    Everybody had the moment when they realized they messed up. When Lady Gaga’s debut album “Fame” was nominated for six Grammy Awards, it was at this moment, music executive L.A. Reid knew he messed up. The story goes like this. Reid had signed her when he was the head at Island Def Jam and then dropped her. What would you do if you were a music executive working with Lady Gaga in the beginnings of her career. Would you drop her?

Working from their home studio, the band are putting the final touches on their debut EP, scheduled for release in the Autumn.

    This was far more entertaining than I anticipated :) YouTube Description: There is growing anger against Brazil's government, hit by a worsening economic situation, a massive corruption scandal and boycotts to austerity measures in Congress. Many are calling for the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff, who is only eight months into her second mandate, but currently there is no proven legal basis for that. Even Brazilians have a hard time explaining how the situation grew into such an imbroglio - so the BBC's Julia Carneiro in Rio put together a glossary of the key words to understand what…

  • Album Review: Eszter Balint, “Airless Midnight”

    Rob Ross
    27 Aug 2015 | 7:30 am
    You might recognize Eszter Balint‘s name from the television series Louie, in which she played (during an end-of-the-season arc) the neighbor/love interest to Louis C.K.  But here, the Hungarian-born actress shows her true talent and skill as a singer, songwriter and violinist.  Airless Midnight is her second solo album – her first in a decade (!) and her third overall.  Here, she’s joined by such talents as Dave Schramm and Marc Ribot, and this album is, indeed, a revelation. Opening with “The Mother,” the slow-syrupy almost-jazz groove takes you into a…

    If you’re looking for a compilation of classic soul hits you have a great many options. The Motown and Stax hits in particular have been reissued, remastered, boxed, vinyled, and collected in deluxe sets. And the hits are great, but what about all of those wonderful soul records that weren’t hits, but are deserving of a wider audience than they got on their initial release? Thankfully, there are choices there too, with many forgotten records having been gathered over the years in compilations that vary in quality from sublime to subpar. Last week Rockbeat Records released a…

    There are bound to be some very strong and differentiating opinions on this new solo album from Grace Potter – best known for fronting jam-band favorites Grace Potter & The Nocturnals.  I found her by way of my closest friend, whose opinion I trust completely.  She hipped me to them with their self-titled 2010 album and for someone who never paid much attention to the new generation of jam bands, this record stood out and made me a fan. On Midnight, her official second solo album, it’s nowhere near what one would expect as this album is 100% hi-gloss, danceable,…

    26 Aug 2015 | 5:14 am
    It would appear at a quick glance that late-summer 2015 will be a great time for piano pop. Digging down into it some more, one finds it is only half-true. First the good news: Joe Jackson’s Fast Forward, his first album of all-new material since 2008’s Rain, is a marvel. It is as if Jackson stepped into a time machine to record a natural follow-up to his last record with A&M, Blaze of Glory. Fast Forward has him singing as if time never passed, and the songs maintain his preternatural compositional maturity…for the most part. Sometimes the album can be too mature, with…

    I’m not an economist, nor am I a financial guru who understands the finer points of stock trading.

Case in point: the recent stock market meltdown.

    “It was acceptable in the 80s…” The standard MIDI DIN cable – that’s the big honkin’ connector you use on most of your MIDI gear – has become the bane of music hardware makers. The problem is, as gear has gotten smaller, the standard DIN connector hasn’t. And that’s a big problem, literally. To add a MIDI port to a device, you need to not only have enough clearance for the connector itself, but the whole around the port and the physical assembly that contains it. Speaking as a hardware maker, that takes up space you can’t even see…

But the best part of all of this may be this oddly eerie, beautiful set of ambient tunes, slowing down the best-known Windows branding by 4000%. This is what Brian Eno sounds like when you Brian Eno-ify Brian Eno. While we’re at it, it’s worth revisiting some of the startup sounds over the years. Brian Eno is best known among the startup sound composers, for his contribution to Windows 95. To my mind, it’s the best of the startup sounds.

    Falling Stones: Come Back To Your Lover (Suriname, 196?, S/T) Of all the records I brought back from Paris, the Falling Stones LP ranks high simply because I marvel at how well this famed group from Surinam nailed the Stax sound. In particular, lead singer Louis Windzak does a mean Otis Redding, especially on this song, an original by the group that easily sounds like it could have been a cover of some Memphis single. Thanks to Sir Shambling’s Deep Soul Heaven, I learned that the reason there’s such a heavy Southern soul influence in Surinam had to do with the importation of…

Over the next few posts, I’ll be talking about records brought back from both but I had to start with this song in particular. I first wrote about this here, back in 2004.

It tells a serendipitous set of stories behind where N.W.A. shot the cover photo for their first release and how it plugs into a longer history of music in Los Angeles.

Wang on Mixcloud I finished most of this last summer; it was meant to be a summery vibe mix but by the time I actually had the finishing touches applied…it was close to winter and I figured, heck, I’ll just wait until things thaw out again. I hadn’t made a purely hip-hop-centric mix in years and I don’t know why I don’t do this more. 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…

His first album, Acoustimatic Sorcery, was released in 2012 and was comprised of recordings Beal cut on a cassette karaoke machine. His latest record, Noctunes (out August 28th through Tender Loving Empire records) is something special. […]
  • Pavement :: The Secret History, Vol. 1

    Satisfied '75
    17 Aug 2015 | 1:00 pm
    Unlike others from their decade (the 90s), Pavement, especially in the early years, left off as many a gem as they included on their proper LP output. And as recently stated by Malkmus and Kannberg, the “B-sides” from this era (almost) form a sort of alternate history of the band — you know, something akin […]

    Satisfied '75

    When John Hulburt’s private press release Opus III came out in 1972, his hometown Chicago was awash in the sounds of Curtis Mayfield and Alligator Records. Isolated from the solo acoustic scenes happening in Berkeley, New York City, and elsewhere, Hulburt’s self-released LP was an oddity in a city tailing off a solid ‘60s rock […]

  • Girls Names parody '80s music shows & awkward interviews with "A Hunger Artist" video (watch)

    27 Aug 2015 | 11:26 am
    by Bill Pearis Girls Names forthcoming album, Arms Around a Vision, is easily the best thing they've ever done and, in my opinion, one of 2015's best LPs. They've come a long way from being the Irish analog to Crystal Stilts, and while they're still endebted to early '80s post-punk, they've really made it their own -- snarling, bleak and very compelling. The band also have a good sense of humor, too, as seen in the new video for "A Hunger Artist." Directed by Matthew Reed, it's a dead-on parody of '80s-era UK music shows with a hilariously awkward band interview followed then a mimed "live"…

Where 2013's Long Enough to Leave had more of a garagey flavor (thanks perhaps to producer Kelley Stoltz), but with Papercuts' Jason Quever behind the boards for this one, the band have taken on a more shimmery sheen. You can get a taste via sun-dappled first single "Doorframe." Listen, via Stereogum, below... Continue reading "The Mantles announce 'At Odds End' LP, share "Doorframe"" at brooklynvegan

    The following guest post comes from Peter Csathy, a venture capitalist, media/tech executive, journalist, and CEO at Manatt Digital Media. We live in a world where many share the belief that content is ‘free,’ while rampant piracy has been significantly curtailed by new legitimate services and business models (like subscription streaming).  But, it just ain’t so. One of the biggest and pervasive myths is that piracy is actually decreasing.  That couldn’t be further to the truth: Cisco forecasts that file-sharing in North America will grow a massive 51% from 2014-2019.

