Did you like Eliza Doolittle? Well, if you did you should like this too. Paloma is another retro-inspired vocalist hailing from London. This is from her 2009 debut album.
There is definitely an old soul in her voice and it’s refreshing. She released a new single, Picking Up The Pieces, this year. She has another single set to be released on the 23rd.
The British-born Eliza has a new fan (me and quite possibly you). Her tracks remind me a bit of Adele. It’s like soulful vintage rock. I love how there is the added orchestral flair in some of them. She’s a new discovery for me and I’m going to stick her self-titled album in my favorites/Jammin’ playlists.
Featuring Rebecca (of Rebecca & Fiona), this is a lovely six-day-old original track produced by London-based Bende that has an original disco feel. Blende has done a lot of remixes for some heavy hitters
There is also a nice remix collection on Blende’s SC for this track.
Amp Live is a hip-hop producer and released this remix a while back, although I only discovered it within the past four months or so (from the Coding Soundtrack room on Turntable.fm). I’m not sure how to label this track exactly (except it’s awesome and you should totally listen to it). It’s got a modern-meets-vintage feel to it, which I love and Blake Hazard’s vocals are so earthy and warm. Amp Live picks up the tempo a bit from the original with an obvious hip-hop-inspired beat so you don’t fall asleep (the original does that to me, although it’s great for relaxing to) and he’s layered it well so if you didn’t see it was a remix, you wouldn’t even know. You can get this and other remixes in a special The Submarines remix CD available on iTunes.
I would also recommend The Submarines stuff by themselves too.
