Fresh Track: Kisses “Funny Heartbeat”

In 2010, the boy/girl-friend duo of Jesse Kivel and Zinzi Edmundson recorded one of the most underrated releases of the past few years.  Their airy, nu disco record The Heart of The Nightlife took its name to heart as a euphoric soundtrack of dancing the night away.  Since then, Kisses has remained largely silent, as Kivel released a new album earlier this year with his main project Princeton.  The wait, thankfully, is now over as the two released a new single entitled “Funny Heartbeat” yesterday.  Continuing on their first release, the song is a happy mood lifter that drops a beat and gets those feet moving.  Below, listen for free and download the track for a dollar.  You know, Saturday night is only a few more days away…

Video: Kisses “Bermuda”

The stretch from Indianapolis to Cincinnati isn’t long, but hung over, it certainly isn’t very enjoyable.  On my way home from a rendezvous with old friends the evening prior; I decided to go the Shuffle route to get me home.  The first song up happened to be from Kisses, the new-disco duo composed of Jesse Kivel and girlfriend Zinzi Edmundson.  The duo released their first self-titled EP in late 2010, and really, it’s an album that I overlooked throughout much of 2011.  Described by me as beach disco, it’s a dance album of songs that sound sadder than you’d expect.  Below you’ll find a video of the two performing “Bermuda” acoustically along with the original album version.  Which do you prefer?
