I stumbled upon Dibidim a couple of years ago when their 2006 debut album popped up on my Soundcloud feed. I thought it was a really strong collection of quirky electronic pop songs and I listened to it loads. My favourite track would be Don't Play With The Gun (for the joyous melody that plays through the second half) but there's not a bad track on there really. Listening again recently, I was yearning for more. There's been no further releases as Dibidim, so I looked up those involved and found that one half of the group had written, produced and performed an album in 2016 under the name Lovespeake. I tracked it down and found another great pop album, this time slightly less electronic and more 'classic' sounding - think smooth 70s/80s pop with a hint of disco. Here's the singles, which are both great.
Looked for an Annie topic and couldn't see one. Surprised. Anyway, she's had a bit of a comeback this year after a break of 5 years since Don't Stop and 10 years since Anniemal Tube Stops & Lonely Hearts (Annie/Xenomania/Ville Haimala) Released in May this is Annie's tribute to rave culture of the 90's. Suitably cheap video of kaleidoscope effects and fitness freaks. Take A Look At The World (Annie/Ralph Myerz/Royksopp) Released about a month ago, this is a track on Ralph Myerz new album that sounds more typically Annie. Lots of nice rhyming cuplets and that yeah that is left hanging is great. A&R EP Out in August this will be brilliant no doubt. Collaboration between Annie and Richard X and the cover art is amazing: Yes it's getting a vinyl release. Tracks are avaliable for streaming and it sound great. Very much like the tropico/balearic feel of the second track. Back Together (Annie/Richard X/Little Boots) Hold On (Annie/Richard X/Hannah Robinson) Ralph Macchio (Annie/Richard X) Invisible (Annie/Richard X) Mixed Emotions (Annie/Richard X) Annie's back!
I was convinced that we had a thread for Tesla Boy but it looks like we don't. If you like 80's pop, Tesla Boy are ace! Very snyth-heavy catchy pop music, the sort of which doesn't get made anymore, or if it does its little more than pastiche or nostalgic. They remind me a lot of Zoot Woman but without the pretentiousness. History - First LP - Modern Thrills I think it was the Valerie blog that first picked up on them in 2009 and put them on a compilation. An EP followed on Mullet Records and then it took another year for the album to come around. Still listen to this regularly as it's perfect for late-night drive-time. (Amazon Link) Latest Material http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-8idu5PIOU Watched this great 20 minute performance from russian tv this morning - songs are M.C.H.T.E, Fantasy, Neon Love and 1991 which all (apart from Neon Love) should be on the 2nd album. I especially liked for "1991" how they got two girls in to mime over the Loleatta Hollaway-esq sample. Fakery for authenticity there! tracks released since 2010: In Your Eyes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLaOaobHyfg&list=PL2DA19F4364AB468B Split Another Light Fantasy ( )
