Real and Perceived Scarcity as a Marketing Strategy

I’ve noticed that more organizations are using scarcity as a marketing strategy. Some examples: Apple announces the new iPhone 13 models to much hoopla, but you must wait to get one; clothing companies announce limited edition product drops and invite customers to join a wait list; hot restaurants limit the number of reservations that can be booked in advance.

Orchestras And The Vaccine Requirement

Penelope Isles – “Terrified”

Penelope Isles, the Brighton-based indie-rock group whom we named one of the Best New Bands Of 2019 thanks to songs like the sprawling epic “Gnarbone,” are blessing us with their Dave Fridmann-mixed sophomore album Which Way To Happy in just a couple of weeks. We’ve already heard early tracks “Sailing Still,” “Iced Gems,” and “Sudoku.” And now they’re sharing “Terrified,” which the band’s Jack Wolter says is “about those days when you’re dying inside but have to pop out to the shop, bumping into...

Ron Mercer Collected 2000 Music Instruments. Why?

“I get bored or start counting the same thing twice, so I’d say probably close to 2,000.” Two narrow walkways allow Mercer or his visitors to wander through the collection which, despite looking a bit chaotic, is meticulously categorized. –CBC

Joywave’s Drummer Received A Package Of Scorpions In The Mail

Rochester trio Joywave might be known for songs like “It’s A Trip” and “Tongues,” not to mention touring with the Killers and Bleachers, but these days they are likely to be known for something else: scorpions. For context, drummer Paul Brenner had ordered a T-shirt and some shoes from an internet seller in Hawaii, and when it got to his address in Rochester, it was filled with scorpions.

Brandi Carlile “Surprised And Disappointed” Grammys Are Categorizing Her New Single As Pop, Not Roots

When Brandi Carlile’s team submitted her In These Silent Days single “Right On Time” to the Recording Academy for 2022 Grammy consideration, they submitted for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best American Roots Song, Best American Roots Performance, and Best Music Video, Short Form. Surprising Carlile, the song was not accepted into any of the American roots categories.

Tasha – “Bed Song 1”

Dieser Lifehack repariert einen eingerissenen Nagel

Stell dir vor, du hast deine Fingernägel wochenlang rigoros gepflegt – Handcreme, Nagelhaut-Pflegeöl, das volle Programm. Und es hat sich gelohnt: Die Spitzen sind schön lang, weiß, stark und ebenmäßig. Doch dann passiert es. Du bleibst irgendwo hängen, und zack – schon ist deine ganze Mühe dahin und ein Nagel eingerissen. Ist der Riss recht weit oben, kannst du den Nagel einfach runterfeilen; ansonsten bleibt dir eigentlich fast nichts anderes übrig, als den Nagel abzuschneiden und quasi wieder...

Stream Jade Dust’s Furious, Passionate Self-Titled EP

The fabled Revolution Summer of Washington, DC punk rock — the 1986 era where veterans of the first-wave hardcore scene started to look inward and make more adventurous music — has inspired thousands of bands over the decade. One of the most recent bands who’s clearly in love with that whole Revolution Summer sound is Jade Dust, from Santa Barbara, who play hardcore with all the messy, clangorous, melodic passion as their DC heroes. Jade Dust are so in love with that sound, in fact, that they go...

New pictures show how Apple kept the design of the first iPod a secret by making prototypes look ridiculous

Getty Apple's wildly popular iPod first launched in October 2001. A rare prototype of a near-final iPod model was recently shown off. The device is massive and looks nothing like the final product - that was intentional, to hide the design from Apple's own staff. Before former Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled what would become the world's most popular portable music player, Apple's iPod was a massive, unwieldy device that looked nothing like the final product.It featured the ...

"The Theme For Spirit Halloween" is now an epic musical trilogy, and it's great

In September 2020, songwriter Nick Lutsko wrote a catchy little jingle called "Theme for Spirit Halloween," a sort-of love letter to Spirit Halloween stores. Here's how he describes what happened next: This is the Spark Notes version. And the whole, I guess, kind of joke about that song was it's a theme for Spirit Halloween, but really it was more just a ploy for them to pay me for writing. — Read the rest

Anxious – “In April”

The Connecticut band Anxious are a fun little puzzle: They’re a hardcore band, but they don’t play hardcore. The members of Anxious all come from the hardcore world, and they mostly tour and play shows in that world. (The band shares members with One Step Closer, who just released the great debut album This Place You Know.) But Anxious’ sound pulls more from ’00s emo and pop-punk, though bits of hardcore sometimes show through. Their sound is sweet and sloppy and extremely catchy, and there’s a ...

Adele Announces First Live Shows In Five Years

Adele hasn’t given a proper full-scale live show since June of 2017, when she played a two-night stand at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Watch Bruce Springsteen Play “The River,” Talk About Being Friends With Obama, & Show Off His Born To Run Guitar On Colbert

Bruce Springsteen has had a whole lot going on lately. His Broadway show came back. He made a podcast and a book with Barack Obama. He’s made recent collaborations with the Killers and John Mellencamp and Dion. He’s getting ready to release The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concert, a live film and album recorded 42 years ago at Madison Square Garden. His daughter just won a damn silver medal at the Olympics.

Stream German Screamo Band Masada’s New Album II

Masada are a screamo band from Germany whose particular twist on the subgenre errs on the side of scraping, muscular indie-rock, with moments of melodious quiet giving way to explosive stomping and howling. After dropping their debut way back in 2016, Masada have been working on their sophomore LP since a 2018 trip to Japan. After some COVID-related delays, II is finally here. The album is as furiously entertaining as you could hope, raw and combustible but captured in crisp clarity. Check it ou...

Wilco – “Don’t Let Me Down” & “Dig A Pony” (The Beatles Covers)

Yesterday, at the behest of a giant corporation, Katy Perry covered the Beatles. Today, Wilco are doing something similar. Perry’s version of “All You Need Is Love” is part of a Gap ad campaign. You might not hear Wilco’s versions of “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Dig A Pony” in any TV commercials, but their covers are coming out today as Amazon Music’s [RE]DISCOVER campaign, which is focusing on the Let It Be-era Beatles this month. There’s not a whole lot of functional difference between what both ...

The Posies Break Up Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Ken Stringfellow

Three women have come forward to accuse Ken Stringfellow, co-leader of the Posies, of various forms of sexual misconduct, including physical assault, manipulation, and forcible sexual assault that sure sounds a whole lot like rape. Stringfellow denies all of the accusations, but the Posies, Stringfellow’s band since 1986, are breaking up. Stringfellow’s bandmates in the Posies, including longtime co-leader Jon Auer, say that they believe Stringfellow’s accusers and that they will no longer work ...

Wir haben Dr. Sheri Jacobson, eine pensionierte Psychotherapeutin mit über 17 Jahren Berufserfahrung und Gründerin der Therapie-Plattform, um ihren Rat zu unseren privaten Sorgen gebeten.  Frage: Egal, wie sehr ich mich auch darum bemühe – ich kann mich einfach nicht für irgendein Hobby begeistern.
