Its very hard to feature a musician that hasn't been blogged before and whom you couldn't contact to for those Press Kit and stuff. My saving grace is at least there were some decent portraits to choose from. Thanks for another great recommendation Saige. Jax Panik sound spells for a sexy mix of pop, rock, and electro, with catchy hooks, emo lyrics, sing-along choruses, and loads of dance appeal. If that kind of charm works for you, then you should listen to his 'Cigarettes and Cinnamon' (just get by the 1st minute and you'll be alright). Awesome.+/-
I was not planning on posting this however my brother is sick in love with the beat. Maybe its a grower. One thing I know is not to expect less from Mos Def. 'Life in Marvelous Times is availabe via iTunes and his new album 'The Ecstatic' will drop this 24th of November.

YUNÅ's 'Rocket' is an absolute exquisite. I don't post single songs for nothing so good luck in getting this off your mind after.
I can't believe we almost got famous for nothing babyRocket by YUNÅ
You came the last minute of --- to save me
I can't believe we almost got paid for nothing baby
Cause even if they go away
I got the feeling that you're gonna stay
Florence and the Machine's 'Kiss with a Fist' is my constant rotation these days. I guess I just couldn't say no to the drums. At first I can't figure out if the track was specially done by a single artist and a band. Florence and the Machine actually is a creative collaboration of 'Florence Welch', UK quality songwriter/singer and her 'Machine', standing nearby playing an instrument. With the help of her 'Machine' she subdued teasing and eardrum-numbing beats in a music generation of streaming female trailblazers.+/-
I wanna go live and die in Paris. Doesn't everyone? All the cool people are just there. Im working on my French and hopefully Ill get there, someday. Hehe. Now one of these chosen entities Im referring to is Dan Black. If you're familiar with Sam Sparro and Walter Meego , who by the way is a solo avant-garde disco act, you'll also like him. Dan Black is currently working on his debut album to be release next year.
Living in self imposed exile in Paris, Dan Black meshes sounds and genres with the same fluidity, ease and cultural nous as his heroes David Bowie and The Neptunes to create his own blue-eyed culture clash of soul, hip hop, rock and electronica and the result is utterly beguiling.Yours

The Killers officially has the funniest and most intriguing lyrics.
It started with a low lightHmmm... If 'Spaceman' gets your taste buds mad, wait for the release of their new album, 'Day and Age' this Nov 24.
Next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed
And then they took my blood type
They left a strange impression in my head
Spaceman by The Killers
The world definitely is going crazy over M.I.A. A new album is in the woodworks but mp3s has been already flying everywhere. I aint complaining though, here's a new track from the Sri Lankan chick.
S.U.S. (Save Ur Soul) aka “Way Down In The Hole” by M.I.A. x Blaqstarr
If you're in for killer harmonious instruments, Medeski, Martin & Wood is the name you're looking for. I always go for vocals but this jazzfunksoul brothers does perfect without it. They have a new record, 'Radiolarians 1'- the first of a three part series of new recordings and I was lucky to be given a copy. Here's a few tracks for you to listen to this amazing ensemble.+/-

Gladshot gives me a happy tingling feeling inside.One thing I like about them is the positive substance of their songs whilst referring to heart-drenching tales. A band whose sound is honest, versatile and listener-friendly should be given a chance to unfold their music to the rest of the populace. +/-
