Jim Capaldi - Something So Strong / Traffic - John Barleycorn

Πέρασαν τέσσερα χρόνια από το θάνατο του Jim Capaldi στις 28 Ιανουαρίου 2005 που έγινε κυρίως γνωστός από τη συμμετοχή του στους Traffic. Εκτός από τη μουσική πρόσφερε και στον κοινωνικό τομέα συμμετέχοντας ενεργά στην οργάνωση Jubilee Action που έχει σκοπό την προσφορά βοήθειας στα παιδιά όλου του κόσμου.



Jim Capaldi - Something So Strong




We started off heading for the top and set our sights on the sun.
Now there's no more tears as we're standing here, and the morning light has begun.
They said that you'll expire. You're wasting your time to try.
But inside a heart of fire is a force you can't deny.

Something so strong driving me on, never tire.
Something so strong, born of the sun.
Like a fire burns inside me so strong

We live in hope waiting for the day, when all our dreams can begin.
But the time it takes for the rain to fall, is the time it takes to give in.
They said that you'll expire. You're wasting your time to try.
But inside a heart of fire, is a force you can't deny.

Something so strong driving me on, never tire.
Something so strong, born of the sun.
Like a fire, sea of fire, burns inside me so strong.

Love is what brought us here.
And no-one can deny.

Something so strong driving me on, never tire.
Something so strong burning so long, like a fire.
Something so strong born of the sun, taking me higher.
Something so strong been coming so long, burning desire.

Something so strong driving me on, never tire.
Something so strong burning so long, like a fire.
Something so strong born of the sun, taking me higher
Something so strong been coming so long, burning desire

Something so strong driving me on, never tire.
Something so strong burning so long, like a fire.


Traffic - John Barleycorn



There were three men came out of the west
Their fortunes for to try,
And these three men made a solemn vow
John Barleycorn must die.

They've ploughed, they've sown, they've harrowed him in
Threw clods upon his head,
And these three men made a solemn vow
John Barleycorn was dead.

They let him lie for a very long time
Till the rains from Heaven did fall,
And little Sir John sprung up his head
And so amazed them all.

They've let him stand till Midsummer's day,
Till he looked both pale and wan.
And little Sir John's grown a long, long beard
And so become a man.

They've hired men with the scythes so sharp,
To cut him off at the knee,
They've rolled him and tied him by the waist,
Serving him most barbarously.

They've hired men with the sharp pitchforks,
Who pricked him through the heart
And the loader, he has served him worse than that,
For he's bound him to the cart.

They've wheeled him around and around a field,
Till they came unto a barn,
And there they made a solemn oath
On poor John Barleycorn

They've hired men with the crab-tree sticks,
To cut him skin from bone,
And the miller, he has served him worse than that,
For he's ground him between two stones.

And little Sir John and the nut brown bowl
And his brandy in the glass
And little Sir John and the nut brown bowl
Proved the strongest man at last

The huntsman, he can't hunt the fox
Nor so loudly to blow his horn,
And the tinker, he can't mend kettle nor pots
without a little barley corn

Von Bondies - Pale Bride



Πρώτο σινγκλ από το καινούριο άλμπουμ των The Von Bondies, Love, Hate, and Then There's You που θα κυκλοφορήσει στις 3 Φεβρουαρίου.


Here she comes
My pale bride
Makes it so that i don't try anyomore
All dressed in white
Sad to see that i don't care anymore

Don't care anymore
I don't care anymore
Don't care anymore
I don't

She's so kind
And on my mind
Fantasy that i can't fake anymore
A lulaby
Makes me wanna spend more time with you

Don't care anymore
I don't care anymore
Don't care anymore
I don't

And she dies
And she dies
And she dies
And she dies


Fall all alone
And on the pain
Pay no mind that i don't care anymore
And on your way
Take you time to read what's on the wall

Don't care anymore
I don't care anymore
Don't care anymore
I don't

And she dies
And she dies
And she dies
And she dies

The All-American Rejects (Featuring The Pierces) - Another Heart Calls



Από το τρίτο άλμπουμ των The All-American Rejects, When the World Comes Down που κυκλοφόρησε στις 16 Δεκεμβρίου. Στα φωνητικά συμμετέχουν οι The Pierces


