Next week, Gossip is coming to Amsterdam, and so it may not be amiss to post this playlist (which was put together before I heard of their visit).

Gossip – singer Beth Ditto, guitarist Nathan Howdeshell, and drummer Hannah Blilie – hails from Portland, Oregon, and made its breakthrough in the UK some years ago. The two albums that have been released since then have kept them in the public eye and ear, and the current hit “Move in the Right Direction” has been circulating widely through the internet these last couple of weeks.
