First new Dead Can Dance material since 16 years: A radio edit of “Amnesia” (Where do they play such music on the radio?), taken from the upcoming Anastasis album, which will be released in August.

OK, OK, you know the drill: You want this, you need this - and you’ll get this for free. All that Dead Can Dance asks you is a valid e-Mail-address to add you to their mailing list (you can unsubscribe immediately), what you get is their FIFTH free Live EP featuring the tracks
with almost half an hour of excellent live performances.
If you’ve download the previous three “Live Happenings”-EPs, you know, you want this (if not, you should download them, check this article to find the previous links). Excellent world music / art pop / industrial (call it whatever you want) by one of the most fascinating boarder crossing duos.
They did it again: A third free Live-EP by Dead Can Dance has been published, released as a teaser for the upcoming world tour and new album.
At least as good as the two EP before. Don’t miss it!
Check out the other two EPs too:
Did you enjoy the first part of the Dead Can Dance Live EP a couple of weeks ago? Well, here’s part 2 with another four songs by the fabulous duo.
First the best Tori Amos release since ages with “Night of Hunters”, then the fantastic and glorious return of Björk with “Biophilia”… and now a very promising single from the forthcoming Kate Bush album “50 Words for Snow”. The most important women in pop/rock music are back for good.
I guess, Dead Can Dance really don’t need no introduction, so without further ado: Grab this! It’s free! It’s over 20 Minutes of great stuff. It’s a Live-EP. It’s awesome.

My Brightest Diamond - All Things Will Unwind - “Making of” Documentary, Part 1: Visuals
I’m really looking forward to this release. Shara Worden (aka. My Brightest Diamond) is one of the very few artist I know, that is able to blend contemporary music with popular songs structures into something really unique. Plus I love her voice … and her style(s).
Anybody into Shara Worden aka. My Brightest Diamond here? Well, since I first heard her music, I fell in love with her voice and her music. Soon her third album will be released and I’m really looking forward to that. In the meantime, I will enjoy this free download of a remix of her today released single “Be Brave”.
PS.: The player/download doesn’t work (»This track is currently not available«)? Go to this page to listen & download.
And here’s the offical video:
I really love classical music, but as you might know I like good pop music too, as well as ambient music (I like progressive rock and singer/songwriter too, but that’s another story). What I usually don’t like is what clever label manager call “crossover”, because all too often it means that some cute opera starlet is lilting some stupid sob stuff (preferably a couple of weeks before christmas) or some wrecked keyboard player from a once-upon-a-time rock band sells boring piano noodling or bad orchestral arrangements of cheesy melodies as Sonata or Symphony.
But there’s a whole new generation of artists combining the best of both worlds in a different way: Owen Pallett, Shara Worden a.k.a. My Brightest Diamond, Sarah Kirkland Snider on one side, chamber ensembles as yMusic and Brooklyn Rider on the other side show no particular respect for the old genre boarders and create a natural symbiosis of classical and popular music.
Check out this wonderful mix of classical music, ambient and art pop by Bloomington, Indiana quartet Pantree Owl. Their début “EP” features four beautiful electroacoustic numbers with soprano singer and pianist Christine Papania, electronic musician Ben Glawe and a chamber strings section with Garrett Semmlink on violin and Erika Zappia and viola.
Unfortunately it isn’t sure if they to continue the project and there isn’t much other material from Pantree Owl available. But if you like what you hear, please make sure, to check out (and download) this live set too:
Let’s keep our fingers crossed, that these four remarkable musicians find a way to continue their interesting explorations, possibly together or at least in a similar form.
