Masha Qrella: Boys Don't Cry / Fishing Buddies
After recording some killer cover versions of Bryan Ferry or Frederick Loewe, Masha now sings The Cure's second hit 'Boys Don't Cry'. After more than 30 years of heavy Indie-Disco rotation, you might be sick of that song, but Mashas version is just too clever: First she adds a rhythmic Kelis-citation ('Trick Me'). This also brings (even more) gender twist here, as it may also be seen as a comment on Robert Smiths elaborated moaning. Later she simply skips that momentum, that wants to make you sing along – by freezing the song. On the flip, the guitar work of James McNew (Yo La Tengo, Dump) guitar adds some gentle funk to Masha's recent single 'Fishing Buddies'. There is a brandnew video for Boy's Don_t Cry, too!
