Where the heck has she gone? Kelis has some of the best in your face tracks out on the commercial market. However I reckon she leans more towards the indie kids. Just recently her label release a greatest hit CD, but its still the beginning. According to Wikipedia she is in the process of working on her 5th LP, an indie/dance themed effort yet untitled with Cee-Lo Green & Calvin Harris. This year Australian Big Brother has used one of her tracks for its promotion, I don't think so! It's a perfect number off her last LP, Kelis Was Here, with a rock attitude and a FCK U theme. I would call it one of those songs that can get stuck in your head for a very long time...

In other news I have had this Kelis RMX of Milkshake on my hard drive for some time now (about a year maybe) so I thought it might be the right time for the world to hear it. It's a short edit as I never really finished it off, but i hope you all like.

For More news on Keils head to


After seeing miss Uffie at the start of the year I kinda grew more on an interest in the Ed Banger singer. Many are divided as to whether she deserves all the credit she is given. I think yes. I mean despite the rumours she is talented, and makes a crowd standup. SebastiAn even chopped her up to make a killer RMX of Pop The Glock, which is hardly recognisable as always. Now with the release of Robot Oeuf, we are sent into the future sounds of POP music, a hard bass, and slapping drums back by a cute cut up vocalist.

Mondayitis Cure:
Sample Flavours

It's countdown time till Alanis Morissette is set to release her 7th LP, Flavours of Entanglement internationally on the 2nd of June. This time Ms. Morissette has hooked up with one of my favourite and most influential music producers Guy Sigsworth who worked with Imogen Heap when they teamed up to make Frou Frou. Now I haven't heard the album in full yet as most traces of it have been removed from the leaking internet pages by obviously the masterminds at her record label that hunt down leaks. However a few songs are floating around & I'm quite surprised by the direction she has taken, with elektro synths, heavy percussion beats & deep guitar/piano driven melodies. It's a new flavour, and im loving it. But could this mean that new Alanis fans may merge and older ones diminished as she moves into indie territories? My standouts so far are of course Underneath (which is standard Alanis) & Moratorium (which pushes the AM movement into new highest). So when June 2nd comes I will be rushing to get this new album of excitement, let's hope the world embraces this new Flavour with open arms.

TVP: ThomasVonParty

Some like it mellow, some like it hard, I like it Von Party. Thomas Von Party to be precise, the younger bro of Tiga who can spin out a flipping great set. Your ears are in for a treat with the Edit he does of the D.I.M. remix of Disco Sirens by Midfield General. It's Turbo Recordings at their best, very dirty indeed. TVP also has podcasts over at Sid Loves Turbo, so go check them out.

Solange has Decided

How can I describe the talented Solange? Ms. Knowles is a sexy, voice with so much energy that you just can't ignore. At just 21 she has written pop songs and collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, releasing her 1st LP back in 03. Now 08 Solange is releasing album 2 on August 26 titled Sol-Angel And The Hadley St. Dreams with a different flavour of soul and jazz, think Amy Winehouse with a higher pitch and not on crack.

The 1st single off SATHSD is a Pharrell Williams penned/produced track called I Decided, also remixed by Freemasons, this track could of easily been released back in Bandstand time. This is not the last we will hear about Check it out.

Save Music From Extinction

Imagine a world without Music.... now read on how this could happen... This post is simply here to remind you that if you don't support the talented musicians and artists that bring you the music to your ears, then you will most likely not have it to listen to in the near future (refer to the video on Music In Tune). Most artists these days barely scrap in the dollars to survive. Their not in it for the money, their there to give you the songs you all so love and enjoy. SO much time is spent making a track, which is why it's really important that you consider this when you download a track and don't bother to buy the CD/Legally download it later. As an Australian our music industry is a lot smaller, so I urge you all to support the Aussies so they can keep making the music.

Thanks for your support. & Save Music From Extinction.


AM: Amy Meredith

I love finding a Aussie band who sound better than most others on offer, and that's just what we have here with Amy Meredith. AM sound like they are from the UK indie scene, and are dressed/styled to impress. But guess what they aren't!!! THEY ARE ALL AUSTRALIAN!!! & i Love them to bits. Take This War for example, it a soundscape that takes you away possibly to a concert scene with you standing right at the front trying to touch the band. Well thats what i felt anyway. LOL. Black Eyes channels a circa 2003 post The Killers sound, but with a better attitude of course. This band has much to offer and I'm looking forward to a LP soon, and when it hits La MB will be right on its tail. Until then enjoy their MP3 give away of This War or if your in Australia head to one of their shows. I know I want to on the 3rd of June.

Sunday Arvo Shuffle:
Do you want to read this?

That's what the lady in the sit across from myself attacked upon me as I listened to Crystal Castles, Xxzxcuzx Me. I can't believe she thought my music was too loud. Well maybe it was a little. Anyway I took one of my earphones out and replied, "Nah, that's okay." then quickly shot back, "If you wanted me to turn it down then you could of just asked." Clearly the lady just wanted to make a scene and doesn't appreciate CC or any great music for that matter. So here is my itunes on shuffle for 5 track which i plan to play real LOUD next time so she can her it.

*PLEASE NOTE* it wasnt a mature lady who complained about my music. I love the older generation. So the pic isn't trying to advertise this. its merely just for shits and giggles.

We Just Struck a GOLDmine!

Most of you by now would have heard of the talented Santogold from Brooklyn, NY with a voice like M.I.A. mixed with Aretha Franklin this is one chick who is set to be a household name. Now with a LP under her belt Santogold, (or Santi White as she is formally called) is set to take over the world with lead single L.E.S. Artistes which I have spoken about previously on my podcast. This album is on fire covering all kinds of the music spectrum, such as indie rock, new wave, electro beats and funked out tracks that make me want to jive. There are too many standout tracks on this one so I'll let you be the judge. But I will leave you with my favourite track at the moment, which is track 2, You'll Find A Way. This is one goldmine to tell your friends about, so get on board the wagon now!!

P.S. Head to RCRD LBL to get the exclusive track Your Voice not featured on her LP.

One Shoe Fits All

A guilty pleasure of mine at the moment is The Shoes, a French band cooking up a storm of hard hitting Electro/Indie/Rock & POP (according to them). My standout track is America. The guys also remix a dozen & more other artists and are doin a freaking awesome job at it. So check em out and get into these shoes, cause you may never want to take them off.
