Week CD: Laura Vane & The Vipertones – Sugar Fix
Deze hele week is het album Sugar Fix van Laura Vane & The Vipertones de Radio 6 Soul & Jazz Week CD. In alle programma’s overdag hoor je een track van het album voorbij komen.

Het is het tweede album van het collectief waarvan de samenwerking tussen de Nederlandse producer Phil Martin (Jazzinvaders), Ton van der Kolk (Soul Snatchers) en de Britse zangeres Laura Vane de basis is. Martin ontdekte de stem van Laura bij toeval en haalde haar naar Nederland om één, hooguit twee nummers op te nemen. Nu is er dus al het tweede album.

Sugar Fix
En het is een afwisselend album geworden. Pop, Soul, Funk, eerlijke en oprechte teksten van Laura gecombineerd met muzikale elegantie van The Vipertones. Dit alles maakt Sugar Fix tot een toegankelijke en dansbare plaat, waarbij ze de energieke sound van het debuutalbum uit 2009 grotendeels hebben vast weten te houden.

Laura Vane & The Vipertones
Laura Vane & The Vipertones is een samenwerking tussen de Britse zangeres Laura Vane, die al eerder samenwerkte met The Streets en Gnarles Barkley, Phil Martijn, ook bekend van de Jazzinvaders, en Ton van der Kolk, die ook actief in is de band Soul Snatchers. Het titelloze debuutalbum uit 2009 bracht de band een bijzonder druk tourschema en veel optredens op festivals verspreid obver heel Europa.

CATSELF is on Labtones
It took me a long time because I was invited to this nice site already a while ago. I am here, eventually!

To everyone who finds me here - I hope you will enjoy my songs! All of these songs were recorded in my home studio with a lot of love and joy.

I have a self-produced "Some Berries" album, a collection of 11 songs which I have been selling at shows. The songs that are in my player are on it. It is more like a basket of berries than an album. Not all of the songs grew on the same bush. But it doesn't sound bad and has a nice colourful booklet with lyrics. Soon I will begin working on my first professional album. And I want to make it with just as much love and joy as these home-recorded songs because without it it just wouldn't be right.

If you like what you have found here, please join my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/CATSELF/267103087920 - all my updates appear there the quickest! And of course welcome to visit my website: http://www.catself.com/ - and it has a guestbook, so don't be shy! :)

I also have a new project on SellaBand where I am raising funds for touring when my album is ready. Whatever sum I raise there, will be used for that. Welcome to check it out if you are interested, and if you like this sort of thing and would like to help me tour, perhaps you would like to support my project. There are many different things I offer in return - it is one way of getting the download of "Some Berries" (and the SellaBand-funded album AND the next album - already written - when they are ready!). You can also be in my song and the red guitar which is in my photo can be yours - but you can read all about it here: http://www.sellaband.com/catself/.

I am not very e-chatty but I do my best to always answer messages. Sometimes I am late because recently it has got a bit difficult! I travel rather often and play shows not only in Finland. So, please check my Gigs now and then - I might be playing near you! You never know!

What else is there left to say in this first ever News bit but

Meow!!

Japan
I had a very sweet summer spent in Japan, and made a strong impression on me. The kindness and generosity of the people, and the beauty of the nature was stunning. Now as I watch the devastation and on going nuclear crisis, I feel much pain for them. Sentinel is doing a fundraiser for Japan sponsored by NoisePop in San Francisco, California on April, 21. We hope you come and support these lovely people- all money goes to Japan relief. Buy your ticket here: http://japanaidsf.wordpress.com/the-show/

WakingUgly All Over Again
Melbourne pop/rock duo WakingUgly announced today their plans to complete the recording of their second five-track album by the end of this month.

The act’s lead singer and general manager, Lydia Gardner, will be finishing vocal tracks and mixing at Altona’s Airwaves studio with producer Michael Zammit.

Zammit produced the duo’s debut EP, Say Something Sweet, released last November under local independent label Future of Vintage (FOV) Records.

Since their 2010 debut, WakingUgly have attracted listeners from all over the globe who are fans of other international pop acts such as Katy Perry, Pink and Miley Cyrus and have also received high praise and five-star reviews of their work from industry professionals, both local and international.

In a review in Melbourne street magazine, Beat, Briony Jones said of the effort, “Say Something Sweet is pop as it hasn’t been done for a long time and it ultimately puts any mainstream version of the genre to shame – finally there is a band that can do the genre justice.” (Beat magazine, Issue 1244, pg96)

Gardner said that she hoped they would continue to get such positive reactions with the next five songs. “Every track on the first album had its own identity, and that is even more so the case with these ones. As with the first album, we’re trying to find that perfect balance between familiarity and uniqueness. We don’t want a bunch of songs that sound the same as each other, nor do we want to upset the listener by changing our overall sound too much from song to song. I think achieving that harmony has become our niche in a sense.”

Still in the midst of promoting their first album, WakingUgly have no immediate plans for their second release, preferring to focus on rehearsing their live show at this time, which is where fans will hear the new songs first.

Gardner’s co-writer and guitarist for WakingUgly, Darren Pace, revealed their plans to work with similar acts in non-traditional venues in the near future.
Pace stated, “We’re working on putting on small concerts, rather than doing regular pub gigs. We want to give our audiences a professional performance in a comfortable, all-ages environment.”

WakingUgly believe they set a standard for themselves at their EP release party held at Eurotrash Bar in town last November, a four hour event featuring “Gender-Bender” MC Queen La Diva, a special acoustic performance from up-and-comer Jo Dawson, free food and drinks as well as a raffle with an iPod Nano touch as first prize.

Although organizing an event of this level takes a lot more money and effort, Pace and Gardner are determined to make it work, in the hope of eventually gaining a reputation as one of Melbourne’s best live bands.

Gardner explained, “We had so many compliments regarding how much fun the release party was and how good the band looked and sounded. That’s because we used great equipment, skilled operators, and the entire event was well planned and executed. The last thing we want to do now is jeopardize that brilliant first impression we made by just doing some boring old gig in some boring old pub.”

Say Something Sweet is available on iTunes and other digital retailers.
Hard copy CDs are available on the band’s website www.wakingugly.com
