Tokio Hotel has released a video for their latest song Hurricanes and Suns from their up coming album Best Of.
Check out the official video on the bands website, being all nostalgic, and taking a journey back through their five year career.
Though they sing "hey, don't you know, we've just begun" a lot of fans are speculating this is a good-bye video. Though I'm sure there is no indication of the band parting, especially after wrapping up their Welcome To Humanoid City, St America and Asia leg in Mexico last night.
Pre-order their new Best Of album from amazon.com, which is out on the 13th of December.

I don't remember how stumbled across this blog -searching for Tame Impala pictures maybe? - none the less, I am very glad that I did.
It's music blog mainly about undiscovered - like as in not on Triple J or anything - Australian music, but they have monthly, well I'm guessing monthly, lists where you can download songs which are from all over the world.
It's definitely worth having a look around.

Gregg Gillis AKA Girl Talk has just released his 5th album All Day as a FREE DOWNLOAD. You can get it in either a one big file, or separate track, though it is intended to be listened in one go.
Mind you, I haven't been able to download it as of yet because of what I guess, high demand, but check back in a few days, and it'll be as good as gold.
Now if you have never heard of Girl Talk, let me tell you about him. Now you could just say he's just a DJ that remixes songs, but he's different(as his shirt says). He doesn't make any new sounds, he just mashes up songs into very cool new ones. Check out the title track from 4th album Feed The Animals.

Finally Mr Wolf has decided to release new music. It's called Time of My Life, and you can have a listen and watch a little lyric video made on his kitchen table from his official YouTube channel here. The song was written after a break up in 2006.
It's such an uplifting song. So if you're feeling blue - because somebody's copping you (sorry, I can't resist the Mighty Boosh) - you should definitely give it a listen.
And according to when it was premiered on Nick Grimshaw's radio show, it was said that the new album was to be released in March.
Check out a nice little review from Popjustice.

Well, as you can see, i haven’t really been active on this website, not that there are many people reading this… by anyways. So i’m going to try and finish that now, with this! Ok now i know i said that i would have lists, but i’ve decided that i will have a weekly wrap sorta thing, which will be totally spontaneous.
Bang Bang Bang by Mark Ronson ft Q-Tip. This is currently my favourite song, it just makes me dance. I have also noticed songs with different languages are becoming not really commercialised, but more frequent *cough* We Speak No Amercano *cough.*
(Note to self: songs in different languages becoming popular? You can say that you were singing in German –Tokio Hotel- before there was ever such a thing called foreign language penetrating radio’s)
Do you know what? Twilight –as in team Edward- have really good sound tracks. On the latest for the Twilight Saga; Eclipse, it features the likes of The Black Keys, super group; The Dead Weather, Florence + The Machine, Vampire Weekend and Muse (full track list here)
Ok, i think that’s enough for me for the moment, and i know what you should do, COMMENT.
The Bachelor; released on the 1st of June 2009, is Patrick Wolf’s fourth studio album. It is the first part of a double album Battle, in which the Conquer is the second half.
With the opening track Kriegspiel, the album is perceived as an electronic mess, but as it’s 47 second running time ends, it fades into Hard Times; one of the strongest tracks of the LP.
This album has a variation of styles from his usual classical Vs electronic style (The Bachelor and Count Of Casualty) the more deep; both lyrically and music wise (Blackdown and The Sun Is Often Out) and then there are these wonderful Irish highland tracks (Damaris and Thickets)
The Bachelor is like a journey through Irish mountains (yes I do realise that he is from England) on horse back,Ii might add, but I guess that’s what he wanted as he said in an interview with .. ok, iIcan’t find the interview, -how good am I? – but lets go on as if there was a quote there..yet, it is still relevant to the times, in Hard Times Patrick singing “show me some, revolution, and this battle will be won.”
In a phrase: Classical, yet relevant.
Rating : three and a half stars.
Words: wolfchildsarah (who else?)
