It’s official: MizMuze has caught her first cold of the season.  But even with the sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever, and needs to rest, I have mustered up enough strength to bring you the Song of the Day…

The King of Trip Hop, Tricky, released his ninth studio album, Mixed Race on 10/5/20/10 (on 9/27/2010 in the UK).  Tricky’s label, Domino Records describes the single “Murder Weapon” as “a reworking of the classic dancehall hit from Jamaican-born Echo Minott, originally released in the early ’90s.  Tricky fell in love with the track and was determined to hear how it would sound with a female vocalist (in a similar fashion to his reworking of “Black Steel” with Martina Topley-Bird).  Tricky here enrolls Irish-Italian Franky Riley, who has toured as Tricky’s vocalist for two years and makes her recording debut on his new album Mixed Race.”

Tricky will be rockin’ a rhyme that’s right on time at The Independent in San Francisco on 12/21/2010…

Tricky – Murder Weapon




Song of the Day – Friday 10/1/2010 Niva October 1, 2010

Formerly The Quietboy, Christian Niva of Stockholm, Sweden is now using the new moniker, Niva.  Perhaps Niva thought it redundant to call himself The Quietboy as his music is quiet, lulling, languidly cool, yet punctuated with soft dance grooves.

Niva’s latest EP, Feverish Dreams is scheduled for release on 10/25/2010.  Check out his Bandcamp page where you can sample some of his past and present work…

Niva – Ghost In My Head



Song of the Day – Friday 4/23/2010 Goldfrapp April 23, 2010

Put on your lip gloss, feather your hair, and grab your leg-warmers…It’s rollerdisco time!

Alison Goldfapp and Will Gregory of Goldfrapp are bringin’ the dance hits 80’s style.  On the English duo’s latest album, Head First, which was released last month, the band summons the late 70’s early 80’s disco era with their Blondie, Abba, and ELO tunes.  Ahhh…it’s enough to make you wanna head over to Aloha Roller Palace to rex and Shoot-the-duck…

Catch Goldfrapp dance and sing the night away under the mirrorball on 6/26/2010 at the Fox Theater in Oakland.

Goldfrapp – Rocket

Song of the Day – Tuesday 2/2/2010 Sister Crayon March 2, 2010

This Sacramento quartet started off as a one-woman-band, with Terra Lopez making ambient recordings alone in her bedroom. However, in the past year Sister Crayon isn’t as lonely, and has now morphed into a four-piece creating experimental trip hop, with a hint of electonica…

Sister Crayon – (in) Reverse

Sister Crayon’s debut album “Bellow” is scheduled for release in mid-2010 and they will be opening for Frank Turner at the Rickshaw Stop on 4/14/2010:
