Song of the Day - February 16, 2006

The Gossip have done it again with their latest release Standing in the Way of Control. They are often labeled part of the soul dance punk funk movement. I love the funky bass intro to the track "Fire with Fire," Beth Ditto's soulful vocals, and the explosion of Brace Paine's guitar about a third of the way into the song. This is the perfect combination of soul, punk, and funk. There are definite shades of the riot grrrl sound, which just gives the song the edge it needs. They have toured with some great bands including: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Le Tigre, White Stripes, Sonic Youth, Sleater Kinney, Les Georges Leningrad, The Kills, and many others. Click here to listen.
