Two must-listens

1) Imogen Heap is streaming her new song "Speeding Cars" at gear4. One week only. It's the newly recorded bside to her next single. It's more tinkly than I expected, basically a ballad.

2)
Rush your asses over to Zappin' It To Ya to get the unreleased Alexis Strum song "Stay Until Summer" It's beautiful and a much better single choice than the meh "It Could Be You." Plus, it has one of the most glorious middle eights I have heard in a long, long time. Maybe if Alexis' CD never sees the light of day, Kylie can record this track as a moody comeback song. Thanks, Paul!

Hmmm, i would kvell in the knowledge of Kylie recording any AS track - was most disappointed when It Could Be You (fauxJewel) was touted as a single after the glorious Bad Haircut... the album itself is a mixed bag but generally quite good. Will have to try and get it to you...

kvell? Is that a hybrid of dwell and kvetch?
