¡Felices fiestas!

No tengo vacaciones, pero estos días descansaré lo que se pueda. Como todos andaremos igual... Desearos felices fiestas. Que paséis buena Nochebuena y Navidad!!
Lo mejor del año 2007 se lo dejaremos a los expertos, y que tengáis un gran 2008!!

Quizá haga algún post especial de discos,pero ya dije hace tiempo cuáles eran mis discos favoritos de este año y la cosa sigue siendo la misma. El de Cloud Cult "The meaning of 8" y el de Miracle Fortress. Esos especialmente me han llamado la atención, por ser sonidos diferentes a lo que solía escuchar.

Editorial Reviews

Product Description
The Whigs are proud to announce the release of their ATO Records debut album, MISSION CONTROL. Set for a January 22, 2008 release, this confident collection of songs follows up the band's self-released / self-financed album, GIVE `EM ALL A BIG FAT LIP, which caught the attention of many, including Rolling Stone Magazine who declared the Athens GA three-piece "the best unsigned band in America." The Whigs spent most of 2006 and 2007 on the road winning over fans and critics with their full throttle alternative pop / rock which NPR hailed as a perfect combination of "the gravelly rock of The Replacements with the off-kilter pop of Guided By Voices." Eager to record their ATO debut, The Whigs entered the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles, CA with producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith). Sonically superior to anything the band has recorded to date, MISSION CONTROL is an album jam-packed with infectious melodies and dynamic rhythms. The urgency of opening track "Like A Vibration" knocks over the listener with a roaring attack of guitars, while "Production City" combines a dancing bass line over machine gun tight rhythms. Julian Dorio is a staple throughout, but on the soon to be anthem "Right Hand on My Heart," Dorio's playing makes it evident why Esquire Magazine named him "Drummer of the Year" in 2007. The Whigs will spend the rest of 2007 on the road gearing up for the release of MISSION CONTROL.

Editor's review
And here you thought the "In Rainbows" innovations stopped at do-it-yourself pricing. How about a set of remixes from an Oakland indie hip-hop producer? Just spacey pop in the original, the new Radiohead is something far more postmodern here: Thom Yorke's murmurs spooned over chops and flows.

Biography

Amplive is an incredibly busy dude. The Oakland-based DJ/ producer spent the past decade grinding with Bay Area royalty as one half of Zion I, making a hefty name for himself in the production community with behind-the-boards credits on records from Akon, Kafani, Keak Da Sneak, Goaepele and Talib to prove it. But Live has been up to some of his most genuinely impressive work in ?07.

Maybe you heard? Two months ago a little band called Radiohead turned the music industry on its ear when they announced the pay-what-you-want, digital-only release of their sixth LP, In Rainbows. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Amplive decided to pick apart the most buzzed about record of the year, immersed himself in the ten tracks, dissecting every second, breaking the work of Thom Yorke and company down to its rhythmic core.

The result is Rainydayz Remixes, a six-song collection of reworked tracks that each serves as its own testament to Amplive?s ability as a versatile producer with an uncanny ear for timing and texture. Tracklist and more details to come, but in the meantime, check the sleek, starry remix of ?Nude.?

Editor's review (Download.com)
It's hard to say whether the Radar Bros. would be glad to hear that their vocals sound a bit like Chris Martin of Coldplay. They'd probably prefer Leonard Cohen--and lucky for them, somehow both are true. Either way, the bandmembers make pretty country-folk ditties that show their attachment to lo-fi folk without bogging them down by the genre's self-seriousness.

Bio (Download.com)

The Radar Bros. make warm, shimmering, slow motion rock songs that sneak into your heart with low-key attitude and a countrified sheen. They are an old porch rocking chair on a warm summer's evening, a quiet moment with an good friend, and late afternoon sunlight washing over spring-green foothills.


Noticias/News:

Merge Records will be releasing the new Radar Bros. album Auditorium throughout North America on January 29, 2008. Auditorium was recorded by the band in Jim Putnam's home studio - Phase IV Intergalactic Recording. Filled with beautifully layered melodies and the wistful ease and delicate longing that has become a Radar Bros’ trademark, Auditorium embodies sun baked and dreamy California psychedlic-soul.

