The New Girls on Mark Ronson's Block

ALEXANDRIA SYMONDS
Super-producer Mark Ronson is no stranger to the ins and outs of the female voice -- he is, after all, the man responsible for Amy Winehouse's sexy '60s sound and Lily Allen's exaggerated London accent. For his new album, Record Collection, Ronson teamed up with some big names (Q-Tip, Duran Duran, Ghostface Killah); but he also worked with another pair of young female up-and-comers. We asked him to dish on the new lovely ladies.





MNDR (aka Amanda Warner)

"I was like, 'Oh, you're MNDR, I love your stuff!' And she was like, 'Oh, cool.' I think she had no idea, she wouldn't know me from a hole in the wall. I told her I was working on a record and would she like to come to the studio? ... It just seemed like her voice and synth is sort of like chocolate and peanut butter: a marriage made in heaven."




ROSE ELINOR DOUGALL (formerly of the Pipettes)

"While we've been touring and playing shows, she's like basically playing more keys than I am. And on the record and stuff that she wrote, stuff that she sings, she just has a voice -- she doesn't sound like anybody else."








Mark Ronson & The Business Intl's Record Collection and Rose Elinor Dougall's Without Why are both out now
