Don't Forget About Me: Mel Blatt


Last night I was introduced to Mel Blatt and she was just adorable in person as I would have imagined her to be.  I was never a huge All Saints fan to be honest, but Mel's solo stuff in 2005 really captivated me.  Her voice is soft and her soothing electronic pop sound, very well done - yet somewhat under-appreciated.

I hope Mel gets back in the studio at some time.  I'm sure she could teach these new pop gals a thing or two.

Enjoy my favourite Mel Blatt hits on the rewind today. Still fresh.

Don't You Forget About Me : Deepest Blue


Remember Deepest Blue?  They had a few hits in 2003 with their title anthem 'Deepest Blue' and 'Give It Away' which we quite liked.  We even bought the album.  And just like that - poof - the boys were gone. 

Well after a couple years of hiatus, Deepest Blue are back with their new single 'Miracle' which is again quite good, quite danceable and has some honest-to-goodness cool bassline stuff going on. 

Make sure to check out their MySpace page to hear a few different mixes of 'Miracle' which will be released some time April - we thinks you'll quite like em just as much as we do.

Don't You Forget About Me: Alex Parks


She is the pint-sized Cornwall girl who just happens to be so talented that she won the second season of BBC's Fame Academy here in the UK.  Her voice is just so magical and real that it's hard for anybody not to stop and say "Wow - girl has a set of lungs on her".  Her cover of Tears For Fears 'Mad World' is WAY better than the version that released by Gary Jules' from the Donnie Darko soundtrack and her two albums 'Introduction' and 'Honesty' are poignant efforts which delight our ears everytime we are feeling a bit mellow and chill.

Alex Parks has always been a little under-appreciated in the world of pop but it is apparent that when you see her live that she still has a sizable and dedicated fan base who appreciates her gripping and powerful voice.  Her song 'Cry' is one our favourite songs of all time so having said that, if you haven't checked out the wonderful vocal stylings of Alex Parks, then do so in our little video vault below or her website.  And if you have forgotten about her already like yesterday's news, isn't it time you take another listen today?  Maybe that's what it takes eh?
