New Sound Pollution - Northern Lights

Hip hop/pop production group New Sound Pollution have recently put a song up on their myspace. The song, 'Northern Light', is a dark fusion of dance synths and eastern instrumentation. A strange fusion of sounds which make up a great sounding song. Its starts out slowly, with a broken up dub like beat, building up and breaking down. Half way through the beat changes into something you can nod your head and tap your feet to. A very interesting song that I recommend you have a listen to. Lets hope they put out something else soon!

The End Of An Era

Its a shame, how in the end all good music scenes come to an end. It feels that we have now come to end of the recent 'indie' scene here in England, that was started by bands such as the Libertines. We've reached the stage now where the industry is just churning out overly produced copycat bands, like The View. I have been feeling for a while that the recent music boom here in the UK was beginning to die down but when the View, a band who are a rip off of every other band in the genre, went to No. 1 I new it was definitely over. As with all the pure, organic, music movements it is only matter of time before the record industry cottons on and starts twisting the glorious movement into a money making scheme. They start producing bands with an exact sound and style but with absolutely no integrity or genius. It is a shame, but its the way it goes and we can only hope that next music revolution is not to far around the corner.
