Today in New York


Hi everyone

This is just a quick reminder about my gig on Thursday,Aug 30th at Arlene's Grocery NYC. Onstage 8pm.

It's going to be my last gig with a full band for some time in the U.S.

Gonna try a new song too (hopefully....still not finished lyrics....)

It would be great to see you all there

Thedø

Ni idea de esta banda, a pesar de ser "La banda indie del momento",gracias a Fennics (cajatonta.tv) por descubrírmela. La verdad es que eso me hace plantearme que hago el tonto haciendo este blog. Hay blogs mejores, y no se puede hablar de todas las bandas, además para eso están sitios como el MySpace, para que cada uno curiosee a su ritmo y gusto.

Thedo, el grupo indie del momento.

Jueves, 30 de Agosto de 2007

O quizás no. Todavía es pronto, pero la banda franco-finlandesa Thedø es una apuesta ganadora. De esas veces que escuchas una canción y sin querer se te cuela en la cabeza donde la tienes clavada en la cabeza el resto del día, o el mes. Y después te pasas por su MySpace y el resto de canciones está al mismo nivel.

¿Quiénes son? Olivia B. Merilahti, una joven graduada en el conservatorio Jazz de Helsinki y el francés Dan Levy, músico de jazz y compositor de bandas sonoras. Sacan su primer álbum Mouthfull en Enero del 2008. Como muchas bandas prometedoras, se están haciendo dando a conocer rápidamente gracias a que su single On My Shoulders aparece en un spot de televisión, en este caso como banda sonora del anuncio de cuadernos Oxford.

Editor's review-Download.com
If the Perishers aren't careful, they're gonna get kicked out of the "the"-band coalition. The group eschews silly retro rock in favor of burnished indie pop. Along with acts like the National, they seem to point to a new era of clean urban tunesmithing, one where the droll trumps the ironic.

Grand Ole Party, Look Out Young Son MP3
by Staff | 08.27.2007

As a trio with a brassy front-woman the comparisons are sure to come aplenty, but San Diego's Grand Ole Party are forging their own place in rock 'n' roll with their unique mix of garage-blues, rock and raw energy. They recorded their debut album, Humanimals, in March 2007 with Blake Sennett (Rilo Kiley, The Elected) over a five-day stretch of live recording to capture the stripped-down power that embodies the Grand Ole Party sound. Coincidentally, the band will be heading out as support for Rilo Kiley's upcoming Fall tour. (Dates here.)
Humanimals will be released September 4 exclusively on iTunes with bonus track "Shot In The Alley," but the band will also be selling CDs at their upcoming shows. This week, we're featuring the album's haunting lead track, "Look Out Young Son" which sees Kristin Gundred, the drumming frontwoman extraordinaire, wailing "I must be the devil's daughter" over some dark garage rock. Take a listen below and consider this your official invitation to the Grand Ole Party.

Sambassadeur - subtle changes


Sambassadeur
»subtle changes«

Sambassadeur returns with a new luxurious sound.

In 2003 and 2004 Sambassadeur lead an explosive Swedish pop movement of home recording artists who surprised our country by not only achieving overnight indie fame, thanks to the MP3 spreading kids, they actually reached the sales charts.

Considering the "Gothenburg-based band played wistful indie pop that put a Sarah Records or C86 ramshackleness on influences like the Velvet Underground and the Go Betweens" (PITCHFORK) this came as a surprise to many. To us, it proved that the average record buyer might not have the worst taste in music after all.

The new single "Subtle changes" showcases brand new sides of Sambassadeur. With help from producer Mattias Glavå (Broder Daniel, Dungen, Håkan Hellström) they've returned with a luxurious sound filled with disco hi-hats, swooping strings and orchestra drums that enhance their deceptive melodies to new heights.

