i want the world with no consequences

“don’t push me so hard. i suffocate quick. don’t cage me in.”  titular track goes something like, “you’re calling me insatiable. should i settle for less, you’re good, but i want the best. i want you, along with the rest. i want the world with no consequences.” obviously, a collection of songs about wanting to spend all day in bed, reading books. when you walk away, you don’t hear me say, oh please, baby, don’t go. simple and clean.

The Script

The Script are Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power from Dublin, Ireland.

After reaching 15 in the charts with debut single We Cry, their 2nd single The Man Who Can’t Be Moved peaked at 2. Their debut album, The Script, was released on the 11th August, and went straight to number 1 on iTunes UK & Ireland. Their 3rd single Breakeven was released on the 10th of November 2008.

They sound a little like a mix of The Fray and the Notwist. I’m pretty sure this song is absolutely gorgeous.

Introducing Sierra Swan

Artist: Sierra Swan
Album: LadyLand (2006)
Genre: female vocalists, singer-songwriter, pop

Link to album: DOWNLOAD
Sample: “Sierra Swan – Don’t Say” @ youtube.com

The daughter of guitarist, Billy Swan, sultry-pop chanteuse Sierra Swan grew up with music in her soul. After her first major label duo Dollshead broke up, she spent her time creating new material for a solo record, collaborated with Chad Hugo of the Neptunes and also recorded some vocal tracks for the rock band Cold. But it was really only after she met singer-songwriter Linda Perry that she truly began to blossom.

Notes: Some songs she honestly reminds me of Fiona Apple, but on the bootleg version of Extraordinary Machine. But like…mixed with Garbage riffs. Er, I’m not sure. Don’t listen to me, just listen to her. Her lyrics could use some work, but other wise she’s fairly solid. Standout track for me is “Dr. LoveBoy.”

I’ve got some of her newer tracks if anyone is interested.

Tracklisting: amazon.com
Sample: myspace.com
Comments: Lily Holbrook’s sweetly provocative voice snags your soul from the first strains of “Welcome To the Slaughter.” Like a more sultry Tori Amos, with a touch of gruff vibrato ala Stevie Nicks, Lily is like a tortured angel trying to keep aloft. Her attempts create music that is stunningly beautiful and often brutally poignant with the lyrical content. The intensity she creates through mostly mellow music is mesmerizing. -Mark Waterbury, Music Morsels

I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful her music is…

Comments: Sheila Nicholls is a rare gem, the kind of songwriter who doesn’t come by very often. She can sing a ballad one moment, happy and relaxed, and vent her anger a few minutes later without second thought.
