O

There are 2 O's: 1. O is a Finnish black metal band formed in 2000 in Pietarsaari, Finland. O is signed with Woodcut Records. Style-wise, the band changed from raw blackmetal to somewhat more industrial influenced blackmetal using samples and electronic effects. This makes the musical style somewhat similar to ...And Oceans or their later incarnation Havoc Unit. O also features members from ...And Oceans. Current-Line-up: - Petri Seikkula (...And Oceans) - Deathbound (ex-The True Black Dawn) - Sami Latva (...And Oceans, Deathbound, Ghost Guard, Rotten Sound) Albums: O/Flauros (2000) Split CD: O, Flauros O (2004), EP O.B.C (2005) Split CD: O, Black Dawn, Enochian Crescent Official websites: O at MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/otheband1/ O at Woodcut Records: http://www.woodcutrecords.com/o.html 2. O is the moniker of Mika Vainio - member of Pan Sonic. O cross-hatches between shades of the original Pan Sonic heavy industrial sound, with the more delicate tones of his explorative ambience heard on the fabulous ‘Kantamoinen’ album, in classic Vainio style, marrying the two and birthing a perfect balance of Teutonic techno darkness and seasoned Finnish solitude from his base in Berlin.

Backgrounder: The Complete Chet Baker Sings

Backgrounder: The Complete Chet Baker Sings

Source: JazzWax by Marc Myers

The first songs trumpeter Chet Baker recorded on which he sang were I Fall in Love Too Easily and The Thrill is Gone in October 1953. What struck listeners then and now was his vulnerable articulation, the humid romanticism and relaxed androgyny of his voice. Previously, no male singer had approached vocalizing this way. What made many of these vocal tracks especially precious was his tender trumpet or flugelhorn that followed his vocal. After listening, one realizes that his approach ...

Is Corinne's Tickled Pink The New Black This Summer?

Source: Corinne Mammana

Evocative and provocative, Tickled Pink, the latest single release from Corinne, out now and available everywhere, infuses a modern spin on bossa jazz. She flirts with a pop sensibility, as well as her lyrical romantic subject, yet maintains the integrity of the traditional style. The song is both an instant throwback to another time and a modern classic. With just one listen, your toes feel equally buried in the sandy beaches of Rio ’24 or ’64. Corinne is an old ...
