This week’s show mixed things up more than I usually do, and I think that was the influence of Cibelle’s new album “Las Venus Resort Palace Hotel,” which itself is a pretty heady mix of styles and influences. One of the things I think Cibelle is trying to do with this record is to break out of the “world music” box and be taken as the cyberpunk hero she really is, and I applaud her for that.
Here’s the video for “Man From Mars,” which is the first official single from the album:
I didn’t play that this week; instead I played two of the other great tracks, her cover of Kermit the Frog’s “It’s Not Easy Being Green,” and “Frankenstein.”
I ended the show with three tracks featuring the Australian singer Sia, including her genius video for “Clap Your Hands,” the first official single from her album, “We Are Born.”
The entire setlist is here as a Google Spreadsheet.