Rilo Kiley - Silver Lining VIDEO

Después de The Moneymaker, nuevo video para una de las canciones incluidas en Under The Blacklight:



4-Sept-2007 (Updating):

Rilo Kiley, Silver Lining Video
by staff | 08.27.2007

Summertime is marriage season. Perhaps it's due to the cliche of summer love, perpetually beautiful weather or the opportunity for amazing photo ops in the backdrop of the summer's haze? Regardless, indie darlings Rilo Kiley didn't miss the marriage memo. They've sent out their invitations, and now its time to attend the virtual wedding of the summer.

"Silver Lining" features lead singer Jenny Lewis as the stunning, and slightly nervious, vision in white, while guitarist, Blake Sennett is cast as the dapper husband-to-be. From there, the story is filled with vintage cumberbuns, a mini church choir, handclaps, cameos and one major bridal transformation. As Jenny pulls her best runaway bride impression, it's easy to see that all that glitters isn't gold.

De esta banda hablé a inicios de este año. Un gran descubrimiento y canciones que ponían de buen humor o te tocaban la fibra sonaron en el blog. La banda sacará disco en Septiembre, no sé si es el primero o el segundo,porque de esta banda en su tiempo no encontré mucha información. El disco se llamará Dwell y el primer sencillo para adelantarlo es este que ponemos en forma de video.

Band of Horses - Funeral VIDEO

Con muchas ganas de escuchar el nuevo disco de Band of Horses. Si este año, la música que me ha dejado :o ha sido la de Cloud Cult, el pasado año fue la canción Funeral de Band of Horses, de su trabajo Everything all the time:
Achieving musical transcendence is a tricky feat, almost definitively. If it happens at all, it happens naturally and perhaps nobody knows that better than Seattle, Washingtons Band of Horses. Guitarist/vocalist Ben Bridwell and guitarist Mat Brooke formed Band of Horses in 2004, after the dissolution of their nearly ten-year run in northwest melancholic darlings Carissas Wierd. Carissas Wierd trafficked in sadly beautiful orchestral pop, whose songs told unflinching stories of heartbreak and loss, leavened with defeatist humor. And, Band of Horses rises from the ashes of that well-loved band. After playing music with each other for over a decade, Bridwell and Brooke picked up together again when Bridwell began fleshing out his compositions post-Carissas. It was really just a natural thing we started doing, explains Bridwell. Buoyed by Bridwells warm, reverb-heavy vocals (which strangely channel a dichotomous blend of Wayne Coyne, Brian Wilson and Doug Martsch,) Band of Horses woodsy, dreamy songs ooze with amorphous tension, longing and hope. At times raggedly epic (The Great Salt Lake) and delicately pensive (St. Augustine, Monsters), Everything All the Time is an album painted gorgeously in fragile highs and lows.

Oh Laura - Release me VIDEO

Hay gente que dice que cuando un artista vende una canción suya para un anuncio publicitario, se ha vendido. Pero es que muchas veces es la única manera de que su música llegue a más gente. O que incluso después del éxito que obtiene tras el spot, su disco se edite en otros países o que la banda no desaparezca. Ese fue el caso de Caesar con su "Jerk it out". Otras veces si que es cierto, que tanto se machaca la canción que la acabas odiando, o que luego la asocias más al anuncio que al grupo y a la música que ellos quieran ofrecerte después.

Gracias a un spot de SAAB, hoy hablamos de una banda sueca llamada Oh Laura.

Rock and Roll MP3

Letra/Lyrics for "rock and roll" :
Jaded eyes, pupils the wrong size
Lows coming, just past are the highs.
My head's in such a mess I cant even speak,
My eyes are like saucers flying to be seen

You think you're Rock and Roll

My body's getting weaker, my hands start to shake,
Believe in what Im saying, d'you think that Im a fake?
I feel like a junkie and Im craving for my score,
I feel like a junkie and I want some more

You think you're Rock and Roll

This is my exit, this is where I leave,
Caused enough pain, so now, you can breath.
No face or body, my life has gone,
I leave you in peace to carry on.

