    The New York Daily News has reported that Joe Cocker has died at the age of 70. His long-time agent, Barrie Marshall confirmed the news earlier today, indicating he had died at his home in Colorado. The cause of death is said to be lung cancer. Cocker scored his first hit single in 1968 with his cover of The Beatles' 'With a Little Help from My Friends' that went straight to No. 1 on the charts, but he is perhaps best remembered for the 1975 smash hit, 'You Are So Beautiful' considered by many to be his signature song. Cocker went on to score a number of other hits throughout the 70s and 80s…

Before all that though, there were some other acts to get everyone going. First out of the blocks were Carniflex. They played to a mostly static crowd and never really seemed to get those assembled worked up enough to get much movement out of them. With that said, Carniflex are heavy as fuck; if you like blast beats accompanied by some formidable looking men…

    Damen Norton
    21 Dec 2014 | 8:48 am
    Will Ferrell is the funniest comedian/actor of this generation, without question.  Over the last 15 years, Ferrell has translated a successful run on NBC’s Saturday Night Live into one of the most enduring and lucrative comedy empires of all time.  He’s a force of nature – a fearless funnyman with a proclivity for the absurd, always seeking out projects that play to his strengths as something of a comedic wunderkind.  On the other side of that, Kevin Hart is, arguably, the most successful stand-up comic in the business.  A self-made millionaire, Hart turned his…

    I really love when funny people – or people who are mostly known for doing funny projects – decide to switch gears and try something a little more serious.  Over the years, it has been a pretty common scenario.  Jamie Foxx turned things around when he took the lead role in Taylor Hackford’s Ray, which earned the stand-up comedian an Academy Award and made him one of the biggest stars in the world.  Jim Carrey also took a turn for Peter Weir’s The Truman Show, and later on in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.  Seth Rogen has even dabbled in dramatic fare,…

    Throughout the history of cinema, there have been several director/actor or director/actress relationships.  Sometimes a filmmaker finds a comrade in the begrudging process of making a movie, and that partnership can last for decades.  Martin Scorsese has had two muses in the forms of Robert DeNiro and Leonardo DiCaprio.  George Lucas and Harrison Ford are cinematic soul mates.  Quentin Tarantino often works with the great Uma Thurman.  When it comes to Steven Spielberg, the right man for the job is almost always Tom Hanks.  The two have worked together on three previous films…

    Some stars seem like they were born to be in show business.  They begin young, slowly building up enough acclaim that when they hit their stride, they thrive.  A perfect example of that notion is Natalie Portman.  After a scene-stealing performance at the age of 13 in Luc Besson’s The Professional, Portman started taking on small roles in heavy dramas like Michael Mann’s Heat and smaller films with big directors like Woody Allen’s Everyone Says I Love You.  But, most would argue that she really started turning heads and getting big-time recognition after her role…

But still, bringing brothers Óskar and Ómar Guðjónsson (saxophone and guitar respectively), Davíð Þór Jónsson (organ and piano) and Magnús Trygvason Eliassen (percussion) together into one room to record with us has taken a few years, so what better place than the reverent space of the Free Church in…

  • Download An Amazing New Delay Effect for Free from Native Instruments

    Peter Kirn
    22 Dec 2014 | 8:04 am
    Miracle on Schlesische Straße? Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind. It also means that Native Instruments is giving away a delay effect for free before it goes on sale at full retail – so now’s the time to grab it. (There’s also a download voucher, some Remix Sets, and a gear giveaway, but it’s the delay that I think rises to the level of newsworthy.) The thing is, delays are very often as useful if not more indispensable than reverbs – whether it’s dark, dubby techno you’re producing or experimental soundscapes. And this one…
  • djay Pro for Mac: A Serious DJ App with Spotify Integration, US$49

    Peter Kirn
    18 Dec 2014 | 8:55 am
    A full-featured DJ app can be yours for fifty bucks, and it can stream the songs you don’t have right off Spotify. djay Pro is here, and with it and a new generation of contenders come some serious shifts in digital DJing. Algoriddim have been making user-friendly DJ apps for a while. That started with a beginner-friendly Mac app, but extended to iOS and the until-recently-neglected Android platform (which is now at last fairly viable for mobile DJing). djay’s ease of use was already enough to make it appeal to casual DJs. Then, in May, Algoriddim pulled an ace out of their sleeve…
  • Finally, Your Pocket Gets a Perfect Drum Synth: Elastic Drums for iPhone

    Peter Kirn
    18 Dec 2014 | 4:09 am
    Some people are addicted to flinging birds at stacks of things until those stacks fall over. Or they use spare moments to flick through thumbnails of single people who they’ll never meet. Or they read random 140-character texts about stuff from angry folks, yelling at each other. Not you. You are addicted to drums. And not just any drums. You want electronic drums, drums you can tweak and dial – genuine synthesizers, grooving. Just playing back the sound of an 808 isn’t going to cut it. If you’re sandwiched in coach class, your knees pressed against the seat in front…
  • This Movie Clip Sums Up the SFX-Beatport Vision of the Future of Dance Music

    Peter Kirn
    17 Dec 2014 | 11:39 am
    Synergy. That’s the direction you can expect from Beatport and SFX Entertainment. And the speech above from the film In Good Company more or less fits. (The plot of that 2004 movie even includes an acquisition by a conglomerate.) Basically, SFX may have solved the problem of how to make money in the streaming business – by making its money elsewhere. Or, it seems that’s the plan. Here’s the problem: music streaming has razor-thin margins versus sales. The artists and labels eek out fairly small bits of change, generally. They can blame the streaming services, but with…
  • Jeff Mills on Audiences, Techno’s “Who Cares If You Listen”

    Peter Kirn
    16 Dec 2014 | 3:29 pm
    Techno legend Jeff Mills has a beautiful quote making the rounds on social media, responding to the question of audience. He’s still making music for them, he says – but doesn’t want to get pulled into simply giving them what he knows will work. Watch from about 8:30 for the video above, in its original context (a 2010 tugobot piece). It resonates for me with the Milton Babbitt’s “Who Cares if You Listen?” (That’s a title Babbitt claimed he never used; this is a tale so familiar to contemporary music that it has its own Wikipedia entry, for those of…

    2014 is coming to a close, and with the close of another year comes a time where people argue and debate all December about what were the best albums of the year. Many have said that 2014 wasn’t a good year for Hip Hop, due to the lack of huge releases and the overuse of DJ Mustard’s beats. But don’t be fooled, 2014 was a year where many young artists flourished under the spotlight, production-rap collaborations set their social media timelines on fire (We’re talking to you Run The Jewels), and seasoned veterans made their outstanding return to Hip Hop.

I though it was a great, wide-ranging conversation with at least two highlights: 1) Thes using an ancient Gemini mixer with built-in sampler to recreate the “Funky Lemonade (Remix)” loop. 2) Thes showing that you can pretty much chop up anything into a decent beat by using how he Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” The whole convo is worth listening to if you’re like me (a sample nerd).

