I’m giving away 10 COPIES of La Roux’s Quicksand EP along with…STICKERS!!!! To enter, please send a blank e-mail to [email protected]. North American entries only (Sorry!) Winners will be notified at noon on Friday, June 6!
If you’ve even read my blog at all, you’d know that 2009 is all about the quirky electro-pop princesses-in-training: Little Boots, La Roux, Florence and the Machine, Marina & The Diamonds, etc. etc.
Forward thinking and ’80’s synth-pop inspired (but don’t call her a novelty act!), La Roux lead Elly Jackson is quickly becoming one of the most talked about artists of ’09 for her unusual warble, highly maintained coif, and oft-vocalized criticism of modern pop, fashion, and culture.
While some other blogs may be painting these girls as rivals, I prefer to think of them as perfectly lovely in their own right. That way, their record labels love me equally!
But honestly…it’s no fun to root for only one of ’em when they’re supplying totally different sounds.
The Quicksand EP includes:
1. Quicksand (Album Version)
2. Quicksand (Mad Decent Remix No. 1)
3. In For The Kill (Skream’s Let’s Get Ravey Remix)
