New Scissor Sisters: "I Can't Decide"

Thanks to Fluxblog, here is a live recording of a new track from New York's reigning disco-diva throwback group, Scissor Sisters. This is described by singer Ana Matronic as "a hot little banjo ditty."

"I Can't Decide" - Live at the Mercury Lounge, April 2006 - Scissor Sisters

Their new disc comes out this fall, and features none other than their sonic idol Elton John on the piano keys for one track ("I Don't Feel Like Dancing"). I, personally, am NOT an Elton fan - but some of their stuff is undeniably good fun.

I must say that if I am gonna listen to the Scissor Sisters, I vastly prefer this killer remix of Filthy/Gorgeous, which will make anyone feel sassy. Just listen to that thumping bass drumbeat, and lyrics that make me blush a little bit ("wrap your fuzzy with a big red bow"?!)

Have you listened to Elton's early work by chance? Specifically, "Tumbleweed Connection," "Madman Across the Water," "Honky Chateau" and his self-titled. I noticed you dig a lot of rootsy, Americana, and soul music, and I really dig John's early work for the way it filters those influences through piano pop.

I'm not huge on his later stuff (even Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is a bit too glossy for me), but his early stuff was rawer and had a relative edge.
