I remember having a recording of "Blue Lips" that wasn't the version that's on Far. Its much more simple and I think just the piano. Does anyone know what this was on or maybe it was a live recording circulating a lot? This is like 5 years ago I think. Possibly further back.
There is an accompanying article (click on "Read More"), that gives a little more general detail about the set. I haven't listened to it yet, so I can't give you a set list - I imagine it's mostly stuff from What We Saw From the Cheap Seats.
ETA: You'll have to go to the NPR page to see the video as well, b/c apparently LJ doesn't like NPR's embed code. :-|
"I'm so excited to share another track off my new record with you all! We stomped and clapped our asses off for this one- i even wore Mike's big boots over my sneakers to stomp louder..... Big big cheers, regi"
Aaaand it's AWESOME. It's one of her songs that really benefits from extra percussion, so I'm glad it got the studio treatment. That'll probably be the last we hear from her before the album drops THIS MONTH on the 29th (unsubtle reminder). But congrats, Spektorites, we have successfully waited another three years without tearing our hair out!!!
Regina just posted a new song on her website from her forthcoming album, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats (out sometime in May), and it's All The Rowboats!!!! Yes!!! (I have a live version where she says during the beatboxing part "I hear so much more stuff in my head right now than you guys hear," and now we get to hear it!!!!)
Not sure if it's the first single or just a random selection. What do you guys think?
