Panic! At The Disco Album: Vices & Virtues VÖ: 25.03.2011

Panic! At The Disco: Album: Vices & Virtues

Panic! At The Disco

Album: Vices & Virtues
VÖ: 25.03.2011

Vices & Virtues ist ein Album, das ohne Anstrengung den Graben zwischen den energiereichen Pop-Hymnen ihres Debüts A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out und den psychedelischen Anleihen von Pretty. Odd. überbrückt, während gleichzeitig ein Fortschritt deutlich wird, der sich durch das gesamte Album zieht – von den Arrangements bis hin zur Instrumentierung. "Es war uns immer wichtig, nicht das zu kopieren, was wir schon gemacht haben", sagt Urie. "Die Songs auf Vices & Virtues sind stilistisch wahnsinnig facettenreich, was auf natürliche Weise passierte. Es gibt Stücke mit Jazz-Feeling, dann gibt es Rock-Songs mit Streichern und dann hyper-energetische Momente. Es gibt von allem etwas."

The Benefits

Single: Crash And Burn
VÖ: 13.05.2011

Die Geschichte von THE BENEFITS ist die Geschichte zweier grundverschiedener Persönlichkeiten, denen bewusst wurde, dass etwas Magisches geschieht, wenn sie zusammen Musik machen. Der dänische Musiker und Produzent Thomas Stengaard, 26, ist der Workaholic, der in Grönland aufgewachsene Lead-Sänger Ilang Lumholt, 27, der Träumer. Thomas ist spontan, Ilang arbeitet methodisch. Doch wenn sie ihre unterschiedlichen Talente vereinen, erschaffen sie einen frischen kommerziellen Sound, der dazu prädestiniert ist, Europa im Sturm zu erobern.
Ihren Durchbruch feierten die beiden 2008, als ihr zu Hause entstandenes Video zum Track „Physical“ über YouTube unerwartete Aufmerksamkeit in den USA erlangte: Quasi über Nacht wurde es zur kleinen Sensation, heimste hunderttausende Klicks ein und wurde schließlich in eine monatelange Vorschau in über 14.000 US-Kinos integriert.
Nach dem Release ihres Debütalbums „Seize The Day“ im Jahr 2009, großen Stadion-Gigs als Support für Rihanna, Whitney Houston und Kelly Clarkson sowie zahlreichen Solo-Konzerten in ganz Skandinavien, präsentieren die beiden Vollblutmusiker jetzt ihre neue, heiß erwartete Single „Crash And Burn“.
„Crash And Burn“ mit seiner eingängigen Melodie, der universellen Thematik und der fesselnden Gesangsperformance hat absolutes Hitpotenzial. Doch wer unter diese Oberfläche blickt, wird noch etwas anderes entdecken: eine emotionale Kühnheit, die die Band wahrhaftig lebendig werden lässt. „Der Song handelt davon, jemanden zu lieben, der mit dem Leben abgeschlossen hat. Auch wenn er viel Hoffnung enthält, gibt es darin auch jede Menge Dunkelheit“, erklärt Thomas. „Mit dem Stück wollten wir diese Finsternis und den Schmerz darstellen, dem letztendlich die Erlösung folgt.“ Ilang ergänzt: „Der Song regt auf jeden Fall zum Nachdenken an wird die Hörer hoffentlich stark berühren.“

Metronomy: Single: The Look (incl. Mixe & She Wants)

