Article 13 Finalized And It Will Change The Music Industry

EU negotiators have agreed on the final text of the new sweeping Copyright Directive in the Digital Single Market, including language on the contentious Article 13 clause. The finalization of the text was one of the last roadblocks to the approval of the directive by the European Parliament and presaged the commencement of the final stages of negotiation after EU member states voted to use a deal between France and Germany as the basis of the agreement.

Maggie Rogers 'Heard It in a Past Life' But She's Okay Now

Maggie Rogers doesn't know who she is on her debut full-length release, Heard It in a Past Life. The dozen self-penned songs reveal she's consumed by questions of personal identity, but she doesn't want to commit to being any particular self. That is due in part to Rogers' backstory as a Pharrell discovery and YouTube sensation based on a class project at New York University. This major label release is prima facie evidence that she is now fully-formed. People will form opinions about her. S...

More people are heading to streaming services than ever for their music fix and now they’re paying for it more. There is no doubt that music streaming is massive but for a long time it’s the access to unlimited music for free that made it so appealing.

Mads Mikkelsen's Inimitable Talent for Silent Acting Compels the Survival Story in 'Arctic'

None If there's an actor working today who's able to command the immediate emotional presence of silent cinema, it's probably the striking Dane, Mads Mikkelsen. With his beautiful facial bone structure and the rigid composure of a dancer or gymnast (he was, in fact, both before his acting career took off), Mikkelsen has made an impressively versatile and long-lasting career out of saying very little. Although American audiences likely know him mostly from the grim and gorgeous NBC TV series, Ha...

Why One Musician Believes Article 13 Is Disaster For Independent Artists

Music, copyright, and the internet have a long and sordid past together, but the internet also has been greatly beneficial to independent artists.

R. Kelly Is Shopping New Album, But Who Will Release It?

R. Kelly is looking for a home for a new finished album, according to multiple sources. The controversial rapper was dropped by longtime label RCA/Sony recently, after multiple accounts of sexual abuse, including with minors. But who would risk the wrath of the #MuteRKelly movement and actually sign him? Opinions are mixed, but in an industry known to often put profits over morality, it seems likely that someone would take the leap. After all, Kelly is one of the best-selling music art...

Visualizing the Bass Playing Style of Motown’s Iconic Bassist James Jamerson: “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “For Once in My Life” & More

As part of Motown’s Funk Brothers house band, James Jamerson was the bubbling bass player behind hundreds of hit records from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, and plenty more. His licks duck and dive and weave like Ali but never get in the way of the melody or the rest of the band. Paul McCartney was an early fan, but for the general public, Jamerson was not a household name for decades--Motown never listed the Wrecking Crew in its credits--until much l...