Cocker was born in Sheffield, England in 1944 and was best known for his gritty voice and his unusual stage presence, which was famously parodied by John Belushi. Joe had a way of adding his own spirit to the many covers he sang over the years with his version of The Beatles' "A Little Help From My Friends" among his trademark performances. Cocker scored a number of hits over the years including 1975's "You Are So Beautiful"…

    22 Dec 2014 | 3:43 am
    CROWBAR frontman Kirk Windstein believes that bands like KISS should quit making new albums because their latest material doesn't come close to matching the quality of their classic output. Windstein, who credits KISS with inspiring him to play music when he first heard the Paul Stanley- and Gene Simmons-led outfit back in 1975, tells Echo Asylum 's Insanity: "You hate to say it, but some bands, as they get older, they put out a record as an excuse to go on tour." He continues: "As big a fan as I am of KISS, and, actually, after reading Paul Stanley's book, I have a whole new insight on why…

"People have a different opinion and impression of what goes on in rock and roll, per se, or anything in the music industry.

Corgan explained, "I thought for sure I would get really strong reviews for our new album, based on all the feedback I was getting. But I'm getting the same reviews I got back in the day, these kind of middling, muddling reviews that just won't fucking say: 'This is a fuking brilliant album from a brilliant artist.' It's always got to have a qualifier to it." Corgan told The…

But when Los Straitjackets - led by guitarslinger and Rensselaer native Eddie Angel - joined him onstage for nuggets like the Tex-Mex flavored "Half a Boy and Half a Man," the perfect pop of "Cruel to Be Kind," the rollicking "Raging Eyes" and as Lowe described it, the "frat house, soul music thing" of "Not Too…

    From his early films like Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and Beetlejuice to his idiosyncratic brilliant masterworks such as Edward Scissorhands, for over three decades now, Tim Burton has been one of Hollywood’s most iconic filmmakers. And this Christmas, Burton strikes again with Big Eyes, starring Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams. As the story of one of the biggest art world frauds in history, Adams plays the role of Margaret Keane, whose husband garnered wild international acclaim for her paintings after crediting them to himself.

In a way, it proved just how stagnant this season has been, focusing on clichéd ideas of personal crisis and playing them for sheer discomfort rather than forward-thinking laughs. It continuously holds up broad signposts rather than letting Valerie use her limitations to her advantage, which is what made this show great in the first place. The Comeback has always been about…

    Everyone loves a good industry party.

So when I heard about a particular party Google was throwing in a particular city, my interest was peaked. Little did I know how much I would learn by crashing a party, and you can do the same. It all started when I decided that I’d like to go to this Google party, but it seemed that somehow my slick digital…

    Here’s an exciting thing. We’ve been waiting for rising Chicago artist Jean Deaux to drop her Soular System mixtape ever since we heard word of it back in 2013, but she’d been quiet for most of this year. Now, the first part of the two-part mixtape, Dark Matter[s], is available to download. The 11-track project wades through foggy-headed R&B (Equilibrium Rough Final), hard-to-reach pop nuggets (VOODOO) and faded, ambient rapping (A CROWS INTERLUDE).

    Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some Sonos. We’ve got pretty much every product they’ve come up with in the house, and just can’t imagine living without it. I recently decided that I wanted to add the ability to play vinyl into our arsenal (the kids are old enough so that they don’t seem too inclined to try to ride/draw on the turntable). I’d been plotting my vinyl strategy out over the course of many years of insomnia-nights, and so when I finally decided to pull the trigger, it went very smoothly. I’ve had in my possession an old Victrola that…

  • How to control Apple’s iTunes Radio with Sonos

    George Howard
    25 Sep 2013 | 6:11 am
    Apple recently introduced its version of a music streaming service. Given the market penetration Apple has via its devices, user adoption of iTunes Radio will be high. Apple is notoriously “closed” when it comes to its technology; they control their eco-system tightly. You can’t for instance watch movies you download from iTunes on an Amazon Kindle. The chances, therefore, of Apple allowing Sonos users to access iTunes Radio directly from the Sonos music services — in the way Sonos users can, for instance, access music from Concert Vault or Spotify — is slim. As…
  • Recipe for Cable Cutting: AppleTV, Netflix, and Aereo

    George Howard
    16 Sep 2013 | 7:09 pm
    I’ve been on the edge of severing ties with my cable subscription for a number of years. I hadn’t done it because while the AppleTV/iTunes/Netflix/Hulu combo provided me with more than I could ever want/watch in terms of programming, there was the occasional concern that there’d be some live TV programming that I wouldn’t want to miss. This concern was alleviated by Aereo, which grabs free over-the-air HD signals from the networks (and a few other stations), and allows you to watch live or record on your computer or mobile device. It works swmimmingly, and for…

  • Annie and girl culture

    VictoriaD
    20 Dec 2014 | 5:30 am
    The musical version of little orphan Annie – as distinct from her original, cartoon incarnation – was born a fully formed ten-year-old in 1977, and she quickly became an icon of girlhood. Since then, thousands of girls have performed songs like “Maybe” and “Tomorrow,” sometimes in service to a production of the musical, but more often in talent shows, music festivals, or pedagogical settings. The plucky orphan girl seems to combine just the right amount of softness and sass, and her musical language is beautifully suited to the female prepubescent voice. So what can Annie teach us…
  • 10 fun facts about sleigh bells

    18 Dec 2014 | 4:30 am
    The ringing sound of sleigh bells is all too familiar around this time of the year. It’s the official siren signaling in the winter season. While a well-known signature staple on sleighs, Santa suits and reindeer, jingle bells haven’t always been associated with Christmas. They do much more than just ring in holiday cheer. 1. Sleigh bells or jingles bells are a type of bell that produces a distinctive jingle sound. They are in the percussion family of instruments. 2. The bells are made from sheet metal bent into a spherical shape with a small ball bearing or short metal rod placed inside…

  • Five tips for music directors during the holiday season

    Christmas is a time for music, and music directors’ calendars typically fill up in December. In academic circles, there are Christmas pageants, holiday musicals, end-of-term recitals, and Christmas music concerts. On the professional scene, performers take advantage of both the celebratory and melancholy sides of the season to present concerts, charity events, and special performances (full-length or one-off). Shows running on and Off-Broadway, and in regional and community theaters tack on additional performances; theaters and producers mount shows geared especially for children and family…
  • The Lerner Letters: Part 2 – Lerner and Loewe

    This is the second of a three-part series from Dominic McHugh on the correspondence of Alan Jay Lerner. Read the previous letters to Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. The next installment will appear on Tuesday, 23 December 2014. Amongst the many famous people Lerner corresponded with, Frederick Loewe is naturally the most important in terms of musical collaborators. Yet sadly, correspondence between Lerner and Loewe is quite rare. I found only a few letters between them during the course of the research for the book, and was particularly disappointed by the lack of letters from their early…

