Music Video: Hayley Warner: Hands Off


The sophomore music video of Australian Idol's biggest performer has been officialy released now! "Hands Off", was released today, July 30 on the iTunes store, though I couldn't find the link. This song is breathtaking, all I can say is WOW. Yes, it's a bit clichéd, all that rocker vibe, but her voice and performance skills are so terrific! Those shouts in between verses are unbelievable, is that Hayley or an amazing rock godess? She could be the biggest revelation of Australian Idol, and maybe the last, as the show is not coming back this year and I don't see very good sings it will on 2011. But wait!! Australia's talented still have a chance on the australian version of the X Factor which is returning this year!!

Catching Up With: Sharon Little: New Album, Paper Doll

 

 Sharon Little was one glad surprise to me. I was enjoying a CSI NY episode when suddenly one hell of a singer popped up on my screen towards the end of the show. Her talent blew me away and I rushed quickly to my computer to search who was that godess. After a while, the name Sharon Little appeared, and I immediately bought her debut album, "Perfect Time for a Breakdown". Now there are some good news for we fans!!! A sophomore album will be released in early 2011, with two tracks of it released on fall 2010! The album title is "Paper Doll". Citing her site, the album is Sharon’s "manifesto that she be judged on what she offers through her music, and not by the outfits she wears or who she’s been dating". An excellent concept if you ask me. A live version of "Paper Doll" was made available for free on her site. Her vocals are so good on this one! Her voice feels more mature, deeper. Of course, it's perfectly written also!

Listen "Paper Doll" and download it on her site after the JUMP ...

Music Video: Lissie: Cuckoo

 

"Cuckoo" is the third upcoming single set for release on August 30 of folk singer Lissie. An EP with it will be released, which features three songs, "Cuckoo", the brilliant cover of "Bad Romance" and new track "It's Not Me". The video premiered yesterday on YouTube and features a little Lissie, as well as herself, and they are really similar, the girl looks like her little sister. I wasn't really expecting this video at all, or this song being a single, but now it's here, and I love it! The part were they sing and play guitar together is brilliant, as all Lissie does! They look so cute! Though I don't get it why she was taken by the cops at the end, what had she done?

Catching Up With: Ex Miss Frank, Dropping Member and Name!

 

You might be wondering why there are question marks where the name should be, that's because they don't have a name, yet! X Factor 2009 top 10 finalists, then Miss Frank, have now dumped one of their members and scrapped their name. The group are now Graziella, Shar and new member Cherelle, who has taken Shaniece spot. She made it to Bootcamp too back in 2009, where she met the girls.  About their name, they are calling fans to select a name for them, a good move! I wonder why Shaniece left, they seemed so good together and they had already been in studio for a while, releasing "Caught Up" some time ago. Saying that, I must admit that I love their new look, it seems a really smooth indie/RnB vibe, similar to VV Brown's one. 

You can  give ideas for their new name HERE.

Music Video: Christina Aguilera: You Lost Me



"You Lost Me" is Christina's second single from her fourth album, Bionic, released on June 4. The song was released on June 29, 2010. It was written by Aguilera, Sia Furler and Samuel Dixon. This music video premiered on July 22, 2010. It is a very simple video, but full of feelings and emotions. This, along with "Beautiful", is the best song of Christina to date. She has proved that all the dance songs she's been pulling out were just little steps to this masterpice. She looks like an angel and her vocals are really impressive. If Maddona is the pop queen, Christina is the princess!

Joe started as a YouTube artist and after a while there, he was signed by Universal and Lava Records, which took his carrer to a new level. His debut music video was released on July 13, 2010. It features Joe in a Superman like suit who is seeing some pics of his girlfriend and waiting her to come back.

"Paris (Ooh La La)" is the lead track of their eponymous and third studio album, released on June 8, 2010. The music video premiered on Hulu on July 19. The track is a powerful rock song, in which I realised how great are her vocal abilities. Grace Potter appeared in my radar after this song, and I must say I'm really glad she did.

There're huge expectatives with Katy's sophomore album, which has already brought us the summer hit "California Gurls". The second single, will be no expecption. "Teenage Dream" was released to radio stations on July 22, 2010. The cover looks very Alice in Wonderland like, and the song is really like that. It talks about teenage dreams after all. It's softer than "California Gurls" but it's much more powerful. Her voice sound really cool and it's very catchy. You'll be singing it on the first listen!

Music Idol 2009 winner, the Bulgarian version of  Idol, Magi Djanavarova, has recently released her debut album, the almost complete bulgarian "Purva stypka". The only english song is "Catch You". It's an Rn'B album, and even if I don't understand a thing she's saying, I love it! She has incrediblly powerful vocals and it feels really electrizing, I could easily listen it without problems or boredness. She has filmed two music videos, her own song "Trqbva da znam" (I Have to Know)  and as a featured artist with Miro, "Svetut E Moi". "Trqbva da znam" is incredible. I can imagine what she is saying through that video and the song has a great rythm. The 1:20 part with a quieter voice, WOW. I want to see some english material now!

Don't Stop Believing: 1st Live Show Recap! UPDATE: YouTube Videos Posted!



The 1st Live Show took off today evening and I finally understood it's metod. The 6 groups perform with only two going into the finals. The highest vote getter advances instantly, and the second and third placers sing once again in order to be saved by the judges, to take part in a wildcard show. Both teams advance, being the other four instantly eliminated. They are also doing a DSB group called "The Supergroup". They are currently five singers but five more will be added next week and on and on.

I'm really digging this new show. It has an incredible concept and it was really enjoyable! It's like a breeze of fresh air compared to an old talent show format. This could easily become my favourite show!

Catching Up With: The Unconventionals: Push the Button, Single + New Album

The song was available for downlod on June 27, 2010 and their album will be released on July 25, which title is "Flower to the People". They are really quircky and they feel really, how can I say it, old but contemporary. Unconventionals! Well, I guess the name describe them perfectly.

"Shine On Forever (Photo Frame)" is their upcoming single, which will be released on the 29 August 2010. A music video for the single debuted on YouTube on July 2, 2010 and it was directed by Lauren Pushkin and produced by PMA Digital. I really liked it, is very dance and they have changed a lot since their debut "Pop", which was not good at all. Bad for Syco, they dropped them when the best is coming.

It combines some drawings with real images, a very sexy and hot video overall. I loved the part of the love grave. RIP Love. And both are really adorable.

Catching Up With: James Johnston: First Single, Rollercoaster












James Johnston was the Australian Idol Season 7 third placer. I really didn't liked him on Idol, he wasn't ready for it, but I think he may have evolved enough to be considered as a singer. He has just released his new single, "Rollercoaster" on March 22, 2010 and a music video for it debuted on YouTube on April 15. The song deals with a couple in which the woman is a "rollercoaster" (crazy bitch). I actually like it, it's a modern rock song with country influences, after all, James is a country boy. I love the echoed singing at 2:07 and then the acoustic transition is just brilliant. I also liked the video a lot, it was really well filmed and edited, very enjoyable.
