Marina Lambrini Diamandis, better known as Marina and the Diamonds, is a Greek singer/songwriter based in the UK. Her stage name comes, not from any backing band, but from a literal translation of her last name. She has a style that can be best described as New Wave indie pop.

Take a listen to this song from her debut studio album, The Family Jewels:

 

I Am Not A Robot

Ska Theme Songs

Today, we won’t be focusing on just one artist’s or band’s work, but instead on the genre of Ska. Ska originated in Jamaica in the 1950s, predating reggae and rocksteady. There are three periods Ska music is divided into chronologically. Pop over to Wikipedia if you really want to learn about them. Otherwise, scroll down and enjoy.

Lonely Island Remixes

I’m sure you’ve heard of The Lonely Island. They’re a comedy group made of up Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer that does a lot of musical parodies. Recently, they just released a single called I Just Had Sex featuring Akon. If you haven’t heard it yet, pop over to youtube and listen to it. After you’re done there, listen to these two remixes, one a bit more of a trance remix and the other an electrohouse type deal. Either way, they’re pretty danceable.

Chiddy Bang and K os: Cool New Songs

We cannot legally give you links to download these songs. However, if your worth your weight, there are plenty of places to get these for free, but if you really like them, buy them off iTunes.

The Love Song —K os

I guess Canada is good for something, this rapper/producer out of Toronto uses a variety of genres from rap to reggae to convey his lyrically based music.  K os (pronounced chaos) focuses on a positive message and frequently criticizes mainstream hip hop for being too centered on money and violence.
Here We Go —Chiddy Bang
These rising stars from Philly rely on sampling and unique electronic based instrumentals provided by Noah “Xaphoon Jones” Beresin coupled with quick and clever wordplay from Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege.  The two met at Drexel University and have been jamming ever since.  Check out “Chiddy Bang: The Preview” for more.
