Quarantine Interview, Part 1: Talk Show Host @talkshowhost_ca @MusicBlogRT #musicblog #musicblogRT @earshotmedia #talkshowhost #newmusicalert
Chris from Talk Show Host of Toronto has taken a break from throwing a tennis ball against the wall to chat about quarantine and chocolate. He understands the important things in life, mainly chocolate and Weird Al songs. Talk Show Host will be releasing an album on Wiretap Records in 2021, which is pretty awesome.
Where have you been staying in 2020?
My apartment in downtown Toronto with…
Find A Song
that is a love letter to all things true
Maya B - Real Life
In person or on social media peoples need for acceptance became really apparent to me. Especially in a place like Los Angeles (where I was born and raised)- There’s a big flex culture that I don’t really resonate with. I peeped some ppl working so hard trying to present themselves a certain way. I feel sometimes we forget – I’ve even definitely forgotten that everything is not as it seems and it’s a power move to tap out if something isn’t true to you. It’s powerful be imperfect especially in a world of skin filters and autotune. I needed to make REAL LIFE as a reminder of that - not only for the listeners but for myself.
Just learned about a cool band called Pescado Rabioso (Rabid Fish) and where has this been in my life. Why didn’t I learn there was rad rock music in Spanish so I didn’t have to listen to same *insert accordion solo here* Spanish music about their love troubles and other problems.
So far my favorite of their albums is Artaud cause it’s rad guitar with piano and awesome sounds.
As Chance The Rapper would say “and we back.” Stay tuned all week for new interviews, new music and a look back at the past 5 years of Too Good Music!
Box 3 – The androgynous box – Our suspended scale
Part three of our series on the pentatonic box shapes! If you haven’t checked out the first two blogs (they immediately preceded this post), then I highly suggest you give me an extra click and go back and read those, just so you get an idea of what I’m talking about, because I will refer to something in those posts.
HOLY SHIT THAT IS A LOT OF WATER! Does she live under a waterfall?
An other good vibe. An other good time with an other good music. Check this out and have a wonderful moment. Enjoy the music 🎶.
Whats popp’n its ya boy Zaanx aka Babynel5252 writing for Yark Magazine for the first time and I figured I’d write about something that I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. From Mario’s “Just a Friend” to Saweetie’s “Tap In”, artists have sampled and covered hiphop classics.
For those who don’t know Mario’s “Just a Friend”, was a cover and sampled Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend” and Saweetie’s “Tap In” samples the Bay Area legend Too $horts Blow the Whistle. I know what you’re thinking, hip hop was born from samples. Yes this is true but with hip hop getting older along with us the young fans of modern rap probably don’t know who Too $hort is… but they heard “Tap In”. They think Nelly is just some buff dude that did a country song but they heard “Bang Bang” by YNW Melly. They think LL Cool J is just some dude that plays a cop on TV but they heard “Who You Loving?” by Dreamdoll (ok this ones a reach but just “Rock With Me” for a second shout out Ashanti). They never heard of Aaliyah but they heard “Blow my High” by Kendrick Lamar. There are so much more songs that have this type of influence that make reference or sample artists that we have been around to hear the original but the younger generation hasn’t. I mean shit The Whole Chixtape series by Tory Lanez is just that and the same can be said for No Rooftops 2 (I haven’t heard no rooftops 1 so I can’t confirm or deny) by Robb Bank$ and who knows in 20 years when your kid turns on their music that modern artist for their time might use a Playboi Carti baby voice sample from now and the cycle will continue keeping all artists alive forever. Many fans of hip hop found out about the Isley brothers from samples. Soon people are going to be finding out about who knows who from a sample. I bet a lot of y’all reading this didn’t know that a bunch of those songs were sampled or a cover. This is what they mean by making music timeless.

Shifting hazily from unsettling to comforting, it’s a record u want to curl up and live in, if just to escape reality for a moment. (boomkat)

LABOUR feat. Hani Mojtahedy - nine-sum sorcery (2020)
nine-sum sorcery can be understood as an occult incitation to the dark energies, natural, political and otherwise, that are released when oil is extracted from the ground. This ritual is focused through the enigmatic electronic and percussion composition from LABOUR which alternates between foreground and background for the haunting vocal performance of Mojtahedy, who interprets Kurdish and Persian verses.
Undoubtedly this album ruled lockdown summer and its vibes fit perfectly. The sincere creative journey Dave takes us on really is brilliant.
I love music with a concept or an album with a theme.
Oliver Heldens is a guilty EDM pleasure of mine and I think he captures the original so well and just elevates it to a future house level!

Çabalıyorum olmuyor daha çok çabalıyorum olmuyor bari sabredeyim diyorum olmuyor çabalamıyorum olmuyor boşveriyorum olmuyor ben bu hayata olduramamak için gelmişim .Ben ne yapsam da olmayacak,benlik bir şey kalmamış vazgeçişi.
“Yaşar gibi yapmaktan,özlemez gibi yapmaktan, iyimiş gibi yapmaktan,nefes alıp onu içimde tutmaktan, o nefeste boğulmaktan sıkıldım. Ki nefessizlikten değil nefesten boğulmaltır marifetimiz…”
