"…Imagine a few friends sitting around and trying to find really weird sounds to include on a mix tape and you have Alex Ross-Iver's "Best 2001-2005" album. This album seems to sample every weird beat line and synthesizer tone known to man…. Listening to the entire album, I don't think I heard Ross-Iver's actual voice once. He used vocal distortion on almost every song, mixing in bits of house and techno aspects. A bright note, "Permanent Cooky Loves U" sums up this entire album with a really cool baseline, cool techno aspects and a great beat… but then comes the primal singing of Cro-Magnon man… In summing everything up, I am still having a hard time deciding whether Ross-Iver is ahead of his time or has just tried too many drugs… " – Tim Williams/Music-Reviewer.com

Latest REVIEWs - www.UKTop40Charts.com Magazine:




If you haven't heard it already, consider Alex Ross-Iver's "1998-2002

Crazy Songs Mixtape"
Lo-Fi Remaster/Edit required listening for the

electronic music aficionado. These re-releases and previously

unreleased works provide the public with a wide-ranging view of

Ross-Iver's work during the 1990s, and chronicle his outstanding

evolution from fledgling songwriter to one of the world's most

inventive and eccentric recording artists working today.



In "Duplicity" and "Yellow One", the artist weaves together chopped up
and transformed vocal lines over a sensual percussion section, that
while initially seem to work in utter contradiction, create what might

only be called instant nostalgia, perfect for 3 a.m. contemplation

over an open bottle of cheap wine, or a long distance train ride.

You'll hear it too... just give it a listen.



This is what defines Alex's genius -his inexhaustible talent for

combining the apparently irreconcilable as a means of creating new

spaces of musical expression-- and this collection is possibly

clearest demonstration of his gift of any his albums. From the Beck

influenced heroism of "To Grind- Not to Cut", to the blissful zombie

chorus in "Touch the Screen and Fly", the album is an exercise in

dialectical extremes, good enough for any graduate level philosophy

class.



This is not to understate the fact that Alex Ross-Iver's music is

endless fun. Listening to the music makes you just like the guy. There

is something of a Lou Reed or David Bowie quality in these works. The

music seems to be telling the world not to take itself too seriously.

The playfulness, curiosity, and even optimism in this collection speak

to Ross-Iver's good-natured quirkiness.

"Best of 2001-2005" Album REVIEWS:

"...If there is one word to accurately describe Alex Ross-Iver, it is busy. This individual has cut over 500 tracks since ey got into the music scene at the age of five, and this "greatest hits" collection sports 27 separate tracks. However, just because someone has 500 tracks to their name does not necessarily mean that any of the tracks are particularly exciting. A sterling case of that concerns Steve Lieberman, who is up to eir 11th or so full length, and only can claim an album’s worth of strong tracks throughout eir career. Unlike Lieberman or Mizar, Alex Ross-Iver has a very high set of production values that start off tracks like "Wacky Jacky"... This does not change in subsequent tracks, and by the time tracks like "Latin" hit listeners, one can almost hear a cohesive album being created. This sound is something that is bolstered with each following track, even as Alex moves between different styles , tempos, and instruments used. The one act that immediately reminds me of what Alex Ross-Iver does on this best of CD has to be Wired All Wrong, which is an act that had a member of "God Lives Underwater" in it. Ross-Iver is able to jump through a number of different styles throughout the entirety of this disc, and it never feels as if ey is trying to throw crap on a wall and sees what sticks. "Will I Be The Best in Berklee" is one of the strongest tracks on the disc, as it brings Alex Ross-Iver into a very eighties type of electronic rock, almost as if Nine Inch Nails mated with Depeche Mode.The pseudo-soul sound of Ross-Iver comes back heavily during "Cin! Find Me A Small Car!". This track also changes up the output of Ross-Iver by having the vocals sound as if they have been screwed and chopped. I am not familiar with what Ross-Iver has done in the past beyond the tracks culled from eir previous works on this album, but this CD sounds as good of a place to go to learn about Ross-Iver than anything. Even though the tracks are all odd when one compares them to the rest of popular music, there is a lot here than individuals can find that they can love about Ross-Iver. Part Wendy Carlos, part Berry White, Ross-Iver has a number of tricks up eir sleeve to properly get fans to eat out of eir pocket.

Musical experimentation has been at the heart of dance music since its conception. Unfortunately, though, so has the trend for over-production. However, in this refreshingly diverse compilation, artists from around the world take elements from different musical cultures to create original, high quality tracks that stay true to the instruments they represent. The overall result is raw and organic and makes the perfect warm up to any festival this summer.

Taking their cue from 90's indie with amps set to 11 and fuzz added on top of the mix. Not afraid to rock it heavy, SP keep the feeling raw and unforced as smart guitar lines complement androgynous vocals. Pompous-free attitude exudes from these deftly performed songs that in lesser hands could have turned into average radio rock, God forbid. Oh, the mellow tracks have some spunk as well (listen: Common Reactor).

"Butterfly" - KElli Ali

 

click to Download: KELLI ALI Butterfly !

Butterfly is a Limited Edition acoustic album containing 10 songs Including the brand new ‘Butterfly', ‘Throw it to The Dogs', an acoustic versions of ‘Wings in Motion' from Tigermouth and a cover of ‘Willow's Song' from ‘The Wicker Man' soundtrack as well as reworked songs from the Rocking Horse album.

