    Do you ever wonder how you’re faring in the realm of Online Reach and Influence? Maybe you need to stop and take a snapshot of where you stand. I call it your Internet Influence Index (or 3i for short). A 3i is a listing of your current number of friends, followers and other statistics that indicate how well you’re connecting with customers and fans online. It’s a quick measurement of your Internet presence. I refer to it as a snapshot because, if you’re proactive at all online, the numbers will be in constant flux – hopefully in an upward direction. Some day I…

    The first single from Today Is The Day's tenth LP, Animal Mother, has been released through a disturbing new video for the ninth track, 'Masada,' as the band begins to divulge the newest developments in their massive upcoming tour schedule. Produced by visual architect David Hall of Handshake Inc., the disturbing accompaniment for 'Masada' delivers the track in a vibrant, high-contrast collage of footage, combining imagery born of nature's itinerary and humanity's inherently sadistic and perverse ways.

    Over the years I have, on many occasions, been very critical of SiriusXM’s customer service.  There were even points in time where I would have characterized it as deplorable. In my opinion, a successful company is one that views its customers as an asset, handles them with care, and bends over backwards to ensure that the consumer experience is as good as it can be.  SiriusXM has not always fared well in these departments.  That being said, my two most recent interactions with SiriusXM’s customer service were a very pleasant surprise.

The news being announced today was timed very well.  the company had dipped below $3.60 and while I would not have anticipated to dip much further, an announcement such as this should be enough to get the interest of the street and get investors…

    Hailing from Los Angeles, Shiva is the latest producer to drop an effort via the Unspeakable, an all-female record label helmed by fellow LA beatmaker Dot. Serving as the title track to her recent effort, "Dark Moon" is a moody production which coyly exists along the spacier ends of the bass-music spectrum. Led by sharp, electro-indebted rhythms, the track gently sways as it unrolls thick pads, laid-back synth bass, and miniature guitar licks throughout its three-plus-minute run. Released earlier this week, Shiva's full Dark Moon EP can be streamed after the jump. read more

  • TKFX Gives You Crazy-Easy iPad, Android Control of Traktor Effects, KAOSS-Style

    19 Sep 2014 | 7:55 am
    For digital DJs, the computer often still trumps the iPad. You get (much) more storage, more flexible use of hardware, more features. But wouldn’t it be nice to use a tablet for X/Y control of effects? TKFX does that, and nothing else – but it does it damned well. It works on Android and iOS alike, and it’s dead-simple – and powerful. Traktor’s effects are one of the best features of the platform; this finally gives you intuitive control over them.

    Max 7 is the newest version of Cycling ’74 visual development to… um… erm… Well, actually, it’s really hard to explain what tools like Max, Pd, Reaktor, Plogue Bidule, and the like can do. Sure, they’re nerdy environments for making stuff. But because they’re open ended – because what they do is really up to you – just calling them a “development tool” doesn’t really say a lot. So, in a cute new video, Cycling ’74 shows off Max 7. It’s really stuff you could do with previous tools, showing visual and sonic…

    18 Sep 2014 | 5:53 am
    That’s not a bug; it’s a feature. Wayward insects become the source of eerie, ambient music in a new work by British-born, Baix Penedes (Spain)-based artist Dickon Stone. Each insect lured by the glow of his light-up sculpture in turn triggers musical elements. Over the course of five years, he’s shaped that process into a strangely-lovely, otherworldly soundscape and formed a two-track EP, which you can preview here. (Five years, huh? Well, that’s proof that even with swarms of insects helping you shape the music, you can wind up obsessing over finishing. But the…

    Spin off those spinning CDJs. Pioneer DJ is now a separate company, sold to an equity firm in New York at the price of roughly US$551 Million. Pioneer Corp in its past form was diversified in the old-fashioned model of Japanese brands. So, yes, it made the mixer and the CD player in your discotheque … but also your car stereo, and iPod docks, and earbuds, and a system for monitoring your cycling activities while you pedal bicycles, and it put its name on all of them. (This is the same country where the Yamaha brand is on both jetskis and grand pianos, after all.) Now, that changes.

Previously, modules came from littleBits; the popular Synth Kit collaboration with KORG being a significant exception. littleBits has certainly offered a lot of options, including the recent Cloud Kit for adding Internet connectivity. But now, it’s opening up hardware development to anyone with an idea. While littleBits calls itself “open source hardware” – founder Ayah Bdeir even co-founding the Open Hardware Summit — that…

    Add Craaave to the list of apps created to “address the lengthy, messy process of sharing music with friends”. The list is long, and getting longer, but I think Craaave (a “small bootstrapped operation”) excels where other apps do not. Many music-sharing mobile apps make the process even more confusing by adding video, photo, and other bells and whistles. Craaave stays true to its mission, it’s a beautifully designed music messaging iOS app that allows users to send songs to their contacts. The app is free in the app store.

The Decline Source: Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) The above graph shows that accounting for inflation, income from recorded music has declined approximately 65% from its high point in 1999.  Since the major labels (Sony, Warner and Universal and their wholly owned affiliates such as Atlantic, Capitol, Def Jam, Interscope, Motown, Epic and Columbia) distribute 85% of recorded music, they’ve been…

  • Music Kits #1: DIY guitar effect pedal kits

    30 Nov 2010 | 3:18 pm
    Over the last couple of years, I’ve spent a few evenings building DIY guitar effects. It's fun to build things that you can use. If you want to get started, one of the hardest things is buying components. Try to buy a 10Ω resistor from Farnell, and you’re faced with a choice of 345 items. So, starting out buying a kit is a good idea. At least you’ll know the parts are right, even if when your soldering isn’t. However, not many people sell kits. Despite the potential markup on a handful of bulk components, the customer service is - presumably - a nightmare. Here are 23 companies who…

This increase in wattage means that their signal now has a reach of 15-20 km (10-12 mi) radius. The station manager, Vernon Smith, said that along with the power increase the station will also be working on implementing higher quality programming. One of the things that makes college radio so great is that no two stations are the same. Every station has their own format, different things they focus…

While the first show was seated with less bodies on the evening when the two-week heatwave in Los Angeles finally broke, the second evening was not so cool. Although outside it still was providing temperature relief, inside the Masonic Lodge the show was standing-only and the security guards needed to keep people on the edges of the room pressed together in order to allow Karen and her team to walk to and from the stage.

