And now, because bands remixing their own work in dramatic ways is always fascinating to me, here is Skunk Anansie, with a stripped down and revamped version of Hedonism, from their new (and first ever) live album/DVD, An Acoustic Skunk Anansie – Live in London, set to be released in September 2013.
The arrangement is not that dramatically different from the original, but the switch to acoustic does give Skin room to fill the empty spaces with her magnificent voice.

Z Berg (JJAMZ, The Like) has kicked off her solo career with some acoustic tunes. There are four altogether, all quite good. The acoustic format showcases both her voice – sunny with a touch of smoke, delicate, sweet but not cloyingly so – and the glimmering sharpness of the lyrics.
These two are the ones I particularly like.
First up: Charades, which I have a feeling is the one I will be humming while walking barefoot in summer rainstorms from now on:

And second: I Fall For the Same Face, which is for anyone who has ever, like me, looked at the rogue’s gallery of their objets d’affection and muttered I have a type and a problem with rueful amusement.