Do you remember when we didn't care?
We were just two kids that took the moment when it was there
Do you remember you at all?
Another heart calls
I remember when we stole the night
We'd lie awake dreaming 'til the sun would wash the sky
Just as soon as I see you
Didn't I didn't I tell you
As deep as I need you
You wanna leave it all
What can I do
Say it's true
Or everything that matters breaks in two
Say it's true
I'll never ask for anyone but you
Talk to me
I'm throwing myself in front of you
This could be the last mistake that I would ever want to do
All I ever do is give
It's time you see my point of view
Just as soon as I see you
Didn't I didn't I tell you
As deep as I need you
You want to leave it all
What can I do?
Say it's true
Everything that matters breaks in two
Say it's true
I'll never ask for anyone but you
All you want is to figure it out
And God knows I do too
What can I do
Say It's true
I'll never ask for anyone but you
I'm sorry
So what?
But you don't think I've said enough
I'm sorry
I don't care
You were never there
Just as soon as I see you
Didn't I, didn't I tell you
As deep as I need you
You wanna leave it all
What can I do?
Say it's true
Everything that matters breaks in two
Say it's true
I'll never ask for anyone but you
All you want is to figure it out
And God knows I do too
What can I do?
Say it's true
I'll never ask for anyone but you(*5)

White Lies - From The Stars





Στις 19 Ιανουαρίου κυκλοφόρησαν το πρώτο τους άλμπουμ To Lose My Life... οι White Lies. Σύμφωνα με την επίσημη σελίδα τους τo άλμπουμ είχε ανεβεί στη κορυφή των πωλήσεων στη Μεγάλη Βρεττανία την περασμένη εβδομάδα και θα είναι πιθανότατα το επόμενο Νο1 .


I saw a friend that i once knew at a funeral,
He took the time out to be seen.
His eyes kept glancing to the hour hand on the gold watch, that he'd been given by a magazine.

He didn't cry when the priest gave the sermon,
Just pulled up the woolen collar on his fleece.
Crossed his arms, gave a sigh and checked the time again,
As he sat inches from the wife of the deceased.

He catches raindrops on his window, it reminds him how he falls,
From the stars back to our cities, where we've never felt so small

Rain drops from his window making puddles in his hands,
He thinks how quick the water's rising as another raindrop lands

He took a chauffeur driven car back to his hotel,
Passing through the sick streets where he was born
He said "Driver, what's happened to these buildings? They all look run down and so alone."

He took a shower in the bathroom of his penthouse,
Put the Do not Disturb on his door
When the maid came in the morning
She found him shivering on the bedroom floor

He catches raindrops on his window, it reminds him how he falls,
From the stars back to our cities, where we've never felt so small

Rain drops from his window making puddles in his hands,
He thinks how quick the water's rising as another raindrop lands

He catches raindrops on his window, it reminds him how he falls,
From the stars back to our cities, where we've never felt so small

Rain drops from his window making puddles in his hands,
He thinks how quick the water's rising as another raindrop lands

The Decemberists - The Rake's Song




Δωρεάν δίνουν μέσα από την ιστοσελίδα τους οι The Decemberists το The Rake's Song που θα βρίσκεται στο αναμενόμενο να κυκλοφορήσει το Μάρτιο νέο τους LP The Hazards of Love. Το τραγούδι μπορείτε να κατεβάσετε και από εδώ.



I had entered into a marriage
In the summer of my twenty-first year
And the bells rang for our wedding
Only now do I remember it clear
Alright, alright, alright

No more a rake and no more a bachelor
I was wedded and it whetted my thirst
Until her womb start spilling out babies
Only then did I reckon my curse
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

First came Eziah with his crinkled little fingers
Then came Charlotte and that wretched girl Dawn
Ugly Myfanwy died on delivery
Mercifully taking her mother along
Alright, alright, alright

What can one do when one is widower
Shamefully saddled with three little pests
All that I wanted was the freedom of a new life
So my burden I began to divest
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

