MIRROR isn’t a band in the traditional sense, but more of a multimedia project helmed by Thomas Anselmi that brings in various contributors. One of those is Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan who is featured in this video of “Nostalgia”. The tune is achingly melancholic suiting those Slavic locations of Poland and the Czech Republic flitting by on the screen.

Deanne Sole recently said of African artists Amadou & Mariam: “Back in the 1990s, Amadou & Mariam launched themselves on a course of solid Mali-blues, pushing new things with each album, eventually planting themselves firmly and plateauing in goodness. Now they seem to be looking for ways to incorporate Western electronic pop—not the very mainstream, thrusting kind, but the offbeat sort that bubbles around the edges of things and attracts loving audiences on blogs runs by people who pride themselves on their ability to discover the unexpected.” Witness the new video for “Masiteladi” off Welcome to Mali with its indie friendly animation.
