OMAR BORAIE; BORAIE DEVELOPMENT LLC VICE PRESIDENT’S PHILANTHROPY MISSION

To believe in your dream is one thing but to make it come to fruition is another. Omar Boraie is one of the people who believed in his dream and made it come true.

Omar Boraie started the Boraie Development LLC to make sure that his dream of turning New Brunswick town into a city comes true. In 1972, when the Chief Executive Officer of the Real Estate Company walked in the town, everything seemed bleak, but he has managed to turn all this around through developing various real estate projects.

According to a feature on NJBiz, everyone thought that the Egyptian Chemistry scholar was mad when he started building luxury residential units in the downtrodden city, but years later these units have given the town a facelift, and they are filled and he’s even building others.

Jeff Ament Releases New Solo Song

Pearl Jam bassist jeff Ament has released a new single entitled “Safe in the Car,” which will also be included in Ament’s upcoming album that will be called Heaven/Hell.

The song features both guitars and an organ and is about a slew of natural disasters, including fires and floods, Ament must avoid. “I don’t feel safe anymore,” Ament sings during the chorus of the song, which also includes vocals by indie singer Angel Olsen. Two Pearl Jam alumni — Matt Cameron on drums and Mike McCready on guitar — also appear on the track.

Interestingly, the music video for “Safe in the Car” was shot entirely in Ament’s own vehicle. Ament said that he was inspired to write the song after reading Cormac McCarthy’s apocalyptic novel The Road. He said that he wanted to capture the feeling of being in car trying to escape something like a nuclear winter.

Avent went on to say that — when the directors of the video asked him what kind of look he was aiming for — he told them that the first thing he thought of was Grindhouse. He says that he has always liked the look of the movie, especially its extreme high-contrast visuals. He also liked that — even though it was about the world coming to an end — it still had humor.

Heaven/Hell is expected to be released on May 10, and while it will be Ament’s third solo album, it will be his first since 2012, when he released While My Heart Beats. Fans can pre-order Heaven/Hell beginning on Thursday, which is when it will appear on Pearl Jam’s official website.

Ament says that the record came together accidentally. He says that he was writing songs for Pearl Jam, but sometimes the songs he writes either are too personal or they are just not right for the band.

Garbage To Tour America

This fall, indie rockers Garbage will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of Version 2.0 with an American tour of nearly 20 cities. During the tour, the band intends to play all the songs from Version 2.0, as well as B-sides from singles that were produced from around the same time the 1998 album was released.

Shirley Manson, who is the lead singer of the band, said in a statement that she thought that Version 2.0 is an album that truly represents what the band is about. She further said that she and her band mates were thankful for the millions of fans who supported the album when it came out, and those who still love it 20 years after the fact.

The tour starts off in Seattle on September 29, and it then makes its way toward the east coast. It will conclude in Brooklyn on October 27 at the Kings Theatre. Tickets for the tour will begin going on sale starting April 27.

Butch Vig, who is the drummer of Garbage, said that Version 2.0 was an important record for the band, as it represented the fact that they had both grown up and had evolved. It also showed that they had gained a certain degree of confidence. He further said that, while they were recording the record, they made an effort not to reinvent who they were. Instead, they wanted to take their sound and “filter it” through what was then new digital technology. He thinks that it just may be the band’s best record, and he says that it has moments of both clarity and beauty.

Also in honor of the 20th anniversary of Version 2.0, the band on June 22 will re-release the record, which will include the 10 B-sides from singles released around the album’s original release.

Apart from Seattle and Brooklyn, the tour will make stops in, among other places, Chicago, Washington, Boston and Philadelphia.

Jack White Stages Phone-Free Show

On Thursday, famed indie rocker Jack White opened a tour in support of his latest album called Boarding House Reach. The show took place in White’s hometown of Detroit, Michigan, and — like all forthcoming dates in the tour — fans were not allowed to bring their mobile devices with them into the show.

The show was at Little Caesars Arena, and audience members had to place their phones and other devices in secure pouches before entering the arena. This was so White could provide them with a “100% human experience,” as he called it in a statement he issued prior to the commencement of the tour.

The show, which represented the first time White had ever performed in a Detroit arena, was sold out, and critics called it “impressive.” Not only was the crowd a throwback to the days prior to smartphones, but there were also no video screens in the arena, and White and his band had no set list. They improvised the entire two-hour show. This created an intimate environment in what usually is an anything but intimate arena.

Some saw the show as White’s “love letter” to the city. First, all the opening acts were local products: the Craig Brown Band, Negative Approach and techno artist Mark Flash. There were also many members of the Detroit Tigers on hand.

