Girl Talk

Girl Talk is back with a new album. The mash-up artist with ADD is trying to surf on the internet fade of "pay as much you want". If you have never listened to him before be sure to check is previous albums too, especially "Night Ripper".

You can grab the album on his myspace page.

According to my friends in the economy department 0$ is the only rational choice. Always use economy theory to justify your greed.

Scarlett Johansson, Hypo & EDH, Portishead, N*E*R*D

Scarlett Johansson, Anywhere I lay my head. To be totally honest, when i first listened to it i thought, ok it's not bad but if the her name wasn't there, no one would probably have ever discovered this album. But after some time i've started to  like it, it is based on the 1985's Tom Waits album Rain Dogs, melodies are good and her deep voice makes sense. Now i found it brilliant. But you should make your own opinion: Myspace
I found her album very coherent so it is hard to recommend any titles.

Hypo & Edh, The correct use of pets some real electronica as you could expect, a bit crazy, some unexpected sounds, and a construction that doesn't fit any norms. A must listen.
I'm a big fan of "naughty place"

Portishead, everything have been said already about their latest album, third, but being such a monument it has been in my Ipod since their Copenhagen concert which was probably one of the most mind blowing that I've done. I just wish they did a 15 min version of "The Rip", moving from a close to folk voice only into a real electronica.

N.E.R.D, i already knew some of their previous albums (Fly or die and In search of), but this seeing sound still surprised me. They are still consistent with what they used to be, but at the same time very modern. If you can listen to only one track, pick the single "Eveyone nose", and if you can have a second one pick "Sooner or later" that shows the diversity they achieved.

Gorillaz & Soko

2 new artists today, a famous and an unknown one.

Gorillaz, have released D-sides, the b sides album of Demon Days. It contains 23 remix and new titles that are totally surprising by their creativity and their openness on new influences.
You can listen to some of the itles on their myspace, i highly recommend the Dare remix by DFA.

The second one is french, but she sings in english with a nice accent, she is called Soko and she is worth being in your files as her songs are really fresh  and simple. I'll kill her is the most known, but you should get your hands on the dandy cowboys.

Sulumi / Ultra Orange & Emmanuelle

1st post to start the blog and the year. The purpose of this shared blog is to exchange musical discoveries.
My first artist is chinese, active on the Beijing underground scene, and make music using gameboys. It creates a really cool 8 bit sound which goes beyond the geeky experiment.
You can listen to him on his myspace, he is called Sulumi.
The second one is really rock and has been squatting my ipod for a while, it is surprising as the first musical experience from Emmanuelle Seigner, but their songs are terribly sexy thanks to the voice and the lyrics. It's called ultra orange & Emmanuelle, and here is their myspace.
