- Shore Leave
Info thx to ThePassionOfIndieMusic:
The band name is long. And anything other than pop. But it's no wonder when you compare it with eternity wishes. The intention, the same threshold has been exceeded in the band name and the present 10 songs of elegiac debut album by The Band On The Edge Of Forever dejected. The use of the 4 young men in Berlin and lead singer for the practicing internist Volker Neumann primarily a remedy: The Journey to the Interior. The music soundtrack and nourishes the hope of all the borders to be able to blow up if you want to close your eyes and listen. Go on a Holiday ... and you might find what you had in mind Take the fast lane where the sun always shines You don t have to compromise go simply close your eyes it s way much faster, faster than you recognize ... the speed of light ... I do it all the time it is in Holiday, a song until the end of his playing time his true significance is low. Close your eyes, listen, dare to travel.
They consistently deny the instrumented songs just the ubiquitous pop-song arrangements, which at 3 minutes 30 ever the same again. This ensures that the journey is always new images before Zugfenster appear in the head. Volker Neumann Storytelling offers over the length of individual pieces of the album and a convincing arc voltage on. The first single, Shore Leave what something means leave the country as heralding the great ride and is consequently also the opening track. Those on a succinct theme piano-based ballad goes easy on the ear and has the band in some breathtaking speed doors open: The Hitsongschreiber Nosi Katzmann has them on his label gesigned, producer Tobias Siebert (Slut, Kettcar, Tomte, Klez.E) has some title of her album and produced the radio play the song in the day program. It also does not fare too light: Here is the pain of a lost childhood weggeträumt. How well it just goes.
The video shown in the miniature world underscores the desire for a perfect world, a past from which one is locked out forever. But it remains to flee into the art, where everything is possible. Changeling is a vibrant ironic sideswipe at the turn necks, which streamlined their way, and clearly not feeling the wavelength of the band application. We are therefore perfectly fortified dreamers to do. On the concert stage is The Band On The Edge Of Forever no longer an unknown quantity: The band MIA in three cities on their sold-out hall tour supports her debut album and the first time such a large audience. Then follow a tour of the band through Germany as well as several festival dates in summer. The future: The year 2009 will be a great for TBOTEOF. Whatever. Four young men have with the help of friends and companions is a wonderful first album released. No matter how it is the echo. They are happy, we are happy. And the foundation for more great music from the house of The Band On The Edge Of Forever is given. Close your eyes and you will see.

Sonará esta noche en House, en el capítulo 5x20 llamado "Simple explanation".
I’m taking a ride off to one side
It is a personal thing.
When I can’t stand
Up in this cage I’m not regretting.
I don’t need a better thing,
I’d settle for less,
It’s another thing for me,
I just have to wander through this world
Stop before you fall
Into the hole that I have dug here,
Rest even as you
Are starting to feel the way I used to,
I don’t need a better thing
(Just to sound confused)
Don’t talk about everyone,
I am not amused by you.
I’m gonna lose you,
Yeah I’m gonna lose you
If I’m gonna lose you,
I’m gonna lose you,
Yeah I’m gonna lose you
If I’m gonna lose you
I’ll lose you now for good

In 2006, Cyril Douay decided to form an electro-rock band : "The Chase". This project arises from a collaboration with a totally crazy Parisian singer, Stephane Deal, who is also actor and puppeteer. These two musicians, used to producing and playing songs, wanted to get back to rock energy and primal instinct : dance and trance. Pop/Rock featurings such as Mathis and the Mathematics, DM TSI- sang some of The Chase compositions.
The stage concept evolved gradually and the band was augmented by a veejay, Fred Ladoue, author of the show "Les projectionnistes". He creates live animations during the concerts with figurines, objects and mini cameras moving on the waves of The Chase. The whole concept makes The Chase show a good fun and amazing experience.

