Essence Of Minds returns with 'The break up!' album with exclusive CD extras (not available on the download)

After the EP trilogy "Escape", "Hate" and "Wrong" Norway's Essence Of Mind returns with a brand new album - "The break up" - which will be out on April 10th. For their 4th album the band decided to give the buyers of the physical format, the CD, some extra tracks which will not be included on the download version of the album which can now be pre-ordered on Bandcamp (and in the next days on iTunes and Amazon too).

As a bonus the physical version of the album features the powerful melodic and 80's tainted electro rework by Technomancer of "Wrong", the dancefloor remix by Xenturion Prime of "Hate" and the exclusive mix of "The Other Side" by Vigilante.

Below you can already listen to 3 tracks which show a very mature band at work. Recommended especially for those who also like APB and Zeromancer!

Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) to release instrumental album 'MG' on Mute

Martin Gore to release instrumental album 'MG' on Mute

Out on April 28th via Mute is a new solo album by Martin Gore, songwriter and founding member of Depeche Mode. Titled "MG" it holds 16 electronic instrumental tracks. Written and produced by Martin Gore, "MG" was recorded following the final dates of Depeche Mode’s Delta Machine tour in March 2013 at Gore's home studio in Santa Barbara. After finishing recording "MG", Martin asked Q to mix it. Q previously mixed VCMG's (Martin Gore and Vince Clarke) 2012 album, "SSSS".

"Europa Hymn" is the first taste of "MG" which has been served to the press (and is of course leaking everywhere), and after having listened to it, it seems that especially analog synth fans might like it. So don't expect anything similar to his "Counterfeit" albums but rather material that is way more basic.

The album will be out as download (get it here on iTunes), CD (buy it here) and also as a limited 3-disc vinyl boxset (you can buy it right here).

The track listing:

  1. Pinking
  2. Swanning
  3. Exalt
  4. Elk
  5. Brink
  6. Europa Hymn
  7. Creeper
  8. Spiral
  9. Stealth
  10. Hum
  11. Islet
  12. Crowly
  13. Trysting
  14. Southerly
  15. Featherlight
  16. Blade

Metroland to launch massive 3CD album: 'Triadic ballet' - pre-orders accepted now

Metroland's debut album "Mind The Gap" was an instant success when released in 2012. The band quickly gathered a loyal following with Kraftwerkian approach and sound and also ended up as support act fro OMD on several dates including a sold out gig in Brussels. More than two years have passed since that debut album, and since then they have released "Thalys" vinyl (2014), a tribute EP to the high-speed train, plus more recently the double download single "Zeppelin" which acted as a teaser for what was to come.

Today the band's label Alfa Matrix has announced a massive 3CD album set (no 'normal' edition will be available), titled "Triadic ballet". The Bauhaus-inspired deluxe edition features a normal album backed with 2 extra discs offering reworks by such artists as the Greek Fotonovela, Laurent Paranthoën's Commuter, Absolute Body Control and so on.

This release is available as a 3CD boxset or as a HQ audio download via Bandcamp (where you get 3 tracks now plus the complete album the moment it's released). (...)

(Photo by Giovanni Troilo) Drama in Chareloi, also often called Palermo à la Meuse, where mayor Paul Magnette (PS) is 'shocked' after the World Press Photo Award was awarded to the photo series as made by the Italian photo journalist Giovanni Troilo. In the series, where the journalist wanted to show the darker sides of the city, we can also see a very nice picture of à;GRUMH... member Steve Natrix (real name Phillippe Genion). But not so according to mayor Paul Magnette (PS) who says that the pictures, including that with Phillippe Genion, are staged and that they do not represent Charleroi.

Charleroi mayor Paul Magnette (PS) has in the meantime asked the World Press Photo Award to be returned.

Genion from his side enjoys the attention and is quite proud of how the project, and especially his picture, turned out. Here's a video taken from Genion's Facebook page where he says "and what is the first picture they will show on the tele...?":

Testing 1,2,3: Sporting Events Best Musical Performances

Live musical performances are often the highlight of some of the biggest and best sporting events around the world, especially when the teams or players are not performing at their usual world-class standards in front of sell-out crowds and fans. Millions of people tune in to the events from the comfort of their homes and some of the best and most memorable moments from the experience can come from the extravagant half-time shows and pre-game entertainment. As we touch on some of the best live musical performances that we can think of you’ll see that not every show or event is remembered for just its musical moments.

