As I popped the Innerpartysystem’s new cd into my car, I was surprised. Not only did this band live up to all of the online buzz but they shocked me with their sound. Their upbeat edgy-techno-pop is not what I expected though their album cover may suggest otherwise. Though they may have started out small in a town of merely 3000 people, this band landed a record deal with Island Records and is now known nationwide. Their passion for music and their personality just might lead us back to the generations of techno music. As for the question will techno resurface on large scale emerges, the one answer we can give is that IPS is here for the long run.

Laura Izibor Lacks Originality
By Alison Sikes
Singer/piano players generally do not emerge from Dublin, Ireland and it should stay that way. Though only 20 years old, Laura Izibor has the powerful voice of a woman far older and more experienced than her age. Though Izibor has a great vocal and piano playing prowess, she fails in originality. Iizbor’s debut EP Live From Crawdaddy, Dublin is a live album of songs sounding exactly like those of Alicia Keyes and Joss Stone. While there are gems on the EP such as the song Look At What You Got, overall Laura Izibor’s music is forgettable. Live From Crawdaddy, Dublin is just another compilation of songs you would hear at the nearby Starbucks.
