Hercules & Love Affair is TRAN-scending

30 Nov


Up until today I’ve never heard of this group but I just so happen to come across the nu-disco group put together by New York based DJ Andy Butler and did a lil research. Now,I happen to be a fan of all genres just so long as it’s good! So, before I even decided to see what “might” be some dope, new, interesting, music the first thing that even brought me into the direction of wanting to take a listen to this group was Nomi Ruiz. Nomi’s look at first sight is pretty-attractive and captivating [no homo]. Just take a look at that top picture she’s the one, or shall I say he’s the one on the far left, yes HE! Nomi happens to be one of the vocalist of the group and is also transgendered and for the sake of respect and equality I’ll refer to Nomi as “she”. I found this to be quite intriguing cause you don’t see a group with a transgendered vocalist everyday, just goes to show how much the world is evolving and I suppose becoming more excepting and open-minded. Since music is a great evolution in itself I guess maybe I shouldn’t be as surprised but you can see how one could be surprised cause it’s totally unexpected which is why this group works.

I decided to take a listen to their music after my little discovery within the group cause after all Hercules & Love Affair sold me off of Nomi alone and even more so caught my interest off lesbian band mate Kim Ann Fox and as loving as I may be to all genres of music disco is one of those genres I can only get with if the vibe is right so with that said Hercules and love Affair dropped a new track titled “My House” since their album of the same name released in 2008. The new track features new comer Shaun Wright and will be on their upcoming sophomore album Blue Songs, due out January 31, 2011. If You’re interested in hearing it you can take a listen to the bass-pumping track via the NME Daily Download blog. It’ll be worth the listen wether you dig it or not.
