    Blogs with Tracks: M.I.A.: ‘Boyz’ Kimono Kops Remix & ‘URAQT’ LuvTek Remix

    Let's start with (for me) more from the most anticipated album of the month.

    The tracks in this blog are remixes. Ought to keep us all going till 21 August!

    The Blog with The Tracks. ; )

  • Thanks for the link, Babs. Will be giving those 2 a listen tomorrow.

    While browsing Amazon.co.uk earlier today for some new releases to get my hands on, I noticed Stéphane Pompougnac's new Hôtel Costes compilation, now at the tenth in the series, is up for pre-order before its release on September 25th.



    I only own 2 in the series, but both, and as I understand it, all of them specialise in the classy lounge / trip-hop / nu-jazz type material. They used to come in digipaks, but they're now housed in snazzy square boxes with models like above decorating the cover and booklet(s). Overall quite a nice package, one that further perpetuates (one of their many) stereotype(s), that the French are classy bastards.

    Exposure - Emmy the Great

    Watch this girl's star rise. She already has over 4,000 listeners in Last.fm and the press have only just started noticing her. If Lily Allen opened the door and Kate Nash barged in and made a noise, then Emmy the Great is the one who calmly saunters in, pulls up a chair, and shows them how it's done.

    Hear three tracks from her forthcoming EP on her MySpace. MIA is about a fatal car crash, thought I'd warn you in advance.

    The style is 'girl folk' with a backbone. Gutsy, bare, observational and bold. (no, girl folk isn't a genre, I just made it up, but you get the idea).

    Pure Groove Records from 20 August.

  • Sunset Rubdown - new album (Random Spirit Lover)

    Good shout on Emmy The Great by the way, have been following her for a while, she's bound to be huge this time next year.

    Sunset Rubdown however, have been sitting on the sidelines for a while, they've been something of a secret project merging in 2005, they don't even have an official website. Yet this is their third record to be released, as far as I know.


    Word of them has spread efficiently, despite the lack of press attention. This is likely to be because of the eye-catching name of Spencer Krug. Eye-catching, as some may recognize him as a member of the acclaimed Wolf Parade. Rubdown was originally a solo project, but he has sinced been joined by Jordan Robson Cramer, Michael Doerksen and Camilla Wynne Ingr. Binding together their musical talent, it's all rather exciting.

    'Random Spirit Lover', their new album should be described simply as, incredible. Defiant and brave, summery yet bleak, if any record released this year will make you go "wow" and reach for the nearest object to hang on to, this could very well be that record.
    Released in October, people who have heard it are already describing it as quite possibly, the album of the year. Let me announce that I am one of those people, and I have that opinion.

    Released October 9th. Keep your eyes peeled.

    Blogs with Tracks: Sunset Rubdown

    Insufferable blog, but there are tracks at the end of it so you don't have to read it all.

    The Blog with The Tracks.

    Includes new song Winged/Wicked Things, unreleased song Jason Believe Me, You Can't Trust Your Dreams, and a couple of others from last year's album, Shut Up I Am Dreaming.

    Sounds very Interpol, Editors, that stable, to me.

    Journal - Gig Review - Reverend and the Makers, by Spectral_Shift

    From the desk of Spectral_Shift, gig review, Reverend and the Makers.

    Extract:

    Reverend (Jon McClure) and his Makers have only been around for a year, have only released one single, yet they played the Other Stage at Glastonbury and their current tour dates are sold out. Their close ties to the Arctic Monkeys have helped but it’s the quality of the performances that keeps people coming back. The music is hard to pin down – a complex combination of guitar and keyboards that produces a brilliant funk rock sound, layered with dirty electro riffs and jittery ska-like beats.

  • Facebook kills Audio for copyright violations

    Facebook completely removed the Audio music-sharing application from its platform last night, saying it violated music copyrights.

    Audio was developed by a third party using Facebook’s platform for developers, and Facebook says Audio violates its newly updated developer terms of service.

    Audio allowed users to upload audio files in the mp3 format, share them with each other and listen to them within Facebook. By the end of last week, it had nearly 750,000 users.

  • If you're not a music industry executive, you probably haven't spent much time perusing the documents from the recent UK Copyright Tribunal's decision on online royalty rates for music publishers. But some people have, and they've turned up evidence that Apple is maybe planning to introduce ad-funded music on iTunes.

    Digital music consultancy Music Ally did the sleuthing, which was published in its latest fortnightly report. Documents released after the UK Copyright Tribunal decided what the royalty rates should be show discussion around what happens when online music services give away tunes supported by advertising. And guess what? Apple was involved in that debate as one of the applicants in the Tribunal.

  • RIP Lee Hazlewood

    Lee Hazlewood

    In 1956 Lee Hazlewood's song The Fool, recorded by Phoenix country singer Sanford Clark, gave Hazlewood, who has died of renal cancer aged 78, his first top 10 hit. The hits were to keep on coming; in 2003 the British band Primal Scream (teamed with Kate Moss) brought out their version of Hazlewood's Some Velvet Morning (1968), and half a century after his first success Hazlewood released a self-proclaimed "final album", Cake Or Death. His most famous song, These Boots Are Made for Walking, was a 1966 British and US No 1 for Nancy Sinatra. With its offbeat hook and sadomasochistic overtones, the work remains a fine example of the aesthetic that ran through a prolific, if unorthodox, career: his fan website hailed him as "the real creative genius of the popular music scene".

    Warner/Chappell Music Acquires Leading Production Music Library Non-Stop Music

    Acquisition Gives Warner/Chappell a Key Presence in a Growing Segment of the Music Publishing Business

    Warner/Chappell Music (WCM), the global music publishing arm of Warner Music Group Corp. today announced that it acquired Non-Stop Music, one of the industry's leading production music library companies. The move enhances WCM's presence in a fast-growing, high-margin segment of the music publishing business and underscores the importance of film, television, Internet and corporate outlets to the music publishing industry. WCM will immediately begin joint marketing of the Non-Stop library to an expanded base of synchronization customers and Warner/Chappell's other musical properties.

    Formed by musicians in 1981, Non-Stop is a leader in the production music library business and has built a library of more than 35,000 song titles that it licenses to film, television, Internet and corporate clients. Non-Stop also operates its own state-of-the-art recording studio and has a stable of musicians it draws upon to compose original film scores, music for film trailers, television theme songs, theme music for corporate films and commercial jingles.

    Investors bear down on Warner Music

    Shares in Warner Music fell to a record low on Monday – more than 60 per cent below their peak for the year – as the last quoted recorded music company became the focus for investors’ bearishness about the industry’s prospects.

    Last month’s decision by Warner, which is due to report third-quarter earnings today, to drop its seven-year pursuit of EMI has raised questions about its prospects in the absence of a merger, which could have provided cost-saving opportunities and built a stronger rival to the larger Universal Music and Sony BMG.

    Its shares, which peaked at $27.24 late last year, were trading at $10.67, down 3 per cent, on Monday, after analysts at Citigroup lowered their price target from $19 to $10 per share.

    Warner is expected to report today that its US market share is at its highest level for a decade, at 20.4 per cent, and its share of revenues coming from digital distribution continues to rise.

    However, such strengths have been overshadowed by continued bad news about CD sales, still the most important part of the recorded music market, and by concerns that Warner may have to pay up to keep some of its most valuable artists.
