Pop / Swing // By Hugh / 6 December, 2008
It seems that we’re at the part of the cycle where I post a lot! Hurray! At the same time, this one has been in my inbox since June and I’m just now getting around to it. Aww, boo! But as lazy procrastinators always say, better late than never. While I’m on the subject of better late than never, I would like to bring your attention to the swish new logo that Ant made for the site; you can read all about that intrepid journey if you are so inclined.
Onto the tunes! I’ve written about Lily Frost before, nearly two years ago. For those of you who are unaware, she’s an undeniably saucy Canadian singer. With a voice that could soften the hardest heart, she has released an album of Billie Holiday cover songs entitled Lily Swings. Because I am a fan of idiotic puns, I will go further and say that she hits, at the very least, a double. As you might imagine from the title, the music is rather… swing-y! Besides that, she brings her pop sensibilities to classic songs, and the result is more than satisfactory!
