(Editor’s note: I’ve been trying to find a way to create a revenue stream for Songs:Illinois without resorting to crass advertisements. I wanted to find a way to suport the artists and make a piece of the pie. I think I’ve found a way to do that. Many of the artists I write about have Snocap stores (official digital store for MySpace) and now through an agreement with Snocap I’ve embedded these stores within my posts and will earn a percentage of the song sales. So as always support independent music – buy the songs, see a show, get some merch. Let me know what you think about this in the comments.)
Lily Frost’s record Cine-Magique continued in the tradition of records by the likes of Holly Cole and Madeleine Peyroux. I wrote the record up here and was enchanted by her take on early jazz and cabaret. So when I heard that Lily Frost was releasing an EP of outtakes from her CineMagique session I said sign me up. Aporia Records has just released Flight Of Fancy
I Don’t Need Presents.You can buy Lily Frost songs below (support the artist, and me btw).
