I just got back to NYC from the latest Hepnova recording sessions in Arizona.Â We finished two covers of old songs that got the Hepnova treatment.Â The first is called “En la plaza de mi pueblo,” a flamenco-tinged song from the Spanish Civil War, and “MÃ¤rk Hur VÃ¥r Skugga,” an eighteenth-century Swedish song by Carl Michael Bellman about death and drinking.Â “En la plaza” features a guest guitar solo from American Flamenco pioneer JosÃ© Alarcon.
The working title of the new collection is Transistor Troubadour.Â We are planning on doing some more covers as well as some Hepnova originals and to continue to develop the unique electro-acoustic sound that has emerged in previous Hep tunes like “You’re For Me” and “Again Tonight.”
Lyrics after the jump:
NPR recently reported about Timberbrit, a contemporary opera that deals with the trials and tribulations of Britney Spears.
The cast and crew of Timberbrit recently shot a music video of “Worst Fantasy,” a song from the opera based on Britney’s “Toxic”
While we are on the subject of Britney, check out Hepnova’s “Hit Me Britney,” a recombinant cover of “…Baby One More Time,” and “Oops!…I Did It Again.”
Whoa!…What’s with the ellipsis abuse?
