The Red Hot Organization pays tribute to an inimitable character on a double-length tribute, with help from Robyn, Sufjan Stevens, Hot Chip, Phosphorescent, Blood Orange, Scissor Sisters and more.
The only one i’ve listened to so far is Sufjan singing A LITTLE LOST, which is not good. totally void of exuberance and joy and anxiety: essentially lacking all the things that make the original so penetrating. The phrasing is also adjusted from a confessional conversation (hesitance followed by rush) to a very even delivery. A bit like a watered down AFRICA by Toto.
Summation: skip that track, but still curious about the rest!
Next week we are starting our annual Kitchn Cure! Are you ready? If you’ve never taken The Kitchn Cure, here’s the scoop: It’s a 4-week program of small daily tasks and encouragements to get your kitchen into shape for fall cooking. We’ll gently prompt you to clean your fridge, wipe out your spice shelves, and take charge of your cooking space. As I said last year, “My experience can be summed up this way: it made me finally do the things I’ve been wanting to do in my kitchen.” Are you ready to make your space healthier, fresher, and more organized? Join us! We’re all in it together!