Charlotte I buried after feeding her foxglove
Dawn was easy, she was drowned in the bath
Eziah fought but was easily bested
Burned his body for incurring my wrath
Alright, alright, alright

And that's how I came your humble narrator
To be living so easy and free
Expect you think that I should be haunted
But it never really bothers me
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

John Frusciante - Unreachable / Dark Light / Song To The Siren

Concept το καινούριο άλμπουμ του John Frusciante , The Empyrean στο οποίο συμπεριλαμβάνονται και τα Unreachable , Dark Light. Εκτός από τις δικές του συνθέσεις ο John Frusciante διασκευάζει και το Song to the Siren του Tim Buckley. Σε δυο κομμάτια του The Empyrean που κυκλοφορεί στις 20 Ιανουαρίου συμμετέχει και ο Johnny Marr.

Unreachable






Are we
Down for the same cause?
We don't know what we stand for
When the moments start to crack
You do lose track where your head's at

And I am unreachable
What do you think when your head's full?
We don't rely on what we get
We begin now where we aren't yet
Ay!

One time, hit me where I turn white
I don't mean to be polite
Uniformed, spinnin in the world to the beat of my drums
Uniformed...

One time, hit me where I turn white
I don't mean to be polite
Uniformed, spinnin in the world to the beat of my drums
Uniformed...

Reach into the darkness for what you can find
Travel great distance in your mind
The world gets stronger as you start tryin things
Turn around towards me and walk away from dying

I've run out again this, the one on my side
Were we to disappear, well, I know I've tried
You know we've tried, you know we've tried
Heyyy, shoot me
Heyyy, shoot me
Shoot me, shoot me
Hey...

Ohhhh



Dark Light





Remember all youve forgotten
I cant put those thought away

Everything Ive thoughts in my head to stay

Now what do we get for trying to follow to a tee
All the instructions you gave me

Did you ever notice
That its for you that Ive lived my life

Every time I had fun you were on my mind
Ive lost my perspective
Ive gone off the wall

Really not sure if Im needed here at all
Hey
This is my last shot
Ill always be less than my other selves

So I feel like Im competing with someone else

Who I could never beat in a million years
I was made to think that we would wind up round here
Will we ever get together in a song
Will you ever tell everybody bout right and wrong
Will you let everyone in on the meaning of life and death

Do you need me or are you waiting for my last breath

Listen

Song To The Siren






Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle
And you sang
Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am
Waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow:
O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow"

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am troubled at the tide:
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with Death my bride?
Hear me sing, "Swim to me, Swim to me, Let me enfold you:
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you

Tim Buckley - Song to the Siren



Στο Starsailor (1970) βρισκόταν το Song to the Siren του Tim Buckley που διασκευάζει ο John Frusciante στο The Empyrean.

You don't know,
I sing these songs,

For you.

Are you happy now?
That the Gods are dying.
Or do you dream of
(dont know this line)
You should be happier now,
with no one to pray to.
Or would i love to break your knees from begging and praying?


Bite Hard.
Well its a broken smile,
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds.
Bite Hard.
A survival guide,
Edges and lines and we ride together,
Bite Hard.

May be lonelier now but im happy oh no honest.
Aint only alone but what would we talk about anyway,
I'd never resort to kissing your photo,
Honest,
i just had to see,
How the chemicals taste their honey.

Bite Hard.
well its a broken smile,
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds.
Bite Hard.
A survival guide,
Edges and lines and we ride together,
Bite Hard.

We ride together,
We ride together,
We die together.

Bite hard.
ahhhhh
Bite hard.
ahhhhohhhh
Bite hard.
woaaaaaaah

Well i never,
Well i never
Well i never know,
Well i never,
I just had to,
I just had to taste their honey.

Bite Hard.
well its a broken smile,
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds.
Bite Hard.
A survival guide,
Edges and lines and we ride together,
We ride together,
We die together

Twilight Omens



I wrote your name upon the back of my hands
Slept upon it and I woke up with it
Backwards on my face
Reading forwards to my mirror
To my heart

Twilight omens in my life
Then I hear your name
Hear the way you sing your name, baby
Should I give you a call
And I say:
Baby, you still feel the same.