You think you're Rock and Roll

Josh Ritter

Rock / Indie / Folk Rock

Moscow, Idaho, Estados Unidos

WEB

MySpace



De este artista hablé en el anterior blog -el de MySpace-, le conocí con Girl in the war incluida en su trabajo del 2006,The animal years(Letras/MP3s). Pronto llegará su The historical conquests of Josh Ritter, el cual está recibiendo buenas críticas, hasta el punto de decirse que Será el mejor disco del 2007.

Bio:

Over the clatter of piano and strum of an electric guitar that opens his fourth studio album, Josh Ritter leaps into rapid-fire lyrics that reference Joan of Arc, Calamity Jane and Florence Nightingale, all of whom seem to be stuck together in the belly of a whale. As the follow-up to last year's critically-acclaimed album The Animal Years, The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter is his most adventurous, fresh, and freewheeling work to date.

While The Animal Years was a meticulously crafted and stately paean, for Conquests the artist radically revamped his working methods and his sound. “I needed to be somebody different,” the singer says. “The air of gravitas around me was getting oppressive. For some reason it seemed like there was a premium being placed on earnestness and that can be pretty stifling. There was a lot of talk about true love and righteous indignation. I wanted to write about gunslingers and missile silos.” The result is an often raucous, occasionally dizzying affair, with pounding keyboards, strings, horns, and his new producer and long-time collaborator Sam Kassirer, leading the charge. About the recording conditions in the Maine farmhouse where the record was made, Ritter enthuses, “You should have seen it up there. It was January and twenty below. We had horns in the attic, we had strings in the barn, we had a gaggle of people shooting targets with bb guns in the woods. It was a full house and everyone was there to throw themselves at the music. There was no holding back.”

The artistic leaps Josh Ritter displays on Conquests are not without their stepping-stones, however. On a conceptual level, Paul McCartney’s Ram served as an ever-present reminder to enjoy the process of writing. Ritter was attracted to the free-spirited quality of the solo album McCartney made at his own farmhouse—amidst the Beatles’ tumultuous breakup: “It sounded like he had something to prove, but also like he didn’t really care. In terms of my favorite records, Ram is more about the philosophy. If this guy can do this after what he came through, then, okay, maybe I could try something like this too. It really loosened me up.” Stepping farther back, he cites Buddy Holly’s apocryphal "The Apartment Tapes" as a major influence. “A friend passed me Buddy Holly’s Apartment Tapes. The tapes are plain and genius. Buddy sang ‘Learning the Game’ and ‘That’s What they Say’ in his apartment in New York City and you can hear his wife bumping around in the kitchen and the whole thing feels clear but not simple. Those recordings feel like a Raymond Carver story. I listen to him and remember that it doesn’t have to be all nine-minute songs. That guy can get more across in a couplet than some people are lucky to learn in their whole life.”

Given the new lyrical and musical trails that he is blazing, The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter proves that one can still cross any number of Rubicons all the while not taking themselves too seriously. Historic indeed.

Lo que cuentan en su MySpace:

...And what to say of myself? In the part where you sell yourself like a second hand car and convince those that have never heard that you are the coolest or that you have reinvented the wheel and the like... I'll save the fake spiel and pretense, divert from the formula of "say this and everyone will think you're the man".

Truth be told I had a million and one ideas floating round in my mind, the sort of thing that would drive someone crazy if you did nothing about it and beavered away at the 9-5 like a mouse on a wheel. And so you get to looking out of the factory or the office window and in trying to make sense of it the words just come. Tunes get written and ideas typed in outboxes and scrawled on the back of bus tickets until they're given form and become songs.

Maybe you might understand what i'm trying to say. Maybe you'll think its bollocks but you'll enjoy the groove and that??? I wish I could say I loved this band or that singer and that's why im doing this, but as I walk down the street I hear every type of song and maybe what i'm trying to say is that it all seeps into your mind somehow, until it all pours out!! If it moves you in someway, even the the tap of a foot then the war is won...

We are Reverend and The Makers and this is our space...

