Does anybody else agree that Lily Allen: www.myspace.com/lilymusic will be this summers favourite artist?

Joe Whiley has been playing LDN on her show on radio 1 and she has featured in various newspapers recently... I particularly like Alfie, but she has just taken it off her my space profile, second to that a take on fifty cent: Nan your a window shopper

She's already been discussed on the Teenpop thread. Opinions were positive.

alext (alext), Thursday, 27 April 2006 13:09 (eighteen years ago) link

Lol I am neither jus like to spread the word when there is a good artist about...
I would say she was more streets vs corrine bailey rae than Belle and Sebastian

E-Clex (E-Clex), Thursday, 27 April 2006 13:24 (eighteen years ago) link

if she sounds anything like the streets OR corinne bailey rae OR belle & sebastian, the interest i've had in hearing her music is immediately DEAD.

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 27 April 2006 13:25 (eighteen years ago) link

Lex, I'm pretty sure you'd like her. LDN really is irresistible, although some of the other songs do get corny after a while.

she is KEITH ALLEN'S DAUGHTER.

I'm about as sure that this is really any good as I am about M.I.A. or Uffie (damn, I don't begrudge Feadz making some money but oh, Peaches what hath thou wrought?!) but I'm finding it hard to hate, maybe a little twinge of jealously! I think I'm in love! *downloading mixtape right now*

endoftheline, Thursday, 27 April 2006 23:00 (eighteen years ago) link

She's absolutely awesome. Whether she's 100% authentic or totally fabricated, I'm still impressed. Her mixtape was really sweet and quite clever I though.

I love that mix too, not looking forward to reading even more rubbish about the "myspace effect" though, although the Keith Allen connection might wise some people up to the fact that she's not exactly lacking for industry connections. Or access to her dad's record collection...

fandango (fandango), Friday, 28 April 2006 00:49 (eighteen years ago) link

She's playing Notting Hill Arts Club on the fourth of May and the three following Thursdays. I might go along. If any other ILXors moght, then give me an email, as I can't imagine any of the pitifully small circle of Londoners I've met thus far will be up for it:

live: Lily Allen (pictured), Big Roe, Ashok
decks: Lily Allen

Tonight Lily Allen is starting her Yoyo May residency. For an (almost) 21 year-old artist, she has been getting around somewhat! Freshly pictured for Vogue Magazine her music is sweet, fun and bringing together a whole host of influences. Lily is rumoured to be on Top of the Pops later this summer, so do come and see her close up while you still can before she goes Number 1. Especially since these are her first ever live appearances! Can't get any better now, can it....

Every Thursday, 6pm-2am, £5
NO TICKET PRE-SALES PLEASE COME DOWN EARLY

StanM (StanM), Tuesday, 2 May 2006 17:52 (eighteen years ago) link

She's spammed here before, and I'm sure this is her brother or cousin or something, but whatever. I listened (so the spam worked), I thought it was ok. Not my thing. The original tunes were catchy, but the "mixtape" on her site was garbage -- no mixing skills whatsoever.

Abbadavid Berman (Hurting), Tuesday, 2 May 2006 20:34 (eighteen years ago) link

By the way, calling an artist no one's ever heard of "this summer's biggest hit," his not the most effective way of cloaking your spam.

Abbadavid Berman (Hurting), Tuesday, 2 May 2006 20:35 (eighteen years ago) link

the mixing on the mixtape is pretty bad. but the song selection's nice enough.

I like that we've set this dichotomy up early.

deeej, Tuesday, 2 May 2006 21:09 (eighteen years ago) link

What if she's 75% authentic but 25% fabricated, like she's got a cyborg arm?

Abbadavid Berman (Hurting), Wednesday, 3 May 2006 03:15 (eighteen years ago) link

Anybody got a tracklist for the mixtape (which I like fine; it's sort of like the mixtapes I make: bunch of songs I like)? This is what I get so far:

(1) Lily Allen "LDN," (2) Dizzee Rascal "Fix Up, Look Sharp," (3) some woman who isn't the S.O.S. band or Deborah Cox or Shabba Ranks or Rebel Princess doing a fetching reggae version of "Just Be Good To Me," (4) Lily Allen doing another of her songs, (5) Ludacris "The Potion," (6) Some Wu Tang–related thing (ODB? Clinton Sparks?), (7) some dancehall guy, (8) another dancehall guy, (9) Montana Slim? "My Swiss Moonlight Lullaby"? (10) Creedence Clearwater Revival "Born on the Bayou," (11) Lee Dorsey? "Get Out My Life Woman," (12) Rod Stewart/Faces "Stay With Me," (13) Squeeze? "Up the Junction"? (14) a Lily Allen original, (15) some grimish thing, (16) Specials "Friday Night, Saturday Morning," (17) some funky dubby thing, (18) some sweet French Europop thing, (19) Janet Kay? "Silly Games," (20) another Lily Allen original, (21) some junglish dancehall thing.

Frank Kogan, this summer's biggest hit. (I've been spamming here daily.)

(And more people have heard of her than have heard of me. She's getting 30,000 plays a day on her Myspace page.)

"(3) some woman who isn't the S.O.S. band or Deborah Cox or Shabba Ranks or Rebel Princess doing a fetching reggae version of "Just Be Good To Me,""

I haven't listened to the mix-tape, but perhaps this would be the Beats International version?

If she used the Smith & Mighty Remix of the same I would instantly agree to carry her children.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Wednesday, 3 May 2006 05:58 (eighteen years ago) link

it's beats international, but i don't think it's a remix, just the single edit. the odb track is "pop shots." the french tune is vanessa paradis, "joe le taxi" (great song title, damn) which i think means i need to hear more vanessa paradis.

gypsy mothra (gypsy mothra), Wednesday, 3 May 2006 06:25 (eighteen years ago) link

weirdly i received a mailout from EMI a few weeks back which mentioned Lily (she's on Regal imprint) - saying 'someone you are going to hear a lot more of in the next few months' - to which i glossed over and moved on.

now i find myself downloading the mixtape and wishing i had responded to the email to get a chance on the ultra limited 7".

pah.

mark e (mark e), Wednesday, 3 May 2006 07:17 (eighteen years ago) link

also - anyone see the Mark Ronson link in her myspace - this style of mixtape has markings of him all over it .. is he involved ?

U. K. Le Garage (wins), Sunday, 10 June 2018 15:50 (six years ago) link

She gave a really good interview on, of all places, Seth Meyers' Late Night show podcast, and got into the Sheezus era a little bit and how she was flailing and unsure of herself and was basically making choices based on committee approval. It doesn't excuse some things, of course, but it does answer some questions.
