Burn Antares – Crystal Love

If you ever meet your idol in a dream, very few would claim that they received anything productive from that to take away. However, if you are the front-woman of Burn Antares, Grace Farriss, maybe you are just fantastic at networking:
“I met Janis Joplin in a dream and she gave me the song as a present. I took it to the boys and we worked on it till it was smoking hot. The day before we went in to record, we rewrote the melody so Janis’ estate couldn’t sue us.”

Listening to the track, it is as if I’ve dug up an old record from a time capsule buried in the 60s. During a time in which more and more music is artificial sounding, it can be refreshing to hear a group that tries to relive a music period that is often looked back on so fondly even now.
