Illangelo ft. Phlo Finister: Clockwork - the incredible Sam Tiba Remix

Illangelo's 'Clockwork' is an soulful track, giving the idea of both our mechanical future and the search for humanity in sight of it.  Phlo Finister's voice has never sounded so beautiful, nor as haunting. Until now.  This was a new sound compared to what we were used to from the vocalist, and yet we are again astounded as Club Cheval's Sam Tiba provides his own take on the song.  This rendition twists that beautiful voice into something much lower, more ominous, and sets it against sparse, minimalist percussion.  The truth is despite this there's an optimistic tone to the song as the vocal runs the spectrum with the result sounding almost as if a duet.This track is perfectly timed, as 'Clockwork' was Bromance Records 16th release and Sam Tiba is next in line with 'Samuel'.  Get your hands on the original song here!

VIDEO: Illangelo ft. Phlo Finister 'Clockwork'

 

Lance Drake directed the monumental new video for Illangelo's 'Clockwork'.  The clip features Phlo Finister as we've never seen her before, and shows us a very barren, lonely future.  Where may people tire of the average music video, they'll be positively enthralled by this one.  Unable to look away, you'll be drawn in, fascinated, and kept in suspense.  What else could you expect from two artists so unorthodox and creative as Illangelo and Phlo Finister.  Initially the duo collaborated with the intention of contributing the track to a Bromance compilation.  

What happened instead is something far more exciting and inspiring.  Youthquaker is a new band, born of their sessions together and based upon the influences of 60's and 70's music and film, 90's trip hop, and the youth quake movement in 60's fashion.  'Projections' will be the first album, released in the form of several EPs, with volume 1 coming sometime this summer.  Get the single on iTunes.

Phlo Finister: Coca-Cola Classic

The first lady of Mod R & B has a new track out there for you.  'Coca Cola Classic' is a collaboration with her frequent production partner Benny Cassette, who did some tracks for the recent 'Poster Girl' EP.  There's no comparison to her voice and songwriting style, fashion sense and art direction for her releases.  In an age where it's quite easy to put a track together, design a cover and play superstar on the internet Phlo Finister is clearly the genuine article.  We can't wait for more music from her...

Phlo Finister: Poster Girl

Give your iTunes the gift of Phlo Finister's 'Poster Girl' EP.  We posted the track 'A Million Flowers' when we first heard it, and now we want you to get some more.  There are so many new artists out there in 2012, and we know you'll love this.  There's a timeless quality to this music that signifies a talent that can't be matched.  

Everything about this is unique.  From the selection of producers, to the lyrics, to the style of the cover art is significant to Phlo Finister.  That dark, soulful sound is something that is reached for, but rarely grasped.  Don't miss out, listen to 'Poster Girl' below or download it here!
