Slow Club

Slow Club

  Have you ever heard giving up on love? No? Then you don't know what your missing bud... The song is from the Slow Club, which is a folk-rock duo from Sheffield England.
  They are not a brand new band, in fact, they were formed back in 2006 right after the break-up of another Sheffield band (that you may know) called "The Lonely Hearts". No its not that band from the USA, this one is from England but its normal that you've never heard about it, because it never got popular and there is barely no info about this band online.
  The band is made up of those two guys on the picture, Charles and Rebecca. Don't know if they are a couple but, who cares? Right girls?
  They released a Two 7" Singles in 2007, the "Slow Club" and the second one called "Me and You". Both of these singles were produced on Moshi Moshi club (cool name ah?) and a year after they release their first EP, "Let's Fall Back in Love" (know i think they are a couple...). Also, they made a song called "Christmas TV" that was released in December 2008.

  Their first album was recorded by Mike Timm at the Axis Studio in their hometown, called "Yeah So" on July 2009.
  The second album, Paradise, was release on 12 September 2011.

  Here are some songs from Slow Club, hope you enjoy it! See you next time!

And my favorite:

Foster the People

Foster the People

Formed in LA, California in 2009, Foster the People are an American Indie pop band that saw there first hit, Pumped Up Kids reach number one on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart, number 3 on the Rock Songs tally and number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Mark Foster (vocals, keyboards, piano, synthesizers, guitar, programming, percussion), Mark Pontius (drums and extra percussion), and Cubbie Fink (bass and backing vocals) formed the band while they were on their mid-twenties. Mark Pontius used to play drums and shoot/edit the music videos for the indie pop band 

The band's first name was Foster & the People, but people misheard it as "Foster the People". Eventually, he took to the nurturing image it evoked of "taking care" of the people, so the name stuck.

Based on the Wikipedia article.

Hi there readers, today i'm bringing you a brand new content that i'm going to try to introduce more often on my blog, i'm going to give you some kind of a review of the movies i see on the theater or at my place.

Yesterday i saw Contagion. I was waiting for this movie to be release for about 2 months and it wasn't has good has expected.
Firstly, the argument is pretty good and the way that they use it is, in my opinion, a way of showing people that we are very vulnerable to little events that can happen on the other side of the world.

The story shows the the 133 days of 4 people life during a epidemic that comes from Hong Kong.
This epidemic kills about 1% of the world population before it the vacine is discovered.
One of the for people is a guy that has a blog, just like me, and he wrights a lot of conspiracy theories on his blog, and a lot of them show up to be true.

The movie is very short on story, and some characters appear for no good reason. Sometimes you ask your self, "what hell is this story for?"... But oh well, its a good Blockbuster.

Optimus Alive'11

So tomato here, went to two awesome festivals this summer. Yes, i'm here to make you jelly :P
I've saw some fantastic concerts from some of my favorite bands, and i've discovered new bands that i've never heard before.

Today i'm only going to talk about my first festival this year.
Optimus Alive'11

So in this festival i only went to the two best days, and those were the Coldplay day, and Foo Fighters. In the first day (the day of Coldplay) i've discovered a new band, that i've never heard before, Grouplove. They were really cool, very interactive with the audience and the music was pretty cool for a band that only has one EP.
My favorite song was Itching on a Photograph:

Afterwards came Blondie. And this concert was perfect for my parents since they love Blondie and have all her records. I only knew the more famous songs. Anyway, i've enjoyed her concert, she was very cute with the audience and gave a great concert.
I remember this song from my childhood :P

And, at the end of the day, came COLDPLAY! The concert was ultra-colorfull and full of special effects.
Chris Martin was super interactive with all the audience. He even told some jokes!

And finally...

The Second day.
The Foo Fighters day.
To me, the Foo Fighters concert was the best concert i've saw this year. Even after going to SBSR, i can still tell you that Dave Grohl gave a f*cking awesome concert!

But before i talk about Foo Fighters, i still have to show you Iggy and the Stooges.

And here you go, Foo Fighters.

See you soon! Next time i'm going to talk about SBSR'11!

It's sad to say, but yes, they where a band. A band that was formed in Manchester in 1991. The band's first name was "The Rain" and it was formed by Liam Gallagher, Paul Bonehead, Paul Guisgy and Tony McCarroll who were soon joined Liam's older brother Noel Gallagher.

They signed to an Independent record label (Creation Records) and in 1994 they released their record-setting debut album Definitely Maybe. The next year the band recorded Morning Glory with their new drummer, Alan White.

