My Best Friend Is You is the second album by English singer-songwriter Kate Nash, released in the United Kingdom on 19 April 2010. The album was originally going to be called Crayon Full Of Colour, but was changed to My Best Friend Is You after fans were said to have complained on her website that the album name was too similar to a recent single called "Pencil Full of Lead" by fellow British singer Paolo Nutini.

The first single from the album was called "Do Wah Doo", and was released on 12 April 2010. The album was released on 20 April. The sound was described as completely different from her debut album and having a "Girl Group" sound, taking influence from Motown stars such as Diana Ross and The Supremes. Nash explained that maturity is the reason for the change in musical style. The album has been described as having a wide variety of sounds from wall of sound, Motown to No Wave and Riot Grrrl.Mansion Song received many critical comments about how nash has pure excellence in poetry and writing that effects the listener.

lastfmlogo.jpg last.fm The New Pornographers Biography
The New Pornographers are a Canadian indie rock group formed in 1997 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Their sound is influenced by that of such power pop bands as The Cars and Cheap Trick, but they use much more sophisticated rhythms and chord changes. Although it was widely reported that the New Pornographers got their name from a pamphlet put out by televangelist Jimmy Swaggart condemning rock ‘n’ roll as “the new pornography,” Carl Newman has stated that he came up with the name after watching a Japanese film called The Pornographers.

Carl Newman, who writes most of the band’s material, has said, ”When I seriously started to try to write songs, my main influences were, like, Burt Bacharach, Jim Webb, and Brian Wilson. Those were the guys I kinda looked at their music and went, ‘What the hell are they doing here?’ I was just fascinated by the structures and the harmonics.”

The melody of the first and eponymous track on their second album Electric Version, for instance, begins with an arpeggiated diminished triad ―- a rare and strange opening flourish for a pop song.

The band has released four albums to date:
Mass Romantic (2000)
Electric Version (2003)
Twin Cinema (2005)
Challengers (2007)

The band members include:
- Carl Newman - vocals, guitar, ebow, synthesizer, harmonica, pump organ, xylophone
- Dan Bejar - vocals, guitar, synthesizer, melodion
- Kathryn Calder - vocals, piano
- Neko Case - vocals
- John Collins - bass, guitar, synthesizer, ebow, vocals
- Kurt Dahle - drums, percussion, vocals
- Todd Fancey - guitar
- Blaine Thurier - synthesizer
- Nora O’Connor - vocals

The New Pornographers are frequently referred to as an indie supergroup because of the following members’ associations:
- Carl Newman, solo artist (as A.C. Newman), also of Superconductor and Zumpano
- Dan Bejar of Destroyer,Swan Lake and Vancouver Nights.
- Kathryn Calder of Immaculate Machine.
- Neko Case, solo artist, also of Maow and Cub
- John Collins of The Evaporators
- Kurt Dahle of Limblifter and Age of Electric
- Todd Fancey of Fancey
- Blaine Thurier, independent filmmaker
- Nora O’Connor of The Blacks and Andrew Bird’s Bowl of Fire

Newman, however, doesn’t care for the term: ”I’m really tired of that supergroup label, and I wish people would stop using it. None of us were known at all outside of Canada ―- I just don’t think it’s accurate.”

official website Stafrænn Hákon Biography here
Catchy melodies and euphoric compositions constitute Stafrænn Hákon´s sixth album, Sanitas. The songs are yet intense and powerful and an adventurous continuation of Stafrænn Hákon´s last release, Gummi that Gaz – eta described as a wild ride the band again took the listener on. Stafrænn Hákon has through the last years been described as a mix of post-rock, lo-fi, ambient guitar & electronica which still holds true to some extent though he with each album takes a giant leap and keeps growing as a musician. On Sanitas, Stafrænn Hákon travels to the other side of the sound spectrum, gradually moving further from electronica, subtle compositions and soothing melodies towards more straight forward, rock orientated compositions which the artist himself often describes as Power-Ambient, currently only audible to left handed polar bears. On Sanitas, Stafrænn Hákon continues his explorative journey, this time by taking another daring but natural step towards more pop oriented and singalong melodies, something that a few years ago sounded unlikely for the ambient post-rock/electronica band.

