    For quite a while now, the lack of women being played on country radio has been a topic of discussion. Despite there being an over-abundance of talented women to choose from, nothing's really changed in the last couple of years and no one can seem give a definitive answer as to why it's not changing. But now one brave soul has come forward to give the answer that no one wants to hear but a lot of radio people are maybe thinking, and his answer had Jennifer Nettles tweeting one very memorable response.

    This is not your standard recount of a punk album collector’s purchases and memories of the records he bought over the years; it’s not a compendium of albums all punks (or ex-punks) should have.  What Bob Suren has done is to inject some highly personal and emotionally wrenching anecdotes to go along with the memories of hearing, searching for and either buying or re-releasing certain punk albums of the initial hardcore era from the early ’80’s.

Channeling figureheads like Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley, Nassuet combines a wholly folky sound with vocals that sometimes ebb on stadium-rock worthy. On “Cross and Crown,” the album’s opener, he…

    27 May 2015 | 4:42 pm
    A truck owned by Walmart nearly killed actor Tracy Morgan, but the two entities have come to a legal resolution on a 2014 collision. The crash, which happened in July of 2014, took the life of Tracy’s comedian friend James McNair and the actor with injuries he has yet to recover from in full. A Walmart driver, driving over 20 miles over the speed limit on the New Jersey Turnpike, careened his tractor-trailer into a limo bus that held Tracy Morgan’s group. Tracy settled with Walmart for an undisclosed amount, which is likely several million. “Walmart did right by me and my family, and…

    You may be forgiven for assuming that the five Welsh musicians who call themselves Joanna Gruesome play a generalized, Rat-Finkish version of anti-indie-snobbery punk rock. A Garbage Pail kid come to life clutching a copy of Vice, maybe. Whether it’s their intention or not, that name instantly and inevitably turns them into a caricature; whether […]

That album’s gentle, slightly tinted melodies seemed to come to the duo so easily that it’s no surprise they’ve already finished work on its followup, Green Lanes. Lead single “Break the Chain” continues Hoare and Cooper’s […]

  • Richard Prince Isn’t a Thief — He’s a Genius

    27 May 2015 | 2:19 pm
    People have been up in arms about artist Richard Prince screenshotting people’s posts on Instagram and selling them for upwards of $100,000 at Frieze. It sounds like a clear case of copyright infringement, right? Why should this guy be making so much money off of other people’s works? Because he’s a genius.   First off, this is Richard Prince’s metier; he’s been appropriating photographs, advertisements and other works since the ‘70s. It’s in a similar vein to Pop Artists purloining mass culture as subjects (Andy Warhol, Richard Hamilton) or other “rephotographers”…

    Photo courtesy of the Dream Downtown One of the best things about summer in the city is rooftop pools. The muggy heat and beating sun necessitate the need for a quick dip, and the inherent cool of New York means that its pools aren’t just ordinary aquatic settings. We’ve culled through the rooftop pool scenes in Manhattan and Brooklyn to bring you the best the city has to offer, from ones with spa-like serenity to others that you can literally dance into.

    Why doesn’t Spotify have more paying subscribers?  The reasons are simple: (1) people are already subscribing to way too many other things, and (2) those other ‘things’ make free music way too easy to access. From a just-published survey from Blackhawk Engagement Solutions (notice music isn’t even on the questionnaire): And when it comes to music services, they typically prefer the free stuff… The post Gee, I Wonder Why People Aren’t Paying for Streaming Music Services… appeared first on Digital Music News.

    What does “Indie” mean to you? Does it mean quirky or artsy?  Or does it just refer to the style of a person?  Or does it just mean that the same giant-assed companies have found a new way to make you feel like an educated consumer who is simply more aware of art than others? So what is ‘Indie’ actually, by the current real-world definition? Nothing but a contrived ploy, created only to pull more money out of your wallets while damaging the public conception of independent art!

Attorney Brent Bryson says any claims of murder are “baseless and unfounded and are unsupported in reality.” Bryson also says King’s business manager “did everything she could to carry out the wishes of Mr. King while he was alive, and continues to carry out Mr. King’s wishes after his death“.

The song comes from the band’s upcoming debut full-length, Before The World Was Big, out June 2 on Wichita Recordings. Cherry Picking dips down to near empty spaces and back up to shouting by the end: “Yes I am picking cherries/I have a hard time staying clean!” Though the overall musical minimalism casts doubt on that ending self-effacing affirmation.

    Seapony Well the summer-ready singles just keep on coming. Within two years, Seapony had two summer-ready albums on Hardly Art, jangly, breezy, and robotic in a freindly way, given the smattering of vintage drum machines and synths. For whatever reasons, Seapony swam off to an island somewhere, but are back with their first new album in three years. The self-released A Vision comes out July 31, and today the band let loose with the lofty single Saw The Light that shows no sign of rust.

In the clip, her buds are doing lots of “eighties” things and Ms. Lewis is in lite-disco mode and smiling and being coy and admitting to cheating and it’s all quite cute.

Their recent third, self-titled album on American Recordings was produced by Rick Rubin and is a slow-burn shot for summer success. This brand new video for From The Stalls is a visual representative of said summer slow-burn. It is plainly gorgeous, shot in south Australia, featuring shots of floating boats against sunrises, desert vistas, and ending with the lovely pair wandering through increasingly chilling night…

    I wrote a lengthy post yesterday that explained an approach that I use with a lot of clients I work with and businesses I run. It’s called “The Mirror of Erised Marketing and Branding Theory.” In short, what I do with clients/businesses, is determine if the product or service they offer reflects an image back to the customer that makes the customer feel more realized for having used the product or service. The inspiration for this is the scene in Harry Potter where Harry stumbles upon a magical mirror that reflects Harry with his parents. The name of the mirror is The Mirror…

This is actually a great recipe for guacamole. It’s how I make it at home. What’s remarkable, however, isn’t the recipe itself, but rather that Chipotle is – in theory – giving away their secret sauce.

    “What I am trying to achieve is to be what I am to the fullest—Black to the fullest, a musician to the fullest, and a homosexual to the fullest. It is important that I learn how to be, by that I mean accept everything about me.” Julius Eastman (27 October 1940-28 May 1990)—composer, pianist, vocalist, improviser, conductor, actor, choreographer, and dancer—has left a musical legacy worthy of special attention. Now is a prime moment to attend to Eastman and his work, as we recognize and honor the loss of this significant musical figure just twenty-five years ago from today.

    The filming and recent airing of the HBO film Bessie, which stars Queen Latifah as Bessie Smith, serves as a perfect excuse to look back at the music and life of the woman who was accurately billed as the Empress Of The Blues. When Bessie Smith made her recording debut in 1923, she was not the first blues singer to record. Ma Rainey’s “Crazy Blues” in 1920 had been such a major hit that it began a blues craze with scores of African-American female singers being documented. While many were quickly forgotten, Ethel Waters and Alberta Hunter were the biggest discoveries before Smith…

Like other Jewish musicians in later times, among them Ernest Bloch, Darius Milhaud, and Leonard Bernstein, Rossi confronted the problems of preserving his Jewish identity in a…

    Incorporating the idea of sweetness in songs is nothing new to the music industry. Ubiquitous terms like “sugar” and “honey” are used in ways of both endearment and condescension, love and disdain. Among the (probably) hundreds of songs about sweets, Aaron Gilbreath, essayist and journalist from Portland, Oregon, curated a list of 50 songs, which is included in The Oxford Companion of Sugar and Sweets.