    Update Friday 9/19: More details are starting to emerge regarding the new digital music format that U2 is working on with Apple. The project which Bono says would  assure that songwriters and artists get paid for creating music is about 18 months away from launch.  "I think it’s going to get very exciting for the music business," Bono tells Time, "[it's] an audiovisual interactive format for music that can’t be pirated and will bring back album artwork in the most powerful way, where you can play with the lyrics and get behind the songs when you’re sitting on the subway with your…

  • On the Town and the long march for civil rights in performance

    Raquel Fernandes
    11 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    As we celebrate the golden anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a significant aspect of the struggle for racial equality often gets ignored: racial activism in performance. Actors, singers, and dancers mobilized over the decades, pushing back against racial restrictions that shifted over time, and On the Town of 1944 marked an auspicious but little-recognized moment in that history. On the Town opened on Broadway in December of 1944 towards the end of World War II, and marked the debut of a dazzling group of creative artists: the composer Leonard Bernstein, the lyricists Betty Comden…
  • United Airlines and Rhapsody in Blue

    Raquel Fernandes
    28 Aug 2014 | 3:30 am
    As anyone who has flown United in the past quarter-century knows, the company has a long-standing history with George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. The piece appears in its television advertisements, its airport terminals, and even its pre-flight announcements. However, the history of United’s use of the piece is far from straight forward. This brand new safety video offers a compelling case in point: Like recent videos by Air New Zealand and Delta Airlines, United’s safety briefing is designed to keep our attention as it reiterates the standard safety announcements that we know all too…

    This month marks the 50th anniversary of Disney’s beloved film Mary Poppins, starring the legendary Julie Andrews. Although Andrews was only twenty-nine at the time of the film’s release, she had already established herself as a formidable star with numerous credits to her name and performances opposite Richard Burton, Rex Harrison, and other leading actors of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Mary Poppins would earn Andrews an Academy Award for Best Actress and serve as a milestone in a career that continues today. Herewith are some of our favorite songs from Andrew’s illustrious career.

    Meet the woman behind Grove Music Online, Anna-Lise Santella. We snagged a bit of Anna-Lise’s time to sit down with her and find out more about her own musical passions and research. Do you play any musical instruments? Which ones? My main instrument is violin, which I’ve played since I was eight. I play both classical and Irish fiddle and am currently trying to learn bluegrass. In a previous life I played a lot of pit band for musical theater. I’ve also worked as a singer and choral conductor. These days, though, you’re more likely to find a mandolin or guitar in my hands. Do…

Salamone Rossi as a Jew among Jews What do we know of Salamone Rossi’s family? His father was named Bonaiuto Azaria de’ Rossi (d. 1578): he composed Me’or einayim (Light of the Eyes).

    El Pressentiment son hojas de agitación, el arma con la que Espai en Blanc quiere intervenir en el actual combate del pensamiento. En este combate se decide quién y cómo construye la realidad. Hoy la realidad se descompone y se hace imprevisible pero a la vez se rehace sobre y contra nosotros. Nadie sabe qué pasará. Los discursos políticos son intercambiables. Sólo los presentimientos tienen fuerza y permiten tomar una posición. Buscamos presentimientos valientes, insospechados, veraces… liberadores. El Pressentiment también eres tú: descárgalo, imprímelo, distribúyelo,…

    This superb, wide-ranging volume, edited by Nona Willis Aronowitz and published by University of Minnesota Press, gives me the chance to quote again from Willis's 1969 essay on Woodstock, one of the sharpest pieces the New Yorker has ever published: "What cultural revolutionaries do not seem to grasp is that, far from being a grass-roots art form that has been taken over by businessmen, rock itself comes from the commercial exploitation of blues. It is bourgeois at its core, a mass-produced commodity, dependent on advanced technology and therefore on the money controlled by those in…

The more popular a journalist, reviewer, blogger or podcaster is, the more bombarded they are with pitches from all directions. It can seem like everyone is looking for free exposure, so these good people become numb to the onslaught of self-promoters wanting something from them. One way to stand out is to put yourself in their shoes. Compliment them. Try to help make their jobs easier. Become a resource instead of yet another person…

    Do you ever wonder how you’re faring in the realm of Online Reach and Influence? Maybe you need to stop and take a snapshot of where you stand. I call it your Internet Influence Index (or 3i for short). A 3i is a listing of your current number of friends, followers and other statistics that indicate how well you’re connecting with customers and fans online. It’s a quick measurement of your Internet presence. I refer to it as a snapshot because, if you’re proactive at all online, the numbers will be in constant flux – hopefully in an upward direction.

They're also on the road playing a few shows to celebrate the milestone and as if that wasn't enough, frontman and creative mastermind Jeff Tweedy will release his solo debut under the banner of Tweedy on September 23rd. Here's a sampling from the Tweedy album, a tune called…
  • Interview: Howard Jones On Retro Futura + Continuing To ‘Engage’ With His Audience

    Matt Wardlaw
    31 Aug 2014 | 1:22 pm
    For fans of ‘80s pop music, the current Retro Futura tour is a dream bill, featuring a lineup of Katrina (from Katrina and the Waves), China Crisis, Midge Ure of Ultravox fame, Howard Jones and Thompson Twins frontman Tom Bailey. I had the chance to see the tour when it came through Cleveland last week (at the Performance Arts Center at the Masonic Auditorium) and it’s probably the best genre package tour I’ve ever seen. It was a thrill to see Howard Jones touring with a level of production that you usually only get to see if you’re seeing one of his shows in the U.K. Beyond that,…
  • Matthew Sweet On The Legacy Of “Girlfriend” + His Upcoming New Album

    Matt Wardlaw
    15 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    For the past few years, Matthew Sweet has been celebrating his classic ‘90s release Girlfriend with a series of full album performances. The shows which initially came about to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album’s release proved that Girlfriend remains one of the more well-crafted releases from the decade. It holds up well, which as you probably know, is not something that always is the case when you’re listening back to albums past. It’s fun to look back, but now Sweet is beginning to take steps towards writing and recording his next album which is slated to be released in…

    5 Sep 2014 | 8:50 am
    The White Whale is up and running. It’s sold out and the waiting list has been closed. Some people are resorting to turning up on the night just in case there are audience member no-shows (I’m not suggesting this as a viable course of action, but I understand that needs must etc.). If you have a ticket and are yet to see the play, I heartily recommend waiting ’til you have before you check out these images: there are photos from behind the scenes taken by James Phillips here; and very spoilery pics from the dress rehearsal here.

Tickets are free but there aren’t many left… call The Carriageworks Theatre on  0113 2243801 for the last few remaining.  In my last two posts I talked about priming the subconscious to do the heavy lifting when it comes to idea generation, the need to capture ideas when they bubble up and the most efficient and effective way to do this; and using GoodNotes and Adonit Mini stylus on the iPad to mark up scripts.

    18 Sep 2014 | 7:19 am
    To get the work, we need to say yes, and to keep the work, we need to produce. But to produce, from what church music has taught me, we need to write faster, rewrite when necessary, and write for the people who actually want new music. If we do, our music will keep getting performed and performed well.

    Looks like Voltage may obtain subscriber info in Canada from Teksavvy, but not without court oversight and privacy protections for people accused of infringement. Still, this was just a motion. The demand letters may roll out soon, but this litigation might prove to be unprofitable, given the tone and language of the judgement. This could play out in many different ways. I’ve long suspected that this case is merely a demo tape for a sweep of a much larger number of suspected infringing IP addresses assigned to the major ISPs.

She drops a couple of lines of verse from “Total Praise” in the vamp, then concludes, “When I thought was going to lose my mind / God, you stepped in the nick of time.” The song is good and shows that Missy is exploring new territory for her singles, but I much prefer Missy’s traditional side.

