Patrick for Bachelor

"It's a very serious love album"

Patrick Wolf said about his latest album 'The Bachelor' on NME's camera while he was preparing himself for his performance at T in the Park festival.

The XX

The XX is a new UK band.
Their first album is going to be released on August 17th, but they already have their first single out 'Crystalised'

[Look like atmospheric Gossip]

Here is an acoustic version of it

Every Woman

ActionAid for women who live in poverty

The single 'I'm Every Woman' is a cover of the Chaka Khan classic, but with 6 artists as innovative, exciting and individual as Amanda Ghost, Michachu (Bjork's favourite new artist), Roisin Murphy, TheCockNBullKid, Alessi's Ark and Sinead O'Connor.

You can download the song for free HERE

Here is Roisin's interview, speaking about the project

The Phenomenal Handclap Band

I've finally found an American band I'm happy to vouch for. According to their MySpace, The Phenomenal Handclap Band is a tight-knit aggregation of musicians and artists from Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. At the center of it is Daniel Collás and Sean Marquand.

After working with a wide range of artists, from veteran soul acts to up-and-coming rock n' rollers, the duo set their sights on The Phenomenal Handclap Band, a collective comprised of various luminaries of the indie rock and underground soul scenes. The resulting self-titled debut (which boasts guest appearances by Aurelio Valle, Carol C, Jaleel Bunton, Bart Davenport, Jon Spencer, and Lady Tigra) is the harmonious culmination of numerous diverse musical backgrounds, as well as a testament to Collás’ and Marquand’s singular musical vision. They have crafted a sound that is equal parts anthemic, dancefloor-oriented and orchestral, borrowing elements from progressive rock, disco, electro, and psychedelia.

Their debut album has just hit the (virtual) shelves and I'll hopefully get a chance to see them live very soon, so I'll see for myself whether "their delirious sermonizing whips crowds into a charismatic frenzy" and "their live shows are more akin to a spiritual church revival than an actual rock show". Until then, enjoy "You'll Disappear".

Thecocknbullkid - I'm Not Sorry

There is no way to top her own words, so allow me to just copy & paste...

From Thecocknbullkid's myspace:

Thecocknbullkid is Anita Blay.

Thecocknbullkid is one word with no apostrophies, please.

Thecocknbullkid writes all her own songs and produces a number of them too.
She urges you not to be overly impressed with this.

Thecocknbullkid thinks the Sugababes were never the same when Mutya left.

Thecocknbullkid thinks you should stop aspiring to the OC. It's so much easier being yourself.

Thecocknbullkid has been writing and recording for 23 years and hopes you will like it.

I'm Not Sorry Released March 9th on Moshi Moshi.

Directed by Ollie Evans

Have you seen her video? Because it is AWESOME.
