Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 58

posted November 26th, 2014 by CharlesMartel | Filed under: Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | 0

So here it is, my number one track of all time. This song has everything – great melody, passionate vocals, a vivid link with a time and a place and the ability to provoke a strong emotional response in me. The song describes how a man confronts the woman who caused him to be “taken down” (sent to prison I presume). He tricks his way into her dressing room, catches her unaware, and then tells her that “it is not worth hurting you”. The impassioned vocal performance and the frenzied guitar work superbly convey the contempt of the man and the fear of the woman respectively. It is revenge served up ice cold.

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.

The Decemberists

From ‘Acid Rap’ to ‘Back In The Tall Grass’, #30DaysinLA Parties On

posted November 23rd, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Live Show Reviews, Music News | 0


Continuing the phenom live music run in the City of Angels provided to us spoiled fans by Red Bull’s #30DaysinLA, I kept the month going, attending two shows in the past week. Both were sold out and featured pumped lyric singing crowds. Starting off with Chance The Rapper, Azizi Gibson and Kamandi on The Strip at House of Blues last weekend, the whipping Santa Ana winds blew in hip-hop lovers from near and far. NZ artist/producer Kamandi kicked off the night and joined Azizi Gibson later on, who injected some humor into his set. I connected with Azizi in 2013 to chat about his international background and his connection to Flying Lotus , eventually signing to Brainfeeder. The crowd next greeted headliner Chitown star Chance The Rapper, whose profile rose astronomically with the release of his mixtape, ‘Acid Rap’, with a roar. Sporting a familiar Sox hat, which Angelenos know very well from 90’s Dre/Cube days, he fully engaged the audience who jumped, clapped and sang/rapped along with every word. Making the “juice” sweeter, Big Sean’s surprise appearance added to the roster of ridic surprise guests rolling through to show love.

Interview: Emerson Windy

posted November 20th, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, General Interest, Interviews | 0


As we roll (pun intended) to the end of 2014, it’s inevitable to begin “Album Of The Year” discussions. One such album potentially in that convo is Emerson Windy’s debut ‘Herojuana’. A rising producer in his own right, working with Snoop, Waka Flocka Flame and Three6 Mafia, he left the boards and stepped to the mic for his first album with an all-star team in tow. It’s def not every day a MC assembles award-winning producers and artists like Timbaland, !llmind, Mike Will Made It, DJ Mustard, Sonny Digital, Pusha T, Lil Wayne, and Raekwon. Obtaining over 14 million views in a week on his controversial “Peace Pipe” video and designing a 420 scented scratch-n-sniff CD also added to the building hype.

Interview: Gaslight Anthem and Bayside

Gaslight Anthem live

On the 10th of November, we met Gaslight Anthem and Bayside when they were about to play their Italian concert during their European tour. We luckily had the chance to talk with Alex Rosamilia from Gaslight Anthem and with Anthony Raneri from Bayside. The concert was one of the most amazing concerts of the last few months with lots of people crowd surfing, lots of people really enjoying the music and the moment, lots of people without their recording devices, just singing and dancing to the music. I witnessed how much Gaslight Anthem are loved here in Italy and happily saw the reaction reaction the audience had had during Bayside’s show: everyone wished they could have been playing more! It was a pleasure getting to know them better.

19th November 2014 – Part 57

So, which artists have the most entries on this list? There are 604 separate artists (or composers) on the list. Of these, there are 97 artists with two entries, 31 with three, 18 with four, 11 with five and five with six entries. However, it may surprise you to find some of the inclusions and, more likely, some of the omissions among the more prolific bands in the list. Here are those artists which (will) have the largest number of tracks included –

Led Zeppelin – 18
The Rolling Stones – 16
Fischer-Z – 12
The Waterboys – 9
The Chameleons – 8
The Cure – 8
Lloyd Cole & the Commotions – 8

And seven have seven entries each – The Beatles, Big Country, Catherine Wheel, David Bowie, the Kinks, Ludwig van Beethoven and the Psychedelic Furs. Incredibly, none of these are American and only one is not British – Beethoven.

And now into the top 5.

Interview: Rachael Yamagata

posted November 18th, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, Interviews, Music News | 0


For anyone perusing singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata’s bio mentioning she “named her label after a walking fish”, “got run over by a bull” and did a video “in full bunny attire” on her website, what’s not to like? Charming fans with a mix of highs and lows since her first classic release ‘Happenstance’ 10 years ago, she’s written many heartwrenching relatable songs, all the while being able to poke fun at herself live. Currently wrapping up her recent tour with opening acts Hemming and The Dove and The Wolf, celebrating the release of her debut ‘Happenstance’ and previewing songs from her Pledge Music funded next album, it’s been a good year.

When viewing the jammed schedule for Red Bull Sound Select’s #30DaysinLA, I circled Lucky Day 13 as this lineup featured three acts too good to pass up. Others agreed as it sold out immediately once tix went onsale, requiring a change in venue. In Vegas earlier in the day for a music event, I got off the plane back in LA and headed straight to The Echoplex for a guaranteed rawkus evening of fun featuring Thurz, Mystery Skulls and Run The Jewels.

You might recall I connected with Thurz and El-P last December at a prior Red Bull event and so much transpired since then. Both released buzzworthy music (with Thurz dropping ‘Designer EP’ and El ‘RTJ2’) so we’d def hear dope new tracks. Thurz (peep him on Revolt TV this week) began the night with this new music and full live band in tow, even rocking “Tonite” with LA legend DJ Quik. Mystery Skulls kept the night moving with dance music.
