cares? They were still full of power and emotion, and for a few exceptions, the musicianship was better than any Grammy show I've seen in a while. The Best: 1. Poor Hozier. The emerging artist from the UK performed his song "Take Me to Church" and was…
  • Happiness on Steroids: ‘I Found Love’, The Free Design

    25 Jan 2015 | 1:46 pm
    Have you ever experienced a perfect day, where the sun is shining, it's not too hot, and you're in a field running and laughing, butterflies and flowers all around you, birds landing on your fingers as you sing to them? No? I think the Free Design has. The brother and sister quartet blended unbelievable harmonies to some of the most upbeat, innocent songs of the late 1960s, the epitome of sunshine pop - "Daniel Dolphin," "Bubbles," "Kites are Fun" (they are!) and the subject of today's post, "I Found Love." Someone in the group must have just gone on the best date of their lives, for the song…

    How to be Successful with Email Marketing 101 The previous three articles in the “Email Marketing 101″ series dealt with three core concepts: Why you should be email marketing; When to start email marketing; and How to start email marketing. But email marketing isn’t an end point, or a static goal. It’s an ongoing process. While automation can and does yield significant benefits, you still have to make certain commitments to be successful.

    How to Start with Email Marketing Honestly: Don’t over think it. Sending blog updates by email is not only great, but also very much good enough – you’re saving your blog’s subscribers the time and effort to remember to go back to your site. Your content is already great, and now people have invited you to send it to them whenever you write. That’s what they want; so go ahead. Give it to them. Here’s how you get started: Choose a reputable, supported email service (because nobody wants to end up being labeled spammer, right? Right). Behave well, always (ALWAYS) use dual opt-in,…

Good news! It’s a one word answer: Now. No, I’m serious. Don’t delay because “I’m not big enough” or “I don’t have enough traffic.” You simply don’t know when and which subscriber will be the one that buys from you, spreads the word about you, or invests in you.

    Why Email When you think about building your site for the first time, you’re probably also thinking about your Facebook presence. After all, that’s where the people are, right? OK, that makes sense at a superficial level. But there are two problems with emphasizing platforms like Facebook instead of your own site and your own list: Facebook owns Facebook. Building your online presence on someone else’s digital turf which they adjust to please themselves (and not you) is risky. Facebook stinks for engagement. “Stinks” – a bit strong, you say? Well, according to…

    [Bear with me -- this isn't a sports piece] Wow – that was quite the game. As a Patriots fan living in New England I was very, very vested in the outcome, and I’m obviously happy with the result. But it was a darned close call. As those last few plays unfolded, there was the amazingly lucky catch that put the Seahawks at 1st and 6. Then, out of nowhere, New England got “lucky” twice: Firstly, when Seattle tried an unnecessarily high risk play just to waste time, and secondly when the rookie intercepted the ball, effectively securing victory for New England.

The magnificent Chrissoveloni bank building, now owned by Jen Chrissoveloni, the great-grandson of the 19th century banker, created a magnificent starting point for the retail project. According to the Romanian media, the current owner invested 1 million Euro in the renovation and leased the building to the Cărtureşti…

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

  • Playlist for a Violinist Who’s Never Listened to Classical Music: Part 1

    Viola da Voce
    30 Jan 2015 | 3:18 pm
    I recently began to teach a junior high-aged violinist who had played the violin for six years, but had never listened to classical music. As a Suzuki-trained violin teacher, I believe that listening to high-quality performances and recordings is a must. Learning how to play an instrument without listening to music would be the equivalent […]

    An investigation by the Department of Justice has found that the Ferguson police department engaged in a years-long pattern of racial discrimination against members of the black community, who of regularly had their constitutional rights violated. The numbers from the new report are staggering. From The New York Times: “Over the past two years, African-Americans—who make up about two-thirds of the city’s population—accounted for 85 percent of traffic stops, 90 percent of citations, 93 percent of arrests and 88 percent of cases in which the police used force.

