New Kicks

A while back I used to enjoy the trancy laid back grooves with the haunting female vocals of the Sneaker Pimps. Well, I just found a new pair of shoes I like : ROYKSOPP. Funny thing is, their music has been just under the surface of my life experience for a few years now. "Poor Leno" was featured on EA Sports snowboarding game SSX. It provided a focused but chilled soundtrack for carving ridiculous lines on a virtual mountain.

More recently, I've been caught singing "Remind Me", the track featured in the GEICO caveman spot set on an airport moving sidewalk. This particular song doesn't feature a female vocalist, but bare with me.

'What Else Is There' is what made the Sneaker Pimps connection for me. Check it out on - the best of the web, imnsho.

I'm still learning about this band, but finding the GEICO track has made this sunny Saturday morning complete.

And if you like a little classic MJ with your 21st century down tempo click here.

Royksopp = excellent choice!
Just an FYI: The female vocalist on "What Else Is There" is the singer from The Knife.
