Scarlett Rivers

Whilst out last night I saw a quite decent solo artist by the name of Jason Wakefield, otherwise known as Scarlett Rivers. I won’t be doing a review of the night but I just wanted to say that this guy was really good. Here is his MySpace:

As I said, he is a solo artist. He plays the piano like some kind of crazy guy (much like Matt Belamy really), anyway you should give him a listen.

Blog Quickies Update Website

Blog Design

I know the current colour scheme doesn’t fit the rest of the rawkstar site, I will change it to the ‘red’ scheme at some point! I’m really just posting this to see what 2 Quickies look like together :). Also, I’m tempted to not show the quickies on the rawkstar.net homepage (in the recent blog entries list), what do y’all think?

Quickie

As you may notice, I’ve changed the theme the rawkstar blog uses. Now it has these small entries called ‘quickies’ (wordpress people call them asides, I prefer calling them quickies). So, you may now see more random small comments from the team here!

Albums of the year?

I’d just like to highlight some of the releases I am mostly looking forward to in the coming weeks/months, in the hopes that you, dear reader, will tell me which you are excited about and so we can all relish in the exchange of information. Anyway, here it goes!

– Asobi Seksu: Citrus. New York band that sounds like a swirling dream of wonderfulness. Album out a the end of this month, I do believe.
– This et Al: Sabbatical. We’re quite fond of this lot over at rawkstar hq, and their next single and upcoming album should be immense.
– Bloc Party: whatever it is called. Are you excited? I am. Hopefully it’ll be less punk-funk, and blog posts assure me this is the case.
– Mean+Flower: Untitled. The return of Europe’s best unsigned poprock band?

Now, your turn!

All you’ll ever be is a dancer…

Is a song by This Et Al. Furthermore, I absolutely love it. From the jarring chords to the sensitive chorus bit, it’s all good. Ticking in at under 2 minutes “all you’ll ever be…” is terribly short, but my, those 96 seconds are purest gold.

Patrick Wolf album in 2006

My current love, as far as music is concerned, Patrick Wolf is releasing his third album this year. More details on the musical aspect of the album in the full-length interview i did with the lovely Mr. Wolf elsewhere on rawkstar.net.

Some more news have later emerged though. The album will be named “The Magic Position” (the mind boggles…) and will be released on Loog/Polydor. Which means, ladies and gentlemen, that the wolf is going big time.

Along with the prospects of a new Biffy Clyro and maybe an Arcade Fire album in 2006, I am very very excited.

Also worth a look are Norwegian band Syracus’ first EP, “Sleeping Thermostat”. www.syracus.no

Bosh!
