Music is an important element to Friends & Neighbors, with most of the music curated by Jill Bradshaw (one of the store's owners). However, we also like to spread the love and we have invited some of our friends to throw in a few of their favorite songs to contribute to the store's soundtrack. Our first installation was from Chris Bear of Grizzly Bear who provided some downtempo tunes alongside party jams.
Our next musical contributor is the lovely and amazing Nancy Whang. She is best known as one third of the LCD Soundsystem dynamic trio, while adding vocal stylings to many other acts such as The Juan Maclean, Holy Ghost!, Shit Robot, Classixx, and Soulwax. She also throws down some skills as a DJ extraordinaire. Let's face it, she's a bad ass.
Take a look at some of the tracks she picked out:
ESG - Moody (Spaced Out)
Grace Jones - La Vie En Rose
YACHT - La Goudron (YACHT remix)
Savages - She Will
Midnight Magic - Beam Me Up (Jacques Renault Remix)
The Mary Jane Girls - In My House
Kate Bush - Cloudbusting
Blondie - Sunday Girl (French Version)
The Art Ensemble of Chicago - Theme de Yo-Yo
**you'll have to come in to hear the rest!!!**
Next time you're at F&N you may be listening to some of the music she has provided. If you are, you'll see a little sign like this:
And because we love her so much, here is a montage of favorite pics of this fine looking lady....
