This sounds like a really interesting idea.
SoundCloud isn’t done exploring new avenues just because it’s facing tough times. The streaming audio service is partnering with The Fader on a documentary miniseries, SoundCloud Next Wave, that spotlights underground music scenes in six cities ranging from New York to Rio de Janeiro. The first episode (which focuses on LA’s burgeoning goth rap scene) premieres on SoundCloud’s YouTube channel on July 20th at 10AM Eastern, and you’ll get a new episode each month for the rest of 2017. It’s something of a gamble for SoundCloud, but it might be one of the company’s wiser strategies given some of its recent messes.

Books have been a lifelong obsession for Larry Gianakos.
“When I was a teenager, I never thought of automobiles,” the Warren native said. “I thought of first editions.”
Gianakos, 64, became an author himself, creating the seven-volume reference work “Television Drama Series Programming: A Comprehensive Chronicle, 1947-2008.” And that fascination with books inspired him to try to amass a comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning works — a collection that helped inspire the documentary “The Pulitzer at 100,” which premieres Friday in New York.

Really excited for this one. I’m a bit of a documentary nerd anyway, so naturally Ken Burns is one of my loves. But to have a Ken Burns documentary dealing with the primary issue this Nation faced during my childhood, the Vietnam War, paired with the music of the era soundtrack created by Trent Reznor, is going to be nothing short of amazing.
The article states that this will be a 10-part series and is scheduled for this fall. I’ll post more when I learn the actual schedule. Can’t wait.
Ken Burns and Trent Reznor would seem two unlikely collaborators, but both describe their recent work on the upcoming PBS documentary on the Vietnam War as among the most satisfying of their careers.
