Marsheaux are back (and I’m loving the Hipstamatic promo shot)! and who knew their voice would be such a perfect fit for the dance floor because Can You Stop Me has a throbbing tribal back beat that perfectly compliments their whispery vocal stylings. I am impressed by this new direction and am eagerly awaiting more. Can You Stop Me will be released as a limited edition single, followed by a cd release in June which will FINALLY feature the remixes of So Far which I wrote about here. And for the best news of all, I hear the new album is now scheduled for November.
Update: Marsheaux tweets about this post.

I am escaping NYC this weekend and its miserable weather and heading to the Caribbean with my family to celebrate my mother’s 65 birthday. I will be gone for a week, but promise to return refreshed and mostly likely burnt to a crisp. To get me in the proper mood, I am playing on loop this classic Marsheaux track from their 2009’s brilliant album, Lumineux Noir. Summer is a blissful track, and the video perfectly personifies my days lying on the beach as I duck to avoid all those pesky flying stingrays.
Rumor has it, that the new Marsheaux album is coming out later this year and I am stoked! This will undoubtedly be one of the top albums of the year. If you like classic Ladytron and Client, you’ll LOVE LOVE LOVE this Greek band.
To tie us over for the new album, I am also going to let my readers preview and download a mix of the new track by Rolla Scape, Heaven Is Real with features vocals by Marsheaux.
On a side note, I was just want to thank NewNowNext for posting my review of the OMD concert on Tuesday. It means a lot to me that a band I love and care about so much can reach tens of thousands of readers through my review, many of whom may be discovering them for the first time.
Go to the review on NewNowNext, read my article and see some great concert shots…
I am leaving for holiday on Sunday and won’t have access to new music, nor my computer, so this will be my last post until I get back (about 2 weeks) so for the 3 of you reading my blog (and 2 of those are coming with me), please be patient and I shall reward you plenty when I return.
