Review Riot: A Hospital For Souls

After releasing The Trials and becoming a huge internet sensation for a lot of us, Rhiannon, - who is better known as Antoinette to her fans - has finally released her sophomore album, A Hospital For Souls, which happens to be just as brilliant as the first, and with their beautiful lyrics and soothing music, both albums have managed to convey the very essence of what it is to have mental illness. While The Trials talks about broken hearts and broken minds in general, A Hospital For Souls relates a story of a girl who passes over into a hospital, with no knowledge whatsoever of her death. The music has a somewhat indie sound, a sound I believe deserves more merit than most musicians out there, as it has been recorded and distributed straight from Rhiannon’s house. The lyrics manage to convey an incredibly complex and touching story in just fourteen songs, and the music manages to help relax your mind, which it’s soft guitar chords and even softer drumbeats, and that’s all tied together with Rhiannon’s voice singing about the things closest to her heart. It’s a story worth listening to, even if the music isn’t to your taste, because it’s a story that almost everyone could relate to. You can listen to and download A Hospital For Souls here.

CQD (Come Quickly Distress) - A Review by Cathy Maddox

I wish I was born beautiful
 
I found myself crying my eyes out while listening to Antoinette & the Kings Men's new song, 'CQD'. It stands for 'Come Quickly Distress', and I think it's based on the Titanic based on the tags. (I forgot what she told me about it)
It is a very haunting piece of art that I found seriously mesmerizing. Maybe it was the fact it…

Eight important factlets about the new Keane Release

"Some of the songs continue in the trajectory of the last Keane album, so 'Your Love' (which has touches of 'Early Winter') is quite electrical and 'Stop For A Minute' (featuring a rap from K'Naan who manages to rhyme 'females' with 'e-mails' thus putting this song on a level with Pixie Lott's 'Cry Me Out' in that respect and that respect alone) sits well alongside something like 'Spiralling'."

9/10 Review of 'The First Days of Spring' on Stereo Subversion

"Second albums can be somewhat crucial, especially to a band that has already garnered some attention. Critics can speak of the “sophomore slump,” where a band with a decent debut leaves fans disappointed, be it because of too much evolution too quickly, or just a mailed in, re-hash of the original formula. Of course, sometimes bands get it right, and Noah and the Whale leaves little room for argument that they have done just that on The First Days of Spring."

New York Times Reviews Noah and the Whale Live Performance

"The title song of its current album - "The First Days of Spring" (Cherrytree), a promise of renewal based only on "hoping that one day you may come back" - the coda rang with piano chords like a buildup by Bruce Springstreen's E Street Band."

La Roux in The New York Times

Check out the New York Times' review of La Roux's live performance in NYC earlier this week.



"The self-titled La Roux debut album, released in the United States last month (it was a hit in England this summer), is dizzying fun. Ms. Jackson, who recalls early Madonna, or even Neneh Cherry, sounds coy even when she's mad, but thanks to the lush, throbbing arrangements, she is never chilly, never off-putting"…

NME 9/10 Review for 'The First Days of Spring'

"The six minute plus title track sets the unhurried pace, with spiraling, blockbusting indie-folk that's big on the cinematics; handy, seeing as, like Tommy and Ziggy, there is also a film to accompany the whole record."

The Guardian - Hail, Hail, Rock'n'Roll

5 Star review from The Sunday Times

"All too rarely, an album arrives whose impact comes not from the clarity with which it communicates but through the sense of haunted mystification it leaves the listener with."

"There's a feature-length film to go with the CD, but this album is visual enough. It is also a masterpiece. That, at… Continue

La Roux Review in Rolling Stone

"Elly Jackson is the perfect London pop star of the moment: a 21-year-old loud mouth bossypants with appallingly awesome hair and a vacant stare of a voice. Along with co-writer and fellow synth dude Ben Langmaid, she's ruling UK radio with plashy dance hits about sex and… Continue
