Después de su single de debut "baby i love your way/to be with you",del cual hablamos cuando comenzabamos a bloguear, la banda sueca lanza un nuevo sencillo:

»little things (that tear us apart)«

"Don’t you know, that it’s the crazy little things that always tear
us apart? Du-du-du-du-du-du-du-du”. Like Bob Dylan on a Surpremes
diet Irene’s very own Bobby stumbles ecstaticly over the words with
an euphoria that makes you wonder if the man is overwhelmingly happy
or totally miserable. 1:55 minutes of musical history.

La serie Prison Break llega a España


Prison Break es una serie de televisión estadounidense creada por Paul Scheuring transmitida por la FOX. Se estrenó en Estados Unidos el 29 de agosto de 2005 y consta de 22 episodios. Su segunda temporada fue estrenada el 21 de Agosto de 2006 en Estados Unidos. En Latinoamérica solo se han emitido los primeros 13 episodios, el resto de la primera temporada será emitida a partir del 21 de Agosto de 2006. En España, la serie comenzará a emitirse en Fox el próximo 4 de septiembre y en La Sexta unas semanas más tarde. -wikipedia-

Sus protanistas principales son los dos hermanos, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) y Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller).
En la segunda temporada habrá nuevos personajes, entre los que destaco (aunque aun no lo he visto) al agente Alex Mahone,interpretado por William Fichtner. Al cual puedes ver en Invasión, emitida en TeleMadrid. No he seguido mucho la serie, pero tiene muy buena pinta, aunque creo que por lo que visto, es una historia que ya se ha visto en películas y telefilms. Es la historia de un pueblo en el que después de un extraño suceso, las gentes van cambiando y todo parece producirse en el lago de la zona, donde los humanos son llevados para ser cambiados por seres idénticos a ellos que salen del agua. Aunque esta última parte no he llegado a verla, asi que no lo sé seguro. De todos modos Fichtner interpretando al sheriff está soberbio, ese aire de saber lo que pase, intentar controlarlo y que sea como él dice. Pero por otro lado, parece como si a él no le hubiera sucedido la transformación y si a su mujer. Sólo he visto unos 4 capítulos, asi que puede que esté dando palos de ciego. Pero su presencia impone, asi que tengo muchas ganas de ver su papel en Prison Break, haciendo frente a Michael Scofield.

Sin ánimo de salirme del tema musical que ocupa la mayor parte del blog. Podríamos destacar como canción Teardrop de Massive Attack, tema que últimamente ha sonado en todas las series que veo. Aunque el puntazo de Prison Break es "Eres tú" de Mocedades. Aunque esto se aprecia y tiene su gracia viendo la versión original. Siempre he defendido el doblaje español, siempre se ha dicho y considero que es uno de los mejores. Muchas veces se le hace un favor a los actores. Viendo el trailer de Alatriste, la voz de Viggo se me pierde un poco, y si sigo el hilo es por los subtitulos, sino, ni me entero de que él habla. Al ver la película supongo que se me hará el oído y podré enterarme bien. Me gusta mucho Mortensen como actor, así que espero que mis temores se desvanezcan al ver la película. Esto me lleva a algo que ayer no me percaté. Pero mientras la película de Manolete protagonizada por Adrian Brody y Penelope Cruz está rodada en inglés. Alatriste no lo está, asi que supongo que su distribución en los paises de habla inglesa se hará con subtítulos en inglés. El hecho de que no sea hablada en inglés puede hacer que la vean menos. Pero bueno eso ya es algo que se verá, y tampoco a mi me va la vida en ello,jeje.
Me voy por las ramas... siguiendo con lo del doblaje. Mientras que Lost (aqui Perdidos) la puedo ver en ambos idiomas, pues primero la vi en español y luego en inglés. Cuando algo lo veo en versión original luego me cuesta mucho verlo doblado. No poder disfrutar de la voz de Wentworth, y de las personas de la cárcel, como Abruzzi y el resto, pues... Además esos momentos en los que alguno soltaba algo en castellano, o mismamente el momentazo (jeje) "Eres tú" de Mocedades no será lo mismo.
----------------------

Podéis leer la sinopsis y quienes son los personajes en la página de Wikipedia. En la de imdb ya avanzan los de la segunda, y sería liaros o chafaros la primera, y merece muy mucho.

