The Hurting never sounded so good.
In the latest round of audiophile products, the Blu-Ray Pure Audio disc has surfaced as the new dominant format, with Tears for Fears seminal debut album, The Hurting, being part of …
Elton John's breakthrough album, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, will be getting a special re-issue this March 25th, 2014.
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road spent eight weeks at No.1 and went platinum seven times over in the U.S., thanks to the Marilyn Monroe song, "Candle in the Wind", dynamite "Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting", and the c-c-c-catchy "Bennie and the Jets".
I already own the 30th Anniversary Edition of this record on Double CD + DVD set, and I thought that was the ultimate collection... but clearly I am wrong because this upcoming release is really the grandmaster ultimate edition.
The upcoming 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road will be available in a variety of formats - including that new so-called "HD Pure Audio Blu-Ray", which we just previously reviewed the new format.
It sounds really expensive, so I may have to sit out on this new box set of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (even though that 100-page book sounds so cool).
Collectors! Here is a complete list of formats for Goodbye Yellow Brick Road:
1. 1-CD set: 2014 CD remaster of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering from the original analogue tapes. Digital equivalent editions: Remaster, Mastered For iTunes, HD Edition
2. 2-CD set: 2014 CD remaster of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road as above, 9 cover versions, best of Live At Hammersmith CD Digital equivalent editions: Remaster, Mastered For iTunes
3. Five Disc CD/DVD box set: containing standard album, 9 cover version disc, single B-sides and bonus tracks, complete “Live At Hammersmith” CD, DVD of Bryan Forbes’ 1973 film Elton John And Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye To Norma Jean and Other Things, and 100-page illustrated hardback book packed with rare photos, memorabilia and a new essay containing interviews with Elton John and Bernie Taupin). Digital editions for audio: Remaster, Mastered For iTunes
4. Standard 12” vinyl album. Mastered for vinyl by Doug Sax and Robert Hadley at The Mastering Lab, California. 180-gram audiophile quality vinyl with download card
5. Limited edition yellow vinyl available from store.eltonjohn.com
6. HD Pure Audio Blu-Ray album
Elton John is doing a ton of concert dates, but the one that I noticed right away is a long residency in Las Vegas at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace from 03/29/14 to 04/26/14. Don't live in Las Vegas, but still want to see the Rocket Man live? No problem! For two nights only in the U.S. on March 18 and March 26, 2014, CinemaLive.com, in association with Rocket Music Entertainment Group, Yamaha Entertainment Group of America and Universal Music Group will release a full concert in over 1,200 cinemas worldwide in over 40 countries.
Fleet Foxes was first called Pineapple, but they had to change the name since there was another local band going by Pineapple.
Elastica originally called themselves Onk and Vaseline (but they had to change it when The Vaselines threatened them legally). So in 1993, they became Elastica.
Radiohead was called On A Friday in 1995 because that's when they met to rehearse.
Oasis originally named themselves after a Beatles song called "The Rain", so the band name was Rain.
Blur was called Seymour
Coldplay originally started as Pectoralz, and then changed their name to Starfish.
Pink Floyd had several names: Sigma 6, The Meggadeaths, The (Screaming) Abdabs (or Architectural Abdabs), Leonard's Lodgers, The Spectrum Five and The Tea Set.
The Detour became The Who in February 1964... then that summer they changed their name to The High Numbers. When that didn't take off, they changed their name back to The Who.
Bjork was in several bands before going solo: Spit and Snot, Sugarcubes, and Gling-Gló,
SINEAD O'CONNOR O'Connor will be in America to do a series of residency dates in November 2013. Originally the tour was to take place in 2011, but that was quietly canceled due to various personal reasons. See complete tour dates on our previous article.

BELLE & SEBASTIAN AND GOD HELP THE GIRL We love B&S and GHTP, it's only too bad they're only playing big festivals at the moment.
08/17/13 "Paredes De Coura"
08/30/13 "Zurich Open Air"
09/01/13 "End Of The Road Festival"
Jennifer writes that the film was "Stuart’s story of the forming of Belle and Sebastian", so if you love B&S, it's definitely worth looking into.
As for the rest of God Help the Girl:
Asya who appeared on GHTP is currently in Chaos Chaos, but previously in Smoosh.
