After all, they mostly fall into the same trap as most corporations, trying to maintain the status quo rather than experiencing the change needed to keep growing. Associations, like many companies, generally dont want to experience the pain that evolution can bring, even if its in its own best self-interest. Thats why the re-branding of NARM (the National Association of Recording Merchandisers) to become the Music Business Association is so impressive. The board recognized that we live in a totally different world than when the association began in 1958, and it needed more than just a coat of paint to be relevant to its members in our current Music 4.0 world. The new Music Business Association will divide its attention around six sectors that now make up the new music business: digital products, information technology, physical products, knowledge, management, touring and legal/business affairs. This division recognizes that the music business has evolved to become far more than just selling music products in brick and mortar stores as when it began. Addressing these different sectors also acknowledges that in order to grow, the organization has to represent more areas of the music business than just retail, which really was at the core of NARM in its previous iteration. For now Music Biz talks a good game, but well have to see how they actually execute the new plan. One of the problems with most industry trade groups is that they devolve into nothing more than a yearly convention thats basically controlled by its most heavyweight industry members, with maybe a magazine or newsletter thrown in. There may be a lobbying arm attached, but again, the more powerful members seem to benefit much more than the smaller members as a general rule. As weve seen for some time now, trade shows mean less and less in terms of new product introductions, since we can learn all we need online about a product or service way in advance of its official introduction. Hence the convention becomes more of a face to face networking event, although even the value of that is now devalued thanks to the various digital communication techniques at our fingertips these days.
By Associated Press, Magpie and the Dandelion, The Avett Brothers (American) The evolving definition of folk music currently carries a little bit of rock, a little bit of reverb and a few other nontraditional flavors thrown in the stew. Its all being well received and The Avett Brothers new album Magpie and the Dandelion should be no exception. Looking for things to do? Select one or more criteria to search Kid-friendly Get ideas Songs like Open Ended Life and Skin and Bones present a folk version of rocks wall-of-sound approach. Instead of a nuanced give and take between banjo and guitar and drums, we get them all at once, side by side, vying for attention. With proper mixing it works on these hardened-heart love songs. Things work up to a glorious crescendo on several tracks, going from simmer to boil on Another is Waiting. Though its worth noting that the sizzle on Magpie is mostly thanks to strong instrumentals. The group lacks a strong lead vocalist. Both Scott and Seth Avett can sing, but not convincingly enough to mesmerize the listener because of it. All in all, this is pleasant listening and the songs stick in the head. The North Carolina trio is a tight band eight albums into their career, and the folk renaissance has ushered in a new and deserving appreciation for their lilting nu-folk. ___ Follow Ron Harris: http://www.twitter.com/Journorati Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
