The 11 Best Songs By Morcheeba
I spent the day at E3 playing all the new video games in the coming years. Playstation 3 has "Move" which is a wand like the Wii...Xbox has Kinect which has no controller whatsoever. When I think of the future of video games I get excited. Technology is giving developpers the ability to create games that we once only dreamed of playing.
When it come to music, I feel the exact opposite. To me technology is music's biggest enemy, not its ally. The more produced a song sounds, the less like a song it sounds. Production has the power to clean out all the background noise, the frayed sound waves, giving the music a crisp & clean sound. But all that extraneous snippets is what gives the song personality. It's the little negative that makes the song positive.
With video games I look to the future, with music I'd rather live in the past.
Glad to see Skye Edwards feels the same way and has rejoined the brothers in Morcheeba.
