Culling the Herd: Amanda Blank

Amanda Blank, "Hey DJ" - 5 stars.  Dig it.

Another free download, either from an itunes collection or Starbucks.

I'm generally not into this kind of stuff - as Lou Reed wrote in the liner notes to "New York," "best to stick with guitar guitar bass drums drums drums" - but this song just kicks my ass.  Fabulous hook, big, sexy voice, propulsive electronic bass line that goes right to my hips.  Just a terrific dance record, also a great running song, to be played as loud as possible.
