    Two Wounded Birds have steeped themselves in the defining sounds of the last 60 years, creating their own micro-community in an unreceptive, generally hostile home town.
    This all-encompassing love of rock and pop has acted as a block to the relentless buzz of the hype machines and instilled in the band a fervent appreciation of melody and a deep reverence for the song. And it comes across in the music.

    In early 2012 a mysterious band appeared online. The group, The Neighbourhood, revealed no biographical information, no photos and no backstory, offering only a moody track titled “Female Robbery.” Fans and the press were confounded, scouring the Internet for any information that might lead them to the identity of these musicians. Pieces of the puzzle, some reflecting reality and some not so much, began to emerge. The Neighbourhood were a quintet. They were from California despite the British spelling of their name. They had a second track, “Sweater Weather,” which had an accompanying — and equally dark — video.

    Smith Westerns consists of Cullen Omori (vocals), Max Kakacek (Guitar), Cameron Omori (Bass), and Julien Ehrlich (drums).Since forming in 2007 in Chicago, Illinois, United States, Smith Westerns have managed to tour both the United States and Europe while supporting the likes of MGMT, Florence and The Machine, Belle and Sebastian, Girls, and Passion Pit. Their self recorded “lo-fi” debut Smith Westerns, released in 2009, garnered critical acclaim for their youthful and glam rock tinged approach to pop music. In 2010, Smith Westerns teamed up with Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Beach House) and current record label Fat Possum to record their sophomore effort in a proper studio. The result was a cleaner/higher quality recording of lush, layered timeless pop songs.

    Those of you that have heard of Friska Viljor before probably know the story of how Daniel Johansson and Joakim Sveningsson started the band after both their relationships had gone down the drain. Those of you who haven’t heard of the band still know this particular kind of story far too well. Heartache has always been one of the prime catalysts for artistic work, and every artist sees their own suffering as something unique, and their thoughts and work about it as something the whole world should share, says Daniel.

    After four years using music as a cheap therapist both Daniel and Joakim had come to the point in their lives when it is time for a fresh start. This clearly shows on the band’s third album ”For New Beginnings.”

    The lyrics no longer consists solely of broken hearts. Instead there’s stories of happiness, sorrow and hope. You’ll get some soul searching in “If I Die Now,” a bit of nostalgia in the childhood portray “Manwhore”, and some apathy in “Hibiskus Park”.

    There’s also some changes in the music. You still get the drastic leaps between genres and the bands typical instrumentation with everything from mandolin, ukulele and glockenspiel to accordion, clarinet and saw. But you can clearly sense a new direction, away from euphoric choruses towards depth and seriousness.

    Oh No! This is what I Feared All Along

    (((S))) is a one man project from the foggy streets of Copenhagen, Denmark. This anonymous black and white phantom artist releases his debut album ”GHOST” in April 2009.

    When asked about his anonymous appearance (((S))) replies: ”Ever since childhood I have had this deep desire inside to be invisible and loved at the same time,- It’s like my motto and ever since then I have worked very hard to obtain my goal. And this record is one of the results of these thoughts and desires”.

    If you head over to his Last.fm page, you'll find a lot of his tracks available for free download!

  • Do you really think last.fm's similar artists are accurate?

    22 Oct 2013, 14:25 by maplejet

    Hello world.

    You really think so? Then take a look at these so-called similar artists found on each of the following artists among the first 50 artists listed:

    Metallica - System of a Down, Slipknot, Godsmack, KoRn, Disturbed, Rammstein, The Offspring, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Children of Bodom, In Flames, Apocalyptica, Alice in Chains, Bullet For My Valentine, Lamb of God, Stone Sour, Nirvana, Limp Bizkit, Rage Against the Machine, Deep Purple, Nightwish

    --You really think nu metal like KoRn and Slipknot sound the same? When was Pink Floyd known for making headbashing tunes? I never knew Offspring was a metal band. I didn't know Metallica had harsh vocals like Children of Bodom, Lamb of God, and In Flames! I didn't know Metallica had rap vocals like Limp Bizkit and Rage Against the Machine. And I most certainly think Led Zeppelin is a true metal band since thrash and heavy metal is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says Led Zeppelin


    The Offspring - Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit, Metallica, System of a Down, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Nickelback, Godsmack, Three Days Grace, Rage Against the Machine, AC/DC, KoRn, Bullet For My Valentine, 3 Doors Down, Disturbed, Hollywood Undead, Slipknot, Guano Apes, P.O.D., In Flames, Serj Tankian, Dope, Breaking Benjamin, Static-X, NIrvana, DragonForce, Puddle of Mudd, Iron Maiden, Linkin Park, Rammstein

    --So wait, I'm supposed to believe that the nu metal craze of the 90s featured The Offspring? I'm supposed to believe Offspring played funk rock music like RHCP. I'm supposed to believe Offspring is a rap-oriented group like RATM, LP, and Hollywood Undead? A post-grunge outfit LIKE FUCKING NICKELBACK? In Flames did punk rock or pop punk? This is news to me!!!



    Nirvana - Sex Pistols, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Guns N' Roses, The White Stripes, Ramones, System of a Down, Joy Division, Korn, The Beatles, Queens of the Stone Age, Pink Floyd, Green Day, Marilyn Manson

    Gee, Nirvana is hard rock like Led Zeppelin. And they play psychedelic music like Pink Floyd and The Doors...obviously the Beatles and their happy pop and rock and roll is similar to Nirvana and their negative creep grunge sounds. And obviously it's nu metal since it's similar to KoRn and SOAD (I consider SOAD part of the nu metal scene but not as a nu metal band).


    And there's more out there. This is all thanks to the brilliant formula for finding similar artists. Congratulations, if you love Guns N' Roses, you will love Nirvana (and vice versa).
  • Last.fm has a place in my heart

    Well it's been like forever since I was an active member here on last.fm. When I posted on numerous threads, leaved shouts and wrote on my journal. And listening to much music, old, new, whatever.
    Now, I don't give too much attention on what I listen to (I'd rather say that I "hear" music nowadays). Just the mainstream stuff that's on the radio. Me listening to music. Now THAT'S what I call a change.
    Last.fm has changed even more than my musical taste. I don't almost know how to use it, I don't know what's going on, what groups are popular, what new artists are loved or hated, if there are new members (because once upon a time there were accounts that you would pop up often and I kinda knew some of them) or if last.fm has become too big to know any member at all, if people still leave shouts or post to threads or write journals.
    I was reading the comments on my previous threads here on my journal and I was wondering how did I had so many comments and who are these people.
    Now we have facebook and twitter.
    And last.fm has changed so much, you need to be subscribed(!!!) to listen to radio. There are events and other stuff I'm sure that I'm not aware of.

    But last.fm will always be in my heart. A special memory of a certain period of my life. Actually I'd say that somwhow has changed my life. Or more preciselly my point of view on life. And I'll never forget that.
    The time I've spent in these pages. The bands I've discovered. The opinions I've read. The first troll I met (and took it too seriously - lol!).


    This post is dedicated to Captain Hero.
    I hope that adolesence is far behind you.
