s/he – Good To Get Away

Well I have  a soft spot for singer    Michelle Chamuel (aka. Reverb Junkie  and  lead singer for Ella Riot) for many reasons.   One of which is her delicate balance of words and emotion on her tracks.  She always seems to manage to hit that “sweet spot” vocally and  lyrically, with her tracks.   And this track is no different.  From her upcoming full length which shes her teaming up with fellow Ella Riot bandmate Tyler Duncan, under the name of  “s/he“, is Good To Get Away, enjoy!

Hans Zimmer (ft.The Reverb Junkie) – Angelica [Part of the Plan] (Odd Year Edit)

If you like Gotan Project or the Cafe Del Mar series of chillout music with International flavor, then this track will be a win for you. The track makes use of stems from the soundtrack written and produced by Hans Zimmer from the movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Also features Rodrigo y Gabriela on acoustic guitars. With this mix, The Reverb Junkie made an incredible arrangement and went one step further by writing her song on-top of it. From which I took the track and added all the percussive elements, hence the “Odd Year Edit” on the track name.

Dntel – Rather Be With You (ft. Reverb Junkie)

Oh, oh, oh, love the dark vibe on this and the electronic buzz in the intro.     So this was spawned on indabamusic.com as a contest entry for Jimmy Tamborello of Postal Service fame.   Reverb Junkie is the solo venture from My Dear Disco lead singer Michelle Chamue.

By the way, let this track breath for the first 40 seconds till Michelle’s voice kicks in – shear bliss.
