Not too long ago, she posted a fantastic introduction to an up and coming young Electronica star in her article: 80’s (and sometimes 00’s) Music Rules ~ Introducing Marilyn Roxie.
After reading Miss Parker's glowing review, I downloaded Ms. Roxie's self released album, 2009's New Limerent Object, which is/was being distributed as a free download.
Once I started listening to it, I was amazed by the proverbial outside of the box creativity that greeted me. From the ethereal to the surreal, it is an eclectic mix of electronica ear candy.
- Drift Along/Distortion takes us on a ride as we drift through a surreal musicscape.
- And There I Was has a silk road flavouring to it.
- Indigo has a great depth in its simplicity and could be the electronica of parlour music.
- Out in the Moonlight emits a fantastic Middle Eastern sound.
If you want a hear something first, below is the just released video for Indigo.
