Anna Coddington is one of New Zealand’s foremost heroines of independent pop music, as is evident on her debut, self-produced album “The Lake”, released in June 2008.
Coddington has been quietly kicking around New Zealand’s music scene for some time now. She has been heard singing in the background of some well known tunes by New Zealand artists like Bic Runga, Anika Moa, SJD, Dimmer and more, and in the foreground of casually released pop gems by her former bands Handsome Geoffery and Duchess.
Coddington grew up in the sleepy seaside town of Raglan, New Zealand. By age 11 her Dad had taught her the 4/4 rock beat and she was clanging away on the drums with gay abandon, by 14 she had wrangled a few guitar chords out of her Mum, and by age 16 she was fronting and writing for her first band, Handsome Geoffery.
Coddington later filled the same roles in four piece band Duchess- a more mature and refined distillation of her talents. She co-produced, with Edmund McWilliams Jnr (aka. Ed Cake of Bressa Creeting Cake fame), the six-track "Duchess" E.P, which was released independently in 2005, and distributed by Rhythmethod. It included the singles “You Buried Me Alive” and “Raglan City” (which won the 2007 Juice TV “People’s Choice” award).
When Duchess disbanded in 2006, Coddington toured nationally and internationally as support act and backing singer for other New Zealand acts, but by 2007 an overwhelming desire to focus her creative energy back into her own tunes took hold, and put into motion the process which culminated in her album, “The Lake”.
Ms Coddington has a unique talent for writing beautiful songs with a twist of reality, making "The Lake" a delightfully engaging album.

歌手名称：Strand Of Oaks
公司厂牌：La Société Expéditionnaire
Strand of Oaks is Timothy Showalter, an Indiana Mennonite turned Pennsylvania Hebrew Dayschool teacher who even drives the school bus for extra cash (and has sing-alongs with the pupils as they ease on down the road). It's like a scene from "Behind the Music" if the weed-soaked Tom Petty was your busdriver, and in this case the metaphors, spread throughout nine tracks, are to be taken quite literally.
Leave Ruin is Strand of Oaks' hometown deathbed-confession hymnal, the soundtrack of an Exodus. It's been back roads and parenthetical side streets for Showalter since he left his ruin of small town America. As a Hoosier transplant, he landed in the fertile musical soil of Northeastern Pennsylvania with a few key twists of fate that would turn his tragedy into trajectory.
While escaping a relationship gone worse, Showalter returned home to a house burned down, leaving all of his earthly possessions charred in flames. Spending nights in downtown hotels and on park benches with a borrowed guitar, he began to face the proverbial demons. Like any good roller coaster ride there came an upside, as inspiration grew like weeds within the rubble; songs led to shows, which led to tours of the US and UK with Jason Anderson and Kimya Dawson. Leave Ruin took shape shortly thereafter while touring and collaborating with Lou Rogai (Lewis & Clarke).
Taking cues from such luminaries as Neil Young (On the Beach era) and a burgeoning Springsteen, Showalter extends his musical gesture and searches to find modesty in the midst of confusion, addressing insecurities and settling existential debt with a simple and beautiful delivery. The personification of a Midwestern Grandfather's advice, his songs smack with hard truth and poignant severity, from child-like naivete to heart worn wisdom... sparse guitar, hammond, rhodes and wooden instruments support an atmosphere that is tender and raw, at times uncomfortable, shockingly candid, and unforgettable.

