Duchess Says * In A Fung Day T! (cd 2011)

This has been my most looked-forward-to album since I heard that Duchess Says was working on a new album. I adore their 2008 debut album and a while ago the band started putting messages out on Facebook that there were new songs. Two have been pre-released, one alright track and a great one. A few weeks ago the label accepted preorders and coming back from holidays I had “In A Fung Day T!” in my mailbox. The album opens with a great noisy punk sound, very promising! This Canadian band goes from noisy ‘artpunk’ to electropop and I especially like the weird electropunk sound. The album sounds more of a mix between punk and electropop than before and it is different from the debut. It is less ‘extreme’ than the debut and pretty short too (33 minutes) I have heard the cd a couple of times now and however I find the debut cd better, I like “In A Fung Day T!” a lot. If you want something weird and different, Duchess Says may be for you too! The best news is, they are touring too!

Most played music in 2013

Last.fm keeps track of what I listen to. I “scrobble” most of what I listen to, so this is fairly accurate. Not “scrobbled” is what I hear in the car. In any case, just to give you an idea, here are my most played artists in the last 12 months: 1 A Place to Bury [...]
