Nectar(2008)
In Barcelona Natalia immediately hit the jazz circuit and launched herself into the electronic music scene contributing vocals to house and techno singles and even singing live at raves in front of thousands. Quickly establishing herself in the local scene she was introduced to a young guitarist and ex-pat from Argentina named Federico Aubele (who had already released his debut album Gran Hotel Buenos Aires on ESL Music). The two became fast friends and Federico asked her to tour with him and eventually, to sing on his new album Panamericana.

While touring across the globe with Federico, Natalia was once again exposed to new and inspiring sounds including those of songstress Lhasa de Sela. Having always sung in languages other than Spanish, Natalia felt a new and irresistible calling to express herself in her native tongue. With Federico's help and support, Natalia composed and recorded an impressive 10 track demo. When she returned with Federico to ESL Music studios in Washington DC to record vocals for his sophomore album Panamericana her demo came into the hands of Eric Hilton of Thievery Corporation. He was immediately taken by her singing talent and within the month Natalia Clavier became ESL Music's newest solo artist, and first female artist.

"My songwriting is honest and simple. I don't want to write complex poetry or crazy intellectual stuff. I write about simple human things. Ordinary days, life, love. Any theme can be a song. Songs are in the air and I just pluck them out. Sometimes I'll get the melody first and sometimes the lyrics. Most times it comes to me all at once" says Natalia of her song writing process. Armed with this light hearted humility and an angelic voice, Natalia is already in the process of recording her debut album with Eric Hilton at the controls. Her full length debut, titled Nectar, will see release in June 2008 and will undoubtedly be a unique addition to the diverse ESL Music catalogue.(MySpace)

It’s so hot in here
It’s burning outside
And all your teenage idols
have left the building
Haven’t you seen the signs of the time?
Where do you want to go?
Where do you want to go now?
Are you the last to know
they’ve changed your future
Where do you want to go?
Where do you want to go now?
Where do you want to go today?
It’s so hot in here
It’s burning outside
Everybody’s leaving
Say they will make it on the other side
Haven’t you seen the signs of the time?
Where do you want to go?
Where do you want to go now?
Are you the last to know
they’ve changed your future
Where do you want to go?
Where do you want to go now?

Heart of Chambers
In your heart of chambers
where you sit
with your picture books
and your ancient wit
In that nook I found you
so old and tired
would you be the one to carry me?
I'd like to be someone
you could finally learn to love again

Made our iron bed side
cold as graves
so we stoke the organs
that may comfort grace
and they conjured spirits
to make you smile
would you be my long time baby?

I'd like to be someone
you could finally learn to
breathe
at our sides
let's take the time
to mend these smiles
to get them
could make it home
love is surprises
live our own lives

In our beds we're the lucky ones
filled with the sun
In our beds we're the lucky ones
fill us with the sun

Broken+Social+Scene_convert_20090326095727.jpg
Broken Social Scene are a Juno Award winning Canadian indie rock band, a musical collective currently including nineteen members, formed in 1999 by Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning. All of its members currently play in various other groups and solo projects, mainly based around the city of Toronto. The band refuses the label "supergroup," based on size or the ubiquity of their members, claiming that in the indie scene everyone is involved in more than one project. The group's sound could be considered a combination of all of its members' respective musical projects, and is usually identified as baroque pop. It is characterized by a very large number of sounds, grand orchestrations featuring guitars, horns, woodwinds, and violins, unusual song structures, and an experimental, and sometimes chaotic production style from David Newfeld. (Wikipedia Broken Social Scene)


Stars and Sons
Then when you let it
You asked for nothing
Why don't you share it
All of the time you live
There's something out there

This way we'll know, how far to live on
there's one more avenue in this town
And in the red room
At a distance

How would you know it
You're the same when you're living
I don't know it
It won't be this

This way we'll know, how far to live on
This way we'll know, how far to live on

All of the time you wait, there's someone out there
And no one can find all the red

How would you show it
You can see through the red
I don't know it
It won't be this time

Tortoise's almost entirely instrumental music defies easy categorization, and the group gained significant attention from their early career. The members have roots in Chicago's fertile music scene, playing in various indie rock and punk groups. Tortoise was among the first American indie rock bands to incorporate styles closer to Krautrock, dub, minimalism, electronica, and various jazz styles, rather than the standard rock and roll and punk that had dominated indie rock for years. (Wikipedia Tortoise)

Tortoise Announce New Album Details
Pitchfork Page
It's been five years since Tortoise released "It's All Around You", their last full-length of new material. That's a long time! Kids who were born the day It's All Around You dropped are going into kindergarten pretty soon. So it's definitely time for another full-length from the Chicago post-rockers.

