Found this via Stereogum.
Neneh Cherry & The Thing covering Suicide's "Dream Baby Dream." This is excellent. Knowing Suicide as the stripped down, keyboard-powered duo they were, hearing them interpreted by a jazz and vocal ensemble really does add some dimension to their work.
Their album, The Cherry Thing, will be out June 18th on Smalltown Supersound and the more I read about it, the more I want to hear it.
While Neneh Cherry is most closely associated with her hit "Buffalo Stance," she had an interesting period early in her career when she fronted Rip, Rig + Panic, one of the many groups born out of the The Pop Group's dissolution.
Oh, and apparently jazz great Don Cherry was her stepfather.
