On the brink of graduating college, I fell into something akin to obsession. Why? Lizzy Mercier Descloux. Her cover of “Jim on the Move” drew me in, but I found completion through Mambo Nassau, the perfect mix of post-punk, no wave, and worldbeat. The weather was so perfect today. I couldn’t help but listen to a little Lizzy.
ZZ Top have a new box set coming out in June, and this time they’re getting it right. The 10-CD ZZ Top: The Complete Studio Albums (1970-1990) will include, for the first time, the original mixes of the band’s early records. That’s great news for anyone who’s been stuck listening to the 80s remixes of these classic albums for all these years.
HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAINS!
