Hear Tina Malia’s Electronic Epiphany tonight on Echoes.
When we first met Tina Malia in 2001, she was writing ethereal singer-songwriter tunes while gearing up for intoning kirtan chants with Jai Uttal. All of it was based in acoustic sounds. But on her new CD, The Lost Frontier, Malia has sculpted an album of deep dream pop with electronic grooves and moods. It’s a major stylistic and imagistic shift for the artist.
Tina Malia: For all these years in my musical career I was avidly against electronic music. I thought it was evil, I mean I really did. It was the antithesis of music to me. It was the antithesis of nature. And then one day I was at this festival and I heard some electronic music and I just couldn’t help myself. It was so beautiful and I fell in love with it.
The result is one of the most beautiful Dream Pop albums of the last year. Hear about Tina Malia’s electronic conversion and the evolution of a hippie chick tonight on Echoes.
