EMA “CALIFORNIA” Official Video #mvod 1024

This blog is certainly still going, but the post a day may have caught up with me!

I have a new music project in the works, and other ventures that are keeping me busy. In the meantime, stay tunes, as new posts will come!

And again, thanks for reading!

#SoundCloudSunday – Sick of it All via Century Media

Some nice brutal hardcore from the kings of New York City Hardcore for your Sunday night! Brought to you from Sick of it All!

They have been going strong since 1985, and are currently at work on their new album!

Then:

SOIA

Only their last two albums were on Century Media (Death to Tyrants on the short-lived — about five years — imprint Abacus Recordings), the last two having being quite heavy. And they also released Non-Stop, selections of their older material re-recorded on Century Media in 2011.

Track one from Death to Tyrants, “Take the Night Off”:

Track one from Based on a True Story, “Death or Jail”:

Watch the video for “Step Down”, a classic track from 1994s Scratch the Surface, and a great video!

Now (although bassist from 1992 on, Craig Setari on the right, Rich Cipriano being in the above picture):

SOIA_Nonstop

Unfortunately they are not on Grooveshark, but are on Rdio, so likely other legal streaming sites. With that in mind, seek out the song “Good Lookin’ Out” from 1997s Built to Last, one of my favourite tracks from them. As far as full albums go, Call to Arms was generally not well received but I liked it very much at the time of release, and still do to this day, it definitely has a distinct feel they never had on any album. As does their next album, 2000s Yours Truly, which could almost be thought of as a concept album.

Second to last #SoundCloudSunday before a hiatus!

I will keep on publishing a new music video of the day, and keep my Twitter account active, however as of June 1 this blog will be going on a hiatus. June 1 marks the six year anniversary of this music blog.

I will write a more in depth post right before the hiatus. In the meantime, I have a few more posts I want to get out there before then.

As always, thanks for reading, and be sure to follow me on Twitter: @tmmblog!

Here you go Toronto: Rush’s YYZ isolated tracks

As a Montreal Canadiens fan, I actually ended up rooting for Toronto to beat Boston (they are a Canadian team after all!), close but no cigar! I may have been more upset at their loss than Montreal’s! Maybe not, but Montreal’s loss was gradual so easier to take. Toronto’s was over in milliseconds, so, the drum part from the awesome Rush track “YYZ” for you down and out Maple Leaf fans.

YYZ is of course Toronto’s airport code with the International Air Transport Association (IATA). And it is played in morse code in the track!

It was nominated for a Grammy in 1982 in the Best Rock Instrumental Performance category but lost to The Police’s “Behind My Camel”. Other nominees were: Dixie Dregs’ “Unsung Heroes”, Robert Fripp’s “The League of Gentlemen” and Kraftwerk’s “Computer World”.

Check out the guitar and bass tracks for “YYZ” too!

Very sweet isolated tracks, and a great instrumental with all parts together as a single entity.

Go Sens!

Once again thanks for reading…!

#SoundCloudSunday – SZA

There is not too much information out there on SZA, yet. Regardless, it is good to hear the music, and find out more later.

 

And yes, she seems to be a Wu-Tang fan, perhaps how she got her stage name. Listen to her entire first EP (See.SZA.Run):

 

And the second, S.

Watch the official video for “Country”:

What I am reading online

Back from a brief hiatus (impending announcement in about a week) with a new post about some of what I have been reading online recently:

A pretty cool song analysis of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” written by a music production guy who has written a few books:

White Stripes “Seven Nation Army” Song Analysis. Open it in a new tab and listen:

 

Elvis Costello’s song, “Beyond Belief”, from his album Imperial Bedroom is quite the vocal performance, lyrical feat, and musically too:

Elvis Costello’s Beyond Belief Could Have Been in The Social Network

Read the above, and again, listen whilst checking out the lyrics here.

 

Not on topic (of music):

Some cool images from Fantastic Adventures imagining how life may look on the other planets of our solar system dating back to 1939!

Inspiration: Fantastic Adventures

Once again, thanks for reading!

Sampling/interpolation/covers

Well, first post since Saturday night. Expect an announcement in about nine days….

I was listening to the start of the terrific Beastie Boys album Hello Nasty, and specifically checked out the samples used on track one, “Super Disco Breakin'”.

Wikipedia lists the following samples having been used:

  • “Sucker M.C.’s (Krush Groove 1)” by Run-D.M.C.
  • “Is Manhattan in the House?” by Busy Bee
  • “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” by Gary Numan

 

I know for sure the first is correct, as it is listed in the liner notes, and it is the only one over at whosampled.com. And that is apparently “Busy Bee” speaking, so maybe not exactly a ‘sample’. (Well, okay, I suppose it is a sample, as it was recorded in 1982 it appears!)

I listened to the Gary Numan track, and it does not really sound like it was sampled on “Super Disco Breakin'”. However I did recognise the song, as I knew a song that had used the melody from “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?”. It took a moment, and then I realised it being the British pop group Sugababes’ “Freak Like Me”, itself a cover of Adina Howard’s song of the same name from 1995 (which I did not know). Adina’s original version (which is not bad!) samples Bootsy Collins’ Bootsy’s Rubber Band “Bootsy’s Rubber Band”, whereas the Sugababes track indeed interpolates Gary Numan’s track as the backing melody. Got that? I hope so. If not, listen and you shall see what I mean:

I included the Beastie’s track for reference. And really by coincidence, my last post was about the one year anniversary of the tragic loss of Adam “MCA” Yauch.

Adam Nathaniel Yauch (August 5, 1964 – May 4, 2012)

Palmetto Playground, a triangular park adjacent to the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in Brooklyn Heights, was renamed Friday for Adam Yauch, the late Beastie Boys member and Brooklyn native who spent time there as child.

Saturday marks one year since Yauch, a socially conscious and widely beloved rapper known by his stage name MCA, died after battling throat cancer.

The event in his honor was held on a sprightly day and attended by a sizable crowd of neighborhood residents and fans.

Horovitz, clad in sunglasses, paid tribute to his former bandmate and said a playground was a fitting spot to name for Yauch. “Like the Wu Tang clan,” he said, referring to the rap group that hailed from Staten Island, “Beastie Boys is for the children!”
