M.I.A

Anyone like her?
For those of you who haven't heard of her, she's an MC of sorts - MCing/dance. Her music is a bit of an acquired taste, I guess, but she's pretty popular in the underground scene (or something like that. I am not qualified to talk about the underground scene) and has recently started to break through into mainstream. Her debut album on a major label, Arular, was released recently. I understand she played some festival in the US (it may have been Coachella...) and was quite well received.

Yes! I didn't think her music was my speed, but based on all the hype, I gave it a go and absolutely love the CD.

i decided to give this a listen based on heartland girl's recommendation a while ago, and it's quite good. not sure about her being underground (i don't even know what that means, anyway). m.i.a. got a pretty good review from pitchfork and i think she's been pretty popular ever since.

10 dollar is a great track

what can i get for 10 dollar? anyting you waaaaant

I got to hear most of the songs off the album a few months back when jjj featured it. It's very good. Obvious Missy Elliot influences (which is not a bad thing), upbeat and danceable.

This is pretty behind-the-times, so I wanted to add it to this pre-existing thread rather than junkin' the place up with another one which'll probably get, like, a reply.

But is anybody else as disturbed as I am by the use of "Galang" in a Honda commercial, or whatever it is? I mean, seriously...fucked up. Totally fucked up.

I don't really see it on television all that much anymore (since the NFL playoffs ended, though, I'm watching less television all the time...my observations are questionable at the very best), but I'm sure others do or at least have.

M.I.A. + Cars...? WTF?

I don't know anything about that, no comment, but I usually have no problem with musicians licensing music. That gets more dough to feed the family, so to speak. It's their thing, they do what they want with it.

Anyway, I think she's really talented but the only song that's stuck with me so far is 'Bucky Done Gun'. I also think it's nice there's that Justine Frischmann connection considering I was big on Elastica a few years back.

I have Arular and it's a pretty good record, she can mix different styles and make them sound good

One of my top five albums of last year. Still catchy and as irresistible as ever.

I loved the first record, and now, I am trying to get into the new one -- Kala -- released last week.

She references the Pixies in a weird way, I think I like that .

Anyone else still digging her?

Anyone else digging how "Paper Planes" rips the Clash? Specifically "Straight to Hell"?

The song that trips Pixies is "20 Dollar," by the way.

I haven't picked up the CD yet, but it's at the top of my list of CDs to buy.