    Like many of my colleagues, I am unhappy to hear that Allan Kozinn, a hugely knowledgeable observer and chronicler of the New York music scene, has been laid off from the New York Times. He had been writing for the paper since the 1970s and became a staff critic in 1991. Will Robin has a compilation of classic Kozinn stories. In the past couple of years, Allan was inexplicably relegated to covering the felonious escapades of pop stars; let's hope that at other publications he will return to the classical beat he knows so well. I can do no better than to quote Jeremy Eichler: "Superb…

  • Joe Cocker dies at 70

    22 Dec 2014 | 11:22 am
    British soul singer Joe Cocker died earlier today at his home in Crawford, Colo., from lung cancer. He was 70. Cocker was born in Sheffield, England in 1944. He started his career in music in 1961 under the stage name Vance Arnold, with a group called Vance Arnold and the Avengers. Cocker was known for, among other things, his trademark raspy voice and wild, on-stage hip gyrations. His biggest hits included a 1968 cover of the Beatles "With a Little Help from My Friends" and a 1969 cover of Leon Russel's "Delta Lady." Cocker won a Grammy in 1983 for "Up Where We Belong," a duet with Jennifer…
  • Serge Fiori on 4 Quebec albums every Canadian should hear

    22 Dec 2014 | 10:24 am
    Serge Fiori is the legendary Quebec singer-songwriter who recently won album of the year in the CBC Music Awards (a "surreal" win, said Fiori, adding that he was shocked he beat Arcade Fire). This year, the 62-year-old stepped back into the spotlight after a 28-year break from the stage. Once the leader of progressive folk-rock group Harmonium (think Pink Floyd of Quebec), Fiori became a huge star, but decided the attention was too much for him. He instead focused on composing film scores, commercial jingles and meditation music. On the heels of his CBC Music Awards win, we asked Fiori to…

  • 2014: the year of the Canadian indie rock reunion

    22 Dec 2014 | 4:55 am
    We're not totally sure on the reason — maybe it's because it's been a decade or more since many of these bands first came to the attention of many of us, or maybe it's because time heals all wounds — but 2014 proved to be a remarkable year for indie rock reunions. Some of the biggest splashes were made by the reformation of Constantines, the Smalls, and the Unicorns, but there were many other rock reunions going on across the country throughout the year. Hover and click on the image above to check out our gallery of the plethora of indie rock bands who got back together in 2014. Which…

    1) Indie Music by the Numbers First, Jack Conte published a detailed Pomplamoose 2014 Tour Profits report on Medium.com in late November. He was exceedingly transparent in laying out the band’s exact income and expenses, revealing that they lost nearly $12,000 USD on a 28-day tour. Then came the backlash. From many sources: Andy Cush on Gawker, Spencer Lee on Medium, Santos Montano on Pitchfork, Bob Lefsetz, and more. They accused the band of reckless spending and Conte of using it as a veiled promotion for Patreon. So much for giving people a peek behind the curtain. 2) Amanda Palmer…

Last year, when we’d interviewed Munbir Chawla of Wild City, one of the founders of the festival, he’d told us that the festival market of India lacks something “that not only has good…
  • Listen to Sandunes’ Remix of Nischay Parekh’s ‘Philosophize’

    Ritwik Deshpande
    9 Dec 2014 | 5:01 am
    Earlier this year, when Sandunes teamed up with Wolves for The Memory Lamp, she said their motivation for producing the second part of the suite was to evoke “the collective nostalgia which inherently reminds us of our interdependence in an age where independence is so celebrated”. With those words, she might just have summarized the pattern of her existence in India’s independent music ecosystem (and beyond). Over the last two years, she has established herself as a restless collaborator – a personality type that couldn’t be more far removed from the stereotype of the introverted…

    As I walked into Blue Frog and heard Danny Brown trying match the upward ascent of a Rustie synth-storm, it felt like the airlock of a spaceship had just broken loose and I was being sucked into outer space. In this case, what outer space looked like was a lake of sweaty bodies undulating in front of Glaswegian producer Hudson Mohawke, who was dropping his Warp / LuckyMe label-mate’s propulsive collaboration with everyone’s favorite Detriot-based rapper. It took a moment for it to sink in – the Hudson Mohawke, the guy responsible for crafting the sonics of three of last year’s…

Of late I’ve also been examining the standard planning propaganda* (I use that term here in its modern, non-pejorative sense**) about the future of the Flats in Vancouver.

    From Wikipedia: culture: the capacity to classify and encode human experiences symbolically, and to communicate symbolically encoded experiences socially This traditional definition of “culture” – not the only currently operative one, but one still prevalent in much discourse on practices in everyday life – is obviously problematic where the inclusion of nonhuman subjects (and human subjects incapable of sending messages or indicating their understanding of them) is presumed, or even merely contemplated. If one cannot signify, one might argue, one therefore cannot be…

    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.

    Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" and Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" will probably be close to the top of the year-end Top 40 charts; together the singles have sold more than 6.5 million copies, according to Wikipedia, and that number will only get higher every time a teen or tween downloads another mp3 of the songs. A Top 40 song must be pretty popular to get my attention, and these two have done so for two reasons: They're everywhere; you can't get away from them, whether you listen to the radio or watch television or YouTube. I have to qualify this - parts of the songs are downright…
  • A Second Listen: ‘High Dive,’ Maria McKee

    5 Dec 2014 | 10:49 am
    My all-time favorite album is Maria McKee's Life Is Sweet.  Bold and cutting with an overdramatic, almost manic flair, this CD brought to mind David Bowie's music during his Ziggy Stardust phase. It was a complete departure from her alt-country sound, and it also marked the end of her relationship with Geffen Records. I waited impatiently for Life is Sweet's follow-up. When High Dive was finally released in 2003 (seven years - seven years later!), I was still expecting Life Is Sweet 2, not realizing that McKee's musical direction may have changed. (That's my fatal flaw in finding perfect…

The band announced their more mainstream sound with the title of the first track, "Pop Song '89." "Hello, how are you, I know you I knew you. I think I can remember your name" - clearly not the deepest lyrics, but lead singer Michael…

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:43 am

But without her collaborator, the amazingly talented Jon Brion, her songs lacked the power, quirkiness and melody that was so apparent in her first three albums. She showed some signs of breaking through that slump in 2012's Charmer, but it's taken a songwriting and performing partnership with punk/indie rocker Ted Leo to awaken her. Leo opened for Mann during her 2012 tour in support of Charmer, and the two decided to write some…

Nothing compares to the mesmerising result of her painstaking work. Each image appears to be an enlargement of a black-and-white photograph, except that it isn’t. It is a one-of-a-kind, hand-drawn piece of art.