With bands such as R.E.M., Pylon, and the B-52s gaining national attention, artists flocked to the city hoping to get noticed. I happened to be in college during that time, and I was like a kid in a candy store. Every Friday night you could find some up-and-coming band that was "the next R.E.M." It was a place of excitement and innovation. Michael Stipe sightings were frequent. It was a wonderful place to be. Now, R.E.M. have broken up, the B-52s are…

    One of the worst things a blogger can do is not post anything for days or months. Then after those months have passed, you see the obligatory "Sorry it's been so long since my last post! Things sure have sped by! I promise to do better!" And then...nothing.It becomes as empty and desolate as real estate in Detroit. This hiatus was not due to the fact that I was too busy, or forgot. This blog entered my head every day. But I had briefly lost the will to write. I have been working on a novel for almost 10 years. It was historical fictional / alternate history involving a real rock n roll band.
  • 30 Worst Taylor Swift Lyrics

    Peter Lee
    28 Apr 2014 | 7:54 am
    Finding bad lyrics to Taylor Swift songs is like shooting fish in a barrel - it's easy, you end up with way too much to take home and it's a messy job. During my recent textual analysis of Swift's lyrics, I found a plethora of bad lines - some that made me laugh out loud, and some that made me cringe. She doesn't use a lot of different words, nor does she use various themes. In fact, a few appear over and over: She's always standing in the rain. People are always throwing rocks at her windows. She drives around with boys in the middle of the night, or argues with them in the middle of the…

We loved their food store/catering space, Boxy Fine Foods, in Ghent, but unfortunately it closed earlier this year. While we do not know the reason why it closed, we bet it wasn’t because of the interior design. With the help of Frederich Hooft of Ghent, the Boxy brothers created an elegant, white, open space to display and sell gourmet foods. The elaborate moldings on the ceilings, the…

    Good coffee was not on an average consumer’s radar in 1971, when the story of the brand now known as Starbucks began. This was the case especially in North America where coffee culture was nonexistent.   That all started to change when Howard Schultz bought Starbucks in 1987 and started its expansion outside Seattle with the first outside the U.S. store opening that same year in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.   Today, Starbucks is the largest coffeehouse company in the world with about 23,500 stores in 65 countries.

  • Start Paying Attention To The Design of The Office

    31 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm
    In our working lives, we are in many ways still stuck in the age of the Industrial Revolution. When the masses worked in factories, the office support personnel worked the same hours, or at least “regular working hours” and commuted daily to central offices. Perhaps there was a sense that all workers needed to be under the watchful eye of the Master and therefore they needed to gather in one place to be supervised, like kids in school? Are we not past that phase? We are challenging every single person to take responsibility for his or her own working environment. Let’s stop…

"A lot of folks think Im just the guy, Im the fucking beach bum," says Owen, 33, seated in a booth at Rotiers restaurant, a Nashville burger-and-shake joint dating back to the Forties. Dressed in a stained short-sleeve work shirt and shorts, he certainly looks the epitome of the "right on, dude" Moondoggie.

  • Trailer: Tim Burton's 'Big Eyes'

    19 Sep 2014 | 11:27 am
    Tim Burton is a very good director in need of a good movie. His last few have either been critical disappointments (Dark Shadows) or box office fizzles (Frankenweenie). So it's good to see a very promising looking trailer for Big Eyes, an Amy Adams vehicle about the true story of Margaret Keane, a famed artist whose husband stole the credit for all her work. It doesn't look much like a Tim Burton movie (although Keane's famed subject—children with cartoonishly large eyes—certainly sounds up his alley) but it looks terrific. And, wouldn't you know, there's neither hide nor hair of Johnny…

  • Fixed mindset vs Growth mindset

    Derek Sivers
    20 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    One of the most important concepts I’ve learned is the difference between the “fixed” mindset and the “growth” mindset. People in a fixed mindset believe everyone is great or is flawed - that this is a fixed status, because it’s just who you are. People in a growth mindset believe anyone can be great or can be flawed - that this is an ever-changing status, because it’s entirely due to your actions. This sounds simple, but it’s surprisingly deep. The fixed mindset is the most common and the most harmful, so it’s worth understanding and considering how it’s affecting you.

It knocked me on my ass, hard. I’ve never felt so wrong and lost. It hurts, bad. I vulnerably called on friends for help. Amber reminded me to pull my head out of today, and think long-term again. Jeff told me to get my swagger back and hook up with every hottie in town, just relishing the moment. Ariel said I should really accept and feel this pain, instead of moving on so fast like I always do. Each different…

CD Baby had lots of powerful well-funded competitors, but after a few years they were all but gone, and we dominated our niche of selling independent music. 150,000 musicians, 2 million music-buying customers, $139 million in revenue, $83 million paid directly to musicians. What was the secret to CD Baby’s success? I never did any marketing. Everyone came by word-of-mouth. But why? I honestly didn’t know. So whenever I was out talking with my musician clients,…

I hated it passionately. I complained to my friend that it was the worst thing I'd ever heard, and it must be some kind of joke. The second time I heard Tom Waits was a year later, when my roommate played me “Singapore”, and I hated it just as much. I still thought it must be some kind of in-joke.

  • 20 Nick Cave Quotes on the Creative Process

    Alison Nastasi
    20 Sep 2014 | 8:47 am
    This week marks the New York theatrical release of the Nick Cave experimental documentary 20,000 Days on Earth, directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard. Staged, but not scripted, the film explores Cave’s creative practice and the myth of the artist. “Those personas—the [Leonard] Cohens, the Dylans, the Caves, are quite fragile, and I think we should look after them,” Pollard stated in a mini doc about the film. “Our culture is shifting in meaning, and there aren’t going to be too many in the future, because you see too much.” As Cave is an eloquent writer and speaker, we’ve…
  • The 5 Best New Songs We Heard This Week: Prince, Betty Who

    Jillian Mapes
    19 Sep 2014 | 12:45 pm
    Look, I’m all for a big-booty anthem, but trust me when I say: Iggy-Iggs and J.Lo aren’t the droids you’re looking for. So here are some that are. Prince — “FUNKNROLL” Prince will release two different albums, PLECTRUMELECTRUM and Art Official Age, on September 30. So far we’ve heard a few songs off both, both none can touch AOA track “FUNKNROLL” (though “PRETZELBODYLOGIC” does get stuck in my head ~once a week). “FUNKNROLL” is Prince’s attempt at a modern club banger, particularly in the song’s…

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:15 am
    When Mike Hadreas was seven, he drew a pentacle in the sand while vacationing with his family. He was emulating something out of a movie, but when the babysitter caught him chanting and reacted with horror, he became convinced that the devil was in him or soon would be. “I kind of displaced all my shame straight up to the source,” he says. “A lot of who I was felt forbidden.” A still from Perfume Genius’s “Grid” video. The following year, after Hadreas watched a Dateline documentary about a woman possessed by Satan, he felt sure of his differentness. He…
  • Watch Lady Gaga Roll Around in New Perfume Ad

    Shane Barnes
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:58 am
    Lady Gaga has it all: A downward trending recording career, a friendship with music legend Tony Bennett, and now, a new perfume. Called Eau De Gaga and touted as being “for the adventurous woman and the man who loves her,” the new perfume will — if the boxing in the “film” is any indication — knock you on your ass. The clip, which is directed by fashion photographer Steven Klein and soundtracked by one of Gaga and Bennett’s duets, has Gaga in skimpy evening wear as she gropes herself and rolls around on handsome, ripped dudes. Perhaps the film is a…
  • Prince Releases Great New Song Called ‘FUNKNROLL,’ Because He Is Prince

    Shane Barnes
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:57 am
    It’s pretty much an inevitability that if Prince squeals within the first second of a song, it’s going to be a jam. Such is the case with “FUNKNROLL,” the latest track from Art Official Age, which is just one of two albums he has planned for a September 29 release. Perhaps Prince is taking some cues from his genre-bending protégé Janelle Monáe, because this song has everything: gnarly guitar shredding, electrified snares, prolific usage of the word “funk,” a creeping Southern beat, ambiguous vocal samples, and, ultimately, a goddamn explosion. Yes,…

The project of Doyle was the brainchild of his along with his band mate and songwriting partner, vocalist Alex Story (Cancerslug).

