When you take a look at movies like Garden State and The Last Kiss you can see that Sir Zachary Braff CLEARLY knows a thing or two about music. In the past he has featured music by The Shins (Garden State introduced so many people to them), Rufus Wainwright, Cary Brothers, Zero 7, Frou Frou, Turin Brakes, Coldplay, and so many more amazing artists!
Now that Zach has just finished writing, directing, and acting in his new film “Wish I Was Here” it sounds like he is putting together one awesome soundtrack. According to Entertainment Weekly, the new Garden State-esqu film’s soundtrack will feature new music from
I’ve never been a fan of shows like the Voice, American Idol, X Factor, etc. I feel this way for many reasons: complete lack of indie music (booo), my personal fear of rejection (I get way too nervous for the singers), my idea of talent clearly doesn’t match the judges lol.
I can say however that if I had to pick one of these shows to watch it would be the Voice, and what better reason to start watching than Chris Martin, my favorite front man! According to USA Today Martin will be an adviser for all four of the coaches teams during the battles March 31 he will also be on the show on April 1 and 7. Will you be tuning in? I know I will, just to hear a bit of Chris Martin’s VOICE…haha voice get it? I am so funny!
in case you felt like drooling tonight:
Eeeek! It is October 24th and do you know what that means fellow music lover?? I will tell you! It means that one of my absolute favorite bands, Coldplay has released their newest album Mylo Xyloto to the world!!!!!!!!! Oh Happy Day!! You know, for a while Coldplay had dropped from my radar right up until I saw them play the most amazing live show I had ever seen in my life at Lollapalooza 2011! After that I went crazy searching all the unfamiliar songs they had played only to find out I had to wait 2 months to hear it again :(. Well, the wait is over and by the time I get home from work today there SHOULD be a nice little package in my mailbox just waiting to be opened and played!! If you didn’t pre-order…get your ass to Target and BUY IT!! Seriously…what i’ve already heard from this album has proved to me, there will be NO disappointment.
This is the bands fifth studio album and the first one to have a theme which Chris Martin says is “based on a love story with a happy ending, in which two protagonists: Mylo and Xyloto, who are living in an oppressive, dystopian urban environment, meet one another through a gang called “The Lost Boys”, and fall in love”. Martin says that the album was also inspired by the HBO TV show “The Wire“. I recently read an article in Spin (my #1 music source) about the album, and when asked about it the band says they feel “It’s Us Against the World” which is coincidentally a track from their new album. Well Coldplay, from that grassy patch in Grant Park where I stood.. I saw millions of Lollapalooza goers (including myself) who were brought together by a love for your music and I think it’s safe to say…we proved you wrong! 🙂
When I listen to anything by Coldplay I feel like I’m in a whole other world. Their music relaxes me, excites me, makes me want to cry, makes me want to scream! Coldplay is absolutely my life’s soundtrack and why wouldn’t I be excited for that soundtrack to expand! I can’t wait to listen to the album through and through! If any of you have listened to it, tell me what you think!!! As always, Happy Listening! And here is the album’s track list….
1. Mylo Xyloto
2. Hurts Like Heaven
4. Charlie Brown
5. Us Against The World
7. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall
8. Major Minus
10. Princess Of China
