170809_lissytrullieExpanded set includes duet with Adam Green

Our review was rather underwhelmed by New Yorker Lissy Trullie’s debut EP Self-Taught Learner when it was first released a few months ago [review], so we’ll be cocking a cautious ear to the four new tracks that will bolster the newly announced reissue of said EP in October through Lissy’s new label Downtown Records. The most interesting among these is a cover of Biz Markie’s 1989 novelty hit ‘Just A Friend’, recorded as a duet with ex-Moldy Peach Adam Green, with whom she’ll be touring the UK in September now that her band has recovered from the bout of swine flu that forced them to cancel dates in June. The other songs are two new studio tracks and a previously unreleased demo. In addition to her tour, this autumn will see Lissy going into the studio with Bernard Butler to work on songs for her debut album, due out early next year. Meanwhile, her cover of Hot Chip’s ‘Ready For The Floor’ will feature on the soundtrack of ‘Juno’ director Diablo Cody’s latest movie, ‘Jennifer’s Body’.
