ok, been up since 3am working on ride stuff, took a break and decided to troll you tube a bit.
guess what i found? the brand-spankin-new siouxsie video for the first single off her new record. the tune is called ‘into a swan’ and it’s flipping incredible. more aggressive than siouxsie’s been for a fair bit. more organic too. the drums are smokin’ hot (thank you budgie). and could she look anymore incredible? wow – she’s 50!
what a way to start a day!
check it out:
in other music news, i picked up the new mark ronson yesterday – but haven’t listened yet as i also got this incredible new record from the iconic mavis staples called ‘we’ll never turn back’. that has completely captivated me.
entertainment weekly says: “Staples’ voice outshines all: rich, weathered, and full of fire, sometimes resolving in a cracked tone or a dark, knowing chuckle, her eyes still on the prize.”
and the guardien says: “Staples is magnificent.”
and indeed she is.
in other exciting news – scott and i are seeing a late showing of harry potter 5 tonight… late cause of course, i’m in rehearsals all day and into the evenin. can’t wait for that either.