This year the festival seemed to fix the planning problems, and now that refined sugars were allowed people could buy themselves all the Coke they wanted. There was a scare though that the festival might be in for some backlash regarding the lineup’s constant state of flux leading up to the festival. This began…

Here it just sort of teases you a little bit…catching a glimpse of cardinal out of the corner of your eye before it disappears behind a tree. NOLA heat is not subtle….a black iron skillet dropped on a shoeless toe. Nevertheless, who wants to turn on an oven or stovetop in August? And why would you?

It’s the way I feel when I head to Vidalias this time of year, and see the fruit and produce that was grown just around the corner and picked this morning. I want to capture it before it’s gone and I’m back to coaxing tenderness and sweetness out of tubers and alliums with low heat as the snow falls. Right…

There, she will be joining a different sort of racial history from that of classical ballet. When On the Town debuted towards the end of World War II, its original production featured a mixed-race cast and…

    18 Aug 2015 | 1:30 am
    It’s a cartoon image from my childhood: a man with wild hair, wearing a topcoat, and frantically waving a baton with a deranged look on his face. In fact, this caricature of what a composer should look like was probably inspired by the popular image of Beethoven: moody, distant, a loner… a genius lost in his own world. To some degree or another, this clichéd portrait of a “typical” composer has been in the popular lexicon for many, many years, and has been stamped on composers from Mozart all the way to those in the middle of the 20th century. Stravinsky and his contemporaries seem…

    Robert Carl: "I’ve come to feel that Feldman was to Cage somewhat as Berg was to Schoenberg—the composer who took a technical and conceptual armature from his mentor and combined it with an ear that was able to render even the most dissonant harmonic materials sensuous. The great surprise is that his music is some of the most beautiful of the second half of the 20th century."

  • Input Error (The Horrorist remix) – Haujobb

    Oliver Chesler
    25 Aug 2015 | 1:52 pm
    Input Error by Haujobb I am happy to announce a remix I did for the German EBM band Haujobb has been released. The song is called Input Error. It is on the first single from their next album called Blendwerk. The wonderful Sid Lamar (Schwefelgelb) also did a remix. As with many of my remixes I almost like to redo the track. For Input Error I used the underrated Kawai R100 drum machine. The bassline is an Alesis Microbrute. I re-arranged the vocals to be a “more standard” arrangement. I really wanted something that could be played regularly out at a club and also have an 80s Wax…
  • The Horrorist DJ Set and Live at the Bossa Nova Civic Club

    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:

  • What is happening in Macklemore's new single, 'Downtown'?

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:46 am
    Macklemore just released his new single, "Downtown," and it features Kool Moe Dee and Melle Mel rapping about mopeds and mom jeans, name-checking Uber and Blackstreet and tiramisu around a Killers-like bridge toward a Pat Benatar-inspired chorus. Confused? So were we. Our team of producers are scattered across the country from Halifax to Vancouver, so a lot of our communication is done via a chat room. Here's just some of what was said as we all listened to "Downtown" together: "Macklemore really likes rapping about buying things." "'White walls on the wheels like mayonnaise'? Why, Kool Moe…

    LISTEN audio The Arcs Yours, Dreamily Stream to Sept. 4 The Arcs is the new project from Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach. Yours, Dreamily, their debut album, is available Sept. 4. Stream it above for one week. While some of the songs on Yours, Dreamily feel very much like an extension of the Keys' last album — the dark, soulfully psychedelic Turn Blue — it only serves as a starting point. Auerbach and a gang of musicians he’s worked with closely over the years as a producer on albums for Dr. John, Lana Del Rey, Ray LaMontagne and more, venture into a dizzying array of influences,…

It’s such a confident, cohesive record, full of alt-pop anthems and tracks ripe for club-ready remixes. Stream The Gates above one week before its release, and pre-order the album here. The Gates feels and flows like an album by a band that’s already scored a ton of number one hits. And in a way, they have. The Toronto-based group’s 2012 debut EP, Wake All My Youth, was a hit and has kept them too busy touring to follow up with anything as basic as, you know, writing music.

ROM-DROM is the first solo venture from Two Hours Traffic's Liam Corcoran, former frontman for the East Coast rock band that broke up back in 2013 largely for financial reasons.  The album is a mere seven songs, but it feels much deeper than that. From the opening track, "July-eh, July-oh," to the sparse, meditative "Catching the Stars," Corcoran walks the road laid by the likes of the Cuddys and Keelors who have come before him, but with a lighthearted, bouncier step. Matt Barber bouncy. Justin Rutledge pre-Ondaatje bouncy. And that's…

Pure and full, it rings out unadorned in the opening moments of her new album, Dynamite!, before the band fills in and we’re off. Listen to the album above or pre-order it here. A slap of Aretha-esque soul, a twist of Patsy’s country and Wanda’s rockabilly. Then the flashes of Gillian Welch's Americana and modern retro, à la Sharon Jones and Amy Winehouse. But rather than a messy mixtape of influences and disparate touchstones, Neilson’s…

    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.

    Robert Carl
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:26 am
    One side of the survivability equation is the caution-to-the-wind embrace of a personal vision, fearless of the consequences, no matter how impractical. The other side thinks outside of the individual and looks at the times.

    Some companies advertise the pieces we write for free as new commissions. I vote for an immediate end to this practice. By all means, call it a world premiere by the Next Important Composer of Our Time. Phrase it however you need to make it sound sexy and get butts in seats, but it is not a commission. It is unpaid labor from which others stand to gain.

  • Album Review: ‘Revolving Door,’ Pseudonym

    Peter Lee
    26 Aug 2015 | 4:32 am
    Pseudonym's Revolving Door found its way into my inbox several months ago, where it gestated quietly before I got around to listening to it. What I found when I finally put my headphones on and pressed play was one of the biggest surprises of 2015 - a low-fi, extremely melodic release by a singer-songwriter who has been hiding his light under a bushel for too long. Paul Desjarlais is the genius behind Pseudonym, which, of course, is a pseudonym for his fake band and his fake bandmates, who even have their own fake bio. It's an outlet for Desjarlais, who hasn't released an album of new…
  • Album Review: ‘Crayons & Angels,’ Brandon Schott

    Peter Lee
    24 Aug 2015 | 6:48 am
    "Let's get lost in the sound," says Brandon Schott in his track "Verdugo Park" from Crayons & Angels, his fifth album. And it's a wonderful wall of sound that Schott creates, a soundscape of instruments creating magnificent stories that hearken to an innocent, playful time. Schott's day job is in the music business. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, he obviously knows his way around musical instruments, and he brings it all out in the opening montage, "Dandelion" (the title of his first album after being diagnosed with cancer). He uses a Rhodes piano, toy piano, dulcitone, and…

