Ashley Jade is your werewolf, your vampire.

Ashley Jade is a singer/songwriter and actress from Manchester, England. She was previously a part of the pop music band, Soda Club. Since then, Ashley who has drawn comparison to Christina Aguilera, released her solo debut album, “Dreaming” in the U.S. and abroad in 2005 on Water Music Records.

HOWEVER. I am posting a demo that was on her myspace. Apparently she is a band called “Things Untold.”Her new sound I think is far superiour in to the old one, the song I’m posting, has an incredibly sick beat and is rather industrial, in the likes of Snake River Conspiracy, Porcelain & The Tramps and Jakalope.

Taken down by request of artist.

The Spill Canvas

The Spill Canvas, imo is an amazing band. I don’t know if this is just because I’ve listened to them for years, but I stand by their potential. Lyrically they surpass most bands with with catchy metaphors (“Oh the chemistry between us could destroy this place.”) A lot of these sort of bands that  I listened to during my teenage years I only pop out occassionally for nostalgia’s sake, but this is one band I just listen to because they’re just that good. I’m offering up a few albums:

Sunsets & Car Crashes

One Fell Swoop

Go For The Jugular

CHUNGKING! CHUNGKING is a Brighton born trip-hop band consisting of Sean Hennesey, Jessie Banks and James Stephenson. “Retro-synth-soul trio.” There’s influences here; or more accurately, a blending of era. There’s soul and psychedelic pop redolent at Goldfrapp’s recent work. Sometimes, vocalist Jessie Banks can remind us of the flighty Springfield (‘Please Don’t Talk’) then the sultry Martina Topley-Bird (‘World of a Thousand Suns’). There’s a blend of modern synths in ‘Voodoo’ amongst others, as well as the sweeping strings expected in soul.  SUM UP: They are basically amazing.

JOLIN TSAI. 蔡依林.

(Simplified: 蔡依林 Pinyin: Cài Yī Lín English: Jolin Tsai) She’s the  best selling female artist in Taiwan to date. She’s fabulously and surprisingly catchy and sometimes that’s all you really need. I don’t understand a word of Mandarin but sometimes you don’t need to. All you really need is a good beat. For those that were with me, you listened to this on my mp3 player in Cancun. And yes, you liked it. ;D chinese, c-pop, pop, taiwan, cpop

Kanye’s new album, 808’s And Heartbreaks review. Sort of.

Do I really need to introduce who Kanye West is? No. I don’t think I do. So I’m listening to the new album now, the mastered version and I have to say I’m all unimpressed/disappointed with it. I loved the demo versions. The combination of the 808’s and Kanye– simple. Impressive. Catchy. But the final, the retail just sounds overdone. Like he’s trying far too hard to fit into this new hipster reputation of his. Kanye. You are not Sufjan Stevens. I’m sorry. Put down the background choir music sheets and the strings. All you need is a voxbox. Some nice synthesizing sounds. I’ll admit I appreciate the album, and I’ll give Kanye props for being a musician and doing his job at that, but something doesn’t feel right.

I was all up for the “Yes, Kanye as a person seems to be a rather large douche and quite sexist, but this album, while very emo is extremely catchy with its electrogoodness,” but he went and redid the background on all the songs and it doesn’t feel the same. I’m not sure. Perhaps had I heard some of the songs for the first time mastered, I would have liked them better. But at this point I’m a little bit disappointed. I’ll probably keep listening to the demos.

As for the demos— I personally find the demo version of Robocop to be the best. It’s much more upbeat. So here it is, for you downloadable pleasure. As for the mastered copy, well I’m sure you all can find that floating around the internet somewhere.
