Well, one of the artists I wanted to see there was Ida Maria. Went to one of the clubs she was supposed to be playing at, at the prescribed time, and some dude started playing. Not Ida. Found out later that she was delayed, perhaps because of visa issues in NY.
So I was happy to stumble across this live-in-the-studio recording of her, and hear that she sounds pretty darn good. Might want to wash her hair next time, though. let's just say that it was early, and that she washed it later and it was all silky smooth and wraarrrrr. This hair was a little more eeeeah, if you know what I mean. Ah, well, good stuff anyway. Enjoy "better when you're naked" and Stella":
