Listen: L.A. Soul Man Aloe Blacc Covers the Velvets on 'Femme Fatale'
Aloe Blacc's 'Femme Fatale'
Good lord this man is on a roll.
If you didn't already know about Stones Throw's many-talented soul singer/instrumentalist Aloe Blacc, that probably changed back in April when he was revealed as the artist behind the astonishing theme song for HBO's How To Make It in America.
(Don't worry, we'll include that video here as well -- it's that good.)
Well, the L.A.-based Blacc has just leaked the second single from his just-announced forthcoming album Good Things, a title which so far is looking like truth in advertising.
For this 7-inch release, Blacc covers the Velvet Underground classic "Femme Fatale," and he knocks it out of the park.
And here's the video for the song "I Need a Dollar," as featured on HBO.
