The News on the Chainsmokers

On January 17, 2018, the Chainsmokers released yet another big hit, Sick Boy and You Owe Me. The Chainsmokers have only been around for the past two years. The incredibly talented band consists of Alex Pall age 32 and Drew Taggart age 28. They have been performing top songs one after the other. To keep this kind of fame up will be a stressful process, but they have shown over and over they have what it takes to do so. The Chainsmokers’ music fuses streams of indie, dance beats, pop, hip-hop, and expertly crafted electronic soundscapes into cool rifts of smoking sound

 

Since hitting success with “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down,” the duo has added a new dimension to their work with Taggart, one half of the duo, adding his singing to their crowd-rousing sound beginning with the single “Closer,” in which Halsey also performs. Popularity has skyrocketed greatly for the duo. The Chainsmokers have won two American Music Awards, Grammy Awards, five iHeartRadio Music Awards, and are continually preparing to release some new musical treats since their beginnings.

 

Their most recent song called “Sick Boy”, was a long overdue song, considering they had nothing new for 9 months. The song is a little dark but as Drew stated in the interview with Forbes “he thinks this is the way our society now.” The words to a song are usually something felt in the artist life, but the interpretation is always left up to the fans. The song seems dark and twisted but considering the way our culture is right now and the pressures kids have these days, this song seems to fit right in. The kids these days are all connected to one another through social media to the point we are all on stage. (View: The Chainsmokers New Song Video)

 

 

“Sick boy” has a different feel compared to their other music that’s for sure. Some people like the song and others will not, but it’s all left up to each person’s take on the song. Their name “Chainsmokers” is a mystery because neither of them smokes and they don’t want to explain how they came up with it. Their music is a mix of hip-hop, dance music, pop and electro-pop. They seem to express their lives through music in many different music styles. This duo doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon, they plan to be around for a long time to come.

Alex Pall Puts Himself into The Chainsmokers’ Music

The Chainsmokers have released several hits like “Roses”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, and “Closer” featuring Halsey. Much of their success can be attributed to the heart they put into their songs, a trait that is rather rare among dance music. In a sea of sterile music with no feeling in it besides euphoria-inducing bass drops and beats, Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall, enjoys putting a human element into his music with Andrew Taggart.

 

Alex Pall was a relatively well-known DJ in the New York club scene in his younger years before the Chainsmokers. His at the time hobby began consuming more and more of his time but he couldn’t consider his music a job as he enjoyed it far too much. Eventually, he realized he wanted to make his hobby his full-time commitment and spoke to his manager, the same manager he has now even after he found success. His manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart and the two knew they needed to make music together. They shared music tastes and hit it off as people, so they immediately started working together. They clicked so well, in fact, that Alex Pell quit his job and Drew relocated from Maine to New York City to pursue their dream.

 

Another relatively unique aspect of Alex Pall’s Chainsmokers is that they do not rely entirely on songwriters and vocalists and put their own talent and voices into the music that they produce. When Alex Pall and Drew aren’t writing the entirety of the song, they are there with the songwriters for the entire process to give them their input or guide them to personalize the songs, so they fit who the pair are as people.

When Alex Pall and Taggart started writing for Chainsmokers, they had trouble trying to make lyrics that were relatable to their audience. They settled on writing songs about their own life experiences. As their audience is growing, the Chainsmokers, Alex Pall, and their music are evolving with them.

Steven Tyler grew up spending summers in New Hampshire. He listened to a radio station out of Fort Wayne Indiana to hear his favorite country music.

They were a major influence on rock and roll helping to shape where it is today. Now Steven Tyler after falling in love with Nashville a few years back is going to go country. This will be different from the path of rock and roll that he is known for. I know those who are true Aerosmith fans will remember this groundbreaking hit from back in the day. Walk This Way by Aerosmith and Run DMC. The collaboration of this type was unheard of at that time.

With the pending decision of the US Supreme Court to rule in favor of marriage equality in all 50 states, Hudson is using this video to support the #All50 campaign. This is a place for the LGBT community and their supporters to stay up to date on the information available in the struggle for marriage equality in the United States.

The video concludes with the people that have congregated at the wedding singing and dancing and exudes celebratory feels, as if the decision has already been made. This is Jennifer’s favorite scene in the music video as it shows everyone having a good time together. Sam Tabar likes it as well. Hudson also commented in the interview with MTV that she wants to see more people come together, and if her music can somehow help that happen, then she feels as if she has done good things. The gay community has been a huge supporter of Hudson since her American Idol days. She wanted to show her appreciation of their support as well with this video.

Rolling Stones Zip Code Tour Rolls On

The boys have hit the road one more time, and the band known for it’s grueling tours shows no signs of slowing down. The Rolling Stones “Zip Code” tour is proving to be exactly that for fans. It’s a 15 date North American stadium tour that began with a bang on May 24th at San Diego, California’s Petco Park, and will finish up on July 15th in Quebec.

The tour is featuring rarities from the bands “Sticky Fingers” tour in 1971. They are also re-releasing a deluxe version of the album on June 8th, which is now available for pre-order on their website. To get ready for the tour, the Stones played a club gig at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theater. Only 1,200 fans got to experience the show, but it was filmed for a possible future release.

Guitarist Keith Richards and drummer Charlie Wood both said the band has never been better, as expressed in a FreedomPop review. “I think it’s the best vibe ever within the band,” says Wood. “We’ve never been closer.”

Donald Fagen Mad at Journalist

Rolling Stone Magazine is publishing, unedited, Steely Dan front man Donald Fagen’s tour diary. In one entry, Fagen defends himself against accusations in a negative review about Steely Dan appearing in The Washington Post by a writer named Geoff Edgers.

Edgars says that Steely Dan appearing at the Coachella music festival is a bad thing. For one, he says that Steely Dan being there just shows that the festival organizers are thinking only of money and not of promoting new acts. Fagen counters by saying the article is great publicity for his band.

He goes on to say that the festival promotes a huge variety of music and puts many new acts on the stage. He mentions that the producers made a huge profit last year by doing this and that it had nothing to do with the older acts.

Fagen also says festivals aren’t a great place to hear live music because of the poor acoustics. He thinks that the appeal of the festival experience is more about getting together with a crowd of happy, partying people.

Fans like Sam Tabar have learned that, also, Fagen resents being accused of playing “Dadrock” in the review. He says that music can remain relevant years after it was released and uses Bob Dylan as an example.

Personally, I think its sad that Fagen has to defend himself at all. He’s 76 years old and his band is still going strong.
