Morning Music Notes – The Magic Piano

Justin Bieber Fan Wants a Hug, Instead We Get Chaos on Stage

Justin Bieber with the lead headline – this blog has gone to the dogs. Don’t worry, we’ll post more great songs today to make up for it (note: not necessarily true). Anyway, the Biebs was in Dubai playing his live show and some fan decided they wanted to get up close and personal during the show. They either bribed security and found a way past these rocket scientists and managed to get on stage. As they ran at Bieber, so did some security guards, and down went the piano. Amazingly – the fallen piano kept playing by itself – I need one of those so I can become a musician, too!

I should give credit where credit is due – Bieber brushed off the incident and kept singing and didn’t make a fuss. Check it out below, and watching the rest of the song after the incident is not required or even recommended.

Lauren Hill Writes a Tune for the Tax Man

Lauren Hill has a deadline at the end of next week to pay the taxes she evaded on her $1.8 Million in earnings from 2005-2007. She has been given a lifeline by Sony to launch some new music and stay out of jail. She released a new track, which she finished earlier than planned in order to help pay the bills. She writes on the YouTube description for the track Neurotic Society:

“Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there.”

The track has a ton of lyrics, often delivered rapid fire style. Check out the latest from tax dodger Lauren Hill below.

Klaxons’ James Righton Becomes Luckiest Man on Earth, Marries Kiera Knightley

I’m a big fan of the debut album by Klaxons, and their follow up was good, too. But they aren’t a huge band, and even less so in the United States, where a headline read “Kiera Knightley Marries Musician”. Ouch. Oh well, the ‘musician’ James Righton can comfort himself in the arms of Kiera, who he married on Saturday (via NME). Now that the courtship of Kiera is over, can we get a third record from the lads?

CHVRCHES Remix MS MR, Too Many Capital Letters for Fans to Handle

MSMR Secondhand Rapture

Glasgow synthpoppers CHVRCHES (who we interviewed back in March) have remixed MS MR’s track Hurricane, which was previously remixed by Twin Shadow.

The track definitely gets a positive sounding synth sound to it, turning the song to a more upbeat tune both tempo-wise and emotionally. Check out the remix below.
