Guillemots - The basket

Avant-gardisten Guillemots komen in april met hun derde album 'Walk the River'. Band die het experiment niet schuwt en dus in de nieuwe single The Basket lekker veel stekkers gebruikt. Na een keer luisteren al goed!

Guillemots are set to release their eagerly awaited third album, 'Walk the River' in April. First single is The Basket which by the way is great.

Baron Bane - My slow world / Orchids /


Baron Bane is een soort arty light versie van Hooverphonic and Lykke Li. Dromerige synth pop dat lekker wegluistert op nachtelijke tijdstippen. Hun nieuwe album heet LPTO.

Swedish band Baron Bane have been compared to bands and artists like Mew, Nine Inch Nails, Lykke Li and Ladytron. Their new single shows partly a new direction. My Slow World is the third single from forthcoming album LPTO.

Vivian Girls - I Heard You Say

Deze drie dames uit Brooklyn, New York zijn al weer aan hun derde album toe. Leuk dat licht tegen het valse aan gezongen sixties-stijltje.

Three girls from New York and their new vid. I like the slightly false vocals and the sixties style.

Minitel rose - Heart of stone / Another brick in the wall (Pink Floyd)


Gejaagde synths, yeah! Frans electro trio is met opmars bezig. Kwam in 2010 met het album Atlantique. Een must voor de liefhebber van stekkers. Synths zoals de Moog Voyager of DX7 geven je dat lekkere gevoel dat alles terugkomt.

"Atlantique" is a part of us. To be honest we started to work on this album in Paris, in a traditional studio with a professional engineer, but it wasn't us. I mean we didn't recognize ourself in the way to do music, it was the way for us to figure out that the place we are at when we compose have a real influence on our music. So we decided to rent a house with our own keyboards and stuffs, in a place we perfectly know and love. The place where we met each other 10 years ago: the Atlantic Ocean. The ocean was always there in our life and it's a kind of family member. And we like the idea to be on the other side of the US, which is a dream for us."

The Get Up Kids - Automatic

Deze band uit Kansas City is een tijdje uit elkaar geweest, maar timmert nu weer keihard aan de weg. Action & Action was een briljant liedje van ze, ergens in het begin van de 'zeros'. Automatic is de nieuwe single & video. Goed!

Alt/punk rock band from Kansas City disappeared for a while. Reunited and back on track now with a nice new song.

Those Dancing Days - I'll Be Yours

Al eens aandacht besteed aan deze all girl band uit Zweden in de traditie van de GoGos en Bangles. Hun nieuwe plaat heet Daydreams & Nightmares.

All girl band Those Dancing Days from Sweden reminds me of the GoGos. This new song is taken from the second album Daydreams & Nightmares.

Wye Oak - Civilian


Laat ze vooral geen modeshow lopen. Nurdy stel zingt over relaties. Kruipt na een aantal draaibeurten onder je huid.

"Earnest folk-influenced indie rock with touches of noise and dream pop"

The Black Rabbits - Hypno switch


Lekker rechtdoor gitaargeluid. I like. Hun debuutalbum is uit. Uit Orlando dit indie rockbandje.

The Miami New Times writes, "There's a feel-good, timeless bounce to the songs that should appeal to Boomer parents as much as twentysomethings in Converse."

IVienna - Exertion (free download)


Nieuwe band uit Londen komt met een mooie track tevoorschijnschitteren. Opgenomen in de Abbey Road studio. Melodieus, coldplaydiaans, bijzonder. Maakt nieuwsgierig naar meer.

New UK act called IVienna. They trade in haunting verses and huge, anthemic choruses, all topped off with a frontman with a great voice. They've just recorded some tracks at the legendary Abbey Road studio in london, one of which is now up that you can check out.

Foster the people - Houdini / Pumped up kicks


Doet je even denken aan MGMT. Maar dat is een compliment. Hun EP Startime zwerft over het net. Uit LA en klaar voor meer. Gaan we nog veel van horen in 2011. Pumped up kicks werd een hit in Australië.