I typed your number into my calculator
Where it?s spelled as your word
When you turn it upside down
You can turn my dirty world
The bright way round

Twilight omens in my life
Then I hear your name
Hear the way you sing your name
Should give you a call
And I say:
Oh, maybe I still feel the same.
Twilight omens in my life
Keep hearing your name
Keep hearing your name
Keep hearing your name
Keep hearing you sing your name

Bon Iver - Blood Bank





Το ομώνυμο από το καινούριο EP των Bon Iver, Blood Bank που κυκλοφορεί στις 20 Ιανουαρίου.

uuuuuh uuuuuh uuuh (4x)

Well I met you at the blood bank
We were looking at the bags
Wondering if any of the colors
Matched any of the names we knew on the tags

You said see look it that's yours
Stacked on top with your brothers
See how they resemble one anothers?
Even in their plastic little covers

And I said I know it well

That secret that you know
That you don't know how to tell
it f--ks with your honor
And it teases your head
But you know that its good girl
Cause its running you with red.

Then the snow started falling
We were stuck out in your car
You were rubbing both my hands
Chewing on a candy bar
you said ain't this just like the present
To be showing up like this
There's a moon waning crescent
we started to kiss

And I said I know it well

That secret that we know
That we don't know how to tell
I'm in love with your honor
I'm in love with your cheeks
what's that noise up the stairs baby
Is that Christmas morning

And I know it well (8x)

Morrissey - I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris



Το πρώτο σινγκλ από το αναμενόμενο να κυκλοφορήσει στις 13 Φεβρουαρίου καινούριο άλμπουμ του Morrissey "Years of Refusal"

In the absence of your love
And in the absence of human touch
I have decided
I’m throwing my arms around, around Paris
Because only stone and steel accept my love.

In the absence of your smiling face
I traveled all over the place2
And I have decided
I’m throwing my arms around, around Paris
Because only stone and steel accept my love
I’m throwing my arms around, around Paris
Because only stone and steel accept my love.

I’m throwing my arms around Paris
Because nobody wants my love
Nobody wants my love
Nobody needs my love
Nobody wants my love

Yes, you made yourself plain
Yes, you made yourself very plain

I hear the nights are long the days are lonely
I think of you and I´m working on a dream
I´m working on a dream

Now the cards I've drawn is rough and darkened
I straightened my back and I´m working on a dream
I´m working on a dream (come on)

I´m working on a dream, though sometimes it feels so far away
I´m working on a dream, and I know it will be mine someday

Rain pouring down I swing my hammer
My hands are rough from working on a dream
I´m working on a dream (let´s go)

I´m working on a dream, though trouble can feel like its here to stay
I´m working on a dream, well our love will chase the trouble away

I´m working on a dream, though it can feel so far away
I´m working on a dream, our love will make it real someday

The sun rises up,I climb the ladder
A new day breaks and...I'm working on a dream
I'm working on a dream,I'm working on a dream
I'm working on a dream

Come on....

I'm working on a dream,though it can feel so far away
I'm working on a dream, our love will make it real someday
I'm working on a dream,oh it can feel so far away
I'm working on a dream,and our love will make it real someday

Album: The Premonition

Here we are again, martyrs of the revolution
The countdown of the human pain
Nothing left to burn, witnessing the prosecution
Killing ourselves time and again

Save me! Don't let them take my life from me
Help me! My fears become reality

Into the fire
No need to pray for me
Into the fire
My tears are black so set me free

Hellfire burns again, angels of this constitution
The day of reckoning we'll learn
We're marching to the end, to the final execution
This blackest day, there's no return

Save me! Don't let them take my life from me
Help me! Eternal pain is what I feel

Into the fire
No need to pray for me
Into the fire
My tears are black so set me free

Wolf Parade - Language City /Call It a Ritual

To Language City που είναι το 2ο σινγκλ από το πρόσφατο άλμπουμ At Mount Zoomer των καναδών Wolf Parade όπως και το 1ο, Call It a Ritual τα διέθεσαν δωρεάν και μπορείτε να τα κατεβάσετε από τις αντίστοιχες σελίδες του Pitchfork Media εδώ και εδώ ή απ' ευθείας από τα λινκ στα ονόματα των τραγουδιών.

