  • Paramore: Decode
    by Mike

    Harder bands that feature a female singer and continue to rock are few and far between. One band in particular that fits the bill is that of Paramore. Some may confuse them at times with Flyleaf. Another popular band that features a female singer. Regardless of any cult following you may have with one band or the other, Paramore has some really awesome songs. My favorite in particular is "Decode". The music video above was made for the movie Twilight hence the affiliation. So give it ...
  • Radiohead: Reckoner

    While some may compare Radiohead to many other popular british bands such as Coldplay and Muse, they are in fact in a league of their own. (Not saying Coldplay and Muse suck as I like them too). On the list of bands I'd like to see before I die, they die, or break up is Radiohead. With awesome vocals from a singer who can actually sing notes that are on an actual musical scale (a rare feat these days...especially with that crap called "auto-tune"), stay in pitch, and together with the rest...
  • Driven: “Snapped”
    by Mike

    Following the drumming God from South Africa, I'll begin to head down a different path. A path that hits a little closer to home in fact. Any musician who regardless if they've made it big or not, has a deep love and understanding of local music and the support needed when a "big night" consist of a crowd in the 3 digit range. While the ultimate goal of any local band is to become famous, the one thing that should never leave priority spot number 1 is that of good music. The term "good mus...
  • Bomfunk MC’s: Freestyler - Played by Cobus
    by Mike
    Posted August 26th, 2009 at 8:32 pm
    So far I've highlighted bands that are in the mainstream and enjoy wide success in multiple countries. Again, we all know one of my loves is that of gadgets. And now, you all know a second is music. Building on that love for music is the love I have for the drums. I myself have been playing for 7 years, though, because it has been off and on at times since I still haven't been able to get my own drum set, I can't even begin to compare to Cobus, a remarkably talented drummer from Humansdorp...
  • Alter Bridge: Broken Wings
    by Mike

    Alter Bridge. Whether you knew them before or after they made the switch from Creed, you surely know the potential they had. With Myles Kennedy that potential was unleashed. While many will surely disagree, I find Alter Bridge, and more importantly, Myles Kennedy to have one of the best voices for someone in this genre. He has range, power, and control (most days). With heavy hits such as "Ties that Bind" to amazing rock balads such as "Blackbird" (my personal favorite) to more mainstream...
  • We are the fallen: “Bury me Alive”
    by Mike
    Posted August 26th, 2009 at 8:32 am
    You may remember back a few months ago I wrote about a new band called "We are the fallen". Bands come and go everyday. However, the way this particular band is planning on marketing themselves and connecting with the public is in stark contrast to many bands/labels and their sue first, continue to stall innovation, and apply old business models to new technology. I figured that since I will start adopting music/tech related news into my normal allotment of gadgets and other digital goodies...
  • Breaking Benjamin: “I Will Not Bow”
    by Mike
    Posted August 25th, 2009 at 11:04 am
    As you all know, I love gadgets and technology. However, one of my other loves is music. This new video from Breaking Benjamin (one of my all time favorite bands) showing off their newest single "I Will Not Bow" off of their upcoming album "Dear Agony" will be the first addition to the new music tab I am now displaying on the sidebar box. For now, music videos will occupy this space, however I have some ideas floating around in my head that will come to light in the near future. Hope you...
  • eMusic loses touch with their customers - signs Sony and raises prices
    by Mike
    Posted June 3rd, 2009 at 12:01 pm
    It used to be in the good 'ol days (read: the last couple of years) if you like online music free of cancer ( DRM), as well as indie music, eMusic was your one stop shop. They were the pioneers of DRM free music long before other larger online music stores followed suit. Even though eMusic wasn't as big as other online music stores, the customers agian loved the large selection of indie music as well as lower priced DRM free music. Apparently eMusic no longer cares about thei...
  • Easy iPod Media Sharer makes swapping iTunes lists easier - hair pulling no longer needed
    by Mike
    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 1:38 pm
    iPods are notorious for keeping their media locked down which in turn often frustrates customers as they have to jump through all sorts of 3rd party hoops just to get a simple song from one iPod to another. Thankfully a much easier solution is available to you thanks to the Easy iPod Media Sharer. Able to whisk songs along at up to a claimed 600KB/s means song transfers happen in mere seconds, not minutes. Sadly, DRM authorization and lock downs still persist meaning only DRM free songs wil...
  • Napster joing the subscription fray: $5
    by Mike
    Posted May 18th, 2009 at 6:49 am
    If you were a fan of Napster of years past, this article is not for you. Re-emerging after their epic court battle and shut down has created a leaner and not quite as mean online music retailer. Looking to shake things up a bit and get back into the game, Napster is introducing subscription based option for a mere $5! On top of the very attractive low price, you will now also be able to keep 5 "CD quality" tracks per month as an added bonus. There is however one catch. The subscription an...
  • Bring down the house with the Baby Grand Master
    by Mike

    If you are an all around music nut, composer, or artist, you will surely appreciate this.  Digital pianos bring a level of complexity and sound that no analog piano could ever keep with.  Sure the actual piano sound may sound better than the digital version, but this gap is quickly shrinking.  What digital pianos really shine at is making a one man band one man orchestra.  Now a single human being can sound like hundreds in a full symphony.  Taking the digital piano and evolving it furt...
  • 32GB S9 by Cowon looks slick, now lets you carry more tunes

    It seems as if here in America we get the truly unique, innovative, and downright gorgeous looking tech last (or at least not first) all of the time.  Based on the intro sentense if you were figuring I was going to follow it with a more upbeat and inspiring sentence, I'm sorry to inform you this is not the case.  In the picture above we see a very slick looking PMP by Cowon, the S9, which the company has finally released in a 32GB version.  Said features a 3.3-inch AMOLED screen with fi...
