Yet another cool band from Brooklyn, NY. Hercules And Love Affair. The first single from their self-titled album, which is out in North America on June 24 (but has been out in the UK for months – go figure) is called Blind, and like four other tracks on the collective’s debut album, it features Antony Hegarty of Antony And The Johnsons on vocals. You may recognize the androgynous vocalist from his triumph of the Mercury Prize in 2005 for the album I Am A Bird Now. The song Blind is so stunning – you really need to listen to it on the band’s MySpace page. I can’t wait to hear more gems from these guys once the album’s out!
Hercules And Love Affair is the brain child of NYC-based DJ Andy Butler and features guests like Nomi, Kim Ann Foxman and of course, Antony Hegarty. The album is part of the DFA Records archives and was produced by DFA honcho Tim Goldsworthy himself. You may recall that he’s also produced gorgeous albums for The Rapture and Cut Copy as well.