    For quite a while now, the lack of women being played on country radio has been a topic of discussion. Despite there being an over-abundance of talented women to choose from, nothing's really changed in the last couple of years and no one can seem give a definitive answer as to why it's not changing. But now one brave soul has come forward to give the answer that no one wants to hear but a lot of radio people are maybe thinking, and his answer had Jennifer Nettles tweeting one very memorable response.

  • Why has Canada become the new hotspot for mega music festivals?

    28 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    When Shannon McNevan was growing up in Peterborough, Ont., he remembers going to big music festivals that lasted entire weekends and saw tens of thousands of people get together for a shared experience. In the '90s, big-tent festivals were a big thing, but they were also short-lived, a brief reminder of the festival heyday of the late '60s. Edenfest, held in nearby Bowmanville, Ont., in 1996, saw 90,000 people converge on a race track for three days. It was scheduled to be held for 10 years but the promoter went bankrupt after the first — and only — event. Woodstock got nostalgic in 1994…

The singer, formerly of Rilo Kiley, just released the music video for "She’s Not Me," off of her 2014 album, The Voyager, and she enlisted Girls’ Zosia Mamet, Fred Armisen, Saturday Night Live’s Vanessa Bayer and Feist (!) for the project.

  • The Easter Voice... Music That Lives On

    Benton FergusonI'm writing this blogpost in the car while my husband drives us to the memorial service for my amazing nephew Benton Ferguson. It's Easter weekend, in my faith, the celebration of Jesus' resurrection, and the parallels are too obvious not to mention. Ben fully embodied the life, the music and the voice that lives on. The family has had a year to process and come to terms with Ben's passing from brain cancer. There is a strange relief that without a doubt he is no longer suffering. He left a big universe of love from friends whose lives he deeply impacted, and that is now…
  • Listening to Tight Voices? Danger: It can Tighten Your Own

    Judy Rodman
    30 Mar 2015 | 9:20 am
    Whew.. even just looking at this pic makes me cough...Be careful what you listen to. You know that phrase 'you are what you eat'? Well, your voice tends to mimic (be) what it hears (consumes). If you stop and think about it, the way a baby learns to talk is by listening to other voices. Not only does the child learn language, he/she also learns and assumes the inflections, tone, rhythms and other nuances and characteristics of the voices it hears most often. These different vocal tone and nuance choices are created not only by the shape, density and size of the larynx and resonators…
  • Vocal Strain: What is it? What can you do about it?

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

I miss Amiri Baraka. I miss his ferocity, his observations, and his powerful artistic expressiveness. I miss him tapping the side of the podium, keeping time to an imaginary metronome, improvising his own horn, or making sure the horn player (when there was one) was on time. I miss the faces of the young people in the crowd while Amiri Baraka was reading.

No. Could it be true? What kind of study was this? What were they smoking?

    Peter Lee

    Pat Benatar was a rocker, plain and simple. Overlook her melodic hooks, keyboard-laden accompaniments and harmonies. She emerged from the 1970s as a sexually tough arena rock star, often getting lumped into AOR (Mom alert: Album-Oriented Rock) acts such as Foreigner, Journey and Heart. But as can happen with most hard rockers, they tend to soften up a little to reach a winder audience (See Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is," Journey's "Open Arms," and Heart's "Alone"). 1982's Get Nervous featured more synthesizers and less hard rock, and even her look changed; she exchanged…

I recently listened to Prince's entire catalog as I read his biographies, trying to put each album in context along with his recording process and his frame of mind during that time. And the same thing happened as it did back when I was growing up: After 1987, the quality of his musical output suddenly plummeted. Everything after Sign O' the Times  - with the exception of a handful of songs here and there - was a…
  • Top 5 Prince Covers That Were Better Than the Original

    Peter Lee
    7 Apr 2015 | 11:47 am
    Prince has been a very generous songwriter. He's given away hundreds of songs to artists (mostly his protegé groups such as the Time, the Family, Sheila E. and Vanity 6). Others have decided to cover his songs, and most of the time a cover isn't as good as the original. But in a few cases, the cover is better than Prince's original effort, to the point where some Prince originals are almost unlistenable, especially after years of hearing the cover. Here are a few covers that surpass what Prince initially put down on tape: Any song by The Time - In demos, Prince apparently dictated exactly…

    It's a shame that Prince's greatest album was never released. In the 1980s, Prince reached his commercial peak in 1984 with the smash album and movie Purple Rain. He followed that up quickly (and rather unceremoniously) with the eclectic and disjointed Around the World in a Day, which left many fans scratching their heads. But it was a giant step forward musically, with the Purple One embracing the Paisley Underground scene, the late 60s psychedelic sound, and even world music. His next album, Parade: Music from the Motion Picture Under the Cherry Moon, was more accessible, featuring the #1…

    Build a massive house made of concrete in the middle of a grove of 130 beautiful protected old oak trees and you have an ugly disaster in your hands.   This scenario sounds likely but it was elegantly avoided in the Oak Pass Main House that Walker Workshop designed for a private client in Beverly Hills, California.   The house sits on a 3.5-acre site at the rim of a canyon, which is why the fantastic views were the main consideration of the house plan.   The ornate oak trees provide a contrast for the hard edges of the low-lying house - a delicate balance not easily achieved.

Transport systems are the vessels which allow that blood to move and public infrastructure is the brains of the operation which facilitates the growth and movement of blood cells. Equally important though is that essential organ called the heart. From a geographical sense, the centre of the city is considered the heart however more importantly it's the spaces within a…
  • Voodoo Ray's Pizza - London

    22 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    It’s yet another example of the worlds of food, design and architecture colliding as this clever modern adaption of the pizza parlor has forever changed the way people grab a slice. Maybe it didn’t seem possible that this experience could be revolutionized yet a collaboration between Voodoo Ray’s and London based design consultancy firm Brinkworth has done exactly this. The collaborative effort these two entities have come up with is mouth-watering both aesthetically and in taste. In every sense of the word Voodoo Ray’s is iconic. Just as a pizza is modular and has an…
  • Asia de Cuba - New York

    21 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    It's Asian cuisine engineered by a Cuban born and raised chef done with a Latin twist. It speaks true to the character of New York City as its innovative, appeals to the senses and runs the fine line between sophisticated and whimsical. There's a representation through the food of one man's dream to make it big in New York, this man being chef Luis Pous but more importantly it holds a much larger significance within a unique social context.  The menu is exquisite and genuinely original. From black bean & plantain empanadas to ginger & papaya marinated palomilla, there's something…

    19 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    It’s a natural phenomenon where gravity is defied and so be it is logic, a point in a vast ocean where one wave does the unnatural by going against the grain. You can either attempt to understand it or you can simply go with the flow, appreciate it and feel blessed you were there to see it. Relax the mind and appreciate with the heart.     This is in essence what photographer and writer Philip Thurston does, capturing the seldom moments which most of us may never get to see, delivering them via beautifully taken photographs. This stunning piece is far more than just a black…

    Lawmakers in Nebraska repealed the state’s death penalty Wednesday, overriding the governor’s veto, according to multiple news sources. State Senators voted 30-19 to override Governor Pete Ricketts. Nebraska becomes the first traditionally conservative state to eliminate the death penalty since 1973, and 19th U.S. state (along with the District of Columbia) to ban capital punishment. From the Omaha World Herald: The measure replaces lethal injection with a maximum punishment of life in prison. It will take effect in 90 days, which would be late August or early September depending upon…

The Hollywood Reporter says that Choice Hotels and Payless ShoeSource have joined companies including General Mills and Walgreens who are no longer advertising on the reality series.

