Young Thug's Punk Cred

Posted by Juan Hernandez-Cruz on Oct 14, 2021 10:00:00 AM

Examining Young Thug’s punk cred from a music curation perspective.

Here at Feed Media Group, curators like myself spend hours listening to music from all genres in search of the perfect songs for our clients. The musical knowledge we share is vast, and for me, a genre that I’m especially in tune with is punk. That’s why when Young Thug announced that his new album was actually going to be called P*nk, for punk, I had to take a closer look.

Top 10 Kacey Musgraves Lyrical Truth-Bombs

Posted by Claire McConnell on Sep 9, 2021 9:00:00 AM

The award-winning and commercial success of Kacey Musgraves’s genre-fluid third album Golden Hour, and subsequent mainstream recognition, inevitably moved her more firmly into the pop quadrant of the country and pop crossover scatter plot. She has always been acutely aware of her position outside of the country mainstream, and many of her songs acknowledge (and even celebrate) that reality.

APIs: Streamlining music integration for apps

Posted by Lauren Pufpaf on Aug 25, 2021 11:00:00 AM

At Feed Media Group (FMG), we have an amazing team of curators (recently highlighted here) that bring our brand partner’s soundtracks to life. But before that team can start working their magic, the music must first be acquired, packaged and cleared in a painstaking process handled by our equally talented and hard-working engineering team. This team is also responsible for wrangling the large volume of data sent by the music rightsholders on a regular basis. To be able to do this, they rely heavily on our proprietary music APIs.

Posted by Arturno Lovazzano on Jul 27, 2021 10:00:00 AM

For music lovers from Gen X to Boomers, the unthinkable has recently happened. While an emerging trend since the turn of the century, it’s now clear that rock music is no longer the most popular music genre in the US. Rock ruled the charts for over 40 years, but before that jazz was the dominant preference for most listeners, especially teenagers and young adults. Is Rock the New Jazz?