Info recogida en su MySpace:

When the rumour of Those Dancing Days mixture of pop, girlgroup and Northern Soul started to surface in Stockholm during the winter months of 2007 the five piece act quickly became one of the most talked about new bands in eons. Their track "Hitten" (the Swedish translation - The Hit) became just what the title says - their MySpace inundated with praise from all over the world. With a recent record deal in hand the band are ready to release a five track EP/mini album where "Hitten" leads the way into their charm-filled world. Those Dancing Days formed in Nacka- a suburb of Stockholm - in 2005. From the ashes of Rebecka Rolfart (guitar), Cissi Efraimsson (drums) and Lisa Pyk Wirström's former band, Those Dancing Days found their line-up completed when college friend Mimmi Evrell (bas) was asked to join who in her turn asked vocalist Linnea Jönsson. With this done things started to develop quickly. A demo was recorded and after songs were addded to their MySpace the feedback was instant. American music site -It's A Trap- got it spot on when they wrote "Sweet as apple-pie pop". The Debut Those Dancing Days EP hits the record stores at the end of August and the album will come early 2008 - before that the girls will be hitting all the major Swedish festivals.

Bio recogida en su web:
Contrary to their title, The Somnambulants are anything but sleepy. They have been making an energetic, dance-friendly, and unique brand of indie/electro-pop since 2000.

While recording Paper Trail, the girl/boy duo kept to their own rule: avoid writing of "electro" songs. With one or two exceptions, they worked with rock, blues, or pop compositions and arranged them using electronic instruments. The resulting album is a mix of songwriting styles wrapped in a single synthetic wrapper, with each track as unique and memorable as the next. The Somnambulants "are more indie-pop-influenced than most of their contemporaries, and that, I think, is a good thing." (Village Voice)

Stylistically, The Somnambulants are even more driven by cinematic influence, as evidenced in their lyrical imagery and spacious production. Joseph White built the first Somnambulants songs from music soundtrack pieces composed during his tenure as a film student. In fact, their name was taken from the somnambulist character - Cesare - in the 1920 German film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. It's fitting, therefore, that the title track from their previous album, Evacuation, appeared in the soundtrack for the Oscar-nominated film Half Nelson (Lakeshore Records).

Joseph White acts as producer, lead singer, and bass player. The duo's second half is keyboardist & singer Channing Sargent. "If you've seen the Somnambulants perform, no doubt you've walked away charmed by (and maybe a little smitten with) the onstage relationship between White and Channing Sargent" (Jersey Independent Music/NJ.com). Together, they've shared bills with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Tracy & the Plastics, Dirty on Purpose, Au Revoir Simone, My Favorite, Asobi Seksu, My Robot Friend, and other up-and-coming indie bands.

Founded in Brooklyn, NYC, The Somnambulants are now based in San Francisco.

Paper Trail, their third album, will be released on August 21, 2007.

VHS OR BETA - "Bring on the Comets" August 28, 2007!"
Experimental / Rock / House

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY
United States

The cover art will make an entire generation of kids who spent late nights hoping to get a peek at something naughty through a scrambled cable signal get all misty-eyed. But that might be the most nostalgic thing about Bring on the Comets, the third album by the Kentucky-based trio VHS or Beta. The group that once took its primary inspiration from dance-pop heroes, ranging from Duran Duran to Daft Punk, has toughened its sound and shifted focus from slinky beats to sullen melodies on tracks like "Can't Believe a Single Word," "The Stars Where We Came From," and the high-strung "Time Stands Still." While album highlight "Burn It All Down" proves the group can still knock out a dizzying club jam, this release is mostly a testament to its newfound ease around wailing guitars, live drums, and bearded members of My Morning Jacket. We all have to grow up sometime. --Aidin Vaziri

EMANUEL - "BLACK EARTH TIGER 08.28.07"
Rock / Alternative / Indie

LOUISVILLE,United States

Escucha su nuevo trabajo, que saldrá el 28 de este mes, en su MySpace.

