Jay Z is trying to poach Tidal users from Spotify with this website
Apr 17, 2015 4:57am | Fact Magazine

Tidal continues to fight Spotify’s dominance.

Understanding that the hassle of losing all your carefully curated playlists might be making it more difficult to switch from Spotify, Jay Z’s Tidal service has announced a new partnership that might make things a little easier.

Tidal has teamed up with Soundiiz, a website that automatically transfers playlists from one music app to another. You simply connect, then drag and drop your Spotify playlists to the Tidal box. It can also transfer playlists from SoundCloud, Xbox Music, Rdio, and iTunes.

Though Jay Z might still have a way to go to convince people to commit to a Tidal subscription, this and the announcement of the new Rising service to highlight emerging artists might help. [via The Verge]

Drakes next album is a paradigm shift featuring a Beyoncé collaboration
Apr 17, 2015 4:11am | Fact Magazine

Drake spills some details on Views From The 6.

In an interview with Drake at Four Pins, the artist has offered some information on the content of his next album.

According to the interview – which took place prior to his Coachella performance with Madonna – Drake revealed he’s finished just two songs so far. One is a track with Beyoncé, and the other is “a song that he expects to inspire a paradigm shift.”

Though Drake is fairly tight-lipped about exactly what form it will take, he agrees with the interviewer’s assessment that it’s equivalent to what Kanye West did on 808s and Heartbreak. You can read the whole thing here – it’s also worth a read if you want some insight into Drake’s home life. [via Stereogum]

His Name is Jonas: DiS meets Mew's Frontman
Apr 17, 2015 2:52am | Drowned In Sound

On Monday, DiS will be streaming Mew's new album, today we share our conversation with their Jonas Bjerre.

Mew are a band that, to be frank, should be able to consider themselves career musicians, if any band dare do that. So unique is the Danish bands blend of melancholy pop with a rock (almost metal tinged) centre-pin that they stand in glorious isolation. With five albums released and their latest +- due for imminent deployment, its a fanfare of melodies that inspires with its confident positivity.

This is an album by a band reacquainted, and feeling more at ease than ever within their particular sonic world. Sure theyll never ride a Zeitgeist, but Zeitgeists are generally derivatives of derivatives, so who wants them? Having the opportunity to talk to frontman Jonas Bjerre about +- brings into focus that being s musician these days is an endlessly varying series of repetitions and that happiness in your own creativity is all you can aspire to, the rest might come with it.

DiS: You guys dont rush your output, with normally at least three years between albums, but +- took six years, why the long gestation period?

Jonas Bjerre: We were going for the world record.

DiS: So each time you put out an album, do you feel like youre entering a different industry?

JB: It is very different each time, its a strange dynamic in a band like ours that takes so long in between record...

Tennis - Ritual in Repeat
Apr 17, 2015 2:30am | Drowned In Sound

Ritual In Repeat, the third album by husband-and-wife indiepop duo Tennis, was originally slated for release back in February, and it turns out this delay has been an unexpectedly excellent idea. As I write this the UK is showing the first welcome signs of summer and honestly the weather could not be better suited to Alaina Moore and Patrick Rileys particular brand of woozy dream pop.

Something about the sound of Ritual Repeat conjures up the aesthetic of warm nights on the American West Coast. One can almost imagine it soundtracking much nicer, less violent versions of Drive or Hotline Miami. Its all big, dreamy Beach House synths and sharp guitar lines, though there are plenty of satisfying moments where it stretches this template. Lead single 'Im Callin' adds Chromeo-style funky keys and choppy guitars to the mix, and its immediately followed by the Sixties doo-wop/girl group influenced 'Bad Girls', which even crams in an echoey surf-rock guitar solo for maximum retro effect. The two combined are one of the best segments of the whole album. The Sixties feel is also present on the short-and-sweet Wounded Heart, a one minute and forty-nine second breath of acoustic, singer-songwriter, folk-tinged fresh air.



If these strayings from the summer pop template are so satisfying, though, its only because the template itself is so effortlessly glorious. The opening three-song salvo is about as perfect a ...
