thecocknbullkid’s Kiss Kiss Kill remixed by Esser

thecocknbullkid’s debut release, the Querelle EP, launches across the pond today, having come out in the UK last week.   To try and give a little oomph to this bid to conquer the States, the record label has made available an Esser remix of Kiss Kiss Kill, as well as a mixtape by thecocknbullkid, aka Anita Blay, downloadable here.  It’s all we’ll have for a while, as Anita is currently writing a full-length album with Gonzales (of Feist, Peaches and Jamie Lidell fame), set to be released in early 2010!
Long tipped as a star in the making, Anita’s rise to the top is going slower than many of us bloggers originally foresaw.  Perhaps it’s her fiercely alternative stylings, diluting vintage pop with an understated, lo-fi delivery style and edgy samples; or perhaps it’s the fickle nature of fame.  What’s certain is she has a big fanbase – go to see her in London, and there WILL be a sizeable crowd – and oodles of talent, reflected in wry, canny lyrics.  On My Own remains one of my favourite tracks to hear, and smile along to, live.

Esser’s not bad either, and this remix is one well worth getting your paws around.
