artist / song
Ozark Henry "Rescue".
After his jazz-like excursion in the project Sunzoo Manley, Piet Goddaer is returning to his main band Ozark Henry. The prelude to his 3rd full CD "Birth Marks" was the single "Rescue", is still going strong.
Hooverphonic "Jackie Cane"
Hooverphonic finally released the most catchy song from the "Magnificent Tree" album as a single. All the previous ones got to the top of this list, will this one also?

Mauro "Everybody's Friend"
Mauro keeps on releasing songs from his debut album "Songs from a Bad hat" at a great rate. This one is the most quiet so far, with backing vocals of Carol Van Dyck (of Bettie Serveert).
Zita Swoon "My heart belongs to someone else (I wish it was mine)"
After the exuberant "Banana Queen" single, Zita Swoon are shifting their gears down with this more subdued and beautiful song, and a CD that was recorded live in the Jet Studio's for TMF.
Zornik "It's so unreal".
After the success of the debut single "Love Affair", Koen Buysse & co released this new song, which is doing equally well in the Afrekening etc.
Venus in Flames "Safe Haven"
Jan de Campenaere is releasing a 2nd single, a track that was already featured on the first Venus in Flames EP "Cynthia's Gone". Nice: it's available for free via his website (see the MP3-section of this site)
Raymond van het Groenewoud "Keineig (verliefd op haar)"
"Een jongen uit Schaarbeek" is the name of the 18th (or so) CD of Raymond van het Groenewoud, and "Keineig" (translated that would be "oh I'm so totally in love with her") could be about the producer of the album, Christine Verschorren, who happens to be the curren Mss. van het Groenewoud.
Starflam "Amnésie Internationale"
The album "Survivant" has just gone to "gold" status her in Belgium (+15,000 copies), quite unprecedented for a Belgian rap crew. And now there's a second single with a dope video-clip, Zap Mama singing, and some hard-hitting lyrics.
Praga Khan & Axelle Red "Falling"
Maurice Engelen and Fabienne Demal have coöperated on the soundtrack of a new Belgian Film, and "Falling" is both the title of the film and of their titletrack. This month they will be performing live on stage in de Vooruit in Ghent, with lots of other special guest joining in.


Laïs "Le Grand Vent"
Laïs have just returned from a small trip to China (in the footsteps of Eddy Double You), and now the ladies are releasing a new single. It's an a-capella coöperation with Gabriel Yacoub (Malicorne, the author of the song) and a possible forebode of an acoustic/live album.
New songs you could pick to enter the top:
  • dEUS "Nothing Really Ends"
    After a few years of ominous silence, dEUS returns for a brief while with a newly recorded single - Leonard Cohen style - a compilation of their singles (to be released this month) and a DVD with video's & goodies (next month).
  • Coem "Show"
    With a second album called "Bandwi(d)thconsiderations" out earlier this year, Hasselt-based band Coem is seeking more attention for its adventurous guitarrock music with the single "Show".
  • Vive la Fête "AAA"
    Els Pynoo and her cool french lover from Limburg Danny Mommens point to their "République Populaire" album with the promo "AAA". As they say on their under construction website : "attention: post-elektro-pop buyers!".
  • Sttellla "Un weekend avec Emilie Dequenne"
    Jean-Luc Fonck, The Groucho Marx of the french language, has conjured up a new album - titled "Un Homme avec un grand H, au pays des prises de tête" - and this ode to Rosetta-actress Emilie Dequenne is the first single from it.
  • The Dill Brothers "What Have I Done"
    Third single from the album "Remedy" by these ska-brothers from the Kempen.
  • Fence "Relax"
    Another band from Limburg with a new album: "Angels on your Body" is the 2nd full CD and "Relax" the first single. On the downside: their drummer Samuel just left them before the release of the cd.
  • Punk City "Mission"
    Retro goes commercial: A brand new project called Punk City debuts with the single "Mission", featuring the vocals of Zohra (ex-Two Fabiola, later solo) and the beats of Kris Vanderheyden (CJ Bolland, Tyrome, Insider)
  • Indiana "I'm not Alone"
    Indiana is a band centered around a bunch of "lovely ladies" (Ingrid De Smedt & Viola Furleo, recently also another girl named Katerine Avgoustakis) that will aim for the french market, although their debut album "On A Good Day" - produced by Paul "Mellow" Despieghelaere - was quite anglo-saxon.
  • El Tattoo del Tigre "Bereebee cum bee"
    The most mambo of mamboing bands will go on a new tour of the country in December, and prepares so with a new single from their irresistable debut album.
  • K's Choice "My Head (live)"
    After cameo appearances on the new Raymond van het Groenewoud album (Sarah) and the debut Camden CD (Gert), brother & sister Bettens focus on K's Choice again with a double live album and this single to promote it.
  • Millionaire "Me crazy, you sane"
    Good news is coming fast from Millionaire, for after the release their terrific album "Outside The Simian Flock" and this second single from it, they were invited by Muse to open a number of nights for them in the U.K.
  • Jan Leyers "All Summer Long"
    Ex-Soulsister and ex-My Velma Jan Leyers has returned to the label where he started out with Soulsister: EMI Belgium. After the success of the hit "Only your love will do", Leyers has become "hot property" again, so EMI is willing to invest in his music again. A first result of their renewed cooperation is this new single.
  • Marc Morgan "Je reviens de loin"
    Marc Morgan comes back from far, as he sings on this promo single for his third album "Les Parallèles se rejoignent", and in his case this can be taken quite literally, for this album comes after a looooooooong silence.
  • Automatic Buffalo "Beauty Lies"
    Luc de Vos is going full steam ahead with his plans to develop a career singing in English besides his work with Gorki. The debut album "Party People" of Automatic Buffalo will be released mid-November, and this single is here to announce it.