    Funky and sparkling, Mr Twin Sister‘s “In the House” is a perfect track to kick off the weekend. It breaks open with a tentative rhythm and occasional ivory flourishes before the bouncing dance groove gets fully lit with neon-bright disco lights and a lively, pulsating beat. I could say more, but I’d rather let your feet do the talking. In other words, this one’ll make you want to dance. You can pick up the album from their website.

For example, standout “Before The Stars” is a sparse, wind-swept vibe constructed from languid acoustic guitar riffs, ghostly atmospherics, and Rose’s softly sung lyrics. It’s a little eerie and a little chilly, but ultimately a beautiful experience overall.

    Noise annoys. That’s what your mom says. But apparently, Beauty Pageant didn’t get the memo. From oil drums and hubcaps to amplifier feedback and screams, the collective utilizes everything in their power to create a sonic landscape that toes carefully the line between harmony and chaos. In an age where the digital reigns supreme and recordings run rampant over Bandcamp and SoundCloud, the scant releases by Beauty Pageant serve to emphasize the importance of live performance, a give and take between artist and audience that would be lost in a room full of microphones. The group’s…

      St. Louis duo GOLDEN CURLS gets blissfully lost in the haze The whispery vocals and gentle approach of St. Louis natives Golden Curls should never be mistaken as fragile or delicate work. A virtual orchestra of guitar and synth tones weaves patterns in and out of the breaths between heavy-driving beats in a complex arrangement that the two members of the band have taken to calling “woozy pop.” Sarah Downen and Noah Blackwell began Golden Curls as a project strictly for fun in July of 2011. The end result of this largely long-distance creation was the release of their Warm Fiction…

    Ty Segall is one of garage rock’s most prolific and innovative musicians… who never makes it to St. Louis. Jenn DeRose provides a primer and a plea in advance of his new record, Manipulator. Ty Segall is a dirty blonde, cherub-faced, taco-loving surfer and skateboarder, an archetype of southern Californian dudeness. Although Segall is often labeled a garage revivalist, he refuses to be pigeonholed; solo period John Lennon, heavy metal, surf rock, punk and psychedelia are all incorporated in his music. With eight solo albums, endless touring and dozens of collaborations since 2008,…

Longtime OffBeat contributor Geraldine Wyckoff was on hand in Armstrong Park when trumpeter Shamarr Allen had a confrontation with Jazz in the Park security staff. Shamarr Allen at the 2009 Best of The Beat Awards.

This is a serious charge.” In contrast to larger festivals like Jazz Fest or French Quarter…

  • Ty Segall’s “Manipulator” Marries Garage Rock and Glam

    Andy Fenstermaker
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:29 pm
    After a far-too-lengthy hiatus, I have returned. And my gaze first turns toward prolific rocker Ty Segall‘s new LP, Manipulator. Last year I became a bit obsessed with early T. Rex, as in the stuff they released pre “T” under the guise Tyrannosaurus Rex. In particular, the album Beard of Stars. Around the same time, Segall gave us Sleeper, an almost entirely acoustic album that very much channeled Marc Bolan in his early days. This was quite the departure for Segall, but also an instrumental period leading toward Manipulator. Now, I haven’t done my research — I…
  • Darlings Tease New LP with “Centuries of Light”

    Andy Fenstermaker

    I have loved Darlings since they released their debut LP, Yeah I Know, back in 2009. Their subsequent EP and singles were equally pleasing to my ears. Then, in 2012, they released their sophomore LP, Perfect Trip, which easily trumped their prior releases. Now we have the first tease of what’s to come. It’s a song called “Centuries of Light” and it’ll be off the band’s third LP, which is called… well, we don’t even know what it’ll be called yet because the band hasn’t decided. I dig the sound. With each new release, Darlings stray a…

Couldn’t help but share one of the songs that made me fall in love with his music. Don’t think it’s about 4th of July itself, but hey, it’s called “Independence Day” so it’s worth sharing (though, you could also argue that Elliott Smith songs are ALWAYS worth sharing, and you’d also be right).

    One of my favorite new artists of 2013 was Seattle’s Rose Windows. Their debut LP, The Sun Dogs, on Sub Pop was a luscious array of mildly psych-induced folk rock fronted by Rabia Shaheen Qazi exotic vocals. It continues: Rose Windows have now given us a first taste of life beyond The Sun Dogs with a new single (also on Sub Pop) for “There Is A Light”. Others have traisped this arena before, as recently as the now popular Edward Sharpe — this blend of West-meets-East influenced folk-rock, this yearning for a more obscure and visionary sound. I didn’t make the…

    I always get a bit giddy when I get a new unsolicited email from Robert Dale. It always precedes a new track. My fourth such email communication with Mr. Dale was no exception. And here, two days later, I am quite chuffed to present the fourth song by Dale’s project Belgian Fog: “Before You Ever Talked”. Belgian Fog’s new track is a slight departure from what I’ve come to expect from Robert Dale. First, the song is early; previous tracks have been about six months in between, yet here we are less than four months since we premiered “Loveless Way”.

    Last week you got to hear a new song from The Ghost Inside called “Avalanche.” The track, as we now know, will appear on the band’s forthcoming album Dear Youth, which will get released in November. And yes…we’ve got another song for ya. Right now The Ghost Inside are on a massive Australian tour with I Killed The Prom Queen, and they’ll follow it up with a UK/European tour in October with Asking Alexandria. That’s a busy schedule if you ask us. Here’s another new song from the band, it’s the title track of the album. Dear Youth comes out…

    16 Sep 2014 | 11:38 am
    It’s been a long time coming, and finally the new album from Stick To Your Guns has been given a release date. The band’s forthcoming effort, a follow up to 2012’s Diamond, is called Disobedient. And it’s due out early next year. Months back we did a Q&A with STYG where guitarist Josh James told us about the new material. If you listen to the band’s discography, with each record we take a step further and further outside of the box. It’s the same thing with this new record. It’s a different Stick To Your Guns but it’s the same Stick To Your Guns. The fans…

  • Music In Review: Wand’s Otherworldly Debut Album “Ganglion Reef”

    Tricia Callahan
    10 Sep 2014 | 7:49 am
    L.A. quartet Wand has delivered their first album, “Ganglion Reef,” and from our first listen, it’s clear that their freshman  album effort comes from an otherworldly state of mind. The 10 tracks eloquently dip from intergalactic transmissions to lo-fi riff driven rock while running parallel with a synth vibe. The opening track, “Send/Receive” starts out as a wall of sound but, if you are patient,  you will be greeted by the oozy gooey center of a heart beat-paced bass line and delicious reverb. Front man Cory Thomas Hanson brings a stroke of elegance to…
  • Who We’d Cast in Martin Scorsese’s The Ramones Movie

