REWIND #2 – Reporting Music Revolutions

Posted by Molli Fire on Sunday, 17June07

This week was only 7 days long, yet I have 11 excellent posts to rewind today! It’s been a great week for music news! Before I get right down to the nitty gritty, I want to throw out a juicy tidbit of info that I have been mulling over. For awhile now, I have been wanting to move this site to its own domain. It needs to happen at some point, and I want to do it before this site builds up too far. The only huge difference you will notice by coming to this site, is that the posts on the front page will be teasers. You know, the kind that cut off after a paragraph and you have to click the “Read More” to see the entire post. Well, clicking that read more will take you to the full post on the new site. All other buttons on this site will remain active, with internal links pointing to the new site. The biggest difference for RSS subscribers will be that you might need to subscribe to a new feed so that you can continue to get the full posts in your email or feed reader. I will post an announcement when the feed changes.

So just be watching for the switch! And with that out of the way, on to this week’s REWIND! Just remember, this is by no means all the posts for the week. This is merely a roundup of some of the better stories that deserve to be highlighted. The biggest news stories of the week often do not get mentioned here. To see the rest of this week’s news, simply head to the home page and work your way backwards through time. Either way you choose your adventure, HAVE FUN!

My absolute favorite post of the entire week is about the Young@Heart Chorus:

Rockin On Heaven’s Door

These senior citizens are not just sitting around waiting for senility. They are actively embracing it with Rock N Roll attitude! If you look at nothing else this week, definitely watch the video on that post….

Righteous Hip Hop From Rawkus Records

This post brings us all the way back to the beginning of the week, but I wanted to feature it right away. Mr. J Medeiros has taken a detour from his work with The Procussions and has completed a solo album, Of Gods And Girls. It’s not due out until July 16th, but I will be interviewing Mr. Medeiros on Tuesday. I would be happy to include any thoughtful questions from you, so use the comments box under that post if you have any. Read that post, then ask questions, see? This is your big chance! I will post the interview results on Wednesday or Thursday.

Replicating Bjork

Bjork is a universe unto herself. I imagine her as having her own language and her own technology that she runs on faerie magic. I have thought of her making faeries dance on electronic circuits and the result of their dance steps is what we call Bjork music. Well, an article written by her tech director of 10 years, Alan Pollard, completely dispels this notion. She uses all the same fancy hardware and software that other majors in the music industry use and it’s his job to fit it all onto her laptop for tours. If you like to read about that kind of thing, click over to this post for a great profile on the backend of Bjork’s mischief. Also in this post is a link to Dummy mag which is a brilliant color glossy magazine that you read online. It has a mess of great artists featured, and one of them is Bjork looking especially impish, and well, 5 years old. Check it out if you like all things Bjork.

Manic M.I.A.

M.I.A. is still an epileptic’s worse nightmare. She launched an updated website design that probably physically hurt the person who made it, yet has valuable information contained within. Maybe just wear your stunner shades to view it. The big M.I.A. news this week is her new “Boyz” video complete with its own behind the scenes footage. Jump into this post to watch the videos. In the Bjork post ^^ it’s announced that M.I.A. will open 2 Bjork concerts- the ones in Nimes France.

Rockin Fratellis Retain Self-Respect

The Fratellis turned down Golden Balls Beckham in a bold move to retain their self-respect. The result won them the respect and adoration of many newly-impressed fans… Fratellis 1 Beckham 0

Beastie Boys Returning To Root Down

The punk/jazz thing was a return their roots, so this is back to the b-boy thing. Either way, the Beastie Boys have announced a hip hop revival and a small US tour. The rest of the summer will see the trio switching between drums and drummachines. Maybe it’s a midlife crisis thing. US tour dates behind the jump.

Rockin Robot Flick

Speaking of coming to the US, Daft Punk‘s android movie, Electroma, will finally be screened in N. America. Unfortunately, not many places will host the rare, short film. LA and Miami are the only US stops. Miami? Jump in to see more info plus a teaser video.

Reduce Reuse Recycle and ROCK!