The show began at exactly 9:45 p.m., and it featured songs from throughout White’s storied career. This included classic tunes from his White Stripes days, as well as ones from the Raconteurs and Dead Weather. He also performed songs from his solo career, both old and new.

In a touching moment, White’s mother joined him when he performed “Hotel Yorba.” She even danced on the stage as he sang.

Among the many songs he performed during the show were “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” “I Cut Like a Buffalo,” “Steady, as She Goes,” “Love Interruption,” “Sixteen Saltines,” and “Ball and Biscuit.”

Indie Artist Sophie Allison Releases New Album

Sophie Allison, a 20-year-old songwriter from Nashville, performs under the stage name Soccer Mommy. Born in Switzerland and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, she took up guitar at six and first uploaded her home-recorded music to Band Camp in 2015. She performed her first show as Soccer Mom in Bushwick, Brooklyn, in 2015, during her two-year stint as a student at New York University. She credits the cities of New York and Tennessee, as well as recording artists Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne, and Mitsi, with inspiring her career.

Her first two albums, “For Young Hearts” and “Connection” were released in 2016 and 2017. Sophie’s latest rendition is her new album proper titled “Clean” on March 2, 2018. Labeled the “artist you need to know in “Rollingstone”, Allison describes her latest work as “chill but kinda sad” but says her latest work makes everything she done before “sound like an audition”. Allison attributes her new sound to a lot of growing up during her two years in Brooklyn and the loss of a relationship with a boyfriend back in Nashville.

In an interview with Bandcamp in 2017, Allison said she got the idea to post her songs on the site the summer before she went away to college. When asked where she gets her inspiration, she said, “It’s just me clearing out my anxieties and insecurities through writing. There is no other way.”

Bandcamp was founded in 2007 as a microsite site to distribute music for independent artists, although it also includes some labeled artists. To minimize copyright infringement, Bandcamp provides free streaming while allowing artists to set their own prices for their music. In 2015, the company announced that is profits had reached $100 million.

Rolling Stones Announce U.K. Opening Acts

The Rolling Stones are stepping out of their rock and roll comfort zone and inviting a host of indie musicians to open for them on their highly anticipated summer tour. The No Filters tour will visit seven venues in the United Kingdom as well as Dublin, Ireland, in May and June. Fans in the U.K. are especially excited after the last Stones tour snubbed the region due to a lack of available venues. The addition of some interesting and eclectic supporting acts should delight fans looking for variety and fresh sounds, providing an ideal complement to the Stones’ classic music.

The Academic kicks off the tour on May 17 in Dublin, before the show hits up the U.K. Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher opens the first show at London Stadium, while hometown favorite Florence + The Machines takes the reigns for the second London engagement. The Vaccines get the honor in Southhampton and The Specials take over in Coventry. Concert-goers at Manchester’s Old Trafford show will enjoy the sound of English singer-songwriter Richard Ashcroft. Ashcroft gets a second engagement a few days later as the tour hits Edinburgh. Elbow opens the penultimate show at Cardiff, and the tour winds up with one last show at London’s Twickenham Stadium with “it” man James Bay.

After the U.K. portion of the tour wraps up, the Rolling Stones will take the road and visit a variety of European cities to round out the summer. Stops on this leg of the tour include Berlin, Stuttgart, Marseille, Prague, and Warsaw. Openings acts for these cities have not yet been announced, but stay tuned for more information. Tickets for the tour are on sale now at a variety of price points and package levels.

Netflix Isn’t Going To Cannes, But Orson Welles Is

Just two weeks ago, streaming giant Netflix announced that it would not participate in the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. The decision was initially confirmed by Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer (CCO), during an interview with Variety.

The decision came after a move by Cannes to ban films from competition if they weren’t distributed in French theaters – Cannes Film Festival is hosted annually in France.

Netflix could screen movies at the event, though they wouldn’t be up for competition. According to CCO Sarandos, “I don’t think it would be good for us to be there.”

The company was slated to bring Orson Welles’ unfinished “The Other Side of the Wind,” though now nobody outside of Netflix’s in-house staff will see the movie before it’s released. While Orson Welles will still make a theatrical appearance in the form of Mark Cousin’s documentary “The Eyes of Orson Welles,” the movie everyone was waiting for in “The Other Side of the Wind” will just have to wait until it’s official release time.

Worthy of note is that “The Other Side of the Wind” still could have competed for the screen festival’s grand prize, the Palme d’Or, though Netflix held strong on its decision to back out of the event.

Netflix also has another Orson Welles flick up its sleeve, the documentary “20 Feet From Stardom,” which is about Morgan Neville, an acclaimed actor. “20 Feet From Stardom,” too, would have been eligible for the grand prize at the popular Cannes Film Festival.

