It's time for some Darkwave music, and who better than Collide with their amazing new album Counting to Zero.
Based in Los Angeles, where everyone fights tirelessly for even a sliver of limelight, the band Collide has managed to build a very loyal and devoted following. And it seems they’ve done it the old-fashioned way too…by consistently writing and producing amazing records.Collide is definitely in my current playlist, and will be for some time.
With their latest offering, Collide, the sonically boundless duo of kaRIN (vocals) and Statik (everything electronic)returns to their well-established form. Counting To Zero is set to hit the streets on September 27th 2011. Having carved out a prominent niche for themselves within the darkwave and electronica genres, this album will once again be independently self-released on the band’s own label Noiseplus Music.
And because it's all great music and we want to hear as much as we can, here's a teaser for the album.
And then i found this terrific acoustic version of a Pink Floyd classic. I just love this girl's beautiful voice. Amazing!
This was done while we were filming our acoustic sessions for our "Like the Hunted" DVD in 2005. After we finished our songs, kaRIN, Roger, and Scott did a few impromptu jams with Statik filming and recording. This was one of our inspirations for our last album "These Eyes Before". The guitar parts in this recording were used in the final album version of the song.
This was the second take we did of "Breathe". It was "off the cuff", there's some goofs, and it's not perfect, but we hope you like it!
And of course then there is the sexiest version ever of this classic.