    If you are a web or API developer, programming code that uses an SQL database, this is for you. I’ve found a very different and useful way to structure code. It’s made such a big difference for me that I had to share it here. How things are Most web development — whether custom or using frameworks like Rails, Django, Laravel, Sinatra, Flask, and Symfony — tends to work the same way: At the core is a database, which is just the storage of data.

Wanting to make some big drastic change, just to ease the discomfort of uncertainty — that pain of living with an unknown future. You’re definitely in that place now. So here’s how I got out.

    I get emails from many people wanting to change or build their career. I always recommend the best book on the subject: “So Good They Can’t Ignore You” by Cal Newport. Here are a few of its best points: Forget passion and purpose Forget “follow your passion” or “find your true calling”. Stop thinking like that. Here’s why: Words like “passion” and “purpose” are dangerous because they sound huge and romantic. If you think you haven’t found your passion yet, you’re probably expecting it to be overwhelming — to hit you like lightning. Looking for your passion,…

    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. It’s a little bit like “nature vs nurture”: People in a fixed mindset believe you either are or aren’t good at something, based on your inherent nature, because it’s just who you are. People in a growth mindset believe anyone can be good at anything, because your abilities are 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…

Ariel said I should really accept and feel this pain, instead of moving on so fast like I always do. Each different perspective made me feel good for a while, then I’d fall back into the whirlpool of destructive thoughts. Whenever something’s…

    Before there was Danity Kane, there was Dream. P.Diddy’s OG girl group was formed in the early 2000’s, during pop music’s golden days, and quickly topped charts with their 2001 hits “He Loves You Not” and “This is Me.” The teenage lineup of Holly Arnstein, Diana Ortiz, Ashley Poole, and Melissa Schuman were poised for pop super-stardom, but like most pop acts of the ’00’s they quickly disbanded. Label mismanagement and internal politics ultimately shelved the group’s sophomore album, Reality, halting the group’s meteoric rise.

    Literally the only good use for Facebook at this point is to tell people not to use Facebook. I don't remember where I saw this line but it made me think of something that has been on my mind for some time. I stopped using Facebook almost a year ago. I didn't make a big deal out of it when I quit the service because I disabled my account, rather than deleting it - knowing that I might need it for future visa interviews (that excuse won't be necessary in a week hopefully, and then I'll probably permanently delete it).

    In this talk on incentives - Machiavelli's Mistake: Why Policies Designed for "Wicked Men" Fail - Samuel Bowles explains how incentivizing certain tasks, or fining certain activities, will decrease the moral reason for which people act. Bowles also talks about the Weightless Economy, in which standard economic practices no longer make any sense (because cost of reproduction is zero). This is at odds with the mindset that people should get paid for working on Free/Libre Open Source work.

    Julian Casablancas + the Voidz just released the video for “Human Sadness,” their 13-minute track from last September’s LP Tyranny (Cult Records). Directed by Warren Fu and Nicholaus Goossen, the video captures — in very fragmentary form — the metamorphosing American zeitgeist over the course of last forty years: Vietnam-like war scenes mashed up with protests for equal pay, vintage video game montages, drones, fast cars, Black Hawk helicopters, and lots of ripped jean vests. The Voidz are currently touring the Americas, playing Lollapallooza in Chile, Brazil, and…

Looking at the image above, you may have thought the cover a phoned-in minimalist illustration of the title. But it turns out it’s hard to get the full experience online: the slight texturing of the cherry red album sleeve/CD jacket is not a close-up shot of a velvet textile, but…

    Last weekend was, it seems, full of news of awesome but questionable “surprises.” As Flavorwire just reported, A$AP Rocky surprise-dropped his new album only a week before it was set to come out, a surprise so bafflingly small as to seem quite large. This weekend, Grimes also announced that she’d be “surprise” dropping her next album… but revealed that she’d be doing it in October. The five months advance notice seem to negate the nature of “surprise,” as does the fact that we actually know the month. But she very clearly stated her…

    Unknown Mortal Orchestra leader Rubin Nielson, whose new album chronicles his marriage’s accidental journey into polyamory. (photo by Dusdin Condren) New Zealand-born musician Ruban Nielson’s story starts typically enough: married-with-kids dude in a buzz band meets an intriguing young woman while touring abroad. But that’s when the tale becomes far less predictable, resulting in a relationship whose contours are about as unlikely as they come: a long-distance bond over email blossoms into accidental polyamory alongside Nielson’s wife, Jenny, before mutating into one (mostly)…

    So I been watching this Vlog series for a couple of months now - DAILY BUMPS - with Bryan, Missy, Ollie and Karma.... a family somewhere in the U.S. (don't exactly know which state).... they share a daily video of whatever happens in their family's life of about 15 minutes each day. The videos are tightly edited that gives the viewer a snapshot of "this is what happened today". They're quite an entertaining family as you get to see what is happening on their daily grind.For a while I had no idea what Bryan or Missy do for a living besides making video blogs.Bryan is a musician and he recently…

    Matthew Hickey
    27 May 2015 | 10:31 pm
    Our friends in Berlin-based DEATHS have returned with the clattering and percussive new single “Saviour.” As with their previous singles, it is smoldering, brooding, and beautifully unconventional. We think it’s also another success for the quickly rising collective. It’s coming at you courtesy of the excellent folks at Love By Mistake.

    London’s Espa moves in a unique direction on “Pray For Me” crafting a sound that trends more toward something in the vein of UK garage but with a jazzy-touch and seductive vocals. It’s the first single (produced by Hoskins) taken from her forthcoming EP called LG60 out on 29th June via The Others. Speaking about the track, she told to The Fader that it “is my way of expressing that desperate moment when you long to see the light, you long for an intangible force to save you from a situation that’s going nowhere. Although some might see this as a negative scenario,…

    LA’s Gallant has been one of our favorite new artists for awhile now (as you may recall, we tagged him as one of the 15 best new artists you need to watch early last year). Well, he’s recently returned with a a pair of new singles and (earlier today) a sparse cover of Foo Fighters’ “Learn To Fly.” The cover in particular is set upon a percussive, delicately constructed arrangement that truly allows the slick r&b crooner to showcase his range. It’s so hot you can almost feel the steam rising. Take a listen to it as well as his own new single “Open…

    This new single from Sweden’s Nottee (aka Rebekka “Nonno” Drougge) has been stuck on repeat for us over this long weekend. It’s built around a bubbling, percussive rhythm and thinly threaded synth accents. Clean and infectious, it’s particularly obsess-worthy.

