first_img Email How Young Musicians Are Using Instagram As A Music Platform Twitter How Musicians Use Instagram As A Music Platform how-young-musicians-are-using-instagram-music-platform Indie music distributor AWAL, or as they call themselves, a “unique alternative to the traditional music label,” recently wrote blogged about this new phenomena of the new generation of musicians releasing music on Instagram. They point to 23-year-old Whack who released her entire debut album Whack World on her Instagram earlier this year. She made a video for each song, all of which were just one-minute-long, and uploaded all of them to the social platform the day the album dropped.She also released the album on music streaming services, including Spotify and SoundCloud, and while views and listens of her music on her social don’t provide a direct revenue stream as they would on Spotify and Apple Music, social media (and SoundCloud) allows artists like her to take distribution into their own hands. Her approach makes a lot of sense when you take into consideration the fact that Spotify’s algorithms tend to favor male artists and its popular hip-hop centric playlists primarily feature male rappers.It is vital for younger and emerging artists to find exposure in creative ways to reach new fans. As AWAL points out; “The opportunity cost of a ‘free’ project, sans ad revenue, on Instagram is somewhat marginal, because if a would-be fan enjoys the sample they spent 15 to 60 seconds with enough, they’ll likely generate the bulk of their repeat spins somewhere else.” News A new generation of artists is taking to social media to show the world their art and perhaps changing the confines of the platform as a picture-focused serviceAna YglesiasGRAMMYs Nov 8, 2018 – 6:29 pm The way music fans consume music has radically changed over the past decade or so, and as younger artists enter the music world, they continue to shift the playing field, finding new and innovative ways to spread their sound and reach new fans. Recently we’ve seen a new generation of musicians, like young hip-hop artists Jaden Smith and Tierra Whack, turn to Instagram as a new way to expose more people to their music. Facebook Smith also used his Instagram to release music this year, a remix version of 2017’s Syre. Unlike Whack’s Whack World, his Syre: The Electric Album, is not available on Spotify, but can be streamed on SoundCloud, although only with a premium listener account. Visiting either artists’ Instagram page and seeing the video thumbnails form the album cover is intriguing enough to click to listen—in this day and age, with more content from more sources and quicker scrolling from consumers, it feels important to find new ways to catch the attention of peoples’ eyes and ears.As AWAL quotes MusicAlly; “The existing subscription streaming giants are primarily platforms for distribution, after all, not interaction – and from an artist’s perspective, distribution by third-party corporations is not neatly aligned with the control afforded by social media.”You can catch both Smith and Whack performing at Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles this weekend, which will be livestreamed.How Music Streaming Algorithms Hinder Female ArtistsRead morelast_img

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 11 July 2019 street art of former special council Robert Mueller is seen outside a construction site on 11 July 2019, in Washington, DC. Photo: AFPSpecial Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report capped an investigation that began in July 2016 after the FBI took alarm at Russian meddling in the presidential election battle.It expanded to include obstruction of justice allegations against president Donald Trump after Trump fired FBI director James Comey, who had overseen the investigation. Mueller was then named to lead the effort in May 2017.Mueller’s investigation charged in total 34 people. Six were deeply involved in Trump’s presidential campaign, including his personal lawyer Michael Cohen, campaign chairman Paul Manafort and national security advisor Michael Flynn.But only Russians were charged for election meddling, the focus of the investigation; Americans were charged mostly with lying to investigators or wrongdoing unrelated to the election.The first volume of his report detailed the investigation into Russian meddling and explained why Russians were charged with criminal conspiracy but not Americans.The second volume examined the obstruction allegations.Russian election meddling The report says that as early as 2014, arms of the Kremlin and Russian intelligence, at the instigation of president Vladimir Putin, began actively interfering in US politics. One operation, by the Russian Internet Research Agency, involved manipulating social media to influence American voter views, aiming to damage Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton and boost Republican Trump.The second operation involved hacking by the GRU, Moscow’s military intelligence agency, into election systems and campaign computer networks. The hackers obtained large volumes of documents and communications from Clinton’s campaign that were leaked online, primarily through WikiLeaks, during the race to harm her campaign.The report lays out detailed evidence backing the decision to charge 12 GRU agents and 13 from the Internet Research Agency with conspiracy against the United States.Collusion/coordination with RussiansThe report details scores of willing contacts between the Trump campaign and Russians, including efforts to obtain dirt on Clinton, negotiations for a massive Trump Tower real estate deal in Moscow, liaising with WikiLeaks on the materials stolen by the GRU, secret calls with the Russian ambassador to Washington, sharing campaign data with a Kremlin-linked businessman, and talks on arranging a Trump-Putin meeting.The contacts added up to an extensive record of attempted collusion and coordination. The report said the campaign “expected” to benefit from Moscow’s meddling.But Mueller explained that “collusion” and “coordination” are not specific criminal offenses. Instead, the focus was on whether there was an active criminal conspiracy with the Russians, and no such deliberate conspiracy was found.”Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” the report concluded.Obstruction of justice Mueller laid out at least 10 instances in which Trump allegedly obstructed justice, including pressuring Comey to close an investigation of Flynn, Comey’s firing, efforts to curb and remove Mueller, and efforts to influence the testimony of campaign and White House associates, including what appeared to be offers of pardons.The evidence presented by the report is strong, legal experts say.But Mueller did not recommend charges, saying he was blocked by Justice Department policy holding that the president cannot be charged with a felony while in office, and that it was then Congress’ responsibility to determine if a president broke the law.Yet in an oblique, backhanded phrase that left the general public confused, Mueller said he absolutely was not exonerating Trump.”If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment.”last_img

first_imgEveryone wants to go viral on the internet. One shredded, bearded bro cooked up an extreme stunt to get some clicks and the video is paying off, but not because of him.The video shows the jacked dude attempting some weird type of handstand with a bunch of barbells stacked on top of each other. Yeah, really cool man. Who cares?While the shredded hipster is busy doing whatever he’s doing, your eyes can’t help but be drawn to the old man in the background effortlessly sinking free throw after free throw. He doesn’t miss once during the video.The hipster stuntman was beaming with self-satisfaction after doing his stupid trick, not realizing he was destined to be the supporting actor in this viral video. So perfect.The grandpa draining shots in the background is really all I could focus on— Jasmine (@JasmineLWatkins) March 26, 2017 Sadly, one social media user pointed out that the man shooting the free throws in the background is Dr. Tom Amberry, a Long Beach podiatrist who died on March 18 at the age of 94. Amberry wasn’t just a physician, he also set the Guinness World Record by sinking 2,750 consecutive free throws in 1993.Amberry was actually offered a contract by the Minneapolis Lakers in 1951, but declined it to pursue his career in medicine. So, he’s basically the real life Moonlight Graham.The video is of one of his last free throw sessions before his death. He was still money until the end. RIP, doc.last_img
