The Big Sun are made up of this lovely young lady who looks much like many teenage children do, wearing that expression of boredom mixed with exasperation. She does have big massive eyes that i'm sure many fifteen year old boys are going to get lost in and she does make sunny pop music of the good kind, ably assisted by several members of fellow Oxford inhabitants Ride. Who this writer use to listen to as a teenager, whilst looking sullen and bored Check it out here
Folk? Blues? Jazz? Rock? Reggae? Trip Hop? Funk? John refuses to conform to any particular music genre whilst simultaneously embracing them all. Without fail he always takes the less travelled road in search of new experiences and inspirations. The diversity and quality of John's music is undeniably stunning. A virtuoso musician with a voice to melt the coldest of hearts.
Put simply John Martyn is unique.

If you are searching for epic cinematic rock for your sports montage or trailer, then look no further.
Headlights is our particular favourite, but the standard is top notch throughout.
Check out Morning Parade here
Filthy dirty dancefloor wonkiness that will most certainly make you look down with the kids.
Perfect for selling soft drinks with insane amounts of caffeine (and probably horse meat) in them, or items of clothing that you wouldn't be seen dead in unless you were going through some kind of mid life crisis.
Check Out Skifonix Here
I'm sure you are all as glad as we are to be back at work. While we nurse our hangovers, we thought we would bring some of those under the radar acts to your attention.
First up are The Milk. Hailing from Essex, not the deep south as you may have thought, they wear their soul influences proudly on their sleeve. For a start, they call the album "Tales from the Thames Delta"
This is Sync music 101 ladies and gents. Check them out Here
I'm sure most of you probably know this fellow already, but just in case you don't. His music is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. for sync.
Pristine, dreamy, emotive electronica that could make a corporate video talking about annual results seem like a piece of life affirming cinema starring Tom Hanks.
Check out his tracks here
We know that sometimes, a track's value isn't really apparent until it's had a bit of an edit. Our very own edit master, the mysterious Mr DB has chopped up a load of tracks to make your lives easier. This will be a regular thing, which we hope will be of great use to you lovely people. Get the edits here.
This French/British electro pop band are keeping the spirit of Entente Cordiale alive and well. We think that the name is a reference to the Goldfrapp song rather than their favourite yoghurt flavour but people can always surprise you. The instrumentals are killer by the way.
Get it all Here
Has anyone ever heard the term Wenglish?
Not me for one.
It means someone who lives on the England Wales borders. I'm now going to spend the day finding out if there are such things as Franish or Norweidish people too. Why don't you have a listen to this lot in the meantime. Big, epic, emotive spacey Rock in a Doves/Coldplay style.

Just to clarify, this is not erstwhile British rap star and actor/director Ben Drew aka Plan B singing a song about a girl called Lily Juniper. This is fifteen year old Brit School prodigy Lily Juniper singing a song about a Plan B. We at Cue towers are not convinced it is the Plan B mentioned above, rather a melancholy ditty about unrequited love as a teenager. Either way we love it and she's probably going to be massive. Get it Here.
This weekend sees the first major Super Mega Duper Sunday of footy matches this season. Man United take on Liverpool and Arsenal take on Man City.
We thought this should inspire a playlist of music suitable for such titanic struggles between badly coiffed rich boys with too much money.
We'll be watching....
Check out the Big Matches, Big Music in our playlist section
Here's our favourite to whet your appetite Here
Australia may have sucked badly at the Olympics, but the music they produce is still gold medal standard(sigh). Signed by the same label that signed the Killers, this lot are destined for big things. Big, emotive, slightly psychedelic and very very synchable. Check out the track 'Dutch Medicine' Here
Hereford is the kind of place you would expect to find cattle not a funky, British equivalent to the Beastie Boys. But the clue is in their name - British duo The Anomalies really are the odd ones out. With a unique blend of funk, indie and hip hop, their loud, upbeat tracks have more beef than a Hereford cow.

