White Magic For Lovers
Drugstore's debut album bulldozered
its way straight into our all time top ten. Thankfully, their
follow up is right up there too. A little more accomplished,
a lot more confident, still as amusing as ever.
There has never been a female
vocal more poignant, more earthy, more alive than Isabel Monteiro's.
The longtime London domiciled Brazilian has something real special.
So special that Radiohead's frontman Thom Yorke jumped at the
chance to duet with Isabel on the album's big hit El President
about murdered Chilean leader, socialist Salvador Allende.
Sober, the band's latest hit
is as near to perfect pop as they have thus far dared to go.
With an outfit this precious you don't want them to be known
only by some fusty old clique. They deserve global domination,
now. Rollover Spice, we're checking into the Drugstore.
