Another week speeds by.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted any of my own compositions. Hell, it’s been a while since I’ve completed any of my own compositions, so I’m pleased to give you two this week. These are the latest results of me kicking around with my studio gear:
Hope you like ’em.
I discovered another artist this week — London’s own Amy Winehouse, who does a retro-soul kinda thing. Very 21st-century-Aretha-Franklin. I’m so enamored by what I’ve heard, that I’m giving you two of her tracks: Amy Winehouse – “Back to Black.” and Amy Winehouse – “I’m No Good.” Great stuff.
Smooth chill-out electronica from a Milanese group, The Dining Rooms, who do jazzy downtempo with a cinematic feel. The Dining Rooms – “Fluxus.”
Another of my favorite electronica tracks from Timo Maas, this time paired with the amusingly-named female MC, Chickaboo. Timo Maas – “Shifter (feat. MC Chickaboo).”
I’ve posted tracks from Herbert before (and from his former Moloko band-mate, Roisin Murphy). Roisin, as usual, provides some vocal assistance on this track, just as he provided production assistance on her solo album — makes you wonder why they bothered to break up Moloko at all, given that they’re still producing music together. This track, like much of what they do, is some really catchy neo-disco: Herbert – “Moving Like A Train.”
Lastly — my brother (the Fisherman), emailed me this mp3 with the request that I post it, and with the admonition that I remember where I came from. Aye, sir. Salt in my veins. Here you go: Great Big Sea – “Wave Over Wave.”
