Born in London, L.A. based artist AMBER MELODY hits us with her debut single “Smile Hoe” from her new EP “Sicc Little Girls.”  Check the visual below as unflinchingly she hits us with lyrics that she explains are about “knowing when you’re no good for someone.  The spider used in the video is said to resemble that fear in the relationship by covering words and concealing the truth that should be said by crawling over my lips.”  Your comments ALWAYS welcome & MANDATORY…Enjoy!!!

It’s #CoverWednesday!

Every week I like to bring you some amazing covers of or by your favourite Slacker artists! There are SO MANY great covers this week, so let’s get started.

First, Kelly Clarkson (who always finds a way to work cool covers into her live shows) took on Tori Kelly’s “Nobody Love” in Hershey, PA this week.

Taylor Swift flew her bestie (or one of them, anyway) all the way out from New Zealand so that they could sing “Royals” together – find out more about that here.

And finally, nu metal act Korn remixed Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” – and it’s surprisingly relaxing to listen to.

Have you heard any good covers lately? Tweet them to me by following @ParkeronSlacker!

Foo Fighters Protest: Photos or ‘FOO-TOONS’??

First of all I never thought I’d see the day when the Foo Fighters had to deal with bad press, yet here we are.

Quebec newspaper, Le Soleil decided not to send a photographer to cover the recent Foo Fighters show at The Bell Centre because the Foo photog policy is crap…or as they put it, “exploitative.” Taylor Swift was recently accused of the same thing.

Basically (if I’m understanding it right and bear with me because I’m really bad at contract-ese) the band will give you credit for the photos once. Only once that is IF they approve them. Then the band owns them and if you see one of your photos used later down the line you’ll have to convince your friends you actually took that shot and they’ll just look at you like, “riiiiiiiiight.”

So Le Soleil  said F that noise and sent a cartoonist instead! Avoiding the photo terms/conditions all together.

GENIUS.  I actually love the Foo Toons… not at the expense of photographer’s rights. I’m just saying I love the drawings…EDIT: is that better Matt/Adam?? Is it more clear that just because I think the cartoon idea was super clever and fun to see doesn’t mean I condone The Foo Photo Policy?? 

Now some would say if you don’t like the terms don’t do the show (EDIT: purely playing devil’s advocate Matt/Adam) and I get it but these days everyone is a “pro photog” thanks to Instagram. That’s a hard pill to swallow for the true professionals who actually know what the heck they are doing with a camera….I wonder if that plays into these lame terms or perhaps the Foo Fighters and other artists are really just hypocritical BASTARD PEOPLE in disguise!

 

To be continued…
