I heard a lot of very good female vocalist’s this weekend that I was impressed with, PhilistineDSGN aka Danny turned me onto Velour 100 which is a band from Ypsilanti, MI(home of City Center, Wolf Eyes, etc) while I started buying up a few songs of Kate Bush on iTunes that i didn’t have on this computer, I don’t even need that Chromatic’s Running Up The Hill remix anymore.
This Fever Ray video has to be a favorite of mine now, I try to explain to musicians that a video can be done with a small budget if you have creatives on your side that aren’t into recycling old ideas or following a certain formula, to be honest i’d love to just talk to some crazy on the street and get his incite on something totally off topic and whatever he says make that the video but this Fever Ray is far from simple, she just a has a great creative head on her shoulders.
As for Warpaint I heard it at Urban Outfitter while buying shoes, I love the recording style of this band a lot because i’d never listened to it if it was cleaned up, i’d probably think it was complete trash.
