Song of the Day - March 20, 2006

The UK's The Duke Spirit finally saw the US release of Cuts Across The Land and it is worth the wait. Lead vocalist Liela Moss has been compared to Patti Smith and Nico and their influence is apparent throughout the album. I especially liked the mounting energy of "Love Is An Unfamiliar Name," the Gang of Four influenced guitars intermingled with psychedelic influences on "Win Your Love," and the sinister intro to "You Were Born Inside My Heart." However, the best track is the Velvet Underground influenced "Darling, You're Mean," and the sinister vocal chorus by Liela Moss, which I find strangely attractive. Click here to listen.
