Buzz Track: Mind My Halo
Irontom emerged in early 2012 on the Los Angeles music scene. The band features Zach the son of Jack Irons (former drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, currently drumming for The Wall Flowers). Zack was taught to play guitar by guitar virtuoso John Frusciante. Their sound ranges from The Arctic Monkeys to Led Zeppelin. The band recently finished a full length album with producer Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Chris Cornell) and release date and touring news will be posted soon.
This could be the end of Music Television and a new beginning for YouTube. Although MTV abandoned music years ago the backlash is clear as day.
“What a difference a year makes for MTV’s “Video Music Awards,” and not in a good way.
MTV’s annual big event last week was seen by 6.1 million viewers, less than half of the 12.4 million who watched in 2011, when the show was believed to be MTV’s most-watched program ever, according to Nielson” (AP)
The show wasn’t lacking star power either. Taylor Swift, Frank Ocean, Green Day, Pink and Alicia Keys with Nicki Minaj all performed.

Scooter Braun signed Korean Web Star Psy. The question remains if Braun can turn him into the next popular artist.
“Braun has become the music industry’s biggest and most successful proponent of social media. He became Justin Bieber’s manager after finding him on YouTube, and recently helped make Carly Rae Jepsen a household name through viral videos of her hit “Call Me Maybe.”Mr. Braun has become the music industry’s biggest and most successful proponent of social media. He became Justin Bieber’s manager after finding him on YouTube, and recently helped make Carly Rae Jepsen a household name through viral videos of her hit “Call Me Maybe.”
On Monday, Mr. Braun, 31, announced — on YouTube, appropriately enough — that he had made a deal with Psy, a South Korean rapper whose comic video “Gangnam Style” has become an online sensation this summer. Sitting with Psy, and apparently sealing the deal with a bottle of stiff Korean liquor, Mr. Braun said they had “come to an agreement to make some history together.” (NY Times)