    Meets Obsession
    28 Aug 2014 | 9:15 am
    So if you haven’t heard yet, Martin Scorsese is making a bipoic about the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band on earth, The Ramones.  Although there is no news  on production or release dates, the possibilities alone excites us. Really, if a movie were made about The Ramones, we’d want it to be directed by the great Martin Scorsese. Then we started thinking, who would Scorsese cast? Our excitement soon turned into horror as we imagined Martin Scorses’s favorite muse, Leonardo DiCaprio, acting in a role as Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee or Tommy…or any part, for that matter.  Not to say that…
  • LISTEN: “In Stillness We Remain” by Woman’s Hour

    Tricia Callahan
    25 Aug 2014 | 10:12 am
    Woman’s Hour is a four-piece mellow electronic pop band based out of Kendal, London. Their new single, “In Stillness We Remain,” off of their debut album “Conversations,” musically soothes while confronting the unrest of a relationship. The song’s retro beat leans toward ’80s soul with tones that are reminiscent of XX and Warpaint. Lyrically, it asks the age old question: “Are you going to stay?” Lead vocalist Fiona Burgess’s lyrics offer bits of advice to her unsure lover,  “If I were you, I’d dance around the…

    “When the winter ends, I’m leaving to find home that I believe in. And when the petrea blooms I’m leaving,” sings vocalist/guitarist Max Anderson on “I Was Watching, Too,” the opening track Bloom’s Quitting. The song’s kinetic dissatisfaction serves as an effective and familiar greeting to fans of emotionally-charged indie rock from the Midwest. This invigorating opener concludes with a wonderfully harmonized realization: “There’s not a single petrea within a hundred miles of the state I live in.”Though the lyrics on the first track give a magnetic power to a warm…

Now Daniel Woolhouse is back with a second track from the hotly anticipated second album Songs in the form of the innocent Two Hearts. “Love is enough” he repeats with romantic promise, convincing both his audience and himself that there can be something more, someone with whom two lives can become more than their constituent parts. Deptford Goth – Two Hearts was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

Now the north London band are finally putting out a ‘proper’ single, with Walrus favourites Transgressive stepping up to release the track on 27 October. Recorded with Spring King’s Tarek Musa on mixing duty, Powder is a sinister, tangled slice of weird and wonderful psyche rock that is rough, ready and even more distorted and underproduced than we imagined.

Now the LA-based musician is back with the 80s-influenced R&B pop ode to his home town of Hollywood and all the beauty and sunshine that is the West Coast of the US of A. Apparently dreams are Made in Hollywood. LANY – Made In Hollywood was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

    Of all musical instruments, the human voice is the both the most accessible - we all have one - and the most challenging to execute. In the right hands, there is no sound more transporting; when laden with unnecessary ornament or affectation, few things are more off-putting. As such, I approached last week's Resonant Bodies Festival, devoted exclusively to contemporary vocal performance, with no small amount of hesitation. It didn't help when I arrived at JACK in Clinton Hill on Tuesday to find a boxy performance space that someone decided to line in Reynolds Wrap. Whatever…

He covered Danzig’s “Mother” during the encore and brought out Johnny Depp, of all people, to help out on guitar.Covering Danzig with Johnny Depp perfectly embodies the eclecticism that is Ryan Adams—he can do folk for he can do metal, he can marry Mandy Moore and maintain very ounce of his indie creed. Sure he can cover Danzig and make it sound all his own—and he can do it with Johnny Depp without dumbing it down. Depp actually takes the…
  • Schoolboy Q remixes Disclosure and Sam Smith’s ‘Latch’

    Disclosure and Sam Smith have a robust three-way collaboration going with Mary J. Blige, and now they’re opening up the vault for reworking by other artists. Sam Smith’s “I’m Not The Only One” got a remix from A$AP Rocky recently, and now Schoolboy Q gives his own treatment to the Disclosure / Sam Smith barnburner “Latch.” He doesn’t really remix it so much as leave it be and interject himself into it for a verse toward the end. But this song never gets old, so we’re sure you won’t mind sitting through until his verse.

    In a year when women are being openly threatened and brutally abused all across the media, GWAR is putting them in their rightful place: at the front of the band.In a surprise announcement, the goliaths of metal have named Vulvatron as their new lead singer, following in the footsteps of the iconic Oderus Urungus and making her perhaps the biggest female frontwoman on Earth.The band clearly understood that the man under the Oderus costume, Dave Brockie, couldn’t possibly be replaced after his passing earlier this year, so they found the perfect way to keep the band going, which would have…

    While many may think that the use of copyrighted samples in music was settled long ago, Jay Z is leading the charge to redefine how the system works, as well as expose what is the musical equivalent of a “patent troll.” His legal team released some very strong words in response to their ongoing lawsuit involving the use of a single, sampled word on “Run This Town,” as the entire case boils down to two letters. Literally.The case made on behalf of TufAmerica claims that the sample of the word “oh” from Eddie Bo’s “Hook & Sling” was not agreed to, and that Rock-A-Fella has…

    THE first solo show in London by the young Venezuelan painter, Rodolfo Villaplana,’The Naked and The Nude’ promises to be an exceptional exhibition during Frieze Fringe this year, marking the artist’s first steps towards a strong position on the international contemporary art scene.

Francisco’s appearance at the national Festival of Thrift will see bin bags, dust bins, cardboard boxes, broken furniture and much more transformed into artistic equipment by Francisco who, by adding arms and faces, creates fun pieces of art in the form of monsters, humans and animals.

    By Gemma Brosnan WITH Mount Vesuvius looming to the east, the fumaroles of Campi Flegrei steaming to the west, and the isle of Capri floating like a phantom across the bay, Naples is blessed with a strikingly vivid setting. Yet despite being surrounded by immense natural splendour, Italy’s third largest city is the real show on offer, an intense urban concoction of histrionic, chaotic uniqueness. Life here transpires on the streets with a pace that constantly sways between leisurely southern comfort and whirling frenzy, a blunt antithesis of sterility and homogeneity. Dense brooding lanes…

    Dandy Warhols - Bohemian Like YouToday's Song of the Day is the Dandy Warhols - Bohemian Like You.  From 2000's 13 Tales from Urban Bohemia (a really good album) this is alternative rock, with plenty of echoes from elsewhere, particularly the Rolling Stones (hear the whoo whoo whoo and several of the guitar lines).  This version of the song's video is censored.  As you guessed, the band's name is a play on 60s counterculture icon Andy Warhol.  The song has been featured in both a number of movies and tv shows.

    Elliot Smith - Cupid's TrickToday's song of the day is from Elliott Smith - Cupid's Trick.  From 1997's Either/Or, this is a bit more rockin' Alternative than usual from Elliott Smith, a great and under appreciated artist who died way to young.  He plays all the instruments on this one, and his thin-reed voice leads the proceedings.  Not as much here, but in many other songs, seems like a descendent of Nick Drake, a folk legend of the late 60s who also died tragically young.

It's a case of few adornments, and letting the wood speak for itself for me. It's partly a taste thing, but also one about value for money, and I am talking about both here…

Coronus, The Terminator comes after the release of songs like Moment of Hesitation (featuring Herbie Hancock!) and Never Catch Me. I love that the new single has this psychedelic, gospel feel to it. It really blends well with the overall theme that seems to be taking shape around this album.