    Columbia House, the popular mail-order record club that boasted four, or eight, or 12, or even 13 albums for a paltry sum ranging from a penny to a dollar, is finally going belly up. I'm surprised it lasted this long; perhaps it's just my lack of reading magazines and finding its multi-page spread of albums, but I didn't even know it still existed. The "Spotify of the 80s," as the Verge put it, declared bankruptcy this week after declining sales over the past 19 years. Simply put, people aren't buying CDs, much less albums, cassettes or 8-tracks anymore. I never subscribed to the service -…
  • 13 Truly Bad Lyrics

    Peter Lee
    1 Aug 2015 | 9:06 am
    Picking bad lyrics from pop music is like shooting fish in a barrel. It's too easy. Pop music, in and of itself, is supposed to be about the hook, the melody, the chord progressions - not the lyrics. We leave that to Bob Dylan and Springsteen. I'm sure I'll get lots of additions to this list, but I compiled this list simply based on my six-hour trip to the beach this week. They're not the worst ever, but they're pretty bad. Like I said, this was too easy. Maybe I'll do part 2 based on the ride back home. "Sometimes When We Touch" - Dan Hill. Sometimes when we touch / the honesty's too much…

    We hesitate to use words such as charming or sweet here as they might imply excessive cuteness, but the recently completed tiny chapel on Cyprus does have a welcoming, approachable appearance that made us contemplate tiny, cozy spaces. However, we were also immediately aware that this is sanctuary, not some dwelling for friendly trolls. We were also drawn to reflect on visits to small Greek mountain villages where tiny white churches cling to seemingly inaccessible cliffs. And glancing inside and seeing the gorgeous hanging lighting fixtures, we remembered our visits to stalactite caves on…

At the same time, we were also reminded of how much we love Farca’s elegant work in general. To start with, the Barrancas House in Mexico City had a lot going for it before Farca came along. It is located on a sloped property so that the four levels of the house, from basement all the way to the top, or second, floor, are all in fact on ground level. In addition, the site overlooks a great wooded area with grown trees and greenery. The house had good bones…

The image is called “Bubble” but we keep seeing all sorts of strange worlds in it. This piece has all the hallmarks of an eye-catching conversation piece. It does stand out. It will be noticed in whatever space you’ll hang it. In addition, it has a hypnotizing effect. In its enigmatic core there appears to be an explanation. If you just look at it long enough, you will solve the puzzle. You will figure it out.

    For more than a decade, shared offices have been an option for business in most larger cities around the world. Creating and renting out such premises is a highly competed business and success is not guaranteed.   The necessary ingredients include a fine balance of location-appropriate sizing, pricing and design, a customizable set of services and facilities, and of course a favorable location.   We’ve seen both boring and inspiring examples. Some of them are not much more than bland office pens or chairs and desks for rent. Some are too casual and communal, or veering too far…

In a post on his Christianity Today blog, The Exchange, Stetzer said the number is based on “conversations with leaders from several denominations in the U.S. and Canada,” adding, “To be honest, the number of pastors and church leaders on Ashley Madison is much lower than the number of those looking to have an affair.” Along…

    Getting to the top of a 45˚ hill after an hour's climb with heavy packs we spotted a small shape on a rock. It's back-lit - but through our binoculars we're trying to figure out whether it's a marmot or a ground squirrel. Our hopes say marmot, but we know in our hearts that it will be a ground squirrel if we get a bit closer. Cassie puts down the binoculars, hands them to me, and then says, loudly and surprisingly "BEAR". On our right a young looking grizzly bear has just crested onto the top of the hill, and it starts ambling towards us. Immediately we do everything right - our arms shoot…
  • Are You Incapable of Complexity?

    2 Aug 2015 | 9:28 pm
    I'm reading Mountains Beyond Mountains - the story of a doctor / anthropologist who decided to dedicate his life to building a hospital in one of the poorest parts of Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world. It's filled with nuggets of information that could - and probably should - alter your world view. One of my favorites is the Haitian concept of blan. Here's a quote: But a blan isn't necessarily white-skinned; one might say, every blan becomes white by virtue of being a blan. The African American medical student Farmer [who is white] had brought here some months back, for…

  • The One Where Phoebe Sang “Smelly Cat” Onstage with Taylor Swift

    Moze Halperin
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:44 am
    If Taylor Swift wanted Stravinsky to conduct The Firebird with her live in Los Angeles, the dead composer would probably gladly disinter himself from his San Michelle grave to join her onstage. For at this point, it seems that with the drop of a name and the booking of a stadium, Swift has the power to bring anyone onstage with her. Yesterday, news circulated that she’d been joined by St. Vincent and Beck at her Tuesday concert. On Monday, it was Ellen DeGeneres. Last night, the guest was even more unexpected, and arguably her most exciting yet: Lisa Kudrow came onstage, and the two…
  • Watch: Beck and St. Vincent Perform “Dreams” with Taylor Swift

    Moze Halperin
    26 Aug 2015 | 11:55 am
    During her concert in Los Angeles on Monday, Taylor Swift surprised audiences with guest appearances by Ellen DeGeneres and Alanis Morissette; last night’s inclusion of more surprise guests was thus a little less of a surprise — though the guests themselves were, perhaps, more surprising. Beck and St. Vincent joined Swift onstage at the Staples Center to sing Beck’s “Dreams.”  Following the performance, Swift tweeted: Getting to play 'Dreams' with @Beck and @st_vincent is something I'll remember forever. I can't even express it.
  • How Willis Earl Beal Created Himself Through Negating His Self

    Moze Halperin
    26 Aug 2015 | 8:30 am
    When Willis Earl Beal was recently interviewed by both Paper and Spin, he was living as a vagabond. His new label, Tender Loving Empire, had been helping to put him up through connections and motels in Portland. And when he didn’t have one of those places to sleep, he was prepared with a tent, to take shelter in a park, with his new girlfriend. The day he spoke with Paper, he’d just missed a shift at a bottle factory. This is a man who, two years ago, released an album featuring Cat Power through XL’s Hot Charity subsidiary, as part of a five-album deal. He had toured the…
  • The Best Part of Yo La Tengo’s ‘Stuff Like That There’ Isn’t the Covers — It’s the Band

    Judy Berman
    26 Aug 2015 | 6:45 am
    There is no heavy lifting involved in listening to Yo La Tengo’s 14th album, Stuff Like That There, but that’s not why it’s a cause for celebration. The durable 30-year-old Hoboken trio leaves aside the guitar squalls, soundtrack atmospherics, and fuzz obfuscation (for now) and finally does what many listeners and record company managers have been waiting a quarter-century for: a return to the hushed acoustic territory of 1990’s Fakebook. But that’s not exactly why it’s a cause for celebration either. While it’s accurate to call Stuff Like That There…

    "Itch" is the name singer Jonny "Itch" Fox goes by these days. He is a British music artist who was once the lead singer in a ukelele punk band called The King Blues.

