Rizzle Kicks gig at Liverpool O2 Academy

So, Grania and I went to watch Rizzle Kicks last weekend at the O2 Academy in Liverpool and it was fab-u-lous! I absolutely love RK and I’ve been to watch them once before so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed, I know they’d put on a great show and I was not wrong! I love how they just put so much energy in to what they do and basically just have a whole lot of fun on stage! We missed the first support act but watched Bang Bang Bang and I was pleasantly surprised! We both have never heard of Natalie before but her music was just so ‘funky and fresh’ that we was loving it! I’m definitely going to look at what other music she does and I would recommend you look to! I can’t think of who she reminded me of but her music was definitely that little bit different and quirky. Maybe slightly like Marina and the Diamonds but with a twist!
But for Rizzle Kicks they put on a great show jumping about, getting everyone involved… If you want a fun, happy gig to go to we definitely say go to watch them!

Major Lazer

So another album I will have to review is Major Lazer – Free The Universe. This album has just got a mixture of reggae and electronic so for me it is perfect! I love every Bob Marley song going so for me to come across this album last year literately made my year! Okay, I wouldn’t go that far… But it is pretty cool! Each song sounds totally different which I think is hard when it comes to some albums but this one has a mixture of upbeat, crazy and some down right weird tunes! You all have probably heard of ‘Bubble Butt’ ft. Bruno Mars which is probably their most famous song but by far it is not their best (personally I’m not a huge fan of that song, solely because there are others on there 100x better). My ultimate favourites would have to be Jah No Partial, Get Free and Watch Out For This. This album seriously just makes you want to dance so it is perfect if you’re getting ready for a night out! But I would also recommend it for a work out album as well! This album along with Eminem is great music if you need some motivation for when you’re running on the treadmill (who doesn’t need motivation?!) I would recommend this album if you love dance, electronic and reggae music because this album is just all rolled into one! Could life get any better? No I don’t think so!

Me, all ready for Major Lazer at Leeds Festival ’13!

Hype about Haim

Okay, so I thought my first post would be about one of my favourite albums at the moment: Haim – Days Are Gone. Haim are a rock/alternative trio that consists of three sisters from California and my love for them grew in Summer 2013 when I saw them at T in the Park in Scotland (amazing, friendly festival that’s definitely worth a visit) and Leeds Festival (just one word- cerrrrazy!) and it just spiralled from there really. Haim are always compared to the sounds of Fleetwood Mac but I think they have their own individual and funky vibe that just puts you in one “awesome” mood… Thought I’d go all American on you seeing as they’re from Los Angeles. ‘Days Are Gone’ is their debut album but oh boy they have started with a bang! I think this is the only album I was willing to spend over a tenner for! But now it’s in HMV for £4.99… That is one fab-u-lous bargain! Get it quick! My favourite tunes are: Forever, Falling and Let Me Go but honestly all of them I can just listen to again and again.

If you’re looking for some new, edgy music or was wondering what the sudden hype about Haim was about then check out their album you will NOT be disappointed!
