|FKA twigs wins big.|
Having dubbed my movie awards the CinSpecs earlier this year, I've named my music awards the SoundSpecs. I've made images for each category, and they look similar to my CinSpec design. In addition, I've made images for (and a few revisions to) my 2012 and 2013 SoundSpecs if you want to check them out.
Note: There are a couple of nominated songs that were released prior to 2014, but they weren't released as singles until this year. Also, you can click on the images to enlarge them.
Great to see Lazaretto and True Blue in the rock album top 2! Heading to youtube to check out Saved The Day by College.ReplyDelete
I love that you have Best Cover category, going to listen to those over the weekend. This year, my fav cover is Johnny and Mary by Bryan Ferry & Todd Terje, which I think improves on the original by Robert Palmer
Hope you found a few tracks you liked, Chris! I'll have to check out that cover.Delete
The "Mad World" cover isn't even the full song, but I love it so much. I could've put Nina Nesbitt's "Chocolate" cover in last year's lineup, but I nominated her for her performance at Transmitter earlier this year instead of her BBC Radio one in 2013.
Great choices! Love that Mad World won Best Cover, I really liked that version. I'm curious, what do you think of Fiona Apple, Arcade Fire & Florence + the Machine? They're my current favourite artists, I'd be interested to know what you thought of their music.ReplyDelete
Also, I listened to the full album of FKA twigs. Damn, that's one great album. I really enjoyed it!
Thanks! So glad you love that Mad World cover too.Delete
I still need to explore some of Fiona Apple's and Arcade Fire's early work, but I love what I've heard from all 3 artists. In fact, Fiona Apple wins a 2012 SoundSpec, and I nominated Arcade Fire last year. I linked them at the top of the post if you're interested. ;)
Yay! I love FKA twigs' album so much!
Love these! I have so much I need to listen to. I love that you have a best cover category!ReplyDelete
Thanks man! Ha, I still have stuff I wanted to check out beforehand. It's a nice side project to work on throughout the year. Oh, I love hunting down covers for that category. It leads to some interesting things, like Kings of Leon winning last year for their cover of Robyn's "Dancing on My Own".Delete
I think you should ad Jealous Gods by Poets of The Fall to the mix! :PReplyDelete
I just listened to it, but I still wouldn't nominate it anywhere. :/Delete