    The holiday season always gets me in the mood to cook. I saw an ad in my Cooking Light magazine featuring the cutest potato wedges with assorted toppings and I had to give them a try. I used my mandolin to get exact sizes so that the potatoes cooked evenly. It was super easy and fun to think of different toppings…the skies the limit! When I think of potato appetizers I  automatically think of traditional potato skins with cheddar cheese and bacon bits. These felt a lot lighter and packed way more flavor than the traditional recipe. So get creative and make this tasty recipe for your…

I’m obsessed with caramelized onions and the flavor of the wine soaked onions and thyme paired so beautifully with the tangy goat cheese and flaky puff pastry. It’s the perfect appetizer or mid day snack. I ate one cold the day after and the flavors were so bold and scrumptious! So add this to your list…

The song will be featured on his upcoming album titled “The Young OG Project” which will be dropping on Christmas Day, December 25th. We are especially loving the 90s theme of the video and and are heavily looking forward to the album which is supposed to be carrying the same theme throughout.

    8 Dec 2014 | 10:09 am
    You guys might have not heard of the young producer “Stackboy Twaun”, but I’m sure you have heard his music before. His biggest credit came this year when he produced the Migos smash single “Fight Night”. Other credits include Young Scooter, Jose Guapo and a handful of other tracks he produced for Migos. We asked Twan to answer a couple of short questions for us so that when the next you hear about him you know who he his. What do you like most about producing? I love working with the artist to come up with new sounds and developing new innovative waves of…

    Its amazing to see how far hip-hop has come over these 40 plus odd years and its interesting to see its mutations. OG’s are frustrated with the post Soulja Boy era of rap music while the new generation eagerly explores the infinite frontiers of the musical phenomenon. Hip-Hop isn’t dead its just more accessible by the world, just ask nineties baby hip hop creator Sonny Digital. Sonny Digital is one the most sought after young producers who are skating through the Hip-Hop scene right now. His monster hits like “Racks” and 2 Chainz “Birthday Song” bang at…

As an experiment for them I took an article in which they referenced some data heavy material, crunched the numbers, and played around with D3. http://simonv3.github.io/facing-finance-dirty-money/#notification-anchor The visualization looks at 20 top European banks and what companies they invest in. These companies have been accused and found guilty of corruption, environmental destruction, union busting, and humanitarian violations. The data is based on a report by Facing Finance.
  • JavaScript's Churn is Not a Bad Thing

    Simon
    7 Dec 2014 | 8:39 pm
    JavaScript is going through some rough times. None of this is surprising. Until a couple of years ago, JS was a language most front-end designers were forced to use because it was all there was. Luckily libraries like jQuery kept us all sane. Then Node.JS came along and suddenly the language was a real tool that people could use to do an amazing amount of things with. Suddenly you could package manage JavaScript! That's revolutionary for a language. JavaScript is also immensely popular. It's an easy first programming language to learn for a lot of people because getting something up and…
  • Mu and being told to introduce yourself as Canadian

    Simon
    27 Nov 2014 | 8:03 pm
    When we're in other countries and meeting new people my partner - who is American - is regularly jokingly recommended to introduce herself as Canadian by the person she's meeting for the first time. Being American is often mocked in other countries. People are astounded by American politics, American media, and American culture. They will gladly point these things out to any Americans they happen to meet. This mocking doesn't stop within America. In US left wing conversations shame of your country's policies is a recurring theme1, and when you're asked - outside of the US - whether you're…

    This post was originally published on UnevenEarth, a fantastic publication just getting off the ground trying to disect environmental news. Two years ago a friend tweeted this article from the Mr. Money Mustache backlog. The author preaches a gospel that struck me as true - if you're privileged, and you're in a lucky position to have a steady income, and you can be comfortable in that knowledge, than through frugality, research, and understanding, you can reach financial independence fairly easily. When that happens, you can focus on the things that you think are really important. The overall…
  • A Goodreads Alternative

    Simon
    9 Nov 2014 | 9:27 pm
    Goodreads lets me do a couple of things I like - easy tracking of the books I read - but Goodreads implementation of a social network is lacking, and probably misplaced. There are not enough active users for serious recommendations from other people I know. My feed is largely made up of people accepting friend requests and one or two prolific readers listing what they want to read and what they have read. I'm not a huge fan of crowd-sourced reviews, with the end result that every book has a 3.8 average rating. I would prefer reviews from a few critical reviewers who do this for a living, or…

    Jillian Mapes
    22 Dec 2014 | 11:35 am
    Nicki Minaj continued her big promotional push behind The Pinkprint on Friday, when she released a 16-minute film paired with three of the album’s most revealing songs, “The Crying Game,” “I Lied,” and “Grand Piano.” At times, The Pinkprint Movie looked more like a subtle Range Rover ad than a music video — get that McConaughey money, Onika — while at others it played like a quiet sex scene in which neither of the actors felt comfortable removing their clothes. Overall, the film was largely tasteful and a bit bland, despite the…

    The Cure, although not typically known for their Christmas spirit, performed the first of three Christmas shows last night at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo in London. The band stunned with a forty-song set over more than two-and-a-half hours, which included four encores. They played “The Wailing Wall” and “The Empty World” for the first time in thirty years; the concert also featured the live debut of “The Man Inside My Mouth” from the b-side The Head On The Door.

    “I was hoping to release my new single ‘Living For Love’ on Valentine’s Day with the rest of the album coming in the Spring,” Madonna said in a recent statement. “I would prefer my fans to hear completed versions of some of the songs instead of the incomplete tracks that are circulating. Please consider these six songs as an early Christmas gift.” So mote it be. Madonna’s follow-up to 2012’s MDNA is Rebel Heart, scheduled for a March 10 release.

    Christmas is all about business, and what’s better business than Christmas music? It’s no surprise then, that groups from all corners of the music industry are piling on to the already gigantic pile of Christmas tunes. But most of them still kind of suck, hard as they try to break the mold of the traditional Christmas song. Every once in a while a true gem comes along, and 2014 finally has its own: “Pink Christmas” by indie supergroup SLINK, which is made up of Seth Bogart (aka Hunx, of Hunx and His Punx), Cody Critcheloe of SSION, and Samantha Urbani of Friends.

    We’re at Peak Holiday Season, folks, and while the music doesn’t directly reflect that — well, one track kind of does — this week, with a new Kendrick Lamar cut, we’re busting through the fuzz and getting to what’s important. With the rest, though, we’re actually creating layers and layers of fuzz so that we can step back from the insanity that usually overcomes the last few weeks of the year. Kendrick Lamar — “Untitled” Kendrick appeared on one of the final episodes of The Colbert Report this week, and he brought this untitled track with…

They remind me a little of a band I really liked last year called Japandroids.