    Neal

    How can my ten fingers handle all the keys on the sax? (Playing for one week) -Fori My response: On the diagram on the right, we see 23 keys. Your saxophone might be a tiny bit different, not having a high F# key, having a low A key, or potentially having a few other differences if it’s really old. But basically a saxophone has 23 keys. Some of your fingers are only responsible for pressing one key. Other fingers are responsible for multiple keys. You use 9 of your fingers to press keys on the saxophone. Your right thumb, underneath the thumb rest is exempt. Here is a diagram with your…

    How to sound more smooth? I own a tenor saxophone and its the first time I ever play a saxophone. (has been playing 3 days so far, plans on practicing 5/6 days a week) Every time I blow into the mouth piece I get the sound of the sax but as I change the notes/chords, the sound kind of breaks off or dies down, if not, sometimes it screeches. Even when I play low notes, every time I blow into it it sounds a little a high pitched. and if I blow normally I dont get any sound out of it. I don’t get any sound either when I blow slowly so that the volume of the saxophone drops a little. I have…

First thing would be to practice more. If you’re aware of your sound, it should get a little bit better every time you play. Practicing three days a week means you’re practicing less than half of the days in a week. Each day you don’t practice, you get a…

    In the past five years, the transition from print to digital has been accelerating. Old-school news magazines like Newsweek, and others, have given up the print ghost and have opted for digital only. It’s enormously expensive to publish a print product. Of course, there are the printing and delivery costs. It’s particularly costly when you pay contributors—writers, editors and photographer—for the content they produce (some local publications and broadcast entities get away with unpaid volunteers to produce content.

    We last heard Laura Burhenn’s Mynabirds with the 2012 studio LP Generals and an equally rousing live set at our SXSW show. Now she returns with a record said to be “steeped in break-up themes,” and — per this first glimpse at Lovers Know — she’s left some of the previous palette behind as well. Teaming up this time with producer/Black English frontman Bradley Hanan Carter, Burhenn enlists a kaleidoscopic bed of synths on “Semantics,” a buoyant and undeniably catchy bit of post-romance transcendence. Promising stuff indeed; hear it…

    Kristian Matsson starts out in familiar territory on this one, the title track to The Tallest Man On Earth’s next album, Dark Bird Is Home. “Sagres” felt like a “Song For Zula”-esque turn toward echo and synth-washed sounds, but the Swedish troubadour goes back inward this round. Until the coda, that is: an unexpected, jubilant rush that makes the previous solo-acoustic minutes feel like a contemplative run-up toward some kind of assured transcendence. Underneath any such pomp and circumstance, though, is a fine bit of indelible melody from the…

    Even without knowing the album’s unabashed bohemian mission statement, words like “celestial” spring to mind on these tracks from Portland’s Johanna Warren. But they also conjure up something more personal and haunting than what she calls a dedication to the phases of the moon. “Figure 8,” “True Colors,” and “Less Traveled” aim inward as much as they pull from the heavens, recalling the intimacy of Nick Drake, Sibylle Baier, and Sam Beam, as much as broader-minded luminaries like Joni Mitchell and a long list of British…

  • Skiffle Music: How a Craze for Homemade Music Gave Birth to the British Invasion

    Megatrax
    18 May 2015 | 1:28 pm
    In 1956, the hottest performer in Great Britain’s pop music scene was a transplanted banjo player from Scotland named Lonnie Donegan. His hit recording, a rendition of American folk singer Lead Belly’s “Rock Island Line,” triggered a tidal wave of amateur and semi-professional groups playing what was known as “skiffle” music – American folk, blues, and country tunes played on homemade guitars, washboards, and basses made from old tea chests. For the next two years, the skiffle craze, as it came to be known, enveloped Britain, giving rise to many of the rock groups that would…
  • Do I Really Need a Custom Track?

    Megatrax
    11 May 2015 | 12:52 pm
    This question invariably gets asked when a person is considering commissioning a custom piece of music. You’ve gone back and forth listening to dozens (at least) of production tracks, maybe even considered a commercial piece of music (until you find out the licensing fees from the publisher and record label), and are beginning to think about having something created. Logically answering that question depends on a few factors. Budget and usage are the main drivers. Production music cues can be spectacular and will be a fraction of the cost of a custom track. However, these cues can not be…
  • Cary Ginell asks: Television Theme Songs– Where Did They Go?

    21 Apr 2015 | 1:03 pm
    “Here’s a story…of a lovely lady.” “Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip” “Boy, the way Glenn Miller played” “Come and listen to a story ’bout a man named Jed” “Da-da-da-dum, <snap, snap>” “Space…the final frontier.” Sound familiar? Those words, and many others, are forever embedded in the brains of baby boomers and viewers of retro TV cable channels because they represent the days when television theme songs were an expected and essential part of the entertainment world. If you think it’s hard to write a hit song, try…

    SAV008, Ascension, is an intense, shockingly emotional, multi-section hybrid trailer-focused release that features an 80-piece orchestra. Packed with massive percussion, sound design and choir, this new release from Sound Adventures is the latest trailer triumph from composer and producer Timo Spekkens. Timo graciously made time to talk to us about this release, and here’s what he had to say: Ascension was recorded partly in Budapest.

We haven’t heard new tunes from the band since their 2010 self-titled album, which was released after the group abruptly went into hiatus in 2009. Daughters played a pair of reunion shows in Pawtucket, RI in late 2013, which spawned numerous rumors that the band…

Everyone is already a singer of course, but it’s always possible to learn how to sing better.Here are four simple but powerful ideas that will help you be a better singer, whether you sing in a choir or a band or are a soloist.I’ve written many articles about how you can learn to sing or how to be a better singer (I’ll put links at the bottom of this post if you want to find out more). But in this post I want to look at four really simple ideas that I believe are the key to helping you sing better.Each of these ideas may seem very…

    Most choirs charge their singers to be a member (‘subs’). The amount can vary a lot from choir to choir.What’s the best way to decide how much to charge your singers? Let’s look at some of the issues that can help you fix a suitable rate.There are basically four kinds of choir. Choirs thatare funded by grants are hosted by organisations don’t cost anything to run are entirely self-funded The first kind of choir may or may not have all its costs covered by the grant, or might have funding for a fixed period of time so that at some point singers may have to be charged.The second kind…

  • The challenges of running a drop-in singing group (and why you shouldn’t start one)

    4 May 2015 | 2:00 am

People can drop in on any session they want, there is no commitment and no signing up for a ‘season’It’s a nice idea: no commitment, no pressure, all very fun, sociable and informal. But there are plenty of good reasons why groups like this are hard to sustain. Here are ten of them.Most choirs and singing groups:meet on a regular basis (usually weekly); have a rehearsal of between one and two hours; have a core of members who attend for many years; run in blocks of sessions (called ‘seasons’ or ‘terms’); ask singers to commit to a…

It was 2001, and Kurt Masur - who began the tradition in 1992 as a gift to the people of New York - led the Phil in Sofia Gubaidulina's dark and eerie Two Paths (1998), featuring NY Phil violists Cynthia Phelps and Rebecca Young. That was followed by the most astonishing performance of Bruckner's 4th symphony that I have ever heard, with Bruckner's grand crescendos echoing throughout the imposing, inspiring interior.

