(Eldia - nicely dark)

Eldia are a French Alternative/Experimental band I ran across a couple of years ago during one of my "six degrees of separation" experiments on My Space. Hitting Browse on MySpace is a little like playing the slots - sometimes it comes up jackpot and other times it's all lemons. There are just as many creepy, boring bands hoping to get your attention on MySpace as there is anywhere else. Fortunately, Eldia isn't one of them. They are an interesting band with an engaging style and completely top-notch production. It's pretty clearly obvious they have their sites on a more worldwide market than the French one, since all their vocals are in English and, if I didn't tell you they were based in Paris, you would never have known. Not that it makes any difference. I'm a big believer that music is the universal language and if they sing in English, French or Bulgarian, that shouldn't prevent you from experiencing something good. Remember, there's only two kinds of music - good music and bad music (thanks Louis Armstrong).

So tonight's track On Top Of The Cliff is off their new album, Yayaya and I would recommend checking out their MySpace page or Facebook and hearing what else they have going on. Don't take my word for it.

But you can if you want.