Info por Dangerbird Records:
Ok Okay, La Rocca’s second album (Dangerbird, Sept. 30), marks a quantum leap for the L.A.-based, three-quarters Irish quartet. Subtly but powerfully, its 11 songs substantiate the immense promise of their first full-length, 2006’s The Truth, which Ireland’s Hot Press hailed as “a near-perfectly formed debut from a tight and talented band with a serious future ahead of them.” This is the vibrant sound of a band that has located its true identity through a half decade of hard work and an abiding belief that they were on their way to something worth achieving. “Before,” says singer, guitarist and songwriter Bjorn Baillie, “we were so concerned with everything being spot-on and intricate. This time it was, ‘Let’s just roll the tape and go for it.”
During their years together, Baillie (who may well be the only native Irishman with that given name; his mother was born in Norway) and his cohorts—bassist/singer Simon Baillie (who’s two years older than his brother), drummer Alan Redmond and keyboardist/singer Nick Haworth—have journeyed from Cardiff, Wales, where they formed, to Dublin and then to London before emigrating to Los Angeles in the summer of 2005.
“After three years here, we’ve settled a bit,” says Bjorn. “I don’t go, ‘Wow, I live in Los Angeles!’ anymore. We made the first record very much in that spirit; it documents our move to America and reflects the bands and albums we like. We tried to make the first one a cool record, but this one is more natural and easygoing. You can listen to it straight through, and it careers along nicely. The title, Ok Okay, is like the two sides of a conversation, or an argument. There’s a contrast all the way through, going back and forth, trying to arrive at the right outcome. A lot of it is stuff that you can sing about but not talk about.”
“Bjorn has a tendency to write songs that feel uplifting but are actually about sad things,” says Simon on the way to describing the group’s creative process. “It starts with Bjorn coming to us with a song and mutates from there. Once he plays it for us, it isn’t just his song anymore; when we work it up and play it together, it becomes our song. We all want the best for every song.”
They wanted it, and they got it. Recorded at the tail end of last year in Austin Texas, Ok Okay was produced, engineered and mixed by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, And You’ll Know Us by the Trail of Dead) at his own America…I Love You Studio. Tracked live off the floor the old-fashioned way, to analog tape through vintage gear, the record sounds very much in the moment—visceral, richly textured and pulsing with urgency.
“I think we got him at the right time,” Bjorn says of McCarthy. “I suspect he’s gonna keep on moving up, and he’s already built up a great CV. We were lucky to work with him. It was a great experience. Mike got right to the point with the songs, and he worked very quickly, which is the way we like to do it. This album is about the songs, so the vocal is very much the lead instrument, and he made the vocals sound great, as well as bass and drums. He also gave everything a bit of a twist; I like that it isn’t standard.”
The lone outside player is cellist Sarah Nelson, whose elegant playing decorates the intimate romantic idyll “Paris.” It’s Nelson’s laughing voice that opens the album, as she says “OK,” aptly enough, to playing the bowed D note on her cello that introduces opening track “Argument Never One.” And with that, they’re off to the races.
“Argument Never One” embeds the album’s central theme—the ongoing struggle of individuals to see eye to eye and find common ground in a world constantly in flux—into the charged atmosphere of a widescreen anthem powered by ringing guitars and rousing three-part harmonies surrounding an urgent lead vocal. “The album starts with that song because the whole album is like an argument back and forth,” says Bjorn before adding with a laugh, “but done to nice music.”
The following “Senses” and “Control” comprise what Bjorn states is “very much the center of the album” in the thematic sense. Amid the pastoral lilt of acoustic guitars and piano, Bjorn sings the first half of the song at the very top of his register, the second half an octave lower, suggesting an inner dialogue that coheres in the final moments with a double-tracked merger of the high and the low vocal parts. Right there, Bjorn introduces the psychological force field that threads through the album as a whole.
The chorus of “Control” ratchets up the intensity, coming across with the insistence of a warning and the conviction of a hard-earned insight, as Bjorn sings, “When you give control to someone else/You never get to feel it for yourself.”
“‘Senses’ and ‘Control’ are about trying to work out exactly what you should give over to other people and sharing responsibility,” Bjorn explains. “I meant the chorus lyric, ‘Everybody’s senses will change/As everybody senses a change,’ in the sense that another year’s gone by and more stuff’s come into your life. Like those lines in ‘Senses’—‘I’m slipping down the glass, the feet that walked me in here are like two ropes around a mast..’ That sums up the album in one song. There’s definitely a thread through them all; it’s very romantic in places.”
The tone may be melancholy at times, but Ok Okay is at heart a life-affirming album, charting the ups and downs of everyday life in a readily relatable way. Bjorn describes the songs as ‘like a series of little worries, but nothing that’s beating me down. They’re not major, but they’re ongoing. I think the record is quite optimistic. ‘Half Speed,’ for example, is about the realization that you don’t have to run so fast anymore, that you’ve become content with your lot. It’s that kind of thing, not life and death.”
The undercurrent of tension that runs through the first half of the album is thrillingly released at midpoint by “Ballad of Arizona,” inspired by footage of Dylan and the Hawks on their storied 1966 tour of the U.K. This storming old-school rave-up boasts a flood of madcap Dylanesque imagery, topped off by a wailing harmonica. As with its model, “The piano’s pounding away, and you just hold onto your hats, basically,” Bjorn says with satisfaction. “The first half of the album is relatively straightforward, but after ‘Ballad of Arizona,’ it gets deeper. It becomes more like ‘We Can Work It Out,’ when Lennon sings the low bits and the mood changes.”
Bjorn isn’t speaking abstractly about the Beatles song. On “My Mean So Much,” which introduces the knotty second half, Simon’s chorus harmony unfurls beneath Bjorn’s melody line, Lennon-style, and it’s a resonant blend indeed, as those tight harmonies bring the album one of its musical and emotional peaks. Then comes “Sing Her Song,” another breathtaking anthem, this one deeply romantic, if lyrically mysterious. The mood continues to deepen until the final “Roadway Hymn,” which puts the band’s continuing journey in perspective. “And I’m on the roadway, facing heaven one way,” Bjorn sings. “Turn around and work it out/Darling, what I’m headed for.” Following a couple of minutes of silence—a silence that itself feels emotionally charged—comes the dusky hidden track “Love Under Key,” providing a poignant coda to an enthralling album.
“As musicians, you want to keep getting better, keep on pushing yourselves,” says Simon. “We’ve had high aspirations since we started; it’s just been a matter of trying to get what we hear in our head to translate. We’ve all grown as musicians, and this album feels cohesive and whole; I think it’s the best record we could’ve made at this point in the band’s career.”
La Rocca took its name from a dive in Bristol, primarily because “It had the greatest-looking neon sign I’ve ever seen above the doorway,” says Bjorn. With this memorable album, La Rocca’s name is now lit up brightly as well, as this scrappy crew cruises toward its date with destiny.
Produced and mixed by Mike McCarthy.

