song to be performed

[Article] Is TS to blame why BAP is not as big in K-pop?

Highlights of the truths laid down in this article include:

“B.A.P. is able to change and adjust to more than one dramatic style”

“Now B.A.P. has come back with ‘Wake Me Up,’ a title track song that is far more sociologically driven than any other song I have ever heard in K-pop. They are unafraid to perform about topics and issues that would be “unpopular” in K-pop but once again, it reaches out to a more international fan base as it touches their hearts and their minds.”

“So what happened that prevented B.A.P. from becoming big? I believe it is TS Entertainment.”

“In the case of B.A.P., TS Entertainment had ‘clauses that violate civil rights and go against what is outlined in the Fair Trade Commission.’ Not only that, the distribution of profit was unfair as it was stated that since their debut, B.A.P. made over $9 million, but only gave each member a measly $16,000. That is not even minimum wage!”

“Sadly, a whole year of no promotions, no music, no fan interaction hurt B.A.P. As for their reconciliation with TS Entertainment, K-pop fans were happy but cautious. It is possible that TS Entertainment would backstab B.A.P. and go back to their old ways that drove the wedge between musical artists and agency in the first place.”

“K-pop fans got to listen to some of the most entertaining and innovative music they have ever made..touching on subjects with a deeper meaning, we can only wonder how B.A.P. will continue to grow. For me, I will say just one to two more years. Give B.A.P. just that amount of time and they’ll be big if TS Entertainment doesn’t screw them over again.”

Noel Gallagher joins Damon Albarn for new Gorillaz album

Damon Albarn has teamed up with his former Britpop nemesis Noel Gallagher on the new Gorillaz album.

Gorillaz announced on Thursday evening that they would release studio album Humanz on April 28 and gave fans a first listen to one of the record’s tracks, We Got The Power, on Radio X.

Albarn’s band Blur was known for its rivalry with Gallagher’s Oasis in the 90s, making the pair a surprising team for the song, but the singer said that Gallagher had performed backing vocals on the track.

The old animosity was a thing of the past, Albarn said.

“I mean now it feels like, completely, you know, not news at all really,” he said.

Gallagher, he said, was “really great”.

“He’s fantastic in the studio and it’s nice when you see how someone goes about their business.”

We Got The Power also features Albarn’s Blur bandmate Graham Coxon and Savages singer Jehnny Beth, who Albarn said brought some balance to the track.

He said: “I felt sort of at one point this song had Graham, Noel and me on it and it was just sort of heading slightly in the wrong direction.

"It was becoming very, kind of, retro in its spirit and the record it’s sort of, it’s the song that comes on in the final titles of the film, you know? It’s that mood that you leave a cinema with.”

Albarn previewed four new tracks on various radio stations on Thursday: “Saturnz Barz”,  “Andromeda”, “We’ve Got the Power”, and “Ascension”.

 There is even a 360 version of “Saturnz Barz”.

Ok so I’m watching their Okinawa concert rn, and I swear I’m constantly blown away by their guitarist. Like omg I’m so glad that she got to be a part of this tour. She’s fucking next level shit! I’m fangirling at her so much because she made their songs so much better.

Also, can I just say that 5h performs so much better now? They’re more natural and they look happy and ugh I love their interactions. They all look and sound so good now. I can only imagine how improved they will be on 5h3.

I’m now starting to regret I didn’t buy tickets for their Manila concert lol.

Delicate Steve: Tiny Desk Concert
This fierce and lyrical guitar player writes playful instrumental music led by hooky vocals — but there is no voice, just the human-like twang of a glass slide on a guitar.

You need only watch Steve Marion’s face. This fierce and lyrical guitar player, who performs as Delicate Steve, writes playful instrumental music led by hooky vocals — but there is no voice. His electric guitar is often played with a glass slide, mimicking a human being and bringing a palpable personality to his songs. The music swings from gospel to cartoon, melancholy to funny. Steve played all the instruments on his third studio album This is Steve, but in order to perform the songs for us at the Tiny Desk he brought along his band — Max Jaffe (drums); Jon Wiley (acoustic guitar); Jessica Pavone (bass guitar) and an old friend, a Panasonic FM/AM Premium Stereo Cassette hi-fi, to plug his trusty custom guitar into. The sound came out warm and a little worn, emphasizing a vocal range he loves. Enjoy their unique, charming performance.

When your cat catches you lipsyncing and dancing to Rupaul albums and when they look at you confused you just perform the rest of the song harder now that you have an audience.
