Deep Dark Robot feat. Linda Perry

Linda Perry playing the High Dive? And I said hey, yeah, yeah, yeah-ha, hey-yeah-ha, what’s goin’ on? Christ, where to start? How about 4 Non Blondes: Perry, looking like a lesbian steampunk Slash, fronted that act, whose smash-hit single, “What’s Up?,” has gone on to become the most grating track in karaoke history. Since then, she’s made a mint penning and producing songs for the likes of Pink, Christina Aguilera, Sheryl Crow, and James Blunt, the former British infantryman who took the art of eye-fucking cameras to unprecedented heights/depths. Fresh off a SXSW stint, Perry’s voice has only gotten Kim Carnes-ier with age, which, for some people, sounds about as good as eating a bowl full of lit cigarettes. Others praise her range to no end. So, yeah, Perry’s plenty polarizing. With The Stereo Sons. MIKE SEELY
