Vampire Weekend Modern Vampires of the City Out Now
Vampire Weekend, one of people's favourite indie rock bands in the past 4 years, released their third studio album called "Modern Vampires of the City". The acclaimed new album, released 2 days ago on XL Recordings contains previously released singles "Diane Young" and "Ya Hey".Recorded in various locations, including New York, Los Angeles, Martha's Vineyard and apartments, "Modern Vampires of the City" is an attempt to distance the band from the sound that they presented in their previous album and to express themselves in more experimental sound.
Artaxerxes - the latest Andrej Kljakovic album is out now
We are happy to present you the latest jazz/rock/fusion project of the multitalented musician Andrej Kljakovic, Kljakovic Eklektik Company.
This new group continues the idea of multi-cultural group Voices Of Nature but this time is presented in a new edition that is carving out on new sonic territory.
New album Artaxerxes represents a fresh and dynamic approach with a difference and also draws on the tradition of typical styles from the 60s and 70s.
The music is scorching, alive with feeling and electricity with uncanny knack for making technology sound organic. Fresh feel is brought by mystical melodies and powerful groove with strong electro kick.
The album also blends world music elements with kinetic grooves and melodic abandon concocting synthesizer timbres and textures.
The CD features 10 original compositions by Andrej Kljakovic and two covers, Syborg by Frank Zappa and Mirage by Jean Luc Ponty.
The album is out now on digital stores and you can download it by clicking HERE.

IDM MUSIC SIGNED AN EXCLUSIVE PUBLISHING DEAL WITH ONE MOF THE BEST CROATIAN ARTISTS - NINA BADRIĆ
As fresh as the latest snow that fell in Zagreb, is the news about latest IDM signing of the great vocal diva Nina Badrić.
Nina Badrić, whose musical career now spans for more than 20 years, is one of the most respectful and most awarded Croatian artists. Moreover, she expanded her music and popularity way further to the entire region and Europe.
With her cover of the song "I am so excited" she reached numerous top 1 charts throughout Europe in 1998 and thus became the first Croatian artist of the younger generation to achieve such success. Since then Nina held several solo concerts in Italy, France, Spain as well as in many other countries of Europe.
So far she has won 8 Porin awards, released 7 studio albums, several live albums and singles with eminent international artists such as Montel Jordan.
Besides her fantastic voice that is often compared to the voices of divas Angie Stone, Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blidge, Nina is also gifted with the great personality and charm, which made her the trademark for the worldwide campaign of the Frederique Constant luxury watches. The campaign with her face covers billboards and fashion magazines all around the world, but at the same time, Nina is strongly involved in many humanitarian activities in the region.
Nina is the author and composer on most of her songs and one of them, "Nebo", represented Croatia at the 2012 Eurosong in Baku, Azerbaijan.