Samuel White and Olafur Josephsson continue their close collaboration – a childhood friendship, that developed into a creative partnership keeps growing and developing. Samuel composed 4 tracks on this record that are in line with his former compositions, but this time more upbeat. As the producer of Sanitas, Daniel Lovegrove has undeniably become a vital part of Stafrænn Hakon, with his intense drumming and extensive arrangements, including vocals on 2 tracks as well as playing bass. On Sanitas we see fantastic contributions from Lárus Sigurðsson (a member of the side-project Calder) with his rich acoustic instrumentations, as well as vocals from Minco Eggersman and Magnús Freyr Gíslason. Stafrænn Hákon has collaborated with a broad range of artists and musicians and was aired at the late John Peel´s radio sessions amongst others. He has released material on The U.S based indie label Secret Eye, Resonant Records, Awkward Silence, Chat Blanc, Japanese Nature Bliss, and now for the first time on Darla Records (U.S & EU) and Happy Prince (ASIA).

Two girls from Amsterdam, Holland who travelled the world together, lived in a house without tv and internet for a while and then decided to form a band together. They make singer/songwriteresque pop with dreamy beats like Nick Drake or Bon Iver would make if they would have lived in the 60s and would have been girls.

The+Fall+mark_e_smith.jpg

Wikipedia The Fall
The Fall are an English post-punk group, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester in 1976. The group has existed in some form ever since, and is essentially built around its founder and only constant member Mark E. Smith. First associated with the punk movement of the late 1970s, the group's music has gone through several stylistic changes over the years. However, The Fall's music is often characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's vocals and often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy (sometimes more implied than clearly stated, but apparent nonetheless)."[1]
The group's output is prolific―as of April 2008 they have released 27 studio albums, and more than triple that counting live albums and other releases. They have never achieved widespread public success beyond a handful of minor hit singles in the late 1980s, but have maintained a strong cult following. The band were long associated with BBC disc jockey John Peel, who championed them from early on in their career and cited The Fall as his favourite band, famously explaining, "They are always different; they are always the same."

LCD Soundsystem LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening (new album / video)
Leaked from the much-anticipated new LCD Soundsystem album, This Is Happening, “Drunk Girls” has been burning up the Internet since the weekend. If this track and a snippet of another new song “Pow Pow” are any indication, the new album finds James Murphy and co. no worse for wear, despite what was apparently a grueling recording/producing process for Murphy and rumors of uncertainty over the band’s long-term future. “Drunk Girls” is the kind of hybrid electro-punk single you’d expect from LCD, something in between a boozy booty-shaking anthem for chin-stroking indies and some subliminal braininess for the clubbing set.

So goes the official “Drunk Girls” video, which shows the band undergoing a series of trials and tribulations at the hands of their panda-costumed friends. It looks like a party, albeit one that’s taken a do-stuff-to-your-passed-out-friends turn for the worst. The video was directed by Spike Jonze.

lastfmlogo.jpg last.fm The Chemical Brothers Biography
The Chemical Brothers are a British electronic music duo comprising Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, who met at the University of Manchester, England in 1992. Initially they called themselves “The Dust Brothers.” They changed their name in 1995 given the preexisting American production duo “The Dust Brothers,” their burgeoning popularity and the threat of legal action from the originals. Thus, their first album as The Chemical Brothers was titled Exit Planet Dust.

Along with The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, The Crystal Method, Underworld, Orbital, Apollo 440 and a few other less-known acts, they were pioneers at bringing the big beat electronic dance genre to the forefront of pop culture. They are known for their high-quality DJ sets, an example of which can be found on their album Brothers Gonna Work It Out.

Many of their tracks have been in the UK charts as well as those in other countries. Wide belief is that their best album is “Surrender” however “Dig Your Own Hole” is considered their masterwork by a significant number of Chemical Brother connoisseurs and they are known for producing a style which evolves greatly between albums.

lastfmlogo.jpg last.fm Inlets Biography
A worrier, childhood choir member, and unfocused student of many instruments, Sebastian Krueger marries the darker ornaments of baroque pop with lo-fi intimacy. Far from his Wisconsin roots and perfunctory piano lessons, he works out of a small Brooklyn apartment as Inlets, incubating songs over the course of months and creating short, dusty suites.

Thanksgiving of 2006 brought the free online release of Inlets’ first offering, The Vestibule EP, an eight-song collection that won round praise from music blogs including Stereogum, Gorilla vs Bear, Said The Gramophone, and Le Blogotheque. Framed by eclectic layers of clustered woodwinds, brass, and percussive guitars, the record captured a personal and raw enterprise.

