New music: Huski will be adored.
I do believe the singer of electropop band Huski actually has a head. Huski are a duo consisting of a dude named Pike Galloway and a doe-eyed female vocalist named Maple Bee - yes, you read that right - who is also a member of Mediaeval Baebes, where she is known as Melanie Garside.
Huski's debut album, Love Peace Pain, is quite diverse - there are synthy pop delights mixd with organic songs like the ballad Everything Changes. Urtica channels Pet Shop Boys with its love peace pain chant and squizzy noises. Other reference points are Goldfrapp on the stompy Make Me Your Picture (is she singing "rape me" at one point?!) and Pleasure (especially that band's Out Of Love). I am quite impressed so far..
The album is available on iTunes US and UK. Note they have an MP3 available for download on their myspace page.
