Rainbow Arabia released its Without You 7″ (limited 500 copies) and digital download yesterday in promotion for its Boys And Diamonds album on Kompakt and US tour with Spoek Mathambo. Bring something to bang on!
Rainbow Arabia is streaming an alternate version of the The Without You 7″ with a remix by LA electronic duo Nguzunguzu available for download, but you should have nabbed that weeks ago. With each listen to “Without You” I have to fight off my urges to feather my hair, adorn a white blazer and start a conga line with my uber-stylish friends. Why can't it be 20 years ago and “Without You” is playing at the end of Less Than Zero as the photo of high school friends float pass and we learn a valuable lesson about freebasing and male prostitution? Seriously though, I am such an 80's baby for liking this song, but hey when you grow up in the age of androgyny the girly things never lose appeal.