Contar aqui de qué va, no lo haré. Los anuncios de series en la televisión, a veces dan más información de que la que debieran. Aunque en otros casos dan la necesaria. En mi opinión sobre esta serie, hay verla y punto. Si no sabes muy bien de que va, al principio andas algo confusa, pero luego cuando sabes de las intenciones del protagonista, todo se torna emocionante y desafiante. Y podría decir que luego este propósito tal , por lo que dice el lema de la 2ª temporada. Pero sin ver la 1ª, para qué decir nada más.

Disfrútenla.

Para algunos en mejor que Lost (Perdidos), juzga por ti mismo. Para mi cada una tiene su punto de interés.

Tendremos:
-Perdidos en la Primera. De Mujeres Desesperadas ya han emitido las 2 primeras temporadas.
-Los 4400 en Antena3. Donde ahora por fin podemos ver la 5ª temporada de 24.
-Prison Break en la Sexta.
-En Cuatro podemos ver Anatomía de Grey, Alias, ya vimos las 2 temporadas de House.

etc.

El capitán Alatriste

Teniamos que ponerlo, no sólo porque este viernes se estrena por fin, después de ver en Telecinco esa maravillosa cortinilla con Viggo tirando el sombrero con un estilazo :) Aunque siempre quedará que supere el libro, aunque Arturo Pérez-Reverte le haya dado el visto bueno, siempre los seguidores de sus aventuras tendrán mucho que decir. Por lo que he leido ojeando un par de videos en Youtube, hay personajes que no aparecerán, para darle a Alastriste un aire más de héroe que de mujeriego, como según parece también pasara con Braveheart. El trailer que pongo está es la versión inglesa aunque los diálogos son los originales. A ver que tal Viggo hablando castellano, lo digo porque tendrá que haber pulido su acento, para que no parezca argentino.Me apetece que tenga éxito no sólo nacional sino también en las taquillas americanas.
Además de Mortensen, están Elena Anaya, Eduardo Noriega, y más.

El perfume TRAILER

Sé que este blog es sobre música ,pero también de vez en cuando me apetece poner algo sobre cine, otra de mis pasiones, previa a la musical.
Después del verano sin mucho de peso que ver, pronto llegarán interesantes propuestas, como Alatriste con Viggo Mortensen, o El perfume también basada en un libro. El inicio del trailer me gusta, pero no me quiero hacer demasiadas ilusiones, porque siempre es difícil superar a la obra escrita, pero por lo menos el actor parece que se busco con cuidado. Ya veremos el resultado.

Trailer:

The science of sleep TRAILER

Science of Sleep official site

Una de las películas más esperadas por algunos, es The Science of Sleep, escrita y dirigida por Michel Gondry, afamado director de videoclips para Björk, Massive Attack...
Los actorres protagonistas de la película son Gael Garcia Bernal en el papel de Stéphane Miroux y Charlotte Gainsbourg en el de Stéphanie. Sin duda alguna en estos meses que vienen, Charlotte Gainsbourg va a estar en todos los puntos de mira (por sus papeles en la gran pantalla) y escucha (por la inminente salida de su nuevo trabajo -post sobre ello-.

Artistas similares:
(Smog), Lou Barlow, Elliot Smith, Tram, Low

Sobre la banda por MusicDownload:

Intimately lo-fi with a touch of the dramatic, the Cairo Gang delivers acoustic lullabies for whimsical romantics and the unfavorably doomed. This is the perfect soft rock to soothe your rock 'n' roll hang-overs.

