Congratulations are in order for The Foreign Exchange whose "House of Cards" was chosen as NPR's Song of the Day today. "House of Cards" is but one of an album's worth of fine, noteworthy songs from the ridiculously good Leave It All Behind. Writer John Murph calls the song "sensual but scalding," which is an apropos description of the sublime tune. I applaud NPR for branching out and covering the wide spectrum music with their Song of the Day series and including The Foreign Exchange. I'm just going to ignore the smattering of obviously deaf and daft commenters over there and wrap myself up in the warm memories I have of recently seeing this song performed live. And since sharing is caring, here is the video that I shot of The Foreign Exchange featuring Muhsinah and Yahzarah performing "House of Cards" and some other gems after the bounce.
Phonte gives a live relationship seminar to the audience.
Then it was time to kick off our shoes and take off the blues.
After we two-stepped, it was time to slow it down to the ethereal "Daykeeper."
The Foreign Exchange live is "Something to Behold," indeed. 12 piece, fried hard. You better ask somebody.
Phonte is bringing back New Jack Swing one Keith Sweat record at a time. Stick around for the dance break with Zo!