I’m actually just jumping all over the past with this REWIND, in no particular order. Here is some particularly great news for NYC: Brooklyn Vegan has teamed up with Solar 1 to create this year’s Citysol event! July12-15th, you can learn how to be more green, qualify for free beer, rock out to wicked bands like Les Savy Fav, and check out super cool art installations. Jump to this post for more info on this excellent event that is entirely solar and biodiesel powered. A big thank you to Brooklyn Vegan for participating!

Restriction Free Music!

EMI is still turning the music industry and RIAA upside down with its DRM-free catalog. In addition to the Apple iChoons store and Amazon’s upcoming music venture, EMI have now added their restriction-free digital downloads to PassAlong which also oversees online stores such as fyi. The best part is that PassAlong will carry 320kbps mp3s which is a higher bit-rate encoding, which means a higher quality download, and better product.

Retired? Not yet!

Wiley is having quite a retirement party, and there is no sign of it slowing down any time soon. His send-off album is out now, and I bet it’s already had some subwoofers working overtime! He has a new video out now for the song “Mistakes” and is having a record release party in London this week. So, I have 2 links instead of one for this last installment:
Grime and Dubstep Parties – which includes some Mary Anne Hobbs curated events, Skream, Vex’d, Ben Sharpa & Konfab, and many more. Plus, the Wiley retirement party I mean record release party with JME, Boy Better Know types rollin deep.
“Mistakes” video – the latest off of Playtime Is Over.

 

 

A’ight, that’s all folks. Jump in and have fun. Fresh news comin atchya tomorrow. Thanks for reading!

This week’s news is brought to you by the letter R

Bjork Technology + M.I.A. To Open In France

Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 14June07

Bjork! Bjork! Bjork! Dang nothing happened. I thought maybe I could conjure up the faerie queen. Well, she’s probably to busy right now to be conjured. She’s still touring and doing all kinds of press.bjorkus.jpg

For starters, you can find a fabulous interview with Bjork in the amazing online magazine Dummy Mag. It’s a virtual magazine that you actually turn the pages of. I love these tree-free magazines! Her interview is on page 66, but you might not want to skip ahead. There are articles/interviews with Bonde do Role, Justice, Maccabees, Dizzee Rascal, Skull Disco and more with lots of big glossy looking photos. Surprisingly it loads super fast. I need to learn that trick. Must be a flash thing.

Over on the opposite side of the web (literally, from zmag.co.uk to apple.com) Alan Pollard profiled the technical arrangement of Volta for Apple Pro. Alan Pollard has an insider’s perspective as Bjork’s technical director for a full 10 years. He must be pretty good at his job. He’s in charge of the technical aspects of her music, and is especially important to her on tour. In this feature, he talks about how he packs the entire faerie kingdom into a laptop (lemme guess, a MAC laptop) and the details of how to make all her mechanization work seamlessly with her human performance. It’s a stellar read for studio and gear buffs.

M.I.A. Opens For Bjork In France

And, If you are able to catch her 2 shows in Nimes France in August, you will also get to see M.I.A. when she opens for Bjork at these 2 shows!

Ivy Queen, Elephant Man Add To Kat DeLuna’s Debut

Posted by Molli Fire on Friday, 8June07

Elephant Man has been making headlines lately with news of his upcoming album, Let’s Get Physical. I recently reported about the first single from that album being “Five-O” which features Wyclef Jean of Fugees fame. What I didn’t know then, but have learned today, is that Elephant Man recently recorded a song with the 2 illustrious ladies – Kat DeLuna and Ivy Queen, both originally hailing from the Dominican Republic. Kat DeLuna’s “Whine Up” debuted this week at #91 on the Billboard charts, but I have a feeling it is going to soar a lot closer to the top soon. The song is full of energy, makes you want to jump up and dance. It’s very electronic, very pop dancehall, the kind you will hear blasting from car windows in the heat of the summer. I’m a big fan of the reggaeton singer Ivy Queen. She has a sweet and smoldering voice that works so well with modern dancehall’s electrified sound. She is also talented at ruff and ragga sounds such that Lady Saw has made popular.

Ivy Queen is the voice of the Spanish version of “Whine Up,” while Kat DeLuna is the voice of the English version.

“Whine Up” is the first single off of Kat DeLuna’s debut album 9 Lives which will be released on Epic Records this August.

Here is the Spanish Version (audio only, video has not been filmed yet):

You can listen to the English version on Kat DeLuna’s website or murdo$pace.

