Los Angeles' Koreatown sensation Far East Movement is doing it’s best rendition of producing music that’s purely fun again. The best way to simply put it is “feel-good” music. FM's beats have a light funky vibe, and the lyrics exhibit a care-free attitude that's frequently heard in that of Lil Wayne or even a onetime Movement collaborator/DXnext fellow, Wiz Khalifa. With their latest single “Like A G6” approaching two million YouTube plays, following last year's “Girls On The Dance… Continue

Todays blog is all about Spark aka Jess Morgan.
I went to see her play at the Macbeth in East London tonight after seeing her supporting Marina and the Diamonds the other week, and she absolutely blew me away.
She has the sweetest voice, almost like a sweet teenage non haggard Amy Winehouse? Actually that's probably a really bad comparison, but never mind.
Every song could be a Top 10 in the UK, especially this tune called "Scream". Check her out… Continue

"Not being able to put out another record until another five years after touring seemed uninspiring to me- so it's in an album in parts. It's a way of breaking it up a bit. It allowed me to record and tour at the same time. So that was the main reason for doing it – a practical solution. It influenced a lot of the visuals and relates to how people consume music these days, I like shorter albums, I don't think they have to be like 15 songs now."

I woke up this morning missing a lot of my friends from back up north, so I got on a train, and 5 hours later, we were prepping the BBQ in their back garden!
England won their world cup match today, and the whole country had amazing weather, so the atmosphere over here is buzzing. I for one have had a great day back up in Nottingham in the house I was planning on moving into before I moved to London.
I'm going to get up early and go see my parents tomorrow, then back down… Continue

So I can't really go into much detail about what we did today. We were rehearsing for Glastonbury and we had some people pop in to lend us a hand...I'm not mentioning anymore as I want it to be a surprise!
The weather was great though, and lovely Yamaha sent us some more drums which always makes it a good day. Jamiroqui were next door today and Mark Ronson was downstairs. An all star rehearsal space today.
To be perfectly honest, the most exciting part of my day was the… Continue

Travel days. How exciting.
Its taken us about 12 hours to get back from Southside Festival, but I'm now in a cab back to my house.
I watched a documentary about the band behind the majority of Mo Town recordings. Such talented musicians, but very sad to see how badly they were ripped off..
The highlight of the trip back was on the ferry earlier. In England we had a kids TV show called Rainbow with big stuffed animals as the main characters, and a presenter… Continue

I feel a bit like Boy Meets World writing these blogs. I hear myself say them in the same way he narrates the show..the girl in that was really cute, I wonder what she looks like now?
Anyway we just finished playing at Southside Festival in Germany. Supposedly it had rained since Wednesday morning so the site was so covered in mud, cars getting dragged out of the car park by tractors and all! For a crowd to still have that much enthusiasm after being p*ssed on for 5 days, is quite… Continue

So I'm stood side stage at Hurricane Festival in Germany watching a band who all have animal masks on, all wearing different coloured tuxedo s. Sounds weird already right? That not to mention the male and female clowns doing interprative dance next to them...oh, and the mime artists...Germans.
Someone decided it would be a great idea to put us on at 1am today...1am! Come on, what are you supposed to do at a cold, rainy festival from 7pm till 1am?! I'm more sensitive now then I was… Continue

The World Cup. What an odd thing it is.
In England, everyone puts up their flags, paints their faces and gets overly patriotic, but sadly, this comes hand in hand with people becoming massive drunk, lairy idiots.
I tend to not go out a huge amount when I get off tour, mostly because we don't ever get to be at home when we are working, but my girlfriend and I decided to go to "The Flowerpot" in Camden to watch the England match. 5 minutes in, a group of 'lairy lads' started… Continue

It's hard to write about a day where I've not done a great deal. I did have a good day though, in bed 'til 3, watched "Fear and Loathing.." And my flatmate made Brownies!
But that's not exciting to read is it? I promise it will get more exciting when we're back on the road!

London really is beautiful in the sunshine. I'm currently stood outside Topshop on Oxford Street waiting for Mickey so we can go and blag some free sunglasses from Ray Ban. We really are so cheeky, as Mickey got 2 free pairs at the weekend, and I got a pair of Ray Bans and some free glasses (thank you Foureyes) earlier today!! Still, they're the perks of being in a band!!
Quite a slow day in Camp La Roux today. Elly is just chilling at home, as is Mike, and I'm just pottering about… Continue
