Last night The Music Slut was fortunate enough to catch the first ever live performance from Brooklyn's disco revivalists, Hercules & Love Affair. Shockingly, the collective managed to surpass our atmospheric expectations. For nearly an hour, DFA's latest signees
stunned the sold out crowd with arresting vocals by Nomi
& a slew of different players tackling keyboards, saxophones, drums and a wide range of electronics. Simply genius! Hercules & Love Affair will bring their voodoo overseas later this month and throughout the summer for myriad festival gigs. To view those dates and to learn more about the band, visit their MySpace page immediately.
