Loney Dear

Por lo visto no lo habia mencionado antes por el blog, sólo una vez su canción "I am John" (CD "Loney Noir" 2007), en una tarde de domingo en la que me puse a bucear en el Music.Download.com. Y lo llamaba no sé por qué LoneLy Dear, jaja, ole yo.

Editor's review -Music.Download.com

Swedish indie rocker Emil Svanangen is the singer-songwriter behind the sugar-coated sounds flowing from the band Loney, Dear. Imagine the sensitivity of Nick Drake fused with the jaunty upbeatness of some totally '80s rock. Supersweet and very Swedish (they know their rock'n'roll

Biography

Emil Svanangen is the frequent recorder and songwriter, most of the time on his own. On the other hand, what would it be without Samuel Starck keyboards, Malin Stahlberg singing and tambourining, Ola Hultgren drumming and David Lindvall playing bass.

Canciones para ti

Middle Distance Runner, "The Sun & Earth" MP3

"The Sun & Earth", relates two different seasons of love. With heavy drums and an ambient opening, verse one finds a plea for love to return home in the cold of winter. But when the Summer's breeze begins to thaw out the atmosphere, it becomes clear that love has no intention of making a return appearance. Thoughts of optimism are now replaced with stark realities and it's time to move on. -Filter-Mag.com

Santogold se cambia el nombre a Santigold

Volvemos con la información de hace unos días sobre publicidad (Post anterior/Previous post), ya que el nuevo anuncio de Trident Senses ("Libera tu lado senses") ha sido subido al YouTube,aunque sea en su versión portuguesa.



La canción es como dije "Lights out" (Tampoco era muy difícil para mi, porque la tengo de "politono" para un grupo de mi agenda)
Y añadimos algo importante, Santogold ya no se hace llamar asi, sino Santigold. Lo vi el otro día y pensaba que era un error,pero no, hay un motivo para ello.

http://trueculture.wordpress.com/2009/02/18/santogold-now-goes-by-santigold/

Santogold now goes by just Santigold


santogold-now-santigoldIt’s not some sexually ambigous symbol or some weird spelling, but Santogold has changed her name to simply Santigold. Born Santi White, the artist took on the name Santogold which happened to be shared with an actor/infomercial character who has made a living selling gold chains and making obscure songs since ‘83. The gold chain wearing, infomercial making extraordinaire subsequently sued the artist formerly known as Santogold last year. Here’s Santigold’s official press release:

“Change the graffiti on the bathroom wall, get your tattoo fixed, get your t-shirt airbrushed and change the name on your year end list- Santogold is now Santigold. She’s not telling you why, that’s just how it is. No unpronounceable symbol, no numbers where they shouldn’t be, no random capitalization, just plain ass Santigold so remember that.”

Gringo Star

Vamos con la banda pendiente de postear, la descubrí gracias a Jay Orlaski de Wildlife Foundation Press. Cuando me llegó el disco también me llegaron otros de los cuales hemos hablado. En esos días, el que más me gustó fue el de los alemanes Saboteur. Pero estas últimas semanas escuchando a The Jeunes y ahora a Gringo Star, he de decir que también me ha gustado bastante sus propuestas musicales.

Info recogida en ThreeImaginaryGirls:


After changing their name (from Au-Fir-Ju Well), Gringo Star decided to rework old songs and put them out on a six track, self-produced ep. Well-known about the Atlanta, Georgia scene, Gringo Star has recently focused its attention on the rest of the nation with a steady diet of touring.

I have to admit to being a little distracted by the pictures on their cd insert. These dudes are hot, in a kind of soft private school boy way. With moppy, unwashed hair and button up shirts they look like pin up boys from the late 60s. If I was twelve, I most likely would have blown up their pictures to post to my wall, an aid to fantasies of a world where boys are this pretty.

Influenced by the Kinks and the Animals, Gringo Star shows real rock promise with tight music and vocal variety. The jazzy piano on “No Man” is burlesque, fighting with vocals that follow the bass. Esmerelda is a delicious DeVotcka like ditty with a little surf style drums and guitars. The accordion has the most character here, and nicely compliments the lyrics about a beautifully devout woman. Wistfully, I can imagine that an entire album of Esmereldas would have gotten prize pole position on my ipod.

I look forward to a full length from Gringo Star, which provided they have someone else pick the ordering of songs, will be interesting and delightful. I would also love to see these guys on tour with someone like San Francisco’s Diego’s Umbrella. Not only would it be a night full of eye candy, but I think it would also be a lot of finger clacking and skirt twirling.

Review
With their excellent debut album, All Y'all, this Atlanta garage-rock band validate the CMJ buzz. --Spin.com

Review
This Atlanta, Georgia foursome add layers of rural lilt to their Brit-ish pop, garagey grit to others, while sneaking out slight-psych guitar blasts and gang yalps when least expected. If not the wheel rebooted, their self-titled full-length on My Anxious Mouth is stunningly seasoned for a debut. --CMJ.com

Review
A tapestry of jangly guitar and multi-part vocal harmonies, and ranges from psychedelia to garage rock to surf pop. A bit off-kilter and more than a little charming, it's Atlanta pop at its best and communicates as well as any recording could what it's like to see the band live. No song better represents the band than the title track (and first single), 'All Y'all': It's anthemic, hook-filled and catchy as hell --Paste

Product Description
By condensing a palate of swirling and innovative guitar voyages and a sweat-soaked baroque punk ethos that loses itself in carpet-crawling majesty, Gringo Star has emerged as Atlanta s favorite rock and roll sons. Brothers Nick and Pete Furgiuele, along with Pete DeLorenzo and Matt McCalvin have continually built momentum, crisscrossing the country and honing their chops on rock and roll s frontline. Crafting an art-damaged and intense presence, the group s sound falls somewhere between The Animals, Motown and The Kinks. In person, the group s soft-spoken demeanor instills a sense of alluring mystery, but on stage, Gringo Star explode. Never ones to hang on to the same instruments for too long, each member of the group sprints and hurdles from station to station, swapping out guitar for bass for drums for voice, keyboard for accordion, kazoo for tambourine. As a result, the band s multifaceted musicianship culminates in dense and cerebral rock mantras that are hard-wired to the head and heart.

