Boom Boom Music Magazine Sampler 2009

Posted in alphabeat, aura dione, boom boom magazine, ida corr, mike sheridan, sampler, sinne eeg, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 1, 2009 by boomboommag

01
ALPHABEAT Fascination
The Brits have already demonstrated their unconditional love for the pop sextet Alphabeat – several of  their singles have been highly placed in the UK Top 40. This is pop with a big, bold capital P, and what we have seen so far is probably just the tip of the iceberg! Fascinated? It’s hard not to be!

02 IDA CORR Ride my Tempo (Radio edit)
Ida Corr rules dance floors from Bangkok to Bergen. Her sweaty, super-sexy new single is a delicious,  electro-groovy follow-up to the international hit “Let Me Think About It”, which reached number 2 on the British singles chart. Still wondering whether to check out her retro-soul-dance sound? Enough thinking already!?

03 CAROLINE HENDERSON Bang Bang
Forget everything you thought you knew about Cher’s heartbroken drama “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot  Me Down)”. Elegant jazz chanteuse Caroline Henderson reinvents the old Sonny Bono classic with a  defined arrangement full of offbeat, stealthy rhythms and sophisticated phrasing that’s more supple than an elite Chinese gymnast. A clear example of just how the former pop singer has managed to seduce an international jazz audience.

04 MOI CAPRICE The Town and the City
Moi Caprice have been plugging away on the Danish rock scene since the mid-’90s, but their pop masterpiece “The Art of Kissing Properly” reached a much wider audience. The album contains so many sing-along moments that you will be in serious danger of losing your voice within a week of getting it. Universal simplicity, intelligent lyrics and perfect, luxurious, melancholy pop. Moi Caprice: Denmark’s next big export?

05 MIKE SHERIDAN Stilhed
Lapping soundscapes, poetic melodies and rhythmic finesse are among 17-yearold Mike Sheridan’s  specialities – as showcased here on “Stilhed” (“Silence”), which features the delicate vocals of Frida Hilarius. Sheridan’s thoughtfully composed and largely instrumental debut album “I Syv Sind” (“In Two Minds”) is surely just the start of this promising young producer’s career….

05 Sinne Eeg Just You, Just Me
“Her dark vocals have such strength, intensity and calm that the firmament might as well reserve a place  for a new North Star,” wrote one Danish reviewer of Sinne Eeg. The jazz singer received a Danish Music Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year in 2008 and is slowly but surely on course to conquer the world. Enjoy this taster, and expect to see her on the bill at your local jazz club soon.

07 CHOIR OF YOUNG BELIEVERS Next Summer
A sensitive and grandiose love song from this critically acclaimed one-man choir – also known as 25-year-old Jannis Noya Makrigiannis. “Next Summer” demonstrates his gift for monumental and heartfelt melancholy, as lauded by trendsetting American website Pitchforkmedia.com. local jazz club soon.

08 FIGURINES The Air We Breathe
“‘Catchy’ is without a doubt the right word to start with when talking about ‘Skeleton’,” said music website Pitchforkmedia of Figurines, who also had the honour of landing a magazine cover in the New  York Times. The indie band released “Skeleton”, their second album, in Japan, the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, Austria, Switzerland and Germany. The reaction to the 2007 album “When the Deer Wore Blue” was also overwhelming.

09 DÚNÉ 80 Years
Emotions on the edge and an insistent melodic momentum; the sound of being pursued by a heavily hung-over Franz Ferdinand. Danish rockers Dúné have gone gold in their native country, and “80 Years” is just one of many gems on their debut album. See the cool video on YouTube, where one user has penned this piece of poetry: “Denmark = the best music in the world! The best music in the world = Roskilde Festival. Roskilde Festival = beer. Beer = Denmark!” Cheers mate!

10 SMALL Cosmic Girl
A big sound emerges when electro-pop trio Small let rip on “Cosmic Girl” – airy synth aesthetics mix with noisy guitars, sculpting a soundscape around a contagious semi-falsetto pop song in praise of the free world. The sky’s the limit; Small are already big!

11 AURA Song for Sophie
With Sony BMG Continental behind her, songstress Aura is on the verge of a potential European breakthrough. “Song for Sophie” is an excellent example of her spellbinding ability to combine folk and pop. Add to that a particularly strong visual image, and you get an obvious cover star for this edition of Boom Boom. You might want to turn back to the front page!

12 CALLMEKAT Flower in the Night
Curiosity dominates in CALLmeKAT’s quirky universe. “Flower in the night” is a clattering and groovy piece with a particularly catchy hook. At the centre are Katrine Ottosen’s distinctive vocals and her inventive use of several instruments, manipulated via a laptop. Her imagination seems to know no bounds!

13 JONG PANG Small Cut Sensations
Loose-jointed indie excesses from Anders Rhedin, who also occupies the producer chair for other Danish bands from time to time. “Small Cut Sensations”, from Jong Pang’s debut album “Bright White Light”, clearly demonstrates the band’s talent for seductive, subdued melodies and gripping guitar sounds.

14 EFTERKLANG Caravan
The Efterklang collective are among the most subtle Danish musicians around. Their seductive,  convoluted arrangements create exceptional, entrancing atmospheres. “Caravan” is an excellent example of their work.

Ida Corr — Dancing Queen

Posted in boom boom magazine, danish music scene, ida corr with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 16, 2009 by boomboommag

Danish soul diva Ida Corr looks and sounds like a world-class artist. She’s already had an international smash hit with the electrohouse single “Let Me Think About It”, thanks to a Dutch remixer and lots of hard work – oh, and a little luck too.

Even though she’s now fully aware of her success, Corr has no time for performance anxiety. She has toured tirelessly, primarily in Europe, where “Let Me Think About It” never fails to get clubs partying like it’s 2099. The singer has also taken her first careful step into the legendarily daunting American market with the double album “One”, which comprises a collection of the best tunes from her first two albums and a disc of remixes. “I’ll soon be doing some radio promotion work, but otherwise I don’t really know how it’s going. It’s my dream to make it in the USA, but of course it’s a really difficult market to break into. I have a lot of classic soul in my sound, so it’ll be exciting to see if it goes down well. It’s all about knowing the right people, so I’ll need to try and build up a network over there,” she reckons.

The Destiny’s Child classics “Survivor” and “Independent Women” could have been about Corr, who is very much self-made. Brought up as a musician, she writes most of her music and lyrics herself. Nor does the music slavishly follow current R&B trends. It’s raw, personal, fun and piquant. “I’ve been riding all night / I’m a country girl / fits the saddle just right / Yee-ha! / There just ain’t no cowboy who can’t be my boy toy,” she sings in the cheeky “Country Girl”.

[…]

It’s no longer a man’s, man’s, man’s world, and mama’s got a brand new Gucci bag. Soul diva Ida Corr’s export adventure has only just begun.