White Rabbits 从中西部乾旱的平原上来到纽约.虽然他们在这里待了只有一年多的时间,他们出众的创作能力和对乐器把握的恰到好处就已经得到了Say Hey公司的赏识以及制作人Chris Zane的垂青(曾为Shy Child, Asobi Seksu, Les Savy Fav制作过专辑).
他们成功的做出了一张充满震撼和创造力的专辑.在Fort Nightly中他们透露出来了毫不做作的乐观精神,这让听众在面对困难的时候也可以鼓起掌来. White Rabbits无论是音乐还是个人风格都相当有范儿,他们带来全新的体验,这正是人们举着放大镜到处找寻的.
The band formed while several of the members were attending the University of Missouri; Greg Roberts and Stephen Patterson met at the college in 2004. Alex Even, Adam Russell and Greg had formerly played in the band Texas Chainsaw Mass Choir. Originally, White Rabbits had five members, but following relocation to New York City the following year, the band expanded to six members. The sixth member, Jamie Levinson, had grown up on the same street as Roberts in Webster Groves, Missouri. Roberts and Levinson previously played in a ska band together in high school, The Hubcaps, as well as an acoustic punk band in college.
The White Rabbits recorded their first studio album, Fort Nightly, and released it in 2007 to the public through Say Hey Records. The album was critically lauded throughout the media.
In addition to consistent touring, they have been featured on NPR's World Cafe, where the band discussed how they met and formed in the college town of Columbia, Missouri, their early sound, and performed three songs.
They have also performed on the Late Show with David Letterman.
In 2009, the band will release their second album, titled It's Frightening, produced by Britt Daniel, lead singer and guitarist of Spoon. The album is set to be released on TBD Records, which also hosts the bands Radiohead and Underworld.

专辑名称：Putumayo Presents - India
Putumayo World Music presents India, a CD collection showcasing India’s rich musical variety, from traditional and acoustic music to Bollywood and electronica. India’s emergence as a global economic power has brought increased awareness of this extraordinarily diverse country’s multicultural offerings, its music foremost among them.
India’s thriving popular music scene—an adjunct to the country’s immense Bollywood film industry—is highlighted on this collection. The love ballad “Tere Bina,” from the 2007 blockbuster Guru, was written by acclaimed film composer and Oscar winner A.R. Rahman, who took home the awards in the Best Score and Best Original Song categories for his work on Best Picture Slumdog Millionaire. The song also features Chinmayee, the award-winning female playback singer (an artist who records the songs that actors lip-synch). Rajeshwari Sachdev’s “Maavan Te Tiyan,” is another hit Bollywood song from the film The Perfect Husband.
Guitarist Sanjay Divecha, a Mumbai native who performed Western pop music in Los Angeles before returning home in search of his roots, contributes “Naino Sey”. The song features vocalist Kailash Kher, one of the most popular singers in India today thanks to his extensive work in Bollywood and string of pop hits.
Several stellar musicians display their Indian classical music expertise. Satish Vyas, represented by his song “Homeward Journey,” is a renowned master of the santoor, or Indian hammered dulcimer. Deepak Ram (“Ganesha”) is a virtuoso of the bansuri (Indian flute), while Bombay Jayashri (“Zara Zara”) specializes in the Carnatic South Indian vocal tradition.
Taking Indian music in a new direction, evocative British/Indian singer-songwriter Susheela Raman blends her South Indian classical music training with Western jazz and acoustic folk influences in “Nagumomo.” Kiran Ahluwalia, a Canadian vocalist of Indian descent, offers a fresh take on India’s poetic ghazal (love song) tradition through the moving “Vo Kuch.” Kiran worked for Putumayo World Music for three years before pursuing a professional music career.
Finally, Uma Mohan’s ode to the Hindu god Shiva, “Shiva Panchakshara Stotram/Shiva Shadakshara Stotram,” exemplifies the spiritual aspect of Indian music that has appealed to Western musicians ever since the Beatles embraced the sitar and transcendental meditation. These days, Indian devotional music is used by millions of practitioners of yoga and meditation around the world.

本张专辑歌曲的旋律和Jewel前几张专辑的风格大多相同，都以抒情为主。但在制作人Lester A. Mendez的协助之下，Jewel将舞曲，民谣以及民间音乐等多种音乐元素融入到了这张新作《0304》之中。而Jewel的演唱还坚持了其一贯的风格，嗓音清澈而且具有磁性，清新自然，仿佛阿拉斯加的皑皑白雪一样纯净。然而Jewel并不是只靠与生俱来的嗓音而立足，Jewel和另一位流行/摇滚女歌手Sheryl Crow就有很多相似之处：她们的音乐给人的感觉都十分的独特。两人对歌曲的旋律起伏的把握有异曲同工之妙。