Rather than promote the new project, Krueger dug in and committed to the slow process of writing an ambitious collection of new songs. Now, Inter Arbiter picks up where Vestibule left off, but the scope is wider and the hues are sharper. Krueger has honed his arranging abilities, creating elegant high drama from bursts of strings and discord from jangly cheap guitars.

Inter Arbiter is due April 20th via Two Syllable Records.

lastfmlogo.jpg Anna Maria Jopek Biography

Anna Maria Jopek (born 14 December 1970 in Warsaw) is a Polish musician and singer.
Anna has been known for some of the most influential and groundbreaking projects in popular Polish music. She is a classically trained pianist who graduated from Chopin’s Academy of Music in Warsaw, Poland who broadened her scope of musical influences after studying briefly at the Manhattan School of Music’s Jazz Department.
Anna now embraces a number of musical influences from classical to jazz and from pop to folk. With 14 albums of her own, she has performed and recorded with many important Polish artists including numerous concerts and recordings with an ECM-based trumpeter Tomasz Stanko. During the Jazz Jamboree International Festival 40th Anniversary Gala she performed with one of the greatest jazz saxophonists of our times: Joe Lovano. In 2008 she performed with yet another all time hero of hers, Bobby Mc Ferrin. Cameo appearances live with Chris Botti soon followed.


“Please do not file my music under jazz” - Anna Maria Jopek says, though. “Nor under pop, folk…whatever. I embrace a lot of influences. Jazz is by far the most important in its freedom, its harmony and its sense of time, but I was brought up with the old Polish folk songs. So I’m kind of rooted here in all these Slavic landscapes and sounds”.
With 10 albums of her own Anna Maria Jopek performed and recorded with all the important artists in Poland including numerous concerts and recordings with an ECM-based trumpeter Tomasz Stańko. During the Jazz Jamboree International Festival 40th Anniversary Gala in 1998 she performed with the one of the greatest jazz musicians of our time: Joe Lovano. In 2003 at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw, invited by the First Family Anna gave a small recital broadcasted live and dueted with the pop icon, former King Crimson frontman, Gordon Haskell.

DEAD IN THE WATER
IT'S NOT A PAID VACATION
THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF CITY OFFICIALS ATTEND DEMONSTRATIONS
IT'S HARDLY A SINK OR SWIM
WHEN ALL IS WELL IF THE TICKET SELLS

OUT WITH A WHIMPER
IT'S NOT A BLAZE OF GLORY
YOU LOOK DOWN FROM YOUR TEMPLE
AS PEOPLE ENDEAVOR TO MAKE IT A STORY
AND CHISEL A MARBLE WORD
BUT ALL IS LOST IF IT'S NEVER HEARD

BUT I'VE GOT SOMEONE TO MAKE REPORTS
THAT TELL ME HOW MY MONEY'S SPENT
TO BOOK MY STAYS AND DRAW MY BLINDS
SO I CAN'T SEE WHAT'S REALLY THERE
AND ALL I NEED'S A GREAT BIG CONGRATULATIONS

I'LL KEEP YOUR DREAMS
YOU PAY ATTENTION FOR ME
AS STRANGE AS IT SEEMS
I'D RATHER DISSOLVE THAN HAVE YOU IGNORE ME
THE GROUND MAY BE MOVING FAST
BUT I TIED MY BOOTS TO A BROKEN MAST

THE DIFFERENCE IS CLEAR
YOU THROW IT IN YOUR CAULDRON
RUST AND VENEER, DUSK AND DAWN
STEINWAYS AND BALDWINS
YOU START WITH A SIMPLE STOCK OF ALL THE WASTE
AND SALT TO TASTE

BUT DAMN MY LUCK AND DAMN THESE FRIENDS
THAT KEEP ON COMBING BACK THEIR SMILES
I SAVE MY GRACE WITH HALF-ASSED GUILT
AND LAY DOWN THE QUILT UPON THE LAWN
SPREAD MY ARMS AND SOAK UP CONGRATULATIONS

A year later, they released their second album, Something Real, which was their first album released under Doghouse Records.
In 2009, Meg & Dia released their third album ‘Here, Here and Here.’ The songs ‘What If’ and ‘Black Wedding’ have since been released as singles.(last.fm Meg&Dia Biography)

