I just got a new dance cover of Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’, and was surprised that’s it’s not that bad. It also made me think of the version ex-Sugababe Mutya Buena did for the big Radio 1 anniversary cd last year, which brought in some pop and gospel-lite flourishes. The somber folky tune stands up to varied interpretations, so I’m sharing what I got with you! What do YOU think!?

…with Hercules & Love Affair. After all the hype I’d been reading, I got to listen to they’re album on the flight to London and was not disappointed. I bought it when I returned to the states (cheaper in the US… and with 2 bonus tracks), and have fully fallen under their spell. Their melding of so many dance oriented genres blend together so seamlessly, and are emphasized by the atypical selection of vocalists. Expect this to be near the top on my end of 08 countdown!!

I try to space out talking about the same thing over and over again. However one of my new favorite musicians, Jay Brannan has posted a cute new video of his travels in UK to promote his excellent album, ‘goddamned’. Since I was just in London a few weeks ago, this video makes me all giddy. Plus he’s cute & funny. Maybe I’ll make him my imaginary boyfriend.

The newest (and probs last) from the ‘X’ album has finally been unleashed. Kylie looks fabulous as usual. It’s dizzying, stunning, and utterly plotless. It’s “The One”… love it love it love it love it.

I particularly dig the middle part with the 4 faces.