Katy Perry at Super Bowl XLIX (2015)
Testing 1,2,3: Sporting Events Best Musical Performances

The beginning of February saw the gorgeous pop princess Katy Perry tackle the half-time show at Super Bowl XLIX. It was an eye raising performance that was met with much approval from the fans and critics and featured plenty of surprises, dancing sharks and culminated in a spectacular firework display from inside and out of the stadium in sequence with the singer belting out her famous hit single ‘Firework’.

The 30-year old beauty worked her way through her back catalogue of catchy hit tunes and managed to swiftly hop into a new and alluring outfit as quickly as each new song was played in. There were some surprise vocal cameo appearances from the likes of singer and songwriter Lenny Kravitz as well as famed female rapper, and record producer Missy Elliott.

At one point the singer rode in on the back of a huge and very impressive mechanical tiger across the centre of the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. And it did seem that each single that was featured would be accompanied by some ‘obvious’ representation to that of the song in question.

Roger Sanchez at EPT100 (2014)
Testing 1,2,3: Sporting Events Best Musical Performances

Award winning international DJ Roger Sanchez has also entertained many with his musical talents, more recently at the EPT Barcelona tournament in Spain. Late last summer the versatile house producer, performer and promoter played a special three hour long set as part of the EPT 100th celebration party. The event was held at the Theatre Principal in Las Ramblas and marked the 100th European Poker Tour. The critically-acclaimed DJ was on hand to provide an amazing mixed set of hit tunes and dance classics.

Finding his own ‘Stealth Records label’ in 2002 and winning his first Grammy in 2002, Sanchez is rightfully known as a true house music pioneer



Beyoncé at Super Bowl XLVII (2013)
Testing 1,2,3: Sporting Events Best Musical Performances

Singer and songwriter Beyoncé was left with the responsibility for providing some half-time musical action and entertainment during the fiercely fought American football battle between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. The game played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and saw headliner Beyoncé being joined by former Destiny’s Child band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

It was the first Pepsi sponsored half-time show and at the time marked it as the second most watched Super Bowl in history. The show itself, a particular highlight once more for all non-footballing fans who have to endure the actual gameplay in order to wait for the highly promoted segment, featured Beyoncé at her powerful, sexy and booty shaking best. The set design all round was terrific and halfway through the memorable performance strutted out her equally hot musical friends to form the brief yet fantastic mini reunion of her former successful girl group Destiny’s Child.

Overall it was a solid half-time experience that never let up or took a dip in quality and managed to keep all viewers in and outside of the stadium entertained thoroughly. But of course with a performer as versatile and as talented as the 33-year old is she rarely has trouble keeping millions and millions of fans and viewers glued to their screens.

Diana Ross at the World Cup (1994)
Testing 1,2,3: Sporting Events Best Musical Performances

We have to head all the back to 1994 for this classic moment in music versus sport action during the ’94 US World Cup. It was legendary singer Diana Ross who scored all the headlines the next day, albeit not from her vocal talents but rather her slick footballing skills. Miss Ross, 50 years of age at the time, may have scored all the headlines but it was ironically all down to an absolutely terrible penalty kick.

In what is more commonly known these days as an “epic fail” and in typically over-the-top style the singer, shoulder pads and all, jogged through a crowd of band players across the middle of the pitch heading goalwards with her microphone in hand. At the end of the line of marching band members was a ball neatly placed on the spot ready for striking action. Now we are certain this particular move must have at least been rehearsed many times but still it managed to result in an absolutely appalling scuffed shot that went flying by wide of the goal mouth.

Unfortunately this awful miss was highlighted even further by the choreographed splitting of the faux goal posts which was set to happen right after the ball had been netted, which never transpired. Of course with billions of football fans and the media watching around the world there were plenty of witnesses to cherish the unforgettable blooper.
