Random Post: The Housemartins- Build

The Housemartins- Build


Different artists have been surfacing in the blog world lately. Others are extraordinarily good and some are...mediocre or too much indie. I have even featured others here. Now, Im giving you a rundown of some and their tracks with their latest album. Do they deserved the fuss? You find out. Not in particular order. The Ting Tings (We Started Nothing) +/- The Ting Tings are an English electropop band, with Dear Eskiimo’s Jules De Martino (drums & vocals) & Katie White (vocals, guitar & bass drum). They formed in 2006 while based in Islington Mill, Salford. The Ting Tings’ first single “That’s Not My Name” was released on local label Switchflicker, and together with their second single “Fruit Machine”, were on heavy rotation in British radio (amongst others BBC 6 Music, played regularly by many DJs including a session for Steve Lamacq), are considered indie music hits. “Fruit Machine” was a limited-edition, 500-only seven-inch single on Legendre Starkie Records, which was o

Skins is The Best Show Ever!

Skins Ok maybe not the best, but its certainly on the top of my current list. Why? Gossip Girl encountered its fair share of criticism about its sex, drugs, and other vaguely inappropriate content when it premiered last Fall. But frankly, the Upper East Siders have nothing on the cast of Skins, the British show that premieres Sunday on BBC America. This show takes the limits of American TV and stomps all over them — and that's even without the edited-out language and nudity. +/- Skins, which just wrapped up its second season in the UK, is the rare show about teenagers that's actually written by people who remember well enough what it was like to be one: The show's writing staff has an average age of 22. The main character is Tony (played by Nicholas Hoult, aka the little kid from About a Boy — just try to get your mind around that one), the hottest and most popular guy in town; he, of course, has a gorgeous girlfriend, Michelle, to go along with his status. And th

The Geeks Were Right

Eyeballs float in wet green grass I got a chainsaw motor thats filled with rain...proof when it sings like bach with eyes all bulging when the pink sun drops the eyelids fold while I'm in deep REM sleep or twilight zones I take a freight elevator and press fast forward I get to grind these teeth and beat through time If I could bring things back they'd be that WILD When I saw the future the Geeks were right The Geeks Were Right by The Faint Click to download.

Operator Please

Operator Please Operator Please is a five-piece band from the Gold Coast that formed early in 2005. Their adventure began when Elanora High School was holding its annual Battle of the Bands competition. They released their third single Just A Song About Ping Pong in Australia, debuting at #15 on the ARIA charts. +/- They also released Just A Song About Ping Pong in the UK, released their second EP Cement Cement in Australia, played Splendour In The Grass, opened for Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs and Maxïmo Park. Virgin Blue recently release their next two-year campaign based around Operator Please’s song “Get What You Want”. Disappointed you know there's never gonna be a cheery face inside this crowded room. Think you're the shit now because my lingo is so out of the loop why yes I'm out of the loop. Let's turn our noses up become a snob because we're treading on rooves cause we're so fucken cool. Oh give the act up you know you're geeks that conglomerate in

The Orion Experience

The Orion Experience In a time when music becomes so easily formulaic and repetitive, listeners are constantly looking for something new. Something refreshing. Something so far removed from shoe-gazing alt-rock that it’s almost unrecognisable. Enter the Orion Experience. This band is a welcome splash of colour on an otherwise grey soundscape. 2007 sees the New York outfit’s debut offering, Cosmicandy, and it’s galacti-licious! +/- The album could not have a more apt title—it’s sugar-sweet and vaguely futuristic, yet succeeds in bringing back memories of a simpler time (namely the era of 1970s roller-disco). Cosmicandy is flawless in its delivery, bringing soothing harmonies and a contagious positivity. It leaves a pleasantly treacly sheen around your mouth, and will have you craving more. Where's the life that was promised to me by my color T.V. Where did it all go wrong? How could I be alone again on this day? On this accursed day. So naïve, such a fool to believe, I could ever r

She is the younger sister of R&B/soul singer and Destiny’s Child member Beyoncé Knowles. +/- I'm a cool low Jane With a skip on my feet I play tough as nails With my heart on my sleeve Nothing but a sandcastle Baby don't blow me away You're a old school dude With a kick on your shoes You got crews and your handles When you spin those tunes Nothing but a sand castle Baby don't blow away I Decided Sandcastle Disco F*@k The Industry (Signed Sincerely)
