EQ Top Ten Collections Of Tracks For 2009

 Lady gaga

"The Fame Monster" by Lady Gaga
If there ever were a perfect pop album, Lady Gaga has created this in eight perfect pop tracks. "Bad Romance" has set the bar in terms of pop mightiness - leaving other aspiring and established pop artists breathless and wishing they could attain such high levels of perfection. When EQ declared Lady Gaga "the new Madonna" early on - it was met "let's just wait until the second album shall we?". We'll it landed with the force of a thunderbolt with mighty tracks like "Alejandro", "Monster" and "Telephone" forcefully shoving those on-the-fence skeptics firmly into the wacky wardrobes adorning the Haus of Gaga. Ladies and gentlemen - we are witnessing the rise of a major pop force who has the staying power of legends - I look forward to the artistic creations that Lady Gaga will be unveiling to the world in the years to come.

"Heartbreak On Vinyl" by Blake Lewis 
If you ask me, this album hasn't gotten nearly the amount of praise it deserves. What makes it so brilliant is the belief that Blake Lewis had in himself to produce a dance album that was truly him and not one he had to compromise to satisfy labels. It's like showing the public the real you whether they like it or not - and "Heartbreak On Vinyl" did just this. It's dance music, carefully immortalized in tracks like "Freak", "Binary Love" and "Sad Song". The title track "Heartbreak On Vinyl" couldn't have been any more perfect - an ode to the downfall of the traditional record store which captured the sadness and loss that many of us hardcore music lovers felt from the convergence of the music industry with technology. The entire album served key play-list tracks on EQ club nights with music lovers proclaiming "I love this song - who sings it?". I'm hoping that Tommy Boy sink some more money into this project and give it the proper European push it deserves as I still don't think the American majority quite get proper dance music the way us Europeans do.

Antigone Talks About "Into Your Head", "Palomino" and "Waking Up Slowly"


In our final installment of the EQ series of video vignettes with the gorgeous and talented Antigone, we have the last three clips for "Into Your Head", "Palomino" and "Waking Up Slowly".  

We hope you have enjoyed this project - our goal was to help you get more insight into the electronica masterpiece that is "Antigoneland".  

EQ would like to thank the maestro that is Peter Bowles for helping us put the videos together - he did a brilliant job.  And huge thanks to Antigone herself.  We shot these videos in Justin Shave's studio on the eve of Antigone's departure from London to Australia and it all felt a little magical, a little sad but all very fitting.  Antigone is now in Sydney wowing the audiences over there and we hear very soon she'll be doing another interview with Adem With An E - so stay tuned for that.

For now, enjoy these last video clips and make sure to download "Antigoneland" out now on Antigone - AntigoneLand.

Antigone Talks About "Life Without You" and "Uberwoman"

In our continuing series of video vignettes about each song from Antigone's gorgeous electronic album "Antigoneland", today we are treated to two new clips in which Antigone discusses the lush "Life Without You" and the fierce track "Uberwoman".  

Both of these tracks are amongst my favourites on the "Antigoneland" album and it's interesting to get some of the backstory behind the songs themselves.
