    Gender swap (Part 2 of 2)

    Space Oddity
    and I'm floating in a most peculiar way.
    My favourite part of both versions is crescendo of music and the segue into the first chorus. Both are very similar, only Natalie’s is live and so more acoustic and stripped down (much like Belle and Sebastian’s live version). Also, Natalie’s accented vocals give a lovely mysterious and interesting tinge to the lyrics.

    Come On Eileen*
    we are far too young and clever.
    Aw man, this has to be one of the funnest covers ever. FOUR MINUTES OF FANTASTIC FUN. Awesome. I mean, I love cheeky Irishness of the original, but the ska-ness and the big band-y-ness of this cover is just… YEAH. Seriously, if I didn’t think it’d piss off people who read this, this whole bit would be written ENTIRELY IN CAPS.

    Starman
    he’d like to come and meet us, but he thinks he’d blow our minds.

    OK, so I clicked that "Recommendations" link up there and first on my list was Neva. Never heard of this band before, but eh, whatever. Do a search on soulseek and what's the worst that could happen? I'd hate it and delete it.

    I absolutely CANNOT find an album of theirs for sale online -- and this is a BAD THING because after just three songs that I found, I want it. Some album. ANY album. I don't care if I have to get it sent from Lithuania or wherever it is that they're from, I want it! As far as information on them goes, this page at Dead-Babies.de was the best that I could do.

    As far as how I would describe their sound, the best I can do is: think of the first Tragic Black album, and make it GOOD. Seriously, it is possible. If you don't have the first Tragic Black CD (Articulate Lacerations), then I feel sorry for you -- but if you want a copy (it's now out of print), just message me.

    So, this is officially a shout-out to EVERYBODY who may have a copy of the Neva CD or info on where I can find it. …
