Ainsley Costello

Now 18, Ainsley Costello is ready to leave another mark with her new single Two Ships.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA, June 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 23rd single from (just turned 18) Ainsley Costello is presented with emotive power, further clarifying his own style of LA Pop-Rock straight from the heart of Country Music, Nashville, TN. Carefully curated and delivered with her angelic vocals both powerful and utterly heartbreaking.

Carefully curated, presented with emotive power and endowed with its angelic sonic palette; Ainsley Costello’s latest single sees her continue to champion her own LA Pop Rock style and bring it to the heart of Nashville.

Set to release her 23rd single (she just turned 18 a few weeks ago), Ainsley Costello has her eyes set on creating a legacy that stands the test of time. His latest release, “Two Ships,” continues that trend, and it’s easy to see why. His lyrically rich, deeply emotive and highly relatable offering adds another unforgettable and heartwarming piece of music to his ever-growing catalog of music.

Once again moving away from his original country roots towards a more edgy LA Pop Rock infused sound, Ainsley stands out from the crowd in Nashville. While this offering is definitely a ballad, don’t give up on this song too soon because it has a surprise ending (think Billie Elish’s “Happier than Ever”) – you won’t regret sticking around for it.

Unlike many young artists, Costello again shows his ability to write and relate to subjects outside of his own life story. Although the heartbreaking theme of “Two Ships” is a universal breakup song, this one is sung by a young girl who has never been in love or has never been heartbroken, the delivery of the track makes a wealth of justice to talk about what it’s like to lose someone romantically or for whatever reason. “Two Ships” is an intimate and authentic story. The song has already been credited by Tik Tokers,” Jack and Rose, from the iconic ‘Titanic’ film, said. The song is authentic in a way far beyond Ainsley’s years as an artist.

“I love this song because it feels cinematic in a way that I haven’t really explored in any of my other music. I’m excited for everyone to hear what we’ve achieved with this song and I’m really excited to switch to live (yes, we’re going to dance to a ballad!)” ~ Ainsley Costello

“Two Ships” is available to stream and purchase on all major platforms on June 10, 2022.

1968 Press bagged Shake the City: Experiments in Space and Time, Music and Crisis by Los Angeles-based cultural writer Alexander Billet.

Co-founder Jaice Sara Titus has acquired international rights directly from the author, for publication in paperback and e-book in winter 2022.

The editor said: “Part utopian manifesto, part theoretical exegesis, part love letter to human creativity, Shake the city is a plea for the revolt to be as poetic and musical as we deserve.

Its synopsis states: “The crises of neoliberalism and its turn to authoritarianism have produced countless opportunities to interrogate the relationship between music and politics, such as the use of music in hostile architecture, grime rebellion and the relationship between hip-hop and black. Lives matter. Synthesizing radical urbanism, Marxist musicology, anti-racist and anti-colonial thought, Shake the city argues that a formal, holistic materialistic understanding of music reveals a deeper meaning to social struggles over time and space. More than just another front in the battle of ideas, music’s relationship to social struggle reflects a battle over who determines history.

Billet is a writer of prose and poetry, fiction and non-fiction. His writings have appeared in Jacobin, Los Angeles Review of Books, Salvage, In These Times, Radical Art Review, Historical Materialism, Marx & Philosophy Review of Books, Chicago Review, Against the Current, and other outlets. He is a member of the Locust Arts & Letters Collective and sits on the editorial board of its publications. Locust Review and Imago.

He said: “As a Marxist, I have long been concerned with questions concerning the social function of music and the arts. What exactly is music for? Most conventional responses really miss the mark, which is only made worse by the overwhelming and constant ubiquity of the music, adding to the suffocating environment of the late capitalist city. This book is an attempt to cut through that static. The folks at 1968 Press have, even in a short time, shown that they appreciate theoretical rigor around tough questions while not relying on rote truisms and paint-by-numbers. It was an absolute no-brainer to go with them.

Titus added, “1968 Press is delighted to bring Alexander Billet’s unique brand of cultural analysis to a wide audience. As multiple economic, war and climate crises arise and collide, there has never been a more pivotal time to explore the ways in which protest and popular music intersect. Billet is perfectly placed to explore the history of this relationship as a new generation of social movements builds its own soundtrack.

