We recently reviewed BeThisBell’s upcoming album We Are The Gods! and scored an interview with the group’s founding member and frontperson, Beth.
One-of-a-kind edgy sound is exactly what you can expect from BeTh isBell. Forget about your usual music preferences and check out this band and their album We Are The Gods!. The fact that the band’s frontperson is a transgender woman gives them further appeal, in my opinion, because this makes them a truly unique … [Read more...]
A keruffle broke out on t’internet a couple of months ago over Georgian operatic soprano, Tamar Iveri, who made a notoriously offensive homophobic outburst on her personal Facebook page last summer. Could her subsequent apology show a shift toward a less homophobic operatic world?
LP stands for Laura Pergolizzi and she is the front woman for a great band of the same initials that seriously deserve more air time. Honestly I feel a little bit of a connection to this singer because people often think she’s a guy too! She has uncontrollable long curly hair that seems to suit her unpredictable music style.
Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless invites us to look inside her view of the world in the bands latest music video for the song Messed up World (F’d up World). It’s a world where women are exploited to sell records, as well as everything else.
The L Project are set to release their second charity single We’re All Human on the 4th of May and are hoping that it will be just as successful as their previous song It Does Get Better which made number 11 in the official UK Indie charts in 2012.

With 12 previous CDs under her belt, it’s now becoming a regular thing to see a new one from the now 40-something diminutive Aussie every couple of years. With a highly positive public image, having survived a cancer bout, gone through a couple of difficult relationships and renewed her loyal gay fan base with a return to the iconic Sydney Lesbian and Gay Mardi Gras festival (only her sister Danni, can match her number of appearances at the same event), Kylie now returns to her pop roots after a delightful acoustic album a couple of years ago (“Better the devil you know” as a swing number was especially fun).
Jessica Cornish (stage-named ‘Jessie J’) has been known to rock the pop charts with her top 20’s hits. Her music is flavored with R&B and hip hop influences that echo through catchy baselines and upbeat lyrics, and though she has produced only two albums, both have skyrocketed to the top hits list in the UK in only a matter of weeks after their respective releases.
Wallis Bird’s latest single ‘Hardly hardly’ is released today fuelling anticipation for her eagerly awaited fourth studio album titled ‘Architect’ set for release on the 11th of April.

Lucy Spraggan is not your average singer-songwriter. She skillfully makes storytelling a part of her song writing and combines it with her own unique blend of wit put to the tune of her musical companion, her guitar.
Talented young artist Sonali’s second EP titled ‘Wake Up’ was my ‘sit down and revel in the music’ album today, and I wasn’t expecting what drifted gently into my ears, charming me completely with its beautiful siren-song quality. I expected something very ‘general pop’ with catchy hooks but little depth, yet what greeted my ears threw me in the best way.
