Story One

Últimamente nos tomamos el blog con más calma. La verdad es que hay mucho que contar, pero como también hay mucho que leer y escuchar... Hoy tampoco pensaba pasarme por aqui, pero echando una ojeada a los boletines del MySpace, salió esta banda. También he de decir que, a pesar de ojear con frecuencia este sitio (aunque últimamente no con tanta frecuencia) pues no me habia enterado de que The teenagers eran la última sensación dado a conocer al igual que Lily Allen, a través de esta plataforma.

Left to right: Mike, Barny, Tom and G

Nottingham, United Kingdom




Tom Evans - Vocals/Violin
Barny Barratt - Guitar
Gerald Youna - Bass & Guitar
Mike Woolf - Drums.

Su trabajo se llama "Disposable" y te lo puedes descargar gratuito en su web.

-Saving Grace



Given the anonymity of the internet and Myspace, many people use it as a way of conveying feelings and messages they can not relay to their close friends and relatives. It is often used as a way of reaching out and calling for help. Whether it be posting blogs about your thoughts, or writing songs to share with others, or even striking up a freindship with someone on the otherside of the World. This is how Story One came across Grace. Originally contacting the band as a fan, they quickly built up a friendship and spoke almost daily. After speaking for a number of weeks it became apparent that Grace was suffering from depression, and her life was spiralling out of control. She was clearly crying out for help, and the band tried their best to help her. After spending a great deal of time talking to Grace and talking through her problems they felt that she was making her comeback from her depression. However, the next time thay tried to speak to her Grace's profile had been deleted and they couldn't get hold of her at all. They have trawled the internet and contacted Myspace directly trying to get hold of her. If Grace sounds like someone you know, or is infact you please get in contact with the band. 'Saving Grace' has been written about Grace, and how she has touched the band. The actress in our video is not Grace, Grace please get in contact.

Life is beautiful

by Vega4

life is beautiful
we love until we die

when you run into my arms
we steal a perfect moment
Let the monsters see you smile
let them see you smile
and do i hold you too tightly
when will the hurt kick in

life is beautiful
but it's complicated
we barely make it
we don't need to understand
there are miracles

your life is beautiful
our hearts they beat and break
when you run away from harm
will you run back into my arms
like you did when you were young
will you come back to me
and i will hold you tightly
when the hurting kicks in

life is beautiful
but it's complicated
we barely make it
we don't need to understand
there are miracles

stand where you are
we let all these moments pass us by

it's amazing where i'm standing
there's a lot left we can give

this is ours just for a moment
there's a lot left we can give

it's amazing where i'm standing
there's a lot left we can give

this is ours just for a moment
there's a lot left we can give

120 Days

Location: Oslo, Norway
Genre: Electro / Rock / Experimental
Similar Artists: The Stills, Suicide, Wilderness, The Cure


ADNE MEISFJORD - Guitar, Keyboard and Vocals
ARNE KVALVIK - Keyboards, Electronic Drums

Info recogida en ViceRecords y Download.com :

This Oslo outfit's absorbing material could easily find a home in the electro-ambient realm, what with its gleaming multitracked drones and valiant use of vintage keyboards. But the propulsive beats smack of wider ambitions: listen with headphones, sure, but move those feet.

120 Days had its first rehearsal autumn 2001 in their small hometown, Kristiansund, on the northwest coast of Norway. The band consisted of the four 19 year old friends Jonas Dahl, Arne Kvalvik, Kjetil Ovesen and Adne Meisfjord. They called themselves The Beautiful People.

Not much could happen in Kristiansund, where the bars are full of cover bands if they played music at all. They would have to move to Oslo to on the map. Yet with Oslo being recently rated the most expensive city on earth, they knew they would be able to afford a place to live. So they found the perfect solution: they bought a used motor home, drove to Oslo, parked it in the street, and lived in it and played in it for a year.

In these intense months the only things they did was rehearse. But junkies constantly trying to break in got to be too much. With the help of earnings from various jobs, they finally left the motor home. By this time the 120 Days sound was created.

It's a sound heralding a new dawn of electronic rock: built by vintage and discarded keyboards, colored by drones and noise, powered by guitars, and propelled, in lieu of a drummer, by a motorik beat synched with Kraftwerk and NEU! Other touchstones and inspirations include Suicide, Stereolab, Spaceman 3, Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music, Steve Reich's Four Organs, Primal Scream's XTRMNTR, The Stooges, New Order and Harmonia. The songs describe the desolation of cold, dark, long Oslo nights spent searching for escape, a hand to hold, or one last fix.