Betty Ford Center was formed in July 2005. Shortly afterwards, they won four national contests, including the ”Heineken Jammin’ Festival” contests, whose guests were SMASHING PUMPKINS, PEARL JAM, JULIETTE AND THE LICKS, AND MANY OTHERS. In January they recorded “Enjoy the rehab” at the Red House Recordings studio with David Lenci (sound engineer for Shellac and Blonde Redhead). They appeared on the front page of several local and national newspapers, acclaimed for their outstanding originality and, at the same time, for their incendiary live performances. The band also made many beautiful gigs and got many great reviews, among which we can surely mention the one written by Carlo Pastore, VJ of “Our Noise” and "TRL", ON AIR EVERY DAY ON MTV. As the band kept performing throughout Italy and also abroad (Belgium, Germany…) they often aired on well known tv channels and radios (including BRF, the belgian national radio...). They were also noticed by a producer, Matteo Cifelli, and started moving between Rome and Milan recording “UNCOOL”, a powerful five track EP released in 2008. Shortly afterwards they started recording “POISON FOR YOU”, their first full length. It contains 16 tracks full of violence, sick sweetness and sensual psychosis. IT'S JUST COME OUT (FEB, 15, 2009)

The story behind Yonlu is one of tragedy and beauty. A young man from the city of Porto Alegre, it can be hard to find one's identity in a Brazilian city off the beaten path. Writing hundreds of songs in his youth, he committed suicide at age 16 with nothing but his online community of fans and the sounds he offered them. Sounding something like a cross between a lo-fi Caetano Veloso meeting the guitar stylings of Nick Drake. This is a showcase of the sounds of a soul lost between the lines, and fortunately he left behind a taste of a young mind working wonders.

公司厂牌：Silent Parade Records
Intimate and playful, placid and serene. Melancholy and dark, with occasional hints of passing sadness. This is the sound of Sydney Wayser, a twenty one year-old singer-songwriter who with her French father and American mother has lived her life between Paris and Los Angeles. Sydney’s music is rife with tales and adventure; it quite simply draws you into her world, delicately.
Her first album, entitled “Silent Parade”, showcases Sydney’s elegant blend of strings, piano, guitar and percussion, that at once enraptures and brings you into her world where carousels’ turn with youthful exuberance, and love is questioned in lucid prose. It is the ode to simplicity and a nod to grace that truly defines the impact of Sydney’s writing and voice. There’s a tranquil and frozen moment feel, reminiscent of a Modigliani portrait hatched in a small studio in Montparnasse. Time spent in Paris only ripened her desire to study the great painters, singers, and iconic figures of both worlds, and fed her mind and soul with a wealth of experience and vision with which to develop her music.
A playful though somewhat introverted spirit, as a teenager she cultivated her passion for writing music and developed her intellect and vast interests, including ballet, film, and literature, later honing in on music as her true love. Place de la Bastille was inspired by the famous French film Amelie. “Jean-Pierre Jeunet uses striking colors to create a repetitive pattern through the film. Occasionally he introduces light blue, a more subtle color to symbolize something significant, but hidden when blinded by the red and green. I thought this was an analog for finding some of life’s more crucial elements, buried amidst all the distraction of our days.”
There is a surface paradox at play here: Sydney’s music is free and colorful and wide-eyed; recalling a young girl on Parisian side streets, in her mind conversing with the great artists and writers who once pounced on those same cobblestones. At the same time, she conveys a charm and wit well beyond her twenty years, and with an unusual command of language and phrasing.
Silent Parade is a moving collection, showcasing a talented, young, and personable songwriter with a visceral offering of poetry and song that remarks on the beauty of innocence.

