Last.fm & Advertising Paranoia...

I read last week that Last.fm, the online music source that CBS acquired last year, is loosening some restrictions and providing listeners with an extensive music archive that can be accessed for FREE. The tracks, however, are streamed and can only be used for up to THREE times, so nobody's taking them home to do with as they wish. I think, after your THREE allowances have been exhausted, you wind up subscribing to the service for a fee. Otherwise, the site is paid for by the advertisers, in the tradition of typical radio.


From a "benefit" standpoint, Last.fm's been made available for independent artists (no label) to use for promotion. Royalties will be paid to these artists based on the amount of times their respective tracks have attracted enough attention to earn a PLAY. So, it's good that some money is going toward those that are struggling to make it, though there's no way to determine whether or not the advertisers will have any say in regard to the artists use Last.fm for self-promotion.

With music sales waning, and even legal downloads attracting less and less attention, it's going to be interesting to see how music ultimately settles itself in terms of buying and selling. I fear for the loss of tangible formats, the loss of record stores...I fear the computer replacing the stereo in every home and music itself being reduced to "files," falling victim to disposability.

But, and this may be just me being paranoid in the most Orwellian sense, I grow more and more concerned with the influence of advertisers in the music industry. As record labels start falling off with artists seeking outside capital to finance their recordings, a move that seems to already be taking shape in the form of Internet-only releases (Radiohead's latest move), advertisers possibly find themselves in the position to dictate taste levels and become the new authority on the guidelines that already qualify certain bands to earn the PARENTAL ADVISORY designation.

Founded by the Parent Music Resource Center, an organization that had NO problem dumping its own standards of morality on the music industry in order to basically change the Bill of Rights, the PARENTAL ADVISORY sticker stands as evidence that the basis of decency can be influenced by a personal point of view, PROVIDED that that point of view wields the power of "no pussy" over the politicians running the show. Interestingly the PMRC were no more than a group of senators' housewives, so it doesn't take much to be an authority on obscenity in America. That being the case, is it implausible that some anonymous ad exec could exercise a little influence over an artist, based on personal beliefs in regard to what should or shouldn't be written, played, distributed and sold?

With organizations like Clear Channel running most of the show in terms of concert promotion and radio, we're already seeing political influence effecting media output. How long before art completely dies under the weight of "decency" and "preference?"

Odessey & Oracle II



The Whitsundays
s/t
Friendly Fire Recordings
Releasing 1.22.08

Rating 7.75/10

Has music really evolved?

Rhetorical question: It has, but not so much in the last twenty years. If anything, the Indie scene’s been keeping the growth relatively neutral, still capitalizing on Smiths riffs and leaning toward the Ian Curtis school of low pitch depression. In the last few years there’ve definitely been some shining stars, but when bands like Interpol show up as part of a scene’s leading crowd, you do have to wonder when the ideas stopped.

At this point, the answer seems to be “well, just go further into the past, dig up some sounds, and see what happens.” In 2006, with bands like The M’s and Wolfmother, the 60s and 70s were more or less reissued and beaten over the ears of listeners, ringing out with cries of “it ain’t new, but at least it ain’t the 80s!!!!” There’s truth there and though their explorations were competent, they were just explorations. There’s no shortage of throwback bands that want to revive 60s songcraft and 70s riff power in exchange for the somewhat overdrawn well of 80s New Wave and Post-Punk. And I guess that’s noble, but with revivalist movements it tends to feel like a fraudulent advancement. Is it really honest to generate yourself as the next best thing when your cash maker’s been exploited before by some other band that probably did it better? Is “tried and true” becoming “tired and bullshit?”

And then you have a band like The Whitsundays, a Canadian quintet whose only job is to be authentically 60s. Listening to their self-titled debut, you definitely get the feeling that music only had it right about 40 years ago, as if The Zombies were the end all/be all and that change has been an unnecessary waste of time. Why? Because the cycle is continuous, so it all comes back anyway.

Swelling with 60s oriented surf guitar, Beach Boys harmonies and organ music, The Whitsundays is a Tarantino level replication of a classic model, exhaustively studied and understood and then regurgitated with batting-eyed admiration and awe. From the first couple notes of opening track, “Loralee,” it’s flashback central and the album’s high production does little to modernize what you hear. Even when something like “It Must Be Me” pulls so glaringly much of its being from The Beach Boys’ “You Still Believe In Me” and The Zombies’ “A Rose For Emily,” the band still legitimizes its appropriation by belonging to its era of origin. It’s done so well, who gives a fuck if they pinch it?

Interestingly though, their efforts don’t completely reflect one point of reference. With “Antisocial” and “Already Gone,” The Whitsundays straddle the line between 60s Pop and present-day Indie rock, taking a shot at those aforementioned Smiths/Joy Division aesthetics. In context to the rest of the album, these tracks feel like anachronisms and sort of diminish the impact of what might’ve been their mission statement.