Early in 2004 the band released their critically acclaimed 3-song EP titled Sedated Times on the small Oslo label Public Demand Records. Late in 2004 they released their second EP, 5 tracks that caused quite a stir in Norway. And after the bands gig at By:Larm in Norway (the Norwegian equivalent to South By Southwest) the band sent shockwaves through a lot of industry people, and the gig resulted in the band being booked to both the Reading and Leeds Festivals in England and the SONAR Festival in Barcelona. Very soon the band had found a home with the great label Smalltown Supersound (Jaga Jazzist, Lindstrom, Kim Hiorthoy) for Norway, and with VICE Records in North America. With their signing to VICE they become the first Norwegian band ever to be signed directly to a US label.

Their self-titled debut album was produced by the band themselves and recorded in Oslo's Crystal Canyon studios in January and February 2006. The album was mixed by Jogen Traen and the band in Duper Studio, Bergen, in April 2006.

Sarah Blasko

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia



Sobre el ultimo disco y ella recogido en su web:

Recording in April 2006, Sarah set to task bringing to life a brand new set of songs she only began working on at the beginning of the year. In a strange twist of fate, Blasko headed straight from her performance of the Crowded House flagship number, "Don't Dream It's Over", at the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony, to Neil Finn's own Roundhead Studios, in Auckland, New Zealand.

Working again with loyal accomplice, Robert F Cranny, the pair brought in the talent and experience of Jim Moginie to assist with the production of the recordings. Blasko first encountered Moginie personally when collaborating with him on her version of "Flame Trees", although he is better known to many as a songwriter & multi-instrumentalist with legendary Australian band, Midnight Oil.

Complementing the freshness of these new compositions, Sarah took a four-piece band into the studio - a converted former ballroom - where the twelve new tracks were recorded live in the spacious and ornate surrounds by engineer Paul McKercher.

Finally, the project was mixed by Victor Van Vugt, an ex-pat Melbournian who has a long association with icons of the Australian music world, Nick Cave and Dave Graney.

Thematically, the album is an exploration of fatalism. Using the unpredictable ebbs and flows of the sea as her metaphor, Blasko looks at fate with a learned reverence, but with the maturity to set sail in spite of uncertainty, and the courage to use her own former shipwrecks as seamarks.

Sarah Blasko spent her youth in the suburbs of Sydney, in a family whose journeys of faith steered her through numerous religious denominations. Through the church, school and her Father’s oddball record collection, she was introduced to music quite accidentally, and has no formal training to speak of.

Having ventured out into the bright lights of Hollywood to record her last album, Sarah has spent two years touring the world only to find that Australia has a musical heritage as rich as anywhere else in the world.

The result is her second album, "What The Sea Wants, The Sea Will Have". Recorded swiftly, the album displays a more succinct, a more lucid and a more forthright Sarah Blasko. Her lyrics shoot straight and the instrumentation is clear and purposeful in its application.

Despite Blasko’s grace in the face of her humble achievements thus far, her confidence must have grown a little. She has tiptoed amongst the shadows of people like Jim Moginie, Neil Finn, Paul McKercher & Victor Van Vugt – people whose contribution to music stretches back into her suburban youth. Yet Sarah has emerged into the sunlight on the other side unflinchingly still herself.

Sonando en el blog : Vega4

Ya iba siendo hora de cambiar las canciones, pronto haré un post sobre las 24 canciones que sonaron en el blog. De momento, os dejo 4 canciones de Vega4 de los cuales ya he hablado.
"You and me" en la versión que estuvo disponible en su MySpace.
"Life is beautiful" versión del disco "You and others"
"Papercuts" y "Bullets" ambas obtenidas gratis al apuntarme a su mailing-list.

Próximamente sonara la compilación que hice de 20 temas. Algunas ya las escuchaste, de otras hablé. Pero muchas veces sobran las palabras, y lo que cuenta es escuchar.
Time for new music in the blog. Now you can listen to 4 songs by Vega4.
Soon I'll write a post about the 24 songs that you could listen here until today. And I'll make a player in case you want to remember them.

And if the links want work, I'll make a player with my last MIX CD. 20 songs that I hope you will be able to listen soon.

M. Craft "Sweets" VIDEO y LETRA

Single released 02/10/06 on 679 Recordings


Rose Byrne se dió a conocer definitivamente con su papel de Briseida en Troya. Desde entonces la hemos visto y veremos en:

Wicker Park - Obsesión (2004) .... Alex
The Tenants (2005) .... Irene

Sunshine (2007)
Dead girl (2007)

little magdalene, we all know about the places that you've been
you think you're hidden there but everyone has seen
and they can see you now you're out in the rain
it's five a.m. and you're on some corner again
soaking wet and there's no taxi with your name, you say...

