Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 27

posted April 23rd, 2014 by CharlesMartel | Filed under: Music News, Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | 0

I have been asked in the past, not the least by Mrs Martel, why music is so important to me. I can only explain in the most general terms, that it was what I grew up with. Music spoke to me and said things about me in ways in which I could not. Music represented to me something which was completely my own and no outside power could control. I could get in trouble at school or at home for not following rules, but no power on Earth could compel me to stop liking Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones or whoever. As the years passed, music reinforced self-image. A few months ago there was a documentary on BBC4 about the history of the vinyl album. One commentator, a DJ, said that on walking into a person’s home he could immediately tell what sort of person lived there simply by looking at what was in his album collection. I look at my album collection and realise that what it says about me is pretty accurate.

Closer and closer we come.

Interview: Little Daylight’s Matt Lewkowicz

posted April 22nd, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, General Interest, Interviews | 0


It’s no surprise the future remains bright for synth pop remixers and infectious “Overdose” hitmakers Little Daylight. Formed in 2012, this Brooklyn band’s racked up the accolades (check out their Passion Pit, Ra Ra Riot, The Neighbourhood and new Sky Ferreira remixes), quickly garnering “watch” buzz with their ‘Tunnel Vision’ EP and scored a deal with Capitol Records. Prepping for their full-length label debut ‘Hello Memory’ which should arrive just in time to provide a soundtrack for summer, I connected with guitarist and keyboardist Matt Lewkowicz on a break from this recent tour to chat about how they celebrated their signing, their recording process for their new album, random penis green room drawings and how awkward and rad hooping in an indie band basketball league would be.

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 26

posted April 16th, 2014 by CharlesMartel | Filed under: Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | 0

Of course there are some who valiantly fight against this major label hegemony. Indeed, the Enemies List label states that it declares war on the majors. Independent record labels do their best and labels such as Cherry Red, Renascent, Rhino and the like specialise in reissuing lost classics. But they cannot take on the financial clout of the big companies. Individual bands also try by putting out their music for free on their own websites. But they are fighting a losing battle. What is needed is a new musical revolution. In the seventies, punk caught the UK record industry very badly out. The latter failed to appreciate the impact would have and seriously underestimated it. They thought they had recovered by the end of the seventies but then along came synth pop to catch them out again. EMI nearly went bust – twice. The time has come to turn away from major label output. Find what you can. Promote what you can. Avoid the major labels in favour of the indie. If we can drive these tottering dinosaurs out of business then musical creativity will be saved. Do your bit!

And now we move into the 400’s.

Interview: Alfredo Rodriguez

posted April 14th, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, General Interest, Interviews | 0


Garnering high praise from esteemed musical legend Quincy Jones, calling any musician “one of the most prolific and gifted jazz pianists of the 21st century”, is no small feat. Coming across this quote, I immediately needed to know more about Cubano master composer and pianist Alfredo Rodriguez. As the notes from the first piece I played simultaneously glided and firework shattered across my eardrums, shades of musical genius and discussions of the “next jazz great” emerge. Unpredictable yet intricate. Random yet delightfully purposeful.

Sunday’s Best: Oasis

posted April 13th, 2014 by Brian Rutherford | Filed under: Sunday's Best | 0

Back in the day, when this place was crawling with forums and chats about random acts of music, we used to poll ourselves to see which release by an artist not only set them atop of the industry but stapled them in as musical gods.

What is your favorite Oasis album?

Meme: How About Some Judas Priest?

I bet the song is playing in your head right now…talk about a twisted ear worm. Musicmeme2

The rake is metal, so I guess the “metal god” term still applies.
