Standing In The Way Of Control

Beth Ditto of The GossipJust when I thought the disco-dance-punk sound had been played out(with the exception of Toronto's controller.controller), I find myself bowled over by The Gossip's "Standing In The Way Of Control", mostly because of the super, awesome, soulful vocals of lead singer Beth Ditto. Check the song out for yourself(if you haven't already) and download the mp3(courtesy of Kill Rock Stars). Their third album "Standing In The Way of Control" will be released through Kill Rock Stars on January 24th. (Yeah third album...I'm late on this 'band'-wagon, but better late than never.) They have a show at X-Space in Toronto on March 29th. Anyone want to confirm their live-show worthiness? [photo from http://../]

The San Francisco Bay Guardian profile The Gossip and their new album "Standing In The Way Of Control". The SFBG also interviews Beth Ditto and takes a glance at their discography.

Watch streaming video of The Gossip performing "Standing In The Way Of Control" from their September 16, 2005 show at Knitting Factory in New York City.

And of course The Gossip have a MySpace site.
