Another roulette, as I've been listening to quite a bit of music lately. Some great stuff here, hope you enjoy.
Dead Heart Bloom - I Hope I Stop Fading
Album: Dead Heart Bloom (2006)
Full of mournful strings and low, sad vocals, this song resonates somewhere deep within me, almost bringing tears to my eyes. The sadness here, the wish to not 'die and fade away', breaks my heart.
Menomena - Evil Bee
Album: Friend and Foe (2007)
A dark, moody masterpiece introduced to me by a cousin who demanded I watch the bizarre music video. I've had the song on the 'pod for a long time, but I only listened to it then, and it really intrigued me. The pleading, sad quality of the lyrics and the emotion behind them, empowered by the engine-like machinations behind the music, both engage and terrify.
Imogen Heap - Meantime
Album: G:MT - Greenwich Mean Time OST (1999)
Thanks to the wonderful Maggie at goodnight and go, I now possess a startling amount of rare Imogen Heap tracks. This, one of her more obscure OST contributions, follows the rule of her soundtrack submissions being excellent; it's a beautiful, soaring piece backed with buzzing techno and wonderful lyrics.
Bitter:Sweet - Dirty Laundry
Album: The Mating Game (2006)
After hearing the Morgan Page remix of the song, I wasn't too blown away, but I've finally come across the original. A swaggering, playful piece of trip hop that's expertly put together with dramatic horns, clashing sounds, a wonderfully beat and calm, swirling, sexually-potent vocals, this one's a winner.
And remember, search for more at The Hype Machine; purchase albums or mp3's at Amazon, Amazon Canada, Amie St., cdbaby, or Insound.
