Waxahatchee streams Ivy Tripp 2 replies

Alabama indie music sad person Katie Crutchfield is streaming her third solo album under the moniker Waxahatchee, entitled Ivy Tripp, today on the NPR website ahead of its April 7 release via Merge Records. Despite leaking in its entirety in early February, Crutchfield has been building hype for Ivy Tripp with published articles and pre-release songs, bolstered by an acclaimed performance at SXSW earlier this month. Crutchfield is set for a long run of U.S. and European dates beginning on the day of the album's release, in addition to her Australian debut with two shows down-under announced just this week.

On Ivy Tripp, Waxahatchee's simple, emotionally devastating aesthetic--having only just been subjected to the full-band treatment on her last album Cerulean Salt--is expanded upon with a much broader instrumental pallet than ever before, applying a range of timbral effects and production tricks to the core instrumentation of vocals, guitar, bass and drums.

The U.S. hates Bieber, Nickelback 67 replies

Online newspaper has just released the results of a consensus on the most hated musicians and artists in the United States. As it turns out, only two names appeared:

Justin Bieber and Nickelback.

Beiber came in at No. 1 with 27 states citing him as the worst musician (mostly within the coastal states), while Nickelback came in second with 23 states (mostly within the Mid-West), thus bringing the total to 50 states, the entire country of the U.S.. Despite this, many people don't have a specific reason as to why they hate them. Another consensus asked the question as to why, but most people just simply said, "they just suck," or "I don't know."

Ex-Death bassist dead at 47 43 replies

Bassist Scott Clendenin, who played on Death's classic The Sound Of Perseverance LP, as well as on Live In LA and Live In Eindhoven '98, has passed away at the age of 47. Clendenin also played with late Death founder Chuck Schuldiner in Control Denied, from 1997-1999. He had been a part of several Death To All live dates in 2012 and 2013.

Death's manager, Eric Greif, posted the following on the band's Facebook page:

"With a sense of shock I'm letting all of you know of the passing today of former DEATH bassist Scott Clendenin. Scott had some health challenges in the last few years but was optimistic about his prospects. Of course he was the skilled player on The Sound of Perseverance DEATH album, and recently participated in two DTA live runs, in 2012 and 2013, including the highlight of his acoustic guitar in a poignant rendition of Voice of the Soul. Our thoughts go out to Scott's family at this difficult time. ERIC"