The Cairo Gang are 6am soothe-core for the puzzled, punch drunks of the world. Picking up smack dab where Elliot Smith left off with true lemon drop tunes for the down trodden. Groovy and ghostly imprints that leave one feeling completely defeated yet wide-eyed enough to paint a few self-portraits without a single cringe. RocknRoll for when you want to snuggle up with the dictionary, discovering new terms to use in explaining why you'd abruptly shaved off your Mohawk, bought some old suits and grew an intense obsession with J.D. Salinger.

The Cairo Gang's self-titled debut full length, set for release this summer, features a track by track blueprint, illustrating each and every side of the emotional spectrum. A musical declaration uniting the romanticists with the doomsayers for a round of high fives and hand shakes. The ballad "Mother Earth" is acoustically organic, delivering the listener an early Neil Young feel with bewitching flutes and bongos. The hardboiled, lo-fi rock of "So it Goes" provides a balanced state with just the right amount of tinny treble boost and sleepytime vocals to keep its cool. "Bones in the Ground" flutters like a funnel cloud with an agenda, sweetening every pot in its path. As a whole, the album coasts above the clouds, swooping down to earth for the occasional cameo appearance.

Over the course of recent years, The Cairo Gang has been a lingering passion for Emmett Kelly, a stimulated singer/songwriter with an impressive list of musicians in his rolodex. Performing with a back up band or solo, Kelly always brings a freshened thrill to the world of quiet rock music. Originating in Los Angeles, he bounced around the globe for quite some time, eventually landing in Chicago, a wind-ridden city suitable for The Cairo Gang's drafty texture. After mastering countless instruments, Kelly decided to put his skills to work and record some tunes that have been afloat in his headspace. And thank the heavens he did, because this album perfectly tweaks the butterflies in all of our stomachs. The Cairo Gang …deep, soft rock for tobacco tinged hearts.

Sobre 27 -recogido en su MySpace-:
Boston, Massachusetts, USA based trio 27 fuses sample loops, live instruments and sultry vocals to create emotive pop songs with a broad range of dynamics and textures. The music moves easily from gently sparse to lushly full, revolving around the alluring and captivating vocals. Some tracks ignite a tripped-out vibe with electronic loops and infectious rhythms, while other songs explore a more visceral rock approach with sweet melodic hooks. 27 has been compared to PJ Harvey, Portishead, Aimee Mann, Fiona Apple, Fleetwood Mac, and Neil Young.

Lo nuevo de White Town



Para muchos que asi de buenas a primeras no caigais quien es White Town, bastaria con que escuchárais "Your woman", canción de hace tiempo, que aqui en España tuvo muy buena acogida, y que además tuvo su "versión" en castellano de la mano del componente masculino de Amistades Peligrosas.




Pues después de 6 años de silencio, Jyoti Mishra vuelve a la escena musical con un nuevo trabajo que saldrá con Nintwave Records. De momento tenemos el sencillo llamado "A new surprise"

El cual puedes adquirir en iTunes, pinchando en la foto:



o puedes escuchar y tenerla gracias a Stereogum.

Después de leer varios comentarios en contra de MySpace, leo que a Jyoti tampoco le gusta, sus razones en
su blog. Según parece el problema está con el jefazo de MySpace, tengo que echarle una lectura a ver que cuenta el artículo que menciona.

The Grates - Gravity Won't Get You High (2006)

The Grates are two girls and a boy: John plays guitar, Alan thumps away at her kit, Patience sings, squeals, yelps and yells. None of them every really aspired to be in a proper band, but they all enjoyed performing from a young age and met during after school theatre classes at Brisbane High School (in Australia). Theirs is the classic drama geek backstory: while the other kids were outside doing something sporty, this threesome bonded indoors over their love of things a little more tweeunderground music, off--off Broadway theatre and outlandish animal drawings. Then came the duet. One night at a local bar, John and Patience picked up microphones and discovered, well, a whole new world. -TheBooth-

As tall as lions-ESCUCHA en The Booth

Ya hemos hablado de esta banda en este post,esta semana puedes escuchar el disco enterito en TheBooth.



