Superlatones: The Femme Fatale

Lately, it seems that we are hearing more and more from new and unexpected partnerships between artists of different genres. This is why, through Superlatones, we are creating our very own directory—a musical wish-list, if you will—of artists who have yet to join the collaborative bandwagon.

This week, we feature two artists who credit their popularity just as much to their music as to the persona they command.  With their distinct style, sultry voices and mysterious airs, these women would have been the perfect leading ladies to the film noir era of the ’40’s. Are you ready to solve a mystery? Then follow us into the lives of this week’s femme fatales…

The Dynamic Duo:
Lana Del Rey
and Paloma Faith

New York’s Lana Del Rey, born Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, began her career under the moniker Lizzy Grant. The singer-songwriter later changed her name to Lana Del Ray for the release of her single “Video Games,” which became an instant success.  Her latest album Born To Die was released early this year with mixed reviews from critics and fans alike.

From hippie to grunge to today’s infamous hipster, subcultures are an inevitable part of modern society. While some of them fade or evolve into new subcultures, the influences these movements have on people are certainly still evident. In fact, they never truly go away. That’s why this week we are celebrating the hidden remnant’s of hippie culture, with two artists that would have fit right into the 1960s.

The Dynamic Duo:
Cloud Control
and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Cloud Control is a psychedelic rock band from New South Wales, Australia. Although they have yet to blow up in America, the group has gained much success in their home country, winning the Australian Music Prize in 2011 as well as Record of the Year and Best Live Musical Act from the Sydney Music, Arts and Culture Awards. Their debut album Bliss Release has been described as a blend of organic folk, colorful synths and indie rock influences.

Ah, the 90′s. A simpler time: the era of overalls and mood rings, rollerblading and Cartoon Network. As 2012 soldiers on, we here at OurStage can’t help but grow nostalgic for the good ol’ days. And as much as our music tastes have evolved, there’s really nothing like a throwback to the old jams you would pop into your boom boxes, casette players or walkmans. This week, we’re sending a tribute to those iconic tunes.

The Dynamic Duo:
The Cranberries
and Sixpence None The Richer

Irish band The Cranberries formed in 1989 and rose to fame in the 1990s with their debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? Popular songs by the band include “Linger” and “Zombie,” which both made it onto the Billboard Hot 100 as well as many other charts across the globe. More recently, the group came out of a six-year hiatus to tour the world, and released their sixth studio album, Roses.

It has long been said that music is a universal pleasure—an idea we can all appreciate and understand regardless of creed or country. Here at OurStage, we like to keep this philosophy alive by welcoming artists from all over the world, because there is no better way to grow and mature in sound than to share your passion with fellow musicians. This week, “Superlatones” celebrates this thought by bringing you a dynamic duo all the way from the UK to share a little inspiration from across the pond.

Dry the River

Superlatones: Best Hidden Talent

Lately, it seems that we are hearing more and more from new and unexpected partnerships between artists of different genres. This is why, through Superlatones, we are creating our very own directory—a musical wish-list, if you will—of artists who have yet to join the collaborative bandwagon.

As musicians, we come to understand music in a myriad of different ways. Depending on what instrument we play or value most, we tend to tune in to specific parts of a song: a drum solo, a complicated guitar riff, a fun bass line. This week, we feature artists known for their catchy tunes and great production quality; but instead of analyzing the composition of their songs, we are focusing on a different aspect of their music that the rest of the world seems to take for granted: their voice.

The Dynamic Duo:
Foster the People
and Gotye

Superlatones: The Lone Wolf

We think it is safe to say that Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes are two of the greatest bands of our time. With Bon Iver’s recent GRAMMY win for Best New Artist (despite more than three years of success in the underground folk scene) and Fleet Foxes’ self-titled album dubbed Billboard’s Critic’s Choice Album of The Year in 2008, one can’t deny the raw talent of these musicians. However, it is inevitable that the efforts of some members of these talented acts may disappear into the sidelines, falling into obscurity save for the few fans who are willing to seek them out. This week, we celebrate these individuals by bringing their solo projects into the limelight.

S. Carey

Now and then we will find a band whose sound transports us to another world. A band that makes us want to forget all our troubles and just dive into the music. With their indie-pop beats and dreamy melodies, this week’s dynamic duo is sure to do just that—so hang on to your helmets and prepare for blast-off.

With all the bubblegum pop and cookie cutter artists out there in the mainstream music scene, it is no wonder that our ears can sometimes get a little overwhelmed. We all know that the production process is extremely important, and with the new rise in the electronic wave, dance music has become extremely popular. Still, it’s nice to just get away from it all now and then. This week, Superlatones features a dynamic duo that brings us back to basics and reminds us of the importance of undeniable, unedited musical talent.

A.A. Bondy and The Avett Brothers

We live in a small world. Globalization has become one of the most important factors of our lives today, and technology is making it that much easier. Where as fifty years ago it took an operator and a half hour’s wait to make a phone call abroad, people today can just pop open their laptops and get on Skype for free. But what is most important about the new “friends-without-borders” approach the world is adopting today is the way it brings people together. This week, we are celebrating that very attitude with our latest dynamic duo.

The Dynamic Duo:
Kina Grannis and Paolo Nutini
