Well, honestly, it took me a while to think of the perfect way to describe “26.” At first, I couldn’t think of a lot of good words and wasn’t too thrilled with the album until I started digging deeper into the track list. Initially, I was a little taken aback by the actual singing and […]

Though “Snow” aims to be a soothing album, at times, it felt to be quite the contrary, which helps to add to the mystique and cleverness of the EP. While some tracks certainly were mellow, others had a more agitated quality to them to help balance out the EP and give it more depth and […]

What do you want? Like, really want? Well, if you’re Lachi, you’re not shy about excitingly exclaiming that you want that body…over and over. But, it’s that same bold repetition that makes the song so catchy and likable. Lachi lends her powerful pipes to her latest smoldering single, “What I Want.” For this lit joint, […]

With a soul swelling from the depths of her very being, with a voice that was unparalleled and unforgettable and with a stage presence that brought countless audiences to their knees, Ms. Aretha Franklin was more than a singer, a performer, a legend and a diva, she was a true Queen who blessed the masses […]

As festival season rapidly rolls in, we’re constantly being reminded of the continuing lack of diversity on our lineups. With a recent study indicating 86 per cent of the lineups of 12 major music festivals last year including Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds and Creamfields were male, it seems that the ears at the top are […]

What do you believe is the number one thing that musicians are doing to ruin their chances at succeeding in the music industry? Is it: not practicing their instrument enough? Not putting together enough good music industry connections? Living in a city with no music scene? The answer to all of this is NO – […]

It is normally expressed in terms of pitch (which includes melody and harmony), rhythm (which includes tempo and meter), and the quality of sound (which includes timbre, articulation, dynamics, and texture). Music may also involve complex generative forms in time through […]

We had some truly stellar photos come out of our photographers this week, as they attended shows from Vance Joy, Ball Park Music, Matt Corby and Groovin The Moo sideshows, with the common theme being some amazing light shows. As Forbes notes, in the missive, Sixx and bandmates James Michael and DJ Ashba implore YouTube […]
