What Are The Rules For Politicians Using Music In Their Campaigns?

The campaigns can buy licensing packages from music rights organisations like BMI and ASCAP, that give them legal access to millions of songs. Some, including The Rolling Stones, have opted out of those deals – but many artists are taken by surprise when their music becomes a politician’s theme song. – BBC

Researchers: Hit Pop Music Increasingly Relies On Harmonic Surprise

The researchers found that the most popular songs had a high level of harmonic surprise, including the use of relatively rare chords in verses, for example, instead of just sticking with, say, a standard C major chord progression (C, G, F). The best songs follow up that harmonic surprise with a catchy common chorus. – Ars Technica

The PinkPantheress Debates Have Already Begun

There may be no more definitively 2021 musical artist than PinkPantheress. Huge on TikTok, just barely past her teens, drenched in nostalgia for Y2K-era dance music, founded on overt sampling, intersecting with prevailing movements like bedroom pop and hyperpop and the pop-punk revival — this still mostly anonymous 21-year-old university student from South London could not be more zeitgeisty if she tried. And with the release of her debut mixtape to hell with it this Friday, she becomes the late...

Die North-Face-Jacke, von der wir einfach nicht genug bekommen

Jennifer Aniston at the Eccles Theatre in Park City, Utah (Photo by George Pimentel/WireImage) Spätestens im frühen Oktober sichtest du die erste North-Face-Jacke in freier Wildbahn – meist eine Daunen-, manchmal auch eine Fleecejacke. Spätestens dann geht es auch in der Promiwelt damit los. (Siehe: Kendall Jenners klassische braune Nuptsejacke an einem regnerischen Tag in New York.) Kurz darauf taucht die Jacke überall auf – an Models auf und fernab des Catwalks, Streetstyle-Fotograf:inn...

Ist „Slow Dating“ einen Versuch wert?

Die Pandemie setzte dem Dating-Leben der 24-jährigen Ola ein jähes Ende und läutete eine neue Phase für sie ein. Vor Corona verbrachte sie täglich Stunden damit, nach links und rechts zu swipen, sich mit Menschen zu treffen, von denen sie eigentlich nicht überzeugt war, und sich zu zwingen, „nicht aufzugeben“, um den berühmt-berüchtigten „Einen“ oder die berühmt-berüchtigte „Eine“ zu finden. Seit den letzten eineinhalb Jahren hat sich aber etwas an ihrer Einstellung verändert: Sie hat beschlosse...

‘My God, we were mobbed so much!’ – how we made Overload, by Sugababes

‘Some people thought our vocals sounded sarcastic. I felt like I was just being a normal teenager, moody as hell’We made Overload at Mayfair Studios in Primrose Hill. We were running between two rooms, recording the poppier stuff for our debut album, One Touch, with Matt Rowe, who was famous for his work with the Spice Girls. And then, in the other room, working on Overload with [co-producer/writer] Cameron McVey and his team. The writing process was pretty organic, everyone adding lyrics and me...

7 neue, sinnliche Parfums, die dir Lust auf Herbst machen

Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass ich vom Sternzeichen Waage bin und der Herbst meine Lieblingsjahreszeit ist, aber: Meiner Meinung nach gibt es keine bessere Zeit, um nach einem neuen Parfum zu shoppen. Im Herbst geht es schließlich ohnehin schon sehr stark um Düfte – um den Geruch von einem Lagerfeuer an einem kalten Abend, von frischem Regen, von heißem Kaffee, von einem Spaziergang im Wald oder von Pumpkin Spice Latte.   Von Essen und Trinken bis hin zu unserem Bad-Ritual: Wir nutzen Düfte, um...

Jeff Tweedy – “C’mon America” & “UR-60 Unsent”

The latest Sub Pop Singles Club 7″ features two new solo tracks from prolific Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy. The A-side is “C’mon America,” a wry classic rocker “from an unreleased group of songs with mostly sci-fi lyrics.” The B-side is “UR-60 Unsent,” one of those drowsy, deconstructed Tweedy ballads, billed as “a pitiful tale of an unsent lovesick mixtape, taken from a separate batch of unreleased songs with mostly pitiful lyrics.” Both songs would make sense in Wilco’s recent Star Wars/Schmil...

Ich habe meine Haare roségold gefärbt & will nie mehr zurück

Bei meinen Beauty-Entscheidungen war ich schon immer vorsichtig. Ich habe keine Tattoos oder Piercings (abgesehen von meinen Ohrlöchern), und auch bei meinen Haaren und meinem Make-up neige ich eher zur Zurückhaltung statt zur Experimentierfreude. Und obwohl ich bisher immer auf Nummer sicher gegangen bin, spiele ich schon seit Langem mit der Idee, mir meine blonden Haare pink zu färben. Kannst du dich überhaupt als Millennial bezeichnen, wenn du nicht irgendwann mal verträumt Juergen Tellers...
