And of course by that I mean the delightful Hafdis Huld. She’s made a video about the making of her new album: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keuNCe5Kes0&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0xcc2550&color2=0xe87a9f&border=1] She’s as adorable as ever – I must make my trip to Iceland soon, as I have been planning for a long time. I suppose it must be quite cheap there at… Continue reading Everyone’s favourite Icelandic popstar is back!
I have a new review up on Scandinavian music site It’s a Trap, and this time the subject is the recently released Melody Club album, Goodbye to Romance. Click here to read it!
Jesse McCartney – Body Language (Listen)How Do You Sleep is still my favourite of Jesse’s songs, but it was the first one I ever liked, and now I’m pleased to announce that he has managed to make a second good song! Jesse’s doing pretty well right now, having a hit with a remixed and rapped… Continue reading New Pop on the Block
Jessica Garlick is doing as her 2002 Eurovision entry demanded, and making a Come Back! I’m not sure if you can really have a comeback if you’ve only ever had one hit, but I suppose the specifics aren’t that important, since she is sadly not very likely to succeed. The song is nice, but there’s… Continue reading Eurovision-related news round-up!
Three interesting bits of news for you this morning: 1. Last night on American Idol, the mini music video the contestants made had a rather unexpected soundtrack: I’m Good, I’m Gone by Lykke Li! You can watch it here. Not quite up to Lykke’s version but any video containing the beautiful Kris Allen is quite… Continue reading Various Artists
As promised, I’ve uploaded some of my photos from the Eurovision Preview Party on Friday. To see the best ones I got of each of the performers, click here. I only took one video, but it was a moment that had to be captured: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea2FXdUESZ4&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0xcc2550&color2=0xe87a9f] Krassimir will certainly be remembered as one of 2009’s strangest… Continue reading Picture This
Kristinia DeBarge – Goodbye (Listen)On first listen, I decided this was just a lesser example of the current pop sound (like Rihanna singing a So What/Keeps Gettin’ Better hybrid), but then I found one particular part of the song stuck in my head. If you’ve heard the song, you’ll probably guess that it was the… Continue reading New Pop on the Block
Last night, I went to the Eurovision preview party at the Scala in London. I was unsure whether to go because the line-up didn’t seem that good, but in the end I decided I might as well, and I’m glad I did because it was great fun. Seeing some of this year’s acts, plus a… Continue reading This is my life, I don’t wanna change a thing
Recently I have been thinking more about producers and songwriters as I’m planning soon to do a feature on my favourites, and this new interest seems to be increasing my ability to spot who songs are written and produced by. Last weekend I reviewed Love Sux, the new single by Linda Teodosiu, a contestant from… Continue reading Can you forgive her for only going up?
What an exciting morning! I turned on Radio 1, as I actually very rarely do, and what song should be playing but… Show Me What I’m Looking For by Carolina Liar! This is one of the very best songs I heard last year, and their album is equally excellent. However, they appeared to have no… Continue reading I’m finding it hard to resist
