Over the last week Facebook has launched a whole slew of updates to the sites layout and to the way that users interact with their profiles. One of the updates that will greatly benefit the local music scene is the integration of Spotify with Facebook.
Spotify syncs itself with the music stored on a users computer and then allows you to share playlist’s, currently playing songs, and favorite tracks directly to Facebook, Twitter, and other users. For Promoters and Management this turns Spotify into a a custom radio station that is populated with unique music.
For independent artists this creates a new avenue for music promotion and interaction, also because of its Facebook partnership Spotify is poised to have a much louder voice than other music sharing services such as Pandora and MOD.
Here at Auditory Asylum we want to create a site that is more than just a place to discover and keep up with local artists. Auditory Asylum is also looking to be a place were artists and management can find services that are necessary to their work.
To make this a reality Auditory Asylum is going to be adding a new section of Profiles. These profiles will be for producers, photographers, promoters, film directors, managers, and venues. Through this endeavor Auditory Asylum hopes to create a comprehensive music industry network for DFW.
On the surface mixing pure rock-in-roll musical styles and pure pop lyrics would be recipe of disaster, but when coming from Remington there something irresistibly compelling about their music. At first listen Remington style can throw you for a loop because each song is almost the anti-thesis of each other. From rock ballads to, dance anthems, to club rockin four-to-the-floor pop tracks listening to this band is never the same experience twice.
A.Dd+ is one of the many hip/hop duo’s to hit the Dallas music scene in the past year. What sets them apart is their amazing ability to blend a street bangin sound with lyrics that comprise a scope and reach lost to many other artists. Each track off of their debut album “When Pigs Fly” is full of unique tracks that brings creativity to a music style that has very understated representation. A.Dd+ will be one of the groups to change the musical perception of Dallas. A.Dd+ represents a musical trend that is moving back to lyrically fresh, intelligently crafted rap that can stand on it own without the need for dances and other gimmicks.
