LE SORELLE MARINETTIMay 29, 2008
From J-pop, to Mexican psychedelia to Arabian punk and garage, there is so much music that is so good mostly because it is sung in another language. For instance, all the music they play at my favorite sushi bar is always the same, it’s a Japanese mix that includes a cover of Blondie’s “Maria.” I like the song as it is, but when sung in Japanese, it turns into something else completely, something relevant even. ANYWAY, imagine my surprise to get an email from Le Sorelle MArinetti, an Italian group of drag queens that sing cabaret-style three part harmonies, not unlike the Andrews Sisters. AND they do the old time-y outfits too. In Italian. The songs are killer, buy them on itunes.
