Life Is Beautiful Day 3- Review and Interviews

posted October 31st, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, Festivals, General Interest, Interviews, Live Show Reviews | 0

2014 Life Is Beautiful Festival - Day 3

After hitting hard for two straight days via Kanye, Lionel, Questlove, Outkast etc, Sunday’s Life Is Beautiful fest lineup provided a fitting end and tied an electro pop, hip-hop, soul and rock bow on an intensely fun weekend. Beginning my afternoon (yay for sleeping late) by connecting with Liz and Louie of Holychild after their set, we chatted about their crazy year, their working chemistry, dancing on tables as a toddler and going to Rolling Stones concerts at five years old (guess who did what?). Clearly this early start would provide a profound influence on what was to come for the pair.

Outkast-Life-is-Beautiful-StraightFromTheA-2

Fresh off the Kanye experience the night before, I regrouped and returned for Day 2 of The Life Is Beautiful fest in the afternoon to resume my eating, watching and listening festivities. This day’s insane lineup featured some of my favorite high energy acts and I knew lots of dancing would be in my future.Starting the day off with Fitz and The Tantrums, I next ventured to The Huntridge stage to chat with DJ Cassidy.

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 54

posted October 29th, 2014 by CharlesMartel | Filed under: Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | 0

In an earlier post I spoke about great albums. Well, if there are great albums which generate great songs, then there ought to be albums which have more than one track on this list. There are tracks from 688 albums on the list plus 127 singles, 15 EP’s, one demo and one unreleased track (all of the non-album tracks have not been released on anything other than a compilation album). Most albums have only one entry but 85 albums have two entries, 23 with three and three with four entries. But here are the top albums with the most tracks on this list –

Fischer-Z – “Red Skies over Paradise” (eight tracks)
The Waterboys – “This Is the Sea” (six tracks)

There are four albums with five entries: Meat Loaf – “Bat out of Hell”; Catherine Wheel – “Chrome”; Led Zeppelin – “Led Zeppelin III”; and The Chameleons – “Script of the Bridge”

Now these are among the truly great albums in my collection.

Into the top twenty and only five tracks posted each week going forward. I will try to find a video for each.

Life Is Beautiful Day 1- Review and Interviews

As I sit overlooking the mountains behind Las Vegas with a coffee cup Carrie Bradshaw would describe as “the size of my head”, it’s time to discuss all I touched, tasted and saw at this weekend’s ‘Life Is Beautiful’ festival. Since there was so much to process, I’ll break up my recaps so peep Day 2 and Day 3 soon. Returning to cover this crazy fun event for my second year in a row, the fest expanded to three days and brought together 70 acts, renowned chefs and key business and political leaders from around the world. Impressed by my experience last year, I initially wondered several things:
• Would the stage locations be the same?
• Did the fest take on too much too soon?
• Would the crowds be so big, they’d be unwieldy?
• Which type of food would be my fav throughout the weekend?
• Would I get a chance to watch all my must-see acts?

In Vegas for the weekend’s “Life Is Beautiful” extravaganza, my extra day’s stay awarded me another extravaganza and a sneak peek of all three Rock in Rio USA’s “Rock Streets” (Rock Street UK, USA and Brazil) within Vegas’ “City of Rock”, a brand new venue being built for two weekends of rock, soul and pop May 8-9 and May 15-16,2015. Holding successful festivals in Brazil and Portugal, Rock in Rio partnered with MGM, Cirque Du Soleil and Ron Burkle to bring the U.S. a taste of these global events. In celebration of Rock in Rio’s 30th anniversary, this new “city” on the northern end of the Strip will be able to hold over 85,000 concertgoers a day and six viewing stages with a zip line. Each Rock Street within the “city” will feature restaurants, shops and cultural street performers from all over the world.

posted October 27th, 2014 by Brian Rutherford | Filed under: Music News, Press Release Roundup | 0

Music journalists get hit with a steady helping of press releases every day. For the music fan without that kind of sensory overload, a lot of music news can pass by without being seen. Every Monday, I will weed through and compile a list of some of the most intriguing press releases to come across my virtual desk.

Interview: Kimbra

As I prep for more upcoming travel, it’s not shocking music is always a must-have. U2’s cloud delivered ‘Songs of Innocence’? Uh no. Grammy-winning New Zealand artist Kimbra’s ‘Vows’ and her latest, ‘The Golden Echo’? Yes, please. Since I first saw her mesmerizing live version of ‘Plain Gold Ring’, I felt a kindred left-field thinking spirit. Playing in the pop sandbox with bold visuals, jazz, musical theatre, electro, hip-hop, new wave and soul influences, this girl was different. Catching her live with Foster The People, where she displayed her sweet personality in a flowing rainbow kimono, sealed the fandom deal.

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 53

posted October 22nd, 2014 by CharlesMartel | Filed under: Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | 0

At this point, it may be worthwhile taking a look back (and forward anticipating the tracks to come) to see what genres of music are most heavily represented. This will be the first of such reviews as we count down towards my top all time track. Below then is an account of the top ten most common genres found in the list. (By the way, the genres are my interpretation).

Post-punk/Goth – 112
Jangle Pop – 105
Hard Rock – 89
Alternative/Indie – 84
Classical – 54
Pop – 53
Pop Rock – 45
Punk – 45
New Wave – 43
Shoegaze – 41

It should hardly come as a surprise to discover that the genres which dominated the seventies and the eighties are at the top of the pile: and for those who have seen my reviews, post-punk, jangle-pop and shoegaze are heavily represented.

Top thirty now.
