VideoMusicStars http://videomusicstars.com Independent Music News Headlines Wed, 26 Apr 2017 16:51:54 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Jack Soundfield: “Shine” has defined melody in the forefront http://videomusicstars.com/jack-soundfield-shine-has-defined-melody-in-the-forefront/ http://videomusicstars.com/jack-soundfield-shine-has-defined-melody-in-the-forefront/#respond Wed, 26 Apr 2017 16:51:54 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=14077 By profession Jack Soundfield is an engineer who has travelled around the world. He has lived in Canada, Germany and Switzerland. Besides uncovering the secrets of the globe Jack has a passion for music and experimenting with instruments and sounds.  “Before publishing a song, it is mine alone,” says Soundfield. “After publishing it, anyone can listen to it and decide whether to identify with it, or love it, or both.” Jack, who has been composing music since 2009, recently released his debut album, entitled “Shine”. “I have to admit,” explained Soundfield, “that my girlfriend – a solfège teacher of the Kodály method – sometimes did intervene and had her influence on the music.”

In writing about ambient music, Douglas Rushkoff notes that ‘ambient’ music isn’t a set of particular sounds one listens to but a space in which one breathes. Rushkoff was referring specifically to ambient visionary Brian Eno but it can easily apply to Jack Soundfield and “Shine”. Though to be fair, Soundfield’s instrumental music is more pop orientated and brighter sounding, the fact remain that it creates ‘’a space in which to breathe’’.

Whereas classic ambient has layers and washes of sound and music that can be focused on or ignored, lazily mind-surfed or instead analyzed, Soundfield’s soundscapes have defined melody in the forefront which of course becomes hard to ignore.

Never just a trite sound collage – a problem which plagues so many in this genre – “Shine” has moods, textures, and rhythms, that lend well to repeated listening. You can dig deep or soar to the shore with this collective work.

The other interesting thing is that Jack Soundfield uses a series of what can be called classic ‘old school’, almost MIDI-like sounds, as opposed to the high-flying electronic mimicry of Digital Audio. This is true of both the keyboard sounds and the percussion.

There are lots of harpsichord and string instrumentation which gives the pieces a classic feel. Sometimes they are even cinematic, as is the case with “Freedom Ride” and the title track “Shine”. So, this music is perfect for so many things. Night driving, working, sleeping, hanging out, studying, reading – the minimalism and yet fullness of these tunes is irresistible.

You can find and share Jack Soundfield’s music on Spotify or you can also stream and purchase it on Google Play.

HR Live At CBGB’s 1984 – an unbridled zest for making hard driving music! http://videomusicstars.com/hr-live-at-cbgbs-1984-an-unbridled-zest-for-making-hard-driving-music/ http://videomusicstars.com/hr-live-at-cbgbs-1984-an-unbridled-zest-for-making-hard-driving-music/#respond Tue, 25 Apr 2017 20:47:06 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=14071 HR is most well known as the lead singer of revolutionary reggae punk rock band Bad Brains. In their day Bad Brains could have been easily mentioned in the same breath as The Ramones, The Sex Pistols or The Clash, such was their greatness. Yet the band has evolved many times in its long history, playing across many genres of music including jazz, hardcore punk, alternative rock and reggae. HR has been making music since 1976 with Bad Brains, and along the way until today, he has been acclaimed for his reckless punk screaming just as much as he has been lauded for soulful reggae crooning. A quick web search will document numerous album releases from both the band Bad Brains as well as solo releases by HR.

On his new solo album “HR Live At CBGB’s 1984” HR gets back to his punk rock roots alongside his brother, Bad Brains drummer, Earl Hudson. We recently grabbed a listen to the first single from the album, entitled “Let’s Have a Revolution”.

This is a great track, a short sharp punch that contains everything that was good about early punk. It has politics, ethos, anger and humor in spades. And all wrapped up in under three minutes. Most punk bands today, don’t say as much with an entire catalog of music.

This is real punk rock hence the bass and drums is where the dynamic of the music is most heard, but on this release, these instruments are joined by an incessant electric guitar that runs back and forth across the banging soundscape, almost in a call and response form, juxtaposed with the high energy vocals.

HR along with the rest of Bad Brains are an essential part of alternative music and punk culture, they were much more than just the Sex Pistols of America. They had the same load of energy and anger, but were much more intellectual and instrumentally could blow many of their counterparts out of the water.

Strong lyrics, great music and good quality musicians was not always a reachable equation for many punks bands, but it came easy to Bad Brains, simply because they were not just a punk band. This new release plays testimony to the power and versatility of HR and Earl Hudson, by capturing them in a live performance. There can hardly be a better way to uncover their unbridled zest for making hard driving music.

