let's groove tonight
rio en medio
Danielle Stech-Homsy -- aka Rio En Medio -- has worked with such luminaries (relatively speaking) as Devendra Banhart, CocoRosie, and Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor. When I talked about her last record over a year ago, I'm pretty sure I used words like "otherworldly" and "ghostly." So her next logical step would obviously be a 7" featuring covers of two iconic disco anthems from the late '70s/early '80s. She does right by this one, though, turning Earth Wind & Fire's ubiquitous white people wedding jam into an oddly enjoyable acapella disco-folk novelty:
