Georgia’s dark experimental pop was a straight shot for my heart when I first heard it over a year ago. I promptly ordered the young and edgy UK artist’s innovative self titled debut album. I loved every iota of that underrated and overlooked record. Not only does Georgia push the envelope when it comes to grimy bold pop and gritty bristling electronica on her songs, but she also showcases her multi-instrument and production skills. Yes, Georgia plays drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, piano, kora, and sings. In the new music video for Feel It, her latest single, she aims to inspire a new generation of drummers and musicians. Prepare to be bewitched by her fierce charisma and contagious sonic handiwork. Feel It can be purchased now from iTunes. As for Georgia, I’m ready to watch her buzz grow. After all, she’s toured with some fabulous talent this past year and she’s about to tour with the Flaming Lips. I have a feeling this is going to be her year.

This one’s a MUST share. Call To Be from Dana Buoy is a sweeping and soaring piece of music with great Afro beats and percussion. Dana Buoy is the solo project of Dana Janssen, who is the percussionist for Akron/Family.  His debut album releases in May titled Summer Bodies.

I’m still oh so antsy waiting for an album from Niki & the Dove. Come on, when? WHENNnnNN? They’ve begun their first actual tour in the UK despite no album. I know a lot of you are waiting on a debut from them too. Patience, my friends, patience (or so I’m telling myself). The rumors are that their live shows so far are ridiculously good. Here’s a high quality recording of their live show… are you ready? Ohai there, awesome Swedish electro pop!
