Shearwater - Animal Joy (2012) [Feb. 19th, 2012|05:45 pm]

Wild and raw, just how I take my Shearwater records. Still not quite Palo Santo (2006), but definitely a big improvement over that cough syrup soothing The Golden Archipelago of 2010. The whole record can be streamed here

I may not be the biggest fan of this band in general but every once in a while they really, really get to me. Several years ago it was Wolf Like Me, now it's this track.

Professional grade mood-lifter.
Jools Holland wouldn't have invited random people to his New Year's Eve.

Gustavo Cerati - Fuerza Natural (2009) [Oct. 22nd, 2010|10:29 pm]

This record is about half and half organic mix of psychedelic folk and catchy up beat enthusiasm about future. Listening to the up beat part feels a bit weird taking into account that the record was released less than a year before Cerati suffered a stroke that put him into a coma. Psychedelic folky half is especially great:

Men, do I hope this record won't remain Cerati's latest one forever.

Shakira, Mohegan Sun Arena, September 17th, 2010 [Sep. 18th, 2010|10:02 pm]

Feel free to envy as we've caught the official (tour preview show at Montreal's Bell Centre doesn't count) kick-off of Shakira’s The Sun Comes Out (Sale El Sol) World Tour at Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Connecticut yesterday.
I must admit my expectations for this show were significantly lowered by the weak She Wolf record and, man, was I put to shame! The only thing I didn’t love about the show were the hideous, hideous pants Shakira was wearing. “Hideous, hideous” because there were two different pairs of them. Equally hideous. That being said, everything else was pretty damn amazing. You didn’t like She Wolf as well? No problem, there were only two songs from it last night with the rest of the show rocking hard: two songs from the Love in the Time of Cholera OST and a mix of selected oldies but goldies and songs from the upcoming Sale el Sol record to be released on October 19th. That last one deserves a special mention. I think there is a really good chance it is going to be great. Simple as that. Why do I think so? Surprisingly, not because of already popular Waka Waka or Loca. There were three other songs from Sale el Sol performed yesterday that I really liked:
1. Sale el Sol - dedicated to Gustavo Cerati, frontman of an awesome, awesome Soda Stereo, who had a stroke earlier this year and currently remains in coma. Fuerza Maestro Cerati!!
2. Gordita - weird kinda hip-hop.  
3. Antes de las Seis - last, but not the least. Sorry about the quality, but I couldn't find anything better plus this one was actually filmed at Mohegan Sun Arena yesterday so it has certain sentimental value.



In conclusion, try to catch a show near you and join us in waiting for the new record, it may very well turn out to be worth it.

Goo Goo Dolls - Iris [Apr. 18th, 2010|04:01 pm]

What's up, my rockers? Long time no see.
A short weekly update:
1. Ever since Goo Goo Dolls performed at Clarkson I've got this poppy song stuck in my head which I didn't even know was theirs to begin with. By posting it here I hope to pass the curse to you. You are welcome.



2. I've defended my PhD thesis. A couple of pics can be found here.
That's about it. Take it easy.

Indochine - Union War [Mar. 4th, 2010|08:47 pm]

Courtney Taylor-Taylor, frontman of The Dandy Warhols, introduced this song in the band's blog yesterday in the following way: "...This track is so exactly what I love.  It just kills me." Nuff said.



This piece of unobtrusive and cheerful French indie comes from the 2009 Indochine record "La République des Meteors".