The Radar Brothers will be playing a residency at The Echo in Los Angeles every Monday in January (all shows are FREE!), and a full-on North American tour will take place in the spring of 2008, including a stop at SXSW in March. What better way to kick off the New Year?! Preorders begin January 2nd!

Look out for the premiere of a new video from the Radar Brothers in January 2008! The band collaborated with director Bradley Beesley (“Fearless Freaks”, Flaming Lips) on a video for “When Cold Air Goes To Sleep”, the lead track from Auditorium.

Sambassadeur "Final say" - free MP3 single


Cortesía de Labrador:

Second single from Sambassadeur's masterpiece "Migration" is their most luxurious track to date. With Miami Vice-percussion, a choir that seems to be singing underground and galloping guitars "Final say" is bound to dominate any tasteful dance floors in the year 2008. Truly wonderful!

"Anna Persson's whispery vocals are still a big part of the group's charm, but her words get outshone here by the jet-set production: massive 1980s synth-pop snares, skittering hi-hats, and touches of tropical percussion underlie a deft, trebly guitar riff and reverb-dripping synths" PITCHFORK

"Final say" is released on CD single on January 30. Until then, please enjoy this free MP3 download.

Diamond Hoo Ha Men were conceived in Berlin.

Childhood friends since Kindergarten, Duke Diamond & Randy Hoo Ha started out playing Rammstein covers as part of a local residency. During this time they discovered they had an almost Jagger/Richards-esque knack for song writing.

They soon left Berlin and the residency for the bright lights of London where they now live...together.

Duke & Randy are infamously inseparable and although not officially partners, they share the same bed (Duke always on the right, Randy on the left), eat, drink and bath together.

It's true they have a volatile relationship, but there's no doubting this 'Odd Couple' make very special music.

Editor's review

The Brooklyn duo describes itself as "owing as much to chaos theory as it does to fractal geometry," which doesn't say much other than its two dudes are smart. But this is pertinent. The psych- and electro-tinged art rock of "Oracular Spectacular" plays like updated Bowie.

