You should listen this album in this chart,if you consider these albums,you won't regret.Highly highly i recommend this album. Firewater creates dazzling and alluring music from the ugliness of everyday life.Their music is not rubbish,it is honest more then anything.I think gypsy punk is very affecting style.You can find folk rock,punk and rock'n'roll combination and little gipsy..:)
Do you like barker vocals like Tom Waits so then this is the album which you are looking for.Anything at all,Too many angels,Man on the burning Tightrope,Don't make it stop are higly recommended songs from this album.I openly say you can see Tom Waits influences on 'The dog and pony show' and 'two many angels'.This album really rocksss... buy this

'Fifth Beatle' Billy Preston has died aged 59.
The keyboard player, who played with the Fab Four as well as The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan, had been battling chronic kidney failure for some time. He underwent a kidney transplant in 2002, but the kidney failed and he has been on dialysis treatments ever since.
The star's manager Joyce Moore told Billboard that Preston had been in a coma in a care facility since November. He was taken to a hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona at the weekend (June 3) after his condition deteriorated.
Preston is best known for providing keyboards on The Beatles' 'Let It Be' album, most notably a solo on the Number One single 'Get Back'. He even performed with them the last time they played live, at the rooftop concert in central London in 1969. It was around this time he began to be dubbed 'The fifth Beatle' by fans and the press.
Preston also later appeared on solo albums by Beatles pals George Harrison, John Lennon and Ringo Starr.
He also most notably guested with The Rolling Stones on their classic albums 'Sticky Fingers' and 'Exile On Main Street', as well as Bob Dylan's 'Blood On The Tracks', Sly And The Family Stone's 'There's A Riot Goin' On' and Aretha Franklin's 'Young, Gifted And Black'.
Preston was also successful as a solo artist in the Seventies, winning a best instrumental Grammy in 1973 for the track 'Outta Space'.
Mick Jagger was among the first paying tribute to Preston, saying: "Billy was a fantastic and gifted musician...a superb singer at both recording sessions and live. He was great fun to be with onstage when touring with us...I will miss him a lot."
Jagger's bandmate Keith Richards, himself recovering from a recent operation, added: "One For Billy, a genius with all the baggage! Too soon, so great! Miss you."

Cult American heroes The Decemberists have revealed the first details of their major label debut.
Since signing to Capitol Records the band has been working on the follow up to 2005’s rather brilliant ‘Picturesque’.
The record they have produced ‘The Crane Wife’ will hit shops on October 2 with the band working on around 22 songs for the album, some apparently 10 minutes long according to Pitchfork.
In a mail-out to fans the band hailed the material as “undoubtedly the best thing we've done to date. And while that might smack of hyperbole ('didn't they say that about the last record?,' you well may be thinking...), we can guarantee that it, at the very least, will be decidedly above average."
The anticipation is palpable!

Modern Music Album Review:
Oh...Such a great great album.I think it'S one of the best adult release in this year.
As you know Modern Music reviews chosen ones. So "Victory For The Comic Muse" is what we look for to listen.
Divine Comedy will crush our world with this full of sorrowful release. Great piano and vocals are joining to pure sound and becaming a wanted album.
Opening song with Diva lady,directly you will be exciting if you're interested in
magical music. Songs are holding you one by one. Vocals are very fascinating.
As a matter of fact,this album takes control from me while i'm listening.i can easly
say there is scott walker influences but really it isn't a copy work.Also
Divine Comedy influenced by scott walker and this is a reason to be proud of them.
The plough is another factor which is important reason to give high point to this
album. Party fears two is an another gem which you shouldn't miss while listening.
You can find your own favorite song in this album.It is cocksure I am talking to it.
Too much work has been spent,we can simply see.Flying...

Grateful Dead keyboard player Vince Welnick has died. He was 55.
Welnick took over as the cult band's keyboard player in 1990 and continued until the band retired from performing following the death of founder and frontman Jerry Garcia in 1995.
"Vince passed from this earth on 2 June 2006... after a decade of battling tragedy while creating beauty and light around him," a statement on Welnick's website said.
No cause of death was given on the website.
However, local newspaper Mercury News, which covers the San Francisco Bay Area near where Welnick lived, has claimed it was suicide. They report that the musician was taken, injured, from his home to a local hospital where he died.
Welnick is the fourth keyboard player from the Grateful Dead to have died. Founding vocalist and keyboard player Ron 'Pigpen' McKernan, a heavy drinker, died of liver failure in 1973. Then, Keith Godchaux died in a car accident in 1980 and Brent Mydland died in 1990 of a drug overdose.
The classic self-titled debut by Gary Numan's Tubeway Army.You can say what a simple cover,but you shouldn't think like that...Because this simple tells everyway in this album.Simplicity versus confusing.It's hard to explane but there are lots of pleasing combination of tones with this cover,perfect.Look at his look and listen this album looking the cover.You'll be amazed with this harmony.
You can find this album too dark but if you're interested in dark melodies in post-punk you shouldn't miss this album.buy