The sophmore self titled release from Long Island, New Yorks As Tall As Lions has a British influenced contemporary indie rock sound and draws from many different musical influences dating back over three decades. Think Sunny Day Real Estate meets Elbow or Doves meet The Police. The band recorded the album with Steven Haigler (Brand New, Fuel, Quicksand).

As Tall As Lions is Daniel Nigro (Vocals/Guitar/Piano), Saen Fitzgerald (Guitar) Cliff Sarcona (Drums) and Julio Tavarez (Bass/Vocals). It seems that Long Islands forever-burgeoning indie-rock scene has produced yet another act with prospects for a national spotlight. Listen up and see for yourself.

As Tall As Lions comes out August 8 on Triple Crown/East West.

You can also catch the band on a brief CD-release tour beginning Aug. 9 with The Dear Hunter, The Secret Handshake and Cassino.

Asi que, me tomare un descanso del blog hasta que tenga tiempo para arreglar el problema. Me da rabia, mas que nada porque sin poder navegar, no podré ver las ultimas adds del MySpace, y enterarme de los ultimos lanzamientos. Pero bueno me quedara por contar lo que suena en el player y el resto de bandas que aun tenia pendiente.
Podeis dejar comentarios o como algunos han hecho, dar a conocer vuestra musica.

Maybe there's a virus in my computer, so when I solve it, I'll come back.
I hope to be here in the world of internet soon to know about new stuff by Kasabian, Evanescence, The killers, .... and about your music, if you want to let us know about your stuff, leave a comment and the URL of your website. It'll be welcome.

Saludos a los cajatonteros, a mis amig@s que se pasan por aqui, a si es que los hay de supernovapop, y a todo el que se pasa o ha pasado o pasará por aqui.

Thanks for reading this blog, see u soon again (I hope so)

Charlotte Gainsbourg



Pop
Paris, France

Web
MySpace

Bio en su MySpace:
Charlotte Gainsbourg - one of the greatest stars of modern French cinema - resumes her recording career with the release of 5:55, an album created in collaboration with such luminaries as Jarvis Cocker, the French duo Air and The Divine Comedys Neil Hannon. The album is released by Because Music on Monday 28th August.

5:55 was recorded in Paris and produced by Nigel Godrich, the acclaimed English producer whose previous credits include work with Radiohead, Beck, Travis, REM and Paul McCartney.

Airs Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel wrote and played the music on the album, with Jarvis Cocker, Neil Hannon and Charlotte Gainsbourg contributing lyrics. David Campbell, the esteemed Canadian composer, was responsible for the string arrangements the father of Beck, Campbell has previously worked with his son as well as such artists as Elton John, Leonard Cohen and Michael Jackson.

The albums line-up was completed with the great Nigerian drummer Tony Allen, revered for his work with Fela Kuti and recently described by Brian Eno as the greatest musician on the planet.

Gainsbourgs first album Charlotte For Ever, a collection of songs written by her father, the legendary French artist Serge Gainsbourg, was recorded when she was 13 years old. Her most recent music projects have included the spoken intro to Madonnas 2001 hit, What It Feels Like For A Girl and backing vocals for Badly Drawn Boys Have You Fed the Fish? album.

Charlotte Gainsbourg, whose mother is the English actress Jane Birkin, has appeared in some 30 films including director Alejandro González Iñárritus Oscar-nominated 21 Grams and the just released Lemming. She also stars in director Michel Gondrys much anticipated The Science of Sleep, due for release this autumn.