Neil Hannon (aka Divine Comedy) who appeared on the GHTP album is in a project called The Duckworth Lewis Method. Their new album Sticky Wickets came out last month, July 2013.
T.A.T.U. Ryan tries to forget t.A.T.u. rather unsuccessfully. No idea what the two Russian girls are up to these days, but Vu is still in love with Julia Volkova.
Apparently there was a t.A.T.u. reunion four or five years ago. Then as recently as in last year, in various interviews Julia and her t.A.T.u. partner Lena Katina does not keep in contact. That's is untrue, apparently the two will team-up once more to play Kiev (Ukraine) on September 27th, while Lena is playing Hangar 110 in Sao Paulo on November and Cologne in Germany
Julia recently appeared in a few singles in 2012:
Lyubov Suka/Back to her Future and Любовь-Сука (feat Dilma Bilan). She also appeared in a film called "Zombie Fever". Lena will be releasing a new solo album in 2013.
CLOUD The impossible to find Cloud band has an album called Comfort Songs that Ryan really loves. The album came out last week (August 5th) via Audio Antihero Records.
Song of the show is "Stomach Pit" from the album, which you can find more information on their bandcamp.
Bonus: XBONE or PS4? Cherie Currie from the Runaways is a 'cherry bomb'. Red Hot Chili Peppers could have been called Tony Flow And The Miraculously Majestic Masters Of Mayhem, or as Ryan would have it as TFATMMMoM.

Coming on the heels of their digital EP, The Secret, LA-based The Airborne Toxic Event is out on the road soon, in support of their upcoming 3rd full-length, Such Hot Blood, due April 16 on Island Records...…
The Airborne Toxic Event are a bit of an enigma. Blasting out of the gate to national attention in late 2007/early 2008 with the breakout single ‘Sometime Around Midnight’, the Los Angeles-based group never fully held our extended attention, but have recently and ably bounced back into the spotlight with their latest effort, Such Hot Blood (Island Records) and the singles ‘Timeless’ and ‘The Storm’. Their stadium-ready sound has always toed the line between inspired / influenced and indie / mainstream, perhaps making it difficult to embrace one type of audience or the other. But, playing to their largest to-date crowd in the Twin Cities Tuesday night, any comeback effort is being more than well received.
Dublin foursome Kodaline opened the show, promoting their self-titled ep (B-Unique/RCA), completely won the crowd over with their melancholy anthems and soaring choruses (think folk U2/early Coldplay). It didn’t hurt that many thought the Irish lads were also handsome and that they wrote a song specifically for Minneapolis for them to gain fans in a room that prior to their performance, very few had any familiarity with. ‘High Hopes’ and ‘All I Want’ were highlights from a band already playing a bigger sound than the venues they’re currently playing – with the right airplay and a little more stage charisma and maybe bombast, they could become the next The Script as far as popularity in the U.S.—a band to watch.
The Airborne Toxic Event then came out to a set decorated with two gnarled trees framing each side of the back on the stage, similar to the look of their first album cover. Lighting the fire, the band broke into ‘Gasoline’, an energy-filled opener from its debut album that got the crowd moving immediately. Following with ‘Happiness is Overrated’, lead singer Mikel Jollett was up in the balcony singing soon after, while Anna Bulbrook (viola, keyboards) rode on bassist Noah Harmon’s shoulders, tambourine in hand. While musically tight, the overall performance also echo’d a bit of familiarity and calculation about it – from Bulbrook performing on top of a piano to Harmon and guitarist Steven Chen dueling guitar sounds back and forth, the performance seemed more pre-planned than spontaneous, which may have to be the case when staging a 90 min. performance on a large club room tour.
Jollett freely admits being obsessed with death (the band’s name takes from a section of Don DeLillo’s White Noise), but mentioned his view changed recently after several close to him passed away in his pre-song intro to ‘Timeless’, which he dedicated to those lost. Following that with their biggest single, ‘Sometime Around Midnight’ which predictably got the night’s biggest response, Jollett also mentioned his memories of their first trip into the venue, opening for The Fratellis, then desperately selling t-shirts and CDs after.
AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT
The band ended the main set appropriately with ‘All I Ever Wanted’, which was the title track of their live album, as well as on their 2nd studio album, All At Once. Returning for the encore with the somewhat inexplicable song choices of a cover of The Magnetic Fields’ ‘Book of Love’; the somber lyrics of ‘The Graveyard Near The House’; and ‘Missy’, segued with an All-American medley of 'Ring of Fire / American Girl / Born In The USA'. While energetic, it left some scratching their heads as to whether the band was just trying to interpret some of their favorite songs, celebrate American music, or make the statement that they belonged in that company.
Despite their sometimes inconsistent studio output and without any clearer definition of their identity (maybe for the best at this point), The Airborne Toxic Event does continue to impress live, with their tight hooks and arena-sized sound stretching the boundaries of the smaller places they are playing.

In a recent conversation with Brody, we talked about what bands we would pay $500 to see. I said, if Morrissey & Johnny Marr and the two "lawnmower parts" Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce played a Smiths set - that would be well worth the five hundred clams. Brody, hands down, said it would be Coldplay.
He loves them.
So anyway, Coldplay is releasing their live album, Live 2012, to be out on Blu-Ray/CD, DVD/CD and digital on November 19th.
Live 2012 is the Coldplay's first concert film in nine years, it documents the band's Mylo Xyloto world tour. If you missed the tour, or just a massive fan, this is the perfect item for your holiday checklist.
Concert footage includes Madrid, Paris, Los Angeles, Montreal and at the Glastonbury Festival.
Coldplay is currently in Australia on tour:
Sat 11/10/12 Auckland, New Zealand Mt Smart Stadium
Tue 11/13/12 Melbourne, Australia Etihad Stadium
Sat 11/17/12 Sydney, Australia Allianz Stadium
Sun 11/18/12 Sydney, Australia Allianz Stadium
Wed 11/21/12 Brisbane, Australia Suncorp Stadium
Rest of the world, check out VEVO's live clip of "Paradise" (Paris clip) from Live 2012 at vevo.ly.
Surely you are familiar with these various compilation albums. It started off as "Now That's What I Call Music" but have spun off in many different specialty compilation, such as Now That's What I Call Jazz to Musica Latino to Holiday songs.
With over 80 "Now" albums in the original series (over 100+ in all the spin-offs), this is one of the most recognized various artists compilation.
To me, the people that buys these compilation are hardcore fans of one artist. Or they got it as a gift. Or they found it in the clearance bin. That's pretty much how I come across owning some of these Now CDs.
Anyway, Now That's What I Call Today's Christmas is out now and features Coldplay's song, "Christmas Lights."
We wrote about Rhythms Del Mundo about five years ago, we liked the modern-day bands like Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand but with a Cuban Latina twist.
Well, Rhythms del Mundo is back with a new project, they are once again, taking modern songs to an African beat! Yes, your favorite Beyonce, Mumford & Sons, and Coldplay are all getting the African treatment.
Look for this charity album, Rhythms del Mundo: Africa, to be out November 20th on The End Records.
The people behind Rhythms del Mundo are Artists Project Earth (APE), and they were formed by Kenny Young to help raise awareness for climate change and disaster relief projects.
They are hoping money raised by Rhythms del Mundo: Africa will help replant trees in the UK, Africa, Mexico and Brazil, as well as wetland conservations in Uganda, etc. You can find more detail on their work on apeuk.org.
Wondering what Coldplay's bassist Guy Berryman is up to? Me too. He's gone on to produce James Levy and the Blood Red Rose's album Pray To Be Free, out now on Heavenly Recordings and Cooperative Music.
You are probably wondering how Berryman got involved with James Levy, well, as it turns out, he produced The Pierces' 2011 album, You & I, which they covered Levy's "Glorious" song. I guess he must have gotten in contact with Levy through that album… at least that's my best guest.
Guy Berryman fell in love with James Levy and Allison Pierce's vocals, so he produced Pray To Be Free to sound like "romance in all its guises; dark, twisted, hopeful and joyful."
Clearly the big winner of the night was Adele, winning six Grammys: Album of the Year (21), Best Pop Record (21)…
Here is a review of the iPad application for Adele Piano Songbook and Coldplay Piano Songbook, both developed by Musicroom.com. Both applications are identical, complete with biography, more apps, and help options.
Since I don't know how to read music sheets, I am assuming all the timing, backing tracks and notes are perfect. I played the more popular hits ("Rolling in the Deep," "The Scientist," etc.), and they sound exactly as you would expect a pop song to be converted to "muzac." Just imagine if your favorite hits were stripped of vocals and the music replaced with piano melodies.
