18 Apr 2009, 21:46 by hdsanderThe weekly High Rotation playlist, consisting of 5 tunes that will be played frequently over the next 7 days:
Cozy Powell - Dance With the Devil
Today I'll start with a signature tune. This amazing instrumental is already part of two other playlists, the Pirate Radio Hits and the Stunning Instrumentals. The intro catches attention, the rhythm absorbs the listener and some parts of the tune are suitable to speak over announcements, perfect... if I were a DJ.
Kate Voegele - 99 Times
The second single that is disposing the audience for the release of her new album "A Fine Mess" in May.
- Automatic Loveletter - Parker
A new song freshly from ALL's Myspace. I'm totally addicted the their self-titled EP and hereby demand a full album NOW!
- Duffy - Stay With Me Baby
I didn't hear any news of Duffy for a while, this brandnew cover is from the The Boat That Rocked soundtrack. Don't miss to listen to the other 35 songs.
- Katie Noonan - Send Out A Little Love
- Automatic Loveletter - Parker

8 Oct 2007, 12:40 by QuarkzSat 6 Oct – Josh Groban, Katie Noonan
This concert was simply stunning. I hadn't been in the concert hall at the Convention Centre before but it was a fantastic venue. Josh and his team put on an amazing show!
To say his voice blew me away would be an understatement. I pretty much started ovulating, that's how brilliant he was. I was lucky enough to score front row seats and even though we were far off on the left hand side of the stage (and getting blasted by the speakers) I couldn't complain about the view! Sure, a few of my vertebrae are partially compressed from the bass and it took a few hours for my hearing to come back but those seats were worth every god damn penny.
My favorite song was 'Weeping' oddly enough. I don't like that song usually but live it was breathtaking. Interesting to hear Josh's stories behind the songs and who he collaborated them with. Aside from the husbands dragged along by their over enthusiastic partners everyone was really getting into the performance. Some more than others of course.

Oh what a voice the girl has so suited to the plush surrounds of the Vanguard, with its velvet curtains and fantastic wine list.
Went alone to catch this one, well worth the trip though, hearing the beautiful voice whilst sipping a glass of red was a nice way to start my music week. The jazz influences were abundant thankfully it was her voice that dominated the sound, eyes closed swaying slightly I was transfixed.
Birds of Tokyo at the Gaelic 3 May
Arrived late after dinner up the road, saw the last song of the first support no idea who it was but they were derivative crap, should find out the name so I don't waste my time again.
Skipped Regular Johny by going to the next pub for a quiet lemonade as we had already seen them 4 times this year already, why do they support every band I see?
Back in time for the Birds, what a lovely time, thanks go to my friend for recommending me this band so long ago a fairly tight…

Go through your top 10 artists and add up the total number of listeners. Divide that number by 10; this is the average number of listeners for your top ten. Now divide the average by the number of Radiohead fans (Radiohead is the artists with the most listeners). Multiply the result by 100--that is your "mainstream percentage".
01. The Cat Empire: 11 509
02. Dimmu Borgir: 71 643
03. The Black Dahlia Murder: 26 688
04. Maroon 5: 182 845
05. Eskimo Joe: 12 184
06. Prince: 126 509
07. Mad Caddies: 34 225
08. Michael Buble: 58 356
09. Katie Noonan: 52
10. Franz Liszt: 18 936
Total Number of Listeners in Top 10: 542 947
Average Number of Listeners in Top 10: 54 294.7
Number of Radiohead listeners on Last.FM: 445512
My Mainstream Index: 0.121870342
My Mainstream Percentage: 12.19%
Wow, I kind of expected myself to be a little more mainstream.
9 Oct 2006, 10:12 by chrispixI've just started listening to a band called Spangle call Lilli line, I kind of just stumbled on them, and it's really awesome stuff. Really beautiful atmospheric guitars and pianos, the occasional dash of electronics, and an amazing vocalist who's kind of like a Japanese version of Katie Noonan from George. If any one has any info about these guys, I'd love to hear more from them.
Another one is Tujiko Noriko, who I've been trying to track down for a while, and finally got some decent material of, thanks to a kind last.fm user. From Tokyo To Naiagara is definitely a highlight of her work. She shares some kind of... inexcusable similarities to Bjork, which is a bit off-putting at first, but she does have some originality to her style, and the songs and sounds themselves are, in any case, really worth a listen.
Last of all... a question, about J-Pop-Rockers BUMP OF CHICKEN: I've been listening to a bit of their stuff recently, and some of it I absolutely love, but some of it bores me out of my mind. …
