Good chance this is already topping your list for best dance album of 2008, but in case you haven’t heard it yet — head here and stream the whole thing (you have to register but it’s worth it). As we saw with “Blind,” Antony lends his voice and name to lots of Hercules & Love Affair’s tracks, but the star of course is Andy Butler’s production, each track better, more mood-altering than the next. Go listen, and then go read Nick Sylvester’s great post on why “this album is tremendous” and his hopes that you fall in love, whatever your motives. We’re doing our part, Nick.
Hercules & Love Affair is out in the UK 3/10 via DFA/EMI. Also, here’s the album art for you to plaster everywhere.
