Cigarettes After Sex – Neon Moon

As a collector of moon songs I felt this new cover of Cigarettes After Sex belonged on my Spotify playlist. This beautiful song is originally a country song by Brooks & Dunn.

Amy

♫ Else Born – This Time/Remember

Turid Alida Solberg from Norway’s Philco Fiction is starting her own solo career as Else Born. This Time/Remember is her debut song, exactly how Scandinavian electro should be.
