Few of pops current heavyweights feel as accidental as Jack Antonoff. He did his time on the indie scene for decade, first fronting Drive-Thru Records band Steel Train and later joining fun., Which itself began as an indie supergroup. Fun. Break big with the surprise hit We Are Young in 2012, but that wasnt pop moment Antonoff was looking for. Not one to stay idle for long, Antonoff started 80s-nostalgic side project Bleachers, which soon became his main project When fun. Announce hiatus. He co-produce every track on Bleachers sharp 2014 debut album, Strange Desire, and started producing for other artists around the same time after lending his pen here and there. Namely, he places a few key tracks on Taylor Swifts 2014 pop turn, 1989, including Out of Woods, I Wish You Would, and that banger of bonus track New Romantics. After accumulating some of the best credits a pop producer could get, he produced odd track for a hodgepodge of musicians, from Sia to Fifth Harmony. But he didnt become capital-P Producer until Lorde took him on for the 2017 Melodrama, released three years after the two met at the Grammy after-party. A fellow alternative-pop artist, she formed a tight bond with Antonoff as writer and producer. Fans think they were romantically involved despite Antonoff being in a longtime relationship with Lena Dunham at the time and they produced definitive work in both of their catalogues. Three years later, Melodrama highlights Antonoffs best skills as writer and producer, all of which circle back to his early days in music: making larger-than-life songs, bringing rock ear to pop music, and understanding how much he actually needed to do to help artists say what they want and shine while doing it. Since then, hes rack up more credits, becoming writer-Producer first and performer second. 2019 seems like the Year of Jack Antonoff, between turns at the helm of albums by Lana Del Rey, Kevin Abstract, and Taylor Swift. But as these past few weeks have shown us, that was just the start. He gives Chicks ' long-awaited return, Gaslighter, its infectious pop sound and now provides ambient, brooding accompaniment for Del Reys ' speak-word album Violet Bent Backwards Over Grass. And between two, Swift released six tracks he produced on her surprise album Folklore, calling him musical family when announcing the project on Instagram. Those projects make it perfect time to review and define Jack Antonoff Sound, style that made an indelible Mark in the last few years of pop and seems like it will only continue to do so.

Poppy, percussive acoustic guitars

Albinis Pod mixes are vast, darkened rooms in which a handful of instruments work against each other. Foremost, Walfords ' gargantuan-sounding kick and snare secret, Deal Say, Was that Theres so much empty space FOR drums to ring out. Poor Dave had all these guitars and bass playing all the way through. The rest of the cast IS Deals distort acoustic guitar, Wiggs sloping basslines that could at times pass FOR guitar figures, occasional violin, and Donellys leads, which she often end on note or chord That, to Wiggs, sounded as IF she was asking a question. Some ideas come from Joe Harvards demo remixes, such as putting Deals vocals in Lime House through Scholz Rockman FOR compress, chorus fuzzbox effect, then running It through noise gate To Be trigger during certain sections, as Harvard write. First Breeders had been two-part harmony act, and Deal had a strong co-vocalist in Donelly, but Pod wasnt harmonies album. Albini HAT's intricate vocals and Think album work better with Deals SINGLE-or double-tracked voice. Comparing demo Only in 3s to its Pod version found Donelly diminished in the song she co-write. Many Pod tracks are more languid than their demo versions. Theyre cleaner, more raw-sounding, and usually go at slower tempos. It is as if breeders are working towards proper take that never appear, so songs remain these great unincorporated territories.


Quartet, 1955

In 1963, he thought of reuniting Quartet in the studio: after all, theyd never made a proper album. George Avakian, chose to produce, was wary of doing homage to past glories. So he was relieved to learn Goodman had already decided to record fresh material they hadnt played to death in the old days. The Initial session found Quartet working through Love Sends Little Gift of Roses, Kurt Weills September Song and Gerry Mulligans Bernies Tune. It was a loss session: everyone was nervous, uncomfortable with songs, took ages between take. As Avakian told George Firestone: Once or twice there was a bit of roughness between Benny and Hampton when Benny wouldnt accept Hampton's suggestions about background figure. Goodman, assuming he was boss as in the old days, found that instead he was sitting in a room with three other thick-egoed middle-age men, each of whom had had run band for years.

Big 80s synths

Today's lesson from Rock Bible, also know as Keith Richardss 2010 memoir, Life come from Chapter 12, Page 459, Paragraph 2: Some context: in the early 80s, Rolling Stones negotiated a new contract with CBS Records in the wake OF 1981 multiplatinum album Tattoo You and accompanying stadium tour that revitalized Stones career. The band WAS riding high on its last flash of major relevance, when the public still cared about New Stones songs, and members subsequently signed with CBS for 20-odd million dollars, Keef writes. What Richards didnt know at time, however, WAS that Mick Jagger had leverage Stones contract to secure a multi-record solo deal for himself. Hence the charge OF Piggybacking: Jagger tries to harness bands ' momentum for his own benefit, foisting solo joints like 1985s Shes Boss and 1987s Primitive Cool on Stones audience while sidelining his bandmates. In the process, he effectively cornered the Stones market while Band WAS stuck in funk caused by infighting and disastrous 1986 album Dirty WORK. Jaggers ' piggyback attempt ultimately fail solo LPs bomb, and he reconvene With Stones for 1989 comeback LP Steel Wheels. But Richards nonetheless pinpoints in Life common symptom of lead singer disease, ailment thats hobble countless bands by turning frontmen and frontwomen into me-first separatists. In late-stage LSD, singer splinters off from the group, and in some cases tries to replace the group, turning the once mutually beneficial situation into a fractious Piggybacking free-for-All. 1 Richards use Piggybacking in reference to Jaggers contract shenanigans. But applying term more broadly, any lead singer WHO capitalizes on the stature of band to build a solo career is also Piggybacking. For instance, while Rod Stewart already had his own record contract before he joined face in 1969, performing With that Band unquestionably helped him establish the commercial persona that he Take with him when face broke up six years later. 2 this kind of soft Piggybacking became common practice for lead singers in their 80s. Around the time that Jagger does his end-around on Stones, Lionel Richie piggyback on Commodores, Stevie Nicks piggyback on Fleetwood Mac, Phil Collins piggyback on Genesis, David Lee Roth piggyback on Van Halen, Boy George piggyback on Culture Club, and Sting piggyback on Police. Meanwhile, superstars previously align with famous backing bands like Prince and Revolution, Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band, and Tom Petty and Heartbreakers begin to remake themselves as solo acts. 3 in the 90s and early 00s, Piggybacking WORK for Lauryn Hill and Rob Thomas, WHO scored some OF their biggest hits after Fugees and Matchbox Twenty, making them Stars. More recently, Fergie and Gwen Stefani piggyback on Black eye Peas and No Doubt to forge blockbuster solo careers.
