Posted in Music, Pop with tags , , on März 4, 2009 by memyselfnmaryjane

2004 in Sweden founded, this trio of musician covers metal songs in a way of chilly lounge music. You like Richard Cheese, you will love this. It´s their full-length debut from 2008, after touring through europe, performing at radio and tv shows, it was time to put out the first longplayer. They entered the swedish charts in the top 10, until then they´re touring through europe, with a big support of the metal scene. So if you ever wanted to hear AC/DC´s „Thunderstruck“ sung by a jazzy female voice, grab this one.

01. The Trooper (Iron Maiden)
02. Symphony Of Destruction (Megadeth)
03. Rock The Night (Europe)
04. Seasons In The Abyss (Slayer)

Outlines – Our Lives Are Too Short

Posted in Electro, HipHop, Music, Pop with tags , , , , , , on Februar 2, 2009 by memyselfnmaryjane

Outlines first full-length LP is called „Our Lives Are Too Short“. Released after a furious single, called „Just A Lil’Lovin“, they produced a year later this hardly to describe record. A mixture between Funk, Disco, HipHop and Pop.  If you know DJ Mehdi´s „Lucky Boy“(get this one here), you will find a Outlines remix on it. Now you have the DJ Mehdi remix here. But don´t think that this one has anything to do with the hard style of Ed Banger. It´s more a disco record then a rave record. Smooth produced with features from Wu-Tang Clan´s genious RZA. So take a look at it, you will like it.

01. Intro
02. Show Me feat. Beat Assailant
03. Our Lives Are Too Short
04. Now That I’m Free feat. RZA
05. Hold On
06. Listen To The Drums [Clignancourt Edit]
07. Back To 1984 (interlude)
08. Too Much To Ask feat. Abd al Malik
09. Just A Lil‘ Lovin‘
10. Waiting In Line feat. Beat Assailant
11. Matter Of Time
12. Bounce
13. How It Should Be Done
14. Outro
15. DJ Mehdi – Lucky Boy [Outlines Remix] ( Bonus Track)

John Krane – Doris Buzz And Friends

Posted in Music, Pop, Rock with tags , , , , , on Juli 4, 2008 by memyselfnmaryjane

I found this one and saw, that the artist want his record to be shared on the net. I liked his record, so I’ve decided to share it with you. I don’t know the guy, never heard of before. It’s a nice poppy record, mostly accompanied by a piano and a electric drum. Sometimes it sounds like Adam Green, sometimes it has a very britpop influence. Just listen to it and read his liner notes to the songs. And, do you also think, that the piano on the last track is playing the score of Golden Girls?

  1. Doris Buzz
  2. I Lost My Life
  3. Cal Ripken
  4. Shadow And Clementine
  5. The Political Campaign
  6. The Story Of The Japanese Bat Bomb
  7. Q: Who Will Be The One To Save The World?
  8. A: John Mayer
  9. When The Cubs LoseSarah