The Gallagher brothers featured regularly in the tabloid newspapers for their sibling disputes and wild style of life.

In 1997 the Oasis released their third album, Be Here Now, and although it became the fastest-selling album in UK chart history, the album's popularity tapered off quickly. The band lost some of their original members, Paul Bonehead and Paul Guisgy who were replaced by Gem Archer and Andy Bell. This two new members came right on time to support the band on the Giants Tour.

By 2005 the band found, once again, success and popularity with Don't Believe the Truth.

Sadly, in August 2009, Noel Gallagher announced his departure from the band after a backstage altercation with Liam before a festival appearance. All the remaining band members led by Liam Gallagher decided to continue working together under the name of Beady Eye.

Once again, i leave you two of my favorite songs from Oasis! See you soon! :)

The Strokes

The Strokes

Jullian Casablancas, Nick Valensi (the guitarrist) and Fab Moretti (the drummer) went together to the same school, and they started to play there, in Dwight School in Manhattan. Nicolai Fraiture had been friends with Casablancas and was attending the Lyncée Français de New York.

When he was only 13, Casablancas was sent to a boarding school in Switzerland, Le Rosey, to improve his academic performance. In Switzerland, Casablancas met the future guitarist of the strokes, Albert Hammond.

Later on, when Hammond came to New York, to attend NYU's Tisch School of Arts, he shared the apartment with Casablancas.

Their first performance was at Luna Lounge, on Lower East Side of New York, and at Manhattan's popular Mercury Lounge. Ryan Gentles, the Mercury Lounge's booker, quit his job to become the band's manager.

The band began rehearsing with a 14 song set which included: "Last Night", "The Modern Age", "This Life" (an early version of "Trying Your Luck"), "New York City Cops", "Soma" and "Someday".

Their first demo was sent to the newly reformed Rough Trade Records that sparked interest in the UK, leading to their first release the website of the UK magazine NME, that gave away a free mp3 download of "Last Night", a week prior to the physical release of "The Modern Age EP".
The EP sparked a bidding war among record labels, the largest for a rock and roll band in years!

So i leave you today with their brand new song, the "Under Cover of Darkness"!
Hope you enjoyed! :D Cheers!

Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire

In 2001, Win Butler and Josh Deu, began performing small shows at lots and at art galleries in Boston, before moving to Montreal.

One of their earliest shows, were at a Christian music festival, Inside Out Soul Festival, and later at the Battle of the Bands, and some other shows at the Concordia University.

At that moment the band was consisted by Wine Butler, his future wife, Régine Chassangne, Josh Deu, Myles Broscoe, Dane Mills and Brendan Reed.

This initial band structure began to dissolve in the summer of 2002, when the band travelled to Buttler's family ranch in Maine, to record their sefl-title EP. Tension Buttler and Broscoe led the latter to exit the band followinf the recording session. So Richard Reed Parry, who had been helping with the band record, began to collaborate with them during the sessions and would go on to join the band shortly afterwards.

In 2003, the band celebrated the release of its EP, with a show at Montreal's Casa del Popolo. But this concerted ended in the middle of the encore, with an fight between Butler and Redd, who quit the ban on-stage. To save the concert, Win's brother, William Butler and Tim Kingsbury replaced Reed and Mills, and so that the band could continue the show.

Before the end of their first year together, the band got a record contract with the independent record label, Merge Records, and became what we know now.

So, i leave you today with anoter two songs from this fantastic band.

And last but not least, you should see this:

Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys

The year was 2002, and the place was High Green, suburbs of Sheffield. A small band that started working with the Yellow Arch Studios played their first gig at The Grapes.

This song was played at their first gig in 2003, the name of the song is "Ravey Ravey Rave" and is one of the songs never released by them.

By the end of their gigs, cd's were given away to the public, with 17 songs. The cd is now knowed as the Beneath the Boardwalk.
More demos were made, and also given away for free. The group did not mind this way of distribution as they say "we never made those demos to make money or anything. We were giving them away free anyway – that was a better way for people to hear them. And it made the gigs better, because people knew the words and came and sang along", admitting saying that they did not even know how to get their songs onto the Internet.

Their debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, released in early 2006, became the fastest-selling debut album in British music history, surpassing Oasis' Definitely Maybe and remains the fastest-selling debut album for a band in the UK.

The band's fourth album Suck It and See will be released on 6 June 2011.

I leave you with the last two singles from Arctic Monkeys, see you next time :)
