Vanyaland: [interview] Yes, we love it: Talking dance music dominance with Icona Pop @ SXSW

Here's the "lost" SXSW interview with Icona Pop, which was slated to air on WFNX. Instead, it lives on at Vanyaland.

A lof of bands went down to SXSW earlier this month looking to generate attention. Others, like Swedish pop duo ICONA POP, hit Austin with the buzz wind already at their backs. Their powderkeg electro-pop banger "I Love It" went from being a catchy-cute Summer Anthem of 2012 to an ubiquitous rallyin...

Michael Marotta interviewed Brett Anderson of The London Suede this morning. "Bloodsports," out next week, is one hell of a comeback record. Just read and listen - "It Starts And Ends With You" playing now on www.wfnx.com

It's virtually impossible not to hold a so-called "comeback record" up against a band's past, and it's useless not to judge Suede's sixth studio effort, Bloodsports, out March 19 on Warner Bros., against the UK rock band's 1990s history. But it's the context of Suede's uneven career that makes this…

BOSS OF ME - THE WORDS

“I look to the stars...”

And you though we posted a young picture of David Jones yesterday. In this detail from a contact sheet of 48 different images, the baby Bowie is pictured at just ten months old.

The wee nipper is undeniably looking to the stars in the selected frames (well, 1947 was the year of the Roswell incident), and that’s our tenuous link to today’s lyric, Boss Of Me, track number nine from The Next Day.

As we’ve suggested previously, we will endeavour to provide a daily marriage of lyrics from The Next Day to images from the upcoming David Bowie is Exhibition at The V&A. http://smarturl.it/vamDBis


Boss Of Me (David Bowie/Gerry Leonard)

Tell me when you’re sad
I wanna make it cool again
I know you’re feeling bad
Tell me when you’re cool again

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me

We fly through the night
The tears on your lips
Life has your mind and soul
It spins on your hips

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me

You look at me and you weep
For the free blue sky
I look to the stars
As they flicker and float in your eyes
And under these wings of steel
The small town dies

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me

First Listen: Suede, 'Bloodsports' : NPR

"Bloodsports," the phenomenal comeback record from Suede, is currently streaming on NPR. We'll also broadcast bits of Michael Marotta's Boston Phoenix Q&A with Suede's Brett Anderson when the album is released here in the US, March 19.

The Britpop band's first album in 11 years is one of the finest comeback albums in recent memory. Brett Anderson sounds as melodramatic and persuasive as ever on Bloodsports, and he can still belt out choruses with the best of them.

Its hard to believe that this record was released 25 years ago today. It feels like just yesterday that I was hearing it for the first time and actually getting to play Big Dipper and share my enthusiasm for Built to Spill with the six listeners still awake in the wee hours of the morning on the much lamented WFNX. The album wears its age well, without a wrinkle or much sign of the two and half decades that have passed since its release. Too bad I can’t say the same.
