VIDEO: Eliza Doolittle “Creep”

Here at The Kaje we can’t get enough of the pop phenomenon that is Eliza Doolittle. Having been fans of hers for a few years, we are delighted to see that Eliza is now riding high in the charts. Yet, even we were beyond blown away by this emotive cover of Radiohead’s “Creep”. Better than the original?  You decide…

ALBUM REVIEW: Eliza Doolittle “Eliza Doolittle”

Label: Parlophone
Release Date: 21.06.2010

Following her second single release “Pack Up”, Eliza Doolittle is set to release herself eponymous debut album upon the summer ears of the UK.

This album really could become the soundtrack of summer 2010, laced with its blissful melodies that will have you humming and whistling for some time after…even after only listening to the record once. Doolittle’s voice lends itself perfectly to the album, which seems to shift and switch almost every track to a different genre. This does showcase Doolittle as a greatly ranged singer, adapting to each genre with ease and maturity for such a singer of her age. However this constant shift does make it hard for the album to flow from one track to another or create a sense of a journey.

Nevertheless there is no doubting the talent offered from young Doolittle. Whilst the more down tempo tracks such as “So High” and “Nobody” show off a vulnerable innocent voice, you can’t help but feel that other tracks like “Track 1” and “Go Home” will sooner rather than later be snapped up by some advertisement king and used for a mobile phone or broadband advert.

For a debut album, this is a really strong effort from Eliza Doolittle, especially when we are in a world where it seems like everyone is copying someone else in the music industry. Here we have something a little different, whilst still maintaining its mainstream appeal and familiarity. I look forward to the next single off the album (so long as it’s not the questionable “Mr Medicine”) and expect to hear a lot more of this young talented singer.

NEWS: Final Line-Up For Macmillan’s Brick Lane Takeover

Heading up the DJ venue at the Brick Lane Takeover (BLT), taking place on 17 June, is the mighty DJ Format with his explosive cocktail of inspired 80’s & 90’s hip hop with a good dose of late 60’s early 70’s funk, rock, jazz thrown in the mix. While Midfield General [DJ] will be mixing up leftfield pop, hip hop, cinematic epics, house, techno and soul.

Also playing will be favorites, Blonde Ambition [DJ’s], with their excitable gyrations and funky fresh mixes. The final few bands to show their support are Tubelord with their breakneck pop, anvil-heavy riffs and super-infectious music and Sound of Guns, a five piece Liverpudlian band playing eclectic and raw rock.

Completing this year’s already stellar bill of the best new talent around are Jamie Ley, King Jim and Lost on Campus.

XFM’s John Kennedy and BLT curator said, “It’s great to see a charity reaching people with music – Macmillan’s Brick Lane Takeover has very quickly established itself as the place to see some of the best up and coming bands just as they break. I’ve really loved working on this event as curator and I know the bands on the night will not disappoint.”

Headliner Eliza Doolittle said, “I’m so excited to play at this year’s Brick Lane Takeover for Macmillan Cancer Support, it’s a really great, very intimate setting and Brick Lane’s going to be buzzing with all the amazing new talent performing.”

Macmillan Cancer Support will once again take over Brick Lane in East London when the second run of its new music event – the Brick Lane Takeover – will welcome 2000 music enthusiasts from 5.30pm through to the early hours.

The all-dayer kicks off at 5.30pm and offers 7 hours of brilliant music from an eclectic mix of some of the best indie, electro, folk and punk rock bands around.  One wristband will give fans access to live music from a host of established acts, across East London’s finest venues – 93 Feet East, Vibe Bar, Café 1001, The Brickhouse, Rough Trade, Spitalfields Market and Cargo.

Bands and venues have come together for Macmillan and waived fees to enable this event to happen. Goldheart Assembly commented, “Love Macmillan, love Brick Lane – we can’t wait to perform for such an important cause that affects so many of us.”

Spitalfields will host live music during lunch time starting at 12.30pm and activities throughout the day including free Benefit ‘Brick Lane Makeover’s’, delicious cake stalls and a hog roast.

Tickets are available NOW from www.bricklanetakeover.com priced at £20 with all proceeds going to help Macmillan continue to provide vital services which help make a real difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.

Finally if you haven’t got your ticket yet and you fancy yourself a dancer (whether your style be the good, the bad or the ugly) enter the ‘Get your jig on’ dance competition. It’s as easy as submitting a clip of yourself jiggling, or dad dancing, and you could win the ultimate festival package, including tickets to Bestival! Visit www.bricklanetakeover.com/competition to get involved.
