UPDATED!!

Out of This World

Photobucket

I was drawn to this band through a friend but basically the brains behind the ads of IPod introduced me to them. I don't know, maybe I have a thing for bands with relations to galactic names and thereof. Also, the shrilling sound and magnetic strains will grab you by the neck. I dig it but others might not. I told you already so don't blame me.+/-

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour

What the songs have in common is a sense of adventure and a feeling of freedom you rarely find in pop music anymore. The sounds of different decades rub shoulders as though they have always partied together and there is a genuine warmth that comes partly from friends making music purely for the love of it and partly from Lars’s vintage recording equipment.

Right now The Asteroids Galaxy Tour are busy rehearsing for festival season - in an underground air-raid shelter built during Cold War time.

Ana Laan

Photobucket

Genteeled from different cultures, it is just expected of Ana Laan's music to be refined as well. Stockholm satire and the Latin tonal pattern trademark is very eminent in her songs. Her single, 'Paradise' is a bonus track on ITunes but hey, the song is so rad that I bet it'll encourage you to buy her album.+/-

Ana Laan

The startling, romantic voice of singer Ana Laan was born in Madrid and matured in Stockholm, Sweden. The daughter of a Spanish professor of literature and an American mother, Ana was raised in a home where learning was revered and multi-culturalism was the norm.

She has felt what the outsider feels as she has traveled from country to country which makes the intimacy and domestic charm of her debut Nardis Music release all the more remarkable. It is the other side of her internationalism, the voice of the internal emigre, so common in the world today as we all seek our own geographic and emotional roots. Ana Lann has learned to personalize the modern human condition in a very intimate way.
Paradise sounds pretty nice
But nothing could be better than this

O'Death

Photobucket

I anticipated some wouldn't really get O'Death. Now don't get that bloody prejudice inside your head. Actually, this band flows folk songs with a dash of country and gothic variations. Although I haven't heard their past two albums which by the way are greatly recommended by others, the new one, Broken Hymns, Limbs and Skin proved their explicit skill in tickling the senses of their listeners. If you wanna go grab a copy, you gotta wait til Oct 28 for the actual release. Watch out also for their upcoming tour. I heard they're really good live. +/-

O'Death

O’Death features six members who can lead a straight-up hoot-nanny full of boot-stomping “goth-country” songs. These good ol’ boys use fiddles, guitars, ukuleles, banjos, and trombones to get their rockin’ revelry started. They list some of their influences as being “whiskey” and “Appalachian mountain music,” which is very accurate, but I also hear Neil Young, especially in Greg Jamie’s vocals
