Sky Ferreira is an ElectroPop singer, model and actress from Los Angeles, California. She stared out on MySpace which is how she built her buzz and shortly before her 15th birthday, she caught the attention of Swedish producers Bloodshy & Avant by sending them a message through the social networking site. The producers were impressed and subsequently decided to work with her. She signed to Parlophone in July 2009 and subsequently appeared in the video for 'Pop the Glock' by Uffie and it's been non-stop for her since then. Her song 'Obessions' is featured on the Vampire Diaries soundtrack. Here's her take on Lana Del Rey's 'Blue Jeans'.
Jenny O. is from Los Angeles and I've read that her music reflects California's 'roots of sunshine and slow-paced atmosphere' and after listening to all her tracks on 'SoundCloud' I felt quite spaced out. You can watch the video for this track here. 'Well, OK Honey' is the first track from her 2010 self released 'Home EP'. I discovered her music whilst working on my gig guide and saw that Birmingham Promoters had booked her for a show at the Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath, tomorrow night and looked her up out of curiosity, liked what I heard and then went on a mini-mission to find this download to share with you. Her voice and songs remind me of a cheery upbeat Alessi's Ark. Have a listen and if you're in the area tomorrow, there's far worse ways to spend a Tuesday evening then going to see her.
Making your music folder better, one song at a time.
_Pretty much everyday I seem to find some amazing exclusive tracks that
some awesome artists are giving away for free as a special one off
promotion. Today, it occured to me that instead of just downloading
them, maybe reposting them on facebook if they're special enough/someone I know and
then moving on, I should start a little music blog on here. Even if it
doesn't last forever, it's still a free song for you each day that it
does! I'd say the character of this blog is mostly electropop and singer/songwriter but I've got plans for mathcore, post-rock and glitch-hop. A lot of these tracks have a download limit of 100 so get in there on the quick. I'd also point out that a lot of the songs will need renaming once you've downloaded them so I'd do them one at a time.
