Straight from Nottingham: Interview with Jake Bugg

Our friend Jake Bugg sings like a chipmunk, spread rot “X Factor” and strumming an acoustic guitar as if he were in a folk band. The new Jake Bugg is inspired by hip hop, spread rot Noel Gallagher and even tries to rap.

Jordan Bassett met a man in the midst of his own rebirth.

Jake Bugg is not ready for close angles. He arrives at a whitewashed studio in West London, shakes hands with us (unexpectedly tight) and leaves to do makeup – it seems that decades pass before he returns. He puts on a white and purple tie-dye jacket, “slightly new rave,” his stylist notes with concern. It seems that Bug’s photographing is not annoying (he would have recently signed a contract with Elite Continue reading

Laughing Sad: An Interview with Daughter

The British trio with Elena Tonra, led by the second album “Not To Disappear”, is again exploring the depths of melancholy.

Despite this, Daniel Koch took an extremely funny interview from Elena and drummer Remy Agilella.

Many people have known this since adolescence: you take your current experiences, make a mixtape or play a playlist with songs that are especially sunken in your soul – and as a result, the recipient of this gift begins not only not to melt from tenderness, but to look into his eyes with the words “With you “Is everything all right? Are you depressed? Do you want to lay hands on yourself there?” Continue reading

In “Skilled Mechanics”, I’m the lead vocalist: an interview with Tricky

More than twenty years ago, Bristol-based artist Tricky, together with the bands Portishead and Massive Attack, managed to create other music, located at the junction of hip-hop, jazz, dub, rock and soul and called “trip-hop”. Since then, this direction has healed its life, and Tricky has acquired the status of a living idol.

Tom White talked to Tricky about his new project, Skilled Mechanics, a new sound, and another studio recording with Massive Attack.

I sat in a bar located on the ground floor of a chic five-star hotel in central London, just to talk to Adrian Tous, aka Tricky, about his new project and album “Skilled Mechanics”. Trika’s musical career, although, obviously, is based on the strong base of the bristol trip trip, it is distinguished by the lack of monotony and the constant desire to pave the way for something new.

Today, Skilled Mechanics, a free collaboration project released on Trika’s own label, False Idols, has become this “new”. The album, according to the musician, lacks a “direct way of thinking … to record an album, release a couple Continue reading

10 interesting facts that science can tell us about music

Where would we be without science? Most likely dead. We could be destroyed by some super cholera or busted by another species of primates, who would discover the secrets of science and decide to use them against us.

So for our existence, we should be grateful precisely to science. It makes the human race fight, heal diseases, connect people and ask important questions, such as these: are Queen fans the most sensitive? Why do cats hate human music? Can listening to Nirvana increase your chances of getting pregnant?

What you will find in this article is 13 carefully studied (not by us) studies that allow you to delve into the microworld of music. However, discovering the secrets of the rhythmic brain takes much longer than just Continue reading
