Natalie Imbruglia and Portishead – Leave Me Alone – Tune Of The Week

The mathematics of this song make sense to me.

1. I don’t like Natalie Imbruglia very much
2. I love Portishead

Because P>NI, I wound up enjoying this track.

Imburglia’s vocal is sampled by Geof Barrow and dropped a over dense, lofi Portishead groove. The strings and horns give it a bit of a Handsome Boy Modelling School feel. (huh?)

Gotye ft. Kimbra – Somebody (JBMD Reggae Remix)

I’ve recently been introduced to the roots riddims of Jr Blender, and while checking out his site, I came across this gem, a reggae remix of Gotye’s Somebody I Used To Know. Po Po Po!

For those who don’t know the original – which rock have you been living under? Here it is any way.

Scary Monster and Nice Sprites- Skrillex – 7/10

Album Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 

Genre: Dubstep, EDM, Pop Hardcore, Dance, Electronic
Release Date: March 2011
Favourite Track:Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites, Kill Everybody

The short version:
A mainstream dub album that sounds like the power pop sound from 5 years ago grew up a little. Mashed samples and delicious glitch combine with aggression and a surprising amount of melodic and harmonic flair to make this a great EP.

The first time I’ve liked a Britney Spears song

…since Toxic. This is the Wolfgang Gartner remix of ‘3’ from Britney Spears. While I don’t love it, I do kind of like it, which is a big step for me in terms of BS music.

Though to be fair it has a lot more to do with the fact that Wolfgang Gartner is on remix duties that anything coming out of Britney’s pie hole. Solid Remix.
