  • Female Rock - 1978-2000's

    3. Mai. 2010, 19:55 von pessimystica

    Rock has obviously been dominated by male vocals, so most of the bands i listen to have male vocalists. But here are some of my all-time favorites... these include mostly singles, songs that have a video that may or may not have gotten much airplay, & many that you see normally on Karaoke lists that i love to sing... along with many others i'd luv to see at karaoke (they really need more Siouxsie & Concrete Blonde!!). They're listed basically in chronological order. There won't be nearly as many 2000's songs listed as there are 90s, sadly... it seems to have stopped there for alternative rock.


    Blondie - Heart of Glass
    The Pretenders - Brass in Pocket
    The Pretenders - Tattooed Love Boys
    Joan Jett - Do You Wanna Touch Me
    Joan Jett - I Love Rock n Roll
    The Pretenders - Message of Love
    The Pretenders - I Go To Sleep
    The Pretenders - Talk of the Town
    Siouxsie and the Banshees - Sin in My Heart
    Siouxsie & the Banshees - Spellbound
  • My secret of artist discovery…

    2. Mai. 2010, 22:30 von sabberworm

    Looking through my ever-growing pile of unlistened CDs (unlistened does not mean that I never put it on, it just means that I haven’t yet had the opportunity to really listen to it all the way through a few times), I asked myself whether it would be possible to pinpoint exactly what makes me want to buy a CD. The point being here that most of the time I only get to love CDs after having bought them already and most of those CDs I eventually end up liking. Of course the fact that I obsessively collect all available records of the artists I like helps. This means that the question is reduced to the following: how do I discover new artists? And which means have provided me reliably with the artists I’d surely love? Decisive for what category to put an artist in is not how I first heard their song but what got me hooked (I’m only including artists I’m still hooked on as of today but since I can’t remember ever having gotten tired of an artist, this is a given).

    For ever and for always

  • Tuesday Ten: Ten Women In Music I Find More Attractive Than Kylie Minogue

    10. Mär. 2010, 7:32 von amodelofcontrol

    (A bit later than initially planned this week)

    Let's say a post by a female friend has reminded me to go ahead with this week's Tuesday Ten, a "possible" TT I've had on the backburner for a good three months or so. I can't remember how it originally came about, but the list began to be put together with the assistance of various close friends during a night in the pub, as I recall.

    So anyway, to put no finer point on it, it's effectively a list of ten women in music who I'm partial to, as it were. The thing is, it's not all about the looks, although they are undoubtably a part of it. It's as much about their voice, delivery, and even lyrics and themes, for sure. Needless to say, this week is also more picture-based than word-based (note: all photos taken from Google image search, and re-sized/re-hosted for the purposes of this post and to avoid leeching other people's bandwidth. No copyright claims are intended for any of the images)...

  • [Chronique] Betray-Ed - Aegishjalmur (EP)

    5. Feb. 2010, 23:15 von MelonMan1981

    L'Islande, pays mystérieux aux roches volcaniques, aux artistes ou groupes musicaux très inspirés tels que Björk, Sigur Rós, The Sugarcubes, Sólstafir ou Falkenbach (du moins de son créateur qui en est origine)... contrée mystique où de nombreuses quêtes liées à la magie et à la sorcellerie sont venues inspirer bon nombre d'auteurs ou autres artistes...

    ... Plus qu'une simple nation, un receuil de souvenirs, d'histoires, de mythes nordiques et vikings ayant bercé une population fière de ses origines.

    Betray-Ed n'est pas un projet islandais. Et pourtant... de l'essence même de cet EP Aegishjalmur (EP) se dégage toute une féérie nordique retraçant une intense et obscure procession dans un contexte local très réaliste.

    François alias Walran, son créateur, a toujours été bercé par cette mythologique si riche et si transcendante. Sa passion pour la série BD "Islandia", écrite entre 2006 et 2008 par Marc Védrines, a été ici l'inspiration principale de cette offrande propice à l'évasion. …
  • Interview with Derek and Ray Shulman of Gentle Giant

    8. Jan. 2010, 22:17 von Songfacts

    It's a good thing you can play the videos in this interview, because describing Gentle Giant is a lesson in futility. Words like "" "" and "" show up a lot, but as the guys explain, that's not quite right. So why are we interested in this unclassifiable band that never had a hit and hasn't made music since 1980? Play the videos and you'll see.

    Derek Shulman is the lead singer who in his post-Giant days became a record executive and signed Bon Jovi, Tears for Fears and Nickelback. His brother Ray Shulman played bass and went on to produce The Sugarcubes and Björk. Here's our chat.
