Sia is just so talented and I love how she uses the same dancer in all her videos. This song is just what you need on a rainy Friday (or any day/weather type actually) as it makes you want to grab a cocktail and go dancing. Or maybe that's just me?!
Such a classic track for a lot of us maybe not you ?
What a voice proclaimed my dad. And I already agreed but was a little surprised this coming from him.
I caught a view on MTV while in an odd pub the feathers in Chalfont St Giles and it struck me that I simply had to blog it - yet again annoyingly Calvin Harris is on the editors shortlist and the video indeed makes the grade. But who are HAIM the band ? They were something few try hard to reach and most fail - unique. They are 3 sisters from L.A. who formed HAIM with drummer making 4.
HAIM are este, danielle and alana the three sisters and the drummer is dash hutton.
I just knew this was going to make it onto the site as soon as I had heard it. The base line and the lyrics are all what dancehall is about. So I was more than happy to watch the ajoined video. As it more than keeps in the spirit of the track. As often is the case we dont need to talk too much just click on the video and let us know if you like it. It is raw and some women doing stuff with their batty that is not what you can do just like that.
Those scandas - you see them all backpacking round thailand in winter cause its dark and cold back home..otherwise they busy in industrial design or making top dance music.
In their words "Röyksopp is a two-headed norwegian monster, dealing within the realm of contemporary electronic music."
It really is an epic dance track. A little late for us posting it but at least it made it to the Style Review shores..not a slam dunk as we only accept quality.
It's a very comical argument between a guy and his girl, in its epoch the video had many cameos from many french stars that were musicians comedians and actors + more.
Hip-hop music fans around the world would give an arm and a leg to get their hands on one of these items.
It can be very frustrating when you first start to play an instrument - your initial enthusiasm for it can quickly fade when you find that you’re struggling to master even the most basic chords or finger positions. At the same time, you may start to lose interest if you cannot commit enough time per day to practicing. Some people might just learn a small amount, and then get overwhelmed by the prospect of continuing. So, then, how can you keep yourself motivated when these hurdles start to appear?
With the pitch perfect agendas of shows like the X-Factor seeking the next teen poodle to exploit, it’s refreshing to go out and see a live band with a lot of grit and a few imperfections creeping in. And if you’re looking for something well outside the norm, then an event like the recent album release party from punk pop outfit The Get at The Railway Hotel in Southend should hit the mark. Let’s hope their latest album Gettitude! is not the last and will provide a reason to host another of these extraordinary nights. Indeed, if this transgender rock frolic had been promoted to the wider world, it would have relegated the Sex Pistols’ stage performance to the annals of banality.
For someone as middle as me when I first experienced Leona Lewis sing Hurt originally by Johnny Cash (a massive favorite of my fathers) my ears pricked up.
Not only has she always stood apart - a long way from the new pack of artists she is not afraid to try this massive ballad. I featured the original video out of respect and the other fact that you will hear this over and over for the moment and though I would always prefer the original as Cash was singing from the real depths of his soul.
Now Leona Lewis has just performed this at the Royal Variety Performance (I don't rate the dress) and Nicole Scherzinger (I got it wrong didn't I ) will be glad that Peter Kay did a funny featuring Jimmy Saville creating the space to follow Lewis' performance. In the words of Kelly Rowland who's latest song in very average though her body is amazing 'SHE LAID IT DOWN'
This documentary shown on BBC Three iplayer @BBCiPlayer showcases the emergence of a trend of getting as much female flesh to the air in todays pop and music videos. Before this was just in Hip Hop [Nelly Videos NELLY's OFFICIAL TWITTER] and dance; remember that drill and other power tools SATISFACTION ?
Well today we have the likes of Katy Perry [follow on twitter] and its a bit cleaner somehow, but then tomorrow ?
We may be at the level whereby tv is degrading so much that Music TV is in fact more entertaining and short, and we seem to be demanding it.
These videos may not show us the whole story and this documentary tries to get into the real girls at work and the aspirational girls who are slightly delusional that they will become stars, or perhaps maybe they will.
Regaton videos and Latin America have certainly helped bring about this trend in music video (check out Calle 13 Rene Perez Joglar) and the nature of media no longer being 4 channel tv is that these videos are not being seen by your parents but they are BIG business. Certainly for me in a non sexual way Axwell's Feel the Vibe is my favourite all time Music Video go and see why.
The Audio-Technica turntable
USB port to convert vinyl LPs into digital files ($149.95) -> now thats a great feature. Check see if there is a newer model out.
This is going to be one of the big tunes of the summer, the fantastic sounding and vibrant lyrics from mike snow remixed by the punks jump up remix for some pace and energy is just so perfect for this summer which seems to have come early !
First heard this from the centre of the LAPA we are falar bout Rio De Janiero , great song that mixes real well by my desired dj of choice in London and Guanabara DJ LIMAO..
Saw these guys from Tokyo live at Lovebox 2009. Very very good , different taking regular instruments and producing kind of elecktro rock. Very very amazing drumming for a full on 30 minutes. If they play near you these guys are well worth a look !
New Order and Joy Division were and still are are, for me a massively influential group for myself growing up in the 80's and 90's and for a whole generation pre and post emergence of the rave scene. From 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' to 'Blue Monday' (which still sound great) , you only have to look at the British music scene now to see the influence they still have - check out The Editors for a very Joy Division vibe - namely 'Munich' to Black Kids to many electro acts / dj's around for miles.
What always was great for me in purchasing a New Order (or indeed Pulp) album was the fantastically gorgeous artwork of the album sleeves that could only ever be Peter Saville design....From album covers to other Factory Records projects - you will find his mark on it. Personally I find his designs to be fresh, intelligent, polished , colourfull (mostly) and though I am sure many others would describe the postmodernist influence in his work etc etc...to me they just look amazing and he just seems to really 'get' the bands and the music he designs for.
A huge favorite electro group of mine and an admired designer - both excellent in my opinion... but find out for yourselves. Best tracks:Theives Like Us, Fine Time,Regret,Ceremony,True Faith,1963...and the list goes on..
Fantastic album. I guess i missed the moment the first time around, i was far too busy being busy. Luckily i walk to work now and charge myself up on this synthony. If ever an album allowed a man to say "hey this is what i can do.shut up and listen' then Perfecto Fluoro is that album.So...Shut up and ...
