Tunesday: Hide and Seek

When I first heard this song I was blown away. I sure hadn't heard anything like it before, and I still haven't.

Here it is: Hide and Seek
Artist: Imogen Heap.
Album: Speak for Yourself

Happy Listening.

Here's me and Seth at her concert:

And here's that crazy lady, Imogen, singing Hide and Seek, with that crazy instrument whose name I always forget:

Is the song loading onto the site when you click on the link? Can you guys hear this?

It's working on our laptop, but not the other computer.

It works for me.

But I don't usually "stream" music directly from the internet when I want to listen to it -- I download it to my local hard drive and then play it from there.

Then I can keep it for later listening, as well as avoiding the "buffering" if the internet connection is congested.

And yes, very cool and unique song.

Oooh, I can hear it! I like how her voice sounds like an accordian. One of my good friends has been speaking of this woman for a long time, but this is the first time I've actually heard her sing. I like it!

It's a keytar, Fancy. A keytar.

FancyPants said...

A keytar! That's it.

She was also in a band called Frou Frou. Check that out too... it's all really good.

Susanne said...

Interesting! I've heard of her before, but I'd never listened to her music. Thanks for sharing!

Brody,

Yeah, I like Frou Frou alot. I could never get into "Details" as much as Imogen's solo "Speak for Yourself." But I especially like "Let Go," and "Psychobabble" and "The Dumbing Down of Love" from Frou Frou's record. I had a hell of a time finding that record for my bro when it first came out. Had to look EVERYWHERE...I guess that was before iTunes was big and grand.

I always wondered why she went solo, but considering I like her solo album better, it seems it was a pretty good move.

Susanne,

You're welcome!

She also dances really weird.

Had I known and been around, I really would have liked to have seen her. I have her CD and was blown away first time I heard Hide and Seek.

I do love Frou Frou too...

DR,

She was really great live. It was just her, her keyboard, and her Mac. She did crazy stuff with live vocal loops...and then of course, her keytar. And this cellist played with her some of the time. It was rad!

We saw her at Warehouse Live in Houston where you stand up the whole time squished like sardines in the great big room. Do you know which one I'm talking about? The one where if you don't stand your ground you'll be pushed over by drunk people trying to get a better view? Yeah. I was tough and was not pushed over. Take that, drunk people. =-)
