Charley says POP! is coming back!

March 15, 2011

It’s been way too long, so after a long hibernation due to circumstances Charley says POP! is coming back!

The goal remains the same. It’s not about being the fastest or the most updated, it’s a platform for me to point you towards the world’s finest pop in all its forms. A place where you can come take a look every once in a while to catch up on new releases, old favourites and hidden gems.

And as before, there’s just that little bit of extra attention for the Belgian and Dutch music scene. There’s just too much amazing Benelux pop that would otherwise stay under the radar in the English language blogosphere.

If you’re just joining us, feel free to take a look around in this blog’s history. There’s been posts on pop in the broadest sense of the word, there’s been guest blogs from the likes of The Pipettes and there’s also been interviews with artists ranging from upcoming talent like Susanna Kay and Axeela to international superstars like Lasgo producer Peter Luts and the ever amazing Kat DeLuna.

I am now going to leave you with the above music video of ‘Be With You’ by Tara Lowé, which has no relevance to this post other than that it is a brilliant club track and that I simply like it very very much.

Hope to see you around!

Charley

PS: It has come to my attention that there’s been some major issues with the Charley says POP! e-mail address. It seems that not only in the last couple of weeks, but also in the months that we were still up a lot of things have gone wrong with sending and receiving e-mails.

My sincere apologies if you have been trying to contact me, or if I have contacted you only for the message to ultimately not arrive. I’m trying to get this sorted as soon as possible.

Charley says WEEK! 2010.26

July 6, 2010

Things have been a little crazy here, so what better way to get this site back into swing than with Katerine Avgoustakis making a great song even more amazing?

The Charley says POP! favourite joined French singer Grégoire Boissenot on stage at the Greek MAD Awards for a special Greek and French (Grench? Freek?) version of his hit ‘Toi + Moi’.

Grégoire is an artist who got to release music through My Major Company, a website which lets fans invest in the making of their favourite artists’ music. You can compare it to Sellaband, the site through which Dutch singer Hind collected funds for her new CD.

Charley says GUEST BLOG! The Pipettes say POP!

July 4, 2010

The Pipettes have a very good single coming out on July 19th.

Call Me‘ is the opening track from their sophomore album ‘Earth vs. The Pipettes’. It’s the obvious big hit between all the excellently polished new tracks and, as mentioned above, it’s just very very good.

I asked the group, now consisting of Monster Bobby, Jon, Seb and Alex with sisters Gwenno and Ani on lead vocals, to write a guest blog for Charley says POP!

After the jump, you’ll find their five biggest inspirations in music. A list which is eclectic to say the least!
