The winner of that big music predictor, the BBC Sound of 2013 has finally been announced as the all-sister group Haim.
While it’s an interesting choice to win, personally I haven’t been much a fan of this band although I did suspect that they would top the poll going by the amount of buzz that’s been going around in the blogosphere.
Adele was announced as the singer for the new Bond movie, ‘Skyfall‘. Now the time’s come to hear the track, and it sounds ridiculously indulgent and epic. Probably will be one of the best Bond themes from recent years…
Covers are everywhere- specially for songs that are in the process of defining current pop. This is Work Drugs‘ cover of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’ and it’s turned a very bolshy and intense original into a breezy, sort of sad track. I like this a lot.
This has to be absolutely my favourite song of the month. Previously featured on here back in March this year, this is the new single from Maverick Sabre. It’s a boy version of Adele and Amy. This is TALENT.
We’ll find out on BBC2 in the UK from 10pm tonight with the highly annoying Lauren Laverne (or ’1995′ as I like to call her). If you do a Google Image search for the awards, PJ Harvey seems to be the most googled artist today, but it’s anyone’s game.
I remember the first time I heard Adele‘s Chasing Pavements and being driven to tears, even though I had no idea what chasing pavements stood for. Now I do. But it’s testament to this girl’s amazing talent. Buffetlibre are one mighty big set of remixers- check out this download of ‘Someone Like You’.
