SEASICK STEVE SONIC SOUL SURFER

I had the pleasure of meeting the incredibly talented Seasick Steve today at the launch of his new album ”Sonic Soul Surfer” (which I got a preview of at last year, have a look/read here) at HMV in Oxford Street. He comes across as a really nice and genuine guy, and after chatting to him for a bit (some of it being in norwegian) I now know that he’s happily married to a norwegian lady, and that when he’s not on the road they live together in a beautiful small town in Norway.

Before I left I had a browse around the shop and picked up the new Mini Mansions album ”The Great Pretenders” which is absolutely sensational, and ”Strangers to Ourselves” by Modest Mouse, which I’m currently listening to. Having only previously heard the single ”Lampshades on Fire”, I’ve got really high expectations to this album.

The Dead Weather, Concert Prive




Spending my Saturday night rediscovering The Dead Weather while waiting eagerly for their new album. I’m pretty sure they must be one of the world’s best supergroups, with Alison Mosshart (The Kills) on vocals, Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs) on both vocals and drums (a singing drummer!), Dean Fertita (Queens of The Stone Age) on guitar and keys, and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs) on bass. That’s a whole lotta talent in one band! If you’ve got an hour to spare I would highly recommend you watch the concert above, it’s absolutely incredible.

MINI MANSIONS @ SISTER RAY ACE

Earlier this week (yesterday..), Mini Mansions played a mini-gig at Sister Ray Ace in Shoreditch. Their set was a combination of old and new songs - a few from their 2010 self-titled album ”Mini Mansions", covers of Blondie’s heart of glass and Sparks’ Sherlock Holmes, plus some new treats from their upcomming album ”The Great Pretenders”, that is due on the 23 of March on T-Bone Burnett’s Electromagnetic recordings. So, save the date and get to the nearest record store, this one’s a must-have.

Out and about in Camden the other day, with the lovely and very talented Ellie Smith following me around with her camera. Pretty pleased with the outcome, if I may say so myself.

LADIES DAY

Today being the International women’s day, I figured it was a good time for a repost of my playlist ”Girls can do it too”. Have a listen here if you're in the market for some great female fronted bands and musicians.
