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.

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: Helado Negro

Living as a bilingual and bicultural Latina naturally presents a constant theme of duality. The concept of not quite fitting into a neatly checked box of “What Are You?” or “¿Quíen es?” throughout child and adulthood, currently remains a daily reality. Ecuadorian-American musician Helado Negro knows this all too well and explores this idea in his latest effort ‘Double Youth’. Blurring several genres and featured on iTunes and NPR, this Miami raised, Brooklyn based artist’s worked with the likes of Devendra Banhart, Prefuse 73, Wilco’s Mikael Jorgensen, and Julianna Barwick. Spending his fall touring with Son Lux and Sinkane, he’s been described as creating “a sonic landscape that reflects 21st-century Latin America”.

Nick Howard and Hannah Trigwell: Live @ The Rocket, Milan

Nick Howard

On October 6th, I witnessed Hannah Trigwell and Nick Howard play in Milan, Italy at The Rocket. Monday night is not exactly the perfect day for a gig and lots of people who don’t live near Milan unfortunately missed an amazing live set. On YouTube, you appreciate how talented they are, but seeing them playing in front of you, it’s a completely different thing.

2014′s A3C Fest: Review and Interviews

With the Rock The Bells hip-hop festival MIA this year, I initially moped. Where else could I hear hip-hop music from rising artists, network with established producers and other music biz professionals and get further schooled on hip-hop culture in one spot? Put onto the A3C (All Three Coasts) Fest, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, through some dope artists I follow online, I perked up and made the trek to ATL to see for myself if it lived up to the hype.

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: part 52

posted October 15th, 2014 by CharlesMartel | Filed under: Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | 0

Should you buy an album because, even though you do not much care for it, it is one of those albums you feel you have to have? I do not have in my collection either “The Velvet Underground and Nico” or “Dark Side of the Moon” despite these being probably in the top ten of many reputable lists of greatest albums of all time. I do not have them because I do not like them. That simple. In truth, there is too much music I haven’t heard which I might like to waste time trying to get to like albums I have heard and don’t like and too many albums I do like and want to listen to more frequently. Yes, sometimes albums grow on you so first impressions are not always 100% accurate but as a general rule I do not consider it worthwhile buying albums I do not like.

This is beginning to sound like a seventies chart countdown on Radio 1, “and now the top 40 chart”

Interview: Sanctuary’s Warrel Dane and Lenny Rutledge

Being a diverse music listening fan, there’s nothing better than being able to hop from one piece to another and appreciate good music regardless of genre. When great singles drop from an upcoming album, they draw you in and you anticipate the album’s release with bated breath. Seattle legendary metal band, Sanctuary’s “Frozen”, off their long awaited reunion record and return to the metal landscape, ‘The Year The Sun Died’ releasing today, did just that.
