Great new song – Kimbra

Here’s a new one you might like: Love In High Places by Kimbra, a new female artist from NZ. It’s got a slight Tove Lo pace and vocals, I think. But this is pacier with a catchy, foot tapping lyric and Kimbra has an interesting voice. Here’s the story of this and Kimbra’s other song on Direct Lyrics

Annick delivers steamy hit for Europe’s clubs

“Give it to me” is the turbo-charged, wickedly erotic and risqué new single from Annick, stage persona of Tammy Pelchat from Ontario, Canada. Annick explodes onto the scene with her turbo-charged, wickedly erotic, debut single “Give It To Me”. Reminiscent of such old skool, funky, sleezehouse gems as Jamie Principle “Baby Wants To Ride”, Lil Louis “French Kiss”, and Laidback “White Horse” or the tongue-in cheek playfulness of the dance-pop, Eurodance and house of 20 Fingers with 94’s controversial “Short Dick Man.” “Give It To Me” drives it all home, as it adds some nu-flavour to the already spiced up mix of retro electro delight and oozes with raw sexual passion to become more erotic and controversial than Berlin’s “Sex (I’m A)” or Soft Cell’s “Sex Dwarf”. HOT AND SEXY Annick says, “if Give It To Me is a little too hot and sexy for your kitchen, there is even a few mixes that will politely douse the fires. It’s still deliciously erotic and seductive pop dance candy.” Accompanying Annick singles are scorching hot mixes from some of the biggest names in clubland. She’s working with three-time Grammy Award winners The Klubjumpers (known for their awesome mixes of Madonna, Mariah Carey […]

The Framed release EP after notable gigs and festival

The Framed are a 4-piece band from Aberdeen consisting of Glynn McGregor (drums), Gareth Burr (guitars), Steve Ross (rhythm guitar) and Jamie Reid (vocals and bass). The group formed due to a distinct love of all things musical driven by a desire to get out of working 9 to 5. Their music is upbeat rock with some punk simplicity, indie sensibilities and some sometimes naive and thoughtful lyrical content thrown in for a more Vindaloo type kick. The band have recently recorded their debut EP at Monnow Valley Studios with producer Paul Tipler and mastered it at Metropolis Studios with John Davis. With the release of the EP ” I Don’t Know “this month, their first festival performance already behind them and gigs plays over last few months, the future should be exciting for this band. “I Don’t Know” is the latest single from The Framed and will be released on 30 June 2014.

Led Zeppelin Aiming at Numbers 8, 10 and 11 in the U.S.; Mariah Carey’s Album Plummets An Astounding 75%

Whole story on VVN Music Hits Daily Double, the chart prognostication site, has projected that Led Zeppelin will take positions 8, 10 and 11 on this week’s sales chart. Like in most countries, the band’s debut album seems to be the winner by a small margin with projected sales of 31,500 which should put them at number 8. Unlike other places, Led Zeppelin II appears to have out sold Led Zeppelin III by a margin of 29,400 to 28,800.  III had fairly consistently been coming in second in the rest of the world. If the numbers hold, it should put II and III at numbers 10 and 11. Those positions seem fairly safe as the album at 12, Michael Jackson’s Xscape, is only projected at 25,300. Mariah Carey‘s new album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse takes a major fall from 3 to the high 20’s with projected sales down a whopping 75%. Normal second week sales see decreases of 50% to 55%. The sales support our contention that Carey’s latest will almost certainly not even reach gold status (500,000 sales) as it will struggle to hit 100,000 by week three. Another deluxe package reissue, Soundgarden‘s Superunknown, looks to sell around 10,500 to place in […]

New folk trio record with new absorbed influences after Europe tour

After a busy year touring in Europe, including UK and Ireland, Donegal folk and roots trio the Henry Girls have released their new album “Louder than Words,” which is set to delight a growing international audience. “Louder than Words” brings together the Henry Girls’ trademark three part harmonies sitting warmly alongside Joleen’s harp with a nod to Irish folk and Americana, evoking shades of Gillian Welch and The Indigo Girls. Absorbing New Influences Since the release of their much-acclaimed “December Moon,” nominated in the Huffington Post’s Top 10 albums of 2013 and produced by Calum Malcolm (Lau, Blue Nile, Heidi Talbot), Karen, Lorna and Joleen have continued absorbing new influences. Listeners have said “Louder than Words” is their finest work to date. A musical fusion of the Donegal coastline and the Appalachian mountains, the Henry Girls combine their Irish heritage with a contemporary sound imbued with compassion, insight and warmth. “Louder Than Words” has already been declared a fresh and finely crafted body of work with strong folk roots that invite you into the Henry Girls’ Donegal world. Their new single “Maybe” taken from the album will be released in the U.K on 30 June 2014. Maybe on Youtube: Press […]

Mancunian songwriter JazFreddy Royal has produced a new club anthem “Samba! Samba!” to raise money for international children’s charity UNICEF themed on the 2014 World Cup being held in Rio. The “Foe We All Miss You” singer managed to persuade Benedict Farr and Steve Oliver, managers at the National Football Museum and the manager of That’s Entertainment to support the fundraising by selling his song through their outlets.  Farr says: “This is the second time, we have worked with JazFreddy, and we are impressed with his professionalism and dedication.” JazFreddy performed his single “Foe, We All Miss You” to a Manchester City Stadium packed with 48,000 fans and donated all proceeds to the late Marc Vivien Foe’s dream to build a school for young footballers in Yaoundé, Cameroon’s capital city.
