    via GOOD MORNING AMERICA

    "Dancing With the Stars" fans, wait no more. The season 20 star-studded celebrity cast was revealed today on "Good Morning America" and the competition is shaping up to be one of the fiercest yet.

    Television icon Suzanne Somers, music great Patti LaBelle, football star Michael Sam and Olympian Nastia Liukin are among the stars getting ready to rhumba and samba on the dance floor.

    Nastia Liukin, an Olympic champion gymnast, is paired up with none other than beloved pro dancer Derek Hough, who is back this season in a shocking surprise. Hough, a five-time mirror ball champ and Emmy-winning choreographer, previously announced his "DWTS" departure to perform in the Radio City Spring Spectacular.

    "This all happened literally two days ago," Hough said live on "GMA" from New York where he will practice with Liukin. "I had a little heartbreak not being able to part of the 20th season. I'm so glad we were able to make it happen. Let's make it the best season ever."

    "Shark Tank" mogul Robert Herjavec, “Hunger Games” actress Willow Shields, artist-actress Rumer Willis, “Party Rock Anthem” singer Redfoo and R5 singer-songwriter Riker Lynch will also be vying for the trophy this season.

    Wasn't sure if this was going to happen, but not having a scrappy journal I forget to update regularly has left me feeling slightly 'without'. So just about 2 months in and already a plethora of insanely good albums to imbibe your senses with. One thing I'm doing this time, is linking things in more useful ways. Adding Bandcamp links where I can and at least 1 link in the review to the band's facebook page (so you can make a habit of "liking" the stuff for further updates).

    The Body & Thou - You, Whom I Have Always Hated
    (97%)

    I had heard the news of this collaboration last year and was sort of reticent about the implications of this amalgamation of sonic forces (really, because it seemed far too good to be true). Prior to the release of 'You, Whom I Have Always Hated', I'd only indulged some (admittedly totally awesome) DIY live footage of the two bands simultaneously converging upon some basic but utterly crushing ideas. What makes this collaboration a truly special event is the fact that Thou and The Body (fb links) are both totally distinctive in their realm... it's not as if 2 generic doom bands have just decided to play at the same time. There's elements to each band's sound that are brought in and actually play out simultaneously in a cacophony I can honestly describe as being one of the very heaviest dins I have ever subjected myself to. The Side A on this album is from the EP that was only released on vinyl last year, and hence this is my first time hearing those songs. Although the collaboration feels like it's in its infancy in this first half, this only exacerbates a primal ferine element which most sludge bands would sell appendages to acquire. Come the 2nd half of this LP, it feels like the super band have become completely aware of the devastating tools at their collective disposal, and what follows is nothing short of disorientating. Beyond the Realms of Dream, That Fleeting Shade Under the Corpus of Vanity (official video) is the first of the "new" tracks and It contains everything that makes each band unique and brilliant in their own rite with even some new ground being covered in the 2nd half of the track which breaks down into huge slack pulses of bass which build until the cymbals crash back in simultaneously with Chip King's completely terrifying wails, which at the best of times give the amygdala a traumatizing workout. This moment just erupts in my system, sending paralyzing waves over me. It's quite widely available on CD and vinyl, but here's a link to Thrill Jockey Records' stock:
    buy.


    ____________________________________________________________

    Dynfari - Vegferð Tímans
    (94%)

    Dynfari (fb link) are a two piece atmospheric black metal band from Iceland playing with the sort of seminal, spirit accruing epic musical visions one expects from a nation largely made up of ancient glaciers and eerie barren, lunar landscapes. At the moment there are plenty of rumblings about Misþyrming, a fellow Icelandic collective with an epic and devastatingly sinister edge. I'm feeling really in my element with these 2 releases right now and am sincerely hoping the combination of the two records will draw more eyes to this emergence of sheer quality from Iceland's extreme music scene. The young duo are tapping into the same emotional dream world as Alcest and Les Discrets, with progressive arrangements and a massive sounding production, a morose nautical perspective is reflected. Hafsjór, A song containing some of my favourite moments on Vegferð Tímans is currently being streamed on Metal Hammer (direct link). Also, the label is hoping to use 'crowd funding' to release this on Vinyl. If my opinion means anything to you, this would be an extremely worthy addition to anyone's music collection.


    ____________________________________________________________

    Devouring Star - Through Lung And Heart
    (92%)

    Devouring Star (fb link) is a newly evolved project from Finland, playing exactly the sort of galvanizing black metal you don't quite dare to hope you'll find right at the dawn of a new calendar year. The musical ideas are built around expansive dissonant riffs, with glorious clashes creating gleaming and monolithic girth in the bands maliciously execrable, yet grandiose and honed sonic palate. Bands I would say are perfectly healthy reference points here would be Kreigsmaschine, Aosoth and Carpe Noctem. It's pretty much thanks to the feeling of discovery related to this band that I felt the urge/inspiration to keep up to this years best releases and start another journal of the same ilk to previous ones. 3 of the tracks are available to stream over on Daemon Worships Prod's bandcamp - bc.


