kevin-costner-has-busy-schedule-web.jpg

While most know him for his work as an actor, Kevin Costner is winning everyone over with his music too!

Kevin's band, Modern West, is quickly gaining more and more fans — he takes care of his new adorers too! Costner believes that even casual come-and-goers can get in on the fun as Modern West's performances are "loosey-goosey" and entertaining.

Modern West is set to go on tour,

The Archetypes Of Electra Hart! New Marina!

The journey into the world of Electra Hart continues - and we're getting a little more abstract!

Check out the third video from Marina and the Diamonds' alter-ego, for which she has cultivated for her upcoming album of the same name, called The Archetypes (above)!

Bold, one of a kind, and oddly hypnotic!

Wonder if this is some sort of intro or transition track?

Either way, we cannot wait to hear this record in its entirety!

How about U??

MORE New Tunes From Imogen Heap!

Filed under: Music MinuteImogen Heap


As you may or may not know, Imogen Heap has been hard at work on a brand new concept album since March, which samples 900 everyday sounds sent in by fans, and with one new track from it released every three months!

Well, for whatever reason, the singer has dropped TWO new tracks from the project that pretty much couldn't be more aesthetically different from each another, but are both equally FANTASTIC!

Check out the music video for Minds Without Fear, which is a collaboration with Indian composer Vishal Shekhar, as well as the other new single, Neglected Space (above)!

So innovative, right?

She seriously is one of the most creatively fearless musicians out there, while all the while still managing to put so many layers of heart and emotion into her material!

We love these! How about U??

Yes! Tori Amos Announces New Album And Tour Dates!

Filed under: Music MinuteTori Amos

Oh man, are we excited for this or WHAT?!

Gurl sounds as though she is pulling out all the stops for this one!

Tori Amos announced today that her new album, which will mark her first release through the classical music record label Deutsche Grammophon, will be called Night of Hunters, and each track will not only follow a specific story, but also take inspiration from classical elements fused together with her original material!

She explains:

“I have used the structure of a classical song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story. The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter. One of the main themes explored on this album is the hunter and the hunted and how both exist within us.”

Fascinating! We just LOVE how she's constantly exploring different facets of herself through her music!

The album will be released in September of 2011, and will be supported by a just-announced tour sharing the same name as the album, which will kick off in Helsinki on September 28th!

Oh, hell no! We are NOT missing this one!

So excited!

Coldplay Is NOT Making A Concept Album!

Filed under: Music MinuteColdplay

coldplay-is-not-working-on-concept-album

We don't care what it is, so long as it's GOOD!

Despite previously announcing that the group was working on a concept album, Chris Martin is now claiming that his band, Coldplay's follow-up to 2008's Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends has consistent themes, but that's it!

He explains:

"[It's about] love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don't like… It's supposed to be about life - the good stuff and the bad stuff. Everything. It also has a lot of uplifting stuff, but it's not a 'concept album.'"

Drummer Will Champion elaborates:

"There's a phrase which my wife told me from a book, I can't remember which book, but a man is asked, 'Are you married?' And he says, 'Yes, of course I'm married. I have a wife, kids, the whole catastrophe'. Catastrophe just means something big and seismic but not necessarily bad. It's all about embracing the whole thing. Appreciating the good and bad and realizing it's all part of life."

It sounds like they've put a lot of thought into this one, so we're pretty psyched!

We're very curious to hear how their sound has evolved as they've developed this one!

What do U think?? Are U excited for new Coldplay??

Coldplay Has A Concept Album In The Works!

Filed under: Music MinuteColdplay

coldplay-announces-upcoming-concept-album

Inneresting! We're looking forward to this one!

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin recently revealed that the band's as-yet-untitled upcoming work will be a concept album, with a specific theme running throughout each of the tracks!

He explains:

"It's from the point of view of two people who are a bit lost. Two like-minded outsiders who meet in a very difficult environment and therefore have a journey together. It's a concept album but it's supposed to be very personal within a big framework. Does that make sense? I'm so lucky that we have that group, in as much as there are a lot of people who don't like us in the world, but there would be a lot more without this filtering system. Think of the rubbish that doesn't get out, if you don't like the stuff that does."

Nice!

We think that if anyone can pull this off, it's them! We LOVE that they continue to grow and experiment with different ideas and sounds in each new album!

What do U think?? Are U excited for new Coldplay??
