The Listening Club - 5th January 2014

Happy new calendar period, everyone!

Hope you're doing fine, post-whatever it is you got up to. All is good here in The Dam, everything still in one piece despite the locals attempts to blow it all sky high... see, the few days before New Years is the only time it's legal to buy fireworks here, and NYE is the only day it's legal to let them off, so.... well you can guess what happens. Much boom. So explosive. Plenty dangerous. Yay fun.

So, with 2013 about to shatter into a million flying pieces, what better wave-goodbye could there have been last Sunday than the #festivevortex to soundtrack the destruction? 28 choice selections from the past year were offered up, and a fine, diverse, rather drunken time was had. Big thanks to all who chipped in a track or two!

Now, casting yer minds back, you may well remember @cdrose_writer was left holding the frisbee pre-vortex, and so here he is with the first pick of 2014...

"I came across this record completely by accident, when searching for cover versions of one my favourite songs, knew nothing about the artist, but as soon as I saw it, knew I had to have it.  There are fifteen songs, some originals, some covers, each one featuring a different female singer (hence the album title, I guess...) – some of the singers are known to me, others not: see how many you can spot!  Even though it’s stylistically compact, each song does differ quite a lot, so if you don’t like the one that’s on, hang around and something different will be up in a few minutes..."

Righty-ho. Direct download mp3 is here, and the Mixcloud stream (which may reveal the track titles, you have been warned) is here!

Search #listeningclub to see what's going on, and follow @listeningclub for the admin.

Hope to see you tonight at 8pm GMT!
