SLIPPING AWAY

Indie Music Press Releases (July 2018) - Discover the best emerging, underground & upcoming Electronic Rock artists, bands & labels with news updates announcing the latest music releases, live events/gigs, concert/tour dates, & other entertainment stories, articles & headlines from your favorite indie Electronic Rock performers & entertainers daily on SRL News.

They've touched the hearts of many both regionally and far and wide, and are loved and cherished for their authenticity as a band, their ingenuity and the fact that they are never afraid to try new things artistically and lyrically, and even live on stage. Their music blends 90s rock with electro and subtle hints of pop in such a virtuosic style that it's infectious and hard to resist every single time.

Unlike many fans today, Love X Stereo fans are more likely to complain about not being able to stop listening to their albums over and over than anything else - a very good problem to have for any band.

They are constantly being celebrated for their art and being invited to perform both locally and international, and have featured at some of the world's largest and most popular music events, festivals and award ceremonies.

Their next big gig is at the 2018 Baybeats festival in Singapore in August.

Love X Stereo is just as passionate about spreading love as they are about receiving it. They actively raise awareness about and support charitable causes, especially that of the abolition of cruelty to animals, which is rampant in their home region. The critically acclaimed South Korean independent electronic rock duo has just released their latest single and will be donating all the proceeds to charities working hard to shut down dog meat farms in Korea. The new song is an acoustic version of their track, "Slipping Away" which featured on their latest album, "37B". The band's famous rock star dog, DeeJay who is quickly making a name for himself on Instagram was rescued from one of such farms and they want to see more like him rescued. Follow DeeJay on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/deejay_thedog and download the single to play your part in ending cruelty to dogs in East Asia.

Washington, US radio hosts and R&B group, Dorothy Milone have been blazing a trail on the mic as well as on stage since their very first official single and are well on their way to becoming the genre's next big group. For dedicated R&B music fans, nothing could be more entertaining than watching a multi-ethnic, multi-talented and focused upcoming band that knows how to really do what they do right. From their choice of songs to their choice of wardrobe, they are bringing back the essence of the R&B music fans fell in love with and will always remember. Matching outfits, mesmerising choreography, tender vocal tones and harmonies with good range, meaningful and creatively outstanding visuals everytime they release a new single and down to earth personalities - that are very much missed in the music industry today. And what's more, they keep fans updated with behind the scenes footage of their journey every step of the way.

Two members of the group attended the 2018 Essence Music Festival. The Essence Festival is an annual music festival which began in 1995 initially as a one-off music event to mark the 25th anniversary of the popular women's magazine but has now been running yearly ever since. This year's star-studded event was packed with performances by some of the world's top musical acts and entertainers and upcomers including Mary J. Blige, Doug E. Fresh, Ashanti, Mali Music, Big Freedia, Fantasia, Janet Jackson, Erykah Badu, Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah, Miguel, Ledisi, Snoop Dogg, The Roots, H.E.R, Jussie Smollett, Keke Wyatt, Damien Escobar, and Daniel Caesar, just to name a few. Dorothy Milone put on a show-stopping performance with R&B singer, TV Producer and host of BET's Flava Zone, Chris Bivins. Of course we've got a short clip of it, just for you and we'll be sure to publish the full video once it becomes available.

Music News: No Plan B: Frank Palangi | The Indie Music Press Release Board | Frank Palangi


14-07-2018 18:01 GMT


NO PLAN B: FRANK PALANGI

Indie Music Press Releases (July 2018) - Discover the best emerging, underground & upcoming Rock/Indie artists, bands & labels with news updates announcing the latest music releases, live events/gigs, concert/tour dates, & other entertainment stories, articles & headlines from your favorite indie Rock/Indie performers & entertainers daily on SRL News.

Raw, gritty and positive are three words that so accurately define and are more often than not use to describe Brooklyn, New York independent rock sensation, Frank Palangi's distinctive sound. Just over a year ago, Frank celebrated 7 years as an independent rock icon and he has kept the ball rolling, and even picked up the pace as he rockets up the charts to rock music superstardom.

Having gigged very regularly on the east coast and surrounding regions of the US for several years, he is one of the most renowned indie acts in the region with a sizable fan base that cuts across several generations, right from young teenagers still in school to the much harder to please old school rock fans who know what the genre is all about, what it stands for and what it should sound like.

