Whats Up Doc - Number Four - 2007 and all that kinda thing...

I am going to avoid any pretentious personal charts for the year soon to pass. Rather you can just skip back over the previous 'Whats Up Doc' posts, and if you are still awake, after the ordeal, get a feel for some of the more current music that has appealed to my ears. Among those already featured have been, Vanessa Paradis, Clare Burson, Lucy and The Teenage Monster, Siouxsie, Tegan and Sara, Radiohead, Bruce Springsteen, Babyshambles, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, The White Stripes, Pauline Croze , and plenty of others, some well known and some not so well known. So on this edition I thought I would fill in some of the gaps, of other artists and music, that has appealed this year. Afterwards I will probably remember some more, so lets just say, this is far from definitive. Neil Young's 2007 release 'Chrome Dreams II' is simply wonderful! Full of a variety of styles , it exceeded all expectations by miles. Here are a couple of examples: Links Removed - MP3 Pol

Whats Up Doc? - The Third One

Welcome to the third ' whats up doc ' musical round up. Picking out some current and earlier albums from the year, that have the full attention of the Beehive! First of all a band I am somewhat overdue featuring, The White Stripes . Jack and Meg's latest offering 'Icky Thump' released back in June, is still a 'regular play' of mine, if your a fan you will have a copy, for those uncertain check out the following couple of tracks from the album.

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss new album 'Raising Sand' has had mixed reviews, everything from album of the month to disappointing. I personally quite like it, and if you like either musicians solo work, it is well worth checking out. 02. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss - Killing The Blues 05.

Whats Up Doc? - Second Helping

Time for another bout of Whats Up Doc? Plenty of very good new music, some brand spanking new, some recent. Not long now before the record industry starts the season of inevitably dodgy repackaged compilations... So whats on my play list right now? Lets start with the new album from Siouxsie namely 'Mantaray'. If you like anything by the Banshees, or The Creatures, it's a must to check out. Have a listen to: Links Removed - MP3 Policy. Siouxsie - Into a Swan (radio edit).mp3 Official site and more info HERE . Radiohead have announced the release of a new album - 'In Rainbows', as I am sure all their fans already know. For full details go to their site HERE . Two options, one - pre-order to download the single album, you choose the amount you want to pay, and two - order the comprehensive Cd & vinyl package, that will be dispatched in December. Some of the songs from the new album were played on their tour last year. Whether they are like the finished article,

So Much New Music - If Only I Could Catch Up With The Back Catalogue!

Whats new or current in the Beehive? Lets start with The Polyphonic Spree , who released their third album 'The Fragile Army' this summer. On this album they take their unique 'spaced out choral pop' a little towards the dark side. I think they are probably a love or hate group. I like them (to be awkward). Links Removed - MP3 Policy.

Bodies Of Water remind me a little of the aforementioned, add a touch of Beach Boys harmonies, and something a little maverick, and you are almost there. All of which probably does not help - elsewhere they have been described as gospel pop, so here's a few songs to clarify.
