Interesting music video

This video is pretty cool... Here's the behind the scenes on how they made it (kind of long):



Going Gaga

There's something about Lady Gaga's Poker Face song that's got both Cartman and Christopher Walken performing it. Hilarious. Warning: it's sure to get stuck in your head. This video covers 3 different parts of the South Park episode where Cartman's singing the song: Chistopher Walken reading...



Musical coincidence?

I was listening to my Ipod on shuffle this morning and a song I haven't heard came on. It was Black Sheep by Saliva. But as I listened to it, I couldn't help but feel it sounded very familiar to something... so very familiar.... (The video above includes the totally ridiculous lyrics)



Nine Inch Nails teams up with YouTube for fan-created submissions

You may recall that a week and a half ago, Nine Inch Nails released the Ghosts album for $5 via online purchase. It looks like they're looking to expand on that, saying they deliberately didn't include any visuals or information to accompany the music in order to allow users to create their own. More...



Get the new Nine Inch Nails album...36 high-quality tracks for $5

Yep, there's a new NIN album out...it's a 2-CD album, with 36 tracks. And it's yours for 5 bucks! I've already mentioned how Trent Reznor is no longer under contract and wants to get creative with music distribution, cutting out the labels, high prices, and DRM that prevents you from using music freely...



Trent Reznor-produced hiphop album can be downloaded free (legally)

It's been less than a month since Radiohead turned the music labels on their head by releasing their album for free on the internet (they weren't the first, but they were the biggest band to-date to do so). At the time, Nine Inch Nails got released from their contract with EMI and Trent Reznor was promising...



Music how you want it

In the current chaotic state of the music industry with big labels battling out contracts with legit download services (a la iTunes) and fighting people pirating music for free, all while refusing to change their business model, it's nice to see people embracing change. Why sit there fighting the digital...



Amazon launches DRM-free music store; cheaper than iTunes

Amazon launched the public beta of Amazon MP3, which lets you buy MP3 versions (and high quality - 256kbps!) of your music so there's no restrictions on how/where you can use it. And they're beating iTunes on price, with the top 100 songs at $0.89 and the top 100 albums at or below $8.99.



Want a new iPod? Play the waiting game

I was excited last week. I had been waiting over a year to upgrade my 3G 20GB iPod because I knew a touchscreen version was in the works. The release of the iPhone added fuel to the fire of touchscreen iPod rumors, and then a bunch of websites confirmed that's what was going to be unveiled. But Apple...



Apple's new iPod lineup

Today Apple unveiled their new lineup of iPods, and there's some pretty crazy improvements that have been long anticipated. In a nutshell: The new iPod touch was unveiled, which is essentially an iPhone without the phone - instead of using a 3G phone network, it has WiFi. So you can still watch...



Wanted music player feature

There's a feature I've been wanting for a while in an MP3 player. It's pretty simple, but to the best of my knowledge nobody has implemented it. Basically, I like to put my music on shuffle so I'm not listening to the same few albums/artists all the time. But sometimes it will get to a song I haven't...



Modest Mouse video competition entry

This post on Wired about a Modest Mouse music video competition entry is pretty awesome. The maker of the video, Max Tyrie, says: Myself and a couple have friends have entered the above into the Modest Mouse video competition. Using green screen footage provided by the band we cut a simple music video....



Band in a Bubble

Dave submitted a story about a band recording an album in 20 days while locked inside a bubble. CARTEL are sealing themselves inside a huge transparent bubble on Hudson River Park's Pier 54 in NYC, where they'll eat, sleep and breathe while writing and recording a new album live for all the world...



Year Zero doesn't suck

The latest album from Nine Inch Nails, Year Zero, just went on sale yesterday. It's already stirred up a bunch of internet chatter because they leaked tracks from the album by leaving USB drives at concerts for fans to find and spread online. From wikipedia: A viral marketing campaign has emerged...



Fall Out Boy partners with P&G

Apparently in one of their new music videos, Fall Out Boy made a deal for product placement with Procter and Gamble to feature Tag body spray in their video. Since CD sales are declining but the cost of making a video is not, many musicians have made product placement deals for videos in the last...



Higher quality music without restrictions

Today Apple and the music industry's third largest label, EMI, unveiled that EMI's catalog will be available on iTunes without any DRM (Digital Rights Management). Removing DRM means you can get songs of higher audio quality (CD-equivalent) and without the restrictions on number and type of devices you...



iTunes 7.1 update adds fullscreen coverflow

CoverFlow was a very cool feature that appeared in iTunes in version 7. It displays your albums covers in a slick interface where you can flip through your collection (which left many scrambling to get missing album art :) Unfortunately it's pretty resource-heavy and won't run on all computers. But for...



The Pope and Bush listen to their iPods

dave submitted a story from iol about the Pope and others who have iPods. The Vatican - The Pope likes to unwind by listening to his iPod. Pope Benedict XVI was given an iPod Nano as a present by staff at Vatican Radio. Officials have loaded it with religious music, plus pieces by Beethoven, Mozart...



"Apple" sells 1 billionth song

dave submitted a link describing how yesterday, Apple sold their one billionth iTunes song, which was Coldplay's "The Speed of Sound." He also relatedly remarked "What did the lead singer of Coldplay name his daughter? 'Apple.'" From the NBC article, Apple said it was purchased by a computer user...



Another iPod nano, and iPod price cuts

Apple has introduced a new, 1GB nano for $149, and cut the price of the 1GB shuffle to $99 (the 512MB shuffle is now $69). This is seen as a move to compete with CD players on the low end and also to extend the nano offering. iPods now range from $69 to $399, as shown below.



Apple debuts video iPod!

Time to throw out that obsolete 20-gig only-plays-mp3s monstrosity. Apple has debuted it's new video iPods. One with 30GB for $299, and one with 60GB for $399. And of course, besides the storage increase they have decreased the size (30% thinner than the original iPod) and extended the battery life again...



iTunes on the go

Cingular is expected to announce next week a new phone that is made by Motorola that uses iTunes, according to The Financial Times. This effectively lets you have a wireless iPod, with the ability to purchase and download songs from anywhere. Much of the features are still speculation, since there...
