La deuxième - My royal wedding gift

on the day she was born 
she was ignored by the family's men 
when she was raised and taught 
she was adored by the court's noble men 


watch your head
a throne needs a son
make sure what you get
a girl won't find salvation in a king's bed 

she has temper behind her black eyes 
and wears her wardrobe in french fashion 
about charms and power she knows well
gossip hissing "king's under her spell" 
sweet Anne, don't give in 
you think you're above
but there's nothing to win
a woman should collect flowers 
and press them between the pages
of the hymns 
and not reach out for a scepter  
that will never be yours
watch your head
a throne needs a son
but the queen has none
a queen without a son
is as useless as a nun 




on the day her daughter was born
the king passed by
on the day she miscarried again
the king fell in love with another
and Cromwell seemed released
when he sent her away 


From the window at the Tower
she saw her father 
running away
he didn't even turn around 


This song is about Anne Boleyn, Henry the Eighth's second wife.
So, Princess Catherine...you can be glad that those times are long gone. But be careful. It does not need a Tower to take a queen's/ princess' life nowadays.

Esben and the Witch - Chorea

Finally, as promised : The lyrics !!! Enjoy..                                                                            http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_7608000/7608874.stm ( this is what it is about!!!)

At first the fingers start to twitch
The blood is set in commotion
The feet start to beat
Strange tattoos on the street
A warmth floods fast
(They grow wild)
The devil's dived
Inside their minds
Everyone's on fire

Like mad dogs they slather
Writhing and rabid
Feverishly twisting
A tragic display

Wrestling tremors
Imprisoned in prisms
Together in silence
They desperatly pray

Ferocious, voracious
Infectious, afflictions
Convulsions, contortions
Devour their victims

Heaven help me

A descent into savagery
Plummeting rapidly
They tried in vain
to shake this terrible hex

With reckless abandon
Belief was confounded
By spiralling, spluttering,
Quivering wrecks

Heaven help me

And we watched
Them dance
Themselves to death

Everyone's on fire

Heaven help me

The Kills - DNA


These are my three favorite songs from the new Kills album:
  1. DNA
  2. Future starts slow
  3. Baby says   



DNA

When it came to pass,
Loaded, pass me by
Fate, with a single blow,
Has clustered by me now
True, I had my chance,
True, true, true I had those wild charms for you
Oh, oh...
My fire burned them out
But we will not be moved by it [2x]
Your mind would never ache,
When you were young and sound
The way your heart aches now,
You feel you sent them onto ground
Love, love, love til you got enough,
Dance, dance, dance, if you got no love around you Love, love, love, til' you got enough,
Dance, dance, dance, til' there's noone left to hound you
We will not be moved by it [2x]
Oh, oh...
Love, love, love til you got enough,
Dance, dance, dance, if you got no love around you Love, love, love, til you got enough,
Dance, dance, dance, til' there's noone left to hound you
We, we will not be moved by it






Watch the video... it's gorgeous. Enjoy !

Agnes Obel - Riverside





Agnes Obel is a danish singer/ pianist who lives currently in Berlin. Riverside is her second single. Her album is called " Philharmonics " and she is on tour now.
Here you get a free download from this beautiful song:
http://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fagnesobelofficial%23!%2Fagnesobelofficial%3Fsk%3Dapp_7146470109&session_token=ZrO_0aOx3JGQvRgsRYkUpJGPtEZ8MTMwMzg5MjY1NEAxMzAzODA2MjU0


Riverside


Down by the river by the boats
Where everybody goes to be alone
Where you wont see any rising sun
Down to the river we will run

When by the water we drink to the dregs
Look at the stones on the river bed
I can tell from your eyes
You've never been by the Riverside

Down by the water the riverbed
Somebody calls you somebody says
swim with the current and float away
Down by the river everyday

Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep
And I don't know why I go the way
Down by the Riverside

When that old river runs pass your eyes
To wash off the dirt on the Riverside
Go to the water so very near
The river will be your eyes and ears

I walk to the borders on my own
To fall in the water just like a stone
Chilled to the marrow in them bones
Why do I go here all alone

Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep
And I don't know why I go the way
Down by the Riverside

This above is my favorite Agnes song, it's a John Cale cover "Close watch".

