Song of the Day - March 2, 2006

The Rogers Sister released their album Three Fingers in 2004, but released two singles in 2005 from the same album with a slight linguistic twist. The tracks were recorded in French and Japanese. I preferred the French version of "Fantasies Are Nice." to the English version. The track starts with a squealing saxophone before Jennifer and Laura, the Rogers Sisters, exchange a few French syllables. Meanwhile, there is a somewhat primitive pounding beat, and clanging guitars swirling around the mix which eventually builds to a climax. There are shades of the B-52's in their sound and echoes of the 80's. If you are looking for something with a new wave edge to it, The Roger Sisters are your band. Click here to listen.
