Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin on tour in Europe with new album

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have this fantastic line off of their 2008 release PERSHING that goes: "Sorry if that's twee, it's just tomorrow's hope". I love that line so much.

This year they've released the follow up album called "Let It Sway", which they recorded with Chris Walla. They are currently on tour with it in Europe. On Monday they did a little accoustic live recording for This Is Fake DIY:

...and tonight I'm gonna see them live here in Berlin. Looking forward to that one!

NEW ALBUM & SINGLE: Carl Barât - Run With The Boys

My sister keeps asking me whether I want to do an interview with Carl Barât again when he's in town on his solo tour in November. She's a huge fan of his and all the bands he's involved in and she already accompanied me the first time I did an interview with him on the last Libertines show in Berlin. She acted as my photographer and she did a great job! Guess what her plan is... ;)

I didn't have plans of getting him in front of my microphone again because interviews with him are mostly useless for radio due to the fact that he mumbles really heavily. Plus I hadn't listened to any of his solo stuff and was a bit nonchalant. But then I actually got an email from Carl Barât's German radio plugger, asking me if I wanted to do an interview. I thought that was hilarious, explained the situation to him and we made a deal that I'll have it depend on the album. So yesterday Carl Barâts self titled solo album was in my postbox and ever since I started listening to it this morning, it's in my stereo on rotation. I love it!!! His voice is amazing. The songs are all in a singer/songwriter style but not one sounds like the other and most of them have a very strong earworm character. It might have something to do with him having had some helping hands on a few songs who go by the names of Neil Hannon (Divine Comedy) and Andrew Wyatt (Mike Snow).

So I guess it's decided. I'm going to try to get an interview with Mr. Carl Barât, so watch this space.

Here's a little teaser off of his album, the first single:

Admiral Radley Daytrotter session

Oh my god, it's been over a month since my last blog post. So sorry but I've been extremly busy at work and also moved into my own flat at the beginning of the September. Too many things to organise. But now things calmed down a bit.

So my last post was about Admiral Radley and I'm going to continue with them since Daytrotter released the Admiral Radley session last week. That session includes 4 songs off of their debut album "I Heart California" with the title track, "Red Curbs", "Ghost of Syllables" and "Ending of Me". I must admit that Jason Lytle's singing sometimes gets a little off key but if you manage to ignore that it's especially the last track that caught my attention. It's taking me back 10 years to the best Grandaddy days. Beautiful!