Youth Group, All This Will Pass MP3
by Staff | 02.02.2009

If melodic indie rock is your go-to player, then Aussie foursome, Youth Group, are definitely your winning team. Their new record, The Night is Ours, was recorded in an 1920's abandoned mess hall on Sydney's harbor. In their pop-up studio with no neighbors for miles, they carefully crafted a polished assortment of songs that speak from a genuine sense of isolation.

Lead single, "All This Will Pass", tells the story of a well faulted man. As he searches for forgiveness, he finds strength in knowing that while no one is perfect, all we can hope for is the patience for change. Over a beautiful bed of guitars and lead singer Toby Martin's soaring vocals, it's a message we can all relate to, no matter what our anatomy may be.

Oren Lavie -"Her morning elegance" VIDEO

Fue a mediados de Abril del 2008 cuando lo descubrí, gracias a Music.Download.com. Pero como otros tantos artistas quedo pendiente de postear. Y se me acabó olvidando hasta su nombre. Hasta que hará una semana ojeando el gran blog sobre anuncios publicitarios, tvspot.blogspot.com, volví a reencontrarme con Oren Lavie, y ahora ya nunca se me olvidará porque me he quedado prendada de su maravillosa canción "Her morning elgance" y del deliciosísimo video grabado en el estilo Stop-Motion.

Editor's review (Music.Download.com):

The folk-pop songman is blessed--no other word for it--with an ideally burnished voice; it's Nick Drake without the deep melancholy, John Mayer sans the cringe-worthy metaphors. Add to that a real feel for heartbreak songcraft, and the mix is beyond reproach.

Bio en Music.Download.com

Bio en su MySpace:

Oren Lavie is a songwriter of curly brown hair, whisperish voice, green eyes and suspiciously cold feet. He was born in 1976, two minutes behind schedule, and has been trying to catch up ever since.

In 2007 Oren's debut album, THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE SEA, was released in Europe. If you happen to live in that particular continent - buy it around the corner, behind the bakery and next to the flower shop.

In January 2008 Oren has started his own label in the US, named it, then renamed it, changed it again and finally decided to call it A Quarter Past Wonderful. He then released the album on i-tunes US.
Later in the month the album has been featured on the i-tunes Singer/Songwriter Spotlight, after which it auspiciously climbed to No. 30 on the charts.
Shortly after that, the album track 'Her Morning Elegance' was chosen to feature on a US Chevrolet TV commercial. The aforementioned author, who has never owned a car in his life, and who has diligently ignored the invention of Television, could not stop giggling for days.
With a song in his heart he continues to take the bus.

A full physical US release of THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE SEA is planned for later, somewhere between a little later and quite-considerably-later, depending on a series of ever changing factors of mysterious nature.

THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE SEA album was written and produced by Oren Lavie, and recorded in his Berlin apartment throughout a period of 3 years.

"Lavie's debut album is breathy and a little precious, pitting his sweet, smoky voice against a backdrop of light jazz and choppy Nyman-esque strings. The whole is cinematic and mellow, like Nick Drake in a cheerful summer bonnet" --Uncut

Product Description
If you have the feeling you've heard this Berlin-based songwriter's music before, you have. iTunes featured the album on their Singer/Songwriter Spotlight. Chevrolet licensed "Her Morning Elegance" in an uber cool Chevy Malibu commercial and Ophrah's O Magazine will feature the album in the October issue.

It's Not Me, It's You, is the follow-up to Lily Allen's critically acclaimed 2007 debut, Alright, Still. The album finds Lily in top form, creating a record Blender's recent "In The Studio" feature described as "part God, part country and all middle finger." Allen wrote and recorded the album's 12 songs with producer Greg Kurstin (the bird and the bee), who worked with her on three songs for Alright, Still - "Everything's Just Wonderful," "Alfie" and "Not Big."

On It's Not Me, It's You, Lily's characteristically sharp observations find expression in a variety of musical styles, with influences ranging from the Jazz Era to country and western to dance music. "Highlights include `Everyone's at It,' a synth-pop song about prescription drugs that features Allen on xylophone; `He Wasn't There,' which matches emotional lyrics about her absent father to a jazz groove; and `Not Fair,' a saucy country song about an inadequate lover," said Rolling Stone.

"We decided to try and make bigger sounding, more ethereal songs, real songs," says Lily, who will be touring the U.S. in the spring. "I wanted to work with one person from start to finish to make it one body of work. I wanted it to feel like it had some sort of integrity. I think I've grown up a bit as a person and I hope it reflects that."

Bio en su web


11th January 2009
As many of you know, Shake Some Action grew out of a band called the Jeunes. Many of the songs from the first SSA record had been played by the Jeunes. The Jeunes were a little edgier than SSA, some would say a little darker. Some of those darker songs didn't suit SSA so they were left alone. But last year I revisited the Jeunes tapes and I liked what I heard. Songs were remixed, remastered and in some cases edited together from various alternate sources.

Fast forward a few months and a new Jeunes full length record is now available.
