Time Out Happy New Year, everyone; hope 2013 has been good to you so far and if not, geez. It's only been 36 hours or so. What the hell. We'll kick off the new year with some old faces under a new name; The New Mendicants. So new they don't even have a website or Facebook page, but if you need some background maybe look up Pernice Brothers , Teenage Fanclub , and The Sadies , and cross-reference with my writeup of last June's wonderful Joe Pernice/Norman Blake show [...]
As Mr. Milton quite astutely accents , Hollywood, FL boy/girl trio Beach Day certainly trend in nostalgia-soused doo-wop geared towards he/ she who spends entire summers with his/ her head upturned in shore. However Walking On The Streets will have anyone to have hurled the estival season away down beside the seaside furiously dislodging sand and salt water from clogged ears for its swell vocals recall those of Rose Elinor Dougall-slash-Mary Weiss whilst musically it's straight from the pen of Joe Lean-slash-Shadow Morton. Remember (Walkin' In The Sand)? Well, Walking On The Streets beats it. [...]

Track Of The Day - Good Dangers. Ok prepare for the world's longest opening sentence. Ready ? Appearing like a wistful summer breeze to metaphorically sweep the grey turbid doom laden clouds away from the unremittingly grim January skies (for at least three minutes and fifty seconds ), Good Dangers have made ‘Abagail’ available for free download as a precursor to their debut single proper which will be arriving in the next months. It’s joyful pop nugget [...]

Before releasing her second album, London singer Rose Elinor Dougall decided to give her fans a free EP with three new tracks. "The Distractions Ep" contains three demo tracks, recorded shortly after her debut album "Without Why" was released in 2010. To be honest, I didn't know Rose Elinor Dougall before receiving an e-mail with her EP. (After reading a bit about here, she's a former member of The Pipettes!) But before reading this, I didn't know what her music would sound like. My expectations were based on a picture and her name: I thought it would some lame pop. [...]
Rose, where have you been all our lives? This is the sound of January 16th, 2012. "Hanging Around" is excerpted here from Ms. Dougall's (who is a former member of Brit buzz band The Pipettes) just released "Distractions" EP. The EP's got an interesting mix of sounds of influences, particularly its blend of classic American pop and more far off shoegaze tones. So we're definitely listening now, and we're eager to hear more. To the bandcamp links: Hanging Around by Rose Elinor Dougall Rose Elinor Dougall [...]
last.fm I've been meaning to write up Without Why , the debut album from Rose Elinor Dougall , for well over a year now but for whatever reason never actually got around to it. And while normally almost year and a half on from its release is too long to give a record props, the fact that Ms Dougall is back on the radar with a new stopgap release while she wraps up work on her second album is good enough reason for me to revisit it. If her [...]
In advance of releasing her second solo album Rose Elinor Dougall has made a three track EP of some earlier demos available for free download. While apparently not representative of the new record (these demos were recorded shortly after the release of Without Why in 2010 and 'rediscovered' in December) she thought it a waste not to share them and we're all the better for it. Titled, clearly enough, The Distractions EP , the songs have, in places, an almost shoegaze feel to them and our favourite is the epic [...]
It's always lovely to hear something new from Rose Ellinor Dougall . The ex-Pipette/Mark Ronson tourmate unleashed a new 3-song EP entitled "The Distractions" on her Bandcamp yesterday, and what's more, they're yours to take for free. You don't even have to enter your email address or anything, how nice of her! These new songs mark a more guitar-based sound from her, like an extension on her excellent Smiths-esque single "Carry On" . I embed my favourite track below. Download the EP here. [...]
Rose Elinor Dougall emerges with three Without Why leftovers that sound more like fresh...
Есть несколько простых вещей, которые помогут начать год в хорошем настроении. Подведите итог года, откажитесь от проектов, которые кажутся не важными, послушайте пару хороших пластинок этого лета и, обязательно, наведите порядок дома. Так, например, Rose Elinor Dougall , записывая в декабре материал для нового альбома, нашла несколько старых песен, записанных буквально сразу после выхода «Without Why». Роузи не дала песням пылиться на полке, украсила их и упаковала в красивые видеоклипы . При этом, девушка говорит, что не стоит смотреть на этот материал, как на заготовки к новому альбому – для него у [...]
El año pasado The Pipettes regreso con un nuevo sencillo y para serles sinceros, no tengo ni la menor idea sobre si ese track formaba parte de algun nuevo material ya que desde que editaron su debut y comenzaron a cambiar de alineacion, mi interes por ese trio empezo a disminuir, esto sin mencionar el hecho de que mi integrante favorita habia decidido separarse de las demas y continuar por su propia cuenta. Algo, que en lo personal, me parece que fue lo mejor que pudo hacer Rose Elinor Dougall ya que si bien no ha logrado posicionarse dentro de [...]
Marc Ronson & The Business International's 2010 LP, Record Collection , largely flew under the mainstream music biz's radar. This is a shame and a surprise - to begin with, Ronson was the mastermind behind Amy Winehouse's success with Back To Black. He's also an objectively top-notch producer. You can see his influence on Winehouse when you compare her raw, unrefined footage to what came out of the studio: she wrote the music and the lyrics, but many argue that he was just as responsible for the retro-soul Amy Winehouse "sound" so many people fell in love [...]

Para o programa de rádio australiano Like a Version, especializado em covers, o grupo de synthpop do produtor britânico Mark Ronson , o Mark Ronson and The Business Intl. , resolveu sair completamente da sua zona de conforto e apresentar uma das grandes músicas de 2010, a psicodélica Solitude is Bliss , da banda Tame Impala . Mas como em qualquer apresentação de Ronson , os convidados especiais é que assumem os holofotes. Rose Elinor Dougall , famosa por integrar o grupo The Pipettes , assume [...]