Recently Agnes won a prize, watch here:

Easter Egg: Crucify - Tori Amos




Every finger in the room is pointing at me
I wanna spit in their faces
Then I get affraid what that could bring
I got a bowling ball in my stomach
I got a desert in my mouth
Figures that my COURAGE would choose to sell out now.

I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I've been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Just what GOD needs
One more victim

Why do we crucify ourselves
Every day I crucify myself
Nothing I do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day I crucify myself
And my HEART is sick of being in chains

Got a kick for a dog beggin' for LOVE
I gotta have my suffering
So that I can have my cross
I know a cat named Easter
He says will you ever learn
You're just an empty cage girl if you kill the bird

I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I've been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Got enough GUILT to start
My own religion

Why do we crucify ourselves
Every day I crucify myself
Nothing I do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day I crucify myself
And my HEART is sick of being in chains

Please be
Save me
I CRY

Looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I've been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Where are those angels
When you need them

Why do we crucify ourselves
Every day I crucify myself
Nothing I do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day I crucify myself
And my HEART is sick of being in chains

Why do we
Crucify ourselves
Everyday

Never going back again
Crucify myself again
You know
Never going back again to
Crucify myself
Everyday

Paul Simon - So beautiful or so what/ New Album

Happy easter !!!
Paul Simon released a new album this month. You might know him as one part from Simon & Garfunkel. But even after that time Paul Simon had a very successful solo career. He is one of the best songwriters of our times. His lyrics are funny, thoughtful, poetic, political, critical. He tells profound stories, which is rare in songwriting. Just listen to "Boy in the bubble"or "50 ways to leave your lover ". And "You can call me Al" is one of the funniest videos ever ( watch above )

Here are the lyrics of the title track from Paul's new record. And the video of course ! ENJOY!!!

So beautiful or so what


I'm going to make a chicken gumbo
Toss some sausage in the pot
I’m going to flavor it with okra
Cayenne pepper to make it hot
You know life is what we make of it
So beautiful or so what
I’m going to tell my kids a bedtime story
A play without a plot
Will it have a happy ending?
Maybe yeah, maybe not
I tell them life is what you make of it
So beautiful or so what
So beautiful
So beautiful
So what
I’m just a raindrop in a bucket
A coin dropped in a slot
I am an empty house on Weed Street
Across the road from the vacant lot
You know life is what you make of it
So beautiful or so what
Ain’t it strange the way we’re ignorant
How we seek out bad advice
How we jigger it and figure it
Mistaking value for the price
And play a game with time and love
Like pair of rolling dice
So beautiful
So beautiful
So what
Four men on the balcony
Overlooking the parking lot
Pointing at a figure in the distance
Dr. King has just been shot
And the sirens long melody
Singing Savior Pass Me Not
Ain’t it strange the way we’re ignorant
How we seek out bad advice
How we jigger it and figure it
Mistaking value for the price
And play a game with time and love
Like a pair of rolling dice
So beautiful
So beautiful
So beautiful

Silent Hill 3/3

everything fades
grey and pale 
hanami of ashes  
no dawn no twilight 
stabbing blindfold 
towards nothing  
screams crescend within the streets 

a choir of lost creatures 
a march of death doomed till resurrection  
your sane mind denies the horror 
but you know this is happening 
you can feel that it's true 
it's the horror in you. 






a nightmare
when you lost your most precious 
you became a phantom of what you used to be 
tried so hard to get back what you've loved most 
and lost heart and life 
in the end 




the house you owned is so empty now 
it's haunted 
he hears your voice 
but you're not there 

you're gone 
to Silent Hill 
there's no way back. 


This is the final part of my trilogy " Hysteria / Ritual / Silent Hill ". 
 It's partly inspired by the ending of the movie "Silent Hill". It also belongs to the two other parts which deal with madness, obsessive behaviour and religious delusion. Finally the story has to end with the death of the protagonist, because it is the only solution to escape. But if one dies...how does one know he/she is dead ?

