Let’s say we start this week off right. And by right, I mean S&M, drag queens, booze, nudity and ultra violence.
First, we have “Nancy From Now On,” the second single by one-time Fleet Foxes member, J Tillman, and his new outfit Father John Misty. And normally, I love nothing more than to slag indie-folk bands for their quaint aesthetics, but when a folkie delivers a knockout opening line like this one: “Poor me another drink /And punch me in the face /You can call me Nancy,” I take notice.
Now, that we’re in the right frame of mind, how about some adult situations featuring a drag queen? Oh, there’s a song here, too, and it’s vintage, epic J Spaceman. “Hey Jane,” the first single from Spiritualized’s forthcoming album, Sweet Heart Sweet Light, stretches out over nine minutes — First with a boozy, bluesy stomp, then a more sedate reprise, and finally with a grand, gospel-infused take on that same melody set to the scene of an intense beat-down in a sketchy hotel room.
