7 Feb 2011, 17:53 de theyshootmusicOnce upon a time there was an Icelandic musician called Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir (also known as Kría Brekkan) making a fairylike appearance in an Austrian tavern on the countryside. In this artless setting Kría’s performance felt even more other-worldy – in the most wonderful way! She did a haunting cover of The Paris Sisters’ „I Love How You Love Me“ and played her „very unofficial“ song „Creator“, before giving the camera a heart-melting smile. And if you are wondering, why you only get to see this enchanting session now, a few months after the artist paid us a visit, then her belated note might win you over as well: „I had made a new yahoo folder called FIRST AND FOREMOST, where i had put this letter so to reply it in time. I must have never again check out my FAF -folder. Anyway. If i never gave permission for you to put these videos up, I greatly apologize. I´m a shy one but this is well shot and recorded and you’re welcome to put it up!“

19 Mar 2008, 20:41 de MagiDrakeeI have a radio show on WVAU -- www.wvau.org, that is. The name of this show is "Gone Fishing," and, as you might imagine, it's full of puns about boats and sea bass, not to mention some really lovely pop songs.
Here is a slightly redundant description for the show that I took from my facebook group.
Gone Fishing gathers the best and brightest pop songs of the last fifty years and serves them to you, crisp and tasty, every Wednesday night from 8:00 to 10:00 EST.
If you like pop music and you happen to be reading this on a Wednesday, then you should listen to my show tonight!
Here are a whole bunch of artists that I've played on my radio show.
Belle & Sebastian, Dionne Warwick, Lee Hazlewood, The Shangri-Las, McCarthy, Sambassadeur, The Left Banke, Wings, Jens Lekman, Another Sunny Day, Shop Assistants, The Beach Boys, Felt, Times New Viking, The Supremes, Talulah Gosh, James Dean Driving Experience, Yo La Tengo, The Magnetic Fields, The Brilliant Corners, Razorcuts…
31 Ago 2007, 17:12 de Wormwood37Hey internet,
The most recent edition of TtAS was the product of one of those “bug up the ass” things. Not the sexual “bug up the ass” kind. The idea kind. Wow. Did I really just start this playlist with a bug-sex joke? Sick.
Anyway. This was the “all-covers” edition of the radio show. Hopefully you got to hear it, as I felt it was one of the stronger ones in a good long while. If not, you can always tune in some other week and hope I do it again.

8 Ago 2007, 7:53 de lollinoutloud1. How did you get into 29?
INXS, my mother was a huge fan of Michael Hutchence and I guess we have similar taste.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
Roxy Music, and it was 'For Your Pleasure'.
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33?
My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, oh hm...All of their lyrics are pretty cute.
"Slow down and talk to me baby, you're drivin just a little too fast. Just like your motor, I'm ready, hot, and built to last."
I am such the tacky, aren't I?
4. What is your favorite album by 49?
Aw, Priscilla Paris hardly has any albums...I guess it would either have to default to Priscilla Loves Billy(ie), or one of the Paris Sisters's albums.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
One album, one single.Spell did not release more than that.
6. What is your favorite song by 50?
Audrey Arno, and it is definitely Un College Anglais.

I think it's really important that intelligent articles are written on the appeal of this music. I especially like that it pulls apart notions of both a simplistic nostalgic approach to this music, and an approach that only sees these songs as anti-feminist.
Compare that to this piece of rubbish (no surprise) on Pitchfork:
One Fad Can Lead To Another
One of the biggest problems I have with the heavyweights of indie music media is they are too goddamn serious... and that title says it all really, with its tone of foreboding. Then you've got terrible lines like: "what is the need for new girl groups who produce albums?" Umm, because they enjoy making them and some of us enjoy hearing them.
Basically the contention seems to be that a revival would be valid, if the process of having professional songwriters write for these groups were revived as well.
First of all, what revival? I suspect these articles are probably the beginning of what will become a self-fulfilling myth of a revival.
