Let’s foil the suspense…Every now and then the staff misses an album and two reviewers (user or staff) must battle it out. Word for word…A write off settles who gets published as the editorial review… the loser posts their review lower on the page as a user review. It’s been a while since we’ve done one…so enjoy…

Episide 76: Introductions Are In Order

posted February 15, 2011, 8:23 am by Brandon Thompson | Filed Under Podcast | comment 6 Comments

Tags: Living In Darkness, System of a Down, Meantime, Invaders Must Die, Helmet, Iron Maiden, Agent Orange, The Prodigy, System of a Down, The Number of the Beast, Podcast

Welcome once again to the Music Emissions Podcast of the Week: Episode #76. The new voice emerging from the podcast pipes this week is Brandon Thompson. Brandon has been with the staff a little over two years.  His taste is impeccably aggressive and he is quite possibly the next M.E. writer to make a name for himself.

-Editor’s note

  • Song #1: Busting out with some new school beats, here’s the The Prodigy with the title track  from their 2009 release Invaders Must Die.
  • Song #2: Taking a trip back in time, here is the massively underrated 1998 self-titled debut of System of a Down and my favorite track “Spiders”
  • Song #3: Nothing more reminiscent than going all the way back to the birth of Surf Punk.  No one song captured the raw energy better than “Bloodstains” and Agent Orange was the band to make it happen. Off of the 1981 album Living In Darkness.
  • Song #4: In order to make a lasting impression in the music business, you have to be something special. Iron Maiden left that impression over 30 years ago, and from what is arguably the most controversial album of all time, “Run To The Hills” is a time honored classic from 1982′s The Number of the Beast.
  • Song #5: One of the most overlooked bands of the 90′s, Helmet never let a quest for mainstream success get in the way of making damn good music. 1992 saw the release of Meantime, and the song that brought them into the spotlight “Unsung”.

Infographic… How much do artists earn with online music?

posted February 7, 2011, 9:47 am by dscanland | Filed Under Editorial | comment Leave a Comment

Tags: infographic, music sales, spotify, digital sales, itunes

A co-worker passed me this infographic this morning courtesy of the site Information Is Beautiful. Its a few months old but still relevant. Due to all the privacy acts and such popping up protecting music artists from being robbed of their music with BitTorrents and other Peer to peer sharing, the site thought it would be interesting to see how much an artist actually makes from being sold and played online. The amazing thing is sites like Spotify and Last.FM where people can stream unlimited music online hardly pay the artist anything! It’s given me a new respect for the iTunes model and a huge nod to CDBaby for helping artists actually make some money.
