Experience The Underground Alternative Music From Bar Code Born

Published

on

Bar Code Born
Bar Code Born
is one of the coolest underground indie bands in America. Without a doubt, their repertoire appears to reflect songs that can easily become cult-classics. Formerly known as “Barbie’s Gun”, the band’s music style has evolved over the past few years. Nowadays, I would dare to say they fit into the alternative Pop/Rock sphere. Beyond this, both their lyrics and unique cover art convey reality which points out a meaningful concept. Perhaps, one of their major achievements is their triumph at the Unisong International Songwriting Competition.  Since then, many doors have opened for them. Not to mention, Brain Orion (band’s main vocalist) has worked on different projects for the likes of OKGO, John Mayer & Alanis, Foo Fighters, among others. Check out their latest music video for the new single “Got A Lot Of Feeling” below.

There’s A Great Message Behind Nick Davies’ Music, “Earth Without Art”

Published

on

Nick Davies
“Earth Without Art” is a song with a great message that invites you to reflect on the importance of music. Naturally, the COVID-19 outbreak has affected artists and Nick Davies provides hope through his lyrics and encourages them to never give up. Listening to new tracks in order to boost your mood during quarantine is essential. So, I can’t imagine what will happen if art was forbidden on this planet during this global pandemic. Perhaps, depression and anxiety levels could be on the rise. In any case, the humanitarian vision of Nick and the positive vibes of his latest pop gem is necessary these days. Sonically relaxing but socially conscious of the issues that concern you, this is a fantastic piece and one you could sing! Stream in full below.

20 Years Of The Blond Ambition Tour

Published

20 Years Of The Blond Ambition Tour
On April 13th, 1990 Madonna was about to start her third concert tour in support of her fourth studio album “Like a Prayer” and her second soundtrack album, “I’m Breathless”. Who could have guessed this would become one of the most influential tours of all times, one after which any other tour of a pop star would be measured against?

Where was Madonna’s career in 1990?

Madonna’s entire career is one huge anomaly. Close to 40 years in her career debut we are still talking about her, she still makes headlines and even more importantly, she still makes great music with “Madame X” (2019) ending up on many “best of” lists for 2019 even if she was snubbed for a Grammy.


This is why trying to choose a peak for Madonna’s career is close to impossible but there is one era we can surely say is close to the top: the Blond Ambition Tour era. During this time, Madonna has shown that she isn’t just a very smart businesswoman, but also one of the top artists of her day – in retrospect, we can even say of all times.

While she started as a teen idol in the mid-1980s, by the early 1990s she transformed herself into a woman that adults could look up to, could talk about without sounding like they’re trying to keep up with the kids of the day, but also without alienating her teen fanbase. So when she went on tour in 1990, it was bound to be a success.

Why is this tour so iconic?

If you had to sketch Madonna so another person could guess who you’re drawing, it’s very likely that you’d use a cone bra, a blonde ponytail, and a hands-free microphone that thanks to this tour, it has become known as a “Madonna mike”. There was no use of the cvn300 model yet, but she made it work!

The tour had five segments: “Metropolis” (which was inspired by the German film of the same name), “Religious” (inspired by her Catholic upbringing), “Dick Tracy” (after the movie she starred in 1990), “Art Deco” (her tribute to the early years of Hollywood fashion), and an encore.


Looking at these segments, it’s not hard to see why the tour was such a critical success. Artists thrive when they present work inspired by their real-life emotions and experiences, by their interests, etc. We all know Madonna has a thing for questioning religious dogmas and she loves old Hollywood glamour so the tour imagery fit her like a glove.

By using elaborate sets and costume changes that told a story, Madonna basically combined the worlds of opera and rock’n’roll and created a spectacle that is still entertaining 30 years after its debut. Her progressive views on feminism, racism or queer rights were tabu back then and they’re still controversial today, which makes the tour age like fine wine.

This was a show that was accessible to many and it would make you leave the stadium not only entertained but also asking yourself questions: why is female sexuality such a tabu when Michael Jackson and Prince aren’t doing anything that different and they don’t get the same criticism?


The setlist also reads as a sort-of greatest hits for the Queen of Pop as she performed “Holiday”, “Like a Virgin”, “Papa Don’t Preach”, “Like a Prayer”, “Express Yourself” and “Vogue” among other classics. And we must give a shout out to the costumes of Jean-Paul Gaultier as they changed how a pop star could look like!

Fortunately, her artistry remains as seen by her next tours such as “The Girlie Show”, “Confessions Tour” and her most recent one, “Madame X Tour”. We just can’t wait to see what she has prepared for us next!

Amira's 'Broken Angel' EP Can Make You Feel Many Emotions
The first listen to this EP is indicative that Amira pours her heart out over all the 5 tracks. It really doesn’t matter if you can relate or not to the lyrics of ‘Broken Angel’. Just the way she conveys her emotions with powerful vocals is what shines the most. Besides the good interaction of guitar, drums, and keyboards, Amira’s Pop-Rock ballads tell different stories. Certainly, she has the ability to sustain long high notes while her deep feelings denote a reflection of different subjects. From love issues to past experiences, she takes you to a journey where hope or inspiration serves as a purpose.

Currently residing in Richmond, VA, she got involved in the music realm as an autodidact. From an early age, she fell in love with the guitar like most musicians. After her stint in a duo with Austin Riley and in the Rock/Blues cover band IMT, Amira has gained a lot of confidence in herself.  So far, the most memorable career moment of this talented singer was her performance of the national anthem at The Diamond baseball stadium. As one can imagine, due to restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic, she has to reschedule her tour. Get more announcements below.