Lily Allen

Con tan solo 21 años se ha convertido en una de las últimas sensaciones del momento. Ella solita colgando sus canciones en el MySpace, consiguió un gran número de fans y fichar por una discográfica. Lo cual nos lleva a "Alright, still" su debut,considerado por muchos como uno de los mejores discos hasta el momento del 2006.

From Amazon.co.uk
Being, as she is, the daughter of prominent British actor Keith Allen, the cynics could easily dismiss the rise of Lily Allen as an act of backroom nepotism, a talent-free starlet helped to the stage by the right connections. But one listen to her debut album Alright, Still dispels any doubts about young Ms. Allen's star quality. Possessed of a feisty wit and taste for urban storytelling that should see her compared to Mike "The Streets" Skinner, these 11 tracks of sunshine-friendly reggae pop cover topics including frustrating potential closing-time suitors ("Knock 'Em Out"), being happy when your ex is having a bad time ("Smile"), and having a little brother who likes a bit of a smoke--and not just of the tobacco variety ("Alfie"). Wisely, however, Allen doesn't let the grittiness of the subject matter tarnish the golden pop suss of the songs, a suite of gleaming productions by names including Mark Ronson and Gwen Stefani collaborator Greg Kurstin that take inspiration from the lighter end of reggae and vintage rocksteady. Doubtless some corners of the press will pillory her as a poor role model, but there's an engaging honesty to the likes of "LDN"--a love song to a city filled with teenage muggers, pimps, and crack whores, narrated by someone who's cycling because "the filth took away my license." Like father, like daughter. --Louis Pattison

Product Description (Amazon.com)
Debut album by this critically adored British female pop vocalist. 11 tracks including the single 'Smile'. It's been a whirlwind couple of months for Lily Allen. After signing a low key deal with Regal, late last year, no one could have predicted how quickly she'd make an impression on the nation. Lily, like many artists, started posting tracks on her Myspace site in November 2005, so she could gauge what people thought. The response has been phenomenal. Listens on her Myspace site now are staggering, over 2 million and rising. The support from the press, radio and TV has been fantastic. She is already a 'red top' favorite with her honesty and sharp tongue, but also has fans across the digital world and within cult publications. Regal. 2006.

PROTOTYPES is a french band located in Paris. Created in 2003 by both members of BOSCO (S. Bodin et F. Marché) and singer/performer BUBBLE STAR (I. Le Doussal), PROTOTYPES makes a joyful and hybrid music, sexily sung in French, mixing altogether the many influences of the band : from electro-pop, 60s rythms, folky guitars and sometimes a punk crunch to add to the equation!

Welcome to the party.

Tobias Fröberg

Poco despues de hablar de Bobby Baby tuve como peticion en el MySpace a Tobias Fröberg. Es considerado como la gran promesa de Suecia. Y sin saberlo, disfrutabamos antes de saber de él, de una de sus canciones en un spot de una cámara, rodado en Barcelona. Su segundo trabajo "Somewhere in the city" saldrá pronto, puedes escuchar parte en su MySpace. Y creo, pero de momento no pone nada en la web de la discográfica, saldrá aqui con Sinnamon.

NEWS! TOBIAS FROBERG SIGNS TO POPTONES RECORDS! Swedish artist Tobias Froberg has signed his new album "Somewhere In The City" to the UK label Poptones Records, run by the legendary music guru Alan McGee, the man who discovered and signed Oasis and Primal Scream amongst others and put The Hives career on track by signing them to Poptones. The agreement was made via Tobias's label Fire Egg Recordings and is for the UK, France, Holland, Belgium, Spain and Portugal.
Alan McGee said last week: "He's the next Scandinavian Superstar".
Tobias's track "When the night turns cold" from the new album is already being used in the pan-European TV ad for Panasonic Lumix cameras.
Tobias is already signed via Fire Egg to Scandinavian indie Playground for Scandinavia and Baltic states and to Cheap Lullaby for the US, where the track has already been played last week by influential Radio station WXPN.

