    Yesterday on the drive home from work NPR had a story about Kate Nash, a British artist of whom I had never heard, and they played her song "Mouthwash." I downloaded the song, as well another called "Foundations". I love discovering new artists to enjoy.

    Anyone else have a new song or artist that they're recently obsessed with?

    not really new, but I have a new found love for the dresden dolls lately. It's strange how I won't listen to an album for awhile, then come back to it and fall in love with it all over.

    I quite like Roison Murphy right now, but honestly I'm on an REM kick.

    Definitely the new LEONA LEWIS cd -- her remake of Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" is goose-bump inducing and amazing.

    The Welsh singer Duffy is all over European radio right now. She's pretty retro, but new, too. And she's smokin'!

    I just discovered E.S. Posthumus last week and was absolutely blown away by Nara.



    From wiki:

    E.S. Posthumus is an independent music group that produces cinematic style music. It is a form of epic classical that fuses intertwined drum beats with orchestral and electronic sounds. Their music is inspired by the Pythagorean Philosophy which states that "music is the harmonization of opposites; the conciliation of warring elements". The E.S. is an acronym for "Experimental Sounds" while Posthumus is a word that represents "all things past".[1]

    According to the group, E.S. Posthumus was formed in 2000 by brothers Helmut and Franz Vonlichten. Helmut and Franz studied piano with their mother. After graduating from high school, Franz worked in recording studios while Helmut attended and graduated from UCLA, with a degree in archaeology.

    E.S. Posthumus' music has been licensed by many movie and television production studios; being included in numerous movie trailers and television shows. For instance, the song "Posthumus Zone" was composed for the CBS Sports TV programs The NFL Today and The NFL on CBS. E.S. Posthumus have so far released two albums.

    Its not new... but along side Madonna's "Hard Candy" i have been listening to Dannii Minogue's "Club Disco" and "Unleashed" as well as unreleased Kylie Minogue tracks lately. It's quite a nice musical Trinity.

    Oh and when I'm lounging around the house ironing I've been listening to my friend Ryan's fantastic bossa nova CD, Tive Razao.

    Been pouring myself into the latest NIN release and the new Portishead. Have not yet settled on my repeat songs, but will soon.

    I'm back in my "hot singer/songwriter" phase (Marc Broussard, Matt Wertz, Dave Barnes, Christopher Jak, and Tim Blane) until next Tuesday, when 3 Doors Down releases their new album. Then it'll be all about 3DD.

    Bat For Lashes sounds like someone has been running around in Bjorks songbook.

    I heard Mayra Andrade a few months ago while listening to the BBC and fell in love.

    Tunuca


    Also, I've just recently begun listening to The Ditty Bops. They're fabulous.

    Roison's stuff + Wade Robson choreography on So You Think You Can Dance = HOT HOT HOT

    I love Ramalama (Bang Bang), Night of the Dancing Flame, and Sinking Feeling (old stuff I know, but I love 'em)

    Great group from what little I've heard.

    I'm really getting into the Thermals. They've been around a couple of years, so they're not totally new, but damn... great stuff. "The Body, The Blood, The Machine" Is very impressive, as is the fact that their albums are getting better with each release.

    Aside from that, Ha Ha Tonka is amazing if you don't mind a little twang with your rock. Think Meat Puppets (HHT just wrapped up touring with them) or Uncle Tupelo. I'm a little bummed, because I have to miss them playing in Omaha tonight.

    Oh, and the new Breeders album, "Mountain Battles", makes me very happy.
