Amanda Blank...Haven't been excited about an album like this for years

I'm so excited to hear the new Amanda Blank album. I first got to know Blank when she appeared on the Spank Rock album Bangers & Cash, which I previously reviewed on this blog. She rules.

In writing this blog I have learned Blank appeared on an official remix for Britney Spears' "Gimme More" by Eli Escobar and Doug Grayson, which I will now have to obsessively track down. (EDIT: SEE BELOW) Weird, but good discovery. In related news, my other favourite music of late is Miike Snow, 2/3 of which is Bloodshy & Avant, who produced, most famously, Toxic, and a number of Britney's best and most interesting songs, like Freakshow (one of only 2 Spears-penned tracks from the awesome Blackout album) and the rumoured next single from Circus Unusual You.( Both of which sound pretty terrible over computer speakers - lately I've been pretty obsessed with high production value and suffice it to say nothing with good production sounds remotely correct on computer speakers.)


Here is the newly released video for the Amanda Blank lead single: Might like you better.

Bloodshy and Avant are currently in the studio with Spank Rock!!!! DYING!!!
