Morning Music Notes – What Comes Around in Sampling Lawsuits

One of my favourite songs of late has been by Gambles and his track So I Cry Out. The rawness in his voice – and his lyrics – transports me (unfortunately not literally).

The video stars Gambles (aka Matthew Daniel Siskin) and his girlfriend, actress Nola. They fool around in a mainly unscripted video. Check it out below and keep an eye on ME Trust, which is out September 30 / October 1.

Morning Music Notes

Major League Baseball did a documentary on the number 9, and used Arcade Fire’s Reflektor track (release on 9/9/9pm) in it. The band also got in a little trouble from a resident in Austin for their graffiti campaign. Win Butler’s response was spray painted on the side of a building (via Pitchfork)

The Beatles will release On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2 on November 11. It will include tons of useless out takes performances of early songs and cover tunes. The album follows 19 years after the original BBC album in 1994 (via Billboard)

Arctic Monkeys are on pace to crack the Top 10 of the Billboard charts for the first time since their second album with new release AM. Help them out, will ya? (via Gigwise)

Beastie Boys win some and lose some of their Paul’s Boutique sampling lawsuit, including some interesting rulings behind the samples (via Hollywood Reporter)
