RIAA in good album shocker!
Not just good, this
is brilliant, wonderful, ecstatic, genius, great, and all-over wonderful. Go listen yourself, the full album is available here
I could go all anorak on ye, and start detailing the breaks and beats and meets and mashes and originals and quotes and synchrony, but the album is so good I've started blogging before I've heard it all.
Special mention must go to the very first minute though: David Bowie meets The Four Tops in a way that sounds like it is the original, the joins are more than seamless (seamlesser ?). A paragon of the mashup art.
This is what the internet is supposed to be about for music: If I want the new Alabama 3 album I'll go buy it, but from their site
not from my local CD shop. If I want to find new music I'll stream stuff from my neighbours on last.fm
(although I will have to skip a lot of Radiohead shite
), or seed a list at pandora
. But the best internet music is the stuff like this that you just come across serendipitiously.
What do you reckon the chance of me ever "just finding" this album in my local CD shop ? Zero or none ?
But I love music, and have heard a lot of new stuff today, quite a few of which I'll be looking to buy (as long as the artists have shops on their sites).
Hey it's not just me, they
thought it was great too. And full dibs to Boing Boing
