New Music

Ideal Zero

Editor’s Note: The folks at Go-DIY Records were kind enough to post a note that TDMB welcomes new music. Several bands have sent me links and samples. My plan is to post the music in the order in which it came in and to present all or some of what the band (or its management) submits.

Next up is Ideal Zero. The song below is “Before We Drown.”

Here is what the band says about itself:

Formed in 2010 by lead vocalist Irina and her husband Clint, Ideal Zero is a classically infused alternative rock group from Orlando, FL. Their debut 5 song EP was released in April 2012 and was produced by renowned producer Brett Hestla, who has been behind the hits of Framing Hanley, Dark New Day, Tantric, Starcity Meltdown and more.

With influences of metal, jazz, and electronic music, Ideal Zero has created a unique blend of hard hitting music with heartfelt lyrics and infectious melodies. Ideal Zero is currently working on their first full length album with Brett Hestla, scheduled for release in 2013. The band is on Facebook, ReverbNation, YouTube and Twitter.

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.

The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").

David Dodd's exhaustive study tells the story, song by song. Click here or on the image.