Biography

40 years after the Summer of Love (and 30 years after the Summer of Hate), MGMT is celebrating the grand re-opening of the third eye of the world with Oracular Spectacular, the duo's much-anticipated first full-length album, an enigmatic and prophetic collection of hallucinatory sounds and hook-riddled pop tones for the new millennium. MGMT is: Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, two psychic pilgrims whose paths first intersected in the green pastures of Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, circa 2002. "We weren't trying to start a band," Ben remembers. "We were just hanging out, showing each other music that we liked." Andrew and Ben realized that -- despite their opposing views on methodology (one is spontaneously practical, the other is practically spontaneous) -- they shared a common love of mystic paganism (ironic indeed on a campus named for the founder of Methodism), psychotropic sounds, and the belief that a joke (or a joke song) could be sad, profound, and funny at the same time. The pair was drawn to the music of other duos and found themselves incorporating the implications of the hallucinatory power-twee of the Incredible String Band, the roaring subway minimalist electronica of Suicide, the silky pop-soul of Hall & Oates, the pulsing narcotic trance of Spacemen 3, the avant-garde industrial romanticism of Royal Trux and much more into the constantly evolving sounds of MGMT. As on-campus performance art provocateurs, Andrew and Ben began staging a series of "these obnoxious, noisy live electronic shows -- we never planned on having it be a recorded project -- where we would write these weird techno loops and arrangements that we could play with live. Most of it was running live off the computer and we had a turntable plugged into some guitar pedals, a radio, and a tape player. It was all electronically generated at that point. We would write a new song for each show and our shows would be 15 minutes long." The One Song/One Show ethos is manifest in the tracks of Oracular Spectacular, each song on the album shimmers with its own diamond-hard compression of elements interconnecting within MGMT's "unusual or unconventional pop structures." Continually inverting expectations, the music of MGMT owes as much to chaos theory as it does to fractal geometry. In contrast to the group's early live shows, which were mainly electronically generated, Oracular Spectacular is filled with "more traditional rock instruments: electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, synthesizers all played live." Restlessly experimental and consumed with divine discontent, the members of MGMT embarked on a series of temporary guises. "We went on a tour with a drummer once," Andrew confesses, "after we'd written these weird California Creedence Clearwater-style songs in two weeks. We went out, played them, and never did the songs again. A lot of people hated it. That used to be the goal of our shows. We were still trying to be obnoxious and somehow people got into it. Some songs we wrote just because we wanted to learn how to be really bad within a certain genre and then people started liking the song because they liked the genre. It was an accident that people started liking us." Some of those first fans included a group of NYU students who formed an indie label, Cantora Records, in order to issue the very first MGMT commercial release, Time To Pretend (a 6-song EP, currently available on iTunes). Two of the songs from that EP -- "Time To Pretend" (the MGMT "mission statement") and "Kids" ("filled with all those college feelings: naivety, idealism, nostalgia, happiness, sadness") -- have made it on to Oracular Spectacular. Following the release of the EP and a couple of one-month long tours, MGMT took six months off, with Andrew moving to Brooklyn for a post-college "existential crisis" and Ben hanging out in Connecticut before heading to upstate New York to work woodland construction. Following their hiatus from MGMT, Ben and Andrew reconnoitered in Brooklyn and began recording new songs for the sheer fun of it on an "Mbox computer set-up." Those humble home sessions -- at once Apollonian and Dionysian -- lay the groundwork for what would become Oracular Spectacular. Oracular Spectacular opens with "Time To Pretend" ("fanciful but with an undercurrent of impending doom") and closes with "Future Reflections" ("premonitions of a post-apocalyptic future where colonies of young people live on the beach and lead savage yet refined primitive lifestyles and go surfing"). In between lie the refractions of the "current chaotic vibrations of the world" on a album which distills the essence of the past, promises and portends the future, and offers an absorbing transformative experience between the molecules in the pulsations of the present. Not to mention an authentic "4th Dimensional Transition." "Kids are going to be inheriting their parents MP3 collections," Ben predicts. "And, in that aesthetic, corrupted MP3 files will be like the way people glorify scratched-up records now. In 20 years, people will listen to these 30th generation MP3s and say, 'I love that sound!'" MGMT invites you to open your mind to the multi-dimensional vibrating Technicolor sounds of Oracular Spectacular.

James C - Vocals, Rythm Guitars, Keyboards & Programming
Javimadrid - Drums

Bio recogida en su MySpace:

Many things can be said about Dear X, but never that the band has searched for easy, quick success. Their brand new EP, "Somehow Still Breathing" (summer 2007), marks an ironic wink to their faithful audience, which has quietly travelled their path since their debut gig in Madrid, back in 1999. A dispassionate observer would certainly point out their obsessive search for a compact and original sound which brings together the legacy of apparently distant bands who, to their view, share the same water currents: examples include Jeff Buckley, The Smiths, Radiohead or The Police. This observer would also underline James’ (b. Leeds, England, 1975) obvious talent as composer and singer; some of his songs are simply beautiful and bound to leave a trace in people’s memories. The three other members of the band, all born and raised in Madrid, are Ilex (1974), lead guitarrist, a perfectionist genius who has broadened Dear X’ ambitions; Dani (1974), greatly creative bass player and supportive band member; and Javimadrid (1975), long-time Madrid-scene drummer who, up to today, has been the only one of them to make a living out of music.

Dear X have been repeatedly described as an embryo of Radiohead wrapped in pop tissue . They consciously assume the pop-band label and have chosen from their beginnings to sing in English, the language in which James was born to the world.. Not a choice for everybody’s taste in Spain, but a clear symptom of their determination and honest approach to music. The group was born in Madrid among old friends and played local venues to provoke instant enthusiasm. Problems with original members delayed their evolution, until the unpleasant situation was firmly cut by the choice to stop collaborating with youth friends. This conflict would subsequently last two years more; a couple of musicians were on board for months, but couldn’t meet the commitment and obsessive standard required to steer the boat. The band participated in some local contests with promising results and played several unplugged gigs, but internal unstability never seemed to leave space for growth beyond. Finally, and despite the members’ professional careers and some personal temporary crises, Dear X were able to set a course of action and take on the recording of this EP, initially thought of as home-produced, but which ended up attracting the attention of several producers and receiving many hours of professional care in two studios in Madrid.

