Listening The Cherry Thing

The freeform jazz, the violent noise that The Thing create and the honeydew, soulful voice of Neneh Cherry - to think of it they seem totally unmatched. But the album is definitely in the 10 best to have come out this year.
Their version of Suicide's 'Dream Baby Dream' is my favorite track of the year. Cherry turns the words into a calming, hypnotic chant and then, the bass hook on loop gives way to some of the best sax freak out in recent times.
