Hercules and his multiple Love Affairs

Aerea Negrot by Rafael Scovino

I have to say the new Hercules & Love Affair album Blue Songs was my one and only mood stabilizer over the sentimental Christmas days and I drove my family insane with my disco sessions upstairs. But this versatile and joyful mix of perfect songs is just too good not to be played on repeat for hours.

For his second album greedy Hercules got involved with a whole bunch of love affairs. Amongst them not only Bloc Party’s Kele but also Berlin-based artist Aerea Negrot. She opens the record with the awesome song Painted Eyes which is one of the highlights of the record. But talking of highlights – there is actually not one song that I would not describe as a highlight – and when can you ever say that about an album?

Blue Songs will be released in the end of January. A concert at Berghain will follow on March 3rd 2011. After the jump you can have a listen to the song My House with guest vocalist Shaun Wright.