    ____________________________________________________________

    Sea Bastard & Keeper - Split LP
    (90%)

    This split was specially chosen to adorn my new setup. I'm just not the type of person this kind of shit happens to... that one day I receive a call from a very close friend/ex band mate who is obsessed with hifi gear, offering me his rebuilt/reconditioned Wharfedale E-50s for the cost of nothing but love... he was desperate to know they were going to a good home (every time I've seen him since, I've given him an expensive bottle of vodka). So this split arrived shortly after I'd assembled this audiophile's mecca in my room. I think My eye balls have been an inch further apart ever since. I had never heard of or heard anything by Keeper (fb link) until I stumbled on a special preview of '777'. I'm quite shocked this band isn't making more ripples right now, although they are both very new and seemingly in their embryonic stage, which is a terrifying prospect, given how veteran they sound already. I predict their next full length, whenever that will be, is going to be absolutely huge. Sea Bastard (fb link), I am already a little more acquainted with. Their contribution is a slightly longer track. It's every bit as awesome and has a similar pristine, organic and bone crushingly vast production. From what i can make out, both bands brought their 'A game' here, which is what I really want out of a split, because it shows the bands are honouring one another enough to put a piece of their soul onto the record, instead of just chucking in some song that didn't fit on the last full length etc. Anyway, although I am totally ritualistically listening to this exclusively at my new shrine to sound, here's the bandcamp to get acquainted.

    Kalmankantaja - Metsänkulkija
    (88%)

    So it was 13 days into the new year, and I was starting to feel edgy. I quickly scanned my body for where this unease was emanating from, and it was my black metal gland, weeping out for something new, harsh and more than just half-decent. I had a dig around and this was one of the first things that came up. Kalmankantaja (fb link) is Finnish black metal. It is perfectly rough, and actually for something so awash with noise, it sits gloriously in my ears. It's not what you call a good a production, it's what you call an appropriate production... which is far more important. The only band from my repertoire I'd liken this to in the response it elicits is one of my very favourite black metal acts Finster. Despite the fuel for this project seeming to be the primal energies drawing truly from an absolute black essence, the riffs are all abundantly packed with harrowing and emotively imprisoning melodies, all carrying the genuine prestige of the best 'second wave' black metal. Go and enjoy probably the 'truest' thing that will appear on this years list:

  • Online Music Information : Song Titles - Artists , Groups

    8 feb 2015, 19:54 av music-offshore

    Hello All ,

    I did search for some websites where you can find Song Titles by Artists and Groups if you like Music and need to find the right information. See a list below that I make

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What is freedb ?

    freedb is a database to look up CD information using the internet. This is done by a client (a freedb aware application) which calculates a (nearly) unique disc ID for a CD in your CD-Rom and then queries the database. As a result, the client displays the artist, CD-title, tracklist and some additional info.

    This is a full text search interface to the freedb database :
    http://www.freedb.org/freedb_search.php

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Free DB.org

    FreeDB.org is another database of music metadata; it is the open version of CDDB. It was formed in response to the actions of Escient, which through its subsidiary, Gracenote, bought the rights to CDDB and restricted access to the data.

    FreeDB took the last available snapshot of data, and created their own server and database. Technologically, it has remained fairly static since then, but it has amassed a very large number of releases. The quality of the data is not always the best, and there is a lot of duplication in the FreeDB database.

    There is a web interface to FreeDB but most access (lookups, submissions) takes place via the FreeDB protocol (which may be embedded in HTTP, but is not really accessible via a browser). One of the advantages of this protocol is that it is practically the same as the original CDDB protocol, and could thus be used as a drop-in replacement for CDDB when Gracenote took it over.

    As a result, FreeDB has taken over as the de-facto standard CD recognition database for open source music software. MusicBrainz has many features included to import data from FreeDB. Eventually, it is hoped that MusicBrainz will take over from FreeDB as the preferred open-source free-database way to look up CDs, especially since Gracenote has since developed (and is forcing customers to switch to) CDDB2, a proprietary replacement for the original CDDB protocol.

    Note that there is a FreeDB gateway, which allows you to request MusicBrainz data through the CDDB protocol.

    Alert.png You must carefully examine the FreeDB data since it needs to be corrected in most cases to confirm with the MusicBrainz style guidelines. Also, it is good practice to provide proof of your release in the edit notes – FreeDB is not considered as a proof, as their submissions process is not monitored.

    Music Brainz is not unique as a database of music information. There are at least the following others : https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Other_Databases

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FreeDB compact disc database

    FreeDB is online database of compact disc track listings. It was originally based on the now-commercial CDDB (compact disc database). FreeDB holds more than 2,000,000 audio compact disks.

    FreeDB is designed for developers of audio and music software. Common users may use the online search on the FreeDB website.

    To find disc information over the Internet, a client software calculates unique disc id and then queries the database. If the disc is in the FreeDB database, the client will able to retrieve and display the artist, album title, tracks list and other information. This information can be used inside audio files (tags) or different cataloging utilities.
    FreeDB related software

    MP3 Tag Editor - useful software to manage music collection and download tag information from Internet. WinAmp - popular audio and music player with FreeDB support.

    Online Music Information Databases

    It's essential to include music metadata in your music collection, to keep it navigable and well organized. But how do you get the information in the first place? Tools like bliss may find the information automatically, and sometimes you know the information yourself, but what if you need to look something specific up? Here's a list of music information databases that can be accessed online.