Tribute to Baligh Hamdi, ancestor of popular Egyptian music

By Jared Proudfoot May 25, 2022

Baligh Hamdi was one of modern Egypt’s most prolific and successful composers, helping to usher in a new cosmopolitan era in Cairo and beyond in the 1960s and 1970s. liner notes to his recently reissued 1980 album Indo-Arabic variations on AltercatHamdi is quoted as living by a rule in his music: “Draw on local tradition to reach the world.



In the mid-1950s, Hamdi began composing for popular Egyptian singers, drawing inspiration from traditional folk melodies and rhythms and adding luscious string arrangements for a decidedly classical sound. “Baligh’s brilliance is associated with our cultural calendar,” says Tamer Hamdi, Baligh’s nephew, speaking on the phone from Cairo, Egypt. “His sounds are what people listen to here. These are the most famous songs ever created in Egypt.

These sounds would very knowingly proliferate western culture in the form of samples used by Jay Z, who controversially borrowed Abdel Halim Hafez’s bookKhosara Khosarain “Big Pimpin”; Earl Sweatshirt, who used the “1001 nightsin “IS”; Madonna and Aaliyah, who sampled Warda (who Baligh was married to for ten years); and many more.

The relevance of these intercultural transmissions from East to West in the 2000s is that it was also Hamdi who pioneered similar transmissions, but in the opposite direction, from West to East, several decades earlier. In the 60s and 70s he began experimenting with western instrumentation in his music, writing for saxophone, guitar, drums, moog synthesizer and many more heard throughout the essential compilation. 1970s Egypt instrumental modal popproduced by Sublime Frequencies in 2021. The sounds produced are jazz, pop and psychedelic rock with oriental accents; equally appealing to fans of the Sun Ra Arkestra as they are for fans of Dick Dale and the Del Tones– a far cry from Hamdi’s earlier orchestral output.

“If we talk about the concept of merging two civilizations, Baligh was before the trend,” says Tamer Hamdi. “He did it before Peter Gabriel, before Led Zeppelin, before Buddha Bar. He was a visionary. »

In the late 1970s, and in the spirit of constant progression and innovation that had defined his career up to that point, Hamdi turned his attention eastward to India, and in particular, to the sounds majestic by Magid Khan: a well-known sitar player at the time, from a rich line of musicians. On the occasion of Khan’s visit to Cairo in 1979, Hamdi rearranged some of his own compositions to feature the sitar player as a prominent soloist in a set of works he named Indo-Arabic variations.

Unlike the West-meets-East collaborations, which merge very different tonal and harmonic understandings of the music, this East-meets-East collaboration features more subtle disparities. With Indian and Egyptian music both using similar modal scales (Indian raga and arabic maqam), monophonic textures and an equal emphasis on quarter tones, a main point of difference lies in the timbre of the instrumentation of the respective countries. On Indo-Arabic Variations, the sitar and boardpillars of Indian music coexist comfortably with the qanun, arghuland ney of Egypt and the Middle East.



The resulting result is a beautifully melodic and strongly percussive orchestral album with half a dozen hand-picked soloists improvising on centuries-old modal systems from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. It’s a unique conversation between old styles flirting with an essence of regional familiarity. The interaction between the soloists adds an element of surprise to each track on the album, as disparate melodies appear, disappear and overlap, causing a murky tonal center. Hamdi sets parameters in real time for instrumentalists to play solo. They roam far, wide and free, but at the constant whim of the maestro’s watchful staff. A few years later, in New York, the experimental jazz musician Butch Morris will invent this technique “conduction.”

For Sergi Roig, label manager at Altercat and collector of Arabic music, the Indo-Arabic variations album cover is what first caught his eye during a recent trip to Egypt. From the first listen, Hamdi’s international influences were immediately recognizable. “When you hear 200 songs and your ear ain’t so accustomed [to Arabic music], they can start to sound the same,” he says of his own listening habits. “But when you hear [those sounds] mixed with jazz, you immediately think “Wow, what is that?” I can’t remember any other easy to digest music that fuses Arabic, Indian and Jazz.

Although registered in Cairo, Indo-Arabic variations was released exclusively in France, where a large diaspora of the North African Arab community resided. Hamdi had spent a lot of time in France, and ended up living there in exile for several years in the 1980s following a controversy in Egypt. Asked about his broader contribution to the cultural canon, Tamer Hamdi offered the following: “Art should be put into the perspective of time. Time and history are the enemies of the artist. Van Gogh saved time, Beethoven saved time, and Baghir Hamdi saved time. Fifty to sixty years later, you still hear his music on the radio all over Egypt. It’s time to win.

