New Scissor Sisters: “I Can’t Decide”

Thanks to Fluxblog, here is a live recording of a new track from New York’s reigning disco-diva throwback group, Scissor Sisters. This is described by singer Ana Matronic as “a hot little banjo ditty.”

I Can’t Decide” – Live at the Mercury Lounge, April 2006 – Scissor Sisters

Their new disc comes out this fall, and features none other than their sonic idol Elton John on the piano keys for one track (“I Don’t Feel Like Dancing”). I, personally, am NOT an Elton fan – but some of their stuff is undeniably good fun.

I must say that if I am gonna listen to the Scissor Sisters, I vastly prefer this killer remix of Filthy/Gorgeous, which will make anyone feel sassy. Just listen to that thumping bass drumbeat, and lyrics that make me blush a little bit (“wrap your fuzzy with a big red bow“?!)

  • Good stuff!

  • Have you listened to Elton’s early work by chance? Specifically, “Tumbleweed Connection,” “Madman Across the Water,” “Honky Chateau” and his self-titled. I noticed you dig a lot of rootsy, Americana, and soul music, and I really dig John’s early work for the way it filters those influences through piano pop.

    I’m not huge on his later stuff (even Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is a bit too glossy for me), but his early stuff was rawer and had a relative edge.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
