I can’t tell you very much about Marge – none of her biographical information is published in a language I know. I do know, however, that she has made some music worth hearing. For example, this song called “Forget” comes from her 2010 album And. It’s darkly pretty, and at the same time, a little mysterious.
Tricky is preparing to drop his new album, False Idols, and he’s releasing it via his own label of the same name. The lead-off single is called “Nothing’s Changed” – the song features vocals by Francesca Belmonte.
Tricky has confessed that he doesn’t think his last two albums were very good, and that False Idols is a return to Maxinquaye form: “Of all my records, the majority of people are into Maxinequaye. That’s because it was a time and a place. Maxinquaye was a part of their life. Some people say it was the soundtrack to their youth. You can’t challenge that. But musically this is a better album. Of course I know that people might not agree with that.”
False Idols also features vocals from Nneka, Peter Silberman (of The Antlers) and Fifi Rong.
Netherlands-based producer Singularis is only 16, but his album Evening Hours doesn’t reveal his age. Instead the record presents a deep mix of instrumental hip hop, trip hop, and lounge. This release is for listeners who dig that late-night smoking sound. If you like the chill stuff, check out Evening Hours by Singularis.
The Road (featuring Horace Andy) / AK47 is the new single from LeaLea Jones, and both songs are huge. LeaLea collaborated with producer Jack Baker (Bonobo, Alice Russell) for the tracks, which will also be on a forthcoming full-length album. “The Road” features vocalist Horace Andy of Massive Attack fame. Look for this single to drop on June 25 with a limited edition 7″ to follow soon after.