    15 Dec 2014 | 7:32 pm
    Six Bro-Country Artists Touring In 2015 Bro-country is the most important subgenre since the CB radio/trucker movement of the 1970s.   Jason Aldean is his generation’s C.W. McCall. Okay, that’s a bit of hyperbole.  Bro-country is about ten times more important than “Convoy” and similar songs from the era.  Apart from blonde songbirds and Garth Brooks, no one in country music sells more concert tickets and albums than bro-country artists. What Is Bro-Country?  Bro-country is a subgenre of country music that’s performed almost exclusively…

    U2 Tour To Strengthen Band’s Claim Of Greatest Live Act Of All-Time It’s not really news when U2 announces a tour in wake of an album release.  I mean, when you hear about a new U2 album you immediately expect a new U2 tour.  After all, the Irish rockers are the world’s number one live act and a tour is an excuse for them to make more money than a medium-sized country’s annual GNP.  What is news is when Bono crashes his bicycle.  That’s headline making stuff.  Paul Hewson was actually in a bike accident back in mid-November.  Despite…

  • Want to play Careless Whisper on Alto Sax? Inspired by the Sexy Sax Man Sergio Flores

    Neal
    20 Dec 2014 | 5:25 am
    Careless Whisper line on alto sax. So if you’re looking for the ‘sexy sax man sheet music’ this is basically it plus you can hear it and play along in pieces.  (It’s also in this book) Don’t terrorize too many people with this! First note is C# with the octave key on alto sax. If you want to play it on tenor, that note is an F# at the top of the horn. Playing it here in a similar way to how Sergio played. In the original version there’s a sixteenth run (D major scale on alto) going into it and the last part in this lesson starts on the low F# instead of…

    Neal
    14 Dec 2014 | 10:13 am
    Question: When starting out is about 15 to 20 minutes a day practice enough? Geoff Beston Response: That is a good starting point. The consistency of ‘a day’ meaning ‘everyday’ is more important than the amount of time. If you could practice a little more, like 30-45 minutes, that could be better. But if you cannot, then everyday at 15 minutes each day is better than an hour twice a week.

They have many similarities. Fingers go in the same places. You read music in the same way. The main difference will be with how the embouchure feels. But if anything, it should be easier to transition from alto to tenor than from alto to to tenor. The only way that’s not true is in terms of the air required to play tenor…

    It’s been a tough week for Madonna, who was forced to sit back and watch as hackers leaked private photographs and demos for her forthcoming thirteenth studio album ‘Rebel Heart‘ (due March 10th.) In a statement on her official site, Madge explains why she’s decided to take matters into her own hands by surprise releasing six finished tracks today: “I was hoping to release my new single ‘Living For Love’ on Valentine’s Day with the rest of the album coming in the Spring.

    Kylie Minogue squeezes in a music video shoot just before Christmas (check out the stills above). But for what song? Her Kiss Me Once Tour has finished (except for a handful of Australian dates in March 2015), and the promotion for the album of the same title seemed to have ended months ago. We have three theories, in order of likeliness: a video for her collaboration with Giorgio Moroder a video backdrop for the Australian dates of her Kiss Me Once Tour (which we demand she renames to: Kiss Me Once Down Under Tour) a video for another rumoured Fernando Garibay EP a video for fan favourite…

Madonna wasn’t too pleased about it, but yesterday’s appearance of 11 (!) demos from her upcoming album really made her angry. The superstar took to Instagram to vent her anger, typing: “This is artistic rape!! These are early leaked demo’s half of which wont even make it on my album the other half have changed and evolved.

You’ll learn more (hopefully), which is the benefit of age, but your personality and habits are pretty much set by the time you reach 30. And you never really get any older in your mind. Your body doesn’t do what it did when you were 21, or 25 or 30, but your mind still thinks it’s 30. All this stuff is more interesting than you might surmise… This fact struck me when I was being interviewed about all the artwork and memorabilia that we have in the OffBeat…

    I have made it no secret that The Men‘s 2013 LP, New Moon, was among my favorite releases of the year. It marked a new pinnacle for the band, in my opinion; an arena slightly more accessible to the common listener and a bit more in line with my own personal tastes. Unfortunately, this year’s Tomorrow’s Hits hasn’t quite gripped me as much as its predecessor. Enter Dream Police and their forthcoming album Hypnotized. Dream Police is a project containing members of The Men — Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi — and it has a similarly forward-leaning style of…

    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…

    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.

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).

The artist shared some pictures of his work with the following message: “Couple pieces I did on my man Lil Wayne. A very hospitable and professional client, thanks Wayne!” I am not too sure what these tattoos are of, so I will edit this post when official confirmation surfaces online, but it looks like Weezy got the Eye of Providence tattooed on his chin and “Mumma’s Boy” in Arabic tatted above his left eye. But like I said, I am not 100%…

    If you’re a Thrice fan and you’ve been wondering if the band will ever come out of hiatus, you may be in luck in 2015. Earlier this year we posted about how frontman Dustin Kensrue said that touring in the future was “very very likely” for Thrice and that he anticipated new music to be recorded eventually. Well, eventually may turn out to be next year. The band posted the following pic on their official website, and as you know, we love to jump to conclusions. Thrice in 2015. YES.

Now they’re gearing up to release their highly anticipated debut album Concerto for Double Moon. But while the record is still months away from being released, tis the season to be jolly.

Now Johnny and Aman are back, featured on a beautiful, mellow jam from Astro Zu in the form of Ghost Town. It’s a little different to Twin Peaks own distorted electro-pop sound, with Astro Zu’s clean and tight production, but it’s an understated, pulsating delight. Ghost Town is on sale now at Bandcamp.

Hosted once again by the affably wicked Bluff Channahon (aka David Moore, from Langorne Slim and Bing and Ruth), there were songs about everything from Park Slope moms, to putting your P***y on AirBnb. Some of the songs might have crossed a line - necrophilia, anyone? - but, as they say, you never really know where the line is until you've gone over it.

Although he hadn’t recorded or released any music, he still toured around the U.S. and overseas over the years. I have no idea how we’ve made it this long without hearing his voice on a new record.

  • The-Dream shares new track, ‘Fruition’

    Alex Moore
    22 Dec 2014 | 8:51 am
    On Friday we just got three new songs from Miguel, and on Monday our inbox gets another dose of smooth R&B with the latest track from The-Dream. Terius Nash released the “Royalty” EP over the summer and stayed pretty quiet in the back half of the year, but maybe “Fruition” is the first taste of a new effort for 2015. After hitting terrestrial radio last week the track just hit Soundcloud on Monday—listen below via Pitchfork.
  • Here’s Paul Stanley’s bizarre unaired Folgers ad

    Maggie Serota
    22 Dec 2014 | 7:30 am
    If there’s anything the members of KISS have never shied away from, it’s an endorsement deal or licensing opportunity. After lending the band’s name to condoms and coffins, it probably comes as no surprise that KISS singer Paul Stanley once shot a commercial for coffee. According to Stereogum, the spot was filmed in 2000, but never aired until it surfaced online this week.The YouTube uploader imakissfan2 theorizes that the ad never aired because “…ultra conservative parent company, Proctor and Gamble shelved [the ad] out of concern regarding being associated with…
  • Notorious B.I.G. remix of ‘Serial’ theme is ridiculously addictive

