Madonna compares France to modern day Nazi Germany
Feb 28, 2015 10:18am | Cosequence Of Sound

Madonna has spoken out against what she perceives to be as rising racial intolerance in France, going as far to compare the country to a modern day version of “Nazi Germany.” The pop singer made the comments during an interview with a European radio station this week.

“France was once a country that accepted people of color,” Madonna said. “It was once a place that artists escaped to, whether it was Josephine Baker or Charlie Parker or writers, painters, whatever. It was a country that embraced everyone and that encouraged freedom in every way, shape, or form — freedom of expression, artistic freedom, for example.”

“Now, it’s completely gone,” she continued. “It’s like, to me, you know, I said this two years ago, it’s like we’re living in a crazy time. It feels like, you know, Nazi Germany. All of these people … the intolerance, the level of intolerance that’s going on is really scary. It’s not just happening in France, it’s all over Europe, but it’s specifically in France. Anti-Semitism, I think, is at an all-time high, people are becoming, behaving, and reacting in extremely fearful ways, so it’s scary.”

This is not the first time Madonna has associated France with Nazisim. During her 2012 tour, she juxtaposed images of France’s National Front Party leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika and Hitler&#821...



Taking Back Sunday/Brand New Beef Is Still Hot After 15 Years
Feb 28, 2015 9:30am | StereoGum
For anyone familiar with the early ’00s emo scene, the bad blood between Taking Back Sunday and Brand New was (and still is) the beef to end all beefs. It started, most appropriately, over a girl, and has taken on a mythic quality since the inciting incident over a decade ago. Here’s a quick rundown: […]

The 10 best synths for iPad
Feb 28, 2015 7:17am | Fact Magazine

The iPad isn’t just an expensive tablet for replying to emails while watching the TV – it can be a serious production tool in the right hands.

On top of the expected range of pick-up-and-play apps for iOS that allow you to sketch musical ideas down on the move or make whole tracks in just a few minutes, Apple’s App Store is full of more professional tools.

Although there are a select few available for iPhone, it’s the iPad that offers the best selection. This list looks at 10 of the best softsynths available for the iPad; reasonably priced yet professional apps that can be incorporated into a full studio setup. Most synth apps are also now compatible with the Audiobus app, which allows easy audio streaming between apps inside the iPad itself.

If you’ve ever wanted to experiment with modular synthesis but can’t afford it, or play a vintage analog synth on a bus, then read on.

Musique concrète composer Tod Dockstader has died
Feb 28, 2015 6:22am | Fact Magazine

The renowned composer was 82 years old. 

Known for his work in the musique concrète field, Dockstader worked as an apprentice film editor in Hollywood in the mid-’50s, before becoming a sound engineer in 1958. He was also responsible for creating sound effects for ’50s animations like Tom and Jerry, Mr. Magoo and Gerald McBoing-Boing. 

Dockstader released his debut album in 1960, Eight Electronic Pieces, and continued to release music throughout the decade (Eight Electronic Pieces was also used as the soundtrack for Federico Fellini’s 1969 film Satyricon). After Gotham Recording Studios, where he worked, was shut down, his recorded output slowed down, but a series of ’90s reissues found him new recognition as a composer, and he released a succession of new albums between 2004 and 2006, including the three part Aerial series.

More recently, Dockstader had work reissued by the Mordant Music label, who paired him with contemporary remixers such as Ekoplekz.

Dockstader’s death was confirmed by Justin Brierly, who is working on a documentary about the composer, titled Unlocking Dockstader.

“This evening my dear friend and musical inspiration, Tod Dockstader passed away”, Brierly writes

What's going Saturday? (Screaming Females, Disappears, Behemoth, Gaslight Anthem, Summer Moon & more)
Feb 27, 2015 11:01pm | Brooklyn Vegan

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Disappears, Suuns, Christines @ Rough Trade
Chicago's Disappears just released Irreal, the band's darkest, most paranoid/obtuse record yet. That's not a bad thing and, mind you, it may sound different when they play it tonight as their songs tend to change after they've played them live for a while. Armed with an insanely good rhythm section, they're worth seeing anywhere, anytime. Same goes for Montreal's Suuns who have a similar krauty / sinister edge. Local boys Christines open and sound a little like Swervedriver. Highly recommended.

Screaming Females, Priests, Tenement, Vacation @ Knitting Factory (2 shows)
Screaming Females are already known for their shredding guitar solos, but the new album Rose Mountain has the band focusing a little more on great choruses. It's up their with the best of their previous work. Tonight's their second and third of the four NYC shows on this current tour. All three openers are killer too.

Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, AEON, Tribulation @ Webster Hall
This all-death metal bill is co-headlined by Poland's Behemoth, whose 2014 LP The Satanist was hugely and deservedly acclaimed, and one of Americ...