What’s most fascinating about this group is that they’ve tapped into the potential of being an indistinguishable copy, but only among groups that had their heyday 40 years ago. In that way, they sound somewhat unique for this day and age, proving that the cycle is continuous, and that it all comes back anyway.

Shopping for records #4

Post-holiday fanboy purchases. Don’t you love it when you can buy shit for yourself again?

Borders bookstore, King Of Prussia, PA:

Miles Davis
The Complete On The Corner Sessions
6 CD Boxed Set
Columbia/Legacy
Released 9.25.07

Photobucket

After realizing that I’d thought of very little else other than The Complete On The Corner Sessions box set once it’d been made known to me that it existed, I had to figure out a way to get one. With Christmas having passed and the availability of “buy yourself something fun” money, I strolled into a local BORDERS during my lunch hour and strolled out with this metallically packaged beauty.

It is however just as daunting as I thought it would be to listen to. Six plus hours of Miles Davis jamming out, creating soundscapes the likes of which modern America still hasn’t quite been able to fathom. Even the package seems ahead of its time. Seriously there is some incredible music in this set to explore, but it is an acquired taste. Completely worth the money, though it is overpriced.

StonerRock.com purchases:

Queens of the Stone Age
Era Vulgaris
Triple 10” Vinyl Box Set
Interscope
Released 12.3.07

I also shelled out a couple bucks for the triple 10” box set of Era Vulgaris by Queens of the Stone Age. Sheer novelty value is probably my largest excuse, plus the set’s quickly squandered availability. I was sort of hoping that, since it’s a “box set,” it would’ve included some of the B-sides, like the album’s title track, which was absent from the actual release. I think though you have to go the import route for that unfortunately. Still…great album; interesting format.

Photobucket

Edit: The box set features the B-side "Running Joke." Something I overlooked.

Sleep
Sleep’s Holy Mountain
12” Green/Purple Vinyl
Kreation Records
Album originally released: 1992 (Earache Records)

Photobucket

Photobucket

And novelty was definitely the reason I bought Sleep’s Holy Mountain on vinyl, novelty taking the form of hippie-inspired green/purple tie-dyed vinyl and a 12” version of that magnificent cover. C’mon…that’ll look awesome on ANY wall. Having been unable to lawfully extract this from the merch table at the Om show, I had my heart set on owning this on vinyl. The option of green/purple vinyl was appealing: I just don’t have enough colored vinyl.

Upcoming Releases & A Promise...

“Money’s short; times are hard. Here’s your fucking Christmas card.”

I remember receiving an over-photocopied and tattered fax of a joke Christmas card when I was in high school, the above sentiment printed on its front with a miserable rendering of Santa flipping off any onlooker. I thought it was hilarious, so I showed it to all my friends. The poem inside, an X-rated version of “’Twas The Night Before Christmas,” was recited by me annually on the school bus, just before our weeklong stretch of cold air, white lights and pine needles. Oh, and there were gifts too.

Money being a little short, times being a little hard, (and no X-rated poems to recite), new reviews are going to be a little sporadic this year. Entries might be too. I’ll do my best to keep Letters going.

In the meantime, here’s some music to check out:

The Whitsundays
s/t
Friendly Fire Recordings
Release 1.22.08



There’s an air of 60s Brit Pop being strongly inhaled by The Whitsundays, a Canadian quartet that must’ve ate and slept Odessey & Oracle for about ten years before deciding to pick up instruments themselves. Here are tracks from their debut:

“Loralee”

“Sorry James”

Faunts
M4
Friendly Fire Recordings
Release 1.29.08



A rather Eno take on Explosions In The Sky, the song featured here is more of an ambient production with some slick guitar work over club beats and synthesizer. Faunts also produce some fairly atmospheric indie and guitar strum rock a la The Smiths or The Cure.

”M4 (Part 1)”

PANTHER
14kt God
Kill Rock Stars
Release 2.22.08



“Puerto Rican Jukebox” off of PANTHER’s upcoming release, 14kt God, makes your head bob. It would probably even make you dance. Rhythmically magnetic, it’s a little too raw to be glam and way too styled to be garage, but there is something spontaneous and upbeat to be heard. Check it out:

”Puerto Rican Jukebox”

Why?
Alopecia
anticon.
Release 3.11.08



First hearing these guys on the anticon. Label Sampler 1999-2004, Why? is a melodiously modern, sample-driven hybrid, defining and perfectly embodying the incorporation of street-inspired beat poetry, indie rock, acid-soaked jazz and hip-hop. Their latest album, Alopecia, should be something to look forward to.

”The Hollows”
