mosaic madness.


mosaic mania is about to hit singapore in a few weeks and this years lineup
might not have the likes of jose gonzales but i have a few favorites
that really got me all excited.
when i said a few i actually meant quite a few.

go HERE to see the full lineup.

1. Múm


Múm is an experimental icelandic band
and they produce really light tender electronic beats
excellent to dream to and drift away to.

They will be performing at the concert hall on the 13th of march.

2. The Bird and the Bee


Its not the first time im mentioning about the bird and the bee
and they are a favorite here at !tashed.

If i were to spend money to watch just one band besides BSS (below)
for the mosaic fest it would definitely be them.

They have recently released a new EP one too many hearts and its absolutely delightful.

Their cover of how deep is your love is really really good.

They will be playing at the theatre studio on the 12th of march.

3. Fujiya & Miyagi


If you are goin into an electronic rage and madness,
This is where you should be headed to.

I will promise you will walk away from their performance chanting
fujiya miyagi, fujiya miyagi…..

Oh and they aren’t japanese but from the UK. Please watch them.
They will be performing on the 14th of march at the theatre studio.

4. Broken Social scene


What Broken Social Scene has done for indie, i cant even begin to explain.

They are not called a supergroup for nothing.
They are a collective, not just a band
and most of their members(19!) have their own personal projects.

Most notably, leslie feist who was nominated for a grammy recently-best new artist
(and lost to a crack head named amy winehouse)

They have produced so much its unbelievable.

catch them at the concert hall on the 9th of march.

whenever i hear the bird and the bee they remind me a
lil bit of feist/the hush sound/jenny lewis and the lalala band kind.a friend of mine coined that term and i dont know how to describe it but yeah it really hits the spot.the albums self-titled and its really really good for afternoons and wishin for sunshine.
the bird refers to greg kurstin and the bee is inara george.remember fools in love?yup its her.greg has helped in producing albums for the likes of lily allen,beck,flaming lips and more so you can expect something outta him.

the bird and the beei’m a broken heart
the bird and the beei hate camera (rec’d)

good vibes is all about you

so we went to good vibrations.and it was one hell of a party.
really really really good vibes.
cicada melted me and cut copy absolutely blew us away.
the electro ran through our veins and we danced like we belonged.
cicada was already in constant rotation but now cut copys all time.
our hearts were on fire and they definitely reached out to us that night.
then the beastie boys showed and they were the beastie boys.
intergalactic came and we went with no sleep till was nuts..

so heres some stuff we heard at good vibes.

cut copys from melbourne, australia and we didnt know what to expect but
im pretty sure everyone who went agreed they were insane.
hearts on fire and time stands still are from their album bright like neon lights.
stage presence was 5 outta 5.

icelandic vocalist heidrun björnsdottir(formerly from gus gus)
