Why Does The Wind?

Buzzin' Fly
It's one of those inevitable things that Tracey Thorn should pitch up at Buzzin' Fly. More accurately at Fly's sister label Strange Feeling, but for the purposes of this single the more dance focused older sibling gets the nod. 'Why Does The Wind?' sees Thorn on classic form, the precisely delivered lines and unhurried melodies instantly familiar. Ewan Pearson's original has all the appropriate delicacy required but there are more choices, of course. Metro Area's Morgan Geist cooks up a bubbling, retro electro brew, Michel Cleis deploys all the percussion he can muster and André Lodemann opts for a lilting, spacey groove that's a perfect foil for the vocals.