"i take sweets from strangers
you got a car then let's take a ride
wanna see some places
wanna make some changes
wanna do some living tonight
i'm not shy"

never unseen, you ventured out into the great in-between
the eucalyptus and the burnt gasoline
on dusty nowhere roads you hitch yourself a ride
with a burnt-down man who's eyes are still wide
and all that you can talk about is suicide, you say..

"i take sweets from strangers
you got a car then let's take a ride
wanna see some places
wanna make some changes
wanna do some living tonight
i'm not shy"

little magdalene, we all know about the places that you've been...

M. Craft

Folk / Latin / Pop
London, United Kingdom


Sobre M.Craft por 679 Recordings:

2006 solo debut from this Australian musician, formerly with Space Rock outfit Sidewinder. This time out, Martin Craft's love of late-night Modern Soul shines through with Gainsbourg-like pop mixed with a touch of Neil Young and James Blunt for good measure. The early reviews for this album are using words like 'dazzling', 'fantastic' and 'mesmerizing'. 679.

Swedish Rock Days


Exactamente un año después de su primera edición vuelve el Swedish Rock Days. No cambia de ubicación, se volverá a celebrar, por tanto, en la Sala Heineken de Madrid, el jueves 23 de noviembre. En su segunda edición, el festival crece tanto organizativamente (ya que a Merklubba Production se han unido Fikasound y Explosión Musical), como en su apuesta por descubrir nuevos talentos y darlos a conocer en nuestra geografía. El objetivo, sin embargo, sigue siendo el mismo: el intercambio musical entre Suecia y España.

Este año el festival crece con nombres como Sugarplum Fairy (muy influenciados por Mando Diao, donde toca el hermano de algunos de ellos), y Suburban Kids With Biblical Names, que después de cosechar buenas críticas tanto en la prensa nacional como internacional, se animan a dar el salto a nuestros escenarios para demostrarnos lo que valen.

Con un concepto más pop que en la edición anterior, se sigue apostando por grupos que empiezan, como Sebastian Fors & The Ones That Got Away, Lucknow Pact o Ida Maria (ganadora del concurso de maquetas de la edición realizada en marzo en Estocolmo). Sin olvidar la participación de uno de los grupos españoles con más futuro, Havalina Blu.

No sabemos si será por los largos, fríos y duros inviernos, si es por el apoyo de las entidades culturales del país o por las clases de música obligatorias, pero Suecia está llena de buenos músicos y mejores grupos, y el 23 de noviembre podréis disfrutar de los personalísimos estilos de cinco de ellos. Posteriormente, tres de éstas bandas (Suburban Kids with Biblical Names, Sebastian Fors y Lucknow Pact) llevarán la representación de estos Swedish Days a Barcelona (el día 24 de Noviembre, Sala Apolo2) y a Gijón (el sábado 25 de Noviembre, Sala Louie,Louie). Os esperamos.

Estaba convencida haber incluido en un post de estos de Canciones para ti/Songs 4 u, su canción "Even rats". Parece que no está, asi que, aprovechando que tengo otro mp3 disponible, vamos a conocer a este trio. No conocia antes de ellos, o si era asi, no me acuerdo. Parece ser que su estilo ha cambiado algo. Y a Kelly del blog Sensory Overload le recuerda la canción mencionada a Third Eye Blind. Y algo si que recuerda.

Rock / Indie / Big Beat



Marc Friedman (bass, vocals);
Brad Barr (guitar, lead vocals);
Andrew Barr (drums, vocals)

Info recogida en Amazon.com sobre la banda y el último disco:
Sometimes a band comes along that you can't help but champion-. THE SLIP are the real deal.This is indie-rock at it's best. Their latest (and greatest) album is called Eisenhower 11 tracks of brilliantly wrought, well, BIG ROCK. The stuff of heroes...and the heroes in this case are guitarist/vocalist Brad Barr, his bro and drummer Andrew Barr and bassist Marc Friedman. It's a lot to put on the shoulders of these 3 Boston-and-Montreal-based lads, but they brought it on themselves, what with their epic sound and their reaching for more, etc...
The band entered Q-Division Studios in Boston with co-producer Matthew Ellard (Elliot Smith, Billy Bragg & Wilco, Morphine) and later with sound engineer and co-conspirator Drew Malamud (Stars, Metric, The Dears), emerging with an album of classic proportions - drawing from roots as diverse as the Beatles and Led Zep to Built To Spill, Flaming Lips, Wilco, etc...

