Anaïs

April 17, 2008

Came across Anaïs a good while back while in France and I must say that she is an experience- eclectic to the teeth but can be good and quiet humorous with her one woman show. She has released a DVD recently of some of her shows which has brought to my attention a duet she did with The Blood Arm which is pretty catchy. You can have a look at their official sites for Anaïs and The Blood Arm for more information on both.

The Do- A Mouthful

February 19, 2008

Following on from the last post of groups that get stuck in the head The Do is one that the French friend introduced me to on one of the visits over to her and the lead singers voice is just infectious- one of those female vocalists that just sounds gorgeous singing in English with a slight hint of an accent.

Was able to listen to the whole album since a fan put up every single track up on YouTube and there are some great tracks there.  They are almost all in English and span between hip hop, pop and acoustic…and one Finnish song that will get your bum a wigglin.   They all have the same cover art for the track so it is just the music- I did come across a proper video of theirs on MySpace for On My Shoulders which is the original song that was stuck in the head.  On sale at amazon.fr but not sure if they deliver outside of France.

The Beat That My Heart Skipped

November 15, 2007

While I am at it with YouTube music videos- these two have been going through my head all evening- bloody infectious!

The group is Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip- Dan le Sac does the excellent music and Scroobius does the damn fine words.

And of course this being my blog there is a connection to a film as well.

Excellent French film The Beat That My Heart Skipped that you should check out!