Not because it’s a day off for you but because you’re finally happy. You and Mother’s Days don’t mix.

Not only was it my first time working semi-professionally, it was my first time directing a music video, let alone two. One of the artists that I directed was Lyric Nicole, a young neo-soul singer with a fantastic voice and beautiful music under the Me 2 Entertainment label. I may be biased in my choice of words but you should check her out yourself. I won’t go into more detail about my times directing since that would be another, much longer piece.

    SoSoActive.com The Harry Potter series has been around for almost two decades and it is still one of the most beloved series ever to be created. For me, the books—and then the movies—were a huge part of my childhood. I grew up with Harry. His life was one I could venture into with a turn of a page, immersing myself into a whole other world that was not my own. When a new Harry Potter book came out, I couldn’t contain my excitement. I chose not to sleep until I finished the newest installment in the series. The books became a part of me; Harry’s story was my story. Well, minus the…

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

For those willing to pay the price to catch the midnight sun, polar nights, northern lights, arctic tundras, grand mountain tops and colourful grass-roofed houses, it’s undeniably worth it. This is a land of contrasts, from the soft and gentle to the harsh and untamed.

    My first exposure to Rush was sometime in 77’ or 78’. I saw the band on Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert which was a Saturday night ritual in those days. I was 13 years old and in those days discovering new bands was a hit and miss proposition. With no internet, no file sharing or no MTV hitting on a cool new band was strictly word of mouth or just plain dumb luck. Don announced the band and they first played “A Farewell to Kings” and then launched into “Xanadu”. Little did I know at that exact moment I was being presented with a virtual Pandora’s Box of musical wonders. I know…

    Madame Recamier is a creative songwriter whose amorous lyrics tend to invoke a sense of wistfulness or nostalgia thanks to her use of minor melodies.  Her music videos maintain this balance of dark love through artistic interpretations of the lyrics; “Me Marcho A La Guerra” (“I’m Off To War”), as an example, showcases dagger-wielding dancers in the desert and a male actor (the love interest) who reminds me of the horse king Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones.  Driven by love, her lyrics move forward to the steady military drums, and seek…

The contrast we both hear and see is a symbol of Niko’s move from the popular Latin club scene to an underground movement that is trying to prove music can have a positive faith-based message while remaining danceable and fun.  In some ways, this shift has given Niko more freedom than…
  • Becky G – Can’t Stop Dancin’

    13 Dec 2014 | 7:29 pm
    I’ve heard some talk of Becky G over the past year, but never really took the time to hear her music.  Her latest soca-infused pop single “Don’t Stop Dancin’” is definitely playlist-worthy and marks her introduction to the Spanglish Noise blog.  It’s easy to compare Becky G to J Lo if you heard her remake to Jenny From The Block  (approved by Jennifer Lopez of course), but Becky is admittedly a bit girly in personality (she’s only 17), while J Lo rose into music with  more of a bad girl Bronx sound.  That’s not to say that Becky…

It’s a dreamy indie pop tune, 70’s inspired with wonderful warm and lush tones, driven along by a great melodic bass line. The female/male doubled lead vocals give the song depth, and some really nice harmonies, especially in the chorus. The violin throughout adds an extra element, almost an Indian feel, especially in the intro. Close My Eyes is not trying to push any songwriting boundaries, but music doesn’t always have to. This is a song that will leave you humming the…

    Winters Island’s new track ‘Ares’ has a real sense of intrigue about it. A gradual build up of layeredpiano, synth and bass are fused with front man Andy Trimmer’s passionate and assertive tones early on and has you wondering which direction this is headed for in terms of genre. Trimmer’s voice has a likeness to that of Samuel T. Herring’s of similarly named Future Islands, perhaps less harsh and with more of a pop feel. However, it’s the lyrics to this track that stand out and give it a darker side. Trimmer proclaims he’s ‘a man that can’t be saved’ as the track turns…

Late 2013 saw the release of his debut album Letters We Told. Self-recorded, the album is full of 60’s and 70’s inspired folk tunes, based around Woodward’s softly spoken vocals and acoustic guitar. Whilst the songs are a nod to a previous era, the production is certainly not, it is a wonderfully recorded album, with clean and crisp sounds. Growing up…

I have a few older friends who told me they had already started to live adult lives with a spouse and children. Of course, so many of you reading out there were not even born until several years later. Nevertheless, the music created during that year, and throughout the 1980’s continues to thrive, even for those who were not in existence at inception. One of the many standout stars of the era most definitely was Pat Benatar. During…

  • Inspiration of Life

    Edward Reid
    3 May 2015 | 1:15 pm
    Syleena JohnsonIf you ask an artist from where he or she draw inspiration, most of the time they will point toward life experience. If you need to write about something, prose or poetry, the best place to find inspiration is life itself. The majority of artists, and those who enjoy art, feel art imitates life. However, Oscar Wilde, opined in his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that, "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life". To go further, he stated "what is found in life and nature is not what is really there, but is that which artists have taught people to find there, through art".

We all struggle and sometimes fight against change for years, then when it comes and we feel we have adapted, we are faced with the possibility of making more changes. Some say that change is good for everyone. That might be true in some cases but not when a negative change comes into our lives. Good changes are almost always associated with personal growth.

    Most musicians perform better with a great mix and headphones that work perfectly. Here's an excerpt from The Recording Engineer's Handbook 3rd edition that provides 4 tips for getting those headphones session-ready."Perhaps the greatest detriment to a session running smoothly is the inability for players to hear themselves comfortably in the headphones. This is one of the reasons that veteran engineers spend so much time and attention to the cue mix and the phones themselves. In fact, a sure sign of an inexperienced engineer is treating the headphones and cue mix as an afterthought instead…

The song featured The Wrecking Crew on the backing track, and background vocals that included Cher and The Blossoms (with Darlene Love). Here are some things to check out.1. The track is swimming in reverb, but that was the Spector sound. Gold Star Recording had a unique live chamber that had a frequency response that was just right for packing on a lot of verb without getting in the way.2. Everything was recorded on the same track.

