Cortney Tidwell

I came upon this artist via a yet unreleased remix by Ewan Pearson. He dancified her in a way reminiscent of the best parts of Bjork and Goldfrapp, really dazzling glamorous stuff. Not wanting to prerelease something, I tracked down one of the singles off her album and was really suprised at how different it is. In some ways it reminds me of the Dennis Wilson track I posted up here a while back. Languid and shoegazey, I really enjoy it.

Look for it when it comes out Courtney Tidwell - Don't let the stars bring you down (ewan pearson remix)

Gotta be upfront with y'all and say that this is not something I was able to find on my own. Once in a while I get sent promos, some are ok some are a little bit less. Most of the time they don't even rate mentioning. Today however with an overcast sky and the last few days of Belle and Sebastian type music ringing in my head I thought it might be worth it to promote a little melancholy pop. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Winterpills - Brokenarm

In other news Other Music from New York is going to start offering digital downloads free of DRM for sale on their site. This should be a great place to get obscure stuff that isn't totally crippled by bits and bytes that screw with your rights as a consumer.

Alice Coltrane

In case you had not heard, John Coltrane's wife Alice passed away in the middle of last month. Although her music never attained the following that her husband's had her impact on music is immense. Here on Journey in Satchidananda she works with Pharaoh Sanders on some beautiful, expansive, meditative tunes.

Enjoy, R.I.P. Alice

This may be old and played out to some of you experienced soundtrack hunters out there, but Goblin are RAD! Weird building layers of keyboard arpeggiations combined with a powerful bass make me happy.

I picked up a copy of a greatest hits comp and have been hooked.

I should post more but here is one particularly fun track.

Goblin - Profondo Rosso (Main Title)

Any opinions out there about mediafire as a host for these tunes. Does it work ok?
