In a world’s first promotional move where the actual music video to ‘I Could Be The One’ is ten-times as better as Avicii vs. Nicky Romero’s chart-topping cheesy excursion.. Belgian producer Meridian rips into the Camembert-Original.. keeps a small bit of the annoying autotune stems alive, and puts it among a backdrop of more aurally friendly thrust and punch. Hats off to Meridian for this one. If you fancy checking out his recent vintage remix of ‘Clocks’ by Coldplay, click HERE .
Not long ago, I featured the video for Sheare's single, " Somebody Else ". Yesterday, the debut EP released, and on top of the title track, there's three other great songs to enjoy. Each track contains that grand, arena pop sound. You know, the type of epic, polished anthems that grab your ears and sweep you up within their sing-a-long choruses. It's been a staple of bands like Keane, Coldplay, and Muse for years. To put their music on the same level of those chart toppers, Sheare brought the producer Spike Stent, who has worked with the previously mentioned [...]
Guess what. If your submission mentions the producer Mike "Spike" Stent, it's going to grab my attention. Never heard of the guy, you say? You may not know the name, but I guarantee that you've heard some of his work: Keane, Muse, Coldplay, and Arcade Fire... do I need to go on? Sheare's upcoming EP has been executive produced and mixed by Spike Stent, and no surprise really, it's filled with grandiose, soul tugging songs. The video for Sheare's single, "Somebody Else", is a great starting point to get yourself acquainted with the musician's sound. The visuals take you on [...]

Lembra quando apresentamos por aqui no começo do ano o britânico Tom Odell , vencedor do Critics Choice Awards britânico e um dos principais concorrentes das irmãs Haim ao pódio do Sound of 2013 , da BBC?

That's it, I'm in love with this remix of Coldplay's Fix You . Absolutely amazing. Download: Coldplay - Fix You (Aylen Remix)
In honor of Mr. Martin's epic performance last night at MSG for The Concert for Sandy Relief, here is the newest take on his supersong Paraside. Yes, the alt-rock group's chart-topper from their fifth studio album Mylo Xyoto has been mixed and remixed since it dropped last year, but this one is special. Martin and REM's Michael Stipe team up for "Losing My Religion." 12-12-12 Concert, NYC. Modestep soothes into it, then let's it drop around 1:25. "In the night, the stormy night, she closes her eyes" - something we [...]
Injected by love and brought to the boil with new life, Aylen maintains the Original of ‘Fix You’ from Coldplay by gliding it along with gentle DIY emotion. Starting off slowly and building up to a crescendo-type outro, Coldplay fans and similar alike should be all over this like peanut butter & jam .
Texto: @christianxrojas Esta semana se cumplen 15 años desde la salida del álbum ReLoad de Metallica , uno de sus discos más feos y que se ha convertido en un cero a la izquierda de toda su carrera. Con este pretexto, recordamos que James Hetfield y compañía no son los únicos que convocan a millones de fans aún con un gigante fail en su discografía (o varios). A continuación, presentamos una lista con cinco álbumes espantosos de bandas que son capaces de llenar arenas enormes o estadios monumentales. Se trata de [...]

Recently, America has seen an influx of British pop artists propping up the top ten spots of the charts. This musical invasion by the Brits now contributes to 1/8 of all album sales. Many explanations have been bounced around trying to speculate the reason for the sudden surge of interest in British bands, from the abundance of UK talent shows to the accessibility the Internet provides for musicians and groups. Whatever the cause, here is a collection of the most impressive British artists and the awards for which we may see some nominations this year. [...]
Robbie Williams doesn't seem to care that his latest hit, 'Candy', has been banned from BBC's Radio One, but he did joke that if they play Coldplay or Madonna, he's gonna head down to their headquarters and break their legs. Yesterday (November 5), a spokesperson for Radio 1 explained it's not a matter of age, that the song is dirty or anything, but rather a matter of relevance for their audience: "Radio 1 see it not as a question of age, but of relevance. They think there are acts more appropriate to their target [...]

Coldplay were the big show at the closing ceremonies for the Paralympics. They brought Rihanna and Jay-Z along to help out. Check the minute clip of Hov spitting a new verse at the end of the Coldplay hit "Paradise". Good way to close the show.

Earlier this week, Maxïmo Park unleashed their fourth full length album, The National Health (here in the US). Maxïmo Park's biggest talent seems to be taking the styles of other bands and merging them together to form a unique sound of their own. Throughout The National Health, you'll hear some influences of Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs, Kasabian, a bit of Keane, countless other indie rock bands, and surprisingly The Cure. I'm not saying that Maxïmo Park is stealing or copying these other bands' signature sounds. I'm just pointing out the similarities. It's a good thing that there's a band out there [...]
I can't believe how I've been exposed to so much music from Denmark since starting this blog. Seriously, last year, you could have asked me to name my favorite Danish band, and I would have said something along the lines of, "I have no clue. Wasn't Aqua, the '90s group known for the one hit wonder Barbie Girl, from somewhere in Denmark?" Now, I can roll off a pretty good list of excellent bands and musicians from that country. The latest Danish artist that I've recently been listening to is Jens-Ulrik Kleemeyer. This guy's music is phenomenal! Imagine hearing [...]
