Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

When I first discovered them, they sang the great song "Too Young". Now, The French band Phoenix releases their fifth studio record "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix". It's Never Been Like That is their the most ambitious album for sure. And first single of that album "Long Distance Call" still exists on my playlist.

The most recent single is "1901" which is totally a Phoenix song. All i can say is that I love this band. They return after three-year break with a great album.

'Animal'- Miike Snow

This is a curious song I heard a while back. It’s from Miike Snow, a new band that apparently prefers to be rather mysterious, so I don’t know much about them. They have a debut album coming out this year, and have thus far only release this one single (as well as a couple of remixes that are pretty easy to find through Downtown Record’s site if you want to download them legally). It’ll be interesting once more material come out, because it’s hard to get a grasp on a band when you’ve only ever heard one song. When I first heard ‘Animal’ I loved it and desperately wanted to download it, but only the remixes were available. By the time I got my hands on the album version my excitement had waned. What seemed so fresh the first time felt less energetic with each listen. Still, it’s a pretty cool song. Miike Snow intrigues me, and I think this a band to keep an eye on.

The Decemberists Hazards of Love

New The Decemberists press release:
The album began when Meloy—long fascinated by the British folk revival of the 1960s—found a copy of revered vocalist Anne Briggs's 1966 EP, titled The Hazards of Love. Since there was no actual song with the album's title, he set out to write one, but was soon immersed in something much larger.

The Hazards of Love tells the tale of a woman named Margaret who is ravaged by a shape-shifting animal; her lover, William; a forest queen; and a cold-blooded, lascivious rake, who recounts with spine-tingling ease how he came "to be living so easy and free" in the aforementioned "The Rake's Song". [Becky Stark and Shara Worden] deliver the lead vocals for the female characters, while [Jim James, Robyn Hitchcock, and Rebecca Gates] appear in supporting roles. The range of sounds reflects the characters' arcs, from the accordion's singsong lilt in "Isn't It a Lovely Night?" to the heavy metal thunder of "The Queen's Rebuke/The Crossing".

On January 15, 2009, "The Rake's Song" became available as a free download on their Myspace page. This was followed on February 16, 2009 by "The Hazards of Love 1," again on Myspace. Now i shared "Hazard of Love" for you to download for a short period of time. 7/10

Laura Gibson- "Beasts of Seasons" (2009)

Laura Gibson’s new album is out, and unfortunately “Beasts of Seasons” didn’t really astound me. It was all very lovely and emotional, but it was like reading a literary novel versus a piece of genre fiction…. It was all about careful development and exploration of the innermost feelings. In that way it filled the space of time it took to listen with the honey of Laura Gibson’s voice, and with her chatoyant musings and introspection. But there was no action, no twists, no particular magical moment that really hooked into me and didn’t let go. Just sincere, and at times face-slapping realism. And, to be honest, I found it, like too many literary fictions, a little bit boring. There was next to no variation in the sound of the songs, though beautiful, and I swear the songs and the spacing of the lyrics within them just got slower as the album went on. None of the songs stood out to me except for the charming and animated, ‘Spirited’. That one is definitely worth a listen.

But overall listening to the album was like dripping molasses. Very sweet and slow moving. If you hear one song from the album and enjoy it, I can almost guarantee you’ll like them all, and that’s not meant as a jibe. She has a very stable sound which she carries throughout the album and for those who love this style they will be sure to recognize Gibson’s newest release as a gem. I didn’t really enjoy “Beasts of Seasons” but I can see why it’s being called a masterpiece by those who enjoy this elegant type of singer/songwriter work.


This song isn’t on the album, it’s by a group called the Portland Cello Project, but it does feature Laura Gibson and the style is similar.

Katy Perry - Thinking Of You

Soft screams, candy-like voice of Katy Perry get you to your best romantic moments. I would not like to think my ex-lovers, because lovetime (lifetime:) comes and goes! However, Katy Perry seems to like fooling around and she's singing her soft, drinky song. How pity Katy, look at yourself! This is a good, good song.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Beware

Our favorite folk singer Bonnie "Prince" Billy ready to release another big album of him "Beware".

Some blogs seem to like the upcoming Bonnie Prince, "Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will release his “biggest and most ambitious album,” Beware on March 16th via Domino Records." Muzzle of Bees.

There are amazing moments on the album like songs "My Life's Work", “I Am Goodbye" and "I Don't Belong To Anyone". It's been almost another "I See Darkness". The closing track proves that Bonnie "Prince" Billy will make satisfied music fans once again.

Ok, here it comes the opener track, i will remove this later. you can also watch some of him music videos at Dragcity.

February Playlist Sample

I thought I’d share part of my current playlist. There’s new and old here, but they’re all favorites.

Anavan- BOOM (This is my current favorite song. It’s crazy danceable. It’s off Anavan’s new album ‘Cover Story’)

The Books- Cello Song (a new favorite from the excellent compilation ‘Dark Was The Night’, a 2-disc benefit album featuring a real who’s-who list of indie bands. If you want it, buy it and support AIDs prevention. Get more info and sample some songs here at Dark Was The Night’s MySpace page.)

Setting Sun- How Long (I just got Setting Sun’s 2008 album ‘Children of the Wild’, and I’m really enjoying it. It’s kind of a strange album, with folk blending into synthesizers at times, and very beat oriented. ‘Overjoyed’ has to be my favorite song, but this one is good too.)

Willowfair- Shadow (So quiet, so beautiful. More of Willowfair’s work can be downloaded free at Noisetrade.com)

Royksopp- Happy Up Here (Brand new single from Royksopp. Really catchy, incredibly fun. Listen here: Happy Up Here. *Update- I found the official video. The sound is so much better*

Great Northern- The Middle (Great Northern’s 2007 album ‘Trading Twilight for Daylight’ is amazing.)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!

Punkkkk! YYY returns with both new single and album. It's Blitz is the third studio album of New York based punk rock band. Believe me, Yeah Yeah Yeah sounds quite crazy. First single is named "Zero" reminds their songs from "Fever to Tell" album. That album has a lot of great song, including their the oddest song "Date with the Night". It's Blitz! combines dance, rock and punk, and it sounds great.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Zero

Cabaret Voltaire - Kora! Kora! Kora! (2009)

The seminal, electronic, art-rock experience from Sheffield known as Cabaret Voltaire is poised to inflict audio-visual carnage across designated areas of the world and its solar system once again.

Drownned In Sound shares an article
It’s not all that often that a remix album is significantly more important than the album that spawned it but given that Kora are an inoffensive Kiwi rock/reggae band and Cabaret Voltaire were, along with Throbbing Gristle, pioneers of the early electronic dance sound that came to be known as Industrial, Kora! Kora! Kora! more than qualifies.
and it continues, read rest of it.

this music is so cool.
