Mark Diamond ‘Steady’

Look out for singer-songwriter Mark Diamond. The Seattle based artist just released the catchy track “Steady” which landed on Apple’s Music Best of the Week Playlist. Diamond notes, ” This song was written, tracked and produced all in one night. There is no better feeling than finishing a record that quick. It takes away having to overthink or doubt certain melodies and lyrics. I like Diamond because he is so determined to make it. He pursued music, writing, recording and producing his own mate...

The Stylophone goes totally luxe with the GEN R-8

Now get ready for the Stylophone as premium boutique instrument. The Stylophone began its story back in 1967, and became one of the iconic electronic musical inventions of the 20th century – its appeal being largely to do with its simplicity and directness. The son of the original inventor, Ben Jarvis, went on to revive instrument under the origi...

Lenovo’s ultraportable speaker is as slim and small as your phone

The Lenovo 700 Ultraportable Bluetooth Speaker is quite literally the most portable one ever. Most portable Bluetooth speakers are portable alright, but they aren’t slip-into-your-pocket portable. Audio drivers tend to have depth/thickness to them, resulting in speakers that may be small and lightweight, but are almost always chunky too, making them ideal for laptop bags, but not pant pockets.Lenovo’s latest offering wants to be the kind of Bluetooth speaker you carry around with you, the way ...

KORG volca modular and volca drum are real – and now we’ve got details

Some things are too good, or too improbable, to be true. Apparently that doesn’t apply to KORG’s volca series. Because if the ultra-compact, affordable modular and drum were exactly what you wished for, well – they’re here. These will look familiar, because images of the top panels of these two pieces of kit hit the Internet in December. The funny thing was, a lot of people responded with “oh there’s no way that modular could be real.” Guess again. The newest volcas are a modeled drum/percu...

Celebrity Doppelgängers That'll Make You Do A Double Take

Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage. It's almost eerie how much some celebrities resemble each other. Just look at the star of Netflix's Sex Education, British actress Maeve Wiley — she looks just like Margot Robbie. Enough so that when you Google her name, Margot Robbie's name pops up right after it. But these two actresses both share high cheekbones, they aren't related at all, and probably haven't even met (yet.) Yet, the two of them could easily share a passport or star in a madcap series of...

A Fender Stratocaster Made Out of 1200 Colored Pencils

Alder and Ash. These woods have traditionally made up the body of the Fender Stratocaster. Crayola colored pencils? They were never part of the mix ... at least until now. Above, Burls Art gives it a go. In nine minutes, they take you through the making and playing of the Crayola Strat, from start to finish. Aficionados, feel free to argue over the tonal qualities of this new fangled creation. Related Content: Behold the First Electric Guitar: The 1931 “Frying Pan” Brian May’s Homemade G...

Master your Roland TR-8S drum machine settings with a plug-in editor

Roland’s TR-8S added loads of parameters for shaping drum kits and effects. Now you can get at all of those without diving through menus with this VST/AU plug-in – and keep your drum machine settings stored with your project. Hardware is great, but it introduces two problems. First, there are inevitably some parameters buried in menus that are hard to reach on the front panel, no matter how many knobs and faders makers add. Second, stuff you do on the hardware is likely to get out of sync with...

The Musical Instruments in Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights Get Brought to Life, and It Turns Out That They Sound “Painful” and “Horrible”

Welcome to The Garden of Earthly Delights. You’ll find no angelic strings here. Those are reserved for first class citizens whose virtuous lives earned them passage to the uppermost heights. Down below, stringed instruments produce the most hellish sort of cacophony, a fitting accompaniment for the horn whose bell is befouled with the arm of a tortured soul. How do we know that's what they sounded like? A group of musicologists, craftspeople and academics from the Bate Collection of Musical...

Philip Glass Finishes His David Bowie Trilogy, Debuting His Lodger Symphony

Sometimes I feel The need to move on So I pack a bag And move on Move on --David Bowie, “Move On” We might have been calling it the Lake Geneva Trilogy, given David Bowie’s recuperative sojourn in Switzerland after the emptiness he felt in L.A. The first album in the Berlin Trilogy, Low, was mostly recorded in France, and the last album of the trilogy, Lodger, in Montreaux in 1979. But they were almost all written in, around, and about Berlin, where Bowie found what he was looking for—a ...

Can Rice Water Actually Make Your Hair Grow Faster? Experts Weigh In

We have a bad habit of seeking instant gratification when it comes to a lot of things. We expect to feel healthier after eating one kale salad for lunch. We check the mirror every 10 minutes to make sure that new face mask is actually working. And if a round of squats doesn't display instant booty-lifting benefits, well, we're likely to fall right off the fitness bandwagon. The point is: When we test a new product, service, or treatment, we often anticipate immediate, life-altering results that...

YouTube Music Poised To Replace Google Play As Android Default Audio Player

A look at the under the hood of a recent YouTube Music app update shows strong evidence that Google may be about to make it the default music player within its Android operating system. The move could help catapult YouTube Music from also-ran to top tier music streamer. Apple guaranteed the success of iTunes and later Apple Music in 2003 by making it the default music player preloaded on all Apple iOS devices. A similar APK teardown in November revealed that YouTube Music was experimen...

Google Doodle, Bluegrass Style

Today’s Google Doodle honors legendary banjo player and stylist Earl Scruggs. Here’s a short essay I posted when Earl Scruggs died. It contains a re-post of an earlier post (15 years ago) about the chance my son had to meet and chat with Scruggs. (My son was 14 at the time — and a fiddle and mandolin player.) I appreciate Google recalling this great artist.   Related posts: Remembering Earl Scruggs My once-a-year bluegrass post: Steve Martin’s Rare Bird Alert Legend sighting
