This song is elegant, intimate, strong, comforting, personal, and enchanting. I only heard it for the first time on the local Las Vegas user selected music station, Jelli.com here http://www.jelli.com/kyli/.
Also, I found a remixed version of the song, or perhaps the full-length version of the song, in full house music style, with a different video on YouTube, entitled…
Goodwill Feat. Hook N Sling – Take You Higher (Original Mix) Magh Video Edit
From musically rich families and with high reaching hearts Rebecca Scheja and Fiona Fitzpatick have captured Sweden and also the international DJ scene. Rebecca and Fiona’s electronic is progressive and intricate. With an ambiance suitable for two innocent looking Swedish girls and an addictive pumping electro-synth bite, the duo have no problem rocking and charming the socks off the masses. Digg their Swedish dance moves! Check out their video “Turn it Down” above ft Kaskade (or he featured them, whichever), and also two variations of their recent track “Dance” below.
From the San Francisco California/ Hason Ohio based duo electronic music group Andain springs a fount of light-weight beautiful trance music that is perfect for the soft sound music lover. Their soft airy vocals and music box chimes paint dreamy love songs and emotive soundscapes. Many of their other tracks fall square into the dance trance genre with steady pulsing drum beats and long fade-in fade-out synth intros and pumping heartbeats with high-hat accompaniment. However, this song Promises, along with the rest of the songs on their soon to be released full debut album should prove more diverse than their previous works that they began with when they were first founded in 2001. The group has recollected and I’m looking forward to the rest of what their new album.
Andain’s new sound movement is familiar to fans of Imogen Heap, M83, Kate Havnevik and other creators of love inducing electronic music appropriate for any fantasy film, authors of deeply emotive and powerful music who tend to incorporate more classical instruments and more classical vocal elements.
Lourdes Hernández is the heart and soul of Russian Red. I heard this beautiful song of hers while watching the film Room in Rome. Her simple but touching acoustic love songs contain a genuine sweetness and innocence made unforgettable by her talented and ranged voice. Although from Spain Lourdes sings in English to allow wider reception and understanding of her music. Listen to more of her songs on the Russian Red’s MySpace page and learn more at the Eureka Records music page for Russian Red.
I just noticed Tania Zygar on a friend’s Facebook page and decided to investigate. I was very impressed. Part of the credit goes to “tyDi”, AKA – Tyson Illingworth, the #1 DJ in Australia who’s hit it big on Armin Van Buuren’s Armada record label. The combination of talent and experience with both of these young musical heavy-weights is all you need. It really doesn’t get any better than this. If you think it does, please share the love in the comments below or on the Song of the Day Facebook or Twitter page. We all love great music and there’s no reason to keep it all to yourself.
Brooke Fraser is already very popular and has hit #1 and #3 in music charts consistently in Australia and New Zealand. Now after signing with Sony she’s running around the world to share her new intimate soul sharing album Flags which was released in October 2010.
This song of hers continues to rise up from small beginnings into something great and powerful. It inspires, instills wonder in our minds, and stirs passion in our hearts. A love song asking, what makes me love you like I do? It must be something in the water she says, pointing to that deep mysterious and unexplainable feeling we have when we become deeply moved and impassioned by someone who has taken our heart. I can keep listening to this song again and again, and the music video artfully jumping from one life-style to another paints stories that we can relate to of love found and beauty that it brings.
The new wave group, Kids of 88, was formed in 2004. Group members Jordan Arts and Sam McCarthy, grew up listening to styles of music different from that of your average teenager. In time, they developed a new wave sound, by taking past ideas from pop music and putting a new twist on them. Their music can be described as a combination of “sleazy basslines”, “mind-numbingly catchy hooks” and “suggestive innuendos.” Their intertwining of quirky lyrics and musical elements, make them a force to be reckoned with in pop music. Based out of New Zealand, Kids of 88 built off their local success and soon began to spread throughout the United States. It was in the U.S. that Kids of 88 landed a remix for superstar Ke$ha’s single “Tik Tok.” Soon after, pop group Cobra Starship also requested Kids of 88 remix their song, “Hot Mess.”
This single “Just A Little Bit”, debuted at #13 on the New Zealand chart, when their album “Sugarpills” was released on August 16, 2010. In addition to their success with “Just A Little Bit”, Kids Of 88 were chosen to support Ke$ha on her December 2010 European tour which hit the following markets: Zurich, Paris, Brussels, Barcelona and Madrid. A Kids of 88 tour in the U.S. is also in the works for 2011.
I wasn’t sure if I should feature this song or their track Sugarpills but this one has just the right kind of provocative beat that gets my feet moving. I also am a fan of GoldFrapp and this song undulates with the titillating sex pump that’s in songs like Strict Machine and Train but with more punch and violence. Their music video doesn’t fail to convey the message either. Also check out Sugarpills with a Sinead O’Connor sample mixed in with good effect.
Also check out the official Kids of 88 website.
Here’s a band from Norway, Donkeyboy, with their song Ambitions off their one album Caught in a Life which released in 2009. The band is all male but they feature Linnea Dale who is one of the top performers from the Norwegian Idol and X-Factor shows akin to American Idol. She’s the first person who I’ve seen with that name besides my sister, and coincidentally they were born in the same year. Must have been a popular name that year.
For some reason fashion styles from the 80′s are being pushed by designers and stylists in Europe and the US. Although I have no idea why. But I speculate it’s because there’s a lot more clothing left over from the 80′s that’s still wearable than there is clothing from older eras, and stylists just love recycling things that are cheap and just laying around. But that’s just a wild guess.
Anyway, good song, the more you listen the more you’ll like it. There’s also another video for this song online, but I liked this one better. Here’s the other music video for Donkeyboy – Ambitions featuring Linnea Dale, enjoy.
Alex Winston’s a singer songwriter with plenty of high pitched fun pop rocks for your ears. I just found her on Pitchfork the other day and this song popped out to me right away. The lo-fi quality to the video doesn’t lend much credibility to the professionalism of her image but it does confirm the indie singer songwriter grassroots nature of her beginnings. I prefer not to watch the music video when listening to the song, maybe because all the editing and symbolic gestures in the video lead my imagination to a place where I get distracted from the music.
I recommend listening to her other two popular songs, Choice Notes and Sister Wife too. Her voice reminds me of the girl from the Cardigans while her songs could be in a Pippy longstockings soundtrack. Yet, despite the adolescent thoughts that her songs conjure up, there is a complexity and depth to them that demands respect. I missed writing a Song of the Day post yesterday. I’d love to get more suggestions. If you have any song suggestions for the Song of the Day blog, please email them to me, or post them in the comment section below, or Tweet them to my Twitter page or comment on the FB page.
UPDATE: YouTube took down the embedding of this song, but I recovered it on Vimeo. If you’re looking for songs like Locomotive by Alex Winston I recommend listening to her other two popular songs, Choice Notes and Sister Wife,but this blog has tons of music by other female vocalists and singer songwriters that you’ll love. So I just found the song Locomotive Alex Winston by google searching listen to Locomotive song by Alex Winston and clicking on all the links, but many of them were not playable. So I feel lucky that I found this playable version of the video that works. ENJOY!!!!
Seems like the Song of the Day is disgraced by two guys doing their best to waste $30K, but hey, it makes for good watching and is a fun song. Also, being that I live in Vegas, it seemed appropriate! You may have also seen another of their songs featuring the well known video of naked girls walking down a street in public in these guys’ home country of France called “Baby Baby“.
