Just like Beyonce, like Billie Holiday

I’m having one of those days when I’m so backed up on blogging anything at all that it’s hard to get started. But here’s the scoop-de-doop. I’ve been working on an interview with Girls and Boys for the Rage. I interviewed most of the band Tuesday night at Lake Fever Studios. They gave me a CD of three songs they’ve been working on and I’ve been playing it nonstop. I think I’m on the verge of becoming the sort of icky fan who gushes constantly about how fantastic they are.

Seriously, they’re fantastic. Two of the songs, “Love Unexplainable” and “My Biggest Fan” are absolute pure pop classics. The kind of tunes that a band should be able to retire on. I have repeated “Love Unexplainable” dozens of times since Tuesday. The recording is fresh and bright and the girls’ voices are amazing. It just makes me so happy.
