New Julien Baker Single 15 replies

To hype up her upcoming 2021 album Little Oblivions, Julien Baker has released a new song titled "Hardline."

Little Oblivions will be out on the 26th of February, and has been confirmed to feature fellow Boygenius members Lucy Dacus and Phoebe Bridgers on the song "Favor."

Madlib teases Sound Ancestors 11 replies

Los Angeles CA hip hop producer Madlib has aired two brand new tracks in collaboration with Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet.

Titled Sound Ancestors, the album will be officially released on January 29, through Madlib's own Invazion imprint.

Hebden has the following to say about the creative process:

A few months ago I completed work on an album with my friend Madlib that we’d been making for the last few years.

I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and we decided to work on this together with him sending me tr ...more

Marko Hietala leaves Nightwish 9 replies

Bassist and backup vocalist Marko Hietala has left Finnish symphonic metal outfit Nightwish after a 20-year tenure.

You can read his full statement here:

Dear people. I am leaving Nightwish and my public life.

For a quite a few years now I haven’t been able to feel validated by this life. We have streaming company big guns demanding 9/5 work from artists of inspiration while unfairly sharing the profits. Even among the artists. We’re the banana republic of the music industry. Biggest tour promoters squeeze percentages even from our own merchandise while paying dividends to Middle East. Apparently some theocrasies can take the money from the music that would get you beheaded or jailed there without appearing as hypocrites. Just a couple of examples here.

This past year forced me to stay home and think. And I found myself very disillusioned about these ...more