On June 23, Thrill Jockey will release "Beacons of Ancestorship", Tortoise's sixth proper album. And yes, there really is a song called "Yinxianghechengqi". Thrill Jockey will also release the album's first song, "High Class Slim Came Floatin' In", on the Record Store Day compilation Records Toreism. And after the album comes out, the band will release a series of limited edition 5" records featuring new music.

Burbujacover_convert_20090203130137.jpg
Merche Blasco formed Burbuja as a vehicle for her own musical exploration. Burbuja’s whispery voice is accompanied by an ensemble made up of ticking clocks, scissors, an egg whisk, distant thunder, & like the original musique concrete masterpieces, the sounds are left to exude their inherent, natural beauty, within a song format. Burbuja invites the listener to tip-toe through her delicate & deeply personal mix of realism & fantasy.

Chief Magazine Page
Chief Magazine:What is "Burbuja"?
Burbuja was the nickname my mother gave me when I was a child and I always hated having it sewed in my underwear… But somehow it came back when I had to baptize the musical project I was starting… I felt like having no other choice, there were too many things pointing to it. When I compose I almost do it as therapy. It is my own world where I can drop all the things, feelings, fears, dust that I cannot leave anywhere else, so it feels like being floating inside a bubble--which is what “burbuja” means--isolated from the rest.

With this project, I also discovered for the first time that there were no rules I had to follow. It was like waking up in a brand new space with no structures and all the freedom to compose and try new things different from what I have ever heard or played before. I didn’t have to agree or discuss with anyone else… that's why I quite enjoy playing by myself, though I love asking other minds to collaborate later.

About the debut, it's being released next February with the label Station 55 Records and produced by Cristian Vogel who did amazing work . We have been working on it for almost two years!burbublanco4.jpgBut defenitelefy all the work has been worth it, at least for me... just observing him while working and experimenting with burbuja-sound in his studio has been a pleasure and an unforgetable lesson of music.

Stephanie Dosen is an American singer-songwriter. She was raised in Wisconsin. Her songs have been featured on the soundtracks of Dawson's Creek(TV 1998-2003) and Party of Five(TV 1994-2000).

In 2006 Simon Raymonde, the former member of the Cocteau Twins who runs the Bella Union label, heard Dosen's music and as a result they worked together on the music that became Dosen's album 'A Lily For The Spectre'(2007).
The album was recorded in Pikeville, Kentucky and North Wales and was then released in the UK and Europe. Since then, Dosen has appeared on the BBC TV programme Later... with Jools Holland and on the Australian TV rock quiz entertainment show Rockwiz, and has worked with Massive Attack.
Her collaboration with Jose Gonzales for the iTunes Festival was recorded in February 2008.

Dosen joined Massive Attack as a lead vocalist in June 2008. She made her debut at Royal Festival Hall in London, performing in two sell out shows as part of the Meltdown Festival, which that year the band had been selected to direct.
Their Glastonbury performance was made special by the highlights shown on BBC Three including Dosen's mesmerising version of Teardrop. The new songs Red Light, Marakesh and Kingpin have all become popular with the European audiences on the (northern) summer 2008 tour.( Wikipedia Stephanie Dosen)

when i was young
i had a dark heart inside of me...
my dreams fell upon
a pillow of crow feathers i slept on...
and now i go
to the dark playground
where i cant let go
your face is lit by harbor lights...
vinalhaven hallah
and you`re with me aren`t you...
high on that hill
your wings stretched out high and wide
you`ll give your goodbye
though we will not see it at the time...
and now i go

your face is lit by harbor lights...

