  • Fallen
    Charlie Kaufman
    We immediately like any band who call their first single 'Charlie Kaufman', named in honour of the US scriptwriter responsible for both 'Being John Malkovich,' and then 'Adaptation', that brilliantly-convoluted follow-up in which Charlie and his twin brother are both played by Nicholas Cage. A website dedicated to Kaufman, called, has also made 'Charlie Kaufman' available as a download!

    Fallen (without a "The") is a three-piece alternative rock band from Grahamstown that formed in 2003 with a line-up of ex-Hyper Station members Andrew "Pappy" Shepherd (drums) and Chris de Klerk (guitar, vocals), and ex-Nemesis member Rob Scott on bass.

    'Charlie Kaufman' is their opening shot and it's going to be heard around a lot. It's a rolling, tuneful rock song, topped with De Klerk's winning vocals, off the band's excellent debut four-song EP called 'Last Chance For The Forgotten'. Also on the EP are 'Die Another Day' (thankfully not that Madonna Bond song), 'Quiet', and the title track, all of them bright, original and clearly indicative of a smart and cool band, seeking to find a new and now SA rock sound. Respect! [SS, April 2004]
  • The Fallen
    Cosmo Girl
    'Cosmo Girl', the first mp3 single off The Fallen's 6-track EP, is an excellent song! These guys know what they're talking about - we all know those self-centred, selfish, "Cosmo Girls"! The lyrics are clever, catchy and very relevant in today's world where image is (almost) everything. 'Cosmo Girl' has a stunning melody, great guitar work and is one of my favourite tracks by The Fallen. (TdB, August 2003)

  • Mark Fransman's Strait & Narro
    Superficial available at MWeb - this is an HTML link - please do not right-click
    Here's a fresh urban SA sound with hip hop, trip hop funk and jazz off this acclaimed Cape Town group's debut album, 'Ahead', on Bowline. [July 2006]
  • Freshly Ground
    Castles (Remix)
    'Castles' is the opening single, and more up-tempo remixed version of the album track, from freshlyground's just-released, first album, 'Jika Jika'. This toe-tappin' slice of afro-salsa pop's full title is 'Castles In The Sky', but that languid album version has been speeded up for this video and radio mix (which is also included on the album under the shorter title, 'Castles (Remix)'). So this is the version that you will be hearing on the radio and that you can download right here.

    'Castles (Remix)' has a lightness of tune and lyric, but is still an infectiously repetitive single with Xolani's wistful vocals floating over the band's trademark style, a winning combo of pretty much any branch of the SA music tree you can name. [SS, September 2003]
