Two free Martina Topley Bird downloads

Singer Martina Topley Bird is known in the U.K. for her work with the rapper Tricky. I don’t think she’s known in the U.S. for anything.

Got an interesting voice, though.

Martina’s new CD, “The Blue God,” comes out in a few weeks (overseas). A remix of the single “Poison” is available online as a FREE MP3.

Click here to hear it. Then follow this link to the music blog 3hive if you wanna download it.

Guess what else? You can also cop a freebie off Martina Topley Bird’s highly praised debut solo album, “Anything” (2004).

Click here to hear the title track, which is a cloudy alt-rock ballad.

Love Tricky and Martina's work w/him. her voice is lovely and unusual.

Danielle, I'm surprised that British black music hardly ever crosses over to the U.S. It's a damn shame.

Craig David made a little noise over here in 2000... and wasn't heard from again. But he's big in the U.K.

Estelle is getting a bit of buzz.

...I think Martina "favors" Zadie Smith.
