Goosebumps! Morgan James slam dunks another big song

Wow. Again. I remember being struck by this talented vocal artist Morgan James, and her wonderful self-awareness when I bought her album Hunter (we used do that, remember? Before streaming). I posted a nice video (which still works!) at this post: Wow. The talented and likeable Morgan James. The last line she speaks in the […]

Alec and Sierra ‘Animals’

I loved this couple when they won X-Factor USA. This is from their 2016 album ‘As Seen On TV’. Cool. Sadly for fans like me, they announced in September this year that they’ve decided to stop being a group, after ending their romantic relationship some time earlier. Too bad, but one has to respect their […]

New single from Kimbra

I like virtually everything this young artist delivers, as we have discussed. I could even see the (cough) good side of her ‘More than a bum’ soft sell video mockumentary ad for Wrangler jeans. Here’s her latest …

Nice insight into the woman who is ‘Christine and the Queens’

As I noted earlier, I’m impressed with this young French artist: pop musician and dancer Christine and the Queens (see: Tilted – Christine and The Queens). This short Channel 4 news interview is a delight … discussion ranging from who she honours in her stage name, snippets of her life story, deceitful use of Photoshop (one […]

Tilted – Christine and The Queens

Spotted on Graham Norton… Wow. Opening lyrics … I’ll die before Methusalah / So I’ll fight sleep with Ammonia And every morning with eyes all red / I’ll miss them for the tears they shed But I’m actually good / Can’t help it if we’re tilted …

Wow. The talented and likeable Morgan James

I’m really pleased to have stumbled across this performer, Morgan James. See if you enjoy watching her introduce herself in this feature below, as I did, so much … The last few lines (and the last line in particular) declare such self-awareness, it gave me goosebumps. Here she proves it’s true … Good on her. I’ve […]

Dedicated to no-one in particular …

‘Cool Kids’ by Echosmith — on Jimmy Fallon’s show (Update: that Jimmy Fallon link ‘expired’, so here’s a new ‘live’ version… albeit somewhat tightly produced & cut … I really did like the Fallon show live version) ‘Official’ music video here

Yellow Flicker Beat – live

This is impressive. One impressive ‘Australasian’. 🙂 Has Lorde got any imitators yet? Seems to me she is a hard act to ‘follow’. So distinctive. – P

O Mary!

U2 has been in the news lately … which reminded me of  Mary J Blige …

‘Scarecrow’ by Alex and Sierra

Boy, I’ve been looking forward to hearing what this heart-warming couple comes up with … Very nice. – P Acoustic version here, which I actually prefer.

Gerry Leonard guitarist

After watching that guitarist with Suzanne Vega in yesterday’s post about her new album, Tales From the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles, I got thinking, Gerry Leonard … Gerry Leonard … hmmm … and look: Aha! He’s David Bowie’s guitarist/collaborator on The Next Day, Bowie’s excellent album released in 2013 (discussed here and here: […]

New Suzanne Vega

I just got Suzanne Vega’s new album Tales From the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles (iTunes… it’s very good — my early favourite track: ‘I Never Wear White’) … it led me to visit her website where this video NPR Tiny Desk Concert from a few days ago features as news. I enjoyed it, […]

This is so cool

How cool. I bet any kids who dissed her at school are feeling dumb now …

Lorde – Royals – Later… with Jools Holland – BBC Two