Antje Duvekot is one of the brightest singer-songwriters to rise out of Boston's competitive acoustic music scene. She is releasing her second studio album, "The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer" on Black Wolf Records on March 17, 2009.
Antje chose one of her favorite songwriters, Richard Shindell to produce the album. Richard lent his talent to the record and brought in well respected musicians such as John Gorka, Lucy Kaplansky and Victor Krauss.
"What a blessing to have worked with someone as talented as Antje. With a voice like hers, and songs as good as these, a producer (especially a first-time producer!) just tries to get out of the way, to do no harm, and to let the artist speak for herself." - Richard Shindell
"The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer" demonstrates why, according to The Boston Globe, "Antje Duvekot's provocative, dark-eyed ballads are becoming the talk of the folk world. Duvekot has gotten hotter, faster than any local songwriter in recent memory."
The songs on the album reflect both Duvekot's personal journeys and her observations of those of others. Antje remarks "I've come to find that writing about someone else's struggles or happiness feels just as cathartic as writing about my own."
Along with 7 new songs, Antje and Richard decided to add studio versions of some of her best known songs such as, "Merry Go Round", which was used in a Bank of America national TV ad campaign as well as radio favorite "Long Way". "Since I first recorded this older material live, I have become a better performer", Antje explains "I decided to revive the songs that were worthy and produce them properly so that I should not be such a bad mother to them".
Singer songwriter Ellis Paul says "Antje is the rare artist that can write about the social and the personal in the same breath. She is as understated as she is wise and her songs go down mentally as well as soulfully. Her voice has a sound of innocence and naivety which makes razor sharp insights into the human condition."
"As far as I can tell, Antje is the whole package?I've had this reaction once in the past 10 years, and that was the first time I heard Patty Griffin." Dave Marsh former Editor of Rolling Stone and XM/ Sirius Satellite Host

"This is a brilliant, brilliant album.” says former Rolling Stone music editor Dave Marsh. “I have had this reaction once in the last 10 years and that was the first time I heard Patty Griffin.”
“Duvekot has gotten hotter, faster than any local songwriter in recent memory. Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice. She believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community”.

This young five-piece has recorded a demo that set a new standard in tightness and heaviness and brought them the title as Demo Of The Month in Germany´s Metal Hammer. "There is no other band like BLOODWORK existing in Germany and it's not likely there will be one in the near future! Everything fits perfectly from the songwriting in the vein of Soilwork, Hatesphere or Killswitch Engage spiced with (Melodic) Death Metal parts and the brilliant sound till the outstanding live performance. This band is far from ordinary" (Anzo Sadony, Metal Hammer Germany) Besides that BLOODWORK played WACKEN Open Air and SUMMER BREEZE Open Air 2008 as an unsigned band.

In the summer of 2004 the two long-time friends Tomas Olsson and Fredrik Bergh decided to go back to their musical roots and start a metal band, they teamed up with Urban Breed and Oskar Belin to form bloodbound.
A demo was made and shipped off to a bunch of record labels around the world in order to get a record-deal. After a couple of weeks the offers started to drop in and the band was overwhelmed by the great response they had gotten. A record-deal was signed with Metal Heaven for the European territory and with Marquee/Avalon for the Asian territory.
In 2005 they started the recordings of their debut album "Nosferatu" which was released in early 2006, and became a big success with top reviews around the world. Straight after the recordings Oskar Belin left the band because he didn't have the time to go on tour and play live, Pelle Åkerlind (Morgana Lefay) was added to the line-up to replace him. The album took them on tour playing gigs with bands like Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity, Evergrey, Pretty Maids and Sabaton to name a few. The success of the album also gave them a license deal with Rock Machine Records, Brazil and Mystic Empire, Russia later that year.
During the 2006 tour they had some "in and out members" including Kristian Andrén (Wuthering Heights, Memento Mori, Tad Morose), Johan Sohlberg (The Storyteller), Jörgen Andersson (Baltimoore) and Markus Albertson (Seven Sins). At the end of the tour Urban Breed decided to leave the band to focus a 100% on his long planned solo project.
After a very turbulent and hectic year they really felt that they needed some stability in the band and asked Tomas' younger brother Henrik Olsson (guitar) and Johan Sohlberg (bass) to join the band as permanent members. They accepted and the band started to work on their second studio album "Book Of The Dead". The spot as bloodbound's new lead singer was not yet filled and it took the band a while to find a worthy replacement. After a lot of searching and auditioning the band finally decided to go with German born Michael Bormann (Jaded Heart, Bonfire, J.R. Blackmore, Rain) who joined the band in early January 2007. The album "Book Of The Dead" was recorded during January and February 2007 and was released on May 25th 2007.
The word of the band had by now started to spread and the new album got them on tour with Hammerfall, which gave them the opportunity to play for a bigger crowd. It also led to playing bigger festivals such as the Sweden Rock Festival. Shortly after the release of "Book Of The Dead" the band realized that with Michael's busy schedule it would be impossible to do all the live shows coming up. Urban Breed was asked to stand in, and ended up doing all the shows for the tour and eventually got back with the band. At the end of 2007 the band started to work on their third studio album. The planned release date is set for September 2008.

