Stream: Jane Holiday, ‘All Yours’

More than any song on last year’s EPs, Jane Holiday’s new single “All Yours” seems lifted from the remainders of some ’70s/’80s Smash Hits compilation. The Doobie Brothers, Billy Ocean and Hall & Oates all made it. But Jane Holiday (aka songwriter Raj Jain)? Oh, he wasn’t born yet. The sleek, joyous new single, produced by Ryan Spraker (Eli “Paperboy” Reed), has a magnificently squishy backstory, too. “‘All Yours’ is a classic tale of unrequited love,” the singer-songwriter says. “A song about m...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Suhr Strat Classic SSH w/SSCII system

Author: Drew7 Posted: Mon Feb 03, 2020 11:19 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 2 It's been discussed here before, so a forum search would probably help... but if you're just removing one set of singlecoils and putting in another, I can't think of any reason WHY you shouldn't be able to do this on your own. Just desolder the pickup wires and resolder the new ones in their place. IIRC, it's a problem if you want to try to use some sort of hum-cancelling singlecoil or mini humbucker, but otherwise it's...

DJ and producer Jauz talks Twitch collaborations and ‘Baby Shark’ before Shrine Expo Hall show

DJ and dance music producer Jauz had already made a name for himself with his own singles, high-profile collaborations and remixes before his 2018 full-length debut with “The Wise and the Wicked,” an ambitious concept album set in a near-future dystopia amid extreme income inequality. Its music alternated dance club beats with more experimental sounds, all in the heady service of a plot that pitted two rival castes for the allegiances of the underclass masses — the wise on one side with chill vi...

Ireland’s Youth Orchestras Are Growing

The orchestras that get most of the publicity are just the tip of the iceberg. And they are seriously outnumbered by a less-heralded cohort. Just as the great teams in sport are outnumbered by the organisations that operate in local communities or provide an outlet for youth activities.  – Irish Times

Louis Tomlinson’s Walls Sadly Stops Short Of A Full-Blown Britpop Revival

Since parting ways, the members of One Direction have all carved out their own place in the pop music firmament. Zayn Malik split before the British boy band's final album, 2015's Made In The A.M., and immediately banished himself to some hyper-sexualized adult contemporary netherworld. Niall Horan became a folksy soft-rocker … More »

Stream: Radical Face, ‘Reveries’

Under the name Radical Face, Florida native Ben Cooper has been weaving mesmerizing tales since the mid-2000s. Most notable was last decade’s album trilogy “The Family Tree,” an opus of orchestrated folk music telling the story of a fictional family, the Northcotes — songs that were powerful allegories, powerfully told. The album that launched the music career of the onetime aspiring pro skateboarder, though, was 2007’s “Ghost.” It was made in a tool shed in Cooper’s backyard and became a cult c...

Paul Simon explains his song "Mrs. Robinson" to Dick Cavett (1970)

I'm really loving these old clips from The Dick Cavett Show on YouTube. Here's a 5-minute clip of Paul Simon telling Cavett about his music making process, his involvement in The Graduate, and how he wrote "Mrs. Robinson." This is as good a time as any to share a theory about The Graduate that my late friend Mike Vodneck told me his high school teacher had about why Mrs. Robinson was willing to destroy her marriage to keep Ben from dating her daughter, Elaine. It's because Ben and Elaine were...
