Anonymous Musicians

Are there any musicians whom have been around a while and we still don't know what they look like? I am willing to reveal either my face or my name, but not both.. and it will probably be my name. That seems much easier. I do not care if people have info on me or whatever, I just won't connect the mask to the face. There is a great power in doing this, especially if no one has done it before. And if the music is otherworldly, and by that I mean playing so fast that you wonder about the Devil, and dark, I think I'm onto something here and I've already got all the ingredients. Now I just gotta find the time.

Who are some artists who you feel like people gave up on over time for no good reason?

James Brown is consistent as fuck IMO (or at least was for longer than people give him credit), just people got tired of him doing similar stuff all the time

The Fall kept the same spirit as always, but people think being punk means guitars and don't understand how something can be deliberately ugly *via* embarrassing modern, corny production

Bob Dylan stayed strong, but people just associate him with his older style

SEARCHING FOR VIDEOCLIP | PAYING WITH MY LIFE AND HAPPINESS

Hi Guys!



As you can see, I'm desperate as hell. AS HELL.



Back in the day when I was young, happy, and hungry for music, I found that slow/electronic/alternative tune on YouTube. It was in first quater of 2013 (happy times), when YT was placing in suggestions some goode ones, very related to the things you watch, but NEW and FRESH.



My LEGENDARY GRAILL was a videoclip in which two girls were slowly dancing and flexing their bodies etc. - colours were mostly white and gray, and it all has a little bit of erotic flavor. It was rather a short song (2:30 - 3:15?)



BUT THE SONG - the title was something with word "NEED" I suppose - I remember only one thing - that the lirycs were very short, like "I NEED YOU, YOU NEED ME" or some variation of this sentence. Thats all. It was quite slow, gentle tune.



Also I remember that in that time I was listening to Maya Jane Coles - Comfort, Purple - The Club and FKA twigs - Papi Pacifa, and Im sure, that I found the last one through the YT suggestions from the song I am looking for.



GOOD PEOPLE OF EARTH. HELP ME PLEASE - MAKE MY LIFE WORHT LIVING, AND LET US FIND THAT VIDEO CLIP.



PS. Im very emotionaly attached to this song - it was a good times in my life, and I want to remind myself how good it was. Im looking for this song since 2015 …

A B-Side With Your Bacon? Waffle House Has Its Own Music Label

If you drive down any interstate in the South, you can't miss the giant black-and-yellow signs beckoning: Waffle House.

These ubiquitous, yellow-roofed chain restaurants have been serving up not just waffles but all manner of Southern comfort foods 'round the clock for more than 60 years.

And for the past 30 years or so, Waffle House has also been working on a side project: making music.

"There Are Raisins in My Toast" is one of about 40 songs that Waffle House has released since the mid-1980s on its own record label — called Waffle Records, of course.

"So, it's not 'Waffle House, Waffle House, Waffle House' over and over again," she says. "It's about our food. It's about our people. It's about the things that happen if you just sit in a Waffle House and listen to the conversations around you. We try to represent all that to some degree in the songs."

And the Waffle House oeuvre encompasses a broad range of styles.

Song Finding Challenge

I hope this is an ok place to post this, if not tell me.

I have a song I heard a long time ago, and only remember some of the lyrics, but can find them nowhere on the whole interweb, so perhaps the chan can help me out.

They are part of the chorous and go:

"…,
bring light to the darkness
sight/light to the blind, inspiration to the artist"

I might be mistaken, but I believe they are connected to an artist called "son of saturn" (or perhaps were just burned onto the same disc as his music (it was a long time ago)).

If anyone can help me out in any way, please do so.

R: 1 / I: 0
When one makes music, they face the choice to package it, present it- essentially objectify it- in an effort to assess its true value- or they could decide not to do that, retreat to their subjective relationship with their music, live in their fantasy, and, well, in a way, honor the music more because music ultimately exists to serve some subjective purpose anyway.

There are so many parallels here, too. Replace "makes music" with "listens to music" (consider last.fm, RYM). Hell, replace it with "relates to other people."

Help me musikchan with my slightly music related existential crisis- what is right? Is there a broad answer for all of this, or if not, how do you draw the lines?

Dolores O’Riordan, Lead Singer of the Cranberries, Dies at 46

Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer of the Irish rock band the Cranberries, died on Monday in London. She was 46.

Her death was announced by her publicist, who did not specify the cause.

“Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today,” Lindsey Holmes, the publicist, said in an emailed statement, adding that Ms. O’Riordan had been in London for a recording session.

The statement said that family members are “devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said on Monday that the police were called to a Park Lane hotel in Westminster at about 9:05 a.m., and that Ms. O’Riordan was pronounced dead at the scene. Her death is being treated as “unexplained,” the spokeswoman said.

Ms. O’Riordan wrote lyrics and often music for the Cranberries’ 1990s hits, including “Linger” (which remained on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for 24 weeks) and “Dreams,” which proclaimed both vulnerability and steadfastness. She was the sole writer of the noisier, angrier “Zombie,” a response to an Irish Republican Army terrorist bombing in 1993.

Eminem - Revival

Did anyone check this out?

Spoiler: I support Trump and used to listen to Eminem back when he was good

Out of respect for his earlier works, I decided to give this album a listen, the same way I have listened to every album that has sucked since he began sucking. As of writing this, I have only listened to half of it. While Eminem is clearly skilled, it is doubtful that he has any idea of what people actually want to listen to anymore.