About The Bigfellas
San Diego Union-Tribune's 2006 BEST LOCAL BAND IN SAN DIEGO: see for yourself. We're certifiable, I mean certified. and again ... San Diego Union-Tribune's 2007 BEST LOCAL BAND IN SAN DIEGO
San Diegos Bigfellas are a four-piece band of smartasses with original songs like 4:20, I Wish That I Were Gay, Adam & Eve & Ted & Alice among others. The bands sound is a mélange of The Police and Steely Dan yet with the oft-goofy approach of Barenaked Ladies (whom we know we can easily take in a barfight, give us one time and those Canadian hipsters are going down!).
Theyre aggressively eclectic in jumping genres slacker jamband, blues, faux-country, funk/jazz, cabaret, or Stones. In addition to inventing the smartass genre, theyve also single-handedly invented the one-song genre of Golf Rap with the song On The Green, hands-down the most foul-mouthed golf song of all time.
As for the band members themselves, theyre 30 somethings (ahem) with the maturity of 19 year olds. The band is made up of a Canadian, a black guy, an Irishman and an atheist. No thats not the start of an ethnic joke, thats just The Bigfellas.

歌手名称：Teresa Salgueiro Com Lusitânia Ensemble
主唱Teresa Salgueiro，是一个很优秀也很有个性的女声乐家，声音空灵、脆亮、舒缓……唱歌的時候，总是轻轻地颔着头，眼睑低垂，她说话也很好听。女声在真假声的处理上也是很独到的，让你觉得很合适，就应该在这里换，才能达到这种感觉。乐队的弦乐演奏很有特色，吉他、手风琴、大提琴……都恰到好处的配合着出色的女声。照片上的 Teresa，从来双唇轻缄，一抹闲定又好象转瞬即逝的微笑，一双黑瞳望得人怔忡，而她的歌声更是美到令人心悸……

REVIEW FROM ERIK LACITIS , SEATTLE TIMES
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, as a columnist for The Seattle Times, I wrote numerous times about The Heats, a local rock band Steve Pearson, now with British Racing Green, was an integral part of that fabulous group -- a band that to me was like a reincarnation of the BeatlesThe music magazine Goldmine would describe The Heats' first album, "Have An Idea," as "one of the Top-50 power-pop albums of all time." Their live performances drew fanatic crowdsEventually, The Heats broke up, but Steve Pearson never gave up on his love for music. He continues to play to this day, this time in British Racing Green, which also includes his wife, LucetteI've had a chance to listen to their latest two recordings, which can be heard on their Web site, http://www.myspace.com/stevepearsonandbritishracinggreen "Goodbye Mr. Jefferson" and "Long Way To Heaven" continue the legacy from The Heats -- catchy tunes with great harmonies If you believe what the Beatles and the Everly Brothers stood for, you, too, will become a British Racing Green fan Gee, do I sound as if I really like this group?

专辑名称：The Show Is On The Road
More than a decade since his last major label release, PALEFACE, a founding member of NYC's Anti-folk movement, is back with The Show Is On The Road (Ramseur Records). The album is an intimate, 11-song diary that transcends genres with its ingenuous lyrics and deceptively unassuming style - just Paleface on guitar, harmonica & banjo, darling Monica "Mo" Samalot on drums and backing vocals and a few guest performances.... Paleface is the sort of artist who brings you into his world - his voice is sweetly ravaged and effortlessly expressive, as intimate as a friend whispering in your ear. The album is farewell love letter to his longtime home, New York City, and an embrace of his new life in the South and on the road with "Mo".
