Yes, you are seeing double. We have two live gig videos for today because we were remiss in not posting them every day this week. This time, it’s Charlie Simpson, who has now entered the Guinness World Records for the World’s Coldest Concert after playing a very special Jagermeister Ice Cold Gig in the remote village of Oymyakon, Siberia.

In order to set the world record, Charlie had to play his set for a full 15 minutes, whilst only taking up to 30 second breaks between songs. What a trooper. Watch the video below.

Album Review: Charlotte Hatherley – The Deep Blue

Charlotte HatherlyYou may already know Charlotte Hatherley as the former guitarist of Northern Irish rockers Ash, but now, having been solo for nearly five years and releasing two albums in that time, she is becoming a bit of a rock sensation herself.  Although her debut album didn’t make the biggest impact on the music scene, her second album “The Deep Blue” is simply outstanding.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Charlotte is a different person from whoever was on the first record. The Deep Blue is a massive improvement and the album doesn’t rely on one or two hits. A funked up sound with splashes of gritty guitars and the odd synth really modernise Charlotte’s material.

The Deep Blue sounds like a complete record and every track contributes something. “Kim Wilde” was by far the best track from before The Deep Blue but now it has a few strong contenders. “Very Young” is by far my favourite song, taking nothing away from the others, it has everything a good rock hit needs. Guitar effects and an infectious chorus make it stand out from the first listen while the track “Wounded Sky” shows Charlotte’s mellow side with a gentle tempo and acoustic bliss. “Behave” and “Siberia” are another two tracks to listen to and they were good enough to attract the attention of Luke Smith who has made two awesome remixes, thrusting Charlotte into the club world.

The Deep Blue is soft and sweet but gritty and tough at the same time. Mellow ballads can turn into distortion demonised anthems with a click of Charlotte’s fingers, and as long as she maintains this standard, a bright career is surely on the cards.
