Music students to Germany from abroad should be familiar with composers such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Stockhausen. However, knowing modern Nigerian composers like Joshua Uzoigwe and Fela Sowande or the 16th-century Indian court musician Tansen is neither expected nor is their music taught in German music colleges. "For the entrance exams, you have to be familiar with Western European music; you can't apply as a specialist in African drum rhythms," Julia Gerlach from Berlin's Akademie der Künste cultural institute told Deutsche Welle.

Parker Millsap is ready to have some fun. Over the course of his first three albums, the 25-year-old singer-songwriter has developed a heady reputation with his fire-and-brimstone folk and Southern Gothic storytelling. But on his latest LP, Other Arrangements , Millsap shows that, for him, growing up means learning to let loose. “I got a buddy down in Texas who says, ‘If they’re moving, you’re winning.’ I like that,” says Millsap over the phone from his parents’ house in Purcell, Oklahoma, where he visited recently from his current home in Nashville. “I want to write songs that anybody can listen to and find something to relate to without having to know about truck stop chapels and the geopolitics of central Oklahoma.” Related Inside the Kristofferson-Worthy Songwriting of Parker Millsap Parker Millsap on Why Missed Notes Make the Most Joyful Music Related Super Bowl Halftime Shows Ranked: From Worst to Best 'Silence of the Lambs': The Complete … [Read more...] about Parker Millsap on the ‘Gospel Sex Music’ of New Album ‘Other Arrangements’
Parker Millsap has earned a reputation as a spiritually minded, if not outright spiritual, songwriter. The Oklahoma native described his last record as “gospel sex music” and riffed on yogi Ram Dass’s influential book Be Here Now for the title of his new album: Be Here Instead . “Stop looking ahead/be here instead/this is the prayer,” Millsap sings in the hypnotic album track “Now, Here,” a song he wrote before the pandemic. When he revisited the lyrics during pre-production for Be Here Instead , it revealed a new meaning. “Why is that jumping out at me?” Millsap says. “And then I realized, ‘Oh, quarantine!’ Be here instead — instead of going to work, instead of going on vacation, or whatever it was you’re going to do. You’re going to be here now for a while.” Related Stories Erin Rae Confronts the South's Legacy of Racism in New Song 'He's Not Free' Parker Millsap Talks Bad Singers, Speaking in Tongues on Chris Shiflett's Podcast Related Stories … [Read more...] about Parker Millsap on Why Missed Notes Make the Most Joyful Music

The "everything store" is trying too hard to make the everything app. Jeramy Johnson 23 Sep 2020 2 Source: Jeramy Johnson / Android Central After months of rumors and speculation, last week Amazon rolled out a new feature incorporating podcasts into its Amazon Music service and apps. This followed an announcement just a week or so prior that the company was featuring Twitch live streams in the music app as well. Greater choice and more options are generally seen as good things for the consumer, but upon hearing this I had to wonder: is this an example of giving customers everything but the kitchen sink, or is it more like throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks? If you've never used the service before, Amazon Music is somewhat of an umbrella term, encompassing several distinct services and tiers of streaming music available from Amazon. … [Read more...] about Like Spotify before it, podcasts in Amazon Music feel horribly unnecessary
The statistics of Bandcamp Friday speak for themselves: In the year-plus since the launch of the campaign, during which the platform has waived its revenue share for music purchased on the first Friday of each month, fans have paid artists more than $50 million dollars . “Bandcamp is like my life source,” metal auteur Trevor William Church told Rolling Stone in 2019, no doubt speaking for many creators in the age of meager streaming royalties. Bandcamp Friday continues on May 7th — read on for a slew of recommendations from RS staffers on what to throw into your virtual shopping cart. Juliana Hatfield , Blood Juliana Hatfield writes some of the most acerbic, delightful pop songs out there — she gets you bobbing your head to her catchy melodies and sweet voice, then lays you flat with a line like, “I’m living in a nightmare and I can’t wake up/The whole world is controlled by fascist, blood-sucking fucks.” Continuing in the same vein as 2017’s Pussycat — which … [Read more...] about Bandcamp Friday, May 2021 Edition: Support Artists by Buying This Music
