Wow– that week just FLEW by.
Not a whole lot of stuff this week. I’ve been really busy
Here we go again:
Saw a nifty documentary the other night about Suicide Girls (the website and the burlesque tour), and there was some great music used. I had to hunt down one of the tracks immediately: Ima Robot – “STD Dance.”
This is one of the best uses of a vocoder that I’ve heard. Too often, vocoders are used to cover the fact that the singer can’t quite hit the tune, or for a cheesy effect (“Believe” by Cher, I’m looking in your direction), but this is…well, beautiful, actually. Imogen Heap – “Hide and Seek.”
One of my clearest memories of this song is dancing to it with
I recently discovered this group, which performs a mix of electro-pop-goth-stuff which I like. It’s pretty much “Hot Topic- the in-store playlist”, but an nice bit of work nonetheless: The Birthday Massacre – “Horror Show.”
One of my favorite tracks from Timo Maas’ album Loud, which I’ve posted from before. This time, he’s paired with UK-based female MC Chickaboo. I love her voice. This used to be one of my “commuting soundtracks” when I was working in NYC. Timo Maas (feat. MC Chickaboo) – “Shifter.” (EDIT: right-click, copy and paste the link instead of direct-clicking it)
One last link, which isn’t a music file…but will help you find new music. Pandora- a part of the Music Genome Project — I first heard about this on NPR. They’ve amassed a huge database, breaking music down into tempo, note progressions, tonal qualities, etc. Pandora asks you to enter a musical artist or song you like, and then will make suggestions of other stuff you might like…and tell you why. Very cool.
