Kim Ann Foxman – 16th most stylish woman in NYC

I’m obsessed with her. Her voice, her mad steez, her face, her hair, her flyest of musical friends, and her deejaying. Listening to her house mixes is like taking a trip to NYC for a night. The piano solos, soaring diva vocals, Show-Me-Lovey “doot-doo-doo-doo-doot” riffs and synthesized clap of New York house are all present but never seem dated in this woman’s hands. Her beats are always addictive and smart – too smart, artsy and a little too rough to be gay disco pabulum. And to top it all off, there’s the bonus of hearing her sublime voice in many of the tracks. GOD, I LOVE HER.

The last time we saw her, she was the Love Affair portion of Hercules and Love Affair. Definitely among the top ten shows of my life. O, how the people danced! We were drenched in sweat that summer’s eve as we poured out of the Hawthorne Theater like liquid, slithering out of the exoskeletons of our former selves. We didn’t even have a single beer; we got to the show right on time and commenced dancing the moment Hercules dropped the beat and Kim Ann sang to us, “I can’t wait no more.”

Her “Return It” EP was my favorite of the winter. She surely dropped that & the new Miracles Club single on the crowd last month at Holocene…oui?? Who went? I was in Italy and Katzendame had a fainting spell. Please help me understand what went on that night (5/10/13). SF friends can see her next Saturday, 6/29/13 at Monarch! Then she’s off to Europe, so don’t sleep. RETURN IT!

Fixes:
Skyline Mix
Live mix @ Honeysoundsystem SF (This mix is a few years old but surely an excellent preview of what’s to come next week at Monarch.)

Rome clubbing diary to come.
