I don’t think I’ve ever posted a snippet on here. I usually find them to be a little on the pointless side – but in the case of the great Esthero, I felt I could go ahead and break my own rule. Where is Esthero? I know that’s a question many of her die hard fans ask themselves a few times a week. And the answer is; she’s in LA – rockin a super cute blonde pixie haircut and working on new tunes which are set to drop anytime from soon to never.
A couple of months ago, Esthero released a (hella) brief Youtube clip of her singing one her ‘new favorite’ tracks called “Francis”. The clip definitely generated some fast buzz and now she has uploaded another snippet – which is not as brief but nonetheless still a major tease.
I’m not sure what direction this new album will be taking … “Francis” sound like nothing from either Breath From Another or Wikked Lil Grrrls – which I think is a good thing because those albums dropped many moons ago – and there’s no way she should still be on that same wavelength. I do know however, that Esthero’s voice still moves me to the core and I’m immensely looking forward to whatever it is she will be releasing. Just call me a one of her loyal ‘Pink Pirates’ man!