Portugal.The Man - My Mind

Hey guys, this is the second part of the southside feature.
Today: PORTUGAL.THE MAN from Yslaire
( http://herrenboutique.blogspot.com ).
Enjoy !!!

Portugal.the Man is an american band founded in 2004 in Alaska. "Portugal simply sounds nice",
that 's the declaration from the band members. They just added "the Man" to show all, that they are not named after a country. So with this appendix the Band name stands for a Person's name....for the alter ego of the band.
It is not easy to describe the style of the band. You can't put them in a box and place them in your library under P like Postcore. Portugal.the Man are more than this.

Emerged from the 2002 founded Post Hardcore Formation "Anatomy of a Ghost" the two Highschool friends John Gourley and Zachary Carothers started together with Wesley Hubbard,Nick Klein and Harvey Tumbleson the new project Portugal.the Man.
The band left Alaska and went to Portland with the intention of recording and touring. They recorded the first demos in summer of 2004 and followed  with a tour that fall. In spring 2005, Klein and Tumbleson left and soon after Jason Sechrist joined the band.
In january 2006 they released their debut record 'Waiter: "You Vultures!" '
On this album you will recognize the variety of this band. The style changes minute by minute. Surely you will find the primary hardcore influence, but the band knows how to handle this dusty leftover and mix it up with soul, progressive parts, emo, post and danceable electrorock. And at the end you have this typical Portugal.the Man style i love so much and which cannot be specified in one word.
Two years later they released their second album "Church mouth".  Till 2011 they have released 5 other records, all recommendable, but the song i want to write about is from their second album, which i love most.

Its called MY MIND.

Stepping steps of floating floats
that float above such shining notes
They know just where we should rest
Policed and waiting patiently we knew where
we'd gone and where we'd be
(Just where/why their feet are moving)
We know this should never drown the seeds

ahhhhh ohhhhh

My mind is all
My mind is all
My mind is all gone
My mind is all
My mind is all
My mind is all gone

Deaf and dumb but fluent speech speaking
speaks and listening while
eating piled tangled sugar weaves
(Just where/why their feet are moving)

ahhhhh ohhhhh

My mind is all
My mind is all
My mind is all gone
My mind is all
My mind is all
My mind is all gone

My mind is
As I feel my body moving and feel these feet a
moving
My mind is
As I feel my body moving and feel these feet a
moving

A messy mess of fruits and pies
that dance about these aging eyes
They know just what becomes of seeds
(Just where/why their feet are moving)
A busy suit or dirty boys feeling rude in lazy lies
Oh my my my my

ahhhhh ohhhhh

My mind is all
My mind is all
My mind is all
My mind is
As I feel my body moving and feel these feet a
moving

This song is about an acid trip. But not one of the bad ones. It seems like the singer and some friends of him walk through an amusement park or over a fair and they are astonished about their reactions. Normaly their mind control everything. The speech, the walk, the cognition. Now after taking acid, the mind seems to be gone, but it all still works.....in a really nice way.

I dont want to celebrate drugs, but i think it is really enjoyably to hear a song about drugs, which is not so depressive like most songs with this subject. There's no denying that many artists, singers or painters used drugs in a creative nature and not for self-destruction.

Kvertelak

Hey Guys....
as I told you I 'm starting the Southside feature. First Band is Kvertelak from Norway. My friend Jens wrote some infos about it, added a lots of links and the lyrics of the Song "Met". Maybe you know the Bands baroness, Converge or Turbonegro which are from the same background as Kvertelak. But don't expect the same music ! Kvertelak is a Hardcore Band and they sing norwegian !!!ONLY!!!

