Crue-L Grand Orchestra
This came out a few days ago. Honored to be asked to be a part of this release! The A Side is a beautiful version of Barberella by Crue-L Grand Orchestra (Kenji Takimi and Tomoki Kanda). Kenji gave me a promo copy when I was in Japan back in June along with the Theo Parrish release on Crue-L which came out recently as well. Limited copies available outside of Japan, pick it up!
Kenji Takimi aka Crue L Grand Orchestra pays homage to Jane Fonda's finest moment with this multi layered cover version of the Barbarella theme song. The bewitching combination of a pumping space disco groove and glistening ethereal string arrangements make "Barbarella" one of this year's most brilliantly different A Sides. On the flip the Crue L classic "Candy Mountain In The Rainy Wood" gets two subtley different re rubs from Eddie C, who was recently credited with the official prefix "Canada's Finest".
