Check out a demo of "Beat It" performed only by Michael Jackson's voice. Holy shit. If I was writing some viral headline I'd tell you how this will just about blow your mind-hole.
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....

The Republic Of Wolves have released a "new" song called "Kaspir."
When we were writing and recording for our latest album, No Matter How Narrow, we came up with a lot of songs that we really liked, but didn't necessarily fit in with the overall sound of the record. "Kaspir" is one of those songs. It's definitely one of the heaviest songs we've ever recorded and it's probably a good representation of what our next release will sound like. Check it out! We hope you enjoy it!

To keep you all informed (accurately and unbiased) we are here to let you all know what the real deal is with TDS. Yes we are no longer a band.

Universal said it will dismantle the Island Def Jam group and form three stand-alone labels — Motown Records, Def Jam Records and Island Records. The move will allow the labels to enhance their own marketing and publicity and A&R teams, according to Universal. Def Jam will be led by CEO Steve Bartels, who was previously president and COO of Island Def Jam. Ethiopia Habtemariam will become president of the Motown Records label, which will leave New York and return to its prior home in Los Angeles. Island will continue to be led by...

Spraynard are back together and will be working on a new album.
we were really tempted to announce the end of our hiatus tomorrow so everyone would think it was an April Fool’s joke… but we decided it’s probably more kind to just be honest with everyone. we have started writing new music and hope to release an LP at some point in the next year or so. oh, and we’re playing THE FEST. i think that gets announced tomorrow? seriously, this is not an April Fool’s joke. we’re really doing stuff again. maybe we’ll go on tour soon? who cares? we can do whatever we want now.
