I’ve mentioned the new Billie The Vision & the Dancers record on a couple of separate occasions but as of yet I haven’t linked to any song from it. The band has just posted the entire album online as a free download and I’ll take that as my queue to write a little about the record.
First off it doesn’t break any new ground. But seeing as how the last two records were pop wonders (especially The World According To Pablo) they didn’t have to. Like Pablo this new record also has a recurring character and this time it’s Lily. I haven’t absorbed the whole record but the individual songs are spellbinding. In fact “Someday, Somehow” has already become a singalong anthem at their live shows. And of course Lily (below) is a favorite of mine and features such lively call and response it’s hard not to shout out the chorus.
