Primark Spring / Summer 2013

15 Dec

The Irish retailer Primark (Pennys) allowed a look at the new collections for spring / summer of 2013.

Primark fans can rejoice now, because in the coming season, it will be varied in the stores and everybody will find the right look. The creations range from the look of an urban cowgirl, inspired on the attitude 80s hip hop girls to sugary girly creations in pastel. My personal highlight are the boxy blazers with stripes and star prints in black and white, jackets and denim shirts in all colors of oldschool to Western.

The best news for last: the first creations for 2013 are already available in stores.

Bruno Mars – Unorthodox Jukebox

15 Dec

Six million albums sold, forty million singles sold and a Grammy Award: Bruno Mars is one of the absolute high-flyers in the pop business since the release of his debut album “Doo-Wops” (2010). Now the native Hawaiians puts on with his new album ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’.

On this album the singer raged in various genres. Whether crunched Michael Jackson-goes-indie-rock sound (‘Gorilla’), arm in arm with Sting (‘Locked Out Of Heaven’), together with Terence Trent D’Arby on piano (‘When I Was Your Man’) or unconcerned fluffy reggae-pop like (‘Show Me’). Bruno Mars looks on “Unorthodox Jukebox” with big eyes beyond his own nose.

Pop, Rock, R & B, Soul: Despite permanent change of direction a thick thread through the whole work. With great choruses and edgy pop up structures the second ‘landing on Mars’ turns out to be a good stop on the way in large worlds.

Keywest are a 5 piece Irish Rock/Pop band. The band recently signed a world wide publishing deal in the US after working with Grammy nominated producer/mixer Mark Needham. Their debut album was released on the 27th of January 2012.

Befor I came to Dublin I never heard about the band. Until one day I discovered they in the shopping street. Despite their success Keywest regularly plays free street concerts.

With one of the largest Facebook fanbases Keywest continue to uphold their reputation as one of the largest growing and most sought after bands in the country.

Keywest is the Band to watch and is expected to break out of Ireland on an International scale and follow such bands as The Script, Snow Patrol and U2.


Wiz Khalifa – O.N.I.F.C.

11 Dec

As this lanky, tattooed guy with the slightly bizarre name in 2006 for the first time struck the musical world with his tunes, nobody could have guessed that six years later, the name Wiz Khalifa is on everyone’s lips.

Game, Snoop, Ne-Yo, even Maroon 5, all they want to have him as a guest on their songs. Despite all these features, he has still managed to complete with ‘O.N.I.F.C.’ his own second studio album. Although none of these artists is represented as a feature, but he has Cam’Ron, Akon, 2 Chainz, Juicy J, and Pharell brought into the bot.

Already with the first three tracks is a little on irrelevance in Wiz ‘appearance. Safe, relaxed and stress free seems ‘Bond Paper’ or ‘Bluffin’. The decisive moment in the battle for the favor of the listener you get with danceable, oppressive beats  like ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’, which was not without reason the first single release from ‘O.N.I.F.C.’. Unexpectedly pale is the nearly ten minute long ‘No limit’.

Is ‘O.N.I.F.C.’ now become a bad album? Not at all. But a successful Album is it also not . If you still can not get enough, let me tell you: The next feature will be come certainly.