    Art Tavana
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:15 pm
    Sarah Koenig’s “Serial” podcast was voyeuristic amusement for some, a serious murder inquiry others, and for just about everyone else it was over-hyped sleaze. But like any suspenseful nightmare, including the still-unsolved murder of rapper Notorious B.I.G., the saga of “Serial” isn’t going away any time soon. So now, snippets from the podcast (along with the moody theme) have been mashed together with Biggie’s “Somebody’s Gotta Die.”Fafu’s remix of the “Serial” theme with a Biggie verse may or may not be making…
  • The tragic story behind Stephen Colbert closing show with Neutral Milk Hotel

    Alex Moore
    19 Dec 2014 | 11:30 am
    On Thursday night Stephen Colbert closed out the “Colbert Report” finale with a star-studded “We’ll Meet Again” that was like a “We Are The World” of the news satire genre. It was a hell of a final act. But after the closing song Colbert added one last coda you probably didn’t notice that has a chilling backstory.The song was “Holland, 1945″ from Neutral Milk Hotel’s seminal “In the Aeroplane over the Sea.” Uproxx points to a send-off Maureen Dowd of the New York Times wrote for Colbert earlier this year after his…
  • Billy Corgan wants more credit, but sees 90’s music as ‘meaningless’

    Joel Freimark
    19 Dec 2014 | 10:15 am
    Billy Corgan has continued his transformation into the Gene Simmons of his generation, now stating that the perhaps too-highly-vaulted music of the 1990s “doesn’t mean anything,” and this includes his own contributions to that category. Along with that slice of brilliance, he spun out of control, angrily asking the world to give him the full recognition and acclaim he clearly feels has been in short supply for the past two decades.In his most recent ranty interview, Corgan made the point that in the current music scene, “EDM is kicking everybody’s fucking ass” in terms of…

    TheEditor
    28 Nov 2014 | 7:28 am
    By Gemma Brosnan THERE’s no doubt the term English Riviera conjures up instant comparatives of everything the French do better, but perceptions of the old-fashioned seaside are slowly shifting away from the ‘kiss-me-quick, squeeze-me-slowly’ Brits-on-holiday mentality as the region undergoes an extensive revival. While Torbay’s sandy beaches and sub-tropical climate have long been highlighted, the region has recently undergone a dramatic refurbishment to shake off the dreary Fawlty Towers tagline that has haunted the tourist board for almost 40 years.

    At the point when your Facebook companions have children, you’re besieged with photographs and features of everything from first steps to first semi-robust solid discharges. However when celebs have children, its about the main time they disappear. Why? Since first child photographs can square with huge cash, and what’s the purpose of being well known whether you can’t abuse your children, isn’t that so? Case in point, Kourtney Kardashian respected her third child practically a week prior she still hasn’t discharged a photograph or even the kid’s name! That…

    Housemartins - Happy HourToday's Song of the Day is from England's Housemartins - Happy Hour. From 1986's London 0 Hull 4 (a football score for those in the US who have no clue, like me),  Its alternative, described as jangle pop with a soul vocal.  Upbeat and catchy.  The video is quite good, but you'll have to wait a little before the song starts. The band gave birth to Beautiful South and Fatboy Slim.

    Howard Tate - Ain't Nobody HomeToday's Song of the Day features a trio of tunes from Howard Tate.  The first two, Ain't Nobody Home and Get It While You Can, are from his 1966 album Get It While You Can.  The third, 8 Days on the Road, is from 1972's Howard Tate.Soul, sounding a lot like Otis Redding. Howard Tate shows just how hard the music business is.  His first album in particular, where he teamed with writer/producer Jerry Ragovoy (he wrote Time Is On My Side by the Rolling Stones), is chock full of great soul that should have launched a long and successful career.

    As Niko Eme slowly focuses into view, we are introduced to a unique synthesis of marching club beat and bluegrass instrumentation.  The film’s scenery similarly presents a sharp contrast of nightlife lightly blended into the remote Arizona wilderness.  This is not your conventional music video. 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…

    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…

Ed Sullivan, born a New Yorker in 1901, was for many years part of an elite circle of Broadway columnists who was read by insiders and outsiders alike. In this capacity he made connections with some of the top names in show business. Having already broadcasted on radio, this put Sullivan in a good position to move into the new medium of television. He developed his program, initially called Toast of the Town, with his producer Marlo Lewis and was originally…

Young, and full of musical arrogance, I had a way of looking down on some of the popular musicians at the time. Remember, the mid 1980’s was a time when hip-hop was forging a new place in the music industry, but I had my doubts about its sustainability. My supercilious demeanor extended toward the disc jockey as well. “How hard is it to play a record“, I thought to myself. “The difficult part is the performance of the singers and musicians“.

    Do you believe it has almost been thirty years since the historic recording of the song "We Are the World"? That means there is an entire generation of people who although are very familiar with the song, were not born when the song was recorded and initially released. It also means there is an entire generation today that may not know the purpose of the song. Music is produced every day and of course, the songs are personal to the writer, performer or both. Nevertheless, there are many songs created to further a cause. "We are the World" is a good example of this because it was written and…

However, if next on the list is a banjo player, and then mandolin, you would start to see the makings of a bluegrass or folk music outfit. You would assume this based on instrumentation only - without really hearing the group.

I'm going to list the pieces in no particular order and tell you why I thought they were cool.SSL XL-Desk - A new console featuring 500 series slots. How cool is that? Of course this concept was no big deal in the 60s and 70s when a number of console manufacturers operated using cartridge modules, but few modules were interchangeable between manufacturers then. Now they are, making the XL-Desk very flexible.Sample Magic Magic…

  • Bruce Springsteen "Born To Run" Isolated Vocals

    Bobby Owsinski
    18 Dec 2014 | 9:30 pm
    One of the things that we can learn from isolated tracks is what works in the context of a particular hit record. The reverb, compression, performance, and production all make a big difference in how we ultimately perceive the song. That's why this week's isolated track, the vocal on Bruce Springsteen's breakout "Born To Run," is so cool, since it readily exhibits all of those things. Here's what to listen for.1. The vocal is very compressed, but it's not sibilant. What happens is that we can hear every breath and it just raises the passion of the performance. We might cut out those breaths…
  • 7 Unusual But Useful Christmas Gifts For Musicians

    Like it or not, most working musicians have a lot of grunt work to do when gigging. Setting up and tearing down is a thankless part of the job, so let's make it as easy as possible. Here are a number of tools that are staples of stagehands all over the world, but can really come in handy in those moments when all you want to do is get everything gig ready.1. Gerber Flik Multitool - It's a pliers, it's a knife, it's a scissors, it's a screwdriver. Why carry a tool box when you can have it all in one tool? About $40, but it's the best there is.2. Ultimate Focus Tool - This one tool…

  • Top 10 Cassettes of 2014

    22 Dec 2014 | 7:00 am
    I picked up quite a few tapes this year, but these are the ones that stood out for various reasons (mostly played them to death). No order. Just nothing but tape love.Washer- Big Head EP (Self-Released)Not only is Washers Bighead EP one of the top cassette releases, it's one of my favorite all-around releases of 2014. On their debut EP, Washer unloads a barrage of 90s quirk full of quick punk punches, post-punk bends and curves, and slight nods to known alt/grunge bands from the aforementioned decade. An excellent debut recommended in full.Buy ItRoomrunner- Separate (Accidental…
  • Chimes- Total Sunflower

