London noise/electronic/punk trio Little Death Machine (who I interviewed earlier this year on the blog) deliver this unlikely cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Lay Lady Lay’. It’s got a sensual Moby-meets-Massive-Attack vibe – a total reinvention of the original that I’d love to see picked up in some slick car ad.
Mr. Twin Sister were one of the first bands I featured when I started this Tracks of the Week section five centuries ago (it’s actually only been two years – can you believe that?). Clearly the Long Island experimental pop group are still going strong, as evident by this new funky jam - lead singer Andrea laying some smoky Bjork-ish vocals over a hypnotic patchwork of Yes-inspired groovy guitars.
This new feelgood indie tune is the work of Hideout, the project of Cults-guitarist Gabe Rodriguez, which may mean something to someone. It’s a warm and cheery hangover song about getting a text from that chick you’ve been into and not being quite able to quite believe it.
If out-of-tune falsettos become the next trend in music, I'm emigrating Earth.
