As if the world wasn't already full of happiness and joy today with Kylie's latest album Aphrodite playing on repeat on my iPod, but today I get two more new songs from Ms Minogue?
Mighty Rivers reminds me a bit of one of her other B-Sides, "Tight Rope", in its equally pulsating and yearning type of feel, tinged with just a bit of 80s new wave.
Love this from the very beginning when we hear ocean waves, right up to when the music drops out at the 2:38 mark and Robot Kylie takes over!!!
Heartstrings is lush and would've fit quite well on Aphrodite. It feels like diving into cotton candy and swirly caramel desserts. It's like a harp being plucked and each note comes alive. It's also got a bit of Can't Get You Out Of My Head beating around there in the background.
