(intro attach*) Not a normal constellation tune , 2nd we have Swimdeep ≈ with “She Changes The weather” this Birmingham lad, brings you. Nirvana revivalism vocal +addictive piano solo, 3rd, we travel back to the 80’s with New Order “Blue Monday” dramatic genre change post-Ian Curtis, Joy Division Members from Post punk to Pioneer in British Electronic scene & last we have Grammy awards winner duo the black keys with “turn blue”, Psychedelic Blues, peace out.☮ #Paternism (at ion.CreativeLab®)

#instaAltMusicReview 

Ok we’re gonna make this a thing,review old/new alt music for th masses, first we going for Tom Odell’s “another love”, it’s a ballad for the broken hearted. NME hated him (so F Rude), but who reads NME anymore? This young Britannia won best brit male artist 2013🇬🇧, if he’s mainstream? Who cares? “another love” is our Elton John for this generation with epic Piano riff* & sad lullabies , 2nd we have Graceless by The National, this post-punk band reminds me of Joy Division, not on par, but this is how it sounds like if Joy Division managed to go for the 80’s US tour, yes Interpol is the US rendition for Ian Curtis & co. but wouldn’t it be awesome if we have more than one?, 3rd we have HAIM with “If I could Change your mind” this sis-trio band maybe related but they’re awesome, they give you that 80’s feel with heavy drum+bass combo with Catchy guitar tune, makes you feel if there is an 80’s car ad, this would be just perfect. Some say they’re sounds like “destiny’s child” but I still goes with fleetwood mac (girl version) nonetheless They are Festival band certified, cos’ been there done that ;) lastly we have Hannah hunt by Vampire Weekend, who is Hannah? I don’t know but she’s responsible for an addiction I had on “Modern Vampire of The City” I’m gonna say “Diane Young” but Saab car burning chick won’t contemplate me, Hannah Hunt is Ezra Koenig secret weapon of heartache in a tune that still addictive for me, #MVoTC is 10/10 album Grammy certified, with songs that described Socio-politics/Anti-Semitism/Anti-Saab/NY/Israel-Palestine/conflict/Falafel, if “ya hey” is a religious song, “step” & “Obvious Bicycle” is unfixed geographically introductory, Hannah hunt is part of everything that makes vampire weekend latest record unforgettable.

#InstaAltMusicReview: first we have Coldplay with “magic” heavy bass, 2nd single from their upcoming new album “Ghost Stories” darker Than Mylo Xyloto Album, next we have Foster The People with “Coming Of Age” Mark Foster is still Foster but a bit more psychedelic on this one, briefly describe what is a “coming of age” movie in a song. In third we have “gun” by CHVRCHΞS, Lauren Mayberry is cute but she can be a gun, Indie electro band of 2013 brings something more addictively catchy tune since “The Mother we share” & lastly is Bombay Bicycle Club with “Feel”, finally lives up to their band name, from their latest record “So Long, see you tomorrow.” Brings you psychedelic revival with Indian music instruments, reminds me of Beatles’ yellow sub🔶 #Coldplay #FosterThePeople #CHVRCHES #BombayBicycleClub #MusicReviewOnTheGo #SongsOfTheWeek #Independent #MiniAlbumReview #ion #indieke

Phoenix live in Singapore 15.01.2014 (Backstage bloque.)

 image

How should I start this, oh YES I’M GOING TO SEE PHOENIX LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME.

I’ve been listening to them since Glastonbury 2010 where they’re perform Lisztomania in a freakin massive music fest (see link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_JWCMA1ad4)& yes I’m a late discoverer of this french nobelmen but it doesn’t stop me from discovering their previous non-wolfgang amadeus album

(Look at mah playlist)

image

not me (still not gay.)

image

 

as soon as I reached the venue I met my friends @nzrlsyzwn , @fikadhum@clarrence (just met you guys, but indie music genius lah hahaha) two other die hard phoenix fans & we were redirected by the event management from The Star to meet & greet phoenix, by phoenix I mean the entire band members, I’m a die hard fans but I did’t prepare myself to be fanatic fan that day (see…trying to be cool ;) I just came prepared with my mini notebook for signature & some rambling french words I won’t understand .__.”.

 

I’m really excited in the same time & I’m thinking what I suppose to say (in french), both of the girls have all the LP/EP/PHOENIX JACKET/POSTERS/ album cover

NAILS,/XX genes, while we’re walking to the band preparation room (highly guarded by buff securities)

image

 (LP/EP/Poster bertaburan…)

when I step to their Band prep room, my heart skipped a beat & there it was Phoenix in front of us…

image

I begin with a simple hand shake with all the band members, few french word I can’t seem to remember, (I recalled baguette/Magnifique. & yes made them laugh yes)

After that I’m like Hi, bonjour, OMG, How’s Singapore?, how’s japan?, they simply reply with a humble smile & strong french accent & say everything is “good & great”, reason why I called them humble is they’re really down to earth, kinda band. Because we usually think bands are too high & the really like to stay that way…. But they’re truly are a noble frenchmen.

Photo taking session.

The event organizer lady reminding us we have 5 more mins, the girls started asking them to sign everything they have in that very monment & taking photo with 4 of  them

image 

& we patiently wait, when it’s our turn I said “ I want the other thomas to join us too” Thomas Hedlund was in the room doing what other drummer suppose to do duh?! & they all we’re laughing (made them laugh 2nd time yes!) & I got both Thomas & the rest of the band member to join me in a photo.

image

(Branco,Deck, Thomas Hedlund,”me”Thomas Mars, Christian)

 image

image

that very five mare minute I felt like a lifetime, impromtu Q/A session , deck was asking us “so guys from Malaysia eh?” haha ( awat hang tak pi Malaysia? Side joke.) Mars was really amuse by Nazrul Lyric book he made for them &  Branco was asking us if “we were musician or play any instrument?” (in a very thick french accent) we said we used too, he laugh & he said he can really tell (I think it’s because of Nazrul beard or my fred perry lol) & all of said enjoy our show & I reply Enjoy the crowd !!

image

(@fikadhum & @clarrence & PHOENIX!) nice move clerrence ;)

& that was it ,5 +mins of us & phoenix….

image

(MAZZALAI PHOTOBOMB!)

well I did ask a last question.. “How was performing with HAIM ?” & they said “ HAIM….yes yes they were great band(with strong french accent) “

image

(me promoting HAIM + laneway hahaha)

ok time for the Phoenix concert…

P/s:Special thanks to Naz(@nzrlsyzwn )  & ESPECIALLY Muhammad Akif (@Fikadhum) for the meet & greet, I LOVE U GUYS!!!