  • Netanyahu: Deal with Iran Could Lead to Nation Getting the Nuclear Weapons

    Anonymous
    3 Mar 2015 | 12:22 pm
    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Congress in a speech today that the U.S. should abandon a proposed deal with Iran because it could help the country possess nuclear weapons in the near future. The U.S. is part of a coalition of nations negotiating an agreement with Iran for the country to temporarily stop pursuing nuclear technology. The U.S. and several other nations are offering relief from economic sanctions if Iran complies. In his speech, Netanyahu said, "We've been told that no deal is better than a bad deal. Well this is a bad deal, a very bad deal." He claimed that the…
  • Wrestling With God When He Doesn’t Seem Good

    A few things to remember when it's hard to believe God is there. There are days when I feel like I’m in the middle of an invisible tug of war. On one side is my childhood faith, an easy hope in a good and loving God, and a Sunday school answer for just about everything. On the other side is a front row seat to a brutally unjust world, a seemingly absent God, and an overwhelmed human race.
  • Report: Hillary Clinton Only Used Personal Email While Secretary of State

    Anonymous

    The New York Times is reporting that during her time as Secretary of State, presumable 2016 presidential contender and tween idol Hillary Clinton used her personal email exclusively, potentially violating government laws. If that's true, Clinton spent four years without the ".gov" email address she should have had as Head of State Department—an email address that would archive all of her communications. Her personal email address has no such archival guarantees How bad is it? Well, it's drawing some pretty public condemnation from both sides of the aisle. "It is very difficult to conceive…

Yes, Sheeran even went so far as to perform the full rap by Redman from the original version. “Dirrty” is just the latest song Sheeran has covered over his tenure.

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

It's a personal exercise in seeing what is out there, what works, and how contributors are trying to get other people involved.

Geekdom is interesting because there's no set definition of the word geek, so it's easy to apply to any large category of people that don't fit whatever the norm is, and whoever society wants to outcast at the time. Most popularly geeks are people who are outliers in school / college, and…

In his most recent book How To Create a Mind, he talks extensively about the evolution of Intelligence, with some flowery words convinces the reader that AI is possible, likely, desirable, and a natural progression of evolution. But not once does he broach the cultural or societal consequences of creating enhanced human intelligence. From a philosophical perspective I've pretty much always felt the way he does about free will, identity, consciousness. I'm a…

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

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

    Jonathon Sturgeon
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:15 am

It features 31 tracks, all eight living MCs, most if not all Wu-Tang affiliates (Sunz of Man, Redman, Cher), sirens, bombs, samples from kung fu cinema, and original skits. And it took more than two years to produce, mostly because eighty percent of its vocals were re-recorded to capture the intensity of early Wu-Tang records. The album’s title: Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. Here is some additional info: the CD is housed within two nickel-silver boxes that were hand-carved by a Moroccan artist and his team of ten workers…

    Mixi formed Stitched Up Heart in the aftermath of a not so desirable forced solo gig with Geffen Records as a result of her winning a Fuse TV reality show, Redemption Song in 2008. Mixi prefers to be fronting a band and only did a single and video for Geffen. If you haven’t heard Mixi and her band which is comprised of James Decker on drums, Meritt Goodwin on bass, Luke Man on guitar (and are currently in discussion about adding a second guitarist) they are far from the pop princess that Geffen wanted her to be.

    Matthew Hickey
    3 Mar 2015 | 9:30 am
    We’ve been super excited to share this one with you. Indeed, it’s no exaggeration to say that this month we’re featuring someone we consider to be one of the most unique and exciting songwriters we’ve stumbled upon in a long time. That said, you’d be forgiven if you’re not already familiar with the music of Lunifred Benjamin even if you’re a heavy consumer of new music. After all, much of the music blogosphere is currently fixated on synth pop, future pop, and electro pop (ok, anything with both synths and pop sensibilities) and it’s safe to say that Benjamin is…

    Here’s something new we’re excited about. Like a daydream of a beach vacation, “Miss Emerald Green” by Winnipeg’s Living Hour is ethereal, sweltering and tropical. Indeed, the atmosphere is starry and psychedelic but there’s a warm current of sweeping, beach-side melodies flowing just beneath the surface. Close your eyes, take a listen, and let the current carry you out to sea. We’re excited to hear more. You’ll also find the previously released single “Steady Glazed Eyes” below.

    Live music, po’ boys, crawfish, daiquiris, Abita beer, and Sazeracs. If you don’t manage to fit all of these in when you visit New Orleans, you’re doing it wrong. If you’re planning a trip to the Big Easy (perhaps you’re considering Jazz Fest in late April/early May?), here are some tips for good eats and drinks, based on some personal experience. The first thing you’ll notice is how the sound of music spills into the streets, and that everyone is wandering around trying to decide what their next meal or cocktail will be. While it’s quite the…

    The more I hear from Edmonton-based Faith Healer the harder I crush on them.

