iJamming! Downloads: Groove Armada with Bryan Ferry, David Byrne with Fatboy Slim (and Santigold).
Hard to believe that Groove Armada are on their sixth album already. Black Light will be released on the venerable American dance label Om in March. I greatly enjoyed the song “I Won’t Kneel” that came my way courtesy of a Toyota/MySpace promotion just before Christmas, and while the Fletcher jury is still out on their brand-new, decidely low-key collaboration with Bryan Ferry, I’m more than happy to share it and let you make up your own mind. Stream follows below, and you can download the track for yourself by clicking here.
By coincidence, this week also brought forth the first downloadable fruits of David Byrne‘s collaboration with Fatboy Slim, Here Lies Love, twenty-two songs “about Imelda Marcos and Estrella Cumpas, the woman who raised her.” Each is sung by a different singer (as opposed to Byrne himself) and the first to be made public, “Please Don’t,” features Santigold on vocals. You can download it by clicking the image below. And you can view a QuickTime slide show better explaining the project below that. Happy weekend.
