chanteuse and chanteusey.
here's the deal: nick cave is sick of being nick cave -he just can't deal with all the late nights, substance abuse, and little neo goth groupies pestering him all the time. so, what does nick cave do? that's right: he goes to helsinki to get a sex change.
and now nick cave goes by the name...gemma ray.
RIYL: cave, leonard cohen, anna calvi, ed wood, et al.
MR. ESQ. SEZ: MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW!!!
PLAY THESE TRACKS: ANY/ALL/PUT ON RANDOM/THAT GOOD.
(note: tracks 13&14 are an exception...)
*1. slowly coming in, shimmers, chuggy strum along.
2. sweet, cloying 60's countryish pop.
*3. I know it's you nick! (you little tenderloin surprise.)
*4. theremin, cool and haunty. like something for a lynch flick.
*5. BEST TRACK: awwww (mew)
6. ooooo...gothy. (as done by sade)
*7. real slow, silent begin. gets reverby guitary.
*8. BEST TRACK II: theremin, cool and haunty. like something from an ed wood flick. (mew. I know it's you...nick cave.)
9. neo-oriental sound. let us lounge! (and order mimosas!)
10. kinda reminds me of 'time after time' by cyndi lauper.
*11. i imagine kittens singing this as they steal catnip.
*12. synth start, kinda clockwork orangey. sounds like something they'd play at a kids doctor...while they waited to get ludavico'd .
the exceptions: 13&14 are bonus tracks. nick, i mean, gemma, did a 7' w/ the maal brothers. cover of sparks songs. I decided not to factor these tracks regarding overall meows.
13. kinda cool.
14. kinda sucks.
