#TrackoftheDay: “Black is the Night”

The DamnedUK, 2019 The Damned put out Black is the Night: The Definitive Anthology last year. This new song was on it (an extended version appears on their latest EP) and damn, I just love it. You wouldn’t guess from listening to the song that it was from a band that’s been around in various configurations for forty-four years. amzn_assoc_placement = "adunit0"; amzn_assoc_search_bar = "true"; amzn_assoc_tracking_id = "sleepdeprivation"; amzn_assoc_ad_mode = "man...

K-Prez & J. Depina – “Flawless” (EP Review)

New Jersey spitter K-Prez teamed up with Rhode Island producer J. Depina for a short but sweet EP titled “Flawless.” The project is 5 tracks and runs about 15 minutes, but it is some quality work. K-Prez impresses with his honest street lyricism over some buttery boom-bap instrumentals constructed by J. Depina. Highlights on this project for me were the title track “Flawless” featuring an extremely dope feature from Bless Picasso, and the soulful melodic boom-bap laced “Recoup” where we find K-...

Pat Boone wrote a Rodney King inspired song but shelved it until the 2020 protests. Now it’s gone viral.

As Pat Boone watched the protests and clashes nationwide after George Floyd’s death in police custody in May, the 86-year-old singer thought about a song he’d written but never released nearly 30 years ago following the acquittal of Los Angeles police officers in the beating of Rodney King. “In some ways, it was worse,” Boone says of the protests that erupted in South Los Angeles before spreading to other parts of the city in the days that followed. “From the window in my office, it looked like ...

Apple TV supports 4K YouTube but still no 60fps or HDR

The YouTube app on Apple TV 4K is finally getting support for 4K videos, but for now they’ll be locked at 30 frames per second without HDR. When released in 2017, one of the big drawbacks to the $179 Apple TV 4K was the lack of support for 4K YouTube. Three years later, it seems Apple are playing nice with YouTube’s higher resolution compatible VP9 codec. The Big Sur update due to come to Mac’s later this month is also bringing an update to Safari with support for 4K YouTube. A missin...

Jazz Typefaces Capture the Essence of 100 Iconic Jazz Musicians

In the 1950s and 60s, one record label stood “like a beacon,” writes Robin Kinross at Eye, among a host of Civil Rights era independents that helped jazz “escape the racial-commercial constraints applied by White Americans, and find its own place, unpatronised and relatively free of exploitation.” That label, Blue Note, ushered in the birth of the cool—both cool jazz and its many hip signifiers—as much through graphic design as through its meticulous approach to recording.

Aber trotzdem ist es schon spannend, den Plänen der Sterne auf den Grund zu gehen, findest du nicht? Meistens beschränken wir uns dabei aber auf Liebesdinge. Das ...
