The moment I heard Maja Francis’ siren like voice when she revealed debut electronic pop gem Last Days Of Dancing earlier this year, I was hooked. I’m a huge fan of Kate Bush, I also happen to love Swedish electronic pop very much. It only follows that Maja Francis’ enchanting sound is the perfect confection for me. Today, Maja Francis offers up a spellbinding cover of Billy Joel classic Just The Way You Are, transforming it into a powerful, mystical pop ballad miles away from the original. And it’s magnificent! Let’s re-visit Last Days Of Dancing below, too, while we’re at it. I love it dearly.

OFFICIAL VID: Green Day – Nuclear Family

September 11, 2012

I don’t think we’re going to stop hearing about Green Day on an almost daily basis for a good while with their triple album release just starting up. Today sees another video release and Uno! track from the punk rock veterans. Nuclear Family is a return to their usual rock form with their signature political/social intonations clearly peeking through, even in the very song title itself. The simple video and more subdued track harkens back to material from previous albums.