The first 3 tunes set the tone - from the kick off "Children of December," with its spiraling melody and fast talking delivery, through "Even Rats" - a super-charged, arena-rock racecar for your impersonal post-apocalypse, (the track has already been featured in Sony Playstation2's top-selling "Guitar Hero" video game, earning the band legions of new fans worldwide), to the languid and beautiful epic "If One Of Us Should Fall," or the intimate lullabye of "Suffocation Keep."

Eisenhower is, dare we say it, a classic - undeniably great and gallant, it takes our everyday, mundane feelings and elevates them to profundity- in essence, doing what true poetry does. And, not to mention, just being amazing rock n' roll. Gordon Matthew

4 nuevas canciones de Dan Wallace

new 4 songs for u by Dan Wallace

Siguiendo con la estela de "¿qué poner en una compilación?". Me siguen surgiendo cantantes o grupos que este año me han llamado la atención. Acabo de volver a escuchar "Girl in the war" de Josh Ritter. Y cómo no incluirla, si es... sencillamente genial.
Y ahora me he acordado de Dan Wallace. Las cuatro canciones disponibles cuando hablé de él, el 17 de Mayo en el blog de MySpace, eran muy buenas. Acabo de pasarme por su perfil y resulta que tiene otras 4 disponibles de su trabajo "Neon and gold". Con esa excusa hablamos de él en este blog, aunque ya su canción "Fell" fue incluida en el primer player que hicimos para escuchar en asilentroom.


Canciones disponibles en su MySpace y en su Web:

-Back of my mind (mp3)

-Le Neant (mp3)

-Sonatina (mp3)

-Vante left them human (mp3)

Canciones para ti

Abrimos el post con un cantante del cual tenia este mp3 en el escritorio del ordenador, y cuando no tenia conexión o no me cargaba algun player de la red, pues escuchaba lo que tenia en el ordenador. Y cuando llegaba a esta canción pensaba que quedaría bien en la compilación o simplemente, me gustaba. No sabia muy bien de donde habia salido la canción, pero al final, encontré quien era. Y sorpresa! para variar... una de sus canciones estaba incluida en el nuevo CD, el 2º, de la bso de Anatomia de Grey. Concretamente la canción "Bound by love", la cual puedes escuchar en su MySpace.

Gran Bel Fisher "Edible" (mp3) (MySpace)

Sobre Mendetz por Sinnamon Records:

Mendetz, regreso al futuro
Que el recién publicado debut de Mendetz sea la referencia número 200 de Sinnamon Records no es una casualidad. Desde la primera referencia del sello, The Libertines, no se había visto a un grupo tan descarado y con tanto talento. “Mendetz” (Sinnamon Records, 06) es un álbum contundente y trepidante en el que la jovencísima banda barcelonesa ha logrado aglutinar sus viejas y nuevas influencias, el dance rock de The Faint, !!! o sus admirados The Rapture, el synth pop de The Human League, la retro electrónica de Daft Punk y los teclados juguetones de Depeche Mode o Oschestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, hasta lograr un sonido cien por cien personal.

Bravo Silva 2003-2006

Volviendo a pensar en canciones para la compilación, además de Vega4, me acordé de la gran "I can't say goodbye" de Bravo Silva. Ahora que me acabo de pasar por su MySpace, resulta que la banda ha decidido parar, y quién sabe si volverán. Una pena. Debido a ello, aunque ya hablé de ellos en el blog de MySpace, los recuperamos aqui, por si no los conocias.

NEW YORK, United States



Sobre la banda recogido en su web y MySpace:
New York duo Bravo Silva makes artful pop rock music that is at once extremely listenable and sonically complex. Acknowledging the limitations of contemporary indie-rock, Bravo Silva balances the genre's self-awareness with an unguarded love for accessible, intelligent songcraft. Working together, Henry Silva and Joel Bravo create rock tunes that take a crash course through 80s radio rock melody, singer/songwriter verse, and 70s prog rock theatrics. Their synergetic collaboration is musically dynamic: while Silva's husk-and-silk voice reaches for far ends of a dramatic range, Bravo's subtle yet deft guitar work supports and challenges hook-filled song writing. Lush and textured soundscapes call to mind the arrangements of Blonde Redhead and 10cc, and pop-oriented melodies draw from The Police and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. However, once their melodious hooks set in, the band moves on. Never settling, Bravo Silva changes course just as everything becomes comfortable.

