MP3: Slingshot Dakota Release “Gossip” From New Album (FILTER Exclusive)

After a long stint of performing in punk basements and opening at VFW hardcore shows, Slingshot Dakota are finally set to release their new album, Dark Hearts, on November 6 via Topshelf Records. And from this release, we have the stream of their poppy new single, "Gossip," as a FILTER Exclusive.

And the fact that the band only consists of Carly Comando on keys and Tom Patterson on drums makes them all the more impressive. Surely, they will be making lovers of pop punk everywhere dance along to their music.

Slingshot Dakota will also be touring with The World Is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die throughout the fall. Check out the dates and stream "Gossip" below. And while you're at it, pre-order Dark Hearts here.

Listening, Behind the Scenes: Phoebe Kiddo, Traveling Through Earth and Space

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Artists,Scene | Wed 10 Oct 2012 5:14 pm

Phoebe in the studio. Photos for CDM courtesy the artist.

The enchanting, carefully-handcrafted music of Phoebe Kiddo is yet another example of the wonders coming from under-the-radar digital artists in the production Renaissance now underway. We got to host Phoebe on our MusicMakers party last month in Berlin – full coverage of that show, with video, coming soon. Now, Phoebe tells CDM a bit about making music as a globe-trotting nomad, and how she works with monome live and in the studio.

Phoebe’s music mixes taut beats and delicate, low-fidelity timbres with dense arrangements and spacey dubs. Her voice cuts dreamy melodic lines across introspective grooves that can then accelerate into clicky staccato. This is a fanciful trip on a spaceship, yes, but it’s a finely-tuned spaceship; her productions show inside-out attentions to detail that eschew sound-alike copying.

Phoebe’s new release is upcoming – you’ll certainly read about it here when it drops. But Phoebe tells us a bit about how she managed to squeeze music making into travel, and other challenges I expect readers here will easily recognize. She starts about the trip that has led her from Down Under to the Golden State, USA to the capital of Germany. And she is as reflective as the music she makes:

As a musical pilgrim for the past year and a half, moving between Australia the States and Europe, I had to adapt my musical practice to suit the limitations of travel, cutting back on gear, working on a laptop, then in studios whenever and whereever I had the opportunity. I was very much relying on the kindness of friends, new and old, and adapting to whatever hardware was a hand at the time. Fortunately, this journey saw me in some very well-equipped studios working with hardware I would otherwise never have encountered.

Most of the music has been written between Los Angeles and Berlin, two places that could not be more diametrically opposed, musically, culturally, architecturally. I have come to believe that wether you intend it or not, the creative process is affected by the collective energy of a place, and as such, I was left with two distinctively different yet somehow related sounds. The work grew into two pieces, both long play-format sonic adventures that reflect the depth of psychic experience the pilgrimage took on. I have a affection for high-end details, syncopated rhythms, spacey-sounding synths and sub bass sine waves that you’ll hear throughout.

Nostalgia for the Future: Favouring samples complimented by synths and [Elektron] Machinedrum (my baby) is a sun drenched tale of remembering imaginary futures yet untold, the eternal experience of disintegration into newness, longing for familiarity in the utterly abstract, loathing of the ordinary, known routines and eternal restlessness. The painful experiences that will somehow be romanticized in a distant incarnation of ourselves. A nostalgia for that which awaits us. Existing simultaneously in multiple dimensions, dragging parts of ourselves screaming from places they have found a ground to stand on. Belonging nowhere and to no one. Having nothing to hold onto, no point of reference, no trajectory. Operating from complete trust and the highs and lows associated with such a life, as existence gently guides us or violently shoves us from one moment to the next.

Deep Space Serenade favours Jupiter, Juno, and a Korg Delta that I completely fell in love with in my friend Alexkid’s studio. It’s deep, rather sound design prone. It meditates on the natural tendency to flow into connection and the pain of separation. The latent grief waiting within love’s embrace. When I left Australia, I said to myself I would travel until I fell in love, seeing and hearing everything inspiring that could, working tirelessly to create something beautiful to offer the world. This piece is a serenade, spaced out, sometimes heavy, always deep. It’s a reflection on the catastrophe of love. The devastation of a truly deep connection and how that can tear you completely from the comfort of solitude. Being wrapped in our own riddles until on occasion that perspective arrives to remind us, who we truly are, and what we have the capacity to become.

I also asked Phoebe to tell us a bit more about her use of the monome in performance. It’s a familiar instrument to many readers here, of course (some of you using it yourself), but I did see it get a lot of attention in her performance with us last month.

I use a few patches, depending on what I’m doing.

For the show at MusicMakers, I used sevenup live for [monome] 128, which functions as a looper, drum machine, melodizer, and midi controller within live. You can drop tracks, parts, build drums, do effects, control [Ableton] Live, etc., depending on how you program it. It’s really versatile; although it has its limitations and annoyances, it’s pretty good all-rounder for performance.