Many songs were left aside in the quest to make Somehow still breathing a representative sample of their music. Of their discrete search for this unknown audience, X, “Must I play this game?” is the only song included from their youthful hits: a celebration of their ability to write attractive pop tunes and catch the audience’s attention. The rest of the short record describes well their musical evolution and portrays an exuberant rainbow of dense guitars, electronic side effects, supporting vocals and synchronised rhythmic section which brings them nearer to the radioheadesque path which might have acted as a motivating force in their origins (“Airbag” is still their most perfect cover song in live shows). Farer away seem now the easier listening, most optimistic songs from the early days, strongly permeated by Supertramp or the most direct pop hits of The Police. The sound is on the verge of saturation, but has managed to leave enough space to dream on their meditative love lyrics, astonishing harmonies and clear, transparent voice. Somewhere in the middle, while the song starts to build itself, we get the impression that there was a common factor in those admired artists whose legacy Dear X is striving to stretch further.

The LP is worth the hunt for its pop-wise rattle (Pavement with a case of the Strokes) and singer Josh Westfal’s resemblance, in dry, frank voice and cautious optimism, to another local institution: Lou Reed on the Velvet Underground’s fourth album, Loaded.

Last Leaf LETRA

Lyrics © David Geraghty

I know what it would take for me to be free
To always be silenced everytime she spills tears
I can't ever leave you baby I believe
Just want to be the one who shakes down the last leaf

Feel I'm hanging around only to test thread
If it's strong enough to hold me
Then I'm weak enough to live
But I can't ever leave you baby I believe
Just want to be the one who shakes down the last leaf

Long time runnin'
from the strong lines that holds
It's all I've known
Don't adjust your set
There are cracks on the pavement
So watch where you walk
I'm up in my room
Can you be here soon?

You've put it across forbidden lines
If you never brought it back
I'd never know how where to find it

Long time runnin'
from the strong lines that holds
It's all I've known
Don't adjust your set
The storm will pass
Been up on the roof til now
Changing the tune
There are cracks on the pavement
So watch where you walk
Are you in the room
Can you be here soon

Some surprise VIDEO

Some Surprise - Lisa sings this track with Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol on the The Cake Sale album. It was written by Paul Noonan of Bell X1.



Lyrics © Paul Noonan

Your lips come as some surprise
That they would want to come and meet mine
They never taste like the last time
Your lips come as some surprise

I was always a special child
With circuit boards for my insides
And all I dreamed of was flyiong high
So your lips came as some surprise

Your lips come as some surprise
That they would want to come and meet mine
They never taste like the last time
Your lips come as some surprise

I was never one of the boys
Throwin shapes and power ploys
In your arms a warmth I did find
In your seed I did recline

Your lips come as some surprise
That they would want to come and meet mine
They never taste like the last time
Your lips come as some surprise

Now that we've sat for a while
You showed me yours and I've showed you mine
Even after all this time
Your lips come as some surprise

Your lips come as some surprise
That they would want to come and meet mine
They never taste like the last time
Your lips come as some surprise

The Cake Sale

Mucho tiempo sin bloguear...Entre semana imposible entre curro,clases y pasando de pelear con el potatillo. Además después de la decepción del concierto de Bloc Party (estuvieron muy correctos y hasta "cercanos", pero a mi no me llegó su directo),pues... creo que he tenido una crisis musical :P También tener que escuchar en el curro todo la mañana y la tarde,cuando toca, Los40, lo cual implica escuchar 4 canciones, 1 novedad y 4 canciones "clásicas", pues... Pero hoy me he levantado con ganas de hacer algo que me gusta, bloguear, aunque apenas tendré tiempo en este rato, y me ha dado por escuchar un disco que tenía por aquí, y me he enamorado de "Last leaf",la canción que abre el disco,cantada por Lisa Hannigan, se trata de varios artistas que forman The Cake Sale. Y por eso iniciamos hoy con ellos. No sé si son buenos o malos, pero a mi me gustan, y creo que la esperanza de "perder mi "particular" gusto musical" no está del todo perdida.