Language City






Language City is a bad, old place
We all know
Where eyeballs float in space
We all know

We were tired, we can't sleep
It's crowded here, none of us leave
Language City don't mean a thing to me

Audiences, the same program is always on
I'd infer, it's best to avoid the law
When your wife wakes up and sees
Shut the blinds and block out the street
Language City don't mean a thing to me

All this working
Just to tear it down
All this working
Just to tear it down

Language City is a bad, old place
We all know
Eyeballs float in space
We all know

We're tired, we can't sleep
It's crowded in the street
Language City don't mean a thing to me

I been here so long my heart is a parking lot
Hollow feet rooted to the spot
But the fields are beyond belief
From tower out to where I can see
Language City don't mean a thing to me

All this working
Just to tear it down
All this working
Just to tear it down

On the telephone
On the telephone
On the telephone
Someone's counting the hours
In a paper room
In a paper room
In a paper room
Somebody's counting the hours

Know I know it's true
From above this room
Somebody's counting the hours
The hours
The hours
The houuuuurs

Oh the long bitter road
Let us down
Oh the ringing telephone
There's no one around

We are not at home
We are not at home
We are not at home
We are not at home
We are not at home
We are not at home

We are not at home
We are not at home
We are not at home
We are not at home
We are not at home
We are not at home

Hang on the telephone
Hang on the telephone
Hang on the telephone
Hang on the telephone


======================
Call It a Ritual





well into the desert you must go
so into the desert we go
call it a ritual
call it whatever you will

and you will grow mad at me
as naturally as branches on a tree
call it a ritual
call it whatever you will

and you know
they will swing swing their swords for show
while you turn your flower petals so slow

you said the desert will eat us alive
i said i'll make the decisions you just drive
you just drive

and i saw the windmill wings were gone
and i heard the wind come creepin around
call it an act of easy mercy
to tear the structure down

call it whatever you will
call it whatever you will

cause you know
they will swing swing their swords for show
while you turn your flower petals so slow

but i am amazed at how they go
i am amazed at how they go
but i am amazed at how they go
i am amazed at how they go
but i am amazed at how they go
i am amazed at how they go
but i am amazed at how they go
i am amazed at how they go
but i am amazed at how they go
i am amazed at how they go

so call it whatever you will
call it a ritual
call it whatever you will

you know
they will swing swing their swords for show

Animal Collective - Summertime Clothes



Στις 20 Ιανουαρίου κυκλοφορεί το καινούριο άλμπουμ των Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion στο οποίο βρίσκεται και το Summertime Clothes.

So x4
Sweet summer night and I'm stripped to my sheets
Foreman is leaking; my AC squeaks
And a voice from the clock says "You're not gonna get tired"
My bed is a pool and the wall's on fire
Soak my head in the sink for a while
It chills my neck and it makes me smile
But my bones gotta move and my skin's gotta breathe
You pick up the phone and I'm so relieved

You slide down the stairs to the eager street
And the sun is left with slippery feet
And I want to walk around with you (x2)
(And be here with you)

It doesn't really matter, I'll go where you feel
Home for the breeze, get a midnight meal
I'll point in the windows, you point out the parks
Rip off your sleeves and I'll ditch my socks
Dance to the songs from the cars as they pass
Weave through the cardboard, smell that trash
Walkin' around in our summertime clothes
Know where to go where our bodies go

And we'll breath the dawn in its morning blues
With purple yawns, you'll be sleeping soon
And I want to walk around with you (x2)

When the sun goes down we'll go out again! (x16)

Don't cool off
I like your warmth

Let's leave the sound of the heat for the sound of the rain
It's easy to sleep when it wets my brain
It covers my rest with a saccharine sheen
Kissing the wind through my window screen
But restless is causeless and I cannot hide
So much of my mind that it spills outside
Do you wanna go stroll down a financial street?
Our clothes might get soaked
But the buildings sleep

And there's no one pushing for a place
As we enter at an easy pace
And I want to walk around with you (x2)
I want to walk around with you (x4)

Just you

Her eyes are underneath the ground
I have heard the crying sound

No one can stop you now
No one can stop you now

Her eyes are basking in the sun
No one knows why she did the things she's done

Ocean, swallow me now
Ocean, swallow me now

In the garden, with my mother
I stole a flower
With my mother, in her power
I stole a flower

I saw six eyes glistening in my womb
I felt you calling me in the gloom

Rest assured your love is pure
Rest assured your love is pure

In the garden, with my mother
I stole a flower
With my mother, in her power
I chose a flower

Atmosphere - Painting / Guarantees

Από το πιο πετυχημένο εμπορικά άλμπουμ των Atmosphere, When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold που κυκλοφόρησε την περασμένη χρονιά και είχε επίσης πολύ καλές κριτικές.

Painting


[Slug - Verse 1]
Ain't no colour paint gonna cover the stains
The pictures on the wall will all remain
And even though he's now, sound and safe
Surrounded by the faces that he place his faith
The images visit from the past he witnessed
Can't stay away from the memories
Sticks with each detail, embedded in stone
Like he chiseled stoves convictions into his bones
The progress stops and pauses, spits and sputters
Like the basement faucet
And it's obvious he's lost in his regrets
You can smell it on his breath

[Slug - Verse 2]
Ain't no colour paint gonna cover the stains
But now the alcohol is gonna mother the pain
Tuck it away, no complaints
Just laying on his back, on hisbackyard under the rain
Take tomorrow but doesn't no how though
For every swallow there's another to follow
He weaves his way throughout the story
Looking for a new missing piece or a door key
Spirits used to be for celebration
But now they just take him away from the hell that's waiting
Re-up until it's three sheets up
And pick a place for the skeletons to meet up

[Slug - Verse 3]
Ain't no colour paint gonna cover the stains
But if the oxygen escapes it'll smother the flames
No introduction doesn't speak his own name
Gonna beat them demons at they own game
The sunset rides to the end slow
Same song echoing outside of the window
You can't grow if the skin don't fit you
Sometimes you gotta get low just to get through
No inspiration left to do your best when
Nobody hates you more than you're reflection
Suffer the shame until it stuffs the drain
He's got two hands and a bucket of paint
Come on


Guarantees


[V1]
These warehouse wages kill the end's introduction
Man, I shoulda' shchooled it up when I was younger, shoulda' stuck to plan
Always had the dreams of bein' more self-assertive
And my kid's a teenager now, he needs the health insurance
So break my body, break-break my soul down
Just another zombie walkin' blindly through ya ghost town
Pull up to the bar to politic and tap the power
Ain't nobody really all that jolly at your happy hour
But I don't wanna go home yet
So I'ma talk to my cigarette and that television set
It doesn't matter what brand or station
Anything to take away from the current situation
No overtime pay, no holiday
Months behind on everything but the lottery
Winter 'round the corner, guaranteein' that my car dies
Wifey havin' trouble tryna juggle both the part-times
My cup ain't close to filled up
We tryna build up so we could have enough
And when I finally get the color, won't be nothin' else to paint on
A friend of mine tried to kill himself to the same song

[V2]
My better half is mad at makin' magic outta can goods
My tax bracket status got her questionin' my manhood
My shorty got caught smokin' weed at a concert
And if I smack 'em everybody treats me like a monster
My neighbors ain't doin' much better
And we makin' competition instead of stickin' together
Can't save no nest egg, in fact this nest is rented
In fact that rent is late, wait
The money ain't here, the raise ain't comin'
Just me and my son and that crazy woman
And those bartenders, this whole fuckin' country
Got everybody swallowin' that lunch meat
Maybe we could speed up the process
Kill me in my thirties in the name of progress
Put me in the dirt and then change the topic
Sometimes seems like the only way to stop it
Contemplate my departure date
Doesn't take a lot to get a lot of us to talk this way
Take a shot at me, that's all I'm obligated for
Apparently my only guarantee is a walk-away

[Outro x2]
The only guarantee in life
Is a life worth dyin' for
Cause death don't wait for no one
It's sittin' on yo front door