For CD sales and future vinyl release dates go to www.catchafiremusic.com, where the full album “HR Live At CBGB’s 1984” is ready for purchase.

Ice photographer Lliam Greguez Releases Two Acoustic Prog Punk Albums http://videomusicstars.com/ice-photographer-lliam-greguez-releases-two-acoustic-prog-punk-albums/ http://videomusicstars.com/ice-photographer-lliam-greguez-releases-two-acoustic-prog-punk-albums/#respond Sat, 22 Apr 2017 10:38:33 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=14062 New York City, New York – Greguez is not only a man who hits the ice with his camera in hand, but a musician who tackles an apartment studio to collaborate in a mix of acoustic and synthesized sounds. So much sound in fact that he’s released not one, but two albums to mitigate some of the imbalances that surround us.

Musically Greguez is well-rounded, using its’ power to heal as a trained creative arts therapist at a handful of children’s hospitals in the New York City Area. In conjunction with this work, he unloosed his experimental tendencies to assemble a pair of albums; Other People’s Children in English and La Yola in Spanish, the latter written by Dominican artist Luis Días. Each showcase uptempo acoustic music that could be labeled anti-pop with a unique essence accompanied by deliberative lyrics.

Engaging young patients weekly with music to improve their well-being and then switching to reclusive winter camping to capture freezing moments of a mountain stream – of which nature audio samples & photos of ice are featured on his CDs – incites a pair of albums that are full of progressive punk exploring everything from being balanced in the mind to love to political health. Those interested in hearing more from Greguez, can check him out online or get in touch via the information below.

About:
Lliam Greguez is a macro ice photographer and a creative arts therapist in New York City who fills his week doing music with chronically ill children. Needing an outlet for his offbeat ideas, he recorded and released two Acoustic Prog Punk albums which showcase collaborations that bounce ideas and sounds around like children playing in winter.

ReachingNova: “IT’S ABOUT TIME” is full of expansive beats, intense rhymes, and peerless storytelling http://videomusicstars.com/reachingnova-its-about-time-is-full-of-expansive-beats-intense-rhymes-and-peerless-storytelling/ http://videomusicstars.com/reachingnova-its-about-time-is-full-of-expansive-beats-intense-rhymes-and-peerless-storytelling/#respond Sat, 22 Apr 2017 10:05:16 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=14059 The Bronx, NYC creative, ReachingNova is without a doubt one of the smartest, all-round great underground rappers on the block right now. His album “IT’S ABOUT TIME”, features powerful themes and gives amazing personal perspectives on some deep rooted issues and aspirations which inevitably reflect everything happening around ReachingNova, but could so easily apply to any ambitious human being on a serious daily grind, no matter what walk of life they’re in. Each track is superbly produced, and none feel like they don’t belong on this collection. What seperates ReachingNova from his contemporaries is that he’s found way to excel at his rap aspirations while subverting it.  He has found a way to reconcile the inherent vices of the game with the salving possibilities of art.

ReachingNova channels rap’s energy to deliver uplifting and revealing messages while smuggling complexity and entertainment into the verses. There are some strong hooks here, but not the repetitive pop kind you’re used to, plenty of head-nodding beats, and most importantly, ReachingNova rapping with an ear for little turns of phrase and of melody that will stick in the brain.

ReachingNova

ReachingNova

He has a sense for musical adventure: Tempos make surprising shifts, backward sounding loops intrude in, for instance on “No Explanations” and “Pacify” – the production allover, does a lot of the work of conveying the album’s approach to ReachingNova’s storytelling. Listening along as he lobs syllables as quickly as the ear can catch them is a joy, and the creative storytelling carried out in these shifting flows feels satisfying and complete.

From the moment the album opens with “An Evening In Tampa Bay”, it becomes a widescreen masterpiece of rap, full of expansive beats, intense rhymes, and peerless storytelling about ReachingNova’s daily destiny. “World So Empty” ft. Dave East is a precious story, the stuff rocks, and it’s delivered with such precision, vivid detail, and masterful pacing that it can’t possibly be true.

But it’s a tale too powerful not to believe in – just like its narrator. ReachingNova proves he’s a master storyteller, but he always seems to be saving his best plot twist for the next song, waiting until he is ready to pull it off. And on both “Make It Happen” and “Something Timeless” – one of the catchiest tracks on the entire album – he pulls it off big time.

