15-06-2011 // EP: Lotte Kestner - Extra Covers EP





Lotte Kestner has been mentioned earlier this year with her fine album China Mountain B-sides, which was released back in 2009. Two weeks ago she released a new EP, called Extra Covers, which (you guessed it) contains a collection of covers, 6 in total. The only song i reckonized was Beyonce's Halo, which is a daring choice, but she gets away with it. Another fine track is Black Metallic, which apparantly was originally done by Catherine Wheel, an early 90s rockband. I'm almost drifting off there in 90s melancholie, which is also a little bit the issue with this EP. I like Lotte Kestner, she has a beautiful voice and is capable of singing little masterpieces, but apart from the 2 songs i've mentioned she doesn't really do that on this EP. For a total listening experience i prefer China Mountain B-sides, but Halo and Black Metallic deserve some airtime, cuz they're both a great showcase for Lotte Kestner's talent.
