Here’s a new track from the Australian pop singer Lanie Lane. It’s probably wrong to call her pop, because her sound is more a throwback to the 30’s, 40’s, or 50’s, and back then “pop” had a completely different meaning. I just don’t know what else to call it. It has elements of jazz and blues, but I guess she says it best when she describes it as “saucy” and “swampy”. It’s kind of like some of Tom Waits’ stuff, if Tom Waits had a much prettier voice. However you want to describe it, it’s a cool sound. Listen/download below.

Thought I would share my new track “Like Me Meaner” with you! It’s a saucy, swampy number, written + sung myself with old guitars, double bass and a whole lot of dirty percussion driving it along. It’s actually the first single cut from the album I’m recording, due out mid 2011!
