I favor song titles that make you have to listen. “Moan All Night” for example. Either a sexy all night sex song, or a doom-ridden introspective flu nightmare. It’s somewhere in between, as it turns out. Tom Waits meets a renegade troupe of gypsies on the outskirts of reality, where they drink absinthe and slowly suck each others’ fingers. I’m pretty sure.
Kelli Scarr – “Pure Gold” mp3
You ready for some beautiful singing? This recording by singer-songwriter and sometime Moby touring band member Kelli Scarr is a shimmering masterwork, worthy of its title. It starts out deceptively simple, with a dry, John Lennon-esque piano bed setting the stage for a blissful gospel-pop chord progression, and a vocal that melts rocks. Kelli’s bio is a fun read, and today again I have to sing the praises of the Interwebs for allowing me to discover such a fine talent with my morning coffee. This track is special. Hope you enjoy.
