GOING PLACES#1 - DANIEL SMITH (US) / BOBBY BABY (S) RELEASED 30 JUNE 2006 Price: 5 EURO (approx $7) + postage Click to reach our paypal-enabled webshop selections streaming at: www.myspace.com/goingplaces7quot Daniel Smith: Quite Alright Everything You Said Bobby Baby: Bobby Lads Are Fun Daniel Smith hails from Albuquerque, New Mexico and is a well-kept secret. With a very gentle, sincere voice accompanied by fingerpicking guitar and eerie organ and piano, he presents songs with melodies that's both unexpected and lovely. Smith presents himself in a way reminicent of M Ward's, Bright Eyes' and Mercury Rev's most acoustic moments. We're proud to present this mastermind's first release on record ever. www.danielsmithmusic.com Our Swedish favourite act, Bobby Baby aka Ella Blixt is currently making herself more and more wellknown. With one foot in electronic landscapes and the other one in solid organic grounds. Her newly released debut EP Loves to Dance on UK label Red Letter Records is definitely one of the best releases this year and we're so happy to team up with her at this early stage of her career. We're releasing two songs from her mp3back-catalogue. It's easy to compare her to Nordic colleagues The Knife and Múm, but you can't close your eyes to her brilliant 60's pop nerve for melodies and sense for lyrics. Roberta Flack meets Beth Orton meets Essex Green meets Belle and Sebastian meets something very unique and brilliant. www.bobbybaby.net
