Track: Need U Bad (full track)
Tags: reggae, lovers rock, r&b, rnb, neo-soul, soul, my gang rotw
It's absolutely years since I heard some good lovers rock. This track, from upcoming US artist Jazmine Sullivan, is singular in its mix of return to roots and contemporary soul. 'Killer' is the word other people have used. Yes, that's Missy Elliott in the video. No, I didn't recognise her straight away either.
The hype machine is only just beginning behind this girl in the UK. In the States, the single went to number one in the Billboard R&B charts in the summer.
A quick album review whilst I'm here: Fearless has a few highlights - Need U Bad, the sublime Lions, Tigers & Bears, One Night Stand and In Love With Another Man. Dream Big is rather decent electro. The hype will have you believe you're listening to the new Aretha Franklin. Listen to that and you'll be disappointed. Approach the album as I did, with an open mind, and let it play a few times. Behind the big tracks are songs which promise greater things to come. The strength in Fearless lies in its exquisite music and lightness of touch from the people behind the scenes - Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Cool & Dre as well as a number of less well known producers. With a good balance of strong and quiet tracks, the album makes for an exceedingly good listen. Vocally, comparisons have been made with Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and Jill Scott amongst others. Fair comments but Jazmine Sullivan has something else in her voice far, far more powerful than any of these great ladies, in my opinion. Or maybe it's just me. She sang with Stevie Wonder when she was only 13, so I can't be far wrong.

22 Sep 2008, 16:45 by browlandI wrote an earlier journal entry about the decline of CDs and what will be the next major format on the market. Other formats such as DVD Audio and Super Audio CD (SACD) have achieved little more than niche market success, so I would be apprehensive about anything new. However, this sounds like an interesting idea - preloaded memory cards. I imagine that it will be more expensive than CDs at the launch, but they might catch on.
Below is an article from NME.com...
A new physical music format that allows people to buy music that has been preloaded onto SanDisk memory cards is set to launch.
slotMusic has the support of major record labels EMI Music, Sony BMG, Warner Music Group and Universal Music Group.
It is expected that many of their artists, who include Oasis, Amy Winehouse and Coldplay, will be featured on the new format.
The preloaded cards, which have a capacity of 1GB (gigabyte), will enable users to play the music on a variety of different platforms including mobile phones and MP3 and video players.
The MP3-based tracks on the cards are encoded at a high-quality 320kbps bitrate and are DRM free, meaning that they can be played across multiple devices.

Orpheum Circuit is the debut album release for the inventive, electro-folksters Shoosh. Fronted by 90s' indie pioneer Neil Carlill, who was formerly the lead singer with Delicatessen and Lodger. Their sound is a unique blend of american folk, modern ambient and surreal, dadaist lyrics, that are delivered in a highly distinctive and thoroughly compelling style. Carlill is backed up on acoustic guitar by Ed Drury, a composer with over 60 titles to his credit and Craig Murphy on synthesizers. Murphy has released under various names including Solipsism (Electronica) and ch.pm (Ambient).
HERB008CD Shoosh - Orpheum Circuit
Release Date - January 26th 2009
Distribution - Cargo Records
Label - Herb Recordings
So far Shoosh have one release to their name in the critically acclaimed 2007 Awkward Silence 3" Split, mini CD, currently available from Boomkat, Bleep etc. This release has seen the band likened to such luminaries as Pink Floyd, The Animal Collective, Mercury Rev, David Bowie, Current 93, Bob Dylan and Neil Young to name a few! Despite these welcome similarities, Shoosh have undeniably managed to carve a new niche out all for themselves.

19 Sep 2008, 13:32 by edimervaldo2006: a bad and very hard year. In music, I just followed the trends started the years before.
Due to the fact almost all the music I listened to that year was scrobbled to last.fm, the top20 is basically my last.fm's top20 for that year.
This top20 is not considered as retrospective, since it was made soon after 2006 was finished.
Here we are with the 20 most important songs for that year.
20 - The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations Very classic song of theirs. Very nice vocals.
19 - Ramones - Take It As It Comes It took me a long time to discover that it's actually a The Door's song. But both versions sound really good.
18 - Gene Vincent - It's No Lie In this year I made a Gene Vincent's revival. And this song was the most played then.
17 - Erika - Right or Wrong Every year features a dance song. That time was that song.
16 - Mafalda Arnauth - Quase Imortal It's FADO time. This song had been my #1 in Last.fm for months.
15 - Mondo Marcio - Dentro Alla Scatola It's Italian rap. This song provided lots of fun, altough not being about happy matters.
14 - The Beatles - You Never Give Me Your Money I think I had never given this song enough attention until that year
13 - Alessandro Moreschi - Ave Maria If the year before this song took #13 because of curiosity, in 2006 it got into the charts because of its quailty. And again the 13th.
12 - The Moody Blues - The Story In Your Eyes Moody Blues has many good songs. This is one of their best. It has much energy.
11 - Johnny Mathis - Misty Very beautiful ballad. I'm not an enthusiastic of jazz, but this song I recommend.
10 - The Knife - Silent Shout This song is very dark. The videoclip, very strange. But both are fantastic
09 - Bryan Ferry - Kiss and Tell This song is hard to explain, just listen and enjoy.
08 - The Beatles - The Word Another "re-discovered" Beatles' song.
07 - Muse - Supermassive Black Hole Very catchy rock song. When Muse decides not to sound like Radiohead, we always get good results.
06 - The Moody Blues - I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band) Another Moody Blues' song. This is a very powerful song with funny lyrics, possibly an answer to the social/political-engaged bands.
05 - Gnarls Barkley - Crazy In my opinion, the hit of 2006. I thought this band could do something else, but it was just another one-hit wonder
04 - Bee Gees - Craise Finton Kirk Royal Academy of Arts Very, very nice. Very, very nice.
03 - Irving Kaufman - Moe the Schmo Makes Love A funny and strange old song. It would be funnier if I could understand more than 30% of the lyrics
02 - Walter Franco - Zen I think one of the best Brazilian acts of this decade. I heard it only once in 2000 and loved it. In 2006, I re-discovered it.
01 - Earl Grant - The End It's a love song, but for me it sounds too sad. It's one of my all-time faves and has been #1 in my last.fm charts since the middle of 2006.