Frank is fully dedicated to his fans. When he's not out gigging, he's in the studio recording or writing new music, rehearsing, out shooting a video, or out making a movie. He also plays gigs online for his far away fans who can't come to see him live or who he can't get to on tour.

Frank is one of those artists that explores their creativity from every angle and pushes the limits of their musical instruments till they've got nothing left to give, and that doesn't exclude his vocal cords. Screaming guitars, loud percussion, passionate verses, powerful, infectious grooves and insightful lyrics reminiscent of the likes of rock music icons like Metallica, Ozzy, Def Leppard, Megadeth, Creed, Godsmack, 3 Doors Down, Daughtry, Three Days Grace and Shinedown are just some of what fans look forward to when Frank is in town or has a new song or album scheduled for release. His latest record, "The Terminator" was released on the 12th of May on iTunes, Spotify and top digital music services, and word on the street is there's more to come soon.

Being an avid filmmaker as well, Frank Palangi's fans are never short of behind the scenes footage, live music performances and other visuals to watch. His latest was released on the 12th of July, titled "No Plan B". Watch the video below, followed by a playlist of some of Frank's top music videos to date.

Music News: Too Busy | The Indie Music Press Release Board | Tamara Bubble


14-07-2018 16:48 GMT


TOO BUSY

Indie Music Press Releases (July 2018) - Discover the best emerging, underground & upcoming R&B artists, bands & labels with news updates announcing the latest music releases, live events/gigs, concert/tour dates, & other entertainment stories, articles & headlines from your favorite indie R&B performers & entertainers daily on SRL News.


In a world where rappers and pop stars are getting more and more preoccupied with telling us how amazing they are and how big their mansions are, it's always refreshing and exciting to listen to independent artists like Brooklyn, New York's Tamara Bubble who are more focused on the realities of everyday life than anything else, and who are never short of new subject matters for their songs and albums. It is for this reason she has amassed such a sizable following both online and locally independently and why hip hop fans, top music industry insiders and influencers, and critics have followed closely since she made her debut back in 2009 when she released the single, "Living it Up" and a series of other lyrically sound tracks like "My Photographer" and "Pull Them Pants Up".

Tamara continues to keep hip hop fans hopeful, staying true to her essence and only releasing good music that means something. Chasing mass appeal is something she doesn't ever do, but she appeals to more and more fans and new demographics with every new track effortlessly owing to her integrity and originality. Her latest album, "Your Favorite Rapper is a Girl" is still ranked one of the top independent hip hop records by a female rapper this year and is still racing up the charts rapidly.

Her new single, "Too Busy" was released only a few days ago on the 10th of July and is following suit.

Why music lost its commercial value, Pt. 8 - Keep away from my crack pipe, I don't want to hit yours either

07-07-2018 20:20 GMT
[WEEKLY SPECIAL FEATURE ARTICLE]


"WHY MUSIC LOST ITS COMMERCIAL VALUE"
SRL News Column exploring today's (mainstream) music industry.


WHY MUSIC LOST ITS COMMERCIAL VALUE, PT. 8 - KEEP AWAY FROM MY CRACK PIPE, I DON'T WANT TO HIT YOURS EITHER

Discover why music lost its commercial value in this weekly music analysis article exploring to day's music industry from the point of view of fans. July 7, 2018 - Keep away from my crack pipe
A special feature article by indie writer, The Ghostwriter

[Explicit]

This article was originally titled "N**** LGBT Please!", but that seemed too strong. It's one of those controversial articles that I feel could potentially get me fired in a hot second, but being the edgy writer I am, who is never afraid to push the limits of music journalism and shock readers even if just to get only a few more reads - here it goes.

Now as you may or may not know, I usually write this column on Sundays, however, I told my boss I was going to be sick tomorrow so I had to follow through and do it tonight ahead of a well deserved memory cleansing ritual this fine Saturday evening in London.

I'd tell you where I'm heading but to be honest I really don't want to see you - in fact, I doubt that I'll be doing much seeing tonight. Not unless you're shaped like a big onion or a pair of big juicy water melons.

You'll have to excuse my honesty there - it's summer time and everyone looks sexy in the summer time, and I mean every one. No it's not just you - there's something about taking off all those winter layers that just makes the world so beautiful. It doesn't matter if you've been working out or eating bags of chips all year round. I've had to shut all the windows and doors just to be able to focus and it's hot as hell in here. So let's get right down to it shall we?