And, damn, does it ever sound incredible. More please.
  • Single Serving: Anna B Savage – 1

    Josh Henderson
    2 Mar 2015 | 10:50 am
    “It’s been said that I am strong and they’re not entirely wrong” singer-songwriter Anna B Savage admits about halfway through her powerful single ‘1.’ And strong is definitely the word I would use to describe the London musician’s sound. The track moves from finger plucked delicate guitar playing and intimate lyrics before opening up into a beautiful cathartic crescendo. Is anyone else getting serious Jeff Buckley vibes? This is the only song she’s released so far – but apparently there is an EP in the works. For now I’ll just have this one on repeat.

  • 10 Cool Movie Easter Eggs, Hey I Missed That

    Larry Fire
    3 Mar 2015 | 8:31 am
    An easter egg is an intentional hidden message, inside joke or feature in a work such as a video game, television program, movie or book. The term draws a parallel between the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many Western nations and the last Russian imperial family’s tradition of giving elaborately jeweled egg-shaped creations by Carl Fabergé which contained hidden surprises. Here are some cool movie easter eggs that you may have missed at the cinema, in the poster, on the soundtrack or DVD.

Whether it’s a tangle of power lines, an airport luggage carousel or a simple bendy straw, the placement of the advertisement can play as large a role as the campaign itself.  Here are some ads that illustrate this point.

    This post was first published in 2010, but the advice and experiences are still very relevant to musicians navigating the current music business.   You’re in music. You are frustrated with the industry, and on days where you are honest enough to admit it, you are jealous of several of the seemingly-talentless hacks that sit atop the pop charts. Here are some of the conclusions I have come to about my career path in and out of music.   Sometime in the last year or so I was aimlessly flipping through 400 channels of nothing when I noticed a familiar face on TV.

    Started teaching a new student saxophone, Maria. She has been playing for a few weeks now. The a few days ago she was having more trouble playing, seemed to give her a headache. So I checked out her mouthpiece and reed and saw a small chip. I could still play it, but it was more difficult. She had been careful with the reed, but that happens sometimes! And for someone just starting, it becomes a lot harder to play like that! You want to be very careful with reeds, since even a small chip will make it harder to play! And you should have some backups in case this does happen. Reeds don’t…

I think I used to have more discomfort in my bottom lip from the same thing happening. But some time back, I began to somewhat stick my bottom lip farther forward. Sounds like you’re also applying more pressure than is needed. So try curling your bottom lip a little less and using a bit less pressure. It will feel different at first, but probably…

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

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.

It’s fun to view the parades, appreciate the beauty of the costumes, laugh at the drunks, catch beads ‘n’ crap, dance to the marching bands and Mardi Gras music, visit with your neighbors, meet new people in the crowd. But. I have to tell you that Mardi Gras can be a royal pain in the ass. People in New Orleans accept it, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t bitch about it. Traffic is horrendous, and God help you if you make a wrong turn and get stuck in a queue that’s backed up because of a blocked-off…

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

Wow. Most of the protests against the ridiculous existing noise ordinance consist of musician and music fans bombarding City Hall or the Council Chambers with signage, musicians and brass bands.

    The Tallest Man on Earth has shared the first preview of Dark Bird Is Home, Kristian Matsson’s new LP due in May. “Sagres” — named after a small Portuguese village — drops the intimate, fingerpicked folk guitar and singing of his earlier work in exchange for lush strings, a traveling beat, and an echo-washed vocal. It’s a lovely fresh step, recalling Phosphorescent’s expanded sonic palette of late. Hear it above.

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

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

  • An Exciting time at Aircast Custom Music

    Megatrax
    9 Feb 2015 | 11:56 am
    For those uninformed, Aircast Custom Music is the custom scoring division of Megatrax.  When a project requires a unique and exclusive composition, that falls to Aircast for the entire production process (creation, arrangement, recording, mixing, mastering).  We are grateful that the same musical scale is used for all market segments – television, radio, corporate, etc.  We are able to use those same twelve notes for commercials, IDs, post scoring; the list goes on and on. No two projects are ever alike.  It may not be because we haven’t created something similar, but the client…

  • Best Album of 2015 So Far: Eternal Death’s New Self-Titled LP

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

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

    Let’s take a trip back in time. The year is 2006, and FensePost is only a few months old. I stumble upon a newly relocated indiepop artist called BOAT. The band moved from Chicago to Seattle and landed a spot on the Magic Marker Records roster for their debut LP Songs That You Might Not Like. Around the same time, via the twee-favorite Matinee Records imprint, I discovered Seattle indiepop band Math & Physics Club. Now, what do these two bands have to do with Unlikely Friends and their debut album Solid Gold Cowboy? The Answer: everything! Unlikely Friends is the pairing of D.

