good morning & happy st. patrick’s day – don’t forget to wear green! this week i’m switching up my ‘monday .mp3’ column a bit simply because i’m totally enamored with ‘soul pop’ welsh singer duffy (join her on myspace) who i’ve posted about on here before – right now there’s a ton of things going on with her that i thought was worthy of sharing with you all! she just played her first gig in the states at SXSW and she’s also playing a sold out show at NYC’s hiro ballroom tonight – oh i’d kill to be in the audience! i should have taken my ass down to austin TX to see duffy live but unfortunately i don’t have a ton of vacation time yet i’m sure she’ll make it out to los angeles at some point…
duffy’s debut album rockferry was released earlier this month overseas and will hit the states on may 18th! (last week her hit UK single mercy was the free itune of the week which you can still download) over the weekend i was determined to find her album which i did and i’m happy to report it’s just as excellent as i thought it might be! below are a few pictures of her performing at the levi’s/fader fort party along with a video of her doing a stripped down version of mercy (also catch her doing an incredible cover of hot chip‘s ready for the floor) plus there’s links to my previous posts on her (the mercy remix is killer) i bet duffy is going to be huge this year – easily a grammy nominee for best new artist! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!