    Twenty-two year old singer-songwriter Jake McMullen cites Ryan Adams, Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow as musical influences – and after listening to his new single “Always,” those reference points make total sense. The song is an introspective, soul-baring ballad of loneliness, disillusionment and desperation carried by the conviction in McMullen’s voice. And while the influence of those aforementioned acts are certainly present, I’m most prominently reminded of Country Sleep, the 2013 album from Night Beds, and the wonderful, wistful melodies heard…

So you don’t need a special transmitter when you send audio to a Bluetooth wireless speaker. The speakers will receive the signal directly from your phone or whatever device you’re…

One of these issues which is encountered quite often is a problem with wireless interference. Let me explain a bit about the background of interference. Loudspeakers which utilize the wireless signal within specific frequency bands. These frequency bands are usually fairly crowded. The most commonly used frequency bands are the 900 MHz band as well as the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz bands. Unfortunately, wireless networks also occupy the same frequency…

Tank and many other artists, particularly the veterans, put so much effort into an album– only to see it under promoted and under played. We get it… artists want airplay (as they should).

The octave key helps all those notes play more easily. It has to do with the positioning of the holes on the horn connected to the octave key and the acoustics of how the saxophone works.

  • The Devil’s In The Details

    Jan Ramsey
    22 Jul 2015 | 4:27 pm
    One of my favorite all-time songs is Todd Rundgren’s “Want of a Nail,” because its lyrics tell the story of how the devil’s in the details. 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. It’s becoming harder for everyone to make sure every detail is examined because we’re all bombarded with so much…

    The debate about whether or not Spotify is a threat to Pandora continues, but recent research suggests the latter still has a large lead. Several differences exist between the music streaming platforms’ audiences, including age, loyalty and listening frequency. According to CivicScience polling conducted in April 2015, which focused on active users—those who used one of the streaming platforms “every day,” “a few times a week,” and “a few times a month”—Spotify’s audience skews much younger than Pandora’s. nearly two-thirds of US Spotify users were between the ages of 13…

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…

The remaining 8% was from performance rights and synchronization. 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…

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…

Seraphese, the second track on the EP, first emerged online last year and is as beautiful as it is simplistic, with little more than a piano and an urgent tick of percussion for much of its three and a half minutes, but that is all it needs.

They remained mostly immobile throughout their short set, and the audience mimicked their stoicism. Though, what the audience lacked in movement they made up for in screaming…

    It is something special when a place can bring great emotion and inspiration , enough to create a band new album.

  • Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil Reunite for Historic Tour

    4 Jul 2015 | 10:35 am
    “Legend” is a term that many critics feel is overused in recent times. Two persons who undoubtedly deserve the title are Brazilian music veterans Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso. The length of their careers and breadth of their discography is one that can only be matched by a handful of names. It could have seem apt to name their first Joint tour in more than 20 years “Two Legends” however instead they chose a title that spoke to their continued relationship: “Two Friends.” As they embarked on the tour the numbers were fascinating to ponder: both would be…

    They’ve been sitting on the collaboration for a while now, but this week Toronto singer-songwriter/producer Nick Nikon and Atlanta rapper Key! have finally dropped off a joint track dubbed “Work,” which was the result of the two artists linking together in the studio while in Canada. Per usual with Nikon’s releases, the versatile talent handled the production for the song, as it features a notable switch-up roughly halfway through, then almost coming across as two songs perfectly morphed together. Key!’s signature ad-libs sound off intriguingly behind Nick’s vocals, as the…

Dawkins was known for his monster slam dunks and highflying moves as a NBA star in the 70s and 80s. Dawkins received the nickname Chocalate Thunder after breaking several backboards while dunking the basketball. Dawkins was also extremely active in Philadelphia and across the nation speaking with the youth and serving as a NBA ambassador. Dawkins will be missed. Rest In Peace Darryl Dawkins.

    In the past, sound merely signaled a reward. Now it’s part of the reward. In the past, you knew you’d won on a slot machine if you heard a cascade of sounds, which signalled some sort of payout. That was basically the only function that the sounds had on a slot machine, back then. The slot machines of today are a far cry from the painted metal boxes of the past, however. These days, slots feature high-definition graphics and video, touchscreen controls, and even a few mechanics appropriated from video games. The sound design has also leapt to never-before-seen levels. “Slot…

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…

    Mark RonsonSome may find it hard to believe someone might ask the question above. Trust me, there are quite a few of my readers who will quietly utter those exact words. I must tell you that I hear the question about the identity of a featured artist frequently, even when an extremely popular artist is featured. I understand that I choose to highlight new and/or young artists a great deal, and they have not produced the volume of material or had the opportunity to create the hit song or album. However, I am intrigued by the lack of recognition of someone like Mark Ronson. Why? Because he…

    Andra DayOptimistic! I have heard the word used many times throughout my life. Several years ago the Grammy Award-winning vocal and instrumental ensemble Sounds of Blackness used the word as the title of one of their hit songs. The chorus provides the formula for optimistic thinking, “you can win as long as you keep your head to the sky.” As we approach any endeavor, it is important to be realistic, but it might be more important to be optimistic. No one can achieve unless they first dare to dream. Such thinking is of utmost importance for the aspiring music artist. One major reason for…

    Oriana CurlsAs I listened to a wide variety of music this week, I started to wonder what moves us to appreciate a particular artist or style of song. I am no different than most people because I have my favorites. However, it must be more difficult for an artist to find an accepting audience. Years and years of working and practicing in order to become more a proficient artist is necessary, but then one must make the choice of musical genre. There have been several musicians I knew who changed genres and went on to brilliant careers. Sometimes I have even heard of some that changed the way…

Still, the object is to make people notice the talent, and then give them a reason to like what they are hearing. A term you hear a lot in marketing is – create a buzz. In preparing for this week I wanted to understand that word: buzz. Sure I have heard the buzz of a bee or other insects. I…

  • State Champion- Don't Leave Home Without My Love

    State Champion's punked-up country gunk frequently recalls both the Aristotelian pathos of bands like Souled American and Palace Brothers and the character-driven black humor of indie ironists like Camper Van Beethoven and the Supreme Dicks. Mere homage, however, is not State Champion's line. 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. Indeed, Fantasy Error's depictions of postmasters and county coroners, Dickensian drinkers and "teardrop pushers" are…

Over the course of several months, Ahee waded through more than a hundred song fragments until he reached the bottomless melodies of “I Forgive You” and…

With its dissonance, polytonality and general all-round wonkiness, the track may well have been an example of the genre that host Danny Berman (aka Red Rack'em) had described in his intro as 'wrong house'– as in: 'I'll be playing bruk, funk, grime, hip hop, Detroit techno, wrong…

In other words, this is a very personal debut. Despite it’s genuine intentions however, Free Falling From the Ground Up is certainly not going to please everyone. It has a twee almost open-mic feel to it that will perhaps not satisfy listeners who are looking for something a bit more complex and fresh.

After alienating most hardcore Bullet fans with their previous album Temper Temper, the band knew they had to step it up a gear with their newest effort, which is exactly what they’ve done.

This has not been without good reason. The band’s identities are hidden behind masks and costumes, the band’s doom/neo-classic 70s metal sound harkens back to the heydays of Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep and Blue Oyster Cult.