Metronomy

Single: The Look (incl. Mixe & She Wants)
VÖ: 15.04.2011

Die ersten zwei Single-Auskopplungen aus dem neuen METRONOMY Album The English Riviera kündigen Großes an: She Wants und The Look geben einen grandiosen Vorgeschmack auf METRONOMYs epische Reise in die Popmusik.
Jeder, der die gleiche digitale Melancholie wie auf dem allseits gefeierten Vorgänger-Album  Nights Out erwartet, wird jedoch geschockt sein – auf eine angenehme Art und Weise. The English Riviera, das dritte Album von METRONOMY (und ihr zweites auf Because Music) ist ein erstklassiges, schamloses Popalbum, ein prachtvoller Silberling voller träger Sonnenuntergangs-Funk-Songs, das METRONOMY auf ihrer Reise vermutlich noch weiter nach vorne treiben wird als bisher. Das köstliche Everything Goes My Way, dem Roxanne Clifford von Veronica Falls ihre Stimme leiht, ist ein zurückhaltender Sommer-Klassiker. Die Orgel-Hook der ersten Single The Look gräbt sich in deinen Kopf und verweigert danach die Wiederausreise. Ebenfalls nicht gerade unwichtig: Das neue Album ist noch tanzbarer als sein Vorgänger!

Das Set, bestehend aus CD und Bonus-DVD, präsentiert explosive Performances aus der Welt-Tournee 2009/2010 zum Grammy-prämierten Album „21st Century Breakdown“. Während der „21st Century Breakdown“-Tour zeichneten Green Day jede ihrer Shows auf.

The Baseballs

Single: Hello
VÖ: 13.05.2011

Die Veröffentlichung ihres Debütalbums STRIKE! im Mai 2009 entfachte eine europaweite Baseballs-Mania. Wochenlang stand die Band an der Spitze der europäischen Charts und erzielte Rekordverkäufe.
Am 15. April veröffentlichen die ECHO Preisträger 2010 (Bester Newcomer) weltweit ihr neues Album STRINGS 'N' STRIPES.
Mit HELLO präsentieren THE BASEBALLS jetzt die erste Singleauskoppelung!
Die Veröffentlichung von Strike! im Mai 2009 stellt das Leben der drei jungen Männer völlig auf den Kopf. Ihr Voc ‚n‘ Roll im Stil der 50er Jahre schlägt ein wie eine Bombe, in den folgenden 18 Monaten touren sie fast ununterbrochen durch Europa, spielen hunderte Konzerte, erhalten zahlreiche Ehrungen und verkaufen fast wie im Vorbeigehen knapp 1 Millionen Alben. Auslöser der Basballs-Mania war die erste Single Umbrella. Kapp zwei Jahre nach Veröffentlichung zählt das Video über 14 Millionen Klicks bei Youtube und ist für den Echo 2011 in der Kategorie Video National nominiert! Mit Hello, im Original vom französischen House DJ Martin Solveig, holen The Baseballs ab 08.04.2011 zum erneuten großen Wurf aus! Das Video zu Hello wurde im März sonnigen Californien gedreht & wird sicher ähnliche Begeisterung auslösen, wie der Umbrella-Clip!

a-ha | Ending On A High Note – das letzte Konzert

a-ha | Ending On A High Note – das letzte Konzert
a-ha, Ending On A High Note – das letzte Konzert


