After a legal dispute with Dr. Luke, who wrote all or nearly all of Kesha's well known hits. She dropped out of the scene for a while. Today she has released a new song written by Ryan Lewis of Ryan Lewis and Macklemore.

In "The Song Machine" it talks about how Kesha had wanted to get away from the party girl image and head towards a more rock oriented style. While this song achieves that goal, albeit in ballad form, it is a pretty weak showing as it is fairly stereotypical in its subject matter, especially considering her history with Dr. Luke.

The video opens up with Kesha questioning the existence of God while splayed out on the ground. Soon some sparse piano chords come in and Kesha begins singing to a person that hurt her. A version of the millenial whoop accompanies in the background as the song builds. Kesha talks about how she can make it on her own and how "when she is done they wont even know your [his] name," which is ironic, because someone else wrote this song for her and Dr. Luke still has many many more hits than Kesha and Ryan Lewis combined. The song reaches a weak climax and ends without ever becoming bombastic.

This song will surely grace the radio waves throughout the US, and will mark a new direction in the career of Kesha, but whereas her previous work had a definite signature sound, Praying sounds much more generic and one could easily mistake this song for having been performed by any number of artists. Lets hope that her new album will provide some more inspired material.

Definitely agreed this is not as inspired as her other work. It's a shame, this loses a lot of value due to the overly literal themes and generic sound. You can really hear she's playing her comeback safely.


pure shite, man. I've a mate that loves her, but she's pure shite


I only like Die Young by her, and I wouldn't disagree if you said that's overplayed or overrated either.

>After teasing his candidacy by selling yard signs, Kid Rock has confirmed that he will be running for U.S. Senate. In a new note posted on his website, he said that he still has 15 days to file paperwork with the FEC and make his run official. “It's not a hoax, it's a strategy and marketing 101,” he writes. He also called out Michigan Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow—the incumbent who he’s challenging in next year’s election. “Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind,” he writes. “I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I'll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!”

>Kid Rock also says that he’s planning to release new music during his campaign. “Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I'm planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT,” he writes. He later shared a 12-minute single called “Greatest Show on Earth.” Kid Rock recently shared a new website that sells merchandise with the slogan “Kid Rock for U.S. Senate.” He previously backed Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and performed at last year’s Republican National Convention. He currently sells offensive Trump-themed shirts.

Anyone here listen to Billy Couvson?
It's some strange stuff in its own rights, but the point is I think I may have found his equally incomprehensible and somehow enjoyable youtube channel. Here's a sample

This was a match made in heaven and babygrande ruined it ;_;


Totally forgot about these guys. They're pretty dope though

I have never loved these guys, but they have a few good tunes.

New single here:


I used to personally know their singer lol


Was he cool?


Never met them, but they're originally from very close to where I grew up. I first started listening to them when they were unsigned & still using the name 'Battleheart'. It was kind of bizarre to watch them get famous.

Due to some conversations in our discord (which you should join if you haven't already) I have decided to listen to the entire Linkin Park Discography.

>Minutes to Midnight

I didnt even realize this was only their third album, since the prior two albums contain so many well known songs. I think that this album must have lost them some fans as it does not contain nearly as much of their classic signature sound. Distorted guitars and sampled beats are only in a small minority of tracks. Many of the tracks are soft tunes that if you played them in front of your mom, she would probably think that you were a pussy. All that said, the soft tunes are pretty good musically. I also enjoy that LP seems to have expanded their sampling frontiers. Where on the previous albums you heard a lot of sampled beats, some of the tracks on this album seem to have improvised percussion instruments. "Given Up" for example, begins with what sounds like clapping and jingling change. I would give this album a 6/10 and I expect this album to have begun a downward trend for the rest of the discography.

>1000 Suns

This album is like LP pulled a radiohead and dropped all of their previous influences and made something completely new. I cant imagine that many of the fans of hybrid theory remained fans after this album came out. 1000 suns never sounds bad or lazy, it just sounds like something that I dont necessarily want to listen to. a few interesting tracks 6.5/10

>Living Things

LP kicks the intensity back up a little. This album has some truly good songs, like the ballad Roads Untraveled which has a wistful melody set to piano. 7/10 for LP albums

>The Hunting Party

This album was recommended to me by NW and I can see why. Electric guitar finally returns to the LP sound. This is easily the heaviest and best album since Meteora. The "classic" LP sound seems to be long gone, but you wont need that to enjoy this album. I especially enjoyed Guilty All The Same which has a more classical style of harmony combined with some of the heaviest guitars you will hear on this album. 8.5/10 on the LP scale

>One More Light

Wow, this is awful. This album is pure pop. You are almost disappointed that you dont hear any millenial whoops in this. I would expect to hear these songs in teenage girl clothing stores in the mall. It is really surprising that LP took this direction after their previous album having been so heavy. 2/10 on LP scale.

Music theory seems to me to be synonymous with the study of music. I think people are virtue signaling and not thinking about this enough when they praise this change for broadening the scope of the music department. Sure, generally classical music is what we think of when we think of theory, and classical is very white/male. I agree that it would be best if someone could get a music education that isn't classical-focused. But, if you aren't studying theory, what are you studying? History and politics alone won't make you a good musician. It would be better if academics looked for a way to reconcile theory and other styles of music than emasculate their music department for the sake of immediate diversity


This sums up my thoughts on it. Music is so holistic that excluding music theory especially seems ridiculous to me.


Why bother studying music if you don't learn at least a little theory?


I study music (music technology) but I never studied music traditionally aside from the occasional guitar grade as a kid. There have been a few times when I'd really wished I understood traditional theory better, however I worked around it.

One thing I've noticed is that the students on my course who understand theory all seem to go about writing music in the same way and end up with a more commercial result, and the ones like myself who don't spend a lot of time fucking around until something cool comes out or something just doesn't.

Anyway, music is very broad and very subjective. Who's to say how you can really study and appreciate it?

I don't know what I'm getting at here.
