The Hundred in the Hands – Dressed in Dresden

by MV


AKA Jason and Eleanore, formerly of The Boggs. First thing to note: they no longer have a terribly, terribly off-putting name. Second thing to note: Eleanore’s icy-cool vocals are to the fore now, and that’s all for the good. I was introduced to this by a slowed-down, sexed-up Jacques Renault remix called Undressed in Dresden (free download at RCRDLBL). There’s a curious pleasure in hearing a seductive, drawn out remix and then only later uncovering the simple punchy power of the original. There’s a laboured metaphor in there that I can’t be bothered with right now. Safe to say the original is a bit like Emily Haines fooling around with the Strokes, and that’s enough of a metaphor in itself for one day, indie kids.
