VANESSA DAOU kicks off 2012 with a brand new release, ONCE IN A WHILE: THE REMIXES EP, Her third remix single culled from her 6th studio album JOE SENT ME, the romantic love letter has been cleverly reconstructed into a monumental package of mixes that sound right at home in cozy underground spots, mega-parties or in your living room including: the feverish original, big room bangers from soulful minimal-tech craftsman ROBERTO RODRIGUEZ (whose euphoric 10-minute plus workout rivals Vanessa’s definitive club anthem “Surrender Yourself”) and rising, LA-based, gritty progressive electro-house newcomer DJ BANDER, a chugging, dubbed-out afterhours expansion courtesy of PHURRY FREAKS/MISO RECORDS main man CHARLES WEBSTER, and a silky nocturnal groove from TERRY LEE BROWN JR’S downbeat alter ego, NOR ELLE, that pulses at just the right sensual pace for Daou’s passionate poetry.

Betty Black: “Bad Weather” Single

BETTY BLACK
BAD WEATHER – SINGLE
FRAU PINK PRODUCTIONS / KID RECORDINGS 
KIDDEP 10013
DIGITAL RELEASE DATE:  
FEBRUARY 14, 2012

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the southern gothic chanteuse BETTY BLACK (aka singer/songwriter SYLVIA GORDON) returns with “BAD WEATHER”, a joyously twisted tale of love, carnal desire and obsession that captures the intense yearning of star-crossed lovers destined to crash and burn. Gordon creates an immersive paean to the Sixties pop and underground cult classics like RUSS MEYERS’ psychosexual super vixens, ENNIO MORRICONE’S spaghetti westerns and NANCY SINATRA’S provocative steam heat, as well as, DAVID LYNCH’S Blue Velvet and Lost Highway while infusing the retro-modern sounds of contemporaries like LYKKE LI and THE RAVEONETTES. This is the sound of chain gang heartbreak pop at its most obsessive, lustful and thrilling.

For the B-side, Black slows things down on “NEW MEXICAN SUNSET” and the bonus cut “BAD WEATHER (BLACK & CULLERS ALT VERSION)” – an eerie, stripped down drone owing much to BAUHAUS, SUICIDE and SISTERS OF MERCY.

TRACKLISTING:
1. Bad Weather
2. New Mexican Sunset 
3. Bad Weather (Black & Cullers Alt Version)* Bonus Track
