CHM focuses on promoting new musicians

The music label has been identifying potential artists in their project to bring new sound to PNG.

The first to drop this year was Kid Nesian with Stap Wantem Yu.

“We’ve come across a lot of good talent, Brian is one of them and there’s going to be a lot more coming up,” CHM manager, Artist & Repertoire, Renata Mari told Loop PNG.

“All these recordings were done last year but because we didn’t have the platform to monetize those songs, we didn’t release.

I've loved Guns N' Roses since grade 5 so I had to come. My olds were pretty strict and wouldn't let me come when I was 14. I'm 38 now and they're old men.

Musicals come last in sexy music poll

According to a new poll, songs from musicals are the least likely to get played in the British bedroom.

Musicals came dead last in a list of the 19 genres of music that couples listen to as the lights go down.

Even chamber music, thrash metal and hymns ranked higher in a survey of more than 2,000 people conducted by Birmingham's Symphony Hall.

So what musical genre was judged to have the most sex appeal? Well, it's no surprise to find it's good ol' R&B.

This trend comes despite the assumption that the digital age would eventually do away with analogue.

Professor Fernandez and her fellow researcher Professor Michael Beverland from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology decided to investigate the trend by focussing on the allure of vinyl records.

They conducted in-depth interviews with collectors from New Zealand, the UK and the US.

Most were men, mainly in their 20s and 30s. One put in his wedding vows that his wife would never make him stop collecting, another had 7000 records stored in his mother's garage.

The 12 Days Of Christmas: A secret code for persecuted Catholics?

To many who have heard dozens of adaptations, the song seems to bring together a random bunch of animals and people like "eight maids a-milking" and "11 pipers piping".

But the meaning behind the familiar and cheerful song may have been closely tied with religious teachings, according to historical theologian Associate Professor Bronwen Neil from the Australian Catholic University.
