Alice Russell Under the Munka Moon II
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Tru Thoughts
For this installment of vocalist Alice Russell's ongoing collection of collaborations, remixes, and other bits, the pomo-jazz Batgirl employs every weapon in her arsenal: From Bugz in the Attic's bloop-funk on dancefloor killer "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" to the White Stripes (whose "Seven Nation Army" gets devastated, Etta James-style) to the dance-jazz, tailor-made remix of her own "Mirror Mirror on the Wolf." But maybe Russell‘s boldest, most incendiary moment is the "one-take" straight jazz reading "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know," on which the queen bee stretches her lungs and stirs the tears right into your Scotch.