Info recogida en su MySpace:

The Cake Sale is a band featuring a loose and expansive collective of musicians and writers who have combined to create a 9-song CD of the same name on Oxfam Records. All profits will go to support Oxfams Make Trade Fair campaign and their overseas programme work.

Recorded in Dublin last year, the bones of The Cake Sale's tracks were laid down by Bell X1 duo Crosby and Paul Noonan along with Crowded House bassist Nick Seymour and drummer Graham Hopkins. All songs were previously unreleased and recorded specifically for the Cake Sale project with all publishing royalties being donated by their writers. Lead vocals were provided from Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody, Glen Hansard (The Frames/ ONCE ), Nina Persson (The Cardigans), Gemma Hayes, and Josh Ritter among others. The song "All The Way Down" written by Glen Hansard and subsequently appearing on the soundtrack of indie movie hit ONCE , now features vocals by Gemma Hayes.

Subsequent to the initial recording sessions, vocalists and additional musical parts were recorded in a range of studios and countries according to the touring and recording schedules of the artists involved. On the duet "Some Surprise" Gary Lightbody and Lisa Hannigan (former Damien Rice collaborator) recorded their vocal parts in different countries at completely different times with the song's ultimate success only being proven in the final mix.

"From a creative point of view, I was interested in making a cohesive sounding record for charity by co-ordinating the efforts of a disparate group of people . All the artists involved wanted the Cake Sale to be an authentic album, with all the songs relating to each other in a relevant way" explains Crosby. "There was a really enthusiastic response from everyone who was approached to write songs or perform, which made it a relatively easy project to put together. Everyone got the vibe of what we were trying to achieve. In fact, the only tricky bit was co-ordinating everybody's conflicting schedules ."

After recording Paul Noonan and Brian Crosby left for Tanzania to observe how the proceeds from The Cake Sale would be dispersed. Noonan explains, "Seeing at first hand how the fruits of your labours will be used is at the same time both affirming and humbling. As musicians it was obviously a totally different world for us but it gave us a certainty that the album and the money from those who buy and enjoy it, is working as it should be."

Originally released in Ireland in November 2006, The Cake Sale is a double platinum album in that country. Ireland's Metro Life raved "...a quite dazzling showcase of the Irish music scene." while Hot Press went on to write, "...this is the album other charity records aspire to be."

Oh nothing's going to change my love for you
I wanna spend my life with you
So we make love on the grass under the moon
No one call tell, damned if I do
Forever journey on golden avenues
I drift in your eyes since I love you
I got that beat in my veins for only rule
Love is to share, mine is for you

La brújula dorada /The golden compass

WEB

Una día estaba en la biblioteca y vi un libro de color marrón con un oso y dibujos cartográficos, decidí leerlo y me enganché desde el principio. Con Luces del Norte comenzaba lo que sería una trilogía llamada La materia oscura y que Philip Pullman terminaba,tras La daga, con El catalejo lacado. Cuando Harry Potter se llevó al cine, pensé que bien podía haber sido también Lyra Belacqua, la que apareciera en la gran pantalla. Hace dos días vi en la televisión un spot, y en cuanto vi las imágenes lo supe, The golden compass/La brújula dorada era la trilogía llevada a la gran pantalla. No habia enterado antes, a pesar de que en ella aparecen Daniel Craig y Nicole Kidman interpretando a dos de los personajes más interesantes de la historia. No voy a entrar en los pensamientos del autor, sólo diré que personalmente el rollo cristiano o todo lo contrario le sobraba a la historia. Y ya hay gente que está diciendo que no se vaya al cine a verla. Polémica hay. A pesar de eso y de que la fama de algunos actores puede que tape el fuerte carácter y peso de algunos personajes, no me lo voy a perder, porque llevaba mucho tiempo esperando esto :) Lyra Lengua de Plata, el oso, el aletiómetro y los daimonios por fin toman forma, aunque siempre nos gustará más imaginarnos los mundos creados en La materia oscura.

