Findlay - Forgotten Pleasures
Rarely to you hear electro pop with this much attitude. But Manchester-raised, London-based Natalie Findlay is appears to be the rare artist that can straddle the indie rock/electro pop divide and make both camps quite happy indeed. Her thirteen songs on Forgotten Pleasures make stops in other sub-genres as well, and all of them work. The success is due to Findlay's powerful but extraordinarily versatile vocals, but also the talent of her collaborators. Co-producer Jules Apollinaire contributed keys, bass and guitar, while Ben Simon played guitar and Christina Lamas played drums. Additional assistance came from Carl Barat (composition on "St. Elmo's Fire"), and producers Jake Gosling, Samy Osta, and Flood.
Forgotten Pleasures is out now via Findlay's Mint Records, BMG, and The End Records. Check your favorite online store. And so you don't easily forget the pleasures of Forgotten Pleasures, enjoy a few tracks below.
