in honor of this weekend’s festivities, maybe i will do a post with exclusively fruit-flavored artists. but for now, some tunes to tide you over.
Marina and the Diamonds – I am not a robot (Starmith’s 24 carat remix) <— god, i like this chick. darker than little boots and la roux, super akin to Florence. Great remix. Love when she sings “guess whaaaat??” Very Ladyhawkesque. These are all good things.
Des Ark – If By “Gay” You Mean Totally Freaking Awesome, “Then Yeah, I Guess It’s Pretty Gay”
<– enough said? this song came out last spring, i think. and it’s good. not crazy poppy like the name might suggest, but smart and sort of broody but darn, it works. Sort of reminds me of Rasputina or Bif Naked or something along those lines.
as always, if you want me to add you to my [bi]weekly mp3 blast, leave a comment. sometimes it overlaps with the tracks i post here, but most often not.
