Music Review: The Avett Brothers deliver fine folk on ‘Magpie and the Dandelion’
“The future is exciting… We’ve released three albums over the last five years, been nominated for 14 Detroit Music Awards, have a video airing on CMT and in January of 2013 I was contacted by Nashville producer, Jeff Huskins. Jeff heard our most recent single “We Are Young And So Is The Night” and as a result offered us a contract to work with him on a 4 song production deal.” Fans will have to wait and see what these new tracks will sound like but if Turner keeps on this path, Detroit music fans and music in general all be going country. I had the chance to interview Alan Turner. We discussed everything from when Turner first discovered music to how he uses social media to help his fans discover music. The entire interview is below.

My mother was my Sunday School Teacher. She taught me how to read music and play the piano.
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.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) Rdio isn’t the streaming music service with the most users or features. But unless you’re a serious music nerd, Rdio is the most usable option. For vast amount of music fans, Rdio has the best design and functionality, making it CNNMoney’s Best In Tech for the streaming music category. If you’ve never used a streaming music subscription service like Rdio or Spotify , understand that it’s not Pandora ( P ). You don’t pick a song or artist and then let the service build a randomly-generated playlist for you. Instead, for $10 a month, you have unfettered access to an online jukebox with tens of millions of songs. What really separates Rdio from the competition is its social backbone. You can follow friends, strangers, musicians, businesses, etc. and get a sense of what they’re listening to. Rdio will also recommend songs and artists for you to check out based on your friends’ interests. That may not seem like a big deal, but when you’re not quite sure what to listen to, this feature is one of the best in helping you figure it out. Another standout Rdio feature is the ability to build an online library full of “your” tracks. With rival services, having your favorite music in front of you means scrolling through hundreds of playlists in the sidebar of the app. It’s less than ideal.
