Just A Vid… Nothing More.

New single from Marina & The Diamonds… looking forward to new stuff. This here certainly wets my appetite!

Oh No!

No, this is not an early comment on the Swiss football team’s match of tonight (I’m still thinking positive that they can make it!), but rather another post about one of MOTM’s 2010 darlings. Yes, that quirky songbird Marina Diamandis is at it again as her next single Oh No! is about to be released soon. And today, I can already offer you two remixes of said song. I especially like the Active Child Remix, its sort of spaced-out vibe is quite special. And since I grew up in the 80s, I’m really happy to see that there are still artists out there that care about proper remixes, and not only boring  extensions of the single versions. So enjoy these newbies here, and keep your fingers crossed for our team tonight!

Thanks to Holly for this!

Read! Watch! Listen!

Watch the video to the new version of Carpark North‘s hit Human (MOTM likes the old one muuuuch better!)

Listen to an excellent remix of I Am Not A Robot from Marina And The Diamonds, and a brand-new (and equally excellent!) remix of Shut Out The Moon by Spark, Marina‘s current tour-support-act.

Back To The Surface…

Just a quick one to let you know I’m back from yet another wonderful holiday break. Once again, I encountered many fascinating creatures, and once I’ve sorted all the pics, I will post some of the best ones here.

Musically, it was rather bleak… I didn’t listen to as much as I intended to. It’s quite nice to enjoy some peace and quiet from time to time, just relaxing and listening to the sound of music. Most of the songs I’ve heard were only playing in my mind, and this here was one that constantly kept coming around:

Damn catchy, isn’t it? I’ve completely fallen in love with Marina‘s debut album, The Family Jewels. The clever songwriting, the charming 80s-pop-references and Marina‘s irresistible voice make this one an early top-favourite for the inevitable year-end-best-of-list. Here’s another fine example of this Welsh lady’s pure talent:

If I’ve wetted your appetite now, I highly recommend that you check out the full album; you won’t regret. There’s also a ton of remixes (as always, some good, some bad) out there, a lot of them on this blog here. It’s safe to say that we will hear a lot more from Marina and her Diamonds in the future!

One to watch: Welsh singer Marina & The Diamonds could be big in 2009… check out Obsessions, available via Neon Gold. On the same blog, you can find some more remixes of the song.

Southerly (read my previous article here) offers – together with their label Arctic Rodeo Recordings – a new song called Close To The Crime. Fine one!
