BROODS | Pretty Thing
I love BROODS. Sue me.
I was just introduced to this awesome duo from NZ. They released their first EP in January, but look out for the upcoming full album in August.
I’m really proud of the fact I have to fight for a good reading spot in my local library. It tends to be full.

okay. THIS WOMAN’S GROOVE THOUGH.
So I had the pleasure of composing the soundtrack for this 3-minute short film a dear friend of mine shot and directed.
We’ve submitted it to a little competition sponsored by Johnnie Walker here in Brazil. Fun experience!
P.S. It’s in Portuguese. But the soundtrack is instrumental, if that helps..
The phrase “words to live by” gets thrown around often these days, but these are absolutely words to live by.
Whoa this is actually powerful
As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”
Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

Okay, so almost everyone knows Idina Menzel because of ‘Frozen’ or from her role as Elphaba in ‘Wicked’
Everyone, this is Kerry Ellis.
She’s a west end performer, who’s also played Elphaba in Wicked. This is a rendition of her singing ‘Defying Gravity’ produced by Mother.Fucking.Brian May.
Yes. Brian May from Queen.
I seriously recommend you watch it because it’s the Defying Gravity we all know and love, but with a rock sounding element similar to the sound of Queen.