---

The first album, For Elisabeth Wherever She Is was produced, played, arranged and basically everything by Tobias Froberg & Linus Larsson. It was released in 2004, and was nominated for album of the year at the swedish indie grammies.
Now, in 2006, Tobias and Linus have finished their second one, called "Somewhere in the city". As before, Tobias and Linus play every instrument, but this time theyve got company from a couple of good friends. Ane Brun sings the duet "Love and misery", which also can be heard on Anes beautiful album, Duets (www.anebrun.com). Teitur (www.teitur.com) sings background vocals and plays piano on a song titled For Elisabeth wherever you are (a sequal to the huge number of Elisabeth-songs from the first album). Teitur and Tobias have co-written the title-track, Somewhere in the city. Swedish fella Existensminimum (Magnus Henriksson) plays bongos on the opening track, When the night turns cold.

An amazing transformation has happened with the Mars Patrol. They´ve got from an acoustic duo to an electric four piece. They were great as an acoustic band but going electric will be the making of this band. I can really see this band being signed in the not too distant future. This mini album has some great songs on it including the opening number ´Are You With Me?´. Just listen to the other numbers such as ´The Kiss Goodnight´, ´Can I Have You?´ and ´Crying Your Heart Out´. Going electric has certainly added something to Davina Divine´s voice - her voice is certainly pleasant to listen to and she delivers her words with so much passion. Ross Nelson, Stephen Parker and Stuart Spence certainly compliment Davina´s voice. This Pop/Rock outfit have been the best thing I´ve heard in a long time coming out of Scotland. Maybe these are the new Cranberries? Only time will tell! 10/10



OCEAN VIEW PRESS.com (Boston, MA)
The Mars Patrol are from Edinburgh, Scotland. The Mars Patrol are a female fronted rock band. The Mars Patrol have just released their new CD and The Mars Patrol have hit a home run with it. Clocking in at 21 minutes and 34 seconds, this 7-song e.p. kicks into high gear from the beginning. With their can't-miss formula of smooth as ice production and Davina Divine's sexy singing style, it's easy to see why this Scottish quartet has a rather impressive following, not just in their homeland, but worldwide. Along with Davina Divine, the band is rounded out by guitarist Ross Nelson (drums on the e.p.), bassist Stephen Parker and drummer Stuart Spence.

"Are You With Me" opens up with the title track followed by Turn It Around andThe Kiss Goodnight. The album slows down with Crying Your Heart Out and I Still Want You. Not in quality, but rather in terms of tempo. As Divina sings "I still want you to know me/ I still want you to hold me", you can feel the convincing emotion and desperation in her voice. The pace speeds up once again with Can I Have You and the final track One Man's Greed.

This album, as well as the band, are examples of how more artists should approach their fanbase. Straight forward Pop/Rock with no over indulgance on their part. In my opinion, this is the "8 ball corner pocket" of CD's and anyone who enjoys the kind of music that you continually replay, then this is definitely the CD for you. Become a fan today!

Love Love Love (Love Love) (lyrics)
Have I
ever told you before
I think you're beautiful when
you're sleeping?
I have faith you watch me in
my slumber, too.
If I'm
all that you're looking for,
tell me,
why is there a river streaming
down your face?
Sometimes makes me wonder
all about your
love.

After some time
it's something i find true. Love's
not a grave, it won't decay
on you.
Too many days I was afraid
of love.

What
if nothing is just that and
suffering's the only thing we're good
at?
Dreaming, picture that
a whole world in a slumber.
But don't get
too attatched to the living,
even every single memory's
fleeting.
That's a fact, being torn
asunder.
But to my suprise, no reason
why, one day i woke
up and realized.

Give it to me,
love. I'll keep you in my focus
with love and affection.


Ghosts of York (lyrics)
I know
we're all souls just
trying to connect with
someone, but we're all
left searching on our own.

