I’m apparently still crazy about the sights, sounds and reads of the 80s. I’m even about to dive right into Jeffrey Eugenides’ 80s-set The Marriage Plot, which was just named one of the NYTimes notable books of 2011!
I have a feeling that this current foray into all things 80s is somehow linked to the fact that the situation was also a bit recessionary back then, after a bout of financial opulence. But things were still oh so glam! So in celebration of that – staying fab in the age of austerity – here’s another song that’s currently on repeat! Charli XCX is a UK-based electro-pop darling and I love her synth-y melodies! Enjoy (plus remixes)!
Charli XCX – Nuclear Seasons
Also amazing and fresh off the mixers is musical royal-cum-jack of all trades-cum-style maven, Charlotte Gainsbourg’s new collaboration with Beck. Totally lush-sounding disco, I’m lovin’ this sound!
