Music industry update | New York, USA | Indie artist, Tamara Bubble

Released for pre-order on the 21st of January, 2021, “Wayward” was Brooklyn, New York rapper Tamara Bubble’s first single of the year. Following just over a month after the release of her Christmas single “Holiday Party”, it did well to set the tone for what is already looking like a pretty amazing year ahead for the fast-rising female emcee, who gets exponentially further away for her peers and closer to hip hop superstardom now with every new track. The new single was produced by Pennsylvania, US Emmy award-winning songwriter, music producer and composer Mikey Meiers. It premiered during Season 11, Episode 5 of the popular Showtime US television series “Shameless” on Sunday, the 31st of January; and is available to stream and download on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, YouTube and all popular digital music services, as well as Soundcloud and selected music promotion platforms for indie musicians and bands.

Music industry update | New Hampshire, USA | Indie artist, Eyenine

The music industry, and the world as a whole is slowly but surely emerging from the shadows, as if from hibernation, as 2020 goes further into the past; lockdown restrictions are tentatively eased; and Coronavirus vaccines are rolled out one vulnerable age group at a time from the top down. Everything is slowly getting back up to speed here as well, and all the amazing independent and underground musicians and bands we know and love so much are emerging with new projects and amazing tunes they’ve been working on during the course of lockdown. They've all been nothing short of spectacular so far. 

This week, New Hampshire, US underground hip hop star and battle rap champ Eyenine emerged with news about a new music video in the works. For anyone who knows about the Dover sensation this is big news, not only because he is so amazing on the microphone but because he is so creatively masterful that when visuals come into the picture his works become nothing short of masterpieces that will be frozen in time as future hip hop classics in a category of their own somewhere between the reincarnation of hip hop and its 9th death. So what’s this music video then? Well, there hasn’t been any word about whether it’s a new track or a video of something already released but we’ve got a few pictures from the first night of the video shoot below (and above). Think you can guess what it is? Tweet @SkunkRadioLive. Full details about the video, behind the scenes clips, release dates and streaming availability will be provided here as they emerge.

Music industry update | Seoul, South Korea | Indie band, Love X Stereo

Having an analogue childhood and a digital adulthood leaves a lot of room for error but a lot more room for excellence. However, Xennials are more often than not paid less homage and in some cases even given less  attention than they deserve. With knowledge of both the analogue and digital eras of life on planet Earth, they could potentially be the most invaluable generation of human beings this century, if not the entire history of humanity has had to offer. But enough about the title of Seoul band Love X Stereo’s latest album, and what it’s trying to tell us. Let’s get right down to the music and how good (or bad) it could potentially be. 

Much like Xennials, Love X Stereo is a type of band that only comes around once in a lifetime. They are not just talented; they are prolific, they are perfectionists, and they have become nothing short of virtuosos in their own rights. With 9 or more critically acclaimed albums under their belts, the trio turned duo has never disappointed, and have in fact grossly surpassed every expectation with every new release. When they release music, it’s full of life, it's meaningful, and it's monumental all at the same time. Released on the 20th of January, the new album “Xennials” features 7 new tracks and is available to stream and download on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music and all popular digital music services. It is also available on Compact Disc (CD) and its release was complimented by a lot of exciting “Xennials” merch which can be purchased alongside the album on Bandcamp or directly from the band’s website.

Musicians and bands bring us a lot of joy in our daily lives, so getting a cheeky sneak peak behind the curtains, even if just for a couple of seconds to see what goes on behind the scenes in the recording studio, rehearsal studio or even the dressing room is always exciting. Almost every music fan would naturally get a rush from knowing what their favorite musicians are playing with, although sadly not every one of them has the pleasure of experiencing it. If you are like us, you’d like to go a step further and touch and feel it too (nothing weird though, but if you are a rock star you WILL catch us fingering your guitar backstage if you leave us alone with her, and we’ll tell you the same thing we say every time we get caught - "she was begging for it" 😊). 

Let that be our little secret though, or Frank Palangi will be cringing at the thought of what might happen following the recent revelation of his favorite studio microphone earlier this week. Don’t worry Frank, we won’t kiss it when you're not looking. 

Well so here it goes. The go-to microphone for New York’s critically acclaimed, often emulated but never duplicated independent rock star extraordinaire, and the only guitarist to make the US national anthem sound like a psychedelic classic since Jimi Hendrix; is the Shure KSM44A multi‑pattern capacitor microphone, which is great for a wide variety of studio applications including everything from vocal recording to electric bass and kick drums. It’s been shown several times in at least 4 of his music videos but if you haven’t seen it there is a picture of it below.

Music industry update | Texas, USA | Indie artist, Big Money Brezzy

It’s been just over a month since his last single “Pepsi Vibes” was released on the 25th of December and the Texas, US rapper is back with another one that is poised to kick the Austin underground hip hop maestro's 2021 off in a very spectacular way. The forthcoming club record, which is titled "Numbers Jumpin" is expected any day now. Official release dates for pre-order, pre-save, streaming and download are yet to be announced however, he released a sneak preview in the form of a live performance video of the track earlier this month on the 7th. More details about the new record, dates and availability will be provided here as they become available. [Watch sneak preview below]

Music industry update | New York, USA | Indie artist, Frank Palangi

Gritty, classic, and with positive vibes all the time, Frank Palangi is without doubt one of the most exciting independent New York musicians to listen to live or recorded. He has made a name for himself and had an illustrious indie music career by releasing music that means something, not just to him but to his fans as well. The Upstate New York star quickly became one of the popular faces at some of the East Coast's popular live music venues, festivals and community events and since the start of the pandemic his popularity online has grown almost exponentially through live streaming events and web series. 

After blowing fans away with an all-electric show back in January, he recently announced that he'll be playing a similar show, but this time all-acoustic. With a set list featuring songs from all his 4 most recent EPs, the gig has been scheduled for March 6, 2021 at 6 PM EST on Facebook Live.
