Lahannya - the voice of industrial club act Soman and resident DJ at London's Slimelight club - is now presenting her own project, which she wryly describes as dark alternative rock flirting with electro.

Theire name is MUMBLE RUMBLE and this all-female quartet was formed in Bologna (Italy) in 1990.

STYLE
Chasing Eva is primarily a female vocal album built around guitars and other live instruments, bound together with quirky electronica and crisp programmed beats. This is an album with a very contemporary sound both vocally and musically. Melanie Garside (AKA Maple Bee) uses her voice creatively - in whispers, confiding, intimate - close-up, spoken, distant, passionate and just plain good singing.

MOOD
The richly textured gothic aesthetic of the cover art appropriately sets the mood fo...

CTRL+Z >>

Sort of like a mixture of Le Tigre, Chicks on Speed, those little noises your computer makes, and roadkill, CTRL+Z comes roaring out of the midwest bent on doing one thing - as much nothing as possible. CTRL+Z consists of DJ Persy who makes the music and the voices while DJ Tenchi comes up with song names and make silly faces.
