DOWNLOAD: Little Boots Vs. Yes Giantess

2009_09_little_boots.jpg Buzz has been heavy around 25 year old songstress Victoria Hesketh a.k.a. Little Boots, and while we've bemoaned the fact that her album has yet to be released Stateside, we're extremely excited that she's playing The Empty Bottle this Thursday. We've said she writes tunes that are electro-pop gems set to steam up clubs and compel rollerskate divas to rub up all over skinny tied boys, and that enough would get us into the club to see her.

Tour mates Yes Giantess have given Little Boots' "Earthquake" the remix treatment, and after hearing their take on the tune we admit we're now pretty excited to see what they have to bring to the stage too. It's a simple treatment but it takes a pretty straightforward slice of glittering cotton candy and turns it onto it's side with deliriously wobbly grace.

Give it a listen, tell us what you think, and we'll see you at the show.
