Where to start, where to start?
Ideally I’d be wanting to write about new music and stuff, but there’s also so much from the last six months or so that I want to share. I have no idea where to begin.
This morning my tickets to see La Roux (supporting Lily Allen) in Shepherd’s Bush showed up, so I guess that is a good enough place to start…
London’s La Roux, the latest signing to the mighty Kitsuné Music, is an odd beast. I think it would be fair to say La Roux is a bit like Marmite, you’ll either love it or hate it. I wasn’t so sure when I first heard it but it has very much grown on me, I kinda’ have a thing for female vocalists with quirky voices though.
So grab yourself some of Elly Jackson’s unique, to say the least, voice over some addictivly funky SynthPop…
…and the track:
♫ La Roux – Quicksand (zshare) (MediaFire)
On top of that you HAVE to check out this massive reMix by autoKratz, possibly one of my favourite reMixes of the moment:
♫ La Roux – Quicksand (autoKratz Drags To Riches Mx) (zShare) (MediaFire)
Seeing as how La Roux is going to be supporting Lily Allen I’ll throw you this unofficial reMix of her forthcoming single, which I picked up from PrettyMuchAmazing!, too:
♫ Lily Allen – The Fear (Christian Vorbau ‘We Are King Kong’ reMix) (zShare) (MediaFire)
I’m interested in hearing Lily’s new album now she’s gone all ElectroPop. ‘Female vocalists with quirky voices’ and all….
So, the music industry’s a sinking ship. If you like the songs, throw the artists a lifeline:
La Roux @ Beatport
La Roux @ Amazon
Lily Allen @ Amazon
…and at 7Digital you can pre-order Lily Allen’s new album for £5!!! You can’t even get a pint for that these days, can you?