Lately, I’ve been playing with traknome [for NI Traktor DJ sessions], which I think I will end up using sometimes in future; there is such a huge amount of preparation that goes into a live set that I would prefer to reserve for when my drum machine is functional again and use my [Access] Virus (my fave synth for performing, it has so many accessible parameters) & [Ableton] Live – accompanied by visual content.

I’m really interested in audiovisual music languages and am planning to delve into the world of [Cycling '74 Max/MSP] Jitter once this second release I’m working on is finished. It’s a whole new level of nerdiness I’m quite looking forward to, and I feel it’s important to support the conceptual element of my compositional framework. In which case I will either build or adapt a patch to include visual triggers to accompany the audio ones. Until then, I’m thinking traknome dj, effects & drums is a nice compromise.

As we wait on the upcoming releases, Phoebe shares some terrific listening. (I have heard the upcoming releases, hence some of my description here, and can testify they’ll be worth the wait.)

For now, there’s the wonderful Psyche:

And a new song:

For a podcast, Phoebe has produced a “Mixtape for Dreamers,” available via Mixcloud:

And, some reading:

I just started this blog, which I will maintain from now with things I find inspiring; this usually spans poetry, literature, contemporary art, music, spirituality, new media, etc.

And more reading elsewhere … a review of Phoebe’s performance at MusicMakers:

Her production is perfect and shifts in dynamics were just eye-opening, there would be a fairly intense track with clustered beats and several layers that moved beautifully into the sounds of a single piano being hit. Her use of bass/low-end in the basic percussion of her work is very innovative with sounds that you could find in an industrial track if you wished but in this context comes across as dubby and atmospheric adding to the vibrancy of the overall sound – it feels alive.

Phoebe tells that blog:

I never sent music to record labels, I’ve just quietly been plugging away, exploring and developing my own artistic voice, and in no rush to publish work.

Some things are worth the wait. Wonderful things are coming. We’ll be listening.

FCC Commissioner Proposes Review of the AM Band to Make it More Competitive – What Can Be Done?

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Wed 10 Oct 2012 4:02 pm

At the NAB Radio Show, Commissioner Ajit Pai delivered an address discussing a number of topics, including a proposal for the FCC to undertake a study of AM radio and to come up with a plan to make that service more competitive. We cover many topics here on the Broadcast Law Blog, and often write about changes in service for FM radio and television, as well as the digital media, but it seems that our coverage of AM mirrors the FCC’s attention to the service in the last few years – relegated primarily to situations where struggling AMs run on a shoe string budget run into the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau because of some significant violation of the Commission’s rules. So what did Commissioner Pai propose, and is it realistic to expect real reform of the AM service?

The mere fact that the Commissioner proposed a study, and one to be completed in just over a year, is in and of itself encouraging. The NAB has been internally conducting a similar study, though no results have been released yet. The AM band has suffered from many problems, including a decrease in the quality of AM receivers as FM has become much more dominant, and the increase in background “noise” creating interference to AM service – all sorts of electronic devices that are now so common everywhere, including many of the lights now used both indoors and outdoors, create interference to the AM service that make listening, especially in most urban areas, difficult. So what can be done?

The Commissioner proposed several possibilities. Among these was the idea of an across the board increase in AM power. A similar power increase on a much smaller scale was done for certain low-power AM stations about 20 years ago when these stations were perceived to be suffering from interference issues. Perhaps this proposal has some merit, thought there may also be many issues.  How can certain AMs already at 50 Kw increase power, especially given today’s concerns about RF radiation? (I’ve heard stories from engineers about very high power AM transmitters in other countries that probably would not excite those concerned about the radiation effects of transmitters) In addition, careful consideration would have to be given to how power increases could be done in such a way so as to avoid raising the actual interference levels between AM stations. These issues and others would have to be carefully explored.  A petition to allow such a power increase was actually filed at the FCC several years ago (see our article here).

The Commissioner also proposed studying whether AM synchronous transmitters could be used – essentially a system of low power repeaters instead of the higher power transmitters now used. Alternatively, he suggested anti-skywave transmitters that would decrease the interference that AM stations cause to each other. One industry professional suggested after the speech that such a proposal might require a repeal of the laws of physics, which is obviously outside of the FCC’s jurisdiction. We would be very interested in comments by others as to the likelihood of such a proposal being technically feasible. Obviously, it’s worth review, but may well be very difficult to achieve.

One proposal for AM improvement was not discussed – a proposal to use TV channels 5 and 6 as a way to re-invent the AM band – moving all AM stations to what is in essence the FM band (as TV channels 5 and 6 are adjacent to the FM band), allow them to operate digitally, and avoid the many interference issues inherent in the current AM band. This proposal has already been advanced by the FCC, comments have been received, and they could be acted on tomorrow (see our previous articles on the subject here and here). This proposal is complicated by the FCC’s incentive auction proposal and the concern that these channels might be needed for TV stations reallocated out of the UHF band. So it appears that this proposal is, at least for the time being, on hold.

We’ll watch with interest to see what develops as will, we are sure, many operators of AM stations.