    A few weeks back, I grabbed “24” off a recent double single by Moonbabies for airplay on my radio show. Now the duo has announced their first new LP, to be called Wizards On The Beach, in seven years. The new LP is plush with melodic instrumentation and harmonic vocals. Blending classic pop and dance sensibilities, Moonbabies explore a dreamy pop sound on par with fellow Swedish artists like Fredrik and Icelandic musicians like Sunbear and Sin Fang. Songs siding on more subtlety, like “Raindrops” hint of danish artists like Mew and Oh No Ono while holding onto a…

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

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

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

    Teens are more loyal to streaming services than consumers of other ages, based on September 2014 polling by Nielsen Audio. When asked about the primary way in which they accessed music not available for streaming, US teen internet users said they found something else to listen to and waited for the original music to be available for streaming, compared with an average of 51% among all respondents. When they did go beyond streaming services like Spotify or Pandora, teens weren’t interested in paying—despite Piper Jaffray’s finding that MP3s, often paid for, grabbed the biggest portion of…

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

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

Destiny is a soft and sultry 808-leaning track, with a muted, mellow vibe that we have come to love from the Swedish songstress. The deep bounce should see this flooding the dancefloors with the lights down low very soon. To celebrate the new release, she’s paying the Old Blue Last on 3 March with labelmate Bewilderbeast, which sounds like quite the night. Akiine has signed to the wonderful…

La Priest is Sam Dust, formerly of Late of the Pier, a man that has always had a sound all to himself, and that is never more true than on Oino. It’s a truly imaginative cosmic mix of electro, funk, and prog rock that seems to suit someone who’s spent years in Greenland, studying the effects of the Ivittuut region’s electro-magnetic phenomena on recorded sound.

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

    28 Feb 2015 | 12:17 pm
    An astonishing event last night at Carnegie Hall, with Daniele Gatti leading the Vienna Philharmonic in Brahms Symphonies No. 3 and 1 (in that order). More to come, but suffice to say these were among the most intense, passionate performances of these symphonies I've ever heard, rivaled only by Berlin's cycle five years ago. More pics from last night's concert on the photo page. 
  • Preview: Vienna Philharmonic Brings Brahms Back to Carnegie Hall

    Peter Matthews
    27 Feb 2015 | 10:15 am
    After last year's month-long Vienna: City of Dreams festival, I seriously considered sitting out this weekend's appearance by the Vienna Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall, where they've visited almost every year since the 1950's. I mean, isn't there such a thing as too much of a good thing, especially when this year's program consists of Brahms' four symphonies and the German Requiem? (yawn.) No. Because it's Vienna. Because it's Vienna playing Brahms. Because these concerts are led by the extraordinary Daniele Gatti, soon to be the Chief Conductor…

  • A real good time with Patti Smith

    Allan MacDonell
    3 Mar 2015 | 12:19 pm
    Ed. Note: The following is an outtake from MacDonell’s book “Punk Elegies: True Tales of Death Trip Kids, Wrongful Sex, and Trial by Angel Dust,” which releases in April and is now available for pre-order. Before my punk rock story, long, long ago in January of 1976, I fell in love with Patti Smith on the Sunset Strip. I was still a kid, not old enough to legally purchase liquor in California. I’d shown up at the Roxy Theatre drunk and self-conscious, wearing a three quarter-length brown-leather car coat, with wide lapels. It was a cold night, and it was the only coat I…
  • Metallica to reissue 1982 demo on cassette tape

    For those who long for the days when Metallica was creating some of the most exciting, face-melting metal on the planet, the band is bringing a special treat as part of this year’s Record Store Day celebration. The band has decided to go as far back in their history as possible, announcing a formal, remastered issuing of their original demo tape from July of 1982. Featuring the unique lineup of Dave Mustaine on lead guitar and Ron McGovney on bass alongside James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, the “No Life ‘til Leather” tape was a series of seven songs that the band promoted to labels in…

    While the states have been basking in the glow of what seems to be Kanye West’s mea culpa tour of 2015, and wading through the muck of the Amber Rose/Kardashian beef, the UK’s prestigious Oxford University invited the multi-hyphenate artist to talk to their Oxford Guild Business Society. Despite living the lavish life, being berated for what critics call an out-sized ego, and creating sneakers that regularly break the banks of hypebeasts worldwide, West professed a far more egalitarian approach to art and commerce.   “They need to do award shows for Nobel Peace Prize,…
  • Noise rock heroes Cherubs return with ‘2 Ynfynyty’

