I didn't get to see her at Pitchfork because I was getting bottled water, but I heard her performance from there and it was absolutely phenomenal. I didn't think her music would translate well at all live, and it was great.

Big crowd at Easy Street Records tonight for her in-store. I was right up front!

They were selling the new Body Talk two days early, which was awesome. I got a wristband that would allow me a spot in the line for a signing, but wouldn't mean I'd get one, as she was limited in her time.

By the time she went on, the line wound through most of the store, but I was fine not getting an autograph. I was going to tell her that I'd sung With Every Heartbeat at karaoke last night. I'm sure she would have been so impressed.

Anyway, she's great. It was just her, a keyboard player, and a guy doing light drumming on an electronic kit. Most of the songs were stripped-down versions, and the songs held up very well in that format. Also, her voice is really great.

She played for maybe 25 minutes ... I think this was more or less the setlist:

Hang With Me
Dancehall Queen
Be Mine
With Every Heartbeat
Dancing On My Own
Show Me Love

Photobucket is being an asshole right now, so I can't share my pictures, but will try tomorrow.

Body Talk is just fantastic. Of course, it's just everything that was on pts 1 and 2, and then the new songs, but altogether it makes for an amazingly strong album.

The only track I don't care for is We Dance to the Beat, which I find monotonous without nearly as much fun as the other tracks.

Here are a few pics (under the cut because they're kind of big):

I know nothing about her, but really enjoyed her performances on SNL this week. Album/s is/are apparently good, yes?

YES. If you liked those songs, you need to pick up Body Talk. (The full version, not one of the EPs.)

Call Your Girlfriend was bangin'. Amazeballs. Etc.

This is probably extremely old news, but I wanted to say that I think this cover is pretty awesome:

Her dance moves, clothes, and hair made me embarrassed for her on SNL, but the music was good.

I like that she goes a little ways down the weird and off-putting path, rather than looking like yet another cookie-cutter pop star with a petite body and blonde hair.

Me, too. All the things the tourist didn't like were exactly what I did like. I actually dismissed the music (despite the raves) until I saw her. Then I got it.

To each their own. She looked stuck in 1992.