Now this year's BET Awards kicked off in a way that shocked BET viewers like they've probably never been shocked before or in a very long time, and for many if not all of its old school viewers it was not in a good way at all. BET has been slowly introducing gay culture into its programs following in the footsteps of shows like Empire with new series that are being introduced to fill the humongous void that 106 & Park left behind. The TV network has never been the same since the popular music premiere and promotion program went off air, and it probably will never be, no matter how many pretentious 50 Cent or Gucci Mane shows air. BET has always mainly been known for music discovery but the good Debra Lee has forgotten that and seems to be more interested in copying everything E! is doing. More importantly we'll never forget Terrence J and the bedazzling Rocsi Diaz's chemistry and all the joy they brought to our lives. Yes, they were getting old but we would have loved to see them grow old together (is that weird to say?).

Now I don't watch live TV much since I'm usually too busy but I record everything and watch when I'm free. After tucking myself in one night with a well-sized bottle of Pinot Grigio that was neither half full nor half empty and a hooker of course (not) to watch the BET awards - with my hand closely guarding the fast forward button because I know how mindless mainstream television can get, I couldn't believe my eyes when a booty popping 35 plus year old man, with a juicy booty if I might add (yes I peeked, twice - sue me), with multicolored hair, make up and women's clothes turned up rapping, in a deep voice. What the hell was going on? I had been dreading this moment for years but I couldn't believe it was happening so soon. I found myself hitting the fast forward button quicker than I would a Drake record or a Kanye West record and not because I didn't like it, but more so because I couldn't bear or comprehend the thought of liking it. I couldn't believe it.

Now lets explore why.

In a very general sense, hip hop is about tough guys, just like action movies - everyone knows that. I wouldn't go to the movies hoping to see Arnold Schwarzenegger humping The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) or to see James Bond tongue kissing a man, and that's exactly the same with hip hop. Yes, we need equality in every field of entertainment and in the world as a whole but it's obvious very little thinking went into whatever this particular BET stunt was. How about a hip hop genre for gay rappers? Surely, they'd love that. After all they've got their own parade - straight folks don't even have that and we've been humping each other proudly for millions of years.

Now I'm not anti-LGBT, hell no - some of the nicest, friendliest and in fact some of the most pleasant people in the world are gay, how could anyone not like that? I'm sick of walking through the city and seeing miserable folks, not excluding myself with their problems written all over their faces - maybe we all just need a finger up our butts every now and again, who knows. I've never seen a gay man who wasn't smiling - in fact I'd love to see what that looks like. In the words of Dave Chappelle - "I'm not homophobic, I'm pro p****". I'm just old school, I don't want anyone going near my crack pipe (my butt hole) and I don't want to go near anyone's either.

Why does Debra Lee feel like it's time to force-feed us gay hip hop? This is not the time to be pushing music fans away and making them less likely to buy hip hop records or even stream them at all.

Why do LGBTs feel like they need to force-feed us their culture? No one's bothering them really. Yes, people get disgusted, kiss their teeth, walk the other way and even get angry in severe cases when they see gays showing public displays of affection, or even as little as holding hands but that's just life, everyone is entitled to feel however they feel as long as they are not hurting anyone.

It's the same way racists have a right to be racist, but don't have the right to assault other races just because they feel like. Am I the only one who sees things that way?

 So here's my petition to Debra Lee, the BET team, and mainstream media fat cats probably at the office eating chicken and counting their money ahead of another big night out on the town this fine Saturday evening - there's no such thing as gay hip hop.

 That's it. That's the whole petition.

Share this post to sign the petition or before long you could be waking up in cold sweats in the middle of the night after having dreams of being surrounded by luscious gay rappers twerking on you as you struggle without success not to get aroused, like I've been having since the damn BET Awards.

 Damn you Debra Lee! And to think I had a crush on you (I still do - wink, wink).

Gay rappers need to create their own genre - LG rap, LG pop, etc. Surely, that would be much cooler, much more authentic and much more exciting than trying to convert "straight hip hop" fans - who will never go for it and could potentially rebel.