His talent hasn’t gone unnoticed. Since releasing his debut project, Ang Low has now teamed up with the London based label, Super…

  • Engineer Ed Stasium On The Latest Inner Circle Podcast

    Bobby Owsinski
    20 Sep 2014 | 10:30 am
    My latest Inner Circle podcast features the great engineer Ed Stasium who talks about the excellent guitar sound that he gets (my personal favorite) on the records that he's done for The Ramones, Living Color, and Mick Jagger among many others. We'll also touch upon some interesting other bits of his engineer career, like his first record ("Midnight Train To Georgia").In the intro section, I also talk about the pros and cons of giving your music away, as well as the 8 different things that enter into creating a production budget.Remember that you can find the podcast either…
  • The Who "Who Are You" Isolated Drums

    Bobby Owsinski
    18 Sep 2014 | 9:30 pm
    I just love listening to tracks from a hit song. It doesn't matter from which era, since each hit captures some kind of magic, and it's fun trying to sort out exactly what that magic is. Today we'll look at the drum track from a hit from The Who from 1978 called "Who Are You."This was the last recording of drummer Keith Moon, as he died 20 days after the album was released. Moon was a one-of-a-kind drummer, especially when compared with the drummers of today, and you'll hear that his playing is almost garage-band like, although it was perfect for The Who at the time.What's interesting was…
  • How Much Does Music Contribute To A Film?

    Bobby Owsinski
    17 Sep 2014 | 9:30 pm
    It's really easy to take film music for granted. When it's done really well, we don't notice it at all; it just enhances the film in ways that we really perceive, but don't necessarily pay attention to.Here's a great example of how important the music of a film can be. It's a short clip from the original Star Wars (Episode 4), but minus the John Williams score after the first 15 seconds.Considering that this was the feel good payoff of the film, notice how awkward it is without the music (kind of like real life sometimes).So hail to all film composers and all the things you do! Help support…
  • Getting The Most From Amp Tone Controls

    Bobby Owsinski
    16 Sep 2014 | 9:30 pm
    I'm always kind of baffled when I hear a band live and there's no separation between instruments, especially between guitar players. Then I think back to when I was a young player and remember, "They just don't know how to set their tone controls yet."For too many players, setting those amp tone controls is such a random act with little thought behind it. Here's an excerpt from my Ultimate Guitar Tone Handbook (written with the excellent guitar player, composer and author Rich Tozzoli) that gives some context as to how to get those most out of these controls."So often players are confused by…
  • Using Sound To Talk To Atoms

    Bobby Owsinski
    15 Sep 2014 | 9:30 pm
    I love when I hear about audio or music being used for things other than what we're familiar with, and this is a really good one. One of the latest uses for audio is in quantum physics where scientists from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden are using sound to communicate with with atoms.Quantum physics deals with particles at a nanoscopic or sub-atomic scale and a great number of everyday products like the transistor, the laser and the MRI machine operate on a quantum scale. You might say that modern audio, which is so dependent upon the microchip, is a direct result of what…

    It is the rarity for music groups to keep the same lineup over the course of it's history. Reasons include (but not exclusive to):Sick of being poorSick of travelingSick of bandmatesSick of abusing substancesSick of corporate runaroundsSick of being sickSick of being unknown Sick of being known Sick of being underapprcatedSick of being badIllness DeathAny or all of those have put the kibosh on the dreams or harmony of a musical group.

         Last time many of you heard from me on this forum, we had stopped the radio show and the blog posts had slowed to a trickle. Life had changed our plans, and although we willing accepted the changes in our career plans and our move to Southern Mississippi, the extra responsibilities caused me to rethink some priorities and the radio show AND blog went by the wayside.     There were attempts on my part to re-ignite the blog by setting up a new site and domain name, but just couldn't get the mojo working again. A friend of mine said to me several years…

         A funny thing has happened to the Omnibus over the last two months...     In September of this year, I put the Omnibus aside for some time. We had moved to Southern Mississippi to assist with the care of my wife's mother. My desire was to continue teaching piano to children, which was what I had been doing in Nashville. For whatever reasons, I miscalculated my ability to quickly grow the same business down here, and found myself in the unenviable position of looking for work. The radio show was the first to go, and then about a month later it was…
  • Edwin Hawkins Singers--Oh Happy Day (1969)

    Cas Countz
    27 Sep 2013 | 8:39 am
          The advent of You Tube has brought an entirely different avenue for people to become music stars. In the early days of rock music especially in the US, artists would become popular in their local area, put a record out, and hope that a national chain would buy the contract so that the artist would get national exposure. This was the way that the Edwin Hawkins Singers would do it as well, the story behind this great song is even more interesting.     Edwin Hawkins was a prodigy, having taken over as the keyboard player in his family's gospel…

         I have always liked Michael J. Fox. "Family Ties" was one of the only sitcoms I bothered to watch in the 80's (heck, it's one of the few I've bothered to watch period), mainly because of his talents, and his movies have been consistently good, even though many of his best known roles were variations on his Alex P. Keaton persona. Although many point to the "Back to the Future" movies as his best, my favorites were, "Secret of my Success" and "Doc Hollywood". It's the latter movie which leads me to today's blog.      British singer, Chesney Hawkes…

  • Album of the Week: Dead Soft- S/T

    11 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Vancouver's Dead Soft caught my attention with their 2013 EP Teen Fiction, but they floored me with their latest self-titled album. Dead Soft by Dead Soft Their fuzz-pop ethos remains but emits a more focused, mature, and meaty sound this time around. Heavier, pedal-fueled grunge guitars provide a perfect foundation for lead singer Nathaniel Epp's sweet yet gravely vocals while subtle background vocals from bassist Keeley Rochon adds a special balance to the music. The harmonies and pop undertones are still present from their last EP; however, it's a moodier and more grown up…
  • Flesh World- S/T LP

    4 Sep 2014 | 3:33 pm
    On their debut LP, San Francisco, CA’s Flesh World play ice-soaked punk rock led by dark and infectious guitar flourishes and a just-under-the-surface pop sensibility that makes each song an immediate stand out track.  Featuring band members who are all veterans of the DIY punk scene — from bands including Limp Wrist, Brilliant Colors, Needles, and more — Flesh World brings influences from a host of punk sub-genres together, calling to mind the tense moodiness of classic British post punk, the sneer of the 1977 school, and just a hint of C86 flourish and feedback. Most importantly,…

    Bushwick-based post-punk foursome Giggly Boys made a name for themselves earlier this summer with their debut EP entitled .. by Giggly BoysFull of grinding guitar scuzz, primitive drumming, and moody vocals, Giggly Boys' EP is abrasive yet alluring as 80s goth, post-punk, and Protomartyr-esque sounds circle around the lead singer's reckless stop-start barks. The EP as a whole is a grower, but "Sick Joke" is a scorcher that will immediately grab your ear. Supposedly this band was just for shits and giggles-- hence the name-- but I'm hoping they continue to fuck around.

    19 Aug 2014 | 12:14 pm
    “Hey, let’s jam.” Do those words strike fear into your heart? Does your little internal ukulele player start saying things like, What if I don’t know the song? What if I don’t know the chords? What if I don’t know the strum pattern? What if someone looks at me and says, “Take it!”? Yes, there is much to fear when ...