Kvelertak - Mjod (Met)
Stavanger, Norwegen. Kvelertak. Für mich der Geheimtipp des diesjährigen
Southside-Festivals 2011 schlechthin. Wer einen Vergleich zu ihren
Landsmännern Turbonegro versucht, wird schnell enttäuscht werden, denn sie
sind weit mehr dem Hardcore zugeneigt als dem Rock'n Roll, außerdem sind
ihre Texte ausschließlich in ihrer Heimatsprache, auf Norwegisch, verfasst.
Das Cover ihres aktuellen (Debüt-)Albums "Kvelertak", was soviel bedeutet
wie "im Würgegriff", wurde von niemand geringerem als dem Baroness-Frontmann
und Gitarristen John Baizley gestaltet, der auch die Alben seiner eigenen Combo entworfen
hat. Bekannt geworden sind sie durch den Support auf der Europatournee 2010
der amerikanischen Bands um Kylesa und Converge.
Mit letzterer werden sie u.a. eben auch auf Southside und Hurricane 2011
gemeinsam vertreten, deren Gitarrist Kurt Ballou auch Kveletaks Debüt auf "Indie Recordings" produzierte und für kurzfristig Entschlossene am 16. April in der Kölner Essigfabrik zu sehen sein. Die Zeitschrift "Visions" schrieb in ihrer Plattenrezension:

http://www.visions.de/platten/15858/kvelertak-kvelertak

 Mjød

http://www.vimeo.com/11736163

Nå ska me ta ein liten sang
Den dreie seg om alkohol
Me har ingen sånne tekstar
Me vil gjerna ha litt spekter

Suttung fulgte hakk i hel
Odin kicka assen hans
Suttung leve ei mer lenger
Me har all den mjød me treng
Full av all dis galskap

Ska fyra opp ein liten tjall
Setta på litt svartmetall
Sammen med min beste venn

Odin ga oss
Suttung sitt mjød
Det magiske mjød
Det daglige brød

Odin ga oss
Suttung sitt mjød
Det magiske mjød
Det e bedre enn øl

Nattens sønner at og lengter

Så ska me pula Odins enka
Mens me råe riff ska sjenka
Svarte rever dekk attens
Sjå Kvelertaks bestilens

Odin ga oss
Suttung sitt mjød
Det magiske mjød
Det daglige brød

Odin ga oss
Suttung sitt mjød
Det magiske mjød
Det e bedre enn øl

Odin ga oss
Suttung sitt mjød
Det magiske mjød
Det daglige br


An english translation of the song ( it's not perfect !!!)

Now we are going to sing a little song It is about Alkohol We do not have any songs about it We would like to have a larger specter ... ... Suttung was always right behind Odin kicked his ass Suttung does not live anylonger We have all the mjød we need Full with all kind of madness We would like to have a larger specter
Gonna light up a little joint Put on some black metal With My best freind Yeaaahh.... Odin gave us Susstungs mjød The magical mjøOur daily bread Odin gave us Suttungs mjød The magical mjød It is better than beer The sons of the night longs ... ... Now we are gonne fuck Odins widdow While we make some wild riffs Black foxes hold back lay still See Kvelertak brutalety

White Stripes - Effect and Cause ( U.S Congress Speech from Donna Edwards)



"Effect And Cause"

I guess you have to have a problem
If you want to invent a contraption
first you cause a train wreck
And then you put me in traction
well first came an action
And then a reaction
But you can't switch around
For your own satisfaction
Well you burnt my house down
Then got mad at my reaction

Well in every complicated situation
There's a human relation
Making sense of it all
Take a whole lot of concentration
Well you can blame the baby
For her pregnant ma
And if there's one of these unavoidable laws

It's just that you can't just take the effect and make it the cause

[Chorus:]
Well you can't take the effect
And make it the cause
I didn't rob a bank
because you made up the law
Blame me for robbing peter
Don't you blame Paul
Can't take the effect
And make it the cause

I ain't the reason that you gave me
No reason to return your call
You built a house of cards
And got shocked when you saw them fall
Well I ain't saying I'm innocent
In fact the reverse
But if your heading to the grave
you Don't blame the hearse
You're like a little girl yelling at her brother
Cause you lost his ball

You keep blaming me for what you did
And that ain't all
The way you clean up the wreck
Is enough to give one pause
You seem to forget just how this song started
I'm reacting to you
because you left me broken hearted

See you just can't just take the effect and make it the cause

[Chorus]  


Donna Edwards used this White Stripes Song to explain kids, seniors and others who were concerned if there should be a goverment shutdown.    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_shutdown )

C'mon kids who play in a band...it's important to write songs about what's going wrong today !!!