Close your eyes. As you stare at the blank black walls on the back of your eyelids, open your ears. Listen as the faint reverb of guitars melds into a dark, surging melody driven by Matt Breen's aching wail on the first track of Louisville, KY's Emanuel's new record Black Earth Tiger. Follow the band through the dankest, most dangerous corners of a sonic landscape they've eschewed familiar territory for. Watch as the songs begin to play on the shaded screens of your eyelids. This is not the Emanuel you thought you knew.-Amazon.com


Su debut fue Soundtrack to a Headrush (2005)

"This is the sound that sparks the fire," sings Matt Breen on Emanuel's debut album, and it's easy to see his point. Soundtrack To A Headrush is filled with songs that immediately burn into the brain, from the rampaging guitar histrionics of "You Cannot Rape The Willing" to the measured emotional pull of "Make Tonight." The thing is, there is no specific sound to speak of - this is the kind of album that immediately sets off a game of guess the influence. Was that chord change more reminiscent of Helmet or Black Flag? Does that rhythm sound more like The (International) Noise Conspiracy or Cave In? Was that just an AC/DC riff I heard? Fortunately, the Louisville, KY band's unflinching intensity and Breen's throat-ravaging growl is distinctly its own. And sometimes that's enough to keep things ablaze. -- Aidin Vaziri

Hermanos artistas

Ayer cuando mencioné a Coconut Records, no tenía ni idea de quien era Jason Schwartzman. Este post es meramente para completar la información de este artista. Aunque muchas veces es mejor no saber tanto, porque te puedes decepcionar,verdad?

Hablando de Jason Schwartzman
Musicalmente:
-Ahora su proyecto se llama Coconut Records.
-Pero antes fue el bateria de Phantom Planet, los cuales cantan el tema central de la serie The O.C., la conocida "California"
-Y tocó la batería en dos temas del último trabajo -hasta que salga el nuevo,Ripe- de Ben Lee
Y.... su hermanito Robert, es nada más y nada menos que el cantante de Rooney, los cuales creo recordar que aparecieron en un capítulo de The O.C.

Por si no fuera eso poco, ambos hermanos también son actores. Jason salió en Rushmore y en la última de Maria Antonieta de Sofia Coppola. Y Robert salió en Princesa por sorpresa.
Y son familia de los Coppola y primos de Nicolas Cage.

Rooney ha sacado nuevo trabajo Calling the world (July 17th,2007), y aqui os dejo uno de sus videos.

If you expect to hear this Brooklyn emo/indie-pop duo's songs in breakup scenes on the WB, well, watch "One Tree Hill" and you will. Besides their TV demi-stardom, the pairing of Jarrod Gorbel and Aaron Kamstra has brought their Dashboard/Bright Eyes cross to Doghouse Records and to stages featuring Taking Back Sunday and A.C.

Su tema Summer day aparecía en la BSO de Spiderman 3.

Info gracias a Spinner.com :

Jason Schwartzman (of 'Rushmore' and Phantom Planet fame) just released a solo album under the alias Coconut Records called 'Nighttiming.' For the disc's first video, 'West Coast,' Schwartzman tapped his pal Cheryl Dunn for directorial duties and pro-skater Mark Gonzales as the subject. Since Schwartzman is currently off shooting the Ben Stiller film 'The Marc Pease Experience,' Gonzales crafted the video with rare skateboarding footage from an exhibit in Germany.