J Tillman, Bush Hall, London
Much more than a fleeting talent
Reviewed by Rob Sharp
Monday, 9 March 2009

The Seattle-based J (Joshua) Tillman is better known as one-fifth of the much-lauded Fleet Foxes here, they of global critical acclaim and hairy faces. In fact, before Tillman became the band's drummer last year, he had been a successful touring artist in his own right for many years, and is currently enjoying the release of his sixth studio album, Vacilando Territory Blues.

That he has toured extensively with a host of artists from his native Pacific North-west is immediately obvious from his confidence on stage. Such is the Foxes' standing that the whoops which greet his opening moody contemplations seem to be genuinely affectionate.

It is clear that when Tillman joined the band, he was not just bringing vocal talent into the equation. His songwriting – rich with melancholy and blending folk, blues and rock (with a heavy nod to Nick Drake and Neil Young) – is clearly impressive, too. The songs are presented today without the all-frills production and sea of choral music that the Foxes have made their hallmark, and are the better for it.

The night proper began with "No Occasion" ("I looked down on the infinite and saw no occasion for regret or pride or fear"), "When I Light Your Darkened Door" ("There are roses in your hair, and a lily on your breast, and a longing in your heart, will you be ashamed?") and "Firstborn", in which hastily slapped guitar strings are laid over warm lyrics which evoke the warmth and wisdom of parental guidance. Tillman's sad, aching voice sits over the occasional instrumental. Many of the songs have Biblical references. When banter occurs, it is likeable and witty, with the musician proving himself to be funny, better when responding to the crowd's shouts than when sinking into the self-conscious pretence that he has only a vague notion of where he was.

The evening built to its climax with "An Occurrence at the River Jordan", a reprise of the earlier "All You See" (which had begun the evening with a barely audible guitar) and "New Imperial Grand Blues", more upbeat for the addition of pulsating piano chords and some deft ululating guitar solos.

In the end, there was a bit too much chin-stroking tonight, but with members this good, it is no wonder that Fleet Foxes have garnered the amount of hype they have in recent times. Vacilando, by the way, is a Spanish word, meaning "a wanderer for whom the experience of moving around is more important than the reaching of a destination". Long may Tillman's travels continue.

Biography
Regina's distinguished blend of electronic beats, folk and world music, female vocals sung in Finnish and some wild percussion introduces a unique blend that mixes the best pop music influences from the 60s to the 90s. Combining snapshot like stories of every day life, Regina's original sound resonates on the threshold of mundane and magical realism while sometimes extending its reach into pure fantasy.

In 2005 Regina released their highly acclaimed debut album Katso maisemaa(2006) released by a Finnish label Next Big Thing, and was chosen in several polls as one of the best Finnish albums of the year. Their follow up album, Oi miten suuria voimia!, was released in the beginning of 2007, and was similarly a highly acclaimed success – being nominated for the Finnish Grammy award, Emma, in the Critic's choice category. In the end of 2007, Regina independently released a Christmas single, Näinä mustina iltoina, that immediately became an indie hit, also beyond Finland's borders.

The third studio album by the group, Puutarhatrilogia. will be released in the beginning of 2009 by a traditional Finnish indie label, Johanna Kustannus.

So far, the band's albums and singles have also been released in Sweden, Japan, and Taiwan. It has actively been touring in Scandinavian countries, Central Europe, Baltic region and Russia.

Jack White's newest stripe
By Randy Lewis
March 12, 2009
Reporting from Nashville -- Jack White took the wraps off his new band here Wednesday night, launching phase three of his ever-evolving career with a 20-minute live performance by Dead Weather, fronted by the Kills singer Alison Mosshart, at the site of his new Third Man Records headquarters.

The private show, attended by about 150 invitees, took place in the downtown building that houses not only the label's offices but a performance space, a record store specializing in vinyl, a photo studio and a darkroom.

The band's debut album, "Horehound," is due in June, and the first single will be "Hang You From the Heavens," which Third Man is issuing on a 7-inch vinyl single as well as making it available for download.