Die 25-jährige Karriere einer der einflussreichsten und prägnantesten Popbands dieses Planeten, endete am 4. Dezember 2010, als in Oslo das letzte Konzert von a-ha stattfand. Genau neun Monate zuvor, am 4. März 2009, startete die Abschieds-Tour der legendären skandinavischen Formation, mit dem Titel »Ending On A High Note« – das Gegenteil eines leisen Abgangs. Die Formation tourte durch Süd- und Nordamerika, durch Europa und Asien. Doch obwohl die Band so ihren Abschied in die Länder ihrer Fans trug, waren auf dem Abschiedskonzert in der Spektrum-Arena in der norwegischen Hauptstadt Fans aus England, Indien, Mexico, Südkorea, den USA, Spanien, Deutschland, Kanada und Italien – aus allen Orten kamen diejenigen, die von a-ha berührt wurden. Auch Temperaturen unter dem Gefrierpunkt konnten die Fans nicht abschrecken.
Das Trio Morten Harket, Pål Waaktaar-Savoy und Magne Furuholmen hat weltweit über 70 Millionen Tonträger verkauft, war 75 Mal auf Platz #1 der Charts vertreten und besitzt bis zum heutigen Tag eine unglaublich passionierte, internationale Fanbase.
Und um den Abschied dieser wahrhaftigen Kult-Band gebührend zu zelebrieren, erscheinen nun die letzten a-ha-Veröffentlichungen. Zum einen die passend betitelte »Ending On A High Note«-Live-CD und die zugehörige DVD, welche alle unsterblichen Hits und Klassiker enthält, die bei der ungemein emotionalen Abschiedsshow aufgenommen wurden. Für Sammler und Die Hard-Fans erscheint »Ending On A High Note« zudem auch als Deluxe-DVD-Box, die neben dem vollständigen Konzert nicht nur eine aufwändige Dokumentation rundum den finalen Gig enthält, sondern auch eine Doppel-CD, die die komplette Show nochmals akustisch Revue passieren lässt.
Glücklicherweise liefen die Kameras als a-ha sich zum Ende 2010 mit einer Verbeugung verabschiedeten, denn nicht alle schafften es nach Oslo, da es nur eine begrenzte Anzahl Eintrittskarten gab. Denn nachdem man den Dokumentarfilm über dieses ergreifende Konzert gesehen hat, realisiert man erst: a-ha haben aufgehört, aber die Musik wird weiterleben, und nicht nur die Musik.
Die Erinnerungen, die Atmosphäre und die Freude dieses letzten Konzertes werden immer weiterleben. Manche Bands verschwinden, andere Erinnerungen verblassen über die Zeit. Nicht so a-ha!
Wie Morten sagt, es gab einen Plan. a-ha hatte sich entschieden, es anders zu machen. Eine neunmonatige Abschiedstour, die sowohl a-ha als auch den Fans in aller Welt die Möglichkeit geben sollte, sich mit Würde zu verabschieden. Oslo war der letzte Abschied.
Als passender Vorbote zu diesem Abschiedsgeschenk, wurde der 2000er Comeback-Hit »Summer Moved On« ausgewählt, der bereits ab dem 25.03. als physische 2-Track-Single und natürlich auch als digitaler Download im Handel erhältlich sein wird.
a-ha »Ending On A High Note – The Final Concert« erscheint exklusiv bei WE LOVE MUSIC, dem gemeinsamen Label von Universal Music und Starwatch Entertainment, dem Musik- und Entertainmentlabel der ProSiebenSat.1 Group.

Steel Guitar News

Hello fellow players,

This week�s newsletter is a newsletter from a friend of mine, Diane Diekman.  Enjoy!

This periodic newsletter commemorates the lives of Faron Young and Marty Robbins. The University of Illinois Press published Live Fast, Love Hard: The Faron Young Story in 2007 and is now preparing Twentieth Century Drifter: The Life of Marty Robbins for publication in 2012. 
 
FARON YOUNG ON SAINT PATRICK'S DAY 1970
The night I met Faron Young, he and the Country Deputies came to Sioux Falls as part of the Hap Peebles monthly Opry package show.  I walked downtown from Augustana College, stayed for both shows, and collected autographs. When Faron learned I planned to walk the three miles back to my dorm, he insisted I get on his tour bus. Earl Stiltner pulled the bus as far as he could into the circular drive of Bergsaker Hall and shone the spotlight at the dark dorm. As I stepped off the bus, it felt as if everyone in the dorm must be watching. I still have the book of autographed photos.
 
RIP WILSON 1946-2011
William "Rip" Alvin Wilson Jr. died March 5 at his home in Nashville.  He was 65 years old. Rip played lead guitar with the Country Deputies in the late 1960s.  "I first saw Faron when I was a teenager," he told me in 2000, "He came to my hometown, which is Ashville, North Carolina. I was trying to learn how to play guitar, and Odell Martin played the style I was trying to learn, which is that Chet Atkins Merle Travis style." He and Odell became friends, and Odell recommended Rip to Faron years later, when Leon Sutton left the band. I lost touch with Rip several years after I interviewed him, and couldn't find him when we held the Deputy reunion in 2007. I heard nothing about him until I saw the notice of his death on the Steel Guitar Forum. His father and his son survive him.
 
