Preview The Swell Season’s Album ‘Strict Joy’ on NPR

October 18, 2009 Leave a comment

Well, I recently posted on how you can download ‘In These Arms’ by The Swell Season for FREE. Well, The Swell Season are releasing their new album on October 27, and in the meantime, we can all listen to the ENTIRE ALBUM which is streaming on NPR.

… Then came 2007’s low-budget indie musical Once, in which Hansard and young Czech singer Marketa Irglova starred as struggling musicians who strike up a tentative relationship in Dublin. The pair became a couple in real life, and as the film took off, they toured the world to support Once and its best-selling soundtrack. In early 2008, they even won an Academy Award for the movie’s beautiful signature song, “Falling Slowly.”

Hansard and Irglova have split up amicably, but they maintain a fruitful professional relationship. Recording as The Swell Season, they’ve recorded a lush, lovely, heartfelt gem in the new Strict Joy, on which they examine a tumultuous relationship over a mostly calm bed of acoustic guitars, pianos and strings. You can hear Strict Joy in its entirety on this page for the two weeks leading up to its Oct. 27 release.

I haven’t had a chance to listen yet, but I’m looking forward to setting time aside to do just that. I just love their heartmelting love-song “In These Arms’ so I have a feeling I’ll be liking a few more songs from the album.

X-Factor Twins – John and Edward – Sing Britney Spears’ ‘Oops I Did It Again’

OMG – I HAVE NO WORDS. No, really – Okay, the twins are wee little cutesies. BUT.

I don’t know where to start. How about I start with ‘hilariously atrocious’ and go on from there??? Simon said it best – ‘weirdly entertaining’.

ETA : Okay, Details magazine e-mailed me and gave me permission to use some quotes and gave me some pictures to use. Yay, thanks Details Mag!

** Details will be running Adam’s faves on their blog for this month: Fave Eight (Jesus Christ Superstar), Fave Seven (MAC eye kohl), Fave Six (Ketel One martini), Fave Five (5-hour Energy), Fave Four (X-Men), Fave Three (Durex) + 2(x)ist underwear, Fave Two Coffee and an omelet, any time of day, and Fave One Saint Felix in West Hollywood. **

Quotes from the article:

On kissing women: “I am gay, but I like kissing women sometimes. Women are pretty. It doesn’t mean I’m necessarily sleeping with them.”

On entertaining: “It’s all fantasy – that’s what entertainment is. I’m here to entertain you, and if my sexuality is apparent and you respond to it, and you’re attracted to it, then great, I’m doing my job.”

His American Idol past: “There’s a feeling of entitlement [with the fans] because they voted to get us where we are. But you know what? I am responsible for what I created on the show – you voted for what I created, and thank you, but I created it, you didn’t.”

Preview ‘Never Knew I Needed’ by Ne-Yo from “The Princess and the Frog” OST

October 18, 2009 Leave a comment

So Disney picked Ne-Yo’s ‘Never Knew I Needed’ as the lead single for “The Princess and the Frog” OST. It’s a gorgeous song from Ne-Yo even if it’s a little overwrought and schmaltzy I guess. What do you think? Are you getting the soundtrack?
