Another Fine Piece from Marie Davidson

maryLooking back, or listening back, at the buzz from SXSW, several of our friends consistently through Marie Davidson at us, hoping we could get a chance to check her out.  After spending quite a bit of time with her new album, Un Autre Voyage, I can definitely get behind the hype, so it’s only fair that I share her latest single.  While constructed largely as an unraveling electronic piece, her spoken vocals add an extra layer that makes the song impactful.  Don’t look for her to hit you over the head with throbbing beats, but rather let her guide you through the caverns of her work.  Holodeck Records releases the new album on April 14th.

Marie Davidson Crafts Herself Some IDM

marieEDM gets all the hype nowadays, but there are small circles that appreciate the original days where the I replaced the E, making ambient/techno in a smarter, possibly less consumable, manner. On Marie Davidson‘s latest single, it’s clear to me that she’s stepping forward to grab the reins.  There’s an immediate propulsion to the tune, though it’s not an out-and-out beat to make the kids pump their fists.  Little electronic bleeps burst through while Davidson speaks in French atop her constructed piece.  This is the sort of electronic music I can get behind; look out for Un Autre Voyage via Holodeck Records on April 14th.
