Sia´s crazy ballerina

There´s something quite unsettling about crazy ballerinas… If not think Black Swan. And what if that creepy ballerina is an incredibly talented 11 year-old kid dancing on her own in a empty apartment making crazy faces? Sia Chandelier´s song  is not really my style (I don´t have anything to say against it though, I think she´s a great song writer and has an incredibly voice. Just not my style), but watching this little girl dance… Simply wooow! Flabbergasting.

Song: Chandelier

Artist: Sia

This Is All Yours is Alt-J´s new album

Not sure if you´re a big fan of Alt-J or not, but I am, and last September the band released their new album This Is All Yours (available now on Spotify, by the way). My first impression? Overall good, same line with  perhaps more guitars and ethnicity.  And I don´t usually  post two videos in a single post,  but I thought this time it was worth  it, watch:

While watching the video I found it visually powerful and somehow tactile… As if I could almost feel the touch of the images… Did it happen to you too or am I just nuts? And did it make you think of Woodkid´s videoclips too? Finally, something a curiosity about this video: This one above is the “Girl´s version” and there is the “Boy version”, that you can watch here.

Anyway, here my other favorite song and videoclip; Hunger Of The Pine. A sort of, how to call it… Hunger Games inspiration?

And if you´re a super geek like me and want to dig more, here you have some further information on Alt-J´s new album This Is All Yours  I found on Wikipedia, and here is the band´s website with details of their new tour.

U2 “The Fly”

 

 

This song could perfectly belong to that category of songs that just make you want to get drunk in a bar, loose control and dance. U2´s The Fly was released in1991 as part of the album Achtung Baby (one of my favorite albums ,by the way).

I´ve read on Wikipedia that Bono described the song’s subject as that of a phone call from someone in Hell who enjoys being there and telling the person on the other end of the line what he has learned.  This could very well explain why this song could be categorized as one of that kind of songs I was mentioning above…  Anyway, even if I think that U2 has been doing pretty much rubbish over the past 10 years, it is fair to say that their influence and the quality of some of their albums will always make them a classic, and a band I would always recommend to discover or even to  re-discover.

Ultraviolence – Melanchoy Lana did it again

 

I was wondering if Lana del Rey, the Nancy Sinatra of the XXI with a well studied retro style, would make it for a second decent album after her successful debut. But If you have a tendency to melancholy Ultraviolence won´t disappoint you. You might want to cut your veins after listening to the album though…

However, if you were not a fan of her before, then don´t even bother.

Dark shadows, a good movie with an awesome soundtrack

Dark Shadows is a 2012 horror comedy film directed by Tim Burton. Apparently, the movie is based on the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows that was produced for television between 1966 and 1971. If you haven´t seen the movie, watch it.  But if there´s something I would strongly recommend you, that´s its soundtrack; Black Sabbath, Elton John, Barry White, Alice Cooper…. And Sick of You by Iggy Pop and The Stooges is my favorite one.

Goodbye, Betsy, I’m goin’ away | ‘m sick of you and there ain’t no way | Don’t want to know, don’t want to see | Don’t you ever bother me

That´s just the intro, read the full song lyrics here. Sure you´ve also been sick of someone some day, so now you have the perfect song to dedicate to that person.