At least Orson Welles is still planned to make a posthumous appearance in the aforementioned documentary in which he’s the subject, a movie that was created with the help of Orson’s daughter Beatrice.

“I always wanted to make a documentary about my father’s artwork,” said the heir of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.

Indie Music Icon Releases New Single

Throughout her career, indie musician and performer Janelle Monae has consistently been true to her own artistic vision, and her new single, “I Like That” is a celebration of the individuality that has helped her gain so much positive attention from fans and critics. Rolling Stone Magazine has a preview of the tune, which is from Monae’s soon-to-be-released “Dirty Computer” album, on its website. Monae herself describes the album as an “emotion picture.”

“I Like That” has a slow, yet intricate 4/4 beat. In many respects, it’s like the beats on many current rap records; however, it’s not as fast. Synthesizers are used to create a dramatic sound that’s part cabaret, part 1980’s, and Monae’s powerful voice, of course, makes the track ascendant.

The lyrics express the idea that it’s best to be true to yourself and to do what you want artistically even if you’re the only one who likes a particular style. Monae reflects on being younger and being teased for looking different and knowing that she was cool even as her feelings were hurt. As someone known for having an eclectic and unpredictable sense of style – Monae frequently performs in a tuxedo – it’s clearly a philosophy that she’s practiced as well as preached.

Personally, I think it’s awesome that Monae is putting out new music, and I’m guessing that “I Like That” will help her music, fashion and outlook reach a broader audience. Monae’s last record, the highly acclaimed “Electric Lady” came out in 2013, so it’s been a while since her fans have heard new material, and I’m confident that it will be worth the wait.

Liam Payne and J Blavin’s New Song For The Summer

One of the many definitions for indie music is “a small independent pop group” (although small and “pop”, short for popular, seem counterintuitive in my opinion). It can also be defined as a genre, in which case we could see a large, popular indie rock band. Part of the nature of being an “independent” artist also stems from a resistance to the establishment, in most cases pertaining to major corporations.

Writer Sydney Gore urges us to “get familiar” in the title of an article covering Liam Payne & J Balvin. The title is both a play on the song’s title “Familiar” and an insinuation that these two are somewhat underground. They’re decidedly not independent in the sense that they are signed to the top record labels in the country.

The medium tempo song has a house vibe to it. The Spanish lyrics and guitar are the perfect sounds for summer. Even though the song is certainly not indie rock, and I can’t understand enough of what their saying to speak on the message, I would classify them as “indie” simply for being under my radar. Though Liam came from One Direction, his career has been more low-key than the teeny bop sensation. J Blavin keeps the indie clout strong as reggaeton is still primarily underground in the U.S.

Even though MTV appears to be showcasing more undergound music, this song probably won’t stay that way after breaking on the major network. MTV has also brought back TRL and I give it a matter of time before I see performances from the show popping up on Youtube. Endless options are available to the average media consumer, almost as if everything is underground until we go looking for it. Making music and writing a part of my life again means being interested in seeking out what others are writing about and listening to by simply showing up to their URL.

Ski Mask The Slump God Covers “Boy Meets World”

When discussing indie music, there are always several angles to consider. In today’s music business, wrought with conglomerations, you’d be hard pressed to find a successful band with absolutely no affiliations. Are we talking unpopular? These days, Soundcloud rappers are breaking their first album with 200,000 in the first week. So what about the message?

I think of indie music in a nostalgic way, not because I’m old, but because there’s a whole new generation of teenagers and twenty-something year olds who know more about what’s current than I do. I haven’t visited MTV in awhile and I’m surprised to see very few names I recognize. Does that mean MTV is indie now?

I remember keeping abreast of bands through publications like The Fader and Electronic Musician Mag back when they were in print. Rap and hip hop have always been a little tricky, they’ve only recently began to be covered in subculture news en masse. I’d never heard of Ski Mask the Slump God before reading about him on MTVs website.

Upon further inquiry, I discovered the Florida rapper has recorded with XXXtentacion and Lil Pump, both of whom I would say are becoming increasingly more popular. The article was in reference to a cover of the Boys Meets World theme song done by Ski Mask the Slump God (are we really expected to say that whole thing together each time?). The classic 1990s sitcom is a brand I am familiar with, so I felt I had to review the song.

A particularly raunchy lyrical cadence over a standard trap beat, I would rate the song tolerable. I did not, however, recognize a trace of the TV show’s sample. As far as the message, I could see the irony in doing a cover of a mainstream, family oriented program accompanied by lyrics that reference graphic sexual acts.