Klaxons, Kooks, DJ Shadow +More Play Oxjam To End Poverty

Posted by Molli Fire on Friday, 8June07

Oxjam, the Oxfam music festival, announced its preliminary lineup today. Oxjam is no ordinary show, it is an umbrella for 3,000 music events that take place in the UK in October. Oxjam is considered a movement – different musicians, artists, promoters and party people come together each year to try to raise money and awareness for Oxfam. Oxfam is a UK charity whose mission is to end poverty worldwide. So, you can see why it would take such a large event to accomplish such a HUGE goal.

The Klaxons are one of the headliners of this year’s event, and their very own James Righton describes Oxjam thus:

For us, Oxjam is the highlight of the festival season because everyone gets to make the noise themselves. The only thing more exciting than putting on your own event to help fight poverty is knowing that you’re part of a movement of thousands of gigs, club nights and events right across the country.

That’s right, Oxjam needs your help putting these events together! Each year they put out the call for musicians and promoters to organize events as part of the greater movement. And besides a feeling of accomplishment and the satisfaction that you are making the world a better place to live, you might also get featured on MTV. So, if you are in the UK or plan on being there in October, you might want to join the fun!

OXJAM Partial LINEUP 2007

Klaxons
The Kooks
DJ Shadow

Kasabian
Kaiser Chiefs
Merry Men
the Matadors
The Furze
Yer MoMMa
Lost Without Cause
The Clerks Band
The Bakery Girls
Mirno

That’s a lot of K in a lineup… 40,000 musicians total are expected to be involved, so don’t expect a full lineup from me! :) To find out more about any of these bands, and to see other bands that are involved in Oxjam 2007, go to the Mtv Oxjam page

Updates To Icky Thump Gets Leaked + Video

Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 7June07

UPDATE: ICKY THUMP IS NOW STREAMING. Go to the June 12th Icky Thump news on HearingTest for more info.

So, I recently reported (very briefly) that Jack White was pissed to find out that Icky Thump was leaked on a Chicago radio station. Finally, I have a bit more to add to that story.

Watch the official Icky Thump video while you read:

To recap, DJ Electra of Q101 in Chicago received a digital file of the entire album that is set to be released on June 19th. She in turn played the entire album on the air with absolutely no permission from either the White Stripes nor WMG. When Jack got wind of the news within mere hours of the album airing, he took time out of his busy tour schedule and called the station from Spain. He verbally let the people have it over the phone, but the case seems to end there. As yet, no legal action has been taken against the station nor the dj. I will keep my eye out for updates however, because Warner Music Group does not take kindly to piracy and will usually release the dogs (i.e. the RIAA) when they get offended. Someone did record the entire album off the radio and it is available somewhere on the web right now. I’d post a link but it would be useless because it will be shut down by the time you read this and another one will spring up in its place. Check back here for updates on how the story progresses. You can always type White Stripes into the searchbox in the right sidebar, and it will take you directly to all the stories about the band that are published on HearingTest. (There is also a link at the end of this post to all other WS stories).

In the meantime, here are the best/most relevant links available about this story:

In more recent news, the single “they made frogs smoke ’til they exploded” will be released on August 27th.

White Stripes Add More Tour Dates & States

Posted by Molli Fire on Wednesday, 23May07

The White Stripes published good news on their website pertaining to the upcoming Icky Thump album and their touring of the US this year. First, that Icky Thump is now available to pre-order from such music stores as iTunes, and preordering will also get you 2 exclusive bonus tracks and a special live track! As for touring, the siblings are on a quest to touch the soil (or pavement) of each and every state in their home country, including Alaska and Hawaii. Therefore, they have added 8 more states that they have never been to, to their expanding road tour thus extending it all the way til the end of September! While Hawaii will have to wait just a little longer, Anchorage will get a full live experience from the dynamic duo! If they charge only $5-7 for their show, they will be legendary in AK alongside Fugazi (who played a $5 show in Anchorage back when bands never considered the idea of braving the arctic state on a tour, 198- something. Man…or Astroman also played numerous revolutionary shows to adoring fans, visiting Anchorage more often than any non-native band)

UPDATE: ICKY THUMP IS NOW STREAMING. Go to the June 12th Icky Thump news on HearingTest for more info.
