“I'M A HARD-LIVING, YOUNG QUEEN WITH A BIG HEART AND A LOT TO SAY.”
I'm listening. Alexis Penney is part of Party Effects, which Marke B. wrote about recently. This solo track is like if a badass version of Erasure and Crystal Waters' “Gypsy Woman” had a love-hate child. But way better. "Lonely Sea" makes me wish Frankfurt was next door to Oakland, so I could program a club night with performances by Alexis and Chelonis R. Jones. For now, I'll just listen to this song, and its classic throwaway (as in throw your heart away) lines about good pillows and last names – at least a few times a day.
