Kristin Kontrol shares new song, DJing Cindy Wilson show at BK Bazaar, tells us her Top 10 of 2016
Kritsin Kontrol has just shared a new single, "Baby Are You In?," which she recorded during the sessions for the Dum Dum Girls leader's solo debut, XCommunicate. Says Kristin, "I really regret not including it on the album. It was super fun to make - Kurt Feldman and I let loose on the production, trying to pin down that nebulous aggression from Evil Heat-era Primal Scream, but let it cork off the party at the end. It’s my favorite to perform live; I really feel the lyrics...’I wake up with the sun on my face, I call this moment "morning grace.' I wanna kiss the light cuz it's one day later, the night's lost its tenure, I slept off my failure." You can stream that and all of XCommunicate below.
We've been doing a lot of artist Top 10 lists and Kristin was nice enough to share her LP list with us, which includes records from Blood Orange, Bowie, Bon Iver, Leonard Cohen and more. Check out her full Top 10 LPs of 2016 list below.
Kristin will also be DJing at Brooklyn Bazaar on Wednesday, December 7, an opening set for the B-52's Cindy Wilson. Tickets are available. Cindy released a new EP, titled Sunrise, earlier this year which, in addition to three originals, features covers of songs by Broadcast and Junior Senior. You can stream it below.
