ArtistoftheWeek:Jenny Owen Youngs4/25/11-5/2/11

Jenny Owen Youngs, that name has been one that I have talked about since 2005. She's been a great pop/rock musician to have when I was transitioning from mainstream pop/rock music to more independent music. The public found out about this musical gem from her song, single "Fuck Was I," from her debut album, Batten the Hatches. Having her music featured on so many showtime television shows such as, WEEDS and United States of Tara. (Which gives her so much credibility because Showtime is the highest of high for television quality.)
Anyways, enough talk, time for music, here's some songs and videos to enjoy! Hope you enjoy this musician as much as I have! She's a great one to have!

ArtistoftheWeek:Jamie Lidell4/18/11-4/25/11

Jamie Lidell has such an interesting take on music. His style is a collection of soul, R&B, blues, electronic, folk, rock, and funk. At least that's what all the music critics say. Personally, I think he's just got a great sense of funk in his music. Jamie Lidell's music can appeal to many. His lyrical style is one of a romantic filled with some angst. With some songs the lyrics are a little too sad but Jamie sets up the right melody to make the song just right. Like for his song, "Where'd You Go?" there's a part where he sings, "That's why I cry!" and it fits so well with the music that it doesn't bother you or make you feel a little wimpy listening to lyrics like that. (You know if you're worried about that whole emasculating thing.) I highly recommend you to listen to Jamie Lidell if you like the combination of R&B and Funk.

ArtistoftheWeek:Do As Infinity4/11/11-4/18/11

Do As Infinity, is a band composed of two people. Tomiko Van, lead vocal and lyricist and lead guitarist Ryo Owatari. They have been in the music industry for nearly ten years now and have made memorable songs used on many Anime television shows and Japanese Commercials. They have made their mark in the Japanese industry and have brought their music up to the next level every time they release a new album.
The group was almost on the verge of breaking up in 2005 when Tomiko Van wanted to go solo with her music career but the group came back together and came back stronger than ever! Now they've released their recent album Eight this year and it went to the top of the charts and they released their great single Hand in Hand which involved the lead gutiarist sing a part in the song. A first for D.O.I!
You should check out Do As Infinity as well as their music videos they're a band to have in your collection!

ArtistoftheWeek:Ellie Goulding4/4/11-4/11/11

Ellie Goulding is a graceful light that has shared it's magic with the world.

Ellie Goulding is a singer/songwriter musician from the UK. Her music is of an electronic style with melodies and lyrics inspired by Pop. Her vocals are of a tie with heavy british accent and the feel of a pop girl. Ellie Goulding's songs are sometimes thought to be based on love but most times they are about something else.
That's what I love about Ellie Goulding. You think that her songs are about something as little as a crush or sex, but it's mostly about something more. Something bigger, something more than just about a boy and a girl.
If you haven't heard of Ellie Goulding and her amazing music and her amazing voice you should. Her music will take your mind and/or your heart to another level of understanding, another level of life. She's a siren among the group of young British Singer/Songwriters. She's one to spend your money on.