Bravo Silva recently finished recording their self-titled debut, produced by Malachi DeLorenzo and soon to be released by Streak Music. For their live sets they are joined by M Wolf (drums), Daniel Gower (synths), and Pete Van Leeuwen (bass).

bravo silva has decided to disband indefinitely. we are deeply gratefull for all your love and support over the last three years and wish you all the best. we'll miss you.

Escogiendo canciones para la compilación, me acordé de Vega4. Su canción "You and me" me gustó mucho cuando la escuché en Mayo. Ya hablé de ellos en el blog de MySpace (aqui o pica en el link del blog de MySpace -aqui- y pon la fecha del 18 de Mayo del 2006).
Esta semana he mirado su perfil en MySpace, y tienen otras 3 canciones para escuchar. Además y aqui llega lo más importante, han editado su primer disco llamado "You & Others" y una de sus canciones "Life is beautiful" fue elegida para ambientar uno de los capítulos de la 3ª temporada de Anatomia de Grey. Asi que, si aún no los conocías, hoy te los presento :)
Y es que, como ya dije en el post de Augustana. Estoy recuperando el estilo de música que me gustaba al principio. Y si Augustana me recuerda mucho a Lifehouse (por lo menos, en el tema que da título a su trabajo). Vega4 primero eran los de la gran "You and me" que estaba descargable en su MySpace. Y ahora se han convertido en una banda a la que prestar atención, por el lanzamiento reciente de su primer trabajo y porque su estilo recuerda a Snow Patrol (en "Life is beautiful") y a otros. Pero escuchando "Papercuts" y "Bullets" (por cierto este título también es igual para una canción de Augustana), las cuales puedes descargar gratis si te apuntas a su mailing list, se ve que hay algo más, su propio estilo lleno de esa intensidad propia de cada banda. Que se hagan grandes como Snow Patrol, Radiohead, Embrace, ... es algo que se verá con el tiempo.
Añado que el inicio de "Papercuts" es muy Radiohead,¿no? Asi que, aunque las 4 que os he dejado para escuchar están muy bien. Me quedo por "originalidad" con "You and me". Alguna influencia habrá, pero eso ya me lo decis en los comments o en el chatbox de aqui al laito.

London, United Kingdom



John McDaid vocals, guitar
Simon Walker bass
Bruce Gainsford guitar
Bryan McLellan - drums

Influencias: Kraftwerk, Stereolab, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Arvo Part, The Postal Service, Rufus Wainwright, Fourtet, M83

Suenan parecido a: U2, Radiohead, The Verve, Snow Patrol, The Strokes, The Killers

Información recogida en su MySpace:
Vega4 release their single 'You and Me' through Columbia Records on 14th August. The single, available as a ltd edition 10" & CD, was produced by Garret 'Jacknife' Lee (Bloc Party, Editors, U2, Snow Patrol).

Vega4 is four individuals with wildly different backgrounds. They are Irishman Johnny McDaid (Vocals, Guitar), Canadian Bryan McLellan (drums), New Zealander Bruce Gainsford (guitar) and Englishman Simon Walker (bass). Brought together whilst living in London through mutual friends, they built a bond based on their shared interests in music. As with their geographic backgrounds, each member brought with them overtly different musical influences. "It's so hard to describe our sound" explains Johnny. "There are so many elements and influences on this record". .

They mark their arrival with the striking single 'You & Me' available on limited edition 10" Vinyl & CD. This track encapsulates the distinctive sound of Vega4, providing an incredible mix of driving guitar lines, strong vocals and unforgettable hooks. Having already built up a strong live fanbase the band will be playing the Latitude Festival alongside The Zutons, Antoney and the Johnsons & Mogwai.

Vega4s experience of working with Jackknife Lee on album 'You and Others', out later this year, was at times as bizarre as it was inspiring. Devoted to working with the band, Lee would undertake sessions between other commitments; hence the album took 9 months to complete. Working with Garret was so stimulating Johnny comments. "He had a way of making us focus on the world and our music from an entirely different perspective. Jackknife forced us out of introspection by whatever means necessary. Whether it was going out to a field in the middle of the night to throw eggs during a vocal take, or climbing into cupboards and kitchen appliances, he managed to show us that beauty and interest exists in the ordinary. He showed us that it is everywhere."

The result is a clutch of uplifting and poignant songs. "We didn't feel the need to hide behind technology or the urge to create songs that please' or follow fashion insists Johnny. The most important thing is that the songs connect with people. Thats something that cant be worked at. It just is." The process of making this record for us was about finding beauty in the details.