I have seen piano tribute albums going for $10+ and piano sheet music books for $20+, so having both these things appearing in one iPad app seem like a real bargain at $7.99 each.
I do have some minor issues/bugs with the application; for one thing it doesn't look great on landscape (you'll notice that 70% of the screen is white with a small music note in the center). It just seems to me that this app was design to read in portrait mode, and the landscape option was an afterthought.
If you swipe to the next page, the automatic paging turning stops working. I don't think this is a bug, but I found it annoying that the only way to get back to automatic page turn is to press pause and press start again. When it does work normally, the automatic page-turning feature is smooth and displays a live preview of the next page (this is perfect for anticipating the next set of keys).
Also, for an application that remembers your notes and annotations that you can leave anywhere on the music sheet, it sure doesn't remember the size setting! By default each song is set to "small," and will revert back to "small" when you go back into the song.
Outside of these small gripes, the software is solid. It didn't crash or show slow-downs, and the Noteflight notation piano audio sounded great.
If you're a pianist and want to play Adele and Coldplay hit songs, these affordable applications are perfect for you. You can pick up these apps on iTunes.

Happy holidays! It's also Sally's birthdate week, as she was kind enough to stop in to preview Splendour in the Grass, which takes place this July 29th to 31st. Doors at 9am, music starts at 11 and ends after midnight. Details at splendourinthegrass.com.
Before we get into the meat of the matter, we did wrap up NXNE, which you can read more details at nxne.weheartmusic.com and all my exploits and adventures and lessons learned.
I did touch a bit on Jo Williamson, not literally, but I kept running into her. Saw Washington played twice, saw loads of other bands too. Disappointed with Brian Wilson, but Men Without Hats, Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield saved the festival. Outro song is "Everybody Loves Me But You" by Hatfield.
Splendour in the Grass 2011 will be covered by the fine Festival Ladies, but Sally and I looked over Coldplay (it was all yellow!), Kanye West (he just shows up everywhere). A good bunch together of Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, Gomez, and Regina Spektor in a block is pretty amazing. Also, Grouplove, who I saw a few months ago, they are on the up and up. Yelle, the French girl is pretty hot too. Of course, Foster the People are a really good band, love their songs!
Amazed that DJ Shadow is still around, he pretty much was the first guy that made a whole album of just entirely out of samples.
Song of the Podcast is: British Sea Power's "Georgie Ray" from their new album, Valhalla Dancehall.
BONUS More Pulp than you can stand. Fitz & The Tantrums are playing the same night as Pulp, so Sally will have to miss out.
Britpop class of '95 article available on independent.co.uk spotlights on Justine Frischmann, Louise Wener, Debbie Smith, David Roundtree, and Tim Brown. Where are they now and what they are doing. Kind of glad to see Debbie Smith is still playing in several bands (I met her a long time ago in a bar and she asked about my t-shirt - it was my penpal's artwork of Morrissey).
Hey guys, just a few 'news' item to run through before I leave the house to see a concert. Since coming back from holiday, I've been finding it hard to get back into the writing/work mentality (I'm sure you know what I mean).
What I've been forward to new seasons of television shows! You can watch many of these shows on hulu (boo to their disabling PS3 browsers), including my anticipated "Flashforward" about the day everyone blacked out and saw visions of their future. It looks apocalyptic and co-star John Cho (the Harold in Harold and Kumar).

While I would like to attend, although I think they've long outgrown me as a band. Still, I'll always have their Kill Rock Star days, no? I also don't have their new album, The Hazards of Love, for review, but I suspect it was written on parchment paper in 1886.
Daniel Johnston (official/myspace) is also on tour. I'll admit to smiling to myself when I read his tagline: "hundreds of songs, and dozens of fans". He's got more than a dozen.
If everything falls into place, we'll have a review of his New York show. Shame he's avoiding the midwest altogether.

Finally, barefooted Nico Vega (official/myspace) have announced that they are on tour with, guess who? The Manic Street Preachers! I don't know how they do it! They've opened up for loads of great bands, and I'm sure along the way manage to convert a few fans!
Here are the MSP tour dates with Nico Vega:
