Buddy Holly and the Crickets - Peggy Sue (The Arthur Murray Dance Party 12/29/57) Buddy Holly and the Crickets, Rock and Roll Specialists.
It's The Blog Sound Poll time again, the poll of key music tastemakers, and us, that was set up as an alternative to the annual 'BBC Sound of' exercise, providing another chance to say who might be big next year [go here for our story on last year's list]. Organised by Robin Seamer and Andy Von Pip of Breaking More Waves and the Von Pip Express blogs, it involved 49 blogs [listed below] each picking 5 bands. As you might suspect this generated lots of different suggestions, but there is a longlist, and there is a winner - tipped by [...]
Jack White , tras arrasar en Madrid su siguiente parada era en la mítica sala Razzmatazz de Barcelona. La lluvia se batió en retirada para recibir con todas sus luces al músico de Detroit. Los británicos Peggy Sue cumplieron con su rol de teloneros para calentar el ambiente. Pero tod@s venían a ver al mago de las seis cuerdas en clave de blues oxidado y rockero a la vez. Con media hora de retraso en el show y una buena selección musical de los 60´s, a las 22:00 [...]
Il nastrone di polaroid per l'estate 2012 Il nastrone dell'estate mi piace perché non chiede niente: non vuole essere il best dell'anno, non fa il punto della situazione, non pretende di raccontare qualcosa di speciale. Si diverte con poco, tipo stendere una playlist soltanto con canzoni che hanno "summer" nel titolo, o magari mettere un pezzo intitolato Surf e subito dopo uno Dont' Surf , oppure riempire di fuzz certi pomerggi già fin troppo afosi. E poi il nastrone estivo [...]
Peggy Sue - Fools Rush In (via flamgirlant )
Brighton natives Peggy Sue have revealed details of their forthcoming album, Peggy Sue Play The Songs Of Scorpion Rising , which will be released July 23rd, available directly from the band's website and store . In Spring 2011 Peggy Sue were invited to a temporary cinema in Hackney, London to play a live soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's 1963 film, Scorpio Rising. The band took the film's soundtrack and re-arranged it to make 12 new songs. After practicing they recorded the new songs to make the forthcoming album. On Sunday July 22nd the [...]
Peggy Sue have never seemed the type of band to get complacent. After releasing their debut in 2010, they brought out another - and may we add quite sublime - record in little over a year later in the shape and form of 20112s Acrobats . Fast-forward nine months or so and here we are. You'd be pretty foolish to think they've been resting on their laurels, right? Right you are, as the band have been hard at work on a new album, somehow managing to fit in recording a collection of covers along [...]

review by Jonathan Hamilton photos by Nate Watters A sold out Crocodile was already packed, sweaty and loud by the time U.K. band Peggy Sue took the stage. It only took a couple of songs for the crowd to become enthralled with the band's melancholy thrashing. Everyone in attendance cemented their love for the band when in between songs they quipped, "Have you played Big Buck Hunter down the road?" meaning Shorty's in Belltown, "For a vegetarian, I really like killing stuff." Peggy Sue are [...]
Going into First Aid Kit's show, I already knew how talented the young Söderberg sisters are, but it's just absolutely mind-blowing to see them perform live because they are just so... Read the rest on Speakerboxxx.com
Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Soderberg – better known by their stage name First Aid Kit – have never played Washington DC before, until late last month. Their first visit was thwarted by a freak accident: in October 2010 I saw Casiokids and Delphic play fun dance parties at DC9 and expected to see First Aid Kit the week after, but after a still unexplained death outside the club, the venue was shuttered for weeks and the girls were forced to cancel. Nearly a year and a half [...]
photo by Christopher Nelson Talk about a strong start to the week. We start off Monday night with one of the biggest acts to come to Seattle this year, Radiohead , performing to a sold out Key Arena. Also in town, Band of Skulls and We Are Augustines are at Neptune Theatre, while Andrew Bird is at the Paramount Theatre, and Codeine is at the Sunset. On Tuesday night, Miike Snow and Penguin Prison are at the Paramount, Explosions In The Sky [...]
First Aid Kit - Emmylou Sweden's First Aid Kit played a flawless set Monday evening at the Paradise Rock Club in support of their sophomore album The Lion's Roar . For young sisters - Johanna is 22 and Klara is 19 - who got their start from a YouTube cover of a Fleet Foxes song, I wasn't expecting the absolutely polished stage presence and excellent performances that they brought to the Paradise. But from the moment they stepped onto the stage in their flowing 70s-inspired dresses, they had my and the entire audience's rapt attention. [...]
The Swedish Sisters that compose the indie/Americana duo First Aid Kit hit Union Transfer Saturday night March 31st, and they absolutely blew me away. Klara and Johanna Soderberg shared a bill with English trio Peggy Sue, and it was a perfect match. Peggy Sue’s riffy, electric blues-rock was a well-chosen precursor to First Aid Kit’s strummy folk tunes laden with exquisite harmony. Their style is somewhat akin to Horse Feathers, Joanna Newsom and Bright Eyes. Hints of Joni Mitchell peak through as well, especially in some of the songs from their latest record, The Lion’s Roar , released in January [...]

First Aid Kit - Emmylou Sweden's First Aid Kit are stopping by Boston tonight and will play the Paradise in support of their latest album The Lion's Roar . The sisters, who have been accumulating well-deserved praise and new fans, have put together a sophomore album that sounds like it is straight out of the 1970s folk scene. One listen to Emmylou and you'll know what I mean. The show was originally slated for Brighton Music Hall, but due to popular demand, was moved to the Paradise. Brighton, England based Peggy [...]
Photo Credit: Karp Funny how playing a gig at Webster Hall turns you into a rockstar. I don’t necessarily mean that it brings fame and fortune (although if you look at the roster of musicians who debuted there throughout the venue’s 125 year history, that seems to be a valid point), but bands like to rock at Webster Hall - they like to blast the room with sound, turning every performance into some semblance of a blazing rock concert. The fact that most fans are crammed [...]
Singer/guitarists Katy and Rosa along with drummer Olly recorded Acrobats in Bristol with producer John Parish, best known for his work with PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse and EELS. The band took a different tack for the new record, most notably by plugging in their instruments—the new album contains only one acoustic guitar. This sonic change came [...]