    16 Dec 2014 | 8:00 am
    New Jersey/Brooklyn-based Chimes is a psych/slack rock foursome that revel in nothingness. While exploring dream worlds and the cinematic, they wade through pools of post-punk, psychedelia, and shoegaze, allowing rip currents of sonic expression to take them under. Total Sunflower is one of my favorite songs of the year. It's an electric track charged with a heavy post-punk feel on the guitars and vocals; a pummeling yet gauzy ride through wild guitar bends, pedal scuzz, and nihilistic poetics. This is a band to keep your ear on in 2015.Free Download

Hopefully this record is a good reflection of that. I feel it’s strong sonically and harder hitting than the previous record [Harmonicraft]. I’m happy with the last record, but I feel on this record, it’s just more solid song to song. You’ve got to…

The torturer is now ready for final judgement, but Furman wonders if "it's time to go back inside" and why he is even there in the first place.Laid out over a bed of bubbling bass and buzzing guitars, Torturer is further proof that Krill transcends their goofy online presence and is a "guitar…

The likeable track is full of the kind of post-adolescent sentiments you’d expect to hear from a young band fresh out of high-school. While we were listening to ‘Suicide Saturday’ we checked out the full ‘Bashful Creatures’ EP and it’s lined with spritely-indie melodies, heart on sleeve lyrics and a general happy-go-lucky vibe which makes them sound so appealing… Head over to their Bandcamp page to download the EP…

  • 5 Reasons Email is Essential to Online Marketing

    Katie Reilly
    1 Oct 2014 | 2:42 pm
    In the world of twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, it may seem like email is old news akin to saving your work to a floppy disk (and if you don't know what that is then that only further proves my point). That assumption though is, frankly, wrong and if you're not taking advantage of email for marketing, you should reconsider. Email is a powerful, cost effective tool that gives you the power to reach your fans directly and easily. Here's why you should be using email:Ownership Do you recall when MySpace was the most popular social networking site? Countless brands and musicians…

  • Dead Sara at The Merrow

    Chris Hicke
    21 Dec 2014 | 9:30 am
    On November 22, it was rock night at The Merrow, featuring San Diego locals The Dexter Riley Xperiment, Sensory Station, and Dead Sara from Los Angeles; they’re the only band I was familiar with before entering the venue. The Merrow features a fairly large stage and dance floor, along with pool tables and a small seating area for people to enjoy the shows. The main bar area is a smaller room at the main entrance, which can be cordoned off from the stage room by large black curtains. It’s a nice venue, decorated in a nautical theme (“Merrow” is the Gaelic term for merman/mermaid…
  • South West Metal @ the Til-Two Club 10/18/2014

    Chris Hicke
    6 Dec 2014 | 1:00 pm
    For the second night my musical escapades a few weeks back, I attended the Til-Two Club in San Diego. This local dive bar appears to have a good deal of history behind it, as its walls are decorated with posters of previous shows featuring artists I’d never heard of, the designs for most of which suggest that this place has been open for a few decades. This notion is supported by the fact that the interior dance room still has a disco ball, mirrored ceiling panels, and DJ turntables on the dance floor. This is not where the night’s bands performed. The Til-Two Club has built a small stage…

    New EDM Producer is Making a Name with FALL 2014 EDM is one of those genres I keep coming back to time and again, mostly for its dance/house roots and easy listening characteristics. There's nothing quite like being out on a Friday or Saturday night with your friends and getting lost in the mix late at night. However, like in any genre or sub-genre of music, there are great artists and then there are those who don't quite make the cut. Some songs in particular really inspire me to get on my feet.Chicago-based EDM Producer BOMBS DROPPING is one of those who has truly outdone himself with…
  • Vile Creations, Lynch the Landlord, City of Crooks, and Illuminate at The Epicentre on 9/27/14

    5 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    A few weeks ago, I attended a hardcore/punk show at The Epicentre in San Diego. One of the few all-ages venues in San Diego, the night’s audience, and even most of the performers, was comprised largely of teenagers and parents of the performers. While not necessarily the largest of crowds, they were energetic enough to make up for it at times.First up for the night was Vile Creations, a group of kids playing their first gig as a band. For better or worse, it showed. While they do deserve some credit for adding leads and solos to hardcore, a genre not known for either, they were generally…

Also featured on this date was San Diego’s own Killing the Messenger, who opened for the bill at Soma San Diego.            Soma is a venue I’ve attended for years. It’s where some of my best high school memories were made; attending shows monthly, if not weekly, with friends and getting pulverized in the pit and against the stage barricade and…

    17 Dec 2014 | 4:26 pm
    When Daniel Ek launched Spotify, a stated goal was to diminish music piracy by giving piracy a competitor. Spotify accomplished this by offering a competitive service which pays rights holders for the music. As Ek suggests in his latest interview, we are just in the beginning, “…there’s a billion people doing it [listening to music online]. If they contribute to a legal service of any kind, that’s a huge win.” Ek goes on to say “We are in a growing industry, not really an industry where we’re fighting for market share.”  The music labels are all adjusting…

    Jimmy Iovine is always bold and confident with his assertions – if he’s right he gets bolder and if he’s wrong he moves on. His GQ question and answer interview for Men Of The Year is no exception. Conviction is not lacking. After all, the GQ title is “The Music Legend Who Just Might Save Apple.” … save Apple?!! — the most profitable company on the planet today… Iovine says he “convinced them (Apple) that they had to buy this company (Beats)… I think it was two years before they said yeah.” With the purchase of Beats, Apple…
  • Billboard 200 Chart To Count Streaming In Album Rankings

    File this under ‘on-demand streaming keeps marching forward and infiltrating more of the business of music.’ Billboard will now incorporate on-demand streaming services to its famed Billboard 200 chart — the chart that tracks the top 200 albums for the week. Old description Until now, Billboard used pure album sales from Nielsen SoundScan to rank the albums. Now SoundScan will add streaming numbers — from on-demand services like Spotify, Beats Music, Rdio, Rhapsody, Google Play Music — to sales numbers for an over-all ranking.

    Musician Ron Pope has written an Op-Ed for Billboard titled “How I Made $250K From Streaming.” The point of view of the article is from an independent musician who obviously works hard at the business side of his music. He describes how the streaming services have given him the ability to distribute worldwide – an impossibility before streaming came along unless you were signed to a major record company. Pope’s article is worth reading because it gives a balanced, level-headed, real-world view point of the current business of music. Pope describes a scenario of person…

    La Dispute have revealed their new video for ‘Woman (Reading)’, taken from the acclaimed third full-length ‘Rooms Of The House’. Following a woman dancing in various locations it’s a perfect accompaniment for a song that builds in tension, it’s as visually striking as it is listening to it.

