Giu 12 2009, 16:05 di susstudio_xI'm probably missing loads here, but I'll add to it as memories come back. Oh, and I have even included the really embarrassing ones here too. Feel free to point and laugh...
Teletubbies (told you I was adding the really embarrassing ones...)
The Noise Next Door
The Sheilas (AKA the girls in pink from the Sheilas Wheels adverts...)
Girls Can't Catch
Pearl And The Puppets

Dic 24 2008, 13:09 di Orange_Anubis50. Fleet Foxes – Fleet Foxes
Ah the shimmering loveliness of being lost in a misty mountain forest; pawed at by bears and covered by damp leaves. Also – a rare album that I could enjoy myself AND buy as a birthday present for my dad.
49. Calexico – Carried To Dust
I didn’t get on with the soft-rock bias of their last album, so it was exciting to put this on and find they’d rediscovered their Mexicana.
48. Nas – Untitled
A thoughtful album, this, and though it takes racial identity as a theme, it’s got enough wit to overcome any potential preachiness. The music's drenched in old school strings and brass, peaking early on should-have-been-a-hit Hero, where the low trombones parp away dramatically under a big-beat and soary-synth clamour.
47. MGMT – Oracular Spectacular
These skewed and squiggly songs from the MGMT boys got under my skin well enough. In The Youth, they even managed to outdo Girls Aloud for key-change of the year.
46. Bun B – II Trill

Ott 4 2008, 12:29 di oslofishHere's this week's hypelist:
- Kalle J - When you see me
Swede Kalle J heavily samples Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel in this modern disco jem.
- Bertine Zetlitz - Islands In the Stream (feat. Thom Hell) (Hell Sessions)
The original duet with Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers is a terrible guilty pleasure of mine. Bertine Zetlitz delivers a stripped down version featured on her In My Mind 1997 - 2007 - Best Of Bertine Zetlitz compilation.
- Bryn Christopher - Sour Times
Starting to sense a theme here? Bryn Christopher does an amazing cover the Portishead classic. Should be featured on a James Bond soundtrack!
- Saint Etienne - This Is Tomorrow
I know, I know - another Saint Etienne song. Does this obsession ever end? No. This British band is after all one of the greatest bands in the history of the world in my (not so) very humble opinion. Why you say? Well, they helped define the whole indie dance genre for one. And they're not afraid to cross genres. …

Lug 14 2008, 21:36 di caverdazMy first (of hopefully many) year at TITP:
Friday started stupidly early considering that this was a day off and the festival didn't start until 6, on a bus with Ivan (A mate I went with) at 9:15 to Balado. A 2.5 hour bus ride with kids was quite tiring but being told that I didn't look older than Ivan (He's 26, I'm 29) cheered me up no end.
What happened next is the only bad word I'll say about the festival (Well apart from line-up/stage mis-matches, but you can't blame popularity on the organizers when the bands are booked way in advance...): It took TWO WHOLE HOURS of queuing to get into the campsite entrance. Surely that could have been prevented?
Anyway, rant over. We camped in Yellow zone in the end, which is probably the farthest from the arena, but it was flat and not near the toilets which is good enough for me.
Friday's short schedule kicked off at 18:05 when I saw Los Campesinos!, who apart from the opening song were really good.
Apr 10 2008, 2:50 di sistasouljahIn order of release date:
Joshua Radin - Unclear Sky (02.12.08)
// Sky with Ingrid Michaelson has become one of my favorite songs. I mean, come on, it's Ingrid AND Josh!
Lizz Wright - The Orchard (02.26.08)
// Jazzy and hot.
Marie Digby - Unfold (04.08.08)
// A very talented young singer-songwriter. Her cover of Umbrella is awesome (Am I the only one whose ears bleed when they hear Rihanna's version?)
Portishead - Third (04.29.08)
// A LONG overdue new album from Portishead. Definitely worth the wait.
The Roots - Rising Down (04.29.08)