    This ‘Painted Palms’ article was written by Nick Roseblade, a GIGsoup contributor Painted Palms debut album Forever was a jaunt into ‘psychedelic’ pop. While it was a pleasant listen, overall it was patchy. Either the music let the songs down or the lyrics did. In all fairness it was a good debut as it showed Painted Palms (of The Palms as their fans fall them) were on to something and it showed room for improvement. They’re now gearing up for the release of their second LP Horizon but sadly it’s more of the same, expect this time their influences are glaring and badly executed.

    Was about three weeks ago when we first heard "It's Not Real" from Hazel English, previously she'd won us over with debut track "Never Going Home" - better late never in the case of "It's Not Real" then eh?The formula stays the same on "It's Not Real" but what Hazel English must know is, with the summer in full flow now - not a great one by any stretch of the imagination but then again we are in sunny boro - there really is no point in switching up the shimmering guitars, blissful vocals, and snappy drum hits. There's no details out there on Hazel English's debut EP, but there's going to be…

    Tame Impala have unveiled the official video for the absolutely epic Currents opening track and lead single "Let It Happen".The video for "Let It Happen" was directed by David Wilson and features hallucinations. No, no, lets get off that whole stoner Tame Impala bandwagon crap now, just watch it. The video's protagonist manages to think that his sandwich is trying to have a bit of a chat with him, and ultimately the videos twist is a bit weird too. On Currents, we found ourselves wondering if it was going to be a bit of a flop after hearing over half the album prior to the release,…

    Neon Indian unveils "Slumlord" the second track we're to hear from his upcoming VEGA INTL. Night School album and it sound rather like he's a step back in time, took a dive through "Deadbeat Summer", and come out on the other side with "Slumlord".Previous track "Annie" and now this "Slumlord" are showing that Neon Indian has embraced summer on VEGA INTL. Night School and this may not actually be true, but with only two tracks to go by, it certainly seems that way. There's a nostalgic summer NY feel to this album, and knowing that Palomo moved to New York from Texas a few years back, the…

    Foals have covered Mark Ronson's "Daffodils" ft Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, and the fact they've upped the tempo, funk, and spacey synths is quite remarkable.The cover was recorded as part of Australian radio station Triple J's Like A Version, in which they ask bands to perform cover versions - pretty straight forward really. It is the increased element of funk which strikes the hardest, and paired with Yannis' typical vocals, Foals turn "Daffodils" from something fairly tame to a heavy jazzfest of epic space age proportion. Putting this "Daffodils" cover to the side for a seconds. Foals…

    Toronto's Fake Palms make gruff and rasping noise pop in the best way, sounding very similar and potentially more melodic than The Stooges or more currently Viet Cong - that may be why they're claiming a Brian Wilson influence in there too. I think latest song "YTMATLDPH" will vouch for that."YTMATLDPH" sounds harsh, brutalist and all kinds of dirty, but it is Fake Palms' juxtaposition between dirt and melody that make their music so infectious, and they've got somewhat of a chorus on show too. Fake Palms will release their self-titled debut album through Buzz Records on September and…

    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…

  • 4 Reasons Boy Bands Are More Successful Than Girl Bands

    20 Aug 2015 | 9:10 am
    Over the years boy bands have typically been more successful than girl bands. It’s not that one is more talented than the other. It really has to do more with a few key factors. Throughout the 90s we had some great all boy groups and girl groups, but as we headed into 2010 the number of girl groups fell rapidly. In fact, as of right now I can’t really think of any really popular female groups here in the US. So why do the boys tend to be more successful and have more followers? 1. More Young Female Fans Boy bands have more success  because there are  more young female fans than…

    A live album is a chance for the band to showcase their ability live. Sadly, there haven’t been as many great live albums since the late Nineties’ because it’s become less popular to deviate from the recorded song’s structure, dropping any lengthy improvisations or between-song talk, amongst the crowd or the members themselves. These are the best of those moments, compiled over the course of over thirty years. 10.

    20 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    I find it interesting how easy it is to think a song is about love or something equally ‘bright” when it’s really anything but. Some of the songs we hear are pretty blatant when it comes to what they were about; it’s not too hard to see what Inner Circle’s “Girl, I want to make you sweat…and if you cry out, I’m gonna push it some more” is referring to. Others, however, are not so simple. A lot of the time we don’t listen to the lyrics-we just sing along with the beat. That’s fine. However, some people are distressed when they find out that…

    A one day festival is an odd affair. Packing in all the components that make weekend festivals great and boiling it down to just 11 hours is a tough task. Now in its 8th year, Eastern Electrics’ longevity suggests that it’s doing something right. Eastern Electrics descends from the 80s rave scene, and takes place on the grounds of the historic Hatfield House, just north of London. Hosting stages by an eclectic array of organisations including the London club XOYO, the legendary Ibiza club, Sankeys, and the diverse label, Black Butterz Records, there is something for all the most obscure…

CoreMotion lets you detect and track movements of the iPhone in real time. There are many different approaches to implement apps that can handle iPhone movement. The most frequently used technique is to use a method that detects the iPhone being shake but it is not precise and did not work for us. For a more precise tracking method you need to use CoreMotion.

  • Death From Above 1979 at The Ritz - Raleigh, NC - 8/10/2015

    Death From Above 1979 have been on the road this summer supporting Deftones and Incubus on their co-headlining tour.  After playing a tour stop in Charlotte, they took advantage of an off-night, and played an intimate headlining show at the Ritz in Raleigh, NC.As the Monday night crowd continued to make their way into the venue, local Raleigh band Acid Chaperone [♫♫♫♫] took the stage and proceeded to melt the faces off those in attendance with a series of heavy, sludgey, instrumental psychedelic jams.  While at times it seemed as if they might meander into jam band…

    Steely Dan embarked on their Rockabye Gollie Angel summer tour and brought Elvis Costello with them. Crowds filed into Walnut Creek Amphitheatre while trying to huddle away from early bouts of rain. Elvis Costello and Steely Dan may not be the most logical pairing, but Raleigh was not about to miss these two Rock and Roll Hall of Fame acts on their current tour.Opening the show was Elvis Costello [♫♫♫♫♫] and his backing band The Imposters, comprised of Steve Nieve (keyboards), Pete Thomas (drums), and Davey Faragher (bass). The group hammered out a crowd-friendly set…

    Experiencing a Taking Back Sunday show is much like going to a party: you don't know who is going to be there, you don't know quite what's going to happen, but you know you're going to dance and have a great time. The anticipation was thick in the air Friday night at the Ballpark Village in St. Louis.With Busch Stadium to the right of the stage and the sunset behind the crowd, it was a gorgeous evening for locals Greek Fire [] to open for the band and get the crowd warmed up. Vocalist Phillip Sneed, A.K.A. "Moon" showed much appreciation for both the city and TBS ("We learn our…