As well as universally great reviews and much touted ‘Album of the Year’ nods, earlier this month she received a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Alternative Music Album’. It’s fair to say 2014 launched…

    Almost all the singers I know want to know how to sing higher. It is quite a feeling to hit a high note, hold it and then bask to the applause from the audience. Some singers could be at the top of their range, and wondering how they can break through the barrier to access those much sought after high notes. Other singers may just want to know how to go about increasing their range, so they can comfortably sing the songs they love. Whatever the reason, I want to explore 3 steps that are essential to learning how to sing higher and increasing your range. How To Sing Higher Step #1 –…
  • 3 Tips On How To Sing In Tune Without Trying

    Andy Barnes
    16 Dec 2014 | 2:31 am
    One of the hallmarks of a great singer is that they learned how to sing in tune and how to do it consistently. On the other end of the spectrum, when a singer struggles to stay in tune, it can be rather difficult to listen to. The goal is to learn how to sing in tune without having to try and sing in tune i.e. it comes naturally. to do this it is important that you learn to sing with a good,solid technique. I am not necessarily talking about singing in a live situation where you can’t hear yourself, as it would be difficult to stay on pitch no matter how good a singer you are. I am…

  • How To Sing With Vibrato If You Have A Straight Tone

    Andy Barnes
    10 Dec 2014 | 2:17 am
    It seems that in more modern singing styles, vibrato is not seen as something that doesn’t quite fit. If you listen to many singers, they will tend to sing a straight tone when holding long notes, and some singers may bring some vibrato right at the end of the note. I believe a little differently. I think that vibrato gives a voice its beauty. I also think that it can be used quite happily in modern singing. If you don’t believe me, just ask artists like Jeff Buckley. The correct use of vibrato not only makes a voice beautiful but can also make the voice sound bigger as well as…

    Martin Wilson
    22 Dec 2014 | 6:43 am
    Photograph courtesy of Kimberley Wilson. Hootenanny. What a wonderful Scottish word. It means “party” or “celebration” and you would normally associate it with pretty wild partying and traditional dancing, more often than not fueled by plenty of booze. Tonight is Roddy Woomble’s Christmas Hootenanny, a far more laid back affair than the word might suggest but a celebration none the less. It’s an interesting time to catch a solo Roddy gig now that Idlewild are back in the picture. The crowd is made up of a mix of Idlewild fans, fans of Roddy’s solo records and some that are no…

    Ryan Hickey
    22 Dec 2014 | 6:13 am
    Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see. -Arthur Schopenhauer I am a lost soul/I shoot myself with rock ‘n roll/The hole I dig is bottomless/But nothing else can set me free -Robert Pollard, “I Am a Scientist” It’s the end of the year, and those of us who scribble for music publications are supposed to reflect upon the most meaningful events of the past year and pontificate about those that are to come. For this piece, I’d like to begin with an examination of what I consider to be one of the biggest losses in independent music in 2014.
  • Grrl Pal Stream “NGHT”

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:22 am
    Grrl Pal’s name is a bit of a misnomer. I mean what would you expect from a group with “Grrl” in their name? Well, I expected feminist riot grrrl hardcore punk from Washington, DC! Instead Grrl Pal are a duo from Perth, Australia who specialise in synth heavy bedroom pop songs. This turn of events is by no means a disappointment. “NGHT” is a gorgeous piece of unassuming synthpop. The melodies are catchy, but not ostentatious. Quite wonderful. On top of this, that video is pretty delightful. My enjoyment is perhaps due to my love for anything night related. This…
  • Via Tania – Via Tania and the Tomorrow Music Orchestra – Album Review

    Wesley Freeman-Smith
    18 Dec 2014 | 11:03 am
    A collaboration between pop singer Via Tania & the Tomorrow Music Orchestra, this is the sort of project that really excites me. Artists crossing boundaries, challenging themselves to work in a different idiom… A plethora of aesthetic potentials can open up during this kind of endeavor. From the opening notes of first single ‘I See You Tiger’, the unknown beckons. “Once you traded spices, but you got caught up with the pirates… Next time you be the air, I’ll be the leaves”. Beautiful lines sung by a beautiful voice, effortless and soulful like a sultry…
  • King of Cats – Working Out – LP Review

    Jamie Coughlan
    17 Dec 2014 | 2:40 pm
    When my grandfather passed away in 2002, I witnessed my grandmother cry, sob in fact, and intone, “What will I do now?” The moment was so raw, intimate, and completely out of character for a tough and life hardened 85 year old Irish woman, who had buried her first three children as infants, that I didn’t know where to look. I shuffled uneasily, and, to my eternal shame, cowardly looked away, frightened by her vulnerability and visceral honesty. Listening to Working Out, the debut album by King of Cats (Brighton/Oxford singer songwriter Max Levy) is a similarly intimate,…

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

And aside from all the enthusiastic conversations he’s happened to stir throughout the music community (Four Tet, Mary Anne Hobbs and James Blake are endorsing him!), people are talking about his age. He’s only 16, but don’t let it distract you from his music! It’s quite a forceful and ominous presence, with the stomach punching bass lines that help to create a violent and gritty resonance.

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

Whether it’s a movie score or an instrumental accompaniment to a live performance, some of my favorite holiday tunes have no words at all.The best part about these songs is that you can play them while you are doing something else and not get distracted by a loud, booming (though talented) voice. On the flip side, if you take a moment to really pay attention, these songs will…

So much for being a musical adventurer.But man, these guys are good! I had actually never heard them until I listened to a bunch of music from this comment section on A Cup of Jo.

    “The Interview” has been getting publicity that it would never have dreamed of. Of course, the reason it’s on everyone’s newsfeed is because the planned December 25th release has been cancelled, so the publicity will not translate into revenue. Perhaps there is such a thing as bad publicity after all. The movie was in the news earlier because of its part in the Sony leak scandal, which started on November 24th. Sony, the studio producing “The Interview,” was the target of an unprecedented hack which stole company-wide sensitive information and leaked it…
  • IS NEW YORK GOING TO HAVE ITS OWN MEN’S FASHION WEEK?

    Men’s fashion has never seen as much hype as women’s. While all major fashion weeks do show men’s collections, they happen in far fewer numbers, and with fewer turnout than women’s. It’s just more fun to see a dress flow down the runway, I guess. But now, men might have an opportunity to stand on their own in a New York Men’s fashion week. Still in the works, this will allow American designers of menswear to showcase their collections to an audience specifically interested in men’s fashion. According to a report published in WWD, the Council of…

His new restaurant, called the Polo Bar, opens soon in New York City, just down the street from his flagship store on Fifth Avenue. It has become a trend for stores to open up restaurants under their brand, and successfully at that: ABC Carpet & Home has ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina; Armani has The Armani Ristorante, which is near the soon-to-open Polo Bar. To some, it sounds gimicky, but really it’s just about turning a vision into reality for Lauren. It is a restaurant not typically seen in New York,…
