Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed: New Remixed Production Music – 4/27/12

“They just don’t make ‘em like they used to!” If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard an elder say that, I wouldn’t need that Social Security check that my generation probably won’t get anyway. Despite the old tired saying, there is some truth in it. There was a time when music had to actually be performed and not programmed. And if you made a mistake on tape, you had to record it again thus leaving no room for amateurs. Those were the days! This week’s new releases from the Cavendish, Poke and Deneb Records music libraries blend the sounds of yesterday with a fresh new twist. Think of it in the same vein as Dre and Snoop jamming with a hologram of Tupac, minus the whole rapping thing. Respect!
 
CAV317-319 Archive Remixed
 
The Archive Remixed series is a marriage of old Funk and Soul with the modern synthesizer. Unlike Kim Kardashian’s marriage, this one is built to last! These tracks are seething with confidence and all around bad-ass-ery. You may need to pull out your shades to even listen to it, you’ve been warned!

Delving Into The Din Of Delirium: Quirky New Releases – 4/6/12

Making music is much like creating a painting. Sometimes you’re not in the mood to paint that pretty sunrise or an expansive mountain vista. Sometimes you just wanna squeeze a dollop of paint in your palm and smear it all around in a nonsensical swirl for no other reason than the fact that you can. And because let’s face it, rarely does life move along in a straight line!
 
This week’s weird and wild new releases from the Octopus Records, Amygdala, Deneb Records and Liftmusic libraries have some pretty awesome song titles to go along with the fun. My personal favs are Back Seat Funk, Bloody Rusty Saw, Frikin’ Bastard, Quickie Rock, Cheeky Chappy and Donde Es El Aeropuerto. So buckle up buttercup, let your hair down and get ready to get a little crazy!
 
OTP611 Eaten Alive!
 
In case you were wondering, the movie Eaten Alive! which appears to be filled with all sorts of awesomeness, really does exist! The plot synopsis according to IMDB is as follows: “A young woman teams up with an adventurer to find her missing sister in the jungles of New Guinea and they stumble upon a religious cult led by a deranged preacher whom has located his commune in an area inhabited by cannibals.” Ummmm…..yes please! With every amazingly horror-ble movie is an equally amazing score. OTP611 Eaten Alive! is that score. Please Octopus Records, send me the movie poster!

AMY027 Sensual Encounters
 
It seems like the couple making out in horror movies is always the first to get it. Keeping with this tradition, AMY027 Sensual Encounters reminds us that it doesn’t pay to make out when there’s a killer on the loose! Blending cheesy 70′s funk with tongue-in-cheek retro horror themes, this CD is bound to please any horror buff with an appreciation for the all-too-cliche pairing of sex and death.

DNB730 Psychedelic Symbolism
 
DNB730 Psychedelic Symbolism sounds a lot like a flashback. For those of you who dabbled in the 70′s, this one’s for you! Combining avant garde analog keyboards and spaced out jazz drum set grooves, this is definitely a CD to listen to with a black light on and incense alight.

LIFT071 Quirky Wacky Things
 
LIFT071 Quirky Wacky Things sounds like a musical clown raided the local thrift store and made a CD with an old Wurltizer, Casio drum machine and various souvenir percussion sold at Island resorts laying in the dark corners of the store. Being serious is a serious bummer!

Library Of The Week: Octopus Records
 

 
I have been very vocal about my love for Horror movies on this blog over the years. When I was informed that the Primrose Music Library unveiled their new period Horror movie score label Octopus Records, well, I was ecstatic! Beyond the fact that the album covers are amazing (I’m not kidding when I say that I want those movie posters….EBay?), these film scores from the 1970′s and 1980′s are the real McCoy. Not retro remakes, but real scores. Talk about street cred!! These tracks will add instant cool to any production, get on it!

Hot Stuff With No Fluff! New 5 Alarm Music Releases – 3/23/12

A lot goes into making a good record. I still use the word record even though music has gone the way of the MP3, call me old fashioned! When music hits you in all the right spots, it’s never an accident. The artistry behind the songs and production all come into play. Capturing sound and the best performance is an art in itself!
 
The 5 Alarm Music Library has two new and exciting additions to our catalog: 05A092 Soul Revival and CTM003 Cinemasounds Trailer Music 3! The continuous goal of going beyond what is expected from a music library is well realized on these releases. Our philosophy of quality over quantity ensures that our CDs are hot stuff with no fluff!
 