Do you have a passion for music? Or maybe you just want to find a good location where you don’t have to mute the soundtrack? Either way, you’ve come to the right place. When it comes to online entertainment, nothing can beat the combination of slots and music.

Image credit: Unsplash

With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the top five music-themed slots. They are all available online, and what’s even better is that they are play it safe at Casumo. Read on to find out which titles made the chart, then start spinning the reels on your number one pick.

Best Music Themed Slots

Music-themed slots work because they bring together great songs with slot machine symbols that we love and care about. No matter your musical tastes; you will find something that suits you. While music plays a role in our ratings, we also took into account how fun these games were to play, including looking at the RTP (Return to Player) rate and bonus features.

Guns N’ Roses

An iconic rock band is a no-brainer when it comes to music slot themes. NetEnt has done a great job of turning the style and spirit of Guns N’ Roses into a slot game. There’s a setlist of five of the band’s biggest hits, and you can choose which one to listen to while you spin the reels.

The RTP is 96.98%. The theme is well applied as you will see party members available as high value symbols. Slot machine features include Expanding Wilds, Encore Free Spins, Legend Spins and Crowd Pleaser Bonus.

Kiss

American rock band Kiss has an instantly recognizable look, which translates well to a slot machine theme. The RTP of the slot is 95.94% which is below and that is the reason why this game misses out on the top spot. However, it still delivers exactly what Kiss fans will want to see and hear.

The soundtrack includes great hits, such as Rock and Roll All Nite and Detroit Rock City. You can also see live footage from previous concerts, which adds to the mood. Game symbols include band members, an electric guitar, and the Kiss logo, which serves as a scatter symbol to trigger free spins.

The Phantom of the Opera

If you’re looking for a different style, then a game inspired by one of best musicals might suit you. Microgaming’s Phantom of the Opera slot is inspired by the film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit show. It includes music from the soundtrack, which will get you in the mood alongside the moody graphics and animations.

Symbols and bonus rounds embrace the theme. There is a chandelier bonus, Music of the Night free spins and Christine, Raoul and the ghost appear as symbols. The game has 243 ways to win and an RTP of 96.40%.

Motorhead

Rock bands dominate this list of music-themed slots. Maybe their fans are more likely to be casino gamers, or the images and songs are more in line with the format of the game. At number four is Motörhead, with a song that’s perfect for the casino. You will hear Ace of Spades playing in the background. However, when you activate rock mode, you will hear other tracks, such as Overkill and Iron Fist.

The slot has an RTP of 96.98%. It’s another NetEnt classic with features and symbols that fit well with the UK group. Look for the Mystery Reel with symbols that can transform and the Bomber feature that can lead to big wins.

Although the benefits of singing are undeniable, you might want a totally different style of music away from rock and stage shows. In that case, we recommend checking out number five on our list, DJ Wild. Imagine a stadium full of people ready to dance the night away as you line up the tracks.

In DJ Wild, you set the tone. It’s a fun twist on the theme music without relying on a specific band. ELK Studios has delivered a slot with an RTP of 96.30% and features that include expanding Wilds, a respin bonus game and an enticing jackpot.

A popular festival will return to Tonbridge Castle this summer. The creators of the hugely popular Tonbridge Castlemas Christmas event will bring Tonbridge Music Weekend back to town.

The Counterfeit Beatles will kick things off on Saturday night, before Lost in Music takes the stage. The sensational live band will play classic hits from the 70s while taking you on a journey into the heart of disco.

Special guest Marisha Wallace will be the first to take the stage on the final night. Marisha starred in West End hits Dreamgirls and Waitress before being nominated for a WhatsOnStage Best Supporting Actress award for her role as Becky.



The event will take place in the grounds of Tonbridge Castle

Speaking about her excitement to perform at the event, Marisha said: “I am thrilled to announce that I will be performing in this year’s A Night at the Musicals. If you want to hear me belt and Collabro sing for their lives, so book your tickets now…you’re going to have an amazing time! I can’t wait to see you there.”

The entertaining weekend will be closed by former Britain’s Got Talent winner Collabro. The boys then had their first number one album which became the best selling record of the year.



Collabro won Britain’s Got Talent in 2014

Since then, it’s fair to say that they’ve done pretty well. They’ve amassed over a million record sales worldwide across four major album releases – and now they’ll be performing on the scenic castle grounds.

Each of the three evenings will begin around 7 p.m. A full weekend ticket costs £82 and will save you a total of £15 if you plan to go all three nights. You can click here to buy tickets.
