R.City

Single of the Day: R. City feat. Adam Levine – Locked Away

Perlahan tapi pasti, single ‘Locked Away’ milik R.City (juga dikenal dengan Rock City) mulai mencuri perhatian. Tidak hanya menanjak di tangga lagu namun juga mulai sering dimainkan di berbagai tempat. Memang ada alasan kenapa lagu ini bisa menjadi semarak dan mendapat atensi lebih. Duo R.City yang terdiri atas Timothy “A.I.”Thomas dan Theron “Uptown AP” Thomas mengajak frontman Maroon 5, Adam Levine, dalam ‘Locked Away’ ini. Track urban ini mengedepankan pendekatan ala reggae yang catchy serta hook pada chorus untuk mengikat pendengarnya dan rasa-rasanya upaya mereka cukup sukses. Apalagi vokal Levine bernyanyi dengan lebih lembut dan tidak melengking tinggi seperti biasanya,

Neck Deep

Album Of The Day: Neck Deep – Life’s Not Out to Get You

Band asal Wales, UK yang bernama Neck Deep telah merelease album kedua mereka yang diberi judul “Life’s Not Out to Get You“. Neck Deep yang kini terdiri dari vokalis Ben Barlow, gitaris Matt West, bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans dan drummer Dani Washington mulai dikenal namanya sejak mereka merelease debut album mereka “Wishful Thinking” pada tahun 2014 lalu. Album ini berhasil membuat nama Neck Deep menjadi salah satu band yang paling banyak dibicarakan sepanjang tahun 2014 dan album ini juga berhasil mengantarkan Neck Deep memenangkan Best British Newcomer dalam ajang penghargaan Kerrang Awards 2014. Berselang kurang lebih setahun, Neck Deep pada bulan

Jess Glynne

Album of the Day: Jess Glynne – I Cry When I Laugh

Tahun lalu mungkin kita hanya mengenal Jess Glynne sebagai bintang tamu dari single-single sukses milik Clean Bandit dan Route 94 (‘Rather Be’ dan ‘My Love’). Namun kini dengan dua single nomor satu dengan mengusung namanya sendiri (‘Hold My Hand’ dan ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’) serta tambahan satu lagi dari kolaborasinya dengan Tinie Tempah dalam ‘Not Letting Go’, jelas nama Jess Glynne kini menjulang sebagai penyanyi muda asal Inggris yang berada di garda depan. Menyusul 5 single #1 tersebut kini Glynne siap untuk mempersembahkan musikalitas dirinya dalam album debut, “I Cry When I Laugh“. Memakai judul yang berbau ironi,

Walk-Off-The-Earth

Album of the Day: Walk Off The Earth – Sing It All Away

Meski dikenal sebagai bintang YouTube dengan cover version kreatif mereka terhadap berbagai lagu hits dan populer, namun Walk Off The Earth lebih dari itu. Dan itu yang mungkin (masih) mereka ingin buktikan dalam album ke-6 mereka, “Sing It All Away“. Seolah ingin menegaskan hal tersebut, maka kali ini mereka tidak menyertakan lagu cover (sebagaimana yang dilakukan album sebelumnya, “R.E.V.O.” yang memasukkan cover ‘Somebody I Used To Know’ yang mengangkat nama mereka) dan menghadirkan barisan track orisinal. Dan Walk Off The Earth mengerti benar bagaimana mengerjakan lagu-lagu yang sedap didengar dan pastinya akan memenuhi syarat untuk menjadi bagian dari playlist radio.

Single of the Day: 5 Seconds of Summer – She’s Kinda Hot

Setidaknya 1,5 tahun telah berlalu sejak CreativeDisc memuat artikel pertama mengenai band asal Australia 5 Seconds of Summer. Kini, mereka sudah menarik ancang-ancang untuk album studio kedua, dengan menampilkan ‘She’s Kinda Hot‘ sebagai single perdananya. Masih memberdayakan John Feldmann di bagian produksi, keempat pria muda ini kembali menebar pesona mereka lewat arak-arakan musik poprock dengan pengaruh punk. Tema lirik tentang cewek pun masih menjadi favorit mereka. Untuk pengerjaannya, Michael Clifford dan Ashton Irwin mendapat asistensi dari Madden bersaudara, Benji dan Joel. Sebelumnya, mereka muncul dalam creadit untuk single ‘Amnesia’. Aspek musik yang berbeda antara ‘Amnesia’ dengan ‘She’s Kinda Hot’ ini

X Factor US Top 6 – The Unplugged & Pepsi Challenge

Minggu ini, 6 finalist tersisa akan membawakan masing-masing 2 lagu, yang pertama adalah versi unplugged (akustik) dan juga Pepsi Challenge, dimana para fans bisa vote untuk memilih lagu mana yang dibawakan oleh para finalis.

1. CeCe Frey – Demi Lovato – Young Adults – “Edge Of Glory” by Lady Gaga
Penampilan pertama CeCe di babak ini cukup bagus.
LA: “Sometimes we get it wrong. I’m starting to become a fan.”
Britney: “At this point in the competition it should be great, it was just good.”
Simon: “I don’t think you are worth the 5 million dollar contract. It was a little too cabaret for me.”
Demi: “I think this was one of your best performances.”

2. Emblem3- Simon Cowell – Groups – “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
Mereka cukup berhasil membawakan dengan versi akustik lagu ini.
LA: “That was pretty good. At least one of Simon’s groups can sing harmony.”
Britney: says, “This has been your best performance in the competition.”
Demi: “You guys did great, it wasn’t the best. I feel like it’s a downgraded version of the Jonas bros 5 years ago.”
Simon: “The pressure to deliver what they just did, you did amazingly well.”

