Ep by Beth Ditto
Released: Mar 2011
Label: Deconstruction
You weren't expecting this one: Beth Ditto, the fiery frontwoman of Arkansas-via-Olympia dance punks Gossip, teams up with Simian Mobile Disco to record a heartfelt tribute to vintage club music. Think Madonna, Shannon, CeCe Peniston, Nu Shooz -- it's all about chugging house grooves, bright synth stabs and Ditto's incredible voice, judiciously layered and processed to ever so slightly larger-than-life effect. It's a masterpiece of pastiche, but all four songs are also thrilling examples of dance pop at its purest.
