I'm really intrigued by John Grant's Pale Green Ghosts. It's his second solo album and was recorded in Iceland where he now lives, but he used to be in a band called The Czars based in Denver. He reminds me of a butch Rufus Wainwright but he likes european electronica stuff too. The title track to Pale Green Ghosts is good example. I've tried to search but not finding any discussion of him on here. Any fans?
Local radio is playing the single GMF steadily and I really like the song. The FCC version uses "greatest living creature" and it works well.* Here's the video:
bonus video - this is off his first solo album Queen of Denmark done with Midlake. I've heard this song before but just made the connection.
edit: The Guardian has a good interview!
*editagain: Just realized the "radio version" cuts an entire verse too. motherfuckers.
