eMusic finds

What I quite like about eMusic are the serendipitous finds that you can
come across that just make you go all wibble.

For example, what is not to love about An Pierle's cover of Gary Numan's "Are Friends Electric?" which as eMusic describes it "sees the song deconstructed into a Tori Amos-meets-Bjork piano-and-voice stunner". Too blooming right.

There's more of her stuff on snippet sample via eMusic and I rather fancy getting some more of her stylings. The current website is here and they also have a Myspace site which allows you to hear some full tracks by her and her band White Velvet. Pity that so far they only seem to play mainland Europe; someone entrepreneurial should get them a gig here!

NOTE: tried to post this yesterday but Blogger had a wibble!

I must confess to signing up to the free trial, getting my 25 tracks and then cancelling. It was good while I was there though.

BTW, I have tagged you with a meme.

"someone entrepreneurial" - ever thought about it?

I had never heard of her before. I'm listening t How does it feel. It feels like a purchase coming on!

Very cool - I do like unusual cover versions, which is just as well because a large proportion of eMusic is unusual cover versions!

Did you listen to the Jimi Tenor version of Down In The Park?

Every time I decide to give up on the site something happens like last week when Gotan Project were on Jools Holland. I thought they were great and immediately downloaded two of their albums.