Tell me that you could hear it,
three taps under the floorboard.
Don't say i'm losing it,
maybe you're deaf.
Could have sworn
that I locked
all these windows fairly tight.
Shut the door,
hear a knock.
She starts turning off the lights.

And from the corner of my eye
I saw you dressed all in white,
I saw you pass right by.
But maybe I had too much wine.
I hope you come back tonite,
you never said good-bye.

Tell me that you could see it,
a ghost who's skin is porcelain.
Don't say i'm losing it,
maybe you're blind.
Saw her walk
thru a wall,
turn her head and look to me.
In a York hotel hall
I am falling to my knees.

Softly, as your dress
flows, you say that you're alone.
But I know I can't leave you
lonely and on
your own.

Lo que cuentan ellos en su MySpace:
So how do 4 Irish boys end up playing rock n' roll in Los Angeles, preparing to cut their first long-player on Sunset Blvd, far from the dirty streets of Dublin? We can tell you it's a long and winding road that brought us here. 4 devils in the city of angels. The Irish have a history with the Americans, and we want to be part of that history. Hailing from Dublin city, we are a 4 piece rock 'n roll band. We have our own thing going on, something special. Unique, fresh, exciting. Classic in a sense. But more. College friends Nick and Alan met Bjorn, and later his brother Simon, in Cardiff, and what started as a drunken jam ended up here, 3 years later. It's only apt that we took our name from a favoured watering hole, the La Rocca cocktail bar, you'll understand why once you meet us.

In mid-2005 we signed our first record deal with Dangerbird Records, situated in the heart of happening Silverlake. Chrysalis Publishing USA became our close friends this year too, so it is only right that we should pack our duffle bags and set up camp in the USA. We've just recorded an album with Mr. Tony Hoffer (Beck, Air, Supergrass, Belle & Sebastian) and can't wait to be travelling the world playing it to people this year. We look forward to giving you something original and inspiring when we meet.

Johnny Marr se convierte en miembro de la banda norteamericana

Johnny Marr e Isaac Brock estuvieron trabajando en las nuevas composiciones que pasarían a formar parte de la próxima entrega de Modest Mouse.
Brock comentó a Rolling Stone que el que fuera miembro de los Smiths se incorporará también a la próxima gira del grupo.Aún no hay fecha de lanzamiento para la continuación de Good News For People Who Love Bad News (04), cuyo título provisional es We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank.-Muzikalia

Johnny Marr Joins Modest Mouse
by Staff 08.04.2006

For the first time in over 15 years seminial British guitarist Johnny Marr is now a full-time member of a band he didn't form. According to a recent Rolling Stone interview with Modest Mouse singer Isaac Brock, Marr is now "not pretty much. He's a full blown member of the band [Modest Mouse]. It's really fuckin' nice."
Previously it had been reported that Marr was merely involved in the recording of the album, however this is the first confirmation that he will be touring with the band as well.
"He made a cautious commitment to write and record with us, and then the tighter we got, he was like, 'okay, let's tour too,", Brock said.
The Seattle outfit's forthcoming album We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank was recorded in Mississippi and produced by Dennis Heering (Good News For People Who Love Bad News), it's due in stores this fall.
It is not clear what this will mean for Marr's 2nd Healers album which he is said to have been currently recording. -FilterMagazine-

On its self-titled 2002 debut, OK Go nailed the two things every decent power-pop band needs--deadly looks and deadly hooks--to deliver the knock-out hit "Get Over It." Its follow up, produced by Tore Johansson (Franz Ferdinand, the Cardigans) and recorded in Malmöö, Sweden, offers more of the same. Much more. The Chicago quartet can't seem to move through its record collection fast enough, piling on the Beach Boys harmonies, Cars synthesizer squelches and Queen-inspired fanfare on breakneck songs like "Here It Goes Again" and "Crash The Party." Without any pauses for breath or quiet contemplation, it's frankly almost too much to take in one sitting. Then again, it can't be easy trying to cram the entire history of pop in just under an hour. --Aidin Vaziri