05A92 Soul Revival feels like a time machine taking you back to the Motown days of bee hive hairdos and all the way back home to 2012 where powerhouse singers like Adele and Florence + The Machine dominate the radio airwaves. This celebration of Soul blends positivity and emotional liberation all in one CD featuring a team of top notch composers – David Gross, Stephen Boyd, Christina Kaufman, Greta Matassa, Jim Rast, Bob Merrell, Keely Whitney and Paul Richardson. These powerful female vocal tracks pack some serious ‘tude and aren’t afraid to ruffle some feathers! It reminds us that sometimes she’s just not that into you either buddy, get over yourself! On the other hand, the gents sing their songs of seduction and a gratitude for our beautiful world. There’s a little something for every soul!

A Splash Of Local Color: New World Music – 3/16/12

When I moved to Los Angeles in 2004, I must admit I was typical of most LA transplants. I wanted to see the Hollywood sign and admire the stars that line the sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard. These are the shrines of the entertainment industry after all! It doesn’t take long for you realize that seeing the Hollywood sign means having your friend take a picture a mile away from the actual sign while blocking traffic up Beachwood Canyon much to the dismay of those who actually live on the street. And seeing the stars on Hollywood Boulevard means walking the grimy street full of tacky gift shops full of cheap merchandise while getting your picture taken with a midget dressed like Mr.T for $5 (he gets mad if you don’t pay up front, just a heads up). The moral of the story? The locals know where to really go. Like the Magic Castle or the Hollywood Bowl for all of you about to visit LA!
 
This week’s new releases from the Cavendish Music, Pennybank Tunes and Amygdala Music libraries are refreshing splashes of local color as seen by the natives. Nothing Hollywood Boulevard about it!
 
CAV297 – CAV306 – ECK World Series
 
Be sure to bring your canteen and backpack on this expedition!

The ECK series, or Editor’s Construction Kit, from the Cavendish Music Library is designed in layers so you can choose versions that best suit the production. For those of us not up to the challenge of backpacking through the Andes Mountains or the Sahara Desert, this is the next best thing!

Is There An Echo In Here Or Is It Just Me? New Atmospheric Production Music – 2/3/12

Claude Debussy once said, “Music is the space between the notes.” Thanks to the little inventions known as reverb and delay pedals, the space between the notes can be much longer than in Debussy’s time! Like a slow moving fog, atmospheric music can expand the emotions of a scene. This week’s new releases from the Strip Sounds, Liftmusic, Zero3 and the 9 Lives Music library stretch out the notes that much more to make you fall inside the ethereal expanse. Whatever you do, don’t close your eyes while listening. You might drift away……
 
STRP028 Drone Continuum 2
 
This CD is about as close to feeling like an astronaut floating through space you’ll ever hear. STRP028 Drone Continuum is one part slow motion, one part wonder and two parts atmosphere. I’ll take a double!

The Many Faces Of Indie: New Indie Production Music – 1/6/12

It’s 2012 and we still don’t ride in spaceships or live in dome huts above the clouds……*le sigh.* Skype is about as close to fulfilling the futuristic lifestyle portrayed in The Jetsons, although jet propulsion would really come in handy during LA rush hour traffic! One thing we CAN look forward to in the new year is great new music!
 
My 2012 started off with a quest for discovering new music through the internet. One thing I can tell you – Indie is still going strong. The funny thing about the term “Indie” is that it appears to be a blanket term for popular music….kind of what the term “Alternative Music” morphed into during the mid to late 1990′s. All it took was for Spin Doctors to be grouped in the Alternative category to kill that term dead. As long as Nickelback stays far away from Indie, we’re all good!
 
This week’s new releases from the Justement, Focus Songs, JW and Made Up Music libraries illustrate the many faces of Indie Rock. Think of it as a grab bag of the tastiest sounds of 2012! Happy new year!
 
JUST072 Indietronika
 
Electronica has a warm and cozy home within the Indie genre. With technology evolving along with creative uses of keyboards, many artists are wise to the endless potential of synthesizers and samplers. JUST072 Indietronika blends glitchy beats with dreamy melodies resulting in comforting imaginative soundscapes. Float on!

Library Of The Week: Liftmusic
 

 
There are two main types of cliques in high school: the nerds and the cool kids. The nerds were the kids who got good grades, opened the door for old ladies and later turn into the Steve Jobs of the world. The cool kids wore the most current fashions, blended just the right amount of humor and aloofness and their parents never seemed to be in town judging by all the raging parties they would throw on Saturday nights. Rarely did the two camps mix. What does this have to do with production music you ask? Liftmusic is the musical equivalent of smart and cool, a match made in heaven! Blending music seeped in tradition with a fresh new take on the most current trends, there’s a whole lot to like about this library! Take a listen:
