New UK Single Releases: 12th December 2011, FOO FIGHTERS, DJ SHADOW, COLDPLAY and CEE LO GREEN

Wednesday, 14 December 2011

Caged Animals – 'Pile Of $$$' – No don’t worry I hadn’t heard of these guys either, to be honest they are not the easiest of people to find out about, I read somewhere that they should be compared to Lou Read and The Velvet Underground that put me off before I even heard this song.  I didn’t even get a minute in and was bored already.

Cee Lo Green – 'Anyway' – Does not really need an introduction from me does he?  Cee Lo can simply do no wrong as far as the charts go right now, this latest release is taken from his album “The Lady Killer” for it to feature this song you need to buy the Platinum edition, “Anyway” is a pretty decent pop song which will most probably do well due to
who is singing it.

Coldplay – 'Charlie Brown' – Following on from their impressive number 1 single “Paradise” Coldplay are back with this disappointing second offering.  Coldplay are a bad who I’m not really a big fan of, I do like some of their music and their single before this is probably one of my favourites.  I suppose you could say they are an acquired taste.

DJ Shadow feat. Little Dragon – 'Scale It Back' – An American DJ/songwriter and music producer who to be honest I have not heard of, he is described as a prominent figure in the development of instrumental hip hop.  Again that’s not a genre I have heard of but I
do have to admit that the music and lyrics to “Scale It Back” are very relaxing and easy listening, I’m not going to rush to iTunes to buy it but I could listen to it no problem.  Check out the video and let me know what you think.

Foo Fighters – 'These Days' – Quite possibly one of the biggest rock bands on the planet right now and one of my personal favourites, this is typical Foo Fighters mixing heavy rock with a simmering ballad to fall back on.  It’s not one of my favourites but you have to go check out the video on their VEVO channel, very like the Beatles.

Gotye – 'Easy Way Out' – Don’t know why this has come back on the list again it featured a few weeks back now, you can go check the video HERE.

Mick Hucknall (top), The Naked & Famous
 Mick Hucknall – 'Happy This Christmas' – So here come the Christmas songs, this is the first one I can think of this year, it comes of course from Mick Hucknall formally Simply Red who I am a big fan of but I’m afraid I won’t be rushing out to buy this one Mick.

George Michael – 'December Song' – Song is shit and I can’t stand the guy.

The Naked & Famous – 'No Way' – These guys are a indie rock band from New Zealand and have been on the go for a few years now.  Indie is interesting and mostly I like it, once “No Way” kicks in it’s ok I suppose but I have heard better.

The Rapture – 'Sail Away EP' – Another indie rock band this time from New York City, can’t say I have heard any of their music in the past and to be honest “Sail Away” really does not impress me that much.

Steel Panther – 'Just Like Tiger Woods' – An American glam rock band who have been on the go for 11 years now, I didn’t know bands like this still existed, think 80’s rock Journey, Skidrow etc that is similar to these guys “Just Like Tiger Woods” is taken from their album “Balls Out”, I don’t know weather that’s golf balls or a certain other type of balls, I suppose that depends on what they mean by Like Tiger Woods!

Frank Turner – 'Wessex Boy' – An English pop and folk singer who has been in a few bands, “Wessex Boys” is taken from Turner’s fourth solo album, the song is good if that’s what you are into but it’s not really for me.

The Wombles – 'Wombling Merry Christmas' – Characters from a TV show called funnily enough, The Wombles.  It’s a Christmas song most probably aimed at children, personally I could not bring myself to listen to it.