He turned most of his attention to the Raconteurs after White Stripes drummer Meg White pulled out of a planned 2007 tour because of sudden-onset anxiety. But they reportedly have been recording periodically and resurfaced about three weeks ago for a performance on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" for the host's final show before taking over his new duties chairing " The Tonight Show."

The shy percussionist, along with the Raconteurs' Brendan Benson, was on hand Wednesday to show support for Dead Weather, which with songs built on gargantuan guitar and bass hooks, thunderous drums and Mosshart's yearning vocals, has more in common sonically with stripped-down White Stripes and, occasionally, the sinister rock of the Kills than that of the Raconteurs.

She wasn't talking, but White's manager said the duo was still alive and well. "They've made a movie and there will be a new album out, probably next year," Ian Montone said.

JAGJAGUWAR
Everything is coming together in Julie Doiron's world, from embracing her electric past, to embarking on a new and energetic phase of her solo career with some of the most upbeat and inspiring songs of her recording career." I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day" -- which arrives on the heels of the album Lost Wisdom(2008), Doiron and her bandmate Fred Squire's recent critically-acclaimed collaboration with Mt. Eerie -- presents listeners with an album that reflects both her continued growth as an artist and a renewed optimism as a songwriter as well. As has often been the case, Doiron's songwriting is rooted in what's happening around her.

More than any other songwriter, you can tell exactly what's going on in her life. Direct and painfully honest, she lays it all out in her lyrics. "I just sing about what's happening," she admits, resigned to her style. "I don't know how to do anything else. I don't know how to write any other way. I've wanted to... I've tried! Because sometimes I feel like maybe I shouldn't be so direct, but I don't know how." In the past, listeners have shared in the heartbreak of loneliness, the break-up of a band, the grind of raising young kids, and the dark fears anyone can slip into during a relationship. While the direct approach is still very present, this time she's almost the happiest woman in town. "I keep saying that it's a change in a positive direction. I've started to love life most of the time, and I'm happy, and I'm having a great time raising my kids."

In addition to this new perspective, Doiron has made an album which showcases a thick distortion and melodic pop not heard since her days with indie heroes Eric's Trip in the '90s. It's part of a desire to get back to her electric days with that band. The past couple of years have seen Eric's Trip regroup for triumphant reunion tours, and a rekindling of her work with Trip mainstay Rick White (who produced her 2007 Polaris Prize-nominated album Woke Myself Up, and returned for this album). I Can Wonder was recorded at White's isolated home studio, just northwest of Toronto. Doiron handled the electric and acoustic guitar parts, Rick played all the bass and keyboards, and Fred Squire performed all the drums and some lead guitar. Squire, who comes from Sackville, New Brunswick, is Julie's bandmate in another of her projects, Calm Down It's Monday.

Nouvelle+Vague_convert_20090316100612.gif
Nouvelle Vague is a French musical collective led by musicians Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux. Their name is a play on words referring simultaneously to their "Frenchness" and "artiness" (the '60s new wave of cult French cinema), the source of their songs (all covers of punk rock, post-punk, and New Wave songs), and their use of '60s Bossa nova-style arrangements.

On their first album, Nouvelle Vague, the group resurrected classics from the New Wave music era, and reinterpreted them in a bossa nova style. The songs were stripped back to acoustic arrangements with lithe shaker rhythms achieved by gathering a parade of chanteuses from all over the world (six French, one Brazilian and one New Yorker) to cover bands including XTC, Modern English, The Clash, Joy Division and The Undertones. The various female singers on Nouvelle Vague only performed songs they had never heard before, to ensure that each cover would have a unique quality. (Wikipedia Nouvelle Vague)

Union (2009)

Union is the second album by The Boxer Rebellion, released worldwide on January 11, 2009 only through iTunes.The album is said to have overtaken sales of Coldplay, Kings of Leon and MGMT on the US iTunes.

January 2009 , the band released their second full-length album Union.
It was exclusively released via iTunes with the lead single "Evacuate" (previously a limited edition vinyl release in 2008) was hosted as iTunes single of the week.

