Currently listening to...

...the apocalyptic luxury and sonic density of "You Can Dance" by Bryan Ferry; taken from his 2010 release "Olympia" which saw him collaborating with original Roxy Music members Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, and Andy Mackay. I love how this song starts with a sample from the song "True To Life," off of "Avalon," Roxy Music's 1982 swan song. But the sample here gets laid under a sinuous, dangerous track. This is not 1982. Things are leaner and tighter (and colder) now.

And I must say that age becomes Ferry.

I am actually quite fond of this marvelous remix of the song by Tim Roe:
