Artists

Eivind Aarset

Superb Norwegian artist interviewed: MIC Norway: Eivind Aarset: cooking in the undercurrent

Eivind Aarset is like a shy musical Jedi Knight. The force is strong in him, obviously, for his guitar has played a major part in sculpting a lot of the most important music to come out of Norway in the past ten- to fifteen years. He is an experimental jazz maestro, yet a reclusive one. The four records he has released in his own name are something like elusive masterpieces; darkish, timeless things that live their lives without neon signs and advertisements.

The instrumentation and the arrangements are more evolving and varied, the words reflecting upon topics such as inner conflicts, human relations, outer space, stars and planets, journeys to unknown galaxies and more. In addition to eight brand new compositions there´s also room for an absolutely stunning interpretation of Roy Harper´s beautiful love song ”Another Day” and Rush´s dark ”Subdivisions”. Mariam Wallentin from Wildbirds & Peacedrums is among the guests.

  Music Links Roundup - Update - August 14th

Some links of interest:

latest sales figures of British music magazines: Mag ABCs: Movie titles up but music titles slump further - Press Gazette

Music

The Fly - 107,771 (2.4%)

Q - 100,172 (-11.5%)

Mojo - 97,722 (-8.1%)

Uncut - 76,526 (-12.0%)

Classic Rock – 70,301 (5.5%)

Metal Hammer - 46,004 (-5.2%)

Kerrang! - 43,253 (-28.3%)

New Musical Express - 40,948 (-27.2%)


British music magazines in a sales slump, hardly surprising when the content is so poor, lack of agenda, complacency, little evidence of creativity.

Uncut got what they deserved declining sales ! that magazine is so lacking in creativity and needs to radically change with a new direction / and re-launch.

Meanwhile both Kerrang and NME continue to loose sales, both are victims of chasing narrow teenager youth demographics, Kerrang continues to serve up mallcore rock tripe and the NME is struggling to re-invent itself after slowly realising that landfill indie is a culturally dead end cul de sac.

now the NME is nearly at the sales levels of when the weekly Sounds magazine closed in 1991.

interesting analysis: When Conor took over the magazine in June 2002, circulation stood at 70,456. Today's ABC figures put the number of copies sold at 40,948. - No Rock And Roll Fun: Folding magazines: Misery all round

Another very poor issue of Uncut magazine, nothing appealing on the front cover whatsoever - boring Beatles once again are the main feature. Uncut have been going through a barren patch in 2009, it will interesting to see how many sales they have lost when the next audited sales figures are released.

If only the NME would ditch British landill indie, tell Oasis to f-off, and ignore Pete Doherty - then maybe things could begin to improve.

meanwhile: NME.COM has a new look, changes outlined by NME.Com editor David Moynihan: The New Look NME.COM - Out Of Nowhere - NME.COM

IMHO the content is still rather busy, there are improved top and bottom navigation sections, with content clustered into sections.

The Dummy guide to Rinse FM 11 things you need to know about the most important radio station in Britain.

I see the Tories are at again, their answer to everything privatize it: sure Radio 1 is far from ideal, but the daft Tories want to flog it off to a private company as if Britain doesn't have enough crappy commercial local and regional music stations already, they want to create to mega commercial youth music national station when advertising revenues are declining, bonkers: We’ll sell off Radio 1, say Tories - Times Online

Surely if the BBC remit is to provide services to all sections of the community, then the ignorant Tories are telling the youth you don't matter, culture isn't important. We will offload it to a private company to make money out of you, mainstreaming the music even more and providing less choice and diversity. NEVER trust the Tories or commercial radio companies !
