As anyone who heard last year’s Cruel Intentions will know, the Beth Ditto/ Simian Mobile Disco combination works quite nicely. Beth’s voice is actually rather pretty when layered over some tasteful downbeat dance music, rather than shouting over some predictable old garage rock.
Anyhow, she’s about to release her debut self-titled solo EP, again with help from those SMD chaps. Here’s the first taster from it. Not going to change the world, but enjoyable enough.
Listen below to the full version of “I Wrote the Book” and a sampler of the rest of the EP.
