  • Jack White Pens Poem "music is sacred"

    Jack White Pens Poem "music is sacred"

    Jack White is one of the artists involved with Tidal, the artist-owned streaming service launched by Jay Z. Over the past week, he's been contesting the frequently brought-up argument that the service mostly exists to help rich artists get richer. In an online Q&A this past Wednesday, White pushed back: "What is elitist about it? Who's speaking for the little guy?"

    Tonight, he's penned a poem for the Third Man Records blog entitled "music is sacred". It addresses the "sanctity of music" and those who threaten it: "jump in front of demons,/and stand over cowards and those who would intend/to rip out your lungs and dampen your desire". Read it below.

    Read "Tidal and the Elusive Promise of Streaming Music" on the Pitch.

    music is sacred

    those of you who stand for the sanctity of music
    so that its soul can breathe
    and be heard
    so that it blooms in graveyards
    echoes in hotel hallways
    awakens neighbors in the night
    and fills peoples minds with fire
    shout it out loud with whatever microphone you have
    or these stones will shout for you.
    jump in front of demons,
    and stand over cowards and those who would intend
    to rip out your lungs and dampen your desire
    tell the living and the dead
    what you know in your heart to be true
    and what you know your ears
    will forever hear
    that the melody of the human race
    is a song that never ends.
    music is sacred.

  • Twin Shadow Cancel More Tour Dates Following Bus Crash

    Twin Shadow Cancel More Tour Dates Following Bus Crash

    Last month, Twin Shadow and their crew were involved in a highway accident near Denver that left twelve hospitalized, among them drummer Andy Bauer and John Crawford, the band's driver. After postponing a large chunk of their upcoming summer tour dates, the band were hoping to hit the road once more in the coming weeks to support their new album Eclipse.

    Unfortunately, that won't be the case, according to a new statement from the band posted to their Tumblr tonight. Twin Shadow have cancelled all their dates through August to allow the those involved to heal (their previously-announced September gigs still stand; find them below). Find the post, titled "We'll be back soon", below the jump.

    As many of you know, towards the end of our North American Eclipse tour we were involved in a serious tour bus accident that left members of our crew and band as well as myself, injured. The injuries vary from minor to very serious.

    Recently I had reconstructive hand surgery and have begun physical therapy. I’m working hard to regain basic function in my hand and to get to a place where I can play an instrument again.

    The tricky part of being involved in something like this is that certain injuries creep up on you long after the accident. Recently I started experiencing pain in my left knee and went to see a doctor. Upon reviewing my MRI the doctor found a tear in my PCL and Meniscus. Fortunately, surgery can be avoided with physical therapy and limiting the stress I put on my knee.

    Doing shows at the moment would put me at risk of not fully recovering and needing knee surgery. As a result I am sad to say that we need to cancel the remainder of our shows through mid-August.

    Taking this time to heal is important for everyone affected by the accident. We plan on being fully recovered and back on the road by mid-August. Thank you to the Twin Shadow family and those of you who continue to support us.

  • Diplo Teams With RiFF RAFF, CL and OG Maco for "Doctor Pepper"

    Diplo Teams With RiFF RAFF, CL and OG Maco for "Doctor Pepper"

    Diplo has shared his latest posse cut, "Doctor Pepper". It features a hook from K-pop crossover star CL (who leant vocals to Skrillex's "Dirty Vibe"), plus verses from RiFF RAFF and OG Maco. Listen to the song above.


    CL told The FADER the story of the song’s origin: “Diplo canceled a session on me, and I was so mad at him. I was drinking a can of Dr. Pepper and wrote the song so I could go home as soon as possible,” she said. “Diplo ended up loving it!”‘ 

    Diplo also commented on the song's international feel: "'Doctor Pepper’ is something that might not register that well with actual K-pop, seeing as it’s a straight Atlanta-style rap record, but the net around K-pop is so wide that it can be anything with confidence and style," Diplo said.