The peppy, poppy, undeniably crush-worthy band from the west coast that brought you "Pumped Up Kicks" have come back today.

Foo Fighters - White Limo

Motörhead-frontman Lemmy is de hoofdrolspeler in de nieuwe video van Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl en Lemmy kennen elkaar natuurlijk van het 'project' Probot. White Limo is een lekker smerig vuig hard liedje zoals we dat van de Foos kennen....

Forgotten gem: Shuggie Otis - Aht Uh Mi Hed / Sparkle city / Purple

Ben al een tijdje verslaafd aan alle opnamen van Shuggie Otis. Shuggie was al Purple way before Prince. Hij speelde al op zijn 12e gigs en op alle 3 de LP's speelde hij bijna alles zelf in. Een collega blogger schreef de bijsluiter van mijn Otis verslaving:

As a teenager, Shuggie was acknowledged as a guitar phenom, mentioned by some in the same breath as Jimi Hendrix and B.B. King. But he wasn't satisfied to be just a guitarist - he mastered bass, keyboards, drums and vibraphone. He also became a gifted writer and arranger. Shuggie started playing professionally at the age of 12, using disguises to appear older (phony beards & moustaches, dark glasses, hats, elevator shoes, etc.) so he could get into nightclubs. When he was 15, he was drafted by Al Kooper to be part of the second "Super Session" album (this was Kooper's project after he founded Blood Sweat & Tears and completed the first album). Shuggie released his first album as a leader in 1970, called Here Comes Shuggie Otis - he was around 17 at the time. In 1971, he released "Freedon Flight," an album that was way ahead of its time - and in 1974, he released "Inspiration Information," his masterpiece. And that was really it - he started to fade as a bandleader/solo artist and and basically disapeared by 1980. He is still alive and well, hip hop artists and others are covering his fanastic tunes (remember Strawberry Letter 23 by Brothers Johnson? That is Shuggie's tune).

Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder, Prince and other trippy/funky/soulful genre-mixers owe a lot to Shuggie Otis. I often think that Prince deliberately copped all of Shuggie's shit. The Rolling Stones tried to hire this guy in the mid-70's, but he said "no, thanks" because he figured he was going to rock the world on his own. Things didn't turn out that way, but his music stands the test of time - still sounding exciting and fresh 35 years after it was recorded. Shuggie used drum machines in the early 1970's; he played almost all of the instruments on his albums, he incorporated jazz, blues, rock and R&B. It still is wickedly great stuff.
I think Shuggie Otis is still living in Northern California. He records on occassion and has played a few concerts. While he missed stardom and celebrity, he also missed the drugged-out evil scene, so he is alive when many other pop stars died before they reached 50 - freethoughts.blogspot.com

The Twilight Singers - On the corner


Songwriter Greg Dulli zat in een dalletje maar komt terug met Dynamite Steps. Dit is het vijfde album van deze mannen. Band uit Cincinnati komt op 1 april naar Paradiso. Geen grap.

Rising to fame as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs during the 80's & 90's; Greg Dulli followed his muse and began to innovatively fuse indie, soul and electronic sounds in his post-Whigs collective The Twilight Singers, who released their first album, Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers, in 2000.

Brother - Darling Buds Of May

90's Britpop in optima forma. Het mag (nog steeds). Brother is alweer zo'n gehypte band, maar wie weet maken ze het waar. Lekker nummer in ieder geval.

Brother is 90's Britpop in both sound and image. Hyped by the British press (NME in particular). Maybe they'll make it. Darling Buds Of May is a good song.

Australie. Adelaide. Nog mooier. Lowrider heeft een album uit dat Europa binnensijpelt via het net. Round the world. Met het juiste soul orgeltje en een lekkere funky hook.

Blending a hip hop sensibility with soul and funk influences and plenty of 90’s R&B, Round The World hits you square in the throat with it’s bombastic bass lines, brash brass and wailing organ.
