Ingrid Michaelson – Be Ok

Ingrid Michaelson is back with a sophomore effort.
Rolling Stone mag gave her a bad review, others scoffed at her for taking a step back from her mercurial rise.
So whats the truth?

i swear kate nash is ‘lily allen meets the streets‘.
i really hate comparing artists but this one really hits the spot.

she is indie-pop at its finest..a perfectly ‘radio-friendly’ track.
really really easy on the ears and i just know that
shes gonna be big worldwide in no time so look out for her

the brunettes

i would like to think there was a time
when ‘pop’ or the mere mention of it
was not frowned upon.
i think that time is almost back.
(in the world of !tashed at least)

if you can find anything sweeter but not corny.
subpop recently released structure and cosmetics

sugar sweet

the icicles say they are for those cold nights and warm days.
i think they mean they can be really comforting.

sounding really exuberant and youthful.
they are excellent for today.
sundays.

they did the music for the motorola krzr ad
which got everyone tapping their feet
and wondering who the hell sang the song.

joyous pop and sugar sweet it is.

boys boys boys..

from boy kill boy to the whitest boy alive
here comes the happiest of them all
the boy least likely to.

im gonna force my neices and nephews to listen to them(im serious)
girls are gonna love this band
boys are gonna go ‘twee like fuck!’ and act like they detest them.

but this band is so happy it makes everyone gay.
now wtf are you thinking its harmless childrens music we are talking about.

the boy least likely tobe gentle with me
the boy least likely toi’m glad i hitched my apple wagon to your star

[myspace]

of 2 million people watching the infamous boys dancing on treadmills and grannies dancing next to treadmills.(bloody speechless..these grannies are cooler than you.)
please watch the 2 videos.

OK GOhere it goes again (catchy catchy catchy!)

its just a joy watching 4 grown men acting like boys and old folks dancing.
who cares about the young folks??

crayon fields and children

you know the deal.
when a band plays with handclaps and triangles to go with a melodic voice,it sounds really really happy.

music which has tambourines,shakers and handclaps..always appeals to me.
that is exactly what the crayon fields sound like.
a bloody happy band.
they are classified as childrens music on itunes. hah.
they really seem to take everything good about being a child into their music.

you know where hope used to be a good thing and being happy was all that mattered…not childish,but they seem to sing in a way that children may just be the ones who see the bigger picture in life.
they are totally not self-conscious according to pple who’ve seen them live.

my dream position in a band is being that dude at the side with the shaker livin in his own world.
and i’d rather be ringo than paul.

i still want impossible things..
i’ll clap for you and you’d clap for me.

the bands from melbourne and its their first album called animal bells.a bloody good effort.