We made this to tell you what we do. We hope you like it.... Soundtrack is Groove Armada - Chicago. Proof of concept that small business can afford big bands. Enjoy....
We like this album a lot. It's like if MGMT were on Happy Pills. In fact this lot were involved in the first MGMT album , which is better than being involved in the second. Our favourites are "Up all Night", "This Moment" and "Last Summer" but it's all good. This would be great for feel good advertising spots with just the right amount of quirk. Actually, is that even a word? Get "The Infinite Music of the French Horn Rebellion" HERE
This album has been the soundtrack to our bleary mornings and our more introspective afternoons. Think Massive Attack meets Burial. This is the background music to the wide eyed cab journey home after a messy session in a dark club. Fuzzy vision and muffled eardrums as the streets pass by in a haze. Synch-wise, brilliant for dark night time drama and introspection if you are making a film. If you're not, the great thing is it's not too dark and menacing, so it could do fashion, technology and we fancy there is a great car ad in there somewhere. Check out Phaeleh here
This is a classic example of a track that we all think was a massive hit, when in fact it didn't even make the top 40 when it was released back in 1982. I'm sure we have all danced badly to this one in indie discos whilst murdering the simple, yet epic chorus. Well maybe it was just me. The eighties revival continues apace with synths on absolutely everything it seems. So why the hell not use an eighties record and a brilliant one at that. Check out Love My Way Here
Every so often we get a band at Cue that everyone gets excited about. This is one of those times. Lights and Motion is the brainchild of a young Swede called Christoffer Franzen. It is, to put it simply, uplifting in the truest sense of the word.Every single track is a gem and if you are looking for something to provide that hairs on the back of the neck moment for your film or ad,then this is just the job.Magic.
No one does eccentric quite like the Brits.
This is warm, quirky heartfelt and life affirming, with a wide variety of great tracks that will add that little bit of warmth to your production and of course that little bit of oddness too. Check them out Here
Hello everybody, While most of you guys have been out partying, we have been beavering away on a new site, which will be ready any moment now.

Merry Christmas and a happy new Cue!
Have a look at this folks.. Fans and musicians of Chapel Club are not only to be able to remix the track. Remixers can also keep all the profits from their creations. This will be wholly unique in that Chapel Club will be giving remixers the recording rights to the remix, and thus any sales profits will go straight to the remixers – something which has never been done before. The band have teamed up with CueSongs to allow remixers to put their remixes forward for sync opportunities, giving them the chance to get their remix licensed. Go to www.chapelclub.com for details
With a lovely combination of dreamy vocals and synthetic beats, surf-pop group Caged Animals' Eat Their Own is the perfect album for a nice summer road trip. Only 5879 hours until next summer - I'll start the car...
Search for Caged Animals and check them out...
This lot just keep getting better and better.
After the rock theatrics of Survival and the dubstep theatrics of Unsustainable, the actual single is far more low key. Underpinned by a squelchy bassline, the track somewhat reminds us of Faith by George Michael. We are sure this will polarise the fans of Muse hugely, but we are firmly in the "like" pole. It's the one that has penguins if you are wondering.
I once heard Mumford and Sons described as The Pogues for people who shop at Waitrose. Well, truth be told we do shop at Waitrose and yes we do like Mumford and Sons, so i guess "they" were right. Britains biggest recent musical export across the pond (apart from Adele) return with a barnstorming 5 minutes of stompy indie folk. Yes it sounds a bit like "The Cave" but we're not complaining and neither should you.
With Kele Okereke's recent dalliance with Martin Solveig on top of producing his own electro album, we thought that it would probably give us a clue where the next Bloc Party album would be going. It hasn't at all though to be fair and we are back to what made Silent Alarm such a joy. It's actually one of the poppiest tracks they have written. Full of choppy guitars and woo woo's, it seems they have come out into this new decade smiling.Bravo we say.
Ok, so "Day and Age" was a bit of a letdown.But you always felt that Brandon Flowers had a lot to get out of his system before we got back to basics and were rocking out again. This sounds like the title track to a lost John Hughes film with a bit of American Pie thrown in for good measure. This is a good thing, We Promise. An emotive uplifting piece, this is surely destined for a movie promo on a screen near you soon. Also expect the instrumental to soundtrack many a football match to come. The new album "Battle born" is out in September.
Whilst indie music continues to have a tough time of it, this lot continue to buck the trend. "Teenage Icon" The new single from the forthcoming sophomore album "Come of Age" showcases the more Punk Rock direction that the second album has taken and it sounds pretty good to us. The new album is to be released on 3 September and a previously released EP called ‘No Hope’ is out now. The tracklisting for the album is: 1. No Hope 2. I Always Knew 3. Teenage Icon 4. All in Vain 5. Ghost Town 6. Aftershave Ocean 7. Weirdo 8. Bad Mod 9. Change Of Heart pt. 2 10. I Wish I Was A Girl 11. Lonely World