In the first track, Walk on Water (featuring Beyonce) gave me a little hope for this album as it sounded like Eminem was getting personal, talking about his hopes, fears, victories, and disappointments. The second track however, begins with a negation of all of that and he claims that since he has a mic, he is a god.

The fourth track, Untouchable, is an NWA style beat criticizing whites and white police officers. In this track he talks at length about the struggle of the black community and of white privilege. Speaking honestly, this is enough to turn me off right here, but since I am trying to listen objectively, I did not let it. What did turn me off however, was that he continuously calls himself black through by referring to blacks and the black community as "we," when in the second track he talks about the privileged lifestyle that he leads, living in a gated community where the neighbors say "hi." It came off as inauthentic and forced.

In their first year of eligibility, Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine, both of whom were considered to be among the favorites for induction, did not get in. Neither did Kate Bush. Eurythmics or Depeche Mode.

>In terms of alternative-minded artists, only the Cars, who mixed new wave with rock and pop to great effect in the late '70s and early '80s made the cut.


>Instead, the Hall also chose Bon Jovi – who won the fan vote – the Moody Blues, Dire Straits and Nina Simone.

Wedding Music

I'm looking for music to be played during my wedding ceremony while the forms are being signed. Music for walking down the aisle and back up again is sorted, and in both instances is orchestral. We've been recommended to have a short piece of music (around 5 minutes) while the paperwork is signed. I figured that full blown orchestral music was a bit much for this, and rock/pop music with vocals would sound too cheesy and out of place, so I'm looking for either solo piano or chamber music that would fit the bill.
I've been listening to some pieces that I thought might be suitable, but I realise now that most of the pieces that have stood out to me over the years sound way too melancholic for a wedding.

Some pieces that I like:

Debussy - Claire de Lune (Google says this is popular at weddings, but it seems too melancholic to me)
Debussy - Reflets Dans l'eau (Possibly my favourite at the moment)
Satie - Gymnopedies (Definitely too melancholic)
Chopin - Nocturne No. 2
Grieg - Peace of the Woods

R. Kelly Is Reportedly Keeping Women Captive In An Abusive Sex Cult

>According to a report from Buzzfeed News, Kelly has been imprisoning women in a sex cult and supposedly abusing them physically to make them stay in it. Music journalist Jim DeRogatis has reportedly verified these rumors with three former members of Kelly's entourage. In fact, the parents of one 19-year-old singer from Atlanta claim that, after meeting Kelly because she thought it would help her career, they've received two texts from her in the span of year and fear for her safety, especially at the hands of the “Bump 'N Grind” singer.

>This is the nor the first time Kelly has been tagged with allegations of sexually deviant behavior. In 2008, he was acquitted of all charges in a child pornography case, after he had been accused of making a sex tape with an under-age girl. The jury could not confirm the identity of the girl in the video, therefore making the evidence in that case inconclusive.


>No official word has come out from Kelly or his representatives on these new “sex cult” allegations.

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide

>Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide … TMZ has learned.

>Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.


>Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.


>The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.


>Chester was very close with Chris Cornell, who himself committed suicide by hanging in May. Today would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday. Chester wrote an open letter to Chris on the day of Chris' suicide.


>The band has had a string of hits over the years, including "Faint," "In the End" and "Crawling." Linkin Park crossed music genres, collaborating with Jay-Z.


>The band's album, "Meteroa," was one of the biggest alternative albums in music history.


>Bennington was 41.

Kesha - Praying

After a legal dispute with Dr. Luke, who wrote all or nearly all of Kesha's well known hits. She dropped out of the scene for a while. Today she has released a new song written by Ryan Lewis of Ryan Lewis and Macklemore.

In "The Song Machine" it talks about how Kesha had wanted to get away from the party girl image and head towards a more rock oriented style. While this song achieves that goal, albeit in ballad form, it is a pretty weak showing as it is fairly stereotypical in its subject matter, especially considering her history with Dr. Luke.

The video opens up with Kesha questioning the existence of God while splayed out on the ground. Soon some sparse piano chords come in and Kesha begins singing to a person that hurt her. A version of the millenial whoop accompanies in the background as the song builds. Kesha talks about how she can make it on her own and how "when she is done they wont even know your [his] name," which is ironic, because someone else wrote this song for her and Dr. Luke still has many many more hits than Kesha and Ryan Lewis combined. The song reaches a weak climax and ends without ever becoming bombastic.

This song will surely grace the radio waves throughout the US, and will mark a new direction in the career of Kesha, but whereas her previous work had a definite signature sound, Praying sounds much more generic and one could easily mistake this song for having been performed by any number of artists. Lets hope that her new album will provide some more inspired material.

Kid Rock Confirms Run for U.S. Senate

>After teasing his candidacy by selling yard signs, Kid Rock has confirmed that he will be running for U.S. Senate. In a new note posted on his website, he said that he still has 15 days to file paperwork with the FEC and make his run official. “It's not a hoax, it's a strategy and marketing 101,” he writes. He also called out Michigan Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow—the incumbent who he’s challenging in next year’s election. “Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind,” he writes. “I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I'll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!”

>Kid Rock also says that he’s planning to release new music during his campaign. “Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I'm planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT,” he writes. He later shared a 12-minute single called “Greatest Show on Earth.” Kid Rock recently shared a new website that sells merchandise with the slogan “Kid Rock for U.S. Senate.” He previously backed Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and performed at last year’s Republican National Convention. He currently sells offensive Trump-themed shirts.

It's some strange stuff in its own rights, but the point is I think I may have found his equally incomprehensible and somehow enjoyable youtube channel. Here's a sample