Una de las cosas malas de una película es que se saben muchas cosas al principio, y no entras en el juego de ir descubriendo las caras de cada personaje según la historia va sucediendo,pero siempre será así. Consolémonos con haber leído previamente el libro.


Description: Lyra Belacqua(Dakota Blue Richards) is a young girl living at Jordan College in the Oxford of an alternate world much like our own where everyone is accompanied by a daemon, a physical representation of their soul in animal form. Lyra overhears a stange meeting between her Uncle, Lord Asriel(Daniel Craig) and the scholars at Jordan college about other worlds and some substance called dust. After this meeting she is unsure about the true nature of her college. As time passes children around Oxford begin to disappear by the hands of a group known as the Gobblers. When Lyra's friend Roger(Ben Walker) is taken, she and her daemon Pantalaimon(Freddie Highmore voice) set off on an epic journey to find him. Before she can leave, the Master of Jordan College(Jack Shepherd) introduces Lyra to the beautiful Mrs. Coulter(Nicole Kidman). Lyra is immediately taken by Mrs. Coulter and goes to live with her. The morning of Lyra's departure, The Master calls her urgently into his office and gives her a strange instrument called an Alethiometer. He tells her that it is capable of telling the truth but that it is up to her to read it. He also pleads with her to keep the Alethiometer to herself.

After some time in Mrs. Coulter's company, Lyra discovers that Mrs. Coulter is deeply involved with the General Oblation Board which is the organization that has become known as the Gobblers. Upon discovering this information Lyra flees. She is picked up by the fierce but friendly Gyptian woman Ma Costa(Clare Higgins). Lyra travels with the Gyptians and becomes acquainted with John Faa(Jim Carter), Lord of the Gyptians and his advisor Farder Cordam(Tom Courtenay). Lyra also learns the shocking truth that Lord Asriel is really her father and that her mother is none other than Mrs. Coulter. She also learns that Lord asriel has been taken captive and is being kept in the bear kingdom of Svalbard under heavy guard. The Gyptians are planning to send the best of their people north to Bolvangar, the rumored headquarters of the General Oblation Board, to rescue the captured children. Lyra insists on accompaning the Gyptians on their journey North in hopes of finding Roger and her father.

Release Me (obtenida en su website)
(E. Althoff)

I am the wilderness locked in a cage
I am a growing force you’ve kept in place
I am a tree reaching for the sun
Please don’t hold me down
Please don’t hold me down

I am a rolling wave without the motion
A glass of water longing for the ocean
I am an asphalt flower breaking free
But you keep stopping me
Release me
Release me

I am the rain that’s coming down on you
That you’ve shielded yourself from with a roof
I am a fire burning desperately
But you’re controlling me
Release me
Release me

The Mary Onettes- Explosions MP3




Labrador is proud to announce the upcoming Mary Onettes single "Explosions". Offical release date is November 21. You, dear friend, may download it for free today. Just go here!

The title describes the song as good as anything. A drum intro that would make Phil Spector envious and guitars so big they seem to be recorded in a church lead us to a perfectly grandiose chorus. "... and it will make your heart stop".

The Mary Onettes self-titled debut album was released on April 25 in Sweden and followed by a full European release a couple of months later. The album got, well deserved, amazing reviews everywhere and the band has spent the autumn touring Europe.

The album will be released on December 4 in the US and, if you ask them kindly, they might come over and do some shows. For more info about the US release, please contact Carolina Borolla (caroline@aaminc.com) at Advanced Alternative Media.

