18 déc. 2009, 12h19m par CvaldaVessalisSo here we are, as Bloc Party would sing... The end of the year... The end of the decade... The end of an era... The fucking end of it all!!!! Seriously, this year has been the most horrid one so far for me personally; this journal has kind of been one of the only things keeping me sane and with-it, so for those patient enough to read through it, thank you! And for those who've commented, thanks for your feedback! This will be one of a handful of entries for me this month, it being The End and everything, so keep 'em peeled for some more chart/award-based malarkey. But I digress, without further ado, let's crack on with December...
I Dreamed A Dream by Susan Boyle
Like quite a few UK TV viewers and YouTube subscribers, I got caught up in the whole Susan Boyle farrago in the early months of this year; the first time I saw her audition on Britain’s Got Talent, I too was quietly overwhelmed at the emotional turnaround that a humble, lonely woman achieved in the face of a viewership of millions…
1 mars 2009, 12h47m par DandelionRadioAndrew Morrison:
Andy's March show features an exclusive session from his hot new US discovery Raw Milk, and the first ever play of tracks from the forthcoming second album by Samuraj Cities. There's further new music from Eliza, The Race, Errors and Bloc Party, along with unsigned music from Galchen, The War Crimes, Lassus, Small Engine Repair and The Spinoza State. Scott's Funky Five Minutes has a cinematic theme, and Andy's Old Chestnut is a Middle Eastern-influenced gem from 1988. Listen in for all this and more!
A full voiced Mr Grainger presents March's two hour show with the usual subtlety and aplomb that only he, dear listener, is convinced his shows contain. However, the Record label End of the Road does provide three fantastic examples of its catalogue. There are tracks from the newly released album's of Polly Scattergood and Amadou & Mariam, shoegazing Japanese style from Kervey Heithel, delicious Deep House from Phlash & Friends. …

That's it. The end. 2008 is coming to a close, and what a wonderful/crazy/stupid/ year it has been. As always, there was a ton of music put out in 2008, and Voilà! is here to do that music justice.
Voilà! has been active and seen a whole year of music, officially. And this is the second run through of the best songs in a year for our humble site. Scrummaging around for some of the neatest music you can find may be a little cumbersome and difficult, but was it ever worth it! We found some unbelievably great stuff this year; 2008 was quite a zinger of a music year. From the latest kings of dance and pop trying to take their place on a thrown, some Chicagoan-Hollywood lovers kicking and screaming from the top, to marching bands who have you celebrating happiness, 2008 has left a defined mark on the music world. This is just some of the awesomeness we all collectively experienced through our speakers.
All of the following albums/bands are in no particular order - we're just going…
29 déc. 2008, 18h07m par crack_headParce que certaines chansons ont marqué plus profondément notre année, charnellement ancrées dans notre souvenir, attachées à un événement précis de notre mémoire ou nous ayant bercées continuellement, elles sont le reflet d'une année riche en émotion. Celle ci s'est ouverte sur la découverte de MGMT, jalousement préservé par une petite niche de défricheurs intransigeant, Time to Pretend n'a pas tardé à inonder les ondes, allant presque jusqu'à provoquer le dégoût, l'overdose. Mais finalement un concert en cette fin d'année a remis les choses à leur place, Time to Pretend est bel et bien la chanson de 2008, celle qui le mieux représente le temps présent, un hymne générationnel en quelque sorte, frondeur, assumant ces influences tout en restant profondément contemporaine. Un titre pop au sens le plus noble du terme. Nous étions encore en plein hiver que White Winter Hymnal des Fleet Foxes et Skinny Love de Bon Iver nous poussait à rester blotti auprès d'un feu salvateur. …
17 juin 2008, 10h01m par fatplanetFor quite some time, I’ve been thinking about developing a podcast series - one of the main comments that lands on the Fat Planet blog are complaints about the fact that blog readers can’t hear the radio show. There are licence complications in Australia that prevent FBi from hosting downloads of their programs, so the only way forward to do something entirely new. I say ‘entirely’, but Slang Tang is essentially a cut down version of Fat Planet, covering almost exactly the same ground. All the tracks however are either licenced under Creative Commons, or have been explicitly released for podcasting by the artists.
Three episodes are now up - the first features Ghislain Poirier, Mr Slaughter, Amkoullel, Kojoe, Mexican Institute Of Sound, Shantel, Nuuro and El Remolon; the second (published today) houses Suckafish P Jones, Potato Masta, Booty Cologne, De Tropix, Todosantos, Nova, Jazzy B, Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit. Ep 3 houses Playdoe, Dama do Bling, Bostich & Fussible, Marxy, Disrupt…
