video is not working - click link above!

Hooray, we finally made it to Coachella weekend!! I can't believe how quickly it came this year...seriously, this year is flying by! Anyway, Ill be heading down to the desert tomorrow for a little fun in the HOT SUN. I'll be stopping by the Ace Hotel after I catch my block of bands at the Outdoor Theatre. There are a ton of parties going on, so Ill be sure to tweet about how much fun I'm having!

I wanted to include this video and make a plea to the producers of Coachella about this AMAZING band. Angus & Julia Stone, a brother/sister duo from Australia should be playing this weekend, but are no where to be found on this weekend's bill. I'm sure it just had to do with scheduling conflicts, so hopefully they can make it next year. This dynamic duo is a perfect fit for the Coachella Fest. Check out a live version of their song "Big Jet Plane" off their latest release DOWN THE WAY.

Citizen Cope was a guest on Morning Becomes Eclectic last week. He was there promoting his new music. I have heard a bit of it and so far I like what I hear. I hope to check out his entire CD soon.

Album Announcement!

Due to an abundance of great songs bursting to get out 2010 will see Robyn release not one, not two, but three albums. The first, Body Talk PT 1, will be released on June 14th with the single Dancing On My Own released the same day (add to Facebook).

"I got all these great songs so why not? It’s been 5 years since "Robyn" and I didn’t want to wait with a release until they are all recorded, so I decided to start putting them out right away. I also can’t wait to play live again and this enables me to tour and record at the same time. I just want to keep making music!" Robyn

See the full tracklisting and listen to Fembot and None Of Dem on the website!

First Listen: Robyn - None Of Dem (feat. Röyksopp) >>

Head to now to listen to the second track to surface from Body Talk Pt. 1 - the Röyksopp collaboration None Of Dem!! Let everyone know what you think of it by posting your reaction video to the Gallery, then share it on Facebook and Twitter!

"I´m so curious to see what people will do to "None of dem" on the video recorder function that now is up on my site together with the song! Please go as bananas or pretentious as you like, if you like. You can also choose to just listen to the song and not let us record your reaction. But I would love it if you did!!! Thank you." Robyn

Robyn's video is live right now - here! Get recording here!


Aqualung’s Matt Hales thought he had it all figured out. In 2007, the British singer/songwriter told a London audience that he was retiring. “I’d had enough of it at that point and thought I might just be a teacher or do something else.”

However, the stellar batch of tunes that make up his new Verve album, Magnetic North, came calling and they wouldn’t take no for an answer. “The songs were like ‘Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, C’mon dad, let’s go, let’s go, let’s go,’ Hales laughs. “I’m still ever so slightly reluctant, but I don’t have any choice. I’m like the guy in the park with 12 giant puppies being pulled along; I didn’t want to come out. Well, I made these puppies so I guess I must have secretly wanted to get out there.”

Magnetic North's songs range from the impossibly upbeat and joyous Beck-like opening track “New Friend” and the exuberant “Fingertip” to the bleak sorrow of “Sundowning.”

“The common theme is mature relationships in various degrees of difficulty,” says Hales of the Verve release. “The thing that is common to all these relationships, whether they last or not, is there was a point when the other person was everything.”

Magnetic North includes many guests including Sara Bareilles on the haunting “Remember Us” and “New Friend,” as well as A Fine Frenzy’s Alison Sudol on “Time Moves Slow,” and Kelly Sweet on “Fingertip” and “Sundowning.”
