Eleni Mandell - "Artificial Fire" (MP3)

by PopMatters Staff

12 February 2009

 

Michael Keefe named Eleni Mandell’s Miracle of Five the third best singer-songwriter album of 2007, calling it “her subtlest and best work yet… torch-singing crosses with sad ‘50s pop and, yes, a bit of vintage country balladry… her songwriting is too good to ignore.” Mandell follows up that superb effort with Artificial Fire, releasing next week on Zedtone. Here’s the title song as well as her upcoming tour schedule. As Keefe said back in 2007, “Mandell might not be begging you to listen to her music, but I am.”

Double Take: 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' (1969)

// Short Ends and Leader

"The two Steves at Double Take are often mistaken for Paul Newman and Robert Redford; so it's appropriate that they shoot it out over Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
