It's not a new CD but I just bought it and I wouldn't consider it to be hard to believe it;s good but Cassandra Wilson's New Moon Daughter is really good. The warm lush sounds of this womans voice is infectious to say the least. This particular album she sounds like a more soulful Diana Krall mixed with a little Tracy Chapman and a sprinkle of Sarah Mclachlan. The mixes are awesome and her haunting voice is warm and eary. The album was released in 1995 and has made it to my reference stack of discs.
Must hear!! Must Have!
Ooops! One you might not believe is good but it is..Hmmm. I give my vote to a group called Naturally Seven. They are an Acappella Group that makes instrumental sounds with their mouths while singing multi-part harmonies. Track#10 is my favorite on this album. You can find more groups like them on Singers.com. Check it out.
Not out of the mainstream, but I only recently discovered Holly Cole's music. I especially like her CD "Temptation". On some tracks there is a very haunting, and smokey quality to her voice, and accompaniemt is spare, so her voice stands out. I would even use this CD as a reference of sorts. The recording is excellent also. Cheers. Craig.
Alright. I wanted to put this up last week, but never had time. Bday0000 gave me forum to say that the new Daft punk CD 'Discovery' has some of the greatest tracks in the inventive electronic music. 4 tracks in the beginning has some great electric guitar (YES, guiter) riffs that will put heavy metal rock to shame. 9 th track ' something about us' is very addictive ballad song, sung thru guitar voice box(?). Remaining tracks are standard fare, but still uniquely arrange dance tracks that has enough variations, notes not to become same old same old.Tire Guy, you would enjoy this CD. Particularly if you like Basement Jaxx.