The band plan to physically release the album on CD and vinyl sometime later in 2009.

Due to the lack of a physical copy of the album Union being available, the Boxer Rebellion could not enter the official UK chart based on downloads alone despite high charting positions.

This sparked a backlash by the band's fans and achieved media coverage in the NME, The Telegraph and The Evening Standard. Wikipedia(The Boxer Rebellion,Current Activity)

Death Cab for Cutie is an American indie rock band formed in Bellingham, Washington in 1997. The band consists of Benjamin Gibbard (vocals, guitar), Chris Walla (guitar, production), Nicholas Harmer (bass) and Jason McGerr (drums).

Gibbard took the band name from the title of the song written by Neil Innes and Vivian Stanshall and performed by their group the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band in The Beatles' 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour.

Wikipedia(Death Cab for Cutie,Musical style)
Death Cab for Cutie's early work on 'You Can Play These Songs with Chords'(originally released on cassette, and it proved so popular, Gibbard decided to recruit other members to make a full band, which would go on to record 'Something About Airplanes' ) was described by Rolling Stone as "emotion through its lack of emotion".
Rolling Stone reviewed 'Transatlanticism'(fourth studio album) and commented that it contained "melodic, melancholy songs about feeling both smart and confused, hopelessly romantic but wary of love."

Pitchfork Media also remarked that the work on the cassette was "ultra-lo-fi".
On 'Something About Airplanes'(debut studio album) the band's style remained similar, with some new instrumental work introduced; "flute, synth, or cello" were noted by Allmusic's Nitsuh Abebe.
On 'We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes'(second studio album) the band again expanded their use of unorthodox instruments, including organ and glockenspiel.

Gibbard's voice was described as "plaintive boy-next-door" Entertainment Weekly commented on the music on 'Plans'(fifth studio album), saying "The lush arrangements are long on hothouse organs and pianos, but short on the squirmy guitars and squirrelly beats that, on Gibbard's best work, offset his sweet voice and borderline-maudlin poetics with a sense of emotional danger."

The band's music on Plans was described by the Dallas Morning News as "a literate, whispery style, the kind of stuff that normally sounds better in headphones than in large venues".

Rockferry is the Grammy and Brit Award winning, debut studio album by Welsh singer Duffy, first released on 3 March 2008 by Mercury Records in collaboration with Universal Records in the US and with Polydor Records in the UK. The album became a worldwide success, becoming the best selling album in the UK in 2008, with 1.7 million copies sold. The album was the fourth best selling album of 2008 worldwide. by Wikipedia (Rockferry)

Duffy has revealed that both "Mercy" and "Stepping Stone" are autobiographical; "Mercy" is about "sexual liberty" and "not doing something somebody else wants you to do", and "Stepping Stone" is about not expressing her feelings to a person she fell in love with.

'Warwick Avenue' was the second single released from the album. The video for the song was filmed at Warwick Avenue underground station and Merrick Square, London.

In November 2008, the single 'Rain On Your Parade' was released. The song was co-written & produced by Steve Booker. Duffy describes this song as "a big, disco-y dance song".

Fleet Foxes are a five-piece Seattle-based band signed to Sub Pop and Bella Union.( Robin Pecknold Skyler Skjelset J. Tillman Casey Wescott
Christian Wargo)

The band came to prominence in 2008 with the release of their second EP, 'Sun Giant', and their debut full length album' Fleet Foxes'. Both Sun Giant and their eponymous debut album received much critical praise and reviewers often noted their use of refined lyrics and vocal harmonies. The quintet describe their music as "baroque harmonic pop jams". by Wikipedia"Fleet Foxes"

Drawing influence from the traditions of folk music, pop, choral music and gospel, sacred harp singing, West Coast music, traditional music from Ireland to Japan, film scores, and their NW peers, Fleet Foxes ranges in subject matter from the natural world and familial bonds to bygone loves and stone cold graves.

Muse are an English rock band that was formed in England in 1994. Since their inception, the band has comprised Matthew Bellamy (vocals, guitar, piano), Christopher Wolstenholme (bass guitar, vocals, keyboards) and Dominic Howard (drums, percussion).

