Kitty, Daisy & Lewis - Messing with my life

De zusjes en broertje hebben een ronkend bandje waardoor de track stevig overeind blijft. Blijvertje is het album: Smoking in heaven. Opgenomen thuis in Londen bij pa in de studio zoals platen in de jaren 50 platen werden opgenomen.

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis’ performances have been blowing away and inspiring audiences, building up an impressive fan base from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Chris Martin and Eagles Of Death Metal to Dustin Hoffman and Ewan McGregor.

Portugal. The Man - Sleep Forever/Got It All (This Can't Be Living Now)

Both great, and I mean great, songs taken from the new album 'In The Mountain In The Cloud'.

Fink - Yesterday Was Hard On All Of Us

It could go either way with Fin Greenall AKA Fink. DJ or singer-songwriter, or both. Yesterday was hard on all of us is his 'softer' side. Nice song.

Kasabian - Switchblade Smiles

New Kasabian single kicks ass: Switchblade Smiles. Rockfunkelektro.

Elke zondag trek ik een LP uit mijn platenkast. Een plaat die nooit meer uit mijn leven mag. Deze plaat heeft mijn ziel van begin tot eind geraakt. Vooral de tekst A perfect love was en is raak.

Every sunday one Golden Cratedigger Albumtip on Earbiter that needs your attention. Only the past helps you to put the new stuff into perspective. This week: Through the eyes of love - Ray Charles (1972).

Get to know Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004):

I was born with music inside me. That's the only explanation I know of, since none of my relatives could sing or play an instrument. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me — like food or water.

I know that men ain't supposed to cry, but I think that's wrong. Crying's always been a way for me to get things out which are buried deep, deep down. When I sing, I often cry. Crying is feeling, and feeling is being human.

Affluence separates people. Poverty knits 'em together. You got some sugar and I don't; I borrow some of yours. Next month you might not have any flour; well, I'll give you some of mine. That's how my band made it. We swam through a lot of shit together, we swallowed a lot of pride, but we managed to do what we needed to do.

Women anchor me. They're there when I need them. They're sensitive to me, and I'm sensitive to them. I'm not saying I've loved that many women. Love is a special word, and I use it only when I mean it. You say the word too much and it becomes cheap. But sex is something else. I'm not sure that there can ever be too much sex. To me, it's another one of our daily requirements — like eating. If I go twenty-four hours without it, I get hungry. Sex needs to be open and fun, free and happy. It's whatever you make it, and I try my hardest to create situations where me and my woman can enjoy ourselves — all of ourselves — without our inhibitions getting in the way. You got to set your mind right and the rest will come to you naturally. No restrictions, no hang-ups, no stupid rules, no formalities, no forbidden fruit — just everyone getting and giving as much as he and she can.

Music is nothing separate from me. It is me. I can't retire from music any more than I can retire from my liver. You'd have to remove the music from me surgically — like you were taking out my appendix.

Ray Charles is the only genius in our business - Frank Sinatra, as quoted in LIFE magazine (July 1966).

The Kooks - The saboteur

The Kooks new song 'The Saboteur'. Beatlesque/sixtyish song that is not included on the forthcoming 3rd album 'Junk of the heart. Click the Like-button. I just did!

Bottin, Francisco & Rodion - BFR (Space)

We need a lot of space. Daar kan ik mij wel in vinden. Lekker nu disco nummer met lichte funky Prince invloeden. Een onweerstaanbaar gitaartje. Over Prince gesproken. Nog twee weken slapen.

Great Nu disco track with a slight funky Prince touch. Controversy?

Clock Opera - Belongings

Prachtig opgebouwd liedje van het Londense Clock Opera. Dit kan wel eens groot worden.

London band Clock Opera is making me happy with this sublimely built up song. This might be this years band to watch. Lovely.

Tim Knol - Shallow water

Moest er een keer van komen. Tim Knol heeft een prachtig album afgeleverd. Losser in de schouders. Lekker. Vind dit wel het beste nummer van het album Days

Great singer. Tim Knol. Dutch. Getting bigger al the time.

Big Talk - Getaways

Big Talk is veel electro en veel Killers, maar dat is helemaal niet vreemd: het gaat hier namelijk om het zijproject van Killers-drummer Ronnie Vannucci jr. Een soort Ronnie without Killers eigenlijk, want de sound is exact hetzelfde.

Solo project of Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci jr. But the Killers sound is still there.