Bio recogida en HushRecords:
Loch Lomond started as a solo recording project of Ritchie Young in 2003. With help of engineer/producer Rob Oberdorder, Ritchie crafted the first Loch Lomond album, When We Were Mountains (released on In Music We Trust Records). Over the next few years, Loch Lomond performed around Portland, OR and the Pacific Northwest in various incarnations. Live performances would range from Ritchie by himself to a nearly ten person band. During this time, many different recording sessions took place in various studios and homes. These recordings were eventually compiled on an EP called Lament For Children in early 2006. In the later half of 2006 Loch Lomond has solidified into a 9 person band, and the group is now busy rehearsing, writing and scheduling dates to record the second full-length Loch Lomond album, expected in early 2007. The group will be on the road between recording times, some shows utilizing the full line-up, and others as a condensed, but equally powerful version of the band.

House & Parish: A Biography(recogida en su WEB)

"It's not clear to me exactly when we became a band," explains Jason Gnewikow. He's trying to explain the sudden formation and steady rise of House & Parish, the Brooklyn quartet with whom he plays guitar. "But if I had to pinpoint it, I'd say it all came together earlier this year." Although Gnewikow—along with singer/guitarist John Herguth and bassist Scott Winegard—had already recorded a few songs with Jets To Brazil drummer Chris Daly in late 2006, the House & Parish story truly begins with the permanent addition of drummer Brian Malone. Having finally crystallized a formidable line-up and a strong cannon of material almost effortlessly, the band confirmed its first New York City performances; and, having tapped the production talent of former Rival Schools guitarist Ian Love, they reserved a new block of studio work. If it all sounds too easy, consider the band's pedigree: Gnewikow played guitar for indie-rock heroes The Promise Ring, Winegard served on bass duties for the much-loved Texas Is The Reason, Malone was last seen playing drums with Austin indie stalwarts The Gloria Record, and Herguth, whose previous work with The Love Scene won both critical acclaim and a record deal with Nirvana's A&R rep, Mark Kates, before prematurely disbanding in 2006. "People are going to think John came out of nowhere," Gnewikow muses, "but he's been around just as long as any of us. Maybe that's why it's so hard to say when or how House & Parish got together." He pauses. "I mean, we weren't a group of strangers before this all happened. The only difference is that when we hang out now, we bring instruments." House & Parish’s first six songs make up One, One-Thousand. The result is a brave new sound: crisp and melodic, spatial and dense, and delicate and raucous all at once. If House & Parish sound more adventurous than their previous discographies allude, it’s because they are. The band recently returned home to New York after live dates in the UK and Europe, and is currently writing what will be their first full-length album.

Lifehouse - From Where You Are

Tema inédito en su último trabajo Who we are. Esta canción únicamente está disponible en iTunes.




La historia de la canción, gracias a kleinluka

"From Where You Are," written and performed by Jason Wade, a member of a band named Lifehouse. Mr. Wade was inspired to write the song by the death of a 16-year-old friend in an auto accident.

The commercial dramatizes the issue by showing a highway crowded with cars ­- filled with teenage passengers -­ that suddenly disappear. "Every year, nearly 6,000 teenagers go for a drive and never come back," says the actor Dennis Haysbert, the Allstate spokesman. He asks the parents watching the spot to "start the conversation" with their teenage children about driving safely.


Lyrics - "From Where You Are" by Jason Wade, Lifehouse
From Where You Are
By Jason Wade, Lifehouse

So far away from where you are
The miles have torn us way apart
And I miss you
Yeah I miss you

So far away from where you are
And standing underneath the stars
And I wish you
Were here

I miss the years that were erased
I miss the way the sunshine would light up your face
I miss all the little things
I never thought that they’d mean everything to me
Yeah I miss
And I wish you
Were here

I feel the beating of your heart
I see the shadows of your face
Just know that wherever you are
Yeah I miss you
And I wish you were here

I miss the years that were erased
I miss the ways the sunshine would light up your face
I miss all the little things
I never thought that they'd mean everything to me

Yeah I miss you
And I wish you
Were here

So far from where you are
These miles have torn us way apart
And I miss you
Yeah I miss you
Yeah I wish you
Were here