Licensing enables owners of Copyrighted work to grant permission to individuals and businesses to use that work in a clearly expressed way. The license typically will define the specific usage that the individual or business in able to use the work for, as well as the territory and the duration of the license granted. Licensing Music is a complicated process because there are typically more than one “Right-holders” from whom you need to get permission from to use the work as well. There are also a number of different “Rights” that you need to be granted in order to use the work.
The term "copyright" refers to the exclusive rights of the author or creator of an original work, including the right to copy, distribute and adapt that work. These rights can be licensed, transferred and/or assigned. Copyright protects original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works, sound recordings, films, broadcasts and the typographical arrangement of a published edition (i.e. how it looks on the page). The legal framework for copyright in the UK is the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 [CDPA] as amended.
In the UK, the terms of copyright in a musical or literary work lasts for a period of 70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the composer or author dies. A sound recording is generally protected for 50 years from the end of the year in which the recording is made. This means that most recordings made by known musicians and songwriters will be covered under copyright and that you will need to obtain a license to use them.
Essentially there are two principle right-holders to think about in music licensing. Firstly, the composer of a song who wrote the tune and the lyrics of a track. Composers are normally represented by Music Publishers who will contract with the composer to represent them over a period of time and own the rights in the song’s “Composition” over that time.
Second, the Recording Artist or Band perform and record the track or piece. Recording Artists /Bands are normally represented by Record Companies who also will contract with the them to own the rights in the Master Recording over that time.
So in summary, in order to license a track for commercial usage, you would need the permission of the Rights-holder to the Composition as well as the rights-holder to the Master Recording
From a legal standpoint, there two different Rights that you need from the Right-holder of the Composition and the Rights-holder of the Master Recording in order to commercially use a track.
The “Mechanical Right” allows you to make a single copy of the track for your specific usage and is due at the time of obtaining a license. The “Performance Right” is due each time the work is performed, either in a public environment or in “Online” or “Broadcast” environment.
So, what ever you intend to do with the music, you will need a license for each of these rights for both the Composition and the Master Recording giving a total of four rights that you need to obtain ahead of using the music. This is why music licensing is so complicated.
Cuesongs sells music from a broad range of well-known and featured artists for use by websites or businesses in their marketing or digital media. Cuesongs mainly licenses to companies or websites who want to use music in an audiovisual production where music is synced to picture or video or used as background music. This is termed as “synchronisation”.
Normally a website wanting to use a copyrighted work would have obtain permission from both right-holders directly. In order to do this the website would have to make contact with both those rights-holders and negotiate with them in order to reach an agreement under what terms they will grant a license for this usage. This can take a lot of time and is quite complicated because of the legal issues that are tied up with copyrighted work.
Cuesongs makes this process a lot easier by “pre-clearing” music for specific usages with rights-holders on behalf of music users clients. We provide a “One Stop Shop” so that music users can come to us and instantaneously purchase the four licenses required for them to be able to use this music commercially in a straightforward e commerce transaction.
Cuesongs also makes it easier for music users to find the track most suitable for their usage and budget with an online search tool and a team of experienced music supervisors at the other end of a phone line.
In summary we make a complicated process a lot easier saving you time and energy required to do this.
Copyright encourages a dynamic creative culture, returning value to creators, whilst providing for affordable access to content for the public. Copyright legislation provides a balance between the interests of those who invest skills and intellectual effort, time and money in the creation of works on one hand and those who want to use and enjoy those works on the other.
