The weekly music round up (1st – 7th)

February 8, 2010 at 6:02 pm (Music News) (, , , , , , )

So Florence and the Machine have been added to the line up for this year’s Isle Of Wight Festival. Making it one of the best line ups in years. Apart from the over rated N-Dubz who, in my opinion, are over rated and desperate.

Jay-Z is also making an appearance on the festival scene once again, following his Glasto slot. He is headlining the main stage giving the festival a welcomed variety in music along with Blondie, Biffy Clyro and the phenomenal Pink.

Download Festival have finally listened to the short people of this world and have banned those ridiculous flags in the main arenas. After a wave of complaints anyone seen with a flag will be kicked out of the festival. Let’s just hope others follow suit as nothing is worse than being stuck behind a tall person so you cant see, but being stuck behind a tall person with a huge flag well, you might as well crawl back to your tent.

Fall Out Boy may never sing together again after their break from the industry. Were we really bothered? I think not.

The Grammys happened this week with Beyonce making history by scooping a record six awards with The Black Eyed Peas and Kings Of Leon each receiving three. But it was Green Day that were the most deserving winners, they won best Rock Album for 21st Century Breakdown. An album that is the American band at their pure best.

Albums released this week:

Sunshine Underground – ‘Nobodys Coming To Save You’
The Soft Pack – ‘The Soft Pack’
Ringo Starr – ‘Y Not’
Corinne Bailey Rae – ‘Sea’

Chew Lips – ‘Unicorn’
