What a great band. Danish band Turboweekend are a three piece band from Copenhagen and consists of Martin Petersen (Drums), Silas Bjerregaard (Vocals) and Morten Køie (Bass). They play dark synth pop, electro-rock with a soulful twist. “Ghost Of A Chance” is their second album and is a wonderful collection of addictive pop songs. From the beginning, the catchy single “Trouble Is” over the dark “Sweet Jezebel”, the optimistic “Holiday”, the phenomenal single “After Hours” to “Almost There”, there is not a weak song on the whole album.

The band is currently on the road and touring Europe. The album will be out next week in Europe and the US. Don`t miss it, one of the best albums of this year!

2 years ago they came out of nowhere. The american pop-rock band One Republic got a feature on Timbaland`s album and out of a sudden they stormed the charts worldwide with their single “Apologise”, which became one of the biggest hits in 2007. Their album “Dreaming Out Loud” was a huge success as well with further hit singles and Ryan Tedder became the most requested songwriter of our time. He wrote “Bleeding Love” for Leona Lewis, “Halo” for Beyonce, “Already Gone” for Kelly Clarkson and “Battlefield” for Jordin Sparks, just to name a few of his recent hits. He is a genius songwriter who writes excellent pop tunes.

Now he is back with his band and they release their new album “Waking Up” in mid November. There are 2 new singles before the album release, “All The Right Moves” in the US and Europe and in Germany the song “Secrets” will be released as first single, cos it`s the title track for the movie “Zweiohrküken” with Til Schweiger.

Here you can listen to the new song “All The Right Moves”:

This weeks album of the week comes from one of the most promising and interesting new female voices this year: Paloma Faith from London. In every song on her debut album you can realise that she has been working as an actress. Big emotions, lots of strings and fantastic melodies that will melt down every pop music lovers heart.

The miscellaneous artist is not only a good actor, she has a unique voice and a fantastic style. Her music is compared to Amy Winehouse and Duffy, but she has her own style and looks. If you see her videos it is no wonder, that she loves David Lynch and Tim Burton.

Her debut album “Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful” contains 10 wonderful songs, besides the already released singles “Stone Cold Sober” and “New York”, you should listen to “Smoke & Mirrors”, “Romance Is Dead”, “Stargazer”, “Play On” and the great title track. The only thing is, the album is too short with 37 minutes. But Paloma did also a song on the new Basement Jaxx album for people who want to hear more from her.

I saw Paloma at a showcase in Berlin a few weeks ago and was fascinated by her stage presence, she is a real star! She will be on tour in Europe soon, in Germany she plays in November, Berlin on the 28th, Hamburg 29th and Cologne, December 1st. Don`t miss her!
