Get reading now and be informed!
1. “ MUSIC-BOX” – New Incubus stuff?
Incubus, the American rock band from Calabasas, California have released new material and it comes at the perfect time! One of our favorite bands over the years are still going strong – even with the way the entertainment biz is going! Earlier in the year (before all the “stuff” hit the fan), Incubus gave us a new single “Our Love” which lead to the release of an EP called ‘Trust Fall (Side B)’ this past April. This 5-song collection melds hard rock, funk and electronica – reminiscent of their early material and written in their own music space deep in the San Fernando Valley. We have a huge amount of respect for these guys as they still have that “old school” band mentality where the best ideas and songs come from sitting in a room together, plugging in guitars and microphones, setting a work schedule and letting the creative juices flow together as a unit! So the new tunes were written and recorded prior to the pandemic, but what have they been doing the past few months? Same thing as us and many other bands – working together by collaborating over the information superhighway! Check out the new music video and watch out for more ‘Isolation Sessions’ from The Boxtones!
2. “LOCK-BOX” – 13 Daze on Lockdown
Are you looking to hear the latest ‘Dad Jokes’ from Josh the drummer? Waiting to see what guitarist Tristan will say next in French? Did lead singer Gaz get a haircut yet? And has that bass player Max fixed his internet connection yet? All of these questions can and will be answered when you follow our fellow rockers 13 Daze and their LOCKDOWN Sessions!
The Lock, Stock & Barrel rock band have been busy working behind the scenes, getting creative with video editing, and nailing their parts for some of our favorite covers…and a country song! Really boys? Lol
Personally we look forward to what these guys release next on their YouTube channel, and will know because we’ve subscribed to them (and think you should too). Can we expect an isolation music video featuring an original track? Maybe there will be one with an instrument swap? Hmmmm or maybe a collaboration between them and The Boxtones? Guess we’ll have to wait and see, but for now click the link below to stay up to date with our chums in the Dubai music scene!
3. “TOOL-BOX” – Deals on tools
Musicians from Dubai and all around the world have been forced to rethink how to earn a living using their art and craft if live performance isn’t really an option anymore. Now more than ever, getting our music out there to eager listeners is an absolute MUST and it has to sound as good as it can be! If you’re practicing social distancing and self-isolation like we are, getting into a professional recording studio seems like something that won’t be happening any time soon…so with that being said, bands and artists have to up their home studio game and utilize the best tools the world of music production can offer!