Thanx to Chantal who posted it and to her friend VV ;o)

Elbow - Grounds for Divorce / New album





Mondays is for drinking to the seldom seen kid

I've been working on a cocktail called Grounds for Divorce
Whoah
Polishing a compass that I hold in my sleep
Whoah
Doubt comes in on sticks but then he kicks like a horse
Whoah
There's a Chinese cigarette case
And the rest you can keep
And the rest you can keep
And the rest you can keep

There's a hole in my neighbourhood down which of late I cannot help but fall
There's a hole in my neighbourhood down which of late I cannot help but fall

Mondays is for drinking to the seldom seen kid
Oooo
Oooo

There's this whispering of jokers doing flesh by the pound
To a chorus of supposes from the little town hoods
There'll be twisted karaokee at the aniseed lounge
And I'll bring you further roses
But it does you no good
And it does me no good
And it does you no good

There's a hole in my neighbourhood down which of late I cannot help but fall
There's a hole in my neighbourhood down which of late I cannot help but fall
There's a hole in my neighbourhood down which of late I cannot help but fall

Someday we'll be drinking with the seldom seen kid
Oooo
Oooo

This might be Elbow's most famous song. It's about their friend Bryan Glancy (seldom seen kid) who died when they worked on this album called "The seldom seen Kid" .
 The "hole" in the Neighbourhood is a tiny bar in Manchester, where all the Elbow members come from and it could also be seen as a reference to the hole that their deceased friend left.
 Also this song deals with the problems of constant drinking and gambling which are the death to every marriage in the end.
But now Elbow released their new album "Build a rocket, boys ". The songs are quieter and there's not such a smash hit as Grounds of Divorce on it. I believe you need to hear it several times, it has to unravel and develop until you find the treasures. And it's worth to listen to their previous records. The singer Guy Garvey has an amazing voice which reminds me so much on Peter Gabriel at his best times. Garvey himself admitts that Gabriel was one of his major influences. And Gabriel covered "Mirrorball" ( one of my favorite Elbow songs) for his latest record "Scratch my back".
If you want to know more about Elbow, here's a link to their webpage:  http://www.elbow.co.uk/

Here are the lyrics from the new single "Open Arms"



You're a law unto yourself
And we don't suffer dreamers
But neither should you walk the earth alone

So with finger rolls and folding chairs
And a volley of streamers
We can be there for tweaks and repairs
Should you come back home

We got open arms for broken hearts
Like yours my boy, come home again

Tables are for pounding here
And when we've got you surrounded
The man you are will know the boy you were

And you're not the man who fell to earth
You're the man of La Mancha
And we've love enough to light the street
'Cause everybody's here

We got open arms for broken hearts
Like yours my boy, come home again
We got open arms for broken hearts
Like yours my boy, come home again

Everyone's here
Everyone's here
The moon is out looking for trouble
And everyone's here

Everyone's here
Everyone's here
The moon wants a scrap or a cuddle
And everyone's here

We got open arms for broken hearts
Like yours my boy, come home again
We got open arms for broken hearts
Like yours my boy, come home again

Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Come home again

The moon is out looking for trouble
The moon wants a scrap or a cuddle
The moon is face down in a puddle
And everyone's here  


I'm looking forward to see this great band this summer live on stage !!!

Woodkid - Wasteland

Hey you Woodkid - Addicts !!!




Here I've got another track from Woodkid's EP, which seems actually only available on I-Tunes right now :o(((
So...don't be sad...listen to another track here right now.
It seems, that music and lyrics that deal with war, fight, toil, fear and despair are in high favor these times....if you look at Esben and the witch or the new P.J. Harvey Album.
Maybe we need it, to cope with all this terrible news about Libya, Iran, Jemen, Afghanistan, Egypt, Ivory Coast and of course Japan...
Or are we too fascinated by war and turmoil ??? I hope not ! So enjoy this track and think about peacefull things....and if you want to know more or see Woodkid's amazing IRON Video, look at my previous post!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdoxk_PxvMI&NR=1

Here are the lyrics:


Most of my sweet memories were buried in the sand
The fire and the pain will now be coming to an end
How did you get to save me from this desolate wasteland
In your eyes I see the dawn of brighter days again.
With my tears you washed away the mud stuck on my hands
All the things you're trying to do make me a better man
Now I remember the joy and the taste of candy cane
The innocence of youth and the sound of major scales.
Most of what I used to be had vanished in the waves
The memories of the boy I've been were drowning and you saved them
Now I remember the joy and the meaning of the fate
The color of the truth and the sound of sunny days.
Most of my sweet memories were buried in the sand
The fire and the pain will now be coming to an end
How did you get to save me from this desolate wasteland
In your eyes I see the dawn of brighter days again.
( Thanx to Magistrix !!!)

