Listening Posts: Autumn Preview

September has arrived shaking off the cobwebs of popular music after the quieter summer period. It promises to be as loaded of new and interesting releases as usual. The normal listening post destinations are this week fuming with preview streamings of some of the highest profile albums of the new season. This is our recap of the most interesting ones. Most of them are up for a limited time only, so if you got some time to spare just go, listen and enjoy.

Among all of them, is MySpace the site that has our most awaited record on offer: ‘Grinderman 2’, the second instalment of the Nick Cave & Bad Seeds spin-off project, in which the veteran musicians go and swim in drone, prog and psychedelic waters shaping up another excellent opus. MySpace this week also boasts streams of the new albums by Weezer, named after the character from the ‘Lost’ series ‘Hurley’ and a self-titled effort by Interpol.

However there are currently many other choices… Read the rest of this entry »

The Month In Streams: Ariel Pink’s Haunted Grafitti; Janelle Monáe; El Guincho…

Online streaming action continued in top shape during the past weeks, with another huge number of new releases being offered to listen in full through different sources. The most interesting among them all was probably the return of lo-fi legend Ariel Pink, with his recent formation Haunted Grafitti. Pink has joined the 4AD stable and his first work for the label – also the first recording on a proper studio -, ‘Before Today’, is being received as one potential candidate for album of the year and hasn’t lost any of the uniquely avant-garde touch of the band. To promote the release they have recording five tracks for one of their record label’s increasingly famous live sessions. Watch it in full here.

The other stunning release of the last few weeks that’s still available to listen –via MySpace- is Janelle Monáe’s first album ‘The ArchAndroid’. The singer continues with suites II and III of an opus that began with her debut mini-album ‘Metropoli’, in which she tells the future misadventures of android Cindy Merriweather. The record is a kaleidoscopic blend of styles in an extraordinary mix that shakes all conventions currently dragging R&B music down. Astonishing

NPR fist listening treats are offering us the fourth album by NY Electronic duo Ratatat,‘LP4’, which keeps on the post-Daft Punk vibe the pair has nurtured through their career without many surprises perhaps, but with another solid effort.
The online radio station is also previewing the new Blitzen Trapper album ‘Destroy The Void’; and the debut work by british Newcomers Villagers ‘Becoming A Jackal’

Long time ago collaborators Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek reunite again under their Reflection Eternal moniker and launch a brand new album, ‘Revolutions Per Minute’ packed with many high profile guests such as Estelle, adding her vocal charms to the first single. It can be streamed at Entertainment Weekly’s website.

Aussie sixties rock revisionists Tame Impala finally delivered their proper first album, ‘Innerspeaker’, which, though mostly well received in the blogosphere, has been generating quite an opinion division so far.

Two high profile Vampire-related soundtracks were also made available for everybody to listen. The Twilight Saga continues with ‘Eclipse‘, its third installment and his soundtrack once again focuses on the indie world with brand new tracks from Battles; Bat For Lashes; Florence + The Machine and, erm, Muse. It’s TV counterpart ‘True Blood’ also got a second volume of its soundtrack ready, featuring tracks by Beck, Jace Everett, Lucinda Williams and other southern rock infused greats.

El Guincho / Piratas de Sudamerica EP by Young Turks

And to end on a high note, El Guincho, the Spanish DJ who was l tastemaker’s sensation with his blend of world rhythms is back with a tribute to Latin America. His new EP ‘Piratas De Sudamerica’ is full of covers of the artist’s favourites across the Hispanic continent, including a duet with Mexican star Julieta Venegas in ‘Mientes’.

Music Poll Update: It’s Britney vs. The Veronicas, bitch!


THE VERONICAS-4ever
small-uk-flag.jpg
After the announcement of this year’s nominations a few weeks ago, everything led to believe this would be the year of Portishead, with two newcomers, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes gathering the awards left free by the Bristol trio. However, the recount so far does not confirm this initial trend.

After the jump, we give a quick look at those categories where competition is at its fiercest. Among them, the biggest surprise is the most recent one, “Guilty Pleasure”, where international fan clubs of Aussie sisters The Veronicas have movilized their members to vote; followers of Britney, also nominated, fought back , putting the star ahead on the race and leaving far behind initial favorites such as Alphabeat and Duffy. Interest for this category has been so high, that total voters nearly reach 700, doubling in number any of the others. There are still ten days to go before official awards and music poll’s results are announced. You can vote here. May the best one win!!

BRITNEY SPEARS-Circus

Tras el anuncio de las nominaciones semanas atrás, todo parecía indicar que este sería el año de Portishead; con dos nuevos valores, Bon Iver y Fleet Foxes acaparando los premios que el trío de Bristol dejaran libres, pero los resultados de las votaciones hasta la fecha no parecen confirmarlo.

Tras el salto, damos un repaso a aquellas categorías donde la competición se encuentra al rojo vivo. Entre ellas, la mayor sorpresa sin duda es la mas reciente, “Guilty Pleasure”, donde los clubs de fans internacionales de las australianas Verónicas han llamado al voto a sus miembros; los seguidores de Britney, también nominada, contraatacaron y van en cabeza, dejando muy atrás a los a priori favoritos Alphabeat y Duffy. Tal ha sido el interés por esta categoría que los votantes se aproximan ya a los 700, doblando en número a los de cualquier otra. Quedan aún diez días para que premios oficiales y resultados de la encuesta se revelen. Puedes votar aquí. Que gane el mejor.
