If you haven't noticed, I'm not really in the mood for blogging...

So, I'm taking some undetermined time off from this blog.

I'll be eventually fully back when I think I'm ready...

And before I go, here's Britney's new track "Womanizer"...

Sister Act

Remember Destiny's Child?
Remember Michelle Williams and her solo Gospel albums?
Well, you can forget all about it!
Michelle is back in business with a dance-pop/R&B album set to storm the charts.
This should have been what Kelly Rowland released, this should be what Beyoncé is set to release!
It's sassy, it's sweet, it's whatever you want it to be...

Drop It Like a Cadillac

When I first heard about Girlicious nothing good came to my mind.
First of all the band name is wack! They could have take it further than Girlicious... There's nothing delicious about it.
Then, they seemed like a weak version of something like The Pussycat Dolls meets Danity Kane.
Fortunatly I was wrong.
I've been listening to they're album and it's far better than the Pussycat's debut, not to mention Danity Kane's.
Stupid Shit, Already Gone, Baby Doll and Do About It are among the best tracks of the album, or even the entire year.
It is a good pop album, although it is not that good to make such an impact like PCD did in 2005.

She Had a Little Bit Too Much

Her name is Lady GaGa.
Real name Stefani Gabriella Germanotta, some say GaGa refers to Queen's tune "Radio Ga-Ga" I say bullshit.
She's a singer-songwriter and she's releasing her debut album "The Fame".
First single "Just Dance" describes how she got so drunk she doens't know where anything is, including herself, but it doens't matter, she'll just dance...
One of Electropop's finest pieces to date, we can now say Pop as we know it is dead, Electropop is rocking it up...

Extreme Makeover

This blog will suffer yet again a makeover.

Due to the fact that one reader (thanks Mahamed from Canada for the support!) hopes for us to write about general music instead of only one genre, we will mash it all up.

We will restart this Monday with something we had done previsouly, and after our coverage of The National's concert in Lisbon next Sunday.
This has been postponed.

Please meet us again soon.

Cat Power will perform live in at Coliseu dos Recreios, Lisbon and at Coliseu do Porto, the 26th and 27th May, respectively.
Unfortunatly I won't be seeing her with her bottle of wine near her piano. I already bought tickets for another event, and money runs short these days...

Indie Kylie

For those of you who think Kylie is all about fancy cutie bubblegum pop-dance, you may be a bit wrong. She has been also influenced by Indie Rock artists such as INXS (remember, Michael Hutchence was her boyfriend), Manic Street Preachers (who wrote some songs for her 1997 album Impossible Princess) and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. The most Indie song Kylie has recorded is actually her collaboration with Nick Cave for their Murder Ballads album. Where The Wild Roses Grow is also Kylie's favourite song from her repertoire. The song was written around the story of Eliza Day and her murder boyfriend. If you want to know more about it, watch the video below, or feel free to look it up at Wikipedia...

We Love Indie...

..and underground Electropop!

Please meet ...

Yes, this is the cover album

They have been victims of the music business. You see, their material haven't sold that much to chart as Mercury Records wanted, so, they have been dropped. Luckily I found them through a friend. And, yes, I do like Indie, but I also like Electropop. Especially when it's well done, bright and just great. Consider them as an underground version of Kylie Minogue... Although they are four. 3 more people than Kylie's petit persona.

You can now rest your eyes on their first video...

And True Believer, the track Kylie should cover this very instant!...

Deleted Scenes

The following text was my work assignment for one of my subjects at University. It consisted on comparing the British music scene with the American. Don't know if I reached that goal, but I passed that subject anyway. I just think this blog needs more texts than videos, so this is a good one to start...

"In a deleted scene of Pulp Fiction, Uma Thurman says that everyone is either an Elvis person or a Beatles person, somewhere along the line you have to like one more than the other. Ever since the music industry’s massification, comparisons between American music and British music have been made, without any of them being regarded as the best or the worst. American and British music have been seen either totally different as complementary. This makes sense, since America has been found by the British, consequently being influenced by Britain’s culture and customs. But there was a breach along the way.
American music started its own development with the United States rich variety of cultures and nationalities. It all started with the fusion of the Native American sounds with the rhythms brought together by the Europeans and the South Americans. Even though American music has its roots over the other continents, it was in the United States that many music genres were born. From R&B to Hip Hop, from Jazz to Rock, the States had an important role on the creation of music.
After America started Billboarding their music, the United Kingdom finally developed its music, adding to the prominent American influence, influences from English, Scottish and Irish folk music. Soon enough, British-style rock had grown and the British Invasion occurred, led by the Beatles, The Who, and The Rolling Stones among others, opposing to their American equivalents such as Elvis Presley or Bill Haley. This led to the common mainstream success of both music industries. Both American and British productions sold harmoniously together with acts like Queen, the Sex Pistols, the Ramones or Talking Heads.
During the 80’s British music started to become less influenced by American with the rise of New Wave. This became more evident with the clash, in the early 90’s, of Grunge and Britpop. While American spawned the charts with artists like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, the British answered with Oasis and Blur.
Later on, American and British music grew even apart with the continuous success of American acts such as Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys, Madonna and Mariah Carey, mostly Pop acts. Also New York-based Hip Hop started to develop during the late 90’s which helped the Americanization of the music business. Even though British girl band, the Spice Girls, found world wide success in the mid-90’s, British music didn’t grow as American did. Nowadays we can confirm that American music found its way to the globe, while British music found some success over Europe, Australia and Japan, but it’s nothing that we can compare with the American globalization.
The United States found their way to global recognition, while the United Kingdom found somewhat their way to European recognition, although it is not that effective. A pure example of this is Pop acts Kelly Clarkson and Leona Lewis. The first won the reality-TV music themed show American Idol and found mainstream and global success with her second album Breakaway (much thanks to the breakthrough single Since U Been Gone), the latter won the British equivalent to American Idol, The X-Factor but she is still unknown throughout Europe. This effect can also apply when the labels try to launch their artists on each country due to their previous success. The American find no trouble on guaranteeing a spot on the British music scene, while the opposite often ends in a flop, with most recent exclusion of Soul singer Amy Winehouse.
Still, this is no surprise, since we are all well aware of the American globalization, but it is somehow worthy to point out the differences between one music scene and the other. And if you ask me, I’m a Beatles person after all..."
