I Am Not A Robot [mp3]

The more I find out about Marina of Marina & The Diamonds, the more I really, really like her. This chick is not afraid to speak her mind, from calling Lady Gaga "the epitome of the word 'empty'," to discussing baby cheerleaders to bemusing about her Synesthesia (a neurological phenomenon that I would pay in KITTENS for). In addition, this Welsh-born singer believes her birthplace was "Ancient Greece" and one of her favorites, Britney Spears, is decked out as Jesus on her myspace. Her newest release is the Crown Jewels EP, which comes out physically in USA stores on June 22nd and features Marina's sizzling voice and attitude amongst electro-pop tunes that feature the repeating theme of "screw society, just be whoever you want to be." With those words in mind, check out a tune from the EP, and as always, if you like what you hear, go out and actually support the artist.
