touching something very deep inside your soul
Have committed proceeds from their upcoming tour to a project designed to protect the Earth from asteroids. The B612 Foundation’s Sentinel Project will receive a dollar from each ticket sold for the band’s US west coast tour.
Broken Bells has found the most original/weird/out-of-this-world/nerdy/unexpected cause ever: the band will donate money to the B612 Foundation’s Sentinel mission
Everything Is Awesome – Tegan And Sara, The Lonely Island – The theme song to the hotter than July “The Lego Man” is Wiggle simple but without an ounce of condescending , this crossover nursery rhyme is really as awesome as you wish it was – A
The Haden Triplets – The Haden Triplets – Expert back up singers for decades, Jack White got them in the studio for this album of Americana folk songs in very close harmony. The great Ry Cooder produced and this is an album of extreme beauty echoing roots early country – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+
I kinda missed the bus on 2011’s On A Mission by Katy B but listening to it now, it is a terrific terrific terrific dance album and I can’t wait for the newbie which is getting raves and may well end up being one of the best of the year. Xiu Xiu are always good, Bombay Bicycle Club have their moments, Little Mix are ready for their close up and Broken Bells…
Coming Of Age – Foster The People – Poppier than Imagine Dragons but that textured drum sound is familiar to both and Foster The People have better songs; this is above average indie pop with an eye on the charts – A
It has been nearly five years since “The List” and three more on top since her last album of original songs “Black Cadillac” so a new Rosanne Cash album is a reason to celebrate and The River And The Thread is our album of the week.
Sure the trailer is very short, but the whole thing runs like a super production of a retro sci-fi movie soundtrack-ed by some Daft Punk-meet-the-Bee-Gees’ leftovers. It seems to be a big deal, all the big publications are mentioning it, I just hope they give a break to this faux-disco on the rest of the album.
