Owlle – Enjoy The Silence

If you're like me and loved Owlle's remix of Heaven, then I think you'll love her cover of "Enjoy The Silence" that she just uploaded to her Soundcloud page. Her take is a stripped down piano version that reminds me more of the original demo or Harmonium version. This was recorded live and features Richard Lornac on piano. A few tweaks here and there, but a very beautiful take on the song. While her remix of Heaven was a full electronic piece, her cover is very minimal with her powerful, but restrained, vocal that really is just a wonderful listen. Check it out for yourself! https://soundcloud.com/owlle/enjoy-the-silence-depeche-mode

12 years ago today the world lost the genius that is Frank Tovey. I logged into Facebook this morning and was thrilled to see a photo album of Frank that Mute Records had posted up on their page. Add to that a playlist on Spotify as well! We all know the story of Depeche, Fad Gadget, Mute etc.. so I won't bore you with that, but I highly recommend checking out the photo album if you're a fan. I shared a few here, but to see the full album head over to the album on the Mute FB page. While you're there, be sure to give the page a Like too! Mute's description and playlist link: Frank Tovey....
