"What Rhymes with Klonopin™?"
Well, I'm waiting for the answer...
Hell yeah for the Wood Brothers and Dawes!
Tom, what about the other 50-75% of both Ben Fagan and Elise Testone's records that were tracked and mixed at Truphonic?!? I'm an intern there and witnessed them both! Just sayin'
Cant think of a more deserving duo.Hardest working people(like these two) need to do good and have good.It gives us a hope that this will survive in this kardashian era.Not to mention the awesome talent they have.This has always shined thru.
Lololol. Yes, you are wrong; good thing you qualified that statement. "Femisphere" is definitely spelled "Femisphere." :D
I might be wrong, but I believe it's spelled "Hemisphere". Perhaps someone should inform the ladies about this oversight.
Music inspired by sea creatures and igloos! Does it get any better than that? I think not. Except, of course, the writing styles of Kailey Miller. It doesn't get any better than THAT.
Can't wait to go see them! Another great article by the always fabulous, Kailey Miller.
So, in Charleston, "noise rock" is pretty tame rockabilly with entirely too much reverb?
I will be there Candice to support you!!!
"And get better he did. Mars' last two albums — 2009's Like a Bird,"
So he reinvented himself 4 years ago? Timely reporting!
I don't think you really understand my point Ron. Let's use MacDonalds vs. Five Loaves as a comparison. Five Loaves is a business, they want to make money, but they don't want to be "mainstream" like MacDonalds. I'm sure if Five Loaves got offered to franchise all over the nation, get TV ads, billboards, and toys with kids meals, they would decline. Not because they don't want money, but because that's not the dream they had for their business. Similarly, H&P probably doesn't want big "mainsteam" bands because although they are more profitable, it's not the dream they had in the beginning. If one of their bands becomes huge, bigger than H&P can handle/afford, then yeah maybe they will let them go. Not out of hipstery, anti-mainsteam angst, but out of a respect for the originality, freedom, and mission of a small, local record label. Call me naive or a hippy, but not everyone is out for the big bucks.
In my opinion, if he had truly "ditche[d] the frat-boy life", he should be charging more for students, not less.
It doesn't look like he's completely shaken it to me. Methinks he occasionally acts frat-esque to this day.
I'm sure one of the two "street team" people posting in this thread could tell you all about it.
I'd like to know more about exactly how he ditched the frat-boy life.
Thanks in advance!
Tickets still available at the door at 7:30 tonight - $20 or $15 with student ID. Credit cards accepted.
"It'd make money, but have no itegrity."
Very few record labels can be said to have integrity, regardless of who they sign.
If they run a successful business, and some of the bands they sign become popular, and then "mainstream," I trust they will then be released from the label for making them too much money.
Mr. Liberte, although filet mignon and fine wine are better than wings and beer, many restaurants choose wings and beer. They are going for cohesion, for a theme, a style. Labels don't only have to sign the biggest selling artists to succeed, they need a specific demographic and type of fan to appeal to. That way they get return customers who trust the labels signing choices. This label has been smart at who they choose, that way when I hear H&P are getting a new band, I can assume I'll like them, because I like essentially all the other ones. Imagine a label with The Beatles, Stones, Barbara Streisand, Elton John, Jay-Z, Biggie, and Raffi. It'd make money, but have no itegrity.
