Listen To: “5–HT” by The Good Natured

The Good Natured

By Mandy Rogers

We can hardly contain ourselves at the immenseness of The Good Natured’s debut single proper “5–HT

A most glorious cacophonous symphony of melodramatic pop noir, that is turned interstellar by Richard X strapping on a cordiant measure of brand cool onto the fantastical resultant masterpiece.

Queue Sarah’s achingly anguished vocal perfection and a whole lot of rousing ooompff from the synth pop section. 

On the down side it won’t be available until March but we can pre-order! Whilst on the upside let’s dull our angst by drawing in the lyrics and air punching from the comfort of our chairs

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.

Why The Good Natured Is The Next Big Thing...


Photo by the lovely Charles Moriarty

So she can't quite stop an overflowing sink (see her Twitter), but what this girl does in the studio is just amazing.  When I'm not obsessing over Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" the other song I am obsessing over right now is "Your Body Is A Machine" by The Good Natured.

I've been talking about The Good Natured for quite awhile now on EQ and I intend to talky talky even more about her until she has a hit on the charts.  She's one of the brightest young things to come out of England in quite awhile now and her magical weave of artistry, substance, simplicity and well, good natured-ness really makes this gal one to watch. 

A lot of people ask me - "Why don't you like Florence And The Machine" and the answer to that my dear readers is simple - Flo's got nothing on The Good Natured.  I very much hate to choose alliances here, but The Good Natured has me hooked.  I've witnessed her music develop from a sparky indie melodies to an overwhelming rainbow of gorgeous musicality that leaves all artists in her genre in the dust and with a lot to look up to.  I'm telling you EQs - if you haven't yet bought any of her EPs yet, then you're "not quite getting it". 

Unfortunately The Good Natured had to cancel all of her live dates for the remainder of the year, but make sure you go and see her as soon as possible when the clock churns 2010 - you won't regret it.  Until then - make sure you throughly become as obsessed as I am about her music by checking out her amazing tracks on MySpace.