Music News: More Good News From Washington | The Indie Music Press Release Board | Afton Prater


07-07-2018 17:17 GMT


MORE GOOD NEWS FROM WASHINGTON

Indie Music Press Releases (July 2018) - Discover the best emerging, underground & upcoming Country artists, bands & labels with news updates announcing the latest music releases, live events/gigs, concert/tour dates, & other entertainment stories, articles & headlines from your favorite indie Country performers & entertainers daily on SRL News.

During the last week we spoke about how the US's most popular city, Washington hardly ever has any uplifting or heart-warming news for the world (unless someone's pocket/belly is getting fatter behind the scenes somewhere and it's not us). We brought you some good news then, and here's some more.

US country pop singer songwriter, Afton Prater is on the rise, and after 9 years honing her craft, having started at the early age of 11, it's exciting to see it all paying off.

Though she has shown immense growth as an artist over the past couple of years and her sound has evolved vocally and performance-wise significantly, the young multi-talented Washington independent artist, who officially started her career in music back in 2014 at 16 when she released her first official EP, "Stay with me" has managed to maintain the same artistic qualities and demeanor that fans fell in love with - her innocent voice and soft speaking tone, her gentle, heart-warming guitar rhythms and melodies, and her carefully crafted lyrics about life and love, just to name a few.

With two solid EPs and several highly regarded singles over the years including "Barbed Wire", "Hey Country Boy", "Old Soul", and her latest and most highly rated record to date, "Bless Your Heart", she has won over the hearts of independent (indie) music fans far and wide, and owing to her family-friendly demeanor garnered a solid fan base that cuts across multiple age groups. Afton also has a good number of live gigs and appearances under her belt and performs regularly in and around Washington. Her next gig is on the 24th of July at Gig Harbor in Washington. Full details of the event and upcoming US concert dates are available on the Skunk Radio Live Events page. The new single, "Bless Your Heart" is available to stream and download on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and top digital music services.

Music News: Finally, Some Good News From Washington | The Indie Music Press Release Board | Wylder

FINALLY, SOME GOOD NEWS FROM WASHINGTON

Indie Music Press Releases (July 2018) - Discover the best emerging, underground & upcoming Folk artists, bands & labels with news updates announcing the latest music releases, live events/gigs, concert/tour dates, & other entertainment stories, articles & headlines from your favorite indie Folk performers & entertainers daily on SRL News.

It's the world's most watched city and possibly one of the most famous but Washington, USA has had its ups and downs in recent times especially with the election of the new US president who has quickly become known for his unorthodox ways.

Luckily, Washington folk band, Wylder is always on their toes, making sure the iconic city never has a dull day. Having played at some of the region's top live music venues and concert halls regularly since their debut only a few years back when they were called Saving the Arcadian, they have brought joy to many who have had the pleasure of discovering them and they continue to bring reassurance to fans who like their favorite genres to retain their essence. With so many genres being merged with pop in one way or the other, Wylder is one of those bands that manages to appeal to many yet stay true to their original sound. Their first album after their name change, "Rain and Laura" was released back in 2016. The critically acclaimed 10 track album featured their new single, "Bitter" and "Sunstroke", one of their top records when they were still called Save the Arcadian. The album still ranks as one of the top independent folk releases from the region today. In February, they released another highly regarded record, "Live at White Star Sound", a short 4 song EP which was recorded live at White Star Sound, a private state-of-the-art recording facility located on a historic farm outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. Like all their previous works, it has received a lot of praise from critics, fans and industry insiders alike who all hail the band for their authenticity.

Wylder has just announced that they are back in the studio recording their next full album. There are no official release dates yet but we are expecting to hear more about the new project soon.

20 million plus records sold, several world tours, a major career set back that cost him a record deal, over 15 years since he made his debut and St. Louis, US rapper, Chingy is still selling out arenas.

Though he continued to release music sporadically after losing his deal, his latest record marked his official come back. His new single, "F.Y.R" was released back in October last year and was quickly followed by the official music video, and then the EP, "F.Y.R the EP". The new EP is a solid 4 track album that reminds hip hop fans what they have been missing and have been longing for for a very long time. Chingy still maintains his smooth, slick, versatile, nursery rhyme style and but continues to evolve progressively as an artist. He is still gigging very regularly and his loyal fans, who have stuck with him through out the lows of his career, as well as new fans always come out to show him love when he's in town. He recently brought his family out on stage at a recent concert and released this video.
