Random thoughts of a Brit living in the Imperial Valley of California

Artists of the Month

without comments

Props go out to the following artists who I am currently jones-ing on majorly. Ouch, my iTunes balance!

  • The Gotan Project Funky, hip hop, ambient, who-knows-what-else styled Tango. If this music doesn’t make you want to put a rose in your hair or between your teeth and get a groove on then you are officially dead. Check out Santa Maria (Del Buen Ayre) (iTunes link) for a taste.
  • Amy Winehouse Now my UK readers are saying whatever because she has been huge back at home for a while now. Here in the US I think she’s virtually unknown (only one track on iTunes), but her latest album is released in a week or two and you should check her out. You Know I’m No Good (iTunes).

Hmm… so I’m typing all this out for you good people when I had a sudden thought that I’d heard some of the Gotan Project before…. a little digging around and voila! Way back in Dec 2005, the honourable jschwa had them as a single of the week. All the more reason to add him to your RSS feed, the man got some style.
