Buzz Track: Touch

Los Angeles, CA electronic indie group Say Say is gearing up to release their first EP. We took an immediate liking to the first single “Touch” which was just released. They performed at The Roxy KROQ Locals Only showcase and are currently planning upcoming show dates.  This indie pop duo could be compared to Capital Cities offering an infectious mix of synth-heavy dance pop.

Michael Jackson

via Buzzfeed

He didn’t play instruments, so he wrote every song by singing all the parts to tape. It’s mesmerizing.

This astonishing demo of “Beat It” is making its way around Tumblr thanks to the Michael Jackson fan blog Rhythm of the Tide.

“Beat It” Demo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZeYw1bm53Y

It’s beautiful all on its own, but it’s also extremely valuable in how it gives us insight into how Jackson wrote and arranged so many hit songs on his own even though he was not particularly proficient at playing instruments.

Here’s Rob Hoffmann, a sound engineer who worked with Jackson, describing the singer’s process:

“One morning Michael came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. ‘Here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note,’ etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57.
