Man Deep – “Big Dreams” (Lyric Video)

“Big Dreams” is a new single by Melbourne based Hip Hop artist Man Deep. While studying Music production at SAE institute Australia Man Deep was going through some really rough time. Working two jobs to pay for the studies and making music alongside he rarely had any time or money left to spend on his own. He discusses in the lyrics about him surviving on just peanut butter and breads. Linkin Park, Eminem, Slaine and Vinnie Paz were the main inspirations for this track. The track also fea...

Black Midi – “Sweater”

By the time Black Midi first made it Stateside just about a year ago, they'd already fueled a lot of buzz -- partially because of their enigmatic qualities, but primarily because of their jaw-dropping live show, which had already been a fixture in the London scene for a bit.

This microtonal guitar made from Lego sounds incredible (video)

They always said that the limits to what we could create with Lego depended on the limits of our imagination. The internet only serves to prove that more and more with every creative mind that shares their fascinating and sometimes ingenious creations. This is one of the most impressive I have seen in a while. Based on his young son’s own idea (what a family), Turkish creative and microtonal guitar-lover Tolgahan Çoğulu created this amazing Lego guitar neck with the help of a friend and hi...

AI upscaling makes this Lumiere Bros film look new – and you can use the same technique

A.I.! Good gawd y’all – what is it good for? Absolutely … upscaling, actually. Some of machine learning’s powers may prove to be simple but transformative. And in fact, this “enhance” feature we always imagined from sci-fi becomes real. Just watch as a pioneering Lumiere Brothers film is transformed so it seems like something shot with money from the Polish government and screened at a big arty film festival, not 1896. It’s spooky. It’s the work of Denis Shiryaev. (If you speak...

How The Right Conductor And The Right Orchestra Can Make A Statement

Alex Ross: “For the most part, the classical-music world is in need of conductors with broad horizons, who can guide audiences from a passive worship of the past to an active awareness of the present. The rote repetition of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Mahler ultimately does those composers no favors. But we also need conductors who know how to revitalize the grand tradition—and orchestras that can respond in kind. At the moment, Pittsburgh is one of the few places on the international ...

Data: Pop Songs Have Become Sadder. Why?

English-language popular songs have become more negative. The use of words related to negative emotions has increased by more than one third. Let’s take the example of the Billboard dataset. If we assume an average of 300 words per song, every year there are 30,000 words in the lyrics of the top-100 hits. In 1965, around 450 of these words were associated with negative emotions, whereas in 2015 their number was above 700. – Aeon

Stream: CMON, ‘Zoo’

The new single from L.A.-based duo CMON feels like going on a road trip in your head, scenery flashing by in a polychromatic blur, insistently propulsive but at the same time lulling. “Zoo,” out today, is the follow-up to “Coo” (no, all their song titles do not rhyme) melds the duo’s affection for ’80s FM radio fare and dance music, adding brushstrokes of atmospherics to make it their own brand of psychedelic pop. The new song comes with the news that CMON’s debut album “Confusing Mix Of Nations...

Samplr, the genius sampling app for iPad, is also getting a long-awaited update

Samplr, one of the best music-making apps on iOS, is getting its first update since 2014. And how about that timing.

They’re both deeply intuitive, immediate apps ideal for live performance. But there was a long, bleak period where neither got updates – before this week, Bord...

Premiere: Small Forward, ‘Most of You’

L.A. mellow fellows Small Forward have made their mark with a host of home-recorded material — down-tempo psych-pop that tugs at the heartstrings and gently pulls the listener into reveries of the past. Plaintive and pretty, their DIY recordings have suffered nothing for texture and detail. Now the trio — Rounak Maiti, Michael Stevenson and Campbell Scott — are prepping their first full-length album, and “Most of You” (out today) is the first single. It’s a wistful look back at a teenage love af...
