Song of the Day: Camilla by Candy Says

Yep.

That’s right.

They’re on my blog again. (more…)


Song of the Day: Dreamer by Elizaveta

I love her voice.

I’m finding it difficult to say anything more if I’m honest. There is just something about her voice, and that something is awesomeness. Usually when I find someone I listen to a few of their tracks, unless the first one is that amazing, and choose one for the blog. But this time I just wanted to hear more and more and more. (more…)


Song of the Day: Man in the Mirror by J2 (featuring Cameron the Public)

Now, I’m about to say something very controversial here…. I’ve never particularly liked Michael Jackson’s music.

Within Temptation at Wembley Arena

Song of the Day: Not Enough by Delain

I went to see Within Temptation at Wembley Arena on Saturday, completely forgetting to even find out who the support was. When I got there it turned out to be a band called Delain. Strangely I recognised the name but wasn’t entirely sure if I had listened to their music before. Upon listening to April Rain later on I think I had come across them before in my musical travels.

Anyway, this was the third time I had seen Within Temptation and I can’t remember the support for the first two times and hadn’t expected much this go around. Turns out it was third time lucky. (more…)


140 Character Interview with Lem and the White Fire

Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve had a 140 character interview on here! But it’s back and it’s with an awesome band. Lem and the White Fire have an excellent sound and make for an exciting listen. I was more than happy to take the opportunity to grab them for a quick interview over Twitter.

@musicment: Describe your music?

@lemwhitefire: L&TWH is described to exude originality and quirkiness. This is an organic project which hopes to deliver music to the people with honesty. (more…)
