Romanticii

July 31, 2008

Calatorie cosmica (Cosmic Travel)

Soare si foc (Sun and Fire)

Cheia Fa sau Sol (Fa or Sol key)

Romanticii (The Romantics) was a romanian band formed in the 60s with different members during the years. Mircea Dragan was the leader of the group. He was lucky enough to meet the “Sah mat” band, later on “Tinara Generatie” (The Young Generation) and to record with them the album “Soare si foc”. This recordings are significantly more pleasant to the ear than the ones before “Tinara Generatie”. Mircea Dragan was also a member of “Mondial“, a famous Romanian band active since 1966.

Peace Orchestra – Shinning

July 31, 2008

I knew this song from one of the memorable trip-hop mixes from trip-hop.net, THE website for trip-hop amateurs. It’s lovely and profound in some way. Makes you think. Or not. Just chill.

If you didn’t know already (like me, for example), Peace Orchestra is the solo project of the Viennese trip-hopdub producer Peter Kruder, best known as one half of Kruder & Dorfmeister.

Juliette and The Licks – Hot Kiss

July 28, 2008

Juliette and the Licks is an American rock band led by actress Juliette Lewis. She is one of my favorite women artists.
She is talented, energetic, she has a voice to kill and the looks to match it!
Juliette and the Licks released their first EP Like a Bolt of Lightning, in 2004, which was shortly followed by the release of their debut album You’re Speaking My Language.
Their second album Four on the Floor, was released in late 2006. “Hot Kiss” which was one of the Licks’ most successful singles, was the first release off of the album.
