Nomi Ruiz, vocalist on the first Hercules & Love Affair album, released a new single with her band Jessica 6 today. I love Nomi’s voice, which is perfect for this pop/house song with a little bit of dance melancholy on top. Almost a year ago, I wrote about the first J6 single, Fun Girl – which has a fun video.
Jessica 6’s album, See The Light, will be out this May.
Another single got the remix treatment today – though streaming only – My House by Hercules & The Love Affair. This one is by Andy Butler’s former lover, Derrick Carter. He had previously remixed one of my favourite tracks from the first H&LA album, You Belong with Nomi on lead vocals. So, we heard this pairing before, but I can’t resist Derrick Carter’s bouncy Chicago beats. He turned My House up for a bigger dance floor.