    #75. Hmph. Tough week in the wilderness, a lot of very marginal music on Kickstarter in particular, but I can’t let Indiegogo go without a flame: ooofff for most of the campaigns there, too. Soooo… a one-and-one this time around — the music from the AMAZING Flannel Graph should be more than enough for two. Hare and the Hounds not too shabby either, so I’m happy with the quality control on this post. As always, thanks to all the artists in advance for letting me use photos and allowing me to embed your wonderful, original music. Let me know if credit is due for photos.

    If you’re following along, you know that this weekend is Riot Fest in Chicago. I, as stated before, am not there, but if you are, perhaps you should give this a heads-up. See, being in my 30s, and being that I was to be in a great city, I wanted to make sure I had time to spend in the city, with my friend, or both during the trip, instead of locking myself in Humboldt Park for 12 hours, eating overpriced fairground food, sitting in mud, and other things old folks don’t dig. As such, I went through the “bottom twenty” so to speak, or the bands which were listed lowest…

    This week, I was supposed to be preparing to go to my first music festival. Sure, as a teen I went to a few Ozzfests, and one legendary Locobazooka, but these were day-long events. I have never found myself at Bonnaroo, though I’m ecstatic with its turn from hippie blazefest to music festival over the course of the last decade. Lollapalooza, despite being an important touchstone from the ’90s, was a tour I was too young to get to in its first incarnation, and an event I’ve been overall unimpressed by as a three-day bender. Pitchfork’s fest would be intolerable. SXSW,…
  • What Makes a Parody “Good”?

    Alex Lupica
    6 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    It is a fact universally acknowledged that songs of a certain age and popularity are basically destined to find themselves covered by “Weird” Al Yankovic. It is probably equally acknowledged, however, that the man goes into and out of obscurity, like clockwork, at about the same rate as the songs he targets. The first big leaks of a Weird Al-bum blow up social media (this is true as far back as Alapalooza, the first release that was on my radar around 20 years ago, which came with MTV news briefs, exclusive premiers, and probably a round of Al-TV). Shortly after, he fades back…
  • Self – Runaway

    5 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Lots of people may argue this point, but without a doubt the most important thing to happen in music since we went off air in the spring, in my eyes, was the return of Self. Self, the band run by the creator of the score to Henry Hugglemonster and the Expedia (dot cooooooom) jingle. Self, the band you didn’t remember last time we talked about them, and might remember vaguely from us once mentioning them. Don’t judge: it was important to me! The nice thing is, this second time around, Self has gotten some fairly interesting support. They’ve performed on Jimmy Kimmell. They’ve had the…

    3 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    I first heard Allen Toussaint’s “Freedom For the Stallion” on his collaborative album with Elvis Costello, a collection of Toussaint’s songs, and some collaborative originals, meant to benefit the reconstruction efforts after Hurricane Katrina. The album was not exclusively themed around the event, but certainly songs like “The River In Reverse” were created to touch on the tragedy.  Other songs from Toussaint’s back catalog were equally diverse: some reflected the reality of a post-Katrina New Orleans, while others were simply solid tracks from the New Orleans musician’s…

    18 Sep 2014 | 4:51 am
    Broxbourne’s  Ivy and Gold (aka Rachel Wilkinson and Jamie Davies) were in London Wednesday evening (17th September 2014) to celebrate the release of their new EP ‘Smoke & Mirrors’, with a rather special live headline performance at the stunning ‘St. Pancras Old Church’. After a busy year for the electro-pop duo this was an opportunity to air their new material as well as tracks from their previous releases, the ‘Eye of the Storm’ and ‘Awake’ EP’s. The sold-out show at St Pancras Old Church confirmed that the band are very much in the ascendency. Memorable harmonies,…
  • LIVE MUSIC : Dan Michaelson & the Coastguards – Slaughtered Lamb, London (15th September 2014)

    Those fortunate enough to follow Dan Michaelson on any of the various forms of social media will already be aware of the artists laid back and ‘share-all’ approach to the circus that can sometimes be the music industry. He is un-afraid to post criticism (see the very funny Amazon review on his Twitter account) and has a like-ability and sense of humour that you can’t help be drawn into. When you consider these factors and that the British singer-songwriter has also released one of 2014’s finest albums, ‘Distance’, there was no way the trek from east London to…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : Will and the People – ‘Whistleblower’

    Paul Smith
    11 Sep 2014 | 2:37 am
    Over the years i’ve not had the strongest of bonds with reggae. That same bond shatters completely when the genre is needlessly replicated by European artists, whose closest association to the West Indies is a can of Red Stripe and the distinction of owning Bob Marley’s ‘Exodus’. UB40 and their karaoke cover versions, of once outstanding releases, further destroyed any interest i had in a music type that was perviously renowned for social protest, and not red wine. However, my reggae bond, it would appear, now shows signs of a surprising recovery due to a clever mixture of the…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : In-Flight Safety “Conversationalist”

    Paul Smith
    1 Sep 2014 | 11:20 am
    A couple of weeks ago In-Flight Safety debuted their new track, ‘Animals’, and we instantly made it Track of the Day at GIGsoup. We even dared to suggest that the release maybe the catchiest indie-pop track of 2014. And while we salivated over the wonderful melodic chorus and it’s general feel-good factor we waited, quite impatiently, for the remaining 9 tracks that would make up the bands third album ‘Conversationalist’. ‘Conversationalist’ lands in the UK on September 22nd with Conehead and then in the US on October 14th with Ooh La La Records.

The accompanying hard-hitting video considers the never-ending, unattainable portrayal of ‘the perfect woman’. With unavoidable advertising and mounting social pressure from both sexes. The band will be playing Proud Camden this August and have…

  • Belle Jewel rocks Indie Pop with timeless lyrics and emotive vocals

    Steven Fies
    17 Sep 2014 | 7:00 pm
    Belle Jewel is another really talented artist I recently discovered on ReverbNation.  It's plenty easy to see (or rather, hear) why they pushed her to the top of the featured artists page recently.  With a very soothing and intentional vocal, her music carries effortlessly from one measure to the next.  Before even looking at the "sounds like" section of her profile, where similar artists are listed for search purposes, I'd already heard strong similarities to greats like Adele and Norah Jones.Her remake of Nat King Cole's L-O-V-E is really special, too, as it gels the old time…

In addition to the release of her debut self-titled album, Kim has penned a guest editorial for Lockeland Springsteen, consulted on and served as muse for a collection by fashion designer…
  • Alex Johnson (Goodbye Blue Monday) has two of the best acoustic songs I've heard in a while

    Steven Fies
    16 Sep 2014 | 6:00 pm
    Alex Johnson is the artist and creative genius behind Goodbye Blue Monday.  His acoustic style and voice combine a rock influence with the laid-back feel that comes with acoustic playing: it gives me that hanging-out-with-friends-on-Friday-night at a bonfire feel, like I'm sitting on Blacks beach in San Diego, CA watching the waves break as the sun sets.  It's very pleasing and relaxing, and the music allows you to simply let go of your worries for a few minutes while you listen.  My only complaint is that there aren't more tracks available!So, what got you started with all…

  • Franklin - The Rock Band from Aberdeen

    Steven Fies
    15 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Franklin is a band that is both easy to listen to and fun to get into.  Songs like "Now I Know" have an upbeat rhythm with classic rock tones, while "Miss Conception" starts out more mellow but grows into a rich chorus with growing dynamic elements.  The band currently has more than 5,000 followers on ReverbNation, too! This is what Lewis had to say during our brief interview together.1. When did you originally start playing music?  Tell us a little bit about your introduction to the great world of music.Franklin originated from what we call "bedroom players" it was mostly…

Last week it was reported that two jazz musicians—Eric Reed and Willie Jones III—were suing Lamar for using unauthorized samples in his 2011 hit “Rigamortis.” According to Reed and Jones, “Rigamortis” is nothing more than a looped sample of their own tune “The Thorn,” which was released on their 2010 album, The Next Phase. While lawsuits over samples are nothing new, this particular one grabbed my attention…

    Los Angeles indie-Americana duo, Smoke Season recently unveiled the music video for their new single, “Badlands.” The video was shot in the desert of Joshua Tree, CA and plays like an old Western movie.