BOBBY BRADDOCK IN THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME 
Congratulations to Bobby Braddock on his selection to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Marty Robbins, who recorded Bobby's first songs, would be so proud.
 
LETTERS 
Steve Wilkinson says, "Just finished reading your biography of Faron Young a really excellent book thank you. Seen him at Liverpool when Connie Smith was with. Then got to meet him when Hank Locklin was with him on his next tour great man sadly missed. Thanks again for a wonderful book permanently on my book shelf."
Jean Earle in the U.K. was thinking of Faron on his birthday: "Many thanks for your latest newsletter. Tomorrow is not a happy day......I shall play as many of Faron's tracks as I can fit into the day." 
 
Merlin Robin writes from Lafayette, Louisiana, "I want to tell you thank you for what you did for Faron Young's life story. In my opinion he was great and he knew it. I know for a fact his older brother worked at a carbon black plant in Bayou Salle Louisiana. I used to work the Bayou Salle switcher when I worked on the Railroad. I didn`t get to know his brother but acknowledged me whenever I saw him in the plant. It must have been a once in a lifetime feeling that you got to see Faron at his home. I just wished that he would have gotten help for his problem." 

John Hamilton in Portland, Oregon, says, "Thanks for publishing the photo of Faron Young as an infant. He was a handsome devil even at that tender age. There was no mistaking him lying there. It's easy to imagine him thinking: 'You ain't seen nothin' yet!'"
 
Peter Trenholm sends this request from Canada: "Do you have any video footage of the old B&W Marty Robbins TV shows from the 1960's? Or do you know of anyone who has any or do you know if anyone would like to trade some of the old Porter Wagoner-Wilburn Bros-Country Carnival with Del Reeves & Billy Walker, Pop Goes The Country with Ralph Emery, Country Time with Jim Ed Brown. I have a lot of these shows that I would trade DVD copies for The Marty Robbins TV shows. I would even purchase copies of the Marty TV shows if someone has them available." 
 
John Krebs writes, "Well, I know I'm a broken record but it would sure be nice to have a bio of Webb Pierce. It won't be long before all the players will be gone. Mel Tillis is still with us, and he has stories, some classic, though mostly about Webb ripping him off. I've also read stories of Webb being generous, funny, kind, helpful, and the complete opposite of Faron in that he was nicer drunk than sober. That one's from Mel. I've heard the Webb drank way too much, don't know if that's true or not.  Webb, to me is fascinating because there are so few anecdotes about him. NO ONE ELSE looked like him or sounded like him in any way. Faron could be compared to smooth singers like Jim Reeves, Marty, and others, a lot of the other stars from those years were very good but not really completely unique in the way Webb was. Webb is just out there alone. That's the main reason he couldn't adapt to the slide toward the Nashville Sound in the mid 60's. A Webb Pierce bio.........the goo
d, bad, and the ugly. Just like with Faron."
 
Jan R. says, "I would like to sign up for your newsletters on: Faron Young & Marty Robbins. I am looking forward to purchasing your book Live Fast, Love Hard the Faron Young Story."
 
Tom Lipscombe writes from Canada, "Thanks for your great Newsletter. I especially enjoyed the comments from the YouTube viewer named Samantha. It's those kind of messages which must make the author's hard work and dedication more worthwhile."

Alice Mackenzie says, "I love your newsletters and I am so looking forward to your book on Marty. I noticed in this email you had an email from a lady in Scotland any chance of you sending me her email address as I would love to write to her? Please tell her I am from Scotland but living in Boston."
 
And this from Robert MacMillan: "Thanks for your latest (Feb 2011) newsletter re Faron and Marty � always interesting.  Did you ever come across any photos of Marty and Elvis in your research? The February newsletter contains an e-mail from a fellow Scot, and I wonder if it would be possible for me to get in touch with her re swapping info on Marty�s recordings etc."
 