  • The Bats Pajamas- Witch Way + TV Sheets Video

    20 May 2015 | 8:00 am
    Toronto "witch punk" trio The Bats Pajamas are set to release their new album, No Hello, on cassette and digi formats May 26th via Fleeting Youth Records. The first taste of the upcoming record, “Wrong House,” showed us the grunge-y side of TBP with its crumbling guitars and a loose rhythm, sounding as dark and disheveled as punk rock would be after it’s been lost and roaming the streets for months without a home. But it's the next track that fully embodies what "witch punk" is all about. With hard chugging guitars that churn, spin, and spit like bewitched washing machines,…

    18 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    In the bleak sonic landscape that has become associated with the Boston underground, Vundabar are an anomaly. Rather than wallow in minor chord fury and noise soaked post-punk, the young Boston trio have opted for something brighter and catchier, using their penchant for complex melodies and soaring harmonies to create an all shimmering beast of bizarre pop splendor. The band are excited to share "Chop," the first single from their upcoming sophomore album Gawk. Due out via the band's own Gawk Records on July 24th, "Chop," the album's opening track, sets the tone for the album,…

  • Video: Giant Sand- Transponder

    17 May 2015 | 7:52 pm
    Stereogum: Describing the music of Howe Gelb as “alt-country” doesn’t do justice to the immense, genre-spanning catalogue that he’s amassed over his band Giant Sand’s 30 years in existence. True, Gelb has put out several great records within the roots-rock and folk idioms, working with artists from Neko Case and Juliana Hatfield to PJ Harvey and Steve Wynn. But he’s also released jazz, gospel, and Spanish guitar albums, proving himself to be as prolific as he is undefinable. And he’s still at it, with a new record entitled Heartbreak Pass out this week.

There's a heated underlying political message in their songs, but their unbridled energy and keen sense of melody make their unrest accessible.Grab it hereDaily Ritual: S/T LP by sabotagerecords

From its menacing intro ‘Virgin Mary’ unravels into a captivating, lo-fi concoction of fuzzed out guitar-lines, brutal synths & heated howls from front-woman Natalie Hoffmann. And not surprising with half of the track recorded on a simple four-track in the bands practice room, the production is rawer than a bad breakup.

  • ALBUM REVIEW : Son Lux – ‘Bones’

    Marc Simonsson
    26 May 2015 | 12:46 pm
    This ‘Son Lux’ review was written by Marc Simonsson, a GIGsoup contributor. Every so often you come across a musician that transcends the definition of what it is to produce an album, a phonograph record containing several musical selections. In his latest album, titled ‘Bones’, Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott) has expounded any rules or confinements which may restrict a musician ordinarily – he has not simply created a musical album, he has created a piece of art. Having recently signed for Glassnote Records, Son Lux’s creation is a master stroke in modern musical creativity.
  • EP REVIEW : Yak – ‘Plastic People’

    Nick Roseblade
    26 May 2015 | 11:07 am
    This ‘Yak’ review was written by Nick Roseblade, a GIGsoup contributor. London based ‘Yak’ have been creating a stir since they first emerged on London’s live scene last year. Since then they’ve released the excellent ‘Hungry Heart’ single, destroyed audiences wherever they’ve played. In truth they’ve started generate the kind of mythology that all bands need to separate them from the also-rans. You know stuff like jamming with ‘Thurston Moore’, hanging out with ‘Courtney Taylor’ in Portland, selling furniture to ‘Jason Pearce’ and having ‘John…
  • ALBUM REVIEW : The Vaccines – ‘English Graffiti’

    Gareth Bryant
    26 May 2015 | 10:51 am
    This ‘Vaccines’ article was written by ‘Gareth Bryant’, a GIGsoup contributer. Over the past five years, ‘The Vaccines’ have captured the hearts of teenage indie girls and sober old music fans alike. Their brand of energetic indie guitar pop is guaranteed to bring anybody to the dance floor for a brief moment of innocence and childlike abandon. Following 2012’s sophomore release ‘Come of Age’, which spawned the hit single, “Teenage Icon”, the group are back with a third album that will certainly surprise nobody. Most bands tend to stick to their…

    Alex Whitaker
    26 May 2015 | 10:24 am
    This ‘Breakage’ review was written by Alex Whitaker, a GIGsoup contributor. ‘Breakage’, AKA James Boyle, returns with his third studio album ‘When the Night Comes’– his first LP since 2010’s ‘Foundation’. Boyle has truly established himself as one of the most complete producers of his generation and this record certainly exemplifies the UK Bass heavyweight’s talents in all its glory. Whether it be Dub(step), DnB, breakbeats, 120bpm or something altogether more lo-fi, Boyle has honed in on a distinctive and coherent sound that spreads across the UK Bass scene. The…

Check out her thoughts below!The first time I ever heard of Milky Chance was back in June of 2014 when “Stolen Dance” came on 91.9 WFPK here in Louisville (which is, by the way, the best radio station ever… but I digress).

Needless to say, it was a romantic and fortuituous moment for me that I had to share.Take a listen first to Miguel's original that is a sex dream in and of itself and then somehow gets even better with the addition of DC rapper Wale. And then enjoy Scavenger Hunt's cover, which is a bit more subdued yet still super sexy with female vocals. Their cover almost sounds like the soundtrack to a romantic montage in a Patrick…

  • I got my tooth pulled out, but still saw Hiatus Kaiyote perform live

    13 May 2015 | 7:05 am
    Yes, you read it right! I had my tooth pulled out, but that didn't stop me from seeing one of my favorite soul bands, Hiatus Kayiote last week. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have saw my picture of my ticket to the Hiatus Kaiyote show at the Underground Arts in Philly on May 8, 2015! I woke up on May 8 to excruciating tooth pain (lower right molar) that resulted in me getting my tooth removed (it was infected, it had to go). While on my nova-cane high, I pondered if I was still in good shape to go to the concert. Most would rush to conclusion and say no, but I had to sleep on…
  • New RnB music- ALESSIA is Here

    5 May 2015 | 7:21 am
    While checking new releases on Spotify, I came across a track from Alessia Cara, better know simply as ALESSIA (Def Jam latest recording artist) and I feel in love with the R&B track title Here! Alessia's debut track Here goes against grain of the typical party "let's go crazy and get high" track, Wise beyond her years, the Ontario Canada native sings about being anti-social pessimist and not a fan of the party scene filled with the girl that is gossiping about her friends or the boy in the corner throwing up!Check out Here below and share your thoughts on this R&B track!

    The Department Of Justice is rumored to be looking into Apple’s business practices concerning streaming music. Why would the DOJ be investigating? According to The Verge, Apple has been pushing the music labels to remove the free tier from streaming services. As Spotify negotiates to renew their licenses with music labels, Apple is lobbying music labels to not include a license for a free music tier anymore. If successful, this would greatly reduce the competition when Apple releases the new Beats Music. To date, Spotify is the most successful streaming service with 60 million users. 15…

The speculation is that Apple will release their music streaming service, which is based on Beats Music, in June. Assuming subscription only, with no ad-supported tier, European regulators are “said to be concerned that the company will use its size, relationships and influence to persuade labels to abandon free, ad-supported services such as Spotify, which depend on licenses with music companies for their catalogues.” Spotify argues that its free ad-supported…

This, their 5th album, will see the band revisit the simplicity at the start of their decade-long career, “with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role”. As the band put it beautifully: “here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.” “For us, ‘Depression Cherry’ is a colour, a place, a…

    Repetition is the formula for success. A good method is also important, but the key is long term sustained practice. There is no easy trick or bullshit formula. 30 minutes every day is better than 5 hours once a week. What to do:1 - Learn first how to master the basic CHORDS2 - Listen to a lot of music,  your favorite genre3 - Start experimenting with different strumming approaches4 - Read good books. Invest money otherwise you won't be motivated enough to apply the method, I know this from experience. Personally, I did not buy books but I spent a lot of money on live lessons in my…

The only key I've found to become really good at something without getting fuckin' bored, is to DIFFERENTIATE the actions that I repeat. Which means putting them on rotation.Sometimes I hate playing the guitar, sometimes I love it. How's that? I don't know. The actuality is that I've been playing it for 15 years so yeah, I'd say I've been pretty consistent. Same for singing.

