When Logan Mize released his Pawn Shop Guitar EP earlier this year, it marked an important step forward for the singer: his first major label project. He's put out two albums independently, but the goal was always to end up in the big leagues. "Being an independent artist, I was able to learn a lot of things, get hands on experience and figure out how things worked a little bit," he tells Rolling Stone Country of releasing the first music of his catalog via his publishing company, Big Yellow Dog Music. "I was always looking to be on a major label though, to take the pressure off myself." 22 Best Things We Saw at FarmBorough 2015 His first set of tunes for Arista Nashville, Pawn Shop Guitar opens with vigor, as if a weight has indeed been lifted from the singer's shoulders. "Thank God For You," the EP's lead track, is as close as country gets to power pop, with guitars chugging in stacked formations. Mize sounds like he could be studying Paul Westerberg's solo work (especially 2002's Mono), resulting in a riff-fueled, raggedly catchy tune. "El Camino" is even more carefree, as the singer-songwriter incorporates a self-assured sneer and fills the track with barely-veiled innuendos. Mize's take on the tune is humble. . . and a bit surprising. "I'm not afraid to write a stupid song," he freely admits. "That's just totally stupid, and so is 'Can't Get Away From a Good Time,' — I put two of them on the same EP. I'll go anywhere if there's a story to tell or an interesting way to say something. Even if it's making up a word, I'll do it." He wasn't always this confident. Mize is critical of his self-titled debut, which he released when he was 23. "I wasn't a good singer yet," he admits. "And I'm not saying I am now, but [my] songwriting was still developing." Nobody in Nashville, which arrived three years later, "was really raw. A lot of analog, no vocal tuning or anything like that." For Pawn Shop Guitar and the full-length album that will eventually follow it, Mize is polishing things up. "This one's a little bit more slick," he explains. "We use a little bit more synth, a little fancier equipment." The slickness suits him, especially considering that one of his top three all-time favorite singers is Elton John — not an artist frequently name-checked by up-and-comers in Nashville. (The other two are more common: Alan Jackson and Tom Petty, the latter of whom Mize has been covering during recent performances.) "[Elton John] was who got me into music as a kid," Mize remembers. "That was all my dad listened to. He had Madman Across The Water on tape, Tumbleweed Connection, all that stuff. Going to school every day, all we had to listen to was the tape deck in his jeep." Though John had a hit single under his belt by his second album, Mize stresses that he doesn't want to rush things at the expense of constructing a sturdy foundation for a long career. "I just try to stay busy, get out and play the shows and not worry too much about getting the big break," he says. "I enjoy taking it slow and building it up to something rather than having a big breakthrough — and then falling off the map."

Charanjit Singh, a Bollywood composer and session musician that became an accidental pioneer in acid house music, passed away Sunday at his home in Mumbai, India. He was 75. The Wire reports that Singh died in his sleep.  In 1982, after decades working in Bollywood and releasing cover albums of popular Indian songs, Singh recorded his Synthesizing: Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat, an LP that boasted many of the hallmarks of acid house while predating the outbreak of that genre by five years. 20 Best Chicago House Records To craft his sound, Singh made innovative use of the Roland TB 303 bass synthesizer – an instrument regarded as the backbone of acid house – paired with another machine, the Roland TR 808, one of the earliest programmable drum machines. Armed with his two instruments, Singh used the 303 to pump out Indian ragas while employing the 808 to give those traditional melodies a more contemporary beat. From there, Synthesizing: Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat was created. "There was lots of disco music in films back in 1982," Singh told The Guardian in 2011. "So I thought why not do something different using disco music only. I got an idea to play all the Indian ragas and give the beat a disco beat – and turn off the tabla. And I did it. And it turned out good." However, upon release, Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat was a commercial failure. "It didn't click," Singh said. "It didn't have any publicity. Only sometimes you could hear it on the All-Indian radio station, filling the gaps." However, five years later in 1987, the Chicago acid house trio Phuture released their classic "Acid Tracks," catalyzing the acid house movement and firmly putting a name on the genre Singh accidentally helped create. While there was no connection between Singh and the Chicago scene that helped spread acid house, Singh was later regarded as an unintentional pioneer in a field that later bore acts like 808 State and Aphex Twin. (When Singh's manager Rana Ghose played him Phuture's "Acid Tracks" for the first time in 2010, Singh said that song was repetitive and lacked "variations," Ghose wrote in The Quietus.) After years in obscurity, Synthesizing: Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat was unearthed in 2002, and Singh finally received the fame and recognition that eluded him decades ago: He toured both sides of the Atlantic – his debut concert came in 2012 in Antwerp, Belgium – performing his now-classic LP, which was subsequently reissued. Singh also toured briefly with Das Racist's Heems. At the time of his death, Singh was preparing for another concert in London and was also working on an album of world folk music. "I might try my version of folk songs of the world, from Nairobi. Indian folk songs as well, of course," Singh told Rolling Stone India in 2013. "I won't leave the disco beat, because people like to dance, no?" Related 50 Most Important People in EDM Frankie Knuckles: 5 Defining Tracks The Legacy of Larry Levan and the Paradise Garage

Lindsay Ell recently returned from touring Europe with Luke Bryan, and she credits that experience with helping her reach a new level of artistry. "Luke is an incredible performer, but then you get to meet the guy behind the music, and he's just a great human being," she tells Rolling Stone Country, after playing New York City's FarmBorough Festival in late June. "Getting into the studio, I found this whole new wave of inspiration. I'm falling into what I want to say as an artist, which is a huge thing." See Our Best Onstage and Backstage FarmBorough Photos That's not easy for anyone, but it may be especially challenging for Ell, simply because she's so versatile. "I feel like I've listened to so many different kinds of music, and I've played so many different kinds of music," she explains. "Shania Twain was my idol growing up." As a teenager, she met Randy Bachman, who founded the Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive. "He brought me down a blues-jazz-rock path for a little while," Ell remembers, "which as a guitar player I'm so thankful for. It's given me chops I never would have. It's also chaos for a songwriting musician." On top of that, she had to navigate her way within the Nashville system, rarely an easy task. She describes working with a label as "a great thing, because you get so many people being like, 'How should we do this?' It's also a frustrating thing as an artist — you're really trying to find that thing." Ell's only released a handful of songs to date, but she now knows how to describe what that "thing" is: "a little John Mayer, a little Keith Urban, a little Sheryl Crow, all in a country song." She feels like her most recent single, "Shut Me Up," is the closest she's come to that ideal balance. The track is gleefully vindictive — Ell catches her lover cheating on her, and she's determined to make sure he doesn't hear the end of it. "I'm gonna be a megaphone, telling everyone how you did me wrong," she sings. "The only switch I've got is on." In an amusing twist, Ell lists all the people she plans to inform about this infidelity: the other woman, of course, but also the cheater's mom, the preacher, the newspapers and now the audience at every one of her shows. "Shut Me Up" is full of volatile guitar playing, which provides Ell with an opportunity to display those impressive chops she's built over the years. She even gives weekly guitar lessons on Periscope in an effort to help the next generation. Ell is acutely aware that female lead-guitar players are in short supply in every genre, but they're especially scarce in country. "I remember who inspired me when I was growing up: Bonnie Raitt, Jennifer Batten, Susan Tedeschi," she says. "I definitely want to lead that movement and that wave for female guitar players."
