Nearing the start of a warm summer, musical festival propaganda is starting to heat up. The time when music becomes full swing in every fan’s heart. It’s a fantasy world of every type of music that is on the scene. Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza are still the major music festivals for great music. Also there are several new to the summer festival line-up this year like, Rothbury Music Festival in Michigan. But the main one that I always attend is Perry Farrel’s Lollapalooza. The lead singer of great bands like Porno for Pyros and Jane’s Addiction has come up with a line up with interesting new relevance to the music industry. Two of the three headliners for the festival are Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead. Both bands decided to make and release their new albums off their websites. When these festivals make the industry the most money, Lolla’s headliners revolt. Even though NIN and Radiohead are performing there are plenty other artists that should be named; Lupe Fiasco, Bloc Party, and The Raconteurs.

The most exciting band to see on this year’s lineup is the stylistic fabloo band, Tally Hall. With an industrial release of “Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum”, the title based off a weird museum made of the most random and exciting artifacts, broke way to fame. An album that ranges from harmonic vocals to a collection of the most intelligent lyricists today, Tally Hall will revive your musical yearning of creative music. In 2004, Andrew Horowitz who sings and plays numerous instruments won the John Lennon Scholarship of Music Writing for “Good Day”. The band is creative in so many ways that they even produce many webisodes of concerts and comedic videos on their YouTube site. Even each band member is creative with at each performance while calming fame by a different color tie ( Rob=Yellow, Zubin=Blue, Joe=Red, Andrew=Green, and Ross=Grey). So see these guys at Lollapalooza for their own hits and covers of Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend” and Fatboy Slims, “Praise You.” They already are a hit on YouTube with 42 videos so check them out and get their new studio re-release of “Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum”.

    “In 2004, Rob Cantor who sings and plays numerous instruments won the John Lennon Scholarship of Music Writing for ‘Good Day’.”

    It was actually Andrew Horowitz who wrote “Good Day,” which won the John Lennon Scholarship Contest from the BMI foundation of $10,000, whereas Rob Cantor wrote “Just Apathy” which won only Session II of the JLSC and not the Scholarship.

    Tally Hall is indeed excellent, though.
