MEET ME IN THE RED SKY.

All aboard the Clare Maguire express, next stop: the stars. After what seems like an eternity, Ms. Maguire's debut single proper has finally arrived in the form of "Ain't Nobody", a dramatic stunner that showcases the Birmingham chanteuse's booming voice and knack for the epic. While it lacks the chart toppling potential possessed by some of the other Clare tracks we've heard behind closed doors, it's a perfect introduction to her expansive pop sound. Complete with a brilliant remix package featuring killer efforts from the likes of Coyote and Memory Tapes (download the latter below) and a windswept epic of a video that channels "Frozen"-era Madonna, "Ain't Nobody" drops 18th October as Polydor readies her debut album Light After Dark for release in early 2011.

I agree with anon, this is some pretty bland uninteresting music.

Racist prick. She is going to be huge thanks for this.

NEVS said...

so bad omg
Ellie Goulding is the songwriter with more followers on twitter (fuck you Lady Gaga and Lily Allen bullshiiit)

too bad Starsmith ruined her talent by turning Ellie to ''ELECTRO BULLSHIT'' instead of ''AWESOME-ELECTRO-POST-FOLK-ROCK''

no one will understand that...
but her vocals are simply amazing..

NEVS said...

what i mean with ''Electro-Bullshit'' artists are, for example:

-Frankmusik (i have my name in this album, lol)

- Erik Hassle (oh shit, i like the PLUGS remix of Don't Bring Flowers, but I just don't scrobble it on last.fm because i'm not a fan of Erik Hassle)

-Dan Black (likes JAI PAUL who is described as ''THE BEST NEW THING AROUND'': http://www.myspace.com/jaipaulmusic )

and maybe some JAKWOB?? IF U'ALL R LOOKING FOR GOOD DUBSTEP PRODUCERS, TRY Pariah remix of UNDER THE SHEETS by the wonderful Ellie Goulding: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/under-the-sheets-ep/id338264167


too much disappointment from :
Passion Pit
Esser
Yes Giantess
Baby Monster
Penguin Prison
Golden Silvers
Monarchy
Silver Columns
Alan Pownall

try instead: GYPSY & THE CAT, TIM & JEAN.

PNAU 2ND ALBUM OUT THIS YEAR, AMZEEE!
peace x

PS - I was reading the comments about the new Marina & her shining Diamonds on the POPJUSTICE forum, and all the people were so excited about the FRED FALKE remix, ANOTHER BULLSHIT ARTIST..

Yes yes yes!

i'm the anon from the first comment,

not trying to be a dick or whatever, but this is just like, really really typical bargain bin adult contempo. remember the theme song to dawsons creek? it's like that. i imagine a group of women in long dresses making applique jean vests in kansas.

i'm not on board with you nevs, you dislike too many generally talented artists, but still, not this. yeesh!

and for that matter - i actually DO agree about ellie goulding. she is a great, mega talent, but i wish she didn't do the same electro auto tuney stuff. yeah it's a recipe to be mega popular, but i think she could have been even better, even more unique, and less obvious!

Carl said...

This is like Stevie Nicks 2010. Ambitious and fresh.

Justin said...

Shit man, this video is next level!

Louise said...

Wow!

Fuck this is beyond!

The video was great in the way "great" sex is great but you don't actually cum. And I loved the song. (natalie merchant??? you probably think all asians look the same, too...)

oh sweet lord, though, this remix is TERRIBLE!!! I am normally at least indifferent to remixes posted here, but the Memory Tapes interpretation is so tonally OFFENSIVE in it's tone-deaf dissonance - without dissonant PURPOSE - that, for the first time ever, I DELETED a neon gold download.

You guys... if you're gonna take it to the next level, make sure your level doesn't smell like shit. Nobody wants to hang out on the shit level. It's just... not a good look.
