“MY KIND OF LOVE” EMELI SANDE’
The “next Beyonce”? The “next Adele”? Emeli Sande released her debut CD in England and it shot straight to #1. Internationally, she is one of the biggest selling artists of 2012. She writes and composes all of her music and doesn’t use her image or sexuality to sell it, just her incredible vocal skills. Here in the States she’s still a relative unknown. Check out her slow jam, “My Kind Of Love” and you feel the emotional impact of Adele’s Someone Like You especially with the cancer theme of the video. “Next To Me” reminds me of Adele’s Rolling In The Deep. She’ll be performing on Jay Leno Wednesday night. Mark my words, Emeli Sande’ will be nominated for a lot of Grammy Awards in 2013!
“TAKIN’ PILLS” PISTOL ANNIES
Traditional country music twang is alive and well with Miranda Lambert leading the way. Coming off their smash debut single, “Hell On Heels”, the trio is back with another sly come-on, “Takin’ Pills”. Give the song more than one listen and you’re hooked! Besides Miranda, Ashley Monroe (“I Don’t Want To”) and Angeleena Presley make up the all-girl country band. You’ve got to respect that they wrote every song on the CD, play guitar, and challenge country music with their mix of classic country with a splash of sexy attitude.
“CHALK OUTLINE” THREE DAYS GRACE
“Transit Of Venus” will be released on October 2nd, marking the 4th CD for the Canadian modern rock band, Three Days Grace. Basing the album off of “Chalk Outline”, we can expect another album of aggressive hard rock riffs, radio friendly hooks, and hopefully a tour to support the CD. The band promises they took some chances and got experimental this time around. “Transit Of Venus” refers to a once in a lifetime experience when Venus and the moon align in a certain way.
