Monday, May 05, 2008Music Monday...
Alright, it's that time of the week again where I share my music loves du jour...or in this case, music loves in the last year or so. It's French-Finnish duo The Dø (pronounced 'doh'), singer Olivia B.Merilahti sounds like the love-child of PJ Harvey and Karen O with her languid, too-cool-for-school wailing, laid over rhythms and melodies which draw influences from all over the place. They switch from indie-pop melodies to hip-hop beats and rap effortlessly, binding genres in way that is impossible for most bands. I saw them live last year and if you get a chance to see them, do, they put on an excellent show!