Después de un mes en el que he tenido que escuchar los mismos discos en el MP3. Tocaba por fin cambiar. Por un lado, como diría uno de los de The hours, actualmente con tanto material, uno no le presta atención a los discos tanto, no se disfrutan tanto,porque siempre hay algo nuevo que escuchar. Asi que,desde ese punto de vista, estar 4 semanas con los mismos discos, ha estado bien. Sobre todo en el caso de Air Traffic. Si tienes idea de escuchar más temas como Charlotte o I like that, la primera escucha es muy decepcionante, porque descubres que sólo esas canciones eran distintas, y el resto te hace a la idea de que la banda es una copia de Coldplay. Luego con las escuchas, descubres que hay más temas "animados", que aunque Get in line te recuerde a Living la vida loca, por su inicio y ritmo, que tanto me gusta, y luego parezca que cantan The Kooks, y luego se vuelven algo Weezer, la canción te gusta. Y las lentas, aún recordando a Coldplay o a Muse, te acaban gustando. El resto de discos que tenía eran Two Hours Traffic (un álbum de veranito, y para poner calor y buen humor a estos días no tan veraniegos), The Mary Onettes (me encantaría ir a verlos al Moby Dick), John Garrison (de la ya injustamente desaparecida Budapest), Athlete (de los cuales conocia Wires y algunas más, les presté atención el dia que en una tienda de discos vi la portada de su segundo trabajo -creo que era el 2º- y como me gustó,empecé a investigar. El nuevo trabajo supongo que será como los anteriores, de esos que, si estás en plan de escuchar algo más movido, necesita que le dediques algunas escuchar, y descubrar algunas joyitas o partes interesantes), los dos últimos de Cloud Cult, que cada vez me fascinan más, el Phages de The Most Serene Republic, cuya batería te hipnotiza, y de los que ya hablamos recientemente por aqui, porque sacarán pronto nuevo trabajo. Y también habia el energético disco de Kubichek, los variaditos Mason Proper,el último de Lifehouse, el gran Ten new messages de The rakes ... y luego muchas canciones sueltas.
A pesar de la cantidad y variedad, una ya necesitaba cambiar, y aún no habiendo mucho a mano, hoy escuchando su disco,no me arrepiento de la elección. Pensaba que Coconut Records eran muy muy tranquilillos, pero cuando he escuchado Nighttiming que da título al trabajo de Coconut... Me he quedado encantada escuchando la música de Jason Schwartzman. Desafortunadamente la primera elección de video no ha sido para este tema, pero West Coast no es mala elección y muestra otro lado de su música, y es que después de Air Traffic, me he dicho: Una sola canción no define a una banda. O por lo menos, Charlotte no define a Air Traffic, dado que el resto de temas son como Coldplay. Os dejo con West Coast. Y el tema Nighttiming podéis escucharlo en su MySpace, así como el tema This old machine.

WHY I COVERED THE ENTIRE "AGAINST ME!" ALBUM "NEW WAVE"


A couple of weeks ago I downloaded the new "Against Me!" album "New Wave". I didnt really know too much about this band but had been reading lots of good things about it, and my friend Tegan sings on it. I like to keep myself up to date with whats going on musically in the world, so I checked it out. I fell in love with the album. Really. Like, couldn't stop listening to it. As heavy and gnarly as it sounds at times, it is unmistakably a pop masterpiece. Listening to it on the way to Australia, I wondered to myself how these songs would sound acoustically.

A couple of days later I was on a flight from Sydney to Melbourne and had the thought "I'd love to cover this album." The whole thing. Beginning to end. So I did.

Anyway, here are the results. If you already know the original album, I hope these recordings shed a different light on it. If you don't know "Against Me!" and like what you hear, go check them out.

Nic Johns is the unspoken hero of this tale. He recorded, produced and mixed it and basically made my dream a reality. Hats off to him.

Hope you guys dig it.

Enjoy!

Y acabamos con Mason Proper porque se merecían un post en el blog, porque según ellos han escuchado rumores de que vienen a España y porque no todos los días una banda se marca el detallazo de dejarte escuchar todo su disco de debut. Un disco diferente a los que he escuchado últimamente, donde no les saco parecido a nadie, aunque lo tendrán. Únicamente la preciosa Life's a cornucopia recuerda mucho a Radiohead.

El tema My (bad bad) fruit sonó en el player #4-2007, y el MP3 está en el blog, asi que, sólo con que pongas Mason Proper en la búsqueda, te saldrá y lo podrás tener en tu reproductor si te apetece.Si alguien está interesado en el disco, que me mande un email a asilentroom@gmail.com y se lo paso vía emilio.
