Papa Vs Pretty take a stand to save Great Barrier Reef..!

Last night Papa vs Pretty released a video to raise awareness of the Great Barrier Reef dredging, a cause very close to their hearts and you can get involved too...


The band members have collected & edited official Great Barrier Reef footage & the video includes the album track To Do from White Deer Park, their new album out Feb 21.

Gus, Bassist from the band says "Hi everyone, here's something a little new for us. We're not usually a political band, but we do think it's hugely important that everyone thinks about and engages with the issues that are important. We've got a song on our new record called To Do which is about exactly that, and we thought it was especially relevant to the decision that's being made on the dredging of the Great Barrier Reef on Friday the 31st, so we made a video for it with some footage we borrowed from a group of biologists in Cairns who run a company called Adventure for Change. If you care about the issue, feel free to send the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority a message/sign a petition via the links in the video description. Hope you enjoy!"

          WANT TO DO SOMETHING?

You can show your support to the band and the Great Barrier Reef by spreading the word and signing this petition today..!

New Video Alert - R5 - (I Can't) Forget About You


 Everybody knows the Disney logo. It's a couple of very adorable mouse ears. But it should really be a sword. A double-edged sword. Having the word Disney attached to you promises success, but also prevents it as well. You're guaranteed the love of young tweens ages 10-14 for a few years, but once those girls actually grow up to date real boys, getting the world of music to take you seriously is nigh impossible. So how does the latest product of the mouse fair? Put on your ears and find out...

New Video Alert - Paloma Faith - Can't Rely On You

Get ready for some new soul music with the return of Paloma Faith


Paloma is back with lead single Can’t Rely On You which was written & produced for Ms Faith by Pharrell Williams who also appears on the track. The pair met when Paloma attended the Met Ball at New York’s Metropolitan Museum and Pharrell approached her by singing her song New York to her. He then took her ‘phone, put his number in and said ‘I’m ready to work’

The song is the first to appear from Paloma’s forthcoming album A Perfect Contradiction which, like the single, shows a distinct return to her early soul-girl roots. Influences as diverse as classic Stax, Phil Spector, 1960’s girl groups, ‘70’s disco and early 1980’s soul come together on an album that is the most upbeat Paloma has ever made.

With a funky bass beat and soul style jam, the track is very different from her previous emotional dark moving soul jazz that was on her last album Fall From Grace. Check it out below.

Paloma Faith’s brand new single Can’t Rely On You is due out on 23rd February..! 





New Video Alert - Michael Paynter - Weary Stars

In the last season of The Voice in Australia there was one contestant who we were immediately drawn to for several reasons. Firstly his remarkable talent – a voice so strong, controlled and professional didn’t seem to fit in with the other contestants. Secondly his look – he owned it – even if you didn’t like his look you had to admit that it was all his. Thirdly and most importantly, we recognised him.

Review - The Voice UK..!

Living on the otherside of the world here in Australia we often miss out on some of the incredible talent on shows we love like The Voice and X-Factor around the world. Whilst we’re always addicted the Aussie versions we sometimes get an international version – but mostly from the USA – we’ve had American Idol & the US version of The Voice here. One we’ve always heard great things from is The Voice UK - and thanks to the wonders of the internet, this year we’re totally engrossing ourselves in it! With the first episode of the new season showing a few days there was one other reason we had to watch it – our very own Kylie Minogue is a coach!!! So what did we think about the first episode of The Voice UK?

Remix Alert - Britney Spears - Work Bitch - DJ Dan Murphy Mashup Remix

Some of you maybe aware we are fond of a bit of Britney Spears, so were thrilled to be sent this amazing new remix of Work Bitch exclusively for our readers...

Introducing - The Fleet..!


Remember these names: Mikey, Dean, Will, Greg, and Jack. Separately, they each possess massive musical talent, determination, and charisma. Together, they form The Fleet. And you're about to fall in love with them...

If our words (and the ridiculously adorable picture above) aren't enough to convince you, we've got a whole fleet of reasons to get you on board. We'll even limit the amount of fleet-related puns and keep this review on course

Well, we'll try....

Now the first thing you're likely thinking is "tell me more about this boy band". We've written before about how the title of "boy band" sometimes prevents people from taking legitimate talent seriously. You can blame the 80s and 90s for this, as while we love old school heartthrobs like New Kids on the Block and Menudo, being attractive was really the major job requirement back then.

Luckily, a post-2000 world has brought us attractive boys that can not only sing well, but can also play their own instruments and even write their own songs. Look no further than the new leaders of the world, One Direction, for proof (we hear the UN is making Liam and the boys a nameplate as we speak...)

And yet it's still rare to find bands with that much charisma who've gotten their start doing the hard work of playing local bars and paying their dues. And that brings us to The Fleet.

What started as a duo between Mikey Jones and Jack Postlethwaite has evolved into a major musical force. Footage of Mikey and Jack reeks of artistic synergy. Jack's guitar work is inspired, and Mikey is not only a talented songwriter, but also has a voice that's vital to make it big in music. Lots of guys can sing, but this one has a quality to his voice that is intriguing and unlike any you've heard before. 

Quite simply, Mikey's mesmerizing vocal tone should limit any comparisons and help them stand out as a group worth noting.  

As the guys added Dean Snell, Will Graham, and Greg Joy, they gained more and more experience touring in their homeland of Chester. And in case you weren't aware, the world has a special affinity for British boy bands. That accent is a universal aphrodisiac, and has been ever since our grandmothers were selling all of their earthly belongings for a Beatles record.

But again, let's just toss the words "boy band" aside for a moment. Coldplay? A bunch of guys. Also an amazing band with an incredible ability to evoke emotion. U2? Guys, guys, guys. But that kind of longevity doesn't come without exceptional talent. And The Fleet is honestly more similar to those bands than say, The Wanted.

So get to know them in the video for Get Up and Run below, and head over to their Facebook for some free downloads as they prep their first album. We've already bought our tickets to board The Fleet, and we expect a long and entertaining voyage. And apparently a never-ending supply of puns..!

SnapCacklePop Music Awards 2013 - POP Album Of The Year



It’s the big one! The album of the year is the defining album for the whole of 2013. There were some big pop releases this year from Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Icona Pop and Little Boots, however will Beyoncé' last minute slap across the music industries face with her self titled album win another SCP Award? Or will the boys come through like Daft Punk, One Direction or will Justin Timberlake's two albums pick up the main prize. And the nominations are...

SnapCacklePop Music Awards - Cackle Worst Pop 2013..!

2013 luckily did not have a lot of really bad tracks for the year but there were still a few that we avoided like the plague! Not everyone would agree with the nominations and some of them did quite well on the charts but the final two we're sure most will agree were pretty cringe worthy. So who are the winners of Worst Pop 2013? First, the nominees....

New Single Alert - Lea Michele - Battlefield


 If Lea Michele's character on Glee is known for anything, it's persistence (sometimes annoyingly so). When things don't go Rachel's way, she may have a mini-meltdown, but she'll eventually get right back out there and belt out a Celine Dion ballad that brings the house down. But this time it's Lea, not Rachel, who needs to get back on that horse. After a lead single that failed to catch on, she's very quickly put out the next track off her upcoming debut album, Louder. And you're not ready for how good it is...
