The best record stores in the US

Record store day is this Saturday, April 13, and if you’re reading this, that means that you are likely among the last bastion of badass music fans that actually care about the quality of the sound in your ears. While most cram trebled-out Spotify tunes through Bluetooth headphones, you are curled up on the futon next to a turntable and a pair of speakers drowning in a full spectrum of highs and lows that may have not even been recorded on a digital mixing board. For you, intrepid listener, t...

We compared Spotify, Tidal, and Qobuz, a streaming service that says it has 29 times better sound quality than Spotify — here's how they fared

For music lovers, sound quality is one of the most important things a streaming service can offer. Qobuz, a music app that's new to the US, claims to stream music with sound quality nearly thirty times better than Spotify's. We compared Qobuz's sound with Spotify's and Tidal's, and found that while the difference was noticeable from track to track, it might not be worth the extra cost. Are you happy with the sound quality of your music streaming app? You might not think much about it. But au...

Does Playing Music for Cheese During the Aging Process Change Its Flavor? Researchers Find That Hip Hop Makes It Smellier, and Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” Makes It Milder

Humans began making cheese seven millennia ago: plenty of time to develop an enormous variety of textures, flavors, and smells, and certainly more than enough to get creative about the methods of generating even greater variety. But it seems to have taken all that time for us to come around to the potential of music as a flavoring agent. "Exposing cheese to round-the-clock music could give it more flavor and hip hop might be better than Mozart," report Reuters' Denis Balibouse and Cecile...

Cheese tastes different when it listens to Led Zeppelin, Swiss study finds

A funky new study says that exposing cheese to music changes its aroma and flavor. What’s more, the genre of music matters. Researchers from the Bern University of Arts played music to nine, 22-pound wheels of Emmental cheese.

Favor of cheese altered by music

Maybe you don’t have to go to culinary school to make truly delicious food. Maybe all you have to do is blast music right next to your food, and that’ll do all the work for you. It might sound ridiculous, but it actually works, at least when it comes to cheese. Swiss cheesemaker Beat Wampfler and a team of researchers from Bern University of Arts exposed nine 22-pound wheels of Emmental cheese to endless loops of music, for six straight months. Each wheel “heard” a different sound, from varyi...

Here’s What Happens When You Play Mozart, Hard Rock, Techno, And Hip-Hop To Ripening Swiss Cheese

Last fall, Swiss researchers exposed nine wheels of Emmentaler in an aging cellar to various types of music: classical (Mozart’s Magic Flute), rock (Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”), techno (Vril’s “UV”), hip-hop (A Tribe Called Quest’s “Jazz (We’ve Got)”) ambient music (Yello’s “Monolith”), and, as controls, steady high, medium and low tones and silence. All were on nonstop loops, with mini-transducers transmitting the sounds directly into the cheese wheels. After six months, the wheels we...

SXSW Film Review: ‘Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall’

The rock ‘n’ roll excesses of the ’60s and ’70s are etched into legend. We’re now living through a moment when it seems as if we might one day, you know, be pulling Led Zeppelin tracks from streaming sites because of the scandalous nature of the group’s offstage bacchanals. Yet I somehow doubt it. The […]

The Art Of Marketing Music

For many listeners, music is far more than just sound, and acts as a strong emotional force. This makes music, and the inextricably linked if sometimes adversarial format of radio a uniquely powerful platform for marketing.

Led Zeppelin Superfan and Documentary Subject Picks Jimmy Page’s Best Live Licks

Akio Sakurai grew up idolizing Led Zeppelin in his small hometown in Japan and would eventually move to Tokyo and become “Mr. Jimmy,” adopting the guitar chops and persona of guitar virtuoso Jimmy Page.

Muse brings lasers, cyborgs and lots of neon to The Forum

In the weeks leading up to the kick-off of its Simulation Theory World Tour, English rock trio Muse shared just a few quick glimpses of what its latest technologically advanced and arena primed setup would look like.

18 Valentine's Day Gifts That Aren't Obvious

Finding a meaningful gift for Valentine's Day always seems trickier than buying presents for any of the other holidays of the year. They need to check off the boxes for being thoughtful and heartfelt; they have to fall in line with whatever obscure relationship stage you and your significant other fall under; and most of all, they need to have that special personal touch that reminds them just why you love them (and just why they love you too). On top of all that, you also want a gift that will...