Gerald Starkie "Drawbridge"

Lo hemos descubierto gracias a Bauer (banda mencionada en este blog un par de veces)

A great singer/Songwriter......very under rated...Check out his debut solo album...-Bauer-


Alternative / Indie / Other

United Kingdom

Biografia recogida en su MySpace:

Gerard Starkie is one of the finest singers in England. That might sound like pure rhetoric but the evidence has long been evident from the two magnificent albums that Starkie recorded with his former band, Witness. Those records Before the Calm in 1999 and Under a Sun in 2001 received the most extraordinary critical applause, some of which was especially reserved for Starkies own performances. The Times newspaper, for instance, claimed that Starkies vocals are imbued with that nebulous quality of soul fragile, sensitive and exuding a dignified stoicism doubtless born of experience while Q magazines review of Under a Sun stated that almost overburdened by yearning melodies, chief Witness Gerard Starkie sings about lifes travails in aching tones reminiscent of REMs Michael Stipe. Witness were always a band that was meant to be. Even back in 1999 Uncut magazine was claiming that this time next year Witness will be a leading contender for best album of the year. Frustratingly, things didnt work out that way. Formed in Wigan during April 1997, the band moved to Bristol following the release of Before the Calm three years later. In addition to formidable reviews, the album also found favour with the public on the back of a rising live reputation for the band, Before the Calm made the UK charts in the summer of 1999. It was after the release of the second Witness album, however, that the band quit Island Records. Despite phenomenal reviews, the album stubbornly refused to realise its heightened commercial expectations. By the start of 2004 the band decided on a different direction, with Gerard Starkie now working as a solo artist. The band didn't split acrimoniously and there were no bust ups. Dylan Keeton (bass) is still heavily involved in what I'm doing now. Going solo doesn't mean I'll be playing with a bass drum strapped to my back and cymbals on my knees, says Starkie. The new Gerard Starkie will be publicly unveiled with a series of live gigs in the near future. He has also been working on a set of new songs that have recently been mastered and will be released very soon. Witness used to work democratically. It's a much more single-minded process now. Obviously that's going to have an effect, he says. I've also been working songs on a computer rather than just an acoustic guitar and again, that alters the flavour but, at the end of the day, it's still me writing the songs, so don't expect a hip hop album.

Sebastien Schuller


Indie

Philadelphia; Paris, France

Biografia recogida en su Web :
Sébastien Schuller is incontestably an artist who takes you by surprise.
Sébastien Schuller is a classically trained percussionist who became an accomplished and eclectic multi-instrumentalist over the years, composing and interpreting his own work, backed by a few hand picked friends, including Paul Hanford (Brothers in Sound, Sancho). A thirtysomething from Les Yvelines in the Parisian suburbs, Sébastien Schuller thrives on enhancing sounds of acoustic and natural resonance with touches of electronica. Throughout the album, which balances tantric instrumentals with tinges of pop you can almost dance to, a thread of tortuous and contrasting emotions is unravelled. The mood is predominantly melancholic, but, as in life, there is a constant undercurrent of hope.
Dreams can sometimes become reality, even though ghosts of the past inevitably haunt the present.
The more you listen to "Happiness", the further you will be drawn into its playful secrets : the vocals tease the listener with a game of hide and seek, first concealing themselves behind the filters of machines, then suddenly being revealed, raw and bare, before retreating again to let the atmospheric music speak for itself.
In short, there is one theme which perseveres throughout the album which is as rich as it is diverse: that of a love for the sounds and melodies so strong it's almost tangible.

Or maybe it is just the constant strive for perfectionism and the pursuit of happiness which is a never-ending quest.

Sébastien juste made the soundtrack for the movie Un jour d'été, watch the trailer here. The movie won the Best European Movie award from Avignon-New-York festival .
