What nice eventful weekend. Going out with few friends and listening to some good music sipping a nice single malt and few brews. @nipseyhussle Victory Lap was stellar. The whole album had alot of energy from start to finish, a killer west coast feel. This is definitely going to be up there this year for 2018. Tracks I liked: Hussle & motivate and grinding all my life. Next one was an exciting one, US Girls being only the 2nd album I've heard from them ( previous one was Half Free) this definetly delivered. "A poem unlimited" had an interesting indie pop and soul mix. Definitely if you want to sit back and relax must listen!!! Tracks I liked: Velvet 4 sale and L-over. Now must go to my studies Both are Rated: highly recommended (this year is strong for music) #audiophile#musicgeek
The 1970s saw a doo-wop revival. The United Group Harmony Association (UGHA) formed mid-decade helping to preserve doo-wop and the sounds of the rhythm & blues vocal groups of the late 40s through the early 60s, and many a capella groups formed and began touring the famous "doo-wop regions" of New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Baltimore/DC and Philly. Arguably, the most famous of those groups were New York's The Persuasions. Among the great Philly groups of this time was The Neighbors Complaint.
This track is Gloria, which has become one of the anthems of doo-wop. Pretty much every group has recorded it. The most famous being The Cadillacs in 1954 and The Passions in 1960 (their's was a regional hit in eastern cities). Singing lead for The Neighbors Complaint on Gloria is "Golden Voice" Harry Schmidt - A Philly police officer who worked with my old man.
Now playing the self-titled album by The Black Belles. Produced by Jack White.

Singing sand, also called whistling sand or barking sand, is sand that produces sound. The sound emission may be caused by wind passing over dunes or by walking on the sand.
Certain conditions have to come together to create singing sand:
The sand grains have to be round and between 0.1 and 0.5 mm in diameter.
The sand has to contain silica.
The sand needs to be at a certain humidity.
The most common frequency emitted seems to be close to 450 Hz.
There are various theories about the singing sand mechanism. It has been proposed that the sound frequency is controlled by the shear rate. Others have suggested that the frequency of vibration is related to the thickness of the dry surface layer of sand. The sound waves bounce back and forth between the surface of the dune and the surface of the moist layer, creating a resonance that increases the sound's volume. The noise may be generated by friction between the grains or by the compression of air between them.
Other sounds that can be emitted by sand have been described as "roaring" or "booming". Singing sand dunes, an example of the phenomenon of singing sand, produce a sound described as roaring, booming, squeaking, or the "Song of Dunes". This is a natural sound phenomenon of up to 105 decibels, lasting as long as several minutes, that occurs in about 35 desertlocations around the world. The sound is similar to a loud low-pitch rumble. It emanates from crescent-shaped dunes, or barchans. The sound emission accompanies a slumping or avalanching movement of sand, usually triggered by wind passing over the dune or by someone walking near the crest. #sand#dunes#soundbarrier#sound#acoustic#fast#audio#audiophile#wave#temperature#pressure#ear#noise#signal#output#input#refraction#antenna#frequency#decibel#silence#test#modularsynth#envelope#adsr#modular#nomad#diffuser#absorber