3. Carly Rose Sonenclar – Britney Spears – Teens – “As Long As You Love Me” by Justin Bieber
Boleh dibilang lagu ini terdengar lebih baik daripada versi aslinya, dan terasa beda.
LA: “I love you so much! You showed some restraint. That was maybe your best for my taste.”
Demi: “You sang it better than Justin did. You remind me so much of Jo Jo.”
Simon: “This is why I love working in this country. I’m seeing a star emerge week after week. You’re actually very cool, you really are. One of my favorite performances.”
Britney: “I’m so proud of you. Each week, you make the song your own”

4. Fifth Harmony – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele
Penampilan mereka makin membaik tiap minggu, harmonisasi juga semakin terasah.
LA: “I still didn’t hear any harmony. You should be named Fifth Unison”
Britney: “I’m trying to figure out what separates you from the other girl groups.”
Demi: “I feel like there’s a couple of you that should just be solo artists.”
Simon: “That was really unfair criticism, LA. They have worked on their harmonies. I think they deserve a shot in the semi-final next week.”

5. Diamond White – Britney Spears – Teens – “It’s a Man’s World”
Kita tidak melihat adanya ‘unplugged’ dibawakan dilagu ini, bagus sih, hanya saja terdengar seperti ‘full band’.
LA: “That was really different for you. This week, you brought attitude. You sang your butt off.”
Demi: “It was risky singing a song you’ve done before, but it paid off.”
Simon: “It was a little bit screechy in parts, you made up for it in the end. I wish you had chosen a different song.”
Britney: “I’m so proud of you. You not only nailed it, you destroyed it.”

6. Tate Stevens – LA Reid – Over 25s – Living on a Prayer by Bon Jovi
Pembawaan Tate di lagu ini cukup bagus.
Britney: “I feel like you’re getting away from what you do best, down the middle country.”
Demi: “I’m a fan of you. I will be buying your album one day. This performance was a little boring and you skipped out on the high note.”
Simon: “It’s like taking a goldfish for a walk. You have to choose the material. I like it when you choose the material. Not a great song choice.”
LA: “I love the song. You did a really good job with the song. You’re finally doing something for yourself. Your family stands behind you, and I stand behind you.”

Babak kedua: Pepsi Challenge:

7. CeCe Frey – Demi Lovato – Young Adult – “Part of Me” by Katy Perry
OK, CeCe Frey kembali ke tampilan semula dengan tattoo Leopard di wajahnya, soal penampilannya? Sayang, agak kacau dan dia terdengar seperti berteriak-teriak dibagian verse.
LA: “Not loving it. That was karaoke.
Britney : “I found it very entertaining. I loved it.”
Simon: “I liked the way you were defiant all the way through the performance. If you do go, I’m going to miss you.”
Demi: “if the princess of pop says you were good, then I’ll take it from her,”

8. Emblem3 – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Forever Young” by Bob Dylan
Penampilan mereka terdengar lebih baik dari yang pertama.
LA: “Tonight you nailed it.”
Britney: “I thought it was a superstar performance.”
Demi: “I am a fan. I just want to see you command the stage more. Much better than your first performance.”
Simon: “That is a silly criticism. I think you’ve been really good tonight. Emblem 3 has landed.”
Perseteruan Simon vs Demi semakin memanas, dimana mereka terkadang merebut mic dan saling memotong komen masing-masing.

9. Carly Rose Sonenclar – Britney Spears – Teens – “If I Were A Boy” by Beyonce
Carly terdengar seperti profesional menyanyikan lagu ini.
LA: “You never let me down.”
Demi: “That’s a phenomenal vocal. I do want to hear something uptempo.”
Simon: “Don’t listen to a single word this one has said.”

10. Fifth Harmony – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Give Your Heart a Break” by Demi Lovato
Akhirnya Fifth Harmony memberikan penampilan terbaik mereka selama di X Factor US ini.
LA: “I actually hear harmonies. That was your very very best performance”
Britney: “A friend of mine sings this song good, and so do you.”
Demi: “I think this song should have been your song. You sing it better than the original. It was energetic, fun. Simon did a good job this week.”
Simon: “The show would not be the same without you,”

11. Diamond White – Britney Spears – Teens – Diamonds by Rihanna
Namanya sesuai dengan judul lagu yang dibawakan, dan Diamond pun turun dari langit2 panggung dengan kursi yang berbentuk ‘berlian’. Sayang versi lagu yang dibawakannya kurang pas.
LA: “I really like you, I really like that song, unfortunately I didn’t love your rendition of it.”
Demi: “I feel like you definitely did it justice.”
Simon: “Everybody is being really strong tonight. The second half was better than the first. Overall, I think you’ve had a good night.”
Britney; “I feel like this song was made for you.”

12. Tate Stevens – LA Reid – Over 25s – “If Tomorrow Never Comes” by Garth Brooks
Tate is in his element! Dengan membawakan lagu yang pas di genrenya, Tate bersinar!
Britney: “That felt like a Tate Stevens performance.”
Demi: “I got a little sleep on that performance, but you have a huge future ahead of you.”
Simon: “Welcome back to the competition. YOu remind me of Garth Brooks. I’m happy you’ve come this far. You don’t put an age cap on talent. We are going to see you next week 100%”
LA: “If there is any truth that you were straying away from your roots, America brought you back. That was great.”

Minggu ini ada Melanie Amaro, pemenang X Factor US season 1 membawakan lagu barunya “Long Distance’, sedangkan debut albumnya diperkirakan akan rilis awal tahun depan.
