It’s been another hot day here at home* mostly browsing through new groups in MySpace and across different blogs. I found a couple of good ones (whose albums I’ll review in the near future), some pretty sucky ones and a few promising ones, which are on the verge of releasing their debut collections. Two of the latter are served right up..
Florence and The Machine
Originating from London, Florence Mary Leontine Welch is just releasing (June 9) her first single Kiss with a Fist on Moshi Moshi label. There are only a handful of songs I was able to find but her unique voice, color lyrics and right dose of madness where enough to make me include her in my list of artists to watch out for in the near future. Enjoy some of her tracks and pay her a visit at MySpace.
Kiss with a Fist
I'm Not Calling You A Liar
Girl With One Eye
Natalie Portman's Shaved Head
This is one of the weirdest (and more ridiculous) band names I’ve ever come upon. I therefore had no choice than to check them out at MySpace. This Seattle band is pure electro fun, both musically and lyrically. Their sound is influenced by 80’s samples and guarantees to start a party. Their lyrics are equally fun (or once again ridiculous), with lyrics such as “me and your daughter never looked hotter” and “you have to take care of your facial hair”. Their debut album Glistening Pleasure is coming out on July 15 but until then, check out their samples.
Sophisticated Side Ponytail
Slow Motion Tag Team
* There are only two things that I’ve persistently refused to do for the last few years (for no apparent reason): watch even a single episode of LOST and install an air-conditioning unit at my place
