FM BelfastI really wanted to like this group, because they’re quite pretty and cool-looking, and they’re fron Iceland, one of the world’s acest countries. I wasn’t convinced by the first 2 songs on their MySpace, but those that followed were much more appealing, positioning FM Belfast as the Icelandic answer to The Knife. I particularly… Continue reading The Next Big Thing?
You may remember my obsession with a very little-known English/Icelandic male/female duo called The Honeymoon who supported Darren Hayes on tour and released an amazing album called Dialogue a few years ago. They disappeared and the Icelandic girl, Thorunn, was later spotted as a member of super-bores Fields. Now it’s the turn of the English… Continue reading Sort of exciting news!
Having realised that I have only bought one album in 2008 so far (Sara Berg for £3.99 in the Resident sale), I decided to take action and purchase the first album of the entire year which I’ve actually felt compelled to hear, on its day of release. That would be Departure by Taio Cruz, interestingly… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: Taio Cruz – Departure
involving Scandinavian popstars: Details of Robyn’s new album are being printed in The Sun, and Alphabeat recently appeared on Richard & Judy. It’s a funny old world!

I’ve watched Melody Club with only 4 other people, been to a Russian Winter Festival to see Dima Bilan, and now I’ve sat among Brighton’s poshest middle-aged music fans at a Kathryn Williams concert in order to… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: Marit Bergman Live
I mentioned in my last post that I wasn’t excited about much pop music at the moment, but there are a few things that I’m celebrating (mainly belatedly), so I feel I should share them with you… Danish jolly-popThis year so far has been the year of the Danes for me. Although none of them… Continue reading What’s the deal with this pop life?
I have to admit I haven’t really been keeping up with music very much lately, and the new stuff I have heard, with the exceptions of Private’s album and BWO’s new single, hasn’t been especially inspiring. However, I have been following the music TV shows as usual and along with Melodifestivalen, American Idol has been… Continue reading American Idol 2008: The Top 12

This is the final round before the second chance and the final, so it’s the last time we’ll hear new songs. Let’s hope there are some great ones, although maybe not too good as they’ll ruin BWO’s chances! Niklas Strömstedt – För många ord om kärlekI don’t know much about Niklas but he seems terribly… Continue reading Melodifestivalen Round 4
