Turning heads

I never did come back and write anything after the Dean & Britta show a couple weeks back, but rest assured, it was fantastic.
The duo is better than anybody out there at reinterpreting the pimptastic sort of late 1960s and 1970s songwriters. They indiefy those sorta lush, French-sounding, loungy pop songs from the likes of Lee Hazlewood and Serge Gainsbourg (who, obviously, is French).

So check out this new video, which features Britta (who Dean describes as "very feminine and gorgeous in a Scandinavian way, with high cheekbones and big, green eyes") on vocals (and bicycle). And Demitri Martin, for some reason...

Dean has a book coming out about his rock 'n' roll days, a memoir of touring and recording in a band that never quite broke through.
It's called Black Postcards, and Men's Vogue has published an excerpt.
