Chloe Hall is an engaging, intriguing and charismatic performer, but it’s the simple, undeniable quality of her songs that will make you want to listen to her songs non-stop. Tragedy is met with grace, loneliness is met with a wry humour – the sun never entirely leaves Chloe’s moody autumnal sky. From her early days as a teenage-troubadour on Australia’s folk-circuit, through years of touring both in Australia and, more recently, North America, Chloe has blossomed into an exciting international artist. Her new album “Outside“, due for release in 2009, reveals the fulfillment of Chloe’s development into the serious recording artist she has always been threatening to become. Chloe is currently on a mission to get 10.000 listeners to her new album and I was more than happy to help her to reach that goal. If you want to be part of it too, read more about it here and start listening to the fully streamable new album Outside.

This afternoon the albumart for A Fine Frenzy's new album 'Bomb in a Birdcage' was updated. All news surrounding Alison's new album is exciting althought to me, this albumcover (clickable) seems more like a temporary thing to show of the logo and the new promotional shoot they are going to use for the new album. What do you think?
UPDATE: A Fine Frenzy also used this albumart in the announcement she made today on MySpace about "Bomb in a Birdcage" that is coming September 8, so it might be the final albumart afterall. She also states that the album "features 11 infectious, bubbly, fun tracks infused with gorgeous lyrics and danceable beats" sounds definitely different than One Cell in the Sea to me!
The Narrative's debut full lenght is still in the works and it may take a while before it's released but in the meantime they've posted a demo of a song called "Fade" on their MySpace it's a song they've been playing live so people that have seen them may recognize it. I really like the song, so I hope they release some additional demos soon.*Indie pop duo Dash & Will have a new song called "Too You Too Dumb" that you can download for free. Download the free track HERE. This free download is for this month only, so get it while you can!*Pop rock duo guest. have their new website up. It features new merchandise, a bio, fully streamable audio and a blog. They are still workin on it so if things aren’t looking right, they will be fixed soon.

"Go Jetsetter" from the forthcoming second album Memoirs At The End Of The World by The Postmarks is up on their MySpace. The Postmarks recorded Memoirs themselves between August of 2008 and February of 2009 in their home recording studios, taking a collaborative approach to the process. The resulting 13-track album combines the band’s proclivity for gritty, atmospheric pop songs with enchanting melodies that draw significant inspiration from film soundtracks. Memoirs is a leap forward for The Postmarks, expressed with ambient textures from dub reggae, horn arrangements from classic soul, and elements of experimentation reminiscent of sounds heard at the birth of electronic music.

Born in Cannes, Julie was raised between France and Canada, and sings entirely in English on this album. As a child, she tended toward self-determination. Her independent spirit is evident throughout Near the Sun, which Julie recorded, mixed, and produced on her own. Spontaneity was key in the creation of this album, as evidenced by tracks such as ‘Innocence.’ “I composed it and wrote the lyrics in under an hour, and recorded it very quickly right after,” she reveals. “... I guess this song is what represents me the most.” The undeniably catchy track ‘Living in a Movie,’ (one of my favorite tracks on the album) replete with irresistible hand-claps; a sweet and somehow cinematic tune that demonstrates Julie’s capability to craft pop songs at once familiar is just one of the songs off Near the Sun that compels repeated listens. Keep an eye out for Near the Sun, and look for her hitting the road across the US later in 2009!
There's also some news on the upcoming album from A Fine Frenzy; "Bomb In a Birdcage". Unfortunately there's no albumart yet, but what we do have is a tracklisting:
2. New Heights
3. Electric Twist
4. Blow Away (listen)
6. Swan Song
8. World Without
9. Bird Of The Summer
