Over the past few months, Beati Paoli has been working on new material. They’ve been planning a split 7″ with hip hop artist Aeon Grey that will also include two digital mini-albums (via download cards). the 7″, titled “Quid Pro Quo”, will feature one new song from each artist, and the download only material will be a combination of new and remixed/reworked tracks.
The release party is scheduled for june 19th (at The Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines, IA), but you don’t have to wait that long to get a taste of the new stuff. This friday, 5/29/09, Beati Paoli will be uploading a new song, called “Massive Charm Offensive”, onto their website (http://www.beatipaoli.net) and myspace. I’ll try and upload it here as well.
and just so this post isn’t completely BORING, here’s a sample of the 7″ artwork:
rateyourmusic.com is something i think greg and possibly tony would be really interested in. it’s both a database of recorded music, an organizational tool, and a social networking site. you see… basically… you set up a profile and then add, from their database, all the albums, eps, singles, bootlegs, etc that you have in your personal collection. you can also look up specific albums to read reviews and see what other people rate them. this is all fun and interesting, but the parts of the site that i find to be the most fun are these:
1.) you can compare your musical tastes with others. you can automatically find people with similar collections as well as compare the ratings you’ve given with the ratings others have given.
2.) you can view various statistics about the music in a collection. for example: breakdown by rating, rating by decade, or ownership by decade, format, or release type. there are also top releases for every year and other fun charts and lists to browse.
i (scott) decided to make a profile today. you can check me out at: http://rateyourmusic.com/~MCKNGBRD. i haven’t had time to add my whole collection yet (i’ve only gotten through the “B’s” so far), and haven’t actually RATED the majority of what i’ve added, but i’ll have it all up eventually. let’s be friends! :*
we have links for them other places as well, but since i just spent a couple hours updating both the noising machine AND beati paoli facebooks, i feel like i should tell everyone to go check ’em out, and if you are a facebook member, PLEASE add us.
Beati Paoli is going to be featured on westsidewill.com today. They will be on the “unsigned artist showcase”. Since we are in no way a major label, i think they can fit in the “unsigned” category just fine. right!?
you should all go listen to it.
