Spotify goes karaoke with lyrics update for desktop app
Mar 2, 2015 4:14am | Fact Magazine

You can now sing along to your favourite songs while you stream.

If you’re the kind of person that finds themselves firing up user-created lyric videos on YouTube to sing along to your favourite songs then there might be a better solution.

Spotify has just announced it’s adding a lyrics function to its desktop app, meaning you’ll soon be able to click a button and see a song’s lyrics pop up on screen. The function comes via Spotify’s recent partnership with online lyrics catalogue Musixmatch, and should work with most songs given its large user community of transcribers.

You can see the feature in action via the video below, which Spotify says should roll out to desktop users over the coming weeks.

Madonna - Rebel Heart
Mar 2, 2015 2:28am | Drowned In Sound

When the entire history of the human race is written, the final week of February 2015 probably won't be deemed the absolute pinnacle of our species stupidity. But it'll surely warrant a mention, at least.

Im not talking about those good ol boys in Isis trashing 9,000 years of human history, though there is that. Im talking about us infidels more or less living up to Islamist stereotypes of us by getting furious excited over (in reverse chronological order): a dress that looked funny; two llamas; and a lady falling over.

I am not professing to be above any of this, and should the black flag ever fly over Britain then Im going to be in as much shit as anyone. The dress was crazy, right? The llamas well, who doesnt love a llama, let alone two? And the lady who fell over wasnt just any lady: she was Madonna.

In the inevitable deluge of think pieces over what must have been either the second or third interesting thing to have ever happened at the Brit Awards, there was a lot of talk of agism in the worlds fascination with said tumble. But without wanting to come across as some sort of apologist Im sure agists were delighted  I dont really think so.

Firstly, having your Versace cloak fail to unbuckle correctly and dragging you over in the middle of a complicated dance routine is not remotely the same as your granny having a fall.

And secondly, Im not sure Madonnas age actually registers with people anymor...


Dalton - Dalton
Mar 2, 2015 2:19am | Drowned In Sound

The term 'singer-songwriter' has become equivalent in musical terms to the plague thanks to a deluge of identikit nondescripts clogging up the airwaves this past decade. Nevertheless, for every Blunt, Ezra or Sheeran there's always a creative ray of sunshine escaping through the cracks. In this case, one Nate Harar, who goes by the name of Dalton. A troubadour in every sense, Harar's nomadic existence has seen him recently take up residence in Los Angeles, and it was here that his self-titled debut was conceived. Having spent his early years playing in New York five-piece Sugar It's Eli before their break up four years ago, Harar decided to go it alone shortly after. Having put out a six-track EP - also entitled Dalton - in the summer of 2012, he's spent the interim period honing his craft in a way that draws comparisons not only with modern day contemporaries Kurt Vile and Ty Segall, but also references the past in places, most notably J Mascis and Dinosaur Jr along with The Replacements.

Indeed, as lo-fi, bedroom-recorded self-produced long players go, Dalton is something of a triumph for its creator. Interestingly borne partly out of an obsession with David Bowie dating back to his childhood, the ten songs that make up Dalton show a diversity many modern day singer/songwriters lack. Sure, there's a feeling parts of Dalton may have been sculpted by trial and error but that only serves to make Harar's efforts mor...