In the February issue of Australian youth magazine jMag, published by radio station Triple J, it was said that Matt Bellamy had announced in the band's forum that he had written the "hardest song ever". He said "There's a new song in three parts, which I have been working on sporadically for many years. As a large percentage of the composition is orchestral... I've been arranging the orchestral elements myself, which is taking a long time." He hopes that the tracks will feature as the finale to their fifth album. In a series of interviews at the 2009 NME Awards on 25 February, Bellamy revealed that the album was approximately half completed and should be released, in conjunction with a tour, at the end of summer 2009.by Wikipedia (Current and future plans)

About Hayley Sales by MySpace
Her major label debut, 'Sunseed' is entirely her vision, recorded primarily in her family's Glass Wing Studios. Sales wrote the songs, chose the musicians, contributes acoustic guitar, piano and vocals and is the record's sole producer. As a result, 'Sunseed' is no happy accident. In fact, according to Hayley, it was a lifetime in the making. "I was born in a Washington, D.C. ghetto," she explains, "in a Victorian hippie house my mom had lived in since she was a baby.

My father had a basement recording studio where everyone from Miles Davis to rap artists were coming in.

Those were the first few years of my life. I was raised with that music, with the beats and the melodies that vibrated the house - they were the soundtrack I danced and sang to."

"l remember first hearing Judy Garland when I was six. Something in me loved it right awayI trained myself to sing listening to her! As a kid, I listened to Judy Garland, '40's jazz, reggae and 60's music, until middle school, when I realized 'oh, there's modern music, too!' I've fallen in love deeply with lots of musical styles, and now they are all mixed in together into my own." You can hear the multi-generational influences merging together throughout Sunseed, ranging from reggae to jazz to rock.

"I respect Dave Matthews, Ben Harper and Jack Johnson so much for what they are doing," Sales enthuses, "for making music that is getting airplay while at the same time bringing the heart of music back into the music industry. That is what I hope to do."

"Music is an exchange of energies, and I love the exchange. It makes me feel good and inspires me to write music that I hope makes other people feel good."

Only what you want

"Oats We Sow " In Your Dreams (2007)
Someday i'll toss all your presents
and bury the letters left unsent
cause it's bad to do what's easy
just cause it's easy
and i wanna do what pleases me but i can't

the road, she'd roll round the side of the mountain
with nowhere to go
but the heart, we know,
when it's needin it's careenin toward bein alone

someday i'll find the mind to mend it
and make dry these eyes i've gotten wet
cause it's bad to do what's easy just cause it's easy
i wanna do what pleases me but i can't

the crow, he'd mow half the grass on the knoll
with nowhere to go
but the heart, we know,
when it's lovin it's leanin toward bein alone

the oats we sow,
they could seed on forever with nowhere to grow
but the heart, we know,
when it's askin its exact twin it will not be alone

Serge Gainsbourg is a directing composer in film,"Je t'aime … moi non plus (1976)".
He is best known for a number of pop songs in the 60s and 70s.
The film is an awkward story where Joe Dallesandro plays a gay garbage truck driver who falls in love with an androgyne woman played by Jane Birkin. They can't have sex, until Johnny-Jane (Birkin's character) proclaims "I am a boy" and turns over.
"Ballade de Johnny-Jane" brings much needed tempo after the three slow tracks opening this compilation.

Transparent knives(2007)
Promise and the Monster is the moniker of Billie Lindahl, a singer-songwriter from Sweden who has made her rounds in twee pop and post-rock.
Billie Lindahl makes music that is built on contrast, contradiction and a cold acoustic soundscape.
The name Promise and the Monster holds the foundation to all the music she makes; contrast. Billie thought that Promise and the Monster visually would have a horror movie aesthetic in the style of Marilyn Manson. And the very first contrast she was interested in was the fascination and the feeling of disgust in front of her own and other peoples’ bodies. And that’s why she wanted pictures of flesh, with neural paths and veins, on her album cover. But that’s not what happened. She says,
”I’m going towards contrast like never before. And this is good because I realized that my music is sort of like a weird forest with weird animals inside”