WeirdMusic.net Magazine - Butterfly CD Review:

...    Aptly named  Butterfly , Kelli Ali's fifth and all-acoustic album
departs considerably from her previous work. Her music has undergone a
metamorphosis, so to speak, since her days with the  Sneaker Pimps ,
culminating in this landmark record, which contains both new songs and
new versions of previously released songs dating back to  Becoming X
(1997).
   The medieval harmonies and folk-influenced sounds on these tracks as
well as the wry and often tragic lyrics capture the imagination,
evoking images of far-off lands and fairy-tales. Backing Ali's
enchanting vocals are the winsome fluttering of flutes (Jane South),
the subtle bowing of cello and violin (Alex Beaumont and Stef
Pilcher), and the gentle finger picking of guitars (Pete Shoulder).
This line-up of acoustic instruments creates a delicate tapestry of
sound that is remarkably versatile - the instruments blend to capture
moods of helplessness, isolation, and frailty in tracks like Butterfly  and  Throw It To The Dogs , but also work to complement perfectly a sense of levity, in  Urique , in all, producing
interweaving melodies of raw and utterly haunting beauty (see  Willows
Song
,  Wings in Motion )...

Butterfly Album Official Release


In November 2008, Kelli Ali brought us her beautiful third solo album, Rocking Horse which was produced by composer Max Richter.

Kelli's companion piece, acoustic album ‘Butterfly' is a charming collection of delicate renditions of her songs old and new.

Acoustic guitar and flutes flutter daintily between cello and violin and Kelli's unique, pure voice to interpret songs from her Rocking Horse album as well as new songs such as title track ‘Butterfly' and a haunting original cover version of ‘Willow's Song' from the cult classic film soundtrack ‘The Wicker Man'.

At the heart of the record is the simplicity and transformation that songs go through when being interpreted for the live acoustic stage.
Lovers of Kelli's Rocking Horse album and her live performance will no doubt revel in the simple beauty of Butterfly, which is in many ways a development of Kelli's relationship with her band, and live audience.

Listeners of Kelli Ali should not miss this opportunity to buy the Butterfly album directly from Kelli. This album is Kelli's first independent release and is only available as a physical CD from the KelliAli.com shop and myspace.com/kelliali page.

The album comes in a beautifully artworked digi pack.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - BIO

 

Following closely in the footsteps of The Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks are yet another hugely talented young scottish band added to the FatCat roster. The 4-piece came to our attention when listening to some of the friends on the Frightened Rabbit Myspace page. Though recent months has seen the band tour the UK with their aforementioned friends, the four preceding years have consisted of local gigs in and around Glasgow and Edinburgh, allowing WWPJ to find their sound and hone their live performance.

Assembled in Edinburgh as high school friends in 2003, their first ever gig saw them winning their school's battle of the bands competition. Proceeding shows were after school performances around the city of Edinburgh which were well attended and fuelled the band with a hunger and ambition. If the nascent WWPJ aural template embraced light-footed compositions – few effects pedals, traditional song structures, clear-cut guitars - succeeding years have seen WWPJ soar aural heights and mine emotional depths in every sense: the band you will encounter now are a cacophonous tour de force: louder, wilder, avidly literate; fiercely melodic, yet eagerly restrained. Lyrics and vocal melodies come courtesy of Adam Thompson, everything else arises from the full group; Adam Thompson (Guitar/Vocals), Michael Palmer (Guitar), Sean Smith (Bass) and Darren Lackie (Drums).

Before even releasing a single, WWPJ have laid claim to some recent successes which bode well for the future of the band. A well recorded three-track demo was circulated and managed to pick up a KEXP track of the day over the pond, and plays on national stations in the UK were popping up on XFM, BBC and Q radio. Before the announcement of WWPJ signing to FatCat Records, a strong hint was sitting on the shelves across the UK in the form of inclusion on a recent FatCat sampler, mounted onto Plan B magazine.

A tour through September 2008 as main support for Frightened Rabbit garnered some great reviews for WWPJ. This being their first jaunt into England, healthy crowds arrived early on each evening due to the huge buzz in Scotland now filtering down south of the border. You could loosely pin some reference points onto WWPJ; the vocals reminiscent of Morrisy or Paul Banks (Interpol), clever guitar interplay similar to something you'd hear on a Billy Mahonie track, dynamically you could compare them to Mogwai, and generally Futureheads/Hot Club De Paris/Postcard/Fire Engine are all good markers.

Having received amazing critical support for ‘These Four Walls' and two already-released singles from the album (‘Quiet Little Voices' and ‘Roll Up Your Sleeves'), as well as some high profile festival sets and an ecstatically-received main support set at Frightened Rabbit's Scala show in London in April '09, the year has already been a busy one for We Were Promised Jetpacks.

The band will embark on a US tour with labelmates Frightened Rabbit, Brakes and The Twilight Sad in autumn, shortly before a month-long set of UK dates.

“… My Dinosaur Life , on which the band strikes a radio-ready balance between mayhem and melody, may well trigger their long-awaited breakthrough.”

Tower of Power, those super slick funk/soul/R&B all stars hailing from Oakland, California, usher in their 40th anniversary with yet another winning album. Every cut delivers hip and electrified re-imaginings of soul favorites from artists like Arethra Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Billy Paul, and James Brown. Larry Braggs kicks it off with blazing hot vocal work in "You met your match", whose unquestionable musicianship might be enough for Stevie himself to admit that he has. The second track, "I thank you" keeps it square in the pocket with the rhythms of David Garibaldi, whose linear drumming wizardry, along with hands down the best horn section in soul history, backs one of the most iconic voices of our time, Tom Jones. Other appearances include, Joss Stone, with "It takes two" Sam Moore, on "Mr. Pitiful", and Huey Lewis delivering a down and dirty performance of "634-5789".
