Acho as coletâneas de house do selo Hed Kandi ok. Já ouvi compilações melhores (mesmo porque prefiro um house mais "left-field"), mas também sei que há muita coisa pior por aí.
Porém, o motivo principal desse post é a boa surpresa que me causou a série Winter Chill, do mesmo selo. Tudo bem, as coletâneas não são novas, mas pelo que ouvi têm um critério de seleção muito bom. Os volumes trazem alguns nomes bastante conhecidos, como Morcheeba, Goldfrapp ou Thievery Corporation, mas os grandes achados estão justamente nos artistas de menos tradição.
Os gêneros variam do trip-hop lentíssimo ao folk alternativo. Sente aí a ótima faixa Moonsglow, do Gaelle, que está no Hed Kandi: Winter Chill 06.04 (disc 1).

31. Jul. 2008, 20:29 von JNellzThere are SOOOO many artists out there that are trying to make it, but probably never will. The problem is, people don't want REAL music anymore. People with ZERO talent can get a record deal and go platinum(I'm not sayin' that everyone that goes platinum has no talent, c'mon...my favorite artist is Alicia Keys). I don't get it. I find a new artist pretty much everyday, and these people have TALENT. People like Conya Doss, Algebra, Kissey Asplund, Sy Smith, Wayna(she's about to be my new favorite artist, I promise you. Her Higher Ground album is great.), Lina, Ayo, Choklate, Esperanza Spalding, Alice Smith, Amel Larrieux, Santogold, Tamia, Res, Carla Duren, Kokoh, Syleena Johnson, Esthero and even Goapele, Chrisette Michele, and Ledisi will probably NEVER be that successful.*
Look out for Janelle Monáe, Jazmine Sullivan, Keri Hilson, Solange(yes SOLANGE!),Mylah,Teedra Moses, and Michelle Williams.
However, it's good to see people like Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, and India.Arie doin' their thing. …

16. Mär. 2008, 21:14 von MomofunkAfter my last rant wondering where the good music had run away to, I've been pleasantly surprised lately.
Right now, Gaelle is blowing my mind a bit. It depresses me to know that this album has been out since 2004 and I just discovered her in the last month! What really hooked me was mercy street, her cover of the Peter Gabriel classic. I stumbled across it somewhere on Last.fm radio and it was good enough to lead me to her album. It's phenomenal. There's some Erykah Badu soul, some Blue Six mellowness, mixed together around her fabulous voice and some interesting lyrical content. Highly recommended!
I've been digging Tegan and Sara lately as well. I've known about them for years, but must have had bad luck. Everything I heard sounded like overly whiny, annoying crappy folk music. Wow, was I wrong. Last.fm radio and some tracks from hunnybee7 showed me how wrong of an impression that was, so i ended up picking up their first album. …

16. Jan. 2007, 2:51 von ___kneesocksI thought I'd pick up on the alphabet meme that's caught on in other last.fm journals, though it's going to be very hard for me to choose the "best" for some of the letters. I think that with nearly 19 days of music and 612 artists, I'm allowed to choose up to the top 5 for some of the letters. So here we go:
' & #
first: 'Nsync (don't ask)
last: 50 Cent
best: 30 Seconds to Mars
(oh iTunes samplers giving me random artists that I never really listen to, ever)
best: I really can't decide; there are so many... Augustana, Autolux & The Arcade Fire, Air... and you can't forget Apollo Sunshine
last: Brynne Calleran
best: Bouncing Souls, Broken Social Scene, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Black Box Recorder & last but definitely not least The Beatles
first: The Caesars
last: The Cure
best: Captain Audio & Camera Obscura
first: Daddy Yankee
last: Dressy Bessy
best: Doves, The Distraction, Death From Above 1979 & David Bowie
