Hercules And Love Affair
Posted by Jakub
Last Saturday i was lucky enough to get into the first ever live band show of Hercules And Love Affair at Studio B in Brooklyn before they venture off to Europe to explode. They brought an amazing live disco band setup with an 8 piece band that included a brass section and 2 singers but they were missing Antony who is the singer in this track “Blind” and previously collaborated with Bjork on Volta. I hope you enjoy this change up, i’ll get into a few different genres while posting on Scott’s blog.
Hercules And Love Affair is due out in the US June 14th 2008 on Mute/DFA

Haha, my girlfriend loves this track :p and I’m slowly beginning to like it too. Antony’s got a pretty distinct voice.

Yeah, that’s an interesting style there Jakub…Have to admit I was a bit put off at first, but it’s definitely growing on me. Of course, that’s what you’re here for…otherwise we’d be listening to Belle & Sebastian and French Kicks all day and that gets tiresome after a while.

Antony’s voice is awesome…I first got into his work when I heard his cover of an old Leonard Cohen tune. Then I bought one his CDs, didn’t care for it much, but then I couldn’t get it out of my head and now I love it. he sounds his best yet on this track. This is good stuff…a nice funky change of pace. Thanks!

I got this on iTunes and had to delete thirty seconds after it started. I am one of those people who believes in listen to music more than once because sometimes your appreciation for a track is not instant. And many times you hear something new every time your listen to a track. But Anthony’s voice is like nails on a chalkboard for me. I just don’t get the appeal.