    Can you believe it's been 20 years since Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx LP guest starring Ghostface Killah? Well the two members of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan launched an extensive summer tour of the U.S. to help fund The Purple Tape Files, a film project documenting the classic Cuban Linx LP. The duo hit Raleigh's Ritz, and we had to check out the show to see what Dillon Cooper, Ghostface, and Raekwon the chef were cooking up. Brooklyn native, Dillon Cooper, took the stage at The Ritz with a calm confidence and an energy he infected the crowd with before he…
  • Album Review: Joss Stone - Water For Your Soul

    Elise Hines
    3 Aug 2015 | 7:06 am
    Joss Stone has never been afraid to think outside the box. As a blue-eyed soul singer who previously side-stepped peoples expectations by mixing in R&B and hip hop elements  on previous albums and writing solid songs from the heart, it was not a stretch to fathom her writing a hip hop album with a reggae flare.  Water For Your Soul is a significant departure from Joss’ past albums which is not necessarily a bad thing, but may deter some fans. But by recruiting Damian Marley to cowrite songs like “Love Me” and “Wake Up” Joss let us know that she was serious about…

    Studies clearly show you need follow up with a prospect at least 7 times before they’ll buy from you. If you're not following up leads multiple times then you're losing bookings. Thing is, it's a lot of work and takes time. Here I'll show a simple but highly effective way to follow up every lead multiple times without even lifting a finger.

    The folk artist, Weyes Blood, will release a new EP titled Cardamom Times on October 9th via Mexican Summer. In the meantime, the singer has given us taste of “Cardamom.” Diverging from the studio recording of her previous album The Innocents, Natalie Mering, the haunting voice behind Weyes Blood, recorded the EP on tape in her home studio on Rockaway Beach, according to The Fader. As a result, her new single is hauntingly personal. Her athletic alto sounds more up-close than it has before, cozying up to the mic like it’s another person’s ear as she remembers a departed lover…

    25 Aug 2015 | 3:49 pm
    Touring is something that can be a very important way to get people interested in your music, and I have a lot of respect for musicians that go and play out. There is nothing that can describe the feeling of playing in front of an audience that is digging what you are doing, and it is something that every musician should do at some point or another. At one point in my life that is all I wanted to do and I think it's very important that musicians get that instinct when creating a new track to think about how a crowd will react to it.I think the thing that unites every musician is the goal of…

    Let me tell you something, writing about this topic makes me nervous. I don't really even know why but there is kind of weird fear about it. Maybe it's the fear that I will piss someone off but I don't really know.Personally, as a musician, I believe that music has value. It takes time and money to create good music and the idea that it should be free is a pretty silly debate. Of course it shouldn't be free, someone needs to pay for it BUT I don't think that someone is always the music fan.It pisses me off when I see the fans getting the most shit about piracy and free music, and it…

Record sales are down, labels are losing money, and it's clear the system did not kept up with technology. Now we are left with two options.The first option is to look at what is going on right now, cry about it, and wish the internet had never been born. The second option is to embrace it, work with it, and create a better system.Personally I am in favor of the second option. There are already so many opportunities that have emerged in the new…
  • Only 1 Album Released in 2015 has Gone Platinum

    Michael Musco
    17 Aug 2015 | 6:15 am
    In the United States record sales determine whether an album gets Gold, Platinum, or Diamond. An album with sales of 500,000+ is Gold, 1,000,000+ is Platinum, and 10,000,000+ is Diamond. So far, only one album released in 2015 has reached Platinum status.So congratulations to Drake for the If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late album going Platinum. In 2014 there were only two released albums that went Platinum, and they were Taylor Swifts 1989 album, and the Frozen Soundtrack. There were other albums that achieved platinum status in 2014 but they just weren't released that same…

Personally, I feel that decision was complete bullshit and I hope they continue to appeal that decision until it gets overturned. The reason being is that I listened to both the tracks and to my ears it sounded a whole lot more of inspired by Marvin Gaye then ripped off from Marvin Gaye. Inspiration is a HUGE part of music creation. The musicians of the past lay down the foundation which inspires the younger musicians of today.To me, the Blurred Lines decision opens a…

    Grace Lam
    24 Aug 2015 | 8:48 pm
    I’ve become intrigued about leaving the place called home. At what point does the homesickness kick in? My piano student, Kayla, has been with me for years. I’ve never been a big-party kind of girl but I wanted to see my friends and everyone that mattered before I left. “I’ll plan your going away party,” my sister said. “Really?” I said. “I want it by the beach.” Thirty-odd people came, and everything I thought mattered did not matter. The weather, for example– we packed tarps and considered moving the party to Sunday because of the…
  • Shortcut to reinventing yourself

    Grace Lam
    11 Aug 2015 | 8:50 pm
    I was about to become homeless in Hong Kong, during my first visit to Asia. My housing agreement didn’t pan out. But then I lost my passport returning from Seattle (where I saw dead people), and turned my backpack inside out for the next few days. If I put the passport by the food in my bag, I might’ve noticed it slipping out– but I couldn’t decide which sugary cereal to get at the rest stop before the bus driver marched us back, so I had nothing to put the passport beside anyways, and remained starved and half asleep on the way home. This morning, my friend David told me to…
  • The fastest way to start a music event

    Grace Lam
    6 Aug 2015 | 9:37 pm
    To see people come together for a vision you’ve pieced together in your head is one of the best presents you can give yourself. Here are some of the highlights to producing my latest event– I had two months to pull this off, in the middle of summer. I didn’t cough blood this time. 1. Something is missing. I used to teach piano in public schools. many musicians were talented and passionate, but they tended to practice in their rooms, alone for hours, so I wanted to create a stage for the everyday musician to share their music with an audience. At the highest level, I needed…
  • Please Don’t Start

    11 Jun 2015 | 10:02 am
    Please don’t tell me I’m strong. I can’t believe it when dishes are cluttering up the sink, clothes are strewn around my room, 30 urgent emails go unanswered, and I’m not talking to one of my best friends. I can’t help dwelling on that one negative comment even when there are a hundred positive ones on my blog. At a coffee shop, I am scrolling through Facebook for someone to hire. I need help. Two weeks before launching my event, someone begged me to stop. It was poison for a girl who was coughing up blood. I’ve thought about slipping to spaces where music is…
  • 6 Summer Jazz Piano Songs

    Grace Lam
    3 May 2015 | 10:02 am
    “Why are you wearing sandals?” “I’m dressing for what I want the weather to be,” I say. “Not what it is.” Megs and I inch our umbrellas closer to cross the street. I’ve collected some lazy summer songs, inspired by a cabaret-style performance I recently attended. These are great for jamming with a friend (or sister, in my case) as there’s piano and vocal, and most are easy to learn. Oh, I’ve been ready for summer, for weeks.   Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay – Otis Redding Sheet Music An easygoing, summer-type…

    If Creamfields isn’t in your future but you’re in London and want to catch some proper house music, never fear. Don’t get us wrong, there are plenty of reasons to hit the festival itself, but Cream has made sure to supply the surrounding area with other options as well. On the last day of the festival, Duke Dumont will play London’s KOKO nightclub alongside special guests which will be announced leading up to his performance. As much as house has returned to the mainstream spotlight over the past couple of years, Dumont was one of the genre’s champions…

    This has been quite a summer for Matisse & Sadko. The Russian progressive house duo didn’t have to ride on breakout superstar Martin Garrix’s coattails with collaborations like “Dragon” and “Break Through the Silence” for long before they were flying high on their own merit with the clubby departure that was “Memories.” This go-around, they’ve teamed up with the all but unknown Vigel on “Tengu,” and it’s the best track that they’ve put out to date.