SIDEMAN SIDEBAR
Joe Wright played lead guitar for Marty Robbins as one of the original Teardrops in 1956. He was 18 years old. "We left after the Opry and drove straight to Riverside, California," Joe told me. "That was the first road show I did with him. It would have been after New Years. We stopped over in Phoenix so we could visit his family. Five of us in an old Chrysler. We had a trailer; it said 'Marty Robbins and the Teardrops' on it." A year later, Marty fired him for upstaging the boss, and Joe quit the road to be a Nashville musician and a talent manager. He still lives and works in Nashville.

Interview with Lucy Angel

Interview with Lucy Angel

CL: I’m Christian Lamitschka and today I present you one of the awesome girl bands here in Nashville, I believe they will not call themselves a girl-band, but it’s Lucy Angel.

LA: Hey!

CL: Hey girls. Would you please introduce yourselves to the country fans in Europe who might be hearing about you for the first time. Who of you would like to start.

LA: Hey guys, I’m Emily. Hi, I’m Lindsey. I’m Kate. Together we’re Lucy Angel. We are all related. Lindsey and I are sisters and this is our mom.

CL: I think it’s a hard job to tour with a mom, but with two of you (daughters) might be a harder job. So tell us about experience.

LA: (Kate) Do I have to step out? (laughingly)

CL: No you can be here, your welcome!

LA: You know we would be hanging out anyway as a group, even if we weren’t on the road performing. She’s truly my best friend. Lindsey and my mom really do get along and have a great time.

CL: Definitely, I know that girls need a little bit longer in the bathroom. I believe it’s a hard way when you’re touring. I believe it’s a hard way when you’re touring. Is there a lottery who can go first?

LA: No, we actually have it down, Mom goes first, then it’s sort of a toss-up between who goes next because if we’re gonna wash our hair that day, then that’s who goes. We alternate washing the hair days every other day. So always mom, and then either Lindsey or I. But here’s the main issue that we have is, there is not enough outlets near the mirrors in all the hotels. The first question when we are booking (at a hotel) is how many mirrors do you have and are there plugs by the mirrors. (Laughingly).

CL: Let’s come to the music you are playing. Could you give us a little idea about what kind of music you are playing?

LA: Yea, I would say it’s country with a groove. With our harmonies we have a lot peddle tone harmonies, kind of like Blue Grass harmony. Up against some rocking guitars. There’s some amazing just production and arrangements on the five song-EP (extended play) that we have. They are all different, not just one style.

CL: I know you have an album on the market, please tell us about the songs and what’s the title of the album?

LA: It’s self-titled.

CL: Well self-title, wooow. How many songs are on the CD?

LA: It’s EP that we have out right now and there are five song. We are going back into the studio and record a few more, to finish off the album. Then there will be a title on the album to the album on that one. We didn’t want to blow the title on the EP. When the full album comes out it’s to be a cool name on the title.

CL: Interestingly you are married. And you (Emily) are single.

LA: I am.

CL: Okay!! Private phone number please! (Laughing) No. I’m kidding. When fans like to get more information about you, do you have My Space, are you on a website?

LA:  www.lucyangel.com is our website. You can actually access our Facebook, Twitter, My Space. We have a U Tube Channel, which you should absolutely check out. We upload a new video each week, it’s called Lucy Angel on Safari. It’s just all sorts of adventures that a day in the life with Lucy Angel, yes.

CL: What is the best road story?

LA: That we can tell. For a couple of weeks we got pulled over three times by the police for speeding. Our road manager, the driver. You know you’re not from that town and sometimes there is a different speed limit and than it changes, so they catch you. Once police comes towards both sides of the car and they were like, ‘Mam, can you but both your hands on the steering wheel. I was looking for the registration in the glove box. And he says ‘can you put your hands on the dash board’. I asked if there was a problem and he asked. The officer asked for the passenger’s license; all of us asked why her, she is not driving. Then he asked for all our license. It ended telling him we were in a Band on radio tour and checked all our licenses and CDs, (laughing) and he didn’t give us a ticket.
Another time, actually our car broke down in Jackson, Tennessee. We ended up taking it to the Ford Dealer Ship and everyone was coming out of the woodwork because we were a band. We were signing CDs and then they asked if we would sing for them. Literally we sang at the service center and we were not charged.
