VIDEO: Switchfoot - "Dark Horses"

Multi-platinum selling rock band and worldwide chart toppers, Switchfoot, arguably one of CCM's biggest mainstream successes ever, hit hard with this comeback video/single, "Dark Horses",  in which they explore the themes of having to always be the ones to run against the grain, the 'dark horses' or 'black sheep', so to speak. Lovely stuff, with 100%  mainstream credibility as usual.

VIDEO: Kenny K'ore - 'Psalm 23 (Odeishi)'

Something hilarious and creative from ex-INFINITY member Kenny K'ore, a re-rendition of Psalm 23 in south-south 'wafi' dialect, aptly named 'Psalm 23 (Odeishi)' . Well shot, short, and well packaged (and ostensibly shot in the UK), this is a good candidate for the 'replay' button.
 Thumbs up Kenny! Kourire!

MUSIC: Obiwon Presents His New Singles

R & B crooner turned urban gospel artiste Obiora Obiwon has witnessed enough transitions to keep the Nigerian urban music scene guessing and his followers constantly on their feet.

ARTICLE: Recording Lead Vocals In The Home Studio - Frequently Asked Questions

By Paul White & Mike Senior of Sound On Sound Magazine, UK (

This one's strictly for the home studio geeks/tweakheads amongst you all. As the digital age really sinks into any and every facet of life, more and more music enthusiasts are setting up their studios at home and turning themselves into a one man army of musician, producer, and recording, mix and mastering engineer. Yet, without adequate knowlegde of some basic vocal recording techniques, this may become your most hellish nightmare yet!

A great lead vocal sound can make all the difference between an average demo and a potential single. Many tracks have been transformed into hits simply by an inspired vocal. It is in recognition of the importance of the lead vocal that top producers often spend such a large amount of time and money working on this one element of a finished track. Below are common questions relating to this one vital aspect of music production.

Q I'm currently using a dynamic mic for recording vocals, but I've heard that capacitor (condenser) mics are better. What difference would I notice if I bought one?
For a start, capacitor (or condenser) mics are generally more sensitive than dynamic mics, which means you'll need less preamp gain to get the same signal level. However, when close miking lead vocals there is seldom a problem in getting sufficient signal level. The main difference you're likely to notice moving from a dynamic to a capacitor mic is that the capacitor mic reproduces high frequencies more faithfully, producing a more open sound than a dynamic model with much more clarity and definition.
