Naomi Hates Humans

Monday, 25 October 2010

An artist that I had been hearing about for months now is the acoustic folk sounds of Naomi Hates Humans. Currently the band consists of a duo, Naomi, the singer/songwriter and her bass player Lewis. The sounds emerging from their melodic tracks are reminiscent of the 1960's New York folk scene. Their fans include those working at DrunkenWerewolf Magazine, as they have been praising Naomi Hates Humans for awhile now.

Listen and download their music off of their website and look out for more in the future.

Fever Fever at the 13th Note

Monday, 18 October 2010

Saturday night we went to Glasgow's 13th Note to see the brilliant Fever Fever. They are a new girl-fronted post-punk band from Norwich, England. Their songs are energetic, fun and reminded me of the first time I saw Vivian Girls, although Fever Fever are much, much better.

Now, check out their blog and buy their swag! I think you will definitely be hearing more from them very soon...

Happy 70th Birthday, John Lennon

This week marks what would have been John Lennon's 70th Birthday and it seems to be everywhere on the internet today - even Google is dressed up for the event:

To celebrate, Yoko Ono has encouraged artists to submit their Lennon tribute videos. One in particular is from L.A. duo Magic Wands. Their video is well, magical?

As Yoko says, "Think peace. Act peace. Spread peace and imagine peace".

Mini Review: Manic Street Preachers' at Glasgow's O2 Academy, 29th Sept 2010

Monday, 4 October 2010

The Manics gig was probably the most wild gig I've gone to for awhile. Of course, it was partly my fault for having to be right in the front, but the opener, "Sleepflower", turned the crowd into chaos (which was oddly fun, I admit).

For being the first gig on a long list of UK tour dates, I thought they were in top form. I can honestly say it was one of the best gigs I have ever been to!

Best bits include Nicky Wire introducing "Motown Junk" before "Hazelton Avenue" (he later apologized, blaming being sober for fucking everything up, ha), dedicating "You Love Us" to Richey Edwards, the crowd singing along to "You Stole the Sun from My Heart" and James complimenting us on our vocals(!) and James' debuting the acoustic version of "Stay Beautiful", which you can watch below:

Mini Review: Grinderman at Glasgow's Barrowland, 28th Sept 2010

Sunday, 3 October 2010

One word that sums up the Grinderman gig the other night: AMAZING.

The only negative thing I have to say is when I went home and listened to the Grinderman 2 album the following day, it didn't sound nearly as good as it used to, as the gig just took everything to a higher level. I have always thought that if you can sound better live than you do on record, it is a sign of a truly talented artist. Obviously, Nick Cave and co. are no exception.

My personal favourites were their new single "Heathen Child", "Evil!", "No Pussy Blues" and the last one of the evening, "Grinderman", which sounded incredible live.

If Grinderman comes to your town, I doubt you'll need much persausion to go, but I still highly recommend it. Tour dates and more available on their website.