    3 Mar 2015 | 9:30 am
    Cherubs’ new full-length “2 Ynfynyty” is the noise rock titans’ first new album since their 1994 classic “Heroin Man.” After officially announcing their long-rumored return last year, the Austin-based band has been releasing select tracks from “2 Ynfynyty,” and early reviews suggest the album, released on Tuesday, is well worth the 20-year wait. For the uninitiated, the short-lived but highly-influential Cherubs emerged out of Texas in the early 90s with a droning, fuzzy, drugged-out sound that incorporated plenty of humor and horror in equal measure. King Koffey of the…

    The incredibly popular weekly Twitch podcast put on by Monstercat was hacked last week in a unique push to debut a new artist Karma Fields. Not much is known about the mysterious group; however, it is a breath of fresh air to see some outside-of-the-box thinking when it comes to promoting a new single. Anybody can simply debut a new artist on a blog with a simple exclusive premier, but it takes some real tough brainstorming to come up with an idea that will both be mysterious and successful in getting people talking. Marketing ploy aside, “Build The Cities” is a quality electronic tune…

  • Interview: Adam Cohen

    12 Jan 2015 | 4:10 am
    THERE has long been a perception that the children of famous parents have it easier than most, but when your father is little short of a living legend, the towering comparative comes with a unique curse. As the son of Leonard Cohen, Adam Cohen has always faced a battle to be taken seriously as a singer-songwriter and not just one that’s in the industry off his father’s legacy. In 1998, aged 26, he released his first, eponymously titled solo album which made little impact. Six years later, he resurfaced as the frontman of a rock band, ‘Low Millions’, that never quite made it,…
  • Travel: Bruges

    TheEditor
    10 Jan 2015 | 6:50 am
    By Gemma Brosnan LONG thought of as a Sleeping Beauty reawakened, Bruges is an unspoiled late medieval fairytale made up of tangled streets, narrow canals, handsome squares and charming old gabled houses. Unfortunately the secret got out many years ago—tourism has long been the principal industry here – encouraging a constant crush of admirers, but the preservation orders and bylaws very strictly ensure that the centre maintains its ancient allure. Brussels may be the bustling gateway capital thirty miles away, but Bruges was once the artistic and commercial hub of the whole European…

    By Gemma Brosnan THERE’s no doubt the term English Riviera conjures up instant comparatives of everything the French do better, but perceptions of the old-fashioned seaside are slowly shifting away from the ‘kiss-me-quick, squeeze-me-slowly’ Brits-on-holiday mentality as the region undergoes an extensive revival. While Torbay’s sandy beaches and sub-tropical climate have long been highlighted, the region has recently undergone a dramatic refurbishment to shake off the dreary Fawlty Towers tagline that has haunted the tourist board for almost 40 years.

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

    Amongst all the YouTube noise, it's always so nice to come across a new video that blows you away.  Say hello to Tobias ElofI say 'blows you away' - this is not aggressive or overly energetic - it's just beautifully played. I first saw Tobias perform on stage at the Ukulele Festival Of Great Britain as part of Elof and Wamberg and was a total highlight of the festival.Sure, this is an advert for aNueNue - but give the guy credit where credit is due. He plays wonderfully. Oh, and speaking to him at Cheltenham, I realised he is also one of the nicest, most humble players I have met.And,…
  • Once Again on Ukulele Strumming Patterns.

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

The duo have been on a roll lately (really since I first heard their song Earthquake a few years ago). Seriously, though. They just keep getting better and better! Bruce and Marie’s music is usually bursting with so much joy and optimism. This new track is a perfect example of what you can expect from the band. In my opinion, Freedom Fry is at their best when they lean more on the Americana sound. They won me over when they incorporated it into 2012’s Outlaws…

With hints of Neil Young it tells of a love that never seems like it could work, it’s the wrong time, wrong place and it’s time to move on.

In this capacity he made connections with some of the top names in show business. Having already broadcasted on radio, this put Sullivan in a good position to move into the new medium of television.

Clark Terry lived so long I began to believe I would never see such a headline. Nevertheless, we are now faced with the reality of the loss of another great artist. Since I read about Clark Terry’s death, my thoughts went back to my childhood, long before my teen years to time spent with my father.

Throughout the years I have had conversations with musicians and music lovers about the merits of Grammy award nominations and wins.

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

Words get lost or the vocal seems buried during certain sections of the song. This is what automation is for. Go back and ride that sucker so every word can be heard.2.