    It's Autumn or at least nearly, and it's time to run down all the most highly-anticipated LPs, set for release throughout the season.Summer (release-wise) was, in a word, shit. We featured a host of anticipated albums but, other than the ones we mentioned, there was a lack of quality, but considering summer is mainly the festival season it was still pretty acceptable. We're moving out of festival season now though, and we've got so many releases to mention that we've had to cut it down and include some "honourable mentions" so not to bore everyone to death s-…

  • Apple / U2 Controversy With iTunes Users

    dangellert
    18 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Last week I wrote about Apple gifting U2’s new album, Songs Of Innocence, to all their iTunes users. Since then, a controversy has ensued. It appears some people are really really angry about having U2’s album pushed on them (actually into their iTunes purchased tab). It’s unclear to me if most people are mad, or just a small minority of people are angry but yelling the loudest about their Apple/U2 frustration. I’m inclined to say most of the 500 million iTunes users aren’t bothered, don’t care or even know about U2’s album available to them for free.

    Beats Music apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone all have updates today. Since Apple TV is considered an iOS device, it’s update includes the addition of a Beats Music app. Spotify, Rdio, and Pandora don’t have native Apple TV apps yet, so the competition won’t be as fierce for the streaming music mindshare on the Apple TV platform. New version #’s: iOS ver. 2.3.0 — requires iOS 7.0 or later. Android ver. 1.2.2 — requires Android 4.0 and up. Windows Phone ver. 1.17.0.0 — works with Windows Phone 8 and 8.1. What’s new for the iOS version?

    ‘Strategic conversation’ might be how I would describe Tim Cook speaking with Charlie Rose. The Apple CEO states only what he wants you to know, nothing more. He does not over-share. He also, quite effectively, makes a story out of most points. Cook talks a lot about the Apple process, the continued influence of Steve Jobs, and just-a-bit about Beats Music. He describes how he came to the decision to acquire Beats earlier this year. Cook says, while exploring the different streaming music services, It dawns on me that when I listen to theirs [Beats Music] for a while I feel,…

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    4.3NEN RATINGAfter bursting into view at the tender age of 16, Leo Stannard was tipped as one to watch. A phenomenal young talent, he’s gone from strength to strength after his first appearance on The Mahogany Sessions. His eagerly awaited second EP is due for release on 13 October. After teasing us with the easy going summer vibes of ‘Why Don’t We’, released earlier in the year, Stannard is following this up with a total change of pace and style in ‘Now Is Not The Time’. The more folky sound of this new track balances beautifully against the poignant…

The best thing which makes Clare stand out is his incredible voice, it’s what is setting him aside from the rest and making his music sound incredible. ‘Two Hearts’ is pretty special, you can really see the progression from the first album ‘The Lateness of the Hour’. ‘Take Me Back’ and ‘Holding On’ are two definite favourites on the album, they’re edgy,…

    How to Sing Better

  • Should We Sing Like We Speak?

    Andy Barnes
    14 Sep 2014 | 4:12 am
    In my travels I have seen many different singing techniques, from no technique at all, to singing from your hips, and more recently I saw a video clip where a vocal teacher told a student to sing from their toes – go figure. One of the more popular techniques that has been around for a while is speech level singing and its many variants. While I am not here to criticize other singing techniques, I do want to explore this concept further in this article to understand whether singing and speaking are the same thing, or are they entirely different? Are Singing And Speaking The Same Thing?

    Andy Barnes
    16 Jul 2014 | 6:23 am
    In this post, I wanted to explore the importance of learning a good technique and how it can apply to singing style. We all know that there are different styles or genres in singing. From pop to classical/operatic, rock to R&B, country to gospel, and all variations in between. There is a myth that singing training or technique only applies to the classical or operatic singers, and singers from other styles and genres won’t benefit from learning how to sing correctly. Well, today I want to bust this myth, so let’s get started. What’s So Important About Technique…

That’s right, we are all born making sound naturally.Did you also know that your voice doesn’t have to deteriorate as you age. In fact, my singing teacher’s teacher was quite happily singing high C’s well into his 90’s and right up until the day he died. Most people seem to think that as you get older that you won’t be able to sing as you did when you were younger, but it’s a myth, your voice should get better with age, not worse. What’s The Problem I think we all have heard a…

    Most singers will spend much of their career learning how to successfully navigate the bottleneck octave, trying to achieve a smooth transition from one end of their range to the other. You may have heard this concept referred to as the “mix”, or mixing/blending the voice. What ever name people will give it, they are essentially all talking about the same thing. In this article, I want to answer the question of how to get better at singing by exploring the bottleneck octave, defining what it is, why it is the cause of so many problems and how we can learn to smash through it.

  • How to remove U2’s ‘Songs of Innocence’ album from iTunes

    musicuniverse
    16 Sep 2014 | 3:49 pm
    Just last week, U2 released their newest album, Songs of Innocence, by announcing without any prior announcement at Apple’s iPhone 6 launch event that they were giving it away for free to all 500 million iTunes users. It’s now come to their attention (and Apple’s) that not everyone was particularly happy to find a U2 album in their cloud. (Particularly those users with the “automatic downloads” feature turned on, who automatically got the album downloaded to their devices.) It was seen as a violation of privacy for some, the forced experience of a U2 album for…

  • Top Ten Scottish Indie Bands

    Jamie Coughlan
    18 Sep 2014 | 11:42 am
    I’m skeptical about the motivation for David Cameron’s visit to Scotland. Is it too much to suggest the whole debacle was carefully planned and staged so as to further the cause of the yes vote? I mean, no one in Scotland likes Tories and no one anywhere likes David Cameron so why would his opinion hold any sway? Perhaps he was intended as a Trojan horse. Scotland is a Labour stronghold, and so the benefit of Scotland’s independence to the Conservatives seems pretty self evident. A canny move by the Tories. Personally, I find myself torn. If I was Scottish and living in…

Joel RL Phelps is in fact a singer songwriter originating from Montana and founding member of seminal indie rock band Silkworm. He ditched them some twenty years ago and carved out a niche solo career for himself for the next ten years. Don’t know what he did next, but it wasn’t his solo work. Eventually,…

It is from this place of revolution and fear the producer Arca has emerged.

The software actually emulates four of them in one package, VIER actually meaning “four” in german. VIER benefits from modern synth engines and behind the scenes gizmos so aside from the literal emulation the software allows parameter linking between the units and “intelligent” voice management. VIER runs stand-alone on Windows and Mac OS X or as plugin via VST, AU, RTAS and AAX. The software is available on the Eisenberg website and has an introductory…