Going Away

Please don't forget me, I'm going away
I'm taking a taxi to Kentucky where they don't need to know
All about me, I just need to feel safe
Got a thousand sweaters and shoes and paintings to hide
Skeletons in my bed
Don't ask where I'm going

I'm going away
I'm going my way
Finally it's my time
to be lonely, and lost, unloveed and I can't wait
Don't forget what I said
don't forget my letter
every night I pray for you
I don't got no religion
Isn't it that something
I'll miss those days,

I saved that bottle, it's now 10 years aged
I've got some bibles I could sell for money
And a pair of fresh shaved legs
Won't you baby come with me, I've got extra space
In my car, in my heart, in my mind
Look there's the passenger seat by the postcards you gave (Don't know where i'm going)

I'm going away
I'm going my way
Finally it's my time
to be lonely, and lost, unloved and I can't wait
Don't forget what I said
don't forget my letter
every night I pray you
I don't got no religion
Isn't that something
I'll miss those days

But he said "slow down, slow down
Think it over, we've all got wretched closets
Silly girl, pride kills more than aids
Lately" i said "come on
I've thought it over
I Don't wanna die here
I have no desire to get married"

I can't race the others anymore,
no I must learn to race myself.

I'm going away
I'm going my way
Finally it's my time
to be lonely, and lost, unloved and I can't wait
Please forget what I said (I'll find my way)
Please forget my letter
every night I pray for you
I don't got a religion
Isn't that something
I'll miss those days

I, I'm not going halfway (i'll find my way)
I, I
every night I pray for you
dont believe in heaven
or that it could be a happy place
I, I'm going away

last.fm The Radio Dept.Biography
The Radio Dept. is a Swedish pop band signed to Labrador Records. They have released three full length albums, and a series of singles and EPs. The band originated in Lund, Sweden.
In 1995, The Radio Dept. was formed by Elin Almered and Johan Duncanson (who were old school friends). The name was taken from a gas station/radio repair shop in Lund, Sweden, which had a large sign with the name Radioavdelningen, (“The Radio Department” in Swedish) hanging outside their shop.
Since 1995 members have been coming and going and at some points there has never really been a Radio Department at all.
Martin Carlberg and Johan Duncanson started playing together in 1998 and decided to use the name The Radio Dept. Since then the band has done lots of gigs and lots of recordings. The Radio Dept. recorded 4-tracks in friends’ living rooms or at home, in smelly warehouse, in demo studios with blinking fluorescent lightning and at schools.
In the autumn of 2001 Lisa Carlberg and Per Blomgren (Bass & drums respectively), joined the band and they started rehearsing in the way bands so often do. Soon afterwards they were all joined by Daniel Tjader on the keyboards. Their recordings were sent to the music magazine Sonic and got a nice review. They were also on the free CD sampler that comes with the magazine. That’s where Labrador Records discovered and learned to love the band. Now they’re a part of Sweden’s finest indie label.

Monsters+of+Folk+monstersoffolk.jpg

Five years ago, when Jim James, Mike Mogis, Conor Oberst and M. Ward first toured together, they were a study in contrasts as well as in camaraderie. Ward, hauntingly delivering his own blues and folk-based tunes, took a spare, intimate approach. My Morning Jacket vocalist and guitarist James, on the other hand, was already reaching for the rafters with his keening, echo-laden voice. Oberst -- with his long-time producer, multi-instrumentalist and Bright Eyes mainstay Mogis -- offered both candor and drama in songs that fell somewhere between confession and fever dream.

That was a rare, up-close opportunity to watch the interaction among these young artists, a send-off, in a way, as each went on to greater individual acclaim. But it was also just the beginning, a prelude to the collaborative adventure of making their first record together -- an album years in the planning and months in the making, one that has turned out to be far more than the already impressive sum of their parts.

The soulful, dreamy opener to Monsters Of Folk’s self-titled album tackles big spiritual questions, and its official video tries to put this all in perspective. Director/animator Lauri Faggioni begins among the stars and zooms to the cellular level, in a clip reminiscent of Charles and Ray Eames classic Powers Of 10 short film. Of course MOF’s video goes deeper, revealing a whole universe inside us. Wild. Members Jim James, M. Ward, Mike Mogis, and Conor Oberst are likely busy with their other projects, so you don’t get to see them here ― a bummer if you were hoping to see what the universe inside James’s beard looked like.
