I could hardly believe this article is just published. Most artists are around for over at least 2 years. Personally I think there’s more interesting stuff coming from Canada, Belgium, Australia,… UK-pop seems to be so disposible at the moment (like other people said). Some acts are fun, but will be forgotten in 5 years from now. http://popdroid.tumblr.com
Why waste her talent on Beyoncé :( Depressing. Since she signed a major label deal she completely lost it. What’s next a Pitbull/Justin Bieber duet, guest raps by Jay-Z … A total lack of self respect.
The Spectors “Nico” off course http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-0h1Dpdhgo
I don’t know on what planet you guys living. But I remember that in 1988 the charts were full of electronic music, same for the whole 90′s,… (people got bored from hairmetal). At least 70% of the charts. Today I see a lot of recycling (90% major label dance crap). These days you can hear (pop)rock fromArctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Balthazar, Franz Ferdinand, Arcade Fire, Trixie Whitley, Recorders, Editors, Miles Kane, Girls in Hawaii, dEUS, Puggy, Black Box Revelation, Sir Yes Sir, Jacco Gardner,… in primetime at major radiostations. Which was unthinkable during the grunge-era and the complete nineties. At least in Belgium/Europe.
No Belgian bands???? How ignorant can you be.
dEUS: Following Sea is missing.
Finally a video for “Don’t Leave Me”. You missed the best video of the past month: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsFfHdqNOWI
What?? no dEUS? Check my BEL20 & Top 50: http://moviesandmusic.tumblr.com/
No, it’s not different. It sounds just dated. Most of the tracks sound like mediocre 90′s dance music.
