Ah, bossanova. You can just lose yourself to the rhythms and almost feel yourself in the tropical sands of… Sweden? Yeah, Sweden. This is one of the great things about Creative Commons. You can take vocals from one place, add in music from another, and end up with something completely new.
Released in 2007, this song is part of an album that was put together using samples from CCMixter’s Curve Music contest and original music.
I was starting to feel bad due to the underrepresentation of metal on SotC, but then I ran into this song and I KNEW WHAT I MUST DO. Enter Russian melodic metal group Alexandria and their track “Flock of Birds”. I’m totally digging this song. You can grab it on Jamendo.
Dig this bit of pop/funk from Russian group Funky Stereo. It’s called “Funny Life” and it’s from their album “First and Last” featuring their new lead singer Alexandra Mironenko. You can download the whole album on Jamendo.
