Soundtracks: The Hundred in the Hands, "Dressed in Dresden"/"Undressed in Dresden"
I was all bummerville when I heard that local Brooklyn band the Boggs were no more; I was always way into their roots/dance/post-punk hybridity and general good-times vibe. Luckily, though, frontman Jason Friedman has started a new group, The Hundred in the Hands, with touring-Bogg Eleanore Everdell. And they've already got a single up for your downloading plaisir. It's "Undressed in Dresden"/"Dressed in Dresden" and both tracks are more straight-up dance-y affairs than the Boggs were, complete with disco polyrhythms, jagged guitars and really lovely, gorgeous vocals. "Dressed" is like, YES! I AM HAVING A GREAT DAY AND I'M GOING TO BOP DOWN THE SIDEWALK TO THIS INFECTIOUS BEAT AND SUPER FUZZY GUITAR! Whereas "Undressed" is more like, Oh, it's late night. I'm tired. Are you? Want to be tired together? To both we say: yes, thumbs up, hooray, hooray! Anyway, get to it and get downloading and enjoy getting either "Dressed" or "Undressed." Or both. At the same time? Naughty! (P.S. - Their website features their own zine, where they get their interesting friends from all over the place to say interesting things about being in those interesting places.)