    3 Mar 2015 | 8:00 am
    VIA IMPOSE: The duo of Justin Stivers and Justin Gonzales met through a drunken Craiglist post—one the former bassist of the Antlers (Stivers) and the other long involved in the Brooklyn music scene. What came out of this musical in vino veritas-style meeting led to Pet Ghost Project which eventually ran its course and has reformed as Passenger Peru. A mainstay of Fleeting Youth Records‘ (excellent) stable, Passenger Peru just released their second full-length, Light Places, a meandering and sonically diverse twelve-song encapsulation of the occasional macabre aspect of aging. Peru…
  • Van Dale- Bed of Bricks + Cassette Pre-Order

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

  • Pale Angels- If Only You're Gone

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

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

    This may be the catchiest, peppiest "hey, pay attention to what I'm saying" song I've heard in quite a while. FALLS' "Hey" is just the right mix of stubbornness and stick-to-your-convictions-ness with a dose of optimism. Check out the Australian band's ditty for a bit of motivation to get through this icy Monday.

    Ivan and Alyosha has been on the outskirts of my radar -- a TIOJ playlist addition here, seeing their name on a concert calendar there -- but I have unfortunately never taken the time to investigate them further. Thank goodness for a snow day and Noisetrade, because I'm never taking these fellas from Seattle off my radar.Listen to their latest single, "All This Wandering Around," and you'll be on the bandwagon with me. Then watch their trailer for their upcoming album (It's All Just Pretend drops May 5!!) and get even more excited.Did I mention that there's a set of brothers in the band?

A one page biography fills the role a cover letter might in a more traditional career and quickly provides context and information about a musician's sound, career, influences, and accomplishments. Talent buyers, radio station music directors, and everyone in between will use it to quickly understand who the artist is, so it needs to convey a clear, concise, and impressive message.CC by 2.0 peteoshea on FlickrSo how do you…

His candid interviews of some of the biggest names in music are top-shelf also. Neither Apple nor Lowe have said what his position will be.

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

Based in Budapest, Naked Woods explores a heady mix of orchestral vibes, a classical wide-ranging vocal and modern effects for an exquisite brand of lo-fi chamber pop. Eszter released her debut album on New Year’s Eve in 2013, with the simple aim of ticking off her bucket list but the Hungarian blogosphere got wind of it, she was a semi-finalist in 2014’s International Songwriting Competition, and hasn’t looked back.

It’s obvious that breathing is absolutely fundamental to singing, but you would be surprised a how many singers do not breathe correctly when singing, and it can cause all kinds of issues, such as running out of breath during a phrase etc. Before we get into the exercises, I want to cover what actually proper breathing is, so that when you get to the exercises, you are practicing the right thing.

These top 5 vocal exercises for singers really helped me to increase my range and learn how to mix my voice in the middle of my voice so I could eventually sing notes in the “cash register”.

    Andy Barnes
    10 Feb 2015 | 4:59 am
    Do you get nervous, or does your throat get tight when you approach a high note in a song? Have you ever wondered how to hit high notes in a song consistently without having to worry about it? What it high notes were just another note in the line of your voice that you had no problem hitting and you didn’t have to really think about it? When I sang songs that had high notes in them that were on the edge of my comfort factor, I often used to get tense and my throat would tighten when I tried to sing them.

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

    Listen to Niia´s Sexy Cover of FUTURE ISLANDS’ “SEASONS” Sometimes the best part of your entire week is a Soundcloud discovery that you listen to 10 times in a row and then send to every person you know.

    Following the release of the absolutely awesome ‘Pedestraian At Best‘, Australian chronicler of the mundane Courtney Barnett has shared a video for her latest track ‘Depreston’. The song explores the tedium of house hunting, but becomes much much more than that. Her focus on the tangible, and common place reminds me of Sun Kil Moon, film-maker Richard Linklater, and acclaimed underground comic book writer Harvey Pekar who stated that his work was, “autobiography written as it’s happening. The theme is about staying alive, getting a job, finding a mate,…

    Expect Delays is the second album from London’s Evans The Death. I’ve never really bought into the ‘tricky second album’ theory, just sounds like an excuse to cover disappointing follow ups to me, but then I’ve never had to make one! Evans The Death certainly haven’t worried about the difficulty of following up their 2012 self-titled debut. This album feels like it has scale. There’s a lot going on across it’s 13 tracks, in particular a lot of hurt and anger. Musically it dips into various styles but mainly joins the dots between indie-pop and…

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