Battling Giants is not only this week's Radio 2 Album of the Week, but also features some stellar performances from Jamie's friends Joss Stone (on Stalemate) and Jason Mraz (on Battling Giants). The first single taken from the new album was the incredibly infectious 'Apologise', co-written with Natalie Imbruglia , check the video for it out below.
Info recogida en Last.fm:
Ben’s Brother es una desconocida banda de Londres liderada por Jamie Hartman que acaba de debutar con un a priori fenomenal disco. Recalcamos el a priori porque el quinteto suena como un cruce imposible entre Rod Stewart, esa voz del comienzo del álbum en Rise, single de adelanto, muy próxima a la del escocés, o la de Live, y James Blunt, esas baladas con piano muy soul como Bad dream o God by another name y esos medios tiempos como Let me out.

PAPER ROUTE:://:: (as told by Chad Howat) I was tired. There was just this lingering sense of exhaustion in the summer of 2004. I was tired of false starts. Tired of dreaming. Tired of being jaded. Tired of being tired. So it seems fitting that this story begins underneath my bed. You may picture me crawling below my mattress, but in reality my bed is about 6 feet above the ground-enough space for a small iBook and some cheap monitors. When I couldn't sleep, I'd descend my steps and make music all night. Some bands have LSD, others have cocaine, and our drug of choice seemed to be insomnia. I programmed, played bass, synths and even snuck into an undisclosed location masquerading as a music student to record piano. JT Daly, a close friend and old band mate, started coming over to sing, sample, and play toy keyboards. We had always wanted to do a project together and finally it was becoming a reality. After a month or so went by, Andy Smith, another close friend and ex-band mate who lives above me, started coming downstairs and contributing vocals, guitar, harmonica, and some synths. A band had naturally formed between the three of us and we were making music together, once again.
After releasing two EP’s, we began preparing to perform the songs live. Long time friend and drummer Gavin McDonald joined us and we played shows across the North East and Mid-Western states. We recorded bits and pieces and released what we thought was the best. We spent far too much time working and not enough time with our loved ones. We read as much as we could and wrote more.
So its 2009 and these EP’s are what we have to show for the sleepless nights. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we’ve enjoyed creating them.

Es un tema de esos que podía incluir en mis temas "trallazo", no está nada mal, aunque el inicio recuerda algo a U2,no? Escuchadlo!
Mix The Music’s indie-dance tunes, Oasis’s brazen attitude, Jet’s urgency and Kelly Jones’ gloriously dragged out vocal and you’d have the sonic bomb that is Exile Parade. Full of pounding drums and lethal rock ‘n’ roll riffs, their single ‘Heart Into Suicide’ fair oozes vigour and savoir-faire.
All raw and boisterous, the British five-piece have here blended Seventies rock, Brit-Pop and post-punk to create music that socks you full in the face. This addictively chorused track has been given away via the band’s MySpace, clocking up some 40,000 hits and counting.
No wonder then that uber-producer Owen Morris [The Verve, Oasis] has already been working with them. Best catch them now, whilst they’re playing the more intimate venues, for if this single’s anything to go by, Exile Parade are destined to detonate into the big time. Virginia Arroyo

You better move on
You're walking in circles
You better move on
You're walking in tiny circles
But now it is too late
There's way too much pressure
We both lost that little faith
So move on
You better move on
You're walking down in circles
You better move on
You're walking in tiny circles
But now it is too late
There's way too much pressure
We both lost that little faith
So move on
Nothing feels the same as it did
Enter this old game
You've got to learn to love yourself
And move on

THE KICK - FREAK
*directed by Frida Sjöstam.
Info en su MySpace:
The Kick released their debut single 'Dancer' last winter; a track full of broken disco beats and decadent undertones. Ever since then they've been working towards their debut album. But the tension is insufferable and we can't wait any longer!! So another single will hit the streets on the 22nd of September - 'My Darkest Hour', an intense and altogether darker story, but at the same time rockier and with more of a bang!
The video was shot on a dark summer evening in the middle of Sweden... A boat races forward in the twilight, a woman's dead body floats gently on the shoreline, a group of suspicious characters are occupied with something strange and unclear, and the evening feels peculiar and disturbing... see it now at www.myspace.com/thekicksweden
The Kick is David Sunqvists solo project but he's definitely no newcomer. David has previously played with among others elektro-glam rockers Elasmo, Fireline Angels (with Sarah Assbring a.k.a. El Perro Del Mar) and Kitty Jutbring (of Kitty & The K). But now he's out there on his own, as The Kick!

Pop / Lounge / Tropical
Info recogida en su MySpace:
"Tienen las canciones de JUAN RIVAS, la música y los textos, ese aire cotidiano y amable de quienes gustan de los placeres pequeños, las alegrías a ras de tierra y los ojos abiertos de constante sorpresa ante el (agri)dulce paso de los días."
Desde este 20 de abril "Superdiscotropical" será la noticia de portada en la conocida red social Myspace España y Myspace México, en descarga directa desde ambas webs.
JUAN RIVAS regresa con un trabajo donde imprime su sello más característico: la atemporalidad. Próximo al espíritu del Lounge o el Easy Listening, influido por el mejor jazz de la costa Oeste, la Bossa Nova o los nuevos ritmos electrónicos como el House, el Drum&Bass o el Disco, nace “Superdiscotropical”.
Un trabajo donde destaca la presencia de unos invitados de excepción como Joao Parahyba - Trio Mocotó (Brazil), Jose Luis Pardo - Amigos invisibles (NY), Arturo – Electrocugat (Barcelona), Juan José López (Argentina), Modular (Argentina) o Peón Kurtz - Def con dos (Vigo).
“Superdiscotropical” es un cóctel perfecto entre las influencias musicales más sibaritas de décadas pasadas, sin dejar atrás el fresco aire pop que ha cultivado durante toda su carrera.
"Así las cosas, el resultado final de “Superdiscotropical”, debe tanto a Esquivel como a Golpes Bajos, a Barry White como a Augusto Algueró”.
"No cuesta imaginar a Morrisey acompañado al piano por Jobim o los paisajes sonoros de una pelicula de Dean Martin.” “Absolutamente genuíno y único en su especie."
“Ideal para acompañar tu Martini o fiesta en casa.”
“Repertorio retrofuturista de un exquisito compositor de canciones pensadas para tararear sus adhesivos estribillos."
“Tan apasionado como Pizzicato Five o la banda sonora de ‘Love boat’.”
“Divertidos textos inteligentes entre lo cotidiano y el realismo mágico."
