I can't make this blog entry any more exciting that is already is... Thank you Alicia for giving me SOMETHING to review. Ug. ENJOY!
Not even the King from Alicia Keys 5th album Girl on Fire
Miss Keys came from Hells Kitchen, NYC. She actually made her debut to the world at age 4 on the Cosby show in 1985. Musically she emerged in 1997 after being trained classically on the piano and valedictorian at Professional Performing Arts in New York by 16. She's written and sang Grammy award winning songs and has had a NYTimes Best Seller book in 2004. The girl will blow your mind, and yes she's on fire.
King Song from Joan of arc's self titled album
This would be this 'mathrock' band from Illinois' 17th album. Please read Wiki's quote about this ill-fated named band:
"Joan of Arc's lyrics and cover art are often intentionally misleading, humorous, or confusing. For example, the album Live in Chicago 1999 is not a live album, but a reference to the fact that the band lived in Chicago in the year 1999."
Itunes, Amazon, and even Joan of Arcs website has no record of this.... record. I found it on Allmusic.com and then was able read the track list and go from there to review. Youtube has a video of this track I picked that is beautiful and simple. I wish I could tell you more....
Symptoms from Atlas Genius' DEBUT EP Through the Glass
Said band is from Australia. They are an alternative band with a nice frontman voice and steeldrum playing. Will I be downloading? Perhaps not. I am looking forward to hearing what else they have to say.
Kings will be falling from Robin Guthrie's 5th solo album Fortune
Robin is better knows as one of the Cocteau Twins. He started his solo career in 2003 but has been recording music since 1982. This is an entire instrumental album only, and kinda repeated itself however stunning and transporting. So yes, I only picked this track to fall in the same theme with King this week.
