New Music Tuesday: When Life Throws You Lemons…

By Teighlor Bodrie Have you heard about the latest from The Beygency? Honestly, I can’t believe it’s taken us almost 3.5 weeks to talk about the visual album that’s captivated mmm, everyone? Okay, I confess, I talk about it almost daily – I’m sure the office is probably sick of it by now but, this […]

New Music Tuesday :: The Album That Has Captivated The World

It’s New Music Tuesday–fun, ongoing blog series here at Oneupweb–and it’s my week to write a post but I really only have one word…Adele.

Feelin’ Pharrell: The Best Pharrell-Produced Tracks

This past summer, I took the time to listen to the entirety of Pharrell’s production discography (including N.E.R.D. and The Neptunes) and my main takeaway was—he is a god. Skateboard P’s magic touch has singlehandedly made (and maintained) superstar careers including Nelly and Gwen Stefani/No Doubt. His recent jump into pop icon is entertaining, but […]

New Music Tuesday: NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concerts

One of my favorite sources of music is NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts. These concerts are “intimate video performances, recorded live at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen.” The series works well as an opportunity to showcase the talents of a wide variety of artists and musical genres.

MTV Unplugged by Daniel Hanson

In 1989, MTV launched a series called ‘Unplugged’, where artists would ditch their electric instruments and play acoustic sets for a live audience.  The underlying concept for the show was inspired by informal musical performances by Elvis Presley, with his 1968 Comeback Special, and The Beatles studio session’s documented in the 1970 film Let It […]

New Music Tuesday: A Sauna for the Soul by Dave Waeltz

I got married a few weeks ago. We kept our stress level pretty well under control but I don’t think either of us really took a minute to relax until this weekend. That’s when we took a long drive up north to the beautiful shores of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for a bed […]

New Music Tuesday: Great Albums, Shelved by Major Labels

Ever work your tail off on a massive project then have the plug pulled by some corporate change in direction, random happening or managerial whim? Well, of course you have. In publishing, stories get killed. In law, cases get dismissed. In product development, launches get halted, sometimes after years of work. In the music industry, […]

New Music Tuesday: A Merge Records Mixtape

Arguably the most successful independent record label of the last two decades, Merge Records has consistently been curator of the perhaps most eclectic, unique, and inventive recording artists bearing the loosely defined category of “indie”. But the bands on Merge aren’t indie for the sake of being indie – the music they make is genuinely different because the […]

New Music Tuesday – Gunship, Self-titled by Dave Waeltz

I’ll admit it. I’m in a rut. My iPod Classic died last week with every piece of music I’ve ever owned. I don’t entirely love streaming music services (I hate the need to be connected to listen to music) and it’s been tough finding new music. It’s been tough over the last few years to […]
