Tom Keifer – The Flower Song (2013)

tomKeiferCinderella’s Tom Keifer is releasing his first ever solo album later this year. I for one are extremely excited by the prospect – it has been way too long since any new material from the Cinderella camp has been released.

This week the first fruit of his labours has surfaced with the release of ‘The Flower Song’. The mainly acoustic track, is reminiscent of the Heartbreak Station album, but also has more than a little tinge of 70’s Rod Stewart / The Faces about it. Continue reading

Biffy Clyro – Black Chandelier (2012)

Biffy Clyro are back!

Following the album track release of ‘Stingin’ Belle’ earlier in the year the first single proper got played on BBC Radio 1 last night.

Starting with a ‘drip-drip, drip-drip’ vocal the song is instantly recognisable as Biffy Clyro. Once Simon Neil’s vocal starts you are back in a familiar territory as if they’ve never been away. Understated this track slowly builds to a chorus which I guarantee you’ll be singing along to after only a few listens.

Around about the three-minute mark we are treated to a lovely little “rock out” interlude before the melody of the track returns for the big finish.

Based on this track, with a sold out UK tour already scheduled for May next year, and the album Opposites coming out in January it is very likely that 2013 is going to be the biggest year yet for this Scottish band. Today they’ve posted ‘Black Chandelier’ to their official YouTube channel. Click below to listen to the single from there now.

Limp Bizkit – City of Angels (2012)

Limp Bizkit have a new album out next January and ‘City of Angels’ is the first single from it. It’s sounding mighty different; the new hip-hop record label clearly having an influence.

Have a listen and let us know what you think. On first listen, I kinda like it!

The Rolling Stones – Doom and Gloom (2012)

2012 is the 50th Anniversary of The Rolling Stones, and to commemorate the occasion (yet another) Greatest Hits album is being released.

And like Forty Licks 10 years ago new compilation Grrr! has some new tracks, the first of which is ‘Doom and Gloom’ released this week. I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised by the track.

I am a pretty big fan of the Stones and own all their albums, have seen them live many times, and yes, yes I have bought the t-shirt too. Somehow though I just didn’t expect big things from the new material. Perhaps it was my complete feeling of “meh” when A Bigger Bang was released in 2005. That album did nothing for me.

Still, with fifty years behind them this year they have pulled a bit of a corker out of the bag with ‘Doom and Gloom’. Watch the lyric video and listen to it now. Continue reading

Fifty Years Ago Today, A Revolution Started…

Fifty years ago today, in just 2 minutes and 22 seconds the world was changed forever.

On the 5th of October 1962 a new band known as The Beatles released their debut single, “Love Me Do” and from that point forward a revolution began. Pop music had been very much manufactured and produced out of “tin pan alley”-style writing houses and with “Love Me Do” a Northern, working-class voice woke the nation’s music-loving generation to a whole new world.

The first publicly aired Lennon and McCartney original has went on (with the rest of their output) to influence and define music as we know it today across all genres and tastes. Continue reading

Aerosmith – Lover Alot (2012)

’Lover Alot’, the new single proper from Aerosmith has just been released.

It’s the first new material proper in a long time and I have to say I’m a little underwhelmed. Sadly this is just like I was underwhelmed when I heard ’Legendary Child’ the track recently dug up from Get A Grip demos and given to the G.I. Joe: Retaliation soundtrack.

Hmmm. This is a little worrying as I am a massive Aerosmith fan, owning all their albums, and witnessing many live gigs including flying around the world to see them (including a cheeky trip to Vegas).

So what is it? In truth I didn’t really like Aerosmith’s last album Just Push Play either, but I put that down to a mixture of the band being tired and perhaps needing a break, and where my musical tastes were at that point. However the hiatus came and (excusing an almost exclusively covers album) Aerosmith have not released new material in 11 years. Continue reading
