Taking Back Sunday

u34n_ScreenShot20141110at115227AM

Influential rock band Taking Back Sunday has debuted a fiery new video for their fan favorite track “Better Homes And Gardens” today. The track is featured on the band’s latest album, Happiness Is, which is on sale this week at iTunes for $4.99 and available from Hopeless Records. The song can also be found on the recent reissue, Happiness Is: The Complete Recordings, that includes additional tracks from the studio session.

Known for their striking and imaginative videos, Taking Back Sunday’s latest is no disappointment. Directed by DJay Brawner (Panic! At The Disco, Refused) of Anthem Films, Inc and shot in Greensboro, NC, “Better Homes And Gardens” is staged around a burning house set to the band’s memorable song. For the ambitious shoot they enlisted the help of Greensboro Fire Department’s Battalion Chief Dwayne Church and a crew of recruits to help control the blaze.

Interview: Rangleklods

In a day and age when the importance of the visual elements of art and the almighty video seem to go by the wayside more often and not, it’s refreshing there are still artists willing to buck the trend. Taking full of advantage of SXSW’s ability to gather artists from around the world for a week of musical cyclone activity, I took the opportunity to connect with the Danish duo Esben Nørskov Andersen and Pernille Smith-Sivertsen, Rangelklods. Coming across the addicting single “lost u” off their new sophomore album ‘Straitjacket’ which is out TODAY, I loved the electro house/new wave track immediately.

Setting out an early 2015 goal to get some international travel stamps on my passport in the name of music, I accepted the invite to head north of the border for 2015′s Canadian Music Week. As a writer who feels it’s crucial to see artist performances frequently and get out of my comfort zone to explore new music scenes in different cities, CMW in T-Dot was a must. Armed with the successes and failures of my two SXSW chaotic experiences, I knew jamming 1000+ bands and events into a packed schedule newly expanded five more days, required a mix of planning and flexibility when shows fill to capacity. When this happens, frustration builds as media wristbands and fest badges alike prove futile.

Review: Selah Sue in Milan

posted May 8th, 2015 by Colasanti Chiara | Filed under: Music News | 0

Selah Sue live in Milan
With one listen of “Raggamuffin”, you understand why Selah Sue’s name sounds familiar. In Italy, we discovered her in summer of 2011 in Italy, establishing a niche among soul lovers. In 2012, Rolling Stone magazine named Selah Sue as one of the new faces of 2012, with more than 400.000 downloads were counted in one week when her debut album released in the US. Read more…

Jazz Street: Billie Holiday

posted May 7th, 2015 by Nathaniel Lathy | Filed under: Music News | 0

billie holidayIt’s hard to imagine anyone singing these songs better than Billie Holiday. O.K., maybe there are people who could sing better. Try convincing Doris Day or Ella Fitzgerald fans Billie was better. Still after listening to Rebecca Ferguson do a commendable job of singing Billie on an album, it’s not the same as listening to the great jazz singer herself. Not everyone finds themselves embracing Holiday. For one thing, she goes back before the rock era, which brings about some reservations. But those people aren’t finding much interest in this regular feature, so they’re not probably not reading this (There is hope for a few converts). She had plenty of success in the 1940s. Her health and personal life caused problems for her in the ’50s. This makes it too sad of an experience for some to listen to her songs. You can miss out on a lot of good music worrying about the singer’s personal lives too much. She died at age 44 in 1959. Her recording career spanned 24 years. Collections continue to be released nearly 60 years after her life and career ended.

GWAR

UeVEVc7

Let There Be GWAR is a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of the most outrageous shock rock band of all time. GWAR fans will cherish this oversized hardcover book chock full of fascinating first-hand accounts and rare, never-before-seen photographs. The book follows the band from the mid-1980s, known in GWAR lore as the “Dim Time,” when the group came together at a derelict dairy building in Richmond, Virginia, through the 1990s and 2000s, when the band spread across the face of the planet like a plague. This book is a record and testament to all that is GWAR, the band whoredefined the meaning of performance in rock music with their outlandish costumes and intense theatrical performances. A GWAR show is more than a rock concert; it is an immersive experience, featuring hilarious storylines, absurd live gore effects, and hundreds of gallons of blood and other fluids sprayed on an eager audience. Let There Be GWAR takes you backstage at these performances, a tour of the GWAR kingdom in photos, band posters, ephemera, production sketches and interviews, that chronicle the band’s albums, comics and videos in a blood-stained hardbound tome. Bohabs the world over, will delight in the wretched world of GWAR through the pages of this, the most monstrous book since The Necronomicon.