There is also a post about Woodkid's song "Iron" and the lyrics and amazing video in my archive chamber. Follow me here or on Facebook if you want to have the latest Woodkid news and lyrics !!!
PS: If you like...I've got all tracks from the EP on my mini i-pod !!! Enjoy !!!

Woodkid - Iron


Hey Guys...
watch this amazing video, it gives you the chills all over !!! German Zeit Magazine postet it on FB and I just had to repost it here....

If you want to know who's the mastermind behind this brilliant epic masterpiece, look here: http://www.yoannlemoine.com/?page_id=18


here innocences burn in flames
A million mile from home, I’m walking ahead
I’m frozen to the bones, I am
A soldier on my own, I don’t know the way
I’m riding up the heights of shame
I’m waiting for the call, the hand on the chest
I’m ready for the fight, and fate
The sound of iron shocks is stuck in my head,
The thunder of the drums dictates
The rhythm of the falls, the number of deads
The rising of the horns, ahead
From the dawn of time to the end of days
I will have to run, away
I want to feel the pain and the bitter taste
Of the blood on my lips, again
This deadly burst of snow is burning my hands,
I’m frozen to the bones, I am
A million mile from home, I’m walking away
I can’t remind your eyes, your face





Here is another video, where you can see a live performance from Woodkid. For me it's clear, I've got to see this awesome guy live on stage !!!

Remembering Kurt


Today is Kurt Cobains Death anniversary. It's been 17 !!! years now, can you believe that ?
If you grew up during the famous Grunge Era like I did, this still means something to you. They did a lot for me, you and the music scene.



I chose some pictures of Kurt on which he doesn't look so angry or tired. I wanted to have photos where he looks handsome ( what he actually was !!!).

Here are the Lithium Lyrics



I'm so happy 'cause today
I've found my friends ...
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you ...
We've broken our mirrors (Alt: We broke our mirrors)
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care ...
And I'm not scared
Light my candles, in a daze
'Cause I've found god
Hey, hey hey [x6]

I'm so lonely, but that's okay, I shaved my head ...
And I'm not sad
And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard ...
But I'm not sure
I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there ...
But I don't care
I'm so horny, but that's okay ...
My will is good
Hey, hey hey [x6]

[x2]
I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack

I'm so happy 'cause today
I've found my friends ...
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you ...
We've broken our mirrors (Alt: We broke our mirrors)
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care ...
And I'm not scared
Light my candles in a daze ...
'Cause I've found god
Hey, hey hey [x6]

[x2]
I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack

The Kills - Satellite


Lost her behind the station
Lost her behind the moon
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator put me through
Ahuuuh, Satellite gave up the ghost too soon
Rising on the thermals
She calling in and out the blue
Ahuuuh, carried her off on a silver spoon
I loved her too long, don't take her too
Oooohhh ohhhhhhh
Oh how he crossed us on that fate your path in my own satellite
What a mess a little time makes to us when time and place collide
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator, operator, don't take her too.
I loved her too her long, don't love her too
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator, operator, don't take her too
I love her too her long, don't love her too, don't love her too
Oooohhh ohhhhhhh 



Hello....

before I post about Elbow, I have to post about this incredible band. I guess you all know about Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince ( Kate Moss future husband !!!). Now they released their new album " Blood Pressures ", after Alison had worked with Jack White ( White Stripes ) on two Dead Weather records.


So check out their latest video ( oh this chemistry between them...Jamie, what do want from Kate ???) and have a look at this fantastic Dead Weather Video and then read the brilliant critic of "Blood Pressures". My friend Jens wrote it for FastForward Magazine.
