Aloe Blacc, "Femme Fatale" 7-inch

In listening to Nico sing Velvet Underground's “Femme Fatale” I always felt as though Nico was singing of herself. Her regal Norwegian vocals were far more fatalistic than any other woman I imagine she's ever encountered, except those chance passes of mirrors tall enough to capture her frame.

For Aloe Blacc's second single off Good Things, which is already building immense hype with “I Need A Dollar,” he is back in the studio with Truth & Soul to cover the Velvet's classic. For once, I trust in the narrator of these warning signs. Aloe knows this girl to a “T,” possibly he's been burned himself – you can hear the conviction in his voice.

Seriously though, why did Lou Reed let Nico sing that song?

The 7-inch single of this cover is in the Stones Throw store now.