Storytelling seems to be ReachingNova greatest skill (without disregarding his production skills), and primary mission – to articulate the intimate specifics of daily grinding from your surroundings. The raps put forth on tracks like “I Remember”, “No Explanations” and “Beach Waves” bobs, winds and pulls mercilessly like a computerized sewing machine.

ReachingNova is cracking open his genes all over this thing with vigor, unraveling strands of his pedigree on each and every track. “IT’S ABOUT TIME” is as bold and as hard and as hopeful as it is bursting with bristling energy. It’s as introspective as it is inciting. It’s as cohesive as it is dense. It’s a volatile and revelatory chapter in a legacy that’s following ReachingNova as he moves his career ahead towards the main spotlight.

5 Best Music Websites as Alternative to Tidido http://videomusicstars.com/5-best-music-websites-as-alternative-to-tidido/ http://videomusicstars.com/5-best-music-websites-as-alternative-to-tidido/#respond Thu, 20 Apr 2017 19:45:08 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=14056 Tidido is Blocked! The 5 Best Music Websites as Alternative!

Tidido was one of the most important music websites that you could use to access your favorite music. But now it just doesn’t work at all. What happened to Tidido? Unfortunately, Tidido.com is closed as its assets and services were acquired by Deezer. You won’t be able to access your playlists and favorites anymore, so this would be the perfect time to find an alternative to it. Since time is of the essence, we created a list with some of the best music websites that you can use as an alternative to Tidido. This way you don’t have to worry that Tidido is blocked!

Best Tidido Alternatives

MusicMegaBox
If you want to find the very best Tidido alternative, this is definitely what you are looking for! MusicMegaBox is the ultimate music collection that you can find online and it’s available free of charge. You don’t even have to create an account: you can listen to hundreds of thousands of different songs without registration. If you want music collections, MusicMegaBox has that for you as well. Here you can find music collections for parties, sports, relaxation, driving, learning and so on.
Plus, MusicMegaBox allows you to create your playlist and browse the music playlists created by other users. Some of the other great features offered here include a top 100 list as well as the ability to see the song lyrics. You can read more about MusicMegaBox in the press release.

Pandora
Pandora is a free internet radio that gives you access to a plethora of songs. Unfortunately, it’s restricted to the US and a few other regions, so you can’t access it worldwide. The loading times for songs can be high depending on your internet speed, but it can be a great option if you want free online radios.

Spotify
Just like Pandora, Spotify is not available in all regions. This is rather unfortunate, but on the other hand, you can listen to lots of music for free. You can create your playlists too, although you may have to deal with ads most of the time as you listen to your music.

Deezer
Deezer acquired Tidido, but there’s no news what it plans to do with it. Since your former playlists won’t be found on Deezer, you can easily use another service. Deezer offers access to millions of songs, and you can easily create playlists, however browsing is rather restricted and the fact that it’s automatically detecting your local language can be good or bad for some users. It’s a worthwhile option, but the user interface and a lack of music collections do show that there are better options out there.

Jango
Jango gives you access to tens of thousands of songs. Some of them are popular, others are indie, and even newcomers can share their music here. You can also find music collections. The downside is that you can’t browse the song, you just listen to it, and that can be troublesome for some users. Still, it does provide plenty of value for your time even if it includes ads sometimes.
Even if Tidido is no more, you can still find some amazing music websites that you can use as an alternative. As you can see from the options presented above, there is a lot of value to be had here. Don’t hesitate and use a website like MusicMegaBox to listen to your favorite music, as it can easily deliver the features of Tidido and so much more!

Ron Hamrick: “Musings” achieves a rich, smooth and organic sound http://videomusicstars.com/ron-hamrick-musings-achieves-a-rich-smooth-and-organic-sound/ http://videomusicstars.com/ron-hamrick-musings-achieves-a-rich-smooth-and-organic-sound/#respond Wed, 19 Apr 2017 16:34:32 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=14050 Ron Hamrick’s music career started in Michigan at 5 years old when his aunt introduced him to the guitar. At 8, he began taking piano and organ lessons learning classical pieces, and he fell in love with keyboards. His music career now spans decades with thousands of performances at venues across the U.S. and even in the U.K. Ron was inducted into the Michigan Rock and Roll Legends Hall of Fame in 2011 as a member of the popular band The Sixth Generation which reached number 2 on the Billboard Charts and was considered for a Grammy Nomination. Ron has been a part of the band since 1966. In addition to being a member of The Sixth Generation, Ron, who is an accomplished singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, is also a fully-fledged solo artist. He recently released his album, entitled “Musings”, which expresses his thoughts and feelings from everyday life.

Ron Hamrick

Ron Hamrick

If you ever had a penchant for James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkel, or The Beach Boys either together as a group or as individual artists, then this album is too good to either pass up and/or not have in your collection.

In a world where people nowadays are busy shouting at each other with that ‘I am going to be in your face attitude’, it is nice to be reminded that there are still artists who make sense without being loud and obscene, because music is after all an art that touches the soul and hearts of those who lend an ear to them.

This is music you can not only understand, but enjoy, as it transports you back to a time where love, harmony and peace were the rule of the day, rather than the hate and obscenities which are more in fashion today.

Ron Hamrick is at his best when he allows himself to commit to his reedy, high-pitched tones on “Fly Like an Eagle”, “I’m Livin’ Life”, “I Ain’t Seen No Rain” and “You Make Me Who I Am”.

The sounds are mostly lushly produced, together with a vast array of light orchestral resources and the latest tricks in sound technology, the goal being to achieve a rich, smooth and organic sound. These qualities are best appreciated on “Nothing Like A Rainy Day”, “Old Photographs” and “Ride Towards The Misty Dawn”.

The production accentuates the virtues of the melodies, and their capacity to evoke an almost inspirational purity. Hamrick employs a uniform an approach to the wide a range of material, as he clearly wants to make everything pretty to the ear, and he invariably succeeds, yet in doing so he never obscures the character of the material.

Ron Hamrick’s “Musings” is based on soft, delicate textures and the mood is relaxed and gossamer. The singer’s voice is naturally pliant and supple, while the keyboard is his best instrument. Hamrick’s phrasing is clean and distinct, allowing the full explosion of his lyrics to blast into your mind.

Beautiful strings play on several of the tunes, while the right instruments are always matched with the right songs on this album. There is no “weak” moment on this recording, and you will hear Ron Hamrick emote and communicate at every level.

Lion Vega: “You Can Dance” sets its own benchmark! http://videomusicstars.com/lion-vega-you-can-dance-sets-its-own-benchmark/ http://videomusicstars.com/lion-vega-you-can-dance-sets-its-own-benchmark/#respond Wed, 19 Apr 2017 08:01:56 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=14047 Lion Vega’s dream of making music stopped in 1998, with the advent of having a job, having a family, needing money, and no time left between any of these things. During the period leading up to 2006, Vega found a few moments to publish some tracks to MySpace, as well as have a vinyl recording done. Then a few months ago, one of Lion Vega’s three sons asked to hear some of his tracks. The question of why he had stopped making music ignited the spark that was needed to get Vega’s creative flame burning again. The result is a stream of recordings and releases, culminating in his brand new EDM single “You Can Dance”.

Running through Lion Vega’s catalog it is clear that he is able to serve a perfect blend of old and new, demonstrating his forward-thinking approach and illustrious ability to remain relevant. His collection seems to consist of reworks of previously released tracks and a bevy of fresh new tunes.

These tracks range from underground to future synths to electro to progressive house. If anything, Vega’s catalog is a testament to how he has grown into the complete producer – he is creative and versatile, with an incredible talent for sound design and has ultimately set his own benchmark for his production standards with the release of “You Can Dance”.

It is seriously impressive to see someone finally realize their dreams while adapting to the ever-changing EDM scene after all these years. Overall, “You Can Dance” is full modern package of dance-floor fun, mixed with old school bass-driven funkiness, and it proves that a decade after his MySpace releases, Lion Vega still knows how to make relevant dance music.

You can’t fault him for staying true to what probably is his roots sound and becoming a true master at it, and at the same time exploring in new directions that reflect some of the emerging trends in EDM.

“You Can Dance” has a bit of that Daft Punk vocals and deep thumping bass sound that many find irresistible. Loaded with warm synths and twinkling pianos, the entire track is extremely pop-friendly, yet stays true to the roots of dance music with an inventive arrangement that spins timeless sound design in a new direction for Lion Vega.

 Complementing his bursting lyrics with an emotionally rich topline, Vega has crafted a delicious tune that’s leaves us gouged with modernity and the forgotten tones of the 80’s and 90’s.

Perhaps the most striking thing about “You Can Dance” is what it’s not trying to be. It’s not a high concept reinvention like what we’ve seen from Flume, nor is it attempting to destroy the charts like the intentions of Calvin Harris.

While success is definitely on the agenda, we can depend on Lion Vega to craft music as he envisions it, in the styles that he feels are appropriate, not according to what he thinks we’ll enjoy. As a result, “You Can Dance” is a tune that will please a wide array of fans, both old and new alike.
