Beth Ditto - Open Heart Surgery



You should know by now that I am a HUGE Gossip fan. I think Beth Ditto is gorgeous and her vocals are bar none. She has released an EP without the other members of The Gossip and I don't really understand why. I actually never really understand that because when the lead singer releases a solo project isn't it really still just them. Brandon Flowers, Rob Thomas, Gwen Stefani....they are all still pretty much the same as their band incarnations. And for the most part, I think I am gonna have to agree with that sentiment with this as well. It's still Beth on vocals without Brace and Hannah. This track is a collaboration with Simian Mobile Disco and it does a bang up job of showcasing her talents and I want to have high hopes for the EP. I hope that I can pop it in and be blown away by her vocals.