    Rhythm Guitar always preceeds lead guitar. It is a common issue for beginners to focus on lead guitar without knowing how to strum.Yep, some people can play a bit of a solo. A small piece of it. Maybe they can play the correct notes. But when they are with a group of people and they are asked to "play something", they just don't know what to do. Because no one cares about listening to a "solo" which is completely out of context.Rhythm Guitar always preceeds lead guitar.

    Andy Barnes
    13 May 2015 | 2:17 am
    Online singing lessons have become quite popular over the last decade, with many different techniques and singing methods available as downloadable or stream-able content. With the explosion of Skype and other technologies, you can even do coaching style lessons with people in different countries. As online singing lessons have become quite popular, I wanted to take the time to explore some of the key advantages and disadvantages of the format, and see how they compare with face 2 face singing lessons.

  • What Does It Mean To Learn To Sing Naturally?

    Andy Barnes
    21 Apr 2015 | 3:21 am
    What does it mean to learn to sing naturally? It’s a great question for one, but it also raises another question – why would you want to sing naturally, and what happens if you don’t? Also if you can sing naturally, then you also must be able to sing unnaturally as well! The word “naturally” is used in many ways to convey something good, and in singing it is no different. If you can learn to sing naturally, then you should enjoy a lifetime of singing. You don’t have to lose your voice or have your range reduced as you get older. In this article, I want to…
  • 3 Things I Disagree With Speech Level Singing About

    Andy Barnes
    31 Mar 2015 | 3:16 am
    Speech level singing, if you haven’t heard of it, is a technique that teaches that singing should be as natural and easy as speaking. Now, I think we can all agree that speaking is a natural and easy thing to do, and while I do believe that you can sing freely and easily, there are some things about singing that differ greatly to speaking, which we will explore later on. While speech level singing has certainly been around for a while (at least 30 years), and there is no doubt it has benefited many people, there are gaps in speech level singing itself that I would like to address in…
  • 5 Tips To Blitz Your Audition For The Voice

    We have all heard of the TV show “The Voice”, with the novel idea of having the judges only listen to the voice during the audition while not being able to see the contestant. Even though there are several steps that a singer will need to take to just be able to sing for a blind audition, in this article I want to share 5 tips that I believe will help you to blitz the actual blind audition, whether you are chosen or not. There are many factors on why some singers are chosen and others are not. I have seen some very good singers with great voices and vocal technique get rejected in…

    Did you know that learning to sing does not need to take up hours a day? Did you also know that you can actually improve if you practice the right things for 15 minutes a day? If you didn’t, then I hope you find this as good news.

    Last month, Passion Pit released their third album, Kindred. And to keep their Australian fans happy, they’ve announced an east coast tour this August. Kindred is the perfect example of Passion Pit’s uplifting blend of indie pop, bursting with twists and turns that leave listeners dizzy with rapture. Hidden in this euphoria is the contrasting darkness of Angelakos’ lyrics, which touch on themes such as depression and familial strife, proving there is more to Passion Pit’s music than its shiny, upbeat pop exterior suggests. The highly addictive single Lifted Up (1985) provides…

It grabbed both PNKSLM Recordings (home to Les Big Byrd, Sudakistan, HOLY, Lucern Raze) and Beech Coma by the balls. What ensued was a hi octane bidding war that nearly came to blows.

It thunders, gallops, moans, and thrusts its way though, barreling everything out of its way. Then Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor covered it with Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O, and a more sultry beast was born. The pace remained hi octane, but now it was sleeker, more dangerous.

The first track to be gleaned from the record is the title track, and it is a jittery blast of new wave except with lots and lots of guitars. The whole enterprise is full of more energy than Tony Montana on a visit to Colombia, and quickly jumps from musical idea to musical idea like a child with ADD in a music shop. In short, there are plenty of poptastic melodies here for fans of bis, but all in all Batteries is far rougher around the edges. We’ve been…

    On a sublime Thursday evening we headed on over to Durham Performing Arts Center to catch the ethereal sounds of Moses Sumney and Sufjan Stevens. Attendees queued up and filed into the theatre, ready for the show, but we didn't know quite what to expect. Moses Sumney brings a relaxed, soulful sound to the table, while Sufjan Stevens has done everything from electronica to orchestral maneuvers on a number of instruments. Based on what we heard before the show, we were just as eager as the fans for this performance.Moses Sumney [♫♫♫♫♫] took the stage, face painted with a broad smile,…

    Brad Lazarus
    11 May 2015 | 8:48 am
    One of the biggest challenges for most cover bands is how to not look and sound like every other band out there. It's very easy to fall into 'The Cover Band Commodization Trap'. When you do, you leave your prospective client with no other reason to make their decision on apart from what you cost. That’s bad news for you. Here’s how to overcome the problem and beat your competition to the booking EVEN when you’re more expensive.

We started our discussion defining terms like the sovereignty of God, the human condition and slavery & bondage. As we explored the topic he formulated some good points about being born in sin he stated “Due to us being born in sin, it’s not our fault”. He explained when someone is in bondage they are chained to it, they are forced to do its will, our minds in-turn have no other options but to choice it.

    26 May 2015 | 12:59 pm
    I spend a lot of time studying what is going on in the music licensing world. It's very important. Not only as a way to scout new opportunities, but to evaluate trends and stay ahead of the game. I've seen a lot of debate of the Non-Exclusive vs Exclusive model, and I have noticed there is a definite shift occurring. The non-exclusive model of music licensing appears to be a very sweet deal for musicians, allowing them to place music in multiple markets, and not having all of their financial eggs in one basket.As you are starting the journey of commercial music production, generally…

    Michael Musco
    23 May 2015 | 9:58 am
    One thing I've noticed over the years is a lot of musicians, and probably just people in general, want to know how to go from just starting to overnight success. I don't think that is a realistic goal. Their might be like less then one percent of people that had an experience like that, but that is far from ordinary. People have the misconception that anyone that is having success with their music is somehow just lucky, or got some break that they will never get. When I hear logic like that my first reaction is always...bullshit.It's easy to see the end result of all the hard work someone has…

    No one can deny that the music industry is evolving, and that is a normal part of business. As technology changes what worked in the past doesn't always mean it will work in the future. The people that are truly successful at forecasting those changes and work with them have a far better shot at having a bright future. Right now, I believe that the music industry is going through some changes, but that isn't a bad thing. In fact I believe it's a great thing and their are so many emerging opportunities for musicians that just didn't exist in the past.With those opportunities come questions. In…

    Success in the music business is a marathon, not a sprint. It takes a lot of perseverance, determination, and drive to be successful. That is my experience at least. I like to think of the music industry as a pyramid. Every musician has had to start from the bottom and work their way up. Sometimes it seems like some musician can scale that pyramid like a rocket, and others it takes a lot longer. At the base of the pyramid it's huge and filled with every starting musician. Anyone that has ever played in a band, recorded a track, performed, ect, and basically anyone that wants to do anything in…