    It’s hard to imagine a collaboration between Skrillex and Jauz resulting in anything short of legendary. The latter artist already took the liberty of premiering this soul-shaking banger live at Summer Set Music and Camping Festival a little over a week ago, and since then we’ve eagerly anticipated the release of a high-quality version. Our excitement wasn’t for naught – “Squad Out,” featuring rapper Fatman Scoop, utilizes the kind of LFO loop bass wobbles that artists like Excision got us hooked on back before dubstep was a dirty word.

  • Check Out Kygo’s Trop House Spin On A-Ha’s Take On Me

    John Cameron
    26 Aug 2015 | 11:51 am
    Nobody holds down the market for tropical house remixes of classic songs quite like Kygo. The Norwegian DJ/producer’s particular brand of feel-good summer music has lent itself quite well to the work of artists like Marvin Gaye and Blackstreet, and his remix of A-Ha’s ’80s hit “Take On Me” further proves the versatility of his style. Kygo’s trademark woodwind and xylophone-inspired synths set the relaxed tone for the remix, which borrows little more than the vocal top line of the original. While it in no way betrays his usual style, Kygo’s…

    The Big Dog
    22 Aug 2015 | 2:31 am
    We’ve covered lyrics over the last 2 posts (and previously I gave a few brief top tips for song writing). Now it’s time to move onto arrangement proper. Melody I know it’s not part of arrangement, but it’s too important to ignore. Many songwriters take a lyric and a chord sequence or a riff and just try to hammer the 2 together. This can work and may give you a satisfactory song. But too often it results in a song where the melody is a little boring and limited and is only held up by the chords, lyric and arrangement. If you want a better melody, write it before you…
  • Song Writing – Lyrics part 2

    15 Aug 2015 | 2:48 am
    Last time we looked at basic lyric structure. Today I’m going to get more into the actual words themselves. Make Your Opening Line Attention Grabbing It has been said many times (a few of them by me on this blog) that you have SECONDS to grab a listener. If you don’t grab them in those first 5-7 seconds, they will click onto something else. Your first line needs to get their attention; shock them or make them curious. Paint A Picture “Slumped down in a chair, tears streaming down his face” is a lot more effective than, “he was upset”. Don’t talk about people’s feelings; show…

Some people are very precious about their songs and have major objections to any kind of “rules”. None of what I’m saying here is hard and fast and you will find many exceptions to every bit of advice here. Sometimes because of not knowing better but sometimes because of the artistry of the writer allows them to bend the “rules” to good effect. How to write also depends on what you want to do with the song. If you are writing for yourself or your band…
  • Getting More Media Coverage and Better Gigs

    The Big Dog
    1 Aug 2015 | 2:35 am
    Just a short one today but a goodie nevertheless. Once you get a show, ask the promoter to share their media list with you so that you can promote the gig. Most promoters will be happy to share as it’s in their interest for you to get the gig publicity but if they’re resistant, don’t push. Once you have a media list make sure it’s up to date and add any others that you already know of. Keep separate national media and local lists by region. People in New York really don’t care about your gig in LA. Be a team player. If they want promotional materials (to send to…

  • ¿Por qué es tan importante el vídeo en la música?

    LaCarne Magazine
    25 Aug 2015 | 4:00 am
    por LaCarne Magazine El público y las audiencias musicales adoran el vídeo. Es un hecho.

  • Travis $cott – A Portrait of Houston [Feature]

    Antonio Infantino
    27 Aug 2015 | 10:43 am
    Twenty-four years ago, Geto Boys typified a sound that was to come, releasing Mind Playing Tricks On Me and creating an instant Houston HipHop classicSeparating itself distinctively from other hip hop in the early 90s, the song had lazy, harmonic guitar samples. The slow, blues influence contrasted the often angry, protesting up-tempo nature of a lot of hip hop at the time, and it gave birth to the Houston rap scene. Producer-legend and Houston native DJ Screw soon followed Geto Boys, creating an almost exaggerated version of what had preceded him, playing records at nearly half-speed and…
  • Real Life Charm – No Howling (Video)

    26 Aug 2015 | 6:27 am
    It’s different. It’s out there. It’s British. With comparisons made to Gorillaz, Caribou and Alt-J just months into their career, their sophisticated, electronic-tinged alt-pop has seen them playlisted on BBC 6 Music and BBC R1 (Huw Stephens). Their second release ‘No Howling’ cements their status as one of the most and exciting debut acts for 2015, a new artistic collective spanning the breadth of the UK. The 8 piece art collective delivers the retro visuals ‘No Howling below. The post Real Life Charm – No Howling (Video) appeared first on…
  • The King’s Parade – Silhouette

    26 Aug 2015 | 6:10 am
    Every so often we spotlight a band that grabs our attention. This track dropped into the inbox and after 10 seconds of listening I was instantly gripped by the tone, vibe and felt the real potential they have. As the second release from the UK four piece band and as a follow up to their previous track ‘Bunched Up Letters (which has a dope video by the way – check that out here) the boys have delivered again. The soulful tones from TKP’s lead singer and the bluesy vibes as backing set up a serious ‘kick back and chill’ vibe. It’s great to hear a UK group…

The boys have teamed up with special guest Locks Laser from indie band The Thirst to deliver a soulful chill out hip-hop track hailing as this week’s ‘Track of the Week’ at BBC1Xtra. We spoke to the guys about what they like to do when they aren’t making music, the origins behind their name and sound as well as plans for the future and details about their upcoming project.

  • About To Blow Meets: Leftwing & Kody

    26 Aug 2015 | 3:57 am
    Since their formation in 2013, the London-based duo of Leftwing & Kody have evolved into a fast-rising force that’s seen them implement the type of quality and work rate that, in turn, has elevated them to the forefront of the electronic music scene in that time. With a musical output that’s as exciting as it is ambitious, L&K initially emerged with a playful soundscape that blended House with Garage that instantly had dancefloors grooving up and down the country. Yet in what is a heavily growing and competitive market where many would elect to focus on their own artistic vision,…

  • James Horner - a tribute

    22 Jun 2015 | 11:47 pm
    Today was a morning like any other - except that I didn't sleep last night and woke up at 4am. Not one to lay in bed, awake and unproductive, I got in some early work on a music project. 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 »

  • Deep Purple

    17 Aug 2015 | 8:51 am
    What is it with these classic rock bands these days? Deep Purple is a band with very few popular songs, and not a band that should be playing at 17,000 capacity amphitheaters more than forty years into their career. Don’t get me wrong, Machine Head is an amazing album, but other than that I’m not sure what Deep Purple is good for. Let’s start with the venue: the show was at the Molson Amphitheater (which as I mentioned before is HUGE), a venue that was around four times too big for this show. I’d say there were only around 4,000 people there and throughout the show…
  • Def Leppard with Styx

