lady wtf.

November 10, 2009

can someone please a) tell me what the fuck she’s singing about, b) what the fuck this song is about and c) what the fuck drugs her parents did whilst she was in utero?

lady gaga.  bad romance:

that said, theres something intriquing about the woman and her “performance”.  i just can’t put my finger on it.  y.

that said pt 2, she makes kate bush (GOD) look normal.

that said pt 3, makes me long for moloko.  i certainly don’t mind gaga, but to me she’s just the “american” version of moloko.  without the originality:

holy new music batman.

October 3, 2009

so i had been texting back and forth with my buddy scott in iowa about this new chick singer; paloma faith, who’s video for her tune ‘new york city’ i fell in love with (check it out below)… anyway, he just sent me a mp3 disk with a serious tonnage of new music from some people i’ve never heard of (love that!).  the disk leans heavily towards modern soul/r&b – this is going to take me some time to devour.  and it’s right on the heels of my annual shopping spree at amoeba records in la (coming this tuesday)… so much music, so little time.

so i’m currently digging:

ladyhawke-productladyhawke – ladyhawke.  the few tunes i’ve heard of hers, i’ve loved.  somewhere between ladytron & goldfrapp?

covers-sotu-in-5-1

depeche mode – songs of the universe; demos.  this one oughta be interesting ’cause i gave up on dm years ago. anxious to check it out tho’

bryn-christopher-my-world-444957

christopher bryn – my world.  his voice blew me away on the first cut i listened to.

paloma faith – do you want the truth or something beautiful?  check her video out down below.

velvelettes

the velvelettes – the very best of.  a surprise.  i know nothing about these ladies, but how can you go wrong with motown?

Melody%28album%29

sharleen spiteri – melody.  ahh the voice behind ‘texas’  love love love hear.  i’ve heard good things about this disk from my friends across the pond.

daniel_merriweather-love_and_war_b1

daniel merriweather – love & war.  i fell in love with daniel’s voice on the mark ronson disk version (his cover of a smiths tune was one of the high points).

v.v. brown – travelling like the light.  ok, this chick is the bomb.  this album is outstanding.  funky & rockin’ & very very soulful.  i think i’m in love.  ‘shark in the water’ is the shit.  very very fuckin’ cool tune.

kylie auldist – just say.  this melbourne jazz singer has pipes like you wouldn’t believe.

mika – the boy who knew too much.  this may be the one miss on the whole collection for me.  i think i’m the only gay man in the world not in love with mika.  i enjoyed grace kelly from his last disk, so i’ll certainly give this a shot. might be fun right?

the disk also had a track by the capitol children’s choir doing lily allen’s chinese  you need to check that out too.  freaking amazing.

and the aforementioned paloma faith vid:

….you’ve crapped on me bigtime the past 2 months – therefore you owe me something.

and this is what i want:

click on me to go to amazon.co.uk and order me for kyle

click on me to go to amazon.co.uk and order me for kyle

from amazon.co.uk’s description: Siouxsie and the Banshees at the BBC is a stunning 84-track, all digitally-remastered, 4 disc hard-back book set of exclusive BBC sessions, live concert tracks and TV performances recorded between 1977–2001 split across 3CDs and a DVD. All tracks were hand picked by the band, including alternative versions of 18 classic hit singles, key session tracks from 1977-1987 and a concert recording from the Apollo Theatre in Oxford in 1985. The set also includes the complete John Peel sessions alongside sessions recorded for Kid Jensen, Richard Skinner and Janice Long. Disc 3 contains highlights from their BBC concert recordings at the Apollo Theatre in Oxford and the Royal Albert Hall in London in 1988, where the band performed a storming set 3 nights in a row to a sold out crowd. Highlights include a breathtaking “Last Beat of My Heart”, “Christine” and a rip roaring crowd pleasing end of show version of “Hong Kong Garden”. Disc 4, however, is the real gem; a 29 track DVD of the band’s BBC TV performances, features the complete Old Grey Whistle Test broadcasts from 1978, 1982 and 1985, the Something Elseperformances from 1979 and 1980, the Rock Goes to College broadcast from 1981 and the band’s complete Top of the Pops performances. A fantastic 30 page booklet contains extensive sleeve notes by Paul Morley, interviews with all the band members and a unique and insightful introduction written by Siouxsie.

like i said, you’ve shit on me – so you owe me.  make it happen universe!  thanks much.  kyle
