Roskilde Line-up 2012 - Must see!!

Not, all the highest hopes were fulfilled, but the line-up is absolutely accepted. And more than that. This year's line-up is very diversified, and almost explodes of good signings all over. Both the Orange-stage blockbusters and the small stages coming up stuff seems to be very interesting. Here are my must sees: Soon will come my could sees!!

Roskilde hopes 2012

So far Roskilde 2012 has a great line-up - especialloy if you look at the headliners: Bruce Springsteen, Björk, Bon Iver, Roots and The Cure. Very fine - very traditional. I still miss some good indie-acts and some interesting coming-up-stuff. Here are some of my highest hopes at the moment - and realistic ones too (but not very coming-up!!):
The Shins - The new album is their best so far.
Girls - Very promising album from last year.
Mazzy Star - Reunited and playing festivals.
Grant Lee Buffalo - I missed the reunoin-tour last year. And I still have great momories of their 1994 Roskilde show!

The largest concerts ever

Found this Wikipedia-post about largest concerts ever. Check it out. The winner is Rod Stewart.

Weekend cover #4 - Two cousins

Slow Club are most definitely a "best record of 2011" candidate with their new record Paradise. On the deluxe edition of Paradise you'll also find a great cover of their first single Two Cousins as well. A 1999 interpretation by Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton. Fabulous.

Support Jason Molina

The great Jason Molina, aka Songs Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co., seems to be in big personal troubles. This is taken from his website:

Where is Jason Molina? (September 19th, 2011)

Many of you have inquired as to Jason’s whereabouts and well-being since he canceled his tours with Will Johnson in 2009. Over the last two years Jason has been in and out of rehab facilities and hospitals in England, Chicago, Indianapolis, and New Orleans. It has been a very trying time for Jason, his friends, and his family. Although no one can be sure what the future holds, we feel very encouraged by the recent steps Jason has taken on the road towards becoming healthy and productive once again. Unfortunately, because he has no medical insurance, he has accrued substantial medical bills. We are asking all friends of Jason’s music to come together with a showing of financial support for him. Please consider a contribution to his medical fund. Feel free to forward this to any and all appropriate parties. We are hoping to raise whatever funds we possibly can for Jason. He is currently working on a farm in West Virginia raising goats and chickens for the next year or so, and is looking forward to making great music again. Please also show your support and well wishes by sending letters and postcards to:

Jason Molina
P.O. Box 423
Beaver, WV 25813

If you do not wish to use paypal, please make donations out to Ashley Lawson at the same address.

With our sincere thanks, The Molina Family

So all lovers of beautiful music - let's support Mr. Molina.

Björk in the past doing jazz

Björk's album/app is a whirl of innovation – and the music's beautiful. Listen to Björks new album. And listen to this performance on national icelandic tv from 1990. Björk is singing her jazz together with Tríó Guðmundar Ingólfssonar. These songs are found on Gling-Glo. Björk is trying out her jazz vocals here. At the same time she was still together with The Sugarcubes.

Listen to Low live with Mark Kozelek guest performance

I have earlier claimed that Low's C'mon album must be one of this years best albums. I missed them live when they visited Copenhagen but found this great two days old live-show from The Great American Music Hall. As a bonus the one and only Mark Kozelek guest-appears on two songs. Listen and download here.

Mick Jagger and Joss Stone ready to debut SuperHeavy

SuperHeavy is almost ready to pop their debut. They began the works of the album in 2009. In early 2009, A. R. Rahman, Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, Joss Stone and Damian Marley experimented at a studio in Los Angeles, trying to "write songs which had meaning".

This group is gonna be superfamous. Joss Stone... wauw... Jagger in pink suits... wauw...

Worthy Mercury Price winners?

The Mercury Price winner is announced on Tuesday. And there are - in our humble opinion - some potential worthy winners and some less worthy (why the f*** Adele got shortlisted for Mercury price is incomprehendable).

King Creosote & Jon Hopkins for their collaborative Diamond Mind

P.J. Harvey for Let England shake

Gwilym Simcock for his Good days at Schloss Elmau

These are the ones that we find the most worthy. Some good potential winners that didn't make it to our list could be Ghostpoet, Elbow, Anna Calvi and James Blake. But no, we're betting on the three mentioned above. And for Adele...stfu