    12 Aug 2015 | 4:52 am
    Oldies who should retire Def Leppard sucked. I wasn’t expecting the same show quality as I would’ve from other classic rock bands that are more established like Aerosmith or even Axl Rose’s newer version of Guns ‘n’ Roses, but I expected way more than what I got, having paid $80 for two tickets up in the back. For the entire show, Joe Elliot (the lead singer) seemed so uninterested in what he was doing that he just stood there and sang the songs as opposed to trying to entertain the crowd while doing so. I also got bored of the show after the band played about…
  • Foo Fighters

    8 Jul 2015 | 9:43 pm
    King Grohl atop his throne It’s unlike me to say that a show is perfect because I like to believe that there is no such thing as a perfect show. 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. A tank couldn’t stop this guy so it’s no…
  • U2 Innocence and Experience Tour

    7 Jul 2015 | 12:09 pm
    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.
  • Rush

    18 Jun 2015 | 10:07 am
    Rush is a band that has always defied convention. Despite critical snubs from the likes of Rolling Stone (and various other media outlets) and never having a number one hit, Rush is the highest-selling band to ever emerge from Canada with more than forty million albums sold and has a ginormous cult fan base that’s larger and more loyal than any other I’ve ever seen. 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…

  • Develop Your Valuable Instrument – How to Find Your Vocal Range

    24 Aug 2015 | 1:01 am
    A vocal range can simply be understood as the span between the lowest and the highest notes. This leads to variation of pitches and classification of different types of singing voice. Classification of singing voice is very essential in the opera and musical world since the tone, pitches, and variation of notes from a soprano (highest female voice) or a tenor (highest male voice) may convey commanding tones, pitches and dramatic expressions in their roles. Whether a singer belongs to a mezzo soprano, baritone or other classification is not really important in the popular music world, but…

    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…
  • Scream and Whisper at These Ribbon Microphones

    18 May 2015 | 6:01 pm
    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…
  • How To Sing From Your Diaphragm? Does it Make Sense or Is It Possible?

    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…

    16 Aug 2015 | 8:45 am
         Pop punk is exactly what it says it is, a hybrid of the attitude of 70's punk (sometimes it's actual sound as well), and pop. The most popular groups of this genre are Green Day and Blink-182, but there are many to choose from.     The British group "A" recorded together from 1996 to 2005 and had some success in their home country as well as  Germany, but little elsewhere. Their most popular album was "Hi-Fi Serious" in 2002 with it's top 10 hit UK hit, "Nothing"    They were made up of twin brothers Jason (vocals) and Adam Perry…

Having said that, from a historical aspect, one cannot deny the way in which popular tastes were shaped and formed MTV and the music video.      One of the reasons for this blog is to tune many of you in to the sounds and personalities that fell between the cracks in the professional music biz and there are many variables which define success.

  • George McCurn--I'm Just a Country Boy (1963)

    16 Jul 2015 | 4:39 pm
    Gospel music has always informed popular music.  Country, Rock and Roll, R&B and Soul all have been influenced at some level by Gospel. It's not surprising then that most of the singers of those genres came out of the church. Some, like Johnny Cash and Elvis were influenced by the songs of the church, and at least in Presley's case, it's stage manner as well. Others like Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin were actually singing gospel music before switching to more secular material. George "Ooppee" McCurn spent the 1950's as a member of two of gospel's greatest groups;…

         Those of you who will be following along with me will soon pick up on a few things about this blog. First of all, for me to be inspired to write, I need some sort of structure.      I have a radio show heard on six stations across the country called "The Rock and Roll Omnibus" which covers a wide range of music from a broad time frame. In preparation for the show I listen to a LOT of music, and being the kind of person that I am, began listening to music by the label instead of the artists. This led me to A&M Records. As I began with the…

It provides the perfect amount of reverb to someone who is wanting to fatten the sound of an imperfect instrument(s) and it's bigger than a bathroom shower.      Not many can say however that their efforts would soon lead to a record label that would be sold for 500 million dollars.      It started in a garage with someone attempting to mimic the emotions of a…

    For most people, setting up a home recording studio sounds like a monumental task. Indeed, it seems like it’s difficult to gather everything that you will need for it. After all, many imagine a studio as having a lot of electronics and cables. However, in reality, building a home recording studio isn’t as hard as you think it is. The trick is to get started with only the most important equipment (which aren’t a lot actually). And so, I am sharing here a home recording studio equipment list that only has the 6 most essential items. The 6 Most Essential Studio Equipment Click…

    Dave Navarro, Mike Shinoda and Justin Timberlake? Yup, it’s another roundup of seemingly random throwback music. Addicted to Nostalgia Just recently, Jane’s Addiction performed their full 1988 album “Nothing’s Shocking” at Showbox SoDo in Seattle. It was a very rare throwback performance, and at an unusually intimate venue nonetheless. The band is known for their hedonistic live spectacles — they had two scantily clad dancers and Dave Navarro performed shirtless. Jane’s Addiction also performed songs for later era fans, like “Been Caught…

    Recently, I decided that I’ll finally start jogging. I’ve been spending too much time in front of my computer, and I felt that I really needed some exercise. My shoes were kind of old though, so I browsed online for a new pair and stumbled upon this video: Obviously, I wasn’t looking for football shoes, but the ad’s message made me check it out. More so, it made me realize how hating is “normal” now, specially in the music industry. Inspired by the ad, I took a look at some of music’s own successful, yet much hated personalities.

  • Playing Bass Solo?

    3 Aug 2015 | 10:51 am
    In 1965 British rock group, The Who released a song called My Generation. Apart from its claim to fame as a rock anthem it also contains the most instantly recognizable bass guitar solo in rock and roll. This iconic solo by John Entwistle is typical of the bass solo modeled on similar solo breaks played on double bass and bass guitar in jazz music. This type of bass guitar solo is in the form of a question and answer sequence often found in blues music. The Who’s solo also imitates jazz bass solos in that it is played without other instruments behind it. In jazz such solos are played…
  • Brief History of Bass Guitar

    1 Aug 2015 | 10:28 am
    Ask most people who created the modern electric bass guitar and they will tell you it was Leo Fender. However, there were at least five other prototypes resembling the now well-known design of the modern bass, each created well before Fender introduced the world to the Precision bass in 1951. The modern bass is a direct descendant of the double bass, which dates back to the 17th century. However, it was not until the early twentieth century that the design of the bass was changed to be more practical. In the 1920’s, Lloyd Loar, working for Gibson, designed the first ‘electric…

  • Basic Guitar Chord

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:59 am
    The basic guitar chords you’ll learn on this post form the foundation of today’s guitar playing. I call them beginner guitar chords, but they are used everyday by beginners as well as advanced players and in all styles of music. Beginners should practice these chords until they have memorized them and are able to switch between them fluidly. Open chords (some call them folk chords) are usually the first thing a beginning guitar player learns.  This doesn’t mean that these beginner guitar chords are very easy: learning to get those left hand fingers work together and…
