It’s astonishing to think it’s already been three years since chanteuse Little Boots made the beautiful weather with her electro pop song ‘New in Town’. Even now it’s just as current as it was three years ago. Anyhow, since then the releases of succeeding singles haven’t really done as great as many would have hoped but new single ‘Headphones’ might just hopefully do the trick and get Miss Bootsy back into the charts.
It’s poppy and catchy and in many ways reminds us back to the early days of Little Boots. We Like it!
the new single is the successor of ‘Every Night I Say A Little Prayer’. The video for the new single was directed by Bullion Collective and is out now via iTunes. A new album is expected later in the year.
Marina Diamandis, better known under her stage name Marina and the Diamonds is on a high. Not only has her recent single ”Primadonna” achieved its best result in the charts since the singer came to the surface of the pop industry , her new album ”Electra Heart” is also one of the most anticipated and successful albums of 2012 so far, with several international releases still ahead.
The Welsh singer revealed during the release that ”Power & Control” would be the successor of ”Primadonna” and released today the video for the track as ”Part 6: Power & Control”. The new track kicks of with a haunting intro before it bursts into a nicely moist mixture of synthesizers and beats wrapped up in a nice pop jacket. Quite culinary there for a minute.
Marina is also delivering one of the best lyrics of the year by singing ” You may be good looking but you’re not a piece of art” so go start facebooking or twittering that one ladies and gentlemen…
The video sees the singer in a classy out black dress, playing some tricks on a rather hunky model. Clearly it’s all about Power & Control, which makes the video rather cliche but take the video away you still end up with a cracker of a tune, which has all the ingredients to become one of the most played hits this summer and hopefully gets Marina finally to that number 1 spot.
”Power & Control” is released on July 9 as separate single, the album version can already be bought through the album ”Electra Heart” via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify.
Many artists will agree, album number two is the one that needs to impress the fan base and potential new fans, making it the most intensive album to produce in an artists career and have it live up to expectations, even for the 26 year old singer Paloma Faith. The singer released her new album ”Fall To Grace” on Monday May 28 as the successor of ”Do You Want The Truth or Something Beautiful” (2009). ”Excited and scared. It may mean I’ll have to change my whole life again if it doesn’t do that well” was Paloma Faith’s response to several questions about the expectations of the new album ”Fall To Grace”. Paloma shouldn’t worry. Currently on top of the midweek album charts, the singer is set to meet all the expectations with the new album.
If you thought, the 26 year old would be a one trick pony and continue to release material in the style of her first album, might have quickly changed his mind to a rather open attitude with the release of the album’s lead single ‘Picking Up the Pieces’ which not only showed a more mature Paloma Faith but only a fantastic story teller. It’s the story telling that is really vital here, as ”Fall From Grace” is really a compilation of 12 stories taken from Paloma’s life, wrapped up in a new stylish sound of the singer. Of the album, Faith stated “The new album has taken on a very cinematic mood. I am very excited to introduce my new sound into the world. Working with Nellee Hooper (Björk, Madonna) has been really inspirational.”Faith told Dom Gourlay of Contactmusic.com that Fall to Grace is a personal record about a period of her life. “Likewise, Hooper said that working with Faith reminded him of his work with Björk, saying “At lunch [Paloma Faith] sat and talked in such detail, as if every song was a short film, referencing everything from Chinese romantic cinema to Hip Hop.”
The cinematic feel to the album is very much noticeable judging its artwork reminding us you’re about to be treated in a lavish world of cinema and theater, accompanied by a stunning singer who’s distinctive vocals are instantly recognizable.
One of the highlights of the album is ”30 Minute Love Affair” which is also confirmed as the next single to come from the new album. Its style which is compared by many as a Annie Lennox meets Drive meets Cyndi Lauper synth pop number is a rather outstanding choice as the next single and a nice successor for the current single. The authenticity and strong selling points for ”Fall To Grace” are its outshining in its cinematic ballads. ”Just Be” is another of these cinematic ballads which is absolutely breathtaking and really shines because of its integrity and sincerity. The most theatrical song on the album? That’s most likely ‘Let Me Down Easy’ which has a really rawness to it. But is it all very dark cinematic? No not at all, ”Blood, Sweat and Tears” for example, is one of the outstanding tracks by its distinctive mixture of beats and synths and Paloma’s extraordinary voice. At times the comparison with Lana Del Rey is not far fetched, especially during tracks ”Let Me Down Easy” and ”Beauty Of The End”, but the comparison only last for a fraction, as this young lady is so recognizable.
In all honesty, Paloma has nothing to worry about in terms of her lifestyle. ”Fall To Grace” is a masterpiece and a great addition to the 2012 most anticipated, memorable and classiest albums released.
”Fall To Grace” is available now at every music retailer, including iTunes, Amazon. The album can also be streamed via Spotify.

The celebration year of Kylie Minogue’s K25 continue as the singer has released the new single ‘Time bomb’ today worldwide. The singer who’s celebrating her 25 years in the music industry, has released an astonishing 11 albums and numerous hit singles globally and promised her fans an unforgettable year with loads of surprises.
The new suprise, a new single, sees the pop princess deliver a brand new pop tune, which stays true to the singers identity but yet sounds refreshing. Perhaps queen of pop Madonna could learn some tricks of this lady in how to continue to reinvent yourself.
The video starts off with what looks as a wrap up for the new video, before Kylie takes on London, strutting her stuff in Soho, goes clubbin and looking absolutely hot on her very own motorbike. The Aussie singer looks absolutely stunning by the way in her jeans hotpants and leather jacket which has the shape of a red heart on it.
”Time Bomb” is another fantastic pop track of the pop princess, guaranteed to be a huge cracker on the dancefloor. There’s no way to go wrong with lyrics such as ”I wanna, wanna dance like it was the last dance of my life”.
The single is now available on iTunes and Amazon. The video for the new track can be seen underneath.
Only few weeks ago they premiered the acoustic video for single ‘My Chemical’ (which is totally brilliant , check it out!) and the guys keep spoiling us, as they’ve unveiled their latest single ‘Together We Are One’ this Thursday.
”Together Are One” is rockier than its predecessor and having listened back to the guys impressive back catalogue (Do we need to remind you that these guys are the only independent Danish band to have all their videos premiered on the MTV Networks??), the style of the new single is what defines them best. The lyrics are deep and meaningful and sincere, is another highlight making terminal unique and so special to us. Finally Thorsten’s crisp lead vocals, in combination with Rasmus and Henrik’s drum and guitar skills top it off beautifully. Hit in the making! One more question though for the guys. New album? When? Hint! Hint!
And guess what terminal keeps spoiling us, as new single ‘Together We Are One’ can be downloaded for free from terminal’s website here. Share it with friends, spread the word and follow the guys both on twitter and Facebook.
We know from experience that their music is incredible, so as an independent band it’s really important the guys get supported so they can continue composing great new music. if you the song below, please do support them and buy the track of 0.79p on Itunes.
