Today In Black Sabbaths Facebook Feud
Apr 17, 2015 3:16pm | StereoGum
A quick update on Black Sabbath's public infighting this week: First, drummer Bill Ward posted to Facebook that he wouldn't play with Sabbath again until Ozzy Osbourne apologized to him for saying he was too fat and out of shape to participate in recording sessions for 2013 album 13 and the accompanying world tour.

Take a look inside Platten Pedro, Berlins hidden gem of a record store
Apr 17, 2015 3:15pm | Fact Magazine

The eccentric store has built a dedicated word of mouth following over four decades.

Platten Pedro opens every weekday morning at 10:07. That’s not because they’re a few minutes late, their website literally lists the opening time as 10:07 am — except on weekends when the doors open at 9:59. That is just one example of the wonderfully eccentric habits of Platten Pedro, which is both the name for the store and a nickname for its owner Peter Patzek which has become one of the best kept secrets of Berlin.

Opened by Patzek and his wife in what was originally West Berlin, Pedro’s collection grew to what is now over 100,000 records. There are no genre sections — rock, rap, classical — it’s all categorized alphabetically, with artists measured by the length of space they take up on the shelf. It’s a store you need to see to beleive, and now you can.

The Vinyl Factory recently headed to Platten Pedro and over the next several pages you can take a look at photos by Graeme Vaughan from the strange and wonderful store.

Apr 17, 2015 2:54pm | Chart Attack

Say what you want about Record Store Day, but it sure does create a lot of new music.

TIDALs CEO just left the company
Apr 17, 2015 2:40pm | Fact Magazine

Changes afoot at the streaming site’s parent company.

Business Insider reports (via Swedish news site Breakit) that Aspiro CEO Andy Chen has left the company. Aspiro, the parent company of TIDAL, is the company Jay Z acquired last month.

TIDAL has confirmed that Chen will be replaced by former CEO Peter Tonstad, but dismissed reports that staff members had been dismissed as “incorrect,” describing the changes as “streamlining.”

“[Tonstad] has a better understanding of the industry and a clear vision for how the company is looking to change the status quo,” the company said in a statement. “He’s streamlining resources to ensure talent is maximized to enhance the customer experience.”

The statement continues: “We’ve eliminated a handful of positions and refocused our company-wide talent to address departments that need support and cut redundancies. TIDALs offices globally will remain and grow: we are already hirinig for several new positions now. We’re excited about our future and what’s in-store for fans who want the best listening experience.”

“I believe in TIDAL and what the team is doing to affect the change the music industry needs,” Tonstad tells Breakit. “Were streamlining the company and refocusing our resources to ensure the platform continues to grow, and listeners ...


Watch the new trailer for Dope, which features ASAP Rocky
Apr 17, 2015 2:16pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Dope is a new coming of age story for the “post hip-hop generation,” directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Brown Sugar, Our Family Wedding). The film, which features ASAP Rocky in his big screen debut, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to much acclaim. It’s now slated for a wider theatrical release on June 19th. Watch the latest trailer below.

The film follows a self-proclaimed 90s hip-hop geek named Malcolm (played by Shameik Moore) as he attempts to leave behind his crime-ridden neighborhood in Inglewood, California for the halls of Harvard. The film also stars Zoë Kravitz, Forest Whitaker, Tony Revolori, and Blake Anderson, and includes cameos from other rappers like Vince Staples and Casey Veggies. Pharrell Williams executive produced the film and contributed to the soundtrack, penning four new songs for Malcolm’s fictional band.

Artists are not allowed to sell their Grammys even in the most dire of circumstances
Apr 17, 2015 1:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Not everyone keeps their Grammy in a shiny glass box for all the world to see. Just ask Kanye West, who stores his 21 gramophones in a sock drawer in his laundry room. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), the organization that hands out the awards, could pretty much care less what artists do with their respective trophies … that is, unless they try to sell them off.

Guitarist Dave Burgess is currently auctioning off a Grammy he and his ’60s rock ‘n’ roll outfit The Champs won back in 1959 for their hit song “Tequila”. And the NARAS is not pleased at all.

Burgess says he needs to sell the award because of financial problems. “I prefer not to sell my Grammy but there is an illness in my family and we have a lot of doctors bills.” The NARAS reached out to the musician, making it known that they oppose his selling of the trophy, even “hinting” that they may take legal action against him in the future.

As it stands right now, NARAS requires winners to sign a contract of sorts which forbids them to sell their prizes, though they may be passed on within the family when that particular artist dies. Still, it’s unclear when the policy was enacted. According to Burgess, he was never asked to agree to such terms when he won some nearly 50 years ago at the inaugural Grammy Awards, and believes this regulation came well after The Champs took home their trophy.

Montage Of Heck, the recent documentary about Kurt Cobain's life, might be the most comprehensive, honest portrayal of the iconic Nirvana frontman that's ever been done. That's mostly due to the skillful hand of the film's director Brett Morgen, who Courtney Love specifically tapped. V Magazine published a conversation between the two of them … More »
