discussion What cool female guitarists should I recommend to my 15yr old niece?

5.5k Upvotes

My niece is a pretty good guitar player and singer already, and has her own taste in music that I'm not going to disrupt, but I want to introduce her to some underrated cool guitar players she can check out. I'm not thinking about amazing virtuoso guitar players, or old school artists, but sort of newer hip guitarists so she can see what some women are currently doing in the music scene.
I already recommended: Tash Sultana, Jessica Dobson from Deep Sea Diver, & Brittany Howard from Alabama Shakes. I can't really think of anyone else at the moment.

discussion Saddest Song(s) You've Ever Heard

6.8k Upvotes

I was listening to some pretty rough songs today (by accident - shuffle) that turned my emotions out a little bit. Very tough, depressing stuff. And then I heard a song by a well-known 80's pop band, Mike + The Mechanics, about a son regretting not making peace with his now deceased father, "The Living Years," and realized even sad songs can be hits and even wild pop sensations. Crazy to think a song that personal hit #1 in the US!

Are there any songs for you that affect you with their heaviness?

discussion Are the Beastie Boys respected in the rap community?

4.0k Upvotes

Not looking for a big debate or nothing, just a general pulse from the community. They were obviously very popular and have alot of fans but are they considered greats the same way we look at Tupac or Eminem in the rap world (not saying they are as big as these 2 but respected for what they accomplished).

Edit: just to clarify, I'm asking in part because how often my freinds talk about the best and they never either bring up the Beastie Boys or have never heard of them but will mention rappers from the same era

Not bands who replaced the singer. But bands where different people sing certain songs. Obvious ones for me are

The Beatles - I still enjoy trying to tell who's singing. John and Paul mostly but Ringo and George sang some.

Fleetwood Mac - three different singers. Right?

The Cars - I didn't realize that two guys sang until Ric Ocasec passed away.

The Who - Pete Townsend sung some.

discussion Ticketmaster’s Taylor Swift chaos triggers US Senate antitrust hearing

8.3k Upvotes

A US Senate antitrust panel will go ahead with a hearing on the lack of competition in the country’s ticketing industry after Ticketmaster’s problems last week managing the sale of Taylor Swift tickets.

Ticketmaster’s parent company, Live Nation, has blamed presale problems for Swift’s Eras tour – the pop superstar’s first US tour in five years – on “unprecedented demand” and an effort to keep out bots run by ticket scalpers.

After registered fans struggled with glitches for hours to get tickets in the presale, and tickets quickly began appearing for resale for as much as US$22,700 (£19,100, A$33,500), Ticketmaster cancelled sales to the general public. It later claimed the demand for Swift tickets “could have filled 900 stadiums”.

Swift has said it was “excruciating” for her to watch fans struggling to secure tickets and that she had been assured Ticketmaster could handle the demand.

The chaos attracted the attention of US politicians, many of whom have voiced concerns about how dominant Ticketmaster has become after it merged with the entertainment company Live Nation in 2010.

Tennessee’s attorney general, Jonathan Skrmetti, has said he will launch a consumer protection investigation into the company after his office was bombarded with complaints from Swift fans.

The congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has also criticised the merger. “Daily reminder that Ticketmaster is a monopoly, its merger with Live Nation should never have been approved, and they need to be reined in,” she tweeted. “Break them up.”

On Tuesday the senator Amy Klobuchar, who will chair the panel, and the senator Mike Lee, the top Republican on the committee, announced the Senate hearing would go ahead. They have yet to provide a date or a list of witnesses.

“The high fees, site disruptions and cancellations that customers experienced shows how Ticketmaster’s dominant market position means the company does not face any pressure to continually innovate and improve,” Klobuchar said. “We will hold a hearing on how consolidation in the live entertainment and ticketing industry harms customers and artists alike.”

Ticketmaster denied any anti-competitive practices and said it remained under a consent decree with the Department of Justice after the 2010 merger, adding there was no “evidence of systemic violations of the consent decree”.

“Ticketmaster has a significant share of the primary ticketing services market because of the large gap that exists between the quality of the Ticketmaster system and the next best primary ticketing system,” the company said.

Klobuchar was one of three lawmakers who argued in a letter on Monday that Ticketmaster and Live Nation should be broken up by the Department of Justice if any misconduct was found in an ongoing investigation.

The department has proven in recent years to be much more willing to file antitrust lawsuits against giant companies – including the ongoing December 2020 lawsuit against Google – and to fight mergers.

I don't think I need to say anything else. Live Nation and Ticketmaster are criminals. Everything from their service fees to their mobile tickets are bullshit. Trying to get a refund from them is impossible. The last class action lawsuit against them I got to see 4 free concerts, hardly worth it from the aggravation. I can't wait until the next class action lawsuit I'm in.

In your opinion, which albums should everyone hear at least once?

I'm looking to broaden my musical tastes and was curious about your must-listen albums. It may be any genre; I simply want to know what you believe should be heard. It could be by unappreciated artists or well-known artists, but you must think it's a good album. It would be nice if it was accessible on Spotify, but it doesn't have to be.

So which albums, in your opinion, should everyone listen to at least once, and why?