    After several successful outings in Europe, ID&T (the company behind Tomorrowland, Sensation and many other prominent EDM events/festivals), decided to bring Mysteryland to the US last year. Despite a strong effort by the organizers to capture the spirit of its European counterpart, it was ultimately met with a fair bit of criticism. Not one to be deterred, ID&T brought back Mysteryland USA once again in a new and improved state, hoping to give those in attendance an unforgettable Memorial Day Weekend. Competition was certainly tough, with Counterpoint, EDC New York, Movement Detroit…

    It’s hard to think of a force in the entertainment industry that’s been as pervasive as electronic dance music has been over the past several years. The meteoric growth of festivals coupled with the proliferation of new technologies like music streaming services created a perfect storm that made the musical movement a ubiquitous part of the millennial experience, and business moguls the world over sought to cash in. If leading research can be counted on, though, the rate of growth of the industry could finally be slowing down. The business reports presented by…

    TWFOMO continues today as the organizers of TomorrowWorld have announced more additions to the festival’s third annual installment. The most recent batch of names to grace the official lineup are Martin Garrix, Showtek and Excision. Following news of Get Real, Flux Pavilion and Adventure Club’s additions to the roster, these new names provide balanced reinforcements to the representation of big room house and bass music at the festival and thus far, the lineup is definitely looking pretty appealing.

    3.4NEN RATINGNow. I have something to admit. I am not an Oasis fan. I know, I know, but maybe you can see why I was hesitant to give ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ a listen. ‘It’ll just be Oasis without Liam’ etc. But, I’ll admit it, I was wrong. ‘Chasing Yesterday’ is an absolutely cracking album. I was hooked on the first song on the album, ‘Riverman’. Of course there’s the Oasis references (‘The Girl With X-Ray Eyes’ could be taken straight off an album), but there’s also threads of Santana…

Death By Toaster are in the process of releasing a series of EPs – four to be exact. ‘That’s Life’, ‘No Gravity’, ‘One is Two’ and the upcoming ‘Wasting Minds’ out on 1 June. “We wanted to focus on three songs at a…

    Dreampop duo Beach House, Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, have announced their next album ‘Depression Cherry’ will be out in August. This, their 5th album, will see the band revisit the simplicity at the start of their decade-long career, “with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role”. As the band put it beautifully: “here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.” “For us, ‘Depression Cherry’ is a colour, a place, a…

There’s a Radox-worthy panpipe opening, tuneful synth, smatterings of hip-melting reggae, divine layered vocal and unlimited singalong potential.

  • More Facebook (and Twitter) Mistakes

    The Big Dog
    23 May 2015 | 2:30 am
    Last time we spoke about fake Facebook fans. Today I want to look at some other mistakes people make on social media. Don’t Just Promote Engage with people. It’s no good just posting the news that your new CD is available 500 times. By all means post it more than once as many people will miss it (especially on Twitter – a very live platform). But be sure to post lots of other stuff too; fun stuff; entertaining stuff; useful stuff. A good guide is a maximum of one promo post for every 4 other posts. Not Posting Regularly You need to post every day, ideally at the same times of day.

    There are many services out there who will try to sell you Facebook Likes. You pay them, X amount of money and they get Y people to click like on your page and suddenly your numbers look great. But most of these likes are from dummy accounts which no one ever uses and exist purely to give paid for likes. There are a number of reasons why this is a bad move. Firstly, it’s costing you money which could easily be better spent. Secondly, many in the industry are wise to the tactic and will look at how many of those people actually engage. Do they comment, do they like individual posts, do they…

There are of course many ways to make contacts but there is no substitute for the personal touch. So how can you meet the people you need to meet face-to-face? The easiest way is seminars and networking events. Some organisations which put on such events in the UK are BASCA, AIM, MPG, MMF and City Showcase (see below for contact details).

The most important factor is the rotation speed. The faster the disc rotates the faster it is possible to access the information on them. They vary in speed from 5,400 RPM for laptops to 10,000 RPM. 7200 is a common and a good compromise.

  • The Real Book, Vol. 1

    27 May 2015 | 11:40 am
    Ever play jazz? Jazz ensemble in high school maybe? Then you’ve likely encountered The Real Book. Wikipedia backgrounds: An underground series of books transcribed and collated by students at Berklee College of Music during the 1970s.It got its name to distinguish it from the widely available fake books which printed only chords and lyrics of standard songs, to avoid copyright issues. The Real Book included melody lines, thus infringing music copyright, and the older versions were pirated – that is unlicensed – publications that paid no royalties to song authors. In 2004,…
  • Life on Mars

    22 May 2015 | 10:50 am
    It’s a book, it’s a playlist: The Martian, by Andy Weir, in which an astronaut is mistakenly left alone on Mars to fend for himself and has to summon all his MacGyver/Castaway-ish/sarcastic-quipping powers to survive sol after sol on the barren Red Planet. During down time (when, say, the H2 oxidizer has to replenish the zineadrine tanks, or something), he’s stuck with his once-fellow astronauts’ left behind media libraries. Which means ’70s TV and a lifetime’s supply of disco, of which he is not fond. There’s no author’s playlist for the title,…

    It’s a movie, it’s a playlist. Just watched “Jersey Boys” in pieces on cable. Once you settle in to not expecting the Scorcese movie it could’ve been, there’s amusement to be had there. The moment the band comes up with its name (via a bowling alley sign)…or with the title “Big Girls Don’t Cry” (watching TV)…that kind of stuff. As with just about any music bio, there’s more bio than music in this one, but so it goes. Ears-up folks may be irked by the Broadway-orchestra-pit backing tracks throughout and find themselves…
  • Sounds Familiar: Chuck Berry v. The Beatles

    New post series: Sounds Familiar. Homages, rip-offs, lawsuits, and the songs that have lived to tell. Exhibit A: Chuck Berry’s “You Can’t Catch Me” and some Beatles tune you may know. From Wikipedia: In 1973, “Come Together” was the subject of a lawsuit brought against Lennon by Big Seven Music Corp. (owned by Morris Levy) who was the publisher of Chuck Berry‘s “You Can’t Catch Me.” Levy contended that it sounded similar musically to Berry’s original and shared some lyrics (Lennon sang “Here come ol’ flattop, he…

  • Gov’t Mule junto a John Scofield en “Sco Mule”

    Manu Herrera
    28 May 2015 | 2:00 am
    por Manu Herrera GOV’T MULE (USA) DISCO: Sco-Mule (2014) TEMAS: 11 WEB: http://mule.net Quiero verlo! ¿Qué podemos esperar si unimos a una banda con la solera de Gov’t Mule con el lenguaje avanzado de un instrumentista como John Scofield? Pues es justamente lo que ofrece este trabajo, titulado “Sco-Mule”. Una mezcla entre la solidez de una gran grupo, que surgió como proyecto paralelo de unos renovados Allman Brothers, y el discurso jazzero de uno de los guitarristas que más ha contribuido a expandir las fronteras de este género en los últimos tiempos. Temas llenos de